Blood Diamonds (feat. Grimes) - Phone Sex (4AD)

Phone Sex is a song by Canadian producer Blood Diamonds and features Grimes, released as a promotional single for the extended play of the same name. The duo is close friends and has since reunited and worked together on the 2014 single Go. Grimes sang Phone Sex multiple times at the Rhinestone Cowgirls and Ac!d Reign tours.

Background

Grimes said the following about the track: "The song came after a sleepless night in Mike's room, sipping gin and reading Nabokov over the holidays in Vancouver. It's our ultimate pop fantasy brought to life".

Blood Diamonds later added: "We wanted to do a big pop song and wrote it in my bedroom in a night. Within the same week, I played the track at a Blood Diamonds show with Claire as the secret guest. It was ridiculous. We wore LED glasses and projected the PS2 game Rez into the mise-en-scene of Twin Peaks, whilst performing on a slippery stage due to the opening act (ice skaters on fake ice dancing to a David Lynch cover orchestra). Later that month, I reproduced Phone Sex with halo drums and we re-wrote the lyrics together. When Claire came over to work on those, I didn't have my phone on me and she slept on my complex's porch for half an hour, I still feel bad about it. The song was mixed down in Kansas City on a board which was also used for Thriller (mostly did this for laughs)".

Lyrics

Make my eyes, mother's weep
All I see, is losing me
Oh my love, love, love, love

Talk to god, on the phone
Born to win, I'm not alone
Please daddy, take me home

(Talk to god)

Please daddy, take me home
Please daddy, talk to god
Please daddy, take me home
Please daddy, talk to god

Hey daddy, hey daddy, I'm okay
Livin' my love in a serious way
Oh, hey daddy, hey daddy, it's too soon
I am living on the moon
Hey daddy, hey daddy, I'm okay
Livin' my love in a serious way
Oh, hey daddy, hey daddy, it's too soon
I am living on the moon

Make my eyes, mother's weep
All I see, is losing me
Oh my love, love, love, love

Talk to god, on the phone
Born to win, I'm not alone
Hey daddy, take me home

(Talk to god)

Hey daddy, hey daddy, I'm okay
Livin' my love in a serious way
Oh, hey daddy, hey daddy, it's too soon
I am living on the moon´
Hey daddy, hey daddy, I'm okay
Livin' my love in a serious way
Oh, hey daddy, hey daddy, it's too soon
I am living on the moon
Hey daddy, hey daddy, I'm okay
Livin' my love in a serious way
Oh, hey daddy, hey daddy, it's too soon
I am living on the moon
Hey daddy, hey daddy, I'm okay
Livin' my love in a serious way
Oh, hey daddy, hey daddy, it's too soon
I am living on the moon
