Sophisticated

Sophisticated

She looks so complicated
So sophisticated
Highly educated
With vigor and pizzaz

Elegant and pretty
Humorous and witty
Livin’ in the city
Tango, swing and jazz

And when the evening comes
She’s dressed up to the nines
Like roses and like guns
Her deadly passion shines

Seeking new sensation,
A total exaltation,
Thrill and excitation
Rushing through her veins

Quivering and shivering
Welcoming deliverance
Can she tell the difference
Between the pleasure and the pain

And then the morning comes
Steeped tea and toasted buns
The roses and the guns
Her beauty’s overrun

And it’s bound to keep repeating like the groundhog day
There is just one way to stay, you must quit this game you play

She’s so complicated
So sophisticated
Can she tell the difference
Between the pleasure and the pain

Things You’ve Never Done

Things You've Never Done

When you were younger
Blue-eyed boy wonder
Never used to ponder
On what life may hide

Now you’re older
The nights are so much colder
Never even told her
How you feel inside

You were so proud
With your head up in the white clouds
She’d call you so loud
But you’d never know

Now that you’re wiser
You’d never compromise her
Every day you’d realise her
But this bird has flown

And you’ve blown out all your candles one by one
And you curse yourself for things you’ve never done

She would wait for you
Idolise, adore you
Love and reassure you
You couldn’t let it be

You let it linger
Slip on through your fingers
So that September
She moved across the sea

How your face drops
And how your heart stopped
Sitting at the bus stop
When they told you that she’d gone

So you run to the harbour
Need to tell her that you love her
As the boat disappears
You never felt so alone

‘Cause you’ve blown out all your candles one by one
And you curse yourself for things you never done
Where were you when her hour of need had come?
Now you curse yourself for things you never done

Now your grandson, blonde-haired blue-eyed handsome
Calls you up from London and sits and asks you why
So your answer: “Don’t be scared of failure
The only failure is never to try.”

Never to try
Never to try
Never to try

And where were you when her hour of need had come?
Now you curse yourself for things you never done

Things You’ve Never Done‘ ~Passenger~

Other than the title of this song, there’s nothing at all that relates to my life, my mood or the picture. What is it I’ve never done you ask? Well, I’ll tell you……….I’ve never shaved a man…..anywhere! 😛 I mean it’s not like a razor is completely foreign to me, I’ve always managed to keep myself shaven and shorn properly but, I think it would be a completely different thing to shave someone else….just the simple act of holding the razor would feel foreign to me, and it did…in the virtual world. Really………Vrir gave me my very own razor to attach to myself…..and I did……..I had to do some editing to it……..and more editing……then saying to him, ‘I can’t make it look natural’. It’s at that point I see another razor in front of me…..and he says, ‘Let me edit the razor’……and I did. I took mine off and let him put the razor in my hand and in approximately 11 seconds he had it properly fitting in my hand and not looking like I was going to turn this picture into a slasher flick! It’s quite an intimate thing, I was a little concerned I’d hurt him…..and I think he was too…..but it turned out well……he only needed 3 pieces of kleenex to stick on to stop the bleeding.

The pose is by ACT5 Poses.

You can see Vrir’s version of this here.

ANSWER

Answer

I will be the answer
At the end of the line
I will be there for you
While you take the time
In the burning of uncertainty
I will be your solid ground
I will hold the balance
If you can’t look down

If it takes my whole life
I won’t break, I won’t bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all gone out
You’ll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind
Take me to a
Place so holy
That I can wash this from my mind
The memory of choosing not to fight

If it takes my whole life
I won’t break, I won’t bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
‘Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all burned out
You’ll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind

Empty

Empty

She lifts her skirt up to her knees
Walks through the garden rows with her bare feet, laughing
And I never learned to count my blessings
I choose instead to dwell in my disasters

Walk on down the hill
Through grass grown tall and brown
And still it’s hard somehow to let go of my pain
On past the busted back
of that old and rusted Cadillac
That sinks into this field collecting rain

Will I always feel this way ‒
So empty, so estranged?

And of these cut-throat busted sunsets,
these cold and damp white mornings
I have grown weary
If through my cracked and dusted dime-store lips
I spoke these words out loud would no one hear me?
Lay your blouse across the chair,
Let fall the flowers from your hair
And kiss me with that country mouth so plain.
Outside the rain is tapping on the leaves
To me it sounds like they’re applauding us,
The quiet love we’ve made.

Will I always feel this way
So empty, so estranged?

The ‘Captive Strap Dress & Choker and Sleeves’ are from Asteria and available at ACCESS.

The latest VIP group gift from TRUTH Hair is ‘Eternity’, this is from the reds pack and included on the HUD is the styling options. The VIP group is 350L$ to join…but well worth it with new group gifts pretty much every month.

The ‘Chris’ blindfold is from /erratic/.

The Sweetest Gift

The Sweetest Gift

Quietly while you were asleep
The moon and I were talking
I asked that she’d always keep you protected

She promised you her light
That you so gracefully carry
You bring your light and shine like morning

And then the wind pulls the clouds across the moon
Your light fills the darkest room
And I can see the miracle
That keeps us from falling

She promised all the sweetest gifts
That only the heaven’s could bestow
You bring your light and shine like morning

And as you so gracefully give
Her light as long as you live
I’ll always remember this moment

The Sweetest Gift‘ ~Sade~

And Christmas is over for another year, if you have a real tree I’m sure all the needles are laying on the floor now, if it’s an artificial tree it might be dusty with a few cob webs in behind it against the wall….and the wrapping paper is probably in the recycle bin, it better be in the recycle bin and not the garbage! 😀 It was a quiet Christmas for me……..but is that surprising since most of my life is quiet…….if it’s not quiet it’s not usually good things making it exciting. So, now it’s time to gear up for the the New Year…..all the high end parties and champagne……the short sexy dresses and the kiss at midnight. Or….like my real life……I’ll sit in front of the TV with munchies then go to bed at about 10…….long before anyone blows a horn or toasts the new year. I don’t want to hear Auld Lang Syne………January 1st is just like any other day to me……I’ve not made any New Year resolutions……I don’t think of it as a new start to anything, it’s just another day to wake up, have a cup of coffee, and ponder the fact that we’re 2 decades into the new millenium and wonder where the hell those 20 years went.

*Just BECAUSE* is one of my favourite stores and with each new release I’m in awe of the quality of textures….the perfect fit and the close attention to detail that sets it apart from all the others. One part of the newest release at the main store is the ‘Yula Coat’. It’s long and flowing with a customizable fur trim and gems including an on/off toggle for both. It accentuates the shoulders and dècolletage perfectly and shows off any dress, or gift wrapping, perfectly! You can get the coat and the ‘Wisteria Gown’ now at the *Just BECAUSE* main store.

The strippable’Sasha Gift Ribbon’ from Vanilla Bae has been at FaMESHed but should be at the main store in the next day or so.

I love the ‘Fishnet Stockings’ from Seamless Stockings by Big Beautiful Doll.

My all time favourite hair is the ‘G1204’ by tram.
