#MusicMonday ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS NEW YEAR’S DAY by HURTS

Happy Music Monday and Merry Christmas to you all! Time for a bit of music for the tag hosted by Drew at THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK , a weekly chance to share some songs and videos!
And I’ve gone festive this week! With a song that sums up my thoughts towards this Christmas… hurry up and be over already!! I think this is the least festive I’ve ever felt and I’ll be a happy bunny when this year is over and done with!! Cheery soul aren’t I!?

Everybody waits for Christmas
For me it’s New Year’s Day
That’s gonna come and take my blues away

I’m wishing on the stars for Christmas
And hoping for a better day
When it doesn’t hurts to feel this way

And everywhere there’s joy around this
First day of time of year
And happiness has never felt so far away

All of the bells ringing out for Christmas
I’m singing Goodbye to the year before
I know that the next one will be different – soo much more

All of the bells ringing out for Christmas
And I’m not supposed to feel this way
All that I want this year for Christmas is New Year’s Day

It’s only seven days ’till Christmas
Six more ’till New Year’s Day
It’s not a good time to feel this way

Everywhere the snow surrounds you
And melt your troubles away
I can only hope to feel the same

I know that there will be tidings of joy
This time next year
But happiness has never felt so far away

All of the bells ringing out for Christmas
I’m singing Goodbye to the year before
I know that the next one will be different – soo much more

All of the bells ringing out for Christmas
And I’m not supposed to feel this way
All that I want this year for Christmas is New Year’s Day

I remember how I used to feel at Christmas

All of the bells ringing out for Christmas
I’m singing Goodbye to the year before
I know that the next one will be different – soo much more

All of the bells ringing out for Christmas
And I’m not supposed to feel this way
All that I want this year for Christmas is New Year’s Day

All of the bells ringing out for Christmas
And I’m not supposed to feel this way
All that I want this year for Christmas is New Year’s Da

yAll of the bells ringing out for Christmas
And I’m not supposed to feel this way
All that I want this year for Christmas is New Year’s Day

#MusicMonday ALL I HAVE TO GIVE by HURTS

Happy Monday! Back with another song for MUSIC MONDAY – hosted by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek – which is your weekly chance to share a song or video you love!

A new release from Hurts for me! They’ve just released their fifth album, FAITH, and it’s wonderful! This song is ALL I HAVE TO GIVE….

You’re staring in the mirror
Watching as the walls are closing in
The shadow of a figure
Tryna make the best of this state that I am in

I guess I could do it
With the friends I’ve been pushing away
But I’m destined to suffer
Until I discover the reasons I’m afraid

God knows I tried
It might not be good enough
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give
You might be right, sometimes
I never open up
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give

You’re staring in the mirror
Picturing the face of a younger man
He buries it away
‘Cause he’s gotta try and cope in a way he’d understand

Be there for your brother
And strong for your mother again
‘Cause he’s too young to get it and she’ll get upset
If she knows you feel the pain

God knows I tried
It might not be good enough
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give
You might be right, sometimes
I’m too scared to open up
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give to you

I tell myself there’s nothing left to lose
I don’t know why I’m hiding from the truth
I face myself and all I see is you, is you

You’re staring in the mirror
Watching as the walls are closing in

But God knows I tried (God knows)
It might not be good enough (Might not be good enough)
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give
You might be right, sometimes
I’m too scared to open up
But it’s all I have to give
This is all I have to give to you
To you
This is all I have to give

#MusicMonday Lights by Hurts

Another week arrives! And another chance to share some tunes with Music Monday – hosted by  Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek 

And for this week I’ve chosen a song from one of my favourite bands, Hurts, and it’s Lights! Always makes me want to dance!

Do you know what it feels like to dance alone?
Do you know what it feels like?
Do you know what it looks like from the outside?
Do you know what it looks like?

Won’t you get up?
Shaking the darkness
Won’t you get up?
And we could just start this now
Cause when you get up I couldn’t ignite it
You’re the one I want beside tonight

Turn up the lights
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you
Turn up the lights
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you dancing

Do you know what it feels like to be the one?
Out here on the dance floor just watching up
Do you know what it hurts like to be left alone?
Do you know what it hurts like?

Cause when you get up I couldn’t ignite it
You’re the one I want beside tonight

Turn up the lights
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you
Turn up the lights
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you dancing

When the lights are turn to low for me
In the dark I feel you close to me
You’re the one that I want to see
You’re the one that I want to see
[x3]

Turn up the lights
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you
Turn up the lights
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you dancing
I just wanna see you

I wanna see you
I wanna see you
I wanna see you
I wanna see you
