11. My Alibi

The Great Depression
by Blindside



 

My feet felt light for the first time in months
It was like You came walking across the room
Straight at me and then straight through me
And then stopped and stood still for awhile
I knew then that Id been lonely for quite some time
And as we started to dance, You gently took off my tear-soaked coat
And let it fall heavy to the floor and then
We danced some more

When all is said and done
When all is gone and still just begun
I will be asked what I did with my time and why
Can You be my alibi
Cause I know I spent it dancing with You

I have been here before
These emotions are relived
Its like a joy dj vu
You have been walking along
With me for quite some time
But me with my deaf ear and my blind sides
Both of these I turned against You
We all know that Youre there
We all know

When all is said and done
When all is gone and still just begun
I will be asked what I did with my time and why
Can You be my alibi
Cause I know I spent it dancing with You

Said and done
Now all is gone and still just begun
What have I done with my time and why
You are my alibi
Cause I know
I know Im dancing with You

Written by Blindside / 2005 DRT Entertainment, Inc.

Behind the Song:
'Hope is not what you have done - but in the relationships you have formed - it is being known. I went through a period of depression after coming back from South Africa all throughout the writing of this record. When we were writing this song, I was in the studio and Tomas was recording the bass part and the producer Lasse and I were dancing around the studio for fun. Then it stopped being funny and became a really powerful moment. I don't think Lasse or anyone else in that room noticed anything different but I felt the weight of depression lifting from me. Losing myself in that dance was a very special moment.' - Christian Lindskog (Blindside)
