This from Reba and Kenny to remind us all that sometimes we need to protect what we have from ourselves...

Every Other Weekend

 Quote:
Every Other Weekend
Reba McEntire and Kenny Chesney

(Reba)
Every Other Friday
It's toys and clothes and backpacks
Is everybody in?
Ok lets go see dad
Same time in the same spot
Corner of the same old parking lot
Half the hugs and kisses
There are always sad
We trade a couple words and looks and kids again
Every Other Weekend

(Kenny)
Every Other Weekend
Very few exceptions
I pick up the love we made in both my arms
It's movies on the sofa
Grilled cheese and cut the crust off
"But that's not the way mom makes it daddy" breaks my heart
I miss everything I use to have with her again
Every Other Weekend

(Kenny)
But I can't tell her I love her

(Reba)
I can't tell him I love him

(Kenny)
Cause there's too many questions and

(Both)
Ears in the car

(Reba)
So I don't tell him I miss him

(Kenny)
I don't tell her I need her

(Both)
She's(He's) over me, that's where we are

(Kenny)
So we're as close as we might ever be again

(Both)
Every Other Weekend

(Reba)
Every Other Saturday
First thing in the mornin'
I turn the TV on to make the quiet go away
I know why, but I don't know why
We ever let this happen
Fallin' for forever was a big mistake
There's so much not to do, and all day not to do it in
Every Other Weekend

(Kenny)
Every Other Sunday
I empty out my backseat
While my children hug their mother in the parking lot
We don't touch
We don't talk much
Maybe goodbye to each other
Then she drives away with every piece of heart I've got
I reconvince myself we did the right thing
Every Other Weekend

(Kenny)
So I can't tell her I love her

(Reba)
I can't tell him I love him

(Kenny)
Cause there's too many questions and

(Both)
Ears in the car

(Reba)

(Kenny)
So we're as close as we might ever be again

(Both)

(Kenny)
Yeah for fifteen minutes we're a family again

(Reba)
God I wish that he was still with me again

This from Casting Crowns to remind us where our real strength comes from...

Praise You In This Storm

 Quote:
I was sure by now
God you would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say “Amen”, and it’s still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as You mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
Every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can’t find You

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
Every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth

I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
Every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

In honor of those fighting for recovery.

"Make You Feel My Love" by Adele

When the rain
Is blowing in your face
And the whole world
Is on your case
I could offer you
A warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
And there is no one there
To dry your tears
I could hold you
For a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you
Haven't made
Your mind up yet
But I would never
Do you wrong
I've known it
From the moment
That we met
No doubt in my mind
Where you belong

I'd go hungry
I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling
Down the avenue
No, there's nothing
That I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging
On the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
Though winds of change
Are throwing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing
Like me yet

I could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends
Of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love

This from Susan Ashton to remind us to keep moving forward rather than allow ourselves to get lost in our self-pity.

Walk On

 Quote:
Some find their solace in a bottle of gin
Some find it still better when their horse comes in
It's a way to deal when life ain't grand
You just a-pack-it-up, hang your head and fold your hands.

Hmmm, hmmm.

She worked all day long on a street named Despair
In a town with no pity, she was going nowhere
Well, funny how her heart, well, it grew colder and colder
With the weight of the world crashing down on her shoulder.

But when the going gets tough and the tough are long gone, just.

Chorus:
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah!

You can take your words made of psycho-babble
I don't need no shrink to see my life's unraveled
Pay you a mountain of gold to candy coat me lies
I'm at the end of my rope, time I realize.

That when the going gets tough and the tough are long gone, just
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on, Who-oh!

Chorus:
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! yeah, yeah!

Well, I know we ain't seeing the best of times
And I long stopped dreaming those crazy dreams of mine
These days get so long, and my heart grows weak
And honey, we ain't living on no easy street.

But when the going gets tough and the tough are long gone
It's just a-you-and-me, baby, left to walk on!

Chorus:
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Chorus:
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Walk on, walk on, walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on, yeah, yeah, yeah!...

I used to sing this one to Skald when he was still fogging.

Hot N' Cold - Katy Perry

You change your mind
Like a girl changes clothes
Yeah you, PMS
Like a b****
I would know

And you always think
Always speak
Crypticly

I should know
That you're no good for me

Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

You, You don't really want to stay, no
You, but you don't really want to go-o
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down

We used to be
Just like twins
So in sync
The same energy
Now's a dead battery
Used to laugh bout nothing
Now your plain boring

I should know that
you're not gonna change

Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

You, You don't really want to stay, no
You, but you don't really want to go-o
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down

Someone call the doctor
Got a case of a love bi-polar
Stuck on a roller coaster
Can't get off this ride

You change your mind
Like a girl changes clothes

Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

You, you don't really want to stay, no
You, but you don't really want to go-o
You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down

Uy, Mark I almost throwed up reading that! Ugh! I actually accidentally saw this video last year during Plan B. Holy cow.

Anyway I don't have a linky or lyrics but lately I've really been liking Beyonce's "If I Were a Boy" lately. HA!

This song rocks!

"Gives You Hell" - All American Rejects

I wake up every evening, with a big smile on my face
And it never feels out of place

And your still probably working at a 9 to 5 pace
I wonder how bad that tastes

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell

Now where's your picket fence love
And where's that shiny car,
And did it ever get you far

You've never seem so tense love
I've never seen you fall so hard,
Do you even know where you are

And truth be told I miss you
And truth be told I'm lying

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
If you find a man that's worth a damn and treats you well
Then he's a fool, you're just as well, hope it gives you hell

Hope it gives you hell

Tomorrow you'll be thinking to yourself
Yeah, Where'd it all go wrong, the list goes on and on

And truth be told I miss you
And truth be told I'm lying

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
If you find a man that's worth a damn and treats you well
Then he's a fool, you're just as well, hope it gives you hell

Now you'll never see, what you've done to me
You can take back your memories they're no good to me
And here's all your lies,
You can look me in the eyes
With that sad sad look that you wear so well

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
If you find a man that's worth a damn and treats you well
Then he's a fool, you're just as well, hope it gives you hell

When you see my face
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way
Hope it gives you hell
Hope it gives you hell
When you hear this song and sing along, oh you'll never tell
Then you're the fool, I'm just as well
Hope it gives you hell
When you hear this song I hope that it will give you hell
And when you sing along I hope that it puts you through hell

There's always room for Kate!

It doesn't hurt me.
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know that it doesn't hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?
You, its you and me.

And if I only could,
Id make a deal with god,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
If I only could, oh...

You don't want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder.
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts.

Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?
You, it's you and me.
Its you and me wont be unhappy.

And if I only could,
Id make a deal with god,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building,
Say, if I only could, oh...

You,
It's you and me,
It's you and me wont be unhappy.

C'mon, baby, c'mon darling,
Let me steal this moment from you now.
C'mon, angel, c'mon, c'mon, darling,
Lets exchange the experience, oh...

And if I only could,
I'd make a deal with god,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

And if I only could,
I''d make a deal with god,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

And if I only could,
I'd make a deal with god,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

If I only could
Be running up that hill
With no problems...

If you guys are gonna add songs here, at least link the songs so folks can hear what they sound like. Frankly, some of the lyrics are only memorable for a line or two.

This is not an indictment of a specific song nor of a genre of music, since until we can HEAR the music we have no idea what type it even is...

So, if the song is available somewhere, link it so we can HEAR the song. Don't bother to link to a subscription service like iTunes, Rhapsody, etc, since most folks won't be able to access what you pulled up under your account. Test your links before you hit <SUBMIT>. Also, don't link to down-loadable files on a peer to peer sharing site. That will get us all in trouble.

I also would ask that if you quote lyrics here that you indicate that they are a quote. Since lyrics are available in so many places on the web it is easy to copy and paste, but I have found that many of the sites have lyrics that are posted by users and are not always accurate. So before I post the lyrics, I read them while listening to the song and have found errors even in the few I have posted.

Songs without music are merely poems and while maybe beautifully written, thought provoking and expressive of our feelings are not really songs at all. Only when they are sung with music do they become songs.

So post anything you think is of value, but let us hear the song and be sure to check the lyrics for accuracy before posting.

WORDS+MUSIC=SONG

So SONG-MUSIC=WORDS

And we have plenty of words around here...

Just read any of MY posts...

I can't tell any of you what or how to post but I did start this thread and ask that it be kept to songs and not just lyrics.

Let's Be Us Again by Lonestar

The great part is that we are "us" again now...Only better! \:\)

Tell me what I have to do tonight
'Cause I'd do anything to make it right
Let's be us again

I'm sorry for the way I lost my head
I don't know why I said the things I said
Let's be us again

Here I stand
With everything to lose
And all I know is I don't want to ever see the end
Baby please, I'm reaching out for you
Won't you open up your heart and let me come back in
Let's be us again

Oh us again

Look at me, I'm way past pride
Isn't there some way that we can try
To be us again
Even if it takes a while
I'll wait right here until I see that smile
That says we're us again

Here I stand
With everything to lose
And all I know is I don't want to ever see the end
Baby please, I'm reaching out for you
Won't you open up your heart and let me come back in
Let's be us

Baby baby what would I do
I can't imagine life without you

Here I stand
With everything to lose
And all I know is I don't want to ever see the end
Baby please, I'm reaching out for you
Won't you open up your heart and let me come back in

Oh, here I am
I'm reaching out for you
So won't you open up your heart and let me come back in
Let's be us again

Oh let's be us again


How'd I do, Mark? Do I get an "A" for song posting?

Just for fun and a reminder that we agreed to give some things up when we got married... Remember the line "forsaking all others" in your vows?

From The Oak Ridge Boys

Hard to Be Cool In A Minivan

 Quote:

Sittin’ at a red light, down around Sunset
A girl pulled up beside me in a candy-apple red Corvette
She pulled down her shades, gave me a wink
I gave her a little smile back
Then she laughed as she hit the gas
I remembered where I was at

Chorus
(‘Cause) It’s hard to be cool when you’re behind the wheel
Of an eight passenger automobile
In a big bubble, cruisin’ down the street
With Barney blarin’ and a baby seat
Hey it can be done, but I’m tellin’ you man
It’s hard to be cool in a minivan.

I used to have a souped-up hotrod,
Man I spared no costs
284, four-on-the-floor, headers and dual-exhaust
About the time the family came, well, that’s the first thing that went
The preacher said, “for better or worse,”
Now I know what he meant

Chorus
(‘Cause) It’s hard to be cool when you’re behind the wheel
Of an eight passenger automobile
In a big bubble, cruisin’ down the street
With Barney blarin’ and a baby seat
Hey it can be done, but I’m tellin’ you man
It’s hard to be cool in a minivan.

Now, I wouldn’t change my life a bit
I’m a lucky man I know
Just wish my wife and kids could fit
In a ’67 GTO.

Chorus
(‘Cause) It’s hard to be cool when you’re behind the wheel
Of an eight passenger automobile
In a big bubble, cruisin’ down the street
With Barney blarin’ and a baby seat
Hey it can be done, but I’m tellin’ you man
It’s hard to be cool in a minivan.

Come on boys, Can I hear an amen
It’s hard to be cool in a minivan.

The past three months, I've downloaded two possible ringtones for my phone. I'm currently using "Bargain" by The Who. The lyrics to that tune is the fourth post in this thread, in case anyone's interested. It's a positive song.

The other song is if everything does a swirly. It's kinda nasty, but sums things up for many here, unfortunately.

"One More Time" by Lynyrd Skynyrd

"One More Time"
Lyrics by Ronnie Van Zant

How can you stand there smilin'
After all you've done
You know it seems to make you happy
When you've hurt someone
Twice before you fooled me
With your deceivin' and lyin'
Come in and close the door
One more time, one more time

Yeah you've been gone so long
No one knows where
And you say that you still love me
Then show me you care
'Cause you got what it takes sweet mama
To make a man feel fine
So I'll take the word of a liar
One more time, one more time

Girl you've got me hungry
Losin' my mind
I know I'm playin' with fire
Get burned everytime
Yes I'm a fool for you baby I can't deny
But I got to have your sweet love
One more time, one more time

Girl you've got me hungry
Losin' my mind
I know I'm playin' with fire
I get burned everytime
Yes I'm a fool for you mama I can't deny
But I got to have your sweet love
One more time, one more time

Yes I'm her fool once more
I can read her brown eyes
But when the rooster crows tomorrow
Well its her turn to cry
I'm headed down that old road
She lost her free ride
So tonight I'll take what I paid for
One more time, one more time
One more time

"Broken" - Lifehouse

 Quote:
The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight
Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time
I am here still waiting though I still have my doubts
I am damaged at best, like you've already figured out

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain there is healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on, I'm holdin' on
I'm barely holdin' on to you

The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head
I tried my best to be guarded, I'm an open book instead
And I still see your reflection inside of my eyes
That are looking for purpose, they're still looking for life

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain is the healing
In your name I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin')
I'm barely holdin' on to you

I'm hangin' on another day
Just to see what you will throw my way
And I'm hangin' on to the words you say
You said that I will, will be ok

The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, having forgot my way home

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating
In the pain, there is healing
In your name, I find meaning
So I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin')
I'm barely holdin' on to you
I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm holdin' on (I'm still holdin'), I'm baely holdin' on to you

OK. So I've been slackin'...

Here's a real moldy oldie to cry by...

From The Animals:

Bring It On Home

 Quote:
If you ever change your mind
About leavin', leavin' me behind
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin'
Bring it on home to me, oh yeah

You know I laughed when you left
But now I know I've only hurt myself
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin'
Bring it on home to me, yeah ...

I'll give you jewellery, money too
And that's not all, all I'll do for you
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin'
Bring it on home to me, yeah...

You know I'll always be your slave
Till I'm dead and buried in my grave
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin'
Bring it on home to me, yeah ...

If you ever change your mind
About leavin', leavin' me behind
Oh, oh, bring it to me
Bring your sweet lovin'
Bring it on home to me, yeah ...

I know my mullet will be showing after this one...

Warrant - Heaven

 Quote:
I've got a picture of your house
And you're standing by the door
It's black and white and faded,
It's looking pretty worn.
See the factory that i worked
Silhouetted in the back.
Memories are grey, but man they're really coming back.
I don't need to be the king of the world
As long as i'm the hero of this little girl

Chorus:
Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it everyday
And no matter what your friends might say

How i love the way you move
And the sparkle in your eyes
There's a color deep inside the night like a blue suburban sky
When i come home late at night
And you're in bed asleep
Now i wrap my arms around you so i can feel you breathe

I don't need to be a superman
As long as you will always be my biggest fan

Chorus:
Heaven isn't too far away
Closer to it everyday
And no matter what your friends might say
We'll find our way
Now the lights are going out,
Along the boulevard
Memories come rushing back and makes it pretty hard
I've got nowhere left to go
And no one really cares
I don't know what to do
But im never giving up on you

Here is one that really gets me...it is about betrayal, but not necessarily affairs, though it can certainly be applied to how the BS feel. At least to how I feel....

There are a few lines in this song that really hit home. I've highlighted them:

"Kristy, are you doing ok?" by The Offspring

There's a moment in time
And it's stuck in my mind
Way back, when we were just kids

Cause your eyes told the tale
Of an act of betrayal
I knew that somebody did

Oh, waves of time
Seem to wash away
The scenes of our crimes
For you this never ends

Can you stay strong?
Can you go on?
Kristy are you doing okay?
A rose that won't bloom
Winter's kept you
Dont waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away


Though the marks on your dress
Had been neatly repressed
I knew that something was wrong
And I should have spoke out
And I'm so sorry now
I didn't know
Cause we were so young

Oh, clouds of time
Seem to rain on
Innocence left behind
And it never goes away


Can you stay strong?
Can you go on?
Kristy are you doing okay?
A rose that wont bloom
Winter's kept you
Dont waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away

Oh, clouds of time
Seem to rain on
Innocence left behind
And it never goes away

Can you stay strong?
Can you go on?
Kristy are you doing okay?
A rose that won't bloom
Winter's kept you
Dont waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away

Don't waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away

This song carried me through my darkest hours when I had absolutely no one. I begged Jesus to forgive me for my infidelity and this song I felt was written for me during that time. It still brings tears to my eyes.

High Flight Society "Sweet Redeemer"

I only wanna stand up, move on
Stand up and know
I’m redeemed

One last time is one more lie that I tell myself
As I’m giving in
I can feel the shame from these broken claims
God forgive me for pushing you aside

Speak to me now
Bring me home
Speak to me now

I only wanna stand up, move on
Stand up and know
I’m redeemed

One last try is all I’ve got left inside of me
Without you by my side
I have tried in vein to hold fast my claims
God forgive me for pushing you aside

Sweet Redeemer
Sweet Redeemer
Speak to me speak to me
Sweet Redeemer
