Brand New – The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows (Lyrics)

We saw the western coast
I saw the hospital
Nurse the shoreline like a wound
Reports of lover’s tryst
Were neither clear nor descript
We kept it safe and slow
The quiet things that no one ever knows
Keep the blood in your head and keep your feet on the ground
Today’s the day it gets tired
Then today’s the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals
I contemplate the day we wed
Your friends are boring me to death
Your veil is ruined in the rain
By then you like to do without
There’s nothing new to talk about
And though our kids are blessed,
the parents let them shoulder all the blame
Keep the blood in your head and keep your feet on the ground
Today’s the day it gets tired
Today’s the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals
I lie for only you
And I lie well
Halleluh
Keep the blood in your head and keep your feet on the ground
Today’s the day it gets tired
Today’s the day we drop down
Give up my body in bed
All for an empty hotel
Wasting words on lowercases and capitals

REVIEW: Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins

Now That You Mention It

Published December 26th, 2017 by Harlequin Books

“Now That You Mention it” is my second Kristan Higgins novel and I thought it was a fantastic read.

After being hit by a truck, Nora Dr. Nora Stuart, a gastroenterologist at Boston City Hospital is certain she’s heading towards the light… “I’m dying…this time I’m really going to die”.

The evening had started off well for Nora. She’d even saved a life. But then the ER explodes with action as her doctor boyfriend spectacularly saves a man suffering from a gunshot wound. Nora can’t help but be awestruck as she watches his heroics in the ER. Afterward, she hopes they will go home together to talk about their day but instead finds herself offering to get pizza for him and the rest of the staff.

A few minutes later Nora steps off a curb and is hit by a “Bean town bug killers” van.

Nora is certain she’s dead. But what is that beeping noise?

She’s not dead, but right before she opens her eyes she hears a conversation that she was definitely NOT meant to hear.

Now everything hurts….especially her heart.

So she decides to pack up and head to the place she left fifteen years ago….Scupper Island. She rents a houseboat and decides she’s going to see how it feels to live on her own for the first time since before the BBE (The Big Bad Event). She decides she’s NOT going to live in fear any longer.

When she arrives home she realizes that while some things have changed, there are also many things that haven’t changed at all.  Some people are happy to see her, but there are quite a few people who aren’t so thrilled that she’s back.

Will being back home actually help Nora? Or will it end up making things worse?

I thought this was an excellent novel. I became completely invested in the characters and couldn’t wait to see how things were going to turn out.  I may have had to suspend my disbelief a couple of times, although it really didn’t bother me. It was an emotional read at times, but I thought it had a very good mix of humor and drama.

A terrific plot and an excellent cast of characters (both human and animal) made “Now That You Mention It” an awesome read. I’m really looking forward to reading more from Kristan Higgins.

Highly recommended!

Against Me! – Thrash Unreal

Well, I’m taking a break from the 80’s this week. This song was released in 2007 and it is definitely a favorite of mine. This is another song I loved singing when playing Rockband 🙂

I hope you enjoy! Have a great week everyone!!

 

Against Me! – Thrash Unreal (Lyrics)

If she wants to dance and drink all night
Well, there’s no one that can stop her
She’s going till the house lights come up or her stomach spills onto the floor
This night is gonna end when we’re damn well ready for it to be over
Worked all week long, now the music is playing on our time
Yeah, we do what we do to get by, and then we need a release
You get mixed up with the wrong guys
You get messed up on the wrong drugs
Sometimes the party takes you places that you didn’t really plan on going
When people see the track marks on her arm, she knows what they’re thinking
She keeps on working for that minimum
As if a high school education gave you any other options, you know
They don’t know nothing about redemption
They don’t know nothing about recovery
Some people just aren’t the type for marriage and family
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to be a junkie
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to sleep alone
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to be a junkie
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to sleep alone
She’s out of step with the style
She don’t know where the action’s happening
You know the downtown club scene ain’t nothing like it used to be
You reach a point where there’s not a lie in the world
That you could use to make the boys believe you’re still in your twenties
But they keep getting younger, don’t they, baby?
She’s not waiting for someone to come over and ask for the privilege
She can still hear that rebel yell just as loud as it was in 1983, you know
There ain’t no Johnny coming home to share a bed with her, and she doesn’t care
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to be a junkie
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to sleep alone
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to be a junkie
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to sleep alone
No mother ever dreams that her daughter’s gonna grow up to be a junkie
And if she had to live it all over again, you know she wouldn’t change anything for the world
