~April 2015

'Cause I can't make you love me
If you don't.
You can't make your heart feel
Somethin it won't.
Here in the dark -
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart,
And feel the power if you want
No you won't.

I can't make you love me,
If you don't.

And now...

Still I can't let you go.
It's unnatural, you belong to me, I belong to you."

I Could Not Ask For More


These are the moments,
I thank God that I'm alive.
These are the moments,
I'll remember all my life.
I've got all I've waited for,
And I could not ask for more.

"My wish, for you,
is that this life becomes
all that you want it to.
Your dreams stay big.
Your worries stay small.
You never need to carry more
than you can hold.
And while you're out there getting
where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you,
and wants the same things too.
Yes this, is my wish."

Always and Forever

"I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through...
Lost forever If I never knew you."

"You are never far from a hug on The Clayboard."

I'VE HEARD IT SAID

THAT PEOPLE COME INTO OUR LIVES FOR A REASON,
BRINGING SOMETHING WE MUST LEARN
AND WE ARE LED
TO THOSE WHO HELP US MOST TO GROW
IF WE LET THEM
AND WE HELP THEN IN RETURN.
WELL, I DON'T KNOW IF I BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE
BUT I KNOW I'M WHO I AM TODAY BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

LIKE A COMET PULLED FROM ORBIT
AS IT PASSES THE SUN.
LIKE A STREAM THAT MEETS A BOULDER
HALFWAY THROUGH THE WOOD.
WHO CAN SAY IF I'VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
BUT BECAUSE I KNEW YOU
I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE GOOD...

IT WELL MAY BE
THAT WE WILL NEVER MEET AGAIN
IN THIS LIFETIME
SO LET ME SAY BEFORE WE PART SO MUCH OF ME
IS MADE OF WHAT I LEARNED FROM YOU
YOU'LL BE WITH ME
LIKE A HANDPRINT ON MY HEART.
AND NOW WHATEVER WAY OUR STORIES END
I KNOW YOU HAVE RE-WRITTEN MINE
BY BEING MY FRIEND...

LIKE A SHIP BLOWN FROM IT'S MOORING
BY A WIND OFF THE SEA
LIKE A SEED DROPPED BY A SKYBIRD
IN A DISTANT WOOD
WHO CAN SAY IF I'VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER?
BUT BECAUSE I KNEW YOU...

BECAUSE I KNEW YOU

I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR GOOD...

Jan. 28, 2013 - Our 10th Year Together

Clay's Blog To The Clayboard - 2/22/13

Another Happy Anniversary

02/22/13 at 10:14 AM By: Clay Aiken

I know it's sort of taboo to discuss such things on this site, but I felt

it important to break one of our social customs today to make mention of

a special milestone.

First let me state that the OFC survives and based on you guys and your

loyalty. The dues you pay to be members here don't line anyone's pockets.

They simply go to fund the upkeep and maintenance of the site. Without

the membership dues that you pay, www.clayaiken.com would probably go

stagnant and not be around for NJU (I know your terms icon_e_wink.gif ) to check

out when they want to see what is up with me. You've seen websites for

people who haven't been updated since 2001! You guys are the reason that

hasn't happened to my site yet!.

Of course, we try to make it worth your while with tiny little

incentives, like video chats and meet and greet opportunities. We'll

continue to do that when we can, and hopefully be able to come up with

other special incentives in the future. But the support of you all is

what has kept this very valuable social media marketing tool alive for

me. So I thank you and I hope you'll continue to stay members, and

encourage others to join as well. (Think of it as a tiny "campaign

donation" to the Clay Aiken marketing arm)

Our strong need to maintain the basic income for this site so it can stay

alive is one of the reasons that we ask that you not share information

from here with the numerous other message boards. It's why I blog here

and ask that the blogs stay here and why i use this site to communicate

and no others. If folks didn't come here as members, there would be no

ClayAiken.com!

But... for today... for this moment... I am suspending that rule.... in

honor of another of another touchstone in this year of celebration.

When I began on Idol, I remember going downstairs to the business office

of the Le Meridian hotel in Los Angeles where they placed us during the

first several weeks of the TV show. There was but one computer in this

hotel and it was in a room just off the lobby.

(Amazing to think that ten years ago there was no high speed internet

access in the hotel rooms and, even if there had been, almost none of us

contestants had computers!! Wow how society has changed!) That single

computer in that room was always occupied by a contestant from the

show!!! Someone had discovered that, within the American Idol website

(what was then idolsonfox.com! ha ha) were message boards where some

savvy computer users had the opportunity to log on and discuss the Idol

contestant performances online! (Who knew of such an invention!!???)

Every night several of us could be found in the business office poring

over the message boards to try to gauge how well or how poorly we had

done and whether or not we thought we would be kicked off (one contestant

did it WAY more than the others, and I am willing to bet you would not be

able to guess who!).

These message boards (Bolt Boards, if I recall) were a phenomenon for

Idol fandom, a focus group for us contestants, and would become an

initial breeding ground for an INCREDIBLE group of fans for me!!

But apparently, not long after the season began, one enterprising group

decided that they wanted to set up a message board dedicated entirely to

one contestant. When I first learned about The Clayboard, I must admit I

was shocked and humbled! I was apprehensive about going on to it from

that tiny computer in the Idol house because I was worried about what

folks might be saying on there and I didn't want to be psyched out during

the competition. But I found myself pointing my browser to

www.claytonaiken.com (Idol had already bought clayaiken.com) several

times during my run on Idol. Every time it brought me encouragement and

made me feel better about myself. The ladies who began that message board

probably never knew that I was peeking in from time to time. But they,

and the many who have joined them there for the past ten years, instilled

a lot of confidence in me during my run on Idol and for many years

afterwards. And for that I am thankful.

MANY MANY message boards have sprung up (and some have shuttered) in the

past ten years. I've snooped around on a few... though I tend to keep my

eyes on this one now.... and they all have become really strong

communities of friends. Friendships have been built across thousands of

miles because if these internet havens. Each separate message board

community is special and valuable (Though, let me repeat... please come

to this one!! icon_e_wink.gif) and I am eternally grateful to all of them.

But The Clayboard was the first to set out on their own to support me...

and ten years later they are still there... 9though i wish they would

join here!! icon_e_wink.gif)


Happy 10th Birthday Clayboard!


Love

    Hi, Mama!

    Since u seem to be pretty active on the board & this may seem like a silly question but... Do u remember who performed first during the Independent Tour in Detroit? I have looked on the Internet via Google & it doesn't seem to understand what I'm asking, if you'd help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    Thanks,

    Ellison (A.K.A. ClazyForClaleigh26)

    Ellison,
    Below is the link to our Concert Tour Archives. EVERYTHING is in there. I searched a little bit and found a thread on Detroit. From what I am reading from people's reviews, I am pretty sure Clay sang first.

    Sure is a walk down memory lane in there!

    Hugs,

    Hi Karrie
    It is actually a song titled "For Good" from the Broadway Musical "Wicked." It is written by Stephen Schwartz.
