Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Smile

I’d like to laugh at what you said
But I just can’t find a smile
I wonder why you can’t
I struggle with myself
Hoping I might change a little
Hoping that I might be someone I wanna be
Looking out I want to know someone might care
Looking out I want a reason to be there
Cause I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve you
And I don’t know what I’ll do without you
Looking out I want to know some way might clear
Looking out I want a reason to repair
Cause I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve you
And I don’t know what I’ll do without you
I can’t see nothing good
And nothing is so bad
I never had a chance
To explain exactly what I meant

Beth Gibbons is not smiling today!  

Nylon Smile is by Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley or that’s Portishead the band not the English seaside town. This is the third track from the third album called well, Third release in 2008.

If I remember right reading an interview with both Barrow and Utley but not Gibbons because she doesn’t do them anymore, the two guys hoped it would be less than ten years before the next Postishead album but off course, that hasn’t happened has it? Even if they do somehow drop brand new shinny album in the next few months, it’s already over ten years because the Third album was released in April of 2008. Somewhere in the last ten years, I did read somewhere else Gibbons did sign a solo album deal too but nothing or any album has yet to appear, I don’t even know if that’s true at all? Whatever the case all three Portishead albums plus the Out Of Season album from 2002 by Gibbons & Rustin Man, that’s the former Talk Talk bassist Paul Webb are all definitely in my music collection, how about you? Check them out if not, I guess?

SLS theme this weekend is from blogger Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me, thanks man!

Cheers 🙂
