Helpless Dancer

The Endless Note

Let Battle Commence

I have decided that during the troubled times ahead as Mrs Dancer fights the most dreaded of illnesses the occasional post may be of benefit.

I will start with one of Mrs D’s favourite songs “The Actor” from Ray Wilson’s solo album “The Next Best Thing”

The lyrics of the song may not fully represent our current feelings and emotions but it is safe to say that in public for the time being we are “actors”.

Music is a big part of life for both of us but at present she is having difficulty facing up to listening to it……the whole world at present is surreal and waking up in the morning is the worst part as for a flickering of a second there is comfort and then the reality kicks back in.

Ray Wilson - The Next Best Thing

 

 

I smile at the misplaced face
Trying to convince myself
All the answers lie with me

I look at my broken picture
Find it so hard to believe
As now the past comes back to haunt me

It’s alright I’m alright, I just need to believe
I’m not afraid anymore, I will feel my way back
Lay your hands on me

Wish I hadn’t been so vain
Been and gone and thrown away
Regrets I keep, the blame I give to me

It’s alright I’m alright, I just need to believe
I’m not afraid anymore, I will feel my way back
Lay your hands on me

Here’s the point I raise blame
And discipline the fool inside my head
Where nothings fair and no one there
To honour all mistakes I’ve made
And looking through my own debris
I see nothing but me and more of me
It’s so distressing all the blessing
Never seems to fall on me

The pictures framed to form an edge
Th truth it lies within the heart
It’s funny how we live this life and
Never seem to live enough
I won’t be true cause I can’t seem to
It’s only just a state of mind that
Time and time and time and time again

It’s changes, I swallow what I want to say
I’m broken up I cannot breath
I cannot be I need I need to
All in all and every time I follow you
I see it out; see it out of blind eyes

It’s alright I’m alright, I just need to believe
I’m not afraid anymore, I will feel my way back
Lay your hands on me
