Come Back

Come Back

If I keep holding out, will the light shine through?
Under this broken roof it’s only rain that I feel
I’ve been wishing out the days come back

I have been planning out all that I’d say to you
Since you slipped away, know that I still remain true
I’ve been wishing out the days

Please say
That if you hadn’t of gone now
I wouldn’t have lost you another way
From wherever you are, come back

And these days: they linger on
And in the night I’ve been waiting for
The real possibility that I may meet you in my dreams
I go to sleep

If I don’t fall apart, will my memories stay clear?
So you had to go, and I had to remain here

But the strangest thing to date
So far away
And yet you feel so close
And I’m not gonna question it any other way

There must be an open door
For you to come back

And the days: they linger on
And every night, what I’m waiting for
Is the real possibility that I may meet you in my dreams

And sometimes you’re there
And you’re talking back to me
Come the morning I could swear that you’re next to me

And it’s OK

It’s OK
It’s OK

I’ll be here
Come back
Come back

Come Back‘ ~Pearl Jam~

It’s officially Eddie Vedder day, well…..not really but sit back and let the soulful sound of Pearl Jam take you away from whatever you’re living right now. Unless, of course, you’re having tons of fun and don’t have a care in the world, then wait awhile before you listen to this one. I have to admit to having a huge crush on EV…..but don’t tell Vrir!

This is a pose from the ‘Nadja’ set of bento poses from CKEY Poses. This is one of five stunning poses and this set has lots of emotion, so be prepared to bare your soul! It’s available now at the DUBAI Event, which runs until May 10.

The ‘Jolene Top’ is from Blueberry. I just realized I rarely wear a print, opting for the solid colours in everything I wear, I really should make a point of wearing prints more often…….there are some gorgeous textures out there!!

Just like in real life, a favourite pair of jeans is what feels the best……and for me in Second Life my go-to are the ‘Stacey Jeans’ from *Just BECAUSE*. They have wonderfully rich denim textures and a butt second to none!

I’m a ginger, and this is the ‘Intrepid’ hair from Stealthic. And I always get the ‘reds’ pack.

The rest of me is the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Addicted‘ ~Mark Stephen Jones~

I can’t include the lyrics to this song, mainly because I couldn’t find them anywhere. I probably could’ve written them down as I sang it to myself, with the amount of times I’ve heard it I know it by heart, but if I got it wrong I’d be so embarrassed. I know I’ve gotten many lyrics wrong over the years, so I’ll just play it safe. I found a version by Jack Slade in Second Life on YouTube and does an incredible cover of this song, if you’re ever in-world and want to take in some great live music, I highly recommend one of his shows. I’d say his version is better than the original, but he’d think I’m just blowing smoke up his a**, so I’ll keep my thoughts to myself.:D So, about this song…….I love it…….I know it’s written from a man’s point of view, but I never care about that….it’s the thought behind it. Because, I’m well aware that Vrir doesn’t have hair falling down, like poetry on his back……I know…….but the words are beautiful.

The pose Vrir and I are doing is ‘My World’ from CKEY Poses, it’s bento with the hand poses perfect for us….just a little bit of adjustment needed to get his hands on my butt properly….but that’s easily done with the copy/mod pose balls. The pose is available now at the Sense Event, which runs until May 8.

The ‘Emma Top & Panties’ are from RICIELLI.

The ‘Ivy’ hair is from Stealthic.

And the rest of my look 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.

Freak

Flames so hot that they turn blue
Palms reflecting in your eyes, like an endless summer
That’s the way I feel for you
If time stood still, I’d take this moment
Make it last forever

Your halo’s full of fire
I’m rising up, rising up
My hot love’s full of fire
Love’s full of fire
Ahhh

Baby, if you wanna leave
Come to California
Be a freak like me, too
Screw your anonymity
Loving me is all you need to feel
Like I do
We could slow dance to rock music
Kiss while we do it
Talk ’til we both turn blue
Baby, if you wanna leave
Come to California
Be a freak like me, too

Leather black and eyes of blue (blue, blue, blue)
Sun reflecting in your eyes, like an easy rider
Life makes sense when I’m with you
Looking back, my past
It all seems stranger than a stranger

So let’s dance in slow motion
Tear it up, tear it up
Let’s dance by the ocean
Ahhh

Baby, if you wanna leave
Come to California
Be a freak like me, too
Screw your anonymity
Loving me is all you need to feel
Like I do
We could slow dance to rock music
Kiss while we do it
Talk ’til we both turn blue
Baby, if you wanna leave
Come to California
Be a freak like me, too

Oooh, you’re cold as ice, baby
But when you’re nice, baby
You’re so amazing in every way
Oooh, you’re cold as ice, baby
I don’t wanna fight, baby
It’s like I told you
If you stay, I’ll stay

Baby, if you wanna leave
Come to California
Be a freak like me, too
(Take it to the back if you really wanna talk)
Screw your anonymity
Loving me is all you need to feel
Like I do
We could slow dance to rock music
Kiss while we do it
Talk ’til we both turn blue
Baby, if you wanna leave
Come to California
Be a freak like me, too

Natural

Natural

Will you hold the line
When every one of them has given up and given in, tell me
In this house of mine
Nothing ever comes without a consequence or cost, tell me
Will the stars align?
Will heaven step in? Will it save us from our sin? Will it?
‘Cause this house of mine stands strong

That’s the price you pay
Leave behind your heart and cast away
Just another product of today
Rather be the hunter than the prey
And you’re standing on the edge, face up ’cause you’re a…

Natural
A beating heart of stone
You gotta be so cold
To make it in this world
Yeah, you’re a natural
Living your life cutthroat
You gotta be so cold
Yeah, you’re a natural

Will somebody
Let me see the light within the dark trees’ shadowing
What’s happening?
Looking through the glass find the wrong within the past knowing
Oh, we are the youth
Cut until it bleeds inside a world, without the peace, face it
A bit of the truth, the truth

That’s the price you pay
Leave behind your heart and cast away
Just another product of today
Rather be the hunter than the prey
And you’re standing on the edge, face up ’cause you’re a…

Natural
A beating heart of stone
You gotta be so cold
To make it in this world
Yeah, you’re a natural
Living your life cutthroat
You gotta be so cold
Yeah, you’re a natural

Deep inside me, I’m fading to black, I’m fading
Took an oath by the blood of my hand, won’t break it
I can taste it, the end is upon us, I swear
Gonna make it
I’m gonna make it

Natural
A beating heart of stone
You gotta be so cold
To make it in this world
Yeah, you’re a natural
Living your life cutthroat
You gotta be so cold
Yeah, you’re a natural

Natural
Yeah, you’re a natural

The ‘DIXIE’ boots are in a class by themselves when it comes to just about everything about them. The super high platforms and the laces that go up over the ankle mean business, throw in the incredible colours and textures that **UTOPIA@Design** is known for, and you’ll definitely stand out from the crowd. These are available now at FaMESHed X, which runs until May 8.

The ‘Vanity Latex Lingerie’ is from BigBeautifulDoll. When I first put this on I have to admit to being a little shocked at the wasp waist, and some poses made me look rather odd, but one thing about it…….it’s not for the faint of heart!

The ‘Mangata’ hair is from [Bad Hair Day].

The rest if me is made up 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 ‘Kiss My Hand 1’ is from Del May.

And, I’m at Grauland for the shot!

Feelin’ Good

Feelin' Good

Birds flying high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by, you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me, yeah
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me, ooh
And I’m feeling good

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River running free, you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t you know?
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done, that’s what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world, for me

Feelin’ Good‘ ~Kaz Hawkins~

There’s many versions of this song, but this is my favourite, the slow dreamy beat with her soulful voice makes me feel mellow and happy! With spring finally here and the sun shining today, I am feelin’ good. It’s a nice relief after this winter and I had to laugh when I saw a Franklin’s Ground Squirrel just laying in the grass sleeping in the sun. I think he had the same kind of winter as I did…..although he might have gotten more exercise during his hibernation. 😛 Right now you might be wondering if he was actually laying in the grass having died after emerging from his burrow…..but no…I couldn’t resist getting closer and like anyone does if you stare at them long enough when they’re asleep……he woke up. That’s my happy story for the day, carry on! 😀

I’m showing you one of the newest releases from Carol G Tattoo, it’s the ‘Miles Dayse’ tattoo and it’s a burst of flowery goodness on the shoulders, chest, and back with more on the arms and extending down onto the hand. It comes in black(seen here), white, and coloured and is compatible with the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven. It’s exclusive to the Sense Event, which runs until May 8.

The April round of The Liaison Collaborative is in it’s last week, and Le Poppycock has the ‘Versions of April’ gacha there, which is perfect for those spring shots! I’m using the ‘Inhale the Moment’ bento pose which includes the tulip and butterfly props. This is an extensive pose prop gacha set which includes 4 RARE and 10 common bento poses with a variety of props, which are always fun to use. The Liaison Collaborative runs until April 26.

This is the ‘Anna Slip Dress’ from *Just BECAUSE*, and I don’t think this will ever go out of style. I know the picture doesn’t show true to it’s colour, this is the cream version, but if you know anything about JB, you’ll know the colours are always incredible. The little heart is unrigged for easy adjustment and it and the straps are HUD driven. It comes in solid, print and sheer versions and fits the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The ‘Go511’ 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.

I took this at Missing Melody.
