UB40 – Kingston Town

Woken from a deep sleep again today at 3:10am after dreaming about most of the Ward Family.

We had all gathered, for some reason, at the Fort (the playing fields) to celebrate the birth of another member of the Ward Family, on the side of David & Margie.

It seemed the whole of Castle Vale was out in force and it was like a carnival atmosphere with music blaring from the sound system and the smell of my Aunty Karen’s chicken in the air.  There were faces in my dream that I hadn’t seen in years and people I’d long since forgotten about. Big Den wasn’t there but the coming together of all the Family made it feel like he was. It was another comforting dream, I’ve never dreamt so much about the Ward Family as I have recently.

All of a sudden, out of nowhere, a massive fight broke out. People got hurt bad, the police came and I woke suddenly with this song playing in my head.

It’s been playing over and over, every now and again, after hearing it at my friend’s wedding in Mexico earlier this month.

I felt like sharing it. It seems relevant. Castle Vale had such a bad rep but if you lived there, man, what a place !!

UB40 – Kingston Town

The night seems to fade,
But the moonlight lingers on
There are wonders for everyone
The stars shine so bright,
But they’re fading after dawn
There is magic in Kingston Town

Oh Kingston Town,
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Ooh, ooh, ooh

And when I am king,
surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king,
And my queen will come at dawn
She’ll be waiting in Kingston Town

Oh Kingston Town,
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Ooh, ooh, ooh

And when I am king,
surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king,
And my queen will come at dawn
She’ll be waiting in Kingston Town
