Music Friday: The Kinks
Yeah I was born in an age of new and upcoming music, blessed with many different sounds of the past that have an echo in today’s music. As a child it was a rich time and as a teen one starts to find their own path. But I can never shake of the incredible sounds of the early days.
So I am taking you back a little, to years before I was born but can still make the people today smile.
Naturally I will try to use their very own lyrics to create something new. I hope you enjoy the read and songs.
Living on a thin line,
Tell me now, what are we supposed to do?
Well, yesterday was such an easy game for you to play
But let’s face it things are so much easier today.
A misty shadow spread its wings
And covered all the ground
And even though the sun was out
The rain came pouring down
Smudged mascara and pill-shaped eyes
Everything you want was bought with lies.
What more can I say now?
What more can I do?
No need to feel sad now.
You got all your friends,
I got a TV set.
You got your cars,
And this boy’s never had anything.
it’s dark and it could get lonely.
I am free.
I’m on an island
Since my girl left me behind
She said that I’m not her kind,
Well, I ain’t gonna wander,
Like the boy I used to know.
He’s a real unlucky fella,
And he’s got no place to go.
If you feel down and you’re under the weather
Have another drink and you’ll feel alright.
Won’t someone help me to break up this crown
Let’s all drink to the death of a clown
They said this was the last dance
The lights went dim as I looked round the floor
For you were my first love
And now it looks like you’ve gone
This week the music I tried to stay away from the usual.
