waking up…

You´re better then the best
I´m lucky just to linger in your light
Cooler then the flip side of my pillow that´s right
Completely unaware
Nothing can compare to where you send me
Lets me know that it´s ok yeah it´s ok
And the moments where my good times start to fade

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile

Even when you´re gone
Somehow you come along
Just like a flower poking through the sidewalk crack and just like that
You steal away the rain and just like that

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile

Don´t know how I lived without you
Cuz everytime that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile
Ohh you make me smile
Ohh you make me smile

It took two and a half months but I think i’m finally waking up from my night terror.

be there

The past few months have taught me a lot about heroism, and I don’t mean the kind you see in movies. These  past  few months have sucked royal, trust me.  Being a hero is rarely putting oneself in harms way.  Sometimes all it takes to be a hero is a handmade card and a pair of contacts.  It’s when someone  an ocean away tells you it will be ok  in spite of everything going to hell.and now because he’s said it so often you’re beginning to think it actually will be. Heroics is going to bed and waking up because of insomnia to discover a friend’s father went to the emergency  room and staying up with them until nearly 4a.m. to make sure they’re ok when you have to be at work in a few hours time. It’s explaining medical terminology  from three states away and never telling the person  you’re explaining it to that they’re overreacting to the situation even though they were.  It’s taking two minutes to say hi even though you live on separate hemispheres of the planet because you know someone over there is having a rough week.  It’s caring enough to start a friendship with someone your boyfriend knows after he left for the army so that they didn’t worry as much and to make sure they knew that despite obligations they were still loved and not in any way , shape, or form abandoned. Thank you for being there..
