like a cancer grows
like a cancer grows
In case you’re wondering
I’ll be over here
This is what I need, Right Now!! Take me away…
It sounds good to me.
I can’t believe I ever hurt you
I will never to you lie again, please
just give me one more chance
I will never lie to you again
that I will never tell a lie
I will never tell a lie
ha ha ha ha ha hah haa haa haa haaa
Because it’s Wednesday and the week has been too long already,
Because the drive to work was impossible,
Because my last nerve has been worn too thin,
Because my workday doesn’t start until 9, but my boss started texting me at 8,
Because I thought I thought of everything,
Because there is no turning back,
Because I’m just…
Just because my brain has taken an unannounced vacation and I cannot form an even remotely intelligent thought, please let me share the gift of dance, song, and giggle 🙂
I don’t drink and I don’t smoke, but sometimes I could use a smoke break…
I have no time for words today. Please accept my gift of this generic playlist.
In return I will gladly accept gifts of coffee and sushi 🙂
Love Me Like You Mean It
And for all of us living in those Half Worlds….
Half Broke Heart
In my dress
I wait for you
dinner is done
I’ve removed my shoes
I wait for you
to spin me ’round
unzip my dress
let it fall to the ground
Glide with me across the floor
spin me ’round
Kiss me gentle
kiss me soft
kiss me now
the feeling is lost
Glide with me
to the edge of the bed
the same song
in both our heads
Love me now
make love with me
I’m in love with you
“It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the organizer, Who gave us the freedom to demonstrate
It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag.
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protester to burn the flag.”
~ Father Dennis Edward O’Brien, USMC
The freedom that we enjoy today comes with a price which has been paid dearly by our men and women in uniform. Always content to be on the sidelines, they seek no fame and recognition except the honor to protect the country we so dearly loved.
It’s in their sacrifices we see the enduring spirit of our nation. When our country has come under attack, they have courageously come to her defense. When our freedoms are threatened, they respond with firm resolve. Whether at home or abroad, our soldiers have sacrificed their lives to protect what we hold dear – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
As we express gratitude to the brave men and women in uniform, we remind ourselves that there is no parade, ceremony or gift that will equal what they’ve sacrificed for us. But with these songs (5 songs to be exact) that I have compiled, I am hoping that they will feel honored and not forgotten.
Now, here they are:
This song recounts the story of a son who fought in a war faraway. To keep himself from being lonely on the field, he wrote letters to his mom back home and she in turn, wrote back to him. One day the son was captured and the mother didn’t hear anything from him since then. But 2 years later, the son went home and embraced his surprised yet overjoyed mother.
Mark Schultz said he wrote this song after reading the diary of his great-grandmother containing her great-grandma’s correspondence with her 3 sons who fought in World War II.
We Will Not Forget is a song that paints an analogy of the sacrifice of our veterans to that of the sacrifice of God sending His only begotten Son to die for us. Indeed, we are truly thankful for the price they’ve paid and the sacrifice they’ve given so that we can have freedom!
This song sounds like a warrior who’s got tired of fighting. The war he’s involved is more of like a spiritual rather than a conventional one as the lyrics goes “My flesh and bones are caught in the war zone”. This could be equated to soldiers who experience combat fatigue. All the more that we should uphold them in our prayers as they battle not only the physical enemies but also loneliness and homesickness as well.
When Love Comes Home by Matthew West
Matthew West wrote this song after reading a touching story of Scott and Jennifer Horne of Cedar Park, Texas. Nearing the end his second deployment, Scott wrote to his wife saying, “My heart aches for you every second of every day, and I don’t know how to fill the emptiness I feel when I’m without you”. This song, by far, is one of the best compositions of West. It’s very heart-warming to listen to.
Warrior is A Child by Twila Paris
This song from the 80’s has long been forgotten but it’s one of the finest songs I usually hear in funerals for reasons I don’t know why. I think the song is more appropriate for soldiers, that’s why I included it here. This song is about a warrior who’s been successful in his battles but little do people know that he also has his own demons in his life to conquer.
So, with these songs whether for Memorial Day or Veterans Day, I hope we could bring a smile to the face of our valiant soldiers.
Do you have other songs to suggest? Please tell me by commenting below.
Thank you and God Bless!
I currently have a crush on both of these songs right now. I want to slow dance with both of them, maybe buy them a drink or two, see what happens. Songs kind of do that to me.
I just love it, that’s all!!
I’m still in a really piss poor mood (that might be giving myself too much credit).
I think I need to have a night out, a few drinks (I’m accepting designated drivers please), some serious dancing (and anyone will to hold me up), and just plain old-fashioned cutting loose.
Please join in… after all, it’s a party!
Today I can’t seem to walk a straight line without slipping, tripping or falling. Maybe it’s because it’s Friday the 13th, maybe it’s because I’m clumsy, or maybe I’m falling in love again 😉
He tells me to dance and spin
I’d rather fall into him
Thinking and talking and talking and thinking….
Thinking some more.
It all comes down to feeling.
And the truth is –
I’ve never felt, quite this way before.
"And the poets are just kids who didn't make it." -Fall Out Boy
A fluid state of being with a memorable trail, through a river full of thoughts I sail. Leaving the labyrinths of a chaotic world behind, it’s a journey through the jungles of my subconscious mind.
