> I like that song Spoc I have never heard it to my knowledge which is rare as I am a music freak....It has a deep meaning in many ways. Thank you :)

This should take you right to the option of playing a sample of it -- just to get the tune in your head because you must have heard it. Stands the test of time! Unfortunately with this song it starts out with him just whistling but you should still recognize it if you've heard it. (When you click to play it, if you get an option to upgrade your media player or whatever, you can probably say no and it'll still work. I did.)

lyrics


So leave your taxi waiting
And turn and close my door
And sit back down where you were sitting
A little closer then before

When you look that serious
It just makes me want you more
And I've been meaning to tell you

The closer you get, the better I feel
The closer you are, the more I see
Why everyone says THAT I look happier
When you're around
The closer you get, the better I feel

And yes I know you're nervous
Never seen you so unsure
You haven't touched your food tonight
And you're drinking more and more

And there's no need to hurry
Take you're time I'll still be here
And I've been meaning to tell you

The closer you get, the better I feel
The closer you are, the more I see
Why everyone says THAT I look happier
When you're around

We've been circling for time baby
We're coming down to land tonight
The wait is over and now it's easy
Everything is fine

The closer you get, the better I feel
The closer you are, the more I see
Why everyone says THAT I look happier
When you're around

The better I feel, the closer you get
The better you see, the closer you are
The better I see, why everyone says

-------
With 'Stranger' it's really just the words that blow me away, not the tune...I guess because it's not that frequent but wow, have I "seen the stranger" in MYSELF in relationships at times! I'm all over the place with the older stuff, much of it not THAT old but some even older. From Johnny Mathis, Etta James and Natalie Cole; to Enya, K.D. Lang and Harry Connick Jr.; to Bob Marley, the Jayhawks, Cracker and The The; to Beck, the Smiths and Collective Soul; to Alice in Chains, Live, Soundgarden, even Nine Inch Nails ('Head Like a Hole' EP)... Oh and I *love* 80s rock too, techno and regular; and lots of "urban" dance and soul music of course... Don't get me started!!!

Hey, have you heard of a band called Poi Dog Pondering? Depends where you are, either "Hell yes" or "huh??" Anyway get the 2 CD set called 'Liquid White Lightning' -- just *do* it!!! It's all kinds of music rolled into one, very soulful yet energizing. Also here's one you might have a hard time finding but from what you've said I know you'd adore it too --'Fireflies' by Ruby Grass (no, not country). Then come back here and thank me -- you will, I promise!

<<<<<<<I believe that the song is on-topic to Fallen, as well as others she mentions, even if she doesn't always state the tie-in in each post. My logic on that is (and a big part of my job is putting 2 + 2 together) that while I haven't read all her posts by any means, I have never heard her gushing about men in general, love in general, or eroticism in general. It has all been about her T, and I am sure that's who she truly is thinking of whenever she refers to any kind of longing.

I am probably the one who needs to watch whether I am on-topic in this thread. I was getting into a general musical discussion theme, so I will watch that. I haven't read all of the posts on this thread either, but from what I have seen I do think Fallen always meant to be on-topic, although I may have sidetracked her for a couple of sentences here and there! : )

H.W.C. BY LIZ PHAIR

Give it to me, don't give it away
Don't think about what the others say
My skins getting clear, my hairs so bright
All you do is **** me every day and night

You're my secret beauty routine
Na, na, na, na, what my body has seen
I am lookin' good and I'm feeling nice
Baby you're the best magazine advice

Gimme your hot white ***
Gimme your hot white ***
Gimme your hot white ***
Gimme your hot white ***

I'm gonna pull you back down between the sheets
Everything is fresher when the day is sweet
In the morning light when you're already on the phone

Face it, one of these days
Without you I'm just another Dorian Gray
It's the fountain of youth
It's the meaning of life
So hot, so sweet, so wet my appetite

Gimme your hot white ***
Gimme your hot white ***
Gimme your hot white ***
Gimme your hot white ***

Face it, one of these days
Without you I'm just another Dorian Gray

You are an obsession
I cannot sleep
I am a possession
Unopened at your feet
There is no balance
No equality
Be still
I will not accept defeat

I will have you
Yes I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me

I feed you I drink you
My day and my night
I need you I need you
By sun or candlelight
You protest you want to leave
Stay there's no alternative

Your face appears again
I see the beauty there
But I see danger
Stranger beware
A circumstance in your naked dream
Your affection is not what it seems

You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me

My fantasy has turned to madness
All my goodness has turned to badness
My need to posess you has consumed my soul
My life is trembling I have no control

I will have you
Yes I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me
You are an obsession
You're my obsession
Who do you want me to be
To make you sleep with me

Yeah, I know this is REALLY late, but I just wanted to add this song by Hoobastank. What does Hoobastank mean, I wonder? Anyway, this comes from a person who has been kinda mean to their T:

The Reason


I'm not a perfect person
As many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why i need you to hear

I've found a resaon for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You [x4]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

Nice song!

I think that they are saying that he has hurt someone, and she is leaving. But that he really didn't want to hurt her, and has decided that she is important enough for him to reconsider things that he always thought were true about himself. She's not coming back, but he now realizes that he never wants to do that to anyone again. So he has decided to change something in his personality - in the way he *is*, the way he has always seen himself, something that he always believed to be true. He will change because she has shown him that the way that he was, led to pain (for both of them), and he doesn't want to cause that pain again. So she has taught him a valuable lesson, and he is growing as a result.

I think the song talks about how we do have the power and ability to change who we are if we decide that we don't like who we have become. That we can choose to be different, and not repeat the things we have done in the past. It is also a sad reminder that often we don't realize that we need to change ourselves until we have hurt someone who is important to us. But even if they were hurt badly enough to leave, we still can, and should, change ourselves for *our* future and the future of others we will know.

Analyzing songs is not something that I do very often, and this is the first time that seeing lyrics was enough to motivate me to find a way to hear the song. I like the message a lot.

Thanks for introducing me to this song!

Thanks for your post! It made me smile to see someone (especially you) had responded.

Rereading my post, I think I made it sound like the person writing it was writing about being mean to their therapist... what I meant was that I am often that way to mine, so this song really spoke to me.

Your interpretation is right in line with mine. Thanks for posting that!

More therapy/termination songs

Posted by lonelygirl on May 20, 2004, at 18:26:45

I know several people already posted their songs about therapy/their T's on this thread:

http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/psycho/20040321/msgs/328055.html

...But I thought I'd reopen the subject. Another song that makes me think of my (now "former") psychologist is "There You'll Be" by Faith Hill (from the Pearl Harbor soundtrack) - lyrics below. Of course, lately, pretty much every song has made me think of him! Most of them are love/breakup songs, but you know, I love him, so they fit! I might make myself a whole mix CD of these songs. I think this one is particularly fitting, though.

Anybody want to add to the list?


There You'll Be
by Faith Hill
(Click below to listen/watch the video -- click the link that says "There You'll Be" under "VIDEO")
http://search.launch.yahoo.com/search/lsearch/video?p=there+you%27ll+be+faith+hill

When I think back on these times,
And the dreams we left behind,
I'll be glad 'cause I was blessed to get
To have you in my life

When I look back on these days,
I look and see your face,
You were right there for me

Chorus:
In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky
In my heart there'll always be a place for you,
For all my life
I'll keep a part of you with me,
And everywhere I am there you'll be,
and everywhere I am there you'll be

Well you showed me how it feels,
To feel the sky within my reach,
And I always will remember all
The strength you gave to me
Your love made me make it through,
Ohh I owe so much to you,
You were right there for me

(Chorus)

'Cause I always saw you in my light, my strength,
And I want to thank you now for all the ways
You were right there for me, you were right there for me,
Always

(Chorus)

Hi. New poster here. I am toying the idea of telling my therapist I love her and was looking on the web for "therapist 'i love you'" which is how I ended up here.

I don't have any romantic feelings for my therapist (if she was a he I'd offer to have his children by now, which is why I chose a female therapist).

I've been going to therapy since April. I had all my feelings repressed. I've gone to other therapists before - the last one would pick her nails and yawn during therapy. I thank G-D I've found this one. This one is just brilliant. She slowly gained my trust and walked at my own pace. Instead of me just doing what she wanted, she allowed me to do things I wanted also. For example, instead of talking I would bring in writings (3-8 pages) and she would read it. When I brought it to other therapists they would put it aside and tell me to just talk about it. This one read it during therapy then read it on her own time also and took notes.

So, she finally got me to READ ALOUD something I wrote this last session and it's like the floodgates are open. I can't wait to go back. I feel like I have so much to say now.

One of the things I want to say is that I love her. Something like "I wanted to say I love you. Not in a romantic way, not in a sexual way, it's pure unadulterated love from one human being to another." I've NEVER told anyone, not even my parents, that I love them (without them telling me first, like a "I love you" "I love you too" and it's usually mumbled and it's only been about 10 times in my life). This is the first I would be initiating the exchange, and I can't think of a better person to do it with (I love my parents too and hope to work out to the point that I tell THEM that I love them but I'm not at that point yet).


So, what are your thoughts? It's something I feel that I should do. Could it backfire? I also was planning on flat-out asking her if she thinks hugs initiated by clients towards therapists are inappropriate and if she no, plan on hugging her after every session. We've hugged 3-4 times before but she always initiated it and it was ackward because I suck at hugging :p

Soooo..... what are your thoughts?

In April I had a major surgery. I saw my therapist the day before my surgery. As I was walking out the door from my session and I looked at her and said, "If I die and you don't see me again, please know I have grown to love you". She looked at me and said, "Thank you, that really makes me feel good".
I think it's very ok to share your feelings with your therapist if you are able.

> Hi. New poster here. I am toying the idea of telling my therapist I love her and was looking on the web for "therapist 'i love you'" which is how I ended up here.

> I don't have any romantic feelings for my therapist (if she was a he I'd offer to have his children by now, which is why I chose a female therapist).

> I've been going to therapy since April. I had all my feelings repressed. I've gone to other therapists before - the last one would pick her nails and yawn during therapy. I thank G-D I've found this one. This one is just brilliant. She slowly gained my trust and walked at my own pace. Instead of me just doing what she wanted, she allowed me to do things I wanted also. For example, instead of talking I would bring in writings (3-8 pages) and she would read it. When I brought it to other therapists they would put it aside and tell me to just talk about it. This one read it during therapy then read it on her own time also and took notes.

> So, she finally got me to READ ALOUD something I wrote this last session and it's like the floodgates are open. I can't wait to go back. I feel like I have so much to say now.
>
> One of the things I want to say is that I love her. Something like "I wanted to say I love you. Not in a romantic way, not in a sexual way, it's pure unadulterated love from one human being to another." I've NEVER told anyone, not even my parents, that I love them (without them telling me first, like a "I love you" "I love you too" and it's usually mumbled and it's only been about 10 times in my life). This is the first I would be initiating the exchange, and I can't think of a better person to do it with (I love my parents too and hope to work out to the point that I tell THEM that I love them but I'm not at that point yet).

> So, what are your thoughts? It's something I feel that I should do. Could it backfire? I also was planning on flat-out asking her if she thinks hugs initiated by clients towards therapists are inappropriate and if she no, plan on hugging her after every session. We've hugged 3-4 times before but she always initiated it and it was ackward because I suck at hugging :p

> Soooo..... what are your thoughts?
