it is 'ALWAYS darkest before the dawn'

4

These are the last ones I’ll post. The flood is over, haha. I just wanted to take a minute to say how thankful I am. I’m thankful to you guys. I’m thankful for this love. I’m thankful for my ability to embrace change. I really believe that it’s always darkest before the dawn. Scarlet and Bobby were my sunrise.

And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It’s a fine romance but it’s left me so undone
It’s always darkest before the dawn

  I never saw you coming from inside my little prison,
          Your autograph would really buy me time.
                 If you think you are the reason,
               Give me something to believe in.
        It’s always darkest right before the dawn.
        It’s always darkest right before the dawn.

                   I confess I’ve lost control,
                      I let my guard down,
                        I let the truth out.
               Oh I confess I’ve lost control,
                      I let my guard down,
                        I let the truth out.

Shake It Out




Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues drawn
It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I’m always dragging that horse around

All of his questions, such a mournful sound
Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues drawn
But it’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart
‘Cause I like to keep my issues drawn
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It’s a fine romance but it’s left me so undone
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Oh whoa, oh whoa…

And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t
So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope
It’s a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat
'Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me, yeah

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa
And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh whoa

I was just at the bus stop, and this guy had his three kids with him. They were screaming and climbing the fences and running across the busway into the grass there. He kept telling them to stop and calm down but of course that didn’t stop them. I’ve never seen a dad more done in my whole life. I had to break my rules and smile at him to give him the courage and strength to carry on. Bus stop dad, be strong. It’s always darkest before the dawn.

Noelle, Tom: do not. fuck. this. up. You're finally together, dammit! :-P Great chapter. She's got that fear of true intimacy, of putting yourself out there and being hurt. And of course, self doubt is a helluva thing. And that mother, oy! X

Oh, yes…Nonners…let me tell you…you hit the nail on the head.  Poor Noelle has been hurt so many times, there’s not much to take before she believes it will happen again. She’s finally back with Tom again, which makes her believe she has been set up for a downfall once more….

Self doubt is a mother-f’er, ain’t it??? Let’s hope that someone has a clear head in all of this!  As always, my deepest gratitude for sending me a note and telling me you enjoyed the chapter and this crazy story as we keep on going!  Thank you!! xoxoxoxxo
