4:36p - LIKE LOVERS DO...
There is a paradise that can be found
A better life to bring us round
And all we really need to do
Is see the world like lovers do

I want to take it easy, take it slow
To catch a fire and let it go
I wanna give myself to you
So we can live like lovers do

Like lovers do
I wanna feel that way
Yeah like lovers do
They loose themselves for days
And I need to feel, I need to feel that way

I can hear you thinking what I feel
I know that what we've got is real
And all we need to get us through
Is just to live like lovers do

Just like lovers do
I wanna feel that way
Yeah like lovers do
They loose themselves for days
Yeah I need to feel, I need to feel that way
Like lovers do
Give me the strength
To give myself to you
Like lovers lovers do

Yeah all we really need to do
Is see the world like lovers do
Like lovers do
I wanna feel that way
Yeah like lovers do
They loose themselves for days
Lovers do
I wanna feel that way
Like lovers do
They loose themselves for days
Yeah I need to feel, I need to feel that way

Like lovers do


I've been listening to a number of songs that I have on my pc from ages ago. I can't help but think of Summery with this song only because when we first met she loved Heather. I never really had listened to her until today. I've heard her work before but it clicked today. Interesting. I love how music can take you to another place in time. Preludin' Fugue by Eric Clapton takes me way way back to high school and to my first apartment later on. It holds a great deal of memories in the musical notes. I love that song. It is probably my favorite along with Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Funny the two songs I love most have no lyrics...but tons of memories in them. Music is like what scents are for most people. While scents do hold memories for me, because I've blocked a number of things out from my memory, the scents only confuse me. While music...melodies...they trigger movie like memories in my mind. A film of an event will play and I will momentarily disappear into that memory.

"Goodbye" by Alicia Keys is playing now...instantly transporting me back to December 2003. An interesting time. A cold night staring out at the snow falling just beyond my balcony. I sat on my bed snuggled up in blankets while my children were nustled in there beds in their rooms. The song played on the computer that rested beside me on the bed. I love my laptop. I'd been writing for a few hours at this point. Lost in a story I'd begun about snow and love. This song came on surprising me. I'd said goodbye so often in my life...often meaning farewell forever. I used to close my messages with my friends: Soon ~ Kaly. I sometimes still do. I don't like saying goodbye...it seems as if when you do, you close a door. Atleast those were the thoughts at that time. I was closing a door. I had started something I just couldn't really finish. The song didn't quite fit but it fit recently. I'm thinking December just isn't a good month for my love life! :O) I do believe though that I can finally finish that story. I was thinking the other day that I just didn't know the ending because in some of my stories I use myself as a character sketch. I think I blocked my completion of that story. My story has no ending so how could I finish the one I was working on. Well, I've finally removed myself from it and put a new character in place. We shall see how that comes about. I'm definitely in a writing mood.


current music: Preludin' Fugue ~ Eric Clapton
