Lyrical quotes

The quotes entry that many of you did has had me thinking about lines from my favorite songs. Line that move me, rock me or touch a nerve. Here are a few of them in no particular order:

1) Well I know we're dying
And there's no sign of a parachute
In this Chapel
Little chapel of love
Can't we get a little grace
And some elegance
No we scream in cathedrals
Why can't it be beautiful
Why does there
Gotta be a sacrifice
~Tori Amos, iieee

2) T
ied down to this bed of shame
You tried to move around the pain but oh
Your soul is anchored

The only comfort is the moving of the river
You enter into me, a lie upon your lips
Offer what you can, I’ll take all that I can get
Only a fool’s here...
~ Sarah McLaughlin, Ice

3) Sometimes the light's all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip its been.
~Grateful Dead, Truckin'

4) When you're sick you seem to think
You've failed eternally
And that the people you let in are only crumbling
When you're sick of thinking life in this recovery
When my decision paved the road
That lies in front of me
~Blue October, Overweight

5) Got to get back up but at your own pace
Got to fill your cup and find the way
Out of your own maze....
Look strong
Like you belong cause you do belong
Whether right or wrong you belong
I'm on your side if you fail at least you tried
To keep your aching celebrating wonder making heart alive...
~Blue October, Inner Glow

6) Healing the blind I promise to let the sun in
Sick of the dark ways we march to the drum and
Jump when they tell us that they wanna to see jumping.
F**k that, I wanna see some fist pumping.
risk something, take back what's yours
say something that you know they might attack you for
cause I'm sick of being treated like I have before
like it's stupid standing for what I'm standing for.
~Linkin Park, Hands Held High

7) I got a
Heart full of pain
Head full of stress
Handful of anger
Held in my chest
Uphill struggle
Blood, sweat and tears
Nothing to gain
Everything to fear
~Linkin Park, Nobody's Listening

8) I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
Theres more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line
The less I seek my source for some definitive
(the less I seek my source)
The closer I am to fine
~Indigo Girls, Closer to Fine

9) My friend tanner she says you know
Me and jesus were of the same heart
The only thing that keeps us distant
Is that I keep fuckin up

I said come on down to chicano city park
And wash your blues away
The beautiful ladies walk right by
You know I never know what to say
~Indigo Girls, Shame on You

10) All of us arent we
Pretty pretenders
Negligent vendors
Arent we precious inside
I have no need for anger
With intimate strangers
And I got nothing to hide
~Indigo Girls

happy Veteran's Day!

This is what I spent the last few hours doing. It's a Veteran's day present for my dad. He served in the Navy during Vietnam.

I'm proud of what I've done, so I'm sharing with my friends. Keep in mind this is all coded by hand, no WYZIWIG editors here! It may look rough in different monitor sizes, so be gentle in your critique, please!

my baby started daycare today

Okay, so she's not a baby, she's 3 1/2. And she's been in other childcare situations before. So this shouldn't be a big deal, right? Then how come I felt like crying when I dropped her off?

Maybe I feel sad because I can't pick her up myself today, I'll be in class and her babysitter is picking her up. Maybe I feel sad because my bright, energetic non-stop talker was wandering around the room like a quiet little ghost before I left. Maybe it's because my baby is no longer my baby but is a big girl now....

I hope she fits in, I hope the kids are nice to her, I hope she has fun, I hope she likes it there.
