Song Lyric Sunday: Crying/Sadness – ‘Still I’m Sad’

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt from Jim at newepicauthor is the rather downbeat (nothing wrong with that) ‘Crying/Sadness’. This is the first song that came into my head.

It’s by The Yardbirds, one of the seminal sixties UK rock bands who, at various times, could boast Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and, in this instance, Jeff Beck as lead guitarists. If you’re not familiar with this track you may be surprised. Not bad for a ‘B’ side, though.

(And if you don’t know what a ‘B’ side is, ask your grandad)

See the stars come falling down from the sky
Gently passing, they kiss your tears when you cry
See the wind of summer blow your hair upon your head
See the rain, the falling rain, it’s rain

Still I’m sad

Oh my flowers, my tears just falling two days
We are driving the night to find they are lost
Flower, flower the wind is blowing, time into my heart
When the wind blows hard, we are apart

Still I’m sad
Still I’m sad

Written by Jim McCarty and Paul Samwell-Smith

  1. Wow, I was not expecting that particular sound. I’m actually surprised there weren’t any modern covers of it, especially during the whole “Goth” phase in the 90’s, because Jim’s right, it sounds medieval. Reminds me of something Rammstein might cover.
