lyrics of the day ...

It happens to me all the time and I am certain is has happened to you at least once. There are times when things are happening in your life or the lives of those you love and you just can't seem to find the words you are looking for to sum it up. You can't find exactly the way to verbalize what your very being is trying to say. You search yourself and then just succumb to the fact you probably won't be able to ever capture what your desperately longing to convey.

Then, just when you've come to terms with it ... there they are. The universe somehow finds a way to drop the words/thoughts right there in your lap just when you need them the most. In my case they are always delivered in the strangest and most perfectly timed way. Not always on my schedule, but perfect all the same. I often find myself lost in music and then I realize the words swirling around me were the ones I had been searching for all along. Certainly not verbatim, but the concept is almost always right on target.

I am so thankful for moments like these. My favorite and much appreciated lyrics for today ...

when the weight of the world
breaks down so strong
leaves footprints on the street
and there's too many miles to face
without a few more hours sleep
the storm clouds overhead won't shed
any rain to quench your thirst
i wanna be the one you reach for first

when your faith is stretched so thin
you can see right through your soul
and you can't find a nickel to buy a smile
cause all your pockets all got holes
you wanna shut the door and
hide hide before the day can get much worse

fall into me
my arms are opened wide
and you don't have to say a word
cause i already see
that it's hard
and your scared
and your tired
and it hurts
and i wanna be the one you reach for first ........
