Music Monday: Songs for a hopeless romantic

If you know me at all or have been reading this blog for any length of time, you know I'm a hopeless romantic.  Emphasis on the hopeless part.  I've never been in what I would call a serious relationship, and I am not even going to tell you what year it was the last time I was on a date.  Yep, that's definitely hopeless. 

Try as I might, somehow I cannot give up on the idea of finding someone.  I get so frustrated sometimes that I just want to hide away for the rest of my life and adopt more cats.  Yet I haven't fully subscribed to the idea that all men are clueless jerks (because I know too many good ones who prove otherwise).  I just don't know where to find one for me.

Sigh.

Everyone keeps telling me it happens when you least expect it, and that there's someone for everyone.  But I don't believe either of those statements.   Sorry, but I don't.

Here are some songs that sort of sum up my feelings about love and where it relates to my life ...


You'd think that I could find
A true love of my own.
It happens all the time
To people that I know.
Their wishes all come true,
So I've got to believe
There's still someone out there who
Is meant for only me.

\\\\////



The time that I've taken
I pray is not wasted
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
One sweet love.

\\\\////


I'm all for love,
But I can't see the light.
Tell me how to do it,
Tell me how I'm gonna get it right.
I'm all for love,
And I'll try it again
I don't wanna give up.
I don't wanna give in.

\\\\////


((And I just have to share all of the lyrics for this one ... because it's too perfect.))

Something tells me I'm not getting younger,
As time goes by like the wind.
Cause in my chest my heart is beating faster,
As I wonder where and when.
Will she come catch my eye,
Step in to my life.
I don't know how it will be,
But here's my word tonight.

I will love you more,

Than the ocean loves rain.
I will be your strength,
Even in the pain.
And our love will grow
Every morning, night, and noon.
Oh, but until then,
I'll wait for someday soon.

There's a lot things I want to tell you,

About the future that's in store.
For raising a family,
Where we'll pass our love to.
A new life, an open door.
But I know there will come a day,
When nothing's going right.
And I'll take your hand in mine,
And walk you through the night.

I will love you more,
Than the ocean loves rain.
I will be your strength,
Even in the pain.
And our love will grow
Every morning, night, and noon.
Oh, but until then,
I'll wait for someday soon.


Will she come take my breath,

And knock me off my feet.
As worlds collide,
And souls inside finally meet.

I will love you more,

Than the ocean loves rain.
I will be your strength,
Even in the pain.

Ohhh...

I will be your strength, 
Even in the paiin
And our love will grow 
Every morning night and noon.
Oh, but until then,
I'll wait for someday soon. 
I'll wait for someday, someday soon.
Someday soon.
Someday soon.

  1. I've always loved that Bryan White song =) And now I'm off to check out more Serena Ryder! I've never heard of her before, but I definitely loved "All For Love".
