Since I Fell for You

“So dear I love him, that with him all deaths I could endure, without him live no life.”

- John Milton
(09 Dec 1608 - 08 Nov 1674)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Hmmm - freaky frigid weather, insane scary news from all corners, sad brokenhearted song - it all fits.....

BONUS - - Since I Fell for You - Barbra Streisand


"Since I Fell for You" is a jazz and pop standard. The blues ballad was composed by Buddy Johnson in 1945 and was first popularized by his sister, Ella Johnson, with Buddy Johnson and His Orchestra. The biggest hit version was recorded by Lenny Welch in 1963, reaching number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.[1]

Thoughts Are Things

I hold it true that thoughts are things;
They're endowed with bodies and breath and wings;
And that we send them forth to fill
The world with good results, or ill.
That which we call our secret thought
Speeds forth to earth's remotest spot,
Leaving its blessings or its woes
Like tracks behind it as it goes.
We build our future thought by thought,
For good or ill, yet know it not.
Yet, so the universe was wrought.
Thought is another name for fate;
Choose, then, thy destiny and wait,
For love brings love and hate brings hate.

~~Henry Van Dyke

Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.
Proverbs 4:23

   Thank you, Shari! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

As a group of soldiers stood in formation at an Army Base, the Drill Sergeant barked, "All right! All you idiots, fall out."

As the rest of the squad wandered away, one soldier remained at attention. The Drill Instructor walked over until he was eye to eye with him, and then raised a single eyebrow.

The soldier smiled and said, "Sure was a lot of 'em, huh, sir?"

Since I Fell for You

Written by Buddy Johnson, 1945
(10 Jan 1915 – 09 Feb 1977)

When you just give love, and never get love,
you'd better let love depart.

I know it's so, and yet I know,
I can't get you out of my heart.

You made me leave my happy home.
You took my love, and now you've gone,
since I fell for you ...

Love brings such misery and pain.
I guess I'll never be the same,
since I fell for you ...

Well it's too bad, and it's too sad,
but I'm in love with you ...

You love me, then you snub me.
But what can I do, I'm still in love with you.

Well, I guess I'll never see the light.
I get the blues most every night,
since I fell for you ...

Since I fell for you.
