Sunday Samples 302

November 11, 2012

And now for an on-time entry. Not so much from the soundtrack of Holy Motors itself, but from its trailer: KONGOS’ “Come With Me Now”. If nothing else, it reminds us that we need more accordions and steel guitars in rock.

(Come with me now)
(Come with me now)

Come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I’ve wasted time, I’ve wasted breath
I think I’ve thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it’s something I’ve read
I stood at this door before, I’m told
But a part of me knows that I’m growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that’s real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn’t even take a bite

Far away I heard him say (come with me now)
“Don’t delay” I heard him say (come with me now)
Far away I heard him say (come with me now)
“Don’t delay” I heard him say (come with me now)

Come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I’ve wasted time, I’ve wasted breath
I think I’ve thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Come with me now

Come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Come with me now
