Listening to Hometown Glory



This song is one of my ultimate favorites ever. First time I heard it while watching Skins and this song was in such a sad scene that it just sinked in my mind. Then I didn't hear it for a long time until my boyfriend found Adele and started to listen some of her music. One of the songs were Hometown glory, I had such a rush of the skins scene and fell in love with the song all over. Since that I've had this song on my ipod and I have to listen it every once in a while. It reminds me of the skins scene, but also of the fact that I moved to new country and city. It just makes me very emotional. The song is beautiful, sort of desperate and just amazing!


I think this song should be listened alone in an empty room, or outside in the rain, in the dark, so that it gives you everything it should. My favorite type to listen this song is from my ipod so loud that I don't hear anything else, on the ped in a room where there is nobody else.


I've been walking in the same way as I did
Missing out the cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel and strutting my feet
"Is there anything I can do for you dear? Is there anyone I could call?"
"No and thank you, please Madam. I ain't lost, just wandering"


Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I've met


Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world
Are the wonders of my world


I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque
I love to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades
I like it in the city when two worlds collide
You get the people and the government
Everybody taking different sides

Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit
Shows that we are united
Shows that we ain't gonna take it
Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit
Shows that we are united

Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I've met

Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world
Are the wonders of my world


I picked these pictures to give the atmoshpere around this song that I feel. Beautiful and a bit desperate pictures, which have love and depression in them. Pictures are from le love blog.
