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?
