Pressure pushing down on me, pushing down on you…

Okay, I have always liked this song – it’s a brilliant song! Recently heard of this “no vocals” version and listened to it and loved this version as well! Partly because it highlights both how good the vocals are and the music is as well, as I found myself just imagining all the music in with it.

BUT, as with many of the songs I have loved over the years, I never looked closely at the lyrics. I found myself incredibly moved with this version as it helped me to listen closely to the words!  What a song for our time now, both with the quarantine and pandemic and with division and strife in our nation and with financial crises that people are facing as well. “Watching some good friends screaming, ‘Let me out!'” This preaches!  Take a listen and a read and enjoy. And let’s give love one more chance!

It’s the terror of knowing what this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming, ‘Let me out’
Pray tomorrow gets me higher, higher, high
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don’t work
Keep coming up with love but it’s so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?
Love, love, love, love, love
Insanity laughs under pressure we’re breaking
Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can’t we give love that one more chance?
Why can’t we give love, give love, give love, give love
Give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?
‘Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure
