Dido - Sand in my shoes

Two weeks away it feels like the world should've changed
But I'm home now
And things still look the same
I think I'll leave it to tomorrow till unpack
Try to forget for one more night
That I'm back in my flat on the road
Where the cars never stop going through the night
To real life where I can't watch sunset
I don't have time
I don't have time

I've still got sand in my shoes
And I can't shake the thought of you

I shake it all, forget you
Why, why would I want to
I know we said goodbye

Anything else would've been confused but I wanna see you again

Tomorrow's back to work down to sanitation
should've run back ?? before I left here
Try to Mama show her that I was happy here
Before I knew that I could get on the plane and fly away

From the road where the cars never stop going through the night
To real life where I can't watch sunset
And take my time
Take up our time


I wanna see you again
Two weeks away, all it takes to change in time around by falling

I walked away and never said that I wanted to see again

[Chorus x2]

I wanna see you again
I wanna see you again

When I came home from Malaysia, I listened to this song quite a few times. At this time it was because of that "holiday topic" that is covered in the lyrics of this song: You return home and you still feel the warmth of the holidays. Listening to this song I felt that warmth. So I attributed quite some good feelings to this song. My friends in BA and my family helped my to feel the warmth of home, after I had returned and the visions of what I had lost softly blurred...

Listening to this song now... gets me almost to hate it. Feelings about "wanderlust " and love are something completely different..

    I though it would be nice to gather the songs that I listened to most in 2006. I blogged about a few of them, and those articles are linked. The list is not exactly accurate, since I started using last-fm which helped to create it in March. The list is
