I remember, in a romantic gesture, I had compiled all the songs that were a virtual soundtrack to our love onto a CD. Hearing one of those songs now, makes me turn the station. But I miss being able to listen to those songs without them being tainted by memories.

I remember that night I was able to finally get my wife to at least attempt a slow dance with me to one of those songs. She can’t dance. Which is cool, but I sure would have loved it if she would have made more of an effort at times. I’m a mush ball for that stuff.

Since all this crap has taken place, I’m finding some songs just say it best. Instead of a romantic CD, I’m compiling my “Gee this sucks, I’m gonna cry and you’re a . . . ” CD.

My songs:

Barely Breathing – Duncan Sheik . . This song is so perfect, it’s my anthem to this whole mess.

Here’s A Quarter (call someone who cares) – Travis Tritt

Hallelujah – So many covers, but Damien Rice does it for me.

Stronger- Sara Evans

Bee Gees – Jive Talkin’

The Reflex – Duran Duran

You’ll Think Of Me- Keith Urban

I’m sure there’s more to move me, but so far these seem to make me feel less alone knowing someone penned these lyrics. It’s validation the things I feel aren’t so alien.

***. Update

This song is just, too perfect right now.

Hey woman, you got the blues, cos you aint got no one else to use.
There’s an open road that leads nowhere, so just make some miles
Between here and there.
There’s a hole in my head where the rain comes in,
You took my body and played to win,
Ha ha woman it’s a crying shame,
But you aint got nobody else to blame.

E-evil woman, e-evil woman, e-evil woman, evil woman

Rolled in from another town,
Hit some gold too hot to settle down,
But a fool and his money soon go separate ways,
And you found a fool lyin in a daze,
Ha ha woman what you gonna do,
You destroyed all the virtues that the lord gave you,
It’s so good that you’re feeling pain,
But you better get your face on board the very next train.

[Chorus: Repeat]

Evil woman how you done me wrong,
But now you’re tryin to wail a different song,
Ha ha funny how you broke me up, you made the wine now you
Drink the cup,
I came runnin every time you cried,
Thought I saw love smilin in your eyes,
Ha ha very nice to know, that you aint got no place left to go.
