Alright

Alright

I remember looking at Jim’s letter prompts a few weeks ago and thinking of songs, but I obviously failed to write them down (December became a generally chaotic month). So last week, I took a glance through our music collection to look for something I have not heard for a while.

Do you remember the Britpop band Cast? I believe they were from Liverpool. They had a few big songs and this was one of them. It is called “Alright” and is rather merry really for a break up song. You may be as shocked as I was to realize this song was released a whopping twenty-five years ago! Where has the time gone?

If you recognise the lead singer – it is because he was in The La’s … no? Anyone? The silence is deafening. Don’t you remember the iconic song “There She Goes Again“.

I guess I'm alright, guess I'm alright
I guess I'm doing fine, guess I'm doing fine
D'you think I miss you? D'you think I care?
D'you think I'd lay down and die?

You never even tried
You never even tried

Now it's about time, it's the right time
If you willed your mind, you willed your mind
So fly on swift now
On your journey home
And you've left the nest now, and you have flown

There ain't nothing you don't know
Ain't nothing you don't know

Look out to sea
And tell me what we came here for
Is it what they say or is there more than we can know
And if so
Which way am I to go?
Which way am I to go?

I guess I'm alright guess I'm alright
I guess I'm doing fine, guess I'm doing fine
Can't see no reasons
But not pushing through
So make like the wind that's blowing you

There ain't nothing you can't do
Ain't nothing you can't do
Ain't nothing you can't do
Ain't nothing you can't do
Ain't nothing you can't do
