NIGHT MUSIC FOR WHEN THE NIGHT TAKES A DEEP BREATH

I want to send a song out to a U2 friend who is feeling a little blue these days...Like when the night takes a deep breath, and the daylight has no air...it is during these times that we need some music for the dark night of the soul...some night music for you.

NIGHT MUSIC/SIMPLE MINDS
GOOD NEWS FROM THE NEXT WORLD

Can you hear the lone night music
Coming in so near
When I hear the lone night music
Every nightmare crumbles and they disappear
Can you hear the echoes calling
Speaking in verse
When I hear the lone night music
Everything gets stronger
and I lose this curse

Help me break the chains that hold me
Keeping me from the truth
I want to feel the hands that raise me
From a low down level to the highest roof.
Woh oh, night music
I hear it now
Night music

I want to catch the rock that's falling
Roll it back up hill
When I hear the strange night music
The whole world's turning and
I'm standing still
I feel it growing deep inside me
Still I'm at a loss
When I hear the strange night music
It's a warning signal there's
a bridge to cross

Good news from the next world
Tear yourself apart
X still marks the time and place
To cure your bitter heart
Feel like running water
Water of the soul
Spinning like a spinning wheel
Way beyond control

Can you hear the lone night music
Coming in so far
When I hear the lone night music
It's a lonely planet, it's a burning star
I want to swim the widest ocean
Diving in so deep
When I hear the lone night music
I can get so blue that I just can't sleep
Sing to me oh night music
Coming in so near
When I hear the lone night music
All my nightmares crumble
And they disappear


Well it's too late, tonight, to drag the past out into the light...we're one, but we're not the same, we get to carry each other, carry each other...One. I love you friend, and I'm here for you.

Chris

I'm in a similar mood tonight, so i have this to offer:


Nightswimming

(Berry/Buck/Mills/Stipe)

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night
The photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago,
Turned around backwards so the windshield shows
Every streetlight reveals the picture in reverse
Still, it's so much clearer
I forgot my shirt at the water's edge
The moon is low tonight

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night
I'm not sure all these people understand
It's not like years ago,
The fear of getting caught,
Of recklessness and water
They cannot see me naked
These things, they go away,
Replaced by everyday

Nightswimming, remembering that night
September's coming soon
I'm pining for the moon
And what if there were two
Side by side in orbit
Around the fairest sun?
That bright, tight forever drum
Could not describe nightswimming

You, I thought I knew you
You, I cannot judge
You, I thought you knew me,
This one laughing quietly underneath my breath
Nightswimming

The photograph reflects,
Every streetlight a reminder
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night, deserves a quiet night



------------------
when i first met you girl, you had fire in your soul.
what happened your face of melting snow?

The second is R.E.M. isn't the first one Simple Minds as it says on top?

For Chris,

What I would do without you? Obrigada, muito obrigada, Ill keep your offer amigo. Don't worry, some days are better than others...now where have I heard that one?

I woke up this morning with these verses from Always in mind...

Be the arrow
And the target
Put your head over the parapet
Be uncool
Yes, be awkward
And don't look in the obvious place
The soul needs beauty for a soul mate


Somehow they have a strong meaning, like a picture of myself these days.

For grace,

Nightswimming is a pearl.

And last but not least, for The_Sweetest_Thing,
spanisheyes is a he

OOps! (If you could only see my red face)! I'm sooooo sorry spanisheyes! (I think I just assumed, because I though U2 had written the song for a girl...and..) Oh. I'm sorry.

Hey Scatteroflight...It is great to see another fan of the Simple Mind's "Good News From the Next World"...and I would have to agree with you that the whole album really rocks...and that the lyrics and music are brilliant. Is there any other albums of theirs you listen to and like?

I have several of them, I don't listen to them a lot though. Sparkle in the Rain is great, the greatest hits is a good overview, and I have to admit I like Neapolis (which tanked) much more than Zooropa or Pop! Street Fighting Years has some amazing songs too.

GNFTNW was actually the first record I bought by them. I fell in love with She's a River--largely because it sounded like old U2 to me...later I discovered that there were a lot of differences between them and U2, but I still like the resemblances too...

Isn't it funny how you stumble onto a thread like this exactly when you need to read it?

Thanks guys,
