BLINK LYRICS
1. Blink

I am naked in the water floating around

And my feet feel like they’ll never touch the ground

We just smoked a joint, and we’re all alright

 

I am lying in a hammock in a place I love

In mexico , with all the stars above

And everything’s perfect tonight

 

And then I blink, and I wake up driving a minivan

 

And it’s too nice to go to school today

So let’s cut class and run away

And grab our friends and go to the park

 

And it’s so nice just being here

With all our friends, all so near

And we can just hang around until way after dark

 

And then I blink, and I wake up driving a minivan

 

It’s true what they say, that life goes by so fast

Seems like just yesterday, but that was all in the past

But then I blink, and I wake up driving a minivan..

 

..But there are two little boys in the back of this car

and for them I would drive as far

as the end of the earth, I would for them

 

And we can still get naked and go to the beach

and my memories are within reach

and I’m making new memories with them

 

So we’ll go.  and we’ll drive together in our minivan

2. Dishes

When I first met you , you used to do the dishes

When I first met you, you couldn’t stop kissing me

When I first met you ,you’d listen to my wishes

Made me feel that there was no one else but me

 

It’s funny the longer you love someone, the less you do

it’s funny because you’d think the opposite would be true

It’s funny that it’s not funny at all that I do find myself here

 

When I first met you, we used to talk for hours

Staying up all night, we had so much to share

When I first met you, you used to buy me flowers

But now my empty vase just sits there  

 

It’s funny the longer you love someone..

 

When I first met you, we used to cook together

You would chop and I would stir with such glee

But now it seems that we have hit our stormy weather

I look around, there’s no one to be found, it’s just little me

 

It’s funny the longer you love someone …

 

3. Lou Reed

I was so sad to hear Lou Reed had died

It’s funny because it made me think of you

And all those years I had to try

Not to think of you

 

Every time I’d hear your name

Every time I’d smell your cologne

Or walk by the diner where we ate

I was not alone

 

Because the memory of you lingered

Far longer than I’d asked it to

My heart was wrapped around your finger

But now that’s a memory too

 

Every time I’d hear that song

About the halloween parade

I could hear you singing along

And I was not alone

 

Because the memory of you lingered ….

 

It’s funny that our love didn’t ‘even last that long

But those memories and your hold on me , well that was pretty strong

BUt I guess when you’re young, you just think love will go on and on

You love the guy, you love the band and how could it go wrong?

 

I’m listening to The Velvet Underground now

The music is mine once again

If i could go back to my younger self somehow

I’d say “all you need is time, my friend”

 

Because the memories won’t always linger

You’ll love again and you’ll lose again too

And then you’ll give your heart and get a ring on your finger

And those memories just become part of you

 

4. Remember Me

Remember me

Even when you forget

Remember me

When you’re feeling low

Remember me

Without regret

Oh, just remember me

 

Remember me

Even when you’re not yourself

Remember me

When you gaze at the books up on your shelf

Remember me

When you’re feeling lost

Oh, just remember me  

 

Remember me

 

Remember the night you met your true love

And the hours we’d play catch with that beat up baseball glove

Or listening to the games on the radio

Just remember me   

 

remember me

 

There are many things that you can forget:

Greed, hate, fear, loss and regret

But in the end there is just love and family

So please, please remember me

 

remember me

 

Remember that you live on in me

You made me who I am, for all the world to see

And I will share our story

And they’ll remember me

 

7. In a Moment

He was there to cheer his dad across the finishing line

Standing with his mom, bursting with pride

But on that Boston day, those men took that away

Lives, love, innocence,

Forever changed

 

In a moment, things can change

 

The phone is ringing it’s the doctor on the line

He says “I am so very sorry, but you don’t have much time,
So love the ones you love, let them know..

And all of the rest… just let it all go.”

 

In a moment, things can change

 

She’d always thought he was the one

And then they made their vows

They’d always had such fun, but they made it here somehow

Fighting, screaming, calling these names

She points to the door

She knows her life won’t be the same

 

In a moment, things can change

 

So, be with me,

Look at all there is to see

I don’t know why things change but they do

And I know that we have this moment… right now

 

She had a life inside of her, and then it stopped

She was aching to be a mother, but she can’t turn back the clock

Her husband doesn’t know what he should do

He says “babe, i love you so, and i know we’ll make it through”

 

‘cause in a moment, things can change

In a moment things can change

 

Be with me…. in this moment… Be with me… right now

 

 

10. The Men Will Talk to Me
I have traveled many miles

I have heard many tales

And even with the passage of time     

The memory never fails

So I will write down these words

Guard them as if they were my own..

 

… Oh, the men will talk to me…

 

I have given up the gun

But never the fight

For the weapon I choose now

Is this pen I use to write

And write down these words I will

With my wounded, aging hand

 

… Oh, the men will talk to me…

These are our stories

Our stories to share

Of loss and glory

Our cross to bare

These are our stories

And the stories must be told

… Oh, the men will talk to me…

These are my brothers and honor them I must, I must

And to these irregular ears, they can freely state and trust

The blood we shed is thicker than blood and the ties that bind us can’t be broken

 

The men will talk to me

 

 

 

13. Will You Be There

Some folks in Washington they know best

Making all the choices for all the rest

They’ve got Jesus on their side,

And all these laws to write

Well, i’ve just got one small request:  

 

Will you be there through the night feeds?

Will you be there when the teddy bear gets lost?  

Will you help us with all the bedtime books to read?

Will you help us with all the extra cost?

 

And I’m sure these folks they mean well

But with all of the judging, it’s hard to tell

But I’ve got love on my side

And I’m not going to hide

This is my story to tell:

 

I’m a mom and I love my two little boys

And they bring to my life so much joy

But this is our family: my boys, my man and me

And it’s not up to you to decide

 

Will you be there to cheer at the soccer games?

Stand in the rain and console if the game is lost ?

Will you join the PTA?  watch the kids don’t go astray?

Will you help us with all the extra cost?

 

It doesn’t matter if I’m rich or poor

It’s up to me and I’ve never been here before

This could be you, so just mind what  you’re fighting for

You say it’s about “life”

But it’s a lifetime, it’s a lifetime  

 

And I’m lucky that I live where I do

The choice was up to me and not up to you

Because for me, I know what’s best

So don’t put my family to the test,

I would never do that to you  

 

Will you be there to soothe the heartaches?
Just be there when they feel just a little lost?

Will you help to explain

That that they’ll feel joy and feel pain?

Will you help us with all the extra cost?

 

It doesn’t matter if I’m rich or poor...

 
5. I don't want to break your heart

I don’t wanna break your heart tonight

I just wanna get chinese and pretend we’re alright

I don’t want you to hold my hand

Or try to understand

No, I don’t want that tonight

 

I don’t wanna break your heart tonight 

I just wanna take it easy , just kick back and watch tv

I dont want to see you cry 

I don’t want you to ask me “why?”

No, I don’t want that tonight

 

I don’t wanna break your heart tonight 

So let's just sit on the couch and try not to fight

I don’t want you to scream

Or tell me i'm mean

I dont want you to say “it’ll all be ok”

Or kiss my face

Or leave in disgrace

I dont want you to hate me

Or  berate me

No, I don’t want that tonight

 

I just wanna curl up and be your girl tonight

I just wanna make love  

Put down the fighting glove tonight

‘cause we have had good times

And if I could, I would rewind

Oh, but I can’t tonight

 

I don’t wanna break your heart tonight

Or rip you apart or give you a fright

I don’t want lessons learned,

Or watch you get burned

Trying to act tough

I know this is rough

And we wake up tomorrow

full of sorrow 

As you try to explain

We could start over again

No, i don’t want that tonight

 

But there’s never a good time

And i know i’m not unkind

So I’ll just do it tonight

 

 

 

8. Who Knew

Who knew I’d be a country girl and you’d be a country boy

Who knew?

 

Who knew the beach could be so fun   

And it’s not scary to find “the one”

Who knew

 

I wouldn’t want it any other way

So let’s here forever stay

And celebrate every birthday

 

Who knew we’d have two little boys

In an old house full of toys

Who knew

 

And celebrate birthdays here

And decorate the christmas tree every year

Who knew

 

I wouldn’t want it any other way …..

 

Who knew the quiet life could be loud

That a parent could feel so proud

Who knew

 

Who knew we’d walk around in the woods

Come home, light our fire just because we could

Who knew

 

I don’t miss the city lights

Our stars are plenty bright

I don’t miss the city lights

Our stars are plenty bright

Up in the sky


I wouldn’t want it any other way

11. Stonington 

The fishing boats go out, the foghorn blows

Walk down the street, you’ll see someone you know

Stop by Toms for candy or the news

So happy to be …

 

...In stonington..  our village by the sea

 

Our  fire trucks, and our  library

Climb the lighthouse and  you will  see Sandy point and all the boats

So happy to be…

 

...In stonington ... our village by the sea

 

The farmers market at the docks or the mill

Grab a seat at Water Street and watch the room fill

With your friends old and new

So happy to be…

 

..In stonington..  our village by the sea

 

When you come to our town, well you gotta slow down

Like the salt in the air, you’ll want to hang around

For a sunset, a friend or a view:  

The stars in the sky or the waves on the sea

Either way,  you’re just happy to be...

 

...In stonington ….our village by the sea

 

The Merrill house and the Barber Shops

The Holy Ghost and Skippers Dock

church bells ring, trains zoom by

...in Stonington …

 

Pancakes from noahs, and Dinner at zacks

Pizza from the Palace, the train tracks

the cannons in the square that kept us free

so happy to be

..In Stonington….our village by the sea

home to you and me ….so happy to be in our village by the sea

 

 

 

14. I've Got  Heart

I’ve got eyes.. so I can see

I’ve got ears...so I can hear

I’ve got a heart.. so I can love you

 

I’ve got hands...to wave around

I’ve got feet...to dance on the ground

I’ve got a heart..so I can love you

 

I’ve got a nose...so I can smell
I’ve got a mouth.. with stories to tell

I’ve got a heart.. so I can love you

 

So I can love you

So lucky to love you

Oh and I do!  

 

 

 

 

6. Mmm Good

The sky is blue and the sun is shining

Through these big tall trees in this beautiful wood

My hair is wet ‘cause I’ve just been swimmin’

And my belly’s full, and I feel..

 

...Mmm good… Mmm good...Mmm good

 

Songs in my head and my hands won’t stop playin’

Words on my page, and I feel understood

Circle of song, it feels kinda like prayin’

And I’m sitting here, and I feel…

 

...Mmm good… Mmm good...Mmm good

 

And I wish you could be here to see me

To hear the songs and the acorns fall

The sturgeon on the cove, the muffins on the stove,

..but with you here,  I might not see it all

 

The songs are still comin’ but soon I’ll be leavin’

Back to our village, and our neighborhood

To the boys and the noise and all of the gigglin’

In our home.. it will be..

 

...Mmm good… Mmm good...Mmm good

 

9. My Home

It's raining on the fourth of July

I'm far away from apple pie

Or a Brooklyn rooftop with a view

I'm far away from it all, but I'm close to you

 

You are my home,

My family

Wherever you roam

You know I'll be

 

With you, I share my dreams, my life

I'm so excited to be your wife

And to love you til the day that I die

We'll celebrate the fourth of July

 

You are my home...

 

Day of independence,

And I've never felt so free

To imagine with someone

The life we'd like to lead.

And I've never felt love like this before,

I can't believe I'm gonna love you more and more and more

 

You are my home...

 

 

12. The One For Me

I don’t know why I didn’t go...on believing

I don’t know why I didn't show...my feelings

I dont know why i didn't see...you were the one for me...I was the one for you

 

I dont know why I didn't dare..to even try

Pretended i didn't care...when we said goodbye

I dont know why I didn't say ...you were the one for me..I was the one for you

 

You were the one, you were the one for me..I was the one, I was the one..for you

 

I dont know why I was so scared...to give you my heart

Felt so unprepared...right from the start

I don’t know how I couldn’t see you were the one for me...I was the one for you…

 

You were the one, you were the one for me..I was the one, I was the one..for you

 

Time will tell but time can tease

Time was meant to put me at ease

But time’s been cruel and not treated me well

As far as I can see...you’re still the one for me... I am the one for you..

 

I don't know how I can’t still go...on believing

I wish I could just show...my feelings

It’s so clear to see ...you are the one for me...I am the one for you

 

You are the one, you are the one for me...I am the one , I am the one for you…
