Day 104: “Unfinished Business” – White Lies

!!!ITALIANO!!!

Today I want to share with you a song really imporrtanto for me, taken from White Lies’ first album, To Lose My Life, who will perform soon in Italy on three unmissable dates.

This band’s music is characterized by dark and nihilist tones, with death as central theme of all album, associated with the particular Harry McVeigh’s voice, very low and anguished, and with an evocative video.

White Lies were immediately compared to Joy Division, or Editors, remebering first’s dark sounds and baritone voice of the sencond one. Last January they released their second album, Ritual, in which we can see a change of style, appreciable or not, with a change of style, that sees more electronic sounds than the first album.

As anticipated, White Lies will be in Italy next December, on 2th in Padua, 3th in Rome and 4th in Milan.

Unfinished Business – White Lies

Just give me a second darling
To clear my head
Just put down those scissors baby, on this single bed
The sand in the hourglass is running low
I came through thunder, the cold wind
The rain and the snow
To find you awake by your windowsill
A sight for sore eyes and a view to kill

I broke down in horror at you standing there
The glow from the moon
Shone through cracks in your hair.
I shouted with passion,
“I love you so much”
But feeling my skin, it was cold to the touch.
You whispered “where are you?”
I questioned your doubt
But soon realised, you were talking to God now

You’ve got blood on your hands
And I know it’s mine
I just need more time
So get off your low and let’s dance like we used to
But there’s a light in the distance
Waiting for me, I will wait for you
So get off your low and let’s kiss like we used to

I looked in the mirror
But something was wrong.
I saw you behind but my reflection was gone.
There was smoke in the fireplace
As white as the snow.
A voice beckoned gently
‘Now it’s time to go’
A requiem played as you begged for forgiveness
“Don’t touch me!” I screamed
“I’ve got unfinished business”

You’ve got blood on your hands
And I know it’s mine
I just need more time
So get off your low and let’s dance like we used to
But there’s a light in the distance
Waiting for me, I will wait for you
So get off your low, and let’s kiss like we used to
