Lyric Love

22 Jun

This weeks Lyric Love belongs to Little Dragon. Originating from Gothenburg Sweden. Little Dragon is one of my favorite groups. A mix of r&b, electronic, synthpop and soul Little Dragon gives me the same nostalgic feeling I get when listening to greats like Aretha Franklin and The Clash. The lead singer Yukimi Nagano has a voice that would make you question her tiny frame, sometimes sounding as if she were a baptist singer in a church choir from the 1950’s. I didn’t know the Swedish had so much soul. Read along and enjoy!

“Constant Surprises”

By: Little Dragon

I was walking home
Looking at the trees
Got the feeling that they
Were looking back at me

Thoughts that occurred to me
Where not of the usual kind
And I don’t take it granted no
I don’t call them mine
I don’t call them mine
‘Cause in my life things
Are built on

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

The higher forces want to connect
Last night in my dream I was talking to you
You know who you are
Were you dreaming too
‘Cause in my life
Things are built on
Are built on

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

Then on my way home I met this guy
He was not so shy
You know not that kind
We spoke then suddenly I could read his mind
You think it’s mad
But I don’t fool myself
You think its odd
‘Cause in my life
In my life things are built on
They built on
They built on

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

Constant surprises
Coming my way
Some call it coincidence
But I like to call it fate

The song is just to good not to include a video. Enjoy!
