So Much to Say

I’m back to feeling like I have so much I want to get off my chest. I think the Dave Matthews Band expresses my thoughts pretty well for the most part. Thanks Dave!

So Much To Say Lyrics

I say my hell is the closet I’m stuck inside
can’t see the light
and my heaven is a nice house in the sky
I got central heating and I’m alright
yeah yeah yeah can’t see the light
keep it locked up inside don’t talk about it
t-t-talk about the weather
yeah yeah yeah
open up my head and let me out little baby
‘Cos here we have been standing for a long long time
can’t see the light
treading trodden trails for a long long time,
time, time, time, time, time, time

I find sometimes it’s easy to be myself
sometimes I find it’s better to be somebody else

I see you young and soft oh little baby
little feet, little feet, little hands little baby
one year of crying and the words creep up inside
creep into your mind yeah
so much to say, so much to say, so much to say, so much to say
so much to say, so much to say, so much to say, so much to say
‘Cos here we have been standing for a long long time
can’t see the light
treading trodden trails for a long long time………..

I find sometimes it’s easy to be myself
sometimes I find it’s better to be somebody else

so much to say, so much to say, so much to say, so much to say ohh
so much to say, so much to say, so much to say, so much to say
little baby ahh
so much to say, so much to say, so much to say, so much to say
little feet little hands little baby
so much to say, so much to say, so much to say, so much to say

open up my head and let me out little baby

*EDIT* Okay, so maybe just the first verse….

A new young voice to hear

OdysseyHave you heard of or from Hayley Westenra yet? You need to before she gets much older. Her voice is so pure and the music she sings is quite inspiring. I found her song “Never Saw Blue” on this week’s Free Downloads on iTunes. The lyrics and voice just balance so beautifully. Take a listen and let me know what you think.

While My Guitar Gently Sleeps

You guys have to check this out. This is a Hawaiian ukulele player that is playing much more than the traditional Hawaiian ukulele music. In this clip, generously streamed for me by my buddy Tom, Jake Shimabukuro plays a wicked rendition of While My Guitar Gently Sleeps. Being a big Beatles fan, I was skeptical at first (I’ve never been a fan of remakes) but once I listened to it, I can really tell he appreciate what the Beatles were doing with their song and honors that in his arrangement. So, press play and enjoy!

Thanks again Tom for sharing this with me. More music reviews to come!
