Puzzle: Cliff Richard’s Choice of Imagery

2013

Some People

Unexpectedly, for 30 seconds in the 80’s Cliff Richard raised an impossible question of intentionality.

 

Cliff Richard: Some People

Some people they tease one another/ Take pride in themselves/ Keeping the other one down/ Well I’m not like that at all

Some people they hurt one another/ They love to see/ Hurt in the other one’s eyes/ Well I’m not like that at all

Some people are born for each other/ They love to walk/ Holding the other one’s hand/ They always understand/ Some people cry/ Some people know why

Some people they use one another/ So aimlessly/ Not like lovers do/ Well I’m not like that at all

Some people they long for each other/ They love to walk/ Holding the other one’s hand/ They always understand/ Some people cry/ Some people know why

With a word unspoken/ With a voice unheard/ When a thought is broken/ By a tender word/ When a heart is moved/ When a heart is thrown/ The silence tells you/ You’re not alone
