Wearing green, inside and out

Days like today make you want to kick your own ass for wishing that time would pass more quickly. Because that wish gets granted at exactly the wrong moment.

And besides, I really can’t kick my own ass; my foot doesn’t really reach unless I’m pulling it in a yoga pose. 🙂

I’ve been playing with my sexy little black iPod Shuffle for the past two days. I have put together the world’s best playlist. And I crank it up loud so I don’t have to keep hearing what a horrible person I am, even though someone is HAPPY to repeat it when I finally put the thing on pause.

I’ve rediscovered a song that never really meant a lot to me before. But something tells me I’ll be driving away, humming this one for the better part of my journey. …

“Did we hide in the dark ages,
From a vengeful god above?
Were our names too unfamiliar,
To ever speak of love?
Did I cling to every moment with you,
In every parting glance?
An accidental touch,
Did we ever take the chance
For more
I know I’ve loved you before.

When I think of how you know me,
No doubts no thinking twice.
When your smile can be so soothing,
A familiar paradise.
When there’s no one else that makes me whole.
I’m never wanting more.
I get this feeling.
I know I’ve loved you before.”

— Melissa Etheridge, “I’ve Loved You Before

Something tells me that, for all the tears I’ve already cried, I haven’t even gotten started in earnest yet. Or maybe, just maybe, I won’t have to. …

One Lonely Response to Wearing green, inside and out

  1. Jay :

    AMEN…for every heartwrenching moment in life, there is a Melissa Etheridge song. Hail to the queen of rock’n roll. Hail indeed.
