Lied van de week : week 11 - 2011

Under cover of darkness - The Strokes






Iets meer dan een maand geleden postte ik hier al over de nieuwe single van The Strokes, die toen tijdelijk gratis te downloaden viel. Intussen is het nummer onweerstaanbaar bezit gaan nemen van mijn mp3-speler, de radio en nu dus ook van deze rubriek.

Het nummer staat op het nieuwe album, Angles, dat je hier kan kopen.

Lyrics :

Slip back out of whack,
At your best.
It's a nightmare,
So I'm joining the army.

Know how folks back out,
I'll still call.
Will you wait for me now?
We've got the right to live, fight to use it,
Got everything and you can just choose it,
I won't just be a puppet on a string.

Don't go that way.
I'll wait for you.

And I'm tired of all your friends
Listening at your door
And I want,
What's better for you.
So long, my friend
And adversary.
Oh, but I'll wait for you.

Get dressed, jump out of bed
You do it best.
Are you OK?
I've been out around this town
Everybody's singing the same song for ten years.

I'll wait for you.
Will you wait for me too?

And they sacrifice their lives,
And they're lying about those odds.
Oh they've said it a billion times,
And they'll say it again.
So long, my adversary
And friend.

Don't go that way.
I'll wait for you.
I'm tired of all your friends,
Knocking down your door.
Get up in the morning and give it your all.
So long, my friend
And adversary.
Oh I'll wait for you.
