"If"
  • PrettyboyfloydPrettyboyfloyd February 2012

    If i were a Swan,I'd be gone


    If i were a train,I'd be late


    And if i were a good man,I'd talk with you more often than i do


    If i were to sleep,i could dream


    If i were afraid.I could hide


    If i go insane,please don't put your wires in my brain


    If i were the moon.I'd be cool


    If i were a book,i would bend


    If i were a good man,I'd understand the spaces between friends


    If i were alone,i would cry


    And if i were with you.I'd be home and dry


    And if i go insane,will you still let me join in with the game


    If i were a swan.I'd be gone


    If i were a train,I'd be late again


    If i were a good man,I'd talk to you more often than i do

    .  .  .   IF , is  my  favorite  song , when  I  am  a  little  melancholy  or  depressed  . .  then  my  son  takes  his  guitar  play  the  melody  and  encourage  me  to  sing , an  effective  therapy . .   the  words  do  miracle  and  the  melody  is  simply  wonderful  .  .  .  .  IF ,  is  not  known  very  well , but  so  a  such  beautiful  song , that  we  don' t  remember  anymore , roger  has  an  infinity  of  good  songs , for  every  mental  state  there  is  one  .  .  .  
  • jcare February 2012
    How was your sleep butterfly?  Hope you had a lot of nice dreams. I agree there is a song for every mental state, some of them are so powerful that I have to be in the right frame of mind to listen to them. They each have their own beauty..and there are so many different type of beauty.

    I usually supplement my Rogerian sessions with some Tom Waits, just to cool things off.
  • butterflybutterfly February 2012
    .  .  .   Hi  " TheLabyrinth ", here  in  switzerland , Tom  Waits  is  not  known  very  well , so  I  go  on  wikipedia  find  info  .  .  .  someone  says  about  him , his  voice  sounds  like  it  was  soaked  in  a  vat  of  bourbon , left  hanging  in  the  smokehouse  for  a  few  month  and  then  taken  outside  and  run  over  with  a  car  .  .   WOW ,  I  go  on  youtube , to  hear  about  this  voice  and  WOW , this  songwriter  is  really  a  big  revelation  for  me ,  i like  him ,  he  is  also  a  little  bit  comedian , great  tip  .  .  .  good  continuation  to  you  with  your  " combination  therapy "  .  .  .  
  • butterflybutterfly February 2012
    .  .  .  " nights  in  white  satin "  from  moody  blues  were  famous , when  I  felt  in  love  for  the  first  time , it  was  37  years  ago , and  is  still  current , I  love  this  song , it  is  so  emotional , generally I  like  the  moody  blues  .  .  .

    Hey All... Just got home and " ITS MEDICATION TIME"

    Please keep up with your therapy suggestions. Keep the new links coming? I find my tolerance building up so I need to keep my mind guessing whats coming next. I think I am starting to fool myself?

    No damn it. False alarm. I am on to me!

    in an early version of a band i was in back in 1992, we used to play IF & SUMMER 68 just for the hell of it. cut to last summer where i managed to figure out on my 4 string classical ukelele, a lower pitched tuning that i can play IF like it was Primus covering it. sounds funky
  • Bump again truly beautiful song

    I like the song IF very much, but i think it exposes a weak side of Roger Waters. There are no IFs and BUTs when it comes to Art.

    I wish the song was like,

    I am a Swan, and i am gone,

    When I am train, be sure, I will be late,

    I am a good man, but i am in no mood to speak to you.

    etc...

    But the Dog was not Toppy thing...was really awesome...some brave heart. Imagine if the dog felt, DG was missed a note or it felt, the whole thing was not Toppy...Toppy Toppy...Need some Poppy...Oh my Poppy Puppy Poopy...
