Lyrically Speaking for April 28


Welcome back to the return of Lyrically Speaking! Since it’s been a while, I’ll quickly re-introduce this part of Copious Notes. Music is really poetry set to sound. It can inspire and really move us emotionally. The purpose of these posts is to help generate the spark of an idea that may hit you.

So with that said, today we’re featuring a song that happened to come up on my iPod last week that just has a great melody but also passionate lyrics. I’m not a big fan of middle-of-the-road generic rock but I make an exception for The Calling.

From the album Two this is Anything by The Calling:

I will be there
Always waiting
Waiting for you
To let me inside
Where your fire burns
In a city of angels
Just like a river rushing straight into the sea
I’m the one thing meant for you and you for me

[CHORUS:]
Whatever you want
Whatever you need
Whatever it takes, I’ll do anything

And as you sleep
Eyes to the window
I’m watching you dream
Well are you dreaming of me?
So why can’t you see
You’re all that matters
You know if this earth should crack
I’ll be your solid ground
I will be there to catch you when you fall down

[CHORUS]

If I have to crawl
Get down on my knees
Whatever it takes, I’ll go anything

I’d take the stars right out of the sky for you
I’d end the world give you the sun, the moon
For all of time, forever loving you

Whatever you need
Whatever it takes, I’ll do anything
If I have to crawl
Get down on my knees
Whatever it takes, I’ll do anything
