Blog the Beat: Don’t Stop Believin’

BtB-Dont Stop Believin

So much for getting caught up over the weekend lol. I completely forgot about Father’s Day so most of the weekend was occupied by such. I hope to get back to regular blogging soon, but for now, this challenge will suffice. Really a difficult one for me, I’m not sure why but yay for things coming together in the end.

Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’

Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world 
She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere 
Just a city boy, born and raised in south Detroit 
He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere 

A singer in a smokey room 
A smell of wine and cheap perfume 
For a smile they can share the night 
It goes on and on and on and on 

(Chorus) 
Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard 
Their shadows searching in the night 
Streetlights people, living just to find emotion 
Hiding, somewhere in the night. 

Working hard to get my fill, 
Everybody wants a thrill 
Payin’ anything to roll the dice, 
Just one more time 
Some will win, some will lose 
Some were born to sing the blues 
Oh, the movie never ends 
It goes on and on and on and on 

(Chorus) 

Don’t stop believin’ 
Hold on to the feelin’ 
Streetlights people 

Don’t stop believin’ 
Hold on 
Streetlight people 

Don’t stop believin’ 
Hold on to the feelin’ 
Streetlights people

Blog the Beat: Poison & Wine

Poison and Wine

So I’m a tad behind on my Blog the Beat posts. I ran into some difficulty trying to figure out how to do #2. Not much to say on this except that I’m hoping to be caught up by weekend’s close. Happy Friday btw 🙂

You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don’t want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
I always willI wish you’d hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don’t have a choice but I’d still choose you
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
I always will

Mirrors

Hi world, I’m back. My apologies for not being around a lot lately. I spent much of the last month sick on and off, battling what felt like every little bug and it’s mother’s brother. Not to overshare but we’ll just say the bathroom and I have become very close over the last few weeks. I’m still not 100% but at least this time it’s only a minor cold. I’ve missed out on a lot of things and if I was supposed to blog any events or particular products, my sincerest apologies to you.

Since there were a ton of meme’s and challenges that have come out recently, it’s been rather difficult for me to decide which ones I want to participate in. I found  Harlow Heslop’s Blog the Beat Challenge and it’s early on enough that I can join in without feeling the need to catch up too much. So here’s my rather quick take on Week 1:

MIrrors

Mirrors by Justin Timberlake

 Aren’t you somethin’ to admire?
Cause your shine is somethin’ like a mirror
And I can’t help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine
If you ever feel alone and
The glare makes me hard to find
Just know that I’m always
Parallel on the other side

Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go
Just put your hand on the glass
I’ll be tryin’ to pull you through
You just gotta be strong

‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you now
I’m lookin’ right at the other half of me
The vacancy that sat in my heart
Is a space that now you hold
Show me how to fight for now
And I’ll tell you, baby, it was easy
Comin’ back here to you once I figured it out
You were right here all along

It’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me
I couldn’t get any bigger
With anyone else beside of me
And now it’s clear as this promise
That we’re making
Two reflections into one
Cause it’s like you’re my mirror
My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me
