I hope everyone had a nice and filling Thanksgiving. Today is Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. You would think that I would choose a song that goes with the season but I have not.

This week I decided to select Angels on the Moon by Thriving Ivory. This was our first holiday without my father and he has been on my mind heavily.  He knew he was dying even though many tried to convince him otherwise. I recall a day last year prior to his diagnosis when I think he had an inner feeling that his time was near. It was a sunny summer day, beautiful white fluffy clouds filled the sky, birds sang a happy melody and sadness filled his eyes. “It’s good to be alive,” he said. At that moment I could feel that he felt something and soon after the diagnosis came.

Hold on to those that you love, cherish them, kiss them, hug them, don’t take them for granted because one day life will be a little less full without them in it.

 We all have lost someone that meant something to us, it’s nice to think of them as an angel on the moon.

 

Happy Friday!

 

 

 

 

 

Do you dream, that the world will know your name

So tell me your name
Do you care, about all the little things or anything at all?
I wanna feel, all the chemicals inside I wanna feel
I wanna sunburn, just to know that I’m alive
To know I’m alive

Don’t tell me if I’m dying, cause I don’t wanna know
If I can’t see the sun, maybe I should go
Don’t wake me cause I’m dreaming, of angels on the moon
Where everyone you know, never leaves too soon

Do you believe, in the day that you were born tell me do you believe
And Do you know, that everydays the first of the rest of your life

Don’t tell me if I’m dying, cause I don’t wanna know
If I can’t see the sun, maybe I should go
Don’t wake me cause I’m dreaming, of angels on the moon
Where everyone you know, never leaves too soon

This is to one last day in the shadows
And to know a brother’s love

This is to New York City angels
And the rivers of our blood
This is to all of us, to all of us

So don’t tell me if I’m dying, cause I don’t wanna know
If I can’t see the sun, maybe I should go
Don’t wake me cause I’m dreaming, of angels on the moon
Where everyone you know, never leaves too soon

And you can tell me all your thoughts about the stars that fill the moon lit skies
Show me where you run to when no one’s left to take your side
Don’t tell me where the road ends, cause I just don’t wanna know
No I don’t wanna know

Don’t tell me if I’m dying
Don’t tell me if I’m dying
Don’t tell me if I’m dying

 

 

Today is Halloween and the spirits are out in full swing.

What better song to play today than Thriller by Michael Jackson, the video is still great to watch on Halloween.

 

Stay Safe tonight.

 

Me and My Indians will be trick or treating.

What song are you listening to this Halloween?

I love a great love song. Sometimes in life, you meet that great love that changes your life. Sometimes even the greatest of loves cannot be together. History is filled with characters that deeply loved each other but couldn’t be together. History is also filled with great loves that were able to stay together for a lifetime.
It’s hard to describe LOVE but once you experience it you never forget it!

This week’s Friday Song is Love Remains the Same by Gavin Rossdale. I love his voice, he’s easy on the eyes and he appears to be a great hubby and daddy!

My favorite lyric in the song is (Make me want to run until I find you).

Happy Friday!

What are you listening to this week?

Lyrics
A thousand times I’ve seen you standing
Gravity like a lunar landing
You make me want to run till I find you
I shut the world away from here
I drift to you, you’re all I hear
As everything we know fades to black

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You’re pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

I find a place where we escape
Take you with me for the space
The city buzz sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through seven bars
I have to find just where you are
The faces seem to blur
They’re all the same

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You’re pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same

So much more to say
So much to be done
Don’t you trick me out
We shall overcome
It’s all left still to play

We – should have the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we’re over here

Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
Too much time too long defending
You and I are done pretending

I never thought that I
Had anymore to give
You’re pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change

I, oh I,
I wish this could last forever
I, oh I,
As if we could last forever

Love remains the same
Love remains the same

For some, confidence is hard to achieve. You let other people’s perceptions of you interfere with who you really are. Today is the day to look within and embrace your inner self. You may be different from others and that is okay. Take that difference and fly with it. You don’t have to be like anyone else to fit in. If someone makes you feel out of place because you are different, chances are they are intimidated by the confidence they see but you don’t. Find your light turn it on and never apologize for being the person you were born to be, by doing this you will find confidence. Don’t Back Down!

You have a dream but you are afraid that others won’t accept or believe in it. The only person that needs to believe in your dream is yourself. When one door closes, search for another one that opens. Don’t Back Down!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Tom Petty/I WON’T BACK DOWN LYRICS

Well I wont back down, no I wont back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I wont back down

Gonna stand my ground, wont be turned around
And Ill keep this world from draggin me down
Gonna stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby, there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down.

Well I know whats right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin me around
But Ill stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down
No, I wont back down

We are spending way too much money a week on gas.  My checking account is quickly depleting because of trips to the gas station. Many days, I look down at the gas gauge and realize -“I’m running on empty.”

Life as a mother of four is crazy and filled with to do lists. I am a headless chicken trying to get everything done by day’s end. I try to squeeze a few minutes here and there for things I like to do. By nightfall, I sit back and say to myself, “I’m running on empty.”

The economy is in distress and the future is unclear, we are- running on empty.

 

Can you guess what song I chose for this week?

Running on Empty by Jackson Browne.

I loved this song the moment I heard it and I still turn it up every time it comes on.

What songs have you singing along?

Feel free to suggest songs for future Friday’s.

Happy Friday!

 

 

RUNNING ON EMPTY
(by Jackson Browne)

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one-o-one
I don’t know where I’m running now, I’m just running on

Running on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behind

Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own
I don’t know when that road turned onto the road I’m on

Running on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behind

Everyone I know, everywhere I go
People need some reason to believe
I don’t know about anyone but me
If it takes all night, that’ll be all right
If I can get you to smile before I leave

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don’t know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behind

Honey you really tempt me
You know the way you look so kind
I’d love to stick around but I’m running behind
You know I don’t even know what I’m hoping to find
Running into the sun but I’m running behind

 

 

Last Friday was sunny, warm and inviting. This Friday is gloomy and cool. Immediately I could feel the blues setting in. Last week I felt like I could conquer the world but today I felt like I wanted to hide from the world. I searched for depressing songs to suit my mood. I was prepared to sulk when I came across a song that lifted my mood. This Little Light of Mine is exactly what I needed. Bruce Springsteen’s version is upbeat and knocked the blues out of me. When the world outside is gloomy and dark, find your light and let it shine.

Happy Friday!

Today started off great, I won a terrific prize at the Writer Mama’s giveaway, the sky is blue, the air is cool and the birds are singing, it’s a beautiful day.

Days like these make me feel like I can conquer the world and make a difference. Like Bono says, I know I am not a hopeless case.

Enjoy today. If you can’t find the sun, turn on extra lights to brighten up your day.

Happy Friday

What songs are you listening to this week?
It’s a Beautiful Day Lyrics

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There’s no room
No space to rent in this town

You’re out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you’re not moving anywhere

You thought you’d found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It’s a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road
But you’ve got no destination
You’re in the mud
In the maze of her imagination

You love this town
Even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over
And it’s been all over you

It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
It’s a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now
Don’t need it now
Was a beautiful day

Neil Young is a well-known legend and I fell in love with his song Unknown Legend the very first time I heard it. His voice is not like any other and can soothe a crying baby to sleep.  Listening to his music takes me to that far-away place called yesterday; it is the only way to get back.

What are you listening to today?

The purpose of Friday’s Song is to encourage others to comment on the song choice and put up a Friday Song of their own on their blog.

Happy Friday!

Unknown Legend lyrics

She used to work in a diner
Never saw a woman look finer
I used to order just to watch
her float across the floor
She grew up in a small town
Never put her roots down
Daddy always kept movin’,
so she did too.

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin’ in the wind
She’s been runnin’ half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin’ with
the very air she breathes
The air she breathes.

You know it ain’t easy
You got to hold on
She was an unknown legend
in her time
Now she’s dressin’ two kids
Lookin’ for a magic kiss
She gets the far-away look
in her eyes.

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin’ in the wind
She’s been runnin’ half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin’ with the very
air she breathes
The air she breathes.

Are you in love? Were you ever in love? Do you want to fall in love? What do you think about love?

I personally love love. Love is sun on a cloudy day and a blanket on a cold night. I like being in love, seeing people fall in love and feeling loved.

I love David Gray and thought this week I would choose one of his songs. The video is great and really captures love at its best.

Be Mine
David Gray

From the very first moment I saw you
That’s when I knew
All the dreams I held in my heart
Had suddenly come true
Knock me over, stone-cold sober
Not a think I could say or do
‘Cos baby when I’m walking with you now
My eyes are so wide
Like you reached right into my head
And turned on the light inside
Turned an old light on
Inside my mind, hey

Come on baby it’s all right
Sunday, Monday, day or night
Whether blue or white it’s plain to see
Be mine! Be mine!
That rainy, shiny, night or day
What’s the difference anyway
Honey till your heart belongs to me?

If I had some influence girl
With the powers that be
I’d have them fire that arrow at you
Like they fired it right at me
Maybe when your heart and soul are burning you might see
That everytime I’m talking with you
It’s always over too soon?
That everyday feels so incomplete
‘Till you walk into the room?
Say the word now girl
I’ll jump that moon, hey

Come on baby it’s ok
Rainy, shiny, night or day
There’s nothing in the way now
Don’t you see?
Be mine! Be mine!

Winter, Summer, day or night
Centigrade of Fahrenheit
Baby till your heart belongs to me
Be mine! Be mine!

Thursday, Friday, short or long
When you got a love so strong
How can it be wrong now? Mercy me!
Be mine! Be mine!

Jumpin Jesus, holy cow!
What’s the difference anyhow
Baby till your heart belongs to meeee?

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay with me?
Be mine! Be mine!

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay with me?
Be mine! Be mine!

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay with me?
Be mine! Be mine!

My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, I’m always on fire,
My body’s on fire, Don’t you wanna stay…

My mother’s favorite singer has always been Bette Midler and her favorite song The Rose.

This song has been playing in my mind for whatever reason the last few days and I wanted to hear it so I chose it for this week’s song.

My mother lost her best friend (my father) and is still trying to come to terms with that as we all are. She had a great love that some people will never have the opportunity to experience. He was the perfect rose that she stumbled upon. His seed has been planted, hopefully more roses will bloom for a long time to come.

 

Happy Friday. What are you listening to this week?

 

 

The rose

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed

Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance
Its the one who wont be taken, the one who cant seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember that in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed, that with the suns love in the spring becomes the rose
