Daily Intimidation in the Life of a Woman

I've been struggling here lately with the reality of being a woman in a very 'man's world'. Almost everyday I am made to feel belittled, insecure, uncomfortable. I've built a fairly simple defense system I think... a simple smirk, maybe a shake of the head, then carry on about my business. What more can I do? I can't say any of the things that are really bobbing around in my head because it would only add more fuel to the fire. Like an instance a couple weeks ago when I tried to fend off some overly inebriated shithead who suddenly thought he had all the right to talk to me the way he so chose. The more I stood up for myself, the more I was harassed. Inevitably, all I really could do was walk away, which is what I guess I should have done in the first place. It's funny though; my friends rarely stand up for me, even in situations like this, because maybe they think I won't let them? Maybe they think I'm already saying all the right things a…

Come Hell or High Water

Slow down; breathe. Time almost means nothing in instances like this, that is except when you have a flight to catch.

Never in my life have I had something so special. Never in my life has someone given me so much in such a short period of time, or given me these things that are so much more meaningful than anything I have ever had the privledge of receiving. Things such as words tucked away in pages safe and sound, paralleling all that I ever felt constantly tugging at my heartstrings. A prolonged and emotional good bye in a light that seemed more like the beginning. A ticket to Tokyo. Yoyogi. A perfect dinner complete with proposals of "expectations" so young, that have already made me feel more alive than ever before. The mysteries of the delaying rain. A parcel delivering genuine everythings. A wholesome heart that holds me close with delicate care. A mind that amazes and intrigues me every imaginable moment. And now... a suprise ticket to............... me. I've neve…

"Time And Confusion"

woah oh, yeah-ah
woah oh, yeah-ah
woah oh

live for today
we'll dream tomorrow
we've got big plans in sight
we'll take this city and by nightfall...
the bright lights are calling

everything is going our way
everything is just as we've planned
this is our future (from what we've heard)
and i've still got your hand

and it feels like we could last forever
and i'm not doing this alone

[Chorus]
when memories fade
we've got each other
when time and confusion collide
singin' i hold it all when i hold you
when friends walk other ways
we've got each other
i hold it all when i hold
i hold it all when i hold you

woah oh, yeah-ah
woah oh, yeah-ah
woah oh

we fell on hard times
this isn't the ideal
we're miles from home
doing the best that we can (best that we can)

i won't do this without you
i won't do this without you
so take heart...
'cause you know that you have mine

and it feels like we could last forever
and i'm not doing to do this alone

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
its not ab…

"Hey There Delilah"

Hey there Delilah
What's it like in New York City?
I'm a thousand miles away
But girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can't shine as bright as you
I swear it's true

Hey there Delilah
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice it's my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me girl
Someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it&…
