I Keep Trying To Find My Way

perfect memory.jpgJim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: LOST/FOUND/HIDE/SEEK

Music stirs memories…I think I meant to say that last week in my post about the song that is special to Jack and I. Well…this week I am going to share other memories…those that I dwelt on all summer after my wonderful trip to Australia.

As soon as I saw today’s theme, I thought of a hundred songs!!! Don’t worry, I am not going to post one hundred songs, although I do have a second song in mind that I might publish later, depending on whether anyone else features it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABut to start my Sunday on a wonderful note, I have chosen, not the first song I thought of, not my favourite song, but a song that has a memory that I want to share with you today. One of my favourite memories in fact from my trip to Australia this past summer (Australia’s winter).

I think I mentioned that when I was in Australia, I would look through the CDs that Goldfinch has – he has a lot of music! – and when he asked me what I liked the look of I would reply “oh I am still looking for your Kylie Minogue CDs”. And he would give me that cute look…you know the “am I going to have to put you over my knee?” look!!! I’ll stop there!

dgAnyway, one day, he came home with a new CD, which he said he picked out thinking of me. He loaded the disc into his stereo and took my hands to dance with me – aaaaah sigh! We did dance quite a lot together while I was out there. Such wonderful happy memories.

As soon as he started to play the music, the voice seemed familiar, although I did not know the first track. It was “Innocent Eyes”, an album from Delta Goodrem. I confess I did not know anything about her. But Goldfinch duly informed me that she is Australian. I looked at the songs on the back and immediately saw that Track Number 5 “Lost Without You” was a song I had listened to over and over after Goldfinch left England to return to Australia. The lyrics so perfectly expressed just how I felt trying to live life without Goldfinch. Aaaaaah sigh!

When looking for a video…I found a full-length American version which sounds quite different from the one that was in the charts here in the UK. The top video is a short section of the song the way I am used to hearing it. But the American version is almost as good.

 

I know I can be a little stubborn sometimes
You might say a little righteous and too proud
I just want to find a way to compromise
Cos I believe that we can work things out

I thought I had all the answers never giving in
But baby since you’ve gone I admit that I was wrong

All I know is I’m lost without you I’m not gonna lie
How am I going to be strong without you I need you by my side
If we ever say we’ll never be together and we ended with goodbye don’t know what I’d do …I’m
lost without you
I keep trying to find my way but all I know is I’m lost without you
I keep trying to face the day I’m lost without you

How am I ever gonna get rid of these blues
Baby I’m so lonely all the time
Everywhere I go I get so confused
You’re the only thing that’s on my mind

Oh my beds so cold at night and I miss you more each day
Only you can make it right no I’m not too proud to say

All I know is I’m lost without you I’m not gonna lie
How am I going to be strong without you I need you by my side
If we ever say we’ll never be together and we ended with goodbye don’t know what I’d do …I’m
lost without you
I keep trying to find my way but all I know is I’m lost without you
I keep trying to face the day I’m lost without you

If I could only hold you now and make the pain just go away
Can’t stop the tears from running down my face
Oh

All I know is I’m lost without you I’m not gonna lie
How am I going to be strong without you I need you by my side
If we ever say we’ll never be together and we ended with goodbye don’t know what I’d do …I’m
lost without you
I keep trying to find my way but all I know is I’m lost without you
I keep trying to face the day I’m lost without you
