LET'S KARAOKE 15 : SWING OUT SISTER - TWILIGHT WORLD

Swing Out Sister? Quite an unusual name for a group. Well, quite a very unusual name for anything actually (they got it from a 1945 movie of the same name). Their type of music is not something that can be categorised as standard pop but they did manage to infiltrate the pop market with a few of their more pop-friendly songs. I guess not many people can appreciate their brand of music and maybe, that is part of the reason why they have not achieved the success that they so much deserve. Like other singers and groups of similar genre such as Sade, Basia and Simply Red, they too have kept their own loyal followers from all around the world.

The single's cover

Time out
World in a hurry
There's more love than money changing hands
Lights out
Thinking out loud

Turn your back on the world outside
Night thoughts
No one can share
As darkness breaks through another day
Secrets

Talking out loud
Silence waits just a dream away

Forget lonely crowds, unfriendly faces
They'll soon became familiar places
Before too long, before too long

Don't be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
You're living in a twilight world
Don't be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
Don't give in to the twilight world

Time out
World in a hurry
There's more love than money changing hands
Lights out

Thinking out loud
Turn your back on the world outside
Forget lonely crowds, unfriendly faces
They'll soon became familiar places
Before too long, before too long
Don't be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
You're living in a twilight world

Don't be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
Don't give in to the twilight world

Don't be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
You're living in a twilight world
Don't be fooled by love songs and lonely hearts
Don't give in to the twilight world
