Serenity

Sometimes we need time alone, to think, to come to conclusions, to get rid of the old and renew ourselves. The water is that for me. Reflections come to me and I can be re-centered.

Serenity by Godsmack

As I sit here and slowly close my eyes
I take another deep breath
And feel the wind pass through my body
I’m the one in your soul
Reflecting inner light
Protect the ones who hold you
Cradling in your inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don’t know
And how do we relight the flame when it’s cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Tragic visions slowly stole my life
Tore away everything
Cheating me out of my time
I’m the one who loves you
No matter wrong or right
And every day I hold you
I hold you with my inner child

I need serenity
In a place where I can hide
I need serenity
Nothing changes, days go by

Where do we go when we just don’t know
And how do we relight the flame when it’s cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Where do we go when we just don’t know
And how do we relight the flame when it’s cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

And how do we relight the flame when it’s cold (I need serenity)
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing (I need serenity)
And when will we learn to control

Vintage

By” NIKI

Speak of the devil, my, oh my
Walk in with that devilish smile
That’s one thing I haven’t seen in a while
(In a while)
How have you been since I called you mine?
You look so good in this light
Got me reminiscin’ ’bout our good times
(Good ol’ times)And I know, I know, I know
We’ve been better off alone
But we laugh about old pictures on your phone and I forget
And you make, you make, you make
It easy like a zephyr
You’re still just the way I remember
Tonight I just wanna hit reverseBeen a year since we finished
Baby, me and you, we vintage
But tonight you make me miss it
And I just wanna dance with you like
It’s summer 1976
Raise my heart rate like it’s interest
Jog my memory on your kisses
For old times sake, you got me singin’
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Got me singin’
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Got me dreamin’Still as charismatic as ever
Comebacks come back clean and clever
Why we ended, I don’t remember
Can’t believe I once said “See U Never”
Wait a minute, my head’s a mess
Please don’t tell me you like my dress
Why am I wishin’ we were wearing less?
Won’t be long before “no” becomes “yes”And you know, you know, you know
All the ways to get to me
As if there were an easy recipe
A bit of hard-to-get, a dash of sweet
So I say, I say, we pay
Tribute to our history
Only reenactin’, no repeats
Here we go again
I’ma handle you with care like you’re antiqueBeen a year since we finished
Baby, me and you, we vintage
But tonight you make me miss it
And I just wanna dance with you like
It’s summer 1976
Raise my heart rate like it’s interest
Jog my memory on your kisses
For old times sake, you got me singin’
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Got me singin’
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Got me dreamin’

“Caged”

These are the darkest clouds
To have surrounded me
Now I find my self alone caught in a cage
There’s no flower to be found in here
Not withering
Or pale to me
Everyone with a friendly face
Seems to hide some secret inside

He told me he loved me
While he laughed in my face
He just led me astray
He took my virtue
I feel so cold inside
Sorrow has frozen my mind

My heart is covered
With thoughts entangled
How could it ever have felt so real?
Is there a place more lonely than I feel within?
Could I have seen?
Could I have known?
I just took it as the truth
Everyone with a friendly face
Seems to hide some secret inside

He told me he loved me
While he laughed in my face
He just led me astray
He took my virtue
I feel so cold inside
Sorrow has frozen my mind

Always there to remind me
It keeps me from believing
That someone might be there
Who’ll free me and never ever leave me

They said don’t see him,
She said his name is Bill,
She’s on a road and its all uphill.She’s a wild one,
With an angel’s face,
She’s a woman child in a state of grace,
When she was three years old on her daddy’s knee,
He said you can be anything you want to be,
She’s a wild one,
Runnin’ free.She loves rock and roll,
They said it’s satan’s tongue,
She thinks they’re too old,
They think she’s too young,
And the battle lines are clearly drawn.She’s a wild one,

And dreams at night,

Smoke Break

Stealing away from the crowd and the noise. Solitude out the backdoor and a much needed smoke break to get me through the night. It’s all a girl needs sometimes.

“Smoke Break” – Carrie Underwood

She’s a small-town, hard-working woman just trying to make a living
Working three jobs, feeding four little mouths in a run-down kitchen
When you never taking nothing and doing nothing but giving
It’s hard to be a good wife and a good mom and a good Christian

She said, “I don’t drink”
“But sometimes I need a stiff drink”
“Sipping from a highball glass”
“Let the world fade away”
She said, “I don’t smoke”
“But sometimes I need a long drag”
“Yeah, I know it might sound bad”
“But sometimes I need a smoke break”

He’s a big-city, hard-working man just trying to climb the ladder
First generation to go to college instead of driving a tractor
Never had nothing handed to him on a silver platter
It’s hard to be a good man, good son, do something good that matters

He said, “I don’t drink”
“But sometimes I wanna pop that top”
“Take a swig and make the world stop”
“And watch it fade away”
He said, “I don’t smoke”
“But sometimes I wanna light it up”
“Yeah, when things get tough”
“Sometimes I need a smoke break, yeah”

So here’s to you and here’s to when the day gets long
Go ahead, I understand if you wanna take a load off

I don’t drink
But sometimes I need a stiff drink
Sipping from a highball glass
Let the world fade away
Yeah, and I don’t smoke
But sometimes I need a long drag
Yeah, I know it might sound bad
But sometimes I need a, sometimes I need a

When the day gets long
When the work’s all done
When the sun sets
When you need to forget
Grab that cup,
Fill it up
Sip it slow
And let it all go

Solitude

I find solitude to refuel me for the coming days. Find a out of the way spot and channel your thoughts. It is during these times I find the answers that have eluded me and my mind quiets so I can regain the peace I often seek.

I Have A Need For Solitude” 

Mary Chapin Carpenter

I have a need
For solitude
I’ll never be
Safe in crowded rooms
I like the sound
Of silence coming on
I come around
When everyone has gone

I have a need
For cool, verdant spaces
Beneath the trees
Secret empty places
Nobody knows
So no one will intrude
I have a need
For solitude

But you can find me, when the light is changing
At that time of day when there’s
Little day remaining
You can find me where I’ve been waiting
Waiting here for you

I never was
The pretty girl in school
I never was
Fast, tough and cool
All I was
All my life it seems
Was hard to love
Harder now to keep

But you can find me, when the light is changing
At that time of day when there’s
Little day remaining

I have a need
For solitude
I’ll never be
Safe in crowded rooms
I like the sound
Of silence coming on
I come around when all the rest have gone…

Wyoming Girl

The chill in the air is crisp and it makes the perfect day for a ride. Bundled up in a jacket and boots, traipsing through the snow and a smile on my face. This is what peace is about.

“Wyoming Girl” – Chris LeDoux

I saw her for the first time when the snow was falling down
And Lord she was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen
Great big green eyes a flashin’ ruby lips a smilin’
Well my heart went pitter patter and I knew it was gonna shatter
If I couldn’t make that little gal my own
You can sing about your sweet Joly Blon
You can sing about them pretty gals down in Tennessee
You can sing your song about that Yellow Rose of Texas
But the one by the Powder River that runs through old Kaycee
That Wyoming girls the only one for me

I’ve been around this big country and I’ve seen a lot of women in my time
Well there ain’t none sweeter and there ain’t none better
Than this little gal I call mine and I thank you Lord for making her my wife
You can sing about…

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Dean Martin

I really can’t stay (but baby, it’s cold outside)
I’ve got to go away (but baby, it’s cold outside)This evening has been (been hoping that you’d drop in)
So very nice (i’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice)My mother will start to worry (beautiful what’s your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (listen to the fireplace roar)So really I’d better scurry (beautiful please don’t hurry)
But maybe just a half a drink more (put some records on while I pour)The neighbors might think (baby, it’s bad out there)
Say what’s in this drink? (no cabs to be had out there)I wish I knew how (your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (i’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell)I ought to say, no, no, no sir (mind if I move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (what’s the sense in hurtin’ my pride?)I really can’t stay (oh baby don’t hold out)
But baby, it’s cold outsideI simply must go (but baby, it’s cold outside)
The answer is no (but baby, it’s cold outside)Your welcome has been(how lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (look out the window at this dawn)My sister will be suspicious (gosh your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door (waves upon the tropical shore)My maiden aunts mind is vicious (gosh your lips are delicious)
But maybe just a cigarette more (never such a blizzard before)I’ve gotta get home(but baby, you’d freeze out there)
Say lend me a coat(it’s up to your knees out there)You’ve really been grand (i thrill when you touch my hand)
But don’t you see? (how can you do this thing to me?)There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (think of my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (if you got pnuemonia and died)I really can’t stay (get over that old out)
Baby, it’s cold
Baby, it’s cold outside

How steadfast are your branches!
Your boughs are green in summer’s clime
And through the snows of wintertime.

That constant faith and hope sublime
Lend strength and comfort through all time.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your boughs can teach a lesson.
