Soon We’ll Be Found

Soon We'll Be Found

Come along it is the break of day
Surely now, you’ll have some things to say
It’s not the time for telling tales on me

So come along, it won’t be long
‘Til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies
In this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt
Tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight?
Turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Well it’s been rough but we’ll be just fine
We’ll work it out yeah we’ll survive
You mustn’t let a few bad times dictate

So come along, it won’t be long
‘Til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies
In this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt
Tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight?
Turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight?
Don’t turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight?
Turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found [3x]

Soon We’ll Be Found‘ ~Sia~

Gently

Gently

No, I wouldn’t mind
Going gently into the night
As long as it don’t hurt
I won’t put up a fight
To go beyond the time
When my hands and voice aren’t sold
To a world so overgrown
It’s moving so fast we should slow
Down

But as the shadows from the trees
Dance on the window pane,
Here I lie awake once again,
Longing for a dream
That may never come
Until I’m done
But I wouldn’t mind,
No, I wouldn’t mind

I can see it with my own two eyes
That I wouldn’t mind

I don’t care
If I vanish into thin air
As long as there ain’t pain
I won’t leave you that burden to bear
To live on the other side
So reckless and free to roam
With no fear of the unknown
But I’m moving too fast I should slow
Down

But as the shadows from the trees
Dance on the window pane
Here I lie awake once again
Longing for a dream
That may never come
Until I’m done
But I wouldn’t mind (no, no)
No, I wouldn’t mind

I can see it with my own two eyes
That I wouldn’t mind

If time is life’s great healer
It’s some bandit in disguise
Stealing all your memories
As each year passes by

It’s the same old story
Just told on a different day
Another lonesome journey
Down a dark hallway

But I wouldn’t mind (no, oh)
No, I wouldn’t mind

I can see it with my own two eyes
That I wouldn’t mind
I wouldn’t mind

Gently‘ ~You+Me~

I’ve been dealing with real life this past week, and not in a good way, so I’ve been very short of words…even though I’ve managed to capture a few images to occupy my mind. Each day I wake up with hope that today will bring good news, I hope today’s the day.

Long Road

Long Road

And I wished for so long. Cannot stay.
All the precious moments. Cannot stay.
It’s not like wings have fallen. Cannot stay.
But still something’s missing. I cannot say, yeah.

Holding hands are daughters and sons.
And their faiths are falling down, down, down, down.
I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.

Will I walk the long road? (the long road) Cannot stay. (the long road)
There’s no need to say goodbye. (to say goodbye)

All the friends and family.
All the memories going round, round, round, round.
I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.

And the wind keeps roaring. And the sky keeps turning grey.
And the sun is set. The sun will rise another day.

I…

I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.
I have wished for so long. How I wish for you today.

Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road?
Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road? We all walk the long road.
Will I walk the long road?

Creep

Creep

Forward yesterday
Makes me wanna stay
What they said was real
Makes me wanna steal
Livin’ under house
Guess I’m livin’, I’m a mouse
All’s I gots is time
Got no meaning, just a rhyme

Take time with a wounded hand
‘Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
‘Cause I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
‘Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I’m half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I’m half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I’m half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I’m half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Feelin’ uninspired
Think I’ll start a fire
Everybody run
Bobby’s got a gun
Think you’re kinda neat
Then she tells me I’m a creep
Friends don’t mean a thing
Guess I’ll leave it up to me

Take time with a wounded hand
‘Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
‘Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal

I’m half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I’m half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I’m half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I’m half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

I Need A Hero

I Need A Hero

Here comes another storm, seems like it’s always raining
Mostly in my head under the sheets
It’s where I’m always hiding from my best intentions
Guess God has got me sowing what I reap

And oh dear God I almost had it
Shining on my heart
And oh dear God I almost taste it
Crying in the dark

But I’m not a hero
I’m no superwoman
I got my problems
Coming and going
I look like my mother
But I hurt like my father
I am so thirsty
But I won’t drink the water
I’m not a hero

Even now when I look back on all those demons
That I swore that I would never be
I can’t help but hang my head and beg for silence
I’d scream but they’d scream louder back at me

And oh dear God I thought I heard it
Playing on your voice
And if dear God I’m fit to make it
Do I still have a choice?

Cause I’m not a hero
I’m only human
I got my problems
Coming and going
I look like my mother
But I hurt like my father
I am so thirsty
But I won’t drink the water
I’m not a hero

There I am going crazy
I’m going crazy again
There I go

There I am going crazy
I’m going crazy again
There I go
There I go

I’m not a hero
I’m no superwoman
I got so many problems
But who am I fooling
I look like my mother
But I hurt like my father
I scream from the rafters
I’m still what’s the matter

I need a hero

But I was almost
I was almost
I was almost there

For you

I Need A Hero‘ ~Beth Hart~

There’s also 6 metal and 6 belt textures plus the belt can be toggled on/off. The top also comes in 24 colours with the ribbon and buttons HUD driven for customization. ~uber~ runs until November 22.

The ‘I0116’ hair is from tram.

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

I’m using a pose from the ‘Lisbon’ set of poses from Ana Poses.

And, I’m at the always calming Hazardous sim.
