Graham Coxon – Love Travels at Illegal Speeds

Standing On My Own Again

Standing on the shore watching our ship go down
Sinking in the sand and I can’t turn around
Future’s looking black and it’s a sight to see
Just a thousand grey waves crashing over me
Just a thousand grey waves breaking over me

Now it’s happening to me
Why can’t I ever see?
Am I gonna let you leave without a sound?
Watching ’til you’re out of sight
Dreaming I did something right
Standing on my own again

Water in my lungs and it’s a pain to breathe
Salt is in my eyes and it’s a pain to see
I can’t stand the pressure though you think I can
Just don’t wanna see it going down the pan
Just don’t wanna see it going down the pan

Now it’s happening to me
Why can’t I ever see?
Am I gonna let you leave without a sound?
Pushing you to your wit’s end
Guess I’m gonna lose a friend
Standing on my own again

Now it’s happening to me
Why can’t I ever see?
Am I gonna let you leave without a sound?
Watching ’til you’re out of sight
Dreaming I did something right
Standing on my own again

In generale l’album, che anche questa sera in un modo o nell’altro è riapparso, ma proprio questa canzone almeno una volta alla settimana me la ascolto da un po’ di tempo. Che non è tanto il contenuto, forse un po’ il titolo ma neanche.
Però il ritmo e tutto il resto si riflettono un sacco nella mia atmosfera e del mondo che mi gira intorno, o a cui io giro attorno, in questo periodo.
