    I love this song:
    I'm so tired of being here
    supressed by all my childish fears.
    And if you have to leave, I wish that you would just leave.
    'Cause your presence still lingers here and it won't leave me alone.
    These wounds won't seem to heal. This pain is just too real.
    There's just too much that time cannot erase.
    When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears.
    When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears.
    I held your hand through all of these years. But you still have all of me.
    You used to captivate me by your resonating light.
    Now I'm bound by the life you left behind.
    Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams.
    Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me.
    These wounds won't seem to heal.
    This pain is just too real.
    There's just too much that time cannot erase.
    When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears.
    When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears.
    I held your hand through all of these years. But you still have all of me.
    I've tried so hard to tell myself that your gone.
    But though you're still with me, I've been alone all along.
    When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears.
    When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears.
    I held your hand through all of these years.
    But you still have all of me.

    I don't know if someone already did this but here it is.
    "Dance With My Father" Luther Vandross
    Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
    My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
    Spin me around 'till I fell asleep
    Then up the stairs he would carry me.
    And I knew for sure I was loved.
    If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him,
    I'd play a song that would never, ever end.
    How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again.
    When I and my mother would disagree,
    To get my way, I would run from her to him.
    He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
    Then finally make me do just what my mama said.
    Later that night when I was asleep,
    He left a dollar under my sheet.
    Never dreamed that he would be gone from me.
    If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him,
    I'd play a song that would never, ever end
    'Cause I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again.
    Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
    And I'd hear how my mother cried for him.
    I pray for her even more than me.
    I pray for her even more that me.
    I know I'm praying for much too much
    But could you send back the only man she loved?
    I know you don't do it usually
    But dear Lord she's dying
    to dance with my father again.
    Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream.

    The Police's Wrapped Around Your Finger


    You consider me the young apprentice
    Caught between the scylla and charibdes
    Hypnotized by you if I should linger
    Staring at the ring around your finger

    I have only come here seeking knowledge
    Things they wouldn't teach me of in college
    I can see the destiny you sold
    Turned into a shining band of gold

    I'll be wrapped around your finger
    I'll be wrapped around your finger

    Mephistopheles is not your name
    But I know what you're up to just the same
    I will listen hard to your tuition
    And you will see it come to its fruition

    I'll be wrapped around your finger
    I'll be wrapped around your finger

    Devil and the deep blue sea behind me
    Vanish in the air you'll never find me
    I will turn your face to alabaster
    Then you will find your servant is your master

    And you'll be wrapped around my finger
    You'll be wrapped around your finger
    You'll be wrapped around your finger
    " I look like Nigella Lawson with a $#*!ing hangover."

    Oooooh, good choice Texi! I remember when that song came out and I just loved it and had to read the lyrics to figure out what he was actually saying here: Caught between the scylla and charibdes
    Last week, Japanese scientists explaced... placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and its local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally. ~ Napoleon Dynamite

    I know this is a silly song, but I am still impressed that he put it together and it's kind of catchy to sing, also.


    Bob by Weird Al Yankovic

    I, man, am regal - a German am I
    Never odd or even
    If I had a hi-fi
    Madam, I'm Adam
    Too hot or to hoot
    No lemons, no melon
    Too bad I hid a boot
    Lisa Bonet ate no basil
    Warsaw was raw
    Was it a car or a cat I saw?

    Rise to vote, sir
    Do geese see god?
    "Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod
    Rats live on no evil star
    Won't lovers revolt now?
    Race fast, safe car
    Pa's a sap
    Ma is as selfish as I am
    May a moody baby doom a yam?

    Ah, Satan sees Natasha
    No evil lived on
    Lonely Tylenol
    Not a banana baton
    No "x" in "Nixon"
    O, stone, be not so
    O Geronimo, no minor ego
    "Naomi," I moan
    "A Toyota's a Toyota"
    A dog, a panic in a pagoda

    Oh no! Don Ho!
    Nurse, I spy gypsies - run!
    Senile felines
    Now I see bees I won
    UFO tofu
    We panic in a pew
    Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo
    God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog!
    Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog

    I first heard this song during the first episode of Alias. It's incredibly haunting and beautiful, and I just love the lyrics.

    When the night shows
    the signals grow on radios
    All the strange things
    they come and go, as early warnings
    Stranded starfish have no place to hide
    still waiting for the swollen Easter tide
    There's no point in direction we cannot
    even choose a side.

    I took the old track
    the hollow shoulder, across the waters
    On the tall cliffs
    they were getting older, sons and daughters
    The jaded underworld was riding high
    Waves of steel hurled metal at the sky
    and as the nail sunk in the cloud, the rain
    was warm and soaked the crowd.

    Lord, here comes the flood
    We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
    If again the seas are silent
    in any still alive
    It'll be those who gave their island to survive
    Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.

    When the flood calls
    You have no home, you have no walls
    In the thunder crash
    You're a thousand minds, within a flash
    Don't be afraid to cry at what you see
    The actors gone, there's only you and me
    And if we break before the dawn, they'll
    use up what we used to be.

    Lord, here comes the flood
    We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
    If again the seas are silent
    in any still alive
    It'll be those who gave their island to survive
    Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    I Learned That From You-Sara Evans


    I remember the windows rolled down and the wind in my hair
    Driving 'round in your Daddy's old Chevy
    Like we were going somewhere

    We thought that summer would last us forever
    Going steady was just something you do
    I didn't know much about love
    I learned that from you

    Now those were some good times
    Lately they don't seem to last
    I guess I'm not nearly as strong as a drink in your glass
    And the nights just get later
    I can stay up and wait or just go on to bed like I do
    I never knew nothing about lonely
    I learned from that you

    And I learned how to kiss on a ferris wheel
    And I made wishes at wishing wells
    And I fell into that fairytale too
    And I know that love ain't so easy
    But we tried, didn't we baby
    It's alright
    Some dreams weren't meant to come true
    I learned that from you

    One night while the whole world was turning
    I left you a note
    And I told you that I'd always miss you
    Then I let you go
    I'm living outside of some town I ain't heard of
    And I think about the boy I knew
    I didn' t know you could fall out of love
    I learned that from you

    And I learned how to kiss on a ferris wheel
    And I made wishes at wishing wells
    And I fell into that fairytale too
    And I know that love ain't so easy
    But we tried, didn't we baby
    It's alright
    Some dreams weren't meant to come true
    I learned that from you

    I remember the windows rolled down
    And the wind..

    Martina McBride:

    Concrete Angel

    She walks to school with the lunch she packed
    Nobody knows what she's holdin' back
    Wearin' the same dress she wore yesterday
    She hides the bruises with linen and lace

    The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask
    It's hard to see the pain behind the mask
    Bearing the burden of a secret storm
    Sometimes she wishes she was never born

    Through the wind and the rain
    She stands hard as a stone
    In a world that she can't rise above
    But her dreams give her wings
    And she flies to a place where she's loved
    Concrete angel

    Somebody cries in the middle of the night
    The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights
    A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
    When morning comes it'll be too late

    Repeat Chorus

    A statue stands in a shaded place
    An angel girl with an upturned face
    A name is written on a polished rock
    A broken heart that the world forgot

    This song and the video always make me really sad.
    A recent survey stated that the average person's greatest fear is having to give a speech in public. Somehow this ranked even higher than death which was third on the list. So, you're telling me that at a funeral, most people would rather be the guy in the coffin than have to stand up and give a eulogy.

    "The Perfect Ending" Straylight Run

    Taken in context
    it's not a bad thing
    but when you start to pick it apart
    it gets so depressing

    it's that sorta thing that makes you think too much
    it's that sorta thing that makes you lose your objectivity

    so if you made it
    just be glad that you did and stay there
    if you ever feel loved or needed
    remember that you're one of the lucky ones

    and if it's over
    just remember what i told ya
    it was bound to happen so just
    keep movin on
    there's no perfect endings

    you peel back the layers
    get down to the inside
    but some times you lose sight
    of what it was you were trying to find

    it's that sorta thing that makes you think too much
    it's that sorta thing that makes you lose your objectivity

    so if you made it
    just be glad that you did and stay there
    if you ever feel loved or needed
    remember that you're one of the lucky ones

    and if it's over
    just remember what i told ya
    it was bound to happen so just
    keep movin on
    there's no perfect endings
    no perfect endings
    You stole my smart quote!

    I calligraph-ied, matted and framed this in my bedroom:

    oh when we meet again
    it's like we never left
    time in between was just a dream
    did we leave this place?
    this crazy fog surrounds me
    you wrap your legs around me
    all I can do to try and breathe
    let me breathe so that I
    so we can go together

    love will lead us, all right
    love will lead us, she will lead us
    can you hear the dolphin's cry?
    see the road rise up to meet us
    it's in the air we breathe tonight
    love will lead us, she will lead us

    life is like a shooting star
    it don't matter who you are
    if you only run for cover, it's just a waste of time
    we are lost 'til we are found
    this phoenix rises up from the ground
    and all these wars are over


    The Dolphin's Cry -- Live
    Could does not mean should
