According to Goo Goo Dolls lead singer Johnny Rzeznik, this song is about a long-ago love, that was separated by time, and then it returns. I caught you burnin’ photographs Like that could save you from your past History is like gravity It holds you down away from me You and me, we’ve both got sins And I don’t care about where you’ve been Don’t be sad and don’t explain This is where we start again Start again Come to me my sweetest friend Can you feel my heart again I’ll take you back where you belong And this will … Continue reading (90) Come To Me Playlist Fav
One of those songs that might speak differently to each of us…. When the days are cold And the cards all fold And the saints we see Are all made of gold When your dreams all fail And the ones we hail Are the worst of all And the blood’s run stale I wanna hide the truth I wanna shelter you But with the beast inside There’s nowhere we can hide No matter what we breed We still are made of greed This is my kingdom come This is my kingdom come When you feel my heat Look into my … Continue reading (83) Demons Playlist Fav
A Joni Mitchell cover done well – I sing along with James (Wolpert), The Voice Season 5, in my car…a lot. Oh I am a lonely painter I live in a box of paints I’m frightened by the devil And I’m drawn to those ones that ain’t 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 You taste so bitter And so sweet oh I could … Continue reading (76) A Case of You Playlist Fav
Know that not all these versions are in my favorites playlist (I did get a bit carried away this week) – wanna guess which one? And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share No one dare Disturb the sound of silence Disturbed and Myles Kennedy: yup! Nouela – a whole lot of tears from a whole lot of folks…good cover Passenger – a creative cover rendition from a guy with a creative voice Dance to the sounds of a haunting men’s … Continue reading (46) Sounds of Silence Favs (7)
Keane’s Tom Chaplin (lead singer) has one of those voices…and I think I understand his lyrics (or at least have my own wishful(?)…hopeful(?)…optimistic(?) interpretation)…. THIS IS THE LAST TIME This is the last time That I will say these words I remember the first time The first of many lies Sweep it into the corner Or hide it under the bed Say these things they go away But they never do Something I wasn’t sure of But I was in the middle of Something I forget now But I’ve seen too little of The last time You fall on me … Continue reading (39) Last Time Playlist Fav (6)
Oh my this song…makes me breathe deep Run – Sugarland (Jennifer Nettles is a Favs favorite of mine) and Matt Nathanson You pull me in close And buckle my knees I shake and I shiver just to feel you breathe You trace my lines (You trace your lines) Stirring my soul Shoot sparks at the heart of the world and I watch it explode? (I watch you yeah I watch you) You turn, turn, turn, turning me on Like a slow fire burn I Know that it’s wrong Still I run, run, run, run right into you Yeah, I run, … Continue reading (31) Run Playlist Fav
” I am actually good, can’t help it if we’re tilted”… Pardon me for posting three versions of the same song – each good by itself. I just didn’t know which one to share. Love this artist; love her knee swings at the 2:11 marker of song (English version – 1st one); love the live version (3rd one). Unless you know French, to comprehend the lyrics leave the 2nd one to listen to till last. I betting that if this song doesn’t make you get up and dance and sing a couple of catchy phrases, you will at least be tapping your … Continue reading The Tilted x 3 Daily Dance(s)
Guys, this is the kind of stuff where you either re-introduce yourself to all the single malts in the house, or you go to church.
If you recall, a couple weeks ago I did a quick post on Erma Bombeck. It was about how, after watching a PBS program of her life, it spoke in such a way as for me to better understand the attraction my mom had for the lady. So here I sit again tonight, moved to sniffles and teared eyes (damn you PBS) watching yet another favorite of mom’s, Chet Atkins, and coming to very similar conclusions with this man as I did with Erma.
Something is going on here gang and I’m not sure how to go about wrapping my arms around it. I could use some help, but if I’m drowning here, don’t be tossing me rocks….
After finally getting a handle on a sizeable backlog of emails, I found this forwarded link from OFSIL Bec that struck a cord (no pun intended) with me…this day…at this time. Thanks Bec! I can visualize FS wanting to do something like this (maybe a few years ago before the college years passed him by) – being at either end of the camera…or both. You can still go out and do this Beeba – I’ll stand by ya! Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me Continue reading Stand by me
