Music Monday: Devil Don’t Cry by King 810

So, I couldn’t resist joining in with this meme that Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek started. Simply you pick a song on a Monday and share it! Whoop!

As I’ve just spent the past three days at Bloodstock Festival. What! you missed me nattering about it on social media? I decided to share a song by the band who surprised me the most.

I bought King 810’s debut album when it was first released, it took about ten plays to grow on me, I wasn’t a huge fan, but listen to it semi-regularly now that I’ve learned to love the music. For their set I was right at the front, bar a few tall dudes, there are always tall dudes when you are short!

This band blew me away, from the second they walked on the stage to the second their set was done. Totally outstanding and I’m looking at their music with fresh ears.

This is Devil Don’t Cry which is a stunning song, and one of their less offensive songs!

So I’m sitting here with ghosts again some are women mostly men

Telling me of times they have had

And I’m fantasizing about a hole in the ground

How and where I’m gonna lay myself down and still die at 27 like we planned

Then she saw the look in my eyes

And began to sing a song I won’t describe

“In another life we’ll be king and queen you and I”

Then she told me devil don’t cry

Devil don’t cry

I know things get tough and sometimes you wanna die

But “god needs an enemy and I need a guy”

And she told me devil don’t cry

At least not tonight

So I’m sitting alone again

All my friends are with their friends

Thinking of times I have had

And I’m fantasizing about a hole in the ground

How and where I’m gonna lay myself down and I find a knife in my hand

Then she saw the look in my eyes

And began to sing a song I won’t describe

“In another life we’ll be king and queen you and I”

Then she told me devil don’t cry

The Devil don’t cry don’t cry

I know things get tough and sometimes you wanna die

But “god needs an enemy and I need a guy”

And she told me devil don’t cry

The devil don’t cry don’t cry

I know things get tough and sometimes you wanna die

But “god needs an enemy and I need a guy” and she told me the devil don’t cry at least not tonight

Tonite let’s not pretend a thing

This earth and it’s creatures are the ugliest we’ve seen

And the human machine cannot contain this love So we die let’s just meet at our place up above.
