Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

TG"What Would Happen" by Meredith Brooks, lyrics by Meredith Brooks

I’ve been listening to this a lot lately ;)

It’s one of the hottest songs I’ve ever heard in my life.

For B.

“What Would Happen”

.
.

Electricity, eye to eye

Hey don’t I know you

I can’t speak

.

Stripped my senses

On the spot

I’ve never been defenseless

I can’t even make sense of this

You speak and I don’t hear a word

.

What would happen if we kissed

Would your tongue slip past my lips

Would you run away, would you stay

Or would I melt into you

Mouth to mouth, lust to lust

Spontaneously combust

.

The room is spinning out of control

Act like you didn’t notice

Brushed my hand

.

Forbidden fruit

Ring on my finger

You’re such a moral, moral man

You throw it away, no question

Will I pretend I’m innocent?

.

What would happen if we kissed

Would your tongue slip past my lips

Would you run away, would you stay

Or would I melt into you

Mouth to mouth, lust to lust

Spontaneously combust

What would happen if we kissed?

.

I struggle with myself again

Quickly the walls are crumbling

Don’t know if I can turn away

.

What would happen if we kissed

Would your tongue slip past my lips

Would you run away, would you stay

Or would I melt into you

Mouth to mouth, lust to lust

Spontaneously combust

What would happen if we kissed?7 years ago


browneyes85Keep Your Head Up-Andy Grammer

I’ve been waiting on the sunset
Bills on my mindset
I can get deny they’re getting high
Higher than my income
Income’s breadcrumbs
I’ve been trying to survive

The glow that the sun gives
Right around sunset
Helps me realize
This is just a journey
Drop your worries
You are gonna turn out fine
Oh, you’ll turn out fine
Fine, oh, you’ll turn out fine

But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh

I know it’s hard, know its hard,
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh

I’ve got my hands in my pockets,
Kickin’ these rocks
Its kinda hard to watch this life go by
I’m buyin’ in the skeptics,
Skeptics mess with, the confidence in my eyes

I’m seeing all the angles, starts to get tangled
I start to compromise
My life and the purpose
Is it all worth it,
Am I gonna turn out fine?
Oh, you’ll turn out fine
Fine, oh, you’ll turn out fine

But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh

I know it’s hard, know its hard,
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh

Only rainbows after rain
The sun will always come again
Its a circle, circling,
Around again, it comes around again

Only rainbows after rain
The sun will always come again
Its a circle, circling,
Around again, it comes around,

But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh
You gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh

I know it’s hard, know its hard
To remember sometimes,
But you gotta keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh

Keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh
Keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down, eh
Keep your head up, oh,
And you can let your hair down
Oh, no no no no no no no 8 months ago


TG"Sometimes When We Touch" by Dan Hill, lyrics by Dan Hill

For B.

The lyrics don’t work perfectly, but if you interpret “touch” to mean emotionally, a lot of this fits how I feel.

Sometimes When We Touch

You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
I’d rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie

And who am I to judge you
In what you say or do
I’m only just beginning
To see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty’s too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
But through the insecurity
Some tenderness survives
I’m just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize-fighter
Still trapped within my youth

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty’s too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

At times I’d like to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I’d like to break through
And hold you endlessly
At times I understand you
And I know how hard you try
I’ve watched while love commands you
And I’ve watched love pass you by
At times I think we’re drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty’s too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides 7 years ago


indeedyHello In There by John Prine

written by John Prine
From the 1971 album ‘John Prine’

I love John Prine’s versions of this warm-hearted song, but I first heard it in a live performance by the dream team of Natalie Merchant, Michael Stipe, Billy Bragg and Cara Tivey…

We had an apartment in the city,
And me and Loretta liked living there.
It’s been years since the kids have grown,
A life of their own,
And left us alone.
John and Linda live in Omaha,
And Joe is somewhere on the road.
We lost Davy in the Korean War.
I still don’t know what for,
Don’t matter any more.

Chorus:
You know that old trees just grow stronger,
And old rivers grow wilder every day.
Old people just grow lonesome.
Waiting for someone to say
Hello in there,
Hello.

Me and Loretta, we don’t talk much more.
She sits and stares through the back door screen.
And all the news just repeats itself,
Like some forgotten dream,
That we’ve both seen.
Someday I’ll go and call up Rudy,
We worked together at the factory.
But what could I say when he asks “What’s new?”
Nothing, what’s with you?
Nothing much to do.

Chorus

So if you’re walking down the street sometime,
And spot some hollow ancient eyes,
Please don’t just pass ‘em by and stare,
As if you didn’t care.
Say hello in there,
Hello. 6 years ago


julettaskeyTell Me a Story ~ sung by Phil Phillips

Tell you a story and it starts with time
Most on how you lived, and learned how to die
Never fakes in this world that brings death to life
So don’t believe in everything you see
Because what you want might not be what you need
Hold your breath jump with me and we’ll survive
Cause you are the song that leads me to the light

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what’s behind
You always scared of what’s in front
Live with what you have
Now I make the best of what’s to come

Tell me a story long and true
We are what we say we are what we do
Just pieces of a puzzle to find where we stand just confused
So you are the moon that pulls me through the night

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what’s behind
You always scared of what’s in front
Live with what you have
Now I make the best of what’s to come

Live with what you have
Now I make the best of what’s to come

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what’s behind
You always scared of what’s in front
Live with what you have
Now I make the best of what’s to come

So you are the song that leads me, you are the moon that pulls me, you are the light that leads me, you are the moon that pulls me 19 months ago


TG"Your Song," by Elton John, lyrics by Bernie Taupin

I’ve loved this song since I first heard it over 40 years ago and it’s been a favorite of mine ever since. I haven’t heard it in a while but I watched Moulin Rouge over the weekend and this song is an important one in the movie. 40 years later the song can still give me the chills and bring tears to my eyes.

Interestingly, I’ve never associated this song with one specific person in my life. Maybe someday I will.

Your Song

It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money but boy if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world 20 months ago


browneyes85Skyscraper-Demi Lovato

Skies are crying
I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence
Has an ending
Like we never had a chance

Do you have to
Make me feel like
There is nothing left of me

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

As the smoke clears
I awaken
And untangle you from me
Would it make you
Feel better
To watch me while I bleed

All my windows
Still are broken
But I’m standing on my feet

Go run run run
I’m gonna stay right here
Watch you disappear ya yaa
Go run run run
Ya it’s a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

(Like a skyscraper)
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper 21 months ago


browneyes85Bring Me To Life-Evanescence

How can you see into my eyes
like open doors.
Leading you down into my core
where I’ve become so numb.
Without a soul
my spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home.

Wake me up.
Wake me up inside.
I can’t wake up.
Wake me up inside.
Save me.
Call my name and save me from the dark.
Wake me up.
Bid my blood to run.
I can’t wake up.
Before I come undone.
Save me.
Save me from the nothing I’ve become.

Now that I know what I’m without
you can’t just leave me.
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life.

Bring me to life.
I’ve been living a lie
There’s nothing inside.
Bring me to life.

Frozen inside without your touch,
without your love, darling.
Only you are the life among the dead.

All this time
I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark
but you were there in front of me

I’ve been sleeping a 1000 years it seems.
I’ve got to open my eyes to everything.

Without a thought
Without a voice
Without a soul

Don’t let me die here
There must be something wrong.
Bring me to life.

Bring me to life.
I’ve been living a lie
There’s nothing inside. 23 months ago


TG"I Wanna Be Bad," by Willa Ford, lyrics by W. Ford, B. Kierulf, J. Schwartz, & R. Montgomery

Without naming any names, this is for all of the 43ers who it’s applied to for me- past, present, and future. There have been more than a few of you (although there is one who is the reason I brought this up right now) ;)

browneyes85Lion's Mane-Iron&Wine

Run like a race for family
When you hear like you’re alone
The rusty gears of morning
And faceless, busy phones
We gladly run in circles
But the shape we meant to make is gone

And love is a tired symphony
You hum when you’re awake
And love is a crying baby
Mama warned you not to shake
And love’s the best sensation
Hiding in the lion’s mane

So I’ll clear the road, the gravel
And the thornbush in your path
That burns a scented oil
That I’ll drip into your bath
The water’s there to warm you
And the earth is warmer when you laugh

And love is the scene I render
When you catch me wide awake
And love is the dream you enter
Though I shake and shake and shake you
And love is the best endeavor
Waiting in the lion’s mane 23 months ago


browneyes85The Promise-When in Rome

If you need a friend
Don’t look to a stranger
You know in the end, I’ll always be there
But when you’re in doubt
And when you’re in danger
Take a look all around, and I’ll be there

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you’ll wait around awhile, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise
I promise you I will

When your day is through
And so is your temper
You know what to do
I’m gonna always be there
Sometimes if I shout
It’s not what’s intended
These words just come out
With no gripe to bear

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you’ll wait around awhile, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise
I promise you

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you
I promise you I will

I gotta tell you
I gotta tell you
I need to tell you

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
But if you’ll wait around awhile, I’ll make you fall for me
I promise you
I promise you

I’m sorry, but I’m just thinking of the right words to say
I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be
And if I had to walk the world, I’d make you fall for me
I promise you
I promise you I will
I will
I will 23 months ago


browneyes85Teardrop-Massive Attack

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me, makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Night, night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my

Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Of a confession
Fearless on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

browneyes85Future Starts Slow-The Kills

You can holler, you can wail
You can swing, you can flail
You can fuck like a broken sail
But I’ll never give you up
If I ever give you up my heart will surely fail

And after all God can keep my soul
England have my bones
But don’t ever give me up
I could never get back up when the future starts so slow

No longing for the moonlight
No longing for the sun
No longer will I curse the bad I’ve done
If there’s a time when your feelings gone, I wanna feel it

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what’s left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what’s left of my right mind
(I don’t mind)

There’s a time for the second best
And there’s a time when the feeling’s gone
But it’s hard to be hard I guess
When you’re shaking like a dog

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what’s left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what’s left of my right mind

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what’s left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what’s left of my right mind
(I don’t mind)

You can blow what’s left of my right mind
You can blow what’s left of my right mind
You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what’s left of my right mind 1 year ago


browneyes85Hold On-Wilson Phillips

I know there’s pain
Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don’t ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things will go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things will go your way
Hold on for one more day

You could sustain
Or are you comfortable with the pain?
You’ve got no one to blame for your unhappiness
You got yourself into your own mess
Lettin’ your worries pass you by
Don’t you think it’s worth your time
To change your mind?

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things will go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things will go your way
Hold on for one more day

I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and
Break free the chains
Yeah I know that there is pain
But you hold on for one more day and you
Break free, break from the chains

Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things will go your way
If you hold on for one more day yeah
If you hold on

Don’t you know things can change
Things will go your way
If you hold on for one more day,
If you hold on
Can you hold on
Hold on baby
Won’t you tell me now
Hold on for one more day ‘Cause
It’s gonna go your way

Don’t you know things can change
Things will go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can’t you change it this time

Make up your mind
Hold on
Hold on
Baby hold on 1 year ago


TGFrom "Cowboys and Angels," by George Michael, lyrics by George Michael

...Cowboys and angels

They all have the time for you

Why should I imagine that I’d be a find for you

Why should I imagine

That I’d have something to say…

.

...When your heart’s in someone else’s plans

Things you say and things you do

They don’t understand

It’s such a shame

It always ends the same…2 years ago


browneyes85We Are Young-Fun.

Give me a second I,
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State
My lover she’s waiting for me just across the bar
My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses asking about a scar, and
I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
The holes in my apologies, you know
I’m trying hard to take it back
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down, I’ll carry you home

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Now I know that I’m not
All that you got, I guess that I, I just thought
Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
But our friends are back
So let’s raise a cup
‘Cause I found someone to carry me home

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)
Just carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)
Carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)
Just carry me home tonight (Na na na na na na)

The world is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
The angels never arrived
But I can hear the choir
So will someone come and carry me home

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight 2 years ago

I’m losing my mind losing my mind losing control
These fishes in the sea they’re staring at me oh oh oh oh oh oh
A wet world aches for a beat of a drum, oh

If I could find a way to see this straight, I’d run away

These zombies in the park they’re looking for my heart oh oh oh oh
A dark world aches for a splash of the sun oh oh

Restore life the way it should be
I’m waiting for this cough syrup to come down

Life’s too short to even care at all oh

browneyes85Shake It Out-Florence and the Machine

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I’m always dragging that horse around

Our love is pastured such a mournful sound
Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues strong
But it’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

‘Cause I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart
‘Cause I like to keep my issues strong
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

I tried to dance with the devil on your back
And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It’s a final mess but it’s left me so empty
It’s always darkest before the dawn
(Oh whoa, oh whoa)

And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t
So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope
It’s a shot in the dark and right at my throat
‘Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me

Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out,
Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa 2 years ago

Well you can tell everyone I’m a down disgrace
Drag my name all over the place –
I don’t care anymore.
You can tell everybody ‘bout the state I’m in
You won’t catch me crying ‘cos I just can’t win -
I don’t care anymore. I don’t care anymore.

I don’t care what you say
I don’t play the same games you play.

‘cos I’ve been talking to the people that you call all your friends
And it seems to me there’s a means to an end –
they don’t care anymore.
And as for me I can sit here and bide my time
I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind -
I don’t care anymore. I don’t care no more.

I don’t care what you say –
we never played by the same rules anyway.

I won’t be there anymore
get out of my way –
let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don’t care anymore I don’t care anymore I don’t care anymore
I don’t care anymore.

Well, I don’t care now what you say
‘cos everyday I’m feeling fine with myself.
And I don’t care now what you say
hey -I’ll do alright by myself
‘cos I know.

‘cos I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face ‘cos you held all the cards -
I don’t care anymore.
And I really ain’t bothered what you think of me
‘cos all I want of you is just a let me be -
I don’t care anymore. D’you hear I don’t care no more

I don’t care what you say –
I never did believe you much anyway

I won’t be there no more
so get out of my way –
let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don’t care anymore.
D’you hear I don’t care anymore
I don’t care no more.
You listening? I don’t care no more
No more. You know I don’t care anymore!

Don’t care no more. No more. 2 years ago


julettaskeyPart of Me ~ Katy Perry

Days like this I want to drive away
Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade
You chewed me up and spit me out
Like I was poison in your mouth
You took my light, you drained me down
That was then and this is now
Now look at me

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

I just wanna throw my phone away
Find out who is really there for me
‘Cause you ripped me off, your love was cheap
Was always tearing at the seams
I fell deep and you let me drown
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me
Now look at me, I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You won’t ever put me out again
I’m glowing, oh woah oh
So you can keep the diamond ring
It don’t mean nothing anyway
In fact you can keep everything
Yeah, yeah
Except for me 2 years ago


julettaskeyWhat doesn't kill you ~ Kelly Clarkson

You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want

You think you got the best of me
Think you’ve had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I’d come running back
Baby you don’t know me, cause you’re dead wrong

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

You heard that I was starting over with someone new
They told you I was moving on over you

You didn’t think that I’d come back
I’d come back swinging
You try to break me
But you see…

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I’m not the broken-hearted
Thanks to you I’m finally thinking ‘bout me
You know in the end the day you left was just my beginning
In the end…

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone 2 years ago


julettaskeyBlackbird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Black bird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise 2 years ago

And the walls that won’t come down
We can decorate
Or climb
Or find some way to get around
‘cause I’m still on your side
From the bottom of my heart.

Some people never find it
Some people only pretend
I just want to live happily ever after
Every now & then.

browneyes85Firework by Katy Perry

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under?
Scream, but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s still a chance for you?
‘Cause there’s a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on; show ‘em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby, you’re a firework
Come on; let your colors burst
Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ‘em fallin’ down-own-own

You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original
You cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you’re reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one
That leads you to a perfect road
Like a lightning bolt
Your heart will glow
And when it’s time, you’ll know

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on; show ‘em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Baby, you’re a firework
Come on; let your colors burst
Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ‘em fallin’ down-own-own

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to through, ooh, ooh

‘Cause, baby, you’re a firework
Come on; show ‘em what you’re worth
Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
You’re a firework
Come on; let your colors burst
Make ‘em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
You’re gonna leave ‘em fallin’ down-own-own

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 3 years ago
