Let It Be

I don't have cancer, chronic depression, bipolar, obesity, chronic illness, a handicapped child or an alcoholic husband who beats me.
I don't have much to complain about really.

I feel guilty about this but I still sometimes suffer from dissatisfaction, anxiety, depression - sometimes  - and without any sort of good reason for it.
I sometimes wake in the morning and wonder what the hell I've done with my life and panic that I might waste what's left. Those mornings I wish I were a hope filled young person again and my mother would bring me a cup of tea in bed.

And then there are days when I love my life and everything and everyone and can Let It Be

When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom 'Have a cup of tea'
And in my hour of darkness She is standing right in front of me Speaking words of wisdom 'Have a cup of tea'


Let it be, let it be, Let it be, let it be Whisper words of wisdom 'Have a cup of tea'

And when the broken hearted people Living in the world agree There will be an answer 'Have a cup of tea'


For though they may be parted there is Still a chance that they will see There will be an answer 'Have a cup of tea'

Let it be, let it be, Let it be, let it be there will be an answer 'Have a cup of tea'
Let it be, let it be Let it be, let it be Whisper words of wisdom 'Have a cup of tea'

Let it be, let it be, Let it be, let it be Whisper words of wisdom 'Have a cup of tea'

And when the night is cloudy There is still a light that shines on me Shine until tomorrow 'Have a cup of tea'


I wake up to the sound of music Mother Mary comes to me There will be no sorrow 'Have a cup of tea'

Let it be, let it be, Let it be, let it be There will be no sorrow 'Have a cup of tea'
Let it be, let it be, Let it be, let it be

  1. I need a similar song with coffee. (I was just reading some of the wikipedia article of the Beatles yesterday.)(Do you like Coldplay? I am really into a lot of their music and videos at the moment. I am a recently new fan.)

  2. Hi esbboston, checked out some cold play, I like their music, upbeat and uplifting. Time I came out of the seventies? One of my favourite Beatles songs is 'Two of us' - about traveling.

  3. I like Clocks, Paradise, and Speed of Sound really well. I am not sure which our my favorite Beatles songs, or them individually, they are all four so talented. You start trying to find one song and so many cascade in.

  4. I like Paradise and Every Teardrop is a Waterfall has beautiful guitar.

  7. Oh, YES, how did I forget VLV, that was reaLLy the very first one that caught my attention when they played on Saturday Night Live. I probably watched that performance 8 times in a row, DVR back then. I am not sure if that eXact performance is available on youtube. I remember my dog finally got annoyed and left the room.

  8. I tried to paste a link to an interesting Coldplay cover of The Scientist, but I am having difficulties with my iPad pasting into comment boxes, very annoying.

  9. Hee hee.The British answer to all that ails us, 'Have a cup of tea.'
    (I still find it amazing that even as adults, the first people that we want in times of trouble, are our mums)

    I think sometimes, we all reach that point in our lives, when we take a hard look at where we are and realise that it's not where we were planned to be. External influences come crashing down and we end up walking along a different path to the one we originally sought.

    I think it's natural to feel a sense of dissatisfaction and anxiety as we get older, you are certainly not the only one. The problem then becomes, what to do about it. (answers on a postcard please)

    For me, moments of doubts are met with moments of just being grateful for the things I thought I'd never have. (Home, child etc)

    On the subject of Beatle songs, I have one for every mood. "I'm so tired,' when I'm...er, tired. 'A day in the life,' when I'm a bit down and 'Blackbird' when I'm feeling wistful. (it was my birthing song)

    1. wow, don't know if you'll see this later, lily, but great comments, very moving. Very introspective (and a bit of a departure from your darkly funny blog!).

      Julie. I really like this post, and how you imagine the words tailored to you. :) I am not a tea person, so I would also (like esbboston) have to come up with a rhyme for coffee (or ice-cream, that might be easier).

      best,
      MOV

  12. Lilly, thanks for your warm comments (like a cup of tea) I have Irish roots although my husband is of British heritage. Yes with the mixed moments thing - like the pepper got mixed with the chocolate sprinkles. I find I can't taste the chocolate until I've had a good dose of pepper.
    MOV, thanks also - don't know about ice-cream or coffee, they are a bit exciting for me first thing in the morning.

    Follow the link or address to an amazing performance of 'Somebody that I used to know' by Walk Off The Earth (Gotye cover) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9NF2edxy-M&feature=youtu.be it's like a sort of musical love-in.

  13. When my grandfather had a heart attack, we put the kettle on right after we called 911. Paramedics thought we were nuts.

  14. Skwishee, yep - that's what you do. Half the calming effect is in the making of the tea.
