Drake

I never felt magic crazy as this I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea I never held emotion in the palm of my hand Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree But now you’re here Brighten my northern sky. I’ve been a long time that I’m waiting Been a long that I’m blown I’ve been a long time that I’ve wandered Through the people I have known Oh, if you would and you could Straighten my new mind’s eye. Would you love me for my money Would you love me for my head Would you love me through the winter Would you love me ’til I’m dead Oh, if you would and you could Come blow your horn on high. I never felt magic crazy as this I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea I never held emotion in the palm of my hand Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree But now you’re here Brighten my northern sky.

Gravity

I think my shala-crush smiled at me this morning too in headstand. But it may have been gravity pulling up the corners of his mouth.

Pigs and Lambs

As far as Death was aware, the sole reason for any human association with pigs and lambs was as a prelude to chops and sausages. Quite why they should dress up for children’s wallpaper as well was a mystery. Hello, little folk, this is what you’re going to eat… He felt that if only he could find the key to it, he’d know a lot more about human beings.

David Gray

David Gray’s lyrics touch my heart. Very much so.

turn out the light
and the dark sucks on the embers of the fire
that smoulders in the night
tumbling boulders of desire
rolling out the shadows of me
turn out the light

– The Light

the hail storm tumbles
the rail line rumbles
you lie on the floor with me
come closer my love
I’m badly in need
of an afternoon’s debauchery

– Debauchery

ice in the wind
but a fire in the embers
of my heart
as darkness falls
in a candlelit room

and the mystery of love
it just keeps growing
the more my heart reveals

– The Mystery of Love

That’s Life

BUT I’M NOT.

NO. YOU MEAN THIS IS HOW IT GOES.
