Don’t You Want Me

Favorite Line(s):
I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
That much is true
But even then I knew I’d find a much better place
Either with or without you

It is sometimes said that scientists are unromantic, that their passion to figure out robs the world of beauty and mystery.  But is it not stirring to understand how the world actually works — that white light is made of colors, that color is the way we perceive the wavelengths of light, that transparent air reflects light, that in so doing it discriminates among the waves, and that the sky is blue for the same reason that the sunset is red?  It does no harm to the romance of the sunset to know a little bit about it.

Hey Good Lookin’

Favorite Line(s):
I got a hot rod Ford,
And a two dollar bill
And I know a spot
Right over the hill
There’s soda pop
And the dancing’s free
So, if you wanna have fun
Come along with me

Love brings a voiding of our ego, which allows us to fill it anew.  Unless your loving attains to this void or self-emptiness, you have no chance for renewal.  This is what Christ meant when he said unless you die, you cannot be reborn or begin anew.
    —     Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s

Secret Garden

Favorite Line(s):
She’ll lead you down a path
There will be tenderness in the air
She’ll let you come just far enough
So you know she’s really there
Then she’ll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She’s got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay
A million miles away

It’s All Coming Back To Me Now

Favorite Line(s):
But when you touch me like this
And you hold me like that
I just have to admit
That it’s all coming back to me

And I hold you like that
It’s so hard to believe but
It’s all coming back to me
It’s all coming back
It’s all coming back to me now

I continue to run because I like running.  I like to run even though I’m not, by their standards, any good at it.  What matters to me is that I like to run, not what they think about my running.

I Threw It All Away

Favorite Line(s):
So if you find someone that
Gives you all of her love
Take it to your heart,
Don’t let it stray
For one thing that’s certain
You will surely be a-hurtin’
If you throw it all away
If you throw it all away

Precious And Few

Favorite Line(s):
Baby, it’s you on my mind,
Your love is so rare
Being with you
Is a feeling I just can’t compare
And if I can’t hold you in my arms,
It just wouldn’t be fair
‘Cause precious and few
Are the moments we two can share
