I wandered out in the world for years
While you just stayed in your room.
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon.
Taken from the song ‘The Whole of the Moon’ by The Waterboys. Originally released in 1985 from the album This is the Sea, it was released again in 1991 and subsequently won two Ivor Novello Awards.
Child, don’t you worry
It’s enough you’re growing up in such a hurry.
Brings you down, the news they sell you
To put in your mind that all mankind is a failure.
Taken from the song ‘What Happens Tomorrow’ from the album Astronaut by Duran Duran (2004)
There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
Taken from the song ‘Comfortably Numb’ from the album The Wall by Pink Floyd (1979)
Now I’m just chasing time
With a thousand dreams I’m holding heavy.
And as we cross the line these fading beats have all been severed,
Don’t tell me our youth is running out.
It’s only just begun.
Taken from the song ‘Youth’ by the artist Foxes from her upcoming album Glorious.
I’m ripping your posters off the wall
I’m moving the boxes into the hall
I stop when I hear a drumbeat call
Must be a sign, it is time
Taken from the song ‘Pull my Heart Away’ from the album Everything is New (2009).
Finding eternity arouses reactions
Freeing excellence affects reality
Fallen empires are ruling
Find earth and reap
Fantastic expectations, amazing revelations
Final execution and resurrection
Free expression as revolution
Finding everything and realising
Taken from the song ‘F.E.A.R’ by Ian Brown from the album Music of the Spheres (2001)
I really should be saying goodnight
I really shouldn’t stay any more.
It’s been so long since I held you,
I’ve forgotten what love is for.
Taken from the song ‘Trouble’ by Lindsey Buckingham off the album Law and Order (1981)
Walk in silence,
Don’t walk away, in silence
Taken from the song ‘Atmosphere’ by Joy Division (1979)
You may say I’m a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us,
And the world will be as one
Taken from the song Imagine by John Lennon (1971)
