Song Lyric Sunday – Elgar/Something Inside by Jonathan Rhys Meyers

While I knew right away which movie I was going with, but picking the song was hard because August Rush is so full of amazing songs. I’ve posted before that this is probably my all-time favorite movie, and I even wrote a poem based on one of the scenes in the movie.

What’s not to love about a movie based on a family finding each other through music?  I cried through 90% of the movie when I watched it the first time, and it still manages to get me when I watch it now.  If you haven’t seen it, I would highly suggest watching it.  Then, you can let me know what you think.  I could talk all day about that movie.

It also features Robin Williams which is always a plus, even if he doesn’t play the nicest character.  The strangest part about his character though, is that I agree with a lot of what he says in the movie;  he just has some really bad methods.  I suppose that would be a flawed character whom we love to hate.

I picked the song Something Inside because it is beautiful and I love the overlay of the bass in the beginning and throughout.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Lyrics found at MetroLyrics

When the one thing you’re looking for
Is nowhere to be found
And you back stepping all of your moves
Trying to figure it out
You wanna reach out
You wanna give in
Your head’s wrapped around what’s around the next bend
You wish you could find something warm
‘Cause you’re shivering cold
It’s the first thing you see as you open your eyes
The last thing you say as your saying goodbye
Something inside you is crying and driving you on
It’s the first thing you see as you open your eyes
The last thing you say as your saying goodbye
Something inside you is crying and driving you on

‘Cause if you hadn’t found me
I would have found you
I would have found you

So long you’ve been running in circles
‘Round what’s at stake
But now the times come for your feet to stand still in one place
You wanna reach out
You wanna give in
Your head’s wrapped around what’s around the next bend
You wish you could find something warm
‘Cause you’re shivering cold
It’s the first thing you see as you open your eyes
The last thing you say as your saying goodbye
Something inside you is crying and driving you on
It’s the first thing you see as you open your eyes
The last thing you say as your saying goodbye
Something inside you is crying and driving you on

‘Cause if you hadn’t found me
I would have found you
I would have found you

It was your first taste of love
Living upon what you had

It’s the first thing you see as you open your eyes
The last thing you say as your saying goodbye
Something inside you is crying and driving you on

‘Cause if you hadn’t found me
I would have found you
I would have found you
I would have found you
I would have found you
