Lightning bolt - Jake Bugg


 

Af en toe eens luisteren naar Pinguinradio.nl (de opvolger van Kink FM) leidt soms tot mooie verrassingen. Zo ontdekte ik er deze Jake Bugg, die een beetje klinkt als een Engelse Daniel Johnston, én als de vroege Beatles. Dit singletje is erg aanstekelijk, en verdient ook bij ons grijsgedraaid te worden...

Dit nummer staat op zijn titelloze debuutplaat, die je hier kan kopen. Je kan er ook het nummer Saffron (mp3) gratis downloaden.

Lyrics:

Morning, it’s another pure grey morning
Don’t know what the day is holding
When I get uptight
And I walk right into the path of a lightning bolt

Sirens of an ambulance comes howling

Right through the centre of town and
No one blinks an eye
And I look up to the sky in the path of a lighting bolt

Met her as the angels parted for her

But she only brought me touture
But that’s what happens
When it’s you who’s standing in the path of a ligthning bolt

Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth

But I just stand by and I wait my time
They say you gotta tow the line they want the water not the wine
But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt

Chances, people tell you not to take chances

When they tell you there aren’t any answers
And I was starting to agree
But I awoke suddenly in the path of a lightning bolt

Fortune, people talking all about fortune

Do you make it or does it just call you.
In the blinking of an eye
Just another passerby in the path of a lightning bolt

Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth

But I just stand by and I wait my time
They say you gotta tow the line they want the water not the wine
But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt

It was silent, I was lying back gazing skyward

When the moment got shattered
I remembered what she said
And then she fled in the path of a lightning bolt
