Indigenous Music #56

Jessica Mauboy

The 56th post of Indigenous music of Australia is the “poppiest” song I have put on this irregular Saturday series. It is Jessica Mauboy with “Inescapable”.

“Inescapable” was released at the beginning of July 2011 and reached number four on the ARIA Singles Chart. It was her 5th top ten song in Australia.

And no, I didn’t know all that. I had to look it up. To help you sing along I have put the lyrics below the clip.

I’ll be inescapable, unshakable, incapable
You won’t get rid of me, get rid of me (yeah)

I’m gonna get to you, I’ll wear wear wear you down
All your defences, gonna tear tear tear them down
All of the reasons why this won’t won’t work
You’ll find they don’t don’t work no more (no more)

If you’re dreaming, I’ll sneak in
Lock your door and I’ll creep in
When you’re waking, when you’re sleeping
I will be there

Chorus
I’ll be inescapable, like a song in your head
Unshakable, try to fight but you’ll be incapable
You won’t get rid of me, get rid of me (yeah)
You think you can keep me out
I’ll be all you think about
My spell will be unbreakable
I’ll be inescapable

I’ll knock your walls down
They’ll be cave cave caving in
Give you a taste and you’ll be crave crave craving it
And you’ll be wanting me around ’round ’round
I got no doubt doubt doubt about it

If you’re hiding, I’ll find you
You can run but why try to
Like a shadow, behind you
I will be there

Chorus
I’ll be inescapable, like a song in your head
Unshakable, try to fight but you’ll be incapable
You won’t get rid of me, get rid of me (yeah)
You think you can keep me out
I’ll be all you think about
My spell will be unbreakable
I’ll be inescapable

I’ll be the shadow that is always around you
I’ll be the air that’s gonna always surround you
Guess what I’m saying what it really comes down to is I’ll be there, (oh yeah)

And you can think go on think you’re gonna stop it
But every dream you’re gonna dream I’m gonna haunt it
I’m staying on it, making a promise (yeah)

Chorus
I’ll be inescapable, like a song in your head
Unshakable, try to fight but you’ll be incapable
You won’t get rid of me, get rid of me (yeah)
You think you can keep me out (hey, hey)
I’ll be all you think about
(…Spell will be) My spell will be unbreakable (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
I’ll be inescapable

(Oh) My spell will be unbreakable, yeah
I’ll be inescapable
(I will be… I will be there)
