Of Something Borrowed..


We are a sum of what we borrow from people as we go by… picking pieces, habits, character traits without even realizing it. It just struck me how I am thankful to a few people for lending me their songs to listen to. I don’t mean songs they have made, but songs they listen to, aren’t they in a way theirs too? Like they become mine once I begin listening to them.

I was just listening to Lianne La Havas and then thought about how Candyflip Sundae introduced me to this lovely artist, I liked their cover better than the original when I saw them perform live for the first time. This one is a different cover though.

The lyrics read like poetry..

“Don’t wake me up
I am
Trying to find you
Oh, as I walk through
You’re hiding in my corners of my mind

Never fear, I’ll be close behind
My only love, I’ll follow behind you
Won’t go without you

I know your love weighs
Heavy on my heart
But you are my only counterpart

Will, I know
Why I lost control
Of my heart and soul
Because I know you
I can reach through

I made mistakes
But they’re safely behind me
Now I can run free
The only true love I have ever known

Into yours, my life has been thrown
Still, I only think so
It’s just the beginning
Sing when you’re willing

They say some things
Are better left unsaid
But I’d take my life
To stay in your bed”
