ToffeeTunes: It's a Cruel and Beautiful World

You know, if you wanted to show someone what it's like being a fan of Everton, all you would have to do is point them to this past week.

We go from the high of playing Swansea City off their own pitch and rising to third in the Premier League, to the low of being thoroughly outplayed by a Championship side as we crash out of the League Cup for yet another year.

Evertonians really do live in a cruel and beautiful world.

LYRICS:

Go ahead and close the door
I'll stand outside in the rain
A little bird just told me so
It's time to start over again

So I'll man up and take this boat
Far away from these shores

And I'll reach behind an enemy line
And find my curable cure

(Chorus)
Cause it's a cruel and beautiful world
And I got my girl
And if it seems like we're falling behind
We're just slipping on talk from the mouths of our mind

I buried a treasure
Far off near the desert
I'm trying to find my way there
It's been too long since I've been myself
And my eyes can't see anymore

(But) there's a song inside this heart of mine
And I'd like to sing it to you
Cause there's an earthquake shaking inside my country
Now what am I gonna do?

(Chorus)
Cause it's a cruel and beautiful world
And I got my girl
And if it seems like we're falling behind
We're just slipping on talk from the mouths of our mind

Cause it's a cruel and beautiful world (cruel and beautiful world)
And I got my girl (and he's got his girl)
And if it seems like we're falling behind (seems like we're falling behind)
We're just slipping on talk from the mouths of our mind

This song is by the band Grouplove. They are really excellent (I also happen to be seeing them live in Dallas in a couple of weeks and am beyond excited), so check them out. Most of their stuff is more upbeat than this one, so maybe I'll use one of their happier songs when we win again. We will win again, won't we?

By the way, I'm a huge music buff and I'm always looking for new suggestions. Anyone care to share what they're listening to right now?
