02:11 pm - Let's wake this community up, people!
She Waits
The Hal Sparks Band
(Yes, that Hal Sparks.)

Told her all I'll ever want
And all I'll ever need
Is just enough to make me leave
I can't tell when the magic fades
And there's nothing up my sleeve
But it's hard to know I believe

Chorus
She waits
And I pretend that I'm not comin' back
She waits
For me to find my way back home again
She waits
I never thought she would
She waits . . .

Tell her that I've been in love
But I've never had a friend
I'm always starting at the end
Better that I leave this place
Than break apart a home
How much can I hurt if I'm
On my own?

Chorus
She waits
And I pretend that I'm not comin' back
She waits
For me to find my way back home again
She waits
I never thought she would
She waits . . .

[guitar solo]

Chorus
She waits
And I pretend that I'm not comin' back
She waits
For me to find my way back home again
She waits
I never thought she would
She waits . . .
For good . . .

10:23 pm - Just think about the words. It's about obsession.
Like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick tick tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall
Like the drip drip drip of the raindrops
When the summer shower is through
So a voice within me keeps repeating
You, you, you

Night and day
You are the one
Only you beneath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It’s no matter darling where you are
I think of you
Night and Day

Day and night
Why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffic’s boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
Night and day

Night and day
Under the hide of me
There’s an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And this torment won’t be through
Until you let me spend my life making love to you

Day and night
Night and day

"She Will Be Loved"

Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her
She always belonged to someone else

I drove for miles and miles
And wound up at your door
I've had you so many times but somehow
I want more

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn't matter anymore

It's not always rainbows and butterflies
It's compromise that moves us along
My heart is full and my door's always open
You can come anytime you want

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

I know where you hide
Alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

Tap on my window knock on my door
I want to make you feel beautiful

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved
And she will be loved

[in the background]
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye
Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

Yeah
[softly]
I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain

Try so hard to say goodbye

'Cause all I see is what's in front of me
And that's you

Well, I've been dragged all over the place
I've taken hits time just don't erase
and baby I can see you've been fucked with too
But that don't mean your loving days are through
Cause people will say all kinds of things

Cause all I see is what's in front of me

YO SHORTIES...

I joined. Yeah I'm cool...


I think I'll start out with a wee little bit of THE ROLLING STONES??? Hows about it?


19th Nervous Breakdown by The Rolling Stones



You're the kind of person you meet at certain dismal, dull affairs
Center of a crowd, talking much too loud, running up and down the stairs
Well, it seems to me that you have seen too much in too few years
And though you've tried you just can't hide your eyes are edged with tears

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown

When you were a child you were a treated kind
Byt you were never brought up right
You were always spoiled with a thousand toys but still you cried all night
Your mother who neglected you owes a million dollars tax
And your father's still perfecting ways of making ceiling wax

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
Oh, who's to blame, that girl's just insane
Well, nothing I do don't seem to work
It only seems to make the matters worse. Oh, please

You were still in school when you had that fool who really messed your mind
And after that you turned your back on treating people kind
On our first trip I tried so hard to rearrange your mind
But after awhile I realized you were disarranging mine

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown
Oh, who's to blame, that girl's just insane
Well, nothing I do don't seem to work
It only seems to make the matters worse. Oh, please

When you were a child you were treated kind
But you were never brought up right
You were always spoiled with a thousand toys but still you cried all night
Your mother who neglected you owes a million dollars tax
And you father's still perfecting ways of making sealing wax

You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here comes your nineteenth nervous breakdown






What can I say? I thought it was appropriate...

06:19 pm - Lucky Boys Confusion - Broken
Looking down from the skybox, watching the whole block
Throw 'em in the air if you hate me now
Not getting your truce, getting loose
Like the noose on my neck
I'm bringing the next suburban curse
If I make it baby you can drive my hearse
We're getting close man, toe to toe man, here we go
Here we go, never gonna see me broken
Here we go, they're never gonna see me broken
Here we go, gonna keep my eyes open
So tell me who do you think you're defeating?
Looking out from the cellblock, watching the door lock,
Throw 'em in the air cause you hate you now
Expect nothing less, just confess
You cut me off at my legs,
No, I won't beg
I'm older now, I won't sit here never making a sound
We're getting close, toe to toe
Here we go,
Not broken,
Here we go, never gonna see me broken
Here we go, they're never gonna see me broken
Here we go, gonna keep my eyes open
Here we go, gonna stay so outspoken
Until you eat out your heart still beating
Who do you think you're defeating?

Who I Am
Jessica Andrews

If I live to be a hundred
And never see the seven wonders
That'll be alright
If I don't make it to the big leagues
If I never win a Grammy
I'm gonna be just fine
Cause I know exactly who I am

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am

So when I make a big mistake
And when I fall flat on my face
I know I'll be alright
Should my tender heart be broken
I will cry those teardrops knowing
I will be just fine
Cause nothing changes who I am

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am

I'm a saint and I'm a sinner
I'm a loser; I'm a winner
I am steady and unstable
I'm young, but I am able

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am

I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done my momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am
That's who I am

Yo
I can't sing it
I feel like singin
I wanna fucking sing
Cos i'm happy
Yeh, i'm happy
HaHa
I got my baby back
Yo, check it out

[Verse #1 Sung]
Some days i sit, staring out the window
Watchin' this world pass me by
Sometimes i think theres nothing to live for
I almost break down and cry

Somtimes i think i'm crazy
I'm crazy, oh so crazy
Why am i here, am i just wasting my time?

But then i see my baby
Suddenly i'm not crazy
It all makes sense when i look into her eyes

[Chorus]
Somtimes it feels like the world's on my shoulders
Everyone's leaning on me
Cos sometimes it feels like the world's almost over
But then she come back to me

[Verse #2 Sung]
My baby girl [hailey laughs] keeps gettin' older
I watch her grow up with pride
People make jokes, cos they don't understand me
They just dont see my real side

I act like shit, dont phase me,
Inside it drives me crazy
My insecurities could eat me alive

But then i see my baby
Suddenly i'm not crazy
It all makes sense when i look into her eyes

[Chorus]

[Verse #3 Rapped]
Yeh and if i could sing, i'd keep singing this song to my daughter
If i could hit the notes, i'd blow something as long as my father
To show her how i feel about her, how proud i am that i got 'er
God, im a daddy, im so glad that her mum didn't [censored] (abort her)

Now you prob'ly get this picture from my public persona
That i'm a pistol-packing drug-addict who bags on his momma,
But i wanna just take this time out to be perfectly honest
Cos there's a lot of shit i keep bottled that hurts deep inside o' ma soul,
And just know that i grow colder the older i grow
This boulder on my shoulder that gets heavy and harder to hold
And this load is like the weight of the world
And i think my neck is breaking should i just give up
Or try to live up to these expectations? now look,
I love my daughter more than life in itself,
But i got a wife who's determined to make my life living hell
But i handle it well, given the circumstances i'm dealt
So many chances, man, it's too bad, coulda had someone else
But the years that i've wasted are nothing to the tears that ive tasted
So here's what im facin: 3 felonies, 6 years of probation
I've went to jail for this woman, i've been to bat for this woman
I've taken bats to people' backs, bent over backwards for this woman
Man, i shoulda seen it comin, why'd i stick my penis uppin?
Woulda ripped the pre-nup if i'd seen what she was fuckin
But fuck it, it's over, there's no more reason to cry no more
I got my baby, maybe the only lady that i adore, haley
So sayonara, try tomorra, nice to know ya
My baby's travelled back to the arms of her rightful owner
And suddenly it seems that my shoulder blades have just shifted
Its like the greatest gift you can get
The weight has been lifted

[Chorus]

[Outro - Spoken]
Woow!
I told you, i can't sing.
Oh well, i tried
Haley, remember when i said
If you ever need anything, daddy will be right there?
Well guess what, daddy's here.
And i ain't goin nowhere baby
I love you (kiss)

11:41 pm - This song reminds me of Clay...
...but it's really about Elvis. :)

**

Black Velvet
Alannah Myles

Mississippi, in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama's dancin' with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky

The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more
He'd leave you longing for

CHORUS
Black velvet in that little-boy smile
Black velvet in that soft Southern style
A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet, if you please

Up in Memphis, the music's like a heatwave
White lightening, bound to drive you wild
Mama's baby's in the heart of every schoolgirl
"Love Me Tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle

The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more
He'd leave you longing for

CHORUS

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash, he was gone
It happened so soon
What could you do?

CHORUS x 2

If you please
If you please
If you please...

08:14 am - "Breakfast At Tiffany's"
by Deep Blue Something

You say that we've got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we're falling apart
You'll say the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
But I know you just don't care

CHORUS:
And I said what about "Breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said, "I think I remember the film...
And as I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it."
And I said, "Well, that's the one thing we've got."

I see you, the only one who knew me
And now your eyes see through me
I guess I was wrong
So what now? It's plain to see we're over
And I hate when things are over
When so much is left undone

CHORUS:
And I said what about "Breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said, "I think I remember the film...
And as I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it."
And I said, "Well, that's the one thing we've got."

You say that we've got nothing in common
No common ground to start from
And we're falling apart
You'll say the world has come between us
Our lives have come between us
But I know you just don't care

CHORUS:
And I said what about "Breakfast at Tiffany's?"
She said, "I think I remember the film...
And as I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it."
And I said, "Well, that's the one thing we've got."

James Otto, Days of Our Lives


Well, I left for work in a hurry.
I rushed out the door without sayin' goodbye.
I didn't tell her I loved her this mornin',
But I'll tell her tonight, I thought to myself.

An' as I hurried off t'wards the highway,
This truck, outta nowhere, caught me by surprise.
He missed me by inches, an' my life passed in front of my eyes.
I guess that's the reason that they say:

Dance every dance an' live each day,
As though it's your last,
An' tell those that you love how you feel,
Before it's too late.
Life is right here and now,
We only go around just one time.
So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.

Well as soon as my legs stopped a-shakin',
Took a deep breathe an' turned my car around.
Oh, I'm gonna take that vacation,
That we talked about, startin' right now.

Although I know tomorrow will be here,
Tomorrow may not always be here for me.
'Cause nothin' in life is for certain but death's guaranteed.
And that's the reason that I say:

Dance every dance an' live each day,
As though it's your last,
An' tell those that you love how you feel,
Before it's too late.
Life is right here and now,
We only go around just one time.
So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.

Instrumental break.

Yeah, life is right here and now,
We only go around just one time.
So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.
Oh, embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.
Yeah

06:30 pm - gravedigger- dave matthews.
This isnt a really jolly song thats appropriate for the holiday season, but it has GRRREATTT lyrics!!! and its a amazing song.

Cyrus Jones, 1810 to 1913.
He made his great grandchildren believe he could live to 103.
103 is forever when you`re just a little kid, so...
...Cyrus Jones lived forever.
Gravedigger, when you dig my grave, could you make it shallow so that I can
feel the rain. Gravedigger.
Muriel Stonewall 1903 to 1954.
She lost both of her babies in the second Great War.
I mean, you should never have to watch your only children lowered in the ground.
I mean, you should never have to bury your own babies.
Gravedigger, when you dig my grave, could you make it shallow so that I can
feel the rain. Gravedigger.

Ring around the rosy...
Pockets full of poesy`s...
Ashes to ashes...
We all fall down...

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave, could you make it shallow so that I can
feel the rain. Oh! Gravedigger.
Little Miki Carson `67 to `75
He rode his bike like the devil until the day he died.
When he grows up he wants to be
Mr. Vertical on the flying trapeze
Ooh.. 1940 to 199..2
Gravedigger, when you dig my grave, could you make it shallow so that I can
feel the rain... Oh! Gravedigger, when you dig my grave, could you make it
shallow so that I can feel the rain, I can feel the rain, I can feel the
rain...Gravedigger, when you dig my grave, could you make it shallow so that I
can feel the rain. Gravedigger. Gravedigger.

Ice Ice Baby</i>
Vanilla Ice

Yo, VIP, Let's kick it!

Ice Ice Baby
Ice Ice Baby
All right stop
Collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a hawk daily and nightly
Will it ever stop?
Yo I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle.

Dance
Bum rush the speaker that booms
I'm killin your brain like a poisonous mushroom
Deadly, when I play a dope melody
Anything less that the best is a felony
Love it or leave it
You better gain way
You better hit bull's eye
The kid dont play
If there was a problem
Yo, I'll solve it
Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it

Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla

Now that the party is jumping
With the bass kicked in, the Vegas are pumpin'
Quick to the point, to the point no faking
I'm cooking MC's like a pound of bacon
Burning them if they're not quick and nimble
I go crazy when I hear a cymbal
And a hi hat with a souped up tempo
I'm on a roll and it's time to go solo
Rollin in my 5.0
With my ragtop down so my hair can blow
The girlies all standby
Waving just to say HI
Did you stop?
No I just drove by
Kept on pursuing to the next stop
I busted a left and I'm heading to the next block
That block was dead

Y so I continued to A1A Beachfront Avenue
Girls were hot wearing less than bikinis
Rockman lovers driving Lamborghinis
Jealous 'cause I'm out getting mine
Shay with a guage and Vanilla with a nine
Reading for the chumps on the wall
The Chumps are acting ill because they're so full of eight balls
Gunshots ranged out like a bell
I grabbed my nine
All I heard were shells
Fallin on the concrete real fast
Jumped in my car, slammed on the gas
Bumper to bumper the avenue's packed
I'm tryin to get away before the jackers jack
Police on the scene
You know what I mean
They passed me up, confronted all the dope fiends
If there was a problem
Yo, I'll solve it
Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it

Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla

Take heed, cause I'm a lyrical poet
Miami's on the scene just in case you didn't know it
My town, that created all the bass sound
Enough to shake and kick holes in the ground
'Cause my style's like a chemical spill
Feasible rhymes that you can vision and feel
Conducted and formed
This is a hell of a concept
We make it hype and you want to step with this
Shay plays on the fade, slice it like a ninja
Cut like a razor blade so fast
Other DJ's say, "Damn"
If my rhyme was a drug
I'd sell it by the gram
Keep my composure when it's time to get loose
Magnetized by the mic while I kick my juice
If there was a problem
Yo I'll solve it!
Check out the hook while Deshay revolves it.

Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla
Ice Ice Baby Vanilla

Yo let's get out of here!
Word to your mother!

Ice Ice baby Too Cold
Ice Ice baby Too Cold Too cold

A New York Christmas
by Rob Thomas

Call on your angels
Come down to the city
Crowd around the big tree
All you strangers who know me
Bring your compassion
Your understanding
Lord, how we need it
On this New York City Christmas

Yeah, I'm sending you a Merry New York Christmas
And a prayer for peace on Earth
Within our time
Yeah, the sidewalk angels echo hallelujah
And we understand them
Now more than ever

So call on your angels
Your beaten and broken
It's time that we mend them
So they don't fade with the season
Let our mercy be the gifts we lay
From Brooklyn to Broadway
And celebrate each and every day
Of this New York City Christmas

Yeah, I'm sending you a Merry New York Christmas
And a prayer for peace on Earth
Within our time
Yeah, the sidewalk angels echo hallelujah
And we understand them
Now more than ever
Merry New York Christmas

Call on your angels
Come down to the city
Let's crowd around the big tree
All you strangers, you know me
Bring your compassion
Bring your forgiveness
Lord, how we need it
On this New York City Christmas

Yeah, I'm sending you a Merry New York Christmas
And a prayer for peace on Earth
It's not too late
Yeah the sidewalk angels echo hallelujah
We understand them
We understand them
Merry Christmas
Yes, a New York City Christmas
(Oh Christmas)
Merry New York Christmas

GAVIN DEGRAW LYRICS

"Follow Through"

Oh, this is the start of something good
Don't you agree?
I haven't felt like this in so many moons
You know what I mena?
And we can build through this destruction
As we are standing on our feet
So, since you want to be with me
You'll have to follow through
With every word you say
And I, all I really want is you
You to stick around
I'll see you everyday
But you have to follow through
You have to follow through
These reeling emotions they just keep me alive
They keep me in tune
Oh, look what I'm holding here in my fire
This is for you
Am I too obvious to preach it?
You're so hypnotic on my heart
So, since you want to be with me
You'll have to follow through
With every word you say
And I, all I really want is you
You to stick around
I'll see you everyday
But you have to follow through
You have to follow through
The words you say to me are unlike anything
That's ever been said
And what you do to me is unlike anything
That's ever been
Am I too obvious to preach it?
You're so hypnotic on my heart
So, since you want to be with me
You'll have to follow through
With every word you say
And I, all I really want is you
(For) you to stick around
I'll see you everyday
But you'll have to follow through
With every word you say
An I, all I really want is you (For) you to stick around
I'll see everyday
But you have to follow through
You have to follow through
You're gonna have to follow
Oh, this is the start of something good
Don't you agree?

09:47 pm - One of my current favorite songs ^^
Happy - Sita

There's a man sitting down by the 405
Hitting some kind of tune on his raving guitar
He seems stranded in a desert of a million dreams
Just like life hasn't been exactly as nice as it seems

Hello! How are you?
Why are you looking so sad on a day like this?
Do you feel like talking?
Now you got me started

I wanna see a smile on your clueless face - Yeah Yeah
You could be so happy on this brand new beautiful day
You could be so happy like kids getting ready to play
Come on and bring it on, on and on
Nothing that you do is wrong
Come along and don't drag it on
You can be so happy

You say your girlfriend is pretty - Yeah
She's waiting at home
Got a safe job
And you can call a little house and a chevy your own
It all seems perfect but ain't perfect just as boring as hell
You've been craving for this
And now you're stuck just like a snail in it's shell All that matters is that you can
be free to live your life the way you sincerely feel it
Cause life's too short
You don't wanna be a prisoner
of your own illusions
And I shout it out

You could be so happy - yeah you got somebody to love
You could be so happy - Ain't that good enough
Ain't no use to sit and drag it on, thinking 'bout the mess
you've done - Nothing's wrong, just bring it on
You could be so happy

There's a man sitting down by the 405
Got a smile on his face - Thinking: 'What a wonderful life'
Current Mood: coldcold

01:42 am - Ironic by Alanis Morissette
This has been one of my favorite songs ever since I was 8.

An old man turned ninety -eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic ... don't you think
It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought ... it figures
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good -bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
Well , isn't this nice
And Isn't this ironic ... don't you think ?
It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought ... it figures
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's oka and everythings going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think evertyhing's gone wrong and everthing blows up
In your face
A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic ... don't you think
A little too ironic .. and yeah I really do think ...
It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought ... it figures
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
And life has a funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

Santa Esmeralda - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Baby, do you understand me now?
Sometimes I feel a little mad
But, don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem edgy
I want you to know
That I never meant to take it out on you
Life has its problems
And I got my share
And that's one thing I never meant to do
'Cause I love you

Baby, don't you know I'm just human
And I've got thoughts like any other one
And sometimes I find myself, oh Lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done

But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Oh Lord, don't let me be misunderstood
Please don't let me be misunderstood

Baby, do you understand me now?
Sometimes I feel a little mad
But, don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad

'Cause I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree
With a joy that's hard to hide
And sometimes it seems that, all I have to do is worry
And then you're bound to see my other side

'Cause I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem edgy
I want you to know
That I never meant to take it out on you
Life has its problems
And I got my share
And that's one thing I never meant to do
'Cause I love you

Oh, baby, don't you know I'm human
I have thoughts like any other one
And sometimes I find myself, oh Lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done

'Cause I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

02:53 pm - dashboard confessional : "hands down"
Breathe in for luck,
breathe in so deep,
this air is blessed,
you share with me.
This night is wild,
so calm and dull,
these hearts they race,
from self control.
Your legs are smooth,
as they graze mine,
we're doing fine,
we're doing nothing at all.

My hopes are so high,
that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me,
so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury,
or wear as jewelery,
which ever you prefer.

The words are hushed lets not get busted;
just lay entwined here, undiscovered.
Safe in here, from all the stupid questions.
"hey did you get some?"
Man, that is so dumb.
Stay quiet, stay near, stay close they can't hear...
so we can get some.

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me, so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury, or wear as jewelery,
which ever you prefer.

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember,
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo,
the dim of the soft lights,
the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers
and the time on the clock when we realized it's so late
and this walk that we shared together.
The streets were wet
and the gate was locked so I jumped it,
and let you in.
And you stood at the door with your hands on my waist
and you kissed me like you meant it.
And I knew that you meant it,
that you meant it,
that you meant it,
and I knew,
that you meant it,
that you meant it.

06:25 pm - Jason Mraz "Common Pleasure"
I remember when we used to walk together
Used to talk together, go to the park together
In all kinds of weather we would share
This common pleasure with most of human kinds
It was a kind of treasure One that I was surely glad to find
But I got one right here and I'm okay
I'm okay, and you're okay, and we're okay
I'm alright. Everything else is alright sometimes.

Just remember those bones they get broken
And love is not a token of affection
It's not even a real thing, it's a word
So don't you try to but it out with a ring
Cause it's a verb, to love someone
Open up and let them in
just don't be afraid to set them free again

This ain't no heaven, ain't no hell , ain't no in between
Cause there's just too many faces and places in this world
That I ain't ever seen
I'm gonna keep on keeping on
I'm gonna reap on being strong
I got my head on, though misconnected
It's alright cause I do it protected
I got a day job. I drive a cheap ride
Sounds like I'm gonna fine
You only get one life to learn
There's only so many brain cells that you can burn
And life can take a turn and take away that you've earned
And leave you yearning for more, so much more
Life is gonna leave you yearning for more, more, more
Your stomach's gonna be churning
Wanting more, you're wanting, wanting some more.
You're wanting some more, more, more
Do you want some?

Well I got some right here and I'm okay
I'm okay and you're okay
Ha ha, we're okay
Everything else will be fine sometimes.
Guess what I'm doing okay
Do you want some?

Well I got some right here and I'm okay
I'm okay and you're okay
Ha ha, we're okay
Everything else will be fine sometimes.
Guess what I'm doing okay.

06:44 pm - Makes me want to move to NYC more!
New York City
They Might Be Giants

You called me last night on the telephone
and I was glad to hear from you cause I was all alone
you said "its snowing, its snowing. God I hate this weather
now Id walk through blizzards just to get us back together"

We met in the springtime at a rock n roll show
it was on the bowery when it was time to go
we kissed on the subway in the middle of the night
I held your hand, you held mine it was the best night of my life

*chorus*
Cause everyones your friend in New York City
and everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty
the streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see
but the best thing about New York City is...You and me

Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Co-Op City, Katzs and Tiffanys, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, the empire state where Dylan lived, Coney Island and Times Square, Rockefeller Center
Wish I was there

You wrote me a letter just the other day
you said springtime is coming soon so why dont you come to stay
pack my stuff, its on the bus, I cant believe its true
Im three days from New York City and Im three days from you

*chorus*
Cause everyones my friend in New York City
and everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty
the streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see
but the best thing about New York City is...You and me

Cause everyones my friend in New York City
and everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty
the streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see
but the best thing about New York City is...You and me

12:02 am - Five Iron Frenzy time!
Five Iron Frenzy - Ugly Day

I can't believe this ever happened,
I didn't think it ever could,
I'm the author of sappy love songs,
Trading in my bachelorhood.
Something snapped deep inside me,
Something that somebody said,
I felt the brush of angels wings then,
Your voice echoed in my head.

[Chorus:]
Ugly Day the sun is shining,
Every cloud's got a silver lining.
Ugly day the skies are blue,
Now every day is ugly without you.

Are the one pure thing,
That I've always prayed for.
Scales are falling from my eyes,
I must have been so blind before.
I would lie down on the street,
To keep the dust off of your feet,
I would kneel each time I kissed you,
Anything Christie I miss you.

[Chorus:]
Ugly Day the sun is shining,
Every cloud's got a silver lining.
Ugly day the skies are blue,
Now every day is ugly without you.

Today was an ugly one,
Just like all the others.
All the flowers and the birds,
Making me feel smothered.
I would lie down on the street,
To keep the dust off your feet,
I would kneel each time I kissed you,
Anything Christie I miss you.

[Chorus:]
Ugly Day the sun is shining,
Every cloud's got a silver lining.
Ugly day the skies are blue,
Now every day is ugly without you.

lonesomelullaby
08:16 am - "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered" by Rod Stewart & Cher
After one whole quatre brandy
Like a daisy I'll awake
With no promseltzer handy
I don't even shake
When I'm not a new sensation
I've done pretty well I think
But this half a pint imitation
Put me on the blink

I'm wild again
Beguiled again
A simpering, whimpering child again
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered
Am I
Couldn't sleep, and wouldn't sleep
When love came and told me
I shouldn't sleep
Bewiched bothered and bewildered
Am I

Lost my heart, but what of it?
He is cold, I agree
He can laugh, but I love it
Although the laugh's on me
I'll sing to him, each spring to him
And long for the day
When I'll cling to him
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered
Am I

He's a fool and don't I know it
But a fool can have his charms
I'm in love and only show it
Like a babe in arms
I've sinned a lot
I mean a lot
But I'm like sweet seventeen alive
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered
Am I
I'll sing to him
Each spring to him
And worship the trousers
That cling to him
Bewitched bothered and bewildered
Am I

When he talks
He is seeking
Words to get
On his chest
Harsh until he's speaking
He's at his very best
Jest again
Oh, yes, perplexed again
Then cry, I can't be oversexed again
Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered
Am I

Greatest lyric ever:
I'll sing to him
Each spring to him
And worship the trousers
That cling to him

Bewitched bothered and bewildered
Am I


LOL...

Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day
Another turning point , a fork stuck in the road .
Time grabs you by the wrist , directs you where to go.
So make the best of this test , and don't ask why.
It's not a question , but a lesson learned in time .
It's something unpredictable , but in the end is right .
I hope you had the time of your life .
So take the photographs , and still frames in your mind .
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time .
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial .
For what it's worth , it was worth all the while .
It's something unpredictable , but in the end is right .
I hope you had the time of your life .
It's something unpredictable , but in the end is right .
I hope you had the time of your life .
It's something unpredictable , but in the end is right .
I hope you had the time of your life .

08:47 pm - I FORGOT ABOUT MY OWN COMMUNITY! *slaps self*
Nothing Fails - Madonna

I'm in love with you
You silly thing
Anyone can see
What is it with you?
You silly thing
Just take it from me

It was not a chance meeting
Feel my heart beating
You're the one

You could take all this
Take it away
I'd still have it all
Cause I've climbed the tree of life
And that is why
I'm not longer scared if I fall

When I get lost in space
I can return to this place cause
You're the one

Nothing fails
No more fears
Nothing fails
You washed away my tears

Nothing fails
No more fears
Nothing fails
Nothing fails

I'm not religious
But I feel so moved
It makes me wanna pray
Pray you'll always be here

I'm not religious
But I feel such love
It makes me wanna pray

When I get lost in space
I can return to this place cause
You're the one

I'm not religious
But I feel so moved

I'm not religious
It makes me wanna pray

I'm not religious
But I feel so moved
It makes me wanna pray
Pray you'll always be here

I'm not religious
But I feel such love
It makes me wanna pray

(w/ choir)
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel so moved (but it makes me wanna pray)

I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But it makes me wanna pray (but it makes me wanna pray)

I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel so moved (but it makes me wanna pray)

I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But it makes me wanna pray (but it makes me wanna pray)

Nothing fails
No more fears

You washed away my tears

No more fears

lonesomelullaby
09:46 pm - "Not Supposed To Love You Anymore" by Bryan White or Clay Aiken
We agreed that it was over
Now the lines have all been drawn
The vows we made began to fade
And now they're gone
Put your pictures in a shoebox
And my gold ring in a drawer
I'm not supposed to love you anymore

Now Sherri says she's jealous
Of this freedom that I've found
If she were me she would be
Out on the town
And she says she can't imagine
What on earth I'm waiting for
I'm not supposed to love you anymore

Oh, I shouldn't care or wonder where
and how you are
But I can't hide this hurt inside my broken heart
I'm fighting back emotions that I've never fought before
'Cause I'm not supposed to love you anymore

Now I'm writing you this letter
And it's killing me tonight
That I agreed when you believed
It wasn't right
And I couldn't sleep up on the bed
So I'm down here on the floor
Where I'm not supposed to love you anymore

Oh, I shouldn't care or wonder where
and how you are
And I can't hide this hurt inside be broken heart
I'm fighting back emotions that I've
never fought before
'Cause I'm not supposed to love you anymore

I'm fighting back emotions that I've
Never fought before
'Cause I'm not supposed to love you...
Anymore
