Get hot,
Get too close to the flame;
Wild, open space,
Talk like an open book;
Sign me up.

Got no time to take a picture,
I'll remember someday,
All the chances we took.
We're so close to something,
Better left unknown;
We're so close to something,
Better left unknown.
I can feel it in my bones.

Gimmie sympathy,
After all of this is gone;
Who'd you rather be,
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oh, seriously,
You're gonna make mistakes, you're young;
Come on, baby, play me something,
Like,
Here Comes The Sun;
Come on, baby, play me something,
Like,
Here Comes The Sun.

Don't go,
Stay with the all unknown;
Stay away from the hooks,
All the chances we took.
We're so close to something,
Better left unknown;
We're so close to something,
Better left unknown.
I can feel it in my bones.

Gimmie sympathy,
After all of this is gone;
Who'd you rather be,
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oh, seriously,
You're gonna make mistakes, you're young;
Come on, baby, play me something,
Like,
Here Comes The Sun;
Come on, baby, play me something,
Like,
Here Comes The Sun.

Come on, baby, play me something,
Like,
Here Comes The Sun;
Come on, baby, play me something,
Like,
Here Comes The Sun;
Come on, baby, play me something,
Like,
Here Comes The Sun.

The album was written by the band in a farmhouse outside Seattle, Washington, and by frontwoman Emily Haines in exile in Argentina. It was recorded at guitarist Jimmy Shaw's own Giant Studio in Toronto, Ontario, mixed at Electric Lady Studios in New York City by Grammy winner John O'Mahony, and produced by Gavin Brown and James Shaw. At the 2010 Juno Awards, Fantasies was the winner of the Alternative Album of the Year, and Metric was selected as the Group of the Year.
