November Song 14: "Dear Life" by Brendan Benson


"Dear Life" by Brendan Benson

Warning: Ear worm ahead. Listen at your own peril. “Dear Life” by Brendan Benson has been stuck in my head all morning. The pop master part-time raconteur recently released his first album since 2013. Here’s the burrowing title track:


“Dear Life” Lyrics

Dear life, for Dear life
A Spinning head in a stranger's bed has never been her style
But she doesn't care she just needs somewhere to lay down for a while
Cause she can't go home and she can't be alone
There's no place in this world
But she can tune it out by thinking about
That happy little girl

Now she's hanging on
For dear life, dear life
Got her hanging on
For dear life, dear life
Yeah, yeah
For dear life, dear life
Got her hanging on

For dear life
For dear life

He got back from a tour in Iraq and he was lucky to be alive
But he wasn't the same and the nightmares came and he lost his nine to five
His friends all said he wasn't right in the head and he just couldn't cope anymore
Left his wife and his kid, now he's off the grid fighting a different war
Barely hanging on for dear life dear life
Has got him hanging on
For dear life, dear life
Has got him hanging on
For dear life, dear life, dear life
For dear life, dear life
Has got him hanging on

Somedays it comes over me and I can barely breathe
All this beauty pressing down on me
I don't ever want to leave
It's got me hanging on
To dear life, dear life
Got me hanging on
To dear life, dear life
To dear life, dear life
Has got me hanging on
To dear life, dear life, dear life
To dear life, dear life
Got me hanging on
To dear life, dear life, dear life
To dear life, dear life, dear life
