Sandpaper Kisses (3:51)

Cover of Quixotic

From Quixotic and 6 other releases

Martina Topley-Bird is a British vocalist who first gained fame as the featured female vocalist on trip hop pioneer Tricky’s debut album Maxinquaye (a printing error credited her as “Martine”). She continued her collaboration with Tricky on his follow-up albums Nearly God, Pre-Millennium Tension and Angels with Dirty Faces.

Following a falling-out of their professional and personal relationship in 1998, she began pursuing a solo career. It was not until 2003 that she released her debut album, Quixotic (Independiente Records), mainly produced by Martina and production team AMP9 (Alex McGowan, Steve Crittall, Nick Bird) at Space Eko Recording Studios London.

Lyrics:

Sandpaper kisses, papercut bliss
Don’t know what this is, but it all leads to this:
You’re gonna leave Her
You have deceived Her
Just a girl

Ooh just a girl with featherweight curls
To expose all she knows you play like tease
Just a girl with featherweight curls
To expose all she knows you play like tease

You’re gonna leave Her
You have deceived Her
Just a girl

I want the soul of something simple to
take home with me
The world as someplace simple it’s my
home you see

You’re gonna leave Her
You have deceived Her
Just a girl, a blood red pearl
