Lyrics

I've always had a fascination with song lyrics....unless you are the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, most songs have some form of meaning...except those crappy Michael Bolton "How am I suppossed to live without you" ones. But who cares on them anyway....

So I look for the meaning in songs, to learn some more about what the writer was trying to get over at that time...its often an insight into a writers mindset at the time and sometimes a chance to reflect on our own lives....

Here below is my current personal favourite....Feel by Robbie Williams...not only a great song, but regarded as maybe his best lyric...Guy Chambers was initially scared by the lyrics because he viewed it as very very deep. Read them and you get a sense of where he was in life when he wrote it....

I heard the song, and figured there was something in it for me....then I read the lyrics and realised that perhaps this describes my innermost workings better than anything I could ever say or write. I dont get to this point very often, perhaps more often than I care to admit, but this song allows me to reflect on it and perhaps describe to others how I truly feel...

Anyway, for your entertainment.....

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given
I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don't understand

I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste

I don't wanna die
But I ain't keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I'm preparing to leave her
Scare myself to death
That's why I keep on running
Before I've arrived
I can see myself coming

I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel
Real love and the love ever after
I can not get enough

I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
I got too much love
Running through my veins
To go to wasteI just wanna feel
Real love and the love ever after
There's a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It's a real big place

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
