12/19…of the day

Verse of the Day:
“When I left the womb you cradled me;
since the moment of birth you’ve been my God.”
~Ps 22:10

Quote of the Day:
“Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you are to become who you will be.”
~Carrie, SATC

Lyrics of the Day:
“If I had the chance, love
I would not hesitate
To tell you all the things I’d never said before
Don’t tell me it’s too late
‘Cause I’ve relied on my illusions
To keep me warm at night
And I’ve denied in my capacity to love
But I am willing to give up this fight

I’ve been up all night drinking
To drown my sorrows down
But nothing seems to help me since you went away
I’m so tired of this town
Where every tongue is wagging
Where every back is turned
They’re telling secrets that should never be revealed
There’s nothing to be gained from this but disaster

Here’s a good one
Did you hear about my friend
He’s embarrassed to be seen now
‘Cause we all know his sins

If I had the chance, love
I would not hesitate
To tell you all the things I’d never said before
Don’t tell me it’s too late
‘Cause I’ve relied on my illusions
To keep me warm at night
And I’ve denied in my capacity to love
But I am willing to give up this fight
Oh I am willing to give up this fight”
~ Sarah McLachlan, “Dirty Little Secrets”
