trouble

Music is huge in my house, as I’m sure you know, and these last nine (WTF!) months have been fraught with a not-so-fun mix of various troubles. This song is really good (actually, I wanted to post three off this album) and I’m just feeling it lately…

“I said it was love and I did it for life”

Hope your ears enjoy!

On second glance

From a distance things may appear to be one way, but the closer you get the clearer things become.  We’d all do well to keep that in the forefront of our minds as we travel through our days and interact with folks, in real life and online.  What appears to be, many times is not.  Case in point: Sir and I would not appear to have changed much at all to the casual observer, but we have completely restructured our lives. Reminds me of the tagline of some show on MTV  “You think you know, but you have no idea.”  So true!!!

Some disconcerting events have taken place in the recent past, both in life and online, that I am trying to process and reconcile in my mind and heart.  I’m not really gaining any ground – luckily my Sir is able to provide me with a more analytical approach.  I’ll figure it out, or I won’t, and continue on my path.  For now, this song is stuck in my head and I’d like to stick it in yours share the love – at least it’s not about the fox!!

Happy Sunday from me to you.

Come A Little Closer by Cage the Elephant

Time shakes, found you at the water
At first you were my father, now I love you like a brother
Earthquakes shake the dust behind you
This world at times will blind you
Still I know I’ll see you there

Chorus:
Come a little closer then you’ll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren’t always what they seem to be
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you’ve been seein’
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you’ve been dreaming
Come a little closer then you’ll see

Heartbreaks, the heavy world’s upon your shoulders
Will we burn or we just smolder
So now I know I found you there
Mmm, wanna see if you can change it, change it
Still I know I’ll see you there
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/cage-the-elephant-come-a-little-closer-lyrics.html ]
Chorus:
Come a little closer, then you’ll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren’t always what they seem to be
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you’ve been seein’
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you’ve been dreaming
Come a little closer then you’ll see
Come a little closer then you’ll see

Ten thousand people stand alone now
And in the evening the sun sets,
Tomorrow it will rise
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, by

Chorus:
Come a little closer then you’ll see
Come on, come on, come on
Come a little closer then you’ll see
Come a little closer then you’ll see
Come a little closer then you’ll see
