Song A Day In May (Day 31)

It’s the FINAL DAY! I know I have slacked off, but I had visitors and have been busy with getting my oldest son through graduation and on with adult life.

But to end this month, is one of my favorite songs by Counting Crows… It’s called Colorblind. I hope you enjoy it.

song a day in may (Day 23)

I’m a sucker for Queen, so today’s song is The Show Must Go On by Queen. I love this song because it reminds me of my day to day life with mental illness, wearing a mask to hide all your pain, while the outside looks fine. The show must go on even if you feel like crap!

Lyrics:

Empty spaces – what are we living for
Abandoned places – I guess we know the score
On and on, does anybody know what we are looking for…
Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line, does anybody want to take it anymore
The show must go on,
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on.
Whatever happens, I’ll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance
On and on, does anybody know what we are living for?
I guess I’m learning, I must be warmer now
I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free
The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on
My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly – my friends
The show must go on
The show must go on
I’ll face it with a grin
I’m never giving in
On – with the show –
I’ll top the bill, I’ll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the –
On with the show –
The show must go on…

Song A Day In May (Day 19)

I like to share songs that are not so well known, and this one fits the bill. Winter In My Heart by VAST (Visual Auditory Sensory Theater) VAST is a one man band; Jon Crosby is the singer, musician, and writer. I really enjoy his music and this song is one of my favorites by him. I follow him on facebook, and he is really interactive with his fans. Although I don’t always agree with his opinions (quite recently suicide and I had to set him straight) but I love his music. I hope I turn you on to something new.

Song A Day In May (Day 17)

I’m trying to have a better day today as yesterday was hell. Today’s song always puts me in a good mood, if even for only a moment.

You Get What You Give by The New Radicals. I hope it makes you feel good like it makes me.

Lyrics:

Wake up kids
We’ve got the dreamer’s disease
Age 14
We got you down on your knees
So polite,
We’re busy still saying please

Frienemies,
Who when you’re down ain’t your friend
Every night
We smash their Mercedes-Benz
First we run
And then we laugh ’til we cry

[Pre-chorus:]
But when the night is falling
You cannot find the light, light
You feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight

[Chorus:]
You’ve got the music in you
Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give

I’m comin’ home baby
You’re tops, give it to me now

Four A.M. we ran a miracle mile
We’re flat broke but hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God’s flying in for your trial

[Pre-chorus:]
But when the night is falling
You cannot find your friend (friend)
You feel your tree is breaking
Just bend

[Chorus]

This whole damn world can fall apart
You’ll be OK, follow your heart
You’re in harm’s way, I’m right behind
Now say you’re mine

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Don’t let go
I feel the music in you
Fly high
What’s real can’t die
You only get what you give
You’re gonna get what you give
(don’t give up)
Just don’t be afraid to live

Health insurance rip off lying
FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they’re multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson,
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You’re all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We’ll kick your ass in!

Don’t let go
One dance left
