• letters from home

    This song is the song that Jonathan has been thinking about and singing to him self i guess. I kinda understand why though. I miss him so much. heres the lyrics.

    My Dearest son, it's almost June
    I hope this letter catches up with you
    And finds you well
    It's been dry
    But they're callin' for rain
    And everything's the same old same
    In Johnsonville
    Your stubborn old daddy
    Ain't said too much
    But I'm sure you know
    He sends his love

    And she goes on...
    In a letter from home

    I hold it up and show my buddies
    Like we ain't scared
    And our boots ain't muddy
    And they all laugh
    Like there's something funny
    'Bout the way I talk
    When I say, "Mamma sends her best, ya'll"

    I fold it up and put it in my shirt
    Pick up my gun and get back to work
    And it keeps me drivin' on
    Waitin' on letters from home

    My dearest love, it's almost dawn
    I've been lyin' here all night long
    Wonderin' where you might be
    I saw your mamma
    And I showed her the ring
    Man on the television
    Said something
    So I couldn't sleep
    But I'll be alright,
    I'm just missin' you
    And this is me kissin' you
    X's and O's in a letter from home

    I hold it up and show my buddies
    Like we ain't scared
    And our boots ain't muddy
    And they all laugh
    'Cause she calls me honey,
    But they take it hard
    'Cause I don't read the good parts

    I fold it up and put it in my shirt
    Pick up my gun and get back to work
    And it keeps me drivin' on
    Waitin' on letters from home

    Dear son, I know I ain't written
    I'm Sittin' here tonight alone in the kitchen
    It occurs to me
    I might not have said it
    So I'll say it now...
    "Son, You make me proud"

    I hold it up and show my buddies
    Like we ain't scared
    And our boots ain't muddy
    But no one laughs
    'Cause there's ain't nothin' funny
    When a soldier cries
    And I just wipe my eyes

    I fold it up and put it in my shirt
    Pick up my gun and get back to work
    And it keeps me drivin' on
    Waitin' on letters from home

    "where'd u go, i miss u so, seems like its been forever since u been gone, please come back home." - if anyone knows me they know how close i am to jonathan and well this song has been making me think of him. And making me really miss him and wishing he was home.

    Got a new job working in a casino now as a supervior so i like it alot helps me keep my mind busy. but i still find ways of thinking about life and how much i miss jon and want him to come back home.
  • i love this song

    "Swing Life Away"

    Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
    Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
    Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

    We live on front porches and swing life away,
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

    I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
    The winter's so cold, summer's over too soon
    So let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

    I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
    But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
    We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go

    We live on front porches and swing life away,
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

    Swing life away [x4]

    ************************************
    this song is well fucking Awsome i love the lyrics mainly cause it really helps me well feel better. And not feel like a piece of shit. And it kinda discribes me mainly.

    i am going to go insane, seems like no matter what i do its never going to be good enough for my family. i just wish my family could see how happy music makes me. i use music to show my way of feeling at the time along with writing, and my family just downs me. I wish jonathan was home at least then i could talk to him, Oh well. Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisseslip gloss black

  • this artest....

    this artest has wrote some of the most beuatiful songs and sang some of the most wonderful music i can think of. Everytime i hear a song that reminds me of something in my life or in my past or even that is going on in my life right now. I eaither have a tear in my eye or the thought of wha it reminds me of in my mind. lately its been songs that remind me how much i love having jonathan in my life. And how much i love him. But i also have those songs that remind me of my past. Oh well. Keith UrbanBe HereMaking Memories of Us
