I’ll choose the words and how the melody goes

All I do is think of you
All I do is think of you

I don’t care how long this lasts
We have no future, we have no past
I write this now while I’m in control
I’ll choose the words and how the melody goes
Along winding streets we walked hand in hand

And how I long for that sharp wind
To take my breath away again
I run my fingers through your hair
Hair like a wheatfield, I’d run through
That I’d run through

And I miss you so
And I miss you so
Now you’re gone, I feel so alone
Oh I miss you so

Send you a flower
A sunflower bright
‘Cause you cloud my days
Messin’ up my nights
And all the way up
To the top of your head
Sunshower kisses I felt we had

And I miss you so
Oh baby, I miss you so
Now your gone, I feel so low
Oh I miss you so, I do

But I miss you so
Oh darling, I miss you so
Now your gone, I feel so low
Oh said I miss you so, I do

All I gotta do is think of you
And I miss you so
Baby I’m, I’m afraid to say why
Oh ’cause I miss you so
Baby I’m, I’m afraid to say why
Oh and I miss you so

Sunflower, Paul Weller, Wild Wood – 1993

2007 and I jumped on a plane to Geneva. Four days roaming around this Swiss town listening to this song on repeat on my little green iPod. I cannot hear this song without thinking of Jet D’eau and how cold it was! I went to the UN buildings and  stood under huge chair. I was working as a registrar in Hackney – the first of a series of challenging registrar posts and this holiday was a badly needed break from trouble and strife. I think I was a little lonely but it also allowed me a little head space to work out my ‘issues’ at the time. I came back refreshed and ready for battle.
