Out of the thousands of songs that I have loaded on my iPod, this one surfaced. Yikes........

Pink Floyd "One Slip"

A restless eye across a weary room
A glazed look and I was on the road to ruin
The music played and played as we whirled without end
No hint, no word her honour to defend

I will, I will she sighed to my request
And then she tossed her mane while my resolve was put to the test
Then drowned in desire, our souls on fire
I lead the way to the funeral pyre
And without a thought of the consequence
I gave in to my decadence

One Slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no Time at all
A Momentary Lapse Of Reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you won’t forget,
There’ll be no sleep in here tonight

Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love?
Or was it the hand of fate, that seemed to fit just like a glove?
The moment slipped by and soon the seeds were sown
The year grew late and neither one wanted to remain alone

One Slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no Time at all
A Momentary Lapse Of Reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you will never forget,
There’ll be no sleep in here tonight

This one from Hank Jr.

A Country Boy Can Survive
 Quote:
The preacher man says it’s the end of time
And the Mississippi River she’s a goin’ dry
The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
And you only get mugged
If you go down town

I live back in the woods, you see
A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I can plow a field all day long
I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
Ain’t too many things these ole boys can’t do
We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Because you can’t starve us out
And you cant makes us run
Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
And we say grace and we say Ma’am
And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

We came from the West Virginia coalmines
And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I had a good friend in New York City
He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
And his taught him to be a businessman
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
And I’d send him some homemade wine

But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
Id love to spit some beechnut in that dudes eyes
And shoot him with my old 45
Cause a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Cause you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run
Cause one-of- ‘em old boys raisin ole shotgun
And we say grace and we say Ma’am
And if you ain’t into that we don’t give a damn

We’re from North California and south Alabam
And little towns all around this land
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trot-line
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Dear God - Avenged Sevenfold

 Quote:
A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love
Purpose hard to find
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
Can't help but wish that I was there
Back where I'd love to be, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing I ask of you
Is to hold her when I'm not around
When I'm much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
But I left her when I found her
And now I wish I'd stayed
'Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missing you again, oh no
Once again

There's nothing here for me on this barren road
There's no one here while the city sleeps
And all the shops are closed
Can't help but think of the times I've had with you
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I'm not around,
When I'm much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I'd stayed
'Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missing you again oh no
Once again

Some search, never finding a way
Before long, they waste away
I found you, something told me to stay
I gave in, to selfish ways
And how I miss someone to hold
When hope begins to fade...

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love
Hope is hard to find

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I'm not around,
When I'm much too far away
We all need the person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I'd stayed
'Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missing you again oh no
Once again

We heard this one the other day.

The Reason - Hoobastank

 Quote:
I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You

and the reason is You [x3]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

Mary J. Blige "What Love Is" (I love this woman!!)

What Love Is

Beautiful
Horrible
Magical
Terrible
Reason to laugh and smile
Reason to cry yourself to sleep at night
Start a fight
Make up, break up
Wrong or right
Heaven for all it's worth
Can equally be hell right here on earth

Bridge:
And no one really knows anything about it
But everybody needs it
We can't live without it
And that's the way it goes
Dark as day
Bright as night
Just some of the things you might hear if you ask what love feels like

Chorus:
And it feels like joy
And it feels like pain
And it feels like sunshine
Feels like rain
An excuse for dying
Reason to live
And if you don't know
That's what love is
Love is oh

Verse:
Gentle kiss
Sweet caress
Kiss the base of your neck
Argue until my head hurts I can't remember what you said
Hours screaming loud
Don't know what we're screaming bout
So confusing yes it's true
But if it wasn't there what would we do

Bridge:
And no one really knows anything about it
But everybody needs it
We can't live without it
And that's the way it goes
Oooo dark as day
Bright as night
Just some of the things you might hear if you ask what love feels like

Chorus:
And it feels like joy
And it feels like pain
And it feels like sunshine
Feels like rain
An excuse for dying
Reason to live
And if you don't know
That's what love is
Love is oh

Bridge:
That's love
Anything that can bring you up or bring you down
That's love
Can be the sun up in your sky or the darkest cloud
That's love
And we need it
That's love
And we need
That's love
Oooo ask anybody how it feels

Chorus:
And it feels like joy
And it feels like pain
And it feels like sunshine
Feels like rain
An excuse for dying
Reason to live
And if you don't know
That's what love is
Love is

And it feels like joy
And it feels like pain
And it feels like sunshine
Feels like rain
An excuse for dying
Reason to live
And if you don't know
That's what love is
Love is oh

Alter Bridge "Come to Life"

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DRCVuvj6T8 ]Alter Bridge - Come to Life[/url]

Hey
tore away the veil of weakness
The enemy now lies beneath us
I think we're safe

Hey
Won't be held down any longer
No disgrace and no dishonor
Keep us chained

[Chorus:]
There's nothing we should have to fear
It's alright
We've come to life

We'll never shed another tear
It's alright
We've come to life

Hey
the bulletproof are so resilient
To every fool with an opinion
They never break

By the way
We scream to find a reason
Never doubt or stop believing
And escape

[Chorus]

Now wicked tongues can speak
And rewrite history
But you can't keep the truth contained
And like this song was sung
Just realize we're one
And don't forget we're here to stay

[Chorus]

In honor of opening day.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

Take me out to the ball game
Take me out to the crowd
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks
I don't care if I ever get back
And it's root, root, root
for the home team
If they don't win, it's a shame
Cause it's one, two, three strikes
You're out
At the old ball game.

No. I missed that day...

Gotta work sometime. grumble

Actually, I don't go to many games. It costs about a car payment to go to one with parking, food, tickets etc and I have lots of other stuff to spend my money on...

Things like house payments, eating, buying stff to wear...

DS23 goes to a handful of games per year and we have a local AA Northern League minor league team in Joliet that you can get good seats to for 10 bucks. We go to about 10 games or so there per year. Our company has season tickets most years as well, though not this year. I sold the team their radio system and got their FCC license for them when they first started up.

DS23 played B-ball from the time he was 4 through high school. Between baseball and wrestling we had something going on year-round.


At our house we are definitely Cubs fans. We had three puppies named Wrigley, Lilly and Zambrano. We still have Wrigley...

cool Go CUBS! cool

"Shine" by Collective Soul (1994)


Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell what will I find ( will I find )
Lay me on the ground
Fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find ( will I find )

Oh, heaven let your light shine down (x4)

Love is in the water
Love is in the air
Show me where to go
Tell me will love be there ( love be there )
Teach me how to speak
Teach me how to share
Teach me where to go
Tell me will love be there ( love be there )

Oh, heaven let your light shine down (x4)

Im going to let it shine (x2)
Heavens little light gonna shine on me
Yea yea heavens little light gonna shine on me
Its gonna shine, shine on me
Its gonna shine, come on in shine.

I freely admit it, I'm about as far from a country music fan as you can get. BUT, I will also admit that this song puts a tear in my eyes. I love it and Ike always laughs at me.

On a weird note, though; when I was a little kid I used to say I was going to grow up and marry Hank Williams Jr. I wonder now what the heck my parents were subjecting me to!

Well, that would explain my craziness now. LOL, 4 kids. 3 girls aged 13, 11, and 6 and one baby boy. Whew! If I'm not crazy, I probably should be!

The Veer Union "Seasons"

www.metacafe.com/watch/yt-c8HpfJ3_nQU/seasons_the_veer_union -

back and forth you wonder
through your mind
winters passing over
but it wont find you

take what you can
change the seasons

isolate yourself and
you will find
theres no rhyme or reason
that it wont find you

take what you can
change the seasons
the changing of the seasons is you now
the changing of the seasons is you now, is you now

back and forth you wonder
through your mind
winters passing over
but i dont mind

branches that youre under
will subside
theres no time to ponder
cuz it wont find you

take what you can
change the seasons
the changing of the seasons is you now
the changing of the seasons is you now, is you now

and i will find you
although i wonder
if i will climb through
this work among them

im turning the page for something new
im finding my way through life it knew???

the changing of the seasons is you now
the changing of the seasons is you now, is you now
is you now

im turning the page for something new
im finding my way through life it knew???

I liked this one by Kellie Pickler. Don't think it's shown up here yet. Anyway, dedicated to all WS's.....

Are you ashamed?
Ashamed that every time you hear my name
Brought up in a casual conversation
You can't think straight

And ain't it sad?
You can't forget about what we had
So take a look at her and do you like what you see
Or do you with it was me

I'll be there in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it's just too bad you've already had
The best days, the best days of your life

Does she know?
Know about the times you used to hold me
Wrap me in your arms and how you told me
I'm the only one

I heard about
Yeah someone told me once when you were out
She went a little crazy, ran her mouth about me
Ain't jealousy funny

I'll be there in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it's just too bad you've already had
[ Kellie Pickler Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
The best days, the best days of your

Life with me was a fairy tale love
I was head over heels 'til you threw away us
And it's just too bad you've already had
The best days, the best days of your life

I heard you're gonna get married
Have a nice little family
Live out my dreams with someone new
But I've been told that a cheater
Is always a cheater
I've got my pride and she's got you

I'll be there in the back of your mind
From the day we met 'til you were making me cry
And it's just too bad you've already had
The best days, the best days of your life

You're gonna think of me
You're gonna think of me
Your life

Ha!
It's a shame
It's a shame

Just Wait by Blue's Travelers

This song could be from a FWS to a BS or vice versa...or even one person to another just trying to make it though this mess.

Couldn't find an audio link but here's the lyrics:



If ever you are feeling like you're tired
And all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you
And your appetite for pain has drinken its fill

I ask of you a very simple question
Did you think for one minute that you were alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only
Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

If you think I've given up on you you're crazy
And if you think I don't love you well then you're just wrong
In time you might take to feeling better
Time is the beauty of the road being long

I know that now you feel no consolation
But maybe if I told you and informed you out loud
I say this without fear of hesitation
I can honestly tell you that you make me proud

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

If anything I might have just said has helped you
If anything I might have just said helped you just carry on
Your rise uphill may no longer seem a struggle
And you appetit for pain might all but be gone

I hope for you and cannot stop at hoping
Until that smile has once again returned to you face
There's no such thing as a failure who keeps trying
Coasting to the bottom is the only disgrace

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

Many a good man has failed because he had a wishbone where his backbone should have been.

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.
