Sometimes you love a person so much you have to walk away.  Sometimes, for them; sometimes for you.  This song reminds me of that…

My wife and I were walking our dog this morning and a “techno / hopped-up” version of this classic R&B song was blasting out of a garage.  I HAD to listen to the original – so I thought I’d share it…
Enjoy!  (The lyrics are also available on my “poems / song lyrics and videos” page.)

I grew up with divorced parents, back in the day when 90% of marriages / parents stayed together.  My mom raised my sister, brother and me all on her own.  It was difficult.  We were a handful.  I appreciate it more every year (particularly now that my own three are full grown).  The song / video below is about a dad who looks after his son.  When I hear it, though, I hear a song about a parent / provider who looks after his (or her) children.  Happy 92nd Birthday, mom.  Thanks for being my role model.
Love,
Kevin

The towels were so thick there I could hardly close my suitcase.

[Today my wife will be boarding a jet to go visit her family back in Liverpool.  Her mum isn’t doing too well these days and this may be Hil’s last chance to be with her before her mum passes.  The trip will be sad for Hil and lonely for me as she will be away for seven weeks.  As with every separation, I miss her before she has even gone.  Sometimes, I’m just silly that way…
PS:  Today’s post title is a line from the song: “Ferry Cross The Mersey“, by Gerry and the Pacemakers.  Liverpool sits on the north shore of the River Mersey estuary.  LOL  …And so ends the combo musical lyrics and geography lesson for today.  —  KMAB]

To keep ourselves totally apart so as not to become sullied is the most sullied thing of all.

The deepest need of man is the need to overcome his separateness, to leave the prison of his aloneness.

Some songs just make me feel happy…

Send Me On My Way

Performed by:  Rusted Root
Songwriters:  James Di Spirito, James Donovan, Jenn Wertz, Jim Dispirito, Jim Donovan, John Buynak, Liz Berlin, Michael Glabicki and Patrick Norman
[The group was asked about the lyrics to this song and Glabicki said some non-sense sounds / phrases were used as placeholders until real lyrics could be added, but the song sounded “right” the way it was, so they produced the song without replacing the sounds with real words / lyrics.  Chaos theory at its best!  —  KMAB]

By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.

LOL!!  Sometimes it’s difficult making decisions about what song / video to put as the Anniversary / Birthday / Holiday tune.  This was my “alternate” song for a couple of days ago when Hil and I had our 34th wedding anniversary.  It wasn’t that I liked this song less; just that I’d liked the one I eventually chose (“I Can Love You Like That“) for much longer…
And the lyrics I particularly liked:
Every time I think I’m falling
I know you’re falling too
There’s no doubt you’re all in
If you ever think you’re falling
You know I’ll catch you too
‘Cause all I am is you

If I Had a Hammer

If I had a hammer
I’d hammer in the morning
I’d hammer in the evening
All over this land
I’d hammer out danger
I’d hammer out a warning
I’d hammer out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, uh
If I had a bell
I’d ring it in the morning
I’d ring it in the evening
All over this land
I’d ring out danger
I’d ring out a warning
I’d ring out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
If I had a song
I’d sing it in the morning
I’d sing it in the evening
All over this land
I’d sing out danger
I’d sing of out a warning
I’d sing out the love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
Well, I’ve got a hammer
And I’ve got a bell
And I’ve got a song to sing
All over this land
It’s the hammer of justice
It’s the bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
It’s a hammer of justice
It’s a bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
Performed by: Peter, Paul and Mary
Songwriters: Lee Hays / Pete Seeger

“(You’re My) Soul And Inspiration”

Girl,
I can’t let you do this
Let you walk away
Girl,
how can I live through this?
When you’re all I wake up for each day baby
You’re my soul
and my heart’s inspiration
You’re all I got
to get me by
You’re my soul
and my heart’s inspiration
Without you baby
what good am I?
I never had much going
But at least I had you
How can you walk out knowing
I ain’t got nothing left if you do, baby
You’re my soul
and my heart’s inspiration
You’re all I got
to get me by
You’re my soul
and my heart’s inspiration
Without you baby
what good am I?
Oh, what good am I?
Baby,
I can’t make it without you
And I’m,
I’m telling you honey
You’re my reason
for laughing,
for crying
For living
and for dying
Baby,
I can’t make it without you
Please,
I’m begging you baby
If you go
it will kill me,
I swear it
Girl,
I just can’t bear it
You’re my soul
and my heart’s inspiration
You’re all I got
to get me by
You’re my soul
and my heart’s inspiration
Without you baby
what good am I?
What good am I?
Mmmmm

Now Daddy didn’t like trouble,
But if it came along
Everyone that knew him knew
Which side that he’d be on
He never was a hero,
Or this county’s shinin’ light
But you could always find him
Standing up
For what he thought was right
He’d say you’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what’s right
And uphold your family name
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
Now we might have been better off
Or owned a bigger house
If Daddy had done more givin’ in
Or a little more backing down
But we always had plenty
Just living his advice
Whatever you do today
You’ll have to sleep with tonight
He’d say you’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what’s right
And uphold your family name
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
Now I know that things are different than
They were in Daddy’s days
But I still believe
What makes a man
Really hasn’t changed
He’d say you’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to be your own man
Not a puppet on a string
Never compromise what’s right
And uphold your family name
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything
You’ve got to stand for something
Or you’ll fall for anything.
