Musical Monday: Jar of Hearts

No I can’t take one more step towards you
Cause all that’s waiting is regret
And don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore?
You lost the love I loved the most

I learned to live, half-alive
And now you want me one more time

(Chorus)
And who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart

You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?

I hear you’re asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

I’ve learned to live, half-alive
Now you want me one more time

Who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart

You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?

Dear, it took so long
Just to feel alright
Remember how to put back
The light in my eyes

I wish I had missed
The first time that we kissed
‘Cause you broke all your promises
And now you’re back you don’t get to get me back

And Who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart

You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Don’t come back at all

And who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart

You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don’t come back for me
Don’t come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

Musical Monday: Love the One You’re With

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HH3ruuml-R4

If you’re down and confused
And you don’t remember who you’re talking to
Concentration slips away
Because your baby is so far away

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

Don’t be angry, don’t be sad
Don’t sit crying over good times you’ve had
Well there’s a girl sitting right next to you
And she’s just waiting for something to do

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

Oh yea oh yea, yea
Lord, love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
Why don’t you love?

Turn your heartache right into joy
She’s a girl and you’re a boy
Did you get it together and make it nice?
When you ain’t gonna need anymore advice

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
Sometimes you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, love the one you’re with
You gotta love, love

Musical Monday: It’s Not Christmas Without You

 

 

Carolers singing, sleigh bells are ringing
It’s that time of year
Everyone’s toasting, chestnuts are roasting
Christmas time is near
Something’s missing and I’m wishing
Wishing that you knew
How much it would mean to spend
This Christmas time with you

So if you feel it coming
On this special day
Just trust your heart
Don’t let your head get in the way

Cause it’s Christmas
And the start of something new
But it’s Christmas
And I hope you will feel it too
Candy canes and mistletoe
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
But all of it means nothing
Without you
Without you

Just for a minute, you get a feeling.
Look up in the sky.
Santa’s here, so get in the spirit.
Just give it a try.
Children beaming and I’m dreaming
Hoping that it’s true.
Cause it would mean so much to spend this
Christmas time with you!

So if you feel it coming
On this special day
Just trust your heart
Cause I can’t wait to hear you say

That it’s Christmas
And the start of something new
Well it’s Christmas
And I hope you will feel it too
Everyone together sings
Silver Bells and golden rings
But all of it means nothing
Without you
It’s not Christmas
Without you
It’s not Christmas
Without you
It’s not Christmas
Without you
It’s not Christmas…
Without you

Musical Monday: Near to You (Fine Frenzy)

He and I, it’s somethin’ beautiful
But so dysfunctional, it couldn’t last
Loved him so but I let him go
Cause I knew he’d never love me back

Such pain as this
Shouldn’t have to be experienced
I’m still reeling from the loss
Still a little bit delirious, yeah

Near to you, I am healin’
But it is takin’ so long
Cause though he’s gone and you are wonderful
It’s hard to move on
Yeah, I’m better near to you

Well, you and I, it’s somethin’ different
And I’m enjoyin’ it as cautiously
I’m battle scarred, I am workin’ oh so hard
To get back to who I used to be

He’s disappearin’
Fadin’ steadily
When I’m so close to bein’ yours
Won’t you stay with me, please?

Cause near to you, I am healin’
But it is takin’ so long
Cause though he’s gone and you are wonderful
It’s hard to move on
Yet I’m better near to you
Yeah, I’m better near to you

I only know that I am better where you are
I only know that I am better where you are
I only know that I belong where you are

Near to you, I am healin’
But its takin’ so long
Though he’s gone and you are wonderful
It’s hard to move on

Near to you, I am healin’
But its takin’ so long
Cause though he’s gone and you are wonderful
It’s hard to move on
Yeah, I’m better near to you
Yeah, I’m better near to you

Musical Monday: Please Come Home for Christmas (Aaron Neville)

I’ve made no secret that I want to spend Christmas with you.  I know I won’t.  But I still wish upon a star every night that you will choose to be with me by Christmas.

Please Come Home For Christmas Lyrics

“Please Come Home For Christmas” was released on 1/8/2007. It was written by GENE C REDD, CHARLES BROWN.

Bells will be ringing the glad, glad news
Oh, what a Christmas to have the blues
My baby’s gone, I have no friends
To wish me greetings, ooh, once again

Choirs will be singing “Silent night”
Christmas carols by candlelight
Please, come home for Christmas
Please ,come home for Christmas
If not for Christmas, by New Year’s night

Friends and relations send salutations
Sure as the stars shine above
This is Christmas, yes, Christmas, my dear
The time of year to be with the one you love

Oh, won’t you tell me, you’ll never more roam?
Christmas and New Year’s, will find you home
There’ll be no more sorrow, no grief and pain
Then I’ll be happy, happy once again
Ooh, no more sorrow, no grief and pain
‘Cause I’ll be happy, Christmas blues once again

Musical Monday: Don’t Cry Out Loud (Melissa Manchester)

This song just came to me today.  I used to love this song when I was in high school.  It says a lot about me and the way life was growing up.  I’m not so much that way today.  I’m more an open book — especially with you.

Don’t Cry Out Loud Lyrics

Baby cried the day the circus came to town
Cause she didn’t wan’t parades just passing by her
So she painted on a smile and took up with some clown
While she danced without a net upon the wire
I know a lot about her, cause you’ll see
Baby is an awful lot like me
CHORUS
Don’t cry out loud
Just keep it inside
Learn how to hide your feelings
Fly high and proud
And if you should fall
Remember you almost had it all
Baby saw that when they pulled the big top down
They left behind her dreams among the litter
And the different kind of love she thought she’d found
There was nothing left but sawdust and some glitter
But baby can’t be broken cause you see
She had the finest teacher, that was me
I told her
CHORUS
REPEAT CHORUS

Musical Monday: The Scientist (Coldplay)

Because you are a scientist.  And because I wish we could go back to the start.  My heart is with you.  Always.

 

Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start
Running in circles, chasing up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Don’t speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would so hard
I’m going back to the start

Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh

Musical Monday: Destiny

Destiny (Franklin McKay)

This is another song on the playlist of music on my phone that expresses how I feel about you.

“Destiny”

Here I go again
Tangled up in memories
Can’t remember when
You weren’t here beside me
Without you
I won’t make it alone
Without you
Don’t wanna live
Don’t wanna try
By myself
Don’t wanna laugh
Don’t wanna cry
With no one else
I hope in time that you will see
All roads lead back to you and me
You’re my destiny
Skid around the bend
Crash into reality
Can’t we just be friends?
The last words that you said to me
Without you
I won’t make it alone
Without you
Don’t wanna live
Don’t wanna try
By myself
Don’t wanna laugh
Don’t wanna cry
With no one else
I hope in time that you will see
All roads lead back to you and me
You’re my destiny
