I don't want to be all depressed about anything. But this is the song of the moment. The song that fills my heart, and I'm going to let it for a moment. Let it be a swift moment though.

I think it means more because of the explanation that came with why it was written. Brooke makes me laugh, and smile with the gentle way that she exposes herself in her songs. Have to admire that.

if you get a chance, have a listen to it.....

The Thief

Your eyes are full
Full of the future of us
The air changes as you look across
At me in that wondering way

It is as if
I knew you before we spoke
Do our hearts know something we don't?
Conspiring, converging without giving us any say

You, sing me to sleep
Talk down my walls
Look through my windows as I wait
You could be the thief
I give the key to

You're ruining me
With secrets and gestures and looks
With sonnets from second-hand books
Playing the chords in me nobody knew how to play

It fits in your hand like water in rain
It unlocks our two different selves
And shows we are the same
Rather than wait `til I put me out for the taking
You're breaking
You're breaking
You're breaking into my heart
And I'm letting you

Certain songs are very meaningful at certain times in our lives. I went on youtube and listened to Bette Midler sing "The Rose" a couple of times last night and a couple more today. ec
