Could it be a hymn for life?

Take the time to make some sense
Of what you want to say
And cast your words away upon the waves
Bring them back with Acquiesce
On a ship of hope today
And as they fall upon the shore
Tell them not to fear no more
Say it loud and sing it proud
And they…

Will dance if they want to dance
Please brother take a chance
You know they’re gonna go
Which way they want to go
All we know is that we don’t know
What is gonna be
Please brother let it be
Life on the other hand won’t let you understand
Why we’re all part of the masterplan

I’m not saying right is wrong
It’s up to us to make
The best of all things that come our way
And all the things that came have past
The answer’s in the looking glass
There’s four and twenty million doors
Down life’s endless corridor
Say it loud and sing it proud
And they…

Will dance if they want to dance
Please brother take a chance
You know they’re gonna go
Which way they want to go
All we know is that we don’t know
What is gonna be
Please brother let it be
Life on the other hand won’t let you understand
Why we’re all part of the masterplan

Today I am going to do something different. Above is one of my favourite tracks. It happens to by Oasis. I like Oasis though not a huge amount like one of my sons! Yet I have to admit that they, the Gallagher brothers, are extremely talented in the lyrics and music department.

I love lyrics, words being my first love. I first heard this song when one of  my sons was visiting and the words came out of his room and grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and hauled me upstairs to the source. We spent an afternoon listening to different songs all of which had wonderful lyrics. I found out that afternoon that my son also likes lyrics.

Shortly afterwards I found the above video on youtube  and fell in love with it too!! The wonderful idealised Manchester in the style almost of  L.S. Lowry .

The Gallagher brothers , Noel and Liam when not arguing are very fond of the music of the Beatles a fact many of their songs reflect . Oasis openly admit to being influenced by the Beatles. If you listen to the words of this song you can hear many references to Beatles music and titles and in the video there are many more. I shall leave it to you to spot them, it will be more fun that way!!

When I get low and life seems to close in on me the words “The answer’s in the looking glass There’s four and twenty million doors down life’s endless corridor so say it loud and sing it proud And they… Will dance if they want to dance”   really say to me, the answer is with you , there are so many chances to take ..take one and dance. That helps me it really does.

So there you have it , me not talking in rhyme….. well not all the time.  No seriously  do give it a chance I know they have a tarnished name but they are talented and are as good unplugged and live as they are are fresh from a tip top recording studio. I hope you find something uplifting in the lyrics I do , it is almost like a hymn to life.

So to all of you out there be well, be happy, live life and may inspiration for your blogs keep a coming!! xxxx
