"Black"

Hey... oooh...

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did.
All five horizons revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore

And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds of what was everything.
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside, I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head, I'm spinning, oh,
I'm spinning, how quick the sun can drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass of what was everything
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be... yeah...

Uh huh... uh huh... ooh...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky,
But why, why, why can't it be, can't it be mine?

Aah... uuh..

Too doo doo too, too doo doo [many times until fade]

Then What by Clay Walker

Well I got a good friend who's got a good life.
He's two pretty children and a real nice wife.
Yet he never seems quite satisfied.
Well I said I know what's on your mind
But you better think about it 'fore ya cross that line.
The grass ain't always greener on the other side.

Then what?
Whatcha gonna do
When the new wears off and the old shines through?
When it ain't really love and it ain't really lust?
You ain't anybody anyone's gonna trust.
Then what?
Where ya gonna turn
When ya can't turn back from the bridges you burned?
When fate can't wait to kick ya in the butt
Then what?
Oh then what?

Well I ain't sayin' that lookin's a crime.
Oh I've done my share from time to time.
But it don't mean that ya gotta take that leap.
When you're standin' on the brink
Before you jump ya gotta step back and think.
There's a price for every
Promise you don't keep.

Oh...

Then what?
Whatcha gonna do
When the new wears off and the old shines through?
When it ain't really love and it ain't really lust?
You ain't anybody anybody's gonna trust.
Then what?
Where ya gonna turn
When ya can't turn back from the bridges you burned?
When fate can't wait to kick ya in the butt
Then what?
Oh then what?

Do what ya want.
Do what ya wish.
It's your life but remember this:
There's bound to be some consequences
For sneakin' under other fences.

Oh...

Then what?
Whatcha gonna do
When the new wears off and the old shines through?
When it ain't really love and it ain't really lust?
You ain't anybody anybody's gonna trust.
Then what?
Where ya gonna turn
When ya can't turn back from the bridges you burned?
When fate can't wait to kick ya in the butt
Then what?
Oh then what?

Why Did you Mess With Forever
John Mayer


I came by to get my things
Thank you for getting the door
But I don't feel right walking in no more
You're crying out at cold I did my crying at home
And I'm numb now, I'm numb now

Before I'm on my way
I've one more thing to ask
Was it worth the price you paid
For my never coming back

Why did you mess with forever?
What a long time to be unkind
Why did you mess with forever?

Don't you call me cruel
Cruel's what you're making me do
I stick to my rules
I'm at odds with my heart
Somethang tells me I should look you in the eye goodbye


Before I'm on my way
I've one more thing to ask
Was it worth the price you paid
For my never coming back

Why did you mess with forever?
What a long time to be unkind
Why did you mess with forever?

You asked to kiss me once goodbye
But you already did
On somebody else's lips

Tell the tiny chemicals
The ones you hold responsible
They lost me
You lost me

Now everything inside me tells me I should run to you and throw my arms around
you
Hold your steamin,crying cheek against my own and tell you nothing's wrong
But wrong is what you were when you forgot that
We were going on
We were going on
We were going still on

Tell me why did you, why did you mess with forever?
What a long time be unkind
Why did you mess with forever?

For me these lines really grab the essence of how I feel;

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass of what was everything
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be... yeah..
.

Everything is tainted now. Everything we had, me, my future...everything.

Bad Day today. And the thing is it should be a good day, I am headed out of town by myself to do what I enjoy.

It is our 1 year DDay anniversary. F IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Slater. Hang on in there.
I love this song, and yes it says it all.
It's one of the ones I listened to over and over after our Dday.
Are you reconciling or and you and your OH separated?
Yeh it's crap isn't it.
We are all In this club that nobody wants to be in!

Mine is "Try" by Pink:
Ever wonder about what he's doing
How it all turned to lies
Sometimes I think that it's better
to never ask why

Where there is a desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try try try
Gotta get up and try try try
You gotta get up and try try try

Eh, eh, eh

Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy
Even when it's not right

Where there is a desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up try try try
Gotta get up and try try try
You gotta get up and try try try

Ever worried that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you're out there doing what you're doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by by by

Where there is a desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try try try
Gotta get up and try try try
You gotta get up and try try try
Gotta get up and try try try
Gotta get up and try try try
You gotta get up and try try try
Gotta get up and try try try

You gotta get up and try try try
Gotta get up and try try try

I was listening to this Offspring song this morning and this forum popped in my head:


Show me how to lie, you’re getting better all the time
And turning all against the one is an art that’s hard to teach
Another clever word sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back in the line a mob jumps to their feet

Now dance, ****er, dance, man, he never had a chance
And no one even knew, it was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes, hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see ‘em running for their lives

Slowly outta line and drifting closer in your sights
So play it out I’m wide awake, it’s a scene about me
There’s something in your way and now someone is gonna pay
And if you can’t get what you want, well, it’s all because of me

Now dance, ****er, dance, man, I never had a chance
And no one even knew, it was really only you

And now you’ll lead the way
Show the light of day
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid
Trust, deceived

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes, hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see ‘em running for their lives

Now dance, ****er, dance, he never had a chance
And no one even knew, it was really only you
So dance, ****er, dance, I never had a chance
It was really only you

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit ‘em right between the eyes, hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see ‘em running for their lives

Clever alibis, Lord of the Flies
Hit ‘em right between the eyes, hit ‘em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes, see ‘em running for their lives
