#MusicMonday – But the answers you seek will never be found at home…

Hi and welcome to Music Monday! First of all, credit where credit is due: Music Monday is hosted by Drew a.k.a. @SarcasticEnigma over on The Tattooed Book Geek. Each week he presents a song that he really loves and this week I’m joining in although I wasn’t planning to… However, I was lucky to receive an e-copy of the final (for now) Soho Noir instalment (you’ll never guess the title 😉) and I just had to shout my love for it on Music Monday! So this one’s for Toby Hunter and Red Dog Press! And I added a little something for me too, as I like the Paradise Lost cover a lot more than the Bronski Beat original. What can I say, I’m a sucker for the very angry smalltown boy with the raging guitars 😂

While you’re listening, do check out the Red Dog Press website or find them and Toby on Twitter!

To your soul
To your soul
Cry
Cry
Cry
You leave in the morning with everything you own in a little black case
Alone on a platform, the wind and the rain on a sad and lonely face
Mother will never understand why you had to leave
But the answers you seek will never be found at home
The love that you need will never be found at home
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Pushed around and kicked around, always a lonely boy
You were the one that they’d talk about around town as they put you down
And as hard as they would try they’d hurt to make you cry

But you never cried to them, just to your soul
No, you never cried to them, just to your soul
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away (crying to your soul)
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away (crying to your soul)
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away (crying to your soul)
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
Cry, boy, cry, boy, cry
You leave in the morning with everything you own in a little black case
Alone on a platform, the wind and the rain on a sad and lonely face
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Thanks for reading and listening 😊🎶🎵 And tell me, do you like the cover, or do you think I’m a heathen for even suggesting it?
