On My Plate

In this episode of "On My Plate" we''re discussing what I have been listening to. I can only take so much Queen and Eiffel65, so I had to burn a few CDs off of iTunes. I am currently fixated on James Blunt. His album "Back to Bedlam" is fascinating. He has an incredibly distinct voice and is a lyrically complex writer. His album is #2 on iTunes, but I like to pat myself on the back because I loved him before he was popular and well-known. :} My favorite song on the album is Goodbye My Lover.

...
Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what's mine by eternal right,
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over, but it won't stop there,
I am here for you if you'd only care.

You touched my heart, you touched my soul; you changed my life and all my goals.
Love is blind and that I knew well, my heart is blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your head; shared you dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell, I've been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover, goodbye my friend;
You have been the one,
You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer and when I wake you can't break my spirit, it's my dreams you take.
And as you move on, remember me, remember us and all we used to be.
I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile; I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child, I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine, we've had our doubts but now we're fine
And I love you, I swear that's true. I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover, goodbye my friend;
You have been the one,
You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine, in mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bare my soul in time when I'm kneeling at your feet.

Goodbye my lover, goodbye my friend;
You have been the one,
You have been the one for me.

I'm so hollow. I'm so hollow. I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.

Some of us were talking the other night about how many of the love songs and worship songs we know could be interchanged...Except for the kissing and goodbye part, I guess...

I LOVE James Blunt! I've been listening to You're Beautiful a ton lately b/c it's on a mix CD I burned.

I'm also currently obsesses with Lifehouse and David Gray.
