Martha Staples... also sometime in the 70's I stood in line to go see the Doobie Brothers... but could not bring myself to go in to see them either... and because I was underage, And I couldn't actually go in to see Patti Smith at a bar called The Place, but we stood outside in the back where we could hear her, but then things got rather hostile when I believe Patti Kicked someone in the audience... I think that's about it Artists/ Bands I would like to see: Marianne Faithfull, Rilo Kiley, Pearl Jam, (in a small venue) Jose Gonzales, Arcadia Fire. that's all I can think of right now

    Leaving your whole life behind

    Hi Unjust, Welcome to DepressionForum...I'm so sorry for what you are experiencing.... we never know what life is going to throw at us.... one day everything seems fine... then the next day you have to figure out how to live differently and the day to day existence drastically changes... I only wish I could be brave one day and move far away from where I am... I think about it constantly... The only thing is... a person has to be sure of where they are going... I think, even if I have a minimal support system here.... at least I have that... In my frame of mind these days I am challenged to the point that I find it extremely difficult to meet new people and develop friendships.. so I would be most concerned if I moved and I didn't know anyone as I would probably become more depressed and anxious. I only have what is left of my family (brother, sister, my daughter and two grandkids) and it's comforting to know I can drive over to visit my sister in 15 minutes... But if you are determined and become strong enough...and have the means to move to another place, there is something to be said about beginning fresh in new surroundings...

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Stay Alive, (Jose Gonzales) There’s a rhythm in rush these days Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams In a world gone shallow In a world gone lean Sometimes there’s things a man cannot know Gears won’t turn and the leaves won’t grow There’s no place to run and no gasoline Engine won’t turn And the train won’t leave Engines won’t turn and the train won’t leave I will stay with you tonight Hold you close ‘til the morning light In the morning watch a new day rise We’ll do whatever just to stay alive We’ll do whatever just to stay alive Well the way I feel is the way I write It isn’t like the thoughts of the man who lies There is a truth and it’s on our side Dawn is coming Open your eyes Look into the sun as the new days rise And I will wait for you tonight You’re here forever and you’re by my side I’ve been waiting all my life To feel your heart as it’s keeping time We’ll do whatever just to stay alive Dawn is coming Open your eyes Dawn is coming Open your eyes

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Soundtrack (Jose Gonzales) Step in front of a runaway trainJust to feel alive againPushing forward through the nightAching chest and blurry sight...It's so far, so far awayIt's so far, so far awayCold wind blows into the skinCan't believe the state you're in..It's so far, so far awayIt's so far, so far away Who are you trying to impress?Steadily creating a mess?Step in front of a runaway train......Just to feel alive again...Pushing forward through the nightAching chest and blurry sight......

    Ballerina, Leona Naess (if you listen to this song,,, it's a real tearjerker...) I'll never feel the weight of your hands Inside mine like diamonds Lace so fine ballerina Cupcake and my earthquake Wakes me from my sleep that Never comes, are you breathing Waiting for me I didn't really want you But I want you now Was so foolish of me Feel you tumbling down Into that empty room The lights went out I want to rescue want to scream out loud I didn't think I needed you But I need you now Was so empty in me Feel you crashing down Into the empty world The music stops I want to rescue want to scream out loud You will always be mine The room spins Pull you from me My body burns Tell me all the rainbows The colors that the rain throws Ballerina dance softly She knows when to come only When she's called on slowly coming to I didn't really want you But I need you Was so foolish of me Feel you tumbling down Into that empty room The lights went out Want to rescue want to scream out loud I didn't think I wanted you But I want you now Was so empty in me Feel you crashing down Into the empty world The music stops I want to rescue want to scream out loud You will always be mine So so sorry Just come back for me now So so sorry Just come back to me now Or soon I didn't think I wanted you But I want you now Was so foolish of me Feel you tumbling down Into that empty room The lights went out Wanted to rescue want to scream out loud I didn't think I needed you But I need you now Was so empty in me Feel you tumbling down Into that empty room The lights went out I want to rescue want to scream out loud That you will always be mine

    Don Henley, Boys of Summer.... ....Out on the road today I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac A little voice inside my head said Don't look back, you can never look back.... I thought I knew what love was What did I know? Those days are gone forever I should just let 'em go, but.....

    Song Lyrics Thread

    The Ballad of Lucy Jordan The morning sun touched lightly on The eyes of Lucy Jordan In a white suburban bedroom In a white suburban town And she lay there neath the covers Dreaming of a thousand lovers Til the world turned to orange And the room went spinning round... At the age of 37 She realized she'd never ride Through Paris in a sports car With the warm wind in her hair So she let the phone keep ringing As she sat there softly singing Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized In her Daddy's easy chair... Her husband he's off to work And the kids are off to school And there were oh so many ways For her to spend her days She could clean the house for hours Or rearrange the flowers Or run naked through the shady street Screaming all the way.... At the age of 37 She realized she'd never ride Through Paris in a sports car With the warm wind in her hair So she let the phone keep ringing As she sat there softly singing Pretty nursery rhymes she'd memorized In her Daddy's easy chair... The evening sun touched gently on The eyes of Lucy Jordan On the rooftop where she climbed When all the laughter grew too loud And she bowed and curtsied to the man Who reached and offered her his hand And he led her down to the long white car That waited past the crowd... At the age of 37 She knew she'd found forever As she rode along through Paris With the warm wind in her hair..... Written by Shel Silverstein also recorded by Marianne Faithfull

    What Did You Do Today?

    I am an earlier riser.. so I decided about 6 months ago to volunteer at our local Mission at Breakfast time every Saturday... and even on Sundays sometimes... This has been one of my many tools for dealing with my chronic depressive condition. I feel so great afterwards.. it gives me a sense of belonging.. it's like a meditative experience,,, so, that is what I have done so far today...

    I figure.. if it's too stressful, then just an acknowledgement should do...
