Me and You


Whilst doing the 30 Day Song Challenge I got to day day 7 - A song that reminds you of a certain event. I thought I would share this with you guys too, one because I'm a sharing kinda person ;) and two because I have an application to fill in and I am procrastinating.

When I moved away from Bristol in my attempt to be a single lady (despite having already met Tom and thinking he was a little bit/totally handsome and lovely) I was on a desperate job hunt and spent many a day in North Shields Library..
Anyway one of these days I was checking my email and Tom had sent me a link to the above video..I couldn't actually listen to it with the sound on (as I was in a library) so I watched it with the sound off and looked up the lyrics..then I made my own tune :)


'We're moving gravel off someone else's drive,

Into a barrel, it helps us stay alive.
Off to market
You will buy a cone.
They'll never notice,
They're never home.

Policy and bureaus help to move the tide,
Pounds filling euros, get yourself a life.
He loves you for who you are,
and nothing could see otherone it's tight.
Marry into money, marry twice.
Live underneath the staircase, of speak your mind.

Well I've got a feeling someome else is reading 
The letters I wrote to you.
Well, my pets illiterate
And I live alone.
So, it's someone in betwixed of me and you

Me and you, 
Me and you.
Last time we spoke I thought we were through. 
I found a map,
I found a map,
I found a map,
I found a map. 
And now i know the way you can just go 
Back, back, back, back.

There's a bat hibernating on my bathroom wall,
No-one went in for weeks, he thought it was a home.
Safe to sleep the nights away, 
Shh, shh, shh.

I offered him some food but he said, I cannot stay,
I'm disgraced by my actions and i'm at law from the cay,
Crying in the taxi won't do you no good.

I tried to make a vessel but there was no wood.
Strong enough to bend and never swell
We can jump right in 
And buy a pair of gills.
But holding on for that long might a job aswell.

Me and you,
Me and you.
Last time we spoke i thought we were through. 
I found a map,
I found a map,
I found a map,
I found a map. 
And now i know the way you can just go 
Back, back, back, back.

Me and you, 
Me and you.
Last time we spoke i thought we were through. 
I found a map,
I found a map,
I found a map, 
I found a map. 
And now i know the way you can just go 
Back, back, back, back.
Back, back, back, back.

Help yourself out, shoot history in the mouth,
It's all that's left to do.
Look me up in some phonebook
Under, Me and You.'


I hadn't even heard of the band Slow Club at the time either so my tune was a little off :)
Anyways Tom sings that song often and it always reminds me of how I felt in that library watching a silent music video and reading the lyrics separately and the feeling of starting to fall in love...

Other things to happen at this time:

  • Moving into a flat with my best friend
  • The fact that said flat had no oven/microwave/any kind of cooking facility 
  • Being colder than I can remember...ok it was January but still..the north is cold!
  • Dancing like loons in beer soaked venues
  • Winter walks across the sea front
  • Reflecting
  • Letters and txt's and FB messaging and mobile chats and emails everyday...falling in love long distance..
During this time of unemployment I watched a CBBC program (yes Children's BBC!) about alternative forms of cooking and learnt you can heat up a pre cooked pizza with a hair dryer...so we gave it a go.

Apologies for the terrible quality stills hehe
video
Very silly I know and top points if were managed to twist your head to watch it! (My bestie is not the best camera lady).
