song of the week: times like these

Jack Johnson is a singer-songwriter from the island of Hawaii. I'm dedicating this song from his second album, On and On, to the American people as they vote for the next President of the USA.

Vote wisely, America. The whole world is watching.



in times like these
in times like those
what will be will be
and so it goes
and it always goes on and on
and on and on it goes

and there's always been laughing, crying, birth, and dying
boys and girls with hearts that take and give and break
and heal and grow and recreate and raise and nurture
but then hurt from time to times like these
and times like those
what will be will be
and so it goes

and there will always be stop and go and fast and slow
action, reaction, sticks and stones and broken bones
those for peace and those for war
and god bless these ones not those ones
but these ones made times like these
and times like those
what will be will be
and so it goes
and it always goes on and on
and on and on it goes

but somehow i know it won't be the same
somehow i know it'll never be the same

i like jack johnson's laidback style. i play JJ tunes (i've got several of his songs in my mp3 player) whenever i feel the need to unwind :)
my favorite: banana pancakes

"when the whole world fits inside of your arms,
do you really need to pay attention to the alarm?
wake up slow mmm mmm wake up slow"

-my favorite lines from banana pancakes

and yeah, JJ is all kinds of awesome. :D
