Hearing it for the millionth time, the first time.

The other night Jenn and I were driving home and I put an old cd in. Blue's Traveler, haven't listened to it in forever. When song number 11 came on I yelled...ohohoh I love this song, turned up the volume and started singing along. Then tears started rolling down my cheeks. It has a whole new meaning to me now. Listening to John Popper sing those words...it really sounded like everyone I know, ESPECIALLY JENN singing them to me.

I think they need to be sung to all you suffering like me too...so my song to all you wonderful women who read my blog who feel the same way I do, lost, confused, hurt and alone.


Just Wait-Music and Lyrics by John Popper

If ever you are feeling like you're tired
And all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you
And your appetite for pain has drinken its fill

I ask of you a very simple question
Did you think for one minute that you are alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only
Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

If you think I've given up on you you're crazy
And if you think I don't love you well then you're just wrong
In time you just might take to feeling better
Time is the beauty of the road being long

I know that now you feel no consolation
But maybe if I told you and informed you out loud
I say this without fear of hesitation
I can honestly tell you that you make me proud

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

If anything I might have just said has helped you
If anything I might have just said helped you just carry on
Your rise uphill may no longer seem a struggle
And your appetite for pain may all but be gone

I hope for you and cannot stop at hoping
Until that smile has once again returned to your face
There's no such thing as a failure who keeps trying
Coasting to the bottom is the only disgrace

Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come
Just wait
Just wait
Just wait
And it will come

I don't know the band and I don;t know the song (does that make me a complete dork?) but the words really resonated here...

Thanks!
