Said it all...and Patience

I'm going to let the loves of my life, the kings of pop, do the talking for me tonight. That's Take That by the way, the most wondrous band in all the world.

Two songs by them, that some people may think are about love and relationships. But for me, they're not about that at all. The songs seem to put into words a lot of how I'm feeling right now. About my battle, my war against depression. And how I feel like an empty, broken shell.

Also the videos for both songs seem to hold some sort of significance for me. Especially in the first video. The masks, pretending to be something else, acting a part, pretending to be happy. And then stripping back that mask, underneath the layers, the truth, your inner self, can finally be revealed.

The second video also holds strong visual links for me. Walking through a wilderness. Lost in the darkness, unsure about where to go next, struggling through the unknown.

Have a listen...have a read...I've highlighted in bold the words that really stand out to my little brain...

Said It All lyricsSongwriters: Barlow, Gary; Donald, Howard; Orange, Jason; Owen, Mark; Robson, Steve;
 When the tears fall away,
And there's no conversation.
There's nothing left to break,
That's not already broken.

You're staring into space,
And every inch of silence.
Been standing here for days,And days.

Said it all,
Nothing to say at all,
Nothing to say that matters,
Haven't we heard enough?

Said it all,
Nothing to say at all,
Nothing to say that matters,
Doesn't matter, anymore.
In the sudden light of day,
No weight of expectation.
The hurt begins to fade,
As you find a new direction.
Been talking here for days,
And days, and days.

Said it all,
Nothing to say at all,
Nothing to say that matters,
Doesn't matter, anymore.

All of the miles of words we've spoken
All of the lines that got away,
Didn't we take the time to say them all?

All of the miles of words we've spoken,
All of the lines that got away,
Didn't we take the time to say them all?

Said it all,
Nothing to say at all,
Nothing to say that matters,
Haven't we heard enough?

Said it all,
Nothing to say at all,
Nothing to say that matters.
Haven't we said it all.

Patience lyrics
Just have a little patience,I'm still hurting from a love I lost.
I'm feeling your frustration,
Any minute all the pain will stop.

Just hold me close inside your arms tonight
Don't be too hard on my emotions.

'Cause I,
Need time,
My heart is numb, has no feeling,
So while I'm still healing,
Just try and have a little patience.

I really wanna start over again.I know you wanna be my salvation,
The one that I can always depend.

I'll try to be strong,
Believe me I'm trying to move on,
It's complicated but understand me.

'Cause I,
Need time,
My heart is numb, has no feeling
So while I'm still healing,
Just try and have a little patience.

'Cause the scars run so deep
It's been hard,

 But I have to believe.

Just have a little patience.


Have a little patience.
My heart is numb, has no feeling,
So while I’m still healing,
Just try and have a little patience.
