QUOTE (Castlehigh @ Nov 16 2003, 11:45 AM)
Aaediwen & Roisin-Teagan can you find some subtle Celtic roots from the following beautiful song by U2?


Stuck In A Moment

I'm not afraid of anything in this world
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling - look at you
You gotta stand up straight - carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and now you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

I will not forsake the colours that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks - they left you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears - through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool to worry like you do
I know it's tough, and you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now - my, oh my

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
You've got yourself stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm till you discover how deep
I wasn't jumping - for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over, and if the day won't last
And if our way should falter along the stony pass
And if the night runs over, and if the day won't last
And if your way should falter along this stony pass
It's just a moment - this time will pass


_______________
(From the Album All That You Can't Leave Behind)


Cordially,

Castlehigh,

You won't believe me when I say that when I was a teen and a young adult U2 was my favorite band. I was heavily influenced by Bono's lyrics on his earlier records (when they made records---how old does that make me? tongue.gif). I can look back to some of my earlier writings and see his influence. I only realized this or just remembered this last month, as I was reading over some of my old poems. I still love listening to Bono's voice and the Edge's electric guitar. U2 has the most unique style which has transformed over the years but never lost it's core.

What do think of U2's song, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For from their album The Joshua Tree?

"I have scaled these city walls"

Castlehigh,

Thanks so much for the compliment---I needed it. wink.gif Anyway early thirties isn't old. Being old is a mind set, and somtimes I feel like I'm still in my early twenties.
I love the "Joshua Tree" album too. The descriptive language and symbolizim used in "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" is wonderful. Bono's words make you really think, think about life and who you are becoming on the journey.

Roisin-Teagan "on the journey" have you taken time to perhaps listen to some
fine words also from any of David Gray's songs?

What think you of such beautiful songs of his as 'This Year's Love' & 'Babylon'?

I'm baaaaaack!,

Nope, never heard his music before. I think I'll check it out soon. So what so special about David Gray?

Guys, I've been out of town for a while and dealing with remodling the house. Now I hope to get back on track with posting on the forums. Really missed you guys.

Yours,

Still working on a title for this.... might change a few lines or words... might add a bit to it too.... but I thought I would see what ye thought so far....



Through the rushes and down the glenn
Moving at furious pace
Shide dance
rousing the air like a summer storm
satytic whirlwind
bodies entwined

window burst open to find the child
when mother wakes up no little one be found

For she was taken to somewhere beneath the ground

Jason,

Very interesting---I like the scene you paint with all the action in motion. When you say 'somewhere beneath the ground' do you mean the wee one died? You have peaked my interest---come up with a title and continue it a bit.

Yours,

Roisin-Teagan,

I was wondering where you were. I had missed seeing your Posts.

Welcome back.

I wondered where you've been. Was planning on sending you a pm if I didn't see you about soon.
Hope the house is habitable. If not, dust yourself off and get on-line more. biggrin.gif

I literally dusted myself off Elspeth. We were having some dry-wall repairs and the dust went everywhere when the sanding process started. Now all we have left to do is paint. I just wanted to say thanks to both you and Richard for missing me. It's nice to have someone care. Maybe I'll catch you both tonight on the Chat.

Yours,

It just listens.
