Friday Song Lyrics

It's been *quite* the week over here in the land of Pink Cereal and Raspberries (and after a fairly organized venting session at the staff meeting at work this morning, I realize that it's not just been me that's feeling stressed to the point of craziness!), so I figure it's time for a little music...wouldn't you agree?

1) Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel
Because hearing Maggie Gyllenhaal sing it in the movie Happy Endings somehow made the song make even more sense than it already did. It's a good song. And it's true.

Don't go changing, to try and please me
You never let me down before
Don't imagine you're too familiar
And I don't see you anymore
I wouldn't leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
I'll take you just the way you are

Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are.

I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you.

I said I love you and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are.

2)Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper
Because I really need a wonderful, relaxing, fun, happy weekend (don't we all?!).

When the working day is done,
Oh,girls,
They wanna have fu-un,
Oh,girls,
Just wanna have fun....

Girls,
They want,
Wanna have fun.
Girls,
Wanna have

Some boys take a beautiful girl,
And hide her away from the rest of the world.
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun.
Oh,girls,
They wanna have fu-un.
Oh,girls,
Just wanna have
That's all they really want.....
Some fun....

3) I Love You by Sarah McLachlin
Because it makes me smile. Because I woke up this morning thinking I was in Berkeley. Because I loved this song so much when I was in college.

I have a smile
Stretched from ear to ear
To see you walking down the road

We meet at the lights
I stare for a while
The world around disappears

Just you and me
On this island of hope
A breath between us could be miles

Let me surround you
My sea to your shore
Let me be the calm you seek

Oh and every time I’m close to you
There’s too much I can’t say
And you just walk away

And I forgot
To tell you
I love you
And the night’s
Too long
And cold here
Without you
I grieve in my condition
For I cannot find the strength to say I need you so

Oh and every time I’m close to you
There’s too much I can’t say
And you just walk away

And I forgot
To tell you
I love you
And the night’s
Too long
And cold here
Without you

4)Who Am I by Casting Crowns
Because I've been asking myself a lot of these questions lately.

Who am I?
That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I?
That the bright and morning star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wandering heart.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.

I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.
I am yours.

5) Rockstar by Nickelback
Because it's a new-ish song that seems to have caught my attention.

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me

Great pics! There's never a moment where Billy Joel wouldn't fit it perfectly!
