    Sorry one more...

    Everything by Lifehouse
    Find me here
    And speak to me
    I want to feel you
    I need to hear you
    You are the light
    That's leading me
    To the place
    Where I find peace again

    You are the strength
    That keeps me walking
    You are the hope
    That keeps me trusting
    You are the life
    To my soul
    You are my purpose
    You're everything

    And how can I stand here with you
    And not be moved by you
    Would you tell me how could it be
    Any better than this
    (Ahh Yeahhh)

    You calm the storms
    And you give me rest
    You hold me in your hands
    You won't let me fall
    You still my heart
    And you take my breath away
    Would you take me in
    Would you take me deeper, now

    And how can I stand here with you
    And not be moved by you
    Would you tell me how could it be
    Any better than this

    And how can I stand here with you
    And not be moved by you
    Would you tell me how could it be
    Any better than this

    Cause you're all I want
    You're all I need
    You're everything, everything
    You're all I want
    You're all I need
    You're everything, everything
    You're all I want
    You're all I need
    You're everything, everything
    You're all I want
    You're all I need
    Everything, everything...

    When how can I stand here with you
    And not be moved by you
    Would you tell me how could it be
    Any better than this

    Oh And how can I stand here with you
    And not be moved by you
    Would you tell me how could it be
    Any better any better than this

    And how can I stand here with you
    And not be moved by you
    Would you tell me how could it be
    Any better than this

    Would you tell me how could it be
    Any better than this...

    This is one that I love by a new artist named Rachel Proctor:
    "Me and Emily"
    Floorboard is filled with baby toys and empty coke bottles and coffee cups.
    Drivin' through the rain with no radio, tryin' not to wake her up.
    Cell phone says "low battery", God what if I break down. I'm just lookin' for an exit with a lotta lights, a safe little interstate town.
    Just a cheap hotel with a single bed and cable TV is good enough for me and Emily.
    Some day when she's old enough she's gonna start askin' questions about him. Some kid at school brings his dad for show and tell and he gets her little mind a-wonderin'. "Where's my daddy? Do I have one? Does he not love me like you do?"
    Oh, maybe I'll find someone to love the both of us an' I'll tellher when she's old enough to know the truth.
    Will it break her heart? Will she understand that I had to leave? That's what was best for me and Emily.
    The house was never clean enough; his dinner never warm enough. Nothing I did was ever good enough to make him happy.
    So I guess he gave me what he thought I deserved. But it would kill me if he ever raised his hand to her.
    Big rigs are throwin' rain on my windshield, an' I feel like they're laughin' at me.
    Fin'lly the storm is lettin' up, an' the mornin' is breakin' free.
    It's a brand new day.
    It's a second chance. Yesterday is just a memory, for me and Emily.
    Floorboard is filled with baby toys and empty coke bottles and coffee cups.
    Least there's one good thing that he gave me and she's starting to wake up.

    "Graduation (Friends Forever)" VITAMIN C

    And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
    Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
    I keep thinking times will never change
    Keep on thinking things will always be the same
    But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
    No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
    And if you got something that you need to say
    You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
    Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
    These memories are playing like a film without sound
    And I keep thinking of that night in June
    I didn't know much of love
    But it came too soon
    And there was me and you
    And then we got real blue
    Stay at home talking on the telephone
    We'd get so excited, we'd get so scared
    Laughing at ourselves thinking life's not fair
    And this is how it feels

    As we go on
    We remember
    All the times we
    Had together
    And as our lives change
    Come Whatever
    We will still be
    Friends Forever

    So if we get the big jobs
    And we make the big money
    When we look back now
    Will our jokes still be funny?
    Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
    Still be trying to break every single rule
    Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
    Will Heather find a job that won't interfere with her tan?
    I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
    And this is how it feels

    La, la, la, la:
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    La, la, la, la:
    We will still be friends forever

    Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
    Can we survive it out there?
    Can we make it somehow?
    I guess I thought that this would never end
    And suddenly it's like we're women and men
    Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round?
    Will these memories fade when I leave this town
    I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
    Keep on thinking it's a time to fly
    Each time I hear this now, I feel like .

    It's a simple song, but lyrics strong, and symbolic.

    This song came out right after the Attacks on the World Trade Center.. One of my favorites by Alan Jackson
    Where Were You
    (Alan Jackson)

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
    Out in the yard with your wife and children
    Working on some stage in LA
    Did you stand there in shock at the site of
    That black smoke rising against that blue sky
    Did you shout out in anger
    In fear for your neighbor
    Or did you just sit down and cry

    Did you weep for the children
    Who lost their dear loved ones
    And pray for the ones who don't know
    Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
    And sob for the ones left below

    Did you burst out in pride
    For the red white and blue
    The heroes who died just doing what they do
    Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
    And look at yourself to what really matters

    I'm just a singer of simple songs
    I'm not a real political man
    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
    The difference in Iraq and Iran
    But I know Jesus and I talk to God
    And I remember this from when I was young
    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
    And the greatest is love

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
    Teaching a class full of innocent children
    Driving down some cold interstate
    Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor
    In a crowded room did you feel alone
    Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
    Did you dust off that bible at home
    Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
    Close your eyes and not go to sleep
    Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
    Speak with some stranger on the street
    Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
    Go out and buy you a gun
    Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watching
    And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns
    Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger
    Stand in line and give your own blood
    Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
    Thank God you had somebody to love

    I'm just a singer of simple songs
    I'm not a real political man
    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
    The difference in Iraq and Iran
    But I know Jesus and I talk to God
    And I remember this from when I was young
    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
    And the greatest is love

    I'm just a singer of simple songs
    I'm not a real political man
    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
    The difference in Iraq and Iran
    But I know Jesus and I talk to God
    And I remember this from when I was young
    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
    And the greatest is love

    The greatest is love
    The greatest is love

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

    This one is one of my favorites that has came out just recently...

    Die Of A Broken Heart
    (Carolyn Dawn Johnson/Shaye Smith)


    I keep having these disturbing dreams:
    My final days, the end of me.
    For some odd reason, I get one last wish,
    And every time, I wish for this:

    Take me fast or take me slow.
    I don't really care how I go.
    In the daylight or in the dark,
    Just don't let me die of a broken heart.

    The kind of pain that you just can't take,
    Will send a strong man to his grave.
    There's not a pill that can give you a rest,
    Or fill that hole deep in your chest.

    So, take me fast or take me slow.
    I don't really care how I go.
    In the daylight or in the dark,
    Just don't let me die of a broken heart.
    No.

    (Yeah, yeah.
    (Yeah, Yeah.)

    I've been crushed by that hurt before.
    There's no way I could take any more.
    If I fell in love, and I found out it would happen again,
    I'd say take me now.

    And take me fast or take me slow.
    I don't really care how I go.
    In the daylight or in the dark,
    Just don't let me die of a broken heart.

    Take me fast or take me slow.
    I don't really care how I go.
    In the daylight or in the dark,
    Just don't let me die of a broken heart.

    No, don't let me die of a broken heart.

    No.

    The daughter of this Country Music Singer.. helped inspired this song.. Really touching...
    Help Pour Out The Rain (Lacey's Song)
    (Buddy Jewell)


    The moment was custom-made to order:
    I was ridin' with my daughter on our way back from Monroe.
    An' like children do, she started playin' twenty questions,
    But I never could've guessed one would touch me to my soul.

    She said: "Daddy, when we get to Heaven, can I taste the Milky Way?
    "Are we goin' there to visit, or are we goin' there to stay?
    "Am I gonna see my Grandpa? Can I have a pair of wings?
    "An' do you think that God could use another Angel,
    "To help pour out the rain?"

    Well, I won't lie: I pulled that car right over,
    An' I sat there on the shoulder tryin' to dry my misty eyes.
    An' I whispered: "Lord, I wanna thank you for my children.
    "'Cause your innocence that fills them often takes me by surprise."

    Like: "Daddy, when we get to Heaven, can I taste the Milky Way?
    "Are we goin' there to visit, or are we goin' there to stay?
    "Am I gonna see my Grandpa? Can I have a pair of wings?
    "An' do you think that God could use another Angel,
    "To help pour out the rain?"

    Well, I thought about it later on,
    An' a smile came to my face.
    An' when I tucked her in to bed,
    I got down on my knees an' prayed.

    Lord, when I get to Heaven, can I taste the Milky Way?
    "I don't wanna come to visit 'cause I'm comin' home to stay?
    "An' I can't wait to see my family and meet Jesus face to face.
    "An' do you think, Lord, you could use just one more Angel,
    "To help pour out the rain?"

    Mmmm, can I help pour out the rain?

    This song.. makes you really think.. and makes us wonder why we judge and never really try to get to know people.

    Three Wooden Crosses

    A farmer and a teacher, a hooker and a preacher,
    Ridin' on a midnight bus bound for Mexico.
    One's headed for vacation, one for higher education,
    An' two of them were searchin' for lost souls.
    That driver never ever saw the stop sign.
    An' eighteen wheelers can't stop on a dime.

    There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway,
    Why there's not four of them, Heaven only knows.
    I guess it's not what you take when you leave this world behind you,
    It's what you leave behind you when you go.

    That farmer left a harvest, a home and eighty acres,
    The faith an' love for growin' things in his young son's heart.
    An' that teacher left her wisdom in the minds of lots of children:
    Did her best to give 'em all a better start.
    An' that preacher whispered: "Can't you see the Promised Land?"
    As he laid his blood-stained bible in that hooker's hand.

    There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway,
    Why there's not four of them, Heaven only knows.
    I guess it's not what you take when you leave this world behind you,
    It's what you leave behind you when you go.

    That's the story that our preacher told last Sunday.
    As he held that blood-stained bible up,
    For all of us to see.
    He said: "Bless the farmer, and the teacher, an' the preacher;
    "Who gave this Bible to my mamma,
    "Who read it to me."

    There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway,
    Why there's not four of them, now I guess we know.
    It's not what you take when you leave this world behind you,
    It's what you leave behind you when you go.

    There are three wooden crosses on the right side of the highway.

    This is another Brand New song. It's called "Guernica" It's about somebody related to you gets cancer and you can't be there for them.

    Ever since I was young
    your word is the word that always won.
    Worry and wake the ones you love.
    A phone call I壇 rather not receive.
    Please use my body while I sleep.
    My lungs are fresh and yours to keep,
    Kept clean and they will let you breathe.

    Is this the way a toy feels when its batteries run dry?
    I am the watch you always wear but you forget to wind.

    Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these,
    So I sat alone and waited out the night.
    The best part of what has happened was
    the part I must have missed.
    So I知 asking you to shine it on and stick around.
    I知 not writing my goodbyes.

    I submit no excuse.
    If this is what I have to do
    I owe you every day I wake.
    If I could I would shrink myself
    Sink through your skin to your blood cells
    remove whatever makes you hurt
    but I am too weak to be your cure.

    Is this the way a toy feels when its batteries run dry?
    I am the watch you always wear but you forget to wind.

    Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these,
    so I sat alone and waited out the night.
    The best part of what has happened was
    the part I must have missed.
    So I知 asking you to shine it on and stick around.
    I知 not writing my goodbyes.

    I知 not letting you check out.
    You will beat this starting now
    And you will always be around.
    I知 there to monitor your breathing
    I will watch you while you池e sleeping.
    I will keep you safe and sound.

    Does anybody remember back when you were very young.
    Did you ever think that you would be this blessed?

    Nobody plans to be half a world away at times like these,
    so I sat alone and waited out the night.
    The best part of what has happened was
    the part I must have missed.
    So I知 asking you to shine it on and stick around.
    I知 not writing my goodbyes.
    You stole my smart quote!

    This is one of my favorite songs by The Flaming Lips. The lyrics are very simple, but combined with the music, it's incredibly powerful.

    Do You Realize

    Do you realize
    That you have the most beautiful face?
    Do you realize
    We're floating in space?
    Do you realize
    That happiness makes you cry?

    Do you realize
    That everyone you know someday will die?
    And instead of saying all of your good-byes
    Let them know you realize that life goes fast
    It's hard to make the good things last
    You realize the sun doesn't go down
    It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

    Do you realize?

    Do you realize
    That everyone you know someday will die?
    And instead of saying all of your good-byes
    Let them know you realize that life goes fast
    It's hard to make the good things last
    You realize the sun doesn't go down
    It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

    Do you realize
    That you have the most beautiful face?

    Do you realize?
