Lied van de week : week 52 - 2012

Two fingers - Jake Bugg


 
Jake Bugg is de nieuwste sensatie uit het Verenigd Koninkrijk, en met dit lekker ouderwets klinkend nummer is het niet moeilijk voor te stellen waarom dat zo is. Hij brengt een soort synthese van meer dan 50 jaar Britse popmuziek.

Je vindt dit nummer ook op zijn titelloos debuutalbum, dat je hier kan kopen.

Lyrics:

I drink to remember, I smoke to forget
Some things to be proud of, some stuff to regret
Run down some dark alleys in my own head
Something is changing, changing, changing

 

I go back to Clifton to see my old friends
The best people I could ever have met
Skin up a fat one, hide from the Feds
Something is changing, changing, changing

 

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
Light a cigarette and wish the world away
I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay
So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay

 

Down in the kitchen, drinking white lightning
He's with my momma, yelling and fighting
It's not the first time praying for silence
Something is changing, changing, changing

 

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
Light a cigarette and wish the world away
I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay
So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay

 

There's a story for every corner of this place
Running so hard you got out but your knees got grazed
I'm an old dog but I learned some new tricks yeah

 

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
Light a cigarette and wish the world away
I got out I got out I'm alive and I'm here to stay
So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
I got out I got out I'm alive and I'm here to stay

 

Hey, hey it's fine
Hey, hey it's fine
Hey, hey it's fine
I left it behind
