Lifelines...


Reminded yesterday of one of my favorite John Mayer songs- Lifelines

I get this song- it speaks to me- if you haven't heard it I highly recommend you search for one of his live versions of it- I have one from 2004 I think- anyway- wish he would play it sometimes- would be great to hear it at a concert. That, or Covered In Rain- which is my #1 favorite.


You saw me sleeping on the couch tonight,
i know it serves you right
makes you luckier than i
all the colors in the room have changed
compared to yesterday
but brother I've discovered you

we're pushing on
we're passing through
and it wont be long
till I walk with you
tonight I'm down
I'm inside out
staring at the pictures in the album you forgot about

and isn't it a shame
times have changed
but isn't it strange
lifelines stay the same, the same

we're never where we want to be
that's okay with me
that's just the way it is, they say
it feels like make believe
that you're my history
but brother I've rediscovered you and

we're pushing on
we're passing through
and it won't be long
till I walk with you
tonight I'm down
yeah, I'm inside out
staring at the pictures in the album you forgot about

isn't it a shame
that times have changed
but isn't it strange
lifelines stay the same

round and round
I can't believe my heart has waited this long
all along, we've been children in a cold world
where wonder was lost, every day
and if love was a compass
oh, I've lost my way

Hey, Kerrie! I saw your comment on TryJM and wanted to say hello! If you see any naughty comments on TryJM posted by Catheve, it's me. Now that the images of JM in a Borat Suit are fading from my memory, I"m getting more respectful again, sort of. I hope you have a great week! Take care! -Cathy
