Music Challenge #20: “Way Down We Go” by Kaleo #amwriting #musicchallenge #MLMM

Tonight I’m going through my music trying to think of a great song that will inspire you. For some reason this song “Way Down We Go” by Kaleo A/B resonates with me and I’m crossing my fingers it resonates with you out there too.

I wouldn’t say it’s happy or cheery song; nevertheless, the lead singer of Kaleo has the kind of voice you can feel in your gut. I love how it sounds and found it interesting that they are an Icelandic band. I honestly don’t hear a great deal about bands from this region of the world so I think that’s neat too.

“Kaleo is an Icelandic blues/rock band that began in Mosfellsbær in 2012. It consists of lead vocalist and guitarist JJ Julius Son (Jökull Júlíusson), drummer David Antonsson, bassist Daniel Kristjansson, and lead guitarist Rubin Pollock.

Way Down We Go” by Kaleo

*****

Oh, father tell me, do we get what we deserve?

Oh, we get what we deserve

*****

And way down we go

Oh, way down we go

Say, way down we go

Way down we go

*****

Whoa, you let your feet run wild

Time has come as we all go down

Yeah but for the fall—oh, my—

Do you dare to look him right in the eyes?

*****

‘Cause they will run you down, down ’til the dark

Yes, and they will run you down, down ’til you fall

And they will run you down, down to your core

Yeah, ’til you can’t crawl no more

*****

And way down we go

Way down we go

Say, way down we go

*****

‘Cause they will run you down, down ’til you’re caught

Way down we go

*****

Whoa, baby, yeah

Whoa, baby

Baby

Way down we go

Yeah

*****

And way down we go

Way down we go

Say, way down we go

Way down we go

*****

    I tried to post a link to my story here in the comments section but it never showed up. If you can see it, look in your spam folder. Maybe the security for this blog is set high. Thanks.
