Song of the Night

I've been listening to this song over and over today and have written 8 pages.

We Belong by Pat Benatar

We belong, we belong to the light
Many times I’ve tried to tell you
Many times I’ve cried alone
Always I’m surprised how well you
Cut my feelings to the bone

Don’t want to leave you really
I’ve invested too much time
To give you up that easy
To the doubts that complicate your mind


We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We’ve both fallen under
Whatever we deny or embrace
For worse or for better
We belong, we belong
We belong together

Maybe it’s a sign of weakness
When I don’t know what to say
Maybe I just wouldn’t know
What to do with my strength anyway
Have we become a habit
Do we distort the facts
Now there’s no looking forward
Now there’s no turning back
When you say


Close your eyes and try to sleep now
Close your eyes and try to dream
Clear your mind and do your best
To try and wash the palette clean
We can’t begin to know it
How much we really care
I hear your voice inside me
I see your face everywhere
Still you say


From the album tropico
Written by: d. navarro & r. lowen

Mary, I hear Shadows of the Night on the radio and take it as a sign to continue with my current WIP. But I love Pat Benatar, wanted to be like her when I was younger.

I have Shadows of the Night on my iTunes, too. Do you know that Pat is touring with her EX husband Neil? I would love to see her. I would love even more to be behind the scenes to see how they interact!

The song tonight is "Point of No Return." I may change my title....

We saw Pat Benetar in concert a few years ago at an outdoor venue here along with several other older bands, and she kicked butt! Now I have "Love is a Battlefield" in my head. That song rocks.

My dh about died when I bought a bunch of Pat Benatar from iTunes. I bet that would have been a fun concert, though!

MicheleKS said...

Her ex? But they'd been together for, like, forever.

Gives new meaning to the term 'chemistry on stage'. And off.

I know, right, Michele?
