'Why Worry'  Dire Straits

"But baby just when this world seems mean and cold
Our love comes shining red and gold".

Mark Freuder Knopfler, OBE (born 12 August 1949) is a British singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and film score composer. He is best known as the lead guitarist, lead singer and songwriter for the rock band Dire Straits, which he co-founded with his younger brother, David Knopfler, in 1977. bron: Wikipedia.

De tekst van deze song spreekt eigenlijk wel voor zich. Wat ik er mooi aan vind is de integere, ingetogen en warme stemming die Mark Knopfler erin heeft weten te leggen. Net als 'Brothers In Arms' een song over liefde, hoop en troost. Meer over deze song, ook van anderen, op SongMeanings.

Live uitvoering van Dire Straits tijdens 'Brothers in arms'-tour at the Wembley Arena in London, United Kingdom op 10 juli 1985. Het volledige concert is hier te vinden.


'Why Worry'  Dire Straits

Baby I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the things they say
But baby I'll wipe away those bitter tears
I'll chase away those restless fears
That turn your blue skies into grey

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now
Why worry now

Baby when I get down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn't hard to say
But baby just when this world seems mean and cold
Our love comes shining red and gold
And all the rest is by the way

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now
Why worry now
