Day 325 - Little China Girl

Such a beautiful picture…

That it reminded me of the David Bowie song.

Day 310 - Say Something.

“Say Something”

Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’ll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I’m still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye

Say something, I’m giving up on you
And I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
And anywhere I would’ve followed you (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Say something, I’m giving up on you

Say something, I’m giving up on you
Say something…

~A Great Big World.

Say something… I am. Giving up on you.

Day 283 - Sunset in a Bottle

I recently heard Jim Croce singing Time in a Bottle on the radio, for the first time in a long time. Beautiful lyrics.

There are lots of things I’d like to save in a bottle, to keep safe, take out and experience all over again.

The smiles of my children through the ages. Sunsets and dramatic skies. Those head-over-heels in love moments. Time. Giggles. Cuddles and hugs. Purple. Precious moments with ones we’ve lost. The way hospitals used to smell. A rainbow. The first movements of a child inside me. Love. So much more…

Here are the lyrics to the Jim Croce song…

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

Day 200 - Cold Play

When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I…

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I…

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Cold Play.

Been listening to this a lot again recently…

Day 115 - Until the Night

“I never ask you where you go
After I leave you in the morning
We go our different ways, to separate situations
It’s not that easy anymore

Today I do what must be done
I give my time to total strangers
But now it feels as though the day goes on forever
More than it ever did before

When the sun goes down
And the day is over
When the last of the light has gone
As they pour into the street
I will be getting closer
As the cars turn their headlights on
While they’re closing it down
We’re gonna open it up
And while they’re going to sleep
We’ll just be starting to touch
I’m just beginning to feel
I’m just beginning to give
I’m just beginning to feel
I’m just beginning to live
Before I leave you again
Before the light of the dawn
Before this evening can end
I have been waiting so long” ~Billy Joel

A self-indulgent Billy Joel moment…

Day 93 - Purple She

‘I tend to laugh just a little too loud
What’s on my mind usually comes out my mouth
I’ve never been one to blend in the crowd
But I’m ok with that
I lose my keys and I’m constantly late
I’m comfortable a couple pounds overweight
I’m gonna eat when I’m out on a date
Cause that’s just who I am

I’m gonna live my life out loud
Sing the truth, lay it all right out there
For the whole wide world to see
And if you’re gonna love me
Then you’re gonna love me for me’ ~Bomshel

Day 60 - Swirling Clouds in Violet Haze

Starry starry night, paint your palette blue and grey
Look out on a summer’s day with eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Shadows on the hills, sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills, in colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand what you tried to say to me
How you suffered for you sanity How you tried to set them free
They would not listen they did not know how, perhaps they’ll listen now

Starry starry night, flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue
Colors changing hue, morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand

For they could not love you, but still your love was true
And when no hope was left in sight, on that starry starry night
You took your life as lovers often do,
But I could have told you, Vincent,
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you

Starry, starry night, portraits hung in empty halls
Frameless heads on nameless walls with eyes that watch the world and can’t forget.
Like the stranger that you’ve met, the ragged man in ragged clothes
The silver thorn of bloody rose, lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me
How you suffered for you sanity How you tried to set them free
They would not listen they’re not listening still
Perhaps they never will. ~Don McLean
