I Just Call You Mine
by Martina McBride

I pinch myself sometimes to make sure I'm not in a dream
That's how it seems
I close my eyes and breathe in the sweetest moments I've ever known
It feels like home
And here I am, I want to be your everything
There you are
Turning winter into spring

And everyone who sees you
Always wants to know you
And everyone who knows you
Always has a smile
You're a standing ovation
After years of waiting
For a chance to finally shine
Everyone calls you amazing, yeah
I just call you mine

I fall apart
Just a word from you just somehow seems to fix
Whatever's wrong
Oh, you reach into the weakest moments
And remind me that I'm strong
You've got to know
I'd be a fool not to see you even worse
To forget that you're more than I deserve

'Cause everyone who sees you
Always wants to know you
And everyone who knows you
Always has a smile
You're a standing ovation
After years of waiting
For a chance to finally shine
Everyone calls you amazing
I just call you mine

Nothing makes sense when you're not here
As if my whole world disappears
Without you what's the point of it

'Cause everyone who sees you
Always wants to know you
And everyone who knows you
Always has a smile
You're the dream that I've been chasin'
After years of waiting
For a chance to finally shine
Everyone calls you amazing
I just call you mine
Everyone calls you amazing
I just call you mine

Welcome to the Future
by Brad Paisley

When I was ten years old,
I remember thinkin' how cool it would be,
When we were goin' on an eight hour drive,
If I could just watch T.V.

And I'd have given anything
To have my own PacMan game at home.
I used to have to get a ride down to the arcade;
Now I've got it on my phone.

He-e-ey...
Glory glory hallelujah.
Welcome to the future.

My grandpa was in World War II,
He fought against the Japanese.
He wrote a hundred letters to my grandma;
Mailed 'em from his base in the Philippines.

I wish they could see this now,
Where they say this change can go.
Cause I was on a video chat this morning
With a company in Tokyo.

He-e-ey...
Everyday is a revolution.
Welcome to the future.
He-e-ey...
Look around it's all so clear.
He-e-ey...
Wherever we would go and well we...
He-e-ey...
So many things I never thought I'd see...
Happening right in front of me.

I had a friend in school,
Running-back on a football team,
They burned a cross in his front yard
For asking out the home-coming queen.

I thought about him today,
Everybody who's seen what he's seen,
From a woman on a bus
To a man with a dream.

He-e-ey...
Wake up Martin Luther.
Welcome to the future.
He-e-ey...
Glory glory hallelujah.
Welcome to the future.

I Know
by Sarah Slean

Loud mouth, suits and ties
Liars, with money and girls
The kind you fit in your pocket
I can't save them from this darkness
My sisters, I love them all
My faeries pinned against the wall

I know what you want
And I know what you want
And I know

Doll, made of paint and china
Your worth lies only in these
But you're real to me
Little bones, will you break these legs like twigs now?
There's pain here you'll never have to feel
Never have to feel

I know what you want
And I know what you want
And I know

And I would fight a thousand men
I'd fight fire and wind and rain
I'd cry a river of tears for them
The bodies floating there
Christ-like and bare
Tell me, is that fair?

There are some things I can't forgive
Some things I just can't forgive
Some things

Jesus, I thought we had an understanding
The fact that you can buy a woman
Makes me want to die
Where were you last night?
Jesus, Jesus
Where were you?

And I know what you want
I know it all too well
And I know
I know

Brand New Man
by Brooks & Dunn

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

Well the whole town's talking
'Bout the line I'm walking
That leads right to your door
Oh how I used to roam
I was a rolling stone

I used to have a wild side
They say a country-mile-wide
I'd burn those beer joints down
That's all changed now
You turned my life around

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I used to love 'em and leave 'em
I'd brag about my freedom
How no one could tie me down
Then I met you
Now my heart beats true

Baby you and me together
Feels more like forever
Than anything I've ever known
We're right on track
I ain't looking back

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I saw the light
I've been baptised
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

I'm born to love again
I'm a brand new man

Willow
by Sarah Slean

Willow tree by the sea
Where the gods lie
How I love to look at you
With all my aching eye

Winter comes, winter kills
Let it go by
There'll be better days
Willow
Don't cry

Willow star shine afar in a dark sky
You're the one I'm wishing on
With all my weary might
Tell the trees if you please
That it is alright
There'll be better days
Willow
Don't cry

River bend
River sigh
River so wide
Wash away the worry
From my lonely heart tonight

Lover comes
Lover goes
Let him go by
There'll be better days
Willow
Don't cry

Holy intuition, the Superior Maunt felt, did not figure among her own administrative talents. She was a common-sensist. She thought the Unnamed God had given her a brain to use, not to ignore as a snare of the devil. She had tried to lift herself up by clear thinking, and others, too, when she could.

I may end up being a really crappy parent when I have kids someday. But, thank God, at least I won't mind if they're gay.

George Clooney is so hot because...

...Rosemary Clooney exudes some kind of weird aura that makes her attractive. Well, before she died. Now I don't know what she exudes, but I bet it's more disgusting than a weird aura that makes her attractive. And George inherited it. And probably will inherit the other, eventually, as well.

Any other theories?
