A Song I Love || SBBC

20:28:00


Today's post is dedicated to a song that I particularly love. I have many "favourite" songs, so this is only one of them. I chose this because I love the meaning behind the song, and I adore the instrumental bits, and in general, it' a beautiful song.

I'm sure you'll have seen me talk about this band before, they're well known in the UK, but not so much anywhere else, which in my opinion is a good thing. It is of course "Lawson".


The song by them I picked is called "Standing In The Dark", and the lyrics are as follows

Sitting here wide awake
Thinking about when I last saw you
I know you're not far away
Close my eyes and I still see you
Lying here next to me
Wearing nothing but a smile
I gotta leave right away
Counting cracks along the pavement
To see you face to face
Thinking about the conversation
I know I'm not one to chase
I've never wanted nothing more
But as I walk into your door
I'm standing in the dark
She's dancing on the table
I'm looking through the glass
She's someone else's angel
It may sound stupid that I'm wanting you back
But I'm wanting you back girl
And now I'm standing in the dark
Dark, oh
Dark, dark
All I wanna do is hide
But I can't stop myself from staring
Wishing these hands were mine
But I can't stop myself from caring
And as he turns down the lights
I'm feeling paralyzed
And as he looks into her eyes
(Yeah, alright)
I'm standing in the dark
She's dancing on the table
I'm looking through the glass
She's someone else's angel
It may sound stupid that I'm wanting you back
But I'm wanting you back girl
And now I'm standing in the dark
Dark, oh
Dark, dark, oh
Dark, dark, oh
Dark, dark
Oh, ooh
I'm standing in the dark
I'm standing in the dark
I'm standing in the dark
She's dancing on the table
I'm looking through the glass
She's someone else's angel
It may sound stupid that I'm wanting you back
But I'm wanting you back girl
And now I'm standing in the dark
Dark, oh
Dark, dark, oh
Dark, dark
She's someone else's angel
She's someone else's angel
The song is about losing the one you love. The lead singer (Andy Brown) was in a relationship, and she broke it off with him. It was obviously very serious, and he was distraught when she left him. When she goes to see her, he finds out that she's already moved on, "She's someone else's angel" and he's heartbroken, as he's never stopped loving her, but it's too late. He is left "standing in the dark" all on his own.

The song itself has a sad meaning, but the actual song is beautiful and it makes me feel sad and happy, all at the same time when I listen to it.

If you are interested, you can buy the song here if you're from the UK.

Short post today, but I don't feel it needed to be any longer. Thanks for reading!
