whatever tears at us

August 15, 2006

Hey my friend
It seems your eyes are troubled
Care to share your time with me
Would you say you’re feeling low and so
A good idea would be to get it off your mind

See you and me
Have a better time than most can dream
Have it better than the best
So we can pull on through
Whatever tears at us
Whatever holds us down
And if nothing can be done
We’ll make the best of what’s around

Turns out not where but who you’re with
That really matters
And hurts not much when you’re around
And if you hold on tight
To what you think is your thing
You may find you’re missing all the rest

Well she ran up into the light surprised
Her arms are open
Her mind’s eye is

Seeing things from a
Better side than most can dream
On a clearer road I feel
Oh you could say she’s safe
Whatever tears at her
Whatever holds her down
And if nothing can be done
She’ll make the best of what’s around

Turns out not where but what you think
That really matters
We’ll make the best of what’s around

Best of What’s Around” – Dave Matthews Band

(apologies to DMB for the lyrics repost. If Dave Matthews has troubles with this, he can send me an email and maybe…y’know…we can do dinner and chat about it??)

Out of deference to BvP, I’m keeping most of the divorce talk to a minimum. But my goodness, this is turning into quite a speedy process.

Downloaded Christina Aguilera’s Back to Basics this morning from iTunes. I am SO looking forward to listening to this!

    “She’ll make the best of what’s around”

    It would seem, then, that the key is to make sure you have only the best wrapped around you.

    I love the line “Her mind’s eye is”. Definitely reminds me of my favorite band – Tears For Fears when they sing “In My Mind’s Eye” in “Broken”.

    Sorry about the divorce. You and BvP are handling things with class.

    Sounds like Christina is turning into a bit of a snob with her latest demands on her dressing room setups. She used to be so sweet! I miss the Britney days!!
