if I could make a wish
I think I'd pass
can't think of anything I need. . .
.
no cigarettesno sleep
.
.
no light
.
.
no sound
.
.
nothing to eat
. .
no books to read .
making love with you
.
.
has left me peaceful, warm, and tired
.
.
what more could I ask
.
.
there's nothing left to be desired
.
peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
so sleep, silent angel, go to sleep
.
.
sometimes,
all I need is the air that I breathe
and to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
yes to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
sometimes,
all I need is the air that I breathe
and to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
yes to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
and to love you
all I need is the air that I breathe
yes to love you

One of your bestest posts ever, ever ever.

I hadn't got a clue what it was for ages: the lines are so short, you see, and don't bring to mind a tune. Then I got to the bit with the angel, and just folded into a puddle.

Bless you and your beautiful view.

takes one to know one

I would really love to know how you make firefox announce your blog with little music notes in between the words!
It is lovely by Simply Red but I remember being a soppy teenager to the Hollies version :)
Thank you for a lovely afternoon:)

I copied them onto the clipboard thingy (Ctrl C), from one of the song titles on The Tube; then pasted (Crtl V) them into the blog title, on the bit inside your blog where you can fiddle around with your settings and the font sizes

(I prefer The Hollies too, really, I find Mick Hucknal's voice a little acidic at times. . .)(thank you for a lovely time)

lovely...lovely...lovely.

i had no idea if this was a song i was familiar with until i came to the VERY last bit.

your pictures are perfect. like so (too) often, i never paid much attention to the lyrics to this song.

they're oh-so beautiful without the melody mucking it all up.

this post could make me cry...

i really enjoy reading your blog. thanks for having me :-)

I got distracted by the photographs...and had to go back to the top to read the lyrics...

Gordie said...

===> is very much in favour of soppy teenage stuff, at whatever time of life it feels right.

Mel said...

Perfect.

Wonderful photographs to go with the haunting lyrics.....absolutely perfect. :-)

I like view very much, still, thank you.

Mel said...
