Music Friday: VanVelzen!
You met him last week in the Music Friday: May Surprise, that be if you read and listened. If not here he is again. At first glance he may be small but his heart is big and he has a big music talent. Van Velzem is a Dutch artist and songwriter. His music is catchy and always fun to listen to. Fun Pop I would call it.
But his talents shows when you see him play a guitar, piano and even drums. Lyrics of a hopeless romantic carry you away on dreams and fantasies all while on a snappy tune. There is never a dull moment.
So listen and hear it for yourself. He always gives his all whenever playing music.
As per usual these Music Fridays are being filled with a poem written with only the artist lyrics. And more importantly it is about the music of a certain artist I want to share with you. In this case one you may have never heard of. Hope you enjoy.
Time and place are so unreal
It´s how we see the things or feel
You´re half a world away
But I can feel you near
You’ll be safe and sound
Miles above the ground
I’ll stand tall and make you high
Give you wings and make you fly.
When all your dreams are suddenly shattered
Or life just seems to laugh you in the face
Oh this race is never won
You know that it can’t be done
You might as well be chasing the sun
You gotta flow, like a river
Heading the same way forever
We could never get hurt, the way we are
We gotta get down to feel the floor
We won’t get bruised and we never run
But why regret what we haven’t done
You set my world on fire
Stranded dazed and confused
Stumbling drunk on you
Consumed by my own desire
It’s a beautiful morning, the sun is shining down on me
And you, wherever you are now
Won’t you listen when I’m asking you to…
Hold on I’ll sing you a little love song.
There’s something grand about it
And if you want some more my friends
I’ll sing for you
I feel like making memories
Still got the books, they’ve done me well
But I made some room up on the shelves
Unafraid of what lies ahead
We’ll make the plans and make them last.
Ever since I met you
I’ve been waiting for the snow to fall
Waiting for the moon to call
The sun out of my eyes.
Call it luck
You can call it chance
Call it what you want
But you’re the reason I can’t hide
And now my eyes could sync the light
I clearly make out what it’s all about
Well I can’t believe that took so long to see
Out of all I want there is one I really need
Here are five songs I gathered in a list for your enjoyment. I enjoy each and every one of them and thelast is one to keep in mind every day we walk the path of life.
