My Lifes New Theme Song




New Low ~ Middle Class Rut


I have no space
No room to move around
And this box is getting smaller
I'm trying to get out

How did I get so far
From where I was
When did I decide
To lose my way
Who have I become

I've got a new low
All 52 cards in a row
I see now that I won't let go
No I won't let go

Well who am I?
A cold shoulder left to cry
You feel bad? Well so do I
Yeah so do I

I've been right; I've been left
I've been wrong; I've been left behind
I've been up but mostly down

I've been right; I've been left
I've been wrong; I've been left behind
I've been up but mostly down

I can not help feeling like
I have so much at stake
So I lock myself inside my head
And I just run in place

So many directions I don't
Know which way to go
I'm so busy doing nothing
I got nothing to show

I've got a new low
All 52 cards in a row
I see now that I won't let go
No I won't let go

Well who am I?
A cold shoulder used to cry
You feel bad? well so do I
Yeah so do I

I've been right; I've been left
I've been wrong; I've been left behind
I've been up but mostly down

I've been right; I've been left
I've been wrong; I've been left behind
I've been up but mostly down

I make mistakes
Just like everybody else
But instead I'm letting go of it
I can't forgive myself

Well I did my time
In the window of this box
Like it or not
All I got now is today
Tomorrow aint here
And yesterday is gone dead on me anyway

I've been right; I've been left
I've been wrong; I've been left behind
I've been up but mostly down

I've been right; I've been left
I've been wrong; I've been left behind
I've been up but mostly down

Being your friend, I can tell you that you have A LOT that shows.

You have one of the most beautiful, giving, and kind souls I know.

((((( Nitebyrd ))))))

I love ya, Sis!

Very poignant.

We are our own worst critics. There are times I wish I can see myself through your eyes, just as much as I wish you would see yourself through mine.

I think what we would see would amaze us....

CrystalChick said...

So many of us have been there at one time or another.
Wishing you some good times and feeling up again. xo

Ive never heard that song before but, I really liked it. I know we all have those moments in time when nothing seems to be going right... but give yourself credit. I know that I and many others think you are one spectacular lady!

Thats a heck of a theme song..
I have a running sound track in my head..
most days it sounds like punk music,

and other days it sounds like the blues.
well, I suppose it can't be all bad if we can still here the music?

Perceptions are interesting things. The man or woman huddled in the shelter of a doorway on Main and Hastings may see your life quite differently. I will blog of the wolves in the next few days to come.

Ron ~ Thanks, bro! I appreciate it. Good song, isn't it?

Ubermouth ~ Yeah, it just kinda sums things up perfectly.

Joker ~ That's very true. I can look at others with admiration and awe but can't see it in myself. Currently, I feel as though I'm encased in ice - alive but not living.

Crystal Chick ~ I've got a bed in the abyss and have started to have my mail delivered there.

Flying solo ~ I just downloaded their entire album, I'm really liking them. This song is just so perfect for me. It goes well with my other theme song - Pain by Three Days Grace.

Blacknick ~ I'll get through it, I always do. I appreciate your kind words.

Illuminary ~ Some days all I here is - I Wanna Be Sedated by The Ramones! LOL

Akelamalu ~ True. Except my days tend to be - Same Shit, Different Day. ;)

Casdok ~ It's a great song! Thanks!

The Hippy Dom ~ Yes, that's very true. But sometimes wallowing in my own misery is required. Looking forward to your wolf post. Thanks for stopping by.

UP ~ Yeah, work! I'm tired of that, too!

rosie ~ Thanks,girl. Nice to see you back. You've had a rough ride lately, too. (((hugs))
