0 The Message Monthly -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Entertainment November On the Record By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS Columnist WHERE YOU GAIN' NOW? face in the mirror/And you close your eyes/Much easier to turn aww,/Than to take a look inside/So you're thinkin it's over/Walking away/Let your Utile world cr sh and burn/Oh what a price to payJDidn't anybody tell you/It's not who's right and wrong?htold the line Is this what's going on? REFRAIN: Where you gain' now/When your world's turned inside out?/lsn't love what it's all about?/Where you gain' now/When you get to the top of the hill?/Gonna be there, yes I will. There's a crack in the mirror/There's a hole in the sun/Full moon in the midnight sky/And you feel like you want to run/So you blow out the candle/And you turn out the light/Then you stumble into darknessJDo you believe that love is blind?/Didn't anybody tell you/It's never too late to try?/Hold the line/Before you say good- bye. [REPEAT REFRAIN) I'm not talking about/What's good for me/And I'm not saying/How you ought to be/But if there is a message/Shining on through to you/Take a ofmind/.and let that love light anybody tell you/It's never too late the line/Before you say goodbye. Learn from the patterns in your relationships (REPEAT REFRAIN) Written by Tommy Shaw, lack Blades and Ted Nugent Sung by Damn Yankees Copyright {c) 1992 by Ranch Rock Music I haven't been much of a fan of the Damn Yankees. Yet, I really like the acoustic guitar sound on their latest release "Where you Gain' Now?" The cassingle is off their recent release "Don't Tread." In the song, the girl becomes disillusioned with love. Apparently she is leaving a relation- ship, one that the guy wants to keep. He challenges her to look inside herself and consider why she is making this choice. She is used to "walking away," it being "much easier to turn away than to take a look inside." He promises to support her as she reflects about the decision, saying that he will be there when she gets "to the top of the hill." I llke the song's emnhasis on examining one's patterns in I ;mnonsmps, The girl does need to understand how fleeing from problems and conflicts affects her and others. As for the guy, he promises not just to focus on "what's good for me." Neither is he trying to tell her" how you ought to be." Rather, his chal- lenge seems to come from a genuine concern for someone who is losing something valuable from her life. While we seldom realize it. most follow patterns in relationshi going from one relationship necessarily lead to finding the right person more happiness. All of us can be hel advice to look at the "face in the mirror." Instead of blaming the other person for lems, look at what you are doing to set up uation. This is especially true if one keep riencing similar difficulties in relationshi For example, if you find people with you, saying you want too much in the tionship, perhaps you easily become too tionally dependent. When this happens, the other feels smothered by your needs. By recognizing this pattern, you take more responsibility for yourself. change both your overt and less direct manipulate others into taking care of you, Relationships are great learning labs. offer us the chance to face ourselves and ways for change and growth, Indeed, there are times when walk away from a relationship. do this. look carefully at what you about yourself.
