u2's cds have ALWAYS been a pretty accurate reflection of what's going on in my

life...so...with the whispers of a cd in the 'can' (no Tam...not THAT can) and

a potential release date of this fall (please make it a late summer release!!)

 

I found myself while in the throws of self pity/pain over my house situation...

wondering...what will be my soundtrack this fall?

 

You see, as I cannot afford the cost of an attorney (min $3500) a community

legal aid attorney (who can only speak w/me by phone..not be there for hearings

etc)told me to 'just breathe'....now...for a NORMAL person that would be followed

by deep breathing...for u2 lovers...the sound naturally started through my u2 brainaka heart

and yes...went directly to...

 

"16th of June, nine 0 five, door bell rings

Man at the door says if I want to stay alive a bit longer

There's a few things I need you to know. Three

 

Coming from a long line of traveling sales people on my mother's side

I wasn't gonna buy just anyone's cockatoo

So why would I invite a complete stranger into my home

Would you?"

 

These days.....yep...I'm awaiting JP Morgan Chase to serve me w/legal papers and I DO have to let that stranger into my door....

 

Because I DO want to STAY A LIVE a bit longer....

 

So, what is the current u2 theme song to your life?

 

No one can aspire to Bono's lyrics, so I wont go there...but for me, other than

hearing either Mary J. Blige's "No More Drama" or Aretha Franklin's "Freedom" in my

head...I could use some potential sound bites!!

 

I continue to hold a candle for the ORIGINAL "Mercy" but am MOST excited about what

I have NOT heard...

 

What about you?

The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now

Neon heart dayglo eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They're advertising in the skies
For people like us

And I miss you when you're not around
I'm getting ready to leave the ground...

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Don't look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs purple irises
The camera can't see

I've seen you walk unafraid
I've seen you in the clothes you made
Can you see the beauty inside of me?

What happened to the beauty I had inside of me

And I miss you when you're not around
I'm getting ready to leave the ground

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Time... time
Won't leave me as I am
But time won't take the boy out of this man

Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights

Nice one 123, that song just always makes my heart smile for some reason.

 

Mylifeline, I'm completely with you about the 'original' or demo version or whatever of Mercy, that track was just about perfect I.M.O.

 

For me.....my life soundtrack...has to be Elvis Presley and America.

 

It's all backwards, it makes no sense, there are themes of loss and desertion going both ways, there's searching and longing, and ultimately there is revelation; there is clarity but there is no certainty; and yet I'm happily married, but that's all we have.

 

Each other.
