Wolf Alice -Space and Time

Music Monday is a weekly meme by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek and it’s such a fab idea that I am going to give it a go too.

I realise that my first ever Music Monday has ended up being posted on a Thursday, but hey, that’s what you get with an ADHD blog. I started the draft of it on Monday so that counts, right?

Looking back at 2020, there was probably one album I listened to most, and that’s Visions of a Life by Wolf Alice. It’s tricky to pick one track to highlight as they’re all good but this is a firm favourite. It wakes me up every time I hear it and has been great at keeping me going when having restless ADHD days, a particular problem whilst working from home in lockdown.

The words really resonate with me too, as does anything that seems to be about anxiety, loss of control and not being fully in the time and space you’re supposed to be in.

I hadn’t seen the video until I went looking for it for this blog and I have to say I love it. Brides running away is a favourite theme of mine!

Space & Time

Wolf Alice

Hope my body gets better
Do I mean my body or my mind?
I hate the word “forever”
I hate the word “change”
I just need time
Give me time
Space and time

Take me out to the future
Just so I can look back into the past

I hope my body gets better
Do I mean my body or my mind?
I hate the word “forever”
I hate the word “change”
I just need time
Give me time
Space and time

Oh God I was strange now weren’t I?
I hope that when I look back I will laugh

I feel I’m losing control of my body
Control of my moods and my decisions and my money
I don’t want to come undone
I am set to self-destruct

I hope my body gets better
Do I need my body or my mind?
I hate the word “forever”
I hate the word “change”
I just need time
Give me time
