A little weird, but beautiful: I'm not ready to go yet

I'm not ready to go yet - Winchester 🎢

This is a weird song and I love it. The first time I heard the beginning of this song, it reminded me somewhat of the music that set the whole atmosphere for the cult series Twin Peaks: a lamenting high voice and strange music. But soon after, it changed to a more modern weirdness. I can't describe it more articulate than this: beautiful weirdness. Like you do not need to consume the mushrooms to space out. Just listening to the song is quite enough. Enjoy your trip!


Lyrics:

No more fear, it’s all said and done

Just watch as they fall, watch what we’ve begun


In the night, they watch as you sleep—

You opened the door, and they want you to keep


One small tear, watch as it falls.

Hung glass in the air, you care nothing at all


No more words, there’s nothing to prove.

Oh how could I choose? Oh what could I do?

What could I do…..

casting my eyes to ground
I find our morning shadows fading
dark clouds have gathered to shade our sun
we own our separate thoughts
both wrought with guilt

I love you
still
but my heart beats out of sync

let the rain pour down
I am now ready to drown

De zon voelt heerlijk warm aan op mijn bleke huid. Goed ingesmeerd met factor 50 en met een grote witte zonnehoed half over mijn gezicht en rode krullen, lig ik bijna volledig ontspannen op het strand samen met mijn beste vriendin Kirsten.
    Deze week vakantie is precies wat ik nodig heb volgens haar. Na het stuklopen van mijn relatie, alweer twee jaar geleden, had ik me volledig om mijn werk gestort. Ik liep de laatste maanden op mijn tandvlees en stond op het punt in te storten. Zonder mijn medeweten had ze deze trip naar Biarritz geboekt en verlof voor mij geregeld op mijn werk. Toen ze me vier dagen geleden vertelde dat we op vakantie zouden gaan, schoot ik in de stress. Alle mitsen en maren die ik uitsprak werden direct van tafel geveegd. Kirsten was resoluut, ik moest naast ontstressen, nodig ontTessen.
    Niet lang geleden had Kirsten nog gegrapt dat ik eens een goede beurt moest krijgen om me weer helemaal op de rails te krijgen.    “Aan mijn lijf geen polonaise, de …

Sigh: The last goodbye

The last goodbye - Billy Boyd 🎢



This is the song that concludes the trilogy of The Hobbit, filmed by Peter Jackson. To me it is even more than that. It is the perfect goodbye to both The Lord of the Rings as well as The Hobbit. What a magnificent journey the actors, producers and all others on the set have taken in participating in filming the mighty fantasy world created by Tolkien. It truly must have been a bit sad having to say goodbye to their characters, the world they were creating and to each-other. This was an epic undertaking and one I can imagine they will never forget.


Lyrics:

I saw the light fade from the sky
On the wind I hear a sigh
As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers
I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling
So end this day
The road is now calling
And I must away
Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud, beneath the stars
Over snow one winter's morn
I turn at last on paths that lea…
