Table For Two

Danny and I spent another late night over pancakes,
Talkin' 'bout soccer
And how every man's just the same
We made speculation
On the who's and the when's of our futures
And how everyone's lonely
But still we just couldn't complain

And how we just hate being alone
Could I have missed my only chance
And now I'm just wasting my time
By looking around
But you know I know better
I'm not gonna worry 'bout nothing
Cause if the birds and the flowers survive
Then I'll make it okay
I'm given a chance and a rock
see which one breaks a window
See which one keeps me up all night and into the day

Because I'm so scared of being alone
That I forget what house I live in
But it's not my job to wait by the phone
For her to call

Well this day's been crazy
But everything's happened on schedule
from the rain and the cold
To the drink that I spilled on my shirt
'Cause You knew how You'd save me
before I fell dead in the garden
And You knew this day
long before You made me out of dirt

And You know the plans that You have for me
And You can't plan the end and not plan the means
And so I suppose I just need some peace
Just to get me to sleep.

~ By Caedmon's Call

Hey! This is so funny, I started reading this and I thought you were telling us about hanging out with your friend Danny and soccer and stuff, then I kept reading and I was like...wait a minute, I think this is a song or something...of course it was! Funny. Hope you are doing well! Blessings to you!

Emily! Ha! You're great for my ego! What a compliment! Often, song lyrics describe exactly how I'm feeling and there's no need to say anything more. There are many Caedmon's Call songs such as this. I drive all over the place and constantly have my iPod on. I always think of all these great 'posts' to talk about, but by the time I get in front of the computer, my thoughts have flown the coup. I "wrote" one on the way to church today; we'll see if I can find it again. But anyway, good hearing from you!
