Selezione musicale #8 – Anouk Nobody’s Wife

Anouk è una cantante olandese che, per quanto non molto conosciuta da noi, nel giro di una quindicina d’anni ha pubblicato 8 album da studio. Il primo grande successo corrisponde al suo secondo singolo, Nobody’s Wife, un bel rock aggressivo e arrabbiato che è la scelta di questa settimana. Il brano è del 1997, anno che vede l’uscita anche del suo album di debutto Together Alone.

I’m sorry for the times that I made you scream

for the times that I killed your dreams
for the times that I made your whole world rumble

for the times that I made you cry
for the times that I told you lies
for the times that I watched and let you stumble

It’s too bad, but that’s me
what goes around comes around, you’ll see
that I can carry the burden of pain
’cause it ain’t the first time that a man goes insane
and when I spread my wings to embrace him for life
I’m suckin’ out his love, ’cause I, I’ll never be nobody’s wife

I’m sorry for the times that I didn’t come home
left you lyin’ in that bed alone
was flyin’ high in the sky when you needed my shoulder

you’re like a stone hangin’ round my neck, see
cut it loose before it breaks my back, see
I’ve gotta say what I feel before I grow older

I’m sorry but I ain’t gonna change my ways
you know I’ve tried but I’m still the same
I’ve got to do it my own way

It’s too bad, but hey, that’s me
what goes around comes around, you’ll see
that I can carry the burden of pain
’cause it ain’t the first time that a man goes insane
and when I spread my wings to embrace him for life
I’m suckin’ out his love, I, I’ll never be nobody’s wife

It’s too bad, but hey, that’s me
what goes around comes around, you’ll see
that I can carry the burden of pain
’cause it ain’t the first time that a man goes insane
and when I spread my wings to embrace him for life
I’m suckin’ out his love, I, I’ll never be nobody’s wife
