So Damn Polite

i wish I hadn’t been so damn polite
i wish i’d aimed spit into my enemies eyes
stamped their toes till they bled
and twisted their mischievous arms

always too nice for my own good
always the one in the lonely corner
playground blues from year to year
and shaky knees with no cure

everyone loves an honest girl
even if it’s only to use her
i wished i’d been just a little more fake
and not worn my heart on so many sleeves

Rachel Sermanni (Don’t Fade)

Sanity

A friend is losing his sight today
he says, silence is death
and music, has become the comforter

I thought of you today
the tragedy, of a mother’s world fading
how music kept you sane, in the dark

Music is my friend today
tomorrow, and always
my sanity hangs on every note

Ace Of Base (Beautiful Life)

This was a hit in the UK in 1995, I recall the song, but not the video.
Does anyone else remember Beautiful Life?

Brand New Flag (Let The Boys Be Girls)

Neil Cowley (Grace)

Some chill out music for you from Neil Cowley.  Relax or be inspired!

Fears (Here and After)

Listen and Wait (Grizzly Bear)

.

I adore this song, thought I’d share some Grizzly Bear with you today!

A joker inside, a jumble man re-brought to life
And it’s gone by the night, the morning brings it back, give back

And step towards the light
Imagine fades, a vision running wild
And hides in the lights
A battered face, smiles shouting loud
Listen and wait, for a voice that calls you on

Careful, find your balance ‘fore you fall
Blinded, blind-sighted by yourself
Banished from that home you’ve always loved, so far

Down on the grass, dreamed nothing much
Stay where you are, we’ll walk alone

Step towards towards the light
Imagine fades, a vision running wild
And hides in the lights
A battered face, smiles shouting loud
Listen and wait, for a voice that calls you on
