I wish you, (yes, you!), light & love in your life

I'll sing it one last time for you, then we really have to go
You've been the only thing that's right in all I've done

And I can barely look at you, but every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere, away from here

Light up, light up, as if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice I'll be right beside you dear

Louder, louder, and we'll run for our lives; I can hardly speak
I understand why you can't raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye, I nearly do

Slower, slower, we don't have time for that
All I want is to find an easier way to get out of our little heads

Have heart my dear, we're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days, making up for all this mess

You don't need to light the candles for me until tomorrow. Mind you, there will be so many, maybe you ought to start today.

I, Like The View said...

I, Like The View said...

but now I'm back to this again!

"light up, light up"

(nope, despite the subliminal, will not be having one last smoke this evening - it's late and I think I'm already a pumkin)

Anonymous G said...

Mel said...

Mel said...


Yup.....good tune for a Tuesday morning....

Dave said...

My birthday's not for another 9 months now.

Christopher said...

I come here for my mid-morning morale boost. Never fails. Thank you, I,LTV, The Unassuming Genius of the Blogosphere. I'm going to have my coffee now.

Mel said...


Oh, why not...I'll keep the volume on low and I'm sure I can hum along quietly.

THEN I'll investigate the lantern launching. They're way bigger than I thought....and very very cool.

Good Monday to you, ma'am. :-)

Mel said...

Right then.
Very quiet listen since they removed it--dangitall.
Forward on to the lanterns! :-)

Mel said...

<-- found the lantern photo and video very, very cool

<-- owns searching the music website til she found the tune.


mig said...

I really love those flying lanterns. Maybe I'll try and get some for this year.

I, Like The View said...

Christopher I'm speechless

everyone else see above

(mig try here!)(altho, the very first time I ever saw them - in Lloyd's Park in Croydon's green belt - they were home made)

Christopher said...

Some déjà vu here? - but never mind, it's as good a place as any to wish you, dear I, lots of happiness and to thank you most sincerely for all the smiles and all the pleasure your blog has brought me!


mig said...

So much light!
Happy Christmas, dear dear I.
Sending you wishes and big hugs.

Mel said...

((((((((((( ILTV ))))))))))))

Ditto--times two.

Wishing you much love and great joy for the holiday.

*HUGE hugs*

Happy Christmas!!

I, Like The View said...

Mel I love your hugs!

Christopher I ran out of time for what I had planned, but sometimes wonderful things are worth revisiting. . .
