The very good Moody Blues had successful with the nice tune “Nights in White Satin.”
Now, with most of my misheard lyrics, I finally came upon the proper phrases. Nevertheless, I hereby swear to you that till yesterday, I assumed they sang “knights” as an alternative of “nights.” Not solely does this alteration the tune’s which means considerably, however it additionally utterly upends my understanding of the universe. I imply, is nothing unchanging? Is there nothing immutable we will cling to in instances of turmoil? Egad.
Listed below are the actual lyrics:
“Nights in white satin
By no means reaching the top
Letters I’ve written
By no means which means to ship”
Which model do you favor?
