I’ve spent the day editing someone else’s words, in a field of study which leaves me a little uninspired. So tonight finds me both lacking in words and in search of inspiration. While I think a couple of hours of sleep should restore both to me, I’m hedging my bets and have lined up some of my favourite songs to play me to dreamland. It’s a playlist made up of simple melodies, clear voices and lyrics to latch on to.
Here’s one to share – ‘Always Will’ by Nanci Griffith. I love it for its romance, realism, simplicity and the honest little two lines of chorus:
“Hey, you always stood me still. Hey, you always will.”
