Music Monday (1)

This meme was created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do to participate is pick a song that you really like and share it on Monday.

I find that over the last few years music has not been as much a part of my daily life as it used to be.  This is something I plan to rectify.  As a teenager, however, I’d spend hours holed away in my room listening to whatever current or vintage music seemed to most match my woes or joys at the time.  One band that featured heavily on my playlist at that time was the Cranberries.

My best friend introduced me to them when Zombie came out but it was Linger that I often played in the proceeding years.  That song will always epitomise the Alternative genre, for me, perhaps simply because it was the first that I absolutely loved.

So, like many participating in this meme today, in memory of Dolores O’Riordan, I chose Linger by the Cranberries.

Your voice will live in our memories forever.

 

Lyrics

If you, if you could return
Don’t let it burn, don’t let it fade
I’m sure I’m not being rude
But it’s just your attitude
Is tearing me apart
Is ruining everything

And I swore, I swore I would be true
And, honey, so did you
So why were you holding her hand?
Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time?
Was it just a game to you?

But I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger, uh-huh-huh
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
But I was wrong
I was wrong

If you, if you could get by
Trying not to lie
Things wouldn’t be so confused
And I wouldn’t feel so used
But you always really knew
I just wanna be with you

And I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger, uh-huh-huh
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger?
And I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger, uh-huh-huh
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger?

You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger, uh-huh-huh
Do you have to let it linger?
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger?

  1. Such an awesome song. These are both two of my favorites. It’s still hard to believe we lost yet another great artist so young. 💕 To end on a positive note, I’m so very excited you’re doing Music Monday! This is awesome! Have a great week. 😉

    1. And thank you for the blogging advice; I feel good that I have everything written down and that I can revisit it near the end of the month with fresh eyes. You made me LOL at what you were supposed to be doing. I hope you’re having a good Monday.
