Sebadoh - Think (Let Tomorrow Bee)

Could I hold on, or should I hold on to you?
Ask, I'll tell the truth; there's nothing I should hide
And if I move too slow, if you're bored I need to know
Iím weak to hide inside, to force what I don't feel
If all we have is a question, there's no hope to find a future
But something in me cries for you
It feels too real this time
I think I love you, though I don't know what love means
Girl of my dreams, or a friend that one day leaves
Could I trust this when I've lied to myself before?
Will I do it all again to taste what I've imagined we could be?
Look what I've become; this pressure that we feel
In a world of possibilities, this may not prove real
But could we give enough, backed against a wall?
Too close to breathe, but too far to fall
All I ever wanted was to feel you closer to me
And it's sad to feel this resistance
What once before had felt so free
Let tomorrow bee
I can't be so impatient
Pushing every answer, when there isn't any question
Let me feel good now
And though this may have to end, I hope I'm always with you
Honestly your friend
I think I love you

Lemonheads - "Big Gay Heart"


Take a look into some big grey eyes and ask yourself
You wanna make 'em cry?
Lookin' out of them it's just as well
But you're gonna live to see I'm gonna ask you why

Either way you got a bone to pick, can't you leave that to somebody else?
I don't need you to suck my d!ck or to help me feel good about myself

Big gay heart, please don't break my big gay heart
Big gay heart, please don't break my big gay heart

Why can't you look after yourself and not down on me?
Do you have to try to p!ss me off just 'cause I'm easy to please?
Why can't you look after yourself and not down on me?
Yeah well I understand that you're not with the big gay scene

If you can find a way to add it up,
it might be hard but it might be enough
I'd be grateful, I'd be satisfied,
And you might find in time it wouldn't feel so bad
After all it doesn't take that much and it would mean the song to me
For you to lose the part that's still afraid and not prepared to see

My big gay heart
In the dark, my big gay heart
Big gay heart, please don't break my big gay heart

Why can't you look after yourself and not down on me?
Do you have to try to p!ss me off just 'cause I'm easy to please?
Why can't you look after yourself and not down on me?
Yeah well I understand that you're not with the big gay scene

Big gay heart, please don't break my big gay heart
Big gay heart, please don't break my big gay heart
My big gay heart
In the dark, big gay heart
My big gay heart, please don't break my big gay heart

Sebadoh - "Soul and Fire"


It's all a matter of soul and fire
Infatuation or true desire
The thrill of discovery, divine intervention
Cruel, cruel change, pain of rejection
As you walk away, think of all the joy we shared
If you decide you need me, I'll be wondering if I care
Not there to soothe your soul, friend to tender friend
I think our love is coming to an end

King persuader, congratulations
Share her heart, you bought her soul
Princess confusion, come to me again
Saying goodbye was so much fun

When you walk away, feel the freedom in your heart
There's a joy in letting go, free to find a love apart
When I lose control, I need a kind, forgiving friend
But I think our love is coming to an end
I know our love is coming to an end

Folk Implosion - "Natural One"


I'm the one natural one, make it easy
we can take it inside
where I can love how I like if I want it
whatever keeps me high

yeah, we can take it
good and loose on an endless spree
good because we made it
and when momma's not around
there's no telling what we'll do when we're free

I'm the one natural one, make it easy
we can take it inside
I can have it cause I act like I love it
it's a matter of pride

yeah, we can take it
good excuse for an endless spree
good because we made it
and if the world is falling down,
it may as well crash with me

when I'm numb natural one
(...)
it's the one natural one
(there's no telling what we'll do when we're free)
when I'm numb natural one
(there's no telling what we'll do when we're free)
it's the one natural one
(and you may as well crash with me)
when I'm numb natural one
(there's no telling what we'll do when we're free)
it's the one natural one
(there's no telling what we'll do when we're free)
when I'm numb natural one
(there's no telling what we'll do when we're free)
it's the one natural one
(and you may as well crash with me)

P.J. Harvey "Man-Size"

I'm coming up man-sized
Skinned alive
I want to fit
I've got to get
Man-sized
I'm heading on
Handsome
Got my leather boots on

Got my girl and she's a wow
I cast my iron knickers down
Man-sized no need to shout
Can you hear, can you hear me now?

I'm man-sized
Man-sized

I'll measure time
I'll measure height
I'll calculate
My birthrite
Good Lord I'm big
I'm heading on
Man-size
Got my leather boots on

Got my girl and she's a wow
I cast my iron knickers down
Man-sized no need to shout
Can you hear, can you hear me now?

My babe looking cool and neat
I'm pretty sure good enough to eat
Man-size no need to shout
Let it all, let it all hang out

I'm man-size
Man-size X7

Silence my lady head
Get girl out of my head
Douse hair with gasoline
Set it light and set it free

Silence my lady head
Get girl out of my head
Douse hair with gasoline
Set it light and set it free

P.J. Harvey "Dress"

Put on that dress
I'm going out dancing
Starting off red
Gleam and sparkling he'll see me
Music play make me dreamy for dancing
Must be a way that I can dress to please him
It's hard to walk and the dress is not easy
I'm swinging over like a heavy loaded fruit tree

If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on

It's sad to see
Lonely or this lonely
Close up my eyes
Dreamy dreamy music make it be alright
Music play make it good for romancing
Must be a way I can dress to please him
Swing and sway everything will be alright
But he's feeling so down tight tonight

If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on

You pretty thing
My man says
But I bought you beautiful dresses
You pretty thing
My man says
But I bought you beautiful dresses

Filthy type your dress is filthy
I'm falling flat and my arms are empty
Get away better get it out of this room
A fallen woman in dancing costume

If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on
If you put it on

Lenny Kravitz - "Believe"

I am you and you are me
Why's that such a mystery?
If you want it you got to believe
Who are we? We're who we are
Riding on this great big star
We've got to stand up if we're gonna be free yeah

If you want it you got it
You just got to believe
Believe in yourself
'Cause it's all just a game
We just want to be loved

The Son of God is in our face
Offering us eternal grace
If you want it you've got to believe
'Cause being free is a state of mind
We'll one day leave this all behind
Just put your faith in God and one day you'll see it

If you want it you got it
You just got to believe
Believe in yourself
'Cause it's all just a game
We just want to be loved

The future's in our present hands
Let's reach right in
Let's understand
If you want it you've got to believe yeah

If you want it you got it
You just got to believe
Believe in yourself yeah
'Cause it's all just a game
We just want to be loved

Donovan - "Season of the Witch"


When I look out my window,
Many sights to see.
And when I look in my window,
So many different people to be
That it's strange, so strange.

You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
Mm, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.

When I look over my shoulder,
What do you think I see?
Some other cat looking over
His shoulder at me
And he's strange, sure he's strange.

You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
Beatniks are out to make it rich,
Oh no, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.

You've got to pick up every stitch,
The rabbits running in the ditch,
Beatniks are out to make it rich,
Oh no, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch.

When I look.
When I look out my window,
What do you think I see?
And when I look in my window,
So many different people to be
It's strange, sure it's strange.

You've got to pick up every stitch,
You've got to pick up every stitch,
The rabbits running in the ditch,
Oh no, must be the season of the witch,
Must be the season of the witch, yeah,
Must be the season of the witch.

Closer to You

How soft a whisper can get
When youíre walking through a crowded space
I hear every word being said
And I remember that everyday
I get a little bit closer to you

How long an hour can take
When youíre staring into open space
When I feel Iím slipping further away
I remember that everyday
I get a little bit closer to you

These are the days
That I wonít get back
I wonít hear you cry
Or hear you laugh
And when itís quiet
And I donít hear a thing
I can always hear you breathe

You know thereís nowhere else
Iíve wanted to be
Than be there when you need me
Iím sorry too
But donít give up on me
And just remember that when you get asleep
I got a little bit closer to you

Love Among the Ruins

The sky was falling, heaven was calling.
When danger crashes, rose from the ashes.

Like two statues hidden inside ancient rock,
we were praying for the secrets to unlock.

And when the sun had turned its back on us,
in the dark our love kept track of us,
pushed together by the lack of love.

We held each other tightly through our hell of dreams.
I still hear the never-endig echo of those screams.

But it's a life not made for reliving,
it's a life that makes your soul forgiving.
We sealed our bond from the beginning.

Aching, affection, vulnerable protection;
falling, captured, crawling, rapture.

I just had an amazing mystical experience with a friend. I am bursting with brilliance and when he left and I sat down here to share, this song was playing over and over in my head. I heard it last night on my favorite singing audition show. The lyrics...

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Cant you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence

I really don't know why I like this song...?

I suppose it reminds me of trying to forget someone.... doing whatever it takes to move on.

"Hate Me"
Blue October

I have to block out thoughts of you so I don't lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I'm alone
Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home
There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you. Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you love me just to put it in my face?
And will you never try to reach me? It is I that wanted space

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

I'm sober now for 3 whole months it's one accomplishment that you helped me with
The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won't touch again
In a sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
So I'll drive so fu**ing far away that I never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you

Hate me in ways
Yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I had made
And like a baby boy I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes crying and I held your face in my hand
And then I fell down yelling "make it go away!"
Just make a smile come back and shine just like it used to be
And then she whispered "How can you do this to me?"

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you

Hate me in ways
Yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

Did you ever see the film,
"A Man of No Importance"?
It stars Albert Finney,
possibly my favorite actor.
Anyway, its all about this bus-driver,
who wants to put on a production
of Oscar Wilde's "Salome",
and the opposition he faces
from the conservative people in his town.
Good flick!

All babies are born saying God's name
Over and over,
All born singing God's name

All babies are flown from the Universe
From there they're lifted by the hands of angels
God gives them the stars to use as ladders

She hears their calls
She is mother and father

All babies are born out of great pain
Over and over
All born into great pain

All babies are crying
For no - one remembers God's name

All babies are born saying God's name
Over and over,
All born singing God's name

All babies are flown from the Universe
From there they're lifted by the hands of angels
God gives them the stars to use as ladders

She hears their calls
She is mother and father

All babies are born out of great pain
Over and over
All born into great pain
All babies are crying

For no - one remembers God's name

There's only love
There's only love
There's only love in this world

There's only love
There's only love
There's only love in this world

Some Sarah McLachlan today.....

Angel

Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay
there's always some reason
to feel not good enough
and it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
oh beautiful release
memory seeps from my veins
let me be empty
oh and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
and everywhere you turn
there's vultures and thieves at your back
the storm keeps on twisting
keep on building the lies
that you make up for all that you lack
it don't make no difference
escaping one last time
it's easier to believe
in this sweet madness oh
this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

Silence

Give... me... release
Witness me,
I am outside
Give me peace

Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to... believe that
I'd get caught up,
When the rage in me subsides

Passion, choke the flower...
'til she... cries no more
Possessing all... the beauty
Hungry still, for more

Heaven holds a sense of wonder...
And I wanted to... believe that
I'd get caught up
When the rage in me, subsides

In this white wave,
I am sinking...
In this silence...
In this white wave,
In this silence,
I believe...

I can't... help this longing
Comfort... me.
I... can't... hold it all in...
If... you... won't let me

Heaven holds a sense of wonder...
And I wanted to... believe that
I'd get caught up,
When the rage in me subsides

In this white wave,
I am sinking,
In this silence...
In this white wave,
In this silence
I believe...

I have seen you,
In this white wave,
You are silent
You are breathin'...
In this white wave
I am free...

When She Loved Me
(from Toy Story 2)

When somebody loved me,
Everything was beautiful.
Every hour we spent together,
Lives within my heart.

And when she was sad,
I was there to dry her tears,
And when she was happy so was I.
When she loved me.

Through the summer and the fall,
We had each other that was all.
Just she and I together,
Like it was meant to be.

And when she was lonely,
I was there to comfort her,
And I knew that she loved me.

So the years went by,
I stayed the same.
But she began to drift away.
I was left alone.
Still I waited for the day,
When she'd say "I will always love you"

Lonely and forgotten,
Never thought she'd look my way,
And she smiled at me and held me,
Just like she used to do.
Like she loved me,
When she loved me.

When somebody loved me,
Everything was beautiful,
Every hour we spent together,
Lives within my heart.
When she loved me.

I Will Remember You

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Remember all the good times that we had
We let them slip away from us when things got bad
Clearly I first saw you, smiling in the sun
I want to feel your warmth upon me, I want to be the one

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so tired,I can't sleep
Standin' on the edge of something much too deep
It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside, we can't be heard

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to lose
Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
Gave me everything he had, oh he gave me life

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
Weep not for the memories

indigo girls - 'mystery'


Each time you'd pull down the driveway,
i wasn't sure when i would
see you again.
yours was a twisted blind-sided highway,
no matter which road you took then.
oh you set up your place in my thoughts,
moved in and made my thinking crowded.
now we're out in the back with the barking dogs,
my heart the red sun your heart the moon clouded.
i could go crazy on a night like tonight
when summer's beginning to give up her fight
and every thought's a possibility and voices are heard
but nothing is seen.
why do you spend this time with me?
maybe an equal mystery.
so what is love then,
is it dictated or chosen?
does it sing like the hymns of 1000 years,
or is it just pop emotion.
and if it ever was here and it left,
does it mean it was never true?
and to exist it must elude,
is that why i think these things of you,?
but i could go crazy on a night like tonight
when summer's beginning to give up her fight
and every thought's a possibility
and voices are heard but nothing is seen.
why do you spend this time with me?
maybe an equal mystery oh
but you like the taste of danger,
it shines like sugar on your lips
and you like to stand in the line of fire,
just to show you can shoot straight from your hip
there must be a 1000 things you would die for,
i can hardly think of two.
but not everything is better spoken aloud,
not when i'm talking to you.
oh the pirate gets the ship and the girl tonight,
breaks a bottle to christen her.
basking in the exploits of her thief,
she's a very good listener.
and maybe that's all that we need
is to meet in the middle of impossibility,
standing at opposite poles,
equal partners in a mystery.
we're standing at opposite poles..
equal partners in a mystery.


joni mitchell - 'A case of you'

Just before our love got lost you said
I am as constant as a northern star
And I said, constant in the darkness
Wheres that at?
If you want me Ill be in the bar

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue tv screen light
I drew a map of canada
Oh canada
And your face sketched on it twice

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet
Oh Id still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
Im frightened by the devil
And Im drawn to those ones that aint afraid
I remember that time that you told me, you said
Love is touching souls
Surely you touched mine
Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
And you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
Still Id be on my feet
And still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
Color go to him, stay with him if you can
Oh but be prepared to bleed
Oh but you are in my blood youre my holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter, bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still Id be on my feet
Id still be on my feet

Cool. I havent heard either of the songs I just posted lyrics to. My girlfriend sends me lyrics sometimes, and I like them so I post them. That joni mitchell song is one of her favorites, too.


take care

Listening to Marc Cohn this afternoonÖ..

Dig Down Deep

Baby let's go below the surface
See what we can find
There's no reason to be nervous
'Cause it happens all the time

I don't want to go up to the mountain
I don't need to go down to the sea
Gonna sit right here 'till we unravel
The mystery

While the lights of the city
Are shining below
Gonna hold onto you girl
And never let go
While everyone else is just walking around
In their sleep
Baby let's dig down
Dig down deep
I wanna dig down deep

And I don't wanna wait until tomorrow
'Cause the fortune said that "The time is now"
It's time to find out what we're doing
What we're doing anyhow

Let's go out in the moonlight
And walk for awhile
Maybe stay up all night and we could
Talk for awhile
Kick off your shoes
'Cause you've got nothing to lose
But your sleep
Baby let's dig down
Dig down deep
I wanna dig down deep

It's an open invitation
So baby don't you cry
It's a life long celebration
And I think we're right on time
It's a feeling in your heart
And a lump in the throat
It's a strange and lovely ride
Wanna dig down deep inside

While the lights of the city
Are shining below
Gonna hold onto you girl
And never let go
While everyone else is just walking around
In their sleep
Baby let's dig down
Dig down deep
I wanna dig down deep

Could you dig down deep
I wanna dig down deep

Strangers in a Car

There's a stranger in a car
Driving down your street
Acts like he knows who you are
Slaps his hand on the empty seat and says
"Are you gonna get in
Or are you gonna stay out?"
Just a stranger in a car
Might be the one they told you about

Well you never were one for cautiousness
You open the door
He gives you a tender kiss
And you can't even hear them no more --
All the voices of choices
Now only one road remains
And strangers in a car
Two hearts
Two souls
Tonight
Two lanes

You don't know where you're goin'
You don't know what you're doin'
Hell it might be the highway to heaven
And it might be the road to ruin
But this is a song
For strangers in a car
Baby maybe that's all
We really are
Strangers in a car
(Driving down your street)
Just strangers in a car
(Driving down your street)
Strangers in a car

The Things Weíve Handed Down

Don't know much about you
Don't know who you are
We've been doing fine without you
But, we could only go so far
Don't know why you chose us
Were you watching from above
Is there someone there that knows us
Said we'd give you all our love

Will you laugh just like your mother
Will you sigh like your old man
Will some things skip a generation
Like I've heard they often can
Are you a poet or a dancer
A devil or a clown
Or a strange new combination of
The things we've handed down

I wonder who you'll look like
Will your hair fall down and curl
Will you be a mama's boy
Or daddy's little girl
Will you be a sad reminder
Of what's been lost along the way
Maybe you can help me find her
In the things you do and say

And these things that we have given you
They are not so easily found
But you can thank us later
For the things we've handed down

You may not always be so grateful
For the way that you were made
Some feature of your father's
That you'd gladly sell or trade
And one day you may look at us
And say that you were cursed
But over time that line has been
Extremely well rehearsed
By our fathers, and their fathers
In some old and distant town
From places no one here remembers
Come the things we've handed down

Already Home

I can see the sunshine
Coming through my room
Breaking down the winter of my discontent
Looking out my window
At the people passing by
I keep wondering where my old companion went

On the steps of the museum
I wrote a line or two
But it took a while to find my way
Back to something true like

CHORUS
This is where I lay my hat
This is where they know my name
This is where they show me that
A man's not so alone
Maybe I'm already home
(Sometimes you've got to go back)
Maybe I'm already home
(Sometimes you don't know why)

Rolling down the window
Burning up the daze
Cutting through the veil that keeps on blinding me
I was only sleeping
Waiting here for you
Waiting for your touch that keeps reminding me

Well I've seen the world of wonders
Been underneath it too
But it took a while just to find my way
Back to something true like

CHORUS

Why it had to take me so long
Just to find a place that really feels
This must be where I belong
Thinking about it
All I had to do was click my heels

CHORUS

Medicine Man

Lately he can feel it
Turning off inside his heart
She's calling him from the car phone
And she's falling apart
Now he could call in her prescription
And they will take it down off the shelf
But he knows that he can't save her from herself no more
No more

And you can ride home in the country doctor
And you might do the best that you can
But who is gonna help the medicine man
Who is gonna save him?

Now he always was a healer
There was something in his eyes
And his hand upon your head
When fever started to rise
And there's someone he lost long ago
Now there's flowers on her grave
And they say that it's still her
That he's trying to save
He's trying to save her

And you can ride home in the country doctor
And you might do the best that you can
But who is gonna help the medicine man
Who is gonna save the medicine man?
Who is gonna save him?

Who is gonna save him?

Later on in the evening
When the sun goes sinking down
He goes out for a walk
Along the sound
And he thinks he can hear her
Calling him away
But he tells her he must wait
Another day
Wait another day

Mine is by Aerosmith the song 'Cryin' it's so passionate.

There was a time
When I was so broken hearted
Love wasn't much of a friend of mine
The tables have turned, yeah
Cause me and them ways have parted
That kind of love was the killin' kind
Now listen
All I want is someone I can't resist
I know all I need to know by the way that I got kissed


I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' ‘cause I let you
Do what you do - down on me


Now there's not even breathin' room
Between pleasure and pain
Yeah you cry when we're makin' love
Must be one and the same


It's down on me
Yeah I got to tell you one thing
It's been on my mind
Girl I gotta say
We're partners in crime
You got that certain something
What you give to me
Takes my breath away
Now the word out on the street
Is the devil's in your kiss
If our love goes up in flames
It's a fire I can't resist


v I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' ‘cause I let you
Do what you do to me


Cause what you got inside
Ain't where your love should stay
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love
If you give your heart away


I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' just to let you
Do what you do what you do down to me, baby, baby, baby


I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm dyin' cause I let you
Do what you do down to , down to, down to, down to
I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm dyin' to forget you
Your love is sweet
I was cryin' when I met you

More great music,everyone!
Joni Mitchell is definately one of my favorite songwriters ever.
She is,not surprisingly,a Scorpio

There are so many of her lyrics that I love;
it would take pages and pages to post them all here.
Anyway, here is one of her songs from the past that
was running around in my head
recently while I was letting go of someone's memory in order to make room for the new:

Lesson in Survival
~Joni Mitchell

Spinning out on turns
That gets you tough
Guru books-the bible
Only a reminder
That youre just not good enough
You need to believe in something
Once I could in our love
Black road
Double yellow line
Friends and kin
Campers in the kitchen
Thats fine sometimes
But I know my needs
My sweet tumbleweed
I need more quiet times
By a river flowing
You and me
Deep kisses
And the sun going down

Maybe its paranoia
Maybe its sensitivity
Your friends protect you
Scrutinize me
I get so damn timid
Not at all the spirit
Thats inside of me
Oh baby I cant seem to make it
With you socially
Theres this reef around me
Im looking way out at the ocean
Love to see that green water in motion
Im going to get a boat
And we can row it
If you ever get the notion
To be needed by me
Fresh salmon frying
And the tide rolling in

I went to see a friend tonight
was very late when I walked in
My talking as it rambled
Revealed suspicious reasoning
The visit seemed to darken him
I came in as bright
As a neon light
And I burned out
Right there before him
I told him these things
Im telling you now
Watched them buckle up
In his brow
When you dig down deep
You lose good sleep
And it makes you
Heavy company
I will always love you
Hands alike
Magnet and iron
The souls
