    "Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song)" by Incubus

    I'm home alone tonight.
    Full moon illuminates my room, and sends my mind aflight.
    I think I was dreaming up some thoughts that were seemingly
    possible...with you.
    So I call you on the tin can phone.
    We rendezvous at a quarter-two, and make sure we're alone.
    I may have found a way for you and I to finally fly free.
    When we get there, we're gonna go far away.
    Making sure to laugh; while we experience anti-gravity.
    For years, I kept to myself.
    Now potentialities are bound, and sleeping under my shelf.
    Simply choose your destination from the diamond canopy,
    and we'll be there.
    So I call you on the tin can phone.
    We rendezvous at a quarter-two, and make sure we're alone.
    I may have found the way for you and I to finally be free

    "11 A.M." by Incubus

    seven a.m.,
    the garbage truck beeps as it backs up
    and I start my day thinking about what I've thrown away.
    Could I push rewind?
    The credits traverse signifying the end but I missed the best part.
    Could we please go back to start?

    Forgive my indecision

    Then again, you're always first when no one's on your side.
    But then again, a day will come when I want off that ride.

    eleven a.m.,
    by now you would think that I would be up
    but my bedsheets shade the heat of choices I've made.
    And what did I find?
    I never thought I could want someone so much
    'cause now you're not here and I'm knee deep in
    that old fear.

    Forgive my indecision... I am only a man

    Then again, you're always first when no one's on your side.
    But then again, a day will come when I want off that ride.

    Twelve pm and my dusty telephone rings.
    Heavy head up from my pillow, who could it be?
    I hope it's you.

    On the Incubus theme, I'm partial to "Drive"



    Incubus
    Drive

    Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
    And I cant help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear take the wheel and steer
    It's driven me before, it seems to have a vague
    Haunting mass appeal
    Lately I'm beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
    With open arms and open eyes yeah
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there
    So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive
    Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive, oh oh
    It's driven me before, it seems to be the way
    That everyone else get around
    Lately, I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
    With open arms and open eyes yeah
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there
    Would you choose water over wine
    Hold the wheel and drive
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
    With open arms and open eyes yeah
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there, I'll be there

    I've always sung this one at the top of my lungs whenever I hear it.

    Summer, Highland Falls - Billy Joel

    They say that these are not the best of times,
    But they're the only times I've ever known,
    And I believe there is a time for meditation in cathedrals of our own.
    Now I have seen that sad surrender in my lover's eyes,
    And I can only stand apart and sympathize.

    For we are always what our situations hand us...
    It's either sadness or euphoria.
    And so we argue and we compromise,
    and realize that nothing's ever changed,
    For all our mutual experience, our seperate conclusions are the same.

    Now we are forced to recognize our inhumanity,
    Our reason co-exists with our insanity.
    And though we choose between reality and madness...
    It's either sadness or euphoria.

    How thoughtlessly we dissipate our energies
    Perhaps we don't fulfill each other's fantasies.
    And so we'll stand upon the ledges of our lives,
    With our respective similarities...
    It's either sadness or euphoria.
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.
    -Richard Brautigan

    I just love this. There's a lot of music I'd probably never hear because I don't care for the band's style of music. But anyone can appreciate the written word. There's some really great stuff here so far.

    Great thred, Jodaar.

    I am not a hige Dave Matthews band fan, but I love this song.

    Dave Matthews Band
    The Space Between

    You cannot quit me so quickly
    Is no hope in you for me
    No corner you could squeeze me
    But I got all the time for you, love
    The Space Between
    The tears we cry
    Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
    The Space Between
    The wicked lies we tell
    And hope to keep us safe from the pain

    But will I hold you again?
    These fickle, fuddled words confuse me
    Like 'Will it rain today?'
    Waste the hours with talking, talking
    These twisted game we play

    We're strange allies
    With warring hearts
    What wild-eyed beast you be
    The Space Between
    The wicked lies we tell
    And hope to keep us safe from the pain

    Will I hold you again?
    Will I hold...

    Look at us spinning out in
    The madness of a roller coaster
    You know you went off like a devil
    In a church in the middle of a crowded room
    All we can do, my love
    Is hope we don't take this ship down

    The Space Between
    Where you're smiling high
    Is where you'll find me if I get tickled
    The Space Between
    The bullets in our firefight
    Is where I'll be hiding, waiting for you
    The rain that falls
    Splash in your heart
    Ran like sadness down the window into...
    The Space Between
    Our wicked lies
    Is where we hope to keep safe from pain

    Take my hand
    'Cause we're walking out of here
    Oh, right out of here
    Love is all we need here
    The Space Between
    What's wrong and right
    Is where you'll find me hiding, waiting for you
    The Space Between
    Your heart and mine
    Is the space we'll fill with time
    The Space Between...

    Ducky should get a kick out of this. I'm not even a Tori Amos fan (meaning I don't know many of her songs), but this song makes my top 10 list of all time. I've loved it & listened to it for almost ten years now. Great song. Still makes me cry.

    ~~Butterfly by Tori Amos~~

    Stinky soul
    Get a little lost in my own
    Hey General
    Need a little love in that hole of yours
    So one ways now and Saturdays now
    And our kittens all wrapped in cement

    From cradle to gumdrops
    Got me running girl as fast as I can
    And is it right, Butterfly,
    They like you better framed and dried

    Daddy, dear
    If I can kill one man
    Why not two?
    Well, nurses smile
    When you've got iron veins
    You can't stain their pretty shoes
    And pompoms and cherry blondes
    And the kittens still wrapped in cement

    From God's saviours to gumdrops
    Got me running girl as fast as I can
    And is it right, Butterfly,
    They like you better framed and dried

    Got a pretty pretty garden
    Pretty garden, yes

    No Doubt
    Underneath It All

    There's times where I want something more
    Someone more like me
    There's times when this dress rehearsal
    Seems incomplete
    But, you see the colors in me like no one else
    And behind your dark glasses you're...
    You're something else

    [Chorus:]
    You're really lovely
    Underneath it all
    You want to love me
    Underneath it all
    I'm really lucky
    Underneath it all
    You're really lovely
    ~~~~~~~
    For real, cuz underneath it all
    You are my real prince charming
    Like the heat from the fire
    you were always burning
    Anytime you're around
    My body keeps staling
    for your touch your kisses and your sweet romancin'
    Theres anotha side a you weh dis here woman a adore
    aside from your temper everything else secure
    you're good for me baby
    Oh that, I'm sure
    Cuz over and over again
    I want more
    ~~~~~~~

    ( I obviously left out alot, here)

    Here's an oldie. Love it, love it.

    "For Once In My Life" Frank Sinatra

    For once in my life I've got someone who needs me
    Someone I've needed so long
    For once unafraid I can go where life leads me
    And somehow I know I'll be strong
    For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
    Long before I knew
    Someone warm like you
    Could make my dreams come true

    For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
    Not like it's hurt me before
    For once I've got someone I know won't desert me
    And I'm not alone anymore

    For once I can say: This is mine you can't take it
    As long as I've got love I know I can make it
    For once in my life I've got someone who needs me
