Daily Open Thread for Wednesday, Feb. 13: Calling You

Kathleen Allen Photography©

Here's your "Daily Open Thread" for Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013. Throughout your day, come tell us whatever your heart desires, talk about this week's wrestling or whatever else may be on your mind. Time spent here is guaranteed to be well worth it, no matter what we all chat about.

Here's your Daily Open Thread for Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013. As usual, come discuss whatever your heart desires, or unload the depths of your despair, we are here for you either way, for better or for worse. Whether you get bored at work, have something on your mind, or just want to chat with all your favorite lovely Cagesiders on any topic you want -- even some wrestling!

Today, I would like to share a video of a song I love, it gets stuck in your head, and if you have ever loved someone from long distance or who had to be away from you from time to time, this might touch your heart the way it does mine. This is yet another song I am sharing because it means something special to me and makes me think of that friend who is like a brother to me again, because there is no friend greater than one who makes the world not so difficult, just takes that away.

None of the videos for this song are really worth watching, except for this one, because it makes the best song ever, even better by accompanying it with Spanish lyrics and no other visuals to distract from the beauty of the piece. Once again, I bring to you a song by Justin Furstenfeld, with his band Blue October, "Calling You":

Enjoy ~


Then, after checking that out, you should be sure to scroll on down through the thread, make a comment or two -- or dozens; revisit it throughout the day (and night). You will likely enjoy some of the usual gems from your fellow Cagesiders, including:

Match of the Day, Music Video Link of the day, Babe of the day, Bro of the day, Alison Brie gif of the day, AJ Lee pic of the day, Photo Caption of the Day, and more!

This thread is not guaranteed to cheer up any form of blues you may have; but it will at least give you a venue to gripe about your work, your boss, your lesser half, the brats, heels or faces in your life, or the general public at large.

Or perhaps, this is a place where you can celebrate all the shit that makes you happy in this world. Maybe chat about someone who makes you feel like calling to ask them, "do you love me", just cause you love the way they make it sound when they say they really do, they actually love you.

Give it a go, or comment, or lurk... 'til your heart is content! Lyrics below the line for those who want to follow along...

"Calling You"

Justin Furstenfeld / Blue October

There's something that I can't quite explain...
I'm so in love with you!
You'll never take that away.
And if I've said it a hundred times before,
Expect a thousand more!
You'll never take that away.

Well expect me to be
Calling you to see,
If you're OKAY when I'm not around,
Asking "if you love me?"
I love the way you make it sound...
Calling you to see,
Do I try too hard to make you smile? --
To make us smile?

[Chorus:]
I will keep calling you to see...
If you're sleeping, are you dreaming?
If you're dreaming, are you dreaming of me?
I can't believe you actually picked me!

I thought that the world had lost it's sway;
It's so hard sometimes...
Then I fell in love with you...
Then came you...
And you took that away.
It's not so difficult,
The world is not so difficult!
You take away the old,
Show me the new --
And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you!
So, while I'm on this phone,
A hundred miles from home,
I'll take the words you gave me and send them back to you!

I only want to see,
If you're OKAY when I'm not around,
Asking "if you love me?"...
I love the way you make it sound!
Calling you to see,
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile?

[Chorus x3]

I love you my brother. I will be calling you to see...
