WAXING LYRICAL WITH PETE SCOTT

As an integral part of any song, lyrics act a way for artists to divulge their thoughts with listeners, but with so many songs out there, how can you be sure to hear all of these messages?

To grasp these hidden meanings, we have asked PETE SCOTT to showcase some of their favourite, original lyrics and are pleased to feature him as our Waxing Lyrical!

Today’s Waxing Lyrical With PETE SCOTT dives into the lyrics of his song ‘180 Degrees’.

 

This song was written back in 2003 at a time where I was trying to decide what the most important things in my life were, what I could live without and what I needed to come back to ( hence the title). My musical life had started taking off but I wanted to reflect on my faith and my relationship with my faith. The lyrics are metaphors for not just my relationship with God at that time but also friends, girlfriends and family.

 

180 degrees 

 

It doesn’t matter anyway 

Still playing the same old game 

It doesn’t matter anyway 

It doesn’t mean much to me

 

I sit around waiting 

I sit around blaming 

I sit around waiting 

For your love to come to me

 

(Chorus)

Woohoo x2

180, 180 , 180 degrees

 

I’m the sailboat sailing 

I’m the thing you gave me

I’m the sailboat sailing 

On a stormy sea

You’re my biggest ocean

You’re my act of devotion 

You’re my biggest ocean 

A path that’s left for me

 

(Chorus) x 4

 

(Middle eight)

Turning around 180 x3 

Turning around 

 

I’m the star shining

I’m the mountain you’re climbing 

I’m the star shining waiting to be free

 

I walk around freezing 

But I’m still believing 

I walk around freezing 180 degrees 

 

(Chorus) 

(Outro) 180 180 180 degrees (until end)
