thanks bhpip for reminding me of the concept, you know, songs you would use if there was a movie of your life.....
see the radio blog to the right here which i am updating as i go to 'soundtrack' my blog life as I go.
Make it real, keep it real AJ said to close a message to the Thistlebar group earlier this week.
I am loving it real, even though sometimes it really hurts.
No pain no gain
(Cliche - level one - 2)
We are placed - find ourselves in situations we could have never expected - but we went cos we knew it was the place to go.
We are ambassaors of Glory.
Glory as in - hey, ok so you are telling me you know everything cos you done heroin, and no-one, no-one knows what you went through
And your dad dont give a shit
But you laud his progress and postion in life cos he travels the world First Class
And you are 30, and all I can say is, I am 41, and I am just recently thinking about becoming an adult........
And I know where your coming from
And we have a bond, a connection, and it is U2
Cos I sang a song you connected with me and you treated me as if I was your brother
Even though I was not high, except on the lyrical (and a couple of pints and maybe a JD and coke)
But we connected - cos you came to me and gave me 'the handshake' and stuck your face right in my ear to tell me 'that was fucking beautiful'
And I didnt know I was doing it for you, but I knew because I knew it was real and meant something to me, touched my soul, then I couldnt be the only one
So I retrospectively do it for you - Lee.......
And then I get into a taxi to come home, and it is another Lee, who I know from way way back and we talk of bands and music and such.....
and i share the same thought that consett has always cried out for a top live music venue.....
and I thank - I learn the lesson - i am on my knees and I do not deny the Glory that I carry within me because of the people I have met.
Not self-glory. though through it I am wrapped within It.
It is undeniable
It shows the curve of the moon through all the darkness.
And I do see you in it.
'Don't believe what you hear
Don't believe what you see
If you just close your eyes you can feel the enemy.........'
'You can swallow and you can spit
You can throw it up
Or choke on it
You can dream, so dream out loud
You know that your time is coming round.......
So dont let the bastards grind you down......'
