"Do what you have to do" by Sarah McLachlan #musicMonday

What ravages of spirit
conjured this temptuous rage
created you a monster
broken by the rules of love
and fate has lead you through it
you do what you have to do
and fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do …

and I have the sense to recognize that
I don’t know how to let you go
every moment marked
with apparitions of your soul
I’m ever swiftly moving
trying to escape this desire
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
but I have the sense to recognize

that I don’t know how
to let you go
I don’t know how
to let you go

a glowing ember
burning hot
burning slow
deep within I’m shaken by the violence
of existing for only you

I know I can’t be with you
I do what I have to do
I know I can’t be with you
I do what I have to do
and I have sense to recognize but
I don’t know how to let you go

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first.
Regina Spektor
Scan not a friend with a microscopic glass. You know his faults now let his foibles pass. Life is one long enigma, my friend. So read on, read on, the answer’s at the end.
Popularized by George Harrison’s song “The Answer’s at the End” from album Extra Texture, originally from the writings of Sir Frank Crisp, 1st Baronet
When the heat’s got you down
Here’s what you oughta
Get yourself in that cool cool water
(Coolin’ so cool coolin’ me)
Cool cool water
Get yourself in that cool cool water
(Coolin so cool coolin’ me)
Cool cool water
Cool cool cool cool water water
In an ocean or in a glass
Cool water is such a gas
Coolin’ so coolin’ coolin’ me
From the mountains on down to the sea
Cool water keeps on coolin’ me
When the nights are too hot to keep cool
I keep on dreamin’ ‘bout a swimmin’ pool
The Beach Boys
Full sail, waiting for the wind to blow
The wind will blow
Does the silence of the sea sound warning of a storm ahead?
Whispers of the breeze
Stir and disappear, too soft to hear
What’s in store for me?
The Beach Boys
And you know that I’m looking back carefully
”Cause I know that there’s still something there for me
But you said “Morocco” and you made me smile
And it hasn’t been that easy for a long, long while
And looking back into your eyes I saw them really shine
Giving me a taste of something fine
