Word of The Week 7th March 2022

Missing Person- Del Amitri 

 

I am lipsticked like a tart 

in the cherry red of Côtes-du-Rhône  

Prodding at the little fire of my phone.  

The lights behind the bar 

twinkle like they’ve always known  

Only desperate little men ever drink alone.  

 

But as long as I’m here, I ain’t drinking beer 

I’m vanishing  

I’m a missing person doing my thing.  

 

As midnight strikes 

I slip into this queen of dives 

And quietly oblivion like sleep arrives 

But I couldn’t live without 

this sewer of a place to be 

Alone with my one obsession - me, me, me 

Yeh, I can hear her remonstrate 

you fool, that’s three.  

 

What I’m doing here, it ain’t drinking beer 

It’s vanishing 

I’m a missing person doing my thing.  

 

Missing the time I threw your crutch away 

And ruined a perfect day 

Now it’s all ruins from here to daybreak.  

 

So I hang on to my chair  

in this fish tank of sinking stars 

Pickling their memories in Mason jars 

I head out for a smoke 

leave your ghost there to hold my place  

And line up with the other cheaters 

in disgrace 

Like runners in exile 

From the human race.  

 

But as long as I’m here, this last brutal year 

Is vanishing  

I’m a missing person doing my thing. 

 

 

Bring It On – Gomez 

 

If I was inordinately different 

Than what you say 

I'd lie, I would lie 

If you could release me now 

You know that I won't hesitate 

To lie, I would lie 

 

Bring it on, make it right 

Bring it out, to the light 

Pick me up, satellite 

If it's wrong, make it right 

 

If I lied and told you that 

You're difficult or hard to take 

I'd lie, I'd still lie 

If you tried to please me now 

You know that I won't remonstrate 

But lie, I would lie 

 

Bring it on, make it right 

Bring it out, to the light 

Pick me up, satellite 

If it's wrong, make it right 

 

We like quiet nights on the island 

Weave battered stars round our heads 

We can reach new heights in this silence 

We're dragged slowly towards the edge 

 

Bring it on, make it right 

Bring it out, to the light 

Pick me up, satellite 

If it's wrong, make it right 

 

Bring it on, make it right 

Bring it out, to the light 

Pick me up, satellite 

If it's wrong, make it right 

 

If I was inordinately different
