    Oh wow I found a song I wrote 2 yrs. ago when I was 17 from my first major break-up with what was my first true love. Gosh reflecting back now it's almost like what the hell was I thinking lol? So I figured I'd post it at least it's heart felt and no worries I've been single now for 2 yrs. and no regrets at all!


    You always hear about once upon time/
    Love at first sight/ happily ever after/
    And that first kiss goodnight/
    The princess always has her prince/
    And the glass slipper always fits/
    Somebody tell me what ever happened to us/
    I hold on to a photograph in my hand/
    Wishing it was real/ and that I'd understand/
    Oh what could've been/

    (Chorus):
    I'm learning how to live without your love/
    Goodbye my fairytale ending/
    I had so much trust for you/ yet you broke my heart/
    Goodbye my fairytale ending/
    Always and forever you and me/
    I thought that was the way our life would be/
    I was counting on forever/ now I'll never know/
    Goodbye my fairytale ending/


    I'm sitting upstairs in my room all alone/
    Looking in the mirror as I spray on some cologne/
    It's been awhile but I've been here before/
    Then I hear the doorbell ring/
    I'm starting to debate whether to answer the door/
    I ask myself why is he here/ he'll never heal this hurt/
    I start to shed a tear/ thoughts of you start to appear/
    Oh what could've been/

    (Chorus) x1

    Everything feels like its closing in/
    I don't even know where to begin/
    I was so young and pure when we met/
    But don't worry I hold no regrets/
    I gave so much I can't take back/
    I was living in a dream of you and me/
    Then I found out it was all just fantasy/
    When it comes to you I may have been wrong/
    But in the end this will only make me strong/

    (Chorus) x2

    What a great song! And it brings up a topic I've been wanting to see discussed, but I always thought it would be raised by one of us old guys!

    So many RJ'ers (people) believe in the fairy tale romance, the prince, the knight in shining armor, the perfect guy. Trust me, he doesn't exist. You may find a guy that fills those requirements for a period of time...even years...but eventually you'll find out he's human and has his foibles and flaws...just as you have your foibles and flaws. When you find out the guy you've chosen is not perfect, a lot of you say that you will throw him out or have thrown him out, instead of realizing he's got a lot of good going for him, and maybe, just maybe, "we can work through this imperfection and have a life that, although not perfect, is pretty darned good." Taking the guy with the imperfections is not giving up and settling for second best. It's real life and I believe all of us in LTR's have done the same thing. You've got to work hard to make a relationship work, but in the long run, it's worth it!

    I would like to know the tune! Is it written to the tune of something or is it lyric and tune original? I like it.

    Mostly about love in general:

    Listen to Lyrics.
    The video is just because I'm a nerd.




    Key lines for me are:

    Forces within me mix reason with lust, but
    I'll try to accept it and not make it worse
    'Cause I know I might loose it by taking the chance,
    [But] love without pain isn't really romance [OK]
    Only this moment
    Holds us together
    Lost in confusion
    Feelings are out there
    Scared of devotion
    Doubting intentions
    Deep down inside I know our love will die

    Awe thanks guys to answer 1 ? the tune was something I came up with out of my head back then. I think sometimes weither you write or just relate to lyrics themselves sometimes you'll love a song just for the lyrics even if it's in a genere you normally wouldn't listen to.

    This works for me whenever I need it. I blare it nice and loud. The best break up song I've ever heard. (A. Schwartz and H. Dietz)
    [url][/url]

    I'll go my way by myself
    This is the end of romance
    I'll go my way by myself
    Love is only a dance
    I'll try to apply myself
    And teach my heart how to sing
    I'll go my way by myself like a bird on the wing
    I'll face the unknown
    I'll build a world of my own
    No one knows better than I myself
    I'm by myself alone.

    I'll go my way by myself
    Here's how the comedy ends
    I'll have to deny myself love and laughter and friends
    Gray clouds in the sky above
    Have put a blotch on my fun
    I'll try to fly high above
    For my place in the sun.

    I'll face the unknown
    I'll build a world of my own
    No one knows better than I myself
    No - no one knows better than I myself
    How I wanted love and fell
    Now I say what the hell
    All of those black days are gone
    Cause it's solo, all alone
    By myself, from now on!

    It sounds so corny now but when I was first dumped, I listened endlessly to Air Supply's "Lost in Love"and Burton Cummings's "Stand Tall".

    Wailed like a cat in heat, drowning in my self pity. I barely bat an eyelash at failed relationships anymore..good grief!icon_lol.gif

    Oh yes, the earliest angst I experienced with a lovely but hopeless and clueless French Canadian. Handsome as all get-out. Of all the men from that romantic culture, I chose one completely detached from connectivity on every level.

    Now Bill had a relationship that spanned 12 frustrating years and in the last one or two this was his most played.

    Then once free he did, in fact, find what he was looking for! *blushes modestly*

    Hey rigsby! How cool to see you!

    a bit of your post:"So many RJ'ers (people) believe in the fairy tale romance, the prince, the knight in shining armor, the perfect guy. Trust me, he doesn't exist. You may find a guy that fills those requirements for a period of time...even years...but eventually you'll find out he's human and has his foibles and flaws...just as you have your foibles and flaws. When you find out the guy you've chosen is not perfect, a lot of you say that you will throw him out or have thrown him out, instead of realizing he's got a lot of good going for him, and maybe, just maybe, "we can work through this imperfection and have a life that, although not perfect, is pretty darned good." Taking the guy with the imperfections is not giving up and settling for second best. It's real life and I believe all of us in LTR's have done the same thing. You've got to work hard to make a relationship work, but in the long run, it's worth it!"


    For both of us the fairy tale romance, the prince, the knight in shining armour IS the human with the foibles and flaws, openly admitting we were each a work in progress, aware of our own shortcomings and striving, out of love for each other, to overcome them. Maybe that's the magic trick, the touch-stone, the silver bullet. When we met we each found someone we could RELATE to as human as ourselves (each other).

    Both of us tend to downplay the 'hard work' part, as for us the hard work part set a comparative standard for utter and at times unfettered joy, not to mention sex that included emotions, and there's no surpassing that particular intoxication of body and mind.


    - respectfully and glad to see you, Bill and Doug of meninlove

    The Pieces Don't Fit Anymore - James Morrison



    I've been twisting and turning,
    In a space that's too small.
    I've been drawing the line and watching it fall,
    You've been closing me in, closing the space in my heart.
    Watching us fading and watching it all fall apart.

    Chorus
    Well I can't explain why it's not enough, Cause I gave it all to you.
    And if you leave me now, oh just leave me now.
    It's the better thing to do,
    It's time to surrender,
    It's been to long pretending.
    Theres no use in trying,
    When the pieces don't fit anymore, Pieces don't fit here anymore.

    You pulled me under,
    If I had to give in.
    Such a beautiful myth,
    That's breaking my skin.
    Well I'll hide all the bruises,
    I'll hide all the damage that's done.
    But I show how I'm feeling until all the feeling has gone.

    Well I can't explain why it's not enough, Cause I gave it all to you.
    And if you leave me now, oh just leave me now.
    It's the better thing to do,
    It's time to surrender,
    It's been to long pretending.
    Theres no use in trying,
    When the pieces don't fit anymore, Pieces don't fit here anymore.

    Ooh don't missunderstand,
    How I feel.
    Cause I've tried, yes I've tried.
    But still I don't know why, no I don't know why.
    III dont know why...... whyyyyyyyy!

    Well I can't explain why it's not enough, Cause I gave it all to you.
    And if you leave me now, oh just leave me now.
    It's the better thing to do,
    It's time to surrender,
    It's been to long pretending.
    Theres no use in trying,
    When the pieces don't fit anymore, Pieces don't fit here anymore.

    This was an email I exchanged with meninlove about this thread. I had been looking for a thread like this one to piggyback onto try to talk some experienced stuff to RJ'ers still looking for love and commitment. I've observed too much idealism and not enough realism in threads talking about potential mates. I wanted to bring a little reality check to the boards. The OP of this thread ws bemoaning the loss of his fairytale. If people weren't all looking for the knight, prince, etc., maybe they'd have a little more luck in finding him. Also, once they've found someone suitable, a little less judgmentalism would maybe, just maybe, let them keep the guy around for a while.

    I think you two (meninlove) and I are essentially saying the same thing, but has that perspective come from our age, experience and maturity? Were we always this bright?...I know, I wasn't. I would venture that the majority of the younger RJ'ers are still looking for that Prince, knight or soulmate, and are overlooking the fact that he's that normal, average guy standing right over there.

    My hard work comment was to stress that any relationship isn't as easy as described in the movies. RJ'ers, please don't run away from your guy at the first sign of trouble. Please...it took you so long to find him, don't you think it's worth the trouble to work through some difficulties? The two of you (meninlove) have obviously done so, and my partner and I have done so. I wasn't trying to imply that our relationships were so difficult that they're not worth having...heaven forfend!

    I'm seeing way too much judgment from the younger guys (relative term...to me that's guys in their 40's and younger), "if my partner does Z, I'll dump him!" I'm sure that in our younger days, if you had asked my partner, "if Chad ever does X, will you stick with him?" and the answer would have been a resounding "Not on your life!" Well, over the years I have done X and I've done it several times, and I'm likely to do it again. But my partner's still here and I don't think he's going anywhere. I'm merely suggesting that guys should lighten up, be a little less opinionated when it comes to love.

    I want to write something like this on the thread, ( maybe even copy this email) but I wanted to run it by you before doing so, and get some input. What do you think?


    BTW: X, in the above example is gambling!

    Chad

    How cool!


    ....and to assist, here's clips of emails we sent to rigsby (what a guy!)

    I think the biggest foible is the idea that the 'prince, knight in shining armour' etc, is to be some perfect being. In the Narnia series (what can I say, I'm a children's author) Prince Caspian thought he was a poor choice for being a king, and feared he wouldn't measure up. He was told that was why he was the best choice ,because he knew he had flaws and was trying, and slowly succeeding, to overcome them.

    Before Bill (and conversely, before Doug says Bill) we would have been saying 'no way' to a lot of things. The knowing of each other coupled with the potent power of feelings made us each try much harder out of a desire to be the best we could for each other.

    -Doug of meninlove

    You know what's odd... I'm in the middle of a breakup right now, and the only song that comes to mind for this particular situation involving me and my soon-to-be ex is this little ditty by Cole Porter:

    It was just one of those things,
    just one of those crazy flings.
    One of those bells that now and then rings,
    just one of those things.

    It was just one of those nights,
    just one of those fabulous flights.
    A trip to the moon on gossamer wings,
    just one of those things.

    If we´d thought of it, ´bout the end of it,
    when we started painting the town,
    We´d have been aware that our love affair
    was too hot not to cool down.

    So goodbye, dear, and Amen,
    here´s hoping we´ll meet now and then.
    It was great fun but it was just one
    of those things.

    It was just, just one of those nights,
    just one of those fabulous flights.
    A trip to the moon on gossamer wings,
    just one of those things.

    If we´d thought of it ´bout the end of it,
    when we started painting that town.,
    We´d have been aware that our love affair
    was too hot not to cool down.

    So goodbye, goodbye, bye-bye, goodbye, baby, and Amen,
    here´s hoping we´ll meet now and then.
    It was great fun but it was just one
    of those things.
