  1. My son just told me that he had to do an essay about a person who made an major impact in his life and begin it with a quote. He used this from the Edward Sharpe song Home. Oh, home, let me come home Home is whenever I'm with you Oh, home, let me come home Home is wherever I'm with you. Yuo, I cried.
  2. Not for the right woman. I was drawn to my SO in part because of his passion for his music.
  3. Just saw Barenaked Ladies this week on a whim. Third time seeing them and had a blast. I have always enjoyed both their playful side and sad sides. I have been listening on and off all week after such a great show and just caught Call and Answer (one song I was not familiar with) and WOW. I cried remembering all of the forgiving and second, third, fourth, etc chances i gave to my exH until I reached my breaking point after too many broken promises. I cried not for him or our relationship, but for how untrue I was to myself. I think it's getting to the point Where I can be myself again
  4. PP - Thank you for sharing. So glad to hear that your dad got sober. It is a horrible disease. I am happy for my kids that my ex got clean. Happy fathers day to your dad in heaven.
  5. The Scientist ...Nobody said it was easy It's such a shame for us to part Nobody said it was easy No one ever said it would be this hard just heard this one and forgot how sad it is
  6. PP, thanks for all of those. I am a late comer to Eric Church and agree 100%.
  7. Wow PP. Dealing with the same issue with my mom. Thank you for that.
  8. J lost his girl of 21 years last month right after we came home from vacation. He will not even discuss another kitten. He says he will know when the time is right. So will you. Macy is still grieving. Poor baby.
  9. The Smiths are another go to There's a club, if you'd like to go You could meet somebody who really loves you So you go and you stand on your own And you leave on your own And you go home and you cry And you want to die When you say it's gonna happen now When exactly do you mean? See I've already waited too long And all my hope is gone
  10. Wow Reinvent You roll out of bed and down on your knees And for a moment you can hardly breathe I remember that feeling - ouch
  11. I think most anything Chris Cornell wrote is pretty rough.
  12. I'll never hear this song the same way again. Thank you for sharing.
  13. Brave is hard for me to listen to these days. A good friend's son was struggling with his sexuality but would not come out to his very religious dad. I gave him Sara's CD and a card with the note "Innocence, your history of silence Won't do you any good Did you think it would? Let your words be anything but empty Why don't you tell them the truth?" The young man never came to terms with being gay and committed suicide the day before his 18th birthday.
  14. I'm loving these and agree about context. I also think there are other factors. Loved Cleopatra and then saw the video. The "love of her life" took on new meaning, especially to me having two sons.
  15. I live and breathe music, but am especially moved by the perfectly phrased pared down lyric that cuts right to the bone. Current best example I can give is is Little Bit of Everything by Dawes. What song lyrics do it for you and why?
  16. Dear, You are obsessing. Block him on social media. Step away from social media in general it sets unreal perceptions. People do not put pictures of themselves on there on their bad days or discuss their fights with SOs. Pick new routes for walks. Join MeetUp groups to meet new people. Take up painting again. Get active. A busy mind will keep you from obsessing. I do not know if you are in therapy, but think you should be getting some professional help as well to help you move on as well.
  17. I dream about people I have never met.
  18. I wish I had learned this years ago. I almost ruined a relationship behaving contrarily. Great advice.
