Lied van de week: week 21 - 2014

We exist - Arcade Fire


Vorig jaar vond ik het album Reflektor van Arcade Fire het allerbeste. Daaruit is nu opnieuw een single gepuurd: We exist. Wat ik over dat nummer vind, kan je hier herlezen.

Je kan het album nog steeds hier kopen.

Lyrics:

Walking around head full of sound
Acting like we don't exist
Walk in a room stare out through you
Talking like we don't exist

 

But we exist
 

Daddy it's true, I'm different from you
But tell me why they treat me like this?
You turn away, what could I say
Not the first betrayed by a kiss

 

Maybe it's true
They're staring at you
When you walk in a room

 

Turn on us fine
Stare if you like
Or just let us through
Just let us through

 

Down on your knees
Begging us please
Praying that we don't exist

 

Daddy it's fine, I'm used to them now
But tell me why they treat me like this?
Is it because we do it like this?

 

Maybe it's true
They're staring at you
When you walk in a room

 

Turn on us fine
Stare if you like
Or just let us through
Just let us through

 

Let them stare
Let them stare
That's all right with you

 

But lose myself
If it turn away from you

 

Daddy told him to wait
Mother, I'm so scared
But will you watch us drown?
 

You know that they will
You know that we're young
You know that we're confused
But will you watch us drown?
What are you so afraid to lose?

 

Down on their knees
Begging us please
Praying that we don't exist

 

We exist
