Lyrics of the Week

Section of old website reinstated – to grow once more!

When I’m often listening to my extensive CD collection which I have built up through the years from high-street outlets (of course), I often come across lyrics I deem to be ‘interesting’. These become especially more so when your take them out of context :) Now, I used to just whack these into my MSN name but I’m aiming to keep my MSN name as ‘Matthew’ for a whole year, so that’s out of the question. So next best thing – me webpage :) Not promising they’ll be funny, maybe they’re here cos I like them, or I think they summarise a message or feeling or mood… Hell, just read them if you want :)

My cry of pain
Won’t ease my longing heart

I miss you mam
I miss you dad

Now when I look out my window
Through a winter’s evening rain
I see the same sky
You see at home
Somehow it’s not the same

Yes, and I’m longing to get home
How I miss all your loving smiles
Oh how the winter bites
When you’re so far away
For so long
For far too long

Is my girl still there
Does she visit you
Is she still as pretty as ever?

Does she ask for me?
‘Cos I long for her
I need her more than ever

Tell her it won’t be long
Until I’m home to stay
I won’t ever go again
By her side I’ll always stay

Yes, and I’m longing to get home
How I miss all your loving smiles
And oh how the winter bites
When you’re so far away
For so long

Yes oh how the winter bites
When you’re so far away
For so long
For far too long”
