My universe needs balance

Yeah, yeah. I know. Yesterday I was all Little Miss Cynical. Today, I give it counterbalance by providing you with this lovely little tune. I'm not 100% cold hearted and shut off from the concept of love. I just don't like the ├╝ber importance placed on one single holiday.  It's too much pressure.

Ladies and gentlemen, from her album Medusa: Annie Lennox


Something So Right

You've got the cool water
When the fever runs high
And you've got the look of love right in your eyes
And I was in a crazy motion
'Till you calmed me down

It took a little time
But you calmed me down

Some people never say the words "I love you"
It's not their style to be so bold
Some people never say the words "I love you"
But like a child they're longing to be told

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
And I've got a wall around me
That you can't even see

It took a little time
To get next to me

If something goes worng, I'm the first to admit it
The first to admit it - but the last one to know
If something goes right, well, it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
Because it's such an unusual sight, oh
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

Some people never say the words "I love you"
It's not their style to be so bold
Some people never say the words "I love you"
But like a child I'm longing to be told

They've got a wall in China...
And I've got a wall around me...
Yea

It took a little time
To get next to me

  2. Did you know that my boy Paul Simon wrote that song? It's on his second solo album, "There Goes Rhymin Simon". Annie Lennox does a beautiful job of it though.

  3. Sherrie, I thought I'd heard it some where else. Annie does a lot of covers. Last night I was on her youtube channel and reveling in all the songs I wasn't totally familiar with.

    Now, I need to find Paul's original :) Thanks.

  4. Excellent song. I agree, I've never been a big fan of Valentine's Day. I think it's a whole lot of hype. If you love someone why make a big show of it once a year? Do a little every day.
