I open my hands up to see what I've got
My days slip like coins into a slot they are gone
And the shadows lie long

I've been banking on a broken machine, left unattended like most of my dreams
Rusty components of an unmarked song
We've been staring down the brilliant dream, the sun burns our eyes
We've been fighting for the love of our lives

All around us things come apart, broken pieces and broken hearts
Fix me, oil me, match me with the next best thing

Who can blueprint a plan to make love stay sturdy and weatherproof, ushering in a new revolution
At the drawing board the hopeful ones still try

How can we help it when we're fighting for the love of our lives

Perfect Day

It's such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on.

The girl in the dress cried the whole way home.
I should have known."

Lazy Days

It's gonna be another flip flop summer
Kick off your shoes and call up your lover
Say, "Hey baby, the winter is over
Let's head South awhile"
Kenny Chesney

Every day's a new day"

If I knew then what I know now
I would have told myself don't worry any longer it's OK
'cause a face without freckles is like a sky without stars
Why waste a second not loving who you are
Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable,
They show your personality inside your heart
Reflecting who you are
- Natasha Bedingfield

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not...

"I build myself up and fly around in circles
Wait then as my heart drops and back begins to tingle
Finally, could this be it?"
Adele - Chasing Pavements

Shine a Light

A wise man recently told me...
  • Always stay positive because it could be worse
  • The scariest place to be by yourself is in your own head
  • There is no such thing as a coincidence
  • When something is wrong you don't feel it in your heart or your head, you feel it in your gut
  • Life is too short to worry...waste...complain...hold a grudge

I drive a three county highway
and every one of them town's got a firework show.
It's 4th of July and I'm just now getting home,
on the horizon, I can see 'em all unfold.
