Neither you nor I'm to blame when all is said and done

Lyrics from Victoria by John Mayer

Don't know why Tori came by
But I could see by the look in her eyes
Tory'd been driving 'round the town for a while
Playing with the thought of leaving
Don't know why, but Tori just smiled
And mentioned something about how you were right
Must have been hard to see through the tears she was hiding

Sugar And Cream

Lyrics from Morning Song by Jewel

Let the phone ring, let's go back to sleep
Let the world spin outside out door, you're the only one that I wanna see
Tell your boss you're sick, hurry, get back in I'm getting cold
Get over here and warm my hands up, boy, it's you they love to hold
And stop thinking about what your sister said
Stop worrying about it, the cat's already been fed
Come on darlin', let's go back to bed
Put the phone machine on hold
Leave the dishes in the sink
Do not answer the door
It's you that I adore-I'm gonna give you some more
We'll sit on the front porch, the sun can warm my feet
You can drink your coffee with sugar and cream
I'll drink my decaf herbal tea
Pretend we're perfect strangers and that we never met...
My how you remind me of a man I used to sleep with
that's a face I'd never forget

Shoot An Apple Off My Head

Lyrics from Clocks by Coldplay

Lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
You've put me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead
Come out of things unsaid, shoot an apple off my head and a
Trouble that can't be named, tigers waiting to be tamed singing
You are, you are

Older Chests

older chests reveal themselves
like a crack in a wall
starting small and grow in time
we all seem to need the help
of someone else to mend that shelf
of too many books
read me your favourite line
papa went to other lands
and found someone who understands
the ticking and the western man's need to cry

To view or investigate. Find 'Look' in your space

Lyrics from I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You by Tom Waits

Well the night does funny things inside a man
These old tom-cat feelings you don't understand,
Well I turn around to look at you, you light a cigarette,
I wish I had the guts to bum one, but we've never met,
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you
I can see that you are lonesome just like me,
And it being late, you'd like some some company,
Well I turn around to look at you, and you look back at me,
The guy you're with has up and split, the chair next to you's free,
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me
Now it's closing time, the music's fading out
Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout.
Well I turn around to look at you, you're nowhere to be found,
I search the place for your lost face, guess I'll have another round
And I think that I just fell in love with you

Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years!

Welcome To My World

HSMS ( a daily prompt to get your camera into action) has changed, there is a new website and joining Anita in the prompts we have SusyB and Andrew, hence the new name "Her Space, My Space, His Space" or HSMSHS for short. The new website looks fantastic and I am really looking forward to the input from SusyB and Andrew.
For their launch day the first prompt is Welcome
An instant or manner of greeting someone. Show us 'welcome' in your space today.

Lyrics from Welcome To My World by Elvis

Welcome to my world,
Won't you come on in
Miracles, I guess
Still happen now and then
Step into my heart
Leave your cares behind
Welcome to my world
Built with you in mind

Today's prompt has distracted me from some bad news I got yesterday. My dog Belle, who I have had since she was six weeks old, has a brain tumour. She has been acting strangely for a few weeks and yesterdays visit to the vets gave us the horrible news. She has been my constant friend and companion throughout my illness, always by my side and always there with a wonderful welcome for everyone. We are going to have to make the decision when to let her go, yesterday she was really bad, today she is good. I will not let her suffer but my heart breaks at the thought of the day when she will no longer be here.
