Vox Hunt: Cover Me

Audio:  Let's hear your favorite cover song.
Submitted by Suzy

The first time I heard this song, I did not realize it was a cover.  It was only after I had done a search for the lyrics that I found that it was a Coldplay song.  I much prefer Aimee Mann's version.  This is the kind of song that her voice is perfectly suited to – wistful, longing, regretful.  The arrangement behind her is also done very well, with the introduction of the backing instruments being done slowly, in staggered layers.

The song comes from the album "Lost in Space".

Lyrics:

Come up to meet you, Tell you I’m sorry, You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you, Tell you I need you, Tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets, And ask me your questions, Let’s go back to the start
Runnin’ in circles, Chasing our tails, Heads on the science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Take me back to the start

I was just guessin’, At numbers and figures, Pullin’ the puzzles apart
Questions of science, Science and progress, Do not speak as loud as my heart
Tell me you love me, Come back to haunt me, Oh when I rush to the start
Runnin’ in circles, Chasin’ our tails, Comin’ back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Aww It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I’m goin’ back to the start
