STAY

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said, “Show me something,”
He said, “If you dare come a little closer.”

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take – it’s given

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay.

Ooh the reason I hold on
Ooh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it.
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you.
It takes me all the way.
I want you to stay, stay.
I want you to stay, oh.

This. Now. Always.

 

My new standard, motto, and most ardent hope.

After winter, must come spring…

I woke up to a lightbulb; every little thing is possible;

I woke up to a feeling; every little thing has meaning;

Now I’m gonna use my two hands; I’m gonna move a mountain;

I woke up to a lightbulb on; every little thing is possible now:

 

Love is a bright idea; Love is a brilliant plan;

I built my life around a bright idea;

I built my life around the love that I’ve found.

 

I woke up to a new day; every little thing gonna go my way

I woke up to a perfect thought; Every little thing in a perfect spot

Now I ‘m gonna use my own voice; I’m gonna sing the song of my choice

 

I woke up to a lightbulb on; everything is possible now:

Love is a bright idea; Love is a brilliant plan;

I built my life around a bright idea;

I built my life around the love that I’ve found.

 

I’m gonna use my two feet; I’m gonna walk to my own beat

 

I woke up to a lightbulb on; every little thing is possible, hey!

Love is a bright idea; Love is a brilliant plan;

I built my life around a bright idea (yes I have);I built my life around the love that I’ve found.

But, I fear there is no such thing. At least not in any instance where meaning is present. To tell the truth with as much grace and kindness as can be mustered may still be insufficient.

And I miss you… I miss you every single day

I just want to listen to this on repeat for all my life

Since I invite such speculation, such presumption and it is exhausting to continually dispell people of their misapprehensions, let us make it simple and say, if you are not:

My Mother

That One Guy

The Only Woman I Have Ever Thought Was Smarter Than Me

then, well…

 I’m not the man you think I am.

 

I didn’t know what a brute I was

dipped my cigarette

and I rode the bus

Vengeance built me hastily

and I dragged the clanging notion I was nobody, nobody

Nobody

 

All I had was my invention, 

and my love invented all of you

Oh, look what thoughts can do

what thoughts can do.

 

If you’re not by now dead and buried

you’re most certifiably married

Oh, married

 

I’m sure you’re sleeping sound

With the mistress of the hours

the hours that grind your life to dust

those easy loves you keep like pets

denied them you are powerless

Whatever keeps you sleeping through the night

I’m not the man you thought I was

my love has never lived indoors

I had to drag it home by force

hired hounds at both my wrists

damp and bruised by stranger’s kisses on my lips

 

But you’re the one that I still miss

you’re the one that I still miss

and the truth is that it comes as no surprise

 

I’m not the man you think I am

I’m not the man you think I am

Rolling In The Deep

 

Watch this. Listen with your whole self open. Let it wash you away.

 

I dare you to resist…

 

There’s a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bring me out the dark.
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your ship bare.

See how I’ll leave, with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do.

There’s a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bring me out the dark.

The scars of your love, remind me of us.
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside your hand
And you played it
To the beat

Baby I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one of you and I’m gonna make your head burn,
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Making a home down there as mine sure won’t be shared

The scars of your love, remind you of us.
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all

Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside your hand
And you played it
To the beat

We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside your hand
But you played it
With a beating

Throw your soul threw every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

We could have had it all
We could have had it all
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside your hand
And you played it to the beat

We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside your hand

But you played it,
You played it,
You played it
You played it to the beat

 

Words & Music By Billy Joel

In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along

I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
My silence is my self defense

And every time I’ve held a rose
It seems I only felt the thorns
And so it goes, and so it goes
And so will you soon I suppose

But if my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It’s just as well for all I’ve seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you’re the only one who knows

So I would choose to be with you
That’s if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
And you can have this heart to break

And so it goes, and so it goes
And you’re the only one who kno
