Cups

Music is something that is very calming to me {most of the time...when it isn't "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" on loop in the car with screaming kids} Most of the time I can listen to a song and it can make the think of something. Throughout deployment there have been a few songs that have meant something to me for one reason or another. While I'm getting pictures up and organized I figured I'd take this opportunity to remember the past few months through music. 

When Lane shaved Boris, he did it with music in the background {and yes, he video'd the act so I could see it happen since our times are so different.} He shaved his first mustache {he still has Boris Jr. growing strong!} and now every time I hear this song I think of Boris. And I hear the song often because it happens to be one of the frequent requests of Eden's.

"Cups (You're Gonna Miss Me)"


I've got my ticket for the long way 'round
Two bottle whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
Oh, I'm leaving tomorrow. What do you say?

When I'm gone (when I'm gone)
When I'm gone (when I'm gone)
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my hair
You're gonna miss me everywhere,
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

I've got my ticket for the long way 'round
The one with the prettiest view

It's got mountains, it's got rivers
It's got woods that give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

When I'm gone (when I'm gone)
When I'm gone (when I'm gone)
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my walk
You'll miss me by my talk
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

I've got my ticket for the long way 'round
These feet weren't built to stay too long
And I'll go there on my own
But you'll miss me when you're home
It's for you, dear, that I sing this song

When I'm gone (when I'm gone)
When I'm gone (when I'm gone)
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my hair
You're gonna miss me everywhere
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

When I'm gone
When I'm gone
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

You're gonna miss me by my walk
You'll miss me by my talk
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
