That's Just the way I am.

I have always been a little obsessed with music... any kind of music. My widespread taste in music typically baffles people, but It doesn't matter to me what "kind" of music it is if it talks to me. Here are some of my favorite all time song lyrics. I'll probably post several of these as time progresses, you cxan expect this at least once a month.


Through many dangers, toils, and snares,I have already come:'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,And grace will lead me home.- - - John Newton, "Amazing Grace"

Because you're mine, I walk the line.- - - Johnny Cash, "I Walk the Line"

Doesn't anybody stay in one place any more?- - - Carole King, "Far Away"

Every time I look in the mirror, All these lines on my face getting clearer, The past is gone It goes by, like dusk to dawn Isn't that the way Everybody's got their dues in life to pay- - - Aerosmith, "Dream On"

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose.Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free. - - - Kris Kristofferson/Janice Joplin, "Me and Bobby McGee"

How many times can a man turn his head,and pretend that he just doesn't see?- - - Bob Dylan "Blowing in the Wind"

I come to you defenses down with the trust of a child.- - - Peter Gabriel "Red Rain"

I've been trying to get down to the heart of the matter but my will gets weak and my thoughts seem to scatter but I think it's about forgiveness... forgiveness, even if you don't love me anymore. - - -Don Henly/India Arie "Heart of The Matter"

In every heart there is a room, A sanctuary safe and strong, To heal the wounds from lovers past, Until a new one comes along"- - - Billy Joel "And So It Goes"

It's the heart afraid of dying, that never learns to dance;It's the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance;It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give;And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live.- - - Amanda McBroom/Bette Midler, "The Rose"

I've looked at life from both sides now, From up and down, and still somehow, It's life's illusions I recall, I really don't know life at all.- - - Joni Mitchell "Both Sides Now"

I've seen fire and I've seen rain, I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end, I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, But I always thought that I'd see you again- - - James Taylor "Fire and Rain"

It was your song that made me sing, It was your song that gave me wings, It was your light that shined guiding my heart to find, This place where I belong, It was your song.
Dreams can come true With God's great angels like you- - -Garth Brooks "Your Song"

Love can touch us one time, And last for a lifetime And never let go till we're gone- - - Celine Dion "My Heart Will Go On"

This is the way I need to wake, I wake to you.--- Joshua Radin "Sky"

"I look in the mirror and all I see are your brown eyes looking back at me, they're the only thing you ever gave to me at all..." ---Kelly Picker "California"

"People killin, people dyin, Children hurt ain't even cryin. Could you practice what you preach or would you turn the other cheek" --- Black Eyed Peas "Where is the Love"


"The Tall blonde let out cry of despair, she said I would have cut it myself if I knew men could climb hair. I need to find another tower somewhere and stay away from the window" --- Sara Barielles "Fairytale"

She's got a way about her, And everywhere she goes, a million dreams of love surround her, everywhere.- - - Billy Joel "She's Got a Way"

Thanks for the joy that you're givin' me. I want you to know I believe in your song. Rhythm and rhyme and harmony, You help me along, makin' me strong, Give me the beat boys and free my soul. I wanna get lost in your rock n' roll And drift away . . .- - - Dobie Gray "Drift Away"

When my soul was in the lost-and-found, You came along to claim it.- - - Carole King, "Tapestry"

When you're weary, feeling small, When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all, I'm on your side when times get rough, And friends just can't be found, Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down- - - Simon and Garfunkel. "Bridge Over Troubled Water"

"I'd gladly walk across the desert with no shoes upon my feet, to share with you the last bite of bread I had to eat..." ---Wynona "Love can build a bridge"

Trying to learn from what's behind you, And never knowing what's in store, Makes each day a constant battle, Just to stay between the shores.- - - Garth Brooks, "The River"

"For you I'd Bleed myself dry" --- Coldplay "Yellow"

"You make me want to... hang up the phone, drive across town, walk through your door and lay ya' down...kiss ya 'til ya feel the truth" Luke Bryan "You Make Me Want To"

"My Dear, we're slow dancing in a burning room" --- John Mayer

"She's a gemini-capricorn, thinks all men are addicted to porn, I don't agree with her half the time, but d*mn I'm glad she's mine... her eyes, that's where hope lies, that's where blue skies, meet the sunrise, her eyes, that's where I go, when I go home"---Pat Monahan "Her eyes"

"In the back country of Brazil, I met a young brother that made me feel that I could accomplish anything, you see just like me he wanted to sing... he had no windows and no doors. He lived a simple life and was extremely poor, on top of all of this he had no eyesight... but that didn't keep him from seeing the light. He said, What's it like in the USA? and all I did was complain, he said... living here is paradise, he taught me PARADISE IS IN YOUR MIND" --- India Arie "There's Hope"

I'm so excited too! I'm thinking that we might have Emma's birthday party at Jan's in Montgomery. It'll be a good middle point for everyone. Maybe we could see you then.

Blessings!
