Song Lyric Sunday – Comfort Me by Tim McGraw

For someone who doesn’t really listen to country music anymore, I seem to post a lot of it.  I suppose no matter what your current playlists are, you will always have those nostalgic albums that have a place in your heart.  Tim McGraw’s album, Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors is one of those albums for me.

I haven’t listened to this song in years, but it perfectly expresses all those thing that are comforting to me.  It is also an easy song to listen to what with the violin and the banjo.  I also went out and found a video that has some pretty stunning scenery, so I hope you enjoy watching and listening and basking in comfort.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Wake me my lady don’t let me sleep
Open my eyes to the wonders you keep
Let me look at you see how you shine
I’ll fall in love like I’ve done every time

Lay me in soft green grass
Down where the river runs
Under the mountain caps
Gold with the setting sun

Walk me along the bay
Beyond the verdant trees
Carry me with your grace
Forever comfort me

You walk on water searching the east
The souls of the masses pass at your feet
Looking up at you with tears in their eyes
Fathers of fathers of fathers gone by

Walk me down old main streets
Ride me down rusty rails
Fields full of summer wheat
Peppered with rounded bales
Steeples where church bells ring
Lighthouses by the sea
Reach out through gathered storms
Faithfully comfort me

I am your tired I am your poor in spirit
Yearning to breathe, breathe free
Breathe free

Lay me in soft green grass
Down where the river runs
Under the mountain caps
Gold with the setting sun

Walk me down old main streets
Ride me down rusty rails
Fields full of summer wheat
Peppered with rounded bales
Steeples where church bells ring
Lighthouses by the sea
Reach out through gathered storms
Faithfully comfort me

Comfort Me

Song Lyric Sunday – Party In Your Bedroom by Cash Cash

This was the very first song I thought of when I was thinking of a song to post for the theme.  I don’t know what it is about this band… now that I listened to it again, I’m realizing that this song is cheesy as hell, but honestly, they still just make me smile.

This is another one of those bands that Adelle and I heard when I was taking her to Warped Tour every year.  In our defense, the first time we heard them live, we pretty much laughed at them and mocked them while standing at the very back of the crowd.  However, Adelle kept listening to them, which in turn meant I kept listening to them, and before I knew it, they were all I was listening to.  They accompanied me on many trips to my sister’s house, and now they are simply nostalgia for me.

So, given that this is a party theme and we all love those parties in our bedrooms late at night, I will let you just sit and enjoy this one for what it is.

Happy partying!

There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight, don’t say goodnight
Walkin’ down the street, keepin’ hush, hush on the scene
No one knows you, such a mystery
Opposite of fun ’til you turn the power on
Then you come out turnin’ up the heat
Upstairs all alone, one click for a show
Your roof is on fire, you’re losing control
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight don’t say goodnight
Dancing with your hands turning strangers into friends
Touch the keys please and unlock my heart
You’re free to be a freak, change your picture every week
Show the camera you’re a super star
Upstairs all alone, one click for a show
Your roof is on fire, you’re losing control
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight don’t say goodnight
It’s no debate, when I think of you can’t stay on track
Cause I can’t wait, can’t stay on track, can’t hide the fact
You’re all I want, you’re all I need
Let’s get this party started, kick it hard just you and me
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
There’s a party in your bedroom all night long
There’s a lot of talk about you
Cause there’s a party in your bedroom all night long
Pretty girl it’s a show, let it go when you’re alone
Lips sealed tight don’t say goodnight

Just Jot It January 1 – Nostalgia, the good and the bad

I’ve had a lot going on this week, which was only compounded by the holiday. Thank goodness I’ve had the past two days off so I could start the recovery process (hopefully) from this darn cold that has been killing me. I also spent quite a bit of time at the hospital with my brother and his wife… (Tune in tomorrow and I will give you all the amazing news. I would do it tonight, but I’m pretty exhausted and I want that particular post to be perfect!)

The boyfriend and I decided to go on a date today. It was mostly just a movie, but we also really wanted to do dinner. Sometimes the hardest part of a date is deciding where to eat. We drove around the entire complex and finally decided on a place we have both been before, but I probably haven’t been there in five years or more.

I have to say, it was pretty terrible. The restaurant I remembered from five years ago is not the same place we ate at tonight, despite the name on the sign. My boyfriend is the guy who will eat all of his food, even if he is miserable afterwards. We both left a lot of food on the table. He even said that if he’s leaving food on the table, that means it was really bad.

Thank God the movie was the nostalgia I knew it would be.

I was the person who wanted to see Star Wars the Force Awakens on opening weekend and everyone scoffed at me that it would be insanely busy, or it wasn’t worth it. And yet, everyone else saw it opening weekend except for me and the boyfriend. We finally had a few free hours today and two free tickets.

It was amazing! I loved everything about it. I loved that it had some of the original characters and I fell in love with all the new ones. I particularly loved that Rey was a strong female character who ended up saving Finn’s life on multiple occasions, rather than the reverse. It could have come across as forced, but I don’t think it did.

It was a fabulous way to start off 2016 and now I’m putting it down here to start my blog’s new year. (I was trying to think of how to use the prompt word, but I didn’t want to be persnickety, so I decided to let it go)

Happy New Year to my WordPress family! I hope you had an amazing 2015 and I’m raising my glass to you and the start of another amazing year.

SoCS – Ring-Ring-Ring

Am I the only one who misses the ringing of the telephone? How when you were all the way upstairs and you heard it faintly through the floor or floating up the stairs, you had a moment where you could either run and try to catch it or let it go. But back then, if you let it go, you always ran the risk of never knowing who had called because there was no such thing as caller ID.

I know cell phones ring and there is still some running to catch those, but there are so many different ring tones now that are customized to either the person that is calling or the owner’s preference. It isn’t just a *ring* now.

I know it’s simply nostalgia, because I wouldn’t go back to those days, but sometimes just thinking about it makes me smile.

I remember the phone was right next to my parent’s bedroom and there were times I would take the phone as far as the chord (what I mean to say is the phone line plugged into the wall) would allow and then even farther, stretching out the curly phone chord until it wouldn’t stretch anymore. It usually got me about four stairs up on the staircase that was around the corner, where I could talk to “whomever” in relative peace.

I also remember using the phone to prank call people. It was one of the more exciting things my friends and I did during our sleepovers. That came to a pretty quick end when *69 started to happen and people started calling us back. Now that, my friends, was scary. But they didn’t call us back because they saw our names on their caller ID or because they knew who we were.

Things are so different now-a-days. It makes me wonder how kids are now, having grown up with caller ID and phones right next to them. It actually makes me sad to think that is one thing the kids won’t fight over – who is going to answer the phone.

There was always that moment while the phone was ringing when you could wonder who was on the other line and if it was that one person you were hoping or wishing would call.

I feel like this post is a bit all over the place. The only planning I had when I started was that I was thinking about that phone ringing in my childhood home and my thoughts have kind of run all over the place with then and now.

Believe it or not, I actually resisted the cell phone. I told my then-husband that I would never own a cell phone. If people wanted to talk to me, they could call me when I was at home. It could wait, I remember saying. That is actually still true, but now, we are all so used to having it right next to us at any given moment.

I don’t mind change. In fact, it’s nice, but sometimes, the nostalgia does set in and I like smiling in the memories of the ringing telephone.
