Sunday Song Lyrics and some perspective

This edition is dedicated to my long time good friend Brian who I just re-connected with after a long absence. Brian and I worked together when we lived in Wilmington and forged a bond that seemed impenetrable.

Then I moved away to Alaska. Then we sort of fell out with each other. Sure, there was the sporadic phone call now and then but today…it was like all the years fell away and we’d never been apart from each other.

I will say right now, that I don’t have a lot of close friends but the ones I do have? Are precious to me. Especially the ones who share my soul. Brian is one of those friends.

It seems that with all of the craziness in my life right now, God is sending friends my way. He is surrounding me with the people I need most in my life. I am humbled and grateful. My cup runneth over.

I plan to see most of my small circle of friends when I get back to NC. I already know it’s going to be exactly the dose of strength I need. With them surrounding me, I will feel invincible. And the ones I won’t get to see (Heather, Jenni) or the ones who won’t get to travel with me (Dusty) will be rooting for me all the same.

Meanwhile, here’s to you, B. I love you beyond measure.

Who Says You Can’t Go Home-performed by Jennifer Nettles and Jon Bon Jovi 

spent 20 years trying to get out of this place
I was looking for something I couldn’t replace
I was running away from the only thing I’ve ever known
Like a blind dog without a bone
I was a gypsy lost in the twilight zone
I hijacked a rainbow and crashed into a pot of gold
I been there, done that and I ain’t lookin’ back on the seeds I’ve sown,
Saving dimes, spending too much time on the telephone
Who says you can’t go home

Who says you can’t go home
There’s only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy, born a rolling stone, who says you can’t go home
Who says you can’t go back, been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There’s only one place left I want to go, who says you can’t go home
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, its alright

I went as far as I could, I tried to find a new face
There isn’t one of these lines that I would erase
I lived a million miles of memories on that road
With every step I take I know that I’m not alone
You take the home from the boy, but not the boy from his home
These are my streets, the only life I’ve ever known,
who says you can’t go home


I been there, done that and I ain’t looking that
It’s been a long long road
Feels like I never left, that’s how the story goes

It doesn’t matter where you are, it doesn’t matter where you go
If it’s a million miles aways or just a mile up the road
Take it in, take it with you when you go,
who says you can’t go home
