Songs to share with spouse in rebuilding

My spouse and her OM had songs. As part of rebuilding, my spouse and I stopped listening to the radio because I learned what they were and each time they came on, it broke my heart. So we found new songs that represented saying "I'm Sorry." And "Forgiveness."

Now those songs remind us of that hard period. We are looking for new songs. Here are two of mine.

I'm older than you, so my choices are different.

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
You've been out ridin' fences,
for so long - now.
Ohh you're a hard one.
I know that you've got your reasons.
These things that are pleasin'you
Can hurt you somehow.

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy
She'll beat you if she's able.
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet.
Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table.
But you only want the ones
That you can't get.


I'm the last of eight kids so I grew up with 60's and 70's music in the house. Interesting that it too a new millenia for me to understand what a lot of those songs were talking about. I guess that's why I'm turning to a new generation for hope.


How We Operate, by Gomez


Please come here
Come right on over
And when we collide
we'll see what gets left over


The way that we've been speaking now
I swear that we'd be friends, I swear
'Cos all these little deals go down with
Little consequences, we share, we share

Turn me inside out and upside down
And try to see things my way
Turn a new page, tear the old one out
And I'll try to see things your way


Tori Amos


I got something to say you know
But nothing comes
Yes I know what you think of me
You never shut-up
Yeah I can hear that

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice
And it's been here
Silent All These Years

So you found a girl
Who thinks really deep thougts
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts
Boy you best pray that I bleed real soon
How's that thought for you


...


Well I love the way we communicate
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
Let's hear what you think of me now
But baby don't look up
The sky is falling ...
It's your turn now to stand where I stand
Everybody lookin' at you here
Take hold of my hand
Yeah I can hear them
