So basics, I write a song lyric per week in my diary, usually from the song I've listened to most that week. As we're now halfway through 2013 (where does the time go etc. etc.) I thought I'd continue last year's tradition and post them here.
Bitch the end of your life is near,
We built this city on rock n roll,
Fuck your romance I wanna pretend that Jenny Lee Lindberg is my girlfriend,
I got you babe, (babe) (babe)
Diamonds are a girl's best friends,
I'm a man of means by no means,
Well I feel, I feel alive,
She's an indie rocker and nothing's gonna stop her,
He was a skater boy, she said to you later boy,
I'm a survivor, keep on surviving,
Everything is A-O-K cos I'm as strong as an O-A-K,
I am a shaky ladder, intergalactic matter,
She is the dancing queen,
In 5 years time we might not speak,
You've done too much, much too young
It's a long road up to recovery from here,
We were born to be alone, everybody all alone,
Get up and get down and get outside,
She makes me feel like I could see for miles,
I'm walking on sunshine,
It's the circle of life and it moves us all,
I'm on my way down out of the woods,
I crashed my car into the bridge, I don't care,
Let's spend the night together now I need you more than ever,
If you're so special, why aren't you dead?
Pass me a glass and a half-smoked cigarette, I've damn near got no dignity left.
It's odd how these few words evoke the week/day they were written about. The power of music mate.
