    This one always "gets me"...

    Where've You Been?
    (Sung by Kathy Mattea; Written by Don Henry and Jon Vezner)

    Claire had all but given up,
    When she and Edwin fell in love.
    She touched his face and shook her head,
    In disbelief, she sighed and said:
    "In many dreams I've held you near,
    "Now, at last, you're really here.

    "Where've you been?
    "I've looked for you forever and a day.
    "Where've you been?
    "I'm just not myself when you're away."

    He asked her for her hand for life,
    And she became a salesman's wife.
    He was home each night by eight,
    But one stormy evening, he was late.
    Her frightened tears fell to the floor,
    Until his key turned in the door.

    "Where've you been?
    "I've looked for you forever and a day.
    "Where've you been?
    "I'm just not myself when you're away."

    They'd never spent a night apart,
    For sixty years, she heard him snore.
    Now they're in a hospital,
    In separate beds on different floors.

    Claire soon lost her memory,
    Forgot the names of family.
    She never spoke a word again,
    Then one day, they wheeled him in.
    He held her hand and stroked her hair,
    In a fragile voice she said:

    "Where've you been?
    "I've looked for you forever and a day.
    "Where've you been?
    "I'm just not myself when you're away."
    "No, I'm just not myself when you're away."

    You guys should download this one...it's a great song!!!

    "Three Is A Charm" by the Starting Line
    Harder every time and it starts to show on my face and on my wall where all her pictures fall.
    Getting over a three leaf clover, that I thought was four.
    It's just the same as before.

    Forget me, girl, I'm still recovering from her.
    It hurts so.
    I'm sorry, girl, I'm in no shape to love.
    It's not you it's her.

    An absent-minded find was thought to be a lucky break, but what's at steak is only dignity.
    Alone I'll stand as they all dance.
    I've tangoed one too many times, the floor is just not for me.

    Forget me, girl, I'm still recovering from her.
    It hurts so.
    I'm sorry, girl, I'm in no shape to love.
    It's not you it's her.

    So take it slow, even stop every now and again when I say when.
    Here we go on our way to sudden change.
    Turn the tables to point the other way.
    And I'm dismayed.
    And if I stop breathing keep your arms around me.

    Forget me, girl, I'm still recovering from her.
    It hurts so.
    I'm sorry, girl, I'm in no shape to love.
    It's not you it's her.

    another one of my favorites from ani:

    -falling is like this-

    you give me that look that's like laughing
    with liquid in your mouth
    like you're choosing between choking
    and spitting it all out
    like you're trying to fight gravity
    on a planet that insists
    that love is like falling
    and falling is like this

    feels like reckless driving when we're talking
    it's fun while it lasts, and it's faster than walking
    but no one's going to sympathize when we crash
    they'll say "you hit what you head for, you get what you ask"
    and we'll say we didn't know, we didn't even try
    one minute there was road beneath us, the next just sky

    i'm sorry i can't help you, i cannot keep you safe
    i'm sorry i can't help myself, so don't look at me that way
    we can't fight gravity on a planet that insists
    that love is like falling
    and falling is like this.
    "I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes. I am out of control, and at times hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best .. "

    more ani:

    -hell yeah-

    life is a b movie
    it's stupid and it's strange
    a directionless story
    and the dialogue is lame
    but in the he said she said
    sometimes there's some poetry
    if you turn your back long enough
    and let it happen naturally
    oh, yeah
    hell yeah

    i got a face like a limp handshake
    hair like an accident scene
    i've been waking up slowly
    savoring the same old dream
    and somewhere between
    the folds of your memory
    i was sleeping soundly
    oh, yeah
    hell yeah

    'cause i like you
    but i know you don't know it
    i like you so much,
    i talk to everyone but you
    and i wonder
    what you would think of this little number
    i wonder
    what you would say if you knew

    if you don't ask the right questions
    every answer seems wrong
    i was a terrible waitress
    so i started to write songs
    and i don't know how i feel
    but i wonder if you feel like me
    do you ever get wrapped up
    in the folds of my memory
    oh, yeah
    hell, yeah

    'cause i like you
    but i know you don't know it
    i like you so much
    i talk to everyone but you
    and i wonder
    what you would think of this little number
    yeah i wonder
    what you would say if you knew

    there's a river of people
    that runs past my eyes
    and it's beautiful enough
    just to watch it go by
    but the trouble with water is
    she'll always leave you for gravity
    i never even told you
    i had a crush on you or anything
    oh, yeah
    hell yeah

    life is a b movie
    it's stupid and it's strange
    a directionless story
    and the dialogue is lame
    but in the he said she said
    sometimes there's some poetry
    if you turn your back long enough
    and let it happen naturally
    oh, yeah
    hell yeah

    OMG lobie,
    that kathy mattea songs makes me cry when i hear it.

    how about that song by colin raye:
    Love Me

    i read a note my grandma wrote
    back in 1923
    grandpa kept it in his coat
    and he showed it once to me

    he said boy you might not understand
    but a long long time ago
    grandmas daddy didn't like me none
    but i loved your grandma so

    we had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
    get married in the first town we came to and live forever
    but nailed to the tree where we were suppose to meet instead
    i found this letter and this is what it said:

    if you get there before i do
    don't give up on me
    i'll meet you when my chores are through
    i don't know how long i'll be
    but i'm not gonna let you down
    darling wait and see
    and between now and then
    until i see you again
    i'll be lovin' you
    love, me

    i read those words just hours before my grandma passed away
    in the doorway of the church where me and gandpa stopped to pray
    i know i've never seen him cry
    in all my fifteen years
    but as he read these words to her
    his eyes filled up with tears

    if you get there before i do
    don't give up on me
    i'll meet you when my chores are through
    i don't know how long i'll be
    but i'm not gonna let you down
    darling wait and see
    and between now and then
    until i see you again
    i'll be lovin' you
    love, me

    and between now and then
    until i see you again
    i'll be lovin' you
    love, me

    here's a little "song" for ya... it absolutely gives me chills. it was first done by eminem, and it's a song that is really only this guy talking to his infant daughter in the car while he is going to dispose of the child's mother, stepfather and stepbrother's body.

    tori amos redid this song on "strange little girls" but felt it needed to be done from another point of view. i guess this song really (understandably) disturbed her... "all of these people are dancing and laughing and having a great time with this song - but, there's someone who's not laughing...and, that's the lady in the trunk." so, she did it from her point of view, and god! is it ever creepy...

    '97 bonnie and clyde


    baby, your da-da loves you
    and i'm always gonna be here for you
    no matter what happened
    you're all i got in this world
    i'd never give you up for nothing
    nobody in this world is ever gonna keep you from me
    i love you
    come on, hey hey, we going to the beach
    grab a couple of toys, and let da-da strap you in the car seat
    where's mama? she's taking a little nap in the trunk
    oh that smell; da-da musta runned over a skunk
    now i know what you're thinking; it's kinda late to go swimming
    but you know you're mama
    she's one of those type of women, that do crazy things
    and if she don't get her way, she'll throw a fit
    don't play wit da-da's toy knife honey, let go of it
    now don't look so upset, why you acting bashful
    don't you wanna help da-da build a sand castle
    and mama said she wants to show you how far she can float
    don't worry about that little boo-boo on her throat
    it's just a little scratch, it don't hurt
    her was eating dinner while you were sweepin'
    spilt ketchup on her shirt
    mama's messy isn't she
    we'll let her wash off in the water
    and me and you can pway by ourselves, can't we
    just the two of us, just the two of us
    just the two of us
    just the two of us
    see honey, there's a place called heaven and a place called hell
    there's a placed called prison and a place called jail
    and da-da's probably on his way to all of 'em, except one
    cause mama's got a new husband, and a stepson
    and you don't want a brother do ya
    maybe when you're old enough to understand a little better
    i'll explain it to you
    but for now, we'll just say mama was real real bad
    she was being mean to dad, and made him real real mad
    but i still feel sad that i put her on timeout
    sit back in your chair, honey, quit trying to climb out
    i told you it's ok, hey hey, you wanna bah-bah
    take a night-night
    na-na-goo-goo gah-gah
    or make coo-coo-cocka
    da'll change your di-ey
    clean the baby up so i can take a nighty-nighty
    your da'll wake her up as soon as we get to the water
    97' bonnie & clyde, me and my daughter
    me and my daughter
    me and my daughter
    just the two of us, just the two of us
    just the two of us
    just the two of us
    wake up sweepy head, we're here
    before we pway
    we gonna take mommy for a wittle walk out on the pier
    baby don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea
    mama's too sweepy to hear you screaming in her ear
    that's why you can't get her to wake
    but don't worry
    da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake
    here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock
    we'll tie it to her footsy, then we'll roll her off the dock
    ready now, here we go, on the count of phree
    1, 2, phree, weeeeeeee
    there goes mama, spwashing in the water
    no more fighting wit dad
    no more restraining order
    no more step da-da
    no more brother
    blow her kisses buh-bye
    tell mommy you love her
    now we'll go play in the sand, build a sand castle and junk
    but first, just help dad with two more things out of the trunk
    just. the. two. of. us...

    perhaps many will differ, but this is the funniest song I've ever heard. Ditto for lyrics

    United States of Whatever

    I went down to the beach and saw Kiki
    She was, like, all "ehhhh"
    And I was, like, "whatever!"

    Then this chick comes up to me and she's all, like,
    "Hey, aren't you that dude?"
    And I'm, like, "yeah, whatever!"

    So later I'm at the pool hall
    And this girl comes up
    And she's, like, "awww"
    And I'm, like, "yeah, whatever!"

    Cuz this is my
    United States of Whatever!
    And this is my
    United States of Whatever!
    And this is my
    United States of Whatever!

    And then it's three A.M.
    And I'm on the corner, wearing my leather
    This dude comes up and he's, like, "hey, punk!"
    I'm, like, "yeah, whatever!"

    Then I'm throwing dice in the alley
    Officer Leroy comes up and is, like,
    "Hey, I thought I told you..."
    And I'm, like, "yeah, whatever!"

    And then up comes Zafo
    I'm, like, "yo, Zafo. What's up?"
    He's, like, "nothin'"
    And I'm, like, "that's cool."

    Cuz this is my
    United States of Whatever!
    And this is my
    United States of Whatever!
