Merry Christmas everyone!

Dear readers 🙂 (and everyone i am thinking of right now),

Christmas has been upon me all to soon this year and others are so much better at saying truly meaningful things at this time of year than me! For the lovely Armitage Xmas message, see Guylty’s warm Xmas post

I wish you all peaceful times this Christmas with loved ones, hope you all get to enjoy these days in your own special ways.

Instead of the usual seasonal music there is this song i’ve always liked and which has been playing in my head all these past weeks and which i have decided to share with you. I hope you will like it, it is about ‘hope’ itself 🙂

English translation from the internet below the video

The colour of hope

I know what’s in your eyes with just looking at you
(I know) you’re tired of walking and walking
and walking, always in circles in the same place

I know that windows can be opened
to change the atmosphere depends on you
it’ll help you, it’s worth it once more

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

It’s better to get lost than never having boarded
better to fall in temptation than giving up trying
even though you see it’s not that easy to start
I know that impossible can be achieved
that sadness will go one day
and it’ll be like that, life will change and change

You’ll feel your soul flying
for singing one more time

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

It’s better being able to shine
than just trying to look at the sun

To paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

To know it’s possible
to want it to happen
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our
hearts

(Source of translation here ) For the Spanish version this Unplugged Video version has the subtitles and also a verse in Portuguese, both versions inspire me 🙂 (Feel free to listen to the whole album there, it’s one of my favourites :-))

    • thank you! u are right it’s nearly 3 am again here, it’s peaceful, but i can scratch the idea of ever catching up with anything or writing much or seeing any DVDs.. but none of that runs away 😉
      Hope the music choice doesn’t turn out too mushy for the readers :-p xxx
