Dreams

Dreams by the Cranberries

Oh my life is changing everyday

In every possible way

And oh my dreams

It’s never quite as it seems

Never quite as it seems

I know I felt like this before

But now I’m feeling it even more

Because it came from you

Then I open up and see

The person falling here is me

A different way to be

I want more, impossible to ignore

Impossible to ignore

And they’ll come true

Impossible not to do

Possible not to do

And now I tell you openly

You have my heart so don’t hurt me

You’re what I couldn’t find

A totally amazing mind

So understanding and so kind

You’re everything to me

Oh my life is changing everyday

In every possible way

And oh my dreams

It’s never quite as it seems

‘Cause you’re a dream to me

Dream to me

Music Sunday – “Waiting” by Betsy

Betsy is like someone has said in the comments on the YouTube video- Cher reborn. Not like I was a Cher fan, but her voice is her own.

The video sums up how I am feeling.

Check this out, and her other music such as “Lost & Found” and “Little White Lies”

Music Sunday – “Hyperballad” by Bjork, cover by Ben Abraham

This song came out just over 20 years ago. The music, the words, one of the firstĀ songs that really washed over, and grabbed me. Carried me out and I explored such a clear and powerful set of imagery. I only heard it in 2003, but it has been one of my favourite songs ever since.

Here is a beautiful cover, by Ben Abraham. Adore the arrangement.

Music Sunday – “Don’t Worry About Me” by Frances

One of the most beautiful songs I have heard in a long time. I am just thankful Frances has shared her voice with the world.

Makes me think about where I am right now.

Music Sunday – “Better Place” by Rachel Platten

Happy 2016. Entering now my 11th year of this blog now. And as I enter it, plenty is changing, plenty is good. Even though that is terrible grammar.

Music Sunday – “My Song” by Mutya Buena

This has been a favourite of mine for many years. Eight years to be precise now. The lyrics really rang out to me, when feeling weary and it feels like a blanket around the heart.

So listen closely. Save it for a down day.

Music Sunday – “Latch” cover by Natalie Taylor

She has a heart in this song. The arrangement works and it brings a new freshness to an already excellent song.

The lyrics I haven’t noticed as much as I have with this new version.

Music Sunday – “Colors” by Genevieve

This song had a bit of a catchiness too it when I heard it, but then I saw the video and art direction behind it. I loved the Wizard of Oz nod, and the way it is filmed. Show your colours. That simple really.

Music Sunday – “Open Hands” by Ingrid Michaelson

Ingrid has an excellent way of writing beautiful music with lyrics that match. Even if they don’t say the most happiest of things, they can truly express what is real. 

“Nobody wants to be the only one that’s left standing

Nobody wants to be the only one to understand

And now I’m seeing the way that you’re leaving without me
Now go on and drift away

The tide can hold you out

Go quiet now

Go sound go safe

Open hands are hard to hold onto anyway

Anyway”

Music Sunday – “Let it all go” by Birdy and Rhodes

Well, I always believe music finds you. And helps you feel what you need to feel right then and there, when you cannot explain it yourself. Beautiful song and beautiful video.
