I saw you today
She's lovely
You're such a heavenly pair
You hope and you pray
Someday she'll take you all the way there

You should know better, darling
When push comes to shove
Angels don't fall in love

You stand at the gate
Hoping to gain admission
How long are you willing to wait
She won't give permission tonight

You've got your higher aims
Got your ambitions
You think you're spiritual
And on some mission
Well, I can see it when I look in your eyes
When you think of love
You think of compromise
It's no big disgrace
There's no loss of grace
The trouble is there's always someone there to take your place
And the trouble is you don't believe that it's true
When the sun goes down there's something left for you
The trouble is I see you missing so much
While you're knocking on all the wrong doors
Looking for some angel's touch
You think she's everything you're dreaming of
The trouble is those angels never fall in love

that was always my favoritest Bangles song, back when i would listen to them fervently at age 12. *nostalgic sigh* i so wanted to be like Vicki Peterson when i grew up. all the songs she wrote and sang off of the Different Light cd were my absolute favorite. she was cool. she was tough. she wrote the best songs. she was highly underrated to my age 12 self, seeing as all the publicity and everything seemed to go towards Susanna Hoffs. even back then, i revered rawk stahs as demigods. how freaking AMAZING it would be, to be able to play guitar AND sing, AND have it be for a LIVING?!? *swoon* it was about a year later that i got my first guitar, from santa claus. i took guitar classes in high school (along with piano and like a day of choir)... i got a bass and learned how to play it.

...and promptly put down my guitar and bass for about 10 years.

now i find myself 28 years old, and not really any closer to my goal of rock stardom than i was then. *thinks* well, i HAVE written songs now, and i DO play solo acoustical shows in front of many drunks once a week (just not the last month or so..), so i guess i am a bit closer. i can even now have a bio that can say "aubrey, once the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for The Vacant Stairs..." which makes me feel pretty cool :)

this post is going WAY off on a tangent that i hadn't planned on ;) i had PLANNED on posting the lyrics to that song and stating that they will always remind me of Brian Olson, and how much i cared for him at the time, and how he had to run off and get married to someone 6 years his junior. but i'm not bitter. i don't THINK i'm as bitter as i used to be, anyway. i just.. get curious.. as to where he is now, how he's doing, etc.

but anyhoo. i must drink my coffee faster and get ready for work.

and remember my saying that i haven't been able to feel my big toe? it's now all nice and swollen underneath. really pretty like. *frowns at toe*

SO DO I!!! we haven't done squat with it yet, because i've been so busy (among other things).. hopefully, once i get moved out and can have space (and be living with one of them), then things will progress..

i miss collaborating with someone!

*huggles* My dreams fell through too, most at least. But look at it this way, at least you're making progress, some pople just give up.

yes.. i keep teetering towards it, then am drug from it once again, much like right now where i'm working too much and living in too cramped of conditions to focus well on my songwriting or playing.

i forsee myself doing something geered more towards it when i get out of here again...

we still need a band name
the other day i wrote "rainy day"
on a recipt at work.

I want a band name, to the point where I'm not sure I care too much what it is.
pair a month with an adjective, or an adjective with a day of the week,
lets do mad lib band name hunting soon.
it'll be interesting.
I have access to a kickass new camera, and the owner would even be willing to take pictures
soon,
we can make an area somewhere in the house.
instruments, girls, lighting, camera, lots and lots of makeup.

then i can make us a site.
even if i have to put "untitled girl band" or something as the "name"
hell "untitled Girl Band" aint so bad even.
