Sweet Talk

Last night I went out with a friend and we had a great time talking over tea and baked brie at an Irish Pub. On the way home I was feeling so good and this song, by The Killers of course, just fit my mood. Here are the lyrics and I found a site you can listen to it too. The link is at the bottom of this post. This song is like a prayer and even though the words seem kind of depressing, the music changes the tone considerably. You'll have to hear it to know what I mean. It is also on YouTube, I just can't figure out how to get the video link on my blog.

Sweet Talk by The Killers
Lift me up on my honour
Take me over this spell
Get this weight off my shoulders
I've carried it well
Loose these shackles of pressure
Shake me out of these chains
Lead me not to temptation
Hold my hand harder
Ease my mind
Roll down the smoke screen
And open the sky
Let me fly

Man I need a release from
This troublesome mind
Fix my feet when they’re stumbling
And well you know it hurts sometimes
You know it's gonna bleed sometimes
Dig me out from this thorn tree
Help me bury my shame
Keep my eyes from the fire
They can’t handle the flame
Grace cut out from my brothers
When most of them fell
I carry it well
Let me fly

Man I need a release from
This troublesome mind
Fix my feet when they’re stumbling
I guess you know it hurts sometimes
You know it's gonna bleed sometimes
Now hold on

I’m not looking for sweet talk
I’m looking for time
Top a tower and sleep walk
Brother, cause it hurts sometimes
You know it's gonna bleed sometimes
Hold on
You know its gonna hurt sometimes
When you call me
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

I’m gonna climb that symphony home and make it mine
Let his resonance light my way
See, all these pessimistic sufferers tend to drag me down
So I could use it to shelter what good I’ve found

    Hello, I really enjoyed reading this and know what you mean by the tone of the song changing the meaning of the words, presentation is perspective. Call me and I can share how to make the YouTube connection or start you down a path, I just learned how to capture these for my presentations. Thanks for wrapping up my night.
