It’s a little scary how accurate this damn thing is, huh? 

Tied Together With a Smile is one of my very favorite songs, and in a way, it is my secret, except it’s not much of a secret. I try to be that strong one, but the smile doesn’t usually tie me together very well.
Seems the only one who doesn’t see your beauty
Is the face in the mirror
Looking back at you
  You walk around here thinking you’re not pretty
But that’s not true,
Cause I know you…

Hold on,
Baby, you’re losing it
The water’s high, you’re jumping into it
And letting go…
And no one knows

That you cry, but you don’t tell anyone
That you might not be the golden one
And you’re tied together with a smile
But you’re coming undone

I guess it’s true that love was all you wanted
Cause you’re
Giving it away like it’s extra change
Hoping it will end up in his pocket

But he leaves you out like a penny in the rain
Oh, cause it’s not his price to pay

Its Not his price to pay…

Hold on,
Baby, you’re losing it
The water’s high, you’re jumping into it
And letting go…
And no one knows
That you cry, but you don’t tell anyone
That you might not be the golden one

And you’re tied together with a smile
But you’re coming undone
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh

Hold on,
Baby, you’re losing it
The water’s high, you’re jumping into it
And letting go…
And no one knows

That you cry, but you don’t tell anyone
That you might not be the golden one

You’re tied together with a smile
But you’re coming undone…
Oh, oh, oh, oh

You’re tied together with a smile
But you’re coming undone…
Oh, oh, oh

Goodbye, baby
With a smile, baby, baby

Oh, oh

Too Tired

  … for a real post, so here’s some Kenny Chesney:

There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul 
A restlessness that I can’t seem to tame 
Thunder and lightning follow everywhere I go 
There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul. 

There’s a hurricane that’s raging through my blood 
I can’t find a way to calm the sea 
Maybe I’ll find someday the waters aren’t so rushed 
Right now they’ve got the best of me 
And oh, it’s been a long, long time 
Since I had real peace of mind 
So I’m just going to sit right here 
In this old chair till this storm rolls by. 

Oh, maybe it’s just the way I am 
Maybe I won’t ever change 
So I’m just going to sit right here 
In this old chair and just soak up the rain. 

There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul 
Every time I think it’s gone away 
Dark clouds gather, that old wind begins to blow 
The sun’s going to shine someday I hope 

There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul, in my soul.

Tomorrow is a Long Time

Nickel Creek

If today was not an endless highway
If tonight was not a crooked trail
If tomorrow wasn’t such a long time
Then lonesome would mean nothing to me at all

Yes, and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear his heart softly pounding
Yes, and only if he was lying by me
Would I lie in my bed once again

I can’t see my reflection in the waters
I can’t speak the sounds that show no pain
I can’t hear the echo of my footsteps
Or remember the sound of my own name

Yes, and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear his heart softly pounding
Yes, and only if he was lying by me
Would I lie in my bed once again

There’s beauty in that silver singing river
There’s beauty in that sunrise in the sky
But none of these and nothing else can touch the beauty
That I remember in my true love’s eyes

Yes, and only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear his heart softly pounding
Yes, and only if he was lying by me
Would I lie in my bed once again

My girl America is just a youth is this world
Her smile is more precious than the sparkle of pearls
And though her age reads she’s just a young girl
The age behind her eyes show the pain that she’s swirled
Through the hand that’s been dealt though it’s quiet as kept
The weight was all felt last night when she slept
And as she crept into the dreams of the things of her past
Seems to have grown so fast, way beyond her own class
Though they’re right there with her, her brothers and her sisters
A natural born leader even when her peers dis her
My girl, she’s at a crossroads, people praying for her
Some are preying on her magazine ads, sex, drama
Smoking marijuana, longing for a father to call her, ‘daughter’
She’s part of a generation longing for reconciliation
And this future that they’re facing and this poison that they’re tasting
My girl, I know this love that your chasing

My girl America’s crying when she’s lying on her bed at night
I can see that she’s screaming when she’s dreaming for her freedom
My girl America’s dying while she’s trying just to stop this fight
Don’t stop believing, my girl America

Boys with hungry eyes have been beating her door
Telling her that’s what she’s for, trying to rob at her core
Then leave calling her a whore, but still she knows there’s more
I know she knows there’s more because there is a voice she can’t ignore
‘Cause it was founded in the foundations, from the day of her creation
In God we trust engraved on the treasures of her nation
And the void that the boys can’t fill
With the tipping of the bottle or the popping of the pill
But still most of her friends don’t care as they glare
Ready to drown down the funnel as they frown down the tunnel
They stumble and the tumble breaking down into rubble
My girl America, stop can’t you see
It’s not the circumstances that determine who you’re gonna be
But how you deal with these problems and pains that come your way

It’s for you that I pray with hope for a brighter day
And so I say, your deliverance is coming

Faith like a child from your first birth
You left it in the dirt on your worst hurt
And I see each tear and every scar
The hands that have held you where you are
And I can see we’ve strayed so far
A king born under that morning star
As a crown of thorns was placed to erase
Each tear that’s touched your face
And his palms and sides where pierced with spears
He hung in love just to draw you near
My girl, out of this whole world
Can’t you see this is where we started
