RE: Lack of Creativity by Shania fans Corner


Hi, Here's another little something to read...from Mutt's point of view??.. Enjoy!!

     From The Bottom Of This Bottle 

He walked into the bar and sat down next to me
The bartender sat a bottle and a glass in front of him and poured a glass so neat
He started drinking shot after shot faster than I’d ever seen
And in no time he was down to the bottom of that bottle of Jim Beam
When he’d finished his very last shot I heard him mutter “I guess I’d better stop”
He looked over at me and said “You know I’ve been sittin’ here thinkin’
While I’ve been here drinkin’”
He looked at his empty bottle and said
 “From the bottom of this bottle things look so much clearer
From the bottom of this bottle I can almost face the man in the mirror
From the bottom of this bottle I don’t have to remember all my lies
And from the bottom of this bottle I can hardly see that look in her eyes
From the bottom of this bottle I don’t have to watch as our love dies
From the bottom of this bottle it doesn’t matter if she hates me anymore
From the bottom of this bottle I didn’t really walk out her door
And from the bottom of this bottle I won’t still need to hold her tight
And from the bottom of this bottle it won’t be so hard to get through another night
Yeah from the bottom of this bottle things look so much clearer
And from the bottom of this bottle I can almost face the man in the mirror
And from the bottom of this bottle my soul don’t ache down to the core
‘Cause from the bottom of this bottle I don’t have to face the truth that she don’t
Love me anymore
Yeah from the bottom of this bottle my soul don’t ache down to the core
From the bottom of this bottle I don’t have to face the truth that she don’t
Love me anymore 

From The Bottom Of This Bottle was written after listening to Is There Life After Love and thinking I know what I would be doing if I was Mutt and I finally figured out how ignorant and selfish and stupid I had been by destroying my family the way he did I’d be drinking my life away.
Personally I don't drink but I would think that losing everything that means anything to you would be a reason to do it.
Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Good poem Tonto, you have great creative skills.
But I think this poem would not apply to Mutt because I think he fell out of love with
Shania and wasn't happy with her.
He possibly was miserable living with Shania and that is why they both are happier with new relationships. They both moved on and I don't think they were in love for a long time.
And it is obvious Mutt was not in love with Shania anymore and was drawn to somebody else and he is much more happy.
And Shania could of been eyeing weird looking fred for a long time too and now she is with him.

So great poem and creative writing but I don't think it applies to Mutt Lange.

I agree he probably doesn't feel this way now but maybe when he first realized what was happening he might have.  I wrote this one back when news of the divorce first broke and had few details of what went on. But even if he fell out of love with her there still has to be times when he looks back with regret at what could have been and what was lost.  This is what I love about being creative it does not have to be true and there are no rules or guidelines.  It's just me being creative and taking the freedom and running with it.  Thanks for saying you like it.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Here's another one to read while we count down to American Idol and Shania's return.  Enjoy!!

      But Then There Was You

You walk in the room and I’m tryin’ to hide the way I feel
I’d built a wall, it was made of steel
No one was getting’ in, no one could get through
But then there was you
And your smile lights up my day
Shows me the way
I forget what to say
I don’t know what to do
And it’s somethin’ I would never admit to
But then there was you
And I never wanted my feelin’s to show
But then I see your smile and I just let it all go
With just one smile my skies all turn blue
And it’s nothin’ that I would ever admit to
But then there was you
And I know that you’re a gift from God up above
And your smile just radiates pure love
I don’t care if it’s wrong, I don’t care if it’s right
I don’t wanna let you out of my sight
Morning, noon and night
And it makes me wanna dance in the rain
Sing out loud even though I sound like I’m in pain
And it’s nothin’ I would ever admit to
But then there was you
And your smile lights up my day
Shows me the way
I forget what to say
I don’t know what to do
And it’s nothin’ I would never admit to
But then there was you
And I know you’re a gift from God up above
And your sweet smile radiates pure love
And though I try to hide how I feel
I know that it’s real
And it’s nothin’ I would ever admit to
But then there was you 

But Then There Was You was written after listening to the new song by Uncle Kracker,  You Make me Smile  and Wanna get to know you that Good by Shania and talking to another fan about how being around people that you really like and care about can make you feel even when you don’t want to admit it.  Maybe you felt this way about Fredric and didn't want to admit it but now you want to.

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi,
Think this one goes really well with the new picture. Kind of funny how that worked out isn't it?  Enjoy!!!

          Tangled Up 

Baby turn off that stupid alarm
Lie back down here in my arms
It’s rainin’ outside
I know the coolest place to hide
Just pick up the telephone
Tell your boss your stayin’ home
Let’s get tangled in the sheets
We can be discrete
There’s no better place to be
Just tell me you agree
Why don’t you make my rainy day
Close your eyes and let’s just play
There’s nothin’ else I’d rather do
Than be tangled up with you
Let’s get tangled in the sheets
This feelin’ can’t be beat
Can’t you feel the heat
The day has just begun
Let’s just have some fun
There’s nowhere I’d rather be
Tangled up just you and me
Underneath the covers
We’ll be holdin’ one another
Let’s get down and dirty in the sheets
There’s no better place to meet
Why don’t you make my rainy day
Close your eyes and let’s just play
There’s nothin’ else I’d rather do
Than be tangled up with you
Let’s get tangled in the sheets 

Tangled Up was also written after listening to It’s Alright as I was thinking about friends taking their relationship to the next level as in Friends with benefits as it is called now.        

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi, Bored when I wrote this.  It was right after the divorce and I was writing from Mutt's point of view.  Enjoy!!!

             Ghost of a Man 

I’m here all alone now that you’re not here
The last words you said still ringing in my ears
“You’ve got to love somebody and let them in
Before your life comes to an end
You’re not promised tomorrow
You have to be willing to risk going through the pain and the sorrow
You’ve got to realize sometime that the sun doesn’t always shine
And sometimes the tears will be yours and sometimes they will be mine
That’s just how love is but you’ll never know
Unless you just close your eyes and let go
You need to let your feelin’s show”
I just stood there and couldn’t say a word
But there was so much in that silence that you heard
By the time I found the right words to say
You just slammed the door and you walked away
Now this lonely house is haunted with your memory
Because I couldn’t give you my heart so easily
Now without your love I’m just a ghost of a man
Doin’ the best that I can
Tryin’ to live without you in my lonely misery
And I wonder if you even think of me
I still hear your voice echoin’ down these halls
And the pictures of you are still hangin’ on these walls
I’m just a ghost of a man tryin to live with your memory
Hangin’ on to a love that nobody else can see
Oh why did this have to be
And I wonder do you still love me
Without your love I’m just a ghost of a man
Tryin’ to live without you in my lonely misery
And I wonder do you still love me

Ghost of A Man was written from the viewpoint ofhow Mutt must feel after losing Shania and that special love and how there would be just an empty soul without her.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi Here is another one to read while we wait and wonder what Shania is up to and when she will return.
Enjoy!!!

     Face Of An Angel

Sit down and I’ll tell you a story, a story about a terrible crime
A story that could only be mine
I was tired of sittin’ at home
Always bein’a lone
So I got into my car
And I headed to the beach and this cozy little bar
I was sittin’ at a table when you came struttin’ in
With the face of an angel and body built for sin
Then you walked up and asked me to dance
And I knew I didn’t have a chance
Now I’m callin’ the law and puttin’ out an A.P.B.
On the worthless heart that you’ve stolen from me
The officer who took the call
Just laughed and said “Put another poster on the wall
Looks like she’s done it again
It’s the same old story that it’s always been
She stole the heart right from your chest
You’re no different from the rest
You’ve been had by the best
Tell me did she paralyze you with the look in her eyes when she walked in the room
Or were you intoxicated by the smell of her sweet perfume
Or could it be that you were hypnotized by the way she moved her hips
Or was it the sweet taste of red wine and chocolate on her lips
I couldn’t answer his questions I couldn’t even think
He told me to go over to the bar and have myself a drink
He came over and sat down beside of me
He said I can put out an A.P.B.
But I’m afraid it won’t do any good you see
Because you’re just another victim of her heart breaking crime spree
And then he said I have no doubt that she’ll return to the scene of the crime
But it won’t do any good to try and arrest her because she’s already doin’ time
Then he pointed to a picture on the wall
It was a picture of a man holdin’, her the most beautiful criminal of all
Then he said he did the same thing to a hundred others and then he did it to her
She learned everything she knows from him and that just said it all
She had the face of an angel and a body built for sin
And I knew that tomorrow night she’d be back again
I knew that from the look in her eyes in the photo on the wall that she’d
never let him go
‘Cause criminals like her always stick to their M.O.
She had the face of an angel and a body built for sin
I looked at the pictures on the wall and knew that she had done it again
It was the same old story that it’s always been
She had the face of an angel and a body built for sin

                                    
Face of an angel was written after listening to Crime of the Century. I liked the idea of love being compared to a crime as sometimes hearts get stolen before people realize what has happened.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
In honor of Shania's revealing her whereabouts these days I thought it only fitting and proper to repost this one.  To help paint a picture of where she is right now and maybe how she is feeling at the moment.

 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

Hi,
Something to read while we are waiting yet again for some contact from Shania!!
We still miss you!!  We're still waiting.  Enjoy!!!

         Guilty of Loving You

I’m guilty of loving you
Yeah you know it’s the truth
I can’t deny my heart, its living proof
I’m guilty of loving you
Caught red handed, convicted and tried
There’s nowhere to run and nowhere to hide
Can’t fight the love I feel so deep inside
There’s nothing I can do
‘Cause I know I’m guilty of loving you
Not making any excuses, I’m sorry for everything I’ve put you through
Just remember everything I’ve ever done and everything I’ll ever do
Is because I’m guilty of loving you
Loving you is such a crime
Since the day I met you my heart’s been doin’ time
But none of that really matters as long as you’re mine
And I know it’s the truth
I can’t deny my heart its living proof
There’s nothing I can say or do
I’m guilty of loving you
Just remember that everything I’ve ever done and everything I’ll ever do
Is because I’m guilty of loving you
I don’t need a fancy lawyer to argue on my behalf
I’ve made my choice I’ve chosen my path
Go ahead and lock me up, take my prints
I ramble on and I make no sense
I’ve got no defense
You know it’s the truth
I can’t deny my heart its living proof
There’s nothing left to do
Except to admit I’m guilty of loving you

 

Guilty of Loving You was written after listening to Crime of The Century and thinking about how love can make you do things you never thought you’d do.  Like dance around and pretend to be a fairy or play Sleeping Beauty Freeze Tag or pretending to be a butterfly.


Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Here's another one to read while we wait for Shania to return with new music...the old stuff still has the power to inspire...Enjoy!!!

        Holdin’ Paradise

 

Hear the waves crashin’in

Feel your breath on my skin

Open your heart and just let me in

I know how you love this warm ocean breeze

Kiss me again, don’t be such a tease

Put your hand in mine

And together we’ll lose track of time

There’s nobody around

Just close your eyes and don’t make a sound

You know I just can’t resist

Please just give me one more kiss

We can go back to our room

And as the sun gives way to the moon

I’ll hold you in my arms and we’ll just drift away

Right here in paradise is where I want to stay

Right here with you in paradise

The taste of your kisses, they do so entice

Right here in my arms I’m holdin’ on to paradise with all my heart and soul

Just one touch from you and I lose my self control

Lost in paradise so deep

Let whisper in your ear all the promises that I’ll keep

Lost in paradise so sweet

Just lie back and feel the heat

Here in the paradise I’ve found my treasure

And its worth for me is beyond measure

Right here in my arms I’m holdin’ on to paradise with all my heart and soul

Just one touch from you and I lose my self control

Lost in paradise so deep

Don’t ever want to fall asleep

Here in our room

As the sun gives way to the moon

I’ll hold you in my arms and we’ll just drift away

Right here in paradise with you is where I want to stay

 

                     

 

Holdin’ Paradise was written after listening to It’s Alright while sitting on the balcony of a hotel room with an ocean view and thinking about how nice it would be to have someone to share paradise with.

 
Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
 I wrote this one last year when there were all the rumors about a new album... enjoy!!

                                                                                              March 15, 2009      
 Don’t Love Me

Don’t love me
‘Cause it’ll hurt too much
Don’t love me
‘Cause I don’t wanna learn to live without your touch
Don’t love me
I don’t want to learn how
Don’t love me
I can’t handle it right now
Don’t try to break down these walls
Don’t you try to make me fall
Don’t love me
I don’t want to taste your kiss
Don’t love me
I don’t know how long I can resist
Don’t love me
I’ll just push you away
And hurt you with the words that I say
Don’t love me
Please just let me walk away
Don’t love me
Please just trust me when I say it’s just not worth going through
Don’t love me
There’s nothing you can do
I won’t let you in
Don’t think about what might have been
Don’t give me another thought
‘Cause I won’t get caught
I’ve been alone way too long
My defenses are way too strong
Don’t love me
I’ll only make you cry
So don’t even try
Don’t love me
I know it’s hard for you to see
That the things you want just can’t be
That’s why I have to say
Just take your heart and walk away
There’s no way it can ever be
Just don’t love me
I’m no stranger to the lonely nights
Someday you’ll see that I was right
The lock on my heart has no key
So don’t love me
You can’t take the pain
It would all be in vain
So just let me be
Don’t love me
         

Don’t Love Me was written as I was angry with myself for not being able to stop being a Shania fan.  I was also upset that we were hearing rumors about a new album and then no announcement came.  It was a mixture of anger frustration and disappointment.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi, 
Here's one I wrote back in July.  EnjoY!!

                                                                                        July 3, 2009

 I Just Love Lovin' You
 
I was hangin' with my friends
When I got to missin' you
That's when I realized
No matter what we're going through
No matter what you say or do
I just love lovin' you
My friends all think I'm crazy
For the way I feel about you baby
I can't help the way I feel
It all seems so unreal
They just can't understand why I do the things I do
But you know this much is true
I just love lovin' you
I just can't stop feelin' this way
You know I just can't walk away
It gets stronger everyday
I love everything about you
I love everything you say and do
And no matter what you put me through
I just love lovin' you
My friends say it ain't right
But anytime day or night
I come running back to you
They all know that it's so true
I just love lovin' you
Walkin' down the street
I wanna tell everyone I meet
I think that you're so sweet
It's all I wanna do
I just love lovin' you
I can't help the things you do
Even when you make me blue
Baby I just love lovin' you
Let me make this my one confession
I admit that you're my true obsession
Even when you make me blue
And I don't know what to do
I just love lovin' you
I love everything about you
I love the way the stars twinkle in your eyes
I love to hear the sound of love in your sighs
I love to see the wind blowin' through your hair
And the smell of your perfume everywhere
You know I love you through and through
I just love lovin' you
 

I Just Love Lovin’ You was written after buying a Canadian flag signed by Shania off of a person on the internet and thinking about how obsessed I am and how I can’t say no to anything Shania  whether I can afford it or not.  Wishing I could just let Shania go and walk away from my obsession but know I can’t.
 
Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
 Here is another something to read while we wait for another letter from Shania.
Enjoy!!!

      Here I am, There You Are

Here I am, there you are
Why does it have to be this way
Why can’t I find the right words to say
You’re in my heart, you’re in soul
You’re the reason I’m so out of control
When I’m lost you’re the one I always hope to find
You’re never far away; you’re always on my mind
When I speak and long to be heard
You are the one who hangs on my every word
When I need a place to hide
You open up your heart and let me deep inside
When I hurt you heal the pain
You’re the only thing that keeps me sane
Here I am, there you are
You’re always near, never far
When I think, you’re my thought
Love like this can’t be bought
If your love’s a trap you know I’m caught
Your love’s the lesson I’ve never been taught
So here I am, there you are
You’re always near, never far
So just let me give you all my heart
And I know we will never be apart
When I feel the need to be free
You only let me go so far
Then here I am, and there you always are

                       
Here I am, there you are was written after listening to Is there life after Love?  The line in the song Here I am there you are stuck in my head and I just wrote from there.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Something else to read while we wait for more wonderful and exciting news from Shania.
 As always I hope you enjoy!!!

                                                                                 October 17, 2009
       How Can I Keep On Loving You

How can I keep on loving you when I know
I’m just gonna have to let you go
How can I love you knowing this awful thing I know
Knowing the closer we get I’m just addin’ to the heartache
Knowing it will be more than my heart can take
How can I love you more every day
Knowing that catastrophe is on its way
How can I love you more
Knowin’ what’s in store
And I try to prepare myself so that it won’t hurt so much
But then I think about all the love I feel in your touch
And I just can’t hold back
Nothin’ can save this heart under attack
And I don’t want to hurt you
I’d rather take a stake to my heart and drive it right through
You know that’s true
I’m torn apart inside not knowin’ what to do
And how can I keep on lovin’ you
And every day we’re together the closer we get
There’s no turning back, our course is set
We’ve both passed the point of no return
Take my hand as we watch the bridges burn
Some lessons you just never learn
Although I’m stuck in a place where I’ve never been
I’ll never regret letting you in
And you make my life seem like heaven here on earth
‘Cause in your eyes I can see what I’m worth
And it breaks my heart
To know that one day we’ll be apart
How can I keep on loving you when I know
I’m just gonna have to let you go
How can I love you knowing this awful thing I know
Knowing the closer we get I’m just addin’ to the heartache
Knowing it will be more than my heart can take
How can I love you more every day
Knowing that catastrophe is on its way
How can I keep on loving you

 

How Can I Keep On Loving You was written after listening to Don’t and thinking about how sometimes new relationships don’t last.  After the breakup of a 15 year marriage normally the first relationship that you are in after that is not one that will last.  There has to be a rebound in between relationships and this is about how it would feel to know that you may love this person but yet you know deep inside it can’t last.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Wrote this one back in August. Enjoy!!!
                                                                                                  August 11, 2009
           How Deep Does The Bottle Have To Be

I was sittin’ at the bar when he came walkin’ in
Saw the bartender shake his head as he said “Oh no here we go again”
As he poured me a drink I said “What do you mean?”
He said “See the pour soul at the end of the bar at the end of the night
It’s the same old scene, by the time its last call
He won’t be able to walk at all
And he always says the same old things to me
He says, ‘Can anybody tell me how deep does the bottle have to be
For me to drink away her memory
Tell my why I was so blind that I couldn’t see
Just how losing her would destroy me
It was all my fault I made mistakes and finally got caught
She won’t take me back
My apologies don’t mean Jack
I can’t say that I blame her
I just wish we could go back to the way we were
And I know I’m in an awful state
But when I look into her eyes I can see the love has turned into hate
I wish that I had never told her a lie
I wish that I could take back all the tears I made her cry
Now I wish that I could die
And losing her is the reason why
So can you please tell me how deep does the bottle have to be
For me to drink away her memory
Why was I so blind that I couldn’t see
How losing her would destroy me
I should have stayed and tried to make it work
But I was too much of a selfish jerk
She was way too good for me
I was just too blind to see
Now I’m trying to escape her beautiful memory
Tell me how deep does this bottle have to be
For me to drink away her memory
Why was I so blind that I couldn’t see
That losing her would destroy me
And I’m drownin’ in the pain
And I know that it’s all in vain
‘Cause there’s not a bottle deep enough
To ever make me forget about her love
And I’m drownin’ in the pain
And I know that it’s all in vain
‘Cause there’s not a bottle deep enough
To ever make me forget about her love
No I’ll never find bottle deep enough
To ever drink away her sweet love

How Deep Does The Bottle Have To Be?  Was written because I was thinking I had read somewhere that Mutt had went to Canada to apologize to Shania and wanted to try and work things out.  I put myself in his place and tried to imagine what he did after Shania told him there was no hope of that.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi Jezibel,
Glad you like them.  No...not nearly good enough in my opinion.  I just do it as a hobby.  Only write when inspired.  Thanks so much for the support.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

They are good, better than a lot I hear on the radio.  They are great stories and what more could you ask for in a good old country song.

Thanks!!!  Glad to hear you think they would sound good on the radio and that others would like to hear them...would love it if Shania could sing just one...that would be cool.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Maybe Shania needs a co-writer since her split with Mutt.  ;)

You really need to get your songs out there before somebody steals them off here and makes them hits.  I've got ZERO talent so I'm hoping you're appreciating your's. 

You know what the judges on American Idol are always telling the contestants .. you've got to believe in yourself!!

Hi,
Wrote this one back in October.  Enjoy!!

                                                                                                October 13, 2009
                  I Don’t

I don’t want to need to hear you say you need me
And I don’t want you to be the only one I need to see
And I don’t want to need to have to see you everyday
And I don’t want to be the one to hang on every word you say
But I know that I can never walk away
I try to hide the way I feel but it’s like tryin’ to hide the moon
And I can’t help it but my face lights up every time you walk into the room
And I never wanted to need somebody like I’m needin’ you
And I don’t know what else I can say
I don’t know what else I can do
And I don’t know how I’m gonna get through
I know I’m not the only one who feels the way I feel
And I know that when you’re gone for you it won’t be such an ordeal
Sometimes I close my eyes and wish that I didn’t care so much
But then I feel your gentle touch
And it’s just something; I know that I can’t fight
I just need you here, wrong or right
Why did you have to walk through my door
I don’t want to feel this way anymore
I didn’t want to give my heart away
But with you there was nothin’ I could do or say
And I can’t explain why I’m feelin’ like this
Why are you the someone I just can’t resist
And I don’t want you to be the one who’s my saving grace
But I know you are and I see it every time I see your sweet face
And I don’t want you to be the one who makes me want to be all that I can be
And I don’t need you to be the one who always only sees the best in me
I don’t want you to be the one who’s always dependin’ on me
I don’t want to need to hear you say you need me
And I don’t want you to be the only one I need to see
And I don’t want to need to have to see you everyday
And I don’t want to be the one to hang on every word you say
No I don’t want you to be the one to make me feel this way


I Don’t was written after listening to Whatever you do Don’t and thinking about how when you are hurting you don’t want to let people back in.  You try and deny that you need anyone especially someone special in your life because you are afraid of getting hurt again.  I was thinking that this is how Shania may have felt about Fredric when he first tried to get close to her as more than just a friend.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

I' love to help her write but Shania and her writing are in a class by themselves...nowhere near that with my ability in my opinion.  Better to be stolen then thrown in a drawer never to see the light of day.  At least someone other than myself gets to read them and it may help them through a difficult time or may just help them to verbalize their own emotions and thoughts I guess.
Glad you like them.
Thanks for the support
Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi ,
Wrote this one back in April over a year ago. Just something else to read that was inspired by Shania.
Enjoy!!

                 
                                                                                                              April 14, 2009
            I Dream Of You

I dream one day of finding you
My dream one day it will come true
I dream of all the things that we will do
I dream one day of loving you
I dream of you day and night
I dream of you holding me tight
I dream one day we’ll be together
I dream of you and forever
Sometimes they laugh at me
And they just can’t see
How much I believe that one day somewhere in time
You will make this dream mine
They just can’t believe that one day I will find you
And my dream will finally come true
I dream of loving you
I close my eyes and I see you there
Sometimes I wonder why I dare
But I do, I dare to dream and dream I do
I dream of loving you
I dream of you day and night
I dream of you wrong or right
Nothing and no one else will do
One day my dream will come true
I dream of loving you
I close my eyes and I see you there
Sometimes I wonder why I dare
But I do, I dare to dream and dream I do
I dream of loving you

I Dream Of Loving You was written after listening to I wanna know you that good.  “I’ll be there when you’re sleepin’ every hour you’re awake.  When you sleep you dream and when you are in love with someone you think about them all the time and you get so involved and wrapped up in them that you even dream about loving them.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi Wrote this one back in May.  Enjoy!!

                                                                                                       May 7, 2009
               I Surrender

I surrender I give it all to you
My days of love on the run are all through
Baby I surrender with all my heart and soul
I surrender to the one who makes me whole
Baby all I can say is I surrender
I wanna taste your kisses so sweet and tender
Baby into your arms I surrender
We’re holdin’ each other and dancin’ slow
The music’s playin’ soft and low
So put your head on my shoulder an just let it all go
The stars are shinin’ up above
It’s the perfect night to fall in love
So close your eyes and hold on tight
I’m gonna sweep you off your feet tonight
Tell me that you feel it to
This feelin’ is oh so brand new
Tell me that it’s so
It’s time I let you know
That I’ll never let you go
Baby all that I can say
Is that I surrender all the way
It’s all a matter of fact
For me there’s no more holdin’ back
I don’t want to stop this heart attack
When I look into your eyes
That’s when I really realize
I wanna surrender
I wanna give it all to you
My days of love on the run are all really through
Baby I surrender to you
I wanna taste your kisses so sweet and tender
Baby I surrender
My days of love on the run are really all through
Baby I surrender to you

   I wrote I Surrender after reading an old National Enquirer article about an in-law of Shania's who would not surrender to the police after jumping a parole hearing.  He was convicted of drug trafficking and committed suicide rather than face justice.  I was thinking about how some people think following celebrities so closely is weird and they make fun of people for being fans so you think about it and try really hard sometimes to stop not let people know but then you can't...you always end up giving in to it or at least I do.  No will power.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

    I Get High On You

It’s so rejuvenating
And so exhilarating
I’ve found myself a brand new drug
No I don’t have a virus and I know it’s not some kind of bug
But every time you walk into the room
Like Batgirl fighting the powers of doom
Your smile chases away all of my gloom
And I know it’s such a strange mix
But everyday I’ve just got to get my fix
Don’t know just what it is that you’ve got
But everyday I’ve just got to have a shot
I’ve just got to get high on you
Like a bolt from out of the blue
Just one smile from you
It’s so electrifying
And there’s just no denying
You can see it on my face
This is a feelin’ that I know I’ll never replace
And I know that it’s such a strange mix
And every day I’ve just got to have my fix
I don’t want to find another way to get my kicks
It’s not some kind of virus and it’s not some kind of nasty bug
It’s just that lovin’ you is like bein’ on some kind of crazy drug
It feels like fire runnin’ through my veins
And without it I’d go completely insane
It’s become a habit I just can’t break
Withdrawals from you are more than I can take
I need rehab for heaven’s sake
Yeah it’s the strangest kind of mix
And I’ve just got to have my fix
I get high on you
Like a bolt from out of the blue
My head starts spinnin’ and there’s nothing that I can do
It happens every time you walk into the room
Like Batgirl fighting the powers of doom
Your smile chases away all of my gloom
And I know that it’s the strangest kind of mix
But every day I’ve just got to have my fix
It’s like fire runnin’ through my veins
And without you I would go insane
I’ve just gotta get high on you
There’s nothin’ I’d rather do
I just gotta get my fix
There’s no better way to get my kicks
And there’s nothin’ I’d rather do
I gotta get high on you
Yeah it’s the strangest sort of mix
Yeah I just gotta get my fix
Yeah I gotta get high on you

 

I Get High On You was written after talking to a friend  who said that her daughter  would need a fix of seeing me before the end of a two week vacation and also as I was listening to Whatever You do Don’t.  I feel the same.  It’s like eating chocolate.  I want to and have to see her everyday.  Days when I don’t see her are hard.  I’m addicted to her sweet smile and the sound of her laughter.  I just can’t get enough of her.  She is so much fun to be with.
I was thinking about how you get used to seeing people every day and when you don’t see them for a day or two you miss them.   I was also thinking about how my special little friend makes me feel so happy everyday.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Wishing we would hear from Shania as it has been what seems like ages.  Again with the feast or famine deal where she's concerned.  Anyway...here is something to read to pass some more Shanialess time.  Enjoy!!!

                                                                                                                     June 8, 2009

        I Knew I Loved You When 

I knew I loved you from the first moment that we met
I could tell that you didn’t even know it yet
I knew I loved you when you first smiled at me
I knew I loved you when with you is the only place I wanted to be
I knew I loved you when you were the one I didn’t want to be without
I knew I loved you then there was never any doubt
I knew I loved you when I held you tight
I knew I loved you, it just felt so right
I knew I loved you when with just one kiss you made me lose control
I knew I loved you when I could feel you in my soul
I knew I loved you when I smiled every time I heard your name
I knew I loved you when I knew I’d never feel the same
I knew I loved you when I felt my life was complete
I knew I loved you the first time I tasted your kisses so sweet
I knew I loved you when I couldn’t wait for forever to begin
I knew I loved you when…

 

I Knew I Loved You When was written after I heard
If You’re Not In It For Love I’m Outta Here.  
I was thinking about how love between the two of Mutt and Shania must have been
when they first met each other and how hard that must have been to let go.

Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi,
Something to read while we wait for a new post or some kind of news from Shania.
Enjoy!

                                                                                         September 12, 2009

        I Never Really Wanted To 

I don’t wanna love you so much that it hurts to breathe
I don’t wanna love you so much that I can’t feel my own heartbeat
I never wanted anyone to have this much control
I don’t wanna feel you so deep inside my soul
I don’t wanna love you so much that you make me whole
I don’t wanna love you so much that I can’t tell where I end and you begin
I never wanted to let you so far in
I never wanted to love you so much that my heart could break
I don’t wanna love you so much that my soul aches
I never wanted to love you so much
I never want to feel your touch
I never wanted to love you so much that I lost me
I never wanted this to be
I never wanted to love you so much that it scares me to death
I never wanted to love you more with every breath
I never wanted to love you so much that I have no doubts
That your love is something I just can’t live without
I don’t wanna love you so much that it hurts to breathe
And I don’t want to love you so much that I can’t feel my own heartbeat
I never wanted anyone to have this much control
I never wanted to feel you so deep inside my soul
And I never really wanted to
And you know that it’s sad but true
‘Cause you know with every fiber in me I really do
‘Cause I really love you so much that it scares me to death
And I love you even more with every breath
But I really never wanted to
‘Till I found you

 

I Never Really Wanted To was written after talking in e-mail with a friend about how we can’t explain what the hold is that Shania has on us and why we are so drawn to someone who doesn’t even know that we exist but yet we keep the faith and continue to be diehard fans.   

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

                I Wanna Feel Forever

I wanna feel forever in every kiss
I wanna spend forever feelin’ like this
I wanna make an offer of forever that you can’t resist
I wanna close my eyes and feel forever in your heart
I wanna hear you say that forever’s just the start
I wanna fell forever in your fingertips
And I know I wanna taste forever on the sweetest lips
I know I wanna hear you say that forever you’ll feel the same way
I wanna hear you say that forever it will be
Forever just you and me
I wanna see it in your eyes, feel it in your touch, taste it in your kiss
I wanna hear you say we’ll spend forever feelin’ just like this
Together let’s make forever somethin’ we just can’t resist
I wanna hear you say that forever I will be the one who makes you lose control
And that forever you’ll be able to feel me deep down in your soul
Baby together let’s let forever be our goal
I wanna see it in your eyes, feel it in your touch, taste it in your kiss
I wanna hear you say we’ll spend forever feelin’ just like this
I wanna feel forever in every kiss 

I Wanna Feel Forever was written after listening to I Wanna Know You that Good and Forever and for Always.  I just wanted to express my wish to someone that good and also to know love that has the promise of forever.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Wrote this one back in June of last year.  Old but it's how I thought Shania might be feeling at that time since it was so soon after the divorce.  She had also just sent us a letter about how much she was hurting from the divorce.

Enjoy!

                                                                                                June 20, 2009
        I Wish You Were Still My Man

I thought I saw you just the other day
Wondered if I did what would I say
I was shopping at the big Wal Mart
You were puttin’ all of our favorite things in your cart
So I chased you down the aisle
Hopin’ 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 feet
And 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 hand
All 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


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 her letter made me feel like Shania still felt this way.  I think she is still hurting very much.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

       Hi,
Wrote this one last year around this time.  Just something to read to pass the time while we wait on for the new music.            


                                                                       
August 23, 2009

    I’ll Take Loving Her To My Grave

There she goes on his arm again
That’s not how it should have been
There was a time
Not so long ago when she was mine
Until that awful day
When I let it all slip away
In the arms of someone else
I was only thinking of myself
I took her heart and her trust
And I shattered it into the dust
And no matter how many times I tried to apologize
There’s no longer any love left for me in her eyes
And I know that that is why I’ll take loving her to my grave
And for eternity it’s her sweet love that I’ll crave
If only she would give me a sign that there was something left to save
I’d be so happy to say I’ll take loving her to my grave
There she goes down that street
And it’s killing me to know that it’s a new love that she’ll meet
And I’m glad to know that she’s happy once again but it’s all so bitter sweet
Because I know I’ll have to take loving her to my grave
And for eternity it’s her sweet love that I’ll forever crave
If only she would give me a sign that there was something left to save
I’d be forever happy to take loving her to my grave
But I know the hell I put her through
And there was nothing left for her to do
And I know that I have no right to ask her to
But if she would only give me a sign
I would let her know that losing her is a regret I’ll carry with me ‘till the end of time
And that I’ll carry loving her to my cold and lonely grave
And forever it’s her sweet love that I’ll crave
If only she would give me a sign that there was something left to save
I’d be so happy to carry loving her to my grave 

 

I’ll Take Loving Her To My Grave was written after thinking about how if Mutt really did follow Shania to Canada to try and apologize and get her back how now he must have felt so full of regret and remorse for what he did to her and to Eja and himself.  I know ripping apart my family would be one mistake I would take with me to my grave. 
Warmest regard as always,Tonto

                   If You Love Me

         If You love me let me know
        We’re not promised tomorrow
        If you love me you’ll find the right words to say
        Don’t let it go another second, another minute, not another day
        If you love me let me know
        You’ve got to find a way to let it show
        Even in the times of pain and sorrow
        Just open up your heart please let it all go
        If you love me don’t be shy
        Just say you’ll love me ‘till the day we die
        ‘Cause if you love me just let it show
        Don’t be afraid to let it grow
        Like a rive just let the feelings flow
        ‘Cause if you love me I need to know
        Fine a special way to just say it everyday
        It won’t hurt to let me know 
       That you’ll love me even more tomorrow
       So just close your eyes and let me hear you say
       You’ll love me all of our sweet days
       So just open up and let it show
      No matter what we do or where we go
      If you love me let me know
      We’re not promised tomorrow
      Love me even through the pain and sorrow
      When you love me let me know
      You’ll never let me go
      If you love me tell me so
      If you love me let me know
     Find a way
    And say it everyday
    If you love me let me know
    We were never promised tomorrow
    So if you love me just let it show
    If you love me let me know

            

If You Love Me was written after listening to the Britney Spears song Shania wrote with Mutt. Don’t let me be the last to know.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

      But Then There Was You

You walk in the room and I’m tryin’ to hide the way I feel
I’d built a wall, it was made of steel
No one was getting’ in, no one could get through
But then there was you
And your smile lights up my day
Shows me the way
I forget what to say
I don’t know what to do
And it’s somethin’ I would never admit to
But then there was you
And I never wanted my feelin’s to show
But then I see your smile and I just let it all go
With just one smile my skies all turn blue
And it’s nothin’ that I would ever admit to
But then there was you
And I know that you’re a gift from God up above
And your smile just radiates pure love
I don’t care if it’s wrong, I don’t care if it’s right
I don’t wanna let you out of my sight
Morning, noon and night
And it makes me wanna dance in the rain
Sing out loud even though I sound like I’m in pain
And it’s nothin’ I would ever admit to
But then there was you
And your smile lights up my day
Shows me the way
I forget what to say
I don’t know what to do
And it’s nothin’ I would never admit to
But then there was you
And I know you’re a gift from God up above
And your sweet smile radiates pure love
And though I try to hide how I feel
I know that it’s real
And it’s nothin’ I would ever admit to
But then there was you


But Then There Was You was written after listening to the new song by Uncle Kracker,  You Make me Smile and talking to another fan about how being around people that you really like and care about can make you feel even when you don’t want to admit it.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Wrote this one back in April on a very special little friend's birthday.
Enjoy!!

                                                                                                                             

                                                              April 23, 2010

               Blindsided  

             I didn’t see it comin’
             I was always duckin’ and runnin’
             It took me by surprise
             I didn’t read it in your eyes
             It was a total blindside
            There was nowhere to run, and nowhere to hide
            I thought that love was overrated 
            I had you so underestimated
            My defenses were devastated
            Why do I feel so intimidated 
            When you’re around my knees get weak
             I forget how to breathe and I just can’t speak
             Your love came from out of left field
             Now my heart is healed
            One look into your eyes, and my fate was sealed
            I was blindsided by your love
           And now I just can’t get enough
           I was blindsided by love, blindsided by you 
           I was blindsided and there was nothing I could do
           There was nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
           Your love came at me from my blindside
           Never felt so much love, so deep inside
           And I never saw it comin’, it came from my blindside
           I was blindsided by love, blindsided by you
           Blindsided by a love so true

                 Blindsided was written after watching the movie The Blindside and thinking about how Shania must have felt blindsided by Her feelings for Fredric especially after what happened with Mutt.  She probably didn’t expect to feel so strongly so soon after what happened between her and Mutt.  I was also thinking about how I have been blindsided by how I feel about a special little friend who has came into my life.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Feeling really low lately.  Too many goodbyes.    Wrote this one back in July but really describes how I've been feeling for the last 6 months.
Enjoy!!
                                                                                     July 19, 2010
                   I Just Can’t Say Goodbye

           Standin’ outside in the pourin’ rain
           Lookin’ at the sky and screamin’ your name
           Hopin’ that the rain hides the tears I cry
           Right now all I wanna do is die
           Lookin’ at the dark and cloudy sky
           And wonderin’ just why
           I just can’t say goodbye
           With every single breath that I take
            I feel another little piece of my heart break
            And with every single word you say
            In my heart I just feel you slippin’ away
            Wishin’ in my heart I could get up the courage to just beg you to stay
            And inside all I wanna do is die
            ‘Cause I just can’t say goodbye
            I don’t wanna give up, I don’t wanna surrender
            I just wish you would close your eyes and try to remember
            The love that we had
            Tell me why it has to hurt so bad
             Every time I see you so happy it makes me so sad
             Because I think you’ve forgotten all about what we once had
             And every time I see you smilin’ and happy like nothin’ is wrong
             I ask myself how can you be so strong
             When all I wanna do is break down and cry
              And beg you for one more try
              ‘Cause I just can’t say goodbye
              I’ve never hurt like this before
              I don’t think I can take much more
              And every time I hear your name
              I go a little more insane
              And there’s just no way to end this pain
              ‘Cause I know you understand just why
              I just can’t say goodbye
              Standin’ out in the pourin’ rain
              Lookin’ up at the sky and screamin’ your name
              Askin’ myself just why
              I just can’t say goodbye


   Just Can’t Say Goodbye was written after listening to It Only Hurts When I Breathe and thinking about how much it must have hurt to have to say goodbye to such a big part of your life and such an important person.  I was also thinking about my little friend and how every day I can feel her slipping away and that soon she will forget me altogether…only wishing that that would work both ways but it doesn’t.


Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

  Hi,  Just wanted to send a few thoughts to the happy couple.  Actually wrote this one back in August but it seems to fit the occassion to a tee.  Congrats to Mr. and Ms. Thiebaud.                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                August 3, 2010

          As Long As You Love Me

I’ll share every secret with you, you’re my best friend
And when we argue I promise I’ll never break, I’ll be the one to always bend
And when you heart is broken I’ll be there to help it mend
I’ll be anything you need me to be
As long as I know you love me
And when the world seems so cold and cruel, I always know where you’ll be
I know I can face and conquer anything as long as I know you love me
And when the nights are dark and long I know that I can be strong and in the morning light you will see
That I can be all you need me to be
As long as I know you love me
When the world brings me to tears
I know I can face all my fears
And together we will be
Happy for all eternity
As long as I know you love me
And when I see you face I know the world’s not such an awful place
And my heart’s not just an empty space
You fill me with your beauty and your grace
And heaven is so easy to see
As long as I know you love me

 

As Long As I know You Love Me was written after listening to When You Kiss Me.  And also after reading a friend’s blog where she said that her husband was her best friend…that’s how it should be…soul mates sharing a lifetime…

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Just wrote this one after seeing the wedding photos.
Enjoy!!!

                                                                                                                    

  You Take Me to Heaven Every Time I Look at You 

         It’s not just the way you walk
         It’s not just the way you talk
         It’s everything you say and everything you do
         You take me to heaven every time I look at you
         I found out the hard way that your love is more precious than silver 
         or gold
         I know now you’re the only one I want to hold
        You’re an angel sent from above 
        And for the life of me I don’t know what I would do without your love 
      
With that long dark brown hair and your eyes so big and blue
        You take me to heaven every time I look at you
        I can see it in your eyes
        I know I’ve found my paradise
        Because when the world comes crashin’ in so cold and cruel
        And it leaves me feelin’ all alone and like a fool
        All I have to do is say your name
       And I realize that none of it matters it’s all just a game
       And I know when it all fades away your love will see me through
       ‘Cause you take me to heaven every time I look at you
       I’ve been searchin’ for your love for what seems like a million years
       And I’ve cried an ocean of lonely tears
      Now I can feel your love deep inside my soul
      You’re the missing piece that makes me whole
      And there’s nothin’ I wouldn’t say
      And there’s nothin’ I won’t do
      There’s no hell I won’t go through
      ‘Cause you take me to heaven every time I look at you
      I can see it in your eyes
      I know I’ve found my paradise
      And there’s nothin’ I wouldn’t say
      There’s nothin’ I won’t do
      There’s no hell I won’t go through
      ‘Cause you take me to heaven every time I look at you
      With that long dark brown hair and your eyes so big and blue
       You take me to heaven every time I look at you
       Yeah, you take me to heaven every time I look at you

You Take Me to Heaven Every Time I Look at You was written after seeing the picture of Fredric and Shania on the beach.  He picks her up and she is smiling and they are looking into each other’s eyes.  I was also thinking about my special little friend and how I feel about her.  It makes my heart happy to see her.

 Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

 Hi,
Thought you might like something to read while we wait.  Something for us to do while we kill time waiting for all the Shania overload soon to come.  Can't wait.  Her writing is so awesome and I can't wait to read her life in her own words... Wrote this one a while back.  Till then Enjoy!!!

                                                                                                   
July 28, 2009

                     Lie Here In My Arms

 Lie here in my arms ‘till the hurtin’ stops
Let me be the one to catch all of your teardrops
Lie here in my arms let me love the pain away
Right here in my arms you can forever stay
Lie here in my arms and tell me all your hopes and dreams
Right here in my arms it’s not as hopeless as it seems
Lie here in my arms and you will see
I can help you escape his memory
Lie here in my arms let the world just fade away
There’s only you and me
Lie here in my arms lay down your broken heart
Right here in my arms we’ll make a brand new start
Lie here in my arms and close your teary eyes
Right here in my arms you can watch as your love for him finally dies
Lie here in my arms you don’t have to say a word
Right here in my arms forget all the lies that you heard
Lie here in my arms until the night turns into day
Right here in my arms I’ll love his memory away
Lie here in my arms I want to taste your kiss
Right here in my arms I’ve never felt like this
Lie here in my arms I want to feel your heart beat next to mine
Right here in my arms there is no such thing as time
Lie here in my arms ‘till the hurtin’ stops
Let me be the one to catch all of your teardrops
Lie here in my arms let me love the pain away
Right here in my arms you can forever stay
Lie here in my arms lay down your broken heart
Right here in my arms we’ll make a brand new start
Lie here in my arms I’ll love the pain away
Right here in my arms I want you to forever stay

 

Lie Here In My Arms was written after thinking about Shania and Fredric and her relationship with him.  I imagined this might be what he would say to her to support and help her through her pain and heartache.

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi,
Just wanted to post something to read while we wait with baited breath for Shania to reappear.  Enjoy!!! It's an old one.

                                                                                                     May 28, 2009

             Remember Me When You’re Loving Her

 Remember me when you’re loving her
Close your eyes and just think back to the way were
When you close your eyes is it my face you see
When you kiss her lips do you pretend you’re kissing me
When she touches you does it feel the same
And in your mind do you call out my name
When she holds you in her arms at the end of the day
Does she hang on every word you say
Do you close your eyes and remember when we felt that way
When you look into her eyes do you have a hard time
Trying to forget the look in mine
Remember me when you’re loving her
Close your eyes and just think back to the way we were
When you close your eyes is it my face you see
When you kiss her lips do you pretend it’s me
Remember me when you’re loving her
When she kisses you does it take your breath away
Can just one smile from her make your day
Remember me when you’re loving her
Do you have trouble keeping track of all the lies you tell
Has the thought of me made loving her a living hell
Do you remember me when you’re loving her
Close your eyes and think back to the way we were
When you close your eyes is it my face you see
When you kiss her lips do you pretend it’s me
W
hen you look into her eyes what do you see
Do you remember when you were loving me 

Remember Me When You’re Loving Her was written after listening to Raining on Our Love.  The remember me lines got me to thinking that maybe for a while after Shania found out what Mutt had done that she might feel this way about him after he tried to convince her not to give up on him if he did try to apologize for what he had done.

 Warmest regards as always,Tonto

Hi,
Wrote this one a while back...maybe the new book reveals the secret...maybe it was the domestic abuse that no one knew about...or maybe there is more and we will never know...


                                                                                                                April 22, 2009
                     In Her Eyes

                In her eyes you can see all the sleepless nights where she hides all of her fears
   An in her eyes you can see the pain that she’s hidden all these years
 Buried deep inside her heart are the secrets she thinks will rip her world apart
 So late at night when she closes those eyes to sleep
 The secret hurts and fears are like a knife they cut so deep
 And deep inside her battered heart she wishes she could let another heart in
 But every time she does the secrets push up the walls all over again
 And sometimes in those eyes I think that I can truly see
 Love looking back at me
 But for her I know this may never be
 For the hurt it runs so very deep
 And she’s afraid of the promises others never seem to keep
 And deep inside those eyes just how much she wishes it could be
 That she could find and trust another heart
 With the secret fears that she think could rip her world apart
 In her eyes you can see that she wishes so very much
                That she could truly trust another’s touch
 And in those eyes you can see her true emotions
 Fighting the uncried tears that could fill, oh so many oceans
  And in those eyes you can see it all
 As she never really lets herself fall
 And in her eyes she tries oh so hard to hide all of the pain
 But I know there’s an emptiness that will always remain
 Hidden in her eyes
 And when she’s lyin’ in your arms you can almost feel the pain in her sighs
 And you can see how much her soul is aching, just look deep into her eyes

                                

 

In Her Eyes was written because of a conversation in e-mail with another fan about how we feel there is a secret deep within Shania 's heart that she's have never shared with anyone and that is what we see in her eyes.


 

Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Hi,

Sorry it's been a while since I posted but been really busy lately.  Anyway here's and old one to read. Enjoy!!

       Could I Be 

I was sittin’ all alone at a table when you walked in

Our eyes met and I wondered where you’d been

I was tryin’ to play it cool

Didn’t wanna be nobody’s fool

I smiled at you hopin’ you’d stop and just say hi

But my heart hit the floor as you walked on by

Sittin’ at a table in the back was a pretty, young thing

And I could see that you didn’t even notice me

How could you just pass me by and not even wonder in your mind

Could I be the one you need to hold you tight

Could I be the one to chase away all of your lonely nights

Could I be the one you just can’t live without

Could I be the one you love without a doubt

Could I be the one the you just can’t get enough of

Could I be the one you love

Could I be the one to make all of your dreams come true

Could I be the one you give all your heart and soul to

Could I be the one to love you

Tell me could I be the one you just can’t get enough of

Tell me could I be the one you love

 

  Could I Bewas written after listening to Wanna Know You That Good and also after seeing pictures of Shania at the Swiss Red Cross Ball.  I was thinking about her and Fred and how she just seemed to immediately jump into a serious relationship with him not considering any other options. 

Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Hi,
Something to read while we feast on all the Shania coverage.  It's awesome to be a Shania fan.   Enjoy!!!


                                                                                                                                               May 6, 2011

              Broken Open

Broken open…blown apart
There’s nothing left inside my heart
I’m so broken open….
Left standin’ all alone and only hopin’
That it’s not true
I never expected this from you
Broken open…but hangin’ on until the very end
Broken open…so confused
Can’t tell a foe from a friend
Broken open, blown apart
Need to pick up the pieces but where do I start
Broken open can’t hold it in anymore
Photographs and memories scattered on the floor
Broken open from all this pain
Fightin’ hard not to go totally insane
Broken open and now only lies and bitterness remain
Broken open so empty inside
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Broken open…blown apart
Searchin’ for the pieces of my shattered heart
Broken open
Left all alone and hopin’
I can get over you
Broken open
Left all alone and hopin’
I can find someone new
Broken open…blown apart
There’s nothin’ left inside my heart

 

Broken Open was written after watching Shania's appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show and hearing how devastated she was with her life when her marriage fell apart.


Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,

Found this one that I had written last year.  My version of Today.

Enjoy!!!

          

                                                                                                   March 15, 2010

                            Today 

Today she turned and walked away

From the one she thought loved her the most

Today she turned and walked away

From the one who promised her forever

Today she finally realized she could never put the pieces back together

Today she fought back the tears

As she remembered what she thought were happy years

Today he let it show

Just how easy it was for him to let her go

Today as he watched her walk away

He knew there was nothing left to say

Today she finally admitted this was the end

Today she knew her heart would never mend

Today she closed her eyes and whispered goodbye

Today she finally let her love for him die

Today she was bound and determined not to cry

Today he’ll drink himself insane

Knowing he’s only got himself to blame

For causing her so much heartache and pain

Today she finally let go of her old life

Today she finally stopped thinking of herself as his wife

Today he finally made her see that it just wasn’t meant to be

He didn’t want to work it out, he didn’t want to stay

And it all happened, today

Today she finally let her love for him die

She closed her eyes and whispered goodbye

As she handed him her ring

She didn’t have to say a thing

As she let her love for him die

She didn’t let him see her cry

Today

 Today was written after listening to When and thinking about the song and how it was asking about when the couple in the song would make up and pick up where they left off so I was thinking about the opposite of that…as in how long does it take to realize a relationship is over and how that would feel.

 Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Hi,
This is my show of support for Shania to gain her confidence back in herself to be able to perform live in front of millions of fans...the way she's going now she had better prepare herself for even more fans because I am sure that once the new single is out on the airwaves she will gain millions of new ones and we are all counting on her to come back completely and stay Forever.

                                                                                      May 23, 2011

         I Can Hear the Angels Cry  Tear of  Joy When You Sing

     Don’t be afraid
     Don’t you quit
     Now is the time this is it
     I know you think it’s too hard for you to do
     But I believe in you
     ‘Cause I can hear the angels cry tears of joy when you sing
     So beautiful, you don’t know the peace and love that you bring
    When you close your eyes, open your heart and sing
     Close your eyes, forget the past
    You know the pain and sorrow it won’t last
     So make a choice, free your voice
     Close your eyes, lose control
     Feel it deep inside your soul
     Sing for the strong, sing for the weak
     Sing for the ones with no voice that can’t speak
     Sing for the rich, sing for the poor
     Sing till the past doesn’t hurt you anymore
     So don’t be afraid to let it out
     It’s time to let go of the fear and doubt
     Don’t be afraid to do what you’ve been dreaming of
     Just close your eyes, open your heart and sing about all the hope and love
     ‘Cause I can hear the angels cry tears of joy when you sing
     So beautiful, you don’t know the peace and love that you bring
    When you close your eyes, open your heart and sing
     You know it’s gonna be an uphill climb
     And it’s gonna take some time
     But in the end you know you’ll be just fine
     I have faith in you
     I know you’ll find your way through
     I believe in you    
    ‘Cause I can hear the angels cry tears of joy when you sing
     So beautiful, you don’t know the peace and love that you bring
     When you close your eyes, open your heart and sing
      And I can hear the angels cry
      All you have to do is try
      I have faith in you
     I know what you can do
    ‘Cause I can hear the angels cry tears of joy when you sing
     So beautiful, you don’t know the peace and love that you bring
     When you close your eyes, open your heart and sing
    ‘Cause I can hear the angels cry tears of joy when you sing
     So beautiful, you don’t know the peace and love that you bring
     When you close your eyes, open your heart and sing
      I can hear the angels cry when you sing


  Warmest regards as always,
   Tonto

I Can Hear The Angels Cry Tears of Joy When You Sing was written after watching Shania struggle with trying to get her voice and confidence back on her show Why Not?  I wanted her to know that She has support and understanding as she battlesHer fears and doubts.
She can do anything and she can do it all without Mutt.  She will be more than successfull no doubt about it wher I'm concerned. She's always had the ability to survive on her own she did it a long time before she met Mutt.  It's ti,e she realizes that it's always been her and her abilities.  She gave him way too much credit.

Hi,
Here is another version of Today debated with myself on whether or not to post it but decided to anyway...Enjoy!!


                                                                                         May 20, 2011

                 Today She’s Gonna Make Her Getaway

She made up her mind, she’s gonna make her getaway
And there’s nothin’ he can do or say
Nothin’s gonna make her stay
Today as she looks in the mirror she wonders how long it will take for the bruises to fade
She thinks back and remembers all the broken promises he made
Today is the very last time she’ll have to lie to her friends and say that she’s Today she wonders how many times she’s been down on her knees and prayed
Dear Lord please let this be the last time
And please protect those sweet, innocent children of mine
Today is the very last time
She’ll have to lie and say that she’s fine
In her eyes you can see her world of sorrow and hurt
But today she’s made up her mind it’s the last time she’ll have to pick herself up out of the dirt
Today she’ll try to forget the hurt and only remember the love
Today she’ll wonder why she was never enough
Today it’s the kids she’s thinkin’ of
Today is a new day
And she’s gonna do it her way
No more bruises to hide
No more holdin’ it all inside
She never expected more than she could give
Today she knows livin’ in fear is no way to live
She packed the kids in the car
Left a goodbye note on the bar
Today she’s gonna spread her wings and soar
She’s not lookin’ back anymore
She won’t ever let her children see her cry
Though on the inside she feels like she’s gonna die
Today she’s gonna stop livin’ a lie
There’s nothin’ he can do or say
Today is gonna be the day
She’s gonna make her getaway
Today is gonna be her day
Everything’s finally gonna go her way
She’s ready come what may
It’s all brand new and for her it starts
Today
 
Today was written after reading Shania's book  “From This Moment On” and thinking about how many times her mom tried to leave with Shania and her brothers and sisters and how many times Shania was  the strength she needed to do it time and time again.  Also Shania's song Today was stuck in my head and the tune was catchy so I wrote another version of my own.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
Wrote this one after the tune to Are you gonna kiss me or not got stuck in my head...enjoy!

 

                                                                           June 23, 2011


            You’re Gonna Miss Me A Lot

You’re gonna think back on all the good times we had
And it’s gonna make you oh so sad
When you realize things weren’t so bad
Whether you admit it or not
You’re gonna miss me a lot
You don’t know what you’ve got
 Baby like it or not
I know you’re gonna miss me a lot
And I know there’s no doubt
It won’t be too hard to figure out
I’m somethin’ you just can’t live without
Sit down and let me tell you all about
How you’re gonna miss me a lot
Like it or not
You don’t know what you’ve got
You’re gonna miss me a lot
Right now I know you’re thinkin’ I’m leavin’ and so what
But you’re really gonna see
 It just won’t be the same without me
Whether you admit it or not
You’re gonna miss me a lot
You don’t know what you’ve got
 Baby like it or not
I know you’re gonna miss me a lot


You’re Gonna Miss Me A Lot was written after listening to Are you gonna kiss me or not by Thompson Square and thinking about the interview with Mutt that I found online where he supposedly said his biggest regret was not being able to make his marriage with Shania work and also how when Mutt asked for a divorce Shania might be thinking that eventually he would realize he’d made a mistake and that he would miss what the two of them had together.

Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
It's been a while since I've felt creative but the other day when the tickets went on sale I was inspired to take pen in hand once again and write something. I was so excited about getting my VIP tickets and so sad all at the same time because I like everyone else saw all the coverage of Shania on social media outlets everywhere saying that this would be her last tour and that she was giving up the public performing part of her career. Which then sparked everyone to say she is retiring. Believe it or not none of that matters as any fan of hers knows she doesn't really always stick to her own best laid plans so I take it all with a grain of salt knowing that whatever happens I at least have my tickets and a golden, once in a lifetime opportunity to see her perform live. I have never seen her perform live so if it is my first and last time then so be it. But I was sitting in a quiet room trying to keep all my excitement harnessed and in control because I was at work and my job requires that I be very quiet at times and this was one of those times I started writing. I just wanted to share it here because I think everyone here can understand the feelings and emotions involved in being a die hard Shania fan. Enjoy!!

Walk Away

Walk away there’s nothin’ left to say

Walk away feel the thunder taste the rain

Walk away from the hurt, from the pain

Walk away there’s nothin’ left for you to do

Walk away from the past and all we’ve been through

Walk away ‘cause I just can’t still love you

Just walk away and don’t look back

We just can’t keep headin’ down the same old track

Just walk away don‘t say a word

It’s the same old lies I’ve already heard

Walk way ‘cause I know that’s what you wanna do

Just walk away ‘cause I just can’t still love you

Just walk away don’t look back to see the tears

Walk away and take the memories of all these years

Walk away there’s nothin’ left to say

Walk away feel the thunder taste the rain

Walk away from the hurt, from the pain

Just walk away get out of my head

Just walk away

Just walk away turn your back don’t give me another

Thought

Lesson learned, lesson taught

Just walk away there’s nothing left to destroy

Just walk away I’m tired of being your toy

Just walk away

Just walk away there’s nothin’ left to say

Walk away feel the thunder taste the rain

Walk away from the hurt, from the pain

Just walk away

There’s nothin’ left to say

Just walk away get out of my head

Just walk away and leave my heart

Just Walk away





Warmest regards as always,
Tonto

Hi,
It's been a while. I've had a rough couple of years...the only good thing lately is the new music. I am for one am not at all shocked by the style of what we are getting...just listen to the pre-Mutt stuff and you will realize that country was not her main goal...she never wanted to be in any one genre or to be labeled. That is Shania just as she hates committing to any time lines or being held to her word. It's just who she is...love her or leave her. That being said it has started with me again. When the track list was released I
I couldn't get the song titles out of my head so here is something new from me...

I wrote this one on June 19th before the song ever came out which freaked me out when I heard the lyrics because I did something just like what she did without knowing...

My version of Pour Me.

Pour Me

Pour me into that glass and I promise I'll numb the pain,
Pour me into that glass and I'll help you to forget his name
Pour me into that glass and I'll take his memory off your mind
Pour me into that glass and I'll make the pain a little harder to find

Pour me into that glass one more and I'll take you from him and make you mine
Pour me into that glass and hold me tight
I promise I'll make it feel so right
So pour me into that glass and don't slow down
And tonight I'll keep his memory from coming around

So pour me into that glass one more time, close your eyes and hang on tight
Pour me into that glass one more time and you won't remember his name tonight
Pour me into that glass close your eyes and hang on tight
I promise I won't leave you lonely tonight
Pour me


Warmest regards as always,
Tonto
