Video of the Week: What I Want

Nora York starts off with Sir Thomas Wyatt’s (The elder) poem “I Find No Peace” to introduce her song:

I FIND no peace, and all my war is done ;
I fear and hope,
I burn, and freeze like ice ;
I fly above the wind, yet can I not arise ;
And nought I have, and all the world I seize upon.

Then it’s off to a spectacular ride with her performance of “What I Want” (music and lyrics here)

I want what I can’t have;
Need what I can’t want;
Have, but I don’t have
what I want.

Can you find the place where your mind won’t stop and your heart says go?
