Scott Walker - Someone Who Cared Lyrics

I saw you cry - were you frightened of darkness?
I heard you sigh - were you bored?

You never gave life a chance
You gotta give life a chance

Tomorrow came and you saved it for no-one
Yesterday's gone - you just threw it away

You never gave life a chance
You gotta give life a chance

They're only tears that you've parted with
They're only fears that you had

You may not know, but there was someone who cared
Not that you noticed, anyhow

  12. Anthony Mead

    Everything he is and was, contained within this beautiful performance. The melancholy moves.

  13. Anthony Mead

    Probably the last great thing he did. After this period it all seemed to change. This is so beautiful.

  15. The Idiot Society

    Beautiful Scott

  16. Anthony Mead

    I remember this being released as a single - it was berated in the New Musical Express as being melancholic and stilted. They, as his singing suggests - should have given it a chance. Beautiful.

  17. funkmasterjee

    It feels unfinished at the end

    Christine Cronje

    to funkmasterjee;’i That is precisely the point. Brilliance at its best,

    Christine Cronje

    funkmasterjee That’s the idea. It is supposed to feel unfinished , different, perfect.

  18. RoofLight00
