RE: Lack of Creativity by Shania fans Corner


Here is another little something to read and maybe it can help distract people from getting so personal and being so rude to each other. Wrote this one after listening to Home Ain't Where His Heart is Anymore.

You Don’t Love Me Anymore

I wish that I could just walk away
‘Cause baby, I know you don’t need me to stay
I’m really tired of playing this stupid game
‘Cause what we want and what we need are not always the same
We both know the truth in our hearts and I hear it in your voice when you say my name
I don’t want to be the only one still holdin’ on
When in my heart I know all hope is gone
After all the love filled happy years
All that‘s left is to cry these lonely tears
All that I can hear is the slammin’ of the door
I’ll just leave my heart in pieces here on the floor
‘Cause I know you don’t love me anymore
You don’t love me anymore
Why can’t it be like it was before
I’m still holdin’ on to the memories
When I know all you want is to be free
You’re not happy I can feel it in your kiss
How did we let it come to this
We’ve gone past the point of no return
This was a lesson we both had to learn
You don’t love me anymore
I’ll just leave my heart here by the door
‘Cause I know you don’t love me anymore
In my mind I know it’s not worth fightin’ for
But my heart just won’t let me go
Oh when will it ever know
That you just don’t love me anymore

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi Guys,  This one was inspired by the new pictures that surfaced.  Not one of my favorites but I thought since the pictures are such a big deal right now that you might like to read something they inspired me to write.  Wrote it from Mutt's view.
Enjoy!!

Arabian Nights

 I had a dream of you dancing across the sand
You were with him and you were holding his hand
He was pretending he was your Arabian Knight
He stopped to hold his Arabian Princess in his arms so tight
All I could do was stand and watch and wish that it was me
In my dream it was so clear and easy to see
You were truly over me
It was an Arabian Night
The pyramids were in sight
And all I wanted was to be the one who was holding you tight
You were on a horse; your hair was glistening in the sun
I could tell by the look on your face that you were having fun
I saw the look in your eyes and I was hoping to see
That you were still missing me
But to my disgust I couldn’t find a single trace
All I could see was the look of love on your face
It was so easy to see
You were truly over me
I followed you back to your hotel room
And as you stood on the balcony with him I caught the scent of your perfume
It was an Arabian night
And the pyramids were in sight
And I was wishing I was still the one who was holding you tight
He was pretending he was your Arabian Knight
And he stopped to hold his Arabian Princess so tight
It was an Arabian night
And the pyramids were in sight
And he was the one who was holding you tight

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Ok time for another one.  I was inspired to write this one after a conversation with another member about her home on Mystique and how she went there allegedly alone to deal with her divorce.  I had a hard time believing anyone would go there alone.  This one is a little racey so I waited a while to post it as I wrote it several months ago.  I hope it doesn't offend anyone.  That is not my intention nor is it my intention to disrespect Shania in any way.  I hope you enjoy it!!!

       Mystique Paradise 

See you naked with your guitar
Just you and me underneath the stars
Lyin’ on a blanket on the beach
Just stayin’ out of reach
No one else around
Nothing here to bring us down
Close your eyes and don’t make a sound
Hear the waves crashin’ on the shore
You’ll be beggin’ me for more
Way down in the sands
You’ll be like putty in my hands
The sun is slippin’ down into the sea
Baby you’ve never been so into me
Lyin; in your arms is where I wanna be
This is better than any fantasy
As the waves are crashin’ in
I just wanna be skin on skin
So baby, just give in
The water’s lappin’ at our feet
And your kisses taste so sweet
There’s nothing quite as nice
Lyin’ on the beach in this Mystique paradise
The sweet smell of sweat and suntan lotion
I can’t stop this raw emotion
Makin’ love by the ocean
As the waves are crashin’ in
I just wanna be skin on skin
So baby, just give in
There’s nothin’ quite as nice
Lyin’ on the beach in this Mystique paradise

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

HOT!!---it sure would be an Erotic fantasy to be alone in Mystique Paradise with a dream lover!

Well done from a fellow forum member Tonto on an Awesome song. Very descriptive and thought provoking!

Thanks Katie for the encouragement. I was afraid that I might offend some people or that they would think I was being disrespectful. Just doing my thing and creating though.

Something to read while we wait for more pictures of the greatest entertainer ever!!
I was thinking of Shani and wondering where she was and who she was with and I thought maybe I should write a letter.  I was going to write her a letter from my heart but then I talked myself out of it as I know she gets billions a day and would never read it anyway.  But at least it did inspire me to write this.  I hope you like it.  Enjoy!!

         Dear Heart 

Dear heart
What have you done
You weren’t supposed to let us fall for anyone
What will we do
I guess I’ll just blame it all on you
Why did you let us fall so hard this way
What were those silly words you made me say
How could you let it go so far
Why did you make me wish upon that star
Now there’s nowhere for us to hide
Why did you let him get so deep inside
Dear heart I tried to keep you safe and hidden from it all
Now you’re the one who let us fall
Did you hear the words he said
Now we’re barely hangin’ by a thread
We’re fallin’ way to hard
Why did you even let down your guard
Dear heart why can’t you see
What are you trin’ to do to me
Dear heart how can you let this be
Dear hear I hope he’s fallin’ just as hard for me
Dear heart what have you done
You weren’t supposed to let us fall for anyone
What will we do
Dear heart I guess I’ll just blame it all on you
Dear heart  

Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Picked this one out to post because of Kevy!!  Don't think she doesn't have the right to say she is still hurting.
Don’t was written after listening to Don’t.  I was thinking about how hurt and angry Shania must feel as the life and love she created with this man was destroyed or lost depending on which story is true.  Enjoy!!Don’t
 

 

I can see it in your eyes; I can feel it in your kiss
How did we let it come to this
Don’t tell me that it was somethin’ you just couldn’t resist
Don’t tell me you didn’t know
How it all would end, how this all would go
Don’t say you couldn’t see 
What this would do to you and me
Don’t say is this how it has to be
I know this is no way to live
But this is the one mistake I just can’t forgive
Don’t come to me down on your knees
Beggin’ for one more try
Don’t tell me I have no right to think it’s just another lie
Don’t tell me how to feel
My heart’s not made of steel
I can’t let you come back in
I won’t risk you breakin’ it again
Don’t tell me all the things that should have been
Don’t tell me another lie by sayin’ that it’s done
You promised that I’d be the only one
We both know it’s all your fault
You never imagined you’d get caught
Don’t tell me that I’ll ever again learn to trust
Just walk away and leave my heart shattered here in the dust
I know what I have to do and now matter how much it hurts I know I must
Don’t you remember when you promised to be mine
For the rest of time
Don’t tell me how to feel
Don’t tell me this is real
You hurt me way to deep
With the promises you didn’t keep
Don’t try and tell me what we had isn’t gone
You know this can’t go on
Don’t come to me down on your knees
Beggin’ for one more try
Don’t tell me I have no right to think it’s just another lie
Just don’t



Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Our song was written after reading the letter Shania wrote and thinking and wondering and trying to figure out which song made her cry.  Was it a song she and Mutt wrote together?  Was it a song that he wrote most of it for her or was it a song that Shania wrote most of it for him?  Was the very first song they ever danced to or was the very first song they ever made love to?  What made the song so emotional for her?

Wish I knew what song it was.

       Our Song

 

I was drivin’ down the road in my car
And I was pushin’ that pedal down so hard
Then our song came on the radio
I shook my head and thought out loud where did it all go
I turned the radio off ‘cause I really didn’t want to know
And down that sad and lonely road I did not want to go
So I drove in silence all the way home
I walked in the door
So unhappy that you’re not there anymore
Such a lonely place
You’re not here to fill this empty space
I needed to hear some noise
I was longing to hear your voice
But I had to settle for just the radio
So I switched it on
And again they were playin’ our song
And every time I hear that song
My memories take me back to lovin’ you all night long
Back to when our love was so strong
Back to when there was no right or wrong
I close my eyes and I see
You still here and loving me
When our song starts to play
I can still hear you say
I’m always gonna love you this way
And I just can’t forget
‘Cause this was the song that was playin’ the night we met
And now everytime I hear our song I just want to cry
And I dream about just one more try
How could we let something so beautiful die
And when our song comes to an end
I close my eyes and I wonder what could have been
And that’s what happens every time I hear our song
My memories take me back to lovin’ you all night long
Back to when our love was so strong
Back to when there was no right or wrong
I close my eyes and I see
You still here and loving me
That’s what happens right or wrong
When I play our song
All night long

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

They're all great Tonto! smile Here's a poem Inspired by Shania's letter.

Reality of life
Life isn't just full of happiness
It's sunsets, it's love, it's tears
It's the thought's of yesterday memories
That can wash away all our fears.

It's that very painful experience
That each one of us has had
it's the laughter that fills the air
it's the tears when you are sad.

It's loving that some-one special
that at one time made you smile
it's the pain of loosing that person
But the memories that make it worthwhile

It's that child in every one of us
Although in time we'll all be old
Its the good times we'll never forget
it's the memories we'll always hold

it's the hug that we all need
when we'd rather drown in our sorrow
I's the hope in every one of us
That makes us hold on for tomorrow.

Hi,
Wrote this one after posting Our Song and thinking about what made
Shania cry. Enjoy!!

What Made her Cry

What made her cry
Was the shattered dreams and lies
She could see it in his eyes
He didn't want to stay
But how could she just let him walk away
So many promises he didn't keep
Now she's the one crying herself to sleep
Why did he give up on her
Why couldn't her remember the way they were
The words he said
Keep resounding in her head
And the tears they fall like rain
And she feels like she'll go insane
And in his heart no love remains
And she knows there won't be another try
And that's what made her cry
What made her cry
Was the broken promise of "til the day we die"
And she just can't accept the reason why
He's what made her cry
And he can't look her in the eye
Because he knows he's what made her cry

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Let me start by saying this is just me being creative and I do not want anyone to think that I think this is what happened. I am just being creative and trying to relate to all aspects of the situation. I just write what I am inspired to write. I wrote this one after re reading the letter Shania wrote. Although I know this is not what has happened with Eja I was just thinking about him and how it is affecting him.

Happy Family

Can't you see
How this is affecting me
You think I don't see or hear
But I do, can't you see my fear
I hear you when you fight
I just want everything to be alright
Sometimes you don't know it but I cry myself to sleep at night
I just don't understand
All I want is for Mommy and Daddy to hold my hand
I want to hear Daddy laugh and see Mommy smile again
Sometimes it seems the fighting never ends
I hear Mommy crying through the door
She says she doesn't love Daddy anymore
Why does it have to be this way
What happened to the days when we used to laugh and play
Why can't they see
I miss the family we used to be
Mommy's not happy and Daddy seems so sad
Is it because of me, did I do something bad
I wish sometimes i could disappear
So I wouldn't have to feel this fear
I don't want Daddy to go
I do love him so
I wish that Daddy could apologize
And dry the tears from Mommy's eyes
I wish that she would let him stay
I don't want my family to go away
Why can't they see
How bad this is hurting me
I feel so sad deep inside my heart
Why does my family have to fall apart
This is all so scary for me
Why is this the way it has to be
Why can't they see how this is affecting me
What's happened to my happy family
It used to be
Together just us three
Can somebody tell me
What has happened to my happy family



Happy Family was written after re reading the letter Shania wrote. Although I know this is not what has happened with Eja I was just thinking about him and how it is affecting him.
Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

I Wish You Were Still My Man was written after I read this quote "...I think that if anything ever happens to Mutt or Eja, that'll just be the end of me. Just put me in a straitjacket. I won't get through it. {Laughs} If anything happens to my husband or my child, I won't get through it. I just love my husband so much. He's like the most special person. He is half of me; Without him I would be half a person. I really would be. You might has well just cut off my arms and legs"  and was thinking about how your letter made me feel like you still felt this way.   This is why I think she is still hurting very much and she has a right to be.

I Wish You Were Still My Man

I thought I saw you just the other day
Wondered if I did what would I sayI was shopping at the big Wal Mart
You were puttin’ all of our favorite things in your cart
So I chased you down the aisleHopin’ to catch you and see your smile
But then I could see It wasn’t you it was just a memory
So it got me thinkin’ about the way we used to be
And how it was when you were lovin’ me
How we’d watch our favorite movie and you’d cry
And claim you just had somethin’ in your eye
How you used to rub my feetAnd talk to me so sweet
The way we used to take long walks
How we didn’t have to talk
The way you always used to hold my hand
And I really wish you were still my man
But now that you’re lovin’ her
Things will never be the way they were
How we used to dance all night
How you would hold me tight
How I used to run my fingers through your hair
How I thought you’d always be there
How we were so in love
And each other was all were thinkin’ of
And now that you’ve given back your wedding band
And you’ll never again hold my hand
All I can say is I’m doing the best I can
But in my heart I wish you were still my man
And now that you’ve given back your wedding band
And you’ll never again hold my handAll I can say is I’m doing the best I can
But way down deep in my heart I wish you were still my man
And I’m doin’ the best I can But I wish you were still my man

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi guys,
Wrote this one after re reading her letter and thinking she sounded as if she was still hanging on to a lot of her emotions and trying to convince herself that it all didn't really happen.

She Won’t Tell It To Her Heart

There she goes down the street
She’s lost her smile it used to be so sweet
It’s the same old story everybody knows
And on her face the heartache it shows
She used to be her best friend
Right up until the very end
They played her for a fool
How could they be so cruel
And she knows it in her head
She can still hear the words that he said
But she won’t tell it to her heart
How he tore their world apart
Broke and shattered all her dreams
Took all her hope or so it seems
And how will she ever explain to their child just what this means
And tonight she’ll cry herself to sleep
With those silent tears she always cries and no one will hear a peep
As the pain is like a knife and cuts so deep
And she won’t tell it to her heart
How he tore their world apart
Broken and shattered all her dreams
Took all her hope so it seems
And how will she ever explain to their child just what this means
No she won’t tell it to her heart that she needs to let him go
But the way she feels she’ll never let him know
She won’t let him see how much he still gets to her
And how in her broken heart she still wishes they could go back to the way they were
So she won’t tell it to her heart
How he tore her world apart
Broke and shattered all her dreams
Took all her hope or so it seems
And how will she explain to their child just what this means
No she won’t tell it to her heart
She’ll cry those silent tears for all her shattered dreams
And wish he hadn’t torn her world apart
But she won’t tell it to her heart

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Here is another one I wrote after reading about Shania attending the horse show and also in her letter about her riding the Spanish and Arabian horses.  Enjoy!!

 

The Ride 

She rides an Arabian Stallion across the desert sand
She closes her eyes and tries so hard to understand
And d she lets go of the reins
She feels the blood racing through her veins
And as she and the horse become part of each other
She can’t help but wonder how they ever lost one another
She can feel the wind in her face
As the horse somehow fills her heart’s empty space
And the world seems to fade away
And she loves that there are no words she has to say
The communication between her and the horse
It is soft and unspoken with no predetermined course
Unlike the soul mate that she lost that seems to have no remorse
And as she tries so hard to concentrate on the ride
She can feel the pain welling up so deep inside
As she spurs her stallion on he senses the urgency of her need
And he opens his soul and he pours on the speed
She’s ridin’ with the wind tryin’ to outrun the pain and the tears
Tryin’ to outrun the heartache that’s been building for years
Deep within her soul she’s let of all the ties
As the wind rushes by it whispers no lies
As she streaks across the sand she’s never felt so free
At one with the horse is how she was meant to be
With the wind in her hair
She seems to outrun all her cares
And she’s tryin’ to outrun the pain and the tears
Tryin’ to outrun the heartache that’s been building for years
As she streaks across the sand she knows her shattered heart soon will be made whole
By the Arabian Stallion as he becomes a part of her soul

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi,
I wrote this one after hearing about the death of Shania's grandmother.  I was thinking about how hard it must be for Shania right now losing her grandmother but having to hide her sadness from Eja because it is so close to his birthday.  Another difficult time for her.  I hope this will help her to see that are people who still support her and are there for her no matter what happens.  So I'd like to dedicate in honor and memory of Selina Twain 1923-2009.

Just Wait

She’s been up all night, cup of coffee in her hand
She’s trying her best to understand
A phone call in the middle of the night
Transfer truck ran a stop light
Doctor comes in and she says “Is he going to be alright”?
Then he says the words no mother ever wants to hear
As she stands there in frozen in fear
He says we’ve done all we can it’s up to him now all we can do is wait
The doctor takes her to be by his side
When she sees him the shock is too hard to hide
Alone in his room she drops to her knees
And says “Dear God please,
Please don’t take him; I raised him the way you wanted
And he turned out great
Can’t you see I’m in such an awful a state?
Please don’t take him
Please can’t you just wait?”

She drives him to the airport and they find his gate
Thank goodness his flight will be leaving late
Been in love since they were kids
Joined the Air Force just like his father did
Country under attack
Now he’s off to Iraq
He looks into her tear filled eyes
The words he says comes as no surprise
He says you know I love you and I’ll be back
And we’ll get married when I come home from Iraq
I’m sorry this world is in such a state
I’m sorry to have to ask but will you please just wait
She wiped her eyes and watched him as he headed down the gate
He turned back in time to hear her say
“Of course you know that I will wait.”

Just down the hall of the nursing home
He sits by her bed all alone
He holds her weak and withered hand
Tryin’ to face the truth, tryin’ to understand
Why she’s had to suffer for so long
Thinkin’ to her his heart will always belong
He doesn’t know how much more he can take
Though he knows that losing her his heart and spirit will break
So he hits his knees and says “Dear God please
Please just take her home she’s suffered for too long
Though you know I’ll be in such an awful state
When she’s sittin’ outside your gate
Please tell her not to wait
Tell her to come on in
Your pain and suffering are forever at an end
It’s time for forever to begin
Please tell her not to wait”

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

  I did a lot of thinking about Shania's birthday.   I mean what do you get the woman who has everything or can afford to get herself anything she wants. It’s a tough one.  After a lot of soul searching all I could come up with is this.  She writes such beautiful songs for us filled with such emotion and sentiment that I figured maybe someone should write something especially for her for a change so I did.  What better gift than a true heartfelt sentiment or emotion. A gift that will hopefully make her feel special on this truly special day.   Happy Birthday.  I hope it is truly everything she wants it to be and more.  Here is my gift especially written for her.  I hope you like it.  Enjoy!!

I Would Go That Far

 

My head is telling me I should take this chance and just walk away

But my heart is telling me that I should take a chance and stay

There's a battle goin' on

Too afraid to risk my heart but I don't want to be alone

I dial your number hopin' you'll forgive me and pick up the phone

Am I gettin' through or has your heart turned to stone

Tryin' so hard to fight this fear

I really wish that you could hear

All the things my heart should have said

I should have let my heart rule my head

And I know it's hard for you to understand why I have all these fears

But I've been hiding my heart for so many years

It's been wounded so many times, it just needed time to heal

But I'm just so afraid to tell you how I feel

If you would just listen you would hear my heart say

Without your love I just can't go another day

I would swim across every ocean so deep

And I'll be there every night to kiss you before you go to sleep

I would crawl across the desert through the burning sand

All this I would do just for the touch of your hand

I would fly up to heaven on the wings of an angel and bring you back a star

Yes that's how much I love you, I would go that far

And though my head is telling me I should take this chance and walk away

I wish you could hear my heart 'cause these are the words that it would say

I would swim across every ocean so deep

And I'll be there every night to kiss you before you go to sleep

I would crawl across the desert through the burning sand

All this I would do just for the touch of your hand

I would fly up to heaven on the wings of an angel and bring you back a star

Yes that's how much I love you, I would go that far

Yes I would fly up to heaven on the wings of an angel and bring you back a star

Yes that's how much I love you, I would go that far

 

Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Hi, Wrote this one earlier today!! Enjoy!!
August 28, 2009

Driving Me Insane

Just can’t get you off my mind
There’s no peace for my heart to find
You’re so close yet so far away
Wishin’ I could find the right words to say
I just can’t face another day
Reach out to let you know just how I feel
Always a dream and never real
Tired of always wakin’ up alone
But in my heart and mind you’re never gone
My thoughts of you are driving me insane
But any attempt to stop loving you is so in vain
‘Cause this love in my heart will forever remain
Just can’t stop thinkin’ about you
My soul feels incomplete; I don’t know what to do
Tell me how can this love survive
When you don’t even know that I’m alive
I wanna be right there by your side
To hold you when you need a place to hide
I’m the one you need to trust, in me you know you can confide
Tell me how can I bridge this distance
Just hold on and don’t take the path of least resistance
Just wait and see what the future has in store
Wait for me and you won’t be alone anymore
Once we’re together it can be better than anything before
You know I just can’t get you off my mind
And there’s no peace for this heart to find
I reach out to let you know just how I feel
Always a dream and never real
And these sweet thoughts of you are driving me insane
Any attempt to stop loving you is in vain
Can’t stop this love, ‘cause in my heart it will forever remain
I wish that I could jump on a plane
Catch a bus or hop a train
‘Cause in my soul by your side is where I need to be
In my dreams it’s a reality
Tired of wakin’ up all alone
In my heart and mind you’re never gone
My thoughts of you are driving me insane
But any attempt to stop loving you is so in vain
‘Cause this love in my heart will forever remain
Seems I’m always reachin’ out to let you know how I feel
But it’s always a dream and never real
By your side is where I need to be
Wishin’ my dreams were reality
My thoughts of you are driving me insane
But any attempt to stop loving you is so in vain
Reachin’ out to let you know how I feel
And always wishin’ these dreams were real

Driving Me Insane was written after thinking about all the rumors about Shania and Fredric and how she might be engaged or even married and then the new website with the countdown to her birthday and it’s all just driving some of us fans so crazy so I wrote this. It’s about being so far away from someone yet feeling so close and connected but not being able to do anything about it.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi , Here's another one to read.   Enjoy!!

Love You All Around This World
 

Let me take you to Spain
We’ll go dancin’ in the rain
Let’s go to Paris
I’ll kiss you out on the terrace
What a beautiful sight
I’ll be holding you tight
There in the city of lights
Let’s go to Rome
Doesn’t matter where we are, with you my heart’s found a home
I’ll love you all around this world
Come on let’s give it a whirl
I’m so in love with you girl
I wanna love you all around this world
Let’s go to Florida and jump from a plane
Let them call us insane
From the top of a mountain to the bottom of the sea
Right by your side is where I want to be
Alone in Dubai
I want to see the moon and the stars in your eyes
Let’s go to Egypt We can ride horses and ATV’s
It doesn’t matter as long as you’re with me
In a desert full of sand
I’ll be holding your hand
Let’s fly to London and see the Queen
I’ll show you love like you’ve never seen
We can dance with dolphins, ride camels through the sand, ride horses
On every beach
No place is too far as long as you are within my reach
High in the mountains all covered in snow
I’ll follow you wherever you go
I’ll love you all around this world
Come on let’s give it a whirl
I’m so in love with you girl
Let me take you to Spain
We’ll go dancin’ in the rain
Let’s go to Rome
Doesn’t matter where we are, with you my heart’s found a home
I’ll love you all around this world
Come on let’s give it a whirl
I’ll promise I’ll love you all around this world

Love You All Around This World was written after watching the video gift that Shania gave us. I was thinking about how Fredric must be feeling. I was also thinking of all the incredible adventures they have shared with each other.  I was thinking about the two of them loving each other in all these different places.

 Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Hi,   Wrote Mamma’s Little Gypsy after reading Shania's letter and thinking about how much her mom was an influence on who she is and how special her support was to her.
Hope you like it.  Enjoy!!

 
   
Mamma’s Little Gypsy
 

Ever since the day she was born
She was always restless and a little torn
Dreamin’ of the day she could leave that town
No one was gonna stop her, nothin’ could bring her down
Hangin’ her dreams on the words of a song
In her mind it wouldn’t take that long
Late nights singin’ in the bars
Long road trips with just Mamma in the backseat of the car
Always wishin’ on a shooting star
Hopin’ her dreams would take her that far
Faraway places with so much to do
Worked so hard to make her dreams come true
A lot of long cold nights without any heat
Woke up to too many days without enough to eat
Times like that make dreams die hard and fast
But she found the courage to keep hers alive and make it last
And she’s Mamma’s little gypsy runnin’ wild and free
Mamma’s little gypsy with the world to see
Mamma’s little gypsy always on the run
Mamma’s little gypsy always searchin’ for the special one
Mamma’s little gypsy always lookin’ for fun
Yeah she’s Mamma’s little gypsy singin’ oh so sweet
Mamma’s little gypsy with the world at her feet
She’s Mamma’s little gypsy runnin’ wild and free
Mamma’s little gypsy with the world to see
Mamma’s little gypsy always knew this is how it would be
Mamma‘s little gypsy her dreams came true
Mamma’s little gypsy now the world loves you
Mamma’s little gypsy sittin’ on the beach in a faraway place
She’s got a great big smile on her face
Thinkin’ back oh so far
When she was dreamin’ and wishin’ on a star
And she was still Mamma’s little gypsy
Singing’ in the backseat with just her mamma in the car
She’s Mamma’s little gypsy singin’ oh so sweet
Mamma’s little gypsy with the world at her feet
Mamma’s little gypsy runnin’ wild and free
Mamma’s little gypsy always knew this is how it would be
She’s Mamma’s little gypsy singin’ oh so sweet
Mamma’s little gypsy’s got the world at her feet
Mamma’s little gypsy’s dreams came true
Mamma’s little gypsy now the world loves you
But in your heart you’ll always be
Mamma’s sweet little gypsy runnin’ wild and free
Mamma’s little gypsy’s got a hold on me
Hear you singin’ on the radio
See you dancing in your video
Another tour and around the world you go
Mamma’s little gypsy singin’ oh so sweet
Mamma’s little gypsy got the world fallin’ at your feet
Mamma’s little gypsy runnin’ wild and free
Mamma’s little gypsy’s got a hold on me
Mamma’s little gypsy always knew this is how it would be
Mamma’s little gypsy runnin’ wild and free

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

 Hi, Another one to read while we to through Shania withdrawals yet again.     

She Took Her Heartache On Vacation was written after reading a post by someone on a message board.  He was responding to my post and he mentioned Shania  having a good time and vacationing her heartache away.  It stuck in my brain and I wrote this. I hope you like it.  Enjoy!!  Thanks to Barebackwarrior and Shania for the inspiration for this one.
                                                              September 9, 2009

 

       She Took Her Heartache On Vacation 

She took her heartache on vacation
Eight different countries and 5 different nations
She took it to see all the wonderous and beautiful sights
Tryin’ to leave behind all the lonely tear filled nights
She took it to the ancient ruins of Rome
And saw the love carved in each and every stone
She romance her way through the city of lights
With someone new to hold her tight
Hopin’ he couldn’t tell that somethin’ just wasn’t right
The view from the palm in Dubai
Mesmerized and left a tear in her eye
And her poor heart let out a wistful sigh
A picnic for two all alone in the snow
She was determined not to let it show
And riding along the Red Sea
Is just not where she wanted to be
And way down in Spain
The rain hid her tears of pain
And she took her heartache on vacation
Eight different countries and 5 different nations
She took it to see all the wonderous and beautiful sights
Tryin’ to leave behind all the lonely tear filled nights
And down in Barcelona dancin’ with the dolphins in the sun
She convinced herself she’d finally found the one
But in the back of her mind
The and doubt is still there she’ll find
Walkin’ in Lebanon along the bullet riddled streets of a war zone
She sighs to herself as she thinks about how she’s survivin’ through her own
And this vacation is just a way to put it all on pause
She knows that she was fightin’ for a lost cause
They were both so unhappy in the end
And they’re no longer lovers and they just can’t be friends
And she took her heartache on vacation
 Eight different countries and 5 different nations
She took it to see all the wonderous and beautiful sights
Tryin’ to leave behind all the lonely tear filled nights
In Vienna in a castle with its towers so tall
She thought she heard his voice echoing down the halls
She fought back the tears and didn’t let them fall
She wondered if it was worth it at all
She took her heartache on vacation
Hoping to leave it in some exotic, unknown destination
She’s in such a restless and unsettled situation
She took her heartache on vacation
In London on a bicycle trip for two
She still wondered how she would get through
She was really feelin’ blue
She took her heartache on vacation
Hoping to leave it in some exotic, unknown destination
She took her heartache on vacation
In New York among the toys
It was so hard to find the joy
Did her best to hide it all from her little boy
She took her heartache on vacation
Eight different countries and 5 different nations
She took it to see all the wonderous and beautiful sights
Tryin’ to leave behind all the lonely tear filled nights
She took her heartache on vacation
Hoping to leave it in some exotic, unknown destination
She took her heartache on vacation

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,  Wrote this one while listening to Home Ain't Where His Heart is Anymore.  There was so much pain in this song.  So many regrets and broken dreams...also there was a wish to go back to the way things were before the love died.
Enjoy!!

      Come Tomorrow

She closes her eyes and wonders why
After a year she still feels the need to cry
Alone in the dark she can hide her broken heart
And no one is there to see her let herself just fall apart
And she knows she’ll wake up tomorrow
Still feelin’ all the pain and sorrow
And hope that no one will be able to see
That she still wishes things were still the way they used to be
Before he gave his heart and soul to someone else
Now she knows she has to figure it all out for herself
She knows she’ll never be able to understand just why
He had to let his love for her just die
And she knows in her heart she’ll never be able to say goodbye
To a love she thought she’d have for the rest of her life
She thought she’d always be his wife
She just didn’t know
That one day she’d have to let him go
And she prays that the next time she sees him that it doesn’t show
The fact that her will never say goodbye and let his memory go
And every night she keeps telling herself that come tomorrow, by the early morning light
She won’t wish that he was there to hold her tight
And come tomorrow
She won’t still feel all the pain and sorrow
Like it just happened yesterday
Come tomorrow she won’t still wish to hear him say
That he still loves her with all his heart and soul
And that she’s still the only one who makes him whole
And come tomorrow another sleepless night will take its toll
And she knows that come tomorrow things will still be the same
She’ll still have to fight back the tears at the mention of his name
And wit every breath that she takes
She’ll still feel her heart as it breaks
As she remembers all of his lies and mistakes
And every night she keeps telling herself that come tomorrow, by the early morning light
She won’t wish that he was there to hold her tight
And come tomorrow
She won’t still feel all the pain and sorrow
Like it just happened yesterday
Come tomorrow she won’t still wish to hear him say
That he still loves her with all his heart and soul
And that she’s still the only one who makes him whole
And through all the heartbreak and sorrow
She knows she’ll still have to fight the same battle again come tomorrow

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi here's another one to read.  Enjoy!!!    

      Barely Hangin’ By A Thread

 

I saw her just the other day

I didn’t know exactly what to say

She was drinkin’ hot chocolate and eatin’ French fries

The hurt still looked so fresh in her eyes

She was alone watchin’ the people come and go

She was hopin’ that it didn’t show

She was tryin’ so hard to hide it from me

Hopin’ that I couldn’t see

She’s barely hangin’ by a thread

She can’t forget the things he did and said

They keep runnin’ through her head

And though there’s someone new sleepin’ in her bed

Inside she still feels like she’s dead

She’s barely hangin’ by a thread

And her pain runs deeper thant the deepest ocean

But for so long she’s just been going through the motions

She wants so bad for someone to see

That this is not how she’s supposed to be

She wants to do more than just survive

Waiting for the one with the love to make her soul come alive

She’s barely hangin’ by a thread

She can’t forget the things he did and said

And though there’s someone new sleepin’ in her bed

Inside she still feels like she’s dead

She’s barely hangin’ by a thread

And she’s sittin’ all alone and watchin’ the people come andgo

Hopin’ that no one else will know

That she’s havin’ trouble lettin’ him go

And although she’s sleepin’ with somebody new

She’s hopin’ and prayin’ he doesn’t see it too

And her heart is full of dread

‘Cause she knows she’s still just barely hangin’ by a thread

She just can’t forget the things he did and said

They just keep runnin’ through her head

And though there’s someone new sleepin’ in her bed

Inside she still feels like she’s dead

And she’s still barely hangin’ by a thread

And she’s tryin’ so hard to force herself to feel

A lot more fake than real

For by now her emotions are so easy to hide and so hard to reveal

And her heart is full of dread

‘Cause she knows she’s still just barely hangin’ by a thread

She just can’t forget the things he did and said

They just keep runnin’ through her head

And though there’s someone new sleepin’ in her bed

Inside she still feels like she’s dead

And she’s still barely hangin’ by a thread

 

Barely Hangin’ By a Thread was written after thinking about how hard it must be to let  go of so many emotions and memories and move on after so many years together.  I am sure at times Shania felt she was barely hangin’ by a thread emotionally.

 

 Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Here is another one that was inspired by a very special little friend.  I was thinking about how they are only little for a little while and how sometimes we wish we could keep them little forever and also about how sometimes in relatonships with others we know they will only be a part of our lives for a short time but we wish that it could be forever.   Enjoy!!

                                                                                        September 27, 2009

    Keep You For A Little While 

Can I keep you for a little while
I can’t resist your sweet and gentle smile
I know I should just walk away
I should listen to all the warnings they say
But I can’t stop the way I feel
My heart is not made of steel
And though you’re not the first
I know you’ll hurt the worst
It’s too late now we’ve both gone past the point of no return
It’s a heart breaking lesson that I never learn
And even though I know I’ll only keep you for a little while
I know I’ll keep you forever in my heart and I’ll always remember your smile
Your love wasn’t something that I was lookin’ to find
Now all I want to do is try to make you mine
Even if it is only to keep you for a little while
‘Cause all I want to do is hold you in my arms and see your sweet smile
And I don’t know what I’m gonna do
When I have to let you go
It’s coming in the end I know
You’ll just walk away
And I’ll still need you to stay
And there will be nothin’ I can do or say
And although you’re not the first
I know that losin’ you will hurt the worst
And how can I be happy to just keep you for a little while
When I’ve come to need your love and your sweet and gentle smile
And in my heart I know that it’s not fair
I really wish I didn’t care
But I see the best of me in your eyes
And I know that I’m just tellin’ myself a bunch of lies
I’m in a state of pure denial
‘Cause I don’t want to that I can only keep you for a little while
It’s too hard to go just one day without your love and your sweet smile
And I know I’m in a serious state of denial
‘Cause I want you forever not just to keep you for a little while
Yeah I want to keep you forever, not just for a little while

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

 Hi here's another one for you to read. Enoy!!

Desert Sand

I wanna see you dancing across the desert sands
I wanna feel the warmth of your body right here in my hands
As we listen to the chitarra play
We’ll watch the palm trees sway
I’ll hold you in my arms as we dance across the sand
We don’t need music or even a band
Listen as I whisper the words to our song in your ear
Just close your eyes and let the rest of the world disappear
As the palm trees sway in the breeze
I can feel your love and it makes me weak in the knees
And as your body melts in into mine
We just lose all track of time
And as the sun gives way to the moon
I’m so intoxicated by the scent of your perfume
I’ve fallen so deep in love
Even with you right in my arms you’re still not close enough
With the stars twinkling in your eyes
There’s no way for us to disguise
The love that we feel
What we’ve found is so real
As I hold you in my arms so tight
This is a most special night
Though the words don’t come out right
I know you will understand
As we dance together across the desert sand
There are no words to say
You’re the only one who makes me feel this way
So just take my hand
We’ll dance across the desert sand
And as your body melts into mine
We’ll just lose all track of time
And I know that you will understand
As we dance across the desert sand

Desert Sand was inspired by the pictures of Shania and Fredric in Egypt.  I was also thinking about the video The Woman in Me since it had a Egyptian theme. I was thinking about how it would feel to be in love and be in Egypt.

Hi,  here is another one from the collection for you to read.  Enjoy!!!

        Keep Me From Lovin’ You 

I can’t leap tall buildings in a single bound
You know I get weak just when you come around
These hands can’t bend pure steel
All I know for sure is how you make me feel
Just like Superman has his kryptonite
My heart just can’t put up a fight
To keep me from lovin’ you
And you know I can’t change a mighty river’s course
But your love is truly an unseen force
And I just can’t seem to get away
No matter what I do or say
And just like Superman has his kryptonite
My heart just can’t put up a fight
To keep me from lovin’ you
And I know I’m not stronger than a speeding train
And I know all of my efforts are in vain
‘Cause lovin’ you could easily drive me insane
And all I wanna do is sit around and listen to Shania Twain
And there’s nothing anyone can say or do
To keep me from lovin’ you
I can’t see through concrete walls
But every time I see you my heart just falls
And maybe I can’t fly through the sky at the speed of light
But these arms can hold you tight
And just like Superman has his kryptonite
My heart just can’t put up a fight
To keep me from lovin’ you
And I know I’m not stronger than a speeding train
And I know all of my efforts are in vain
‘Cause lovin’ you could easily drive me insane
And all I wanna do is sit around and listen to Shania Twain
But there’s nothin’ that I can do
‘Cause my heart just can’t keep from lovin’ you

Keep Me From Lovin’ You was written after thinking about how Mutt must have been Superman and have a heart made of steel to walk away from his family the way he did.It would be hard to walk away and give up on something that lasted for almost 15 years.  I wouldn’t have done it without fighting for it and giving it another try. 

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Yet another while we wait for more news.  Enjoy!!!

  She's Just Another Pretty Lie 

Every head turns every time that she walks in
As I watch I hold my breath as I think "Oh no here she goes again"
She's done her hair, her makeup and her tan
And by the look on their face every guy in this place
Thinks he has what it takes to be her man
But there are so many things that they don't really know
So many things that from the outside just don't ever show
She used to married and for so many years it was great
But now her once pretty heart is full of hurt and hate
It hasn't been long enough she really needs to wait
The pain is too fresh and she's too numb to feel
She needs to give her poor heart more time to heal
But she just needs someone to help her make it through the night
'Cause she's still missin' his arms holdin' her so tight
They all think that they can be the one to help her let him go
The sad thing is they just don't know
She's got that hurtin' look in her eye
And tonight she's just another pretty lie
She'll make him think that he's the one who's gonna change her world
She'll let him believe that she's his girl
But when the night is through
He'll just be one more that she told her pretty lie to
She's just another pretty lie
Tonight she'll go home alone and cry
And she just can't understand why
He had to break her heart and let their love die
So he's the reason she's just another pretty lie
He's the reason she's still afraid to give love a try
Don't get me wrong, she'll take your breath away
With the way she looks and the pretty lies she'll say
With all her heart she'll make you believe every word
She's gotten good at tellin' the prettiest lies you've ever heard
So take this advice from someone who knows
In her heart she'll never let him go
And if you look deep into her eyes
You will realize
She just full of pretty lies
You can still see the hurt and anger in her eyes
She's learned from the best how to tell those pretty lies
Yeah she's just another pretty lie
Tonight she'll go home alone and cry
She's still tryin' to understand just why
He had to break her heart and let their love die
So he's the reason she's just another pretty lie
He's the reason she won't give love another try
And in her heart she always wonder why
He had to be the one to turn her into just another pretty lie 

She’s Just Another Pretty Lie was written after listening to She's Not Just A Pretty Face.  And after reading about Shania being in Dubai with Fredric and having on minimal makeup and thinking about how women hide what they really look like with makeup. Amazing how people can pretend or appear to be happy on the outside while they are really dying on the inside.  Got me to thinking and I wrote this one. 

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Another one to read!!  Boredom has set in!!!  Enjoy!!

          I Always Come Back To Loving You 

Every time I try to make a new start
I just can’t stop my heart
My head knows what I should do
But I always come back to loving you
I wish that I could just walk away
I feel so strong by the light of day
But in the night when your memory appears
I find myself wishing you were here
My heart knows it needs your love to get me through
And I always come back to loving you
Though I try so hard to move on and find someone new
I know this is truly a hopeless case
Because every time I close my eyes I see your face
And I wish that there was more that I could do
But I always come back to loving you
I want a new start
But my head just can’t convince my heart
My head knows exactly what I should do
But I always come back to loving you
There’s nothing I can do
I’ll always come back to loving you

Warmest regards as always,Tonto 

   I Always Come Back to Loving You was written as I was driving my truck and asking myself why I always come back to being a fan of Shania's.  Why do I care so much about someone who has not clue that I exist and how in my mind I wanted to walk away from being so devoted and loyal to her but that every time I have ever tried I always came back to loving her music.

Still waiting for a new letter or blog.  Still bored.  Also worried about a friend.
Enjoy!!!

You Can’t Run From Love 

How many days
How many miles
And many ways
Do you need between us before you realize
You can’t run from love
How many minutes that turn into hours
How many hearts and how many flowers
Do you need between us before you realize
You can’t run from love
How many lonely nights
How many senseless fights
Have to come between us
Before you realize
You can’t from love
How many mountains and how many oceans
How many thoughts and how many notions
Have to come between us
Before you realize
You can’t run from love
How many times do you have to try and say goodbye
And how many tears do we both have to cry
Before you realize
You can’t run from love
No you can’t run and you can’t hide
Sooner or later it’ll get you deep down inside
Sooner or later you can’t get enough
You just can’t run from love
How many sad songs
And how many I’m right and your wrongs
Have to come between us
Before you realize
You can’t run from love
No you can’t run and you can’t hide
Sooner or later it’ll get you deep down inside
Sooner or later you can’t get enough
You just can’t run from love
No you can’t run from love
 

You Can’t Run From Love was written after discussing in e-mails with another fan about how maybe Shania and Fredric had always loved each other and just never acted on it out of respect for their marriages and then after the divorce she knew that they couldn’t just be together as people would think that her relationship with Fredric was what destroyed her marriage so she tried to walk away from it but couldn’t do it.  Her heart was already set on him.

 Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

  Hi,
I wrote this one a while back when the news of Shania dating Fredric first broke.  The reason I wrote was that I was thinking that most divorced people go through several relationships after their divorce before they find another one to last and that they are willing to risk taking a chance on.  I guess it is lucky for Shania that she seems to have possibly skipped this step.     Enjoy!!

   
Don’t Ask Her To Stay

 

Don’t’ ask her to stay
Just let her walk away
Don’t let it happen this way
Just let her go
There’s just so much you don’t know
So don’t let it start
You can’t trust her with your heart
So don’t ask her to say
From the outside she looks just fine
And you’re thinking “I could make her mine”
But what you don’t know
Is that when he let her go
He kept her heart
And broke it all apart
And I know it ain’t right
But she’ll go home with you tonight
But don’t ask her to stay
Just let her walk away
Don’t let it happen this way
Just let her go
There’s so much you don’t know
So don’t let it start
You can’t trust her with your heart
So don’t ask her to stay
Just let her walk away
No she won’t let you in
She’ll never trust anyone with her heart again
No she won’t mean to but she’ll look you in the eyes
And tell you a bunch of pretty lies
As she tries so hard to make herself believe that it’s for real
As she tries to force herself to show emotions that she just doesn’t feel
And from the outside you can’t tell
She’s just another pretty empty shell
And you can’t tell it on her face
But where her heart used to be there’s just an empty space
I know she’s pretty and she’s caught your eye
But you’d be better off to let her walk on by
But if you just can’t resist the temptation
And you find yourself in an awkward situation
Don’t ask her to stay
Just let her walk away
No she won’t let you in
She’ll never trust anyone with her heart again
She’ll look you in the eye
And tell you some sweet lie
She knows all the right words to say
Just let her walk away
Don’t let it start
You can never trust her with your heart
Let her walk away
Don’t ask her to stay

 

Don’t Ask Her To Stay was written after thinking about how I still believe that Shania is not over what has happened to her and that Fredric is really just a rebound relationship and helping you to deal with the situation.  I think she may be afraid to be alone.

 

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi just another one to read while we wait for a new letter from Shania.  I hope you like it.  Enjoy!

         
Would Have Loved You Anyway
 

Even if I had known how it all would turn out
I would have loved you anyway without a doubt
Would have been like tryin’ to stop a runaway train
Would have loved you anyway though everything I did was in vain
Would have loved you anyway couldn’t stop my heart
Would have loved you anyway even if I’d known it would all fall apart
Would have been like tryin’ to hold back the tide
I couldn’t have hid the way I felt deep inside
I would’ve loved you anyway
Though I knew you wouldn’t stay
Though I knew all the angry words we would say
Would’ve been like tryin’ to stop a hurricane
Though losing you is driving me insane
I would’ve loved you anyway
Would’ve been like tryin’ to stop the night from turnin’ into day
Would’ve been like tryin’ to stop a tidal wave
Now it’s your kisses that I crave
I would’ve loved you anyway
Even if I knew that you wouldn’t stay
I would’ve loved you anyway though I knew how it all would turn out
I would’ve loved you anyway without a doubt
I would’ve loved you anyway

      Would Have Loved You Anyway was written as I thought about how much you and Mutt had accomplished together as a team and how I know you would feel this way as Eja was the best result of this team and marriage. 

Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Thanks glad you like them.  I just do it for the fun of it and as a way of expressing myself.  Purely self indulgent on my part but hated seeing them piled in a drawer where no one can enjoy them.  I like to make people feel things using words.  Hopefully they can help people cope with things they have going on that may be similiar.  Thanks again for the comment.   It's nice to hear you think they are good enough.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

 Lots of rain today.  Glad to hear from Shania.  Hated to hear that she still cries from the pain he left her with.  Enjoy!!!   


 
Don’t Blame Her
 

Take that burden from her shoulders
She just needs someone to hold her
It’s all there in her eyes
And she feels it with every tear that she cries
Don’t blame her when she seems sad and lonely
Because he broke his promise to keep her as his one and only
She loved him so much she couldn’t tell where she ended and where he began
She just knew in her heart that he would always and forever want to be her man
Until one day she caught him without his wedding band
No he’s left her all alone and she feels her spirit is broken
By the things he did and the harsh words that he’s spoken
And she cries herself to sleep every night and he won’t even know
That deep in her heart she’ll never let him go
And the pain and tears will never show
So don’t blame her because she still cries herself to sleep
Dreaming of the promises she knows he’ll never keep
So take the burden from her shoulders
She just needs someone to hold her
To give her a safe place to hide
While she lets her heart try to heal deep inside
Don’t blame her because she let him play her for a fool
She never dreamed that he could be so cruel
So take the burden from her shoulders
She just needs someone to hold her
While she lets her broken spirit start to mend
Someone to let her cry as she wonders why it all had to end
After all she’s just a woman made of flesh and bone
A woman who fell in love with a man whose heart turned to stone
And now she’s the one left to cry herself to sleep
Dreaming of the promises he’ll never keep
And she’ll always carry this pain that he’ll never know
As deep in her heart she knows she’ll never let him go
And she’ll always carry this pain that he’ll never know
And in her eyes you can see her sorrow
As she lies to herself saying maybe tomorrow
Someone will take the burden from her shoulders
And just be the one to hold her
And give her a safe place to hide
While she lets her heart heal deep inside
So don’t blame her when she’s sad and lonely
Because he couldn’t forever be her one and only

 

Dont’t Blame Her was written after listening to Wildflower and thinking about how much pain came through in the letter you wrote and how much you are still really hurting though you are reluctant to give in to the pain and admit that you are still very much hurting.

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi Here's another Shania inspired one to read.  Enjoy!!!

Another Night

Just the other day I was walking down the street
And I thought I saw you go into our old favorite place
I couldn’t help it but a smile crept upon my face
As I opened the door and I walked in
Hopin’ to see your pretty face again
I sat down at our old table to wait
I was hopin’ you’d see me and ask how I was so I could lie and say
I was doin’ great
It took a while for me to realize
She wasn’t you but she had your hair and your eyes
So I got up to leave
Still tryin’ to convince myself to believe
That like me you were still not over me
‘Cause I just can’t face another night
Without your arms to hold me tight
And I just can’t face another day
Until I hear you say
That you still love me to
‘Cause I just can’t face another day not knowing what I’m gonna do
Or how I’m gonna face another long lonely night without loving you
Oh why can’t you see
I just can’t face another night without you lovin’ me
Oh why does this have to be
No matter how hard I try I just can’t break free
Of your sweet lovin’ memory
At night I see you in my dreams and I wake up to no you
And I wonder how I’ll get through
Another day not lovin’ you
‘Cause I just can’t face another night
Without your arms to hold me tight
Oh why can’t I move on and let it be
Oh why can’t I just break free
How can I face another night without you lovin’ me
Oh why can’t I break free
Of your sweet, lovin’ memory
How can I face another night without you lovin’ me


Another Night was written after listening to Leavin’ is the Only Way Out.  “Don’t wanna wake up to one more night that won’t end.” It kept repeating in my mind.  Started thinking about Shania having to face another sleepless night without the one you love and longing for them to still be there. You rolling over to touch him and only finding an empty space.  Thinking about how long and endless the night would seem.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Saw a great movie this weekend.  The Blind Side starring Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw.  This a must see movie.  Awesome and soul inspiring!!! Best I've seen in a long time.  Sandra Bullock was awesome.  She deserves every Oscar she will get for this one.  It touched me so much that I wrote this one.  Lots of things combined to inspire me to write it.

To See Without Your Sight 

In black and white
To see without your sight
To make a choice to what’s right
To take a chance to reach out with a helping hand
To know the price of making a stand
To make a change and start brand new
To flip the switch and change your point of view
To rip apart the world you know
To look inside your heart and not be afraid to let it show
To find directions to a place you’ve never been
To open up your heart and let love come walkin’ in
To look beyond an age, to look past the color of my skin
To look so close you only see the beauty hidden deep within
To see more than just a part, to see the whole
To touch a heart, to reach a soul
To search until you find a love that’s worth fighting for
To know deep inside your heart that there’s got to be something more
To have faith in the future not knowing what’s in store
To see with blind eyes past the number of my years
To see with your heart the reason for someone’s tears
To see with blind eyes the beauty that lies deep within
To open up your heart and let this special love come crashin’ in
To see in someone else’s eyes the person that you wish you could be
To see with blind eyes that you are a part of me
To see with blind eyes all the things that before you couldn’t see
In black and white
To see without your sight
To make a choice to do what’s right
To see with blind eyes that hate is a disease
To know in your heart when it’s time to drop down on your knees
To have the courage to say “Father forgive me please
For at times I let myself be deceived
I wavered in my faith and I forgot how to believe
And how to see with blind eyes past the color of another’s skin
And I forgot how to see the beauty deep within
And I forgot how to open the door to my heart and let your love come crashin’ in
If only I could remember how to see with blind eyes the beauty that comes from deep within
It’s all there in black and white
To see without my sight
It’s not too late to begin
Just open up the door and let your love come crashin’ in
Then you will see the beauty deep within
Just open up the door and let your love come crashin’ in

To See Without Your Sight was written after listening to Black Eyes, Blue Tears and also seeing the movie “Blind side” and thinking about looking past what we see on the outside and finding the beauty of a person’s soul.  I was also thinking about a special little friend.   There was a relationship in the movie between Michael and a little boy S.J. that was very special and it reminded me of the relationship that I have with my very special little friend. Thanks to Reagan and the movie and Shania’s song for inspiring this one.

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Thanks !! Glad you like my writing.  Sandra is so talented and so versatile.  She can play any role and does an excellent job.  I haven't seen her in a bad film yet.  This film will be the one to really get her even more recognition as the very talented woman she is.  She really got a chance to show off her skills.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

  Hi just thought I'd post something to read during this slow Shania time.  
Enjoy!!


           
A Day Without Your Smile
 

A day without your smile is like a year without the sun
And it feels like my whole world is coming undone
And I just can’t seem to love anyone
And when a day without you is here
I just can’t hold back my fear
All I need is to have you near
Only you know the words I need to hear
When you’re not around I miss all the sweet little things you say and do
Without you here I feel so blue
And a day without your smile is like a day without the sun
And I feel like my whole world is coming undone
And no one else can bring me comfort you’re the only one
And I know I need you like the flowers need the sun
And when we’re apart
I get this feelin’ deep inside my heart
And my heart starts breakin’
And my soul starts achin’
And the pain is more than I can take
And these feelings for you are somethin’ I just can’t fake
I know that I should never let my feelings show
But please just promise me that you’ll never go
And your smile is just like gettin’ a great big hug
And the sound of your laughter affects me like some kind of crazy drug
A day without your smile is like a year without the sun
And it feels like my whole world is coming undone
And I just can’t seem to love anyone
And I need your sweet smile like the flowers need the rain
Without you I know that I would go insane
And a day without your smile is like a year without the sun
And it feels like my whole world is coming undone
A day without your smile is like a year without the sun 

A Day Without Your Smile was written after listening to Whatever You do Don’t.  I was thinking about how it feels when you are first falling in love and how you want to be around that person all the time and going a day without them seems like an eternity.  Maybe you were feeling this way about Fredric when you first realized you both wanted more than friendship. 

 Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Hi Something new to read while we wait for more news.  Enjoy!!


           
Countin’ Every Little Heart Beat
 

You know I’ve been around this old world a time or two
And I’ve never met anyone who makes me feel the way you do
You got me countin’ every little heart beat
‘Till I taste your kisses so sweet
You got me keepin’ track of every breath that I take
‘Till I can have some of that sweet love we make
You got me runnin’ in circles spinin’ round and round
‘Cause baby your love is the best thing I’ve ever found
Feels like I’m floatin’ on air, my feet never touch the ground
Just one look from you is all need; you don’t have to make a sound
You got me countin’ every little heart beat
‘Till I taste your kisses so sweet
You got me keepin’ track of every breath that I take
‘Till I can have some of that sweet love we make
You got me runnin’ in circles spinin’ round and round
‘Cause baby your love is the best thing I’ve ever found
Feels like I’m floatin’ on air, my feet never touch the ground
Just one look from you is all need; you don’t have to make a sound
All I know is that I just can’t make it not one day
Without you makin’ me feel this way
So many lonely nights
Thinkin’ I was never gonna get it right
Now that I found you I can’t let you out of my sight
Baby even before we’re apart
I can feel the symptoms start
 You got me countin’ every little heart beat
‘Till I taste your kisses so sweet
You got me keepin’ track of every breath that I take
‘Till I can have some of that sweet love we make
You got me runnin’ in circles spinin’ round and round
‘Cause baby your love is the best thing I’ve ever found
And when we’re all alone at night
And I’m holdin’ you in my arms so tight
I can feel every little heartbeat
I can taste your kisses so sweet
And I can feel every breath you take
And I can’t live without the sweet love we make
All I know is that I just can’t make it not one day
Without you makin’ me feel this way
You got me countin’ every little heart beat
‘Till I taste your kisses so sweet
You got me keepin’ track of every breath that I take
‘Till I can have some of that sweet love we make
You got me countin’ every little heart beat
‘Till I taste your kisses so sweet

 

Countin’ Every Little Heart Beat was written after listening to Wanna Get to Know You That Good.  The line “I wanna feel your heartbeat stronger and stronger” stuck in my head and I was thinking about how it feels to be that in love with someone and how much you must have loved Mutt to have written this song about your relationship with him.

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi,
 Something else to read in between shopping trips and waiting for news.


             Are You Still Lovin’ Her

 

I wanna remember us the way we were

I wanna think of you without seeing her

Everything happened so fast it’s still just a blur

I can’t help but wonder, are you still lovin’ her

I keep telling myself you’re the one who made the mistake

But that doesn’t help when I feel like I’m the only one going through the heartache

When I close my eyes her face is all I see

So why is it that I still want you here with me

I don’t know how it all went wrong

When I thought we were so strong

How can you still be lovin’ her

Why can’t I wish things back to the way we were

If things happened so fast it’s such a blur

Then when I close my eyes do I still see you lovin’ her

When I look back at our past, was it really all that bad

Why am I the one feel like I’ve been had

And at night I just can’t sleep

Because of this pain that still runs so deep

And I wish that it was all such a blur

That I couldn’t see that you’re still lovin’ her

And sometimes when I think you’ve finally let go of my heart

I see the memories of you and that’s when it starts

I’m wishin’ we could go back to the way we were

Before you started lovin’her

And I remember us the way we were

I wanna think of you without seeing her

Everything happened so fast it’s all just a blur

And I wonder why you were lovin’ her

I wanna remember us the way we were

And I wonder why you were ever lovin’ her

 

Are You Still Lovin’ Her was written after listening to When He Leaves You.  I was thinking about how upset you must be and how conflicted you probably were about wanting to just walk away and wanting everything to be the way it was before it all went wrong.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi Here is another one to read while we wait for the torch run and our chance to see Shania.

 
Don’t Wanna Miss A Day Of Loving You
 

Don’t wanna miss a day of loving you
And you know in your heart that it’s true
Don’t wanna miss a night to hold you tight
I wanna hear you say it doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
We both know it’s just a stupid fight
Please don’t shut me out
I know your heart is hurting and your thoughts are full of doubt
But I know we can work this out
Just close your eyes and you will see
This is no how it’s supposed to be
Don’t let this be the end of you and me
Don’t tell me you want me to go
This is not what you want I know
You know I still feel the same
I’m sorry I caused you so much pain
Just tell me what you want me to do
I’m sorry for what I’ve put you through
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss a day of loving you
And you know in your heart that it’s true
Don’t wanna miss a night of holding you tight
I need to hear you say it doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
We both know it’s just a stupid fight
Please don’t push me away
You know I’ll find the right words to say
Just please say you’ll let me stay
‘Cause I don’t know what I’ll do
If I have to miss a day of loving you
I don’t know how I’ll make it through
If I have to miss just one night of holding you tight
Please give me the chance to make it right
Don’t wanna see the tears in your eyes
Please let me apologize
‘Cause I don’t know what I would do
If I had to miss a day of loving you
In your heart you know that it’s true
Don’t wanna miss a night to hold you tight
I wanna hear you say that it doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
I don’t know what I would do
If I had to miss a day of loving you
No I don’t know what I would do
If I had to miss a day of loving you 

Don’t Wanna Miss A Day Of Loving You was written after listening to Is There Life After Love?

The line “Don’t wanna wake up to one more night that won’t end” stuck in my head and got to thinking about how when people fight and argue that it is just another lost day that they could have spent with their loved one.  Then I thought about how if I had someone to love how I wouldn’t want to miss a day of loving them.

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi,
Something else to read while we wait for the torch run. Enjoy!!



              Don’t Want Goodbye To Come 

Don’t want goodbye to come
Don’t want the tears to flow
Don’t want my heart to know that goodbye is on its way
‘Cause we just grow closer and love each other more everyday
Love is a chance you take
Throw caution to the wind
Will your heart break
When goodbye comes can you handle what happens when it ends
Will we hate each other or can we be friends
But I don’t want goodbye to come
Where are all these feelin’s  comin’ from
Oh how I wish that I could stop the hands of time
So that you could always and forever be mine
I know that goodbye will come to soon
For me you’re the one who hung the stars and the moon
So I don’t want goodbye to ever come
I can see it in your eyes
You don’t want to say goodbye
Take me into your heart
Where we’ll never be apart
And goodbye will never come
Let t always be somethin’ we keep runnin’ from
Don’t let goodbye ever come
Don’t want to hear you say goodbye
Don’t want you to see the tears I’ll cry
Don’t want these feelings to ever die
Just let it be somethin’ we’re always runnin’ from
Don’t want goodbye to ever come

 Don’t Want Goodbye to Come Was written after listening to Don’t by Shania Twain and thinking about how I don’t want to have to say goodbye to my new best friend.  I know this will be the hardest goodbye ever for me.  She has stolen my heart. We laugh and play together all day and she makes work not seem like work.  She is the one person that makes it all worth the effort.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

 Hi,  Something to read for the New Year as some people like to look back on the old one. 

Can You See The Scars

Can you see the scars on heart
Along with the memories it’s all he left her to make a brand new start
And tonight she’ll go home and just let herself fall apart
And she’ll cry a billion tears
More than enough to cover all those years
She just can’t understand how easily he turned their love into lies
And you can see it in her eyes
It all came as a big surprise
When she uncovered all his lies
Now how will she ever learn to trust
As she watches all her dreams crumble and turn to dust
And she’ll never be able to understand why he gave in to the lust
Now she’s the one to pay the price for his mistakes
And she can feel the pain in her heart as it slowly breaks
And a night she lies awake
And wonders how much longer it will take
For the scars to finally heal
Still wishing none of it was real
And for every tear that she’s cried
Another part of her has died deep down inside
And with each and every teardrop
She wonders if the pain will ever stop
She’s in such an awful state
She lies and says she’s doing great
Call it Karma, call it fate
She thought she’d found her true soul mate
As she realizes there’s such fine line between love and hate
Can you see the scars on heart
Along with the memories it’s all he left her to make a brand new start
And tonight she’ll go home and just let herself fall apart
Can you see the scars on heart

Can You See The Scars was written after listening to Nah!  And thinking about how it would be nice if ending a relationship was so easy.  The song is an upbeat way to end a relationship and seems to imply that there are no lasting effects from the relationship.  There are always issues when relationships end whether we realize or whether we are willing to admit it or not.  The end of relationships always causes issues that have to be dealt with later in new relationships.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto
