Crazy (for loving you)

Thursday, February 02, 2012

From a song about someone being "Always on My Mind" to a love lost and feeling "Crazy" about it, this one was also written by Willie Nelson, and I remember the Patsy Cline version the best, although many, many others have covered it. 1962


Crazy, I'm crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy, crazy for feeling so blue
I knew you'd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday you'd leave me for somebody new


Worry, why do I let myself worry?
Wond'ring what in the world did I do?
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying


And I'm crazy for loving you
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you.

You Were Always On My Mind

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

According to Wikipedia: "Always on My Mind" is an American country music song by Johnny Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, originally recorded by Brenda Lee in 1972. Lots of people have recorded it - I like Willie Nelson's version (1982).


Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind


Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine



If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm so sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind


Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance to keep you satisfied, satisfied



Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Faithfully

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Almost Valentine's Day - thought I'd do some love songs. Faithfully was originally written and recorded by the band Journey in 1983. It's the tale of a "music man" on the road, relating the difficulties of starting a family and how they must "learn to fall in love again" when they reunite. He promises he loves her "faithfully".


Highway run
Into the midnight sun
Wheels go round and round
You're on my mind
Restless hearts
Sleep alone tonight
Sending all my love
Along the wire



They say that the road
Ain't no place to start a family
Right down the line
It's been you and me
And lovin' a music man
Ain't always what it's supposed to be
Oh, girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours
Faithfully


Circus life
Under the big top world
We all need the clowns
To make us smile
Through space and time
Always another show
Wondering where I am
Lost without you


And being apart
Ain't easy on this love affair
Two strangers learn to fall in love again
I get the joy of rediscovering you
Oh, girl, you stand by me
I'm forever yours
Faithfully



Whooa, oh-oh-ooh
Whooa, oh-oh-ooh, oh
Whooa, oh-oh-oh, oh-whoooooa-oh
Faithfully
I'm still yours
I'm forever yours
Ever yours


Faithfully www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVs4jDL-JBo

Quiet Day

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

I spent a quiet day at home - finally getting out in the late afternoon to walk the pups. I was thinking about how I'd wasted the day, then remembered the last couple of weeks when I felt so sick. Not so bad a day, after all! These quotes are from InspirationPeak.com


"Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return."

Mary Jean Iron





"Be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars."

Henry Van Dyke




"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."

Author Unknown



“This life is a test-it is only a test.
It it had been an actual life, you would have received further
instructions on where to go and what to do.
Remember, this life is only a test.”

― Jack Kornfield (From Goodreads.com)

    Sometimes its really good to just take a day to relax and do nothing. It's not a wasted day, it's a recharging day.
