quote: Did I crumble Did I lay down and die Oh no, not I! I will survive! Oh and as long as I know how to love I know I stay alive. I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give. And I'll survive! I will survive!
And then when I'm feeling more pensive. there's Twist in my sobriety by Tanita Tikaram who is such an under-appreciated artist:
quote: Look my eyes are just holograms Look your love has drawn red from my hands From my hands you know you'll never be More than twist in my sobriety
I think it was a running joke in the music press at the time that she couldn't explain her own lyrics, but I'm glad she didn't. To me it seems very much a cryptic personal story about moving on and telling someone they've hurt you, that they had control over you but now you're breaking free and this will just have been a footnote, a twist.
If anyone else has any songs like that, totally share them! So many good breakup songs and other stuff to choose from!
