What is a song or poem that speaks to you and why?

Jimmy Buffett rocks! I have seen him in concert a few times and he really knows how to put on a show. But, half of the entertainment is watching the crowd. There are some interesting people that show up at a Buffett concert. We fans, affectionately called “Parrotheads”, are a diverse bunch. That being said, there are many, many Buffett songs that I love. I can’t really explain why this one is my favorite, it just is. The music is so soothing and I can just see myself in the airplane looking down at the snow. I’ve never flown in winter but I’m sure it is just beautiful. And some days all we can ask is to just survive.

“Survive” by Jimmy Buffett

I play the stereo loud
When I’m away from the maddening crowd
Smokin’, jokin’, clowns we all are

Sometimes I kinda get real ill
When I receive my monthly telephone bill
But you say it and I’ll pay it
`Cause it just helps me to

[Chorus:]
Survive, stay alive
‘Til I see you again
Survive, stay alive
Can’t say where it ends

Clouds lift and there are mountains below
Been a while since I’ve seen any snow
Chillin’ so thrillin’ so good to be back

Feels nice to be home for a while
Let’s sip champagne til we break into smiles
We’ll go dancin’ romancin’
`Cause your the reason I


Survived, stayed alive
Through the thick and the thin
Survive, stay alive
When will it all end?

But my bags ain’t unpacked
`Cause I’ve got to go back and play
But I know we’ll both

Survive, stay alive
Through the thick and the thin
Survive, stay alive
Until it all ends

Survive, stay alive
When will it all end
Survive, stay alive
Till I see you again
