The World's Strongest Man
Scott Walker Lyrics


As the morning turned my way
See birds flying through this hazy face
And I came back here to replace your place in my life

And didn't you know that I'm not the world's strongest man
When it comes to you and your world I'm lost
Can't you see the towers of mine they could shine like a dime
Take me back again to your warm desire

And again again again
Longing for belongings here again
And I need your love you know I can't pretend anymore

And didn't you know that I'm not the world's strongest man
When it comes to you and your world I'm lost
Can't you see the towers of mine they could shine like a dime
Take me back again to your warm desire

As the morning turned my way
Sea birds flying through this hazy face
And I came back here, to replace your place
In my life

And didn't you know that I'm not the world's strongest man?
When it comes to you, and your world, I'm lost
Can't you see the towers of my naked shine like a dime?
Take me back again to your warm design

And again, again, again
Longing for belongings here again
And I need your laugh, you know I can't pretend it
Anymore

And didn't you know that I'm not the world's strongest man?
When it comes to you, and your world, I'm lost
Can't you see the towers of my naked shine like a dime?
Take me back again to your warm design

I dont think ive been the same person since Scott died, i feel like ive lost a part of me.
Its coming up 2 yrs since he left us, & ive been in hospital twice & felt...well just not the same.
I cried for days, weeks when he died & even now i could weep.
I know i didnt know him but since 1965 when i was almost 13yrs old i fell for him hook line & sinker & my 2 best friends at school, Catherine loved John & Susan loved Gary, & for me it was Scott. We loved the Walker Brothers. He was there all through my life.
Now he isnt.
Oddly just a few years before he died id dream about him alot & actually be with him in these dreams & i kept thinking... My
God! Im actually walking & talking to Scott
It was wonderful & he hadnt aged in my dreams, he was the Scott aged 25 !
I miss him so very badly, may be if there's a place i can go to when i die & i will have a Scott of my very own because it will be the heaven i want with a huge library & id be able to read every book in any language, be able to wear medieval clothes, live in a castle with trees everywhere & my companion for all time would be Scott. Yes i think that would be pretty brilliant.

Tiny song but it's a giant for showing vulnerability, honesty, laying opening th soul
I could listen to this on repeat for hours. The physical man may have cast off from Earth but what he's left for us is just Bloody well Fantastic. He's now a star of th very highest Magnitude ☆☆☆☆☆

Scott's voice is so incomparable, so much emotion, it's on an endless loop for me. Thank you Scott for giving so much. Miss you so much.

I love this song. I listened over and over and cried.

Me Me

Best song about pining for someone’s love ever written period. It’s probably the most overused topic in popular music and Walker killed all that really needs to be said in just over 2 minutes, He had a knack for knowing when to not be too excessive imo.

John Anthony

Scott Walker had the finest male voice in popular music and wrote exraordinary good songs and interpreted Jacques Brel so well. Loved his work since the sixties. Meet you on the ledge Scott.

michael downes

Have got all his albums. Been listening to this guy since 1965. Being a part-time writer, I was moved to write a short story after listening to Plastic Palace People. His songs throws up so many images. Thank you, guidofski!!

Nope Nopington

I love this song. It's exactly what I needed to hear right now.

Amen! Love is beating me down right now - Scott knows my hurting.
