“Something, you give me something
That special something no one ever could
And if there's one thing I know, yeah
I know that you're the one
Leaving me open
I'm floating for your love
You're asking me if I love you
I do, I do, I do (I do, I do)” @realevanross & @ashleesimpsonross
Cant wait for this to be our wedding song.....i do!
My Challenge song, You Give Me Something by James Morrison, has been a song I’ve been working on to improve my tone, vowel modifications and pitch. I started playing this song 4 years ago. First off in G# Major just praying I’d hit the high G#, then moved to A, then last year B Flat, now very comfortably B Major, by Xmas I’m determined to get it to C Major and nail the prick. My voice is getting stronger and higher and I’ve never enjoyed singing as much as I do now. I know I’ve got a long way to go to keep learning and improving, and that excites me and keeps me motivated. The mentality of ‘I’m a guitarist who also sings’ is slowly shifting to ‘I’m a vocalist/guitarist’. @jamesmorrisonok thank you for your soulful voice, you’re a master.
“Let us choose one another as companions
Let us sit at each other’s feet
Inwardly we have many memories - think not
That we are only what we see”
August 19th 2017 - August 19th 2018
In our first year of marriage, we have lived up to our name, both you and I, travelling the world, spreading love and loving each other more and more.
Being married as changed us: it’s changed you, I see it. It’s changed me: I feel stronger, better, closer to you. We are more than just husband & wife, we are soulmates and you run through me like blood through my veins and like the air that I breathe.
In this last year, you have given me more reasons to love you than I imagined.
I have hated you too and I still hate you for not being able to live without you.
You are the stars to my night, you are the reason I believe in kindness, you make me feel FREE.
Thanks to you, I am.
One of the best feeling in life ever, is being able to feel safe, secure, free, and immensely grateful, humble, complete, happy. Think of us riding on the small roads of Santorini by night, me behind your back, feeling like nothing could hurt us, opening my arms wide and looking at the sky and the stars thanking the higher powers for all this life, all this love... Happy first anniversary Mr Manin, I love you.
James Morrison (born James Morrison Catchpole; 13 August 1984) is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist from Rugby, Warwickshire. In 2006, his debut single "You Give Me Something" became a hit in Europe, Australia, Japan and Iran peaking in the top five in the UK and claiming the number 1 spot in New Zealand. His debut album, Undiscovered, debuted at the top of the UK Albums Chart. In 2007 Morrison won the Brit Award for Best British Male.
Morrison has alluded to an unhappy childhood affected by poverty and illness; he said of his hometown "the best thing is I've got memories of being a kid there and the worst thing is I've got memories of being a kid there." When Morrison was only a few weeks old, he contracted whooping cough and was given a 30% chance of survival from doctors, who believed that if he survived, he would be severely brain damaged. He states that he "went blue and stopped breathing and [doctors] had to resuscitate me four times." After the experience, his parents divorced when he was four years old and he suffered from low self esteem at school, where he was ostracized for being involved in music rather than sports. He finally gained confidence when he moved to Cornwall as a teenager, where people were more accepting of his musical inclinations.
