What You Want

There are songs. Some lift the spirit, some soothe the nerves. Some are just nice to listen to. And then there are songs. They make you think. I found one today - What You Want by John Butler Trio.

And it made me think...what does one want at the end of the day -

To see a face
And wish for a smile...
To hear a voice
And let it linger awhile...
To ask some questions
And answer a few...
To revisit memories
And to create some anew...
To care and pamper
And spoil to the core...
To do routine small things
And yet not make them look like a chore...
To smile at all times
And have it be the energy...
To be the pillar of strength
A lighthouse in rough sea.

Here's how the song goes...I love the beat of this one...and I love the part when the song goes quiet in the middle and just the guitar is playing:
What you wanna say,
Wait until you get home.
I'm sick of communicating now over the telephone.
Tell me how you feel,
For I am lonely too
Need you to know
I'm just as cold and numb as you.

But I could fly away,
Or I could be no one.
And you could be the
Sunshine falling over the mountain

You could come to stay
Yes you could come right home
I don't see why I have to
Live this life all alone.

I know there is a way to make up for mistakes
I know what's happening is for a reason.

I love this one : ) ...
