Bittersweet Symphony--The Verve

I ALWAYS have a song in my head. Whether it is a song I heard that got caught in my head or it is pertinent to what is going on in my life, there's always a song. It is why I title my blog posts with song titles (though I am going to venture into movie and TV show titles, too, I think). I discuss a topic and a song title comes to mind. Maybe it it because the lyrics are pertinent to what I have going on at the time. Sometimes it is just that the title itself works even though the lyrics aren't close to my situation An interesting fact about my blog, but I digress...

When Tyler was here last week my song brain went into overload. As I waited for him to come home Wednesday the song Run by George Strait was stuck in my head. The refrain goes like this:
Baby run cut a path across the blue skies
Straight in a straight line you can't get here fast enough
Find a truck and fire it up lean on the gas and off the clutch
Leave Dallas in the dust I need you in a rush
So baby run

On Saturday the song in my head was One More Day by Diamond Rio. The whole song was on loop in my head all day:
Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me,
It could be for anything
I didn't ask for money
Or a mansion in malibu
I simply wished, for one more day with you

Chorus

One more day
One more time
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again
I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still, for one more day with you

First thing I'd do, is pray for time to crawl
Then I'd unplug the telephone
And keep the tv off
I'd hold you every second
Say a million I love you's
That's what I'd do. With one more day with you

Chorus

Leave me wishing still for one more day
Leave me wishing still for one more day

At 4:30am Sunday as I leaned against the closed door crying after Tyler left it was Let Her Cry by Hootie and the Blowfish:
Let her cry...if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing...if it eases all her pain
Let her go...let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be...let her be.

Sunday around 11:30am it was the old song Just a Little Talk With Jesus:
I may have doubts and fears, my eyes be filled with tears,
But Jesus is a friend who watches day and night;
I go to Him in prayer, He knows my ev'ry care,
And just a little talk with Jesus makes it right.

When I sat down to think about the time with Tyler the song Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve, or more specifically this particular line) seemed to sum it up:
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life

It was a great weekend with Tyler, but he's back in Wisconsin and only 6 days from Kuwait. I miss him so much and only God can ease that.
