All That I Can Say

Lord I’m tired
So tired from walking
And Lord I’m so alone
And Lord the dark
Is creeping in
Creeping up
To swallow me
I think I’ll stop
Rest here a while

And didn’t You see me cry’n?
And didn’t You hear me call Your name?
Wasn’t it You I gave my heart to?
I wish You’d remember
Where you sat it down

Chorus:
And this is all that I can say right now
And this is all that I can give

Bridge:
I didn’t notice You were standing here
I didn’t know that
That was You holding me
I didn’t notice You were cry’n too
I didn’t know that
That was You washing my feet

take me away with you, my love

Silver Moons and paper chains,
Faded maps and shiny things.
You’re my favorite one-man show.
A million different ways to go.

Will you fly me away?
Take me away with you,

My love.

Painted scenes, I’m up all night.
Slaying monsters, flying kites.
Speak to me in foreign tongues.
Share your secrets one by one.

Will you fly me away?
Take me away with you,
My love.

Now I cant think what life was like
Before I had you by my side.
Cant say what I’d do without you,
Knowing what its like to have you.

Hidden walk ways back in time.
Endless stories, lovers cry.
In my mind I’ve been set free.
Will you take this Journey
You and Me?

Will you Fly me away?
Take me away with you,
My love.

Fly me away with you,
My Love.

Take me away with you,
My Love.

Thank you, Pandora

This is the gem Pandora is playing for me right now:

Merry Christmas from the Family
by Robert Earle Keen

Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk at our Christmas party
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn’t know what to think of him until he sang
Felis Navidad, Felis Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins from his second wife Mary Nell
Of course he brought his new wife Kay
Who talks all about AA
Chain smoking while the stereo plays Noel, Noel
The First Noel

Carve the Turkey
Turn the ball game on
It’s margaritas when the eggnog’s gone
Send somebody to the Quickpak Store
We need some ice and an extension chord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rites
A box of Pampers, Marlboro Lights
Halelluja everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Fred and Rita drove from Harlingen
I can’t remember how I’m kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motor home in
They blew our Christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited out on our front lawn
He threw the breaker and the lights came on
And we sang Silent Night, Silent Night, Oh Holy Night

Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
It’s Bloody Mary’s
Cause We All Want One!
Send somebody to the Stop ‘N Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Diet Sprites
A box of Midols, some Salem Lights
Halelluja, everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the Family

Felis Navidad!

Swept Away: The Avett Brothers

This might be my new favorite song. It's been stuck in my head for a week
and I just can't get enough of it!!

Also, one of my bff's just got engaged yesterday(ish) and I am
soooo excited for them. Yay love.


Well you set my life a whirling
Darlin when you're twirling, on the floor
And who cares about tomorrow
What more is tomorrow, but another day

Well you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away

I see the end of the rainbow
But what more is a rainbow than colors out of reach
If you come down to my window
And I climb out my window then we'll get out of reach

And you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away

You said with such honest feelings
But what'd you really mean when you said that I'm your man
And how my darling can it be
That you have never seen me, and you never will again

Chorus

Life is ever changing
But I will always have a constant and comfort in your love
With your heart my soul is found
And as we dance I know that heaven can be found

Well you set my life a whirling
Darlin when you're twirling on the floor
And who cares about tomorrow
What more is tomorrow than another day

And you swept me away
Yeah you swept me away

Here's a crappy video of them performing the song:


Jim Cork Burning

Bird Man

Dreamers of the golden dream

Sailing on forbidden seas
Words are so uninteresting
Don’t kiss me; it will trigger things
The conversations we replay
To catch the hints in what we say
The houses we find ourselves in
The games that end when we begin to live
I swear I’m getting out of here
Oh someone drag me out of here
Servant to the matriarch
Sleeping in a burning car
Lovers of the lovable
Respond to the incredible
Blood is thick with medicine
And I am chasing smoke again
Humming some new mystery
Alive inside the history of us
I swear I’m getting out of here
Oh someone drag me out of here
Create in me a grateful heart
Forge it out of twine and tar
Take the dark unusable
And make it something beautiful
And make me something beautiful
And make me something beautiful
And make me something beautiful
And make me something beautiful
A song by Derek Walker. Listen to it on Sky Fidelity.
