I know this is an ever ending topic but I just heard 2 songs that SOOOOO remind me of my MM. They are from Coyote Ugly: "Can't Fight The Moonlight" and "The Right Kind of Wrong" and "Please Remember". Those are my sappy songs.

When I'm angry and need a boost I listen to "Pink"!!!

Here's one I like....

One More Addiction Lyrics

by Natalie Imbruglia

First the good news

it's gonna feel very nice

then the bad news

you gotta pay a heavy price

rip tide, we slide we ride on a deep forbidden sea

underwe go - o so slow

and you're hanging onto me

and I say

oh oh one more addiction in my world

oh one more connection to let go

oh flowing down the river

out of sight forever (from my world)

it's the only thing I know how to do

I reject you

but I can't follow through

I'd forget you

but you'd end up tappin' on my back door

somehow I lost myself

in a tunnel long and black

somewhere, at the end, I pretend

there's a way of turning back



take a breath

let it out

all the things you frown about are meaningless of course,

unless you're doing this for real I guess

I meant to but

I don't know what

is in the way and could I say

it's you I bet

I won't forget

maybe I'm not ready yet

Artist: Blues Traveler

Album: The Mountains Win Again

Title: Stand



I pick up my smile put it in my pocket

Hold it for a while try not to have to drop it

Men are not to cry so how am I to stop it

Keep it all inside dont show how much she rocked ya

CHORUS:

Ooh can you feel the same

Ooh you gotta love the pain

Ooh it looks like rain again

Ooh I feel it comin in

The mountains win again

The mountains win again

Dreams we dreamed at night were never meant to come to life

I cant understand the ease she pulled away her hand

This time in my life I was hurt enough to care

I guess from now on Ill be careful what I share

CHORUS

A pocket is no place for a smile anyway

Someday I will find love again will blow my mind

Maybe it will be that love that got away from me

Is there a line to write that could make you cry tonight

Can you feel the same

Yeah ya gotta love the pain

Ooh it looks like rain again

Ooh feel it comin in

The mountains win again

Ooh the mountains win again

Great song....how do you find these songs. I see so many listed on the boards. I guess I never pay attention to most words. Lately I'm back to my contemporary Christian music....anything else just drives me nuts! Right now I can't stand songs that remind me of him!!!! We're having another discussion today...I'll let you know how it goes. I want to want this to be the END! NC will become easier, b/c our days at work are opposite next week...so that is one full week of NC! Its a start. I probably shouldn't see him today, but I have some things I need to get off my chest.

When I hear a song I like, I go to msn.com and search the artist or the name of the song and "lyrics". There's a lot of sites out there with lyrics to tons of songs. Good luck getting things off your chest if you decide to talk to him.

MM's working this afternoon. I really want to tell him... "Hey, don't surprise with anymore phone calls, etc." because now I'm back to thinking it might be him everytime the phone rings and that drives me crazy. But I'm hesitant to get in touch with him because I feel my resolve melting away. He called me at work yesterday, but I couldn't say anything much because my coworker was 2 feet from me the whole time.

Keep me posted on how things go with you!

What about these two? I found that there are so many Indigo Girls tunes that remind me of my situation & XOW...

Try these:

HOPE ALONE

let's not drag this out

everything's in motion

though i've only ever loved you kind

and with devotion

i remember when i met you

and even from the start

i thought one day you'd probably just come home

and break my heart

it's funny what you know

and still go on pretending

with no good evidence

you'll ever see that happy ending

you

looking for your distance

and sensing my resistance

you had to do your will

i

had to learn the hard way

we were just an empty dream too big

for hope alone to fill

i know i'm a dreamer

(i know that i'm a)

so i'll give you that

(dreamer)

still i hope i'm more than just a place

(still i hope i'm more)

you laid your hat

(than a place you laid your hat)

you're a land of secrets

(you are its only)

its only citizen

(citizen)

and though i paid my dues

(though i paid)

i was never allowed in

(i was never allowed in)

and so i am a stranger

(so i am a stranger)

especially today

(especially today)

as i get sad and lonely

and you get your way

you

were looking for your distance

and sensing my resistance

you had to do your will

i

i had to learn the hard way

that we were just an empty dream too big

for hope alone to fill

holding on for change i know

we never stood a chance

(no we never stood a chance)

so i could only wait

and watch you slip right through my hands

(watch you slip right through my hands)

you

were always looking for your distance

and sensing my resistance

you had to do your will

i

i had to learn the hard way

we were just an empty dream too big

for hope alone to fill

words and music by emily saliers and and annie roboff

++++++++++++++++++++++


and another one,

"GHOST"

there's a letter on the desktop

that i dug out of a drawer

the last truce we ever came to

in our adolescent war

and i start to feel the fever

from the warm air through the screen

you come regular like seasons

shadowing my dreams

and the mississippi's mighty

but it starts in minnesota

at a place that you could walk across

with five steps down

and i guess that's how you started

like a pinprick to my heart

but at this point you rush right through me

and i start to drown

and there's not enough room

in this world for my pain

signals cross and love gets lost

and time passed makes it plain

of all my demon spirits

i need you the most

i'm in love with your ghost

i'm in love with your ghost

dark and dangerous like a secret

that gets whispered in a hush

(don't tell a soul)

when i wake the things i dreamt about you

last night make me blush

(don't tell a soul)

and you kiss me like a lover

then you sting me like a viper

i go follow to the river

play your memory like a piper

and i feel it like a sickness

how this love is killing me

i'd walk into the fingers

of your fire willingly

and dance the edge of sanity

i've never been this close

i'm in love with your ghost

unknowing captor

you never know how much you

pierce my spirit

but i can't touch you

can you hear it

a cry to be free

oh i'm forever under lock and key

as you pass through me

now i see your face before me

i would launch a thousand ships

to bring your heart back to my island

as the sand beneath me slips

as i burn up in your presence

and i know now how it feels

to be weakened like achilles

with you always at my heels

this bitter pill i swallow

is the silence that i keep

it poisons me i can't swim free

the river is too deep

though i'm baptized by your touch

i am no worse than most

in love with your ghost

you are shadowing my dreams

(in love with your ghost)

(in love with your ghost)

(in love with your ghost)

All of their stuff does. You wouldn't believe it. There are others.

Bad night tonight. I can see going and getting the headphones on in a minute.

here's another:

"you've got to show"

yes it's true

i've gotten very

moody over you

don't think i don't

sense your caution

way across the room

or across the phone lines

big black ocean

conversation brief

we can't find

a clear connection

and i can't get relief

why don't we both agree

we're both afraid

and too afraid to say

if i say

count to three

(count to three)

move toward me

(move toward me)

would you meet me half the way

(would you meet me)

there are a thousand things about me

i want only you to know

but i can't go there alone

you've got to show

while you occupy me

i command my dreams

each day

to bring you in me

even thinly

as the morning chases you away

i half believe

if i just picture us

we will come true

wishful thinking

or my hopes sinking

half depends on you

why don't we both agree

(why don't we both agree)

we're both afraid

and too afraid to say

(too afraid to say)

if i say

count to three

(count to three)

move toward me

(move toward me)

would you meet me half the way

(would you meet me)

there are a thousand things about me

i want only you to know

but i can't got there alone

you've got to show me

(show me)

you are fully alive

if you want to fly

take this dive

if you want to kiss

kiss for real

i'll give you back everything you feel

drive in space

that peaceful place

you'd be my secret sharer

front and back

and all around

the thin margin of error

ah move too fast

or move too slow

or somewhere in between

or navigate your

perfect distance

your getaway is clean

why don't we both agree

that we're both afraid

and we're too afraid to say

if i say

count to three

and move toward me

would you meet me half way

cause there are a thousand things about me

i want only you to know

i want only you to know

i want only you to know

but i can't got there alone

you've got to show

honey - go find your wedding songs.

quit dwelling and wallowing. it's a bad night, i know... i'm there myself. but we've got to get back to our families. when we go to our others, we are taking ourselves away from the people who love us the most - even if they don't show it all the time.

you said it best. we sometimes come here and relive our pain. replace the pain. replace those feelings with the love you feel for your wife. if you can't get it from your wife, find a memory of your family and replace it with that. a vacation when you all had a great time. a moment with your daughter. a day with your son. a night with your wife.

focus on what you have, not what you don't.

"Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you got til it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

hugs.

Here's a song. "So Yesterday" by Hilary Duff. I know her audience is more geared toward youngsters, but the lyrics seemed empowering to anyone ending a relationship:

You can change your life- if you wanna

You can change your clothes- if you wanna

If you change your mind

Well, that's the way it goes

But I'm gonna keep your jeans

And your old black hat- cause I wanna

They look good on me

You're never gonna get them back

At least not today, not today, not today

'cause



If it's over, let it go and

Come tomorrow it will seem

So yesterday, so yesterday

I'm just a bird that's already flown away

Laugh it off let it go and

When you wake up it will seem

So yesterday, so yesterday

Haven't you heard that I'm gonna be okay

You can say you're bored- if you wanna

You can act real tough- if you wanna

You can say you're torn

But I've heard enough

Thank you... you made my mind up for me

When you started to ignore me

Do you see a single tear

It isn't gonna happen here

At least not today, not today, not today

'cause



If you're over me, I'm already over you

If it's all been done, what is left to do

How can you hang up if the line is dead

If you wanna walk, I'm a step ahead

If you're moving on, I'm already gone

If the light is off then it isn't on

At least not today, not today, not today

'cause
