Sometimes a lyric hits you...

right between the eyes.<br><br>
It's buried in this Leonard Cohen song... Sisters of Mercy.<br><br>
Oh the sisters of mercy, they are not departed or gone.<br>
They were waiting for me when I thought that I just can't go on.<br>
And they brought me their comfort and later they brought me this song.<br>
Oh I hope you run into them, you who've been travelling so long.<br><br>
Yes you who must leave everything that you cannot control.<br>
It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul.<br>
Well I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see how you're pinned:<br>
When you're not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you've sinned.<br><br>
Well they lay down beside me, I made my confession to them.<br>
They touched both my eyes and I touched the dew on their hem.<br>
If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn<br>
they will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem.<br><br>
When I left they were sleeping, I hope you run into them soon.<br>
Don't turn on the lights, you can read their address by the moon.<br>
And you won't make me jealous if I hear that they sweetened your night:<br>
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right,<br>
We weren't lovers like that and besides it would still be all right.

There are certain songs that hit me like a ton of bricks. They hit me for different reasons. The list includes, but isn't limited to:<br><br><b>The River</b> - Garth Brooks<br><br>
Especially:<br><br><i>Too many times we stand aside<br>
And let the waters slip away<br>
Till what we put off till tomorrow<br>
Has now become today,<br>
So don't you sit upon the shoreline<br>
And say you're satisfied.<br>
Choose to chance the rapids<br>
And dare to dance the tides.</i><br><br><b>Angels Among Us</b> - Alabama<br><b>One More Day</b> - Diamond Rio<br><br>
especially when I hear it set to <a href="" target="_blank">this video</a> on YouTube<br><br><b>What Might Have Been</b> - Little Texas<br><br>
especially<br><br><i>I try not to think about what might have been,<br>
Cause that was then<br>
And we have taken different roads.<br>
We can't go back again,<br>
There's no use giving in,<br>
And there's no way to know<br>
What might have been.</i><br><br><b>The Time Machine</b> - Collin Raye<br>
especialy:<br><br><i>To the casual eye it's a barstool<br>
But it's really much more than it seems<br>
Just a few drinks and then,<br>
She'll be with him again,<br>
As he sits on the time machine</i><br><br>
...and...<br><br><i>But tonight he's tired of the lonely,<br>
And tomorrow will not be the cure.<br>
So he'll just slip away,<br>
Find yesterday,<br>
And spend one more night with her.<br>
Now as far as the customers can tell,<br>
He's just one more fool<br>
That talks to himself.<br>
But every man in this place would line up<br>
If they knew what that seat really was.<br><br>
To the casual eye it's a barstool<br>
But it's really much more than it seems<br>
Just a few drinks and then<br>
She'll be with him again<br>
As he sits on the time machine.</i><br><br><b>Not That Different</b> - Collin Raye<br><br><b>A Bad Goodbye</b> - Clint Black<br><br><b>I Hope You Dance</b> - Leann Womack<br><br>
especially:<br><br><i>I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance<br>
Never settle for the path of least resistance<br>
Livin might mean taking chances<br>
But there worth taking<br>
Loving might be a mistake<br>
But it's worth making.</i><br><br><b>I Got It Honest</b> - Aaron Tippin<br><br>
especially:<br><br><i>I've never had to hang my head in shame<br>
For putting a pricetag on my name.<br>
Never turned my back on what I believe<br>
Or let my heart be ruled by greed.<br>
Cause brother if I didn't <b>EARN</b> it,<br>
I don't want it.<br>
That way I can always say<br>
I got it honest.</i><br><br><b>You Got To Stand For Something</b> - Aaron Tippin<br><br>
especially:<br><br><i>You got to stand for something<br>
Or you'll fall for anything<br>
You got to be your own man<br>
Not a puppet on a string.<br>
Never compromise what's right,<br>
And uphold your family name.<br>
You got to stand for something,<br>
Or you'll fall for anything.</i><br><br>
and<br><br><i><b>WHATEVER YOU DO TODAY, YOU GOT TO SLEEP WITH TONIGHT</b></i><br><br><b>My Wish</b> - Rascal Flatts - pretty much the whole song<br><br><b>Look At You Girl</b> - Chris Ledoux <i>Really Makes Me Miss Someone</i><br><b>Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough</b> - Patty Smyth<br><br>
There is also one that, whenever I hear it, I start daydreaming about qualifying for Boston. <b>One Moment In Time</b> - by Whitney Houston.
