Blue October – Hope you are Happy

Lyrics There will be days when you’re falling down
There will be days when you’re inside out
There will be days when you fall apart
Someone else will break you heart
They’re never gonna hold you back
I’m always gonna have your back
So try to remember that I hope you’re happy
I hope you’re good
I hope you get what you wish for
And you’re well understood And now I’m standing here and looking at you
I wonder what the hell you’re gonna do
With those Dr. Pepper eyes and you bubble gum hair
Yeah, I’m standing right here
I remember how I held you so right
I remember that Saturday night, do you? There will be days when you’re falling down
There will be days when you’re inside out
There will be days when you fall apart
Someone else will break you heart
They’re never gonna hold you back
I’m always gonna have your back
So try to remember that I hope you’re happy
I hope you’re good
I hope you get what you wish for
And you’re well understood
And whatever your progress
I know you’ll be fine
Because I hope you’re happy
Even if you’re not mine I remember when the world was ours to take
I remember you next to me
I remember you with every breath I take
You’ll always have a piece of me
I remember, yeah
Try to remember that I remember every word that we spoke
You right here next to me
I remember how we tried and we tried
I remember everything
Try to remember that
That I hope you’re happy
That I hope you’re happy I hope you’re happy
I hope you’re good
I hope you get what you wish for
And you’re well understood
And whatever your progress
I know you’ll be fine
Because I hope you’re happy
Even if you’re not mine
Try to remember that
I hope you’re happy

my 2 cents I think that everyone has this. that love that even if you can’t have them… you still wish them happy. I have several. so I decided that for today… I hope that you are happy.

Alec Benjamin – if we have each other

Lyrics She was 19 with a baby on the way
On the East-side of the city, she was working every day
Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
And, ‘cross town she would take the bus at night
To a one bedroom apartment, and when she’d turn on the light
She would sit down at the table, tell herself that it’s alright
She was waiting on the day she hoped her baby would arrive
She’d never be alone
Have someone to hold
And when nights were cold
She’d say
The world’s not perfect, but it’s not that bad
If we got each other, and that’s all we have
I will be your mother, and I’ll hold your hand
You should know I’ll be there for you
When the world’s not perfect
When the world’s not kind
If we have each other then we’ll both be fine
I will be your mother, and I’ll hold your hand
You should know I’ll be there for you
They were 90 and were living out their days
On the West-side of the city next to where they got engaged
They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they’d made
And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
With each other, and though some times were hard
Even when she made him angry he would never break her heart
No, they didn’t have the money to afford a fancy car
But they never had to travel ’cause they’d never be apart
Even at the end
Their love was stronger than
The day that they first met
They’d say
The world’s not perfect, but it’s not that bad
If we got each other, and that’s all we have
I will be your lover, and I’ll hold your hand
You should know I’ll be there for you
When the world’s not perfect
When the world’s not kind
If we have each other then we’ll both be fine
I will be your lover, and I’ll hold your hand
You should know I’ll be there for you
You should know I’ll be there for you
I’m 23, and my folks are getting old
I know they don’t have forever and I’m scared to be alone
So I’m thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
When high school wasn’t easy, she’s the reason I survived
I know she’d never leave me and I hate to see her cry
So I wrote this verse to tell her that I’m always by her side
I wrote this verse to tell her that I’m always by her side
I wrote this verse to tell her that
The world’s not perfect, but it’s not that bad
If we got each other, and that’s all we have
I will be your brother, and I’ll hold your hand
You should know I’ll be there for you
When the world’s not perfect
When the world’s not kind
If we have each other then we’ll both be fine
I will be your brother, and I’ll hold your hand
You should know I’ll be there for you
You should know I’ll be there for you

My 2 cents so much has gone on this year and I needed some happy with the music. so I chose upbeat and happy survival music. rock on.

Aviva – E*V*I*L

Lyrics – I’m sorry
Somebody hurt ya
When you were younger
But why’d you take it out on me?
Now you’re over, soon you’ll see
I forgive ya
It’s not your fault you’re
So frickin evil
Spreading lies about you and me
Tore it down, made it seem easy
What’s the way to Heaven?
Now you’ve found a way to sell it
You thought I’d lay down and die
But it’s my turn now to start the fires
You’re E-V-I-L
You burn this place to Hell
But it don’t matter when you’re dead
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends
E-V-I-L, they’re all under your spell
But it won’t matter when you’re dead
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends
E-V, E-V-I-L, E-V, E-V-I-L
But it don’t matter when you’re dead
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends
Your problems are not my problems you’re forgettin’
Cannot change who you are inside
You let it out let your dark run wild
I know it
Wasn’t my fault
I can’t believe though
That you think you have escaped me
I’ll hunt you down, just you wait and see
What’s the way to Heaven?
Now you’ve found a way to sell it
You thought I’d lay down and die
But it’s my turn now to start the fires
You’re E-V-I-L
You burn this place to Hell
But it don’t matter when you’re dead (don’t matter)
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends (don’t matter)
E-V-I-L, they’re all under your spell
But it won’t matter when you’re dead (don’t matter)
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends
E-V, E-V-I-L, E-V, E-V-I-L
But it don’t matter when you’re dead
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends
E-V, E-V-I-L, E-V, E-V-I-L
E-V, E-V-I-L, E-V-I-L (E-V-I-L)
You’re E-V-I-L
You burn this place to Hell
But it don’t matter when you’re dead (don’t matter)
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends (don’t matter)
E-V-I-L, they’re all under your spell
But it won’t matter when you’re dead (don’t matter)
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends
E-V, E-V-I-L, E-V, E-V-I-L
But it don’t matter when you’re dead
Won’t save you now ’cause we’re not friends

My 2 cents – this song has been stuck in my head for 2 weeks now. It has a catchy rhythm to the music. The message behind it is strong.

Don’t threaten me with a good time – Panic! At the Disco

Lyrics – Alright, alright
Alright, alright
Alright, alright, it’s a hell of a feeling though
It’s a hell of a feeling though
Alright, alright, it’s a hell of a feeling though
It’s a hell of a feeling though
Who are these people?
I just woke up in my underwear
No liquor left on the shelf
I should probably introduce myself
You shoulda’ seen what I wore
I had a cane and a party hat
I was the king of this hologram
Where there’s no such thing as getting out of hand
Memories tend to just pop up
Drunk pre-meds and some rubber gloves
Five-thousand people with designer drugs
Don’t think I’ll ever get enough (don’t think I’ll ever get enough)
Champagne, cocaine, gasoline
And most things in between
I roam the city in a shopping cart
A pack of camels and a smoke alarm
This night is heating up
Raise hell and turn it up
Saying “If you go out you might pass out in a drain pipe”
Oh yeah, don’t threaten me with a good time
It’s a hell of a feeling though
It’s a hell of a feeling though
Alright, alright
It’s a hell of a feeling though
It’s a hell of a feeling though
What are these footprints?
They don’t look very human like
Now I wish that I could find my clothes
Bedsheets and a morning rose
I wanna wake up
Can’t even tell if this is a dream
How did we end up in my neighbors pool
Upside down with a perfect view?
Bar to bar at the speed of sound
Fancy feet dancing through this town
Lost my mind in a wedding gown
Don’t think I’ll ever get it now
(Don’t think I’ll ever get it now)
Champagne, cocaine, gasoline
And most things in between
I roam the city in a shopping cart
A pack of camels and a smoke alarm
This night is heating up
Raise hell and turn it up
Saying “If you go out you might pass out in a drain pipe
Oh yeah, don’t threaten me with a good time
I’m a scholar and a gentleman
And I usually don’t fall when I try to stand
I lost a bet to a guy in a Chiffon skirt
But I make these high heels work
I’ve told you time and time again
I’m not as think as you drunk I am
And we all fell down when the sun came up
I think we’ve had enough
Alright, alright, it’s a hell of a feeling though
It’s a hell of a feeling though
Alright, alright, it’s a hell of a feeling though
It’s a hell of a feeling though
Champagne, cocaine, gasoline
And most things in between
I roam the city in a shopping cart
A pack of camels and a smoke alarm
This night is heating up
Raise hell and turn it up
Saying “If you go out you might pass out in a drain pipe”
Oh yeah, don’t threaten me with a good time

My 2 cents – well I think that I might have shared this before, but I am covered over with work and feel the need for a good time… Lol. The video and song are both fun.

Lyrics –
Yo.
Sam.
Ha, we back bitches
Good grip with that hood shit
Full flame in front the bull pit
Bad bitch don’t take shit
Fucked last week been dead since
In the muck ducked one time
Kill em all with one line
From the swamp, bump and grind
Ain’t with the game no shuck and jive
Ain’t no soft mouth when is gold
Can’t hang low where the demons go
Cats don’t talk, they plead the fifth
One disappearance ain’t nobody see shit
(Woo!) On a different plane
Take it outside it’s so insane
Sam right rip real simple and plain
Sam B mother fucker ya’ll in hell (No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
And there’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
There’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
Eat a brain while getting brained
Conductor on my zombie train
All aboard, kill a broad
Leave her bloody, choked and stained
Won’t play games no slick talk
Devil dick like a pitchfork
No super suit, no Bat Cave
Just shrunken heads and dead stock
I’m Mossberg, I’m 2Pac
B.I.G. with two Glocks
Big L from Hell and back
Collecting heads in my napsack
Ghost Rider with no chains
Spawned life with no cape
Demon child like Hunger Games
Chase a bitch, no escape (No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
And there’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
There’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
First of all I ain’t going to hell
Let ’em know we’re going to need a lease
I stay hungry I need a feast, I’m like,
“Didn’t I tell you don’t feed the beast?”
Went and got a little Holy water and then
Put it onto my Jesus piece
Got her wet like she’s seen the beach
And I think your girl’s goin’ to need a priest
Say I’m ill when I’m over seas
Couldn’t see how that’s not true
My jewelry looks like it caught Flu
And my neck looking like Achoo
Girl you got to be psychic
If you think that I’m crazy
I would show you my good side
But what have you done for me lately?
Every day would be heavenly when she
Call me up and I stop through
Every day I look to the sky and I
Thank God that I’m not you (No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
And there’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
There’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
(No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
And there’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
When the elevators go down
And the guest list is closed
Ain’t no +1’s allowed
And the devil locked his doors (No room in Hell)
The nightmares come quick
The air is getting thick
When the dead start to rise
There’s no place to hide (No room in Hell)
Sam B!

My 2 Cents –
My head is deep in editing of some really great horror stories for Nightmare Whispers. (and some great poetry and flash fiction for Fae Dreams. ) We have announcements upcoming on the Fae Corps Blog Thursday. So I chose a song to match my theme. This was done for a video game. It was honestly better than the game it was made for. The video has some great cinematic effects. This song makes it into my daily listening most of the time. I am not usually into rap music, with a few exceptions. This is one of the exceptions.

My 2Cents:

This song has been stuck in my head for 3 weeks. I think with the way people have been suffering through 2020 that maybe a good time is just what we need this year. So tell me, what is your good time?

A day for me to discuss music

Before I do this… I apologize for the late posts the last couple of days… I have been helping a friend and I have been late getting home. Usually I will do the posts while out if need be, but I was the driver this time. Stretches my ability to get things done.

Fivefold – Lost within

Lyrics – Crawl out of the hole you’re in
Who you are is not who you’ve been
Now’s the time to sink or swim
Will you fight the tide or get lost within
And I know you’re feeling low
Feel like you’ve lost control
But the darkness that you know
It’s not your home and you’re not alone
And all you’ve wanted was just so much more
This world has taken ahold
Don’t let ’em get your soul
The silence
You feel it cold as a winter storm
This world has taken ahold
Don’t let ’em get your soul
Iron bars are hell to break
Tell me now, do you know what’s at stake?
Your whole life in a blank stare haze
You walk around like the end of days
And I know you’re feeling low
Feel like you’ve lost control
But the darkness that you know
It’s not your home and you’re not alone
And all you’ve wanted was just so much more
This world has taken ahold
Don’t let ’em get your soul
The silence
You feel it cold as a winter storm
This world has taken ahold
Don’t let ’em get your soul
I’m callin’ out to you
Can you hear me?
They can’t break you down
Let you hit the ground
I promise you it won’t be long (Won’t be long)
You’re feeling overwhelmed here
Drowned by the pain and the fear
The sun will come with the dawn
All you’ve wanted was just so much more
This world has taken ahold
Don’t let ’em get your soul
The silence
You feel it cold as a winter storm
This world has taken ahold
Don’t let ’em get your soul…
Get your soul…

My 2 cents – this is a song about learning how to be strong after a struggle. Don’t let the world destroy you. It’s a good song, and it feels like a good message.

A day for me to discuss music

So Tuesday I share the music video and lyrics of songs that spark my need to say something. This week… Well I think that I want you to tell me what you are listening to. Give me a band and song, a video link, or just a song title so I can go look it up. I will listen and tell you what I think of it.

Meredith Brooks – Bitch

Lyrics – [Verse 1]
I hate the world today
You’re so good to me, I know, but I can’t change
Tried to tell you but you look at me like maybe
I’m an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet

Yesterday I cried
You must have been relieved to see the softer side
I can understand how you’d be so confused
I don’t envy you
I’m a little bit of everything all rolled into one

[Chorus]
I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner, I’m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I’m your Hell, I’m your dream
I’m nothing in between
You know you wouldn’t want it any other way

[Verse 2]
So take me as I am
This may mean you’ll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous
And I’m going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change and today won’t mean a thing

[Chorus]
I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner, I’m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I’m your Hell, I’m your dream
I’m nothing in between
You know you wouldn’t want it any other way

[Bridge]
Just when you think you got me figured out
The season’s already changing
I think it’s cool, you do what you do
And don’t try to save me

[Chorus]
I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner, I’m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I’m your Hell, I’m your dream
I’m nothing in between
You know you wouldn’t want it any other way

[Chorus 2]
I’m a bitch, I’m a tease
I’m a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I’m your angel undercover
I’ve been numb, I’m revived
Can’t say I’m not alive
You know I wouldn’t want it any other way

My 2 cents – OK, some days I feel the power of self confidence. I know that I am unique and my power is in my creativity… But those are the rare days. I have struggled with public opinion and self esteem my whole life. Today I see my flaws and I embrace the idea that they are part of my uniqueness. Tomorrow the weight of them may be too much. This song speaks to that. Nobody is perfect, that struggle is in every single soul. The need to be both saint and sinner exists in each of us. So, if you are not sure of someone’s situation… Be kind. Lest you send them into a personal hell.

Silent Child – F**k You

Lyrics – [Verse 1]
Am I wasting my breath on you
Feels like my words are never getting through, yeah, ohh
I never said I hate you to someone so much before
I’m light headed when we talk and then you shut the door, god damn
Like what are we still talking for, yeah

[Verse 2]
I really hope you don’t see tomorrow
I tried to play nice with you
‘Cause all you ever do is try to fuck up my day
And you were successful
(But I know the truth)
No you don’t have anything better to do
Everything you ever loved has tried to escape you
So why would I want anything to do with you
Fuck you

[Verse 3]
(I’ve had a bad day, and it’s all because of you)
(I’ve had a bad day, and it’s all because of you)
(I’m not ok after what you put me through)
(Uhh, uuh, yeah)
(Uhh, you broke me, fuck you)
Fuck you
(Uhh, uuh, yeah)

My 2 cents – I generally avoid posting songs that have explicit lyrics. Still this song speaks to me. There’s always someone who you want to just tell off. This song has a good beat and feel to it. And it just is fun.
