Music Monday – They Don’t Need To Understand by Andy Black

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! For this week’s song, I have chosen They Don’t Need To Understand by Andy Black.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


They Don’t Need To Understand by Andy Black

They Don’t Need To Understand is Andy Black’s 2014 debut single as a solo artist, but doesn’t feature on either of his 2 solo albums that he has released since then.

As a lot of you know, because I keep going on about it, he is also publishing his memoir on 8th December, with the same title. You can find out about it here, and purchase it here (affiliate link).


Lyrics

Growing strong, the voice of my father said,
“Don’t give up, don’t be forgotten.”
This hell on earth, I just want to run away
They told me dreams don’t grow from here
Stay alone, count your fears
Somewhere down the line I might figure it out

Singin’ all my songs to bedroom mirrors
Deep inside my heart I’m still here

We’re always runnin’ away
And we don’t even stop to think about it
The world’s in our hands, yeah
They don’t need to understand
We do it our own way,
No matter what they try to say about it
We’ve got our own plans, yeah
They don’t need to understand

They don’t need to understand

What made me tough almost killed me
At least that’s how I remember the story
Over the years I’ve forgotten how it was
But I survived and I won’t walk down
The same old road that they all followed
It only leads to a life not meant for me

Singin’ all my songs to bedroom mirrors
Deep inside my heart I’m here

We’re always runnin’ away
And we don’t even stop to think about it
The world’s in our hands, yeah
They don’t need to understand
We do it our own way,
No matter what they try to say about it
We’ve got our own plans, yeah
They don’t need to understand

Streets in my hometown seem strange now
They feel like a distant memory
I’m always fighting ’cause I know you’re trying
But you can never take this dream from me

We’re always runnin’ away
And we don’t even stop to think about it
The world’s in our hands, yeah
They don’t need to understand
We do it our own way,
No matter what they try to say about it
We’ve got our own plans, yeah
They don’t need to understand

They don’t need to understand
They don’t need to understand
