The Arts

Im going to start keeping everything that reminds me of arthritis, or my situation here. Songs, art, poetry, quotes, etc.

 

 

Here’s a sketch I found at deviantart.com

Here’s a link 🙂  http://thevilbrain.deviantart.com/art/arthritis-49684072

 

 

And we are so fragile,
And our cracking bones make noise,
And we are just,
Breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys. -Ingrid Michaelson

 

Some days I feel like crying
Don’t matter if its rain or shine
I feel like my heart was broken
At least a million times
Some days I wake up dreaming
Feels like I never even woke
Answer life’s big question
As if it’s one big joke
Maybe it’s too soon to be sure but I
Really do believe that some day we’re gonna have it all-Jeerem Kay

 

 

I don’t feel comfortable with the way my clothes fit.
I cant get used to my bodys limits.
I got some fancy shoes to try and kick away these blues.
They cost a lot of money but they arent worth a thing.
I wanna free my feet from the broken glass and concrete.
I need to get out of this city.
Lay apon the ground stare a hole in the sky,
wondering where I go when I die. -Brett Dennen
 

 

 

And so it goes another lonely day
Your savin time but your miles away
Your fly was drownin in some bitter tea
For seeing lost opportunity
Find your mirror go and look inside
And see the talent you always hide
Don’t go kidd yourself well not today
Satisfaction’s not to far away- Pete Murray
 
 
 
 
 

 

Take a look at my body
Look at my hands
There’s so much here that I don’t understand
Your face say these promises
Whispered like prayers
I don’t need them
Because I’ve been treated so wrong
I’ve been treated so long
As if I’m becoming untouchable -Natalie Merchant

                               

 

A laundry list of problems,
Doesn’t make you interesting,
And never getting help doesn’t make you brave,
Not listening to reason doesn’t mean that you have faith,
Your just cutting off your nose to spite your face, -Straylight Run

 

 

Life inside the music box ain’t easy.
The mallets hit the gears are always turning,
and everyone inside the mechanism is yearning to get out.
And sing another melody completely.
So different from the one they’re always singing.
I close my eyes and think that i have found me,
but then I feel mortality surround me.
I want to sing another melody.
so different from the one I always sing. -Regina Spektor

 

My my my it’s a beautiful world
I like swimming in the sea
I like to go out beyond the white breakers
Where a man can still be free (or a woman if you are one)
I like swimming in the sea.

My my my it’s a beautiful world
I like drinking Irish tea
With a little bit of lapsang souchong
I like making my own tea.

My my my it’s a beautiful world
I like driving in my car
Roll the top down sometimes I travel quite far
Drive to the ocean stare up at the stars
I like driving in my car -Colin Hay

 

Wake up, take your pills dear, I know this time of year ain’t
right for you…
you came with a sickness, shot down back in Christmas,
Kamikaze rain…
and I’m sure you’ve lost that weight again,
I’m sure the pills keeping pouring in,
like smoke that falls, it’s caving into you…
so put me on a plane, and fly me to anywhere…with you… -Augustana

In the light of the sun, is there anyone? Oh it has begun…
Oh dear you look so lost, eyes are red and tears are shed,
This world you must’ve crossed… you said…You don’t know me, you don’t even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah,
Essential yet appealed, carry all your thoughts across
An open field,
When flowers gaze at you… they’re not the only ones who cry
When they see you
You said…
You don’t know me, you don’t even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah,

She said I think I’ll go to Boston…
I think I’ll start a new life,
I think I’ll start it over, where no one knows my name,
I’ll get out of California, I’m tired of the weather,
I think I’ll get a lover and fly em out to Spain…
I think I’ll go to Boston,
I think that I’m just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind…
I think I need a sunrise, I’m tired of the sunset,
I hear it’s nice in the Summer, some snow would be nice… oh yeah, -Augustana
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

well I looked my demons in the eyes
lay bare my chest
said do your best
to destroy me

I’ve been to hell and back
so many times
I must admit
you kinda bore me -Ray Lamontagne

 

 

She lifts her skirt up to her knees
walks through the garden rows
with her bare feet laughing

I never learned to count my blessings
I choose instead to dwell
in my disasters

I walk on down the hill
through grass grown tall
and brown and still
it’s hard somehow
to let go of my pain -Ray Lamontagne

 

 

Trouble…
Oh, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble
Feels like every time I get back on my feet
she come around and knock me down again
Worry…
Oh, worry, worry, worry, worry
Sometimes I swear it feels like this worry is my only friend- Ray Lamontagne

 

 

Oh no, I see
A spiderweb and it’s me in the middle
So I twist and turn
But here am I in my little bubble -Coldplay

 

 

 

I feel fine
but time I cannot change
so here’s to looking back
you know I drink a whole bottle of my pride
and I toast to change
to keep these demons off my back
just get these demons off my back
cause I want to shimmer, I want to shine
I want to radiate
I want to live, I want to love
I want to try to learn not to hate
try not to hate
we’re born to shimmer, we’re born to shine
we’re born to radiate
we’re born to live, we’re born to love
we’re born to never hate-Shawn Mullins

 

 

I know this night won’t last forever
I know the sun is gonna shine sometime
I need some hope for a bright tomorrow
And I know this heart is gonna mend just fine

So pardon me for my disposition
I wish I didn’t have to sit and listen- Sawyer Brown

 

 

I don’t know what I want, so don’t ask me
cause I’m still trying to figure it out
don’t know what’s down this road, I’m just walking
trying to see through the rain coming down
even though I’m not the only one
who feels the way I do.
I’m alone, On my own, and that’s all I know
I’ll be strong, I’ll be wrong, oh but life goes on
Oh I’m just a girl, trying to find a place in this world- Taylor Swift

 

 

T

wenty years it’s breaking you down, now that you understand there’s no one around.
Take a breath, just take a seat, you’re falling apart and tearing at the seams.

Heaven forbid you end up alone and don’t know why
Hold on tight wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright

It’s on your face, is it on your mind, would you care to build a house of your own.
How much longer, how long can you wait, It’s like you wanted to go and give yourself away -The Fray

 

 

And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be. -The Beatles

 

 

Here is the money that I owe you
So you can pay the bills
I will give you more
When I get paid again

I hate those people who love to tell you
Money is the root of all that kills
They have never been poor
They have never had the joy of a welfare christmas- Everclear

 

 

Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

Suppose I said
Colors change for no good reason
words will go
From poetry to prose

Would you want me when I’m not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else? -John Mayer

 

let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears
while we all sup sorrow with the poor
there’s a song that will linger forever in our ears
oh, hard times come again no more

’tis a song, a sigh of the weary
hard times, hard times come again no more
many days you have lingered around my cabin door
oh hard times come again no more

while we seek mirth and beauty
and music light and gay
there are frail ones fainting at the door
though their voices are silent
their pleading looks will say
oh, hard times come again no more

’tis a song, a sigh of the weary
hard times… hard times come again no more
many days you have lingered around my cabin door
oh, hard times come again no more

’tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave
’tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
’tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
oh, hard times come again no more -Eastmountainsouth

 

 

There are no guarantees in life
Not for the present,
Nor for the future.
All I know is
That I’m here;
Don’t know for how long.
I love the way
You live so intensely
Enjoy every minute of life
With space to swing
Your arms around
Laughing loudly

Unlike me
Unlike me
Do you think I’m strange?
Unlike you
Unlike you
I am not pretending

There is no time,
There is no time,
There is no time,
Time doesn’t really exist.

The past, the present,
And the future,
Are all side by side,
Hand in hand.
You move and change,
Yet you go nowhere:
Everything stays the same.
You stare at me,
And ask me questions,
Makes me nervous,
This room it keeps a constant tone
While I’m on a roller coaster

Unlike me
Unlike me
Do you think I’m strange
Unlike you
Unlike you
I am not pretending -Kate Havenvik

 

 

And I saw it coming
I saw emptiness and tragedy
And I felt like running
So far away
But knew I had to stay
And I know when I’m older
I look back and I still feel the pain
I know I’ll be stronger and I know I’ll be fine
For the rest of my days
I’ve seen better days
Put my face in my hands
Get down on my knees and I pray to God
Hope he sees me through till the end
I noticed the smallest things
But I didn’t notice the change
It was hot in the morning
Then it turned so cold, twas the end of the day
There was no condensation I just felt like I was in space
I needed my friends there I just turned around
They were gone without a trace

I’ve seen better days
Put my face in my hands
Get down on my knees and I pray to God
Hope he sees me through till the end

Now I have just started
And I won’t be done till the end
There’s nothing I have lost
That was once placed upon the palm of my hands
And all of these hard times
Have faded round the bend
Now that I’m wiser I cannot wait
Till I can help my friends -Pete Murray
