A song for them...

Turned on my music - blue jazz list on a Thursday evening, home alone...
And this song was played - 


And it suddenly reminded of 2 friends that i have not seen and haven't being in contact much...

This song posted up here was dedicated to them - Pei li and Beh, 

It's because of them that i knew this wonderful wonderful song!!!

"Falling Slowly" is a song written and performed by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, as well as by Hansard's band, The Frames. It appeared in their 2007 film Once, from which it won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 80th Academy Awards. (from Wikipedia)

Here's the wonderful lyric...
I don't know you 
But I want you 
All the more for that 
Words fall through me 
And always fool me 
And I can't react 
And games that never amount 
To more than they're meant 
Will play themselves out 

Take this sinking boat and point it home 
We've still got time 
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice 
You've made it now 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/g/glen_hansard_ft_marketa_irglova/falling_slowly.html ]
Falling slowly, eyes that know me 
And I can't go back 
Moods that take me and erase me 
And I'm painted black 
You have suffered enough 
And warred with yourself 
It's time that you won 

Take this sinking boat and point it home 
We've still got time 
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice 
You've made it now 

Take this sinking boat and point it home 
We've still got time 
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice 
You've made it now 
Falling slowly sing your melody 
I'll sing along
