Track Focus Tuesday: Bulletproof

Today's Track Focus Tuesday is a bit unfocused, so we'll keep it brief. We'll look at Palace of Gold's Bulletproof from 2002. Here's A bit of commentary from Greg and Jim on CBC's Q with Tom Power... (time index 28:38)


And here's the official video for Bulletproof with Jim in full blown heartbreaking swooning for the crooner mode...


And a cool live version from the late great music show, Austin City Limits...

TELL ME ONE MORE TIME AGAIN

JUST LIKE I DIDN’T HEAR YOU

LIKE I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND, I DO

I PLAY THE SAME GAME TOO

I KNOW IT’S HARD TO STOP

EVEN WHEN YOU WANT TO


NOW THE MOON LIGHTS UP YOUR FACE

AND I CAN SEE YOU’RE CRYING

YOU NEVER LIKED ME TO SEE YOU CRY, IT’S TRUE

I’VE DONE SOME CRYING TOO

THE HARDEST PART ABOUT IT

IS TRYING TO HIDE IT FROM YOU


IT MUST BE GREAT TO BE SO STRONG

NEVER NEEDED ANYBODY’S HELP TO CARRY ON

BUT WE’RE SO SCARED OF THE SILENCE AND THE TRICKS THAT WE USE

WE’RE CAREFUL AND WE’RE CUNNING, BUT WE’RE EASILY BRUISED

I DON’T WANT TO LIE ABOUT IT I’M NOT BULLETPROOF


WELL I FINALLY FOUND THE WAY

TO HIDE FROM ALL YOUR GLANCES

TIL THE WAITING GAME WE PLAY IS THROUGH

I CAN, BUT WHAT’S THE USE

WHEN ALL I REALLY WANT TO DO IS HIDE OUT WITH YOU


IT WOULD BE GREAT TO BE SO STRONG

YOU NEVER NEEDED ANYBODY’S HELP TO GET ALONG

WE’RE SO SCARED OF THE SILENCE AND THE LANGUAGE THAT WE USE

YEAH WE’RE CAREFUL AND WE’RE CUNNING, BUT WE’RE EASILY BRUISED

I DON’T WANT TO KID ABOUT IT

I’M NOT BULLETPROOF


TELL ME ONE MORE TIME AGAIN

I GUESS I DIDN’T HEAR YOU

I DON’T KNOW ALL THE SECRETS THAT YOU KEEP INSIDE

I TRIED THE SAME THING TOO

BUT THEY ALL COME POURING OUT OF ME WHEN I’M TALKING TO YOU


IT MUST BE GREAT TO BE SO STRONG

YOU NEVER NEEDED ANYBODY ELSE’S HELP TO CARRY ON

BUT I’M NOT WAKING UP EACH MORNING WITH FORGIVENESS I CAN USE

NO I’M CARELESS, AND I’M CRUEL, BUT I’M STILL EASILY BRUISED


I’M SO TIRED OF LYING ABOUT IT

I’M NOT BULLETPROOF

NO, AND I’M NOT GOING TO LIE ABOUT IT

I’M NOT BULLETPROOF


That's All Folks

Short and sweet, like my grade 1 teacher Miss Benny...
