ABOUT THIS TOOV

Another initiative for TOOVS from an idea from Gijz! Is a specific song for you tightly related to a location and event?

Tag it with ‘thissongthisplace’

Did you ever hear somebody sing out loud with his headphone on? My friend Troy sang Taillights Fade many, many times this way while we were in Africa. I can still hear it in the corridor of the hotel in Dar es salaam. I love the original song but his version was unique. Unfortunately I did not record it but here you can listen to the original.

Buffalo Tom - Taillights Fade

Sister can you hear me now
The ringing in your ears
I'm down on the ground
My luck's been dry for years

I'm lost in the dark
And I feel like a dinosaur
Broken face and broken hands
I'm a broken man

I've hit the wall
I'm about to fall
But I'm closing in on it
I feel so weak
On a losing streak
Watch my taillights fade to black

I read a thing about this girl
She was a hermit in her world
Her story was much like mine
She could be my valentine

And although we've never met
I won't forget her yet
She cut herself off from her past
Now she's alone at last

I feel so sick
Lost love's last licks
But I'm closing down on it
I feel so weak
On a losing streak
Watch my taillights fade to black

Lost my life in cheap wine
Now it's quiet time
Cappy Dick nor Jesus Christ
Could not help my fate

But I'm underneath a gun
I'm singing about my past
Had myself a wonderful thing
But I could not make it last

I've hit the wall
I'm about to fall
But I'm closing in on it
I feel so small
Underneath it all
Watch my taillights fade to black
..Watch my taillights fade
..Watch my taillights fade
..Watch my taillights fade
