Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes

“Make a Mess” by Matt and Kim

Let’s make a mess cause we’ve been clean for way too long
Let’s get undressed and dance naked to this song
So sick of playing by the rules, so bored of caring what is cool (Hey!)

Let’s make a mess cause we’ve been clean for way too long
Let’s get undressed and dance naked to this song
So sick of playing by the rules, so bored of caring what is cool (Hey!)
Let’s make a mess cause we’ve been clean for way too long
(Go, go, go!)Let’s make a mess cause we’ve been clean for way too long
Scream the loudest and get all the lyrics wrong
Live every day like it’s your first, while everyone else looks rehearsed (Hey!)
Let’s make a mess cause we’ve been clean for way too long
(Go, go, go!)

Let it, let it fall down, let it fall down, let it all fall down, go!
Let it, let it fall down, let it fall down, let it all fall down, go!

“Believe In Me”

I really, really, really, really like this song!

So, I hope you do, too!

Believe In Me
by Jamie Lidell

Lyin’ with you I don’t want to cry
Baby, won’t you dry your eyes?
I don’t want to keep thinking of all we could’ve been
And all the ways I could’ve tried
I’m always afraid of you and what I put you through

Baby, please, let me try

[chorus]
Believe in me, oooh
How am I supposed to believe in myself?
How am I supposed to believe when I see
You don’t believe in me?

Think of the way you used to sigh
And all of the dreams that could’ve been real…
If I was being there… (???)
With what was left for me (???)

Baby, please, don’t make me cry

[chorus] x2

Love is Stupid – Revisited

Original post

It makes fun things funner

and sexy times sexier

But it also makes bad things badder

sad things sadder

and hard times harder

This Morning’s Earworm Battle in the Shower

Earworm

Often when I am showering in the morning, songs just pop into my head randomly.

This morning it was:

But, as I finished singing the second verse,
(♫ Hey Man, bet you can’t treat me right ♫ You just don’t know what you was missin’ last night ♫)
a new song decided to slip in and try to take it’s place:

A true earworm battle if I ever heard one!

“I Am”

I love this entire album by Christina Aguilera, but this song always warms my heart.

(I needed very much to feel special today and Mr. X really helped this morning – thank you, Sir ❤ )

I hope you enjoy it, too

I am timid and I am oversensitive
I am a lioness, I am tired and defensive
You take me in your arms and I fold into you
I have insecurities, you show me I am beautiful

Love me or leave me
Just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy
Just need you to see me

Take me, free me
See through to the core of me
Take me, free me
There will be no more pretending

I am temperamental and I have imperfections
And I am emotional, I am unpredictable
I am naked, I am vulnerable
I am a woman, I am opening up to you

Love me or leave me
Just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy
Just need you to see me

Now I stand before you with my heart in my hands
I’m asking you to take me just the way that I am
Please lay down your arms, do you know me?
Make me feel safe from harm

I am temperamental and I have imperfections
And I am emotional
There will be no more pretending

Undress Me Now

Super sexy…

Using your mind
Imagine our skin
Joined at the hip
Joined from within
By using your eyes
You’re freezing my frame
Watching our clothes burst into flames

(Undress me now, you know how)
Using your eyes now
(Undress me now, you know how)

Using your mind
Using your mind

So give me a light
Oh give me a drink
Just give me a reason
To feel what I think

(Undress me now, you know how)
Using your eyes now
(Undress me now, you know how)
Using your mind

(Undress me now, you know how)
Using your eyes now
(Undress me now, you know how)
Using your mind
Using my mind

(Undress me now, you know how)
Using your eyes now
(Undress me now, you know how)
You know how, you know how
You know how, you know how

Pumpkin Soup

Pumpkin Soup
by Kate Nash

You’re chatting to me, like we connect
But I don’t even know if we’re still friends
It’s so confusing,
Understanding you is making me not want to do

And things that I know I should do
But I trip fast and then I lose
And I hate looking like a fool

I just want your kiss boy, kiss boy, kiss boy
I just want your kiss
I just want your kiss boy, kiss boy, kiss boy
I just want your kiss

The lights are on
And someone’s home
I’m not sure if they’re alone
There’s someone else inside my head
Living there too fills me with dread

This paranoia is distressing
But I spend most of my night guessing
Are we not, are we together
Will this make our lives much better

I’m not in love
I just wanna be touched

I just want your kiss boy, kiss boy, kiss boy
I just want your kiss
I just want your kiss boy, kiss boy, kiss boy
I just want your kiss
Whoops I think I’ve got too close
‘Cause now he’s telling me I’m girl that he likes most
Now I messed up it’s not the first time
I’m not saying you’re not on my mind
I hope that you don’t think I’m unkind

I just want your kiss boy, kiss boy, kiss boy
I just want your kiss
I just want your kiss boy, kiss boy, kiss boy
I just want your kiss

The longer we’re together

The harder it is to be apart

home

Home
by Gabrielle Aplin

I’m a phoenix in the water
A fish that’s learned to fly
And I’ve always been a daughter
But feathers are meant for the sky
And so I’m wishing, wishing further,
For the excitement to arrive
It’s just I’d rather be causing the chaos
Than laying at the sharp end of this knife

With every small disaster
I’ll let the waters still
Take me away to some place real

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home

So when I’m ready to be bolder,
And my cuts have healed with time
Comfort will rest on my shoulder
And I’ll bury my future behind
I’ll always keep you with me
You’ll be always on my mind
But there’s a shining in the shadows
I’ll never know unless I try

With every small disaster
I’ll let the waters still
Take me away to some place real

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home home home home home

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home home home home home

The Way Young Lovers Do

The Way Young Lovers Do
by Van Morrison

We strolled through fields all wet with rain
And back along the lane again
There in the sunshine
In the sweet summertime
The way that young lovers do

I kissed you on the lips once more
And we said goodbye just adoring the nighttime
Yeah, that’s the right time
To feel the way that young lovers do
Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that we were
and the way that we were meant to be
Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that I was for you
and you were for me

And then we danced the night away
And turned to each other, say, ‘I love you, I love you’
The way that young lovers do

Do, do, do, do…

Then we sat on our star and dreamed of the way that we were and the way
that we wanted to be
Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that I was for you
and you were for me
I went on to dance the night away
And turned to each other, say, ‘I love you, baby, I love you’
The way that young lovers do, lovers do, lovers do

Do, do, do, do….

Happy Friday!

I hope that your Friday is going better than mine is — and Thing #1‘s.Bear

My Truck, Bear, decided to act like a COMPLETE nut this morning and idle at 3,000 RPMs! I couldn’t settle him down at all and there was no way I was trying to drive in 45+ minutes in traffic with that going on. Oh, hell no!!! Tomorrow morning I will have to get up early before grocery shopping and try to clean out the spark plugs, wires and cylinders…

I am so lucky that Boss-Lady is so cool! Not everyone can call their boss up at 7:30 in the morning, trying not to cry, and ask for a ride to work. She doesn’t live too far away from me and we still ended up getting to work mostly on time — only 5 minutes late.

While I was riding in with Boss-Lady, Thing #1 called me and when I said, “Hello,” I could only hear her angry huffs on the other side in response. After a couple of seconds listening to her, I concluded she was mad at herself and said, “Speak to me, my child. What is wrong?”

“I left my shears on the couch in my bedroom and I had a haircut appointment this morning. They sent me home!”

Shitty! She rode the bus all the way to Beauty School this morning just to have to turn around and wait again to ride home. It’s a 30-minute ride and it was 5 degrees BELOW zero this morning — for both her trip to school and for her trip home! She texted me when she got home, “My toes hurt SO bad!” Now she’s stuck with Mr. Doom-n-Gloom for the rest of the day. Happy times for her…

Good luck to all of you with your days. Maybe this sweet, little video will help you to smile 🙂 It did me.
