The Endless Note

Ideal for Christmas

seeing red chic charnley

I had the pleasure of “negotiating” with Chic when he signed for Dumbarton in 1995, which is a story in itself, it may even be in the book!

It is safe to say that Chic came with a bit of a reputation but I have to say that in all the time he was with us he was brilliant, on and off the park, he was without doubt a character and was always looking to make people laugh.

During his spell with us the only time his “dark” side surfaced was during the Dick Jackson Testimonial Match against Rangers when he and Craig Moore had a “bit of a disagreement” resulting in both managers being asked to substitute them before they were sent off.

Buy the book as I’m sure it will raise a smile.

Cover Story – Hurt

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar’s chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

The above is perhaps one of the best cover versions ever, recorded and filmed shortly before Johnny Cash’s passing it is a swansong to beat all.

Here is a live version of Nine Inch Nail’s original composition.
