Lied van de week : week 12 - 2012

People help the people - Birdy



Birdy is nog heel jong, heeft een album uit met covers, die niet allemaal even geslaagd zijn (maar waar we toch nog onze gading op vinden) en met deze single, People help the people, heeft ze zich intussen ook in ons muzikaal geheugen genesteld.

Je kan het album Birdy hier kopen.

Lyrics :

God knows what is hiding in that weak and drunken heart
I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry
Those hardfaced queens of misadventure
God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes
A firy throng of muted angels
Giving love and getting nothing back

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
And nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain,
Oh and if I had a brain

I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

God knows what is hiding, in that world of little consequence
Behind the tears, inside the lies
A thousand slowly dying sunsets
God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
I guess the loneliness came knocking
No on needs to be alone, oh save me

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain,
Oh and if I had a brain

I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away

People help the people
And if your homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain,
Oh and if I had a brain

I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned, all those good hearts away
