Fresh Horses - Words for Eden

Over at Edenland there is a new linky up and running (not new,new, but her new one for this week). The question or theme: Words. You are at a party, step up to the open mic. What would you choose, to read out at this fictional party?


Edenland's Fresh Horses Brigade

For me this is the one. It is the song that makes me cry, it is the song I sing to my boys when they are troubled, it is the way I feel about motherhood as my heart bursts with the love I have for my children.

Sometime, someday, somewhere... they will "Crash and Burn". And on that day I will be there, I wil catch them and hold them tight within my arms and heart until those bruises heal and their souls are complete and strong once more.

Crash & Burn
~Savage Garden~

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can't take anymore
 
Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can't face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

'Cause there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breath again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone




Never, never alone whilst I have one last breath within this body.

Loving all the music links on this Fresh Horses Brigade link.

We are never alone. It's hard to reach out sometimes, but there is someone there. I love this message.

My late mother loved Savage Garden. She used to go to their concerts. We played I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You at her funeral.
My favorite SG song is The Animal Song.

Just beautiful, Tanya....and how I feel every minute about my boy, who turned 21 yesterday. Love him more every day.

Beautiful words. The words of songs sometimes say absolutely everything we can't.

I never noticed these lyrics before - fabulous! Yes, I can see how they are perfect for describing heartbursting love for your kids. Beautiful. x

Oh wow ... just beautiful! And I get that, so so much. Last week I looked at Max and I said, mate ... one day, a girl is going to break your heart. Just know this ... you will be ok.

He just said "sure" and kept colouring in.

Thank you for linking up XXXX
