Never

About this Song:

Moira: I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to lovely Yvonne O’Hara (who writes and sings under the pseudonym Narva9 on ccMixter.com) for allowing me to record her song.

Siobhan: Funk, Pop – the only song on the album one can actually dance too. Including a funky guitar – a very busy drum player and a straight forward bassline. Some organ and pad included also. There were so many good dancefloor classics written in the 70s which are played on every party (still).

Lyrics:

NEVER
Never danced in the rain
Never howled at the moon
Never downed a shot of whiskey
Never slept until noon
Never smoked a pipe
Be it weed or for peace
Never gave much of a thought to the world
Beyond my feet

Chorus
So why am I here
What is it all about
Why does the world go ‘round
And is the sky still blue above
Now answer me this
Has it all been a lie
‘Cause how is it I still live
When I’ve never been alive

Life was always just a fact
No place for silly dreams
Those were just for other fools
At least that’s what it seemed
So I never thought to try
Never thought I had a choice
So I never gave my heart away
Never ever gave it voice

Chorus
So why am I here
What is it all about
Why does the world go ‘round
And is the sky still blue above
Now answer me this
Has it all been a lie
‘Cause how is it I still live
When I’ve never been alive

Never sat in the sun
Never named the stars above
Never stopped to smell the roses
I never made the time
Now my end has come
And all I’m left is regret
For I never told you how much I love you
So many things I never said

Chorus
So why am I here
What is it all about
Why does the world go ‘round
And is the sky still blue above
Now answer me this
Has it all been a lie
‘Cause how is it I still live
When I’ve never been alive
