Heaven Knows

Does anyone remember this song back in the day?
I think I just started college...



Only Heaven Knows
(Sung by Rick Price)

She's always on my mind,
from the time I wake up
'till I close my eyes
she's everywhere I go
she's all I know

though she's so far away
it just keeps getting stronger
every day
and even now she's gone
I'm still holding on

so tell me where do I start
'cause it's breaking my heart
don't wanna let her go

chorus:
maybe my love will come back some day
only heaven knows
and maybe our hearts will find their way
only heaven knows
and all I can do is hope and pray
'cause heaven knows

my friends keep telling me
that if you really love her
you've gotta set her free
and if she returns in kind
I'll know she's mine

so tell me where do I start
'cause it's breaking my heart
don't wanna let her go

chorus

why I live in despair
'cause wide awake or dreaming
I know she's never there
and all this time I act so brave
I'm shaking inside
why does it hurt me so...

chorus

'cause heaven knows...

"Love hurts
Sometimes it's a good hurt
And it feels like I'm alive
Love sings
When it transcends to memories
I want to chime in
'Cause without love I won't survive"

Man... i love incubus!!

Love hurts:(

"that if you really love her
you've gotta set her free
and if she returns in kind
I'll know she's mine"

I think that's true. If she comes back to you, she's yours 4ever:)

love makes me sad, yes but love also makes me happy and i think happy moments are more important. =)
Abdullah said…
Princess,
Truer words yo cannot find...

Ijat,
If it weren't for the happy moments I think we'd all go insane... but then again... it's always these happy moments that hurt the most when you want to make a clean break, dont u think? They chain you to the other person... and if you're not strong enough, soon all the bad moments would be nothing but distant memories, and you only remember the good times... and sooner that u know know it, ur back with the person again... It's a vicious cycle, just waiting to be repeated...

Been there done that :)
missyizzati said…

Forgiveness

How does one forgive someone who has done them and their loved ones so much wrong?

This is a question that I struggle with, and have always struggled with for a long time. 
How does one push past the pain and suffering that a person had willingly caused, worse yet, caused to someone that they loved. We stand at the sidelines, and feel ourselves slighted, yet the pain we feel is minuscule, compared to the earth-shattering hurt our loved one experiences. Yet we are powerless, drowning in a helplessness, grasping for any lifeline that can pull ourselves out from the deep. 
How can we let go when hatred is all we know. A hatred that festered from seeds of dislike. This poison that we feed ourselves. Yet it is all we know. 
How does one tell oneself to let go?
If a person murders your son, and returns a month later, saying he is genuinely sorry; what would you do? He comes in and says he will pay for the cleaning bill, to wipe the blood stains off the floor, and to send the carpet for dry…

The End

I am in a hotel room.

It is unclear who else is in the room. It must be my family. But I am uncertain. I know I am in the room with people I love.

The hotel room is in a building that towers above ground level, and we can see all the houses below.

I am in Hawaii I think. How I know that I do not know. All I know is that we are beside the ocean.

I feel unsettled as I look out the window. Something is compelling me to look outside the window. It is getting dark. But I know by right it should not be dark. It is midday. And then I see it.

In front of me a huge storm cloud is gathering. But I start to quiver because it looks like no ordinary storm. The clouds are pitch black. Black as death. My eyes follow their shape to where they originate. I gasp.

I see a gigantic water spout, a tornado in the ocean, funnelling its energy to the black cloud. The water spout is also pitch black. Rain now pours uncontrollably. It is a hurricane at its full blast, but not just that. It is much, much more.

My first fast food experience ever

Growing up in the UK in the late 70s and 80s, it was almost impossible to get fast food that was halal. Definitely not like what it is today.

Back in the day, we lived in many different places when I was growing up, but I consider Bath to be my where I struck my roots.

As a kid you don’t really remember many things that were not within your immediate scope of experience. Everything was taken care of by your parents, and that is something I have go to remember again with my own children. Sometimes I expect them to be aware more of what is going on around them, but when I remember my own childhood, all we knew was we did what our parents told us, moved where they moved, went where they went etc.

Anyway, I’m rambling.

Back to what I was saying, It was literally impossible to get fast food, and all we could do was just imagine how the burgers would taste. Fries or chips was not too much of an issue because we were able to eat Fish and Chips, especially from Evans in the middle of town af…
