    This is going to sound really cheesy but here goes...

    Just sat in the spare room looking out the window at the stars and moon for ages
    And I found myself wondering if the people I was thinking about where maybe looking at them too.
    So do you ever look at the stars and wonder if someone you miss is looking at them too?

    Yes. Once. it was a very sad time in my life but I somehow bumbled through it.

    I had 2 songs that I would play on my headphones every night whilst looking at the moon and stars, neither of which I had really 'loved' before.

    Imagine that someone you love is so very far away, and there is nothing you can do about it. At work, you're a hairdresser, but at nights you're just counting the days till they return.

    My 2 songs were:

    Abba - If it wasn't for the nights


    [youtube_browser]gQqbljOc1NA[/youtube_browser]

    I got appointments, work I have to do
    Keepin' me so busy all the day through
    They're the things that keep me from thinkin' of you
    Oh baby, I miss you so, I know I'm never gonna make it
    Oh, I'm so restless, I don't care what I say
    And I lose my temper ten times a day
    Still it's even worse when the night's on its way
    It's bad, oh, so bad

    Somehow I'd be doin' alright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
    I'd have courage left to fight if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
    How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
    Sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
    (Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
    Somehow I'd be doin' alright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

    No-one to turn to, you know how it is
    I was not prepared for something like this
    Now I see them clearly, the things that I miss
    Oh baby, I feel so bad, I know I'm never gonna make it
    I got my business to help me through the day
    People I must write to, bills I must pay
    But everything's so different when night's on its way
    It's bad, oh, so bad

    Somehow I'd be doing alright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
    I'd have courage left to fight if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
    How I fear the time when shadows start to fall
    Sittin' here alone and starin' at the wall
    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
    (Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
    Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)

    If it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)
    if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)

    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights
    (Even I could see a light I think that I could make it)
    Guess my future would look bright if it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

    If it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could make it)
    If it wasn't for the nights
    (If it wasn't for the nights I think that I could take it)

    Even I could see a light if it wasn't for the nights

    and Steps - Deeper Shade of Blue

    [youtube_browser]0RtjfvK7rXw[/youtube_browser]

    Into each life some rain must fall
    I didn't know I would catch it all
    The clear skies have gone
    And you with them too
    It's not the same now without you
    I used to say you're so beautiful
    But it didn't change a thing at all
    There's nowhere to run
    Got nowhere to hide
    I can't forget you and I've tried, but...

    I'm a deeper shade of blue
    And there's nothing I can do
    You're so far, far away
    Yeah, I'm a darker shade of me
    And I just can't be free
    You're so far, far away
    You're so far away

    Into each life some sun must shine
    Well someone else must be getting mine
    The days are so empty
    Night's are so long
    Awaking to find again that you've gone
    I used to say you were wonderful
    Now I just wonder where you are
    It's easy to say memories fade
    But I'm still missing you
    Nothing's changed ... and

    I'm a deeper shade of blue
    And there's nothing I can do
    You're so far, far away
    Yeah, I'm a darker shade of me
    And I just can't be free
    You're so far, far away
    You're so far away

    Summer is over
    And all we are is apart
    The nights are so cold now
    Without you in my heart

    I'm a deeper shade of blue
    And there's nothing I can do
    You're so far, far away
    Yeah, I'm a darker shade of me
    And I just can't be free
    You're so far, far away
    You're so far away

    They come back in the end xxx

    And you forget about these types of songs until someone starts a thread years later on a petforum that puts you right back at the window with those headphones on.

    You'll get through it. Promise.

    Aha sorry didn't mean to drag up bad memories :eek:

    Ahh some of the people I was thinking about sadly won't ever be coming back :( But it's nice to think that they might be looking at the stars too and for that one moment you're connected again.
    Some of them even are the stars looking down, cheesy, but its what I like to believe.
    I guess people have their good days and their bad days :)

    They weren't bad memories. xxx They are good memories. Those nights looking through the window and thinking fondly of the ones I missed so badly as the starry nightscape lulled me to sleep. It all reminds me of everything else I was doing at the time and the people who were in my life. xx

    You can never say never about people coming back into your life. ;)

    And for the ones who are now stars looking down, I like to reflect and think about what I learned from that person during their time here, and the choices they would have made if they were facing the dilemmas I feel I am facing at that particular time.

    People have their good days and bad days, but looking at the stars and getting a bit weepy to some music is (in my books) a good day. It's fond to have the memories. The people aren't really gone whilst you still have those.

    xx

    That is actually one of the most inspiring posts I have ever read and totally changed my outlook on it.
    You have such a positive outlook on things! I'm envious I can be such a pessimist at times! :eek:

    I love ABBA!

    Not really, but I often imagine other peoples' lives and what they're thinking/places they're going to when I pass them or are facing them going in opposite directions when I'm driving.

    Sometimes. I used to date a guy who lived in California and I had come back to the UK to live, we used to always look at the moon at the same time of day and think about each other, this was long before email and skype, snail mail was our only form of contact or expensive phonecalls back then. Trouble was because we're further ahead in hours it meant I was quite often looking at it the moon in the early hours of the morning, and I'm definitely not a night owl :cryin:

    That relationship is long over now, but occasionally I still look at the moon and think of him......

    I do sometimes look at the moon and stars and think about like in general though.

    I never, ever do this..:D generally speaking dont care enough to miss people.
    I do alternate between 2 thoughts when looking up at the stars and moon though,
    "wouldnt it be cool if there were aliens" and
    "wouldnt it be cool if I was a werewolf"
    :eek:

    I do it :)

    i tend to do it more when im on holiday, when i was in santorini in 07 we were very close to the beach, and becuase it was a really quiet area i would walk down sit on the beach and stare at the sky while listening to the sea :)

    I always love to look at the moon and stars, but most the time, I am just staring in awe at them.

    I love it when theres a full moon shining acorss the tops of clouds floating by, its just amazing !!!

    I sometimes, but not often, wonder who else will be looking up at the moon at the same time and what they might be thinking ... the homeless, the rich, people with tears in their eyes, people smiling etc etc I`m always the one who is looking up and smiling :D
    When you have something that beautiful looking down at you, there aint much to be sad about, life is about living after all

    I'm always looking up at the stars.
    I get so emotional, but it kinda brings me to a happy place.
