ThePerfect Song...

Recommended Posts

I have always pretty much lived my life through song lyrics. Now am looking for that right song that would be perfect to that perfect woman. Quick insight to situation. We fell in love in high school. Were bf and gf until graduation, when her parents made her break it off because they were moving. I thought it was what she wanted. Worst heartache I ever knew, we really were perfect together. Self medicated with alcohol for many years. we ended up losing touch a few years after we graduated. both married others and have two kids each. (The morning of my weddng I could not think of anything except that it was supposed to be her, and wanted anything to happen to stop the weddng.) Yes, I know what kind of awful person that makes me. Anyway, I tried to be good husband and father. Eventually we did divorce, due to her choice. Meanwhile, my high school love had been living her life still holding on to feelings for me that I was never aware of. She and her husband are currently separating. several months ago, I was finally able to locate her, and we managed to see each other... For the near thirty years that we were apart, I had completely given up on true love, something I had always so strongly believed in.The day I saw her, after all those years, I immediately believed again. My love was as strong as ever. we are very much in love. And though we still have some tough maneuvers to get through, there is no doubt we are and always were meant to be together. So, whats the song that fits best?

"Dream To Live"
 

Set off for America far across the ragin' sea
From the frozen coves of my island home
To the land of liberty
I have to leave my girl behind
Until I make my way
Oh Molly dear please wait for me
I'll come back for you some day

We landed hard in Boston
and I'd never seen the like
A small boat boy from around the bay
In this sea of shining lights
Two days in I got a job
Building towers of high steel
I had to learn, to not look down
And I quickly learned to kneel

All I need is one good nights sleep
In your loving arms, to mend
We sleep to dream
And we dream to live
Will I live to love you again

I saved every cent I could
But the months turned into years
Then a letter came from Molly
and confirmed my deepest fears
She would no longer wait for me,
she'd found a better man
I might have been in America,
but my heart was broken
In Newfoundland

My working days are over now
And my children have all grown
I did the best with what I had
But some days I feel alone
I often wonder where you are
Do you still know my name
Deep inside this old man's heart
There's a love that still remains

 

The narrator is an emigrant from Eastern Canada, who left his true love behind, and ultimately lost her to a hometown guy. (Canadian English is hard to understand!?)

Same Old Lang Syne ~ Dan Fogelberg

Perfect song for the holiday season :P

 

Met my old lover in the grocery store
The snow was falling Christmas Eve
I stood behind her in the frozen foods
And I touched her on the sleeve

She didn't recognize the face at first
But then her eyes flew open wide
She went to hug me and she spilled her purse
And we laughed until we cried

We took her groceries to the check out stand
The food was totaled up and bagged
We stood there lost in our embarrassment
As the conversation lagged

We went to have ourselves a drink or two
But couldn't find an open bar
We bought a six-pack at the liquor store
And we drank it in her car

We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to now
We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
But neither one knew how

She said she's married her an architect
Who kept her warm and safe and dry
She would have liked to say she loved the man
But she didn't like to lie

I said the years had been a friend to her
And that her eyes were still as blue
But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I saw
Doubt or gratitude

She said she saw me in the record stores
And that I must be doing well
I said the audience was heavenly
But the traveling was Hell

We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to now
We tried to reach beyond the emptiness
But neither one knew how

We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to time
Reliving, in our eloquence
Another "Auld Lang Syne"

The beer was empty and our tongues were tired
And running out of things to say
She gave a kiss to me as I got out
And I watched her drive away

Just for a moment I was back at school
And felt that old familiar pain
And, as I turned to make my way back home
The snow turned into rain.....
