#32 The Kooks – Be Who You Are


“What’s keeping you from doing what you always wanna do”

Se podría proponer la teoría de que The Kooks no alcanzaron su potencial y han tenido mejores épocas. Este 2017 la banda lanzó su primer compilación de éxitos: The Best of… So Far, con un par de canciones nuevas incluidas, siendo una de ellas la pegajosa Be Who You Are. El video tiene cerca de 2 millones de vistas en YouTube, sus conciertos son Sold Out en casi cualquier lugar del mundo que se paran y esta compilación fue top 20 en las listas inglesas. Pues nada mal.

The Kooks – Be Who You Are

But you don’t know who you’re
The road’s gonna take and make you walk too far
You’re a liar, you’re a thief, you’re a star
But you don’t know who you’re

You’re just a kid with a sentimental heart
Afraid of what would’ve happened before you were the star
And you don’t need the baggage, and you don’t need the stuff
And you don’t need nobody to fill your empty cup

Ta ta, ta ta, ta ra ra ra
Ta ta, ta ra ra ra
Be who you’re
Ta ta, ta ta, ta ra ra ra
Baby you’re a star
Ta ta, ta ra ra ra

Never give up, Coltrane
Never be a slave to your own name
You’re a poet, you’re a fake, you’re a star
But you don’t know who you’re

We could shine a light, here inside the dark
And get a little closer to lonely spark
And there’s nothing left to win, and you can only lose
What’s keeping you from doing what you always wanna do

Ta ta, ta ta, ta ra ra ra
Be who you’re
Ta ta, ta ra ra ra
Be who you’re
Ta ta, ta ta, ta ra ra ra
Baby you’re a star
Ta ta, ta ra ra ra
Be who you’re

Lately I’ve been feeling
Like the stars were rolling out for me
Stars were rolling out
Lately I’ve been feeling
But the stars were rolling out for me
Stars were rolling out
But maybe they’re misleading
Is it just a light reflecting off the street?

You’re just a kid with a sentimental heart
And do it for yourself, and do it for the art
But you don’t need the baggage, you don’t need the stuff
You don’t need nobody to fill your empty cup
