J.Lynn Johnston's Blahg!

I love my life! You should too…

I Wrote This Song A Long Time Ago… “Stay”


-Sometimes lyrics ring true all over again, with new depth and even heavier meaning… This song, and the bridge portion especially, will always stand out as one of the favorite things I’ve ever written.

Stay
by Mad at Gravity (2001 acoustic demo)

I can feel you pull away
And it’s just as I lean in
And the timing leaves me wide open

With a miss I am betrayed
Slices right through my thick skin
Yet I seek another hide

I’m asking you to
Stay
In my arms
Wait
You’re breaking me apart

And I’m out here on a limb
But I’m holding out my hand
Hoping you can make the climb with me

And I’m carving in the bark
Dropping down to where you stand
Trying silence on for size

I’m asking you to
Stay
In my arms
Wait
You’re breaking me apart

I miss you in my fingers, and valleys in between.
It’s odd how feelings linger for something yet unseen.
There’s ages between my heart and my mouth.
My veins throb with that which I can’t spit out.
Now I don’t need much. Just presence in mind
And the assurance your ache matches mine.

Stay.
Please don’t pull away from me.

Love and newfound meaning,
=j.lynn

MeToday February 9th, 2009 – SNOW Wake-Up!


SNOW on the Central Coast of California!

Such a cool and unexpected morning surprise! It was about 37 degrees outside, so it wasn’t sticking very well… But it snowed for about two hours before it turned back into rain and slushed itself away.

That car is dark blue. The roof beyond is brick red. It’s almost like REAL snow! Not just no-stick slush stuff!

Too cool for this California boy!

Love and flakes,
