Green Eyes said...


Yeah it does

I listen to our favorite song playing on the radio,
Hear the DJ say loves a game of easy come and easy go.
But I wonder does he know?
Has he ever felt like this?
And I know that you'd be here somehow, If I could have let you know somehow. I guess...

Jamie Dawn said...

About your previous post: I'm with you about the mega heat. When it's hot, it is toooo hot. I grew up in CA (the Bay Area, then lived near Modesto for fifteen years before moving out of CA to AR). I know the difference between a dry heat and the humid heat of AR. BUT, like you said HOT is Hot... period!

I am thrilled. This summer, I will see Foreigner and Kanses in concert. YES!! I am feeling gooood!

:P fuzzbox said...

jamie dawn: Keep a tight grip on those tickets. You wouldn't want to be standing in the rain with your head hung low.

Gerald Ford said...

The Rolling Stones taught that you can't always get what you want, so sometimes you just gotta get what you can. ;p
