Song of the Week: Misread by Kings of Convenience

This weeks’ Song of the Week is “Misread” by Kings Of Convenience. This song has held me down for the past two weeks. It makes me feel better after a very challenging day. The lyrics are genuine and really great for the soul…

“If you wanna be my friend
You want us to get along
Please do not expect me to
Wrap it up and keep it there
The observation I am doing could
Easily be understood
As cynical demeanour

But one of us misread…
And what do you know
It happened again

A friend is not a means
You utilize to get somewhere

Somehow I didn’t notice
friendship is an end
What do you know
It happened again

How come no-one told me
All throughout history
The loneliest people
Were the ones who always spoke the truth
The ones who made a difference
By withstanding the indifference

I guess it’s up to me now
Should I take that risk or just smile?

What do you know
It happened again
What do you know “
