R.E.H.A.B. - A3

The strangest little things can keep you on track. When I get depressed I listen to this song. It's about rehab, and basically about perserving even when the light doesn't shine. So this morning I felt the need for some positive re-enforcement and this song took me to where I needed to be.


sometimes the light don't shine
sometimes the light don't shine
sometimes the light don't shine
what?
sometimes the light don't shine
what?
rehabilitated

some say the only way to ease the pain is gettin' down to pray
I'm with no guru, no teacher for me
I got no faith in no fantasy
one too many, went flyin' too long
so many mornings already gone wrong, baby
been so long and I've been feelin so bad
deep down in a dark, dark, dark cave

sometimes the light don't shine
that's the time we gotta open our eyes, yeah
sometimes the light don't shine

rehabilitated

sometimes the light don't shine
that's the time we gotta open our eyes, yeah
sometimes the light don't shine
you and me baby gonna get

rehabilitated

well ah, hey, I went down to N.A.
business was a bouncin' like back in the day
hypocrites hidin' habits all over town
pop stars gushin' bout the faith they've found
left me so cold, I walked out in the rain
waitin' early for that midnight train
been so long, I've been feeling so bad
I'm gonna blow away the blues tonight
'cause'a

sometimes the light don't shine
that's the time we gotta open our eyes, yeah
sometimes the light don't shine
you and me baby gonna get rehabilitated

sometimes the light don't shine
that's the time we gotta open our eyes, yeah
sometimes the light don't shine
you and me baby gonna get rehabilitated

R is for the recovery you're going to make in my sumptious retreat in the hills
E is for how I'm gonna enable you to cure all of your ills
H is for the hurtin' heartache I'm going to help you lose
A: assessment successful
B: good bye b-blues

sometimes the light don't shine
what?
rehabilitated
sometimes the light don't shine
rehabilitated
sometimes the light don't shine
rehabilitated
sometimes the light don't shine

sing it now

sometimes the light don't shine
that's the time we gotta open our eyes, yeah
sometimes the light don't shine
you and me baby gonna get rehabilitated

sometimes the light don't shine
that's the time we gotta open our eyes, yeah
sometimes the light don't shine
you and me baby gonna get rehabilitated

sometimes the light don't shine
everybody say
sometimes the light don't shine
everybody say
sometimes the light don't shine
everybody say
sometimes the light don't shine
you and me gonna get rehabilitated

you ever have a frustrated liver??
I know another guy who had a frustrated liver??
one morn, he's asleep
an just gets right up out and just went and
ran along the road .../.

Just keep on perservering...

I like the cut Amy Winehouse did for the Saudi Arabian market, it goes:

They tried to make me go to Riyadh
I said no no no!

Thanks for the song reccomendation. I love your poitive attitude it really is an inspiration.

Lori said...

Lou- Will do. They are the first band I have really been "into" for years. Started listening to them after I found out they did the theme song for the Sopranos.

Rick- Thank you and thanks for stopping by. I try to have a perspective, but always, my new friend, I wake up with hope.

Butterflies- I hope your weekend went well. I am learning it's when the light doesn't shine that's when you have to try your hardest. Find a glimmer of light, of hope.

Walking Man- You always surprise me. I always have dug The Who...Behind Blue Eyes is my favorite. When I wanna shake my booty, Mama's Got A Squeezebox does the trick.

Gledwood- LOL...Actually she has an amazing voice. She is starting to look better as of late. I must confess, that was my ringtone for about a month, much to the annoyance of my co-workers.

Frankie- Hope all is well in your world. Blessings should be passed on to each other. Your blog is pretty inspirational as well. We shall overcome.

i just had to come back, there is a line in your song that needs an answer... then i will be quiet.

i woke up with this on my heart, i saw your picture in my foggy sleep filled eyes.. i know this is meant for you..

Isaiah 60:19-20 (MSG)
19 (MSG) You'll have no more need of the sun by day nor the brightness of the moon at night. God will be your eternal light, your God will bathe you in splendor.
20 Your sun will never go down, your moon will never fade. I will be your eternal light. Your days of grieving are over.

Lori said...

Frankie- Thank you so much. I pray your picture is a vision I will see with my own eyes soon.
