Dream a Little Dream of Me

Dream a Little Dream of Me

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper “I love you”
Birds singing in a sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longing to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
And in your dreams
Whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Dream a Little Dream of Me

There are tons of versions of this song, but you know if I’m given a choice I’ll always take an Eddie Vedder song! Recently I was out berry picking with a friend and we got to talking about music, I mentioned how much I love EV and that his solo work spoke to me. When she told me she’d never heard any of it I was shocked and said, ‘The hell you say!’. I knew she probably wasn’t a Pearl Jam fan, but to not have heard him sing alone is almost a crime, to me. So, being the great friend that I am, I whipped out my phone and opened up youtube, and of course my youtube home page is filled with Eddie Vedder from all the times I’ve listened to him, I chose his song, ‘Just Breathe’ to show her what she’s been missing. We stood head to head among the haskap bushes fully captivated by his voice and after it was done we both looked at each other and all she could say was, ‘wow’. I love sharing music with anyone who appreciates it like I do………it may sound corny…..but there’s a lot of people that don’t listen to music, they ‘feel’ it.

In this picture I’m wearing the ‘Mandie Top’ and ‘Miranda Skirt’ from *Just BECAUSE* and they’re just so damn pretty! They’re sold separately so you can save a bit of money if you want one and not the other and they both come in 26 colours plus the print pack, which is included in the fatpack. They’re fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), Belleza(Freya/Isis), and the Legacy mesh bodies and they’re available right now at ~uber~, which runs until July 22.

The ‘Titania’ hair is from SINTIKLIA.

And 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’m at the beautiful North Brother Island sim for this picture.

I Sure Can Smell the Rain

I Sure Can Smell the Rain

She hasn’t done a thing that really has to mean she’s going anywhere
I haven’t seen it showing in her eyes
But I swear it must be there
I don’t know why I feel it so strong
But I feel it just the same

I can’t see a single storm cloud in the sky
But I sure can smell the rain

She’d still say I love you if I asked
But she never volunteers
Somehow what she never says means more than all the other words I hear
Still she should win an Oscar if she’s lying
When she says that nothing’s changed

I can’t see a single storm cloud in the sky
But I sure can smell the rain

Everyday I brace myself
To hear the words I’m scared she’s gonna say
And every night I thank the Lord
Somehow I dodge the bullet one more day

Sometime there are things a man just knows
That he really can’t explain

I can’t see a single storm cloud in the sky
But I sure can smell the rain

I Sure Can Smell the Rain‘ ~Blackhawk~

I remember when this was first released, at that time I listened to mainly country music and although I thought it wasn’t truly pure country, it still had the twang! Well, little did I know then that it was the last country music that I’d really enjoy. Yea…there’s been some good stuff since then, but not like this. Maybe it’s because of where I was at that point, this was the soundtrack to my life at the time and when I think back, with good memories and bad, I realize it came to be a defining time in my life. And with me being a farm girl, I take this song literally, and close my eyes and lift my face up to feel the wind and although there’s not a storm cloud in the sky, I sure can smell the rain. Because rain on soil is the most incredible smell………it’s like a cool drink of water on a hot day, pure heaven!

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and 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’m using a pose from the ‘Floored 001’ set of poses from -slouch- poses.

Demons

Demons

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

At the curtain’s call
It’s the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made

Don’t wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don’t wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it’s what you make
I say it’s up to fate
It’s woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Demons‘ ~Imagine Dragons~

This is my new favourite Imagine Dragons song, have a listen!

This picture is all about the pose, it’s from the ‘Dinah’ series of poses from CKEY Poses, which is available at the SENSE Event. The set included 5 bento poses, plus a pose stand with the poses already installed, for easy posing and adjusting. The SENSE Event runs until July 8.

I’m wearing the ‘Kristy Capris’ from *Just BECAUSE* and the ‘Bijou Tie-Up Shirt’ from /erratic/. The’ ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Rattan’ chair is from ‘Kate’s Vintage Collection’ of chairs from Nutmeg.

She Burns

She Burns

She’s a little explosion of hope
Never turns the lights down low, she can go there if you want to though
There are no markings on her country roads
No signs that show the way back home
When you get there you won’t wanna go

I’ve frozen all my desire
Covered up in virgin snow
But when I stand beside her

She burns yeah she burns
Like petrol soaked paper and fireworks
And I’m burning yeah I’m burning
I’m burning so deep that just breathing hurts
I’m melting darling, I can’t let go

She likes to lay under the covers though
Pretending everywhere’s our home
Keeps me warm right to my very soul
We get so tangled up its hard to know
What is hers and what’s my own
Vines at the bottom of an olive grove

I’ve frozen all my desire
Covered up in virgin snow
But when I stand beside her

She burns yeah she burns
Like petrol soaked paper and fireworks
And I’m burning yeah I’m burning
I’m burning so deep that just breathing hurts
I’m melting darling, I can’t let go
I’m melting darling, I can’t let go
I’m melting darling, I can’t let go

I’ve frozen all my desire
Covered up in virgin snow
But when I stand beside her

She burns yeah she burns
Like petrol soaked paper and fireworks
And I’m burning yeah I’m burning
I’m burning so deep that just breathing hurts
I’m melting darling, I can’t let go
I’m melting darling, I can’t let go
I’m melting darling, I can’t let go

She Burns‘ ~Foy Vance~

I have a busy day ahead and thought I’d take a few minutes to post this picture of Vrir and I before I get going.

The pose is ‘After Midnight’ by e.posEd.

I’m wearing the ‘Colette Lingerie’ in black from Tres Blah and the ‘G0511’ hair from tram.

It’s Time

It's Time

So this is what you meant
When you said that you were spent
And now it’s time to build from the bottom of the pit
Right to the top
Don’t hold back
Packing my bags and giving the academy a rain-check

I don’t ever wanna let you down
I don’t ever wanna leave this town
‘Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
That I’m never changing who I am

So this is where you fell
And I am left to sell
The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell
Right to the top
Don’t look back
Turning to rags and giving the commodities a rain-check

I don’t ever wanna let you down
I don’t ever wanna leave this town
‘Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
That I’m never changing who I am

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
That I’m never changing who I am

This road never looked so lonely
This house doesn’t burn down slowly
To ashes, to ashes

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
That I’m never changing who I am

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Don’t you understand
That I’m never changing who I am

It’s Time‘ ~Imagine Dragons~

I know I’ve used this song in the past, but it’s a good one, and it’s never a bad time to listen to these guys. I like all kinds of music, but I’m always drawn to anything acoustic……there’s nothing like hearing a song stripped down to nothing but a guitar and voice. For me that’s the ultimate in artistry. If you do happen to watch this video take note of the guy with the violin, he’s also their drummer and guitar player. I’d never seen him play the violin before and I shake my head at the fact that he plays multiple instruments, when I can’t even play the kazoo well. I guess that’s the luck of the draw in life, I’m sure I got some kind of skill that he doesn’t……of course none that can make me famous or wealthy….but hey……..I’ve heard that’s highly overrated! No……I’ve never heard that and I don’t think I ever will. 😀

*Just BECAUSE* has a new release out at the main store and it’s perfect for summer! If you loved the ‘Gala Gown’ you’re going to love this…….the ‘Leena Dress’ is a short version of the gown, but it comes with panties attached which can be toggled on/off……as can the lace upper. The belt and panties are both HUD driven to customize to your liking. It fits the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique, Belleza(Isis/Venus) and also the TMP Legacy body. The hemline comes down to my upper thigh making me feel so pretty…..and feminine. ♥

The ‘I0528’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m so sorry, but I can’t recall the pose I used here and didn’t make note of it anywhere. I hate when that happens. 😛

I’m at the wonderful and inspiring Grauland here, gazing out at the horizon. Home of M-1 Poses.
