A Song That I Feel Is Fitting...

hey everyone, i'm posting the lyrics to a song by the drive by truckers called "******* lonely love" that i think is very fitting for what we all deal with:

i've got green and i've got blues

everyday there's a little less difference between the two

i belly up and disappear

well, i ain't really drowning cuz i see the beach from hear

i could take a greyhound home, when i got there you'd be gone along with everything a home is made up of.

so, i'll take two of what you're having, i'll take all of what you got, to kill this ******* lonely love

sister listen to what your daddy says

don't be ashamed of things that hide behind your dress

belly up and arch your back

well, i ain't really falling to sleep, i'm fading to black

you could come to me by plane, but that just wouldn't be the same as that old motel room in texarkana was

so, i'll take two of what you're having, i'll take all of what you got, to kill this ******* lonely love

stop me if you've heard this one before, a man walks into a bar and leaves before his ashes hit the floor

stop me if i ever get that far, the suns a desperate star that burns like every single one before

and i could find another dream, one that keeps me warm and clean, but i ain't dreaming anymore, i'm waking up.

so, i'll take two of what you're having, i'll take all of what you got, to kill this ******* lonely, ******* lonely love.

 

that's it.  i hope to christ that i'm not dreaming anymore, but waking up.  the guy who wrote the song said this about it, "loneliness can be drowned if you hold it under long enough, but it takes a lot of other things with it".  never, for me, truer words have been spoken.  hope everyone is as well as they can be.

the dude.

Thanks for sharing this. The quote about loneliness being drowned... makes a lot of sense. Hope life is treating you with kindness and that loneliness is leaving you alone. Hugs, D.
