The Daily Song:Before You Exit/Clouds

Heart-breaker from Before You Exit.

“Clouds”

Time tried to stop one
Cold cold night in June
Somehow I knew you
Kept on dancing throughAnd you jumped on a flight in the
Darkest of blues, took a trip to paradise
Through the stars and back over the moon
Oh, tell me it’s true, oh

Please just tell me you’re alright
Are you way up in the sky
Laughing, smiling, looking down
Saying “one day we’ll meet in the clouds”
Up in the clouds

No one I knew stood
Half as bright as you
But now you shine on
The perfect avenue

And the light that you left it helps me to see
A way through all the bitterness
A way to who I really want to be
Oh, light up the streets, oh

Please just tell me you’re alright
Are you way up in the sky
Laughing, smiling, looking down
Saying “one day we’ll meet in the clouds”
Up in the clouds

Some nights I still hear your whispers
And your memories they hang like a picture
Oh, and you’ll always be just like a sister

Some nights I still see your smile
Your number I wish I could dial
Oh, but I can’t wait to talk for a while, oh

Please just tell me you’re alright
Are you way up in the sky
Laughing, smiling, looking down
I know one day we’ll meet in the clouds
Up in the clouds

 

The Daily Song: Matthew Koma – Hard To Love

Some days we all feel hard to love. . .

Hard To Love

Lyricist: Matthew Koma, Frederic Kennedy, Max Collins, Beck & Carl Stephenson  Composer: Matthew Koma, Frederic Kennedy, Max Collins, Beck & Carl Stephenson

I rule the world from my sweat pants
I got a bitchin’ collection of headbands
I don’t wanna go out and see your friend’s band
Tell me when you had enough, enough, enough’s enough
I’m OCD with panic attacks
I got a thing for Japanese dry snacks
My voice was on like every fuckin’ house track
Tell me when you heard enough, enough, enough’s enough

But hear me out this time my love
I’m tryna be someone you want
Your friends will tell you “Whitney, are you taking drugs?
You see something no one else does”

‘Cause I’m hard to love
I’m hard to love
Yellow tiger on a leash
A diamond in the rough
The heart is in the right places
But I’m hard to love, I’m hard to love
But you mean everything to me
Don’t let me mess it up
‘Cause you’re the only one I
Plus I’m just hard to love
My heart is in the right places
But I’m hard to love

Day and night at the studio
When I get home I reek of weed and I’m moody though
You say you can’t pick up and follow when my tummy rolls
I got a red eye to New York, tomorrow we’ll talk
And if you want a true gentleman
That’s a sport that I don’t got any medals in
I’m a sole that your shoes oughtta settle in
Show me a little bit of trust, just a touch

But hear me out this time my love
I’m tryna be something I’m not
Your friends will tell you “Whitney, are you taking drugs?
Smoke ’em from his little black plugs”

‘Cause I’m hard to love
I’m hard to love
Yellow tiger on a leash
A diamond in the rough
The heart is in the right places
But I’m hard to love, I’m hard to love
But you mean everything to me
Don’t let me mess it up
‘Cause you’re the only one I
Plus I’m just hard to love
But you mean everything to me
Don’t let me mess it up
‘Cause you’re the only one I
Plus I’m just hard to love

Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby
So why don’t you thrill me
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby
So why don’t you thrill me

Yellow tiger on a leash
A diamond in the rough
The heart is in the right places
But I’m hard to love, I’m hard to love
But you mean everything to me
Don’t let me mess it up
‘Cause you’re the only one I
Plus I’m just hard to love

(Soy un perdedor)
Yellow tiger on a leash
A diamond in the rough
The heart is in the right places
But I’m hard to love

(Soy un perdedor)
But you mean everything to me
Don’t let me mess it up
‘Cause you’re the only one I
Plus, but I’m hard to love

 

 

 

The Daily Song: You + Me (Sade)/No Ordinary Love

Gorgeous and haunting. . .

 

“No Ordinary Love”

I gave you all the love I got
I gave you more than I could give
I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside
And you took my love
You took my love
Didn’t I tell you
What I believe
Did somebody say that
A love like that won’t last
Didn’t I give you
All that I’ve got to give babyI gave you all the love I got
I gave you more than I could give
I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside
And you took my love
You took my love

I keep crying
I keep trying for you
There’s nothing like you and I baby

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love

When you came my way
You brightened every day
With your sweet smile

Didn’t I tell you
What I believe
Did somebody say that
A love like that won’t last
Didn’t I give you
All that I’ve got to give baby

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love

I keep crying
I keep trying for you
There’s nothing like you and I baby

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love

Keep trying for you
Keep crying for you
Keep flying for you
Keep flying I’m falling

I’m falling

Keep trying for you
Keep crying for you
Keep flying for you
Keep flying for you I’m falling
I’m falling

The Daily Song: All I Need Is You Jeffrey James

This is one of those songs that instantly spoke to my heart– the music, the lyrics, Jeffrey James’ voice.  It just does it for me.  Another one of my favorites to write to.  There is a poem stirring in my head about “love I can bathe in, A love that will wash over my skin, Till it’s all I feel.”



“All I Need Is You”

And now

Now that the moments right

Now I can spend my life

Just holding on to you

And all

All that I can take

Is more than you could break

So don’t you be afraidAnd I’ll always try

Got nothing to hideAnd I have been waiting

Waiting for love I can bathe in

A love that will wash over my skin

Till it’s all I feel

So won’t you show me

Show me that woman who knows me

Woman who knows all that I need

All I need

All I need is you

You with your perfect touch

You never giving up,

On me

And I’ll do my best

To wear my heart on my chest

And I have been waiting

Waiting for love I can bathe in

A love that will wash over my skin

Till it’s all I feel

So won’t you show me

Show me that woman who knows me

Woman who knows all that I need

All I need

All I need

All I need

All I need is you

All I need is you

The Daily Song: Dusk/Allman Brown

Suits my melancholy mood. . .

[Verse 1]
Alone at the station again
The cry of the train in the night
It’s still such a long way to go
Bags at my feet
And memories at my back
Oh look, look how far I’ve come

[Chorus]
But there’s still so many miles to go before I’m done
So many miles beneath the moon and the sun
So many miles, oh-oh oh-oh
So for now, I’m just singing here in the dark

[Verse 2]
Starlight above me when it died long ago
But still, it’s bright enough to live by
Drink deep from that well
Breathe in while you can, babe
This too shall fade

[Chorus]
But there’s still so many miles to go before I’m done
So many miles beneath the moon and the sun
So many miles, oh-oh oh-oh
So for now, I’m just singing here in the dark

[Bridge]
(In this dark )
In the dark
(In this  dark)
In the dark
(In this dark)
In the dark
Singing, singing, singing, singing, singing
Singing here in the dark

[Chorus]
But there’s still so many miles to go before I’m done
So many miles beneath the moon and the sun
So many miles, oh-oh oh-oh
So for now, I’m just singing here in the dark

[Outro]
Alone at the station, yeah
The cry of the train in the night
Such a long way to go

The Daily Song: Show Me Love/Robin Schulz & Richard Judge

Love the poetry of this

 

 

“Show Me Love”

There’s a notebook on the table
You can take it to the store so you won’t forget the groceries anymore
There’s a rifle in the cabinet that I used to fight a war
But to this day, I don’t know what I was fighting for
I’m fighting for
Will you show me love as we get older
And I’m falling at your feet
After 30 years of service
And one to fit our need
Show me love as we grow colder
Let our love provide the heat
That our older bones are missing
But our hearts will never meetThere’s a blanket on the sofa that I used to keep you warm
When I find you fast asleep at half past four
There’s a record we keep turning that reminds us of our youth
But there’s still nothing as beautiful as you

Will you show me love as we get older
And I’m falling at your feet
After 30 years of service
And one to fit our need
Show me love as we grow colder
Let our love provide the heat
That our older bones are missing
But our hearts will never meet
(As we grow colder
Love provide the heat
Older bones are missing
Hearts will never meet)

Because your hand belongs in my hand, belongs in your hand, belongs with… with me
(Blanket on the sofa that I used to keep you warm
There’s a record we keep turning that I used to turn you on)

Will you show me love as we get older
And I’m falling at your feet
After 30 years of service
And one to fit our need
Show me love as we grow colder
Let our love provide the heat
After 30 years of service
And one to fit our need
Show me love as we grow colder
Let our love provide the heat
That our older bones are missing
But our hearts will never meet

The Daily Song: Make It Holy/The Staves

The Staves show off their amazing harmonies in Make It Holy

Make It Holy

I could make you want me
Make you need me, make you mine
I could make it holy, make it special
Make it right
I could make you want me
Make you need me all the time
I could make it holy, make it fineHigh ends in the fire moving on, moving on
Torn apart and tired of it all, of it all
Walk, never the same
Feel no glory, feel no pain

I could make you want me
Make you need me, make you mine
I could make it holy, make it special
Make it right
I could make you want me
Make you need me all the time
I could make it holy, make you fine

Shaking out the sheets and holding on, holding on
Following my feet until it’s done, until it’s gone
It’s dead and gone
Never the same
Feel no glory, feel no pain

I could make you want me
Make you need me, make you mine
I could make it holy, make it special
Make it right
I could make you want me
Make you need me all the time
I could make it holy, make it fine

It’s the one I want now
You’ll never do wrong,
You’ll never do wrong
Did I ever, ever,
Ever do you wrong?

I could make you want me
Make you need me, make you mine
I could make it holy, make it special
Make it right
I could make you want me
Make you need me all the time
I could make it holy, make it fine

The Daily Song: Tired As Fuck/The Staves

Badass song by The Staves.  I think this should be the unofficial theme song of all those that suffer with fibromyalgia and CFS

Tired As Fuck

Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Dry my eyes on the back of my sleeve and do my coat up
Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Put down the phone, put on my gloves and wish me luck
Wish me luck

Oh, I’m tired as hell
Oh, I’m tired as hell
Busted bed, broken door and I’m keeping to myself
Oh, I’m tired as hell
Oh, I’m tired as hell
Put down the phone, put on my shoes and wish me well
Wish me well

Never had a prayer to swallow
I’ll be coming home tomorrow
Never had a prayer to follow
I’ll be coming home tomorrow

Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Nothing no one ever can do to bring me back up
Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Oh, I’m tired as fuck
Dry my eyes on the back of my sleeve, just wish me luck
Wish me luck

Never had a prayer to swallow
I’ll be coming home tomorrow
Never had a prayer to follow
I’ll be coming home tomorrow

Never had a prayer to swallow
I’ll be coming home tomorrow
Never had a prayer to follow
I’ll be coming home tomorrow
