vienna teng – abound

[posted: ]  [0 comments]

i know i write about vienna teng a lot, but here’s another post about her…

i recently stumbled across a recording of the most romantic song i’ve ever heard. i’m not a very romantically minded person – as far as i can tell – but that song nearly gives me goose bumps and a slight shiver! i’m pretty addicted to that song, listening to it whenever i can, in a 1-song-loop.

[lyrics quote of the moment]
you had asked if i love you
and i never could say
and you want me to answer
in any old way

i’m trying to tell you
simple words could not show
and will never be spoken
still i want you to know

so i ask you to meet me tonight
by the gardens we walk, in the twilight
the roses abound by your side
i will hold you and let you decide
vienna teng – abound (link)

as far as i can remember, a singer/songwriter named alexander sahar wrote the song for vienna, but later she rewrote some of it.

i don’t know how long it will be up there, but you can get the recording here. the link you’re looking for is named “vt2004-12-xxt12.shn”.
the file format is .shn – you’ll need to get the winamp plugin or convert the file to play it.

thank you, michele, for recording and sharing!

i have the weirdest perception of time!

on the one hand it seems like forever and a day since christmas and new year’s eve – i even have a hard time remembering the last thing i did before the weekend started (=friday noon).
on the other hand it seems like yesterday that my family left (=dec. 30th), and tomorrow they’re coming back already.

[lyrics quote of the moment]
you’ve got a journey to make
there’s your horizon to chase
so go far beyond where we stand
no matter the distance
I’m holding your hand
