Healing

I've always turned to music whenever I feel emotions in excess. Whether it be pain, sadness, joy. There are so many different kinds of music out there that you're sure to find one that suits your mood.

I myself have been having a great time lately, but there are two of my most loved ones that have stumbled onto a bad patch. And it just so happens that I found the perfect song to show my appreciation for their situation. And also to tell them that I'll be here, whenever they need me. =)

Anyhow, although I've been playing the guitar since the age of 10, I haven't touched one in the past 2 years. It's a long story, don't ask. But when I heard this song, I knew I just had to pick it up again. My fingertips hurt like hell. But it was worth it.

So here is my rendition of the song "Heal Over" by KT Tunstall. Excuse the many mistakes, please. My fingers hurt to much to record it yet again. *chuckles*

Enjoy.




HEAL OVER

Isn't very difficult to see why
You are the way you are
Doesn't take a genius to realise
That sometimes life is hard
It's gonna take time
But you'll just have to wait
You're gonna be fine
But in the meantime

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Cause you'll heal over
Heal over
Heal over someday

I don't wanna hear you tell yourself
That these feelings are in the past
No it doesn't mean they're off the shelf
Because pain is built to last
Everybody sails alone
But we can travel side by side
Even if you fail
You know that no one really minds

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Cause you'll heal over
Heal over
Heal over someday

Don't hold on but don't let go
I know it's so hard
You've got to try to trust yourself
I know it's so hard
So hard

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Cause you'll heal over
Heal over
Heal over someday


So whenever any of feel that you've failed in something and you're feeling down, remember that there's ALWAYS someone out there who'll help you through it. You'd be surprised how a simple act of friendship can help even if you feel paralysed.

Cheerio!
