BANANARAMA | Middle Of Nowhere

LYRICS:

Traveling down that open road
The sun beats down on me
The mountains reach up to the sky
That's where I want to be

It's just an ordinary day
Going my own way
Nothing around obscures my view
And then I saw you

Saw you standing there
Middle of nowhere
Saw you standing there
Middle of nowhere
Saw you standing there
You know it's a place for me

You said that you were going my way
And could you hitch a ride
I took one look and had to smile
How could I pass you by

The way your hair falls on your face
Ooh you make my heart race
Well I was only passing through
Until I saw you

Saw you standing there
Middle of nowhere
Saw you standing there
Middle of nowhere
Saw you standing there
You know it's a place for me

REVIEWS:
x (...) a summery anthem which swaps the studio trickery for strummed acoustics and a swaying Mediterranean feel. It's a great track, being reminiscent of the best moments of Saint Etienne, and a frustrating glimpse of what [the album] could have been had they not decided to compete in the more poppier end of the market.
