about

Dana Rexx breathes new life into the classic ‘Time Flies’ by Vaya Con Dios with a cover that emphasises the dark atmosphere of the original, but reinvented in a completely different genre.

“Vaya Con Dios was one of the first Belgian artists that I discovered as a teenager, who sang in English and toured internationally. I chose to cover ‘Time Flies’ because the lyrics and melodies have always meant so much to me. Being able to count on no one else but yourself and the fact that everything can change in an instant, is something I learned at a very young age.“

lyrics

LYRICS:
It's been such a funny day
I don't know why
Walking on an endless lane
Life passing me by
Tomorrow is calling
But I'm dragging my feet
The skies are indecently clear
But I can't stand the heat

Sleep walking in a haze
Stumbling like a child
Dragons that I used to chase
Tease me from inside
The future's uncertain
Just like yesterday
Memories of heaven
Can be taken away

You know, time flies
And the rebels, one day, they all go quiet
Ain't no money, ain't nobody
That can buy you peace of mind
Ain't no money, ain't nobody
That can buy you peace of mind

They say you learn from your mistakes
It's a lie
My redemption has been staged
Numerous times
But the angels of passion
Still taunt me in my sleep
They keep throwing petals
And thorns underneath my feet

You know, time flies
And the rebels, one day, they all go quiet
Ain't no money, ain't nobody
That can buy you peace of mind
Ain't no money, ain't nobody
That can buy you peace of mind
