Friday Song Lyrics

First, Happy Birthday to one of my best friends in the entire world, even though she doesn't read this blog. She's known me since we were 13, claimed me as a friend since we were 14 and seen me through too many versions of me to count. She's been a tried and true friend, and I'm truly blessed to know her (she's even one of my inspirational women - she's the one in the first post). So, happy birthday, dahling, love you forever!

Okay, onto Friday Song Lyrics.

In honor of the special day, five songs from CDs she has given me ('cause we have our own little CD club, see...).

Many the Miles by Sara Bareilles

There's too many things that i haven't done yet
Too many sunsets
I haven't seen
You can't waste the day wishing it'd slow down
You would've thought by now
I'd have learned something

I made up my mind when i was a young girl
I've been given this one world
I won't worry it away
But now and again i lose sight of the good life
I get stuck in a low light
But then Love comes in

How far do i have to go to get to you
Many the miles
Many the miles
How far do i have to go to get to you
Many the miles
But send me the miles and i'll be happy to follow you Love

No Matter What by Boyzone

No matter what they tell us
No matter what they do
No matter what they teach us
What we believe is true

No matter what they call us
However they attack
No matter where they take us
We'll find our own way back

I can't deny what I believe
I can't be what I'm not

Suddenly I See by K.T. Tunstall

Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

Lazy Day Afternoon by Plain White T's

Nothing's going on, but I don't care
Leave me here, don't take me anywhere
Why should I get up
When I've got nothing to do?
Just another lazy day afternoon
Beautiful day outside, but I don't care
Everything I need I got right here
Why should I go out?
Why should I even move?
Just another lazy day afternoon
Afternoon, when everybody's workin'
I'd rather be a jerk and lay around
Afternoon, this day is just too perfect
Just another lazy day afternoon

I Don't Wanna Be by Gavin DeGraw

I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

I love the lyrics you posted - I am majorly into musicn and lyrics and the meaning of every singel song out there and it seems they all bear witness to one memory or another...

Yeah, there are songs that always make me think of certain friends...certain trips...certain good or bad days. {{sigh}} I feel another song lyrics day coming up soon!
