the first time I have ever turned the radio on

in the kitchen. . .
.
I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate?
.

And do they know the places
Where we go
When we're grey and old?
'Cos I´ve been told that salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I’m lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel that love is dead
I’m loving angels instead

And through it all
You offer me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call
You won't forsake me
I’m loving angels instead

When I’m feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
You breathe flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I’m loving angels instead



as sung by ROBBIE
.
and that makes me think of one of my favourite songs:




Don't go jumping waterfalls
Please keep to the lake
People who jump waterfalls
Sometimes can make mistakes
And I need love,
Yeah I need love
Like a second needs an hour
.

Like a raindrop needs a shower
Yeah I need love
Every minute of the day
And it wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide
To go away
And I need love,
Yeah I need love
Like a castle needs a tower
.

Like a garden needs a flower
Yeah I need love
Every minute of the day
And it wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide to go away
.
Don't go chasing polar bears
In the great unknown
Some big friendly polar bear
.

Might want to take you home
And I need love,
Yeah I need love
Like a second needs an hour
Like a raindrop needs a shower
.

Yeah I need love every minute of the day
And It wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide to go away
.
Don't run after motor cars
Please stay on the side
Someone's glossy motor car
..


Might take you for a ride
And I need love, yeah I need love
Like a castle needs a tower
Like a garden needs a flower
.
.

Yeah I need love,
Said I need love
Like a raindrop needs a shower
Like a second needs an hour
Every minute of the day
And it wouldn't be the same
If you ever should decide to go away

Don't go jumping waterfalls

Morning.

I, still, ♥ the views said...

Indeed, it is. How very observant of you. Mind you, only for those of us in the sane time zone.

I, still, ♥ the views said...

Oh. That was supposed to be "same".

Dave said...

Yes, I don't know how many of your readers would claim to be sane.

KAZ said...

I try not to like 'Angels' but I do.
Just don't tell anyone.

Steg said...

The "sane time zone" eh?

*calling Dr Freud*

And, like Kaz, much as it pains me to admit it I'm unable to hear "Angels" without singing along. A guilty pleasure, indeed!

Mel said...

Well, doesn't that about say it all.

There are those in the sane time zone and those of us a bit 'off'. LOL

I'm sure himself will whole heartily agree!

A radio in the kitchen, huh?
Gosh. I think we have one of those. LOL Don't remember ever turnin' that thing on!

Steg said...

The very idea of not having music in the kitchen alarmed me so much I forgot to comment on it.

Unthinkable!

I'll do any amount of cooking, cleaning, washing, whatever as long as I can have some music on while I do it. This is not negotiable.

Dash said...

I prefer a nice bit of Radio 4 in the kitchen when I'm cooking... Does that mean I'm getting old?

:-)

Donn said...

Jeez I thought that it was Don't Go Chasin' Waterfalls by TLC?

Macca's advice to not chase Polar Bears seems reasonable enough... then again, he and his former wife were attacked by a baby Seal!

fathorse said...

What a big, friendly polar bear.

I name him Robert.

This is a strange household...the clock/radios(2, in bedrooms) are tuned to the same station as the main stereo system(living room) and small radio, currently in the kitchen, but sometimes in here.We never change them!
And I LOVE the sane time zone. I'm going to use that term from now on.
Gotta go...on the trail of a book that will identify that bird.

mig bardsley said...

I imagine the sane time zone must be somewhere in between all the other ones. The sane traffic zone, pedestrian zone, twilight zone (?)
Ok. I'll shut up now. I'm not good on time zones.
But I like angels.
And you be careful if you do any waterfall jumping.

Rimshot said...

I haven't been in the 'sane' time zone in years.

A most pleasant good morning, dear I,S,LTV; to you and all who drop by!

Rimshot said...

(and don't tell anyone, but I used to sing 'Angels' as part of my karaoke star repoitoire.) Have you heard Jessica Simpson's horrid (IMHO) rendition?

Dave said...

Good Tuesday morning.

Malc said...

I'm not that keen on Robbie, even though he supports Port Vale FC, where the pies are absolutely fabulous.

Don't know who Macca supports.
