My choice for today is:

Comfortably Numb

Pink Floyd


Hello?

Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?
Come on now
I hear you’re feeling down
Well I can ease the pain
And get you on your feet again
Relax
I’ll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

I have become comfortably numb

Okay
Just a little pinprick
There’ll be no more
But you may feel a little sick
Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working, good
That’ll keep you going through the show
Come on it’s time to go

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb

Memories

Maroon 5


Here’s to the ones that we got
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you’re not
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we’ve been through
Toast to the ones here today
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

There’s a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain
When I believed in forever, it would stay the same
Now my heart feel like December when somebody say your name
‘Cause I can’t reach out to call you, but I know I will one day, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody hurts someday, aye aye
Everything gon’ be alright
Go and raise a glass and say,

Here’s to the ones that we got
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you’re not
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we’ve been through
Toast to the ones here today
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo
Memories bring back, memories bring back you

There’s a time that I remember when I never felt so lost
When I felt all of the hatred was too powerful to stop
My heart feel like an ember and it’s lighting up the dark
I’ll carry these torches for ya that you know I’ll never drop, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody hurts someday, aye aye
Everything gon’ be alright
Go and raise a glass and say,

Here’s to the ones that we got (oh oh)
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you’re not
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we’ve been through
Toast to the ones here today
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo
Memories bring back, memories bring back you

Doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo
Memories bring back, memories bring back you

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
Memories bring back, memories bring back you

Wednesday Words

Wednesday words

 

My word today is…

Incunabulum

Plural: incunabula

An incunabulum is a book printed during the earliest period of typography -before the year 1501.

1501 marks the end of the ‘infancy of printing’, as it then rapidly spread across Europe and into America.

Incunabulum derives from the Latin word incunabula, meaning swaddling clothes. Incunabula, itself comes from the Latin for cradle, cunae, which can refer to ‘the earliest stages in the development of anything.’

The Flame

Cheap Trick


Another night slowly closes in
And I feel so lonely
Touching heat freezing on my skin
I pretend you still hold me
I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
I can’t believe you’re gone
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Watching shadows move across the wall
I feel so frightened
I wanna run to you, I wanna call
But I’ve been hit by lightning
Just can’t stand up for fallin’ apart
Can’t see through this veil across my heart, over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon.
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Wherever you go, I’ll be with you

I Quit…

Smoking!

No Smoking Sign vector

I haven’t smoked a cigarette for 5 days.

I smoked my last one Monday evening, before I went to bed.

It hasn’t been easy, but as I said in my plans for 2020, I am determined to succeed, and, so far, my will-power hasn’t let me down.

Keeping busy has helped, so I started my spring cleaning early! My bathroom is spotless, as is my kitchen, including the oven, the fridge-freezer, the insides of the cupboards… etc.

I’ve also cut down on the amount of coffee I drink, because having a break and sitting down with a cuppa, is one of the times I really miss having that cigarette.

I hope your plans for 2020 are going well. I’ve made a start on mine, fingers crossed I can keep it up.

I’ll keep you up to date, but now I’m off to spring clean my living room and ignore that part of me that wants a cigarette!

January Pics

I posted some pictures yesterday on Wordless Wednesday, which I took during the walk from my parents’ house to mine. I thought it might be good to see how these same views change over the year, as it’s a walk I do often.

So, along with the view of the garden (as seen from my window), I will be posting the same scenes at least every couple of months.
