Heard this driving home a few minutes ago. Seems it means more today than when it was released in 1999...

Blame It On Your Heart

Lyrics follow...

 Quote:
You've got a thing or two to learn about me baby
'cause i ain't taking it no more and i don't mean maybe
You'll don't know right from wrong
Well the love we had is gone
So blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating,
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Well all i wanted was to be your one and only
And all i ever got from you was being lonely
Now that dream is laid to rest
'cause you have failed the test
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating,
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Are you headed for a heartache, oh yeah
Gonna get a bad break, oh yeah
You made a bad mistake, oh yeah
Well, you're never gonna find another love like mine
Someone's gonna do you like you done me honey
And when she does you like she'll do you, it ain't funny
You'll need some sympathy
But don't be calling me
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Are you headed for a heartache, oh yeah
Gonna get a bad break, oh yeah
You made a bad mistake, oh yeah
Well, you're never gonna find another love like mine
Someone's gonna do you like you done me honey
And when she does you like she'll do you, it ain't funny
You need some sympathy
But don't be calling me
Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating
Two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Hey blame it on your lying, cheating, cold deadbeating, two-timing, double dealing
Mean mistreating, loving heart

Mark,

My DH and I heard this song in the car one night during my snooping stage of this A ordeal. I knew at that point and I cranked it up and started to sing along. He talked over the song trying to drown it out. I couldn't help it.

Sometimes I can't help but crank up songs like this even now. I guess there's some residual anger left. Oh well my bad.

During the last car ride I will ever take with my ex, Carrie Underwood's Before He Cheats song came on. I cranked it up and sang along. And my ex drives a 4 wheel drive with leather seats, and OW is a bleached blond tramp. So it was very fitting.
Posted By: AheadOfTheCurve Re: Song for today... - 01/25/09 10:38 PM
To be honest, songs about cheatin' always depressed me. Now they depress me ever more. I'm a die-hard romantic/idealist, which means I'm still looking for things as they should be as compared to the downer side of life.

Bargain - The Who

This song has been my favorite since the first time I heard it, back in high school. It sums up what we're all really after, anyway. I've been listening to it a lot over the past two months, trying to remind myself what the ultimate goal is. It's kept me going, to be honest.


"Bargain"
written by Pete Townshend

I'd gladly lose me to find you
I'd gladly give up all I had
To find you I'd suffer anything and be glad
I'd pay any price just to get you
I'd work all my life and I will
To win you I'd stand naked, stoned and stabbed

I'd call that a bargain
The best I ever had
The best I ever had

I'd gladly lose me to find you
I'd gladly give up all I got
To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop
I'd pay any price just to win you
Surrender my good life for bad
To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man

I'd call that a bargain
The best I ever had
The best I ever had


I sit looking 'round
I look at my face in the mirror
I know I'm worth nothing without you
And like one and one don't make two
One and one make one
And I'm looking for that free ride to me
I'm looking for you

I'd gladly lose me to find you
I'd gladly give up all I got
To catch you I'm gonna run and never stop
I'd pay any price just to win you
Surrender my good life for bad
To find you I'm gonna drown an unsung man

I'd call that a bargain
The best I ever had
The best I ever had

Death Cab for Cutie's Crooked Teeth still describes my situation to a tee.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iw7YcxPug1w

It was one hundred degrees, as we sat beneath a willow tree,
Who's tears didn't care, they just hung in the air, and refused to fall, to fall.

And I knew I'd made horrible call,
And now the state line felt like the Berlin wall,
And there was no doubt about which side I was on.

Cause I built you a home in my heart,
With rotten wood, it decayed from the start.

Cause you can't find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
No you can't find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.

I braved treacherous streets,
And kids strung out on homemade speed.
And we shared a bed in which I could not sleep,
At all, woo, hoo, woo, hooOoOo.

Cause at night the sun in retreat,
Made the skyline look like crooked teeth,
In the mouth of a man who was devouring, us both.

You're so cute when you're slurring your speech,
But they're closing the bar and they want us to leave.

And you can't find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
No you can't find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.

I'm a war, of head versus heart,
And it's always this way.
My head is weak, my heart always speaks,
Before I know what it will say.

And you can't find nothing at all,
If there was nothing there all along.
There were churches, theme parks and malls,
But there was nothing there all along.

Definitely Chris Daughtry. These songs really hit home.

1. What About Now?

2. It's Not Over

3. Over You

And Kellie Pickler has a new one regarding a cheating husband getting remarried. It's called "Best Days of Your Life" and was co-written by Taylor Swift. Can see it on Youtube.

Sorry, I don't know how to set up links to songs.

I recently discovered Verizon Ringbacks on my cell phone. As I discovered, the really cool part is you can have custom ringbacks for certain people! Here's some from the last month for whenever STBXWW calls:

1. Dueling Banjo's (OM is WW's 2nd cousin) Luckily WW still has not figured out the reference.

2. Spiderwebs (No Doubt) "It's all your fault, I screeeeeeen my phone calls!" This is good choice for those who are in a Dark Plan B as well.

3. Throwing it All Away - Genesis

I love Merle Haggard and just a couple months ago heard this song - "Place to Fall Apart". You can watch/listen to the video on YouTube.


I'll Prob'ly Never See You Eye To Eye A-gain
This Letter's Meant To Be My Last Fare-well
But You Need To Under-stand I'm Nearly Crazy
You Need To Know My Life Has Gone To Hell

Write Me Back And Tell Me Why It Ended
Send A Letter That I Can Show My Heart
I'll Be Somewhere Between I Love You And What You're Feeling Now
Lookin' For A Place To Fall A-part

Looking For A Place To Fall A-part
Trying To Find A Place That I Can Leave My Heart
I Need To Be Somewhere Hidin' When I Feel The Teardrops Start
Lookin' For A Place To Fall A-part

I Can't Seem To Justify Your Leavin' Me
I'm Be-wildered As To How It All Came Down
I Thought Everything Was Fine Until Your Phone Call
The Call That Turned My World A-round

Send Me Word And Tell Me Why It Ended
I Need Some Final Proof To Show My Heart
I'll Be Somewhere Between I Love You And What You're Feelin' Now
Lookin' For A Place To Fall A-part

Originally penned by Lyle Lovett, the video is of Patti Lovelace again:

God Will, But I Won't

Lyrics: (Original)
 Quote:
Who keeps on trusting you

When you've been cheating

And spending your nights on the town

And who keeps on saying

That he still wants you

When you're through running around

And who keeps on loving you

When you've been lying

Saying things that ain't what they seem


God does, but I don't

And God will, but I won't

That's the difference between God and me


God does, but I don't

And God will, but I won't

That's the difference between God and me


So who says he'll forgive you

And says that he'll miss you

And dream of your sweet memory


God does, but I don't

And God will, but I won't

And that's the difference between God and me


God does, but I don't

And God will, but I won't

And that's the difference between God and me

A double play Tuesday I guess.

This one from Hank goes out to Chrys and Not2Fun...

Your Cheatin' Heart

 Quote:
Your cheatin' heart will make you weep
You'll cry and cry and try to sleep
But sleep won't come the whole night through
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you
When tears come down like falling rain
You'll toss around and call my name
You'll walk the floor the way
I do your cheatin' heart will tell on you
When tears come down...
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

Posted By: Jamesus Re: Song for today... - 01/28/09 04:40 PM
Mine today is an upbeat one.. thought I'd share

311 'Beautiful Disaster'

Today seems like a good day to burn a bridge or two
The one with old wood creaking burn away right on cue
I try to be not like that but some people really suck
Some people need to get their axing chalk it up to bad luck

I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
She's always running from something so many things ignored
I might do that stuff if it didn't make me feel like [censored]
I'm on some old reality tip so many trips in it

Beautiful disaster
Flyin' down the street again
I tried to keep up
You wore me out and left me ate up
Now I wish you all the luck
You're a butterfly in the wind without a care
A pretty train crash to me and I can't care
I do I don't whatever

I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored
She's always running from something so many things ignored
I try to be not like this but I thought it'd make a good song
There's nothing to see shows over people just move along

Beautiful disaster
Flyin' down the street again
I tried to keep up
You wore me out and left me ate up
Now I wish you all the luck
You're a butterfly in the wind without a care
A pretty train crash to me and I can't care
I do I don't whatever

Thanks James...

Since we're on a more positive note, here's one from Montgomery Gentry...

Lucky Man

 Quote:
I have days where I hate my job,
This little town and the whole world too
And last sunday when the bengals lost
Lord it put me in a bad mood

I have moments when I curse the rain
Then complain when the suns too hot
I look around at what everyone has
And I forget about all I've got

But I know Im a lucky man
Gods given me a pretty fair hand
Got a house and piece of land
A few dollars in a coffee can
My old truck's still runnin' good
My tickers tickin like they say it should
I've got supper in the oven
A good woman's lovin
And one more day to be my little kids dad
Lord knows I'm a lucky man

Got some friends that would be here fast
I could call em any time of day
Got a brother who's got my back
Got a momma who I swear's a saint
Got a brand new rod and reel
Got a full week off this year
Dad had a close call last spring
It's a miracle he's still here

[chorus]

My old truck's still runnin' good
My tickers tickin like they say it should
I got supper in the oven
A good womans lovin'
And even my bad days aint that bad
Yeah I'm a lucky man

I'm a lucky, lucky man

Another uplifting tune, this one from Brandon Heath, going out to those working hard at changes that seem to go unnoticed...

I'm Not Who I Was

 Quote:
I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who I was
I used to be mad at you
A little on the hurt side too
But I'm not who I was

I found my way around
To forgiving you
Some time ago
But I never got to tell you so

I found us in a photograph
I saw me and I had to laugh
You know, I'm not who I was
You were there, you were right above me
And I wonder if you ever loved me
Just for who I was

When the pain came back again
Like a bitter friend
It was all that I could do
To keep myself from blaming you

I reckon it's a funny thing
I figured out I can sing
Now I'm not who I was
I write about love and such
Maybe 'cause I want it so much
I'm not who I was

I was thinking maybe I
I should let you know
I am not the same
But I never did forget your name
Hello

Well the thing I find most amazing
In amazing grace
Is the chance to give it out
Maybe that's what love is all about

I wish you could see me now
I wish I could show you how
I'm not who I was

This one from Garth Brooks goes out to Not2Fun. Let's hope you can find a solution not found in this song...

And The Thunder Rolls

 Quote:
Three thirty in the morning
Not a soul insight
The city's lookin' like a ghost town
On a moonless summer night
Raindrops on the windshield
There's a storm moving in
He's headin' back from somewhere
That he never should have been
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls

Every light is burnin'
In a house across town
She's pacin' by the telephone
In her faded flannel gown
Askin' for miracle
Hopin' she's not right
Prayin' it's the weather
That's kept him out all night
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls

The thunder rolls
And the lightnin' strikes
Another love grows cold
On a sleepless night
As the storm blows on
Out of control
Deep in her heart
The thunder rolls

She's waitin' by the window
When he pulls into the drive
She rushes out to hold him
Thankful he's alive
But on the wind and rain
A strange new perfume blows
And the lightnin' flashes in her eyes
And he knows that she knows
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls

The thunder rolls

And the lightnin' strikes
Another love grows cold
On a sleepless night
As the storm blows on
Out of control
Deep in her heart
The thunder rolls

She runs back down the hallway
To the bedroom door
She reaches for the pistol
Kept in the dresser drawer
Tells the lady in the mirror
He won't do this again
Cause tonight will be the last time
She'll wonder where he's been

You may not know it, but I was once a country bumpkin and one of my favorite bands was Alabama. I saw them many many times and actually had the opportunity to talk with them on their tour bus. Anyhoo, here is a song that really defined my view of what NOT to do in M as a teen growing up. Never in a million years did I think I would be on the receiving end of it, but what you gonna do.

I'm gonna send this one out to Not2Fun and the other ladies at MB that find themselves at a crossroads...

Alabama - Lady Down On Love

Its her first night on the town since she was just eighteen, a lady down on
Love and out of hope and dreams.
The ties that once bound her now are broke away, and shes like a baby, just
Learning how to play.

She never thought that love could ever end so soon.
Her mind drifts back in time to a mid-summer moon when he asked her to marry
And she glady said o.k.
And a woman came to be from the girl of yesterday.

Now shes a lady down on love.
She needs somebody to gentley pick her up.
Shes got her freedom, but shed rather be bound to a man who would love her
And never let her down.

Well, I know a lady thats down on her love, cause I used to hold her and
Have that special touch.
But work took me a way from home late at nights, and I wasnt there when she
Turned out the lights.
Then both of us got lonely and I gave into lust, and she just couldnt live
With a man she couldnt trust.

Now shes a lady down on love.
She needs somebody to gently pick her up.
She's got her freedom, but shed rather be bound to man who would love her
And never let her down.
Now shes a lady down on love.

Lady Down On Love

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)
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

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

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

(Both)
Every Other Weekend

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

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)

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

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

(Both)
Every Other Weekend






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.

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

Bring It On Home

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

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

Here is on that has only to do with a cr*ppy relationship, but not an A...it's funny and cracks me up everytime I play it. I love the piano in it...

"Foundation" by Kate Nash

Thursday night, everything's fine
Except you've got that look in your eye
When I'm telling a story, and you find it boring
You're thinking of something to say

You'll go along with it, then drop it
And humiliate me in front of our friends
Then I'll use that voice that you find annoying
And say something like,
"Yeah, intelligent input, darling.
Why don't you just have another beer then?"

Then you'll call me a [censored]
And everyone we're with will be embarrassed
And I won't give a [censored]

My fingertips are holding onto
The cracks in our foundation
And I know that I should let go, but I can't
And every time we fight I know it's not right
Every time that you're upset and I smile
I know I should forget, but I can't

You said I must eat so many lemons
'Cause I am so bitter
I said, "I'd rather be with your friends, mate,
'Cause they are much fitter."

Yes, it was childish
And you got aggressive
And I must admit that I was a bit scared
But it gives me thrills to wind you up

My fingertips are holding onto
The cracks in our foundation
And I know that I should let go, but I can't
And every time we fight I know it's not right
Every time that you're upset and I smile
I know I should forget, but I can't

Your face is pasty
'Cause you've gone and got so wasted
What a surprise
Don't want to look at your face, 'cause it's making me sick

You've gone and got sick on my trainers
only got these yesterday
Oh my gosh, I cannot be bothered with this

Well, I'll leave you there 'till the morning
And I purposely won't turn the heating on
And dear God, I hope I'm not stuck with this one

My fingertips are holding onto
The cracks in our foundation
And I know that I should let go, but I can't
And every time we fight I know it's not right
Every time that you're upset and I smile
I know I should forget, but I can't

And every time we fight I know it's not right
Every time that you're upset and I smile
I know I should forget, but I can't

And every time we fight I know it's not right
Every time that you're upset and I smile
I know I should forget, but I can't.

[Funny side note: this is our 5 year old's favorite line in the whole song: "I said, "I'd rather be with your friends, mate,
'Cause they are much fitter." She sings it at the top of her voice everysingletime it's played!

And yes, I bleep out the bad words when the kids are around. ;)]

And you wear is surprisingly well, W2S. I owned a white leather jacket with fringe on the sleeves. I was so cool. I'm reminded now why they didn't stay cool very long.

Hadn't heard this in years. Thanks for the flashback.

I once had blue bell bottoms with a gold window-pane plaid pattern to them that I wore with a gold Nehru jacket, a white shirt and a blue and gold tie...

I also had a pair of white pants and white shoes that I wore with a white belt and lavendar shirt...

My fringed jacket was tan suede...

But I also wore tie-dyed tee shirts at one time...

Yep. I was a hippy type. Hair down to the middle of my back in those days.

I almost gave up boots and cowboy hats when Urban Cowboy came out. Glad THAT burned out.

I even remember when pick-up trucks were for haulin' stuff in.

Garth Brooks - She's Gonna Make It

 Quote:
He followed her to work this morning
He’d never seen that dress before
She seemed to sail right through
Those dark clouds forming
That he knows he’s headed for

After seven years of marriage
He wanted out
Now after seven months of freedom
It’s clear that there’s no doubt

She’s gonna make it
And he never will
He’s at the foot of the mountain
And she’s over that hill
He’s sinkin’ at sea
And her sails are filled
She’s gonna make it
And he never will

And you know it’s not like she’s forgot about him
She’s just dealing with the pain
And the fact that she’s survived so well without him
You know it’s driving him insane

And the crazy thing about it
Is she’d take him back
But the fool in him that walked out
Is the fool that just won’t ask

She’s gonna make it
And he never will
He’s at the foot of the mountain
And she’s over that hill
He’s sinkin’ at sea
And her sails are filled
She’s gonna make it
And he never will

Lord, she's gonna make it

Love the group and have always loved this song but now it is especially meaningful to me.

Barenaked Ladies - Call and Answer

I think its getting to the point
Where I can be myself again
I think its getting to the point
Where we have almost made amends
I think its the getting to the point
That is the hardest part.

And if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster
I'll point you home

You think I only think about you
When were both in the same room
You think I'm only here to witness
The remains of love exhumed
You think we're here to play
A game of who loves more than whom

And if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster
I'll point you home

You think its only fair to do what's
Best for you and you alone
You think its only fair to do the same
To me when you're not home
I think its time to make this something that is
More than only fair

So if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster
I'll point you home.

But I'm warning you, dont ever do
Those crazy, messed up things that you do
If you ever do
I promise you I'll be the first to crucify you
Now its time to prove that you've come back
Here to rebuild.
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild



If I had $1,000,000 is still my fave. \:\)

Groovy, Mark. You knew were "it" in your fine apparel, right?

And pick-up trucks... Common where I grew up and I lived on a farm so I hear ya. My H drove a Chevy Luv in high school. Okay, not a real truck, but enough of one. It had a bench seat so I could sit right by him and we fit in its bed just fine. I loved that truck.

You know, we should start another thread titled "Moments from our past that make us go 'DOH!' in a good way."

Now, back to the music.

(I love this thread.)

I'm sure I'd heard this song before but never paid attention to the lyrics until a few days ago when I heard it driving home. All those darn questions in a BS's head.

http://www.jango.com/music/All+Saints?l=0

All Saints - Never Ever

A few questions that I need to know
how you could ever hurt me so
I need to know what I've done wrong
and how long it's been going on
Was it that I never paid enough attention?
Or did I not give enough affection?
Not only will your answers keep me sane
but I'll know never to make the same mistake again
You can tell me to my face or even on the phone
You can write it in a letter, either way, I have to know
Did I never treat you right?
Did I always start the fight?
Either way, I'm going out of my mind
all the answers to my questions
I have to find

My head's spinning
Boy, I'm in a daze
I feel isolated
Don't wanna communicate

I'll take a shower, I will scour
I will rub
To find peace of mind
The happy mind I once owned, yeah

Vexing vocabulary runs right through me
The alphabet runs right from A to Z
Conversations, hesitations in my mind
You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find

I'm not crazy
I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong, no
I'm just waiting
'Cause I heard this feeling
won't last that long

Never ever have I ever felt so low
When you gonna take me out of this black hole?
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

Never ever have I had to find
I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
I've Never ever had my conscience to fight
The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel righ

I'll keep searching
Deep within my soul
For all the answers
Don't wanna hurt no more

I need peace, got to feel at ease
Need to be.
Free from pain - going insane
My heart aches, yeah

Sometimes vocabulary runs right through my head
The alphabet runs right from A to Z
Conversations, hesitations in my mind
You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find

I'm not crazy,
I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong
I'm just waiting
'Cause I heard this feeling won't last that long

Never ever have I ever felt so low
When ya gonna take me out of this black hole?
Never ever have I ever felt so sad
The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad

Never ever have I had to find
I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind
I've Never ever had my conscience to fight
The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right x4

You can tell me to my face,
You can tell me on the phone,
Uh, You can write it in a letter, babe
'Cause I really need to know

You can tell me to my face
You can tell me on the phone
Uh, You can write it in a letter, bab
'Cause I really need to know

You can write it in a letter, babe
You can write it in a letter, babe

As long as we’re reminiscing, here’s one from the boys from’Bama:

Jukebox In My Mind

 Quote:


Artist: Alabama
Song: Jukebox In My Mind

In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox
It's playin' all my favorite mem-o-ries
One by one, they take me back
To the days when you were mine
And I can't stop this jukebox in my mind.

I don't need no quarters, don't need any dime
You filled it up forever
When you said good-bye
Heaven knows I love old melodies
They were meant to ease the pain
But the kind that's playin' on my mind
Are drivin' me insane.

In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox
It's playin' all my favorite mem-o-ries
One by one, they take me back
To the days when you were mine
And I can't stop this jukebox in my mind.

Song by song, those melodies
Were meant to ease the pain
But the kind that's playin' on my mind
Are drivin' me insane;

In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox
It's playin' all my favorite mem-o-ries
One by one, they take me back
To the days when you were mine
And I can't stop this jukebox in my mind.

The bass player/lead vocalist/song writer for this band had the same rolls in a band I ran sound for in the mid 70s. Though this clip is fairly old (April 1994) the guy can still sing...

From King's-X:

I Pretend

 Quote:
You took away from me
I tried to get it back
And if you lie to me
I keep it to myself
A trick or treat but then
That don't make it right
I can't remember when
I could say goodnite
Then something comes into my head
And then a change
I work it out somehow
I guess I've got my ways
But then I wonder how did I get it wrong
It doesn't matter now


I pretend.
I pretend.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah


I take the longest walks
They always do me good
I just indulge myself
In sorrow singing blues
But then I have to laugh
Cause it's an outlet too
And if I add it all
It still just wouldn't do
I've come to realize
There's nothing I can lose
So I control myself
Nothing else to do
I'll just remember when
It comes around again
I'd rather be alone
I won't get hurt again


I pretend
I pretend
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

And another one from Doug and King's-X...

From the 1989 album Gretchen Goes To Nebraska:

I'll Never Be The Same

 Quote:
She stands in the waiting
She looks down to speak
Your eyes speak invitation
To follow with the beat

Chorus:
She said
Oh no I'll never be the same
You struck my heart like lightning
I'll never be the same

I've come to know the color
Of indecisiveness
Tell me what I'm feeling
In seven words or less

Chorus:
She said
Oh no, I'll never be the same
You struck my heart like lightning
I'll never be the same



The way looks awful lonely
So long or maybe less
The time has passed so slowly
There's pressure on my chest
Your eyes speak invitation
To follow with the beat
So tell me what I'm feeling
In seven words so speak

(repeat chorus 2x)

THE TAKER

I’m not your average woman living an average life,
I saw what I wanted so I took a slice.
I’m not looking for approval for where I’ve been,
Your approval isn’t needed to absolve my sins.

Some call it love and some call it lust,
I call it pleasure when you call it rust.
If you think you can make a difference in me,
You better think twice, open your eyes and see.

Yeah, I’m a Taker,
I take what I want because it feels so good.
Yeah, you’re a Giver,
You give it to me like you know you should.

I take my men poor, ignorant and young,
I take my men dark, mysterious and hung.
We talk about things far from my life at home,
I help them with their rent and then they "F" my bones.

Then I bid them goodbye and I send them off packing,
with my Taker in control and my lust not lacking.
I’ve got to get home and put dinner on the table,
I’ve got to show my husband that we are stable.

So let me Take,
My needs are many.
And you can give,
Every last penny.

So if you’re lookin’ to lay a little guilt on me,
Don’t be barking up this withered old tree.
I’ve traveled way past your moral lesson,
You must not have noticed with who your mess’n.

And at the end of my life with my children all grown,
Far past my guilt and the love I’ve thrown
Most think that these many years I was giving,
None know the truth of this lie I’ve been living.

I don’t care, because I’m a Taker,
I take his love without remorse.
Because he don’t care, he’s a Giver,
He never knew who I really was of course.

Take a look at me I’m a Taker,
Living my life in an empty hole.
All these years he’s been a Giver,
May God have mercy on my soul.

May God have mercy on my soul………

Out on the tar plains

the glides are moving

all looking for

a new place to hide

You sit beside me

so newly charming

sweating dewdrops glisten

freshing your side



And the sun drips down

bedding heavy behind

the front of your dress

all shadowy lined

and the droning engine

throbs in time

with your beating heart



Way down the lane away

living for another day

the aphids swarm up

in the drifting haze

swim seagull in the sky

towards some hollow

western isle

my envied lady

holds you fast

in her gaze



And the sun drips down

bedding heavy behind

the front of your dress

all shadowy lined

and the droning engine

throbs in time

with your beating heart



Sing Blue Silver



And watching lovers part

I feel you smiling

what glass splinters

lie so deep in your mind

to tear out from your eyes

with a word to stiffen

brooding lies

and I'll only watch

you leave me

further behind



And the sun drips down

bedding heavy behind

the front of your dress

all shadowy lined

and the droning engine

throbs in time

with your beating heart



Sing Blue Silver

Sing, Sing Blue Silver

Up for a slow but groovy beat? (Close your eyes and sway…)

"Drift Away" (AKA "Give Me The Beat Boys") by The Doobie Brothers

Day after day, I'm more confused
Yet I look for the light through the pourin' rain
You know that's a game that I hate to loose
And I'm feelin' the strain
Ain't it a shame

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away
Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away

Beginnin' to think that I'm wastin' time
I don't understand the things I do
The world outside looks so unkind
Now I'm countin' on you
To carry me through

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away
Yea, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I'm feelin' blue
The guitar's comin' through
To soothe me

Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
And rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You help me along
Makin' me strong

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away

Oh-ho, ah-no
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away

Hey, hey, hey, yeah
Give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
And drift away

Na, Na, now won't ya
Won't ya take me
Oh-ha, take me

Fantastic song!
Posted By: Still_Crazy Re: Song for today... - 02/17/09 07:02 PM
My current favorite:

This time, I wonder what it feels like
To find the one in this life, the one we all dream of
But dreams just aren't enough
So I'll be waiting for the real thing, I'll know it by the feeling
The moment when we're meeting, will play out like a scene
Straight off the silver screen
So I'll be holding my breath, right up 'til the end
Until that moment when, I find the one that I'll spend forever with

Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me like that
Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they're not alone
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There's gotta be somebody for me out there

Tonight, out on the street, out in the moonlight
And dammit this feels too right, it's just like déja vu
Me standing here with you
So I'll be holding my breath, could this be the end?
Is it that moment when, I find the one that I'll spend forever with

Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me like that
Cause nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they're not alone
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There's gotta be somebody for me out there

You can't give up, (when you're looking for) a diamond in the rough (cause you never know)
When it shows up, (make sure you're holding on)
Cause it could be the one, the one you're waiting on
Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me, oh

Nobody wants to go it on their own
And everyone wants to know they're not alone
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There's gotta be somebody for me out there
Nobody wants to be the last one there
Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere
There's gotta be somebody for me out there

Gotta Be Somebody by Nickelback.

Title of song? By whom? Do you have a link to hear it?
Posted By: Looking4 Re: Song for today... - 02/19/09 04:25 PM
My all-time favorite song by my all-time favorite group. Doesn’t matter what’s going on in my life, it's always appropriate.

(Next time I’ll post my other favorite of theirs, “Barracuda,” just to mix it up here a bit.)

"Love Alive" by Heart, album Little Queen (1977)

The Sky was dark this morning
When I raised my head
I stood at the window -
Darkness was my bane

Suddenly a sunbeam arc
Thrilled me to my weary heart
It was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen

I knew I had to keep my Love
Keep my Love alive
Keep my Love - Keep my Love live

Baby I want you to roll me
Hold me in your love
No more habits, promises and jive
Ever since I was a baby girl
Wanted one thing most in this world
It was to Keep My Love -
Keep My Love alive

I want to keep my Love -
Keep my Love alive
Keep my Love - keep my love alive

You're up there under the spotlight
Your silver trophy shines
With all you got, my lord!
You must get high
You need a whole lot more than money
You need more than to survive
You gotta to keep your Love
Keep your Love alive


(Lyrics as found on http://www.sing365.com)

(I dare you to tell me that the middle instrumental/"ahhhh" part of the song didn't lift your spirits. I dare you...)
Posted By: CuthbertCalculus Re: Song for today... - 02/19/09 04:29 PM
I love "Keep My Love Alive", but my favorite part of the song has nothing to do with the lyrics - I love the guitar solo in the middle of the song. I could listen to that all day. (Well, not ALL day...)

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
Chorus

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

Bring Me To Life
Posted By: MutedSparkle Re: Song for today... - 03/10/09 12:27 AM
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.

Was that you in the blue Cubs hat, Mark, out in section 303?
Posted By: Mark1952 Re: Song for today... - 04/06/09 05:38 PM
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!

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

Love Remains the Same - Gavin Rossdale

A thousand times I’ve seen you standing
Gravity like a lunar landing
Make me want to run till I find you
I shut the world away from here
Drift to you, you’re all I hear
Everything we know fades to black

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

Find the place where we escape
Take you with me for a space
The city buzz, sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through seven bars
I had to find just where you are
The faces seems to blur, they’re all the same

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

So much more to say
So much to be done
Don’t you trick me out
We shall overcome
So all have stayed in place
We should have had the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we’re over here

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
Too much time, too long defending
You and I are done pretending

I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change

I, oh I, I
wish this could last forever
I, oh I, I
As if we could last forever

Love remains the same
Love remains the same

Right after D-day...Bottom by Tool pretty much sums it up.

Bottom

Compassion is broken now
My will is eroded now
Desire is broken now
And it makes me feel ugly

I'm on my knees and burning
My pi$$ and moans are fueling
That set my head on fire
So smell my soul that's burning

I'm broken
Looking up to see the enemy
And I have swallowed the poison you're feeding me
But I survive on the poison you're feeding me
And it's leaving me
Guilt fed
Hatred fed
Weakness fed
It makes me feel ugly

On my knees and burning
My piss and moans are fueling
That set my head on fire
I'm dead inside

$h!t adds up (repeat 4x)
At the bottom

If I let you, you would make me destroy myself
In order to survive you
I must first survive myself
I can sink no further
And I cannot forgive you

There's no choice but to confront you
To engage you
To erase you
I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain
I will use my mistakes against you
There's no other choice
Shameless now
Nameless now
Nothing now
No one now
But my soul must be iron
Cause my fear is naked
I'm naked and fearless
And my fear is naked

Dead inside (repeat 4x)

Nameless now
Shameless now
Nothing now
No one now
$h!t adds up (repeat 4x)
As you see my naked now
Fearless now
Naked now
Fearless now
$h!t adds up (repeat 3x)
It leaves me
Dead inside (repeat 4x)

Hatred keeps me alive
Loneliness keeps me alive
Weakness keeps me alive
Guilt keeps me alive
At the bottom

another...Fine Again by Seether

Fine Again

It seems like every day’s the same
and I’m left to discover on my own
It seems like everything is gray
and there’s no color to behold
They say it’s over and I’m fine again, yeah
Try to stay sober feels like I’m dying here

And I am aware now of how
everything’s gonna be fine one day
Too late, I’m in hell I am prepared now,
seems everyone’s gonna be fine
One day too late, just as well

I feel the dream in me expire
and there’s no one left to blame it on
I hear you label me a liar
‘cause I can’t seem to get this through
You say it’s over, I can sigh again, yeah
Why try to stay sober when I’m dying here

And I am aware now of how
everything’s gonna be fine one day
Too late, I’m in hell
I am prepared now,
seems everyone’s gonna be fine
One day too late; just as well

And I’m not scared now.
I must assure you,
you’re never gonna get away
And I’m not scared now.
And I’m not scared now. No…

I am aware now of how
everything’s gonna be fine one day
Too late, I’m in hell
I am prepared now
seems everyone’s gonna be fine
One day too late, just as well
I am prepared now,
seems everything’s gonna be fine for me
For me; for myself.
For me, for me, for myself
For me, for me, for myself

"True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Show me a smile then,
Don't be unhappy, can't remember
When I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

And I'll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

My turn. Making a Memory - Plain White Ts
Making a Memory
Friday night's such a beautiful night
Where you going?
I didn't mean to blow it
You're upset and I don't know what I said
But I'm sorry
Don't you give up on me?

Take off your jacket
Don't walk out that door

You and me
We should be
Making a memory whenever we're together, yeah
Look at me
Can't you see
We were meant to be
Making a memory

Don't pretend you're not smiling again
Let's just leave it
You know I didn't mean it
Don't know why we put up such a fight
Over nothing
When we could still be something

Take off your jacket
Don't walk out that door
There's no need to leave anymore
Yeah!

You and me
We should be
Making a memory whenever we're together, yeah
Look at me
Can't you see
We were meant to be
Making a memory

Can't do this myself
No, I need some help
We all need some help

Friday night's such a beautiful night
Now you're staying

You and me
We should be
Making a memory whenever we're together, yeah
Look at me
Can't you see
We were meant to be
Making a memory

Friday night's such a beautiful night (making a memory)
Now you're staying

Over nothing

"Patience" by Guns N' Roses, 1989

(Get out your lighter...)

(1..2...1,2,3,4)
Shed a tear 'cause I'm missing you
I'm still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn't sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt you're in my heart now
Said woman take it slow
It'll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Said sugar make it slow
And we'll come together fine
All we need is just a little patience
(inhale) Patience...
Ooh, oh, yeah

Sit here on the stairs
'Cause I'd rather be alone
If I can't have you right now, I'll wait dear
Sometimes, I get so tense
But I can't speed up the time
But you know, love, there's one more thing to consider
Said woman take it slow
Things will be just fine
You and I'll just use a little patience
Said sugar take the time
'Cause the lights are shining bright
You and I've got what it takes to make it
We won't fake it, Oh never break it
'Cause I can't take it

...little patience, mm yeah, ooh yeah,
Need a little patience, yeah
Just a little patience, yeah
Some more pati... (ence, yeah)
I've been walking these streets at night
Just trying to get it right (Need some patience, yeah)
It's hard to see with so many around
You know I don't like being stuck in a crowd (Could use some patience, yeah)
And the streets don't change but maybe the name
I ain't got time for the game
'Cause I need you (Patience, yeah)
Yeah, yeah well I need you
Oh, I need you (Take some patience)
Whoa, I need you (Just a little patience is all we need)
Ooh, this ti- me....

"Allies" by Heart, from Passionworks -- 1983

In troubled times
It's hard to get straight answers
Between the lines
That border wrong or right
The homeland cries
It struggles with confusion
But this feelin' still remains
Like shelter from the rain

We live of faith
In the hands of those who guide us
And tear the page
On the fear we left behind
We set the pace
For every born survivor
Don't turn the other way
When I need to hear you say

Allies with our backs against the wall
I will answer when you call
And take on the odds
For what we believe is true
Allies in a world of too much choice
I only need your voice
To tell me you care
I'll be anywhere for you, allies

We search our hearts
To justify the reason
And draw the line
To meet somewhere halfway
If faith is blind
Through darkness it will guide us
'Cause the spirit still remains
With the keepers of the flame

Allies with our backs against the wall
I will answer when you call
And take on the odds
For what we believe is true
Allies in a world of too much choice
I only need your voice
To tell me you care
I'll be anywhere for you, allies

Allies with our backs against the wall
I will answer when you call
And take on the odds
For what we believe is true
Allies in a world of too much choice
I only need your voice
To tell me you care
I'll be anywhere for you, allies

"Unlovable" Darren Hayes

Are my lips unkissable?
Are my eyes unlookable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Am I unlovable?

Cynical, jaded, faithless, disappointed, disillusioned, used
If I could take back all my sweat, my tears, my sex, my joy I would
My time, my love, my effort, passion, dedication
In case of mistaken identity I gave these things to you
If I sound angry, bitter, sad, infatuated, it's the truth
Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, just a few
Stages of acceptance that it's really over
It's just so complicated and I'm stupid for believing in you

You make me feel like my father never loved me
You make me feel like the act of love is empty
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

I had your back, I held you up, I told you you were good enough
It was not reciprocated, you kept affection and yourself apart
You fed your love to me like crumbs to pigeons in the park
Sometimes I think you're satisfied to see me begging like a dog
I wasn't armoured, you were king, I gave my everything
Because sometimes you showed me just a hint of you and then
For just a moment I romanticised the notion
I can take away the torment, I can love you like they never did

You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my heart unbreakable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you despise?

Are my lips unkissable?
Are my eyes unlookable?
Is my sex undoable?
Am I unlovable?
Are my words unlistenable?
Are my hands untouchable?
Am I undesirable?
Am I unlovable?

You make me feel like my father never loved me
You make me feel like the act of love is empty
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)
You make me feel like the act of love is empty (I felt so empty)
Am I so unlovable?
Is my heart unbreakable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you despise?

You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)
You make me feel like my father never loved me (you never loved me)
You make me feel like my mother, she abandoned me (you abandoned me)

"I Will Not Be Moved" by Natalie Grant, From Relentless - 2008

I have been a wayward child,
I have acted out,
I have questioned sovereignty,
and had my share of doubts,

And though sometimes,
my prayers feel like their bouncing off the sky,
the hand that holds won't let me go,
and is the reason why

I will stumble, I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But I will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

Bitterness has plagued my heart,
many times before,
My life has been a broken glass,
and I have kept the score,
of all my shattered dreams,
and though it seemed,
that I was far too gone,
my brokenness helped me to see,
it's grace I'm standing on.

I will stumble, I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But I will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

And chaos in my life,
has been a badge I've worn,
and though I have been torn,
I will not be moved

I will make mistakes, I will face heartache,
But i will not be moved

On Christ the solid rock I stand,
all other ground is sinking sand,
I will not be moved

From Randy Matthews: Didn't He?

Quote:
Didn't He
Words and Music by Randy Matthews
Copyright 1969

And the hammer fell
On the wooden nail
Through his flesh into the tree
As they laughed at him
As he cried for them
And there he hung
The faultless one

Now didn't he live, oh didn't he
And didn't he give, oh didn't he
But didn't he die for you and me

Spilled his precious blood
Sacrifice of love
We didn't take his life from him
He gave it willingly
Fulfill the prophecy
What's black is white
And this wrong is right

Now didn't he live, oh didn't he
And didn't he give, oh didn't he
But didn't he die for you and me

Bugler, blow your horn
Now the curtain's torn
And the battle's done I know
I know the victory's come
Drummer you drum your drum
He broke death's chains
The Lamb is slain

Now didn't he live, oh didn't he
And didn't he give, oh didn't he
But didn't he die for you and me

Now doesn't he live, my brother, doesn't he
Now doesn't he give, sweet sister, doesn't he
But didn't he die for you and me
But didn't he die for you and for me

From Larry Norman...

Great American Novel

Quote:
I was born and raised an orphan
in a land that once was free
in a land that poured its love out on the moon
and I grew up in the shadows
of your silos filled with grain
but you never helped to fill my empty spoon

and when I was ten you murdered law
with courtroom politics
and you learned to make a lie sound just like truth
but I know you better now
and I don't fall for all your tricks
and you've lost the one advantage of my youth

you kill a black man at midnight
just for talking to your daughter
then you make his wife your mistress
and you leave her without water
and the sheet you wear upon your face
is the sheet your children sleep on
at every meal you say a prayer
you don't believe but still you keep on

and your money says in God we trust
but it's against the law to pray in school
you say we beat the Russians to the moon
and I say you starved your children to do it

you are far across the ocean
but the war is not your own
and while you're winning theirs
you're gonna lose the one at home
do you really think the only way
to bring about the peace
is to sacrifice your children
and kill all your enemies

the politicians all make speeches
while the news men all take note
and they exaggerate the issues
as they shove them down our throats
is it really up to them
whether this country sinks or floats
well I wonder who would lead us
if none of us would vote

well my phone is tapped and my lips are chapped
from whispering through the fence
you know every move I make
or is that just coincidence
well you try to make my way of life
a little less like jail
if I promise to make tapes and slides
and send them through the mail

and your money says in God we trust
but it's against the law to pray in school
you say we beat the Russians to the moon
and I say you starved your children to do it
you say all men are equal all men are brothers
then why are the rich more equal than others
don't ask me for the answer I've only got one
that a man leaves his darkness when he follows the Son

And another from Larry:

Outlaw

Quote:
Some say he was an outlaw, that he roamed across the land,

With a band of unschooled ruffians and few old fishermen,

No one knew just where he came from, or exactly what he'd done,

But they said it must be something bad that kept him on the run.

Some say he was a poet, that he'd stand upon the hill

That his voice could calm an angry crowd and make the waves stand still,

That he spoke in many parables that few could understand,

But the people sat for hours just to listen to this man.

Some say a politician who spoke of being free,

He was followed by the masses on the shores of Galilee,

He spoke out against corruption and he bowed to no decree,

And they feared his strength and power so they nailed him to a tree.

Some say he was a sorcerer, a man of mystery,

He could walk upon the water, he could make a blind man see,

That he conjured wine at weddings and did tricks with fish and bread,

That he talked of being born again and raised people from the dead.

Some say he was the Son of God, a man above all men,

That he came to be a servant and to set us free from sin,

And that's who I believe he is cause that's what I believe,

And I think we should get ready cause it's time for us to leave.

One more from Larry:

Rock That Doesn't Roll

Quote:
I was lost and blind, when a friend of mine,
came and took me by the hand.
Then He led me to His kingdom, that was in another land.
Now my life has changed, it's rearranged,
when I think of my past I feel so strange.
Wowie, zowie, well He saved my soul,
He's the rock that doesn't roll.

He's the rock that doesn't roll,
He's the rock that doesn't roll,
Well He's good for the body and great for the soul,
He's the rock that doesn't roll.

I was all alone like a rolling stone,
I was going nowhere fast.
I was on the road so far from home,
when the future touched my past.
Now I feel so blessed, 'cause He gave me a rest.
And I finally feel like I passed my test,
I want to be like Him, yes that's my goal,
like a rock that doesn't roll.

He's the rock that doesn't roll,
He's the rock that doesn't roll,
Well He's good for the body and great for the soul,
He's the rock that doesn't roll.

I was lost and blind when a friend of mine,
came and took me by the hand,
and He led me to His kingdom that was in another land.
Now my mind is blown, my head has grown,
a Solid Rock and a rolling stone,
Wowie, zowie, well the Cat's got soul,
He's the Rock that doesn't roll.

He's the rock that doesn't roll,
He's the rock that doesn't roll,
Well He's good for the body and great for the soul,
He's the rock that doesn't roll.

He's the rock that doesn't, the rock that doesn't,
The rock that doesn't, the rock that doesn't,
You've got to rock me on the water,
You've got to rock me from the grave,
You've got to rock me till I'm feeling good,
You've got to rock me till, rock me till I'm saved.

He's the rock that doesn't roll,
He's the rock that doesn't roll,
Well He's good for the body and great for the soul,
He's the rock that doesn't roll.

Heartless by Kanye West

Heartless

In the night I hear them talk,
The coldest story ever told,
Somewhere far along this road
He lost his soul,
To a woman so Heartless
How could you be so heartless?

How could you be so
Cold as the winter wind when it breeze yo
Just remember that you talking to me yo
You need to watch the way you talking to me yo
I mean after all the things that we been through
I mean after all the things we got into
And yo I know of some things you things that you aint told me
Ayo I did some things but that's the old me
And now you wanna pay me back
You gon' show me
So you walk round like you don't know me
You got them new friend
Well I got homeys
But at the end it's still so lonely

In the night I hear them talk,
The coldest story ever told,
Somewhere far along this road
He lost his soul,
To a woman so heartless
How could you be so heartless?oh..
How could you be so heartless?

How could you be so Dr. Evil
You're bringing out a side of
Me that I don't know,
I decided we wasn't gonna speak so why are up 3 a.m. on the phone,
Why does she be so mad at me for, homey I don't know she hot and cold,

I won't stop and mess my groove up cause I already know how this thing goes,
You run and tell you're friends that you're leavin' me,
They say that they don't see what you see in me,
You wait a couple months then you gone' see,
You'll never find nobody better than me

In the night I hear them talk,
The coldest story ever told,
Somewhere far along this road
He lost his soul,
To a woman so heartless
How could you be so heartless? oh..
How could you be so heartless?

Talkin', talkin', talkin', talk
Baby lets just knock it off
They don't know what we been through
They don't know 'bout me and you
So I got something new to see
And you just gon' keep hatin' me
And we just gon' be enemies
I know you can't believe
I could just leave it wrong
And you can't make it right
I'm gon' take off tonight
Into the night...

In the night, I hear 'em talk,
The coldest story ever told.
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul.
To a woman so heartless...
How could you be so heartless? oh... How could you be so heartless.

100 in a 55

Pop evil 100 in a 55

Turn back on the broken heartache
Some things are just meant to be
I still believe that we got a chance
Still believe that we got a chance to be
Too much is never enough and
Too little is never enough
Full speed got me looking out my rear view
I can't go back

Chorus:
Goin' 100 in a 55 and I don't know why I'm still alive but I
Do what I can but I know I can't take anymore
I still believe in this rock and roll
And I pray the music gonna save my soul
But till then I still believe some things are just meant to be

It's messed up but I got this mission
Drunk again wont remember anyway
She said it's just a game boy
Don't be gone don't be gone for long
Ten years I've been doing this forever
Its all I know baby please don't turn away
I know you don't believe in me
But I do believe in you

I'm still falling
Away from here
Away from here
I'm still falling
The wings are falling off
I can't go back
I'm in too deep

I still believe
Some things are just meant to be

We wouldn't be mothers without our children. Here is my wish for mine.

For everyone who has ever cared for a child, happy Mother's Day.

"I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack -- 2000.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance
(Where those years have gone)

(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

From the early 70s this was recorded by some folks I knew back then. The male lead vocal was Bob (now Dr) Laurent. The group was called Good News Circle and began with Bob, his buddy Butch Hunt and their then girl-friends, later wives, Joyce and Joy when they attended Judson College in Elgin Illinois. By this album Joyce and Joy were both raising kids and Butch was about to leave to manage the whole music thing....

Bob was an incredible speaker and there is actually a short clip of him on Youtube.

Now for the song, done many times by many artists this is the version from Good News Circle:

Let There Be Peace On Earth.

I thought of Pariah this morning when I listened to this one. Maybe PSUBIKER, too.
(Guys, hope you can take a joke!)

These guys (Ludo) are a blast, though. You Southerners would get a kick out of their Lake Pontchartrain song.

Love Me Dead
Love Me Dead :
Love me cancerously
Like a salt-sore soaked in the sea.
'High-maintenance' means
You're a gluttonous queen
Narcissistic and mean.
Kill me romantically
Fill my soul with vomit
Then ask me for a piece of gum.
Bitter and dumb
You're my sugarplum.
You're awful, I love you!

CHORUS
She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

You're a faith-healer on T.V.
You're an office park without any trees
Corporate and cold
Gushing for gold
Leave me alone.
You suck so passionately
You're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature
finger-bangin' my heart
You call me up drunk
Does the fun ever start?
You're hideous and sexy!

REPEAT CHORUS

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

SOLO

Love me cancerously
Brrrot-dot-da-d-da-da!
How's your new boy?
Does he know about me?
You've got the mark of the beast.
You're born of a jackal! You're beautiful!

REPEAT CHORUS

Wha' 'bout that sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!
Posted By: stillhere8126 Re: Song for today... - 10/30/09 04:51 PM
This song usually inspires me....its like my mom, or my best friend or even God is talking to me...Like I tried to kill myself but for some reason I am still here and someone is tellin me to do somethin with that...



Life Starts Now lyrics by Three Days Grace


You say you feel so down
Every time I turn around
And you say you should've been gone by now
And you, you think that everything's wrong
You ask me how to carry on
We'll make it through another day just hold on.

Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow
And you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

I hate to see you fall down
I'll pick you up off of the ground
I've watched the weight of your world come down
And now it's your chance to move on
Change the way you've lived for so long
You find the strength you've had inside all along.

Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

All this pain
Take this life and make it yours.
All this hate take your heart and let it love again.
You will survive it somehow.

Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down.
Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down.
Life starts now.

You Never Let Go - song by Matt Redman


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIAdgLR1ZGw

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I'm caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won't turn back
I know you are near

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

(Chorus:)
Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We'll live to know You here on the earth

(Chorus)

Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You, still I will praise You

(Chorus 2x's)

Hadn't heard Metric before. Great song.

I love acappella music and that group is tight. The end when they clap just makes you sway. Love the message too.

We sang "A Mighty Fortress" in church two Sundays ago. Nice arrangement here.

I just discovered Owl City, thanks to my officemate. "Fireflies" is being played often on radio here and when it comes on, she and I turn it up and sing along. I'm also partial to the song "Hello Seattle" by Owl City. A cute little diddy.

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
In the hills and highlands
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
And awake in your mouth

Hello Seattle, I am a manta ray
Deep beneath the blue waves
I'll crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound
And construct a summer home

Hello Seattle, I am the crescent moon
Shining down on your face
I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill
And descend inside of you

Hello Seattle, I am a cold seahorse
Feeling warm in your sand
I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
Rolling in the evening breeze

Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
On the docks and moored boats
I sail above your inlets and interstates
Through the rain and open wind

Hello Seattle, I am an old lighthouse
Throwing beams of bright lights
Red in the morning, blue in the evening sun
Taking heed for everyone

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
In the hills and highlands
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots

Take me above your light
Carry me through the night
Hold me secure in flight
Sing me to sleep tonight

Take me above your light
Carry me through the night
Hold me secure in flight
Sing me to sleep tonight

I've sent this casting crown video to at least a dozen people that have emailed me for help over the last few years. As I recall, Dazed and his wife emailed me back having both just cried watching it (since by that time they had both taken the "slow fade" ride). I find it the most poignant adultery song & video EVER, see what you think?

Posted By: MrWondering Re: Song for today... - 11/13/09 03:42 PM
I just had to follow up this posting with the "Slow Fade" Casting Crowns Teaching Video that accompanies it. It gives some great insight into the song and concept behind it.

Casting Crowns is amazing. When DH was a music minister Mark Hall was the youth director. He lives what he sings. And yes, speaking as a former WW, Slow Fade is spot on.

It's so weird the songs I hear when I first get into the car in the morning.

Song #1: 'It's a Sin' - Pet Shop Boys
Song #2: 'Is She Really Going Out With Him' - Joe Jackson

Life in my world.

P.S. Yes, it's really me -- I'm just wearing a hat, wig and the funny glasses/big nose combo for the time being. Kinda of late in the game, I'm down on the scoreboard, and in need of some big plays. Website articles and MB Weekend could be my last best chance at putting some more points on the board.....

Boy, I need to elaborate. If anyone cares to help me out via regular e-mail, let me know. I sense things slipping away here....

As always, thanks,

Can't really follow that ....


but I heard this today and I do like Robbie - I don't think I've really really heard it since my mess up (bit eupemistic there, but you know what I mean) Robbie - Make me Pure


So I sing a song
To reel 'em in
It's a song I've sung before
And a song I'm gonna sing again
I mean every word
I don't mean a single one of them
Oh Lord, make me pure
- but not yet

Tell a joke, tell it twice
If no one else is laughing then why am I
I split my sides both times and laugh until I cry
Oh Lord, please make me pure, but not yet

I don't have to try
I just dial it in
I've never found a job that for me was worth bothering
I got a ton of selfish genes and lazy bones
beneath this skin
Oh Lord, make me pure, but not yet

Smoking kills
Sex sells
I've got one hand in my pocket but the other one looks cool as hell
I know I'm gonna die so my revenge is living well
Oh Lord, make me pure, but not yet

I stopped praying
So I hope this song will do
I wrote it all for you
I'm not perfect but you don't mind that, do you?
I know you're there to pull me through, aren't you?

So I look for love
I like the search
And I'll be standing for election all across the known universe
Every president get the country she deserves
Oh Lord, make me pure, but not yet

And I've been seeing
Somebody's wife
She said she'd leave him for me and I said that wasn't wise
You can't lie to a liar because of all the lies
Oh Lord, please make me pure,but not yet

www.youtube.comwatch?v=WWxFjufC24


For the young abandoned father left alone without a reason,
For the pilgrim in the city where there is no home.
For the son without a father for his solitary mother
I have a message

He sees you, He knows you,
He loves you, He loves you

Every heart that is breaking tonight
Is the heart of a child that He holds in His sight
And oh, how He longs to hold in His arms
Every heart that is breaking tonight.....

For the precious, fallen daughter, for her devastated father.
For the prodigal who's dying in a strange new way.
For the patriot with no country
I have a message......

He sees you, He knows you,
He loves you, He loves you....

Every heart that is breaking tonight
Is the heart of a child that He holds in His sight
And oh, how he longs to hold in His arms
Every heart that is breaking tonight.....

Aimee Mann - Stupid Thing



This is the best video that I could find. The company doesn't like to have their songs on youtube. Ugh.

Lyrics:

Nothing was saving our day
There was nothing to say,
But you said something anyway
Claiming I stepped out of line
Which forced you to leave me,
As if that idea was mine.

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted,
You stupid thing
Stopping it all before it even started

I bet you knew it would come
That's just like you, to sit back
And just play it dumb
One word of warning would help
But that sacrifice was made
Trying to save yourself

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing
Stopping it all before it even started

Maybe that's just how I am
To fall where I stand,
Or I'm weak for that kind of man
One who looks helpless and brave
But you turned into a coward
I don't care for the parts you saved.

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted:
Oh, you stupid thing.
Oh, you stupid thing.
Oh, you stupid thing.
Oh, you stupid thing.

Michael Stipe wrote this as a love song to the city of New York -- the band viewed it as their home away from home. Obviously, not a "traditional" relationship, but he wanted the lyrics to convey the deep feelings that can exist between two people who are in love. Most thought-provoking line:

"It's easier to leave than be left behind."

Leaving New York" by REM

It's quiet now
And what it brings
Is everything

Comes calling back
A brilliant night
I'm still awake

I looked ahead
I'm sure I saw you there

You don't need me
To tell you now
That nothing can compare

You might have laughed if I told you
You might have hidden A frown
You might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around

It's easier to leave than to be left behind
Leaving was never my proud
Leaving New York, never easy
I saw the light fading out

Now life is sweet
And what it brings
I tried to take
But loneliness
It wears me out
It lies in wait

And I've lost
Still in my eyes
The shadow of necklace
Across your thigh
I might've lived my life in a dream, but I swear
This is real
Memory fuses and shatters like glass
Mercurial future, forget the past
It's you, it's what I feel.

You might have laughed if I told you (it's pulling me apart)
You might have hidden a frown (change)
You might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart)
I might have been turned around (change)

It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
Leaving was never my proud (change)
Leaving New York, never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out
You find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart
You find it in your heart, change...

I told you, forever
I love you, forever
I told you, I love you
I love you, forever
I told you, forever
You never, you never
You told me forever

You might have laughed if I told you
You might have hidden the frown
You might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around

It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
Leaving was never my proud (change)
Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the life fading out (change)
Leaving New York, never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out (change)
Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the life fading out (change)

Not a song, but a poem for today

Children Learn What They Live (1998)

by Dorothy Law Nolte (1924 - 2005)

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Darby's Castle
Quote:
See the ruin on the hill, where the smoke is hanging still,
Like an echo of an age long forgotten.
There's a story of a home crushed beneath those blackened stones,
And the roof that fell before the beams were rotten.

Cecil Darby loved his wife, and he laboured all his life,
To provide her with material possessions.
And he built for her a home of the finest wood and stone.
And the building soon became his sole obsession.

Oh, it took three-hundred days, for the timbers to be raised,
And the silhouette was seen for miles around.
And the gables reached as high as the eagles in the sky,
But it only took one night to bring it down,
When Darby's castle tumbled to the ground.

Though they shared a common bed, there was precious little said,
In the moments that were set aside for sleepin'.
For his busy dreams were filled with the rooms he'd yet to build,
And he never heard young Helen Darby weeping.

Then one night he heard a sound, as he laid his pencil down,
And he traced it to her door and turned the handle.
And the pale light of the moon through the window of the room,
Split the shadows where two bodies lay entangled.

Oh, it took three-hundred days, for the timbers to be raised,
And the silhouette was seen for miles around.
And the gables reached as high as the eagles in the sky,
But it only took one night to bring it down,
When Darby's castle tumbled to the ground.

Nobody ever looked back on their life from their death bed and said, "I wish I'd spent a lot more time at work..."

"Calling All Angels" by Train



I need a sign to let me know you're here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere
I need to know that things are gonna look up
'Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head
When you feel the world shake from the words that are said

[Chorus:]
And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels

I won't give up if you don't give up [Repeat x4]

I need a sign to let me know you're here
'Cause my TV set just keeps it all from being clear
I want a reason for the way things have to be
I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me

[Chorus]

When children have to play inside so they don't disappear
While private eyes solve marriage lies cause we don't talk for years
And football teams are kissing Queens
and losing sight of having dreams
In a world that what we want is only what we want until it's ours

[Chorus x2]

Calling all you angels [Repeat till fade]

Skald was singing this to me the other day and it made me cry.



Quote:
Yea yea
Dancin' in the dark middle of the night
Takin' your heart and holdin' it tight
Emotional touch touchin' my skin
And asking you to do what you've been doin' all over again

Oh it's a beautiful thing don't think I can keep it all in
I just gotta let you know what it is that won't let me go

It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under
Oh it's your love

Better than I was, more than I am
And all of this happened by taking your hand
And who I am now is who I wanted to be
And now that we're together,
I'm stronger than ever
I'm happy and free

Oh it's a beautiful thing,
Don't think I can keep it all in
If you asked me why I've changed,
All I gotta do is say your sweet name

It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under
Oh, it's your love

Baby, Oh oh, oh,

Oh it's a beautiful thing,
Don't think I can keep it all in
I just gotta let you konw what it is that won't let me go

It's your love
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder
About the spell I'm under,
Oh it's your love
It's your love, it's your love, it's your love

Halle, hallelujah
Halle, hallelujah
Halle, hallelujah

Come now, let it shine so bright
To the knowing Light of the stable
Kneel close to the Child so dear
Cast aside your fear and be thankful

Hail, hail to the newborn King
Let our voices sing Him our praises
Hail, hail to the guiding Light
That brought us tonight to our Savior

chorus

Hail, hail to the newborn King
Let our voices sing Him our praises
Hail, hail to the guiding Light
That brought us tonight to our Savior

"God bless us, every one." - Tiny Tim, A Christmas Carol

I'm glad this thread was bumped...a few days ago I heard this song and it reminded me of what my DH and I did right after Plan B ended...we got small matching blue stars tattooed on our wrists (he has two, I have one to make the "three blue stars" from this song).

It was his idea (he had to talk to me into it) but knowing how much it meant to him and that it was from this song called "Built to Last", I agreed:

Built to Last by the Grateful Dead:

There are times when you can beckon,
There are times when you must call.
You can take a lot of reckoning,
But you can't take it all.

There are times when I can help you out,
And times when you must fall.
There are times when you must live in doubt
And I can't help at all.

Three blue stars rise on the hill
Say no more now just be still
All these trials soon be past
Look for something built to last

A wind held by the collar,
Yes, a cloud held by the breeze
You can walk on coals of fire
But sometimes you must freeze

There are times when you offend me
And I do the same to you
If we can't or won't forget it
I guess we could be through

One blue star sets on the hill
Call it back you never will
One more star sinks in the past
Show me something built to last

Built to last till time itself falls tumbling from the wall
Built to last till sunshine fails and darkness moves on all
Built to last while years roll past like cloudscapes in the sky
Show me something built to last and something built to try

There are times when you get hit upon
Try hard but you cannot give
Other times you'd gladly part
With what you need to live

Don't waste your breath to save your face
When you have done your best
And even more is asked of you
Fate will decide the rest

All the stars are gone but one
Morning breaks here comes the sun
Cross the sky now sinking fast
Show me something built to last

For the repentant FWSs in hopes that you will not only find forgiveness from your BS but also from yourself and start a clean slate:

:



Quote:
In this farewell, There is no blood
There is no alibi
Cause I've drawn regret
From the truth
Of a thousands lies
So let mercy come and wash away

What I've Done
I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
and let go of what I've done

Put to rest, What you thought of me
Well, I clean this slate
With the hands, Of uncertainty
So let mercy come, And Wash away

What I've Done
I'll face myself
Tto cross what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done

For what I've done
I start again
And whatever pain may come
Today this ends
I'm forgiving what I've done

I'll face myself
To cross out what I've become
Erase myself
And let go of what I've done
(Na,Na,Na)

What I've Done
What I've Done
Forgetting what I've done

I think there is a level of forgiveness here but I recognize I'm nowhere near it. Maybe some folks out there are in this place. I wonder what it feels like....

"In the Sun"
Michael Stipe (REM) and Chris Martin (Coldplay)

I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you

I know i would apologize if i could see in your eyes
'Cause when you showed me myself,you know, i became someone else
But i was caught in between all you wish for and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
A nightmare comes
You can't keep awake

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you

'Cause if i find
If i find my own way
How much will i find
If i find
If i find my own way
How much will i find
You

I don't know anymore
What it's for
I'm not even sure
If there is anyone who is in the sun
Will you help me to understand
'Cause i been caught in between all you wish for and all you need
Maybe you're not even sure what it's for
Any more than me

May God's love be with you
Always
May God's love be with you
Always

Here's a song I wrote when WW and I were in the middle of the storm. This was my healing song and the process of writing it helped me get through a dark dark time. If someone get's something out of it I'd consider myself honored. Feel free to download it or stream it

Right before your eyes

Right Before Your Eyes
Ive been around the world
Searchin for a miracle
Been looking for something
to ease my troubled mind
I took the wrong road
I took the easy way out
I was runnin scared
All my life

Its funny how the simple things
Can slowly pass you by
Bridges burn and castles crumble
Before you realize

That everything that you need
Is right before your eyes
Youd trip on it if youd get any closer
Before youd realize
That the answer
Is right before your eyes

And in my darkest hour
I feel the power of the truth
Come crashin like a storm
Down on me
Theres no more defenses
Theres no more denial
Cause only truth
Can set will set you free

Its funny how the simple things
Can slowly pass you by
Bridges burn and castles crumble
Before you realize

That everything that you need
Is right before your eyes
Youd trip on it if youd get any closer
Before youd realize
That the truth
Is right before your eyes

Ive been runnin so long looking for a clue
But every step I take just leads back to you

Everything that you need
Is right before your eyes
Youd trip on it if youd get any closer
Before youd realize
That the truth
Is right before your eyes

This song speaks to me...

Lyrics to Outsider, by "The Panic Channel":

I'm silent
in the rolling wake
of lucky and adored
ugly
a blur on the side
so easily ignored

speechless
in my screaming way
they all laugh and smile
spotlights
give the loved a stage
but only burn the shy

I will always be the outsider
will I always walk the road alone?

disguised
so the crowd can't see
my strategies and plans
the last
of the shopworn secrets
no one understands

I will always be the outsider
will I always walk the road alone?
will I always find it hard to
make this world of lies
my own

I'd give it all
all to find my way
inside you
I can't fake myself round
to fit the hole
that hides in you
looking at me
I know just what you'd say
if you cared

I will always be the outsider
will I always walk the road alone?
will I always find it hard to
so hard to
make this
world of lies
my own

Godsmack "Serenity"

As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
I take another deep breath
And feel the wind pass through my body
I'm the one in your soul
Reflecting inner light
Protect the ones who hold you
Cradling your inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Tragic visions slowly stole my life
Tore away everything
Cheating me out of my time
I'm the one who loves you
No matter wrong or right
And every day I hold you
I hold you with my inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Let It Be Me lyrics
Ray Lamontagne


There comes a time
A time in everyone's life
When nothing seems to go their way
When nothing seems to turn out right
There may come a time
You just can't seem to find your place
For every door you open
Seems like you get two slammed in your face

That's when you need someone
Someone that you can call
When all your faith is gone
It feels like you can't go on
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it's a friend you need
Let it be me
Let it be me

Feels like you always coming up last
Pockets full of nothing
Ain't got no cash
Don't matter where you turn
You ain't got no place to stand
You reach out for something and they slap your hand

I remember all too well
Just how it feels to be all alone
You feel like you'd give anything
For just a little place you can call your own

That's when you need someone
Someone that you can call
When all your faith is gone
It feels like you can't go on
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it's a friend you need
Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it's a friend you need
Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me

This is for all of the BW's who need some confidence. I LOVE this song.

You left me like a broken doll
In pieces as I took the fall
for you, you dumb chump!
You left me free-falling like space junk
Burning up in the atmosphere of life

Well I sound like a philosopher
but I'm a fool who's off her rocker
'Cause I let you in my heart that one last time

I've had enough, made up my mind
I'm gonna get up and out and wahhh!

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm
I'm gonna be okay! Uh huh
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now
'Cause it's your last look
Your last look forever

Well look at you you're all puffed up
In that big red truck- but you're outta luck (this time)
Well, that's tough
'Cause I'm on fire- too hot to touch
with a chatroom full of lovers on the line
Gonna step right up. Spit shine my soul
I'm gonna be proud and loud and outta control!

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm
I'm gonna be okay! Uh huh
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now
'Cause it's your last look
Your last look forever

I'm lookin' in the mirror and I like what I see:
I've lost the fear & the horror that's been eating at me
'Cause being with you is like a hangman's noose
I was living my life in dead man's shoes

I've had enough. Made up my mind
I'm gonna get up and out and wahhh!

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm
I'm gonna be okay! Uh huh
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
You're dead and gone
I'm gonna get my way
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now
'Cause it's your last look
Your last look forever!!

I love myself today [x7]


I may not agree with all of the words, but the sentiment is good. Very empowering.

On the Vacation Thread on the Recovery Forum, Cinders linked to a song she said was "gritty." As soon as I thought about that word for a second, I thought of this cut, from B.B.King.



The lyrics: (at least one version of them)
Quote:
Been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
I've been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
Our love is nothin' but the blues
Baby how blue can you get

My love is like a fire
Your love is like a cigarette
My love is like a fire
But baby yours is like a cigarette
I watch you step down on it baby and crush it
Tell me how, tell me how, how blue can you get

You're evil when I'm with you
and you're jealous when we're apart
Yes you're evil when I'm with you baby
You're jealous when we're apart
How blue can you get, Baby
The answer's right here in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford
and you just said I want a Cadillac
I bought you a ten dollar dinner
You said Thanks for the snack
I let you live in my penthouse
You said it was just a shack
I gave you seven children
and now you wanna give 'em back

I've been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
Our love is nothin' but the blues
Baby how blue can you get

For those struggling to get back on track:

Quote:
I'd gladly walk across the desert
With no shoes upon my feet
To share with you the last bite of bread I had to eat
I would swim back to save you
In your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinking
Let me show you what love means

Love can build a Bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a Bridge
Don't you think it's time?
Don't you think it's time?

I would whisper love so loudly
Every heart could understand
That love and only love
Can join the tribes of man
I would give my heart's desire
So that you might see
The first step is to realize
That it all begins with you and me

Love can build a Bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a Bridge
Don't you think it's time?
Oh, don't you think it's time?

When we stand together
It's our finest hour
We can do anything, anything
Anything, anything
Keep believin' in the power

Love can build a Bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a Bridge
Don't you think it's time?
Don't you think it's time?

Heroes Lesson


Heroes - Wallflowers

Verse 1
I
I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins
Like dolphins can swim
Though nothing
Will keep us together
We can beat them
For ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes
Just for one day

verse2
I
I will be king
And you
You will be queen
Though nothing
Will drive them away
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be us
Just for one day

verse3
I
I can remember
Standing
By the wall
And the guns
Shot above our heads
And we kissed
As though nothing could fall
And the shame
Was on the other side
Oh we can beat them
For ever and ever
Then we can be Heroes
Just for one day

outro
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes
We're nothing
And nothing will help us
Maybe we're lying
Then you better not stay
But we could be safer
Just for one day

Too Gone Too Long
Quote:
You've been too gone,for too long,
it's too late to come back now
It's been so long since you walked out my door
now you're just an old song nobody sings anymore
I gotta a new love and she's the true love
but darlin' how could you have known?
you've been too gone, for too long
now it's too late to come back home

You've came a long way, goin' the wrong way
don't even set your suitcase down
You wanted to roam, now you're paying the bills
you're an old rollin' stone who rode over the hills
I had a good cry when you said "Goodbye"
I didn't wanna let you go
but you've been too gone for too long
now it's too late to come back home

I had a good cry when you said "Goodbye"
I didn't wanna let you go
but you've been too gone for too long
so why don't you just stay gone?
now you've been too gone for too long
now it's too late to come back home

Written by the great Hank Snow, this version is from Roy Orbison...

I'd Be A Legend In My Time
Quote:
If heartaches brought fame in love's crazy game

I'd be a legend in my time

If they gave gold statues for tears and regrets

I'd be a legend in my time.



But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame

For a heart that's been broken over love that's in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim then everyone would know my name

I'd be a legend in my time.

Quote:
We're the best partners this world's ever seen,
Together as close as can be.
But sometimes it's hard to find time in between,
To tell you what you mean to me.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you're tired, rest your head on my arm.
Rose of my heart.

When sorrow holds you in its arms of clay,
It's rain drops that fall from your eyes.
Your smile's like the sun come to earth for a day,
You brighten my blackest of skies.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you're cold, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

So hard times or easy times, what do I care,
There's nothing I'd change if I could.
The tears and the laughter are things that we share,
Your hand in mine makes it good.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you're cold, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not fading nor falling apart,
If you're cold, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

I was watching Space Channel and Star trek:Enterprise came on. I think the theme song is PERFECT.

It's been a long road
Getting from there to here
It's been a long time
But my time is finally near

And I can feel the change in the winds right now
Nothing's in my way
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No there not gonna hold me down

Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith
Faith of the heart

It's been a long night
Trying to find my way
Been through the darkness
Now I finally have my day
And I will see my dreams come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No there not gonna change my mind

Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
Faith of the heart

I've known a wind so cold and seen the darkest days
But now the winds I feel, are only winds of change
I've been through the fire and I've been through the rain
But I'll be fine

Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith


I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith
Faith of the heart

It's been a long road

Oh, it's been long road

Holding On lyrics

There goes the sun

Just trying to find your way anywhere
But youve come to find youre alone
Its getting dark and youve lost your way
I havent let you go as long as you know that..

Im losing whats left of my dignity
But ill fight till the end for her heart
Ill never give up for whats possibly
For better for worse this love must be cursed

Just try to keep your head down
But you come to find that trust has come and gone
Everyone out there is listening
But you dont care at all and youre probably glad to know

Im losing whats left of my dignity
But ill fight till the end for her heart
Ill never give up for whats possibly
For better for worse this love must be cursed

You already let it pass through your lips you cant take it back now [x4]

Im losing whats left of my dignity
But ill fight till the end for her heart
Ill never give up for whats possibly
For better for worse this love must be cursed

Holding on to her
This love must be cursed
Im holding on to her
This love must be cursed
Im holding on

Im afraid to say she never made it home
Couldnt keep her head on
She was so close
Im afraid to say she never made it home [x5

and this one too laugh

All in all- Lifehouse

Standing on top of the edge it feels like it's going down
Everything stays in my mind feeling in a daze on the ground
Feels like it's gonna give life's to hard to live anymore
I think I've had enough things too tough
I'm out the door

All in all it's just another day now
You're falling down
What you gonna do
Standing on top of the world tonight
No ones looking back at you

Stand tall
It's going on
It's going on
It's gonna be just fine
You're holding on
Holding on today

Things don't stop and the others announced they're moving on
Salt & tears in the minds in the mouths of a bad decision
Too late for another mistake it's bringing me down
With all your faults it isn't your fault
what's going on

All in all it's just another day now
You're falling down
What you gonna do
Standing on top of the world tonight
No ones looking back at you

Stand tall
It's going on
It's going on
It's gonna be just fine
You're holding on
Holding on today

So you lost yourself
So you lost your way
Found life through someone else
But you threw it all away

All in all it's just another day now
You're falling down
What you gonna do
Standing on top of the world tonight
No ones looking back at you

Stand tall
It's going on
It's going on
It's gonna be just fine
You're holding on
Holding on today

Times rolling on
rolling on today
It's going on
Going on today

I was out mowing the lawn today listening to an unreleased album from a sadly unheralded band called Little Feat (although they've been one of my favorites for years!) and on came one of Alan Toussaint's songs they made popular, "On Your Way Down"
Quote:
On Your Way Down
-- Alan Toussaint

Sunrise
Sunset
Since the beginning it hasn't changed yet
People fly high begin to lose sight
You can't see very clearly when you're in flight

It's high time that you found
The same people you misuse on your way up
You might meet up
On your way down

Vintage wines from the year '62
It's your thing, it's your thing
It pleases you
You got to frown when you cross town
You think it's an honor just to have you around

It's high time that you found
The same dudes you misuse on your way up
You might meet up
On your way down

You think the sun rises and sets for you
But the same sun rises, sets and shines
On the poor folks too
I don't mind you turning round
I myself would even like a little higher ground

It's high time that you found
The same people you walk on on your way up
You might meet up
On your way down
On your way down

Sadly, I can't find a YouTube video of Feat doing this number, but there is a passable version done by Gov't Mule:

Gone Forever"

Don't know what's going on
Don't know what went wrong
Feels like a hundred years I
Still can't believe you're gone
So I'll stay up all night
With these bloodshot eyes
While these walls surround me with the story of our life

I feel so much better
Now that you're gone forever
I tell myself that I don't miss you at all
I'm not lying, denying that I feel so much better now
That you're gone forever

Now things are coming clear
And I don't need you here
And in this world around me
I'm glad you disappeared
So I'll stay out all night
Get drunk and f'in fight
Until the morning comes I'll
Forget about our life

I feel so much better
Now that you're gone forever
I tell myself that I don't miss you at all
I'm not lying, denying that I feel so much better now
That you're gone forever

First time you screamed at me
I should have made you leave
I should have known it could be so much better
I hope you're missing me
I hope I've made you see
That I'm gone forever

And now it's coming clear
That I don't need you here
And in this world around me
I'm glad you disappeared

I feel so much better
Now that you're gone forever
I tell myself that I don't miss you at all
I'm not lying, denying that I feel so much better now
That you're gone forever
And now you're gone forever
And now you're gone forever

In a relax and let the insults of life wash over you vein -

I ran across an old friend this morning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0lPajuq-Mg&a=bHuhs8O4Bh0&playnext_from=ML&playnext=1

These guys were new age before new age was a buzzword.

This tune always made me think of floating in air. So I made a tape of it and carried it with me when I soloed in my ultralight many years ago. I also listened to it continuously while soaring off the cliffs of the Na Pali Coast after the first D-Day of the VLTA.

Helped me along, it did.

Also reminds me of Hebrides Overture (Fingals Cave).

[The site Weaves, 2L and I usually post tunes for each other is down today. So I thought I would place this here for all to hear.]
Posted By: weaver Re: Song for today... - 06/21/10 06:56 PM
They are down again for some reason.

This song is not about an affair or a d-day in my life, or any thing like that, it's about my DH and the way he keeps saying "yes, but that was before!!!!!!"

To explain, he left me a few months ago. He packed up everything he owned (and even some of the stuff I owned naughty) and headed back up north. He did say I could go with him, if I wanted to. confused But, it seemed really closer to an after thought, than a request, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, I let him go. I have moved three different times since I married him and wasn't about to move again. Plus, he was acting really wayward in my opinion, so I thought it best to stay put and let him go.

After a few weeks he asked to come back. I have to say that I was really heartbroken and having a very, very hard time, but I didn't let on. I just decided I would be okay and it was probably for the best and to let him go. I did a little plan A on the phone by not love busting, but I certainly wasn't trying to meet any of his needs. I was just trying to act with grace and class, even though inside and to my friends, I was a basket case.

Now, he is back and we are both working hard to make this marriage work and to be good to the other.

Anyway, this song is for him. Even though he doesn't read here and does not especially like this place. Actually, he can't stand it.

So, maybe this is for me. It's a great tune, and I happened to have seen Jonny Lang in a bar in my home town when he was about 16 years old, and he was incredible. I normally can't stand blues, but his voice is just unbelievable.

Do you know what his needs are? Does he know what his needs are?

And, also important, do either of you know what your needs are?

That's a nice song, Mark. He's quite the guitarist.

Ap,

I know what both of ours are, and we have talked about them a few times, but I am kind of in self protect mode still. I don't totally trust him not to take off again, so I am not really that secure in giving him all my love in that way again, yet.

He is kind of selfish (not to strangers or homeless people, though, just me and his marriage).

I could be making a mistake in not consciously meeting all his needs (I do meet some naturally), but when I do he doesn't meet mine and then I get ticked off and my taker comes roaring out.

I'll put some more thought into it and try to decide if I could meet all his E/N's regularly it would cause him to fall madly in love with me again. But, I don't know, he's more of a wayward, entitled mentality than a committed to marriage kind of person, unfortunately for me. I'm not saying he's a bad person, or trying to bad mouth him in anyway as he does have a lot of good qualities, just too used to being single, maybe.

I'll think about it and maybe start a thread in the future to get some of the others' opinions.

Ask him?

Write that very question down (so you have it the way you want it) and give it to him.


eta: According to Dr H, wife falling madly in love with me would be precisely the fully guaranteed result of me meeting her ENs. LOL. Not by a long shot. I was meeting them all, all along (even according to her) and in the way she wanted them met. Redoubling my efforts after DDay 1 of the VLTA did not make her love me. Redoubling again after DDay 2 did not make her love me either. If anything she started thinking I am a fool. But, maybe thats just due to my incompetence. You might be better at meeting ENs than I am. I no longer care one way or the other. Might still be worth a shot for you though...
Posted By: weaver Re: Song for today... - 06/25/10 05:25 AM
She was the fool, Ap.

And yes, I should probably just ask him. I'm still going to protect myself emotionally and financially. Someone who leaves so easily has proven that leaving is easy for them.

Heck, I can't stand it either! Paraphrasing those old Listerine commercials: "Marriage Builders? I HATE IT! ...but I use it 2wice a day!"

Best relationships are where the partners recognize that it isn't their responsibility 2 make their spouse do anything, including (especially) love them. The best relationships are between 2 individuals who don't "need" their needs met, but choose 2 meet (or exceed) their partner's needs because they want 2.

I'm with Frank Pittman. People who believe they can (or should) sustain romantic love indefinitely are fooling themselves. It is the "caring love" that the Harleys describe that is sustaining.

Having said that, I'm an incurable romantic, I think:

Thank goodness this is a load of CRAP. Anyone who has actually used this program in the way it is intended will tell you that it is ROMANTIC LOVE that is sustaining. Caring love does not sustain anything other than peaceful co-existance. That is not what Dr Harley subscribes.

First off, Dr Harley does not say that his program works in a marriage where one spouse refuses or refuses to participate. Where does he ever guarantee to FORCE your spouse to fall in love against her will? That is ridiculous.

You are setting false standards for Dr Harley's program and then declaring his program a failure by these arbitrary, insane standards.

What Dr Harley does recommend for marriages where one spouse refuses to participate in a program of recovery is PLAN B to be vacated only when the WS agrees to participate in the program. You did not do that.

You can't blame Dr Harley for your wife's failure to participate and your failure to utilize Plan B in the manner subscribed.

A program can only work if you work it, Aphelion. I am sorry you and your wife chose to NOT work this program, but that is not Dr Harley's fault.

2Long, here is what Dr Harley believes and I hardly think he is "fooling himself." He actually tests the strength of this program by giving a test to his clients to measure the level of ROMANTIC LOVE they feel for one another. He doesn't just make willy nilly, unsubstantiated claims:

Quote:
The difference between my approach to saving marriages, and the approach of most other therapists, is that I focus on building romantic love (being "in love") between spouses, rather than simply focusing on conflict resolution. As it turns out, I also address conflict resolution, but I do it in a way that builds love between spouses.

Since most marital therapists fail to address the romantic love issue when they try to help couples, their approach to conflict resolution usually fails to build love, and as a result, the couples divorce, even after "resolving" some of their conflicts.

<snip>

My experience with couples agrees with the results of this study. In successful marriages, spouses expect to change to accommodate each other's needs, so when a spouse registers a complaint, it's a signal for action. In failed marriages, on the other hand, spouses expect to be accepted as they are, without change. A complaint is interpreted as an unwillingness to love unconditionally, a failure of the complaining spouse. So instead of adjusting to the complaint, the defense is offered, "if you really loved me, you would not try to change me. You would let me continue to do whatever it is I'm doing."

entire article here


You seem to have bought into the crap that most therapists sell, that romantic love is impossible. And yes it is for them and their clients. That is where Marriage Builders differs from the others.

2funny, Mel! I don't really think that the Harleys are so inflexible that they can't apply different approaches 2 solving marital problems. That was my experience with Steve, at any rate.

Frank Pittman:
Quote:
People who think they can't endure life unless they are "in love" are dangerous. After thirty-seven years in the trenches of family therapy and thirty-seven years in a totally committed, totally realistic marriage, I have come to see "romantic love" as an absurd, albeit delicious, crisis-induced escape from sanity, a narcissistic intoxication with no relationship to loving


Quote:
Despite it all, if one is unpartnered and alone, romantic love can be a resolution to loneliness as magically ecstatic and lifesaving as Robinson Crusoe's spotting of the footsteps in the sand. While it will not last, the fact that it was once there and that memories of it can be conjured up from time to time makes a resultant marriage feel special and right. Of course misery (and/or an extensive sexual and romantic supporting cast) can result if the partners are so foolish as to require continuation of their romantic high for a lifetime.


Quote:
John Gottman finds in What Predicts Divorce that long-term marital satisfaction comes from factors such as companionship and friendship, and the ability to provide support, validation, and understanding, rather than passion and in-loveness. It seems to me dangerous for people to stake their happiness in life on romantic love. They are ecstatic when they experience that most engulfing flight from reality, but miserable when they don't. Romance can pull you out of a funk, but it has far more side effects than Prozac.

I have to disagree based on personal experience. I was in-love with my ex-husband everyday for the entire 10 years that we were married (and several months after that). He met my needs (I thought) and I loved him in every sense of the word. He was not in-love with me, he was deceptive, unfaithful and he left me. That did not change my feelings for him until I realized that I was in-love with his presentation of himself - not the real man.

Thanks for making my point that other therapists don't know how to create romantic love. Why would anyone be interested in that "approach," 2Long? Who wants a mediocre marriage? That is not what I am here for.

The Harleys are here to make great marriages, not mediocre ones. They don't have "TWO" approaches to GREAT marriages, but ONE approach that leads to romantic love. In your quotes, those therapists don't even believe it is possible, much less know how to acheive it.

So why would anyone follow a failed approach?

2long, isn't it kind of bad form to sit here on this website, provided by Dr. Harley, and deny everything that Dr. Harley stands for? I'm talking about romantic love.

If you wanted to question Dr. Harley's conclusions in open debate, I'm sure most of us would welcome that. But you're not rationally analyzing and considering objections to Dr. Harley's conclusions, nor did you make any real attempt to answer the objections MelodyLane offered to what you were saying.

You're passing a completely fraudulent claim that pursuing a different GOAL is simply another APPROACH. The GOAL of Marriage Builders is Romantic Love. Practitioners who deny that Romantic Love is realistic are obviously not merely following a different approach to the same goal; they must have a completely different goal (or no goal) in mind, since they deny that that the Marriage Builders goal is possible!

Misrepresenting this denial of the Marriage Builders goal as different "approach" and making ad hominem attacks at anyone who disagrees with those quotes as "inflexible" may fill some need you have, but it does not represent your case well, and it makes you look quite ungracious to your hosts, Dr. Harley's Marriage Builders practice, which believes in the goal of romantic love.

Can you explain why you think denying the possibility of romantic love is a valid way to approach the goal of romantic love?

Yeah. The Beatles' lyrics started out so "up" "bubble-gum" and innocent. Then they progressively got darker...all kinds of weird stuff.

I used to joke that they went from "I Want to Hold Your Hand" to "Why Don't We Do It In the Road"

The ugliest love song....and it's really unfortunate because the entire song ROCKS, until you get what it's really about...is "Layla". And I really used to like Eric Clapton.

If it weren't for people like you opposing Dr. Harley's conclusions and claiming that one opinion is as good as another, I would've gotten on here years ago.

Good riddance to anyone who wants to sit here and ruin this forum as a place for learning Marriage Builders. You obviously have some other place you are posting. Go save marriages there, if you are so great. I want to learn Marriage Builders here.
