Once in a lifetime



And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful
Wife
And you may ask yourself-well...how did I get here?

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

Water dissolving...and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? ...am I wrong?
And you may tell yourself
My god!...what have I done?

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

So here I am in Sunny California with a pretty cool job,
my manager is way cool, and the pay is alot better...it is so hard not to look back at all we had and all we did. But then I think..if I hadn't come out here I would've never known huh?
So the day turns and I realize that for every door that closes another one opens.
I'm getting pretty good at sales and my skin grows thicker..I now keep my heart in a box in my bedroom and took it off my sleeve. The Professors are doing well and intending to go to the studio soon for a full length CD.. I will be shipping them out to family and friends in Michigan when they are through. Don't know what the cost will be yet..depends on studio cost and production cost.
That about covers it...taking kids to the beach or the park or the zoo..Delaney and Garrett are in an after school program that does different sports and scavenger hunts about everyday. Going to sign Garrett up for Jujitsu soon and Delaney is going to take tennis lessons. Payton is growing up at an alarming rate..I wish she could stay little forever...she'll be 3 in a week. Michelle started a job in a new salon that totally rocks..she started last week and already has like 9 new clients I believe. We are ready for some visitors whenever you want to come see us.
I am so homesick that I am kinda going insane a bit...it sucks when this blog, trivia and mcsites are the only lifeline to the best friends in the world. I never ever think about home because it makes me crazy... I get all bummed out thinking I should've never left which brings me back to
if I didn't I would've never known thing. I guess we go forward from here..keep your eyes on the prize..when I lock down a couple monster deals we will come home and visit...until then...we are over here wishing we were over there..and you guys are over there wishing we weren't over here. Great song title..I'll work on that.
We still miss everyone at home more than ever...We are settling in but it's because we have to not because we want to.
Take care and for those of you I play trivia with...I'd rather be playing at a table across from you so I could smack you in the liver when you beat me by 4 seconds.

We miss you too. I have faith you will return. I pray every night. What!?

Your right... I don't pray. I believe when you pray you are talking to yourself and people think you're crazy when you do that. ;-)

Sounds like you guys are doing well, but still lonely. It's tough to be surrounded by millions of people and still feel alone. Your names almost always comes up, at least once, when we are around the campfire. The campfires just aren't the same without you guys.

Hope you guys stay happy and healthy, and we'll see ya when we see ya.

Oh! And by the way... I beat ya by one question and 18 seconds today. :D
