Music Monday

It’s Monday, the start of another working week and to distract us from the humdrum of work I’m bringing you another song I love. This was started by the Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek make sure you check him out.

I pretty much love anything that The Pretty Reckless do and this song is no exception. The film clip is insanely stunning.

Year one was lots of fun
But nothin’ lasts forever in my dreams
Two, I followed you
Because you knew the way or so it seemed
At three, I still believed
That we would be becoming destiny
At four, I wanted more
But you were movin’ on to better things

At twenty-five, and still alive
Much longer than expected for a man
At twenty-five, a hope has died
And the glass of my intentions turns to sand
And shatters in my hand

Oh, oh, oh

Five to six, a lie, a kiss
The secrets that were stirred we’d never say
Skipped to eight, we called it fate
To live to let us die another day
At nine, I saw the signs
Reflected in the barrel of a gun
Ten, we’re here again
Those who loved me burned up in the sun

At twenty-five, and still alive
Much longer than expected for a man
At twenty-five, a hope has died
And the glass of my intentions turns to sand
And shatters in my hand
Shatters in my hand

From eleven to twelve, I held the future in my grasp
And all through my teens
I screamed that may not live much past
Twenty-one, two, three, four
Twenty-one, two, three, four
Twenty-one, two, three, four
One, two, three, four

At twenty-five, and still alive
Much longer than expected for a man
At twenty-five, a hope has died
And the glass of my intentions
The glass of my intentions
The glass of my intentions turns to sand
It shatters in my hand

Shatters in my hand
In my hand
