Kate Walsh – It’s Never Over


 

Well it seems like I’m losing all the time
I gotta run up a bill
‘Till this dark horse is leaving
And I know you’ll be leaving

But a memory of distant 
You put a crown on my head
But I’m wishing you never had
‘Cause I have less than I ever have

But I know
When this streetl amp fades
You’re scheming up your next parade
And the time slowly climbs
‘Till you’re here

Days darken my days
I watch you play or pray
It’s never over
I’ll be waiting here wishing you were over here

It seems destiny means
How long you’ll play unfair
It’s never over
I’ll be waiting here wishing you really cared

When I’m seeing that look that’s in your eyes
You know I will be here
I’ll be giving you anything
Always giving you anything

But I know 
When this street lamp fades
You’re scheming up your next parade
Then you’re gone
Creeping home
And this feeling creeps in
Alone

Days darken my days
I watch you play or pray
It’s never over
I’ll be waiting here wishing you were over here

It seems destiny means
How long you will play unfair
It’s never over
I’ll be waiting here wishing you really cared

But it seems like I’m losing all the time
(It’s never over)
Gonna run up a bill 
(It’s never over)
(It’s never over)
How long must I think that you don’t care
(It’s never over)
You keep on changing your mind
(It’s never over)
(It’s never over)

 

Today’s Quotation: Washington Irving (1783-1859) – the nostalgia of friendship afar in time and space


 

Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.

And who could ever argue with that?  One thing said in so many ways, all meaning the same thing: Stories are more or less the memory of our life, memorialized, with or without the editing notes ( that would be the different versions of the same story as told to or written about.) So it is important to get your story right!
