Happy Birthday, Sweet Sally Sue

October 04, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
When my sister Sally turned like 30 or something I put together an elaborate music video of photos of her life...I titled it "30 Years of Sally"....or something like that, and I think my Bro-Law still brings it up as a joke every now and then, and we get a good laugh out of it.

At the time Sally and Brad still lived in Alaska and we missed seeing them...before the days of FaceTime and Skype, photos were the only way we knew what they looked like.

I backed the photos with a song by The Nixons...it is one of my all time favourite songs and completely describes the relationship Sally and I have...SO today I say, "Happy Birthday, Sister."

Enjoy the song, again or for the first time.
 


 
Here I am again,
Overwhelming feelings
A thousand miles away
From your ocean home
Part of me is near

Thoughts of what we were invade
The miles that stand between
We can't separate
Your all I hoped you'd become

Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you

Fleeting visits pass
Still they satisfy
Reminders of the next
Overshadow goodbye
Our flames burn as one

Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you

All I am begins with you
Thoughts of hope understood
Half of me breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true

Here we are again saying goodbye
Still we fall asleep underneath the same sky
You're all I knew you'd become

Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you

Entwined, you and I
Our souls speak from across the miles
Intertwined, you and I
Our blood flows from the same inside
Half of me, breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true

I see you, I feel you
When I close my eyes
I see walking there...
I see you dancing in my mind
