Poetry Thursday ~ Music


my hubs, canon digital rebel xt

Carsten and I saw Ray Lamontagne in concert last year. We had not heard of him before, so we didn't know what to expect. What we received that night was magic. He was genuine, he was passion, he was intoxicating, he was soulful.

This particular song struck both of us that night. When I listen to it now, it reminds me of this journey we've been through together of trying to conceive a child. During the days that I get confused or down, rather than try to make sense of it, he reminds me of our love, his commitment to me and that we are in this together, not alone. "If we keep our hearts together...". So yes, as the song says...our friendship is forever strengthened.

Forever My Friend
by
Ray Lamontagne

Who am I to tell her
Who am I to play God
Who am I to think I can go it alone
Something tells me girl this is bringing you down
Something tells me this is bringing me down
We've been through some changes
Always seem to hold on
Lately it feels like you can't take anymore
Something tells me girl this is bringing you down
Something tells me girl this is bringing me down
Forever my friend
Forever my love
Forever the woman that I'm thinking of
I just think if we keep our hearts together
I just think if we build on this trust that we have for one another
Baby we can make this last a lifetime
Who am I to tell her
Who am I to play God
I don't know just what's for real anymore
Something tells me girl this is bringing you down
Something tells me girl this is bringing me down
Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I'm right
Maybe it's the last thing you want to hear me say
I just think if we keep out hearts together
I just think if we build on this trust that we have for one another
Baby we can make this last a lifetime
Forever my friend
Forever my love
Forever the woman that I'm thinking of
I just think if we keep our hearts together
I just think if we will build on this trust that we have for one another
Baby we can make this last a lifetime

Can you tell me how to uploaded an mp3 file onto Blogger. I have been dying to find out. A friend of mine sent me a Ray Lamontagne CD last year and I couldn't get into it, maybe i will give it another try. Do you listen to Iron and Wine? If not check him out. He sounds rigt up your alley.

This song reminds me of U2's "Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own", although Bono wrote that one for his dad... Thanks for introducing me to Ray L...
