Then a strange fear gripped me, and I just couldn't ask


I know it's been here before, but it's just something spinning through my head right now :(

And when I'm lying in my bed
I think about life
And I think about death
And neither one particularly appeals to me


dont know if its been said before (29 pages!) but it totally sums up how i feel today
A shoeless child on a swing
Reminds you of your own again
She took away your troubles
Oh, but then again
She left pain
So, please save your life
Because you've only got one

No, I've never had a job
Because I'm too shy

But she's too rough
And I'm too delicate

Nothing's changed
I still love you, oh, I still love you
...Only slightly, only slightly less than I used to, my love

In my life
Why do I smile
At people who I'd much rather kick in the eye ?

agree, it's a wonderful line. I take my line of the day out of the same song:



"and when your dancing and laughing and finally living, hear my voice and think of me kindly"

But don't forget the songs
That made you smile
And the songs that made you cry


....

The passing of time
And all of its crimes
Is making me sad again
The passing of time


it's beautiful, and it sure deserves its place here today! :rolleyes:
