Song of the Day: Everything Happens For A Reason

Today’s Song of the Day is Everything Happens For A Reason from London’s The King Blues. The King Blues fuse indie, ska, punk and folk, and it sounds to me like their influences include The Specials and Hard-Fi. Everything Happens For A Reason is the final song on their third album and is about frontman Itch Fox meeting his love and becoming a father.

The King Blues – Everything Happens For A Reason – Lyrics

The time don’t wait like the changing of the season
Sometimes it makes no sense, but it happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason

I was DJing at a club up in Liverpool
Busting x-ray specs for the kids out of grammer school
She was working there as a dancer
I thought that perhaps there’s a chance I’d romance her
We arranged to meet at different spots of the country
Had a good time though we never had no money
After a couple of weeks with my wide eyes
We moved to a one bedroom flat by the seaside

The time don’t wait like the changing of the season
Sometimes it makes no sense, but it happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason

We spent every minute that we had together
I thought that maybe this could be forever
Then five weeks later, she’s always complaining
About how she feels like she’s fainting
So, she took herself up to see the doctor
‘Bout five minutes before I had to go on tour
I was packing my suitcase with clothes and vaccinations
When I got a text message congratulations

The time don’t wait like the changing of the season
Sometimes it makes no sense but it happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason

My mum gave me the best advice I’d ever had
She said “If you’re going to be a dad, just don’t be like your dad”
I had the textbook template of how not to be
I never thought out of the whole crew the first one’d be me
When I got back home we went to the hospital
She was scared and worried, but I hadn’t lost it all
The quack took us into his office where we had a scan
And I realised for the first time I’d become a man

The time don’t wait like the changing of the season
Sometimes it makes no sense but it happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason

The time don’t wait like the changing of the season
Sometimes it makes no sense but it happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason

The time don’t wait like the changing of the season
Sometimes it makes no sense, but it happens for a reason
Everything happens for a reason
Yeah, Everything happens for a reason

Everything happens for a for reason
