wildflower song

This is an old Greek song with haunting lyrics full of melancholy and hurt pride - pathos, pathos, pathos, the stuff that reminds us of how small we really are and how much we need each other.

To paraphrase the words:

Don't pity me, send me away tonight
As if I'm a wildflower, cut me and my life

I've been around, I travel alone
My home is the road, and pain is my song

Send me away without pity, don't fear for my own
If it should snow or if it rains, this wildflower will go on.

I always get choked up listening to this song, and it's one of those songs that have been crafted in such a way that at the most poignant moment you must sing loudly to the heavens - and I haven't been able to without getting emotional.

I wish I could put it on the blog for you to listen to - maybe one day...

Lovey, C

"She’s faced the hardest times you could imagine.
And many times her eyes fought back the tears.
And when her youthful world was about to fall in
Each time her slender shoulders,
Bore the weight of all her fears.
And the sorrow no one hears,
Still rings in midnight silence
In her ears...

Let her cry, for she’s a lady
Let her dream, for she’s a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She’s a free and gentle flower, growing wild"

Ek eleeeh - Colour Me Badd, not so macho is it? Etcherly quite senty mental, izzen it? Sniff, sniff.

Don't worry Anne, I myself am an avid supporter of Take That - New Kids On The Block can kiss my mountainside!

And this was Take That before everyone realised Gary Barlow was a little bit, you know, boring.

However I can believe that you would get a little teary listening to CMB's song (bottom lip quivering)

Lovey, C
