Mutineers by David Gray

David has a new song; Mutineers.  I like its complexity as well as its gentleness. It's a song that lingers.



You know the way it is
These thoughts are mutineers
Trying to shake the monkey off my back
So beat the island drum
And steady as she come
And all the stores are closing for the lack
To drink the damn place dry
Only plan of attack

And Babe
Sure feels good
This moving close
Sure feels good babe

And Hey
What could they know
Bout what we have
Yeah what we have
What could they know Babe?

The early warning signs
All lit up in my mind
It’s true you know
Some things weren’t meant to be
Until your secret’s out
It’s your worst enemy

And Babe
Sure feels good
This moving close
Sure feels good babe

And Hey
What could they know
Bout what we have
Yeah what we have
What could they know Babe?

Time is ours to burn
Is ours to burn
We got that glide
That freewheel glide
It’s ours to burn babe

Oh Babe
Sure feels good
This moving close
Sure feels good babe
