Losing You…

There are times when someone’s already said everything you’ve been meaning to say. This is one of those times. Listen to Ashley Arrison’s “Losing You.” Watch it…think about it….then read the lyrics if there’s still any confusion.

“Losing You” by Ashley Arrison

I tried right for so long

But you, you had to have me for your own

I can’t lie, I let you in

But you threw me back again

It’s in your eyes

It’s on your lips

I’m losing you, I’m losing you

It’s in the way we don’t exist

I’m losing you

You said “everything would go our way if we just communitcate”

But don’t lie, you never tried

Is she the reason why?

It’s in your eyes 

It’s on your lips

I’m losing you, losing you

It’s in the way we don’t exist

All my fears are coming true

It’s in the way you say my name

I’m losing you, I’m losing you

Was it all a stupid game?

I’m losing you

You let me slip away

Was I your great escape?

I guess I never really had you in the first place

It’s in your eyes

It’s on your lips

I’m losing you, I’m losing you

It’s in the way we don’t exist

I’m losing you

It’s in the way you touch my skin

I’ll never know how you pulled me in

It’s in the way you say my name

I’m losing you.

5 Words for Friday…

The five words that are tossed around relentlessly in my profession that I’ve grown to hate, yet am forced to integrate (just missed the cut) into my vocab on a daily basis. Really, there’s nothing revolting about these words/phrases rather it all comes down to the context in which they are used.

1. Leverage – this is hoity-toity marketing speak for “use”. Why can’t we just say use anymore?

2. Assets – can we be more vague? What are our assets? Most days this consists of news, video, and/or images. I know – annoying right?

3. Loop – Most commonly used as a verb: “I’ll loop you in,” which loosely translates to “I don’t feel like doing this work, so I’ll be sure to pass it off to you in front of others so you can’t decline.”

4. Case Study – Everything is considered a case study – but rarely is any thing a TRUE case study. However, I’ve affectionately come to refer to the dreaded case study as – CS.

5. Thanks so much – Most commonly used as a reply to the “I’ll loop you in” comment. It’s drenched in sarcasm and dripping with disdain, but still seems civil in tone, unless your recipient is wise to you.
