Song Lyric Sunday 8/14/16 – White Flag

So this week’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday is something new to you. I actually had to think about this one for sometime but I figured it out.

A new group I’ve taken a liking to is a band called Joseph. No, it’s not a single person, it’s actually three sisters (none of whom are named Joseph, first or last) from Portland, Oregon. Their name is supposedly a nod to the town of Joseph, Oregon and their grandfather Joseph.

Anyway, the song I’m choosing is the very first song I heard from them called “White Flag.” A friend shared this song with me and I immediately fell in love with it and the group. It’s got a very Celtic-type sound which I really love (not surprising as I played guitar in and sang backup in a Celtic pub band years ago). I listen to this song a lot when I’m feeling like throwing in the towel as it pumps me up.

Without further ado:

Your yelling’s getting loud
Keep it down now, keep it down now
There’s talk going ’round this town
Keep it down now, keep it down now

Noises closing in from all sides
Warning all the ways to die
They say “you’d better give up
You’d better give up”

I’ll be an army, no you’re
Not gonna stop me gettin’
Through
I’ll sing a marching song and
Stomp through the halls louder than
You

I could surrender but I’d
Just be pretending, no I’d
Rather be dead than live a lie
Burn the white flag
Burn the white flag

Whisper, move the air
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
Sometimes it’s all I’ve got to spare
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

Noises closing in from all sides
Warning all the ways to die
They say “you’d better give up
You’d better give up”
I say
“I’ll never give up, I’ll never give up”

I’ll be an army, no you’re
Not gonna stop me gettin’
Through
I’ll sing a marching song and
Stomp through the halls louder than
You

I could surrender but I’d
Just be pretending, no I’d
Rather be dead than live a lie
Burn the white flag
Burn the white flag
Burn the white flag
Burn the white flag

I’ll be an army, no you’re
Not gonna stop me gettin’
Through
I’ll sing a marching song and
Stomp through the halls louder than
You

I could surrender but I’d
Just be pretending, no I’d
Rather be dead than live a lie
Burn the white flag
Burn the white flag
Burn the white flag
Burn the white flag
