Shadow Dancing

cry779

Lost and shattered without you here
No words of wisdom for me to hear
Spinning madly out of control
Falling down the rabbit hole

dacerrabbit
On my knees trembling to stand
Searching for your helping hand
Reaching up, but failing to grasp
Pleading with each and every gasp

dancewithme
Bargaining for just a mere glance
Grant me one last song and dance
Intertwine your fingers with mine
Shadow dancing on cloud nine

Feeling the calmness of your skin
For a moment I’m whole once again

Drive Me Home

Spinning my wheels but going nowhere

Exhausted feeling broken beyond repair

Carrying burdens from years ago

Overpaying debts I didn’t owe

Trying to ease guilt I shouldn’t feel

Pleading for redemption to help me heal

Calibrate – Balance – Rectify me

Feeling brand new by turning the key

Well this place is old
It feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn’t turn
Well it smells of cheap wine, cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes I think I’d like to watch it burn
I’m so alone and I feel just like somebody else
Man, I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the same
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin’ dreams
I think of death, it must be killin’ me

Hey, hey hey come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There’s got to be something better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

-The Wallflowers (partial lyrics)

Wondering who will take my place

 A strong mind with an angel’s grace 

Praying you’ll be tender and obey 

I’m by your side every step of the way 

Carry my wisdom my convictions deep inside 

My voice constant when you need a guide 

I can save you if you need me to 

My sweet boys, I would never leave you


Mom

Two things I know are true.

1. I love my boys.

2. If you buy a sports car…buy red and a stick shift.

“Fast Car”

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere
Any place is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
Me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
Won’t have to drive too far
Just ‘cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

See my old man’s got a problem
He live with the bottle that’s the way it is
He says his body’s too old for working
His body’s too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody’s got to take care of him
So I quit school and that’s what I did

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
We gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way

So remember when we were driving driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
We go cruising, entertain ourselves
You still ain’t got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You’ll find work and I’ll get promoted
We’ll move out of the shelter
Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

So remember when we were driving driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I’d always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me find it
I got no plans I ain’t going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

So remember when we were driving driving in your car
Speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
Is it fast enough so you can fly away?
You gotta make a decision
Leave tonight or live and die this way
