Knocked Over

I've been swept along through life keeping my head down,
and I've been wrong more than right. I shouldn't make a sound.
It's like I'm moving through the dark, the world in shades of grey.
And what I'm looking for, I forgot along the way.

Now I'm knocked over and I'm lying on the ground,
But just try to hold me down.


I've fallen too many times and kicked while I've been down.
And once I even jumped and was dragged across the ground.
It's like I'm driving in the dark, down a long freeway.
And I see you in a car Going the other way.

Now I'm knocked over and I'm lying on the ground,
But just try to hold me down.
But just try to hold me down.

I've come a long, long way just to be disappointed.
And there's nothing you can say that would change it anyway.

Now I'm knocked over and I lost another round.
But just try to hold me down.
But just try to hold me down.

Knocked Over by Steve Iannetti is such a beautiful tune..Was a toss up between this and the equally great Danger To Myself from the songs of his i've heard.. In the end decided on Knocked Over tho which is like some long lost Country gem from a great Road Movie in the 60s/70s/80s/90s/2000s Its timeless so any decade would work....The epic cinematic sweep of it reminds me a little in vibe of the excellent Eagles track "Take It To The Limit ". In truth tho, this is closer to the bone and far more real n raw emotionally..Simultaneously heartbreaking and strangely joyful at the same time,its tugging on your heartstrings whilst you knock back yet another JD on the rocks in a mix of drunken reverie n pain.. I met this beautiful woman at a party in the early hours a few months ago and she played/introduced me to the first Ryan Adams album- and the best songs on there had a beauty thru loss that made me want to cry - just like this song does.. "It's like I'm driving in the dark, down a long freeway. And I see you in a car Going the other way " This is classic Americana/Country of the very highest quality.. I had a listen recently to a few modern country pop songs and none of them were even remotely in the same league as this qualatively.. The fact that they're making millions, whilst a song like this is totally unknown can only make me conclude unfortunately that the world is populated by idiots..
