Sage Rosemary Parses Time

I'm ignoring today's wake up call, mainly because I don't think that there is ANYTHING from George Thorogood that will ever be profound. He's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. Now I really, really do need to change that radio station!  Instead, this has been dinging me since yesterday:


Foo Fighters

You got away got away got away from me
Now get away get away get away from me

I couldn't grow just living in the shadow
Where do you go when no one's following you?
You ran away ran away it was right on cue

Shall I go on and on and on and on and on and on again

Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are you are you are
Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are you are you are
Rosemary please pardon me

Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie
Youth ain't gonna change the way you die

Dear Rosemary
Dear Rosemary

You got away got away got away with things
You got away got away got away with things

False starts young hearts get shattered
Pick up the pieces coming down around you
You ran away ran away it was right on cue

Can I go on and on and on and on and on and on again

Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are you are you are
Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are you are you are
Rosemary please pardon me

Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie
Youth ain't gonna change the way you die

This was no ordinary life (This was no ordinary life)
This was no ordinary life (This was no ordinary life)

I'm here from now on
But once I'm gone
I'm gone

Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie
Youth ain't gonna change the way you die

Dear Rosemary (Dear Rosemary)
You're part of me (You're part of me)
Dear Rosemary (Dear Rosemary)
Please pardon me (Please pardon me)

Dear Rosemary

You got away got away got away from me
Now get away get away get away from me

This one's for my baby....There's not a lot of literal meaning in this song, hence the reason for the word 'Parses' in the title of this post. I can take each part of this song and interpret it to fit this given situation. I don't mean 'get away from me' in a mean sense, but Get Away from here...get out THERE and live some life that you're meant to live. Leave all the drama and the bullshit behind and just get to where you were meant to be.  Love you, Boo.  

I heard this song yesterday on the way to work and something just came over me and made me very sad.....I knew something wasn't right. So, maybe, that motherly intuition does actually work SOMETIMES. I've not always been the best specimen of motherhood, but one thing is for certain: I have always and will always love my children,without fail, and I will always be here for them if they should ever need me.  So, I would surmise that the Universe would kindly like to remind me, or you, once again, that you should always go with your gut.....it's not often wrong.
