To me Valentine's Day is commercialized and has become almost meaningless. Everyday should be a day of love. I woke up with this song in my head, and I thought I'd share it with you.

Shimmer
Shawn Mullins

sharing with us what he knows
shining eyes are big and blue
and all around him water flows
this world to him is new
this world to him is new
to touch a face
to kiss a smile
new eyes see no race
the essence of a child
the essence
he's born to shimmer, he's born to shine
he's born to radiate
he's born to live, he's born to love
but we'll teach him not to hate
true love it is a rock
smoothed over by a stream
no ticking of a clock
truly measures what that means
truly measures what that means
and this thing they call our time
heard a brilliant woman say
she said you know it's crazy
how I want to try to capture mine
I think I love this woman's way
I think I love this woman's
way she shimmers, the way she shines
the way she radiates
the way she lives, the way she loves
the way she never hates
sometimes I think of all of this that can surround me
I know it all as being mine
but she kisses me and wraps herself around me
she gives me love, she gives me time
and I feel fine
I feel fine
but time I cannot change
so here's to looking back
you know I drink a whole bottle of my pride
and I toast to change
to keep these demons off my back
just get these demons off my back
cause I want to shimmer, I want to shine
I want to radiate
I want to live, I want to love
I want to try to learn not to hate
try not to hate
we're born to shimmer, we're born to shine
we're born to radiate
we're born to live, we're born to love
we're born to never hate

We All Need Saving
by Jon McLaughlin

Come on, come on
You have got to move on
This is not the you i know
This isn't real
It's just all you can feel
And that's the way that feelings go
And whether or not it's right or wrong you'll do what you will do

[Chorus]
When the cloud in the sky starts to pour
And your life is just a storm you're braving
Don't tell yourself you can't lean on someone else
Cause we all need saving sometimes

Say what you will but the time that we fill
While we're on the earth
Should not be alone
We were meant to be known
You make me what i'm worth
But i can't keep you from yourself you'll do what you will do

[Chorus]

I don't know why it has to be this way and
I don't know the cure
But please believe someone has felt this before

[Chorus]

Morning Has Broken
Cat Stevens

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the word

Jesus Was a Democrat
by Everclear

(Visit their website http://www.everclearonline.com/ to download for free)

Jesus Christ didn't have blue eyes or blond hair
He looked just like all those people that you want to kill
Spin your hell into a heaven you can sell
Make it look like California with a bible belt
Jesus didn't look like the boy next door
Unless you live in Palestine
I wonder what you mean by the golden rule
I think it is a scary play on words
I wonder what they taught you back in Sunday school

I bet you think of him
As a nice clean long haired Republican, nah
He would be all locked up in Guantanamo Bay
If he were alive today
He would have been a revolutionary
Wanted by the CIA

I picture him in all the wrong places
Finding diamonds in the dirt
A star of David tattoo
And a Che t-shirt
Jesus Christ was a left wing radical Jew
Murdered by people like you

If Jesus was a Democrat like the bible says he was
I don't think he's going to want to take the blame
For all the awful things you say and do in his name

If Jesus was alive he would be sad to see
That it is no different than it used to be
Someday he's going to call you out
I am pretty god damned sure ......
He is going to be angry
He is going to be angry

You want to know what I think?.......

I think Jesus would have been a card carrying liberal
If he was a young man born in the USA

He would not be "fiscally conservative"
And he wouldn't vote for John McCain
All those so called Christians that you see on TV
Maybe they scare Jesus like they scare me
Kick you the hell out of my temple too
Too many elephants in the room

If Jesus was a Democrat like the bible says he was
I don't think he's going to want to take the blame
For all the awful things you people do and say in his name

If Jesus was alive today he would be sad to see
That it is no different than it used to be
Someday he's going to call you out
I am pretty god damned sure......
He is going to be....mad
He is going to be angry
He is going to be....mad
He is going to be....mad

You say Jesus loves the little children
And I say I know that's true
I say he loves all the Muslims and the Jews
All the addicts and the porn stars too
You say Jesus died to save us all from a fiery hell
I say Jesus died to save us
Save us from ourselves
Will you save me from myself?

If Jesus was a liberal like the red letters say he was
I know he would have big love for all the killers and the racists
And the bullies in this world

If Jesus was alive today
And you had a chance to meet him face to face
I'm pretty God-damned sure that you and your friends
Would find some way to kill him all over again
You would kill him all over again
Again and again and again
Just like you always do
You do just what you always do

Falling Slowly
Glen Hansard

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

Moon Shadow
Cat Stevens

I'm being followed by a moon shadow
moon shadow-moon shadow
leaping and hopping on a moon shadow
moon shadow-moon shadow
and if I ever lose my hands
lose my plough, lose my land
oh, if I ever lose my hands
oh, if...
I won’t have to work no more
and if I ever lose my eyes
If my colours all run dry
yes, if I ever lose my eyes
oh if …
I won't have to cry no more.
yes, I'm being followed by a moon shadow
moon shadow - moon shadow
leaping and hopping on a moon shadow
moon shadow - moon shadow
and if I ever lose my legs
I won't moan and I won't beg
of (oh)* if I ever lose my legs
oh if...
I won't have to walk no more
And if I ever lose my mouth
all my teeth, north and south
yes, if I ever lose my mouth
oh if...
I won't have to talk...
Did it take long to find me
I ask the faithful light
Ooh did it take long to find me
And are you going to stay the night
I'm being followed by a moon shadow
moon shadow - moon shadow
leaping and hopping on a moon shadow
moon shadow - moon shadow
moon shadow - moon shadow
moon shadow - moon shadow

Smoke
Ben Folds Five

Leaf by leaf and page by page
throw this book away
All the sadness all the rage
throw this book away
Rip out the binding and tear the
glue
all of the grief we never even
knew
we had it all along
Now it's Smoke
The things we've written in it
never really happened
All the things we've written in it
never really happened
All the people come and
gone
never really lived
All the people come have gone
no one to forgive
Smoke

CHORUS
We will not write a new one
there will not be a new one
another one another one

here's an evening dark with
shame
throw it on the fire
here's the time I took the
blame
throw it on the fire
Here's the time we didn't speak
it seemed for years and years and
here's a secret
no one will ever know the
reasons for the tears
they are smoke

CHORUS

Where do all the secrets live
they travel in the air
you can smell them when
they burn
they travel
Those who say the past is
not dead
can stop and smell the smoke
you keep saying the past is
not dead
well stop and smell the smoke
you keep on saying the past is
not even past and
you keep on saying
we are, Smoke

I Saved the World Today
by Eurythmics

Monday finds you like a bomb
That's been left ticking there too long
You're bleeding
Some days there's nothing left to learn
From the point of no return
You're leaving


Hey hey I saved the world today
Everybody's happy now
The bad things gone away
And everybody's happy now
The good thing's here to stay
Please let it stay


There's a million mouths to feed
And I've got everything I need
I'm breathing
And there's a hurting thing inside
But I've got everything to hide
I'm grieving


Hey hey I saved the world today
Everybody's happy now
The bad things gone away
And everybody's happy now
The good thing's here to stay
Please let it stay


Let it stay
Let it stay
Doo doo doo doo doo the good thing


Hey hey I saved the world today
Everybody's happy now
The bad things gone away
And everybody's happy now
The good thing's here to stay
Please let it stay

Feel the Summer
by Stroke 9

Feel the summer approaching on the wind like a forest fire
And although I want it here the Spring looks like a lonely liar

All the new life that sprung from the cold Winter last year
Everything that's over with replaced by all these different fears

But I will embrace them with wide eyes

Now I must tell you goodbye
And live with everything that I
Have done 'til now and hope for the best, goodbye.

Everything I thought I was it's time to put it all aside
I told myself that I was going to try to change I guess I lied

Now I'm in a different place where I can finally think
Do I need to explain myself or do I need another drink

Now I will embrace this place in time

Now I must tell you goodbye
And live with everything that I
Have done 'til now and hope for the best, goodbye.

Although it hurts it's times like these that make life worth living
So please help me understand that nothing ever goes as planned
So I can turn it around again

I smell the Winter approaching in the air like an avalanche
I don't really want it here but this could be my only chance

A chance to take a new approach
To try a different way
Before everything else is gone there's not much more for me to say so...

Now I must tell you goodbye
And live with everything that I
Have done 'til now and hope for the best, goodbye.

Work In Progress
by Sister Hazel

I am sick
I'm annoyed
You know I'm nasty
And I'm incomplete
I am angry
I am lost
Yeah I'm hard as stone
I am sober
I am worried and I'm disgusted
I am lonely I am scared
And It's crushing me

[Bridge]
You say "what is worry?"
(What is worry?)
Yeah you say who Belong Belong Belong Belongs
Well you say "If it matters."
(If it matters)
Well tell me I'm not dead
Cause I'm goin' crazy

I'm a mess such a mess
I'm a coward and a hypocritical sinner
like a bitchin' politician
But my aim is true
I am tense and intentional
I'm passionate to a fault
I am open I'm a work in progress

Well tell me that I'm worried
(Worried)
Oh tell me I belong belong belong belong
Tell me that I matter
(Matter)
Well tell me I'm not dead
Because I'm goin' crazy

Well I'm hung up on the past
Finished up a nice idealistic
In case you missed it later
A self mutilator
Killin' time procrastinator
Well I worry about my health
Trippin' on myself Idealistic
In case you missed it

[Bridge]

Well I'm a wreck
Such a wreck
And I'm a martyr and a perpetual loser
Not a Sigfried Oprah Winfrey
But I do mean well
And I am tense and intentional
I am passionate to a fault
And I am open
I'm a work in progress

Duck and Cover
Glen Phillips

Someone’s in the backyard banging on the door
Daddy’s gone away he’s coming back no more
His baby’s curled up on a stranger’s floor
Momma’s thinking family dinners weren’t too much to ask for

Everybody here’s got a story to tell
Everybody’s been through their own hell
Nothing too special about getting hurt
But getting over it, now that takes the work

One way or the other we’ll all need each other
Nothing’s gonna turn out the way you thought it would
But friends and lovers don’t you duck and cover
‘Cause everything turns out the way it should

Blessed are the humble, blessed are the weak
Blessed are the hungry, blessed are the meek
Blessed are the ones on the other side
And blessed are we just for being alive

One day I stopped wanting anything at all
The heavens opened up like a waterfall
No use in worrying about when it ends
Just for now be thankful for what I get

One way or another a man’s gonna suffer
Nothing’s gonna turn out the way you wanted it
But friends and lovers don’t you duck and cover
‘Cause everything turns out the way it should in the end

Seems like life is a palindrome
Cry when you die, cry when you’re born
In between it’s all about the ups and downs
Add them all together they’ll cancel each other out

One way or another, one way or another
You won’t get what you wanted but you’ll get enough for sure
One way or another, the winter pays for the summer
Won’t get what you wanted but what you got’ll be good

Someone’s in the backyard banging on the door
Daddy’s gone away he’s coming back no more
His baby’s curled up on a stranger’s floor
Momma’s thinking happy endings weren’t too much to ask for

The Reasons
by Weakerthans

Now I don't know how to sing,

I can barely play this thing,
But you never seem to mind,
And you tell me to fuck off,
When I need somebody to,
How you make me laugh so hard,
How whole years refuse to stay,
Where we told them to back off,
Locked up blindly in a word,
Or a misplaced souvenir,
How the past chews on your shoes,
And these memories lick my ear.

I know,
You might roll your eyes at this,
But I'm so,
Glad that you exist.

How we waste our precious time,
Marching in the picket line,
That surround those striking hearts,
And the time is never now,
And we know who we should love,
But we're never certain how.

I know,
You might roll your eyes at this,
But I'm so,
Glad that you exist.

I know,
You might roll your eyes at this,
But I'm so,
Glad that you exist.

[solo]

I know,
You might roll your eyes at this,
But I'm so,
Glad that you exist.
