Another Conversation


October 19th 2008

Hope you’re listening angel.

I’ve just been sitting here remembering a day. Years ago now, but clear in my minds eye. A memory as vivid as if I could see the ghost of that day happening all around me, superimposed over this empty room.

We were in Bearwood then, it was just before we finally packed the studio into boxes for the move to our new house. Our first real home together. Most of the studio was unwired, most of the racks were empty, and I remember how red the last of the days light was as it shone through the little attic window. You remember how excited we were? It was a melancholy night though if I remember. We’d talked a lot about leaving Bearwood. About leaving the place where we’d first met. Where it all began.

The last thing we’d left to pack were the mixing desk, amps and speakers. Just so we listen to music while we tidied up. Funny, I can’t remember any of the songs we played. In fact the only song I do remember was the very last I ever heard in that room.

Oh Lindsay, do you remember. I want so badly to be able to share this memory with you. That rather than just writing it here, we were holding hands reminiscing.  I can’t remember us ever mentioning it since that day. I’m not sure I even remembered myself until today.

Do you remember, just before we unplugged the last cables and sent the room into silence. Do you remember picking up the microphone, smiling at me, and singing ‘Songbird’?

"for you, there’ll be no crying

for you, the sun will be shining

‘cus I feel that when I’m with you its alright

I know its right

and the songbirds keep singing like they know the score

and I love you, I love you, I love you like never before"

 

Then you, still holding the mic, humming the music and smiling at me. You never did make it all the way though the last chorus. That next hour we didn’t manage much more tidying up did we my angel.

 

"To you I would give the world

to you I’d never be cold

‘cus I feel that I’m with you its alright

I know its right

and the songbirds keep singing like they know the score

and I love you, I love you, I love you like never before

like never before.

 

And I wish you all the love in the world

but most of all

I wish it from myself "

 

Oh Lindsay, it’s breaks my heart.

I miss you my angel.

xx
