The best

She gets the late night phone calls and you get the date nights
She barely hears from him until you get in a fight
And the worst part is you know she's harmless
You don't need to wonder where his heart is
'Cause you've got him
And she never had him at all

She gets to hear him talk about how to stay with you
She gives him great advice, sacrifice and her love, too.
And the best part is he'll never know
She'd rather cry than let it show
Because so far
She just hasn't been what he wants

She hears the same old story, every single time
He doesn't realize who he's looking in the eye
And the worst part is he really trusts her
He doesn't see how he could love her
She's the best friend
(And) she'll never be anything more

It was dark
On that night we said goodbye
It was hard
It was tough
Never easy
Never enough

I pushed you away
And I meant to
I needed to
I pushed you to something you didn't want to do

I couldn't let my heart open
I've always been scared to show it
It's not perfect in shape or size
(But) it's mine

I pushed you away
I told you to go
I told you "no"
I pushed you to stop all the nonsense
This talk of "us"

It's my turn


He told it to me so sweetly
He said that he had fallen for me
I could see it in his eyes
Honesty won that night

....insert explanatory/transitional verse here...

{I won't say it never was
but I won't say it's meant to be
but right here, right now...
It's not for me}

He told it to me so sweetly
He said that he had to leave
He could see it in my eyes
His honesty made me cry


It's not finished. There is something more to the story.

Burning Bridges

It's been a long time
A long time since I've posted
And a long time since I've written
Now I'm trying to do both
Here's my sad attempt at writing again..

Burning Bridges

I. I take it all back, it was too late at night

The things I said burn in daylight

I changed my mind, I'm in over my head

(need a line)

II. I'm done talking, I'm walking away

Leaving those words where they dropped and now lay

Don't pick em up, I don't mean what I say

I've crossed over, it's comin down, look away.

CH: I'm burning bridges baby

We're on opposite sides

You'll never reach me baby

No matter how hard you try

Cus I'm lookin back

Feelin bad for those lies

But I'm burning bridges

We're on opposite sides

I have a third verse.. but it needs some serious revision.

There it is.. unfortunately the tune that popped in my head when I was writing this song resembles country.. which is definitely not what I was going for. So I'm revising the melody as well.. Any suggestions? opinions? lines? verses? Feel free :)

I have this soft spot in my heart for Bruce Springsteen. To be honest, I'm not one of those fans that knows every single song, or random trivia about him. But I love his music. And his style. He just seems....real.
I remember the day that I first found my mother's Born in the USA cassette and CD (she has both). Popped it in my stereo and...fell in love.
The drumbeats that make you want to start tapping along.
The heartfelt lyrics of typical life. Things that really happen.
The unadulterated American pride.

I still can almost always recognize one of "The Boss"'s songs on the radio, even if I haven't heard it before.

He just has such a distinguishable voice.

My heart sort of does this fluttery/excited/want to dance thing when Bruce comes on the radio. I can't help but smile, and start tapping on the steering wheel.

I love it.
My favorites:
Glory Days
Dancing in the Dark
Born to Run
Working on the Highway
My Hometown
and, of course,
Born in the USA

I Haven't Forgotten

I haven't forgotten.
We're going.
I'm saving.
Next summer.
Let's get going on our languages :D
It's been too long.. this really can't wait any longer or it will slip away from us.
Don't forget :)
P.S. I love music.
