Magical music and feelings of pure joy

Last night I headed to the Palais Theatre in St.Kilda, a stinking hot sweaty night … that I knew would make my heart soar.

Music is always in and around me, often the same album played over and over again day after day for weeks.

Last night I got to sit and let some of my favourite ever songs wash over me, move through me and sit in my heart and head.

Paul Kelly and Neil Finn are the songs of my life and last night to hear both of them together singing their own songs, each other’s songs was magical. Song after song made me smile, remember, sing and cry.

Truly amazing songwriters whose songs have narrated years of my life.

Gentlemen it was a privilege to be in your presence.

Love is the Law
Paul Kelly
Though I speak in tongues of angels
And in many tongues of men
Though prophecy may sing through me
Without love I’m nothing

Though I understand all mysteries
And can see the story’s end
Though my faith can move mountains
Without love I’m nothing

Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love

You may give away your riches
Do good deeds in the sight of men
You may be strong against temptation
But without love you’re nothing

Without love you’re just useless
Without love you’re living in hell
Without love you’re so hollow
An empty horn, a clanging bell

Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love

Love can suffer hardship
Love is tough and kind
Love is never envious
Or puffed up with pride

Love is always truthful
Love is never stale
Love is always hopeful
And never dreams that it can fail

Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love

Fall at your feet
Neil Finn

I’m really close tonight
And I feel like I’m moving inside her
Lying in the dark
And I think that I’m beginning to know her
Let it go
I’ll be there when you call

whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

You’re hiding from me now
There’s something in the way that you’re talking
Words don’t sound right
But I hear them all moving inside you, go
I’ll be waiting when you call

Hey and whenever I fall at your feet
Won’t you let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

The finger of blame has turned upon itself
And I’m more than willing to offer myself
Do you want my presence or need my help
Who knows where that might lead and I fall

Whenever I fall, Whenever I fall
Whenever I fall, ever I fall
