Random Inspiration #17 {lovely lyrics} <3


It’s raining today! Yay!!

Here are some of my favorite song lyrics and some of my pics!

“Old days
Good times I remember
Fun days
Filled with simple pleasures
Drive-in movies
Comic books and blue jeans
Howdy Doody
Baseball cards and birthdays
Take me back
To a world gone away
Seem like yesterday” ~ Chicago (Old Days)

Beautiful nostalgic song!!


“Stand up in a clear blue morning 
Until you see 
What can be
Alone in a cold day dawning, 
Are you still free? 
Can you be?
When some cold tomorrow finds you,
When some sad old dream reminds you
How the endless road unwinds you 
While you see a chance take it” ~ Steve Winwood (While You See a Chance)


“All that I am 
All that I see
All that I been 
And all that I’ll ever be
Is a blessing 
It’s so amazing 
And I’m grateful for it all.” ~ Nimo Patel

(Grateful – A love song to the world) 


“I’ll be yours in springtime when the flowers are in bloom.
We’ll wander through the meadows, in all their sweet perfume.
And every night I’ll hold you tight beneath that April moon” ~ Domenic Bugatti & Frank Muskeer

(Girl For All Seasons) 


“Now you better believe the writing on the wall
All for one one for all
Woman to woman and man to man
Face to face heart to heart hand to hand” ~ Hall & Oates 

(Mano A Mano)


“I was living for a dream
Loving for a moment
Taking on the world
That was just my style
Then I touched your hand
I could hear you whisper
The search is over
Love was right before my eyes” ~ Survivor 
(The Search is Over)


(this is Elvis, he loves kissing himself in mirrors and chewing up the walls!)

“Hold on to the nights
Hold on to the memories
I wish that I could give you something more
That I could be yours” ~ Richard Marx
(Hold Onto the Nights)

“While there is time
Let’s go out and feel everything
If you hold me
I will let you into my dream
For time is a river rolling into nowhere
We must live while we can
And we’ll drink our cup of laughter” ~ Steve Winwood 
(The Finer Things)


“This is the time to remember
Cause it will not last forever
These are the days
To hold on to
Cause we won’t
Although we want to
This is the time
But time is gonna change
I know we’ve got to move somehow
But I don’t want to lose you now” ~ Billy Joel 
(This is the Time)


“I’ve been sitting here so long
Wasting time, just staring at the phone
And I was wondering should I call you
Then I thought maybe you’re not alone” ~ Phil Collins 

(One More Night)


“Deep in my soul, I’ve been so lonely
All of my hopes, fading away
I’ve longed for love, like everyone else does
I know I’ll keep searching, even after today
So there it is girl, I’ve said it all now
And here we are babe, what do you say?
We’ve got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
We’ve got tonight babe
Why don’t you stay?” ~ Bob Seger
(We’ve Got Tonight)


“And I’ll never be the same without you here
I’ll live alone and hide myself behind my tears
And I’ll never be the same without your love
I’ll live alone and try so hard to rise above” ~ Christopher Cross
(Never Be the Same)

This is the song I shared two years ago in loving memory of my dog Koko who died of old age. I think of her every single day and still grieve for her and always will. A part of me will always be missing. But I’m thankful she was my girl and had a beautiful life for fourteen years and twelve years with my family and me. Sometimes the grief comes flooding back so raw just like when we lost her. Sometimes I still find it difficult to look at pictures of her but I’m so happy I have them. I can think of her and smile and laugh at the funny memories now even with the pain. Koko was beautiful with a calm, quiet personality. She was loving and would constantly give kissies. She loved sleeping on my chest and was always by my side for twelve years. She loved slim Jims and Vanilla cream horns, like she’s eating in this pic, and her best friend Boobie, my other dog.

❤ Koko was born in April 1999 and died April 7th two years ago in 2013. We were getting ready to celebrate her birthday on April 14th with my other dog Isis whose birthday is that day. But she died one week before. I will never be the same. Sometimes I still find it hard to move forward. She was blessed and so am I. She died peacefully, naturally, and loved. It’s like my life split in half then and now everything is “before and after.” Before Koko died and after Koko died. At first I felt like I couldn’t go on then I realized I can but sometimes when my grief becomes overwhelming, it feels like it was all a mistake and I can’t go on. But I know I can. My worst pain is knowing Koko can never experience what she loved ever again. She can never taste her vanilla cream horns or sleep in our blankies again or snuggle with her best friend, Boobie. But for twelve years she got to do all that and that brings me a sense of consolation.


“It’s gonna be a cool night
Just let me hold you
By the firelight
If it don’t feel right
You can go” ~ Paul Davis 


“Well I know tonight she comes 
She jangles me up 
She does it with ease 
And sometimes she passes through me 
Just like a breeze 
She gives me a reason 
For feelin’ all right ” ~ The Cars

(Tonight She Comes)


I hope you’re having a beautiful day/night, much love to you!!
