Lyrical Tuesday: Twist In My Sobriety

This week I chose a song I absolutely love, even though its meaning sometimes escapes me: 'Twist in My Sobriety' by Tanita Tikaram

The idea/rules:
  • Think of a song that has inspired you
  • Choose two sentences
  • Explain what they mean to you
  • Post a link to the song
  • Post the Button below and leave a comment with your link!


  • 'All God's children need travelling shoes'I love travelling and the idea that life in itself is a journey and that we all should be prepared to travel appeals to me. I also think it is a brilliant opener to a song. It is slightly mystical and strange, yet after listening to it for the second time, the opening makes a lot more sense.
  • 'All good people read good books'Although perhaps slightly judgemental, I love this sentence. Everyone likes different kinds of books and thinks different books are good, but I do think people tend to like others who like or read the same kind of books.
The lyrics to this song are simply brilliant and ever so slightly nostalgic and whimsical. Tanita Tikaram has a beautiful voice and I simply love this song. Definitely check it out:

 So, what song did you pick? Leave a link in the comments! :)
