Daphne Loves Derby

“Sundays”
Please
Tell me how you lift these heavy bricks
And how you built this path for me to walk on
You carve yourself in stones
With the strength of all convinced
But I know your skin
Is still as thin as mine

What does it take to believe
In all the things you believe?
And maybe I need to listen more carefully

I finally know how you stand
against the worst there is

You enjoy coffee and Debussy
I can’t believe the calmness in your bones
After everything
And when she dreams
She sees herself in her Sunday dress
Humming simple melodies
She’s known since she was only three

What does it take to believe
In all the things you believe
And maybe I need to listen more carefully

I finally know how you stand
against the worst there is
I finally found,
The strength you’ve tried to tell me about

Oh, even when the sky is crashing down
You, You locked your knees and stood up straight
You are the strength inside my veins
Oh, I want to feel the strength you know

What does it take to believe
In all the things you believe?
Maybe I need to listen more carefully

Check them out on My Space. Listen to this song. The lyrics are beautiful. For any Oklahomanites, free show at the OU campus on Monday night! I am so there :) Music has had a profound effect on my life. There are a lot of songs out there that I love because they have a great beat but a song with powerful lyrics will always mean so much more to me. If you want to hear some moving lyrics, listen to Latterman. Their music has helped me relax and enjoy life as it comes. Be happy and love each other. There is a lot of hate in this world, more than I can even believe sometimes. But I love the people who let me love them and forget the people who don’t. Friendships come and go constantly throughout our lives, but if you love someone and put all that you can into it, that is what really matters. Be true to yourself first and then you can be your best person to the people who really matter in your life. Love life and love each other. Our time on this planet is MUCH shorter than it seems.

A dedication to my love

Although it is sad that the dude wrote this for his wife and then later got divorced, I dedicate this song to my lovely Gene because I know we wont ever get divorced. I know that the trip is rough but the bumps are what make us all stronger in the end. And a love like ours could never be broken. 

Cadillac Blindside –  Angel Superior

it’s forever now
no turning back point for us
from now on you’re all i need by my side
a brief fairy-tale, storybook-like ending
the stars have never shined like tonight

so i say: take my hand
hold on tight the trip is rough
but we’ll make it safe, yeah
since you kept me up talkin for hours
dried me off from the morning showers yeah
life’s always better than, it’s ever been
from the time we walked down to the fountain
even when we’re mad and shouting yeah
life’s always better than, it’s ever been

i look at your face
and in your eyes i see it
my whole futures riding on your smile
i won’t let you down
and i’ll be there if you fall
this is how our movie ends for now

so i say: take my hand
hold on tight the trip is rough
but we’ll make it safe, yeah
since you kept me up talkin for hours
dried me off from the morning showers, yeah
life’s always better than, it’s ever been
from the time we walked down to the fountain
even when we’re mad and shouting yeah
life’s always better than, it’s ever been.

Cold, Dark and Crazy

I can’t really think of anything to write or worth writing. I read about 4 different blogs/journals tonight that involved someone dying. The sadness is rediculous. Here are some lyrics to one of my all-time favorite songs.

Straightjacket Weather – Cadillac Blindside

i thought you would be
insane at twenty-three
now, i’m that weirdo screaming on the train

you’re setting fires inside my head
i’d like to believe you
it’s not arson
maybe just a warm goodbye for me
it’s cold inside my heart
cold, dark, and crazy
sweater weather for you
and a straightjacket for me

head down, hands tied
dreaming only of you
who can rescue me from this padded room
if i got my mouth on some cyanide
or a shotgun
maybe i’d survive

head down, hands tied
dreaming only of you
who can rescue me from this padded room
and our get-away car is parked outside
i’ll ride shotgun, baby, you can drive.

We have to work to keep it together

New layout again! Heeh. I can’t stop myself. I don’t even really care for this one that much either but I definitely like it better than the other one :) I think Gene and I are going to go on a short walk in a little bit. I don’t feel that wonderful but I do feel like I need a nice walk outside. Right now it is only 86° outside and I hate to not be outside enjoying it. I think the last of our 100° weather is over for the year and I can’t even begin to express how happy I am for that! It just got way too hot there for a while. The kind of hot where you walk outside and feel like you are being smothered. Yuck!

Anyway.. gonna get these dogs together and get on our walk. I’m going to try my BEST to be asleep by 12 tonight. It seems every night it is well after midnight and I think if I get a little more sleep for once it will help keep me from getting that ill. So instead of writing anymore, I’ll post some lyrics that mean something to me.

This Project is StagnantLatterman

we know things lose their shine over time
so the things that you love you say wont feel the same way
so move out
move on
fall deep in love with your meaning
and if we haven’t found it
i hope we can all start looking

so look out
look up
even though the skies are cloudy gray
spend every new day
look deep and fall in love again

cause things can’t stay new forever
cause things can’t stay new forever
cause things can’t stay new forever
we have to work to keep it together
old melodies renewed and recreated
we have to keep on singing
