Welcome home dad. I know it's going to be a long road to recovery, but you're strong & we'll all be right there with you. Played your favorite..."In My Life" as you were wheeled in & it was go

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn

“I’m cynical about things that are taken for granted: society, politics, newspapers, government; but I’m not cynical about life, love, goodness, death.”

"We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it".

"I'm done being a mop-top. We gave of ourselves for ten years. If you feel like being nostalgic you've got all the records. Put them on any time you want and get nostalgic. We've grown up. We're getting on with our lives. Get on with yours."

“Trying to please everybody is impossible – if you did that, you’d end up in the middle with nobody liking you. You’ve just got to make the decision about what you think is your best and do it"

"I used to hide my real emotions in gobbledegook, like in 'In His Own Write.' When I wrote teenage poems, I wrote in gobbledegook because I was always hiding my real emotions from Mimi."

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
'Til the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
'Til you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me
If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me

Some wonderful quotes but I've always wondered if the one about telling the teachers they don't understand life is true? It's just always sounded...I dunno...I just don't buy that he said it for some reason. Happy to be proven wrong.

I'll check to see if it's possible to authenticate the quote Phil. I got it off a Beatles-related website, but I'll do some digging.

Can’t tell you how much I love that one.

It's a powerful song, no doubt. Anyone can contribute, BTW. Feel free.

Got millions of things floating around my head Dan, but I did not want to intrude in your thread, so here goes : -

He's a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody

Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere Man, please listen
You don't know what you're missing
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command

He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?

Nowhere Man, don't worry
Take your time, don't hurry
Leave it all till somebody else lends you a hand

Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere Man, please listen
You don't know what you're missing
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command

He's a real Nowhere Man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody

 

And unlike many people I also liked the version Randy Travis did at the tribite in Liverpool in 1990, great concert.

"Close your eyes
Have no fear
The monster's gone
He's on the run and your daddy's here
 
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
 
Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way, it's getting better and better
 
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
 
Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But I guess we'll both just have to be patient
'Cause it's a long way to go
A hard row to hoe
Yes, it's a long way to go
But in the meantime
 
Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans
 
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
 
Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way, it's getting better and better
 
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Darling, darling, darling
Darling Sean"

I used to play and sing that for my eldest son when he was small, couple of weeks ago we were at the pub watching the football, after the game he put some tunes on the jukebox, this was one of them, proud moment.

'Liverpool is cosmopolitan, and it's where the sailors would come home with blues records from America. Liverpool has the biggest country & western following in England besides London because there is more of it there.'

Help! I need somebody
Help! Not just anybody
Help! You know I need someone
Help!

(When) When I was younger (When I was young) so much younger than today
(I never need) I never needed anybody's help in any way
(Now) But now these days are gone (These days are gone) and I'm not so self assured
(And now I find) Now I find I've changed my mind, I've opened up the doors

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being 'round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me?

(Now) And now my life has changed (My life has changed) in oh so many ways
(My independence) My independence seems to vanish in the haze
(But) But ev'ry now (Every now and then) and then I feel so insecure
(I know that I) I know that I just need you like I've never done before

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being 'round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me?

When I was younger, so much younger than today

And I do appreciate you being 'round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me?

Help me, help me
Ooh
