Song of the Day: Emerge by Fischerspooner

“Emerge” is an electroclash song and the first single from debut album #1 by Fischerspooner.

Lyrics:

Hi, Huh-i
Hyper, Hyper-media-ocrity

You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away

Feels good, looks good
Sounds good, looks good
Feels good too, feels good too
Uh-huh, that’s right
Feels good too
Uh-huh, that’s right

You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away
You don’t need
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away

You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away
You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away

Uh huh, that’s right
Uh huh, that’s right
You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away
You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away

You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away
You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away

Look alive
You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away

You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away
You don’t need to
Emerge from nothing
You don’t need to
Tear away
