Tanita Tikaram - Preyed Upon

296 ratings | 87981 views
Tanita Tikaram - Preyed Upon When your life has all been token And your stance is akin to broken hearts You've grown weary - I'm not weary I can take your part It's eye-open time, sailor When they want you to pretend You were inside that playground You may be old - but not so old That I can't see See your old friends and it's fresh as dew See what's new and it's all the same to you Now I'm not choosy but I'm just half grown I took the old man - I gave the old man I took the old man back home Safe with us to serenade To hang around your black scarf and black ways You have "no idea" he said, "no idea of what I'll do" And talking less - it chases home It chases dreams - but I have really no reason, no goal and so If you "wanna" play real basic If you "wanna" help us make it Don't forget you're alone Unless it's all alone Don't forget you're alone Unless it's all alone You get preyed upon Ohh oh I need to complicate you To make you hate the things you might have done And come out into this morning It's the sun you want Not the foreign time

Tanita's debut album still brings tears of joy to my eyes. Takes me back to 88, when every day was the voyage of a lifetime.

The musical arrangement is just wonderful, & love the bass line. to see it live when they played in Norway was amazing.

Reminds me of the time I rented the lp Ancient Heart from the library and played it on my brother's stereo set. A beautiful ending of a magnificent recording.

I always keep coming back to this song, it makes me feel sad, thoughtful and nostalgic. I wish I could turn back time to the way things used to be, when I was happy.

I wish more people would stop making sense. It means nothing and everything. Almost perfect album this was. Reminds me of what has happened to the world....and it ain't good.

+David Mills she has stated that her work is stream of consciousness, when she asked her mother about her work, her mother said to her "stop making sense". Most of her work is doing that intentionally.

+Bartholomew Henry its good to ask whats it about, i think its about an old man accused of doing somthing he did not do

The emotion is unbearably beautiful. The music grave and so special to Tanita. Please come to Paris - New Morning, Duc des Lombards... Please.

If you find them, perhaps you can upload them to YouTube?

It would be a toss-up between this and Little Sister Leaving Town for me - that always breaks my heart. I have a recording somewhere from Irish TV where she sings both with an orchestra, fabulous versions, but I've never seen them on YouTube.

To me this is the best song on Ancient Heart. And her new release "Can't Go Back" is amazing.
David Mills (1 year ago)
i think valentine heart is the best and this is a close 2nd, back in 1988 i used to listen to this cd over and over

My all time favourite TT song. It took a few listenings, but then it just grew on me.
novogrande (6 years ago)
I think it's one ot the best songs ever, hidden on a good album. I want the people to play it on the day I die.
