How many times

Reactions: 

Tonight I was listening to my music and let Winamp have it's way with me... eventually I had to backtrack and compile a playlist of what it had given me, first up was Kate Ryan, Eurosong 2006 entrant and How Many Times, sometimes I am amazed how this bit of software can read my mood... but change it as well! Music tames the restless heart. Here are the lyrics...
How many times - Kate Ryan

How many times
How many times
How many times
Is enough?
Uuhh...

How many times do I have to rise

and fall?
How many times?
How many times hit my head against

the wall?

I'm breaking the border of myself,
It's time that I learned from
The mistakes that has made
This never ending circle
Of just heartaches.

Now is the time,
To get it together and shine
Try to figure out of
Who I am, and what I want.

How many times do I have to rise

and fall?
Once again defeated,
How many times hit my head against

the wall?
'Till I find the secret,
So many nights that
I cried a thousand tears
For the one who turned out
Not to be the one
How many times is enough?

So I'm alone here once again,
Now I can hardly feel the pain,
Anymore, I'm broken,
But not scattered into pieces.

This life is mine,
Just have to stand up and fight,
Try to figure out of
Who I am, and what I want.

How many times do I have to rise

and fall?
Once again defeated,
How many times hit my head against

the wall?
'Till I find the secret,
So many nights that
I cried a thousand tears
For the one who turned out
Not to be the one
How many times is enough?

How many times is enough?
Oouuh...
How many times
How many times
How many times

Is enough?
How many times
How many times
How many times

Is enough?

How many times do I have to rise

and fall?
Once again defeated,
How many times hit my head against

the wall?
'Till I find the secret,
So many nights that
I cried a thousand tears
For the one who turned out
Not to be the one
How many times is enough?

How many times is enough?

Another Eurovision contestant was Nicki French, I love her version of Total Eclipse of the Heart a song made famous by Bonnie Tyler who is a three days and a year older than I am! She sure does not look that old! Gemini's Rule!

Eros Ramazzotti always seems to be able to lift my spirits along with Andain (who are working on a new album!) and the rest of the euphoric Trance music featured on the list... Something else about Andain... one of the members, David Penner is a Rocket Scientist! "Like Mavie and Josh, music is his first love, although he has his undergraduate degree in aeronautics and astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)." Awesome!
Summing up my thoughs... Today has been one of those rollercoaster days...
