Don’t Give Up – Whitest Boy Alive

Being depressed in this week, a song, 《Don’t Give Up》, from Whitest Boy Alive‘s debut album 《Dreams》,has been looping all over. The long-awaited vocal from Erlend Øye and the warm but slothful atmosphere made my eyes open. Lifting my head to look at the deep blue of autumn, I felt better.

《Don’t Give Up》listen:

Lyrics :

Give me a reason to stay constantly ignored
Give me an angle that I haven’t tried before
A guarantee for being honestly compared
You want to live when life is sickingly unfair

Don’t make a move you’ll look ridiculous again
You share no interest but it’s easy to pretend
Don’t start the action it will turn against you soon
No one is going to follow and you’ll stand there like a fool

You left the people when the people left you out
Back in the suburbs you’re craving for the crowd
Only minded now with defeats of yesterday
The mantra spinning in your head will keep it raised

Give me a reason to stay constantly ignored
I don’t think I can
Give me an angle that I haven’t tried before
Not from where I stand
A guarantee for being honestly compared
Could not be found
You want to live when life is sickingly unfair
Stick around

Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
