These last few weeks have been  so hard to cope  with

Days so dark  I have not wanted  to wake up or  even live.

Ties so deep that  they should  never be tested

Pulled  so taught  while  they argued  and each other  bested!


So much illness too in the family  I am finding  so hard  to bare

There is  no way I can close  my  eyes and ears to it, truth is I really  care.

Christmas  presses closer  like an evil leach. Dragging me down to hell

It sucks my  heart out and shreds  my soul, stress that  I can’t  quell.


Well I can take  no more  of  this.

I shall retreat  in to  my  music, headphones bliss.

Run I  shall run, dance I shall dance in  my  head

I shall float away  before it  all explodes in y  head!

Who better  to help  me  than Immie .   She is amazing  she tells  my life   as it is!

Sparks might fly, in no time.
It’s a delayed reaction of the third kind. (ooh)
I’m so ready for this.
Shrink-wrapped tones, I can face the music.
Stop matters bonding us way beyond
Our best by-days.

You know we’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, so no hard feelings.
We’ve done all we could and all again. I’m done pretending.
Let’s quit while we’re still friends.

Making up stories that grew to be too tall,
My fortress to forget couldn’t take anymore.
You nearly watched me ruin everything, everything!
There’s a number one rule of don’t-do’s.
Well we knew it all too well.
You were supposed to be looking out for me!
Have you any idea how difficult it’s been?

You know we’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, so no hard feelings.
We’ve done all we could, and all again. Let’s save ourselves a sorry ending.
You know we’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, but this is as far as we can stretch.
Let’s stop pretending, stop pretending.
And quit while we’re still friends

Well I was so young, misguided maybe.
But still this hands over my every pen to paper.
And this all started with a song.
Let this be our last one.
Drop, drop. Bridge, bridge!

We’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, but this is as far as we can stretch.
Stop pretending!
And quit while we’re still friends.

I wish you well.
I wish you well… (I wish you well, wish you well, wish you well)

Wish you well, I wish you well, I won’t tell if you won’t tell.
I won’t hold it against you if you bow out gracefully. (gracefully)
Can we just not drag this out, please?
I wish you well, I wish you well, I won’t tell if you won’t tell.
I won’t hold it against you if you bow out gracefully, (do it gracefully!)
Can we just not drag this out?

    Cool video by Immi, nice energetic scenes of NYC!
    Be kind to yourself, take frequent naps, rest.
    By all means play music often, and dance! 🙂

    Oh how I wish I could make things bright and shiny and take the grey thoughts and throw them over the fence. I know that’s not possible and a person has to feel what they have to feel. I learned long ago that I had no power over Tom’s feelings. I could only respect them for what they were.
    Winter is my favorite season. I know not many people claim winter but, it’s been my favorite since I was a kid. Hugs to you.
