Another music thread

I have mentioned that I generally do well when I am in constant motion. Unfortunately today I have very little on my plate. Very little work, I cleaned the house from top to bottom yesterday, all the laundry is done and hung out to dry, even tiny details such as cleaning the inside of the fridge or wiping down shoes in my wardrobe are taken care of. I have exercised extensively already today and just had a healthy lunch. But what is keeping me grounded today is sticking close to SR. So I start another thread.....

We've had many about music but maybe it is time for another.


I love this song, I think of my boyfriend who has put up with so much.

Something about the way that you walked into my living room
Casually and confident lookin' at the mess I am
But still you, still you want me
Stress lines and cigarettes, politics and deficits
Late bills and overages, screamin' and hollerin'
But still you, still you want me
Oh, I always let you down
You're shattered on the ground
But still I find you there
Next to me
And oh, stupid things I do
I'm far from good, it's true
But still I find you
Next to me (next to me)
There's something about the way that you always see the pretty view
Overlook the blooded mess, always lookin' effortless
And still you, still you want me
I got no innocence, faith ain't no privilege
I am a deck of cards, vice or a game of hearts
And still you, still you want me
Oh, I always let you down
You're shattered on the ground
But still I find you there
Next to me
And oh, stupid things I do
I'm far from good, it's true
But still I find you
Next to me
So thank you for taking a chance on me
I know it isn't easy
But I hope to be worth it (oh)
So thank you for taking a chance on me
I know it isn't easy
But I hope to be worth it (oh)
Oh, I always let you down (I always let you down)
You're shattered on the ground (shattered on the ground)
But still I find you there
Next to me
And oh, stupid things I do (stupid things I do)
I'm far from good, it's true
But still I find you
Next to me (next to me)

Here's another I love. When she sings, she sings of another person apologising, but in my mind I think of it as me apologising. I have often daydreamed of dancing with my sons at their wedding to this song. I hope they will forgive me.

[Verse 1]
Sorry
Is all that you can say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like sorry, like sorry

[Verse 2]
Forgive me
Is all that you can say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like forgive, me forgive me

[Hook]
But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time, you'd be mine

[Verse 3]
I love you
Is all that you can say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like I love you, I love you

[Hook]
But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time, you'd be mine
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time, you'd be mine
You'd be mine
You'd be mine

Music is an exploration I can take every day. This morning I discovered this:

Hauntingly beautiful.

Wow, her voice is hard to understand at first listen, but the second time around I could hear it all. Like you described, hauntingly beautiful.
