Lied van de week: week 4 - 2014

She used to love me a lot - Johnny Cash


Dit jaar verschijnt er, postuum, nieuw werk van Johnny Cash. Ik hou enorm van de muziek van The man in black, zeker zijn later werk. Ik ben erg benieuwd naar wat men in de kluizen terugvond (al vind ik dat hele gedoe van "teruggevonden oud materiaal" vaak een vorm van boerenbedrog om fans geld te blijven aftroggelen). Maar het eerste nummer dat ons al toegestuud wordt, laat in dit geval wel het beste vermoeden.

Lyrics:

I saw her through the window today
She was sittin' in the Silver Spoon cafe
I started to keep going
But something made me stop
She used to love me a lot

She looked lonely and I knew the cure
Old memories would win her heart for sure
I thought I'd walk on in
And I give it my best shot
She used to love me a lot

I sat down beside her and she smiled
She said where have you been it's been awhile
She was glad to see me
I could almost read her thoughts
She used to love me a lot

She used to love me with a love that wouldn't die
Looking at her now I can't believe I said good-bye
It would only take a minute to turn back the clock
She used to love me a lot

I remember how good it was back then
And I said it's not to late to start again
We could spend a night together
Take up where we left off
She used to love me a lot

Then I panicked as she turned to walk away
As she went out the door I heard her say
Yes I'm in need of something
But it's something you ain't got
But I used to love you a lot

I thought she loved me with a love that wouldn't die
Looking at her now I can't believe she said good-bye
She just left me stading in there, I never been so shocked
She used to love me a lot
She used to love me a lot
She used to love me a lot ...
