James Blunt


He has a simply amazing voice and deep, rich lyrics. He performed on SNL this last Saturday and sang this song. I was in instantly in tears, my exact feelings in song version. I bought his CD, "Back To Bedlam" on Sunday. The whole thing is wonderful. If you haven't heard him yet, hopefully you soon will.

Goodbye My Lover (Lyrics)

Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what's mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over but it won't stop there,
I am here for you if you'd only care.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your head.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I've been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer but when I wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take.
And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be
I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child.
I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine.
We've had our doubts but now we're fine,
And I love you, I swear that's true.
I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bear my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.

J...Isn't it amazing how the poetry of a song can touch so many hearts. The words, "I've been addicted to you" made me catch my breath. I've never thought of it that way, although I think that many of my friends have... that I was (am) addicted to Jack. Love does that doesn't it? It addicts you to someone, with no rhyme or reason, it just is... thank you for your posts, for your sweetness and your friendship. Kate
