Sunshine, you had me at CNN. The red in the image is my heart. Since that post from long ago I’ve felt you have had a hold on my heart, gently pulling me in, like no other. You are going to have the time of your life in about 48 hours or so. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for you! This is the song I want you to be prepared to hear ( I pray he actually plays it–lol). I think it will be his hit on album two.

I Really Want You

I really want you, I really want you

Many prophets preach on bended knee.
Many clerics wasted wine.
Do the bloodied sheets on those cobbled streets mean
I have wasted time?
Are there silver shores of paradise?
Can I come in from the cold?
I killed a man in a faraway land,
My enemy I’m told.

I really want you to really want me,
But I really don’t know if you can do that.
I know you want to know what’s right,
But I know its so hard for you to do that.
And time’s running out, as often it does,
and often dictates that you can’t do that,
But fate can’t break this feeling inside,
That’s burning up through my veins.

I really want you, I really want you.
I really want you, now.
No matter what I say or do,
The message isn’t getting through,
And you’re listening to the sound,
Of my breaking heart.

I really want you, I really want you

Is a poor man rich in solitude,
Or does Mother Earth complain?
Did the beggar pray for a sunny day,
But lady luck for rain?
They say a million people bow and scrape,
To an effigy of gold.
I saw life begin and the ship we’re in and,
History unfold.


No matter what I say or do
The message isn’t getting through
And you’re listening to the sound
Of my breaking heart

I really want you (repeat to end)

James Blunt
