Show of Strength Lyrics - Echo & The Bunnymen

Review The Song (2)



Realistically
It's hard to dig it all too happily
But I can see
It's not always that real to me
A funny thing
Is always a funny thing
Though sadly things
Just get in the way


Open to suggestion
Falling over questions


Hopefully
But that's as well as maybe
A shaking hand
Won't transmit all fidelity
Your golden smile
Would shame a politician
sponsored links
Typically
I'll apologise next time


Bonds will break and fade
Go snapping all in two
The lies that bind the tie
Come sailing out of you


Realistically,
Hard to dig it all too happily
But I can see,
Not always that real to me
A funny thing
Is always a funny thing
And those sadly things
Is always a sadly thing


Bonds will break and fade
A snapping all in two
The lies that bind the tie
Come sailing out of you


A show of strength
Is all you want
You can never set it down...


Guts and passion
Those things you can't
Even set down
All those things you think might count
You can't ever set them down
Don't ever set them down
Never set them down
Hey, I came in right on cue
One is me and one is you...
Hey, I came in right on cue
One is me and one is you...

I have to agree with the above review. The only reason for checking the lyrics here in 2007 is to check that it really was "And those sadly things/Is always a sadly thing". And of course it was.
Why I should care all these years later, and to try and figure out what it really means might ruin my enjoyment of the music. Thanks stanislars for the timely reminder to just flaming well enjoy it. To analyse it would be a sadly thing!

It occurred to me recently that I could look up the lyrics to the songs on 'Heaven Up Here’, and it struck me as strange, here it being years into regularly utilizing the internet for looking up the lyrics to so many other bands. What was the unconscious reason for not looking up the lyrics to probably the most influential record of my life? Well simple, it is the beauty of the intangible in Maco's lyricism on this record, coupled with the magnificent percussive, melodic interplay amongst the entire band that seems to render the unknown word here or stanza there irrelevant. This record elicits the feelings of the bi-polar artist spiraling between rapture and terror made real and timeless by one of the most under appreciated bands of all time. Long story short this record is magic, and the less one knows about the mechanics of magic the more intense the trip.
