The magic of music

Every once in a while you hear a song that just leaves you completely swept away by the melody, the lyrics, everything. The song becomes you and you become it. This hasn’t happened to me in quite a while, but listening to Katie Melua’s latest album, piece by piece, I came accross the song towards the end of the album entitled Just like heaven.

Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream he said
The one that makes me laugh he said
And threw his arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I’ll run away with you
I’ll run away with you

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed his face and kissed his head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make him glow
Why are you so far away? he said
Why won’t you ever know that I’m in love with you
That I’m in love with you

You, soft and only
You,lost and lonely
You, strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You’re just like a dream
You’re just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe his name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only boy I loved
And drowned him deep inside of me

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

This is truely amazing track for those who like to sit and think every once in a while. My fave line from this song is now in the random quotes database, if you can spot it when it appears.

Oh, and for those who have been e-mailing me asking for all the quotes on a special page, they are coming ;)
