No Hard Feelings (From The Motion Picture “May It Last: A Portrait of th...

                                        

I heard this in the car today.  I'd been reading over at Liz's
about her story bag, filled with memories.  This led to a link to an old post of Grace's,
which I remembered so clearly upon rereading it.

And then this song came to me, giving me even more to ponder.  So, I have been.

I like this song, this band.

I'm too tired for any more tonight.  A very bare-bones post.  Nothing eloquent or mind-boggling (wait, are any of my posts like that?!  haha)...just sharing.

Sharing seems to be one thing I'm really able to do.
I hope you enjoy this song too.

No Hard Feelings
When my body won't hold me anymore
And it finally lets me free
Will I be ready?
When my feet won't walk another mile
And my lips give their last kiss goodbye
Will my hands be steady?
When I lay down my fears
My hopes and my doubts
The rings on my fingers
And the keys to my house
With no hard feelings
When the sun hangs low in the west
And the light in my chest
Won't be kept held at bay any longer
When the jealousy fades away
And it's ash and dust for cash and lust
And it's just hallelujah
And love in thoughts and love in the words
Love in the songs they sing in the church
And no hard feelings
Lord knows they haven't done
Much good for anyone
Kept me afraid and cold
With so much to have and hold
Mmh
When my body won't hold me anymore
And it finally lets me free
Where will I go?
Will the trade winds take me south
Through Georgia grain or tropical rain
Or snow from the heavens?
Will I join with the ocean blue
Or run into the savior true
And shake hands laughing
And walk through the night
Straight to the light
Holding the love I've known in my life
And no hard feelings
Lord knows they haven't done
Much good for anyone
Kept me afraid and cold
With so much to have and hold
Under the curving sky
I'm finally learning why
It matters for me and you
To say it and mean it too
For life and its loveliness
And all of its ugliness
Good as it's been to me
I have no enemies
I have no enemies
I have no enemies
I have no enemies

Michelle~ Yes, Michelle and you too...any way we come, we are enough.

Jude~ Ha. Always. But, I knew I'd forget if I didn't find and post this last night.

Liz~ Thank you for starting me down the path! Thank you for always coming here and commenting. I've tried to focus on that myself lately and being over at your place has enriched me so much.

Susan~ You are most welcome!

ah, no hard feelings...i used to think, no regrets, to have no
regrets, but then i needed to go through that part i guess when
it became nothing but regret...

sharing is what is needed.
Love,

Grace~ I have a friend who has been trying to live with "no regrets". I think that is a hard goal. And I agree, sharing is important and I love to do it! xo
