LYRICS:

“Who are you? What you really do?
When you have to fight the agony
That’s aiming back at you?
Who are you? Who you run to?
Depend, defend, hope on?
Can you function on your own?

Are you from those who will swallow down
The pain, disgrace, the sadness (Yeah)
When the one you love so much
Can take your soul and break it? (No)

Wait for, oh wait for
What I waited for?
Wait for, oh wait for
On no, I’m done

Walking out
Whatever I’ve built
I’m gonna burn down
I’m walking out
You’re no more a king
‘Cuz I was your crown

First you said, you would die for me
But in the end I was the one
Bleeding all alone
First you said you kneeled, you swore
You loved, you lived for me
How could you forget it all?

Are you from those who can take a loving heart
And squeeze it out of love?
Than prepare to slowly get
Not loved but hated instead

Walking out
Whatever I’ve built
I’m gonna burn down
I’m walking out
You’re no more a king
‘Cuz I was your crown

Walking out, walking out
No crying now
Walking out, walking out
No begging
Walking out
At last, I feel proud
I’m walking out

You knew that my heart wasn’t small
But somehow you came and filled it all

Walking out
Whatever I’ve built
I’m gonna burn down
I’m walking out
You’re no more a king
‘Cuz I was your crown

Walking out, walking out
No crying now
Walking out, walking out
No begging
Walking out
At last, I feel proud
I’m walking out”

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
