One day
I know
We'll find
A place of hope

Just hold on to me
Just hold on to me

Walk tight
One line
You're wanted
This time

There's no-one to blame
Just hold on to me

And I'm right on time
And the birds keep singing
And you're right on line
And the bells keep ringing
And the battle is won
And the planes keep winging
And I'm right on time
One day there'll be a place for us
And the girl keeps singing

I walk
I wait
With folded hands
And lonely
I stumble
I stumble

With you
I wait
To be born
Again
With love comes the day
Just hold on to me

And I'm right on time
And the birds keep singing
And you're right on line
One day there'll be a place for us
And the bells keep ringing
And the battle is won
And the planes keep winging
And I'm right on time
One day there'll be a place for us
And the girl keeps singing

Now is
The time
To follow through
To read the signs

Now the
Message is sent
Let's bring it to its final end

And I'm right on time
And the birds keep singing
And you're right on line
One day there'll be a place for us
And the bells keep ringing
And the battle is won
And the planes keep winging
And I'm right on time
One day there'll be a place for us
And the girl keeps singing

And I'm right on time
And the birds keep singing
And you're right on line
One day there'll be a place for us
And the bells keep ringing
And the battle is won
And the planes keep winging
And I'm right on time
One day there'll be a place for us
And the girl keeps singing

One
Day
I
One day there'll be a place for us
Know
There'll be
A place
Called
One day there'll be a place for us

How about anything off of Rid of Me?
Short but very captivating 
Over time, I have noticed
That very few people 
Can do just one line
One of those albums that NEVER grows old. It's the best driving album btw. just set it on repeat and blast through those desert skies. Not to mention her other artistic endeavours with Seamus Heaney for example but I've been obsessed with Polly for 25 years. 
Wow great singer
Oh how I adore this album. One of my favorites.
J'ai toujours aimé cet album. Merci à un pote de l'époque qui me l'avait fait découvrir. Sublime ! Perfect.
Polly Jean is one of my absolute all-time favourite artistes! Been a loyal fan since the early 90's and she has still yet to disappoint. Thanks for playing her songs.
one of the best things about RP is the time span of some of these pics/comments

Love this photo.  PJ is very underrated,...a great musician.

 

 

 


If I was a rock star I would dress like her on stage. Unfortunately...I'm not. {#Frown}

AMAZING album - nuff said.

How old was she when this pic was taken?  She is a grown woman now.  (And still totally HOT, IMHO)

 
The photo was apparently taken sometime between 2002 and 2007, according to the photographer's Flickr page.  So she's at least 32 in the photo.  Quite a good song, by the way.

Sandpaper...?

From the silk of Patty Griffin to the sand paper of PJ. What a beautiful contrast. Thanks, Bill.

Can't believe this album came out 10 years ago. Still sounds amazingly fresh. 10.

Yes, PJ Harvey is yet another talent I was unfamiliar with until RP and with each listen, I find her work more intriguing.

One of my favorite albums.  Great song.

Agreed.  I bow down to the Magnificence that is Polly Jean Harvey.  This album I find especially tasty.

I love it though i think my favourite stuff is the really gritty early stuff.
Excellent tune from a terrific album.  Go Polly Jean.

She's got the weapons and knows how to use them.  Understated perfection.
I liked it in the first place—so much so that I bought the CD.  But she's growing on me.    7 {#Arrow} 8
Awww... I stepped away for a moment and I missed this? {#Cry}

"Breathy" singing?...how would you prefer they inhaled air before releasing a note?...I guess they could stick a hose up their ass and drape it out the window instead. I suggest you try to sing without breathing.

nice pic, send more. PJ is hot!
P J wants my babies well she will when she meets me...

your mom is blah. And why is it everytime we hear a hollow body it just has to sound like U2 or it isn't good? Christ, get over that band, there are so many better ones out there!

Slightly harder! You have no idea. Check out some of her earlier material.
seriously... nothing like sarah mclaughlin. check out Rid of Me. Awesome album

It is so irritating when the high register and the low register sound like two different people and there is no good transition across the middle. Also can't stand breathy singing. Breathiness is just plain bad. That's in the high register. The low register is more talking than singing. Maybe there are actually two singers?

Nothing like a hot chick with a Gibson Firebird.
Talent... She's got it in spades, just like Björk...
She has talent, but this does not show it

Great segue from Robert Plant. She sounds like Sarah McLachlan with a slighty harder edge

Academic comment, yet irrelevant. Some music appeal to my brain, some to my gut. This one is in the latter category. Bottom line, nothing else. Peace out.

Thanks for chiming in, Professor. Now go back to listening to some technically perfect but creatively dull music.
:cool:
Remains one of my favourite albums of all time! :music: Incredible track, thanx Bill!
I love this song !!!
polly jean, will you marry me?
So boring I don't even remember writing this comment.

Aren't we all?
Wow, has she mellowed. I bought the CD with "To Bring You My Love" on it years ago, and it sounded like the ravings of a madwoman. I liked it, but it still sounded like a crazy person.
One of my favorite songs...and one that speaks to me more than any right now. Thanks, RP. Your sets today have been fantastic. You're helping me make it. :good-vibes:
boring.

Are you trying to sound musically educated?
Great song, great album.

Yes, this is a great album... and maybe even more enjoyable than her earlier albums.

I think you can tell the musical taste by the songs rated by Tux... SAY NO MORE!! Rated stuff I wouldn't care to listen to ever again - in my lifetime a "10"... And what's wrong with sounding like U2 anyway? The Edge has more talent in his little piggy toe than most people have in their whole body. IQ and Music do not necessarily have anything to do with one another.

One of the PJ's best songs! Keep 'em comin'

This song has some serious drive. Good pick!
Good ole' Polly Jean. Not my favourite of her tunes, but still a good one.

Agreed. A boring melody.
So what if she does sound like U2? That's not a bad thing if it's true. I would think PJ likes U2 since she opened for them on the Elevation tour in 2001.
I really like this song.I like PJ Harvey. :music:
blah

Polly Jean, be bad.
This probably is her most well-rounded album... Tux might even like it too, since it has a great duet with Thom Yorke... :p

Yeah. Like U2. Very unfortunate. :rolleyes: Seriously, I had the volume down and logged back in to complain about the crappy U2 and found out it was PJ. Sad. Sad. Sad.
Don't hear U2 in there, and I obsess over U2...
