the heart of the matter

this song has so many great lines. classic, really. i love

"what are all these voices outside loves open door
make us throw off our contentment and beg for something more?


"ah, the trust and self assurance that lead to happiness are the very things we kill, i guess. ahh pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms and the work i put between us, you know, it doesnt keep me warm"

"The End of the Innocence" was released in 1989 and my metal chick-ness kept it off my radar until a few years later when msof and i separated for about a year. this song didnt really speak to our situation, but it was about breaking up and moving on and my heart ached every time i heard it.
i heard it in the car today and it made me think of mr ex man. some lines more than others. i came home and watched it on youtube 3 times in a row, belting it out in my pathetic, talentless, voice.


  1. I love the name of your blog and YES there are many out there. I love the YSA! Even those who graduate from the YSA. Our son almost graduated when he found his wonderful mate. That was a year and 1/2 ago. Hang in there. They still exist.

    I couldn't listen to the song but your message melted my heart. I came by because I love the quote you left about the simple act of kindness~ saving a life might be your sons. So true and and funny!

  2. thanks for the kind words. glad you stopped by! hope to hear from you again.
