The Stone Roses – Waterfall (1991)

 

Well just posted a new track from The Stone Roses, so makes sense to post an older track as this weeks time machine video of the week. I am sure you will all know who The Stone Roses are!!!! Must say that it is one of my favourite Stone Roses tracks!!!

Waterfall is the ninth single from The Stone Roses. It was the fourth single taken from their debut album The Stone Roses. It was released on 30 December 1991 and reached number 27 in the UK.

The song was placed at number 5 in a 2013 poll, by readers of The Guardian, of their all-time favourite songs by the band.

Chimes sing Sunday morn
Today’s the day she’s sworn
To steal what she never could own
And race from this hole she calls home

Now you’re at the wheel
Tell me how, how does it feel?
So good to have equalised
To lift up the lids of your eyes

As the miles they disappear
See land begin to clear
Free from the filth and the scum
This American satellite’s won

She’ll carry on through it all
She’s a waterfall

She’ll carry on through it all
She’s a waterfall

See the steeple pine
The hills as old as time
Soon to be put to the test
To be whipped by the winds of the west

Stands on shifting sands
The scales held in her hands
The wind it just whips her and wails
And fills up her brigantine sails

She’ll carry on through it all
She’s a waterfall

She’ll carry on through it all
She’s a waterfall
