Always wondered what the murmuring in the instrumental of The Bones of You was? It used to be done by the strings but on the tour Guy does it, I sort of heard "And I'm freefalling" but please do correct me

As far as I know it's not anything.
I think I read/heard somewhere that Guy deliberately made it 'nonsense' but I am open to correction.
Anyone?

I'm 99% sure Guy said it was complete nonsense on the commentary for the Abbey Road DVD as he had a hard time transcribing it for the choir.

You know I could swear he's saying something when he does it live. I translated it the other day as "And I fart when I'm freefalling," which sounds pretty damn likely to me.  Razz

Bump
Guy has definitely put words to it now, and I interpret those words as "I've seen those stairs before me/did not know where they go"

Did anyone catch the iTunes gig? There's definitely some new words to the middle part now, so far as I can judge. I'm not sure they are actually the same as that last set you transcribed - something like:

(???) couldn’t find you, but I know where you were
I just couldn't love (???) you (????) you anywhere
a thousand miles behind you (????)
you know your name

I found a lot of it unintelligible but maybe I'm at a disadvantage since I'm not native to the English accent at all

Aug 2011 Reading Festival video has the camera on a girl in the choir for a couple seconds.  You can read her lips and it looks like I "I fall and I find I'm all by myself" or  "...I fall and I find all of a sudden".  I definitely hear "all of a sudden" on the Itunes show.

But that doesn't jive with Abby Road.

And now of course there's this, which is awesome:
