If I were a Carpenter …

Why do stars fall down from the sky
every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
close to you …

My landlords, who are also my upstairs neighbors, just made my day … maybe even my week.  They have a piano and I often hear someone rehearsing, but I usually can’t put a name to any of the pieces I hear from upstairs.  But, even as I type, someone’s playing Carpenters songs!

Oh, don’t front –you know you love the Carpenters.  Ok, maybe you weren’t a fan … but I was, and I still am.  They sang so many of the songs of my childhood: “Goodbye to Love,” “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Solitaire,” “For All We Know,” “Rainy Days and Mondays,” “Superstar,” “Hurting Each Other” … do I need to go on?

Excuse me while I sing along …

    I lovvvvve the Carpenters! I’m not ashamed!

    I cried like an orphan during the movie, too. The one about her anorexia.

    Knew there was a reason I liked you so… Karen Carpenter had an angel’s voice – oh so inspiring. Love their Christmas albums too – do you have those? And now I have “Close to You” stuck in my head…
