can't think of a song title

It came to me last night. Mr. Song. I'm pretty happy about it. I thought I'd share it with you folks. I'll even put the chords and all. But don't think about making it your own! Also, I don't think I have ever blogged my own personal work. So don't laugh.

Capo 3, (Title unknown)

Verse 1 - When you're alone, I'm beside you (D, Em, G)
When you're alone, I'm here (D, Em, G)
And when you're feeling like all is gone D, Em, G)
Don't give up, have no fear (D, A, D)

Verse 2 - As you sit there by yourself (D, Em, G)
Don't forget who you are (D, Em, G)
And just when it seems that the world is lost (D, Em, G)
Remember that I still care (D, A, D)

Chorus - When you walked outside that door (F, C)
You took on the weight of the world (F, C)
It pushed you down but I picked you up (F, Am)
And now you finally see... (Bb, G)

Verse 3 - ...Just what it feels like to forget everything (D, Em, G)
Isn't that what you wanted? (D, Em, G)
Now I'm confused and traveling (D, Em, G)
Along this endless road I'm on (D, Em, G)

Bridge - And I just need some water and a place to rest (D, Em, G)
Please come and rescue me (D, A, D)

Chorus2 - Now I hear you coming down (F, C)
It sounds like a million trains (F, C)
I'm at the end of this rugged rope (F, Am)
And I'm the only one to blame (Bb, G)

Verse 4 - But you saved me, saved me (D, Em, G)
From the depths of my despair (D, Em, G)
Forever grateful, I am yours (D, Em, G)
I'll always be right here (D, A, D)

the weight / bring the funk

To borrow the title from Conor Oberst's 2005 Bright Eyes album, "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning." And that is precisely how I am feeling at this present moment. My darling left for work half an hour ago. I began the morning by playing some guitar and listening to The Band's song, 'The Weight' which sounds remarkably like Caedmon's new song or is it the other way around...

I'm to begin work at 12 today so I'm just relaxing before the major grunt work but I don't mind. I'll be outside today which is a nice break from the duties at the store.

I thought I had more to say but I guess I don't. Except that. Except that. Except that.

feel like my life is being strummed with a hard pick

Having a job is a funny thing. Working to live is our punishment isn't it? So then I don't understand people who love their job... I don't think anyone can truly love their work because we are human and we stress out. Anyway, not sure where that thought was going. My job lately has been a blessing from God. He came through as always and I am trying to be grateful by not complaining while working. Oh, I work for a Christian bookstore in Belleville called New Vision, but really I'm helping the owner's husband at his house doing renovations and landscaping. We recently finished the first part of a deck and this week, we'll be fixing up his garage. Argh argh argh.

In my personal life, I've dove into a myriad of new bands. I'm willing to listen to anything except rap and country. No one likes that music anyway. I'm really diggin' the new Derek Webb record 'The Ringing Bell'. I'm still heavy into Muse and re-listening to the White Stripes all over again and falling in love with them!

Reading over what I just wrote makes me realize how dull my writing is! It makes me laugh. I guess I need to be practicing more.

Man, it's hot in Belleville but it's cool tonight.
