#SLS ~4/4/21

Jim at Amy’s suggestion prompts us with blossoms/cherry/flowers. I picked “I Want You” by Savage Garden. Writers: Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones. More at the wiki.

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola
I don’t need to try and explain;
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might move so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

Come stand a little bit closer 
Breath in and get a bit higher 
You’ll never know what hit you 
When I get to you 

[chorus:]

Ooh, I want you 
I don’t know if I need you 
But, ooh, I’d die to find out 
Ooh, I want you 
I don’t know if I need you 
But, ooh, I’d die to find out 

I’m the kind of person who endorses a deep commitment
Getting comfy getting perfect
is what I live for
But a look, then a smell of perfume
It’s like I’m down on the floor
And I don’t know what I’m in for

Conversation has a time and place
In the interaction of a lover and
a mate,
But the time of talking,
using symbols, using words
Can be likened to a deep sea diver who is swimming with a raincoat

Come stand a little bit closer 
Breathe in and get a bit higher 
You’ll never know what hit you 
When I get to you 

[chorus]

Anytime I need to see your face, 
I just close my eyes 
And I am taken to a place where 
your crystal mind and 
Magenta feelings take up shelter 
in the base of my spine 
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola 

I don’t need to try and explain;
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might move so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

[chorus]

So can we find out?

  1. Nice choice Jill. This guy sees this beautiful woman, he knows that she has a reputation, but he decides to take a chance on her. Later when Hayes came out as being gay he said this song is, “about a dream about being in love with a male energy, and waking up and feeling sad that I knew there was a part of me that was missing.”

    1. Thanks Jim! I always like to know the deeper meaning. This song has always been a favorite of mine; one that I try singing along with but can’t quite keep up.
