My thoughts go out to all of those who lost a loved one on 9-11-2001

 


“Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)”

Alan Jackson

 

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Out in the yard with your wife and children
Working on some stage in LA
Did you stand there in shock at the site of
That black smoke rising against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger
In fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry

 

Did you weep for the children
Who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don’t know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below

 

Did you burst out in pride
For the red white and blue
The heroes who died just doing what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself to what really matters

 

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

 

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Driving down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cause you’re a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Speak with some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you’re watching
And turn on “I Love Lucy” reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger
Stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love

 

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

 

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

 

The greatest is love
The greatest is love

 

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

“I Touch Myself”

Wow, this song really brings back some memories!

 

 

“I Touch Myself” by The Devinyls

 

I love myself I want you to love me
When I feel down I want you above me
I search myself I want you to find me
I forget myself I want you to remind me

 

I don’t want anybody else
When I think about you I touch myself
Ooh I don’t want anybody else Oh no, oh no, oh no

 

You’re the one who makes me come running
You’re the sun who makes me shine
When you’re around I’m always laughing
I want to make you mine

 

I close my eyes And see you before me
Think I would die If you were to ignore me
A fool could see Just how much I adore you
I get down on my knees I do anything for you

 

I don’t want anybody else
When I think about you I touch myself
Ooh I don’t want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

 

I love myslef I want you to love me
When i feel down I want you above me
I search myself I want you to find me
I forget myself I want you to remind me

 

I don’t want anybody else
And when I think about you I touch myself
I don’t want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

 

*spoken*
I want you
I don’t want anybody else
and when i think about you I touch myself
OO OO OO-OO Ahhhhh

 

I don’t want anybody else
When i think about you I touch myself
I don’t want anybody else
When i think about you I touch myself
I touch myself

 

I don’t anybody else
When i think about you I touch myself
(repeats and fades into end)

“Is This Love”

Remember when this song was so popular?

What A Great Song!

“Is This Love” by Survivor

 

I’ve heard talk of blind devotion
Lovers through thick and thin
Lives touched with real emotion
Faithful ’til the bitter end
Now, I must admit that the story’s attractive
I’ve lost in far too many affairs
I’ve seen all the pain that the morning can bring
I need to prove to myself
This is more than a crush
Can you convince me it’s not just a physical rush
Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love that’s been keepin’ me up all night
Is this love that I’m feelin
Is this love
So many nights in blind confusion
I’ve walked the line of love
We reach out in disillusion
When one night isn’t nearly enough
Now, I’d like to know that for once in my life
I’m sure of what tomorrow may bring
I’ve heard all your talk ,can I take it to heart
Now look me straight in the eye
‘Cause tonight is the night
We’ve got to ask each other if the moment is right
Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love that’s been keepin’ me up all night
Is this love that I’m feelin
Is this love
I’ve tread those mean streets, blind alleys
Where the currency of love changes hands
All touch — no feelin’
Just another one night stand
I need to know that there’s someone who cares
Could you be the angel to answer my prayer?
Is this love that I’m feelin’
Is this love that’s been keepin’ me up all night
Is this love that I’m feelin
Is this love
