we get on

..So I went to that party everyone they kind of arty
and I was wearing this dress 'cause I wanted to impress
but I wasn't sure if I looked my best 'cause I was so nervouse
but I carried on regardless strutting through each room trying to find you
and when I saw you kissing that girl
my heart it shattered
and my eyes they watered and when i tried to speak i stuttered
and my friends were like 'whatever you'll find someone better
his eyes are way too close together and we never even liked him from the start
and nows he's with a tart
he said she's easy and not your type cause you deserve some real nice guy'

I don't ever dream about you and me
I don't ever make up stuff about us that would be classed as insanity
I don't ever drive past your house to see if you're in
I don't ever have an opinion on that tramp you are still seeing
I don't know your timetable

I don't know your face off by heart
but I must admit that there is still a part of me,
that thinks that we might get on
that we could get on
that we should get on..

I love Kate Nash. She makes me smile..

Happy Monday :)

"in spite of the crazy times we're in, there's a lot to be thankful for. second chances. third chances. 734th chances. sunsets. sunrises. sunsets. And the passing of time begins to make a lot more sense to me in the context of grace instead of karma. Under a rule where love triumphs over justice..."

My lovely friend Amanda from Here Comes the Sun tagged me

the rules: share six things that make you happy and tag six amazing starry-eyed bloggers!

So first off I tag;
tellings of the beautiful life
Cupcakes, Daisies & Sunday Afternoons
i was a kaleidoscope
moments suspended in time

And six things that make me happy are:

1. the sky. always.. i can stare at it for hours. especially at night, counting shooting stars and naming satelites.

2. words.. lyrics, scriptures, letters.

3. photos.. of pretty things that inspire, of my friends and family, the ones i love the most.

4. dancing and singing at the top of my lungs, can you say release?

5. the beach.. the ocean, sand between my toes, sun(hopefully) on my face... ditto.

6. starbucks.. its not the best coffee in the world but i love the iced drinks, they make me happy.

im doing really well. as in, im happy. ahh.. yeah :)

welcome 2009

happy new year.. big emphasis on the happy.. im so excited for this year.

new perspective. lifes better when you take deep breaths. lie under the stars. jumping in the ocean. not worrying about the things i cant change. fighting the battles im meant to, letting go of the ones im not. head held high. chilling out.. generally i mean.
