Please help me not give in

I sit here, soaked in baking soda, vinegar and tears. There's never a time in my life that this song hasn't applied. And, six years later, it still brings me down from scrubbing cabinets, to a genuflection of pure sorrow and pain.

Katie Todd

Breathe deep
in light of what is all around you
but don't speak
words are becoming your worst enemy

Seize the day
do you have something you can sink your teeth into
In a stale place
are you able to cry or make a silly face

At the end of the day
you just aren't the same

please don't give in

Are you set in your ways
is there room for change

*please don't give in*

That makes me think of Peter Gabriel's song, Don't Give Up.
I particularly like this version by Willie Nelson and Sinead O'Connor.

This is very nice music. I thank you. I am also liking the Willie Nelson. He is very high.

Missy, it's funny that you mention this album. I was OBSESSED with this album when I was growing up.
And, the Nelson/Conner version is lovely. Thank you for sharing! &=)

Haha, Agnar, yes, Willie is usually very high. &=D
