the longest way

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

(Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can)

I’d love to take my time
I’d let myself unwind
Cause sometimes it feels these wheels
Keep spinning at the speed of sound

I’d take the scenic route
Ain’t that what life’s about
I would stop and smell
Each and every single rose I found

I’m so tired of saying someday that we’ll do it
Grab the keys get in the car and let’s get to it

Let’s head north or east or west or south
Just as long as we go now
Let’s let these headlights slice the night away
Til the sun comes out
If all the fun’s in getting there
Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can

My heart’s restless but it’s true
When it comes to loving you
And that ain’t never gonna change
No matter where we are

This old world keeps laughing like it’s got us
Don’t know why we ever let it stop us

Let’s head north or east or west or south
Just as long as we go now
Let’s let these headlights slice the night away
Til the sun comes out
If all the fun’s in getting there
Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can

Let’s head north or east or west or south
North or east or west or south
Just as long as we go now
Let’s let these headlights slice the night away
Til the sun comes out
If all the fun’s in getting there
Then baby, I have got a plan
Let’s hit the road
C’mon let’s go
Let’s take the longest way we can

The longest way
Hey
The longest way
Hey
The longest way

dear mr president

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

(I know this song is about George W Bush, but it’s impossible not to think/ask the same things these days.)

Dear Mr. President,
Come take a walk with me.
Let’s pretend we’re just two people and
You’re not better than me.
I’d like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?

Dear Mr. President,
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
‘No child is left behind’?
We’re not dumb, and we’re not blind
They’re all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell

What kind of father would take his own daughter’s rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
I can only imagine what the First Lady has to say
You’ve come a long way from whiskey and cocaine

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye?

Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you ’bout hard work:
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you ’bout hard work, hard work, hard work
You don’t know nothing ’bout hard work, hard work, hard work
Ooh

How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President,
You’d never take a walk with me,
Would you?

her diamonds

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

“Oh what the hell” she says
“I just can’t win for losing”
And she lays back down
Man there’s so many times
I don’t know what I’m doin’
Like I don’t know now

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Says “it’s funny how the night
Can make you blind”
I can just imagine
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
But if she feels bad, then I do too
So I let her be

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down
Way down

Well she sits down and stares into the distance
And it takes all night
And I know I could break her concentration
But it don’t feel right

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Sits down on the bed and starts to cry
And there’s something less about her
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
So I sit down and I cry too
But don’t let her see

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She shuts out the night
Tries to close her eyes
If she can find daylight
Then she’ll be alright
She’ll be alright
Just not tonight

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling

“Oh, I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more) no more
(No more)
Diamonds falling down
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more, no more, no more, no more)
Diamonds falling down, yeah
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No, no, no, no)
Oh diamonds fall, and oh her diamonds
Diamonds falling down
I can’t take these diamonds falling down
