Prose for Thought – Be With You

Last week saw the most linkers so far to our lovely group of poetry writers. I have become very proud of this link up, mainly due to the amazing talents that showcase their work here. I am truly grateful for your support.

This week I am exposing myself in the biggest way I think possible, even bigger to me than getting naked! I am not only sharing with you a song I wrote but also sung…on stage back in 2011… and attached is the recording of this same song.  This is the demo recording we did in my flat with two very talented musicians – Angela McCarthy and Andrew Smith.  On stage every night I would sing it to Ross who was up in the lighting gallery doing sound. I wrote all the verses and a friend of mine wrote the chorus. One day I may get round to uploading the video of me on stage singing it but for now I believe I am exposing myself enough. Be kind please!



Be With You

Why is it everytime I try

Spread my wings and wanna fly

Theres a shadow hanging over me

Why is it when I get so near

Is it then I feel a fear

A kind of shadow hanging over me



But you see the meaning

And I feel the feeling

That I wanna be with you

Not for just the good times

Travellin long the fine lines

And I wanna be with you


What if I said that I love you

But you didn’t love me too

Tell me just how I would handle this

And I’m so filled with dread and fear

I have shed many a tear

Not knowing how to handle this




Now I look deep into your eyes

And I don’t need to disguise

Just how my heart can feel for you

Oh, to you I will stay true

I’m forever holding you

This is how my heart will feel for you

    Great lyrics! Thankyou for linking up to Wednesday Words. I really want to listen to your clip but sadly my broadband is with Sky… my connection is too slow for it to stream vids or music. I need a new laptop and a new provider!

    Well done on sharing all. We all love reading it. xx

    I loved the lyrics and you are certainly talented when it comes to the ‘arts’. This is fab – love reading your posts. Even though I don’t always comment, I read them all x

    You really are a multi-faceted lady! I am always so proud of people who “put themselves out there”. Lovely words – I haven’t yet listened to the song but I will. And now I’ve discovered yet another linky to join! I haven’t written poetry in years, I may dig out some of my teenage angst-ridden notebooks especially! Xx

    Ahhhhh you know what this reminds me of? Christine McVee (Fleetwood Mac) who wrote Songbird for the guy who was the lighting technician and sang it for him each night. Beautiful xx
