I realize the best part of life is the thinnest slice 

And it don’t count for much

But I’m not letting go

I believe there’s still much to believe in

He's Sure The Boy I Love: The Crystals

(spoken) "I always dreamed the boy I loved would come along/And he'd be tall and handsome, rich and strong/Now that boy I love has come to me/But he sure ain't the way I'd thought he'd be".

Honored Social Butterfly

All I know is the way that I feel

Whenever you’re around

You’ve got a way of lifting me up
Instead of bringing me down

Love in store, The Mac

"Never Forget" - Judas Priest - 2014 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApFyTdpRv5M 

 

As the sun sets on another day
All the memories will never fade away
Looking back to all those moments that we shared
Where it all began with all those dreams we dared
We leave with no regrets, we will never forget

 

 

Beautiful ballad and wonderful words to read/hear today (and any day).

The devil went down to Georgia, he was

lookin’ for a soul to steal

He was in a bind, ‘cause he was way behind

And he was willin’ to make a deal

Devil went down to Georgia, Charlie Daniels

"Kiss the Dirt (Falling Down the Mountain)" - INXS

 

Playing in the dirt
We find the seeds of doubt
Don't water them with your tears
Don't think about all the years
You'd rather be without

An old man turned 98

He won the lottery and died the next day

It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay

It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late

And isn’t it ironic….Don’t you think

Ironic, Alanis Morissette

Honored Social Butterfly

It’s close to midnight

Something evil’s lurking in the dark

Lonely days are gone, I’m a-goin’ home

My baby, just wrote me a letter

You and I travel to the beat of a different drum

Oh, can’t you tell by the way I run
Every time you make eyes at me? Whoa

Different drum, Stone Poneys

Social Butterfly

There's another world inside of me that you may never see
There's secrets in this life that I can't hide
Somewhere in this darkness there's a light that I can't find
Well maybe it's too far away, yeah
Or maybe I'm just blind
So hold me when I'm here, right me when I'm wrong
Hold me when I'm scared and love me when I'm gone
Everything I am and everything in me
Wants to be the one you wanted me to be

 

"When I'm Gone" - 3 Doors Down

 

The song wasn't about war, it was about being away from anyone you love for whatever reason, but they dedicated to all the men and women serving in the United States military. It was at the time of the Iraq war.

Video filmed on USS George Washington where they performed for them.

Nobody gonna take my car

I’m gonna race it to the ground 

Nobody gonna beat my car

It’s gonna break the speed of sound 

Ooh, it’s a killing machine

It’s got everything 

Like a driving power

Big fat tires and everything

Here I stand, head in hand

Turn my face to the wall

If she’s gone I can’t go on

Feeling two foot small

You know the day destroys the night 

Night divides the day 

Tried to run

Tried to hide …

Got a call from an old friend

We used to be real close

Said he couldn’t go on the American way

Closed the shop, sold a house, bought a

ticket to the west coast

Now he gives them a stand-up routine in LA

"Sunday Will Never Be The Same" - Spanky & Our Gang

 

"I remember Sunday morning
I would meet him at the park
We'd walk together hand in hand
Till it was almost dark
Now I wake up Sunday morning
Walk across the way to find
Nobody waiting for me
Sunday's just another day"
