When I first saw You I already knew
There was something inside of You
Something I thought that I would never find
Angel of mine

I look at You lookin' at me
Now I know why they say
the best things are free
I'm gonna love You boy, You are so fine
Angel of Mine


How You changed my world, You'll never know
I'm different now, You helped me grow
You came into my life sent from Above
When I lost all hope you showed me Love
I'm checkin' for Ya, boy You're right on time
Angel of Mine

Nothing means more to me than what we share
No one in this whole world can ever compare
Last night the way You moved
is still on my mind
Angel of Mine

What You mean to me You'll never know
Deep inside I need to show
You came into my life sent from Above
When I lost all hope, You showed me Love
I'm checkin' for Ya, boy You're right on time
Angel of Mine

I never knew I could feel these moments
As if they were new,
Every breath that I take,
the Love that we make
I only share it with You, You, You, You, You
When I first saw You I already knew
There was something inside of You
Something I thought that I would never find
Angel of Mine

You came into my life sent from Above
When I lost all hope You showed me Love
I'm checkin' for ya, boy You're right on time
Angel of Mine

How you changed my world You'll never know
I'm different now, You helped me grow

I look at You lookin' at me
Now I know why they say
the best things are free
I'm checkin' for Ya, boy You're right on time
Angel of Mine

Angel of Mine by Monica

When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side. When times get rough
And friends just can't be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When you're down and out,
When you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
I'll take your part.
When darkness comes
And pain is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.


Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

This is a song that's been on my radar for years, I've always adored it, but it's only been recently that I've been able to truly relate to the lyrics.

Difficult to post a snippet since it's all feeling so relevant right now but..

Maybe we'll live and learn
Maybe we'll crash and burn
Maybe you'll stay, maybe you'll leave,
Maybe you'll return
Maybe another fight
Maybe we won't survive
But maybe we'll grow
We never know baby you and I

Say you, say me
Say it for always, that's the way it should be
Say you, say me
Say it together, naturally

I had a dream I had an awesome dream
People in the park playing games in the dark
And what they played was a masquerade
And from behind the walls of doubt a voice was crying out

This song reminds me of how much my husband loves me.

Say, my love, I came to you with best intentions
You laid down and gave to me just what I'm seeking
Love, you drive me to distraction
Hey my love do you believe that we might last a thousand years
Or more if not for this,
Our flesh and blood
It ties you and me right up
Tie me down

Celebrate we will
Because life is short but sweet for certain
We're climbing two by two
To be sure these days continue
These things we cannot change

Hey, my love, you came to me like wine comes to this mouth
Grown tired of water all the time
You quench my heart and you quench my mind

Celebrate we will
Because life is short but
Sweet for certain
We're climbing two by two
To be sure these days continue
The things we cannot
Celebrate, you and me, climbing two by two, to be sure
These days continue, things we cannot change

Oh, my love I came to you
With best intentions
You laid down and gave to me
Just what I'm seeking

Celebrate we will
Because life is short
But sweet for certain
We're climbing two by two
To be sure these days continue
Things we cannot change...
Things we cannot change

Well I got this guitar
And I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back
If you're ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
The door's open but the ride it ain't free
And I know you're lonely
For words that I ain't spoken
But tonight we'll be free
All the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes
Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone
On the wind so Mary climb in
It's town full of losers
And I'm pulling out of here to win

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening?
Does anybody really know?
If it’s the end of our beginning,
A cry
A rush
From one breath
Is all we’re waiting for
Sometimes the one we’re taking
Changes every one before


It's everything you wanted, it's everything you don't
It's one door swinging open and one door swinging closed
Some prayers find an answer
Some prayers never know
We're holding on and letting go

Being away from the one you love is not easy. Since I´m still learning how to express myself poetically, I have not mastered song writing yet... I tend to borrow these to show her what I feel... through song.

"Not Fire Not Ice"
By Ben Harper

There is not a river wide.
Not a mountain high.
And neither sin nor evil.
Could change how I feel inside.

Not all the strength of the ocean.
Not all the heat from the sun, from the sun.
Now, others have tried, I just can't deny.
For me you are the one.

The true love is priceless.
For true love you pay a price.
But there's nothing can keep me from loving you.
Not fire, no not ice.

Like a hero or a champion.
You are the best, you're the best.
Like religion or superstition.
With you I am blessed.

Now the river may grow wider.
The mountain may reach past the sky.
And wether or not you feel the same.
My love shall never die.

The true love you give and take.
The true love is sacrifice.
But there's nothing can keep me from loving you.
Not fire, no not ice.

You're a carousel, you're a wishing well,
And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You're a mystery, you're from outer space,
You're every minute of my everyday.

And I can't believe, uh that I'm your man,
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through,
And you know that's what our love can do.


Every day is a school day.

There is no future
There is no past
Thank God this moment's not the last

There's only us
There's only this
Forget regret or life is yours to miss

No other road
No other way
No day but today

It took a long time, a long time
It came to me when I needed it so bad
A long time, a long time I wasn't waiting
I wasn't down with what I had
Let me start, let me start at the beginning
When I first set eyes on you, I knew that you'd be the one
Be the one that makes me feel like living
You're the one that makes me feel

When you speak, when you sing
I see beauty shining down on everything
Cos your heart is still so pure
You're as precious as the day that you were born
Let me start, let me start at the beginning
When I first set eyes on you
I knew that you'd be the one
Be the one that makes me feel like living
You're the one that makes me feel
You're the one that makes me feel like living
You're the one that makes me feel

The grass is always greener, the sun will always shine
The sky is always clearer, just 'cos you're alive
Just 'cos you're alive, just 'cos you're alive

You're the one that makes me feel
You're the one that makes me feel like living

I thought this was for one line or a paragraph, not a whole song and we had to explain the meaning.

:shrugs:

My boyfriend has mental health issues which has at one point in our relationship seen him stay at a mental health facility for almost nine weeks.

While he was away I discovered alternative artist Emilie Autumn by accident. Emilie openly has said she suffers from bi-polar.

She penned and sang a song called Swallow which is about her suffering of her mental health problems and to some of her teenage fans whom think it's cool she has this disorder. When I hear this song it makes me wonder if this is what my other half goes through mentally when he goes through his episodes.

A few different lines get to me.

You tell me everything's all right
As though it's something you've been through
You think this torment is romantic
Well it's not, except to you

When I sense that my boyfriend isn't in the right frame of mind, I try to calm him down. By trying for him to focus on positives. He lashes out on me verbally, I know it isn't the real him talking it's the disorder talking.

The brighter the light
The darker the shadow
I don't need a minder
I've made up my mind
Go away
I don't need a minder
I've made up my mind
Go away

I have learnt over the years of when he is at his lowest and it takes over, that he pushes me away when I try to console him.


Finally when I know his mental health problem has taken over these lines gets to me.

But can I trust you?
But I don't want to.

There have been times when he has questioned me with a similar question.

I will swallow
If it will help my sea level go down
I'll take a deep, deep breath
But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown


The last one makes me think that perhaps my other half sees me as his anchor for when he goes into his into his moods and if I don't comply to the changes, he takes it out on me. If I don't follow the changes, he thinks he is losing me.
Hence the "But I'll come back to haunt you if I drown."





Axl - Take a look at our piercing menu.

Daria - I don't think that's how you spell "uvula."

Axl - That's not "uvula."

..........there's some things in this old world girl I can't do nothing about.
But I can love you, like I've always done,and when the hard times come a knocking
Hunny you won't ever see me run. I wont leave you when you need a friend,
Can't make the bad days better then they ever been.......but I can love you.

Good Ol' Boys Like Me
Don Williams

When I was a kid Uncle Remus he put me to bed
With a picture of Stonewall Jackson above my head
Then daddy came in to kiss his little man
With gin on his breath and a Bible in his hand
He talked about honor and things I should know
Then he'd stagger a little as he went out the door

CHORUS:
I can still hear the soft Southern winds in the live oak trees
And those Williams boys they still mean a lot to me
Hank and Tennessee
I guess we're all gonna be what we're gonna be
So what do you do with good ole boys like me

Nothing makes a sound in the night like the wind does
But you ain't afraid if you're washed in the blood like I was
The smell of cape jasmine thru the window screen
John R. and the Wolfman kept me company
By the light of the radio by my bed
With Thomas Wolfe whispering in my head

(chorus)

When I was in school I ran with a kid down the street
But I watched him burn himself up on bourbon and speed
But I was smarter than most and I could choose
Learned to talk like the man on the six o'clock news
When I was eighteen, Lord, I hit the road
But it really doesn't matter how far I go

(chorus)

I hurt myself today,
To see if I still feel,
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that's real,

The needle tears a hole,
The old familiar sting,
Try to kill it all away,
But I remember everything,

What have I become,
My sweetest friend,
Everyone I know,
Goes away in the end,

And you could have it all,
My empire of dirt,
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt,

I wear this crown of thorns,
Upon my liars chair,
Full of broken thoughts,
I cannot repair,

Beneath the stains of time,
The feelings disappear,
You are someone else,
I am still right here,

And you could have it all,
My empire of dirt,
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt,

If I could start again,
A million miles away,
I will keep myself,
I would find a way,

Reverend...Reverend
Is this some conspiracy?
Crucified for no sins
An image beneath me
Lost within our plans for life
It all seems so unreal
I'm a man cut in half in this world
Left in my misery...

The reverend he turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes
It's nothing new for him to see
I didn't ask him why
I will remember
The love our souls had
Sworn to make
Now I watch the falling rain
All my mind can see
Now is your (face)

Well I guess
You took my youth
And gave it all away
Like the birth of a
New-found joy
This love will end in rage
And when she died
I couldn't cry
The pride within my soul
You left me incomplete
All alone as the memories now unfold.

Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the
Cemetery gates

Sometimes when I'm alone
I wonder aloud
If you're watching over me
Some place far abound
I must reverse my life
I can't live in the past
Then set my soul free
Belong to me at last

Through all those
Complex years
I thought I was alone
I didn't care to look around
And make this world my own
And when she died
I should've cried and spared myself some pain...
You left me incomplete
All alone as the memories still remain

The way we were
The chance to save my soul
And my concern is now in vain
Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the
Cemetery gates

The way we were
The chance to save my soul

WHEN I'M GONE
by Phil Ochs


There's no place in this world where I'll belong when I'm gone
And I won't know the right from the wrong when I'm gone
You won't find me singing on this song when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

I won't feel the flowing of the time when I'm gone
All the pleasures of love will not be mine when I'm gone
My pen won't pour a lyric line when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

And I won't breath the brandy air when I'm gone
I can't even worry 'bout my cares when I'm gone
Won't be asked to do my share when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

I won't be running from the rain when I'm gone
I can't even suffer from the pain when I'm gone
Can't say who's afraid and who's to blame when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here


I won't see the golden of the sun when I'm gone
All the evenings and the mornings will be one when I'm gone
Can't be singing louder than the guns when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

All my days wont be dances of delight when I'm gone
And the sands will be shifting from my sight when I'm gone
Can't add my name into the fight when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

I won't be laughing at the lies when I'm gone
And I can't question how or when or why when I'm gone
I can't live proud enough to die when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

There's no place in this world where I'll belong when I'm gone
And I won't know the right from the wrong when I'm gone
You won't find me singing on this song when I'm gone
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here

I've got 3 songs that I've been listening to pretty constantly. All the lyrics strike a chord with me so here you go

Falling by Florence and The Machine:
Sometimes I wish for falling,
Wish for the release.
Wish for falling through the air,
To give me some relief.
Because falling's not the problem,
When I'm falling I'm in peace.
It's only when I hit the ground,
It causes all the grief.

Your Arms Feel Like Home by 3 Doors Down:
It don't matter where I lay my head tonight,
Cuz your arms feel like home.


Break In by Halestorm:
You let me fall apart without letting go
Then you pick up the pieces and you make me whole

"Shimmer" by Fuel


She calls me from the cold
Just when I was low, feeling short of stable
And all that she intends
And all she keeps inside, isn't on the label
She says she's ashamed
And can she take me for awhile?
And can I be a friend, we'll forget the past
But maybe I'm not able
And I break at the bend

We're here and now, but will we ever be again
'Cause I have found
All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade
Away again

She dreams a champagne dream
Strawberry surprise, pink linen and white paper
Lavender and cream
Fields of butterflies, reality escapes her
She says that love is for fools who fall behind
And I'm somewhere in between
I never really know
A killer from a savior
'Til I break at the bend

It's too far away for me to hold
It's too far away...
Guess I'll let it go

Always loved the lyrics by Sarah McLachlan, but this one especially I always felt is quite meaningful and strong in the words.

"Dear God" by Sarah McLachlan

Dear God,
Hope you got the letter and
I pray you can make it better down here.
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
But all the people that you made in your image,
See them starving on their feet
'Cause they don't get enough to eat
From God
I can't believe in you.

Dear God,
Sorry to disturb you, but
I feel that I should be heard loud and clear.
We all need a big reduction in the amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image,
See them fighting in the street
'Cause they can't make opinions meet

About God,
I can't believe in you.

Did you make disease, and the diamond blue?
Did you make mankind after we made you?
And the devil too?!

Dear God,
Don't know if you noticed, but...
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book,
Us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look,
And all the people that you made in your image,
Still believing that junk is true
Well I know it ain't, and so do you

Dear God,
I can't believe in...
I don't believe in...

I won't believe in heaven and hell.
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well.
No pearly gates, no thorny crown.
You're always letting us humans down.
The wars you bring, the babes you drown.
Those lost at sea and never found,
And it's the same the whole world 'round.
The hurt I see helps to compound
That Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody's unholy hoax
And if you're up there you'd perceive
That my heart's here upon my sleeve.
If there's one thing I don't believe in.....

It's you.....
Dear God.

Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.
sweeter

He saw the best in me, when everyone else around, could only see the worst in me That line in the song seems to make me realize if no one is in my corner, HE is.

Anything you think is sweet, I'm a little more than that.
