don't wait for love: 10 ways to love yourself now
the snow storm challenge: a lesson on loving change

[love edition] words to live by: slow show

love positive ()

Standing at the punch table swallowing punch

can’t pay attention to the sound of anyone

a little more stupid, a little more scared

every minute more unprepared


I made a mistake in my life today

everything I love gets lost in drawers

I want to start over, I want to be winning

way out of sync from the beginning


I wanna hurry home to you

put on a slow, dumb show for you

and crack you up

so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain

god I’m very, very frightened

I’ll overdo it


Looking for somewhere to stand and stay

I leaned on the wall and the wall leaned away

Can I get a minute of not being nervous

and not thinking of my ...
 

My leg is sparkles, my leg is pins

I better get my shit together, better gather my shit in

You could drive a car through my head in five minutes

from one side of it to the other


I wanna hurry home to you

put on a slow, dumb show for you

and crack you up

so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain

god I’m very, very frightened

I’ll overdo it


You know I dreamed about you

for twenty-nine years before I saw you

You know I dreamed about you

I missed you for

for twenty-nine years


You know I dreamed about you

for twenty-nine years before I saw you

You know I dreamed about you

I missed you for

for twenty-nine years 


The National
 "Slow Show" 



For reasons that have only recently been explained to me, this has been for quite some time one of my favorite love songs. If you want to hear it, click to listen to "Slow Show" on YouTube. "Words To Live By" is a segment on Positively Present that features my favorite quote or lyrics from the week. Every Sunday I post a quote or lyrics that have inspired me with the hope that they'll inspire you too. This month I've created a special "Love Edition" of "Words To Live By," featuring lyrics from my favorite love songs. Comments will be closed on these posts, but feel free to tweet the post if you enjoy it or contact me via Twitter.
