Song of The Day

[…]
My mind is racing take me home
My body’s aching so alone
I’ll make you want to stay with me
Befriended by the enemy, one more time
And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now

Siamo nel 1995.
Ho compiuto i miei (primi) diciotto anni solo 3 giorni prima quando il 6 giugno di quell’anno i Soul Asylum regalano all’ascolto dei loro fan un nuovo disco: Let Your Dim Light Shine. La traccia più gettonata è impossibile non ricordarla: Misery  ma la mia traccia preferita era allora e rimane tutt’ora questa:

Promises Broken iniziò ad essere apprezzata dalle radio solo l’anno successivo, nel 1996, un gran peccato a mio parere perché è meravigliosa.

Oggi mi sono svegliata con David Pirner in testa  perciò, a chi vorrà soffermarsi, buon ascolto!

PROMISES BROKEN

Streets are filled with broken glass
You get buried by the past
And give me just a little taste
Lay this mess to waste, take me home
My mind is racing take me home
My body’s aching so alone
I’ll make you want to stay with me
Befriended by the enemy, one more time
And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now
Looking outside from my window sill
Throw another coin in the wishing well
Never find what you’re looking for
Fifteen miles, your dim light shines from so far away
Your sad smile is all I see when I say
That every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
And all these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now
From the hotel satellite
Don’t look like you’re living right
Here’s a deal you can’t refuse
You ain’t got as much to lose
Can you tell your troubles to
Someone who won’t laugh at you, it’s all right
As I watch you walk away
Hope a part of you would stay and it’s all right
And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now
