Neither The Beginning Nor The End

lyrics

I’m a Grandfather Clock
I slow down everyday
Before the evening settles in
Then I wake up again
And when my time runs out
I’ll be stuck in a rut
Your power can’t revive me-
I will just stop

AND I WILL TICK
AND I WILL TOCK
AND I WILL STRIKE
WHEN I’M AT THE TOP
I’LL WAIT TILL YOU’RE SLEEPING THEN I’LL RING
I’LL SPIN ROUND AND ROUND BUT NOT MEAN A THING

I’m a solemn prayer
I will make you cry
And bend your knees and close your hands
Look up to the sky
I will make you think
There’ll be guilt in your smile
But they never refuse your hand
When you come to die

AND I WILL CHANT
AND YOU WILL SIGH
AND YES I’LL GRANT
AND YOU’LL KNOW WHY
YOU WON’T HEAR ME SPEAKING JUST FEEL MY BREATH
AND I’LL KNOW THAT YOU PAID YOUR RESPECTS

Don’t let me down now
Don’t let me down
Don’t leave me here
Standing out here like a clown

I will be myself
Won’t try to be you
But please don’t blame me
If it turns out to be true

Aah – Aah - Aaaah

about

Gabby Young and Other Animals London, UK

Almost uncategorisable, Gabby’s unique perspective on the world around her is inspired as much by her singularly surreal imagination. Gabby Young and Other Animals offer a slew of stunningly beautiful, often haunting songs that are a genre bending explosion of gypsy folk, pop, rock, jazz, cabaret – and a whole lot more.
