The sorrow

You're only a day a way!

Tomorrow!
You're only

Restore my broken dreams
Shattered like a falling glass
I'm not ready to be broken just yet
A lesson once learned is so hard to forget

...

I've been to every single book I know
To soothe the thoughts that plague me so

...

It's like singing in the wind
Or writing on the surface of a lake
And I wriggle like a fish caught on dry land
And I struggle to avoid any help at hand

I sink like a stone that's been thrown in the ocean
My logic has drowned in a sea of emotion
Stop before you start
Be still my beating heart
You don't know me.

Hello darkness my old friend, I've come to talk to you again.
For the vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain,
Still remains, within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone through narrow streets of cobblestone.
Beneath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp.
When my eyes were stabbed by a flash of the neon light,
And split the night, and touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening.
People writing songs that voices never shared,
No one dared disturb the sound of silence.

"Fools," said I, "you do not know, silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
Echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming, and the sign said:
"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
and tenement halls," and whispered the sounds of Silence.

Since we seem to be posting songs, a cookie to anyone who can name the most of these.

How come this wasted time is such a loss expressed on my side?
I'd give you everything if you just let me stand beside you
Your kind is so amused and still confused by what you live with
Your darkness just won't go away
Your light, it's time for you to shine on today
Nothing but darkness in me
Darkness, night time
No moon in the sky tonight
Feeling like our lives been tucked away, today
Life is darkness, forever remain, and again
How come these things you say they always seem to grow and haunt me?
I'd give you everything if you just let me stand beside you
You seem to think that I would let things slide and have you change me
This darkness just won't go away
No light, inside for me to shine on today
Nothing but darkness in me

This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear
This is my December
This is my snow covered home
This is my December
This is me alone
And I
Just wish that
I didn't feel
Like there was
Something I missed
And I
Take back all
The things I said
To make you
Feel like that
And I
Just wish that
I didn't feel
Like there was
Something I missed
And I
Take back all the
Things I said to you
And I give it all away
Just to have somewhere
To go to
Give it all away
To have someone
To come home to
This is my December
These are my snow-covered trees
This is me pretending
This is all I need


My wish is...
My wish is...
My wish is...
My wish is, I hope to do for you
All that you've done, because all that you do it's like magic
Your amazing me, a diamond for free
Your as real as can be and to keep you, I'd give up everything I own
The mic and my life just don't leave me alone you're my partner
I want you to see, no matter how bad things in life can be
You've always got me
You've always got me
Now you trust me, I carry that so tight
I'll be there for you, if your wrong or your right
It doesn't matter, just reach out to me
I will never question, any opportunity to show you
And prove to you that I care, always you share and you've always been there
Your my best friend, it's easy to see
No matter how bad things in life can be..


When I pretend everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you always wanted to see
When I pretend, I can't forget about the criminal I am
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can but
I can't pretend this is the way it'll stay I'm just
Trying to bend the truth
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be, so I'm
Lying my way from you.


There's no story that ain't been told
There's no gimmick that ain't been sold
Ain't no ocean that ain't been swam
Ain't no java that ain't been slammed
There's no road that never been travled
There's no doctor that ain't been baffled
Ain't no thug that never cried
Ain't no preacher that never lied
There's no rumor that ain't been passed
Ain't no question that no one's asked
There's no trees that ain't been chopped
There's no bomb that wont get dropped
Ain't no paths that no one's been laid
Ain't no beast that ain't been afraid
No feat that no one can
There's no saga that never began
Ain't no snow that didn't melt
There's no punch that ain't been felt
There's no skill that no one's learned
There's no planet that He ain't turned
There's no view that never dissolved
There's no problem that ain't been solved
There's no tail that no one's told
There's no beauty that won't get old
There's no garden that the sun ain't beamed on
There's no shoulder that ain't been leaned on
There's no color that ain't been seen
Purple Red Yellow Blue Forest Green
There's no desert that ain't seen rain
Nobody here that ain't felt pain
There's no bigot that ain't been clowned
There's no treasure that I ain't found
Ain't no gate they never explored
Ain't no mother that ain't been ignored
There's no leader that ain't been lead
There's no blood that ain't been shed
There's no dish they never made
No brick they never laid
Everything left's been done before
Nothings new, nowhere to explore

If you're reading this
Then I finally did it
I'm sorry I didn't say goodbye
There was no time
Understand I was stressed
Living day to day was hard
And I gave it my best
But there was nothing left
For me in this world
To convince me to stay
Now I'm long gone away
Don't you do that
Don't you start your tears
Just remember all the time we spent over the years
Never cry
Never think bad to me
What's done is done and that's the way it had to be
I need you to be strong for me
Say your prayer everyday in my memory
I'm sure it's helping me
To earn my feathers
To get some wings
And a halo and a harp and angelic things
And even though I'm gone And outta sight
Never worry about me
I'm alright
I'm alright
And if I should die
Don't blame yourself and keep it locked inside
I'm alright
And everytime you cry don't breakdown
Just keep me inside in your mind
You only saw the outside
Never knew what I was feeling
Now everyday you lay in bed staring at the ceiling
But you don't see me no more
You can fill your heart with memories
And things from before
But everybody got a purpose in life
To survive when the sunrise
You gonna live to see another day
Just don't follow me and live your life your own way
I'll be in set and if you forget
Get the picture with the cord around my neck
See me underground and I'm stuck
But it's cool that's where I wanna be
Keep the drama in hand but outta sight
And know that
I'mma be alright.

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone ...
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity ...
Dust in the Wind.
All they are is dust in the wind.

Same old song, ... just a drop of water in an endless sea.
All we do ... crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see.
Dust in the wind.
All we are is dust in the wind.

Now don't hang on, -- nothing lasts forever except the earth and sky.
It slips away, ... and all your money won't another minute buy.

Dust in the wind. All we are is dust in the wind.
Dust in the wind. Everything is dust in the wind.

Oh, and one a bit more optimistic.


I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too
I love her

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me
And I love her

A love like ours, could never die
As long as I have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her.

The theme of the songs, I thought, was the joy of leaving the military, especially considering the war in Iraq, to a new and uncharted, but bright future; Elliot is ETSing very soon from Texas to a new home in Seattle, his military obligation to his country over. He can enjoy a life not being mere government property, but of a citizen and veteran of a foreign war.

Since I had that same experience back in 1994, I posted with the song I felt expressed that feeling best. ;)

Edit: That said, I love Sting, whether talking about the thread or not. One of my all-time favorite artists. ;)


Well, in a hundred years from now, they will attempt to tell us how
A scientific means to bliss,
Will supercede the human kiss

Oh! Well, I didn't figure that one out. I wasn't ever in the service, so I just put up a song I like. :) Is that what we're doing now?

Sometimes nature makes the most beautiful things by accident. :D

Don't worry about it. This is great how it is! It's become much better than what I thought it was anyway. ;)

Not military-oriented, either but, well, meaningful.

Always the rain
Fills up the room again
And you can learn to swim
If you will not give in

And I always give
All that I have to give
'Cos I hate to see
Expressions of defeat

Get me some rest at the end of the day
Things off my chest at the end of the day
Sauna and soap 'til the stains burn away
Bring me new hope at the end of the day

All reaching out
Trapped in a roundabout
Sometimes it's hard to breathe
It's hard enough to be

And I always give
All that I have to give
Cos I need to feel
I've made a difference when they leave

Get me some rest at the end of the day
Things off my chest at the end of the day
Sauna and soap 'til the stains burn away
Bring me new hope at the end of the day

Mind-clearing heat
Cooling water
My hands are here
To help the others

That's who I am
And there's nothing they can say
I'm still the man
At the end of the day
