Just recently...

...I've been listening to a lot of Pet Shop Boys music, and particularly when I listened to their Release album (probably for the first time properly since I bought it) I was rather taken by these two songs - I found them rather positive and uplifting, so I thought I'd share them. I realise that the lyrics only tell half the story, but trust me, the tunes are rather beautiful.


E-mail
Communication's never been
As easy as today,
And it would make me happy
When you've gone so far away

If you'd send me an email that says I love you,
send me an email that says I love you.

Now time and distance melt away,
No digital delay,
And some things can be written down
That we're too shy to say.

Send me an email that says I love you,
Send me an email that says I love you.

There may be other
Temptations in your life,
Don't want to add more
Complications to your life.

I'm sending this mail to say I love you,
Sending this mail to say I love you.

Now there's a ghost within this house,
You're haunting me tonight,
I'm looking at some photographs
And thinking that I might
Jump on a plane and surprise you where
You are - do you want me there?
I'm so insecure,
But one thing would make me sure,

If you'd send me an email that says I love you,
send me an email that says I love you.

Send me an email that says I love you.


Here
We all have a dream of a place we belong,
The fire is burning and the radio's on,
Somebody smiles and it means "I love you",
But sometimes we don't notice when the dream has come true.

You've got a home here.
Call it what you want, you've got a home here
To return to when you can't
Face the world, and you need support
To succeed.
You've got a home.

We all make a mess of our lives from time to time.
It's part of the process, that you stumble as you climb.
And if you ever feel the pain is far too big a deal
I say with pride I'll be on your side.

You've got a home here.
Call it what you want, you've got a home here.
You're gonna want it when you can't
Face the world, and you need some support
To succeed.
You've got a home.

You've got a home.

David.
