Musical Discovery of the Day : Michael Kiwanuka’s SOLID GROUND

 

Solid Ground Lyrics

[Verse 1]
How does it feel when it’s quiet and calm?
And will I be denied?
How will it feel when it’s time to move on?
Mother says kneel and pray
When it gets hard, I will roll those sleeves
Life can be so unkind
I will be found on the edge of the world
Where there’ll be no one around[Chorus]
Oh, solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground

[Verse 2]
How does it feel to be on your own?
No one to understand
I know I’m here and I don’t belong
I’m on my knees today
When it gets dark, I will know no fear
Life can be so unkind
Hanging around on the edge of the world
Finally no one around

[Bridge]
Oh, would you help me?
I don’t understand
Is it over?
Am I losing solid ground?

[Chorus]
Solid ground (Solid ground)
Solid ground (Solid ground)
Solid ground (Solid ground)
Solid ground (Solid ground)
Solid ground (Solid ground)
Solid ground (Solid ground)
Solid ground (Solid ground)
Solid ground (Solid ground)

 

The whole album, 2016’s LOVE & HATE comes strongly recommended. Not just to stream, this is one worth actually owning the physical CD. Recommended. A mellow, lush, plaintive folksy wail to be played on a drizzling day, against the dying of the light.
