Deadline HELL

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category: , , ,
I am writing. I am writing. I cannot go out except to the grocery store. I cannot take a break. I cannot watch tv. I cannot binge drink and socialize this week. I cannot talk on the telephone. I must make deadline. I must meet Monday's deadline...

So, I tell myself....

Now where's the damn wine opener?

I'm starting to dig THE BOSS... there's a song on his new album I like and it makes me feel like I have a long walk home....LOL

LONG WALK HOME©Artist: Bruce Springsteen

Last night I stood at your doorstep
Trying to figure out what went wrong
You just slipped somethin' into my palm, then you were gone
I could smell the same deep green of summer
Above me the same night sky was glowin'
In the distance I could see the town where I was born

It's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
A long walk home

In town I passed Sal's grocery
The barbershop on South Street
I looked in their faces*
They were all rank strangers to me*
The veteran's hall high upon the hill
Stood silent and alone
The diner was shuttered and boarded
With a sign that just said "gone"

It's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
It's gonna be a long walk home

[Sax break]

Here everybody has a neighbor
Everybody has a friend
Everybody has a reason to begin again

My father said "Son, we're lucky in this town,
It's a beautiful place to be born.
It just wraps its arms around you,
Nobody crowds you and nobody goes it alone
You know that flag flying over the courthouse
Means certain things are set in stone
Who we are, what we'll do and what we won't"

It's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
It's gonna be a long walk home
It's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
It's gonna be a long walk home
It's gonna be a long walk home

Ok, I hate to admist this being a fellow Jersian, but I can not stand The Boss. There is not much music I don't like. His is one.

and yes, you need to write. HELLO? Did we just not have this convo this morning?

Hello. You are mean! :) I am not a big BOSS fan either, but this album has a message and seeing as I like things with messages I kinda like the song...but does not profess to being a real BOSS fan. And I know you are still nagging at me about writing!
