    I love song lyrics, as they can often articulate feelings better then I can. With full credit to the artist and respect to copyrights, I'd like to post this:

    (From the album "Aqualung" by Jethro Tull, i971)

    Wond'ring Aloud

    Wond'ring aloud --
    how we feel today.
    Last night sipped the sunset --
    my hands in her hair.
    We are our own saviours
    as we start both our hearts beating life
    into each other.

    Wond'ring aloud --
    will the years treat us well.
    As she floats in the kitchen,
    I'm tasting the smell
    of toast as the butter runs.
    Then she comes, spilling crumbs on the bed
    and I shake my head.
    And it's only the giving
    that makes you what you are.

    Nothingman

    Once divided...nothing left to subtract...
    Some words when spoken...can't be taken back...
    Walks on his own...with thoughts he can't help thinking...
    Future's above...but in the past he's slow and sinking...
    Caught a bolt 'a lightnin'...cursed the day he let it go...

    Nothingman... (2x)
    Isn't it something?
    Nothingman...

    She once believed...in every story he had to tell...
    One day she stiffened...took the other side...
    Empty stares...from each corner of a shared prison cell...
    One just escapes...one's left inside the well...
    And he who forgets...will be destined to remember...oh...oh...oh...

    Nothingman... (2x)
    Isn't it something?
    Nothingman...

    Oh, she don't want him...
    Oh, she won't feed him...after he's flown away...
    Oh, into the sun...ah, into the sun...

    Burn...burn...
    Nothingman... (2x)
    Isn't it something?
    Nothingman...
    Nothingman... (2x)
    Coulda' been something...
    Nothingman...
    Oh...ohh...ohh...

    Train ... "Drops of Jupiter"

    Now that she's back in the atmosphere
    With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
    She acts like summer and walks like rain
    Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey
    Since the return from her stay on the moon
    She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

    Tell me did you sail across the sun
    Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
    And that heaven is overrated

    Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
    One without a permanent scar
    And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

    Now that she's back from that soul vacation
    Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
    She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
    Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey, hey

    Now that she's back in the atmosphere
    I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' Jane
    Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

    Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
    Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
    And head back to the Milky Way
    And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
    Was it everything you wanted to find
    And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

    Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
    Your best friend always sticking up for you
    even when I know you're wrong
    Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance, five hour phone conversation
    The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me

    Tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet
    Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
    And head back toward the Milky Way

    Tell me did you sail across the sun
    Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
    And that heaven is overrated

    Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
    One without a permanent scar
    And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

    And did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day

    And did you fall from a shooting star...
    Fall from a shooting star...

    And are you lonely by yourself out there...

    I love that one too Kath! My favorite is by The Seekers....I'll Never Find Another You. :) Listening to it now and it still brings tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat.... Take care. angel :)

    <b>I'll Never Find Another You</b>

    There's a new world somewhere they call the promised land,
    And I'll be there someday if you will hold my hand.
    I still need you there beside me, no matter what I do,
    For I know I'll never find another you.

    There is always someone for each of us they say,
    And you'll be my someone forever and a day.
    I could search the whole world over until my life is through,
    But I know I'll never find another you.

    It's a long, long journey, so stay by my side.
    When I walk through the storm, you'll be my guide, be my guide.

    If they gave me a fortune, my pleasure would be small;
    I could lose it all tomorrow and never mind at all.
    But if I should lose your love dear, I don't know what I'd do,
    For I know I'll never find another you.

    But if I should lose your love dear, I don't know what I'd do,
    For I know I'll never find another you.

    Another you,
    Another you.

    Stood Up - Matt Minglewood


    Seems like it's just a day or so since I offered you a ride
    Down along the waterfront just to watch the evening tide
    But you turned me down cause your new found friends had better things in store
    Sweet dreams on your mind, you wandered off to make the score

    Another favorite is Both Sides Now.
    A lot of artists have done it, but I prefer Joni Mitchell's rendition.


    Rolls and flows of angel hair,
    Ice cream castles in the air,
    Feather canyons everywhere,
    I've looked at clouds that way.
    But now they only block the sun.
    They rain, they snow on everyone.
    So many things I would've done
    But clouds got in my way.

    I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
    From up and down and still somehow
    It's clouds' illusions I recall.
    I really don't know clouds at all.

    Moons and Junes and ferris wheels,
    The dizzy, dancing way you feel
    As every fairy tale comes real.
    I've looked at love that way.
    But now it's just another show.
    Leave 'em laughin' when you go.
    But if you care, don't let em' know
    Don't give yourself away.

    I've looked at love from both sides now
    From give and take and still somehow
    It's love's illusions I recall.
    I really don't know love at all.

    Tears and fears and feeling proud,
    Say "I love you" right out loud.
    Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
    I've looked at life that way.
    But now old friends are acting strange.
    They shake their heads and say I've changed.
    But something's lost when somethings gained
    Living everyday.

    I've looked at life from both sides now
    From win and lose and still somehow
    It's life's illusions I recall.
    I really don't know life at all.

    Jakoval, I love that song and I didn't have it. Then I was about to ask who was that women who did the best version and you answered that too. Excellent.
    I now have the record off the net. I shall of course be sending Joni, the writers and the record company a small cheque each so not to be in breach of the copywrite laws. Honest.

    heres mine...........sadly always fitting to the time.........whatever decade we are in

    Imagine

    Imagine there's no heaven,
    It's easy if you try,
    No hell below us,
    Above us only sky,
    Imagine all the people
    living for today...

    Imagine there's no countries,
    It isnt hard to do,
    Nothing to kill or die for,
    No religion too,
    Imagine all the people
    living life in peace...

    Imagine no possesions,
    I wonder if you can,
    No need for greed or hunger,
    A brotherhood of man,
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world...

    You may say Im a dreamer,
    but Im not the only one,
    I hope some day you'll join us,
    And the world will live as one.

    enuff said

    This song came out while my daughter was fighting her fight against Cancer. When I need to feel close to her, I play this song, over and over...

    Angels in Waiting - by Tammy Cochran


    We camped out on the living room floor
    In our old sleeping bags, by a make-believe fire.
    In a tent made of covers, we talked for hours
    My two brother and me.
    Keeping the faith; racing with destiny.

    They were angels in waiting.
    Waiting for wings to fly from this world,
    Away from their pain
    Treasuring time, til time came to leave,
    Leaving behind sweet memories.
    Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for wings.

    They always knew they’d never grow old.
    Sometimes the body is weaker than the soul.
    In their darkest hour, I made a promise
    I will always keep:
    I’ll give them life; I’ll let them live through me.

    They were angels in waiting.
    Waiting for wings to fly from this world,
    Away from their pain
    Treasuring time, til time came to leave,
    Leaving behind sweet memories.
    Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for wings.
    Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for me.

    I am a devout Joni Mitchell fan, my all time favourite lady of voice!

    She wrote that song, thus is the original singer. Many artists have cited her as a major influence, and have performed her aongs. One notable example is Star Light, Stat Bright by Nazereth. I have about 10 Joni CD's and still looking.

    Hee....he says Well I do so...etc....LOL...hadta say dat...it bothered me;)

    Got a picture of you
    I carry in my heart
    Close my eyes and see you
    When the world gets dark
    Got a memory of you
    I carry in my soul
    I Wrap it close around me when the nights get cold

    If you asked me how I'm doing
    I'd say just fine
    But the truth is baby
    If you could read my mind

    Not a day goes by
    That I don't think of you
    After all this time
    You're still with me it's true
    Somehow you remain
    Locked so deep inside
    Baby, baby, oh baby
    Not a day goes by

    I still wait for the phone
    In the middle of the night
    Thinking you might call me
    If your dreams don't turn out right
    And it still amazes me
    That I lie here in the dark
    Wishing you were next to me
    With your head against my heart

    If you asked me how I'm doing
    I'd say just fine
    But the truth is baby
    If you could read my mind

    Not a day goes by
    That I don't think of you
    After all this time
    You're still with me it's true
    Somehow you remain
    Locked so deep inside
    Baby, baby, oh baby
    Not a day goes by

    Minutes turn to hours
    And the hours turn to days
    Seems it's been forever
    That I've felt this way

    Not a day goes by
    That I don't think of you
    After all this time
    You're still with me it's true, ohh
    Somehow you remain
    Locked so deep inside
    Baby, baby, oh baby
    Not a day goes by

    That I don't think of you


    -LoneStar
