“Promises” (Eric Clapton)

I don’t care if you never come home.
I don’t mind if you just
Keep on rowin’away on a distant sea
cuz I don’t love you and you don’t love me.

You cause a commotion when you come to town

You give ’em a smile and they melt
Having lovers and friends is all good and fine
But I don’t like yours and you don’t like mine.

La la la …

I don’t care what you do at night oh
I don’t care how you get your delights
We’ll leave it alone
We’ll just let it be
I don’t love you and you don’t love me.

I got a problem
Can you relate?
I got a woman
Callin’ love hate.
We made a vow
we’d always be friends.
How could we know that promises end.

La la la …

I tried to love you for years upon years
But you refuse to take me for real
It’s time you saw what I want you to see
That I’d still love you if you’d just love me.

I got a problem
Can you relate?
I got a woman
Callin’ love hate.
We made a vow
we’d always be friends.
How could we know that promises end.

“Falling For You” (Weezer)

Holy cow, I think I’ve got one here
Now just what am I s’posed to do?
I’ve got a number of irrational fears that I’d like to share with you
First, there’s rules about old goats like me
Hangin’ ’round with chicks like you, but I do like you
And another one, you say, “Like” too much

But I’m shakin’ at your touch, I like you way too much
My baby I’m afraid I’m falling for you
I’d do ’bout anything to get the hell out alive
Or maybe I would rather settle down with you

Holy moly, baby wouldn’t you know it?
Just as I was bustin’ loose
I’ve gotta go turn in my rock star card and get fat and old with you
‘Cuz I’m a burning candle, you’re a gentle moth
Teaching me to look a little bit kinder and I do like you
You’re the lucky one, no, I’m the lucky one

I’m shakin’ at your touch, I like you way too much
My baby I’m afraid I’m falling for you
I’d do ’bout anything to get the hell out alive
Or maybe I would rather settle down with you, oh

Holy sweeps, goddamn, you left your cello in the basement
I admired the glowing stars and tried to play a tune
I can’t believe how bad I suck, it’s true
What could you possibly see in little ol’ 3-chord me?
But I do like you and you like me too!
I’m ready, let’s do it baby

I’m shakin’ at your touch, I like you way too much
My baby I’m afraid I’m falling for you
I’d do ’bout anything to get the hell out alive
Or maybe I would rather settle down with you
Down with you

Hyper-relatable song right now in my life…

“Hey” (Pixies)

HEY
been trying to meet you
hey
must be a devil between us
or whores in my head
whores at my door
whores in my bed
but hey
where
have you
been if you go i will surely die
we’re chained

uh said the man to the lady
uh said the lady to the man she adored
and the whores like a choir
go uh all night
and mary ain’t you tired of this
uh
is
the
sound
that the mother makes when the baby breaks
we’re chained

Jackson Williams.

“Maps” (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)

Pack up
I’m straight
Enough
Oh, say say say
Oh, say say say
Oh, say say say
Oh, say say say
Oh, say say say

Wait, they don’t love you like i love you
Wait, they don’t love you like i love you
Ma-a-a-a-ps, wait! 
They don’t love you like i love you…

Made off
Don’t stray
My kind’s your kind 
I’ll stay the same

Pack up
Don’t stray
Oh, say say say
Oh, say say say

Wait! they don’t love you like i love you
Wait! they don’t love you like i love you
Ma-a-a-aps, wait!
They don’t love you like i love you…
Wait! they don’t love you like i love you
Ma-a-a-aps, wait!
They don’t love you like i love you…

“Billie Jean” (Michael Jackson)

She told me her name was Billie Jean
As she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

People always told me, “Be careful of what you do
And dont go around breaking young girls hearts”
And mother always told me, “Be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do cause the lie becomes the truth”

Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one but the kid is not my son

“Voices Carry” (‘Til Tuesday)

I’m in the dark, I’d like to read his mind
But I’m frightened of the things I might find
Oh, there must be something he’s thinking of
To tear him away-a-ay
When I tell him that I’m falling in love
Why does he say-a-ay

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Uh-ah

I try so hard not to get upset
Because I know all the trouble I’ll get
Oh, he tells me tears are something to hide
And something to fear-eh-eh
And I try so hard to keep it inside
So no one can hear

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Uh-ah

Oh!
He wants me, but only part of the time
He wants me, if he can keep me in line

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, shut up now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, darling, she might overhear
Hush, hush – voices carry
He said shut up – he said shut up
Oh God can’t you keep it down
Voices carry
Hush hush, voices carry

Girlfriend Continues to Lead Photographer Around the World

TwistedSifter

 

Like so many creative projects, Follow me / #followmeto began rather serendipitously. Photographer Murad Osmann and his partner Nataly Zakharova are passionate travellers but Nataly was growing frustrated with Murad always being preoccupied with his camera wherever they went. She literally resorted to dragging him by hand from place to place to keep them moving.

It was that perspective of Murad being led by Nataly that inspired the ongoing photo series that has exploded in popularity on Instagram, Facebook and Google+.

We first featured the wanderlust couple back in March. Since then the two have continued to visit amazing places around the globe, inspiring travellers and photographers to capture the world around us in a fresh and creative way.

“I Melt With You” (Modern English)

Moving forward using all my breath 
Making love to you was never second best 
I saw the world crashing all around your face 
Never really knowing it was always mesh & lace 

I’ll stop the world & melt with you 
You’ve seen the difference & it’s getting better all the time 
There’s nothing you & I won’t do 
I’ll stop the world & melt with you

The Meaning of Happiness

Cold

storm and merry go roundMy youngest daughter, Josephine, had a birthday this past Friday the 13th.

At seven, she is dreamy, funny, contemplative and just delighted with herself. Typical of her age cohort, she tore apart her wrapping paper with a fiendish glee, strutted around in her brand new mermaid tail (though she has her doubts that mermaids actually exist, she still holds out hope that she can become one, say, as a career or lifestyle choice), and spent half the day talking to herself in the mirror as she is apt to do.

It was during one of these mirror episodes that she turned to me suddenly and said, “Mom, was the day I was born just the happiest day of your life?”

Huh.

It was not.

The day of her birth and the subsequent few years were by most standards pretty horrible, in fact. Not post-apocalyptic horrible, but bad enough so that…
