Recovery

‘It’s a long, long road to recovery from here. A long way back to the light. It’s long, long road to recovery from here. A long way to getting it right.- Recovery, Frank Turner

It’s true for so many of us in so many ways. We’re all recovering from something. I think the lyrics that Frank Turner sings here really hit the nail on the head.

Darling, Sweet Lover, won’t you help me to recover? Darling, Sweet Lover, someday this will all be over. – Recovery, Frank Turner

Here’s the video:

 

I find the video unsettling though. It seems incongruent with the angst of the song. Almost as if the director either didn’t get the song or tried to smooth over a different intention to the song. ‘Yeah, see, this is a song everyone can relate to- and it’s bouncy. Let’s show people bouncing around!’

No. I wanted angst, thank you. Heart twisting, drag your heart slowly on the concrete style angst. The song starts with a guy who is taking downers after a bender. Yeesh. Not a lot of bouncy dancing going on there.
