life goes easy on me..most of the time
Yesterday I got an email from The Mohegan Sun offering me two Comp. tickets to Monday's Fiona Apple Damien Rice show. I first heard of Damien when he joined Tori Amos on a track off her latest (The Beekeeper ) called The Power of Orange Knickers. Then very recently my elder son (whom I was until very recently estranged from) asked me to watch a Jude Law/Julia Roberts film called Closer, which he loves. Damien performs the opening song.. which is so incredibly beautiful it gives me goose bumps...

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind...
My mind...my mind...
'Til I find somebody new

I am so exited that we get to see an artist we both love (which is a first as his interests have been primarily Big Band, Musicals, Opera and the whole Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra era)..

i.can't.wait

Blogger kept freezing on me this morning, I would type a letter, it would freeze, then let me type another, then freeze. I rebooted and the same thing. 45 minutes later, and 20 minutes LATE for work I had to give up. I am posting this from work and well really can't concentrate with everything going on around me...ugh.

Well I did have time to take an HNT pic while the PC was rebooting, wearing the sweet Bobby Fletcher shirt I snagged a while back off Ebay. So here it is :)

You are going to be absolutely blown away by Damien Rice! I went to a concert here thinking it was going to be like what he sounds like on his album but...my mind was absolutely blown! Now I'm jealous heheh.

I'll talk to you this weekend!

Blogger Doghigh said...
HEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO GLAD to see you!! You've no idea! I've missed you and am very happy to see you here :-) Thanks for leaving me the comment babe. Talk to you soon. Have fun in URI country...

Blogger Doghigh said...
Oh and I almost accepted the acceptance from Salve Regina as well...only because of location. That probably would not have been a good idea for me... :-)

I'm with you about Damien Rice... I LOVE his record, and Closer is one of my all time faborite movies...

But regarding the song, it's all about that VERY last line... Before I read the lyrics (and before I heard him whisper that last line), I thought it was such a beautiful love/stalker song... but then that last line. Damn, what a clincher.

Blogger ScorpioLee said...
Can't say enough about the raw emotion and passion of that song...a truly great artist. Good on ya!

Blogger El G├╝ero said...
Blogger gets the hiccups sometimes.

I'm glad to hear you're no longer estranged from your son(s).

Blogger PJS said...
This song, and that movie, absolutely kill me. just devastating... and i can't stop listening to the song.
