                “I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

A Rush of Blood by Coasts

“A Rush of Blood” by Coasts

Are you looking for something?
Are you searching for someone else?
You say I feel better at night time
Because the moon is your only friend

And I want you bad
And I knew that you wouldn’t wanna go without
I could be your hero
If you want me to you’ve got to show me how

LIKE A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD
You were crushing hearts till the end
LIKE A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD
You were crushing hearts till the end

I’m a dreamer, I wanna be a better man
I’ll never be all that you wanted
But I’ll give you everything that I can

Like the greatest rush that you ever felt
Then we hear the sound
I could be your hero
If you want me to you’ve got to show me how

LIKE A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD
You were crushing hearts till the end
Was a young love lost in the night
Are we in too deep to decide?

Put the beat in my heart, the words in my mouth
Kept me out of the dark
You put the taste I my tongue, the life in my soul
Gave me air for my lungs

LIKE A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD
You were crushing hearts till the end
Was a young love lost in the night
Are we in too deep to decide?

Be open and Receptive to love

Standard

Sometimes, without our acknowledgement, our past or present or the worry of the future unknowingly create barriers that make it difficult for us to make room for others in our lives and in our hearts.

Whether it be a bad break up… or in my case witnessing a horrible marriage, or meeting future goals and being too busy in the present to achieve those future goals, are all barriers that hold us back from one of the most important and basic of human needs and desires: the desire to love and be loved.

If you are lucky, like I was, someone understanding, patient, kind and persistent comes along and breaks down those walls and teaches you to trust and love despite what you have experienced or witnessed in the past. But often we have to be open and receptive to the idea for it to work out.

When “looking for love” it never hurts to stand back and self examine to ensure that we are open and ready to devote the time and energy to receive and to give love to someone else.

cheers.

COLDPLAY LYRICS

“Paradise”

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
Dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Every time she closed her eyes
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth

Life goes on
It gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear, a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
She closed her eyes
In the night, the stormy night
Away she’d fly.

And dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh

She dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

So lying underneath those stormy skies.
She said oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.
I know the sun must set to rise.

Enjoy 🙂

KEANE LYRICS
“Somewhere Only We Know”

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go?
So why don’t we go?

This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?
🙂
