    Time in a bottle.

    If I could save time in a bottle I tell you what I would like to do.

    Queen- We are the Champions, or Bohemian Rhapsody. Great lyrics if you listen. Written by Faroukk Bulsara aka Freddie Mercury.

    I recognize this as the theme song from the "Billyjack" movies. Who wrote it?

    This was a wonderful stroll down memory lane....so many great songs! Thanks to Merrylouw for "Today" which was the song we danced to at our wedding, nearly 40 years ago. Nice memories! Now these songs will be in my head for the rest of the day!

    Sorry for the error I think the Beatles sing this on the Sgt. Pepper album--Definitely a John Lennon song.

    And the perfect one: Letting go by Suzy Bogguss:

    She'll take the painting in the hallway,
    The one she did in jr. high
    And that old lamp up in the attic,
    She'll need some light to study by.

    She's had 18 years to get ready for this day
    She should be past the tears, she cries some anyway

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    Mother sits down at the table
    So many things she'd like to do
    Spend more time out in the garden
    Now she can get those books read too.

    She's had 18 years to get ready for this day
    She should be past the tears, she cries some anyway.

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    Oh oh letting go
    There's nothing in the way now,
    Oh letting go, there's room enough to fly
    And even though, she's spent her whole life waiting,
    It's never easy letting go.

    "You're Gonna Miss This" by Trace Adkins
    She was staring out that window, of that SUV
    Complaining, saying I can't wait to turn 18
    She said I'll make my own money, and I'll make my own rules
    Mamma put the car in park out there in front of the school
    Then she kissed her head and said I was just like you

    You're gonna miss this
    You're gonna want this back
    You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
    These are some good times
    So take a good look around
    You may not know it now
    But you're gonna miss this

    Before she knows it she's a brand new bride
    In a one-bedroom apartment, and her daddy stops by
    He tells her It's a nice place
    She says It'll do for now
    Starts talking about babies and buying a house
    Daddy shakes his head and says Baby just slow down

    'Cause You're gonna miss this
    You're gonna want this back
    You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
    These are some good times
    So take a good look around
    You may not know it now
    But you're gonna miss this

    Five years later there's a plumber workin' on the water heater
    Dog's barkin', phone's ringin'
    One kid's cryin', one kid's screamin'
    She keeps apologizin'
    He says they don't bother me
    I've got 2 babies of my own
    One's 36, one's 23
    Huh, it's hard to believe

    But you're gonna miss this
    You're gonna want this back
    You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
    These are some good times
    So take a good look around
    You may not know it now
    But you're gonna miss this
    You're gonna miss this
    Yeah, you're gonna miss this
    I loved the lyrics to both songs. The letting go one is wonderful and I just had to let go of my "Mommy". She passed away Jan1st at the age of 93 and it was hard to let go. For a college quilt the "Letting Go" lyrics would be great

    From Dan Fogelberg's "Netherlands" '...my vision became my release'. Great titles he had include: "Dancing Shoes" "Scarecrow's Dream" "Wishing on the Moon" "There's a Place in the World for a Gambler" and "To the Morning".
    Piano solos by Laurens Van Rooyen: "Good Morning, Midnight" and "Imaginary Landscapes"
    From Over the Rainbow: 'where troubles melt like lemon drops'
    Other titles:
    "I've Got a Pocketful of Dreams"
    "Side by Side"
    "Melody of Love"

    What a great way to name a quilt!
