longest night

sometimes, on the longest night, i can't find the words. music always does...

is it dark, where you are?
can you count the stars where you are?
do you feel like you are a thousand miles from home?

are you lost, where you are?
can you find your way when you're so far?
do you fear, where you are?
a thousand nights alone

so here we are set into motion
we'll steal a car and crash in the ocean
you and i, caught in a fading light
on the longest night

it's enough, just to find love
it's the only thing to be sure of
so hard, to let go of
a thousand times or more

i was close to a fault line
heaven knows, you showed up in time 
was it real?
now I feel, like I'm never coming down

so here we are set into motion
we'll steal a car and crash in the ocean
you and i, caught in a fading light
on the longest night

i recall when we were together
even now it seems like forever
so alive caught in a fading light
on the longest night

can we go too far to find, what is waiting here?
a little fall from grace
on the longest night

did we go too far to find, what is waiting here?
we'll take a little time, to open again
is it dark where you are?
can you count the stars where you are?

25

anyone who dares think the san francisco giants are just about pitching has been living in a gopher hole since 2010. even our two-time cy young award winning pitcher is a relief pitcher in the post season. all our era's are up. our pitching has rarely made it past the 5th inning. the rest of the team never says die. no, this is the ultimate team. win or lose, 25 guys who play all out for each other. on offense and defense. who catch the impossible fly ball to preserve a perfect game. picks each other up. speedy, sharp defense. aggressive on the bases. short ball extraordinaire. this team is scrappy. plays through injuries. owns the nl batting title after coming back from a horrific injury. plays like every day is their last. ignores history and then makes it. orange october.
