Missy Higgins – Where I Stood



MISSY HIGGINS LYRICS

“Where I Stood”
I don’t know what I’ve done

Or if I like what I’ve begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it’s all or none

There were sounds in my head
LIttle voices whispering
That I should go and this should end
Oh and I found myself listening

‘Cos I dont know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

See I thought love was black and white
That it was wrong or it was right
But you ain’t leaving without a fight
And I think I am just as torn inside

‘Cos I dont know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

And I won’t be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself and so I say to you
This is what I have to do

‘Cos I dont know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood
Oh, she who dares to stand where I stood

Quotation: Jerome K. Jerome on Love :)


If you would taste love, drink of the pure stream that youth pours out at your feet. Do not wait till it has become a muddy river before you stoop to catch its waves.

Haiku -Love  (poetic thought by George-B)

Love as brush fires
Dies down too fast to see how
DNA’s sole winner…

Leonard Cohen-Always


Uploaded on Jan 28, 2008

(Oh friends, … don’t matter if you’re a man or a woman.
If you’re in love with somebody,
these are the words that you got to learn to say. 
Now listen carefully. Here it comes…)

I’ll be loving you always
with a love that’s true, always
When the thing you’ve planned
needs my helping hand,
I will understand, always, always

Days may not be fair, always
Yeah but that’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day,
Not for just a year, but always.

I said that I’ll be loving you, always
with a love that’s true, always.
When the thing you’ve planned
needs my helping hand,
I will, I will understand, always, always

(Oh that’s pretty … that’s pretty too … Oh darling)

The days may not be fair, always
Yeah but that’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just a second, or a minute, or an hour,
Not for just a weekend and a shake down in the shower,
Not for just the summer and the winter going sour,
But always, always, always

(Ok if you don’t want to quit, let’s try it one more time)

I’ll be loving you, always
with a love that’s true, always.
When the thing you’ve planned
needs my helping hand,
I will understand, I will, I will understand, always, always

The days may not be fair, always
(Don’t worry, baby)
That’s when I’ll be there, always
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day,
Not for just a year, but always.

Quotation: Jerome K. Jerome on character modeling…


It is just at the very age when a man’s character is forming that he tumbles into love, and then the lass he loves has the making or marring of him. Unconsciously he molds himself to what she would have him, good or bad.

Heaven by Brandi Carlile



This song is a cover of “Heaven” by Bryan Adams.

Oh – thinkin’ about all our younger years
There was only you and me
We were young and wild and free

Now nothin’ can take you away from me
We’ve been down that road before
But that’s over now
You keep me comin’ back for more
Baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven

And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn’t too hard to see
We’re in heaven

Oh – once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you’re feelin’ down

Ya – nothin’ could change what you mean to me
Oh there’s lots that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

Now nothin’ can take you away from me
We’ve been down that road before
But that’s over now
You keep me comin’ back for more
Baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven

I’ve been waitin’ for so long
For somethin’ to arrive
For love to come along

Now our dreams are comin’ true
Through the good times and the bad
Ya – I’ll be standin’ there by you

the embrace (poetic thought by George-B) —-Now on Soundcloud!—-


Embrace (poetic thought by George-B)

“We never let go from our embrace –
I did not want to be the one, 
the one to break the bliss.
So on we kept and even now
we’re still engaged in the first hug…”

The dream of youth,
the dream of love,
that life has built inside us
to cherish rather than to mourn
that we have missed,
today and days to come.

Leonard Cohen – ‘You Know Who I Am’


You Know Who I Am 

(by Leonard Cohen)

I cannot follow you, my love,

you cannot follow me.

I am the distance you put between

all of the moments that we will be.


You know who I am,

you've stared at the sun,

well I am the one who loves

changing from nothing to one.


Sometimes I need you naked,

sometimes I need you wild,

I need you to carry my children in

and I need you to kill a child.


You know who I am...


If you should ever track me down

I will surrender there

and I will leave with you one broken man

whom I will teach you to repair.


You know who I am...


I cannot follow you, my love,

you cannot follow me.

I am the distance you put between

all of the moments that we will be.


You know who I am...

Damien Rice, Cold Water & Hallelujah – Gent Jazz


Cold, cold water surrounds me now
And all I’ve got is your hand
Lord, can you hear me now?
Lord, can you hear me now?
Lord, can you hear me now?
Or am I lost?Love one’s daughter
Allow me that
And I can’t let go of your hand
Lord, can you hear me now?
Lord, can you hear me now?
Lord, can you hear me now?
Or am I lost?
Cold, cold water surrounds me now
And all I’ve got is your hand
Lord, can you hear me now?

Or am I lost?    (Read more  here…  )

I Need you The Webb Sisters and The Beatles


You don’t realise how much I need you.
Love you all the time and never leave you.
Please come on back to me. 
I’m lonely as can be. I need you.

Said you had a thing or two to tell me. 
How was I to know you would upset me?
I didn’t realise as I looked in your eyes…
You told me.

Oh yes, you told me, you don’t want my lovin’ anymore.
That’s when it hurt me. 
And feeling like this, I just can’t go on anymore.

Please remember how I feel about you, I could never really live without you. 
So, come on back and see just what you mean to me. 
I need you.

But when you told me, you don’t want my lovin’ anymore.
That’s when it hurt me. 
And feeling like this, I just can’t go on anymore.
Please remember how I feel about you. 
I could never really live without you. 
So, come on back and see just what you mean to me. 
I need you. I need you. I need you.

Dido – Life for Rent lyrics


“Life For Rent”

I haven’t ever really found a place that I call home
I never stick around quite long enough to make it
I apologize once again I’m not in love
But it’s not as if I mind
that your heart ain’t exactly breaking

It’s just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

I’ve always thought
that I would love to live by the sea
To travel the world alone
and live more simply
I have no idea what’s happened to that dream
Cos there’s really nothing left here to stop me

It’s just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

If my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

While my heart is a shield and I won’t let it down
While I am so afraid to fail so I won’t even try
Well how can I say I’m alive

If my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

If my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

One Love/People Get Ready” is a reggae/rhythm and blues song by Bob Marley & The Wailers from their 1977 album Exodus. It was first recorded in a ska style by Marley’s original group, The Wailers, on their 1965 debut album The Wailing Wailers, and a heavily reworked version was included on African Herbsman under the name “All in One”. A classic Bob Marley & The Wailers song, it has been included on many of their compilation albums. The song contains an interpolation of The Impressions‘ song “People Get Ready” written by Curtis Mayfield. Marley’s hybrid version is titled, “One Love/People Get Ready,”[1] and it gives co-authorship credits to both Marley and Mayfield. This song was inspired by Marley’s friend Roman Selvaggio, a North Caribbean painter.
