Entry Number: 2

This song is my latest obsession because I can’t get the vision of David singing it out of my head.  It’s by Jeff Beck featuring Imogen Heap (one of the few people David follows on Twitter).  The song has a haunting, sensual  vibe and I love the lyrics, the Jason Mraz style “rap” and how she takes the melody EVERYWHERE.

Blanket

Written by Jeff Beck

Performed by Imogene Heap

 

Emotionless the city lies
Cruel it is, it clouds my eyes
The dull the dark shades on my day
I live inside this place

I see only what i wanna see
I’ll be only who i wanna be
My blanket covers me, yes

Now as a youthful man I was body poppin breakin on the lino
Traded in my lino for a pad and a biro
and I Used to stand in line just so as I could sign my giro
But now my ends meet in the best way that I know
(Hat, snare, kick) and the beats that go boom
music I consume to escape the doom and gloom
beats and melodies keep realities at bay
But what happens when the records done and starts to fade away”

Alone within myself again
I try to veil away my pain
Above the concrete fields below
with you I wanna go, wanna go, wanna go

I see only what I wanna see
I’ll be only who I wanna be
My blanket covers me, covers me, covers me, covers me

I see only what I wanna see
I’ll be only who I wanna be
My blanket covers me, yes

You are my living world
You are my living world
You are you are you are my
My only living world….

I see only what i wanna see
I’ll be only who i wanna be
My blanket covers me, covers me, covers me, covers me

I’ll be only who i wanna be
I see only what i wanna see
My blanket covers me…
