Requiem for House Beautiful

That Charming was such a tease-leading me along, making me picture how good we'd be together, whispering sweet nothings, asking me to love him and then telling me I can't have him because after all, he's unavailable. In the end, it was worse than hearing, "oh, by the way, I'm married. Will that be a problem?" He broke my heart and left me without a plan. While thinking about this bad boy house, I kept hearing this in my head:

I'm so tired of being alone,
I'm so tired of on-my-own,
won't you help me, girl,
just as soon as you can.
People say that I've found a way,
to make you say,
that you love me.
But baby,
you didn't go for that,
me, it's a natural fact,
that I wanna come back,
show me where it's at, baby.

I'm so tired of being alone,
I'm so tired of on-my-own,
won't you help me, girl,
just as soon as you can.
I guess you know that I, uh,
love you so,
even though,
you don't want me no more,
hey, hey, hey, I'm cryin' tears,
all through the years,
I tell you like it is,
honey, love me if you can.

Ya baby,
tired of being alone here by myself,
I tell ya, I'm tired baby,
I'm tired of being all wrapt up late at night,
in my dreams, nobody but you, baby.
Sometimes I wonder,
if you love me like you say you do,
You see baby, I've been thinking about you,
I've been wanting to get next to you, baby,
Sometimes I hold my arms and I say,
Mmmmm hmmmm hmmmm,
O baby, needing you has proven to me,
to be my greatest dream.

I'm so tired of being alone,
I'm so tired of on-my-own,
...Sometimes late at night I get to wonderin' about you baby,
Baby, baby, ya...

Can you hear the music? No? Try this:

As an aside to my daughter, every time I hear this song, I think of a certain girl singing this karaoke style on the way to Chicago.

Sorry it didn't work out. Good luck with the search.

There will be something better out there waiting for you

Oh Lord, honey, that is one hell of a Hanger House. Probably a professional...
I hope you get through this without psychological scarring. Well, I hope that for all of us:>) I don't know how many times I can get my hopes up like that. Keep truckin'!(and posting the photos!)

Rudee said...

Distracted, I've been making a list for the realtor today. She preempted me on one by telling me it was a dump. It didn't look like one from the outside. Sigh. Someone else's needy house is the last thing I need. No rebound relationships for me. No thanks.

flydragon said...

Well, poop. Probably about what you said too, right?
Okay... next charming coming right up.

Gail said...

There is a reason, the perfect is waiting.

Brenda said...

Double poop! Are you packed yet? The best one will be ready next week. I saw it in my crystal ball.

Renie Burghardt said...

Awww, too bad, Rudee. I remember a house I wanted so badly a while ago, and it just didn't work out. I still think about it and how it would have felt living in it. But I did get a great house later, that I loved. Keep looking, and you'll find one you love just as much.

debra said...

Well, I wouldn't say poop (since that is what I have in the basement---day #2) but I will say so sorry. The right one will come along...

laurie said...

you'll see. you'll get something better. i swear.
what's your deadline again?

Rudee said...

OK. I'll stop worrying. (That's a lie.)

Laurie, I have 34 days to be out of this house, but who's counting. Can you hear me screaming from Detroit?

laurie said...

rudee, if you have to, rent a month or two. you need to wait for the right house.

Sandy said...

That took me way back!! Darn...about the house.

Betty Flocken said...

Well I LOVED that song in my youth!!! Sorry about the house.
