Do you believe? Believe in love?

Josh - Hugh

Give me something to work with
‘Cause I, I’m gonna need a little more DIRECTION
Give me something to work with
‘Cause I, I’m gonna need a little more DIRECTION
Give me something to work with
‘Cause I, I’m gonna need a little more DIRECTION

Somewhere, in a fox hole
Trying to remember your name
Standing on sixty, the chapel
Reaching out to touch your hand
‘Cause I, I
‘Cause I, I

Do you believe? Believe in love?
In all the kinds of love, or just the ones you understand?
Do you believe? Believe in love?
In all kinds of love?
In all kinds of love?

In all the kinds of love, or just the ones you understand?
Do you believe? Believe in love?
In all kinds of love?
In all kinds of love?

Give me something to work with

These are the lyrics to Direction, the brilliant song, by London-based band, Hugh. “The song stopped me in my tracks on first listen, then I focused in on the lyrics”, says Life Elsewhere host, Norman B. The inspiration and background story to Direction is explained with surprising and candid detail by Joshua Idehen of Hugh in the next edition of Life Elsewhere. Hailing from Benin City in Southern Nigeria, poet, and spoken word artist, Idehen is a bubbling source of cultural references from obscure movies to classic literature. The story he tells of how the song Direction came to be will surprise you almost as much as the unlikely reason for the band’s name, Hugh. Make sure you do not miss Josh from Hugh on the next edition of Life Elsewhere. The broadcast times are below.
