The Warrior

The Warrior

You run, run, runaway
It’s your heart that you betray
Feeding on your hungry eyes
I bet you’re not so civilized

Well isn’t love primitive?
A wild gift that you wanna give
Break out of captivity
And follow me stereo jungle child
Love is the kill
Your heart’s still wild

Shooting at the walls of heartache
Bang, bang!
I am the warrior
Well I am the warrior
And heart to heart you’ll win
If you survive the warrior, the warrior

You talk, talk, talk to me
Your eyes touch me physically
Stay with me we’ll take the night
As passion takes another bite, oh
Who’s the hunter, who’s the game?
I feel the beat call your name
I hold you close in victory
I don’t wanna tame your animal style
You won’t be caged in the call of the wild

Shooting at the walls of heartache
Bang, bang!
I am the warrior
Well I am the warrior
And heart to heart you’ll win
If you survive the warrior, the warrior

I am the warrior
Shooting at the walls of heartache
Bang, bang!
I am the warrior
And heart to heart you’ll win
If you survive the warrior, the warrior

‘The Warrior’ ~Scandal ft. Patty Smyth~

Soak Up The Sun

Soak Up The Sun

My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can’t afford his gas
So I’m stuck here watching TV
I don’t have digital
I don’t have diddly squat
It’s not having what you want
It’s wanting what you’ve got

I’m gonna soak up the sun
Gonna tell everyone
To lighten up
I’m gonna tell ’em that
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna soak up the sun

I’ve got a crummy job
It don’t pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do

I’m gonna soak up the sun
Gonna tell everyone
To lighten up
I’m gonna tell ’em that
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
While it’s still free
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me

Don’t have no master suite
But I’m still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I’m the one who has the key
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too

I’m gonna soak up the sun
Gonna tell everyone
To lighten up
I’m gonna tell ’em that
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up

I’m gonna soak up the sun
Gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ’em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up

I’m gonna soak up the sun
I got my 45 on
So I can rock on

Soak Up The Sun‘ ~Sheryl Crow~

My sister, Gillian Galicia, and I got together for a picture and it was good to spend some fun time together, soaking up the sun. We hung out at Grauland and had a few laughs…..and agreed that this pose isn’t sustainable in RL, plus I don’t think I could carry her like this even if she could hang on. I’m never one to shy away from male poses so when Gillian proposed we do a picture with this pose prop we agreed that I’d do the heavy lifting, she’s just a little bit of a thing! 😀

Love Is Blindness

Love Is Blindness

Love is blindness
I don’t want to see
Won’t you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my heart
Love is blindness

In a parked car
In a crowded street
You see your love
Made complete
Thread is ripping
The knot is slipping
Love is blindness

Love is clockworks
And cold steel
Fingers too numb to feel
Squeeze the handle
Blow out the candle
Love is blindness

Love is blindness
I don’t want to see
Won’t you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my love
Blindness

A little death
Without mourning
No call
And no warning
Baby…a dangerous idea
That almost makes sense

Love is drowning
In a deep well
All the secrets
And no one to tell
Take the money
Honey
Blindness

Love is blindness
I don’t want to see
Won’t you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my love
Blindness

Love Is Blindness‘ ~U2 feat. Edge’s solo acoustic~

I had no idea that Edge could sing so amazingly well…..this song completely enthralls me. And I can never resist an acoustic performance of any song…this is truly beautiful.

Perfect Day

Perfect Day

Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
And then later, when it gets dark
We go home

Just a perfect day
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later a movie, too
And then home

Oh, it’s such a perfect day
I’m glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It’s such fun

Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh, it’s such a perfect day
I’m glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You’re going to reap just what you sow

Perfect Day‘ ~Lou Reed~

Vrir and I spent our perfect day at Grauland.

Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands

Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands

With your sheets like metal and your belt like lace
And your deck of cards missing the jack and the ace
And your basement clothes and your hollow face
Who among them can think he could outguess you?

With your silhouette when the sunlight dims
Into your eyes where the moonlight swims
And your match-book songs and your gypsy hymns
Who among them would try to impress you?

Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands
Where the sad-eyed prophets say that no man comes
My warehouse eyes, my Arabian drums
Should I put them by your gate
Or, sad-eyed lady, should I wait?

Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands‘ ~Bob Dylan~

That’s just a portion of the lyrics of this song, it’s over eleven minutes in it’s entirety so I figured you wouldn’t scroll that far. I chose this part of the song because of the beauty of his words. I discovered Bob Dylan in the ’80s when everyone else was listening to Bananarama…….I’ve always been behind the times……but I’ve never really tried to keep up. Instead I go at my own pace and in my own direction………aware of what’s going on around me but not letting it sway me into a different decision. If you see a crowd of people somewhere, I can pretty much guarantee that I won’t be in it.
