Lied van de week: week 9 - 2015

Ballad of the mighty I - Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
 

Net als bij Oasis weet Noel Gallagher ook met zijn nieuwe band heerlijke singles uit te brengen, zoals deze. De inleiding tot de clip is overigens wel grappig en toont een vermogen tot zelfrelativering dat weinigen bij deze man vermoedden.

Je kan zijn album Chasing yesterday hier bestellen.

Lyrics:

I followed you down to the end of the world
To wait outside your window
A key to the rain, I’ll call your name,
But you just passed me by
You put me up like a fly on the wall
You’ll be to blame when the heavens fall
Give me a sign if you hear me call
You just passed me by
The colours around me are fading away


(Chorus)
And I’ll be in waiting, come what may I’ll find you
Yes, I’ll find you (Yes, I’ll find you)
If I’ve gotta be the man who walks the earth alone


I followed the stars and I sailed to the sun
And held it in my fingers
Alone on a beach on my own, out of reach
And you just passed me by
I’ll give you the world if you take my hand
But you left me alone in the sinking sand
Strike up the band for one last stand
You just passed me by
Show me the rules of the games you play


(Chorus)
And I’ll be waiting, come what may I’ll find you
Yes, I’ll find you (Yes, I’ll find you)
If I’ve gotta be the man who walks the earth I’ll find you
Yes, I’ll find you (Yes, I’ll find you)
Yes, I’ll find you (Yes, I’ll find you)
If I’ve gotta be the man who walks the earth alone


I followed you down to the end of the world
To wait outside your window
A key to the rain, I’ll call your name
but you just passed me by
Wherever you run, I’ll be on your tail
Wherever you’re hiding behind your veil


(Chorus)
I’ll find you, (Yes, I’ll find you)
If I’ve gotta be the man who walks the earth I’ll find you
I’ll find you (Yes, I’ll find you)
Yes, I’ll find you (Yes, I’ll find you)
If I’ve gotta be the man who walks the earth alone
