Life Is Getting Me Down ...

This is not my favorite kind of music, but the lyrics fit my needs for the post. Did you ever have a week where you just couldn't go it by yourself? It's been a hard week. So far in the past nine days, I've gotten strep throat, pink eye and an ear infection that plugged my ears and have rendered me almost completely deaf. Scary. I couldn't hear B-man the first morning and that was just heart-breaking. Can't talk on the phone or do things I've always taken for granted, like listening to the news on the radio. I'm coping, but barely, and I keep praying that it will get better soon. I need a hug in the worst way. Thanks for letting me whine. XOX




Sometimes life can be a burden,
Trying to stay one step ahead,
Feel the world upon my shoulder each time,
I'm standing out on the edge,
And my hopes have all deserted me,
Like they've washed away in the sand,
And it's hurting my pride,
trying to survive,
But I know that I stand a chance,
When you lay your hands,
Cos it's the only thing I have that still makes sense,
Oh baby when I'm calling out,
Give me love and affection,
keep telling me, showing me the way,
Oh when you see me falling down,
Lift me up from the shadows,
will you take me away to a better place,
And when I'm in my darkest hour,
Be by my side, to turn the tide,
Until my suffering fades,
When life is getting me down,
getting me down, and close to defeat,
Come and lay your hands on me,
Feel this road is getting longer now,
And I'm too far away from home,
Cos I gotta keep on movin on,
But I can't do it on my own,
Baby keep my head above water,
Help me swim for my life,
Cos the game is getting harder,
The strain is getting stronger,
And i can only face the fight,
When you lay your hands,
Cos it's the only thing I have that still makes sense,
Oh baby when I'm calling out,
Give me love and affection,
keep telling me, showing me the way,
Oh when you see me falling down,
Lift me up from the shadows,
will you take me away to a better place,
And when I'm in my darkest hour,
Be by my side, to turn the tide,
Until my suffering fades,
When life is getting me down,
getting me down, and close to defeat,
Come and lay your hands on me,
Till I'm healed again,
Rediscovered my strength,
And those bitter blues are gone, all gone,
Oh baby when I'm calling out,
Give me love and affection,
keep telling me, showing me the way,
Oh when you see me falling down,
Lift me up from the shadows,
will you take me away to a better place,
And when I'm in my darkest hour,
Be by my side, to turn the tide,
Until my suffering fades,
When life is getting me down,
getting me down, and close to defeat,
Come and lay your hands on me
