Gone Are The Days Lyrics

And we were just a child with a myst that children make
And we were running wild, no thoughts for what we'd break
But gone are all the days, gone are all the days
And once we learn to hide, our size did keep us safe
The sidewalk cracks were wide, but to jump 'em made us brave
But then the darkness came-a creepin' over every place
Over time we took to sleeping, and let the weeds take over this place
Well, how about the backyard, sons and daughters
C'mon, we've got to get some work done
The bones, I'm told, they hold the place up, so why crack 'em away
The rocks we shake, and everything we take and still think will be OK
But gone are all the days, gone are all the days

Well, the limbs outside this house are dignified by the forces uncontained
And how we survive when the whales run dry, now their muscle does remain
For when we rode the thunder steely faced
And we kicked our heels into the belly of the chase
So becomes a garden soft and embracing to a hungry, hollow taste
If we keep building fires and fanning up the flames, even the waters from our eyes will never dampen down that place
But gone are all the days, gone are all the days
Still every morning's light and all the day it stays, until it turns to night and then the future's on its way
And the future's never gonna lay down, it won't lay down its face
Hold that shoulder strong and carry it along, and steady it with grace

Private Practice Quotes

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
