week o' lyrics...


the eagles
peaceful easy feeling


I like the way your sparkling earrings lay,
against your skin, it's so brown
and I wanna sleep with you
in the desert tonight
with a billion stars all around
'cause I gotta peaceful easy feeling
and I know you won't let me down
'cause I'm already standing on the
ground
And I found out a long time ago
what a woman can do to your soul
Ah, but she can't take you anyway
You don't already know how to go
and I gotta peaceful, easy feeling
and I know you won't let me down
'cause I'm already standing on the ground
I get this feeling I may know you
as a lover and a friend
but this voice keeps whispering
in my other ear, tells me
I may never see you again
'cause I get a peaceful, easy feeling
and I know you won't let me down
'cause I'm already standing on the ground
'cause I'm already standing...
on the ground
oooo, oooo


a classic i grew up with.
a classic i continue to grow with.




dad,
way to many choices on a day like today.
eagles
linda ronstadt
paul simon
don henley
melissa etheridge
janis joplin
eric clapton
crosby, stills, nash {young}
bonnie rait

jeeeez...infiniate possibilities.
it's impossible yet so simple at the same time.
i went with the one that choked me up when i listened to it.
i turned it up as you would- and it seems as though
i have that same foot tap and head shake trait as you.
yeah- you know the one.
and then i listened to it again.
i miss you so much.

happy birthday dad.
this ones for you.
i love you til the street stops.









ps. what a way to end a "week o' lyrics." celebrating the man who has taught me the appreciation of all music types, lyrics, the ocean, good company, great drinks, unconditional love, and so much more. this week was a lot harder than i anticipated. sounded so easy but when something so vast embraces you in such a remarkable way, and then you have to nail it down to one song- a day- with a girl who loves to wear her heart on her sleeve. {and run on sentences} ha. not so easy. anyhoo- i hope you enjoyed all the late night lyrics gracing the blog i love so much.
i will leave you with this...
