Lied van de week : week 34 - 2009

Weather to fly - Elbow


Dit is echt een groeinummer voor mij... Na weken en weken dit nummer van Elbow te horen, zit het nu zo ongeveer vastgebeiteld in mijn hoofd, maar dat is zeer terecht. Elbow maakt al jaren prachtige muziek en alle lof en "roem" die ze tegenwoordig krijgen, hebben ze dubbel en dik verdiend. Je moet ook maar eens naar hun vorige albums luisteren, en dan weet je dat dit een groep is die al lang veel méér verdiende...

Je vindt dit nummer op het album The seldom seen kid dat je hier kan kopen.

Lyrics :

Are we having the time of our life?
Are we having the time of our lives?
Are we coming across clear?
Are we coming across fine?
Are we part of the plan here?
Are we having the time of our lives?
Are we coming across clear?
Are we coming across fine?
Are we having the time of our lives?
Are we part of the plan here?

We have the driver and time on our hands
One little room and the biggest of plans.
The days were shaping up,
Frosty and bright.
Perfect weather to fly.

Perfect weather to fly.

Pounding the streets where my fathers feet still
Ring from the walls, we'd sing in the doorways, or bicker and row
Just figuring how we were wired inside
Perfect weather to fly.

So in looking to stray from the line
we decided instead we should pull out the thread
that was stitching us into this tapestry vile,
And why wouldn't you try?
Perfect weather to fly.

We have the driver and time on our hands
One little room and the biggest of plans.
The days were shaping up,
Frosty and bright.
Perfect weather to fly.
Perfect weather to fly.

Pounding the streets where my fathers feet still
Ring from the walls, we'd sing in the doorways, or bicker and row
Just figuring how we were wired inside
Perfect weather to fly.

So in looking to stray from the line
we decided instead we should pull out the thread
that was stitching us into this tapestry vile,
And why wouldn't you try?
Perfect weather to fly.
