Song lyric Sunday – sit down


For this week’s song lyric Sunday, I have chosen the song sit down by James. I hope everybody remembers the dance?

 

Sit Down
I sing myself to sleep
A song from the darkest hour
Secrets I can’t keep
In sight of the day
Swing from high to deep
Extremes of sweet and sour
Hope that God exists
I hope, I pray
Drawn by the undertow
My life is out of control
I believe this wave will bear my weight
So let it flow
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down, down, down, down, down
In sympathy
Now I’m relieved to hear
That you’ve been to some far out places
It’s hard to carry on
When you feel all alone
Now I’ve swung back down again
And it’s worse than it was before
If I hadn’t seen such riches
I could live with being poor
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down, down, down, down, down
In sympathy
Those who feel the breath of sadness
Sit down next to me
Those who find they’re touched by madness
Sit down next to me
Those who find themselves ridiculous
Sit down next to me
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate
Down
Down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down, down, down, down, down
In sympathy
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down, down, down, down, down
In sympathy
Down

  1. I like the song and the video, thanks for joining in. Seeing the dogs and having the word sit reminded me of one day when I was walking my dog and these two really big dogs came running at us and all I could think about doing was to say sit and they both listened, which made me glad.

    1. I think the song is just as relevant now as was back then. I mean, we should all just sit down together because everybody is the same and we should just realise everybody is equal no matter what.
      That’s a really good story about dogs 🙂 I can’t I have anything like that to say. I think the dog is in the video because it is not only humans that there are equals but animals as well 🙂
      happy drawing in. Thank you for reading, commenting, and hosting.
