Play Meet Me In The Morning – Everything But The Girl
“I haven’t come to be a stranger…I’ve come to be your love.
Don’t let the grass grow under your feet. The sands of time keep running. For now, at last, i’m down on the street…“
The inherent poetry of the song’s lyrics touches those who have fallen in love despite current attachments. Both as an invitation for escape and a fervent rescue towards a fuller life of love. Many will perhaps sense that the song may have advocated cheating or adultery. But Teki would like to believe that the song talks more about the finding of true love, which is something you cannot discount happening. The hope of no harm by the singer’s perspective allows one to think that at last one is urged to take the adventurous plunge of being happy. (You will find this track in EBTG‘s 1990 album, Language of Life.)
This was the one of the first albums i ever bought when i started earning my own money over 16 years ago. Clair Marlo’s album Let It Go comes with a subtle simplicity and freshness during an age of new opportunities, an age where you come and discover who you want to be for the rest of your life. That i was, for all intents and purposes, a sensitive and caring young woman.
Sometimes, there are people in our lives who are just passing through like lost loves that we will always remember.
A song composed by songwriting greats Roger Nichols and Paul Williams in the 70’s, Traveling Boy was the first track of the album Angel Care.
The album title is lifted from a Thomas Hardy character from his book Tess of d’Urbervilles, a tragic tale of lost loves and sad circumstance. Angel Care, husband to Tess, abandons his wife due to her past. He comes back for her only to find Tess a mistress to a wealthy scion, who raped her in the past and whom she murders to exact revenge. Angel and Tess spend an uninterrupted five days of bliss before she is arrested and hanged.
Sometimes there is a song that captures our soul for days on end, that it becomes a part of your own soundtrack in life.
