just for now*



It's that time of year
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
Tears stop right here
I know we've all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

How did you know?
It's what I always wanted
You can never have too many of these
Will ya quit kicking me under the table
I'm trying, will somebody make her shut up about it?
Can we settle down please?

It's that time of year
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
Tears stop right here,
I know we've all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

Bite tongue
Deep breaths
Count to ten
Nod your head
(sniff sniff)

I think something is burning
Now you've ruined the whole thing
Muffle the smoke alarm
Whoever put on this music
Had better quick, sharp, remove it
Pour me another
Oh, don't wag your finger at me

It's that time of year
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
Tears stop right here,
I know we've all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

Get me outta here
Just for now
Just for now

*We are all well, but...we wait for news of Kilowatt's baby, news of work, news of Caleb Potter (who is not doing very well), we had a car towed, and Oldest was grazed by a van whilst riding his dirt bike.
I didn't mean to distress my readers, I'm just a little stressed.

I Yi Yi!

I hope Oldest's encounter was as not-serious as the time my daughter was hit by a car (which sounds so dramatic until I tell you that the car was backing down the driveway and knocked her over because she didn't get out of the way, but she wasn't hurt at all.)
