Slow Down World

Slow Down World
Lyrics from Slow Down World by Donovan

Slow down world
Major problem ahead,
You have been on the go
For a long, long time I know
Take a rest from the race
Why chase it ?

And Then One Day It Happened
She Cut Her Hair
And I Stopped Loving Her

Tears And Rain

Prompt todaay from HSMSHS is Rain



Lyrics from Tears And Rain by James Blunt

I guess it's time I run far, far away, find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
Hides my true shape, like Dorian Gray.
I've heard what they say, but I'm not here for trouble.
It's more than just words: it's just tears and rain

Sorry To A Friend

Sorry To A Friend

Crack in a little voice that calls out my name
Whatever happened to you
It's been two years
Where have you been
And I guess all my fears were true
The words were all gone the time's been too long
But It's not too late to say
I'm sorry to a friend

Father And Son

Father And  Son

I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy,
To be calm when youve found something going on
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything youve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not

Written By An Italian Poet

Prompt today from HSMSHS is Italian
Originating in Italy, show us something 'Italian' in your space

Lyrics from Tangled Up In Blue by Bob Dylan

She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe
I thought youd never say hello, she said
You look like the silent type
Then she opened up a book of poems
And handed it to me
Written by an italian poet
From the thirteenth century
And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burnin coal
Pourin off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you,
Tangled up in blue.

I'm Too Knackered To Walk To The Well !!!

This is the comment Gail Porter made this morning in relation to the illness ME. She was a guest panelist on The Wright Stuff and remarked

People in Africa don't have ME, you don't hear them saying I am too knackered to walk to the well

I guess she thinks it's funny. I wonder if she thought it funny when she was disbelieved regarding her health condition ?
Its a old "joke" of Ricky Gervais, not funny when he says it and not funny by celebs who copy him. Let them come and walk a day in my shoes..... it would be interesting too see if they would continue to comment on conditions they obviously are ignorant off...all in the name of comedy!!!

I sent a e-mail........lets see if I get a reply

You'd think that I could muster up a little soft shoe gentle sway
But I don't feel like dancin' no sir no dancin' today

Today's prompt from HSMSHS is Broken

In a state of disrepair or malfunction. Find broken in your space today.

Didn't have to go far for this one. Right outside my house, the builders next door ( who have made my life a misery for over a year ) seem to have malfunctioning machinery today and I will admit that it was taken with a little smile on my face !

Lyrics from Boulevard Of Broken Dreams by Green Day
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone
