Posts Tagged ‘chronic fatigue’

One of the few things tht I still found some enjoyment in when off work with depression and ME/Chronic Fatigue was music. Having a good, friendly local music venue meant I still managed the odd night out to listen to folk, irish or acoustic performers in a laid-back atmosphere.

When at home I could lie back and relax to celtic, new age or relaxation type sounds on at a low level, especially on those days where I couldn’t concentrate on reading or watching TV.

The other type of music I turned to were songs that inspired me with their lyrics, either to grasp a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel or to physically get me moving.

One of my top songs for this is I should Get Up by Teddy Thompson, who I’m guessing has suffered from depression himself:

Depression looms
I’m such a miserable fool
I stay in bed
I don’t wanna got to school
But I see the sun
is beating down
No excuses from the clouds

I should get up
I should get out
I’m sure there’s something
I can’t do without
I should get up
I should get up
I should get up

I’ve heard it said
that life will pass you by
Live underground pretty soon that’s where you lie
But I feel so warm in my room
I’m safe and sound
inside my tomb

I should get up
I should get out
I’m sure there’s something
I can’t do without
I should get up
I should get up
I should get up

The world goes on without me
I know it
I know it
No one misses
the quiet kid
And there are things
I may have missed
But living ignorance is bliss
I’m so wrapped up in myself
I got no time for
Everyone else

I should get up
I should get out
I’m sure there’s something
I can’t do without
I should get up
I should get up
I should get up
I should go out
I’m sure there’s something
I can’t do without
I should get up
I should get up
I should get up

Has any music inpired or motivated you?
