My Music

We interrupt this breakup music list for a positive moodswing

Ok...so the weekend was kind of a blur. It wasn't all great (for reasons I can't go into) but I did find out who my friends are. I also gained confidence because despite the hard time I had dealing with some of it everyone said I looked fantastic! So I have been making an effort to move on and focus on the positive. By the way, yes NYM I had more than one drink and enjoyed myself immensely in the process. I am a cute happy drunk...at least I was this weekend. By the way, how is it that when you see a drunk girls friends trying to drag her out of a bar that everyone in the path offers her more free alcohol? Interesting stuff....ok, here's my new favorite song :-)

NOT GOING DOWN

I WOKE UP TODAY WITH A HEADACHE
MORE BILLS TO PAY THAN A CORPORATION
HEY, WHEN WILL IT END
MY MIRROR SAYS I COULD USE A BREAK
AN EASY DAY, SOME APPRECIATION
HEY HOW ‘BOUT A FRIEND
WHEN DAYS LIKE THESE START TO FALL IN ON ME
I GOTTA FACE MY REFLECTION AND SAY...HEY

CHORUS:
BEEN BURNED BY THE FIRE
BEEN STUCK UNDER WATER
STRUNG UP ON A WIRE AND STILL THE WORLD GOES AROUND
BEEN TOSSED LIKE A FREE THROW
KNOCKED OUT WHEN THE WIND BLOWS
PULL THE CURTAIN ON THE HURTIN’
‘CAUSE I’M NOT GOING DOWN
(I’M NOT GOING DOWN NO NO)

INSIDE OF ME IS THE ONLY
HIGHWAY THAT LEADS TO A TRUE FREEDOM
HOLDING OUT IT’S HAND
I CLOSE MY EYES AND IT’S ALL RIGHT
THE SUN WILL SHINE ON A NEW HORIZON
JUST AROUND THE BEND
DAYS LIKE THESE BRING OUT THE STRENGTH IN ME
SO I CAN FACE MY REFLECTION AND SAY...

REPEAT CHORUS

I STILL GET DIZZY AND FRANTIC, LONELY AND PANICED
BUT NEXT TIME I WON’T LET IT BEAT ME, NO
I CAN SEE CLEARLY, I KNOW WHO I AM
AND THAT’S HOW I KNOW I’VE BEGUN LIVING

REPEAT CHORUS (OUT)

Ya know, I don't even remember you drinking. Didn't Christina spill your Coke? Of course there is more than just one day in a weekend. But don't they seem that short?

Also, you forgot one of the world's best break-up songs on your list of break-up songs. "Goodbye to You" by Michelle Branch.
