Stone Roses: Waterfall

Parents teach us a lot in life. Most of the time it’s because we’ve done something really stupid and we get into trouble and learn never to do that again…I’m talking thinking it’s a great idea to be a ten year old Lara Croft and hang from curtains until they come crashing to the floor along with the curtain rods.

I still deny any involvement in that incident to this day even if I was the only person in the room.

Witchcraft is the only plausible answer to what happened that dark day.

Sometimes though parents teach us worthwhile things.

My mum, Mama P, taught me about music and the Stone Roses.

So cheers Mama P you may have not believed my witchcraft excuse but you did introduce me to one hell of a cracking band.

Stone Roses – Waterfall

Chimes sing sunday morn
Today’s the day she’s sworn
To steal what she never could own
And race from this hole she calls home

Now you’re at the wheel
Tell me how, how does it feel?
So good to have equalised
To lift up the lids of your eyes

As the mile they disappear
See land begin to clear
Free from the filth and the scum
This american satelites won

She’ll carry on through it all
She’s a waterfall

She’ll carry on through it all
She’s a waterfall

See the steeple pine
The hills as old as time
Soon to be put to the test
To be whipped by the winds of the west

Stands on shifting sands
The scales held in her hands
The wind it just whips her away
And fills up her brigantine sails

She’ll carry on through it all
She’s a waterfall
She’ll carry on through it all

She’s a waterfall
