Kiss You Tonight – David Nail

“Everything will be alright if I can kiss you tonight.”

Kiss You Tonight – David Nail
I catch myself wishing
You were whispering my name
Every star, every scar
Every mark upon my heart
Up and fades away.

I feel myself missing
Everything I threw away
Every dream, every scene
Every song we’d ever sing
Got lost in yesterday.

Chorus:
I’ve been trying to do without you
But I can’t give up this fight
Everything will be alright
If I can kiss you tonight
We can make it to tomorrow
If we can find the morning light
Everything will be alright
If I can kiss you tonight.

Do you find yourself wondering
If I still think about you
Every thought, every step
Every tear and every breath
I swear I do
Yeah, that’s all I ever do.

I’ve been trying to do without you
But I can’t give up this fight
Everything will be alright
If I can kiss you tonight
We can make it to tomorrow
If we can find the morning light
Everything will be alright
If I can kiss you tonight.
If I can kiss you tonight.

I’ve been trying to do without you
But I can’t give up this fight
Everything will be alright
If I can kiss you tonight
We can make it to tomorrow
If we can find the morning light
Everything will be alright
If I can kiss you tonight.

Everything will be alright
If I can kiss you tonight.
If I can kiss you tonight.
If I could kiss you tonight.

Where It’s At – Dustin Lynch

There’s something special about leaning over at 2 a.m. for that sweet little late night kiss. Love it.

“It’s at 2 a.m. when she’s reachin’ over, faded t-shirt hangin’ off her shoulder.  Dressed up, her hair down, in a ball cap, yep yep. As long as I get that sweet little something late night kiss, on a plane or a train or way back in the sticks. I swear, if she’s there, that’s where, yep yep, that’s where it’s at.”

Where It’s At – Dustin Lynch
It ain’t in a high rise, looking for a good time, shutting down the city lights
It ain’t in the water, floating like a bobber, soaking up that hot sunshine
As good as it gets, no that ain’t where it is.

Chorus:
It’s at 2 a.m. when she’s reachin’ over
Faded t-shirt hangin’ off her shoulder
Dressed up, her hair down, in a ball cap
Yep yep, as long as I get that
Sweet little something late night kiss
On a plane or a train or way back in the sticks
I swear, if she’s there, that’s where
Yep yep, that’s where it’s at.

It ain’t in a suped up, shiny red new truck, if she ain’t to my right
It ain’t in a dive bar, tall can of PBR, poppin’ tops, rockin’ all night
As good as it gets, no that ain’t where it is.  Chorus

No, it don’t matter wherever we’re at
No, it don’t get no better than that.

It ain’t in a suped-up, shiny red new truck.  Chorus

Yeah, that’s where it’s at
Yep, yep
2 a.m. when she’s reachin’ over
Faded t-shirt hangin’ off her shoulder
That’s where it’s at.

Love is War – American Young

I love the honesty in this song.  “Young lovers in a picture frame, ever notice how there ain’t no rain.  Nobody hangs hard times on the wall.”  It’s easy sometimes in this Facebook world we live in to think that everyone around us has their life all put together, and somehow leads a “more perfect” life than we do.  But in reality…everybody’s either coming out of a crisis, currently in a crisis, or heading for one.  No one is exempt from that, although it’s not something we talk about a lot.  Last week was really stressful for me.  Getting stuck in Detroit with no flights home, coming home to my air conditioner broken, spending the busy weekend celebrating with girlfriends for a Bachelorette party, trying to get my life at work back on track before interns come this next week…it feels like a lot to handle sometimes.  What gets us through is our faith, having incredible friends and family to support us, music, reading, and time to relax and unwind.  I’m so thankful for these blessings in my life…

Love is War – American Young
Young lovers in a picture frame
Ever notice how there ain’t no rain
Nobody hangs hard times on the wall
You won’t see it in an 8 by 10
But there’s a storm every now and then
A slamming door down the hall.

Chorus:
Sometimes love is a white flag
Sometimes love is standing tall
Sometimes love is a feather
Sometimes a cannon ball
But it’s worth fighting for (it’s worth fighting for)
Baby, sometimes love is war.

An old couple on a front porch swing
On a walk down memory lane
Been through the fire and back again
Through the clear and the cloudy skies
Still love in each other’s eyes
Sometimes love is war but sometimes you win.  Chorus

Sometimes love is all that can save us
Sometimes love can kill a man
Yeah sometimes love is a soft touch
Or a pistol in your hand.  Chorus

Sometimes love is a white flag
Sometimes love is standing tall
Sometimes love is a feather
Sometimes a cannon ball
But it’s worth fighting for (it’s worth fighting for)
Baby, sometimes love is
Baby, sometimes love is war.

Roller Coaster – Luke Bryan

“And we spent that week wide open, upside down beside the ocean.”

Great weekend at Cedar Point with great friends.

Roller Coaster – Luke Bryan
She had a cross around her neck
And a flower in her hand
That I picked from the side of Thomas Drive
On our way to the sand.
We found an old wooden chair
Still warm from the sun
Pushed it back, gave me a kiss
With Bacardi on her lips
And I was done.

Chorus:
And we spent that week wide open
Upside down beside the ocean
I didn’t know where it was goin’
Just tryin’ to keep my heart on the tracks
I should’ve known that kind of feelin’
Would last longer than that week did
Blown away and barely breathin’
Sunday came and it was over
Now she’s got me twisted
Like an old beach roller coaster.

The rest of those days
Turned into long crazy nights
When the music got loud
We’d sneak away from the crowd
Under the boardwalk lights
And with all the things we said
What I just can’t get past
Is the way we let it end
Now I’m wonderin’ where she is
Knowin’ I can’t get that goodbye back.  Chorus

She’s like a song playin’ over and over
In my mind, where I still hold her
I had the chance and I should’ve told her.  Chorus

Like that old beach roller coaster.

Anchor Me – The Tenors

“Hold me still and hold me close, until it all passes away.  I beg you not to let go.
All I really have to know is that you are here, and I am not alone.”

This song was a song I listened to a lot during my last week at sea while I was on a Caribbean cruise with my family.  The lyrics “When sadness crashes like an ocean, when fear is deeper than the sea.  When I am swallowed by the darkness, will you come and anchor me” seemed to stand out so much.  Last week I had a lot of time to reflect on my life and what the future may hold for me.  I have such amazing and supportive people in my life, which I am so very grateful for.  I can’t wait to see what life has for me next…

Anchor Me – The Tenors
Oh, my soul is troubled
Oh, my will is worn
Tired and discouraged
Trampled on and torn.

Every breath a battle
Every step a war
My heart, a broken vessel
This night, an angry storm.

Chorus:
When sadness crashes like an ocean
When fear is deeper than the sea
When I am swallowed by the darkness
Will you come and anchor me?

I cannot see through this
Can you be my eyes?
I’m completely hopeless
Can you shine a light?

I have no more strength left
Can you stand and fight
I’m dying in this doubt
Can you be my faith tonight?  Chorus

Hold me still and hold me close
Until it all passes away
I beg you not to let go
All I really have to know
Is that you are here
And I am not alone.  Chorus

Skin – Sixx:A.M.

“So, let them find the real you buried deep within
Let them know with all you’ve got, that you are not your skin.”

Skin – Sixx:A.M.
Paint yourself a picture
Of what you wish you looked like
Maybe then they just might
Feel an ounce of your pain.

Come into focus
Step out of the shadows
It’s a losing battle
There’s no need to be ashamed.

Chorus:
‘Cause they don’t even know you
All they see is scars
They don’t see the angel
Living in your heart
Let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you’ve got
That you are not your skin.

When they start to judge you
Show them your true colors
And do unto others
As you’d have done to you.

Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They’re the ones that stand to lose.  Chorus

Well, they don’t even know you
All they see is scars
And they don’t see the angels
Living in your heart
So, let them find the real you
Buried deep within
Let them know with all you’ve got
That you are not
You are not your skin.

World Stand Still – The Tenors

“I find that I’m rushing, I can’t see all of the beautiful things
Until you make the world stand still.
You make me see and feel.  I keep spinning around until you slow me down,
You make me real, when you make the world stand still.”

World Stand Still – The Tenors
Life has a tempo we never have time for
Feels like we’re all missing out
No time for the beauty that always surrounds me
Walking, my hanging down.

Chorus:
I wouldn’t have believed it
‘Cause I never used to see it
You give this life meaning around me
When you make the world stand still
You make the world stand still
I keep spinning around until you slow me down
You make me real, when you make the world stand still.

Just like the wind blows, I’m turning in circles
When will my feet touch the ground
Lost in a race, where no one’s a winner
To finally turn me around.  Chorus

I’m running, my eyes closed, I’m running
I try to keep up with all those around me
I find that I’m rushing, I can’t see
All of the beautiful things until you make the world stand still.
You make me see and feel
I keep spinning around until you slow me down
You make me real
When you make the world stand still.

I’m running, my eyes closed, I’m running
I try to keep up with all those around me
I find that I’m rushing, I can’t see
All of the beautiful things until you make the world stand still
With you the world stands still.
