Drop Nineteens - Winona


This is my second entry on the Drop Nineteens, my first covering their musical contribution for the Adventures of Pete & Pete. Now I bring their most successful song, one that was actually a relative hit in the college radio spectrum. The "Winona" in this song is actually Winona Ryter, who was major indie crush material in the early 90's especially after Heathers (one of my personal favorites ever) and Edward Scissorhands. Winona's also indulged in a few musical flings of their own, including dating Conor Oberst, Paul Westerberg, Ryan Adams, Jack White, Beck, Jamiroquai, Chris Issak, Dave Grohl, Pete Yorn, Adam Duritz, Dave Pirner (of Soul Asylum), Evan Dando (of the Lemonheads), Michael Nesmith (of the Monkeys- yes that Monkeys), Rhett Miller (of the Old-97's), Stephen Jenkins (of Third Eye Blind), Tre Cool (of Green Day), Page Hamilton (of Helmet), and even Everlast. Yes, Everlast. That's what it's like for Miss. Winona. This doesn't even include the actors (and actress!) she'd dated. For that check out her page on WhosDatedWho, a site that I enjoy much more than I'll admit.

This "Winona" however gets around much less. In fact few have heard of the Drop Nineteens at all. Pity, pity. Out of all the "shoegaze" I've posted so far, this song is one of my favorites. Unfortunately I have no lyrics for it.

I have been a great fan of D19's since they came out, and I have looked for the lyrics everywhere, the other night, after a decade of trying to get them, a friend and I tried to figure them out, this is a noble attempt, hopefully it works as a start to eventually have them right!

Cheers!

There's a gap in the 20th century, and it fills the world with dreams
when you got in the looks and the rest just words
and that's what it's like

so hold on tight 'til you can't even read
another record shop story that I was born to die
it'll come out real, and we're losin time

maybe it got swinged from a baby´s hand
too young to understand
all there is to know
to lose your soul

Alien backed down from planet ____
unhappy with their dying stars
in search for the one
then wrap it around the sun
they know who you are

could be the stars at the day there outisde your door
and all has changed, evermore, confused
that's why I have to know the truth
was it you
was it inside you

maybe it got swinged from a baby´s hand
too young to understand
all there is to know
if you're gonna lose your soul
yes I got my feet in the sky
and I wonder why
you'd be the one be pleased to go
I'm the only star in what's to know

I don't even know if anyone will see this, but I've listened to those lyrics and with Semidios's attempt, these are my corrections.
Cheers, peppermint.


There's a gap in the 20th century

and it fills the world with dreams


When you've got the looks then the rest just works


If that's what it's like





They'll hold on tight 'til you can't even breathe


Another record shop story that was born to die


It'll come on real, and we're losing time




You maybe dropped swinging from a baby's hand


Too young to understand


All there is to know


to lose your soul





Aliens cracked down from planet ____


Unhappy with your battle scars


They search for the one


Then wrap her around the sun


They know who you are





Could be as fast as the day there outisde your door


When it all has changed, evermore, confused


It's why I've got to know the truth


Was it you who sang in Xanadu





You maybe dropped swinging from a baby's hand


Too young to understand


All there is to know


If you're gonna lose your soul
I guess

I got my feet in the sky


and I wonder why


You'll be the one be unpleased to go


I'm the only star who wants to know

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
