This is my attempt to sort out the last few years and make some sense of them. I'm moving away from Calgary, my "home" for the last 6 years and I wanted to signify it with some music... here goes:

Rocketman- Stewie is hilarious and I'm a Family Guy addict. Besides, taking the piss out of William Shatner is a national pasttime.
Song 2- I started my party career in Calgary and this was one of the first songs I got smashed to. Isn't that sweet?
Pictures of Me- For all those I could save and for the one I couldn't.
Drive- I finally started taking control of my life, my thoughts and my beliefs.
Freefalling- "The Good Girls are home with broken hearts..."
Fell In Love With A Girl- I didn't fall in love with a girl, but I was the girl in the song at one point.
Home for a Rest- February 2001... I only remember mornings and pain. Well-earned pain... I think...
Weapon- Alienation and anger, the dark undercurrent of having so little control.
Drive- More anger and alienation...
Wish I Had A River- Alienation, less anger... missing what home gave you and just wanting to be somewhere else.
You Don't Know Me- Frustration at not being seen and loved for who I was. Happened more than I care to admit.
Fields of Gold- Wanting the perfect love so bad that it hurt.
Love Never Lies- But being in love seemed to hurt more.
Fallin- And more.
Try- And even more.
Man on the Side- Being the woman on the side and having someone else on a few occaisions. Telling yourself you can't be that person anymore.
Come Pick Me Up- A goodbye note to an ex or two. One who did steal my records, one who schooled my friends (who are full of shit)... gotta love Ryan.
Serial Joe- More frustration/anger and feeling like a big mistake.
Smooth Criminal- I had my bike stolen. Totally unrelated, but I also have a cover fetish.
Time- The realization that things are changing and life is moving onward.
Power of Goodbye- There is a power to taking the onus to get away from what makes you unwell.
*The last song is my boyfriend doing a "Tortured" version of Fatbottom Girls... cos that's where I'm supposed to be... Love you sweetie and just a few more days and I'm in your arms....
