Hello Good Friend

(Copying the whole lyrics thing off Carmaine here…)

I just ran into a few someones today
Someones that I never really knew
And I used to think how I had them all so figured out

But no, none of it’s true ‘cos I never knew you
And now the truth of it is, is I wanna be like you
So hello, good friend, I wanna be next to you
For my head, for my heart, for what’s true

So I’m burning the thoughts of the things that I once said
Because you tore down the walls that the world has put inside my head
And I just get sick of things that we think, we think we know

And no, none of it’s true ‘cos I never knew you
And now the truth of it is, is I wanna be like you
So hello, good friend, I wanna be next to you
For my head, for my heart, for what’s true

So take me and save me and change me and then make me
And embrace me and then brave my heart for you
No, No, ‘cos I can’t go on without you
And it’s time for something we never knew

And no, none of it’s true ‘cos I never knew you
and now the truth of it is, is I wanna be like you
So hello, good friend, I wanna be next to you
For my head, for my heart, for what’s true

And as they strolled along
My heart broke out in song
From all the things and the thoughts and assumptions that I had wrong
See now I’ll be on my way to make this claim
I’ll make it famous in everyway
I’ll make it stay when I will say that…

No, none of it’s true ‘cos I never knew you
And now the truth of it is, is I wanna be like you
So hello, good friend, I wanna be next to you
For my head for my heart for what’s true

Never Knew – The Rocket Summer

Rhyming rhyme with time…

I’m hitting a dry spell for blogging material. So I dredge up stuff from my files.

Okay, so this time, it’s something that some of you might’ve read already (and then forgotten, which is okay, because I’ve forgotten who I’ve shown).

I wrote an “emo song” earlier this year. There’s no music to it yet (I asked Ca- but she never got back…) so anyone who wants to, go ahead.

I won’t write another sad song
Because I didn’t shed a tear,
I won’t argue who was right or wrong
Or who was and wasn’t there.

I won’t say it was you
I won’t place any blame
But now I’m through
Playing this polite game

I’m letting you know…

I’m moving on
You were nothing to me, you meant nothing to me
I’m staying strong
Just so I can come back to show you that I’ve moved on.

You said you liked me,
Said you cared for me, and then you stab me
Right in the back
Infidelity, inconsistency, in an unforgiveable way.

Now I’m over you
I’m through with you, I’m fighting proof
Of a hating heart
A vengeful start, a bleeding shard, a world of gray.

And now you know…

I’m moving on
You were nothing to me, you meant nothing to me
You were wrong
And now I’ve come back to prove you that I’m moved on.

If hate is blinding, my world is black
If revenge is sweet, then my tooth is that
If lies are no longer white, then love is no longer war
If this is all there is, what is our heart fighting for?

I’m moving on
You were nothing to me, you meant nothing to me
You weren’t worth it
You weren’t worth the words you spoke (nothing to me)
You weren’t worth these words I wrote (nothing to me)
You weren’t worth the air you choke (I’ve come back to show you, to prove to you)
I’ve gone and moved on.

It occured to me…

Perhaps James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” was based on Romeo and Juliet. If uh, it has been proven somewhere already that this is the case then please ignore my ignorance but look at this:

“You’re Beautiful”

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
‘Cause I’ve got a plan.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high,
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

Now, for those who are woefully not so familiar with the concepts of Romeo and Juliet…here is an overview.

But for those who can’t be bothered, basically Romeo sees Juliet at a party and falls in love with her immediately. But they can’t be together because they are from rival families, but despite all of that they still fall deeper in love. After a few unfortunate incidents, fakes deaths and banishments, Romeo kills himself after believing that Juliet was dead (she wasn’t). After Romeo dies, Juliet wakes up from her fake death, and sees her beloved Romeo dead. She then kills herself as well. So everyone dies.

Now, relate that to Blunt’s lyrics.

Yes?
