Time

“Time, time time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities…”
~A Hazy Shade of Winter by Simon & Garfunkel

Time is merely a concept

a construct

a way of accounting, if you will

Sometimes we say time flies

other times it drags on and on

or so We say…

Time passes as it will and does not rely on or cater to us

The only thing we can control

is how we spend our time

A Hazy Shade of Winter by Simon & Garfunkel
Full lyrics:
Time, time time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities
I was so hard to please
Don’t look around
The leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Hear the Salvation Army band
Down by the riverside’s, there’s bound to be a better ride
Than what you’ve got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around
Leaves are brown, now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That’s an easy thing to say
But if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend that you can build them again
Look around
The grass is high
The fields are ripe
It’s the springtime of my life
Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won’t you stop and remember me
At any convenient time?
Funny how my memory skips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime
I look around
Leaves are brown, now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground

Have you ever…?

Have you ever heard an old song, one you’ve heard before and suddenly HEARD the song, heard the lyrics and wondered what the hell?!

I’m going to post this video and the lyrics…. not because I like it but because REALLY what the bloody hell?

Basically he is saying he is an asshat, he will not love you doesn’t care if you love him, he will cheat on you almost assuredly and he will not even be around when needed but hey he still wants to have his way with you!  At least he is up front….

“I’m Not Sayin'”

I’m not sayin’ that I love you
I’m not sayin’ that I’ll care if you love me
I’m not sayin’ that I’ll care
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be there when you want me
I can’t give my heart to you
Or tell you that I’ll sing your name up to the sky
I can’t lay the promise down
That I’ll always be around when you need me

Now I may not be alone each time you see me
Along the street or in a small cafe
But still I won’t deny or mistreat you
Baby if you let me have my way

I’m not sayin’ I’ll be sorry
For all the things that I might say that make you cry
I can’t say I’ll always do
The things you want me to
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be true but I’ll try

Now I may not be alone each time you see me
Or show up when I promised that I would
But still I won’t deny or mistreat you
Baby if you love me like you should

I’m not sayin’ I’ll be sorry
For all the things that I might say that make you cry
I can’t say I’ll always do
The things you want me to
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be true but I’ll try
I can’t say I’ll always do
The things you want me to
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be true but I’ll try

Blood Into Gold – Peter Buffett featuring Akon

Even if this is not your normal taste in music…give it a listen.  Powerful message!

 

 

 

LYRICS:
When I go to sleep at night
I wonder why I dont feel the pain
From where the sun is shining bright
But empty shells of lives remain

I know the news will tell me why
And well watch others take the fall
But who will hear when someone cries
That saving one can save us all

Can you open your heart?
Will you give me your hand?
Can you look in my eyes?
Will you see who I am?

The blood of your sons and
The blood of your daughters
The blood of my sisters
The blood of my brothers
The blood of your fathers
The blood of your mothers
All that you own through the blood of another

See when I go to sleep at night
Everything seems to fade away
If I live to see daylight
What part of life will I decide to change?

I see the sun.
Kind of reminds me of the gold that brightens our day
I see the rain
And also see all the blood that is washes away

CHORUS

Now its time to shine the light
In all the corners that we fear
We can win without a fight
But only love can take us there

Can you open your heart?
Will you give me your hand?
Can you look in my eyes?
Will you see who I am?

Interlude

He was a thing of beauty that could not be claimed

a phenomenon of passion that could not  be tamed

I don’t kid myself anymore, he was never mine;

lovely illusion

Even as we met I knew it was too good to last;

 forgone conclusion

The brief interlude of happiness would be worth the pain;

self-delusion
