This has always been one of my favorites:

Your Song - Elton John

 Quote:
Its a little bit funny this feeling inside
Im not one of those who can easily hide
I dont have much money but boy if I did
Id buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
I know its not much but its the best I can do
My gift is my song and this ones for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that its done
I hope you dont mind
I hope you dont mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while youre in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well theyve got me quite cross
But the suns been quite kind while I wrote this song
Its for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see Ive forgotten if theyre green or theyre blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes Ive ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that its done
I hope you dont mind
I hope you dont mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while youre in the world

I hope you dont mind
I hope you dont mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while youre in the world

Fast Enough For You ~ Phish

If time were only part of the equation
Then you could draw the bound'ries of our cage
You wouldn't pile another stone upon me
And I'd be happy just to watch you age

But everything is in its own dominion
And waiting in the shallows as I do
Appeases me as water slowly trickles out
Which isn't nearly fast enough for you

It isn't nearly fast enough for you
It isn't nearly fast enough for you
Its what I was afraid of
I stumble into view
But it isn't nearly fast enough for you
It isn't nearly fast enough for you

"Me" by Paula Cole (from This Fire, 1996)

I am not the person who is singing,
I am the silent one inside.
I am not the one who laughs at people's jokes,
I just pacify their egos.
I am not my house, my car or my songs,
They are only stops along my way.
I am like the winter, I'm a dark cold female,
With a golden ring of wisdom in my cave.

(chorus)

And it's me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence

I am carrying my voice
I am carrying my heart.
I am carrying my rhythm
I am carrying my prayers,
But you can't kill my spirit, it's old and it is strong,
And like a mountain I'll go on and on.
But when my wings are folded,
The brightly colored moth blends into the dirt into the ground

And it's me who is my enemy.
Me who beats me up.
Me who makes the monsters.
Me who strips my confidence.
And it's me who's too weak,
And it's me who's too shy to ask for the thing I love.
But I love

I am walking on the bridge,
I am over the water,
And I'm scared as hell
But I know there's something better.

Just for fun, this from Brad Paisley for my fellow fisherman:

I'm Gonna Miss Her

 Quote:
Well I love her
But I love the fish
I spend all day out on this lake
And hell is all I catch
But today she met me at the door
Said I would have to choose
If I hit that fishin' hole today
She'd be packin' all her things and she'd
be gone by noon

Well I'm gonna miss her
When I get home
Right now I'm on this lakeshore
And I'm sittin' in the sun
I'm sure it'll hit me
When I walk through that door tonight
Ya I'm gonna miss her
Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite

Now there's a chance
If I hurry
I could beg her to stay
That water's right
And the weather's perfect
No tellin' what I might catch today

So I'm gonna miss her
When I get home
Right now I'm on this lakeshore
And I'm sittin' in the sun
I'm sure it'll hit me
When I walk throught that door tonight
Ya I'm gonna miss her
Oh, lookie there, another bite.

Ya I'm gonna miss her
Oh, lookie there, I've got a bite.

For you guys that have decided to move and and found someone else I offer this from Steve Holy:

Brand New Girlfriend

 Quote:
[verse: 1]
She said, "I need some time to find myself,
I need a little space to think.
Maybe we should start seeing other people.
Baby, things are moving way too fast for me."
So, I picked up what was left of my pride,
And I put on my walking shoes,
And I got up on that high road,
And I did what any gentleman would do..
I, um...

[chorus]
I got a brand new girlfriend.
We went and jumped off the deep end,
Flew out to LA for the weekend,
Spent the whole day lyin' on the beach,
Wearin' nothin' but a smile,
Playin' kissy-kissy, smoochy-smoochy,
Talkin' mooshy-mooshy 'bout nothin'.
Man, I think I'm on to somethin',
Ya know I feel just like a kid again.
I got a brand new girlfriend.

[verse: 2]
I love it when she calls me buttercup
She laughs and says I left the toilet seat up
She pops the top for me a cold beer
And says my buddy's always welcome here.
When I get hungry, she takes me out.
I'm ridin' shotgun like a [censored] hound.
My tails a waggin', my tung hangin' out
It makes me wanna shout...

[chorus]

Wooo...
Cute, cute, cute...

She likes to write our names in the sand.
Shes hearing wedding bells and making plans.
Shes gonna hang around a while I guess.
She hasn't even told me she loves me yet.

[chorus]

She makes me feel just like a kid again,
I gotta brand new girlfriend.

I sent Skald the lyrics to this song when I was trying to explain to him the addiction aspect of the A. He had always loved this song, but reading the lyrics and thinking about what I was trying to tell him, it really opened his eyes.


That's Why I'm Here - Kenny Chesney

 Quote:
Well I ain't had nothing to drink
I knew thats probably what you'd think
If I dropped by this time of night
Remember way back when
I promised you I'd drop in
At one of those meetings down at the Y

Well, they started talkin bout steps you take
Mistakes you make
The hearts you break
And the price you pay
I almost walked away

You could hear a pin drop
When this old man
Stood up and said I'm gonna' say it again
Like I do every week
For those who don't know me

It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most, when you lose control
And everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
Yeah, I've been there, that's why I'm here

This ol’ boy stood up in the aisle
Said he'd been living a life of denial
And he cried as he talked about wasted years
I couldn't believe what I heard
It was my life word for word
And all of the sudden it was clear

It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most, when you lose control
And everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
Yeah, I've been there, that's why I'm here

I know for us it may be too late
But it would mean the world to me
If you were there when I stand to say
It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most, when you lose control
And everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
Yeah, I've been there, that's why I'm here
Oh, I've been there, that's why I'm here

It's the end of the week. Put on you vans and legwarmers, hop on your tractor, and I'll meet y'all in the barn.

"Footloose" by Kenny Loggins (1984)

I been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours. For what?
Oh, tell me what I got

I get this feeling
That time's just holding me down
I'll hit the ceiling
Or else I'll tear up this town

Tonight I gotta cut

(Chorus)
Loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me offa my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

You're playing so cool
Obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart
You're burning, yearning for some

Somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try
You can fly if you'd only cut

(Chorus)
Loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Oohwee, Marie
Shake it,shake it for me
Oh Milo
C'mon C'mon let's go
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

FIRST - We got to turn you around
SECOND - You put your feet on the ground
THIRD - Now take a hold of your soul
FOUR - Whooooooooa, I'm turning it loose,

(Chorus)
footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me offa my knees
Jack, get back
C'mon before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

Van Haggar,that's right.....I said it. VAN HAGGAR!!!!!!

This song came out when I was a Senior in High School and ALWAYS makes me happy. I was an Honor Student with a partially shaved head, ripped up jeans (before they were able called "distressed") safety pins in my ears and pink in my hair.

Van Halen "5150"

The love in me is never straight and narrow

Unless the love is tried and true

You take a chance with new beginnings

Still we try, win or lose, take the highs

With the blues

Chorus:

Always one more, you're never satisfied

Never one for all, only one for me

So why draw the line, meet you half the way

If you don't know what that means

I feel like running politician

Just trying to please all thetime

I give you my share with no conditions

Going wide, running long, feeling lost

But not for a long

Chorus

Solo

Nice one, Sparkaroo. I remember the song and the album well. Driving out of town after my sophomore year of college, knowing I wasn't going to see some friends who had graduated for a long time, if ever. So I cranked the cassette stereo (yes, cassette) in my little Honda, windows down, and sang as loud as I could to distract the tears.

Saw Van Hagar in concert in Portland. (Sammy has many great concert memories for me, including it being at a Hagar show in '83 when I fell in like with my H. But enough about me.)

Click here for video of "5150" by Van Halen. (1986) It's live footage and the only I could find.

Oh geez did THAT bring back some memories!!! I still listen to that record with the same enthusiasm as I did back then.

I had tickets to that concert AND the homecoming game but missed it because I spent the weekend in the hospital to have my appendix removed. I was so upset!

Sammy is a pretty cool dude no matter what band he's in. Montrose, solo, Van Halen it's ALL good!

My iPod just threw out a good one that I haven't heard in a while. Spartan and I actually have a really great memory attached to this artist's CD. We went to a friend of ours' wedding at their lake house and they were playing one of is CD's (which I had bought some time ago). At the time, our DS2 was only 6 months old and I was still nursing. It was the first time I left him at home with a sitter and I forgot my breast pump and well......you nursing mom's know what's up. I got so miserably full, I grabbed Spartan and he to to be the baby! We still crack up about that!!

Duncan Shiek "Shine Inside"

Are you aware? when you just stare,
for hours, into the sky
what do you see? can you show it to me
the beauty...

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world - see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
I want to see the world through your eyes

I watch you breathe, sitting under the tree
the peace that you find
you take my hand, waves crash on the sand
what's done - left behind

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world - see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
how it shines

scene changes, rearranges
oh nature's song
the river is fire the river is water
the river is sweet sweet wine

is it the time? is there a sign?
how do I find your state of mind

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world - see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
how it shines

scene changes, rearranges
oh nature's song
I'm seeing, I'm believing
I'm feeling strong
the river is fire, the river is water
the river is sweet, sweet wine
the river is moving, moving through me
the river it shines inside

My H's favorite SMB song. To this day, if we find it on a jukeobx, it must be played.

Interesting that as you age and experience life, a song can take on different meanings even though the words and the tune are the same as they've always been.

"Jungle Love" by Steve Miller Band (1977)

I met you on somebody’s island
You thought you had known me before
I brought you a crate of papaya
They waited all night by your door
You probably wouldn’t remember
I probably couldn’t forget
Jungle love in the surf in the pouring rain
Everything’s better when wet

Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy
Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy

But lately you live in the jungle
I never see you alone
But we need some definite answers
So I thought I would write you a poem
The question to everyone’s answer
Is usually asked from within
But the patterns of the rain
And the truth they contain
Have written my life on your skin

Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy
Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy

You treat me like I was your ocean
You swim in my blood when its warm
My cycles of circular motion
Protect you and keep you from harm
You live in a world of illusion
Where everything’s peaches and cream
We all face a scarlet conclusion
But we spend our time in a dream

Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy
Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy

Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy
Jungle love its drivin me mad
Its makin me crazy

I'm feelin' this one today.

Evanescence "Bring Me to Life"

How can you see into my eyes like open doors
Leading you down into my core
Where I've become so numb without a soul
My spirit sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and
Lead it back... home...

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can't wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become

Now that I know what I'm without
You can't just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can't wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become

Bring me to life
(I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love darling
Only you are the life among the dead

All this time I can't believe I couldn't see
Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I've been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought without a voice without a soul
Don't let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can't wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become

(Bring me to life)
I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside
(Bring me to life)

Here's another one for fun even though i must admit the first time i heard it i told my H that it was wrote for me \:\) .

It is by Terri Clark, it is called "I Just Wanna Be Mad" and i couldn't find a link to be able to listen to it.

I Just Wanna Be Mad


Last night we went to bed not talkin’,
’cause we’d already said too muh.
I faced the wall, you faced the window.
Bound and determined not to touch.

We’ve been married seven years now.
Sometimes it feels like 21.
I’m still mad at you this mornin’.
Coffee’s ready if you want some.
I’ve been up since five, thinkin’ bout me and you.
And I’ve got to tell you the conclusion I’ve come to.

I’ll never leave, I’ll never stray.
My love for you will never change.
But I ain’t ready to make up.
We’ll get around to that.
I think I’m right, I think you’re wrong.
I’ll prob’ly give in before long.
Please don’t make me smile.
I just wanna be mad for a while.

Well, now you might as well forget it.
Don’t run your fingers through my hair.
Yeah, that’s right, I’m bein’ stubborn.
No, I don’t wanna go back upstairs.
I’m gonna leave for work without a goodbye kiss.
But as I’m drivin’ off, just remember this.

I’ll never leave, I’ll never stray.
My love for you will never change.
But I ain’t ready to make up.
We’ll get around to that.
I think I’m right, I think you’re wrong.
I’ll prob’ly give in before long.
Please don’t make me smile.
I just wanna be mad for a while.

I’ll never leave, I’ll never stray.
My love for you will never change.
But I ain’t ready to make up.
We’ll get around to that.
I think I’m right, I think you’re wrong.
I’ll prob’ly give in before long.
Please don’t make me smile.
I just wanna be mad for a while.

I just wanna be mad for a while.
I just wanna be mad for a while.
I just wanna be mad for a while.

Whatever You're Doing
By Sanctus Real

Whatever You're Doing Music Video


It's time for healing time to move on
It's time to fix what's been broken too long
Time make right what has been wrong
It's time to find my way to where I belong
There's a wave that's crashing over me
All I can do is surrender

(Chorus)
Whatever you're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos somehow there's peace
It's hard to surrender to what I can't see
but I'm giving in to something heavenly

Time for a milestone
Time to begin again
Revaluate who I really am
Am I doing everything to follow your will
or just climbing aimlessly over these hills
So show me what it is you want from me
I give everything I surrender...
To...

(Chorus)

Time to face up
Clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I've wanted to say for so many years
Time to to release all my held back tears

Whatever you're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but I believe
You're up to something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly

Whatever you're doing inside of me
It feels like chaos but now I can see
This something bigger than me
Larger than life something heavenly
Something heavenly

It's time to face up
Clean this old house
Time breathe in and let everything out


Happily married to HerPapaBear
