I Want You

I Want You

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola
I don’t need to try and explain;
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might move
so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face
of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

Come stand a little bit closer
Breath in and get a bit higher
You’ll never know what hit you
When I get to you

Ooh, I want you
I don’t know if I need you
But, ooh, I’d die to find out
Ooh, I want you
I don’t know if I need you
But, ooh, I’d die to find out

I’m the kind of person who endorses
a deep commitment
Getting comfy getting perfect
is what I live for
But a look, then a smell of perfume
It’s like I’m down on the floor
And I don’t know what I’m in for

Conversation has a time and place
In the interaction of a lover and
a mate,
But the time of talking,
using symbols, using words
Can be likened to a deep sea diver
who is swimming with a raincoat

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You’ll never know what hit you
When I get to you

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola

I don’t need to try and explain;
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might move
so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face
of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

So can we find out?

I Want You‘ ~Savage Garden~

I love this song but I have to admit that I have no idea what a chic-a-cherry cola is…….and that before I had seen the lyrics I thought he could be saying ‘chicken cherry cola’ which I know makes no sense……but who knows what flavour combinations people may like. And if I think about it, remember the Neil Diamond song ‘Porcupine Pie‘? Yea…he talks about chicken ripple ice cream and vanilla soup in that one! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Sofia Bustier and Draped Dress’ from Asteria here along with the ‘G1113’ hair from tram.

Like Dylan in the Movies

Like Dylan in the Movies

Lisa’s kissing men like a long walk home
When the music stops
Take a tip from me, don’t go through the park
When you’re on your own, it’s a long walk home

If they follow you
Don’t look back
Like Dylan in the movies
On your own
If they follow you
It’s not your money that they’re after boy it’s you

Pure easy listening, settle down
On the pillow soft when they’ve all gone home
You can concentrate on the ones you love
You can concentrate, hey, now they’ve gone

If they follow you
Don’t look back
Like Dylan in the movies
On your own
If they follow you
It’s not your money that they’re after boy it’s you

Yeah you’re worth the trouble and you’re worth the pain
And you’re worth the worry, I would do the same
If we all went back to another time
I will love you over
I will love you over
I will love you

If they follow you
Don’t look back
Like Dylan in the movies
On your own
If they follow you
Tenderly you turn the light on in your room

If they follow you
Don’t look back
Like Dylan in the movies
On your own
If they follow you

Like Dylan in the Movies‘ ~Belle & Sebastian~

This picture almost killed me……..well not literally, but it was an agonizing time. I planned on photographing this outfit right from the first of the month when FaMESHed opened, but each time I attempted it things went wrong. The first time I tried I couldn’t seem to get the right angle so I let my mind rest for awhile and decided to change poses. The next time, I finally got a good angle, but after numerous pictures I could see I didn’t have a windlight that set the tone for the scene. The time after that I crashed just when I thought I had ‘THE’ shot I wanted…..so in frustration I said I was giving up. I put it out of my mind for awhile hoping to come back to it with a fresh eye to start over again at some point, so………this is what I ended up with. I’m sorry to say that at one point I said, ‘This outfit’s cursed!’, but I knew it wasn’t the outfit….it was a combination of technical difficulties and my frame of mind. I should know better than to keep trying when the powers that be have indicated it wasn’t going to happen, because the more I keep trying the further away a peaceful mind and having fun doing it gets.

The ‘Patricia Sweater’ and ‘Quincy Leggings’ are the newest release from *Just BECAUSE* and it’s available now at the September round of FaMESHed. They’re sold separately and both come in 26 colours. The snug fit of the leggings and the loose sweater baring one sexy shoulder are perfect for early fall and the beginning of sweater weather. They’re both rigged for the SLink(Physique/Hourglass), Belleza(Freya/Isis), Maitreya, and Legacy mesh bodies.

The ‘Io116’ hair is from tram.

The cute little shoes are the ‘Holly Flats’ from Ingenue.

I’m using the number 29 pose from MILA.

And, I’m on the stage at Elysion for this one.

Lay Your Hands On Me

Lay Your Hands On Me

If you’re ready, I’m willing and able
Help me lay my cards out on the table
You’re mine and I’m yours for the taking
Right now the rules we made are meant for breaking

What you get ain’t always what you see
But satisfaction’s guaranteed
They say what you give is always what you need
So if you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,
Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,

Lay your hands on me

I’m a fighter, I’m a poet, I’m a preacher
I’ve been to school and baby, I’ve been the teacher
If you show me how to get up off the ground
I can show you how to fly and never ever come back down

Everything you want is what I need
Satisfaction’s guaranteed
But the ride don’t never ever come for free
If you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,
Lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me, lay your hands on me,

Lay your hands on me

Don’t you know I only aim to please
If you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me

Lay Your Hands On Me‘ ~Bon Jovi~

There’s nothing more romantic than the big hair bands of the ’80s! ;P

Carry Me Away

Carry Me Away

I’m such a bore
I’m such a bummer
There must be more
Behind the summer

I want someone
To make some trouble
Been way too safe
Inside my bubble

Oh, take me out and keep me up all night
Let me live on the wilder side of the light

Carry me away
Carry me away
Carry me away

Carry me away
Carry me away
Carry me away

You carnivore
You loose cannon
Can I have some more?
I can’t understand it

You fast car
You foolish spender
You know you are
And I surrender

So come on over
And wake me up
Put some of your tequila
In my coffee cup

You know I need ya
And that’s for sure
You’re just the kind of crazy
I’ve been looking for

Carry me away
Carry me away
Carry me away
(Where the sun hits my face all different)

Carry me away
Carry me away
Carry me away

Carry Me Away‘ ~John Mayer~

I’m finding the ‘Altered State’ pose/prop gacha set from Le Poppycock so inspiring, the bento poses are perfect and the props to add to your avatar give a scene that little extra that can set it apart. Here I’m using the ‘Mainframe’ pose with the attachable fence. I’m not sure if I’m on the inside looking out, or vice versa….either way I just want to be carried away. You’ll find this gacha set at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative which runs until September 26.

For this look I’m wearing the ‘Ness Top’ from /erratic/ and the ‘G1204’ hair from tram. The rest of me consists of the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The new build at Grauland is coming along extremely well, and although I loved the way it was before I think I can embrace this!

I Want To Break Free

I Want To Break Free

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you
I’ve got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free.

I’ve fallen in love
I’ve fallen in love for the first time

And this time I know it’s for real
I’ve fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love.

It’s strange but it’s true
I can’t get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free, baby
Oh how I want to be free,
Oh how I want to break free.

But life still goes on
I can’t get used to, living without, living without,
Living without you by my side
I don’t want to live alone, hey
God knows, got to make it on my own
So baby can’t you see
I’ve got to break free.

I’ve got to break free
I want to break free, yeah
I want, I want, I want, I want to break free.

I Want To Break Free‘ ~Queen~

Well, not really……..I’m not sure I could handle any kind of breaking free, and although I sometimes hate to feel constraints in my life, they’re basically only imagined……because I really could do anything I wanted to, within reason of course. So, I guess the whole thing for me is that breaking free for me wouldn’t be a physical thing, I need to break free mentally. I’m not sure I could handle that, I need structure in my life so the idea of being free means giving up my routine, even though some days it feels more like a rut. I suppose I could start small, just letting go of small things in life for a short time, like saying I don’t need to have coffee every morning at 10 o’clock or leaving home in the evening just for once. I think there’s probably a lot of people who live like I do, not liking any surprises that may upset the routine, but more often than not I’m laughed at because I’m ‘set in my ways’, like it’s a bad thing. I guess for anyone who dislikes routine would feel smothered but for me it’s what keeps me feeling secure and comfortable.

Le Poppycock has a new pose/prop gacha out and it’s a fun one! The ‘Altered State’ gacha set consists of 12 bento poses with props to ‘add’ to your avatar to make it so easy to create a scene. I’m using the ‘Mainframe’ pose which adds the fence to my avatar, to make it really easy I put the pose animation, which is included, in a pose ball to make it super easy to get it how I wanted it. It’s available now at The Liaison Collaborative which runs until September 26.

I’m wearing the ‘Shikura’ outfit from R2 Fashion. I love their sci fi inspired attire, it’s always sexy and a little out of this world!

The ‘Maya’ hair from Argrace is one of my favourite windy hairs.

I stopped in at Grauland to find a place to do this pose and was shocked to see it in the throes of upheaval. Yes, it’s getting a makeover, again…….which Jim Garand(the owner) says is a good thing…….I’m not convinced because I loved it as it was! I did find a big slab of concrete to put my fence on, so it’s all good….and I’m looking forward to seeing it when it’s done.
