#Wednesday Words – 15th May 2013

Well as Markus is enjoying a holiday, I have been left the reigns to do a Wednesday Words. Now Markus knows my music taste very well, so that pretty brave of him!!

But first, a quick shameless plug for my charity blog. In April I cycled from London to Paris for a childrens hospice in Sussex  I blogged daily on the trip, and its a great read of a journey of a life time. Its here if you feel its worth a read!

Anyway back to Wednesday Words. Given this task, its actually difficult to select a song based purely on words. The song I have chosen, the words alone have no real connection with me, but when placed with instruments, the song comes alive. Every time I hear this song, I always think its so so powerful, despite not having any real connection to the lyrics. If you have lost a loved one, broken up with someone, or have lost someone close to you, these lyrics will touch you. I urge you to follow the youtube link at the end and watch the video with the music included. Its moving, its powerful, its epic.

The band, Evanescence, rose to fame my mixing hard rock \ soft metal with a womans voice that was actually singing, not screaming. Amy Lee voice is strong, clear and she sings with such emotion and clarity. The song is My Immortal, and for me it is by far the best song the band has done. Its soft, mellow yet powerful and thought prevoking. I have linked the full band version, as for me, the end half, and how it builds up, is written superbly and just fits together perfectly. The original is solely the voice and piano, and although still is great, it doesn’t give the drama that the band does.

So here are the lyrics:

I’m so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
Your presence still lingers here
And it won’t leave me alone

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus:]
When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now I’m bound by the life you left behind
Your face – it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice – it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus]

I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me
I’ve been alone all along

[Chorus]

I urge you to follow this link and watch the video to the song. You wont be disappointed.

Thats my Wednesday words for this week. No idea if I’ve done it right, but this is what I imagined!! 🙂

I’ll be back next Wednesday with another Wednesday Words. I’ll try and select a song that has meaning for me, so I can talk about it a bit more!!

Wednesday words 01/05/13

This weeks Wednesday words is all about love. Love, support and admiration for the wonderful Emma Crazywithtwins and big special Love for my wonderful wife!

As every week there will be some lyrics from a Pink song which I shall dedicate to Mr & Mrs Crazywithtwins. All the stuff these two have already been through and are still facing is absolutely mind blowing!

So without further ado another set of Lyrics from Pink’s latest album

for Mr & Mrs Crazywithtwins

Pink (feat. Nate Ruess)
“Just Give Me A Reason”

Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me
That weren’t all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them

Now you’ve been talking in your sleep, oh, oh
Things you never say to me, oh, oh
Tell me that you’ve had enough
Of our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars
It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
We’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I’m sorry I don’t understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine
(Oh, we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin’
And it’s all in your mind
(Yeah but this is happenin’)

You’ve been havin’ real bad dreams, oh, oh
You used to lie so close to me, oh, oh
There’s nothing more than empty sheets
Between our love, our love
Oh, our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
I never stopped
You’re still written in the scars on my heart
You’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, tear ducts and rust
I’ll fix it for us
We’re collecting dust
But our love’s enough
You’re holding it in
You’re pouring a drink
No nothing is as bad as it seems
We’ll come clean

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars
It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
That we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit’s enough
Just a second we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It’s in the stars
It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
That we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, oh, that we’re not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

That concludes this weeks installment of Pink lyrics.

The next lyrics that are coming up are from a pop group which a good friend of mine put his nose up at once!

You all know the phrase “our song” when it comes to couples. Well this is our song. The first ever gig we went to together was actually that band at ‘the Brighton centre’

Snow Patrol ‘Chasing Cars’

Snow Patrol ‘Chasing Cars’

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Here you have it: Snow Patrol ‘Chasing Cars’ which is as you say ” our song “!

I don’t actually talk that much or that often about my wonderful, brilliant wife. Apart from our boys she is by far the best thing that ever happened to me. Well if she had not happened the boys wouldn’t have happened either so from that point of view she is by far the best thing that has ever, ever happened to me! I can’t begin to tell you how much I love her and what she and the boys mean to me!

So there you have it a very intense, full of love, admiration and adoration Wednesday words this week!

1st Guestpost

The very first guest post for this blog is a lovely, romantic, little post from K & C of @mytwomums what now follows is a brief account of their journey to motherhood if you like to know more please read their blog.

I never thought my hatred of mushrooms would help me meet the woman I would spend the rest of my life with.

Both C and I were members of a social networking site. C’s profile listed she was a mushroom hater. Most would find this incredibly random. I on the other side saw it as an opportunity to declare my hatred too. We swapped messages for several weeks before meeting and noticing a spark.

C was at Uni at the time we met. I stayed at her flat one night and then never left. We spent almost every day together.

Our lives started to change in 2008 when C proposed to me on Brighton Beach as the sun was setting the day before Brighton Pride.

We decided if we were going to get married and start a family, we wanted it to be somewhere that made us happy.

So in 2010 our lives changed again when we moved from Middlesex to Dorset. We instantly felt at home. That October we got married in front of our closest family and friends in a gorgeous inn by the countryside.

Once married we were eager to start a family. We spent many an evening researching how we would manage it. We discovered a clinic in Denmark that offered a donor service and booked our flights. But it wasn’t meant to be.

We were lucky enough to find a new route. Within a couple of months C was pregnant. We were over the moon. Just to keep us on our toes C had several scares. At 9 weeks she started bleeding. Scans and tests followed and she was given the all clear.

Each month we got closer to holding our little baby we realised how much our lives had changed.

At 36 weeks C had some complications. She had developed Cholestasis and at 38 was induced.

On the 30th July 2012 we met our beautiful baby boy. Our lives had certainly changed for the best. We could never have visualised 5 years ago that we’d be married with a son living in the countryside. But we couldn’t be happier.

Thank you ever so much K & C for writing this wonderful little post for me. I do feel honored that my 1st guest post comes from such lovely ladies. Here is wishing you and your family unit all the very best!
