    Mood: Depressed

    "Breathe (2 AM)"

    2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake,
    "Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?,
    I don't love him. Winter just wasn't my season"
    Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
    Like they have any right at all to criticize,
    Hypocrites. You're all here for the very same reason

    'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
    And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
    No one can find the rewind button, girl.
    So cradle your head in your hands
    And breathe... just breathe,
    Oh breathe, just breathe

    May he turn 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
    "Just a Day", he said down to the flask in his fist,
    "Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year."
    Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while,
    But, my God, it's so beautiful when the boy smiles,
    Wanna hold him. Maybe I'll just sing about it.

    Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
    And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table.
    No one can find the rewind button, boys,
    So cradle your head in your hands,
    And breathe... just breathe,
    Oh breathe, just breathe

    There's a light at each end of this tunnel,
    You shout 'cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
    And these mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
    If you only try turning around.

    2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song
    If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer inside of me,
    Threatening the life it belongs to
    And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
    Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
    And I know that you'll use them, however you want to

    But you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
    And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
    No one can find the rewind button now
    Sing it if you understand.
    and breathe, just breathe
    woah breathe, just breathe,
    Oh breathe, just breathe,
    Oh breathe, just breathe.

    Mood: Guess what!?
    Hi guys. You remember that poem I wrote a while back called "Hidden Treasure" about the autistic boy that I had been working with occasionally? Well, I was working with the class again today and they have asked me to come on full time as his personal aide. I wont know for sure until I meet the teacher tomorrow and get evaluated, but its like a HUGE honor to be asked to do something like that. I am ecstatic. So yeah, things are looking up.

    YAY ME!!!!!

    Mood: DANG IT!

    Kind of in a nostalgic mood today. It goes along with my new post. So I dug out my old matchbox 20 cd and played a song that was very important to me in that former life of mine.
    ******************************************************
    Hang

    she grabs her magazines
    she packs her things and she goes
    she leaves the pictures hanging on the wall, she burns all
    her notes amd she knows, sheís been here too few years to feel this old

    he smokes his cigarette, he stays outside Ďtill itís gone
    if anybody ever had a heart, he wouldnít be alone
    he knows, sheís been here too few years, to be gone

    and we always say, it would be good to go away, someday
    but if thereís nothing there to make things change
    if itís the same for you Iíll just hang

    the trouble understand, is she got reasons he donít
    funny how he couldnít see at all, Ďtil she grabbed up her coat
    and she goes, sheís been here too few years to take it all in stride
    but still itís much too long, to let hurt go (you let her go)
    and we always say, it would be good to go away, someday
    but if thereís nothing there to make things change
    if itís the same for you Iíll just hang
    the same for you
    Iíll always hang
    well I always say, it would be good to go away
    but if things donít work out like we think
    and thereís nothing there to ease this ache
    but if thereís nothing there to make things change
    if itís the same for you, Iíll just hang

    Mood: The Usual

    Check out my new post and match it up. Should be pretty self explainatory.

    Someday, Somehow

    How the hell did we wind up like this
    Why weren't we able
    To see the signs that we missed
    And try to turn the tables

    I wish you'd unclench your fists
    And unpack your suitcase
    Lately there's been too much of this
    Dont think its too late

    Nothin's wrong
    just as long as
    you know that someday I will
    Someday, somehow
    gonna make it allright but not right now
    I know you're wondering when
    (You're the only one who knows that)
    Someday, somehow
    gonna make it allright but not right now
    I know you're wondering when

    Well i hoped that since we're here anyway
    We could end up saying
    Things we've always needed to say
    So we could end up stringing
    Now the story's played out like this
    Just like a paperback novel
    Lets rewrite an ending that fits
    Instead of a hollywood horror

    Nothin's wrong
    just as long as
    you know that someday I will

    Someday, somehow
    gonna make it allright but not right now
    I know you're wondering when
    (You're the only one who knows that)

    Mood: Overwhelmed

    Okay, so if you have read my newest post and/or some of my recent comments, then you can probably tell I am having trouble dealing with all the messed up shit going on in the US right now. So, I guess this is kinda how I feel, and kinda why I write.

    THE CHANGE

    One hand
    Reaches out
    And pulls a lost soul from harm
    While a thousand more go unspoken for
    They say what good have you done
    By saving just this one
    It's like whispering a prayer
    In the fury of a storm

    And I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world will know
    That it will not change me

    This heart
    Still believes
    The love and mercy still exist
    While all the hatred rage and so many say
    That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
    It's like trying to stop a fire
    With the moisture from a kiss

    And I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world will know
    That it will not change me

    As long as one heart still holds on
    Then hope is never really gone

    I hear them saying you'll never change things
    And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
    But it's not the world that I am changing
    I do this so this world we know
    Never changes me

    What I do is so
    This world will know
    That it will not change me

    Mood: Sigh...

    So, I was watching Cold Case tonight, err listening to it from my computer room rather and I heard one of my old favorites and am not walking round singing it. This journal was a toss up between it and Turn The Page, which deadndreaming inadvertantly stuck in my head ;). Enjoy:

    Don't stop believing

    Just a small town girl,
    livin' in a lonely world
    She took the midnight train goin' anywhere...
    Just a city boy,
    born and raised in South Detroit
    He took the midnight train goin' anywhere...

    A singer in a smokey room,
    the smell of wine and cheap perfume
    For a smile they can share the night
    It goes on and on and on and on...

    Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
    Their shadows searching in the night
    Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
    Hiding, somewhere in the night

    Working hard to get my fill,
    everybody wants a thrill
    Payin' anything to roll the dice,
    just one more time
    Some will win, some will lose
    Some were born to sing the blues
    Oh, the movie never ends
    It goes on and on and on and on

    (chorus)
    Don't stop believin'
    Hold on to the feelin'
    Streetlight people

    Mood: Thinking...

    I don't know why but now I seem to be stuck on this song so I hope it doesnt drill itself too far into anyone's brain ;)

    The Heart of The Matter

    I got the call today, I didnít want to hear
    But I knew that it would come
    An old true friend of ours was talking on the phone
    She said you found someone
    And I thought of all the bad luck,
    And the struggles we went through
    And I lost me and you lost you
    What are these voices outside loves open door
    Make us throw of our contentment
    And beg for something more?

    Iím learning to live without you now
    But I miss you sometimes
    And the more I know, the less I understand
    All the things I thought I knew, Iím learning again
    Iíve 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 its about forgiveness
    Forgiveness
    Even if, even if you donít love me anymore

    These times are so uncertain
    Thereís a yearning undefined
    ..... people filled with rage
    We all need a little tenderness
    How can love survive in such a graceless age?
    The trust and self-assurance that leads to happiness
    There the very things they kill, I guess
    Pride and competition
    Can not fill these empty arms
    And the work I put between us
    Doesnít keep me warm

    Iím learning to live without you now
    But I miss you baby
    The more I know, the less I understand
    All the things I thought I figured out
    I have to learn again
    Iíve been trying to get down
    To the heart of the matter
    But everything changes
    And my friends seem to scatter
    But I think its about forgiveness
    Forgiveness
    Even if, even if you donít love me anymore

    There are people in your life, whoíve come and gone
    They let you down and hurt your pride
    Better put it all behind you; life goes on
    You keep carrying that anger, Itíll eat you up inside

    Iíve 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 its about forgiveness
    Forgiveness
    Even if, even if you donít love me anymore

    Iíve been trying to get down
    To the heart of the matter
    Because the flesh will get weak
    And the ashes will scatter
    So Iím thinking about forgiveness
    Forgiveness
    Even if, even if you donít love me anymore

    Mood: Head Aching

    I cant seem to get this song out of my head for the last few days. Some of you younger folk will probably wonder what the hell it is and who the hell she is. I think maybe I am stuck on this song because I just found out that the ex associated with it is single again. Amazing how an old song can hold onto a memory for so long.

    Can't Make You Love Me

    Turn down the lights;
    Turn down the bed.
    Turn down these voices
    Inside my head.

    Lay down with me;
    Tell me no lies.
    Just hold me close;
    Don't patronize.

    Don't patronize me.

    'Cuz I can't make you love me
    If you don't.
    You can't make your heart feel
    Something it won't.
    Here in the dark
    In these final hours,
    I will lay down my heart
    And I'll feel the power;
    But you won't.
    No, you won't.
    'Cuz I can't make you love me
    If you don't.

    I'll close my eyes,
    Then I won't see
    The love you don't feel
    When you're holding me.

    Morning will come,
    And I'll do what's right;
    Just give me till then
    To give up this fight.

    And I will give up this fight.
