Like This: Waste Another Day, Brooke Fraser

Found this old Brooke Fraser song recently… I bought her first album years back and listened to it continuously until I misplaced it one day.  She has definitely grown and changed much as an artist over the span of her career but one things that has remained all the way through is her ability to weave a beautiful story in her songs.  This one was no exception:

Don’t you say it’s too early
Baby I don’t wanna waste the day
When we’ve everything on our side
And nothing in our way

We can do what we wanna
‘Cos today the world is ours
Nothing gray, just real-time and colour
In which to whittle away the hours

We could speak ’til nothing’s left unspoken
We could drive ’til we’ve run out of road
We could drink ’til we’ve emptied the ocean
But I’d be happy here
Happy just to hold you

[Chorus]
‘Til the suns and planets disappear
I could stay in your arms all year
Even if that means infinity through
If being productive is being with you
Then baby I don’t want to waste another day

I’ll shout aloud what I’m feeling
Let my tongue be still no more
Now I know that it’s the real thing
Just try and keep me quiet about it
Oh…

‘Cos we could stare until we both are blinded
We could fall ’til gravity gets tired
We could lose our love just to re-find it
But I’m just happy here
Happy staying beside you

Waste Another Day, Brooke Fraser

I’m looking forward to singing this to you one day :).
