Alanis Morissette – Empathy

There are so many parts that I have hidden and denied and lost
There are so many ways that I have cut off my nose to spite my face

There are so many colors that I still try to hide while I paint
And there are so many tunes that I secretly sing as I wait

You come along and invite these parts out of hiding
This invitation is the one that I’ve stopped fighting….

Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for getting me
I’m healed by your empathy
Oh this intimacy

There were so many times, I thought I’d die not being truly known
There’ve been so many moments: forever lonely in my vocation

You come along and celebrate each feeling
And there you are all honor and inquiring…….

Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for getting me
I’m healed by your empathy
Oh this intimacy

There was a day where the trust that was being asked of me
Required too much you see
To accept your generosity
And to know myself enough to let you help me

Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for getting me
I’m healed by your empathy
Oh this intimacy


Here’s to stopping the hate and/or indifference towards all living beings.

Peace, black coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘

Gabriella Cilmi – Sanctuary

That old pair of jeans
You always see me wearing when it’s grey
You know what I mean
I’m riding a lazy mood

Cause you’ve been waiting got me ready to go
And I’ve been straying off the way that I know, keep me
Wise enough, nothing to owe
Guess I need ya and I want it to show

Lying here in my sanctuary
Days go past it’s autumn already
And I wish it would thunder
Lying here in my sanctuary
Days go past it’s autumn already
And I sit here and wonder

And I’ll kick off my shoes
Think about the things I’d like to do
Everything going smooth
There ain’t nothing I’d rather do

Cause you’ve been waiting got me ready to go
And I’ve been straying off the way that I know, keep me
Wise enough, nothing to owe
Guess I need ya and I want it to show

Lying here in my sanctuary
Days go past it’s autumn already
And I wish it would thunder
Lying here in my sanctuary
Days go past it’s autumn already
And I sit here and wonder

What I say and what I mean, are two very different things
Can’t tell life from lies got a bad sense of spins
What I say and what I mean are two very different things, babe, it’s time to figure it out

Holding my hands in your hand and I won’t let go
Keeping your words and your face is a place like home
I’ve been blind don’t you know


Peace, black coffee, and a cheesecake.  ☘

Rag’n’Bone Man – As You Are

You raised the lights when it was frightening
You calmed the storm when it was rising
You found me there where I was hiding
All I have is here and now

If the ground beneath our feet has disappeared
I’ll be here beside you, always be right near you
Remember me, won’t you?

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are

When I was reaching out in the dark
When the streets below just looked so far
When I forgot everything that I was
All I needed was your love

If the earth beneath our feet is old and caves in
For a second we will fight, when it’s late in the evening
Don’t let me go, dear

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are

Take you as you are, as you are
Take you as you are, as you are
Take you as you are, as you are
As you are

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise (I promise)
I promise to take you, take you as you are

I know we’ve all got our problems
And it’s a blessing that we made it here so far
If you lay here in these arms tonight I promise
I promise to take you, take you as you are

Al Stewart – Time Passages

It was late in December, the sky turned to snow
All round the day was going down slow
Night like a river beginning to flow
I felt the beat of my mind go
Drifting into time passages
Years go falling in the fading light
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Well I’m not the kind to live in the past
The years run too short and the days too fast
The things you lean on are the things that don’t last
Well it’s just now and then my line gets cast into these
Time passages
There’s something back here that you left behind
Oh time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting to turn
Don’t know why you should feel
That there’s something to learn
It’s just a game that you play

Well the picture is changing
Now you’re part of a crowd
They’re laughing at something
And the music’s loud
A girl comes towards you
You once used to know
You reach out your hand
But you’re all alone, in these
Time passages
I know you’re in there, you’re just out of sight
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

The Corrs – Toss the Feathers

Dear friends and readers,

This time I share this beautiful instrumental with you. The first time I saw and heard someone playing the Bhódran – I fell in love with this instrument. One day in the near future, a Bhódran will hopefully come my way. As udemy.com offers online trainings – I am rather confident that it is going to work out.  😉
