    You're joking but it will get me going - that, Dance with My Father and Hey There Delilah are songs that set me off in a flash hehe

    That's a lovely version SG - he has a really nice voice, can pick up his accent :) and that sax is fab!

    If you really loved me the way you say you do
    If you love me half as much as I love you
    You would pluck a planet from the sky
    You’d use a star to dot the “i”
    In I love you… that is what you’d do
    You’d take a cloudy sky and you would paint it blue
    If you loved me unconditionally
    It’s the very least you’d do for me

    You know I need you
    Like a fish needs the sea
    Like a fire needs oxygen
    Like a flower needs a bee
    But if you really care for me
    You’d let me video you while you wee
    Standing up in the bath, I shouldn’t even have to ask
    Perhaps you’ll even store a little more in a flask
    These are just the things that people do
    When their love for one another is true
    Doo doo doo

    We go together
    Like a cracker and Brie
    Like racism and ignorance
    Like bling and R&B
    But if you really want to show you care
    You’d let me wear your underwear
    When we go to your mum’s, for a bit of harmless fun
    I just like talking about your childhood with lace between my buns
    There’s no reason for a big to-do
    If your love for me is true

    We go together
    Like a bird and a nest
    Like Internet and porn
    Like guns and the US
    And if you love me like you say you do
    You’d purchase thirty cockatoos
    And teach them to fly… in formation in the sky
    And shit the words “Tim is God” on my ex-girlfriend’s Hyundai
    Sure, it might be easier with doves
    But shirking challenges is not what love

    Is all about
    Love is not all wine and roses
    Sometimes it’s handcuffs and cheese
    No-one said love is for free
    And if you acknowledge that
    You’d sing me Bible stories wearing nothing but your Bob the Builder hat
    To the tune of waltzing Matilda
    I just love the combination of Islam, nationalism and builder

    Because I need you
    Like a tick needs a tock
    Like bananas need pyjamas
    Like a nun needs cock
    But if you want to put your love for me first
    You wouldn’t go through childbirth
    You’d agree to adopt so that you could stay thin
    We’ll get a Chinese kid, it could teach us Mandarin
    And communists don’t make as much noise
    And they’re really good at sharing their toys

    Because I dig you
    Like an Aussie digs pies
    Like Born-Agains dig Jesus
    Like Jesus dug guys

    And if you love me unconditionally
    You’d do my tax return for me
    Cos it’s way overdue, and I just don’t know,
    I guess I’m self-employed but do I still pay as I go?
    And does the threshold apply to me?
    And should I register for GST
    And if you love me unconditionally
    You’ll let me video you while you wee?
    Assuming there’s nothing worth watching on TV

    Who else :P

    I have an unhealthy obsession with him :)

    I had another but felt I was posting too many lengthy ones so I'll wait a while before I post it.

    Search "Tim Minchin - If I didn't have you" on youtube if you're interested in the other one :) The above one was "If you really loved me"

    I do like 'If I didn't have you'. Romance is great, but occasionally nonsensical statements irritate me :~S Is that bad?

    Exactly - as I said in the nerdy thread - when my fella tells me I'm not the ONLY one *right* for him but I am the one he's chosen - I love it :). Honesty mean more to me because I know he's actually sat and considered what I mean to him rather than just saying cliches.

    I'll never copy and paste again - just realised the above says "bible" and then refers to "Islam" - obviously wrong :) sorry about that, thought I'd edited all the relevant bits!

    Clear are thy eyes and bright thy breath!
    Snow-white! Snow-white! We sing to thee!
    In a far land beyond the Sea.

    O stars that in a Sunless Year
    With shining hand by her were sown,
    In windy fields now bright and clear
    We see your silver blossom blown!
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    An Elven-maid there was of old,
    A shining star by day:
    Her mantle white was hemmed with gold,
    Her shoes of silver-grey.

    A star was bound upon her brows,
    A light was on her hair
    As sun upon the golden boughs
    In Lórien the fair.

    Her hair was long, her limbs where white,
    And fair she was and free;
    And in the wind she went as light
    As leaf of linden-tree.

    Beside the falls of Nimrodel,
    By water clear and cool,
    Her voice as falling silver fell
    Into the shining pool.
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Beren meets Lúthien

    'A! Lúthien, Tinúviel,
    why wentest thou to darkling dell
    with shining eyes and dancing pace,
    the twilight glimmering in thy face?
    Each day before the end of eve
    she sough her love, nor would him leave,
    until the stars were dimmed, and day
    came glimmering eastward silver-grey.
    Then trembling-veiled she would appear
    and dance before him, half in fear;
    there flitting just before his feet
    she gently chid with laughter sweet:
    'Come! dance now, Beren, dance with me!
    For fain thy dancing I would see.
    Come! thou must woo with nimbler feet,
    than those who walk where mountains meet
    the bitter skies beyond this realm
    of marvellous moonlit beech and elm.'
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    The above are excerpts of Tolkiens poems, which I find are easily adapted, although I'm better suited to prose than poetry

    Still reading Kant then? :P

    I started my metaphsics module today... The words Hegel says as words make sense but not together...

    Haha. Yes, my goodness I'm glad the man is deceased and can write no more to plague my life!! Taking a break from that for lighter reading :) yay! Politics :)

    We were examining letters between Maria Von Herbert, Kant and a mutual friend today..it was intriguing.

    on the poetry front I prefer music; or a piece of prose which he knows I favour, but Mr R is artistic over choosing to write (which makes the few letters and cards I have from him the more precious)

    Ok I know this is a Valentine's thread but still I heard this and thought I'd bump the thread.

    Fleetwood Mac - Songbird

    For you, there'll be no more crying,
    For you, the sun will be shining,
    And I feel that when I'm with you,
    It's alright, I know it's right

    To you, I'll give the world
    to you, I'll never be cold
    'Cause I feel that when I'm with you,
    It's alright, I know it's right.

    And the songbirds are singing,
    Like they know the score,
    And I love you, I love you, I love you,
    Like never before.

    And I wish you all the love in the world,
    But most of all, I wish it from myself.

    And the songbirds keep singing,
    Like they know the score,
    And I love you, I love you, I love you,
    Like never before, like never before.
