Lindi Ortega – Tin Star

Lindi Ortega is een Canadese singer-songwriter die het probeert te maken in de States. Wat ze wil bereiken vertelt ze in deze interessante song.  Wat mij betreft is dit een fris nieuw geluid in de countrywereld. Ze zit al in de showbizz vanaf 2001 maar sinds haar verhuis in 2011 naar Nashville zit haar carrière in de lift. Tin Star is de sterke titelsong van haar vierde album dat nu recent uitkwam.

Songtekst :

Boy you don’t know me
I’m a nobody
Singin on this trip
For a few pennies
I got a busted string
And broken guitar
I’ve been singing for tips
Down at the local bar
Like an old tin star
I’m beat up and rusty
Lost in the shining skies
Of Nashville Tennessee
Well I wrote this song
For those who are like
Like in the shining stars, the shining stars
Well we don’t got fame
No name in lies
No billboard hits
No sold out nights
We got dews to pay
Tryna make a way
Some of us wait on luck
While some just pray

Like an old tin star
I’m beat up and rusty
Lost in the shining skies
Of Nashville Tennessee
Well I wrote this song
For those who are like
Like in the shining stars, the shining stars

Well if the music wasn’t ready
Through the blood in my veins
I might just walk away
Oh I walk away
But the music keeps on running
Through the blood in my veins
And it just makes me stick
Oh it makes me stick

Like an old tin star
I’m beat up and rusty
Lost in the shining skies
Of Nashville Tennessee
Well I wrote this song
For those who are like me
Like in the shining stars, the shining stars
Of Nashville Tennessee
For those who are like me
