Waiting

Waiting

Boys workin’ on empty
Is that the kinda way to face the burning heat?
I just think about my baby
I’m so full of love I could barely eat
There’s nothing sweeter than my baby
I’d never want once from the cherry tree
Cause my baby’s sweet as can be
She’d give me toothaches just from kissin’ me

When my time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

Boys, when my baby found me
I was three days on a drunken sin
I woke with her walls around me
Nothin’ in her room but an empty crib
And I was burnin’ up a fever
I didn’t care much how long I lived
But I swear I thought I dreamed her
She never asked me once about the wrong I did

When my time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

When my time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

My babe would never fret none
About what my hands and my body done
If the Lord don’t forgive me
I’d still have my baby and my babe would have me
When I was kissin’ on my baby
And she put her love down soft and sweet
In the low lamp light I was free
Heaven and hell were words to me

When my time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

When my time comes around
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I’ll crawl home to her

Work Song‘ ~Hozier~

Just standing here, singing a song in my head, which happens to be this one at the moment. I love this song…..’When my time comes around,
Lay me gently in the cold dark earth…….No grave can hold my body down, I’ll crawl home to her’, I love those lines…..although I replace ‘her’ with ‘him’ when I sing it. Since I felt out of place when I first got to Gallery Mirror, Amsterdam, I found an umbrella in my inventory along with a pose so I could blend in among the locals. If you’ve not had a chance to visit Gallery Mirror yet, I highly recommend it. Arete of Cyrene has created a wonderful space to showcase some incredible Second Life photographers, and the whole ambiance of the area is perfect for finding a little relief from the daily stresses and immerse yourself in the art. I’ve not yet toured the whole area, which is inspired by Amsterdam, but I look forward to finding some nice quiet spots to work on inventory or blogging and maybe take a picture or two. At this point I’m waiting for my tour guide to arrive, which I hope is soon……the pigeons are circling and and I’m just thankful I’m holding an umbrella! 😀

A quick rundown of what I’ve used to create this picture is the pose and umbrella prop are from the ‘Spring Showers’ set of pose/props from Le Poppycock. The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88. The ‘Daisy Top’ is from *Just BECAUSE* and it’s one you’ll see me wearing a lot this summer. The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is by Queen oF Ink and one I rarely go without.
