Every once in a while....

...there comes a song that makes you sit upright and pay attention. It catches your ear, makes you stop what you're doing and invokes some sort of emotion, be it nostalgia, happiness, sadness or just heightened sensitivity. It's the kinda song that speaks directly to your soul! I'm very lyrically orientated when it comes to music, i appreciate the heartfelt sincerity of artists like John Mayer, Corrinne Bailey Rae, Erykah Badu, Lifehouse but to name a few. Their words are like lyrical poetry to me. I'm happy to add another member to my musical repetoire Joseph Arthur...his song, "In the Sun" made me "sit upright and pay attention", i now want to own everything by him.


I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you

I know i would apologize if i could see your eyes
'Cause when you showed me myself i became someone else
But i was caught in between all you wish for and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
A nightmare comes
You can't keep awake

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you

'Cause if i find
If i find my own way
How much will i find
If i find
If i find my own way
How much will i find
You

I don't know anymore
What it's for
I'm not even sure
If there is anyone who is in the sun
Will you help me to understand
'Cause i been caught in between all I wish for and all I need
Maybe you're not even sure what it's for
Any more than me

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you

* Star, i know you'll love this song!
