"How can you see into my eyes,
Like open doors?
Lading you down into my core,
Where I've become so numb. Without a soul,
My spirit's sleeping somewhere cold,
Until you find it there and lead it back,
(Wake me up),
Wake me up inside.(I can't wake up),
Wake me up inside...
a beautiful song and I think to some degree, everybody can relate to it. I know I do. I was going to post the lyrics but I decided not to. I'll just settle for explaining why I like it so much.
The song talks about how the wounds people have prevent them from reaching out and...
I've only just discovered this song, but it's quickly become a favourite and seems rather appropriate this week.Between what happened in Boston, things in the news around the world and several of my friends going through difficult times sometimes it feels like this world is such...
Today my kids and I went to the water park with the love of life. As we floated around in a double tube in the lazy river, he sun hotly beat down on us. The smell of sunblock fumed up from the bodies all around us. And this song came over the loudspeaker. It's been in my head...
This song haunted me when I was a kid, and I thought I understaood what it meant. There are days, like today, where it gets in my head and runs on repeat. So, from my brain to yours . . . I promise not to be this melancholy ll the time.
One of my very favourite songs by one of the favourite groups of my youth. This one reminds me of one particular college trip in 1977 when I flew up to NYC with a friend who is a native, and he gave me the tour. Alas, the one day the weather didn't cooperate was the best...
was the original Village People or the Pet Shop boys cover.I went for this one. It's such an uplifting song, the words, the way it builds and in this version just listen to the backing vocals of Sylvia Mason-James.
As most of my friends already know, I do not observe/celebrate Valentines day. Mostly it's a religious beliefs thing. However, even if that were not the case I probably still wouldn't choose to participate in the holiday. As I told a good friend recently: "I would much rather...
Im still alive, but Im barely breathing. Just prayed to a God that I dont believe in.
Cause I got time while she got freedom. Cause when a heart breaks, no it dont break even.
Her best days will be some of my worst. She finally met a man thats supposed to put her first. While im...
I've seen a change in my 8 year old daughter over the summer (she will soon be 9). I can sense a maturing of her personality as well as her physically looking less like a little girl. I understand that she must grow up and yet, I dread that it is happening so quickly. Almost...
Will Take You Places"
It'll stop you right in your tracks
Take a breath and change your path
Two roads you thought you'd never go down
Through highs and lows and endless nights
Through fire and darkness and to the light
Bring you to your knees, take your feet right off the...
Yes, the pronouns need to be reversed. , and no, he wasn't a singer, rather he made *me* sing... But boy, does it fit...
She was a friend to me when I needed one
Wasn't for her I don't know what I'd done
She gave me back something that was missing in me
"It's like you're a drug,
It's like you're a demon I can't face down,
It's like I'm stuck,
It's like I'm running from you all the time.
And I know I let you have all the power,
It's like the only company I seek is misery all around.
It's like you're a leech,
Sucking the life from...
“Celtic Ray” on his 1988 “Irish Heartbeat” album. I had originally planned on posting that version – the only one I was familiar with – but then I discovered this one. As much as I liked the other arrangement, this one is even better in my...
Just heard this recorded by some one other than the original and I keep singing it " as i walk this land of broken dreams I have visions of many things,happiness is just an illusion filled with sadness and confusion...."
One day a friend told me if I could help her bring chairs to her ballet class, arriving to class i stay to see how they practiced.
My friend approached and spend one of their pantis, sliper and leotard, so I put them and go with it.
At the beginning I didn't want, but could not...
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
I was driving down the road today, when this song came on. My thoughts scrambled as fast as I could look in the rearview mirror. Before I knew it, I was being pulled over for speeding. Now I have to go to court over this violation. The memory almost feels the same way looking...
today, and reminded of the first time I heard it a few years ago...
I was nursing a bout of "the blues", miserable over a breakup and crashed out on a close friend's couch. He was massaging my shoulders and a song came on his stereo; the lyrics spoke to me:
"I feel my wings...
