I'm movin' on…
I've lived in this place and I know all the faces

they'll never allow me to change.
I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong
I'm movin' on.” – Rascal Flats, I’m Moving On

"After years of expensive education
A car full of books and anticipation
I'm an expert on Shakespeare and that's a hell of a lot
But the world don't need scholars as much as I thought
Maybe I'll go travelling for a year
Finding myself, or start a career
Could work the poor, though I'm hungry for fame
We all seem so different but we're just the same
Maybe I'll go to the gym, so I don't get fat
Aren't things more easy, with a tight six pack
Who knows the answers, who do you trust
I can't even seperate love from lust" -Jame Cullman, 20-something

"Maybe I am too young to keep good love from going wrong." - Jamie Cullman- Lover, you should have come over

"Things seem so illusionary, but its the corners of my mind that scare me."  -?, (comming soon)

"So, I am in the twilight of my youth
Not that I'm going to remember
And have you seen the moon tonight
Is it full?
Still burning its embers
The people dancing in the corner, they seem happy
But I am sad
I am still dancing in the coma of the drinks I just had
Can you recommend an education or drugs
Because I am bored with you already
And I am in the twilight of my youth
Not that I am going to remember
Dancing and slowly finding the truth"
--Ryan Adams, Anyone want to take me home?
