I’ve Been Taking Chances

I’ve Been Taking Chances

I have not always understood some of the thought-provoking themes Jim has given us in recent weeks for Song Lyric Sunday, but I’ve been taking chances with my picks in the hopes that I was on the right track. This week Jim has asked us to feature songs that did not do so great in the charts perhaps but became fan favourites.

Well, here is a song that I thought was excellent, but somehow it “failed” in that it was the first single apparently from Florence & The Machine that did not have chart success. That actually surprises me. “Lover To Lover” did however please the critics, and it pleased me, and it is very much a fan favourite.

On a personal note, I do love to see someone with hair almost as red as mine dancing around the stage like there is no tomorrow – which is why I have always looked out for the next release from F&M.

I've been losing sleep,
I've been keeping myself awake,
I've been wandering the streets,
For days and days and days,

Going from road to road
Bed to bed
Lover to lover,
And black to red,

But I believe,
I believe...

There's no salvation for me now,
No space among the clouds,
And I feel I'm heading down,
But that's alright,
That's alright,
That's alright!
That's alright!

And I've been taking chances,
I've been setting myself up for the fall,
I've been keeping secrets,
From my heart and from my soul

Going from road to road,
Bed to bed,
Lover to lover,
Black to red,

But I believe,
I believe...
There's no salvation for me now,
No space among the clouds,
And I feel I'm heading down,
But that's alright,
That's alright,
That's alright!
That's alright!

Going from road to road,
And bed to bed,
And lover to lover,
And black to red,
And road to road,
Bed to bed,
And lover to lover!

No space among the clouds...
And I feel I'm heading down...
But that's alright,
That's alright,
That's alright!
That's alright!
That's alright!
That's alright!

Road to road!
Bed to bed!
And lover to lover!
And black to red!
And road to road!
Bed to bed!
Lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover
To lover to lover...

No salvation for me now...
No salvation for me now...
No salvation for me now...
No salvation for me now...
