I've spent so much time reading everyone else's blogs lately that I haven't taken time to write in my own. So, now I'm taking time. I was going through an old journal (like, 1992?), and found a couple of "songs" I wrote back then. They're pretty bad, but seem to reflect something of what I was feeling back then. I'll stick my ego out on the limb and share the better of the two. Just remember, I warned you!
I was adrift, alone in a fog Floating along, never touching dry land I had no anchor, no place to hold onto You came along and you gave me your hand
CHORUS: Don't need a man to make me feel happy Don't need a man to make me feel blue Just want someone to share my life with I'm taking a chance that the someone is you
Life's day-to-day was bringing me down Little by little, I was just getting through You brought the spark back to my life I felt so old, now everything is brand new
I see your eyes so full of love It fills me with joy, just having you near I could get by without you around, I guess But life's so much better whenever you're here
I told you! It's not the worst thing I ever read, I guess, but it's no Longfellow. I forget who it was intended for, even.
