Free Hugs

[Note: Scroll down to read the lyrics for "All the Same" by Sick Puppies and the YouTube video for the Free Hugs Campaign.]

Compared to last week, this week was alot better. Definitely! However, Friday went pretty badly and I ended up leaving work early (about 1pm) out of protest. Long story. Either way, I could sure use a hug right about now. How about you?

This awesome song is called "All the Same" by Sick Puppies. I found that I connected deeply with the lyrics of this song and it brought up alot of the emotions and memories that I mentioned before about Riverside. There were so many times back then when I felt so alone and I felt like I was abandoned by my friends.

A hug is the simplest form of physically expressing love, intimacy, and compassion. At times, that's all I ever wanted back then. Still do.

Here are the lyrics of the song . . . .

"All The Same" by Sick Puppies

I don't mind where you come from
As long as you come to me
I don't like illusions I can't see
Them clearly

I don't care no I wouldn't dare
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually
What you'll do

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long are you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same

Hours slide and days go by
Till you decide to come
However long you stay
Is all that I am

I don't mind...
I don't care...
As long are you're here

Go ahead tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's always the same

Go ahead say it you're leaving
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
And I'll take you for who you are
If you take me for everything
Do it all over again
It's all the same
