Pure Bliss | Flight Facilities x Emma Louise – ‘Two Bodies’

Normally, I’d sit here and write a few blurbs (or more if I’m ranting) about music and culture, but for this post the words have already been provided on behalf of Emma Louise.

I’m talking about the illusive, magnetic, and compelling lyrics that Emma Louise sings in Flight Facilities new single, “Two Bodies.”

Read the lyrics and be sure to watch the video for this intoxicating single that you can listen to on Flight Facilities’ debut album, Down To Earth.

“Two Bodies”

I didn’t understand it at the time. I fail to achieve any degree of understanding in the ensuing years, which are three in number. I presume Herb means that inherently you cannot be commercial and artistic. You cannot be commercial and quality. You cannot be commercial concurrent with have a preoccupation with the level of storytelling that you want to achieve. And this I have to reject. I don’t think calling something commercial tags it with a kind of an odious suggestion that it stinks, that it’s something raunchy to be ashamed of. I don’t think if you say commercial means to be publicly acceptable, what’s wrong with that?
As long as you are not ashamed of anything you write if you’re a writer, as long as you’re not ashamed of anything you perform if you’re an actor, and I’m not ashamed of anything.
This is the area I know. But I think innate in what Herb says is the suggestion made by many people that you can’t have public acceptance and still be artistic. And, as I said, I have to reject that.

Just two bodies
Just two bodies

I’ve been so ready to dim my mind

Come over or not, I’ve 
Been so ready to dim my mind
Your body a drug, for mine
Two bodies moving in
Time and space to try and heal me
I know what I want, so come over and


Hold me, I won’t ask for anything more
I’m hurting, use now when I’m vulnerable
It helps me fake some love for a little while
I know what I want, so take advantage of me

You’re closed, you’re a book. No lines
Can’t read you if I try
And if that’s the way you want it
That’s fine I’ll just close my eyes and
Try to ignore you, a free ride for you to

Just two bodies
Just two bodies
