New Favourite

This week I’ve been laid low – I think it is thyroid exhaustion – felled by four manic weeks of school holidays and weekends away and compressed working weeks. I’ve had to sleep during the day three times, despite getting decent nights sleep. I figure at least now I can see it, realise what it is and just cut myself some slack. And by slack I mean filthy bathrooms, thick dust and substandard dinner offerings.

Anyway, I’ve had Fun as a New Favourite before, a song and clip I still adore. Eden has been buffeted by life and the last few months have seen wave after wave dump on her and her family. I love her so hard and yet we’ve barely scratched the surface of our friendship. It’s just the kinda gal she is.  She posted this song on her blawg today and well, it spoke to me too.

 

 

Carry on
Well I woke up to the sound of silence
The cars were cutting like knives in a fist fight
And I found you with a bottle of wine
Your head in the curtains
And heart like the fourth of July

You swore and said
We are not
We are not shining stars
This I know
Cause I never said we are

Though I’ve never been through hell like that
I’ve closed enough windows
To know you can never look back

If you’re lost and alone
Or you’re sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
Carry on

Carry on, carry on

So I met up with some friends
At the edge of the night
At a bar off 75
And we talked and talked
About how our parents will die
All our neighbours and wives
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/f/fun/carry+on_20989899.html ]
But I like to think
I can cheat it all
To make up for the times I’ve been cheated on
And it’s nice to know
When I was left for dead
I was found and now I don’t roam these streets
I am not the ghost you want of me

If you’re lost and alone
Or you’re sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
Carry on

Woah
My head is on fire
But my legs are fine
Cause after all they are mine
Lay your clothes down on the floor
Close the door
Hold the phone
Show me how
No one’s ever gonna stop us now

Cause we are
We are shining stars
We are invincible
We are who we are
On our darkest day
When we’re miles away
So we’ll come
We will find our way home

If you’re lost and alone
Or you’re sinking like a stone
Carry on
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground
Carry on

Onward.

    Oh what a gift of a post!! Kim I often go to text you really obscure, inappropriate things like I do my sisters. Maybe I’ll just start doing it randomly … something tells me you won’t mind at all. Xxxx
