“If I told you a secret
You won’t tell a soul
Will you hold it and keep it alive?
Cause it’s burning a hole
And I can’t get to sleep
And I can’t live alone in this lie”
Here we have underrated British pop-rock, at least in the stateside music circles I run between.
Hypnotic in waltz time and infused with bells, this song is standard Travis – never too happy, never too sad, embracing instrumentation.
I love the mystery in this song, there’s something about it that shrouds the directness of the underlying message which is, really, about facing the fears of love.
File that one away under “things that never change.”
“If the world isn’t turning
Your heart won’t return anyone, anything, anyhow…
So take me, don’t leave me
Take me, don’t leave me
Baby, love will come through
It’s just waiting for you”
~Love Will Come Through
