KEANE & Tim Rice-Oxley quotes

I don’t wanna be adored
Don’t wanna be first in line
Or make myself heard
I’d like to bring a little light
To shine a light on your life
To make you feel loved

No, don’t wanna be the only one you know
I wanna be the place you call home

I lay myself down
To make it so, but you don’t want to know
I give much more
Than I’d ever ask for

Will you see me in the end?
Or is it just a waste of time
Trying to be your friend?
Just shine, shine, shine
Shine a little light
Shine a light on my life
And warm me up again

Fool, I wonder if you know yourself at all
You know that it could be so simple

I lay myself down
To make it so, but you don’t want to know
You take much more
Than I’d ever ask for

Say a word or two to brighten my day
Do you think that you could see your way

To lay yourself down
And make it so, but you don’t want to know
You take much more
Than I’d ever ask for

Keane – Hamburg Song

“I hate it when people refuse to acknowledge their own feelings and reactions to something, because they see it as being a weakness to say that they’re scared, or upset about something, or whatever.”

*

“It can happen to anyone, people judge you too quickly rather than actually bothering to find out what’s below the surface.”

*

“I like trying to write about confusion and grey areas because life is not normally very clear-cut and simple, especially when it comes to the way people interact.”

*

-: “Tim do you ever worry about people thinking you’re weird?”
+: “Well, you say that Ted, but I don’t think it’s possible to be a good artist without being a bit of a freak. If you were happy and contended and normal then you wouldn’t be able to work.”
 

– Tim Rice-Oxley
