Lyrics On Friday

One of my Christmas presents this year was John Mayers album, Continuum. It’s a great album – of what I’ve heard of him so far, it’s definitely my favourite. I’ve been loving this particular song…

Is there anyone who
Ever remembers changing there mind from
The paint on a sign?
Is there anyone who really recalls
Ever breaking rank at all
For something someone yelled real loud one time

Everyone believes
In how they think it ought to be
Everyone believes
And they’re not going easily

Belief is a beautiful armor
But makes for the heaviest sword
Like punching under water
You never can hit who you’re trying for

Some need the exhibition
And some have to know they tried
It’s the chemical weapon
For the war that’s raging on inside

Everyone believes
From emptiness to everything
Everyone believes
And no ones going quietly

We’re never gonna win the world
We’re never gonna stop the war
We’re never gonna beat this
If belief is what we’re fighting for

What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand
Belief can
Belief can
What puts the folded flag inside his mother’s hand
Belief can
Belief can

[Belief – John Mayer]

What’s been the soundtrack to your week?

    I having been really enjoying Bon Iver’s album ‘For Emma, forever ago’.

    “Only love is all maroon

    Gluey feathers on a flume

    Sky is womb and she’s the moon”

    It is odd,raw and pretty beautiful and I might go and listen to it right now.
