Song of the Week 2#

This week, we feature Keane’s song “Spiralling”.  Why?  Because I just like its 80’s tune.

Spiralling means ‘moving in circle’.  It can also mean that ‘you’re going back to the beginning’  instead of ‘making progress’.

 

The lyric:

I’m waiting
For my moment to come
I’m waiting
For the _______ to begin
I’m waiting
For a revelation
I’m waiting for someone
To count me in

‘Cos now
I only see my dreams
In _______ I touch
Feel their cold hands on
Everything that I love
Cold like some
Magnificant skyline
Out of my reach
But always
In my eyeline now

We’re tumbling down
We’re spiralling
Tied up to the _______ 
We’re spiralling

I fashioned you
From jewels and stone
I made you
In the image of ______
I gave you
Everything you wanted
So you would never know
Anything else

But everytime
I reach for you
You slip
Through my _______
Into cold sunlight
Laughing at the things
That I had planned
The map of my world gets
Smaller as I sit here
Pulling at the loose
Threads now

Did you wanna be a winner?
Did you wanna be an icon?
Did you wanna be famous?
Did you wanna be the _______?
Did you wanna start a war?
Did you wanna have a family?
Did you wanna be in love?
Did you wanna be in love?

I never saw the light
I never saw the light
I waited up all night
But I never saw the light

When we fall in love
We’re just falling
In love with ourselves
We’re spiralling
We’re tumbling down
We’re spiralling
Tied up to the _______
We’re spiralling

 

Can you hear what’s in the gaps?

    I think this MV look a little terrible.

    But it’s a good song.
