Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight Lyrics

Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight Song Lyrics


Once there was a way,
to get back homeward,
Once there was a way,
to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
and I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes,
smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
and I will sing a lullaby

Once there was a way,
to get back homeward,
Once there was a way,
to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry,
and I will sing a lullaby

Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
carry that weight for a long time
Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
carry that weight for a long time

I never give you my pillow,
I only send you my invitations
And in the middle of the celebrations,
I break down

Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
carry that weight for a long time
Boy you're gonna carry that weight,
carry that weight for a long time

Oh yeah, all right,
are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?

Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you

And in the end,
the love you take,
is equal to the love you make,
Ah



About

December, 19th 2016
She has won 37 different awards. The complete list of awards and nominations in which she participated, is the following: Golden Globe Awards, Grammy Award, Grammy Awards, Hollywood Life Awards, Las Vegas Film Critics Association, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, MTV Movie Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, NAACP Image Awards, NAACP Image Awards, NAACP Image Awards, NAACP Image Awards, National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, New York Film Critics Circle, New York Film Critics Online, Oklahoma Film Critics Circle Award, Palm Springs International Film Festival, People's Choice Awards, Satellite Awards, Screen Actors Guild, ShoWest, Soul Train Awards, Southeastern Film Critics Association Awards, St. Louis Gateway Film Critics’ Awards, Teen Choice Awards, The National Society of Film Critics, Vibe Music Awards, and Washington DC Film Critics Association. They are not all associated with her singing career, she's also an actress.
The spring to her career was greatly given by the American Idol show, in which she landed on the 7th place in 2004. The most significant awards she already has include Grammy, Teen Choice Award, Academy Award (given to her as to an actress in a supporting role), British Academy Film award, Screen Actors Guild award, Golden Globe, Satellite award, Los Angeles Film Critics Association award, and New York Film Critics Circle award. This all went to her to the film names ‘Dreamgirls’ in 2006. Despite the fact that ‘Dreamgirls’ was originated as the starring place for Eddie Murphy, Beyonce Knowles, and Jamie Foxx, she performed better than all of them and won numerous awards as the supporting actress. So they must have been ashamed by her. It was her filming debut, after which she started to be engaged closely in filming and on television.
This song wasn’t originally performed by Jennifer Hudson, she only covered it. It originated from 'The Beatles' band in 1979 and it was included in their album named 'Abbey Road'. There are at least thirty only known covers of this song. In the list of names that performed it, are Bee Gees and Phil Collins among the others.
Stop this video at the 6th second and, if you are spoiled enough, just as we are, to see that there is not a sliced in half apple at the face of the music plate; your imagination can drive you crazy by telling you that this is very intimate photo of woman’s legs spread apart. A hole inside of the plate actually almost fits the hole of women's intimate organ that it should be positioned at this place and the entire central composition very-very closely follows the image of what you have been thinking actually (yes, the lower lips). For the first time when we saw this picture, we actually thought how inappropriate this is. And believe it or not, but it took pretty long time to understand that this is actually an apple sliced in half. That spoiled we are.
If to talk about contextual essence of this song, it is somewhat similar with a lullaby. The singer tells his beloved person not to cry, to fall asleep, while he will sing a soothing song for her. This is a perfect thing absolutely in line with the main oeuvre of The Beatles.
