Saturday’s Song: Already Gone

(I know I posted this song once before, but I hope it’s been long enough that my devout followers don’t notice …or, at least, can forgive… the repetition)

May 24 was the anniversary of the night my husband said we should separate.  Six years ago this weekend, I walked through a street fair with an old friend and told him, “I’m still sleeping and eating, so I know I’m ok.”

All of this reminds me of the song that was my personal anthem (well, one of them) during that period of my life and I thought it would be fitting to share it here today.  I love this song because it represents the power that we have to take control of a situation instead of simply letting things happen to us.  Today I’m going to take control of the weathering process and paint the trim on my shed doors 😉

Have a happy and safe Holiday Weekend, everyone!  Enjoy Already Gone, by The Eagles…

“Already Gone”
(written by Jack Tempchin and Robb Strandlund)

Well, I heard some people talkin’ just the other day
And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf
But let me tell you I got some news for you
And you’ll soon find out it’s true
And then you’ll have to eat your lunch all by yourself
‘Cause I’m already gone
And I’m feelin’ strong
I will sing this vict’ry song, woo, hoo,hoo,woo,hoo,hooThe letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why
But I guess you felt like you had to set things right
Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky
You can see the stars and still not see the light (that’s right)And I’m already gone
And I’m feelin’ strong
I will sing this vict’ry song, woo, hoo,hoo,woo, hoo,hooWell I know it wasn’t you who held me down
Heaven knows it wasn’t you who set me free
So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains 
And we never even know we have the key 

But me, I’m already gone
And I’m feelin’ strong
I will sing this vict’ry song
‘Cause I’m already gone
Yes, I’m already gone
And I’m feelin’ strong
I will sing this vict’ry song
‘Cause I’m already gone
Yes, I’m already gone
Already gone
All right, nighty-night
