Til My Last Day

People say I'm just a rough boy
I ain't no good for you girl
It's a dead end street, tryin' to love me
Yeah, I'll wreck your world
I can see why they're all talkin'
Lookin' back at my past
I've got a bad name, but a man can change
I'm livin' proof of that

Til my last day, til my last breath
Of everyone that can, I can love you the best
Til my last day, I'll be lovin' you
All the way up, til they lay me down
Six feet under the cold hard ground
Til my last day, I'll be lovin' you

Baby I might meet all my friends
Shoot the bull, have a beer or two
But you know I'll be the first one to leave
In a hurry to get to you
Somewhere deep inside your angel eyes
I found a place to rest,
Don't ever doubt that I'll be around,
And baby don't you ever forget

Til my last day, til my last breath
Of everyone that can, I can love you the best
Til my last day, I'll be lovin' you
All the way up, til they lay me down
Six feet under the cold hard ground
Til my last day, I'll be lovin' you
Darlin' yes I will

Til my last day, til my last breath
Of everyone that can, I can love you the best
Til my last day, I'll be lovin' you
All the way up, til they lay me down
Six feet under the cold hard ground
Til my last day, I'll be lovin' you
Oh babe, til my last day

Beautiful Mess

Going out of my mind these days
Like I’m walking round in a haze
I can’t think straight, I can’t concentrate
And I need to shave

I go to work and I look tired
The boss man said son you gonna get fired
This ain’t your style and behind my coffee cup
I just smile

What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess
I’m in spending all my time with you
There’s nothing else I’d rather do
What a sweet addiction that I’m caught up in
Cause I can’t get enough
Can’t stop the hunger for your love
What a beautiful mess
What a beautiful mess I’m in

This morning put salt in my coffee
I put my shoes on the wrong feet
I’m losin' my mind
I swear, it might be the death of me
But I don’t care

What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess
I’m in spending all my time with you
There’s nothing else I’d rather do
What a sweet addiction that I’m caught up in
Cause I can’t get enough
Can’t stop the hunger for your love
What a beautiful mess
What a beautiful mess I’m in

Is it your eyes, is it your smile
All I know is that your driven me wild

What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess
I’m in spending all my time with you
There’s nothing else I’d rather do
What a sweet addiction that I’m caught up in
Cause I can’t get enough
Can’t stop the hunger for your love
What a beautiful mess
What a beautiful mess I’m in

What a beautiful mess, what a beautiful mess
I’m in spending all my time with you
There’s nothing else I’d rather do
What a sweet addiction that I’m caught up in
Cause I can’t get enough
Can’t stop the hunger for your love
What a beautiful mess
What a beautiful mess I’m in

If Tomorrow Never Comes

Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there's no second chance to tell her how I feel

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she's my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face this world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you're thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

Like a Lake

You are like a deep lake. The outer situation of your life and whatever happens there is the surface of the lake. Sometimes calm, sometimes windy and rough, according to the cycles and seasons. Deep down, however the lake is always undisturbed. You are the whole, not just the surface, and you are in touch with your own depth, which remains absolutely still. You don't resist change by mentally clinging to any situation. Your inner peace does not depend on it. You abide in Being - unchanging, timeless, deathless.

Sparks Fly

The way you move is like a full on rainstorm
And I'm a house of cards
You're the kind of reckless
That should send me runnin'
But I kinda know that I won't get far
And you stood there in front of me
Just close enough to touch
Close enough to hope you couldn't see
What I was thinking of

Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

My mind forgets to remind me
You're a bad idea
You touch me once and it's really something,
You find I'm even better than you imagined I would be.
I'm on my guard for the rest of the world
But with you I know it's no good
And I could wait patiently but I really wish you would...

Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

I run my fingers through your hair and watch the lights go wild.
Just keep on keeping your eyes on me, it's just wrong enough to make it feel right.
And lead me up the staircase
Won't you whisper soft and slow?
I'm captivated by you, baby, like a firework show.

Drop everything now,
Meet me in the pouring rain,
Kiss me on the sidewalk,
Take away the pain
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile.
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile

And the sparks fly...
Oh, baby, smile...
And the sparks fly...

accept it as if you have chosen it.

Create Your Universe


“You create your own universe as you go along.”

-Winston Churchill

 
Winston knew what he was talking about. We do create our own universes as we live our lives, each and every one of us. Our attitudes determine our thoughts, and our thoughts are what attract like things. If our thoughts attract new circumstances, people, and events to take place in our lives, then what are we thinking about? We should be thinking about things that inspire us to reaching our dreams. Most of us unfortunately are thinking about things that stress us out. Like work, our personal problems, money issues, anything that we are concerned about, and it holds us back and it holds us down. We need to stop focusing on these nerve-racking topics. When we think about these bad, stressful thoughts it only puts strain out our bodies. So we need to be conscience of this when it happens and push those thoughts out of our heads. Remove all negative thoughts from your mind. You want to feel only good feelings, and have only positive thoughts for as much as you can help it. Choose what you’d like to create for your universe. Live your dreams; they can become your reality. Let’s live the way we were meant to be. How will your experience be? Remember, you create it as you go along.

Spider Dreams

In the last week, including last night, I have had two separate dreams of spiders which have caused me to jump up scared out of my sleep. So twice now I have had spider dreams that have literally scared me awake out of my sleep, jumping up and waking my spouse as well. So, believing in metaphysical subjects I wanted to look up what it meant to have nightmares of spiders. So I thought I would share. Here are some meanings from a few websites:



Spiders

To see a spider in your dream indicates that you are feeling like an outsider in some situation. Or perhaps you want to keep your distance and stay away from an alluring and tempting situation.  The spider is also symbolic of feminine power or an overbearing mother figure in your life. Alternatively, a spider refers to a powerful force protecting you against  your self-destructive behavior.
If you kill a spider in your dream, then it symbolizes misfortune and bad luck.
To see a spider spinning a web in your dream signifies that you will be rewarded for your hard work. You will be promoted in your job or recognized for your achievement in a difficult task.  Spiders are also a symbol of creativity due to the intricate webs they spin. 
On a negative note, spiders may indicate a feeling of being entangled or trapped in a sticky or clingy relationship. It represents some ensnaring and controlling force. You feel that someone or some situation is sucking the life right out of you. 
Alternatively, if a spider is spinning a web in your dream, then it could be a metaphor for the world wide web and global communication.
To see a spider climbing up a wall in your dream denotes that your desires will be soon be realized.
To see spider eggs in a web suggest that you are not able to fully acknowledge your potential. You are being held back from expressing yourself. 
To dream that you are bitten by a spider represents a conflict with your mother or some dominant female figure in your life. The dream may be a metaphor for a devouring mother or the feminine power to possess and entrap. Perhaps you are feeling trapped by some relationship. 
To eat a spider or dream that a spider is in your mouth symbolizes your control over a situation. You are not afraid to exert your dominance in a relationship.


Spiders

All spiders except tarantulas are omens of good luck. If you see a spider climbing the wall you will have your dearest wish come true and if you see a spider spinning a web you will have an increase in your income due to hard work. A large spider sitting on a telephone shows you will have a phone call that will benefit you greatly. The larger the spider, the bigger the rewards. 


Spiders

To dream of a spider denotes that you are being ignored and overlooked by others. Perhaps you feel that it is best to avoid someone or something that will only influence you negatively. The spider also represents female strengths and intensity. It may be implying that there is some entity trying to keep you safe from your own actions. If you kill a spider, it indicates that you will soon face hardships and obstacles.

To see a spider spinning a web implies that your energies and exertions will result in great gifts. This can be in the form of career advancement, elevation in social status, or prosperity. Spiders represent imagination and artistic nature.

On a negative note, spiders may suggest that you feel stuck in a negative relationship. Perhaps your significant other is being too dependent on you. It can indicate that you are being influenced by someone or something that is detrimental to your happiness or safety.

To see a spider climbing up a wall in your dream implies that you will achieve your goals in the near future.

To dream that you are bitten by a spider symbolizes an issue between you and a female associate. You may be feeling entangled in a relationship that you no longer want to be a part of. 



Spider
 
To dream of a spider, denotes that you will be careful and energetic
in your labors, and fortune will be amassed to pleasing proportions.
To see one building its web, foretells that you will be happy
and secure in your own home.
To kill one, signifies quarrels with your wife or sweetheart.
If one bites you, you will be the victim of unfaithfulness and will suffer
from enemies in your business.
If you dream that you see many spiders hanging in their webs around you,
foretells most favorable conditions, fortune, good health and friends.
To dream of a large spider confronting you, signifies that your elevation
to fortune will be swift, unless you are in dangerous contact.
To dream that you see a very large spider and a small one coming
towards you, denotes that you will be prosperous, and that you
will feel for a time that you are immensely successful; but if
the large one bites you, enemies will steal away your good fortune.
If the little one bites you, you will be harassed with little spites
and jealousies. To imagine that you are running from a large spider,
denotes you will lose fortune in slighting opportunities.
If you kill the spider you will eventually come into fair estate.
If it afterwards returns to life and pursues you, you will be
oppressed by sickness and wavering fortunes.
For a young woman to dream she sees gold spiders crawling around her,
foretells that her fortune and prospect for happiness will improve,
and new friends will surround her.


(In Order)


Do you ever have reoccurring dreams? Maybe some have just really stuck with you. Have you ever been curious? What do your dreams say about you and your thoughts? Check it out for yourself at one of the links above, or check any search engine. There are also many books on the meanings of different dream topics. Broaden your knowledge and see what they have to say about you. You may be genuinely surprised.

Live a Little


Stressed out, running late, racing down the interstate
Spilled hot coffee down the front of my jeans
It's work, work, pay the rent, money and my time's spent
Not a minute left for me to be me
Been going like nothing can wait
I gotta get my priorities straight
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little, love a lot
Friday night, here we go, do a little do-si-do
Kick back, have a laugh, catch my breath
Tell the band, slow it down, there she is, think I found
Maybe Miss Wonderful, I haven't met yet

It just hit me like a wrecking ball
She's giving me a wake up call
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little, love a lot
Step back, smell the rose, feel the sand between your toes
Unplug, unwind, step out in the sunshine
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Find a girl that brings my whole world to a stop
Live a little
I need to live a little, have some fun
Take some time, waste it on number one
Take the girl, get a map and pick any old dot
Live a little, we need to live a little, love a lot

Just Got Started Lovin' You

You don't have to go now honey
Call and tell 'em you won't be in today
Baby there ain't nothin' at the office
So important it can't wait
I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

What's the point in fightin' what we're feelin'
We both know we'll never win
Ain't this what we're missin'
Let's just stop all this resistin' and give in
Let me wrap my arms around you
You know you don't want to leave this room
Come back and let me hold you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

What can I say I've never felt this way
Girl you're like a dream come true
After all the love we've made
It sure would be a shame
If we let this moment end so soon

So won't you lay back down beside me
Girl just like I know you're wantin' to
Trust me when I tell you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

I'm thankful for the weekend
But two days in heaven just ain't gonna do
This is gonna take forever darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you
Come back and let me hold you darlin'
Girl I just got started lovin' you

Words of Advice From Paula Abdul

  • You can’t get to where you want to be unless you can accept where you’re at.
  • Whatever your plans are today, smile, say hello, and open the door for someone.
  • Just “Stick to it” – whatever your goals and dreams are for this day, this week, this year, this life.
  • What you don’t like, only you have the power to change.
  • If you avoid situations where you might be told ‘”No,” how will you get to your “Yes?” This so-called rejection process is part of success.
  • When taking care of others, don’t forget to nurture yourself. You cannot give if you yourself have been depleted.
  • Give yourself a quiet moment alone today and just breathe. Remember, there’s power in pause.

-Paula Abdul

Which Finger Print are You?

Arches

Indicates a practical, reliable, and trustworthy personality. This person is clever with their hands and may have a job that involves making things. They are grounded and realistic, but can be stubborn, especially in the face of change. Reluctant to make big alterations in life.



Whorls

Extraordinary in some way. They may have a special skill, or might have devoted their life to a particular cause, and treads their own path through life rather than following someone's else's lead. Highly individualistic, which can set them apart from others.



Loops

An easy-going and sociable person. Tactful and fits in well with others, and is good at reaching compromises when necessary. They prefer to go with the flow rather than stand out from the crowd, which can make them popular, but can also reduce individuality.



Tented Arches

These look like ordinary arches, but have a little vertical line in the middle of the arch. Tented arches have the same basic meaning as ordinary arches, but indicate much more enthusiasm about life. This person is also much more receptive to change than someone with ordinary arches.





Composite Whorls

This is when two loops are wrapped around each other. A composite whorl has a similar meaning to an ordinary whorl, but also shows someone who sees two sides to every story. This trait can be very useful, but it can also make the person indecisive.








Other Loops (look at your dominant hand)

A. Loop of Seriousness
B. Loop of Humor




A.) Loop of Seriousness

If it is present, it shows someone who is driven by a particular goal, especially if it appears on both hands. In this case the person will end up devoting their whole life to this all-consuming interest.


B.) Loop of Humor

It shows someone who is optimistic and has a sense of humor. They are cheerful, popular and very diplomatic.

I Love You This Big


I know I'm still young
But, I know how I feel
I might not have too much experience
But, I know love is real.

By the way my heart starts pounding
When I look into your eyes
I might look a little silly
Standing with my arms stretched open wide.

I love you this big
Eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

I'll love you to the moon and back
I'll love you all the time
Deeper than the ocean
And higher than the pines.

Cause girl, you do something to me
Deep down in my heart
I know I look a little crazy
Standing with my arms stretched all apart.

I love you this big
Eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

So much bigger than I ever dreamed my heart ever would
I love you this big
And I'd write your name in stars across the sky
If I could, I would

I love you this big
Oh, eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

I love you this big
Oh, eyes have never seen... this big
No-one's ever dreamed... this big
And I'll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I'll try
I love you this big

San Francisco, California, United States


This

Got a baby girl sleeping in my bedroom
And her mama laughing in my arms
There's the sound of rain on the rooftop
And the game's about to start

I don't really know how I got here
But I'm sure glad that I did
And it's crazy to think that one little thing
Could've changed all of it

Maybe it didn't turn out like I planned
Maybe that's why I'm such, such a lucky man

For every stoplight I didn't make
Every chance I did or I didn't take
All the nights I went too far
All the girls that broke my heart
All the doors that I had to close
All the things I knew but I didn't know
Thank God for all I missed
Cause it led me here to
This

Like the girl that I loved in high school
Who said she could do better
Or that college I wanted to go to
'Til I got that letter

All the fights and the tears and the heartache
I thought I'd never get through
And the moment I almost gave up
All lead me here to you

I didn't understand it way back when
But sitting here right now it all makes perfect sense

How I cried when my mama passed away
But now I've got an angel looking out for me today
So nothing's a mistake

It led me here to
This
