Heart of Gold

So, today I’m feeling a little sentimental… ♥To give a love, you gotta live a love. To live a love, you gotta be “part of”♥…

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I don’t have a Valentine. Not that I’m super pissed about it or anything. I’m not going to drive my car off a cliff (not that we have cliffs in Florida), but it does make you think about how much pressure we put on people in this country to be a couple and that you’re not truly happy unless you have a significant other.

The whole Hallmark-ization of our holidays gets to be a bit overwhelming. The day really should be Anna Howard Shaw Day. She was the first female Methodist Minister and a leader in the women’s suffrage movement and Liz Lemon from 30 Rock made it quite clear who really should be celebrated on February 14 (read/watch this).

Anyway, sometimes I feel like I miss the companionship and tenderness of a partner however other times I’m actually rather happy I’m not attached. Today is one of the former days and not the latter so therefore I’m sharing with you some Neil Young. He’s got such great soul to his songs. Enjoy! 🙂

Heart Of Gold

Out On The Weekend

Only Love Can Break Your Heart



When you were young
and on your own
How did it feel
to be alone?
I was always thinking
of games that I was playing.
Trying to make
the best of my time.

But only love
can break your heart
Try to be sure
right from the start
Yes only love
can break your heart
What if your world
should fall apart?

I have a friend
I’ve never seen
He hides his head
inside a dream
Someone should call him
and see if he can come out.
Try to lose
the down that he’s found.

But only love
can break your heart
Try to be sure
right from the start
Yes only love
can break your heart
What if your world
should fall apart?

I have a friend
I’ve never seen
He hides his head
inside a dream
Yes, only love
can break your heart
Yes, only love
can break your heart
