It Keeps Me Warm As Life Grows Colder

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: COOL/FREEZE/HEAT/MELT

sduirhtwThis is a really hard time for me. I decided weeks ago that I would have to skip today. Yeah, just skip it completely. I am going to sleep in for as long as I can. Then I am going to wake up, shower, dress, lace up my hiking boots and go walking. I don’t want to do anything else today. Not only was my flight to Australia (which should have been this weekend) cancelled, but it is also five years since an event that is still a marker in my life. I just gotta take a little time, a little time to think things over.

I could say a lot about how the memories of that night freeze my heart. I could say a lot about how the flashbacks I have had heat my blood to boiling. I could say a lot about how Goldfinch knew just how to melt my frosty exterior. I could say a lot about the peace I regained with Jack was refreshing a cool. I could say a lot about the heat of passion that followed.

But instead…while I go for my walk…I will leave you a song which is just as dramatic as what is going on inside me at the moment. Foreigner, “I Wanna Know Love Is“.

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
Through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
I can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let’s talk about love
I wanna know what love is, the love that you feel inside
I want you to show me, and I’m feeling so much love
I wanna feel what love is, no, you just cannot hide
I know you can show me, yeah

I wanna know what love is, let’s talk about love
I want you to show me, I wanna feel it too
I wanna feel what love is, I want to feel it too
And I know and I know, I know you can show me
Show me love is real, yeah
I wanna know what love is…

    1. I think I need more walks. It looks as if I will finally be able to reduce my hours because people are coming out of furlough. I need to be out walking and allowing my mind to settle and my heart to revive.
      Jack and I have plans for cooking/baking and walking over the next few days….if he ever returns from his quest to find fresh chillies.
