Lied van de week: week 17 - 2015

How could you babe - Tobias Jesso Jr.


Tobias Jesso Jr. valt ergens tussen Perfume Genius en Jens Lekman te situeren. Hij maakt muziek die op het eerste gehoor erg klef lijkt, maar wie goed luistert, ontdekt dat hij gewoon pareltjes van popsongs schrijft, een beetje zoals het beste van The Carpenters of zelfs Neil Diamond. Deze single toont het meest zijn verwantschap met Perfume Genius, ik dacht zelfs eerst dat het een liedje van laatstgenoemde was.

Je kan het album Goon hier kopen.

Lyrics:


[Verse 1]
So long, my only friend
I guess we gave it a try
And then I guess we tried again
I don't remember why
But nothing's as hard to do
As just saying goodbye
And when love is in the way, you gotta say
"I guess love ain't always right"

[Pre-Chorus]
And I find out you'd gone and met a new man
And told him he's the love of your life

[Chorus]
How could you, baby? (How could you, baby?)
How could you, baby? (How could you, baby?)
Well, how could you, baby? (How could you, baby?)

[Verse 2]
Well, have you lost your memories?
Did you wash 'em down the drain?
And did you have some help deciding
To forget my name?
Cause nothing I can say to you
Could ever ease this pain
I'm just waiting for the day when I can say
That you are mine again

[Pre-Chorus]
When I found out you'd gone and met a new man
I felt so lonely that I cried

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Well, how could you, baby?
How could you, baby?
How could you, baby?
How could you, baby?

[Pre-Chorus]
When I found out you'd gone and met a new man
I felt so lonely that I cried, I cried, I cried!

[Chorus]
