Top Of The World

I wished I was smarter
I wished I was stronger
I wish it had been easier
Instead of any longer
I wished I could have stood where you would have been proud
But that won't happen now
That won't happen now

There's a whole lot of singing that's never gonna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Think I broke the wings off that little song bird
She's never gonna fly to the top of the world right now
Top of the world

I wished I'd a known you
Wished I'd a shown you
All of the things I was on the inside
I'd pretend to be sleeping
When you come in in the morning
To whisper good-bye
Go to work in the rain
I don't know why

'Cause everyone's singing
We just wanna be heard
Disappearing everyday without so much as a word somehow
Wanna grab a hold of that little song bird
Take her for a ride to the top of the world right now

To the top of the world

Gaelic Storm at Big Top!

For my birthday (8/10) I traveled to Bayfield, Wisconsin to see Gaelic Storm perform at Big Top Chautauqua. I wore my wellies and got on stage! It was a fabulous show.

On Saturday (8/12) I hit up the MN Irish Fair for more Gaelic Storm. Dancing was easier at this venue and more true fans were there to see GS.

When's the next GS show? Check out their website for a full listing. I'm looking ahead to the November shows in Eau Claire and Madison.

Click here to see more pictures from the show.

ever wonder?

Have you ever wondered why objects have certain names?
Take beds for example.
They are named King, Queen, Full, and Twin.
This does not make sense to me.
Shouldn't the Full and Twin be called Prince and Princess?

In case you wanted to know - I have a Prince.
