But when they say "give" they mean "take."
They"ll hang 'round just like vultures till push comes to shove.
They'll take flight when the earth starts to shake.
Then slip out the door 'fore the dawn.
But I won't leave you hanging on.
Another may stay till they find someone new,
Then before you know they'll be gone.
But I won't leave you hanging on;
No, I won't be that someone.
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a moment.
And come what may, I will be standing right here by your side;
I won't run away, though the storm's getting worse and there's no end in sight.
But soon they'll be saying goodbye.
But I won't leave you high and dry.
Because a ring don't mean nothing
If you can't haul the weight,
And some of them won't even try,
But I won't leave you high and dry;
I won't leave you wondering why.
But true love is a choice you must make
And you're the one that I have set my heart to choose.
As long as I live, I swear I'll see this through.

I randomly saw a recipe while browsing The Pioneer Woman's recipe gallery, and it was SO easy that I could not believe it and was thinking about it nonstop for days. I ended up making it this weekend when I was on a random baking spree, and oh my is it good! Here's the recipe
1 cup sugar
Now, if you're "with it" you will have a large zip-lock bag. Pour the sugar/cinnamon mixture into the bag, along with all of your little biscuit pieces and shake it to coat.
Place the coated biscuit pieces in your greased bundt pan. My pan was either small, or I had really big biscuits, so they came way close to the top of the pan. I don't recommend this unless you want drippings all over your oven :)
Alright, put that pan to the side for now! In a small saucepan over mediun-high head, melt the 2 sticks of butter with 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
Stir stir stir until it is fully melted and combined. Also, sorry for my bad kitchen lighting, it was kind of sucky at this time of evening.
Now that your super healthy sauce is done, you can pour it all over your biscuit pieces that are awaiting you in the bundt pan. Mmmmmm.
Now, place the bread in your preheated oven for 30-40 minutes (mine took 40). Take it out, and take a whiff, yummm. Let the bread cook for a while so the "juices" thicken up a bit - you want all that yumminess to stick to the bread, trust me. After that, flip your pan over on a big plate and voila!
