What My World Sounds Like – “Digging a Ditch” & “I love you”

Apr

For the past few weeks, I’ve been neglecting doing some necessary “releasing.” I’ve learned that in order to find the good, obviously, we have to let go of the perceived “bad”, i.e. regrets from the past, anxious worries about the future, self-imposed limitations, etc.

On my way home from the gym, I turned to Dave’s Busted Stuff. In addition to the lyrics and the mood of this song, I absolutely adore the saxophone played by the late LeRoi Moore.

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Unplug the TV, turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I’m digging a ditch where madness gives a bit
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Digging a ditch for when I’m old
Digging this ditch my story’s told

Where all these troubles
That weigh down on me will rise
Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Where all these questions
Spinnin’ around my head
Will die, will die, will die…

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Unplug the TV, turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I’m digging a ditch where madness gives a bit
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Digging a ditch when I am through
Digging this ditch I’ll dig in for you
Where all these worries
Weigh it down on me will rise
Where all these habits
Pull heavy at my heart
will die

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Not what you should be or what you’ve become
Just get heavy on with digging your ditch

Cause I’m digging a ditch where madness gives a bit
Digging a ditch where silence lives
Where all these dissapointments, grow angry out of me
Will rise…
Will die…
Will die…
Will die…

Run to your dreaming
When you’re alone
Unplug the TV
And turn off your phone
Get heavy on with digging your ditch

As a bonus, enjoy the lovely sound of Esthero. This woman’s voice is amazing. If we were around each other and she decided to sing all day, I’d let her. She’s that good. Kudos to her for the line, “There might have been a face before, but it was never as beautiful as yours.”

  1. Enjoyed the first song, def can relate… absolutely lovin’ and feelin’ the second song! Goodness, I have to dip into your music library 🙂

    It’s really frustrating not having the internet at my apartment, because I can’t get to a computer very often. However, when I do, I’m always uplifted by something you’ve decided to share 😀 thank you!
