I can’t sleep. The song Trog and Robin played last night is still echoing in my mind.

I think rest about rest the life we live, rest, I think rest about rest the life we give, rest, throw it away, rest, throw it away…

My mind wanders to Moonstruck when Nicholas Cage passionately tells Cher, we’re here to ruin ourselves. I chuckle to myself when I picture him pointing up the stairs and finishing with so Get In My Bed!

But what made me want to get up in the middle of the night and write this post is that I said all that last night and didn’t share Jason’s and Robin’s music with you. They’ve got a song on www.reverbnation.com. Once you get there — search for Robin Jackson. Then, you can feel the inspiration like I did.

After I posted this the first time, Trog sent me the lyrics by Abbey Lincoln. From up in my loft, writing, I didn’t get them just right — here they are:

Throw It Away
I think about the life I live
A figure made of clay
And think about the things I lost
The things I gave away

And when I’m in a certain mood
I search the house and look
One night I found these magic words
In a magic book

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day

And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

There’s a hand to rock the cradle
And a hand to help us stand
With a gentle kind of motion
As it moves across the land

And the hand’s unclenched and open
Gifts of life and love it brings
So keep your hand wide open
If you’re needing anything

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day

And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

Throw it away
Throw it away
Give your love, live your life
Each and every day

And keep your hand wide open
Let the sun shine through
‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you

‘Cause you can never lose a thing
If it belongs to you
You can never ever lose a thing
If it belongs to you

You can never ever lose a thing
If it belongs to you
You can never ever lose a thing
If it belongs to you
