Beneath Your Beautiful

Beneath Your Beautiful

You tell all the boys “No”
Makes you feel good, yeah
I know you’re out of my league
But that won’t scare me away, oh, no

You’ve carried on so long
You couldn’t stop if you tried it
You’ve built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I’m gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

You let all the girls go
Makes you feel good, don’t it?
Behind your Broadway show
I heard a boy say, “Please, don’t hurt me”

You’ve carried on so long
You couldn’t stop if you tried it
You’ve built your wall so high
That no one could climb it
But I’m gonna try

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, boy, take it off now, boy
I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, tonight?

See beneath, see beneath
I…
Tonight
I…

I’m gonna climb on top your ivory tower
I’ll hold your hand and then we’ll jump right out
We’ll be falling, falling but that’s OK
‘Cause I’ll be right here
I just wanna know

Would you let me see beneath your beautiful?
Would you let me see beneath your perfect?
Take it off now, girl, take it off now, girl (take it off now, boy, take it off now, boy)
‘Cause I wanna see inside
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight, oh, oh, oh, tonight?
See beneath your beautiful, oh, tonight
We ain’t perfect, we ain’t perfect, no
Would you let me see beneath your beautiful tonight?

Beneath Your Beautiful‘ ~Labrinth ft. Emeli Sandé~

I’ve sat here struggling to write something to say to go with this picture but the words don’t come easy. I could tell a funny story with no problem at all, I’ve found that my go to way of sharing certain things is with humour. It deflects my real emotion which makes me less awkward about sharing how I feel, but there’s a time when this way just doesn’t work, and this is one of them. Vrir and I aren’t in a romantic or loving pose, but the comfort of just sitting together comfortably is what makes it all the more special. We don’t need to say anything……. we connect in a way that words aren’t needed, I just feel the comfort of being with him. I know these things have all been said before, not by me…mind you, but Vrir’s my rock, my shelter from the storm…..my best friend and my lover and I’m so blessed to have found him. Is that mushy enough for everyone, because I can keep going if not…….I don’t mind…I might even get comfortable with saying these things publicly, but I doubt it! 😀

This is the C.13 pose from IntoXx. It’s comfortable silence is perfect for us, some days words just get in the way of connecting.

Hey…..

Broken Wings

Broken Wings

Fight the fight alone
When the world is full of victims
Dims a fading light
In our souls

Leave the peace alone
How we all are slowly changing
Dims a fading light
In our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
The things we hold
Are always first to go
And who’s to say
We won’t end up alone

On broken wings I’m falling
And it won’t be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I’m bleeding
And it won’t be long
I’ve got to find that meaning
And I’ll search for so long

Cry ourselves to sleep
We will sleep alone forever
Will you lay me down
In the same place with all I love

Mend the broken homes
Care for them they are our brothers
Save the fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
What you give
Will always carry you
And who’s to say
We won’t survive it too

On broken wings I’m falling
And it won’t be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I’m bleeding
And it won’t be long
I’ve got to find that meaning
And I’ll search for so long

Set a-free all
Relying on their will
To make me all that I am
And all I’ll be

Set a-free all
Will fall between the cracks
With memories of all that I am
And all I’ll be

On broken wings I’m falling
And it won’t be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I’m bleeding
And it won’t be long
I’ve got to find that meaning
And I’ll search for so long

Broken Wings‘ ~Alter Bridge~

I love Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge and this is such a powerful song. The first thing any CSI fan might notice is that Paul Guilfoyle is in the video. I loved the early years of the original CSI. When William Peterson left and Lawrence Fishburne was in it was when I stopped watching. I’m just not a Lawrence Fishburne fan…….and the storylines surrounding him were just silly. I never did go back to watching it after he left and Ted Danson starred in it, some said it was good…but for me, no one could replace William Peterson. Please don’t get me started talking about CSI:Miami…….that was the worst…….and the main guy in it…..I can never remember his name….was terrible. I could live with CSI:New York, but again……..it couldn’t come close to the original one. They’re all gone now, and now and then I watch the old ones and all I can think is, how did they ever work in that lighting………the building was always dark and blue, there’s no way anyone could work all day in that lighting, but maybe no one else noticed that! 😀

For this picture I’m using one of the 5 bento poses from the ‘Dinah’ series from CKEY Poses. The poses in this set are really versatile and can set the mood perfectly in your pictures. I’m always drawn to unique sitting poses and this set doesn’t disappoint. They’re available at the SENSE Event which runs until July 8.

I’m wearing the bra and thong from the ‘Cecilia’ lingerie set from /erratic/.

My hair is the ‘G1204’ from tram.

I’m always inspired at Grauland when I visit.

Bleed It Out

Bleed It Out

Yeah here we go for the hundredth time
Hand grenade pins in every line
Throw ’em up and let something shine
Going out of my fucking mind

Filthy mouth, no excuse
Find a new place to hang this noose
String me up from atop these roofs
Knot it tight so I won’t get loose

Truth is you can stop and stare
Bled myself out and no one cares
Dug the trench out laid down there
With a shovel up out of reach somewhere

Yeah, someone pour it in
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out

Go stop the show
Choppy words and a sloppy flow
Shotgun opera lock and load
Cock it back and then watch it go

Mama help me I’ve been cursed
Death is rolling in every verse
Candy paint on his brand new hearse
Can’t contain him he knows he works

Fuck this hurts, I won’t lie
Doesn’t matter how hard I try
Half the words don’t mean a thing
And I know that I won’t be satisfied

So why try ignoring him?
Make it a dirt dance floor again
Say your prayers and stomp it out
When they bring that chorus in

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out

I’ve opened up these scars
I’ll make you face this
I’ve pulled myself so far
I’ll make you face this now!

I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
I bleed it out digging deeper
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away
Just to throw it away

I bleed it out

Bleed It Out‘ ~Linkin Lark~

I’m wearing the ‘Esther Top’ and ‘Krista Capris’ from *Just BECAUSE*. The top is at the mainstore but the capris will be at the May round of ~uber~ for a couple more days, then after that you’ll be able to get them at the *JB* mainstore.

The ‘G0511’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Loud set 004’ pose set from -slouch- poses.

I’m at Grauland for this shot, where there’s plenty of spots for pictures to get your creative juices flowing.

How Do I Live

How Do I Live

How do I get through one night without you
If I had to live without you
What kind of life would that be
Oh and I, I need you in my arms
Need you to hold
You’re my world, my heart, my soul
If you ever leave
Baby, you would take away everything good in my life

Without you there’d be no sun in my sky
There would be no love in my life
There’d be no world left for me
And I, baby I don’t know what I would do
I’d be lost if I lost you
If you ever leave
Baby, you would take away everything real in my life
And tell me now

How do I live without you
I want to know
How do I breathe without you
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, how do I
Oh, how do I live

If you ever leave
Baby, you would take away everything
Need you with me
Baby, ’cause you know that you’re everything good in my life
And tell me now

How do I live without you
I want to know
How do I breathe without you
If you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive
How do I, how do I
Oh, how do I live
How do I live
Without you baby

Here Comes Revenge

Here Comes Revenge

Little grave I’m grieving, I will mend you
Sweet revenge I’m dreaming, I will end you

I’ve been here since dawn of time
Countless hatreds built my shrine
I was born in anger’s flame
He was Abel, I was Cain
I am here
I’m hell unbound
Burn your kingdom to the ground
To the ground

Here comes revenge, just for you
Revenge, you can’t undo
Revenge, it’s killing me
Revenge, set me free
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
A life for a life, it’s my burden of proof
Revenge, just for you
Revenge
You ask forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

I return this nightmare, I will find you
Sleepless, cloaked in despair, I’m behind you

Man has made me oh so strong
Blurring lines of right and wrong
Far too late for frail amends
Now it’s come to sweet revenge
Desperate hands
That lose control
Have no mercy on your soul
On your soul

Here comes revenge, just for you
Revenge, you can’t undo
Revenge, is killing me
Revenge, set me free
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
A life for a life, it’s my burden of proof
Revenge, just for you
Revenge
You ask forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

Here comes revenge, just for you
Revenge, you can’t undo
Revenge, is killing me
Revenge, set me free
Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
A life for a life, it’s my burden of proof
Revenge, just for you
Revenge
You ask forgiveness, I give you sweet revenge

Sweet revenge

Here Comes Revenge‘ ~Metallica~

Hahaha, well not really….it looks like I’m some p*ssed off and ready to exact some sweet revenge, but really…….all that happened is my lip animation got changed accidently at some point and I walked around looking rather sour for a period of time. I thought it added something to the picture though, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the lighthouse behind me blows up, that would bring a smile to my face, I think. It’s amazing really how one little change can make a photograph completely different, if I’d been like I normally am, just looking neutral and maybe a little sad this picture wouldn’t be the same, but a little thing like my lips changes the whole mood of the shot. I usually find these things out completely by accident, which thankfully happens, otherwise if left up to my own creative ideas, every shot would be Liz standing somewhere looking sad. And no one wants to see that all the time!

I’m wearing the ‘Striped Spring Set’, in ‘canary’, from fashionably dead, here. It’s a cute shorts and top combo that’s perfect for the warm weather. It’s fitted for the 5 major mesh bodies.

The ‘Rose’ hair is from [monso] and it’s available now at Collabor88, this is the reds pack.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is one of five from the ‘Sydney’ set of poses from Ana Poses.

I’m at Missing Melody for this shot.
