Snippets and Coffee

It’s a quiet night around here and I am thoroughly enjoying the peace. I like times like these they’re good for reflection and enjoying some music, maybe drinking some coffee. Here are some snippets of what have been traveling through my mind. It’s not all quiet and while it may seem that some songs may not mix with others… It makes sense in my head.

“And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death”

  • Pink Floyd “Time”

“The hotel bar hangover whiskey’s gone dry
The barkeeper’s wig’s crooked
And she’s giving me the eye
I might have said yeah
But I laughed so hard I think I died”

  • Bon Jovi “Bed of Roses”

“Baby this town rips the bones from your back
Its a death trap, it’s a suicide rap”

  • Bruce Springsteen “Born to Run”

“The steel bars between me and a promise
Suddenly bend with ease
The closer I’m bound in love to you
The closer I am to free”

  • Indigo Girls “Power of Two”

“But if you can look in my eyes
And tell me we’ll be alright
If you promise never to leave

You just might make me believe”

  • Sugarland “Just Might (Make Me Believe)”

“I’ve had to run
I’ve had to crawl
Been rich as a king
Had nothing at all
Still raising hell
And tearing down walls
I know where I stand
I’m learning to fall.”

  • Lowen & Navarro “Learning to Fall”

Man dreams one day to fly
A man takes a rocket ship into the skies
He lives on starlets dying in the night
And follows in the trail, the scatter of light”

  • U2 “In a Little While”

I’m going to find myself a girl
Who can show me what laughter means
And we’ll fill in the missing colors
In each other’s paint-by-number dreams
And then we’ll put out dark glasses on
And we’ll make love until our strength is gone
And when the morning light comes streaming in
We’ll get up and do it again”

  • Jackson Browne “The Pretender”

“I saw my life this morning
Lying at the bottom of a drawer
All this stuff I’m saving
God knows what this junk is for
And whatever I believed in
This is all I have to show
What the hell were all reasons
For holding on for such dear life
Here’s where I let go”

  • Mary Chapin Carpenter “Almost Home”
