No Mermaid

Snapshot_022

Some days the water calls to me and I beckon you to join me. I am not a mermaid but I give the siren’s call. The hand is outstretched. Will you take it?

“No Mermaid” – Joan Baez

We went down to the edge of the water
You were afraid to go in
You said there might be sharks out there in the ocean
And I said I’m only going for a swim

I was swimming around in a circle
I wasn’t always in view
You said we might get into red flag danger
And I am alone when I’m not with you

But I am no mermaid
I am no mermaid
And I am no fisherman’s slave
I am no mermaid
I am no mermaid
I keep my head above the waves

We were swinging from the centre of the ceiling
You were afraid to give in
I said I know I’ll always live for this feeling
And you closed your eyes you said never again

We were dancing in the middle of the desert
You said we’ll burn under the hot sun
I said I’d rather be the colour of pleasure
Than watch like you from under the thumb

But I am no mermaid
I am no mermaid
And I am no fisherman’s slave
I am no mermaid
I am no mermaid
I keep my head above the waves

We went down to the edge of the water
You were afraid to go in
You said there might be sharks out there in the ocean
And I said I’m only going for a swim

I was living around in a circle
I wasn’t always in view
You said we might get into red flag danger
And I am alone when I’m not with you

But I am no mermaid
I am no mermaid
And I am no fisherman’s slave
I am no mermaid
I am no mermaid
I keep my head above the wave

 

 

 

 

 

Lonely is the Night

Snapshot_015

Lonely is the night when you are away. I think of my demons and what might have been. The stars are the guide to my thoughts. You are a million miles away.

Lonely is the Night – Billy Squire

Lonely is the night when you find yourself alone
Your demons come to light and your mind is not your own
Lonely is the night when there’s no one left to call
You feel the time is right, say the writing’s on the wall
It’s a high time to fight when the walls are closin’ in
Call it what you like it’s time you got to win
Lonely, lonely, lonely your spirit’s sinkin’ down
You find you’re not the only stranger in this town
Red lights, green lights, stop and go jive
Headlines, deadlines jammin’ your mind
You been stealin’ shots from the side
Let your feeling’s go for a ride
There’s danger out tonight, the man is on the prowl
Get the dynamite, the boys are set to howl
Lonely is the night when you hear the voices call
Are you ready for a fight, do you wanna take it all?
Slowdown, showdown waitin’ on line
Show time, no time for changin’ your mind
Streets are ringin’, march to the sound
Let your secrets follow you down
Somebody’s watchin’ you baby, so much you can do
Nobody’s stoppin’ you baby, from makin’ it too
One glimpse’ll show you now baby, what the music can do
One kiss’ll show you now baby, it can happen to you
No more sleepin’, wastin’ our time
Midnight creepin’s, first on our minds
No more lazin’ ’round the TV
You’ll go crazy, come out with me
Feelin’ lonely
Lonely is the night
Feelin’ lonely
Lonely is the night
Lonely, lonely, lonely

 

 

Freedom is the Word

Snapshot_035

Let’s get wild and paint it all! I like to be free and color makes me happy. I think we should always do what makes us happy. Life is too short to always do things that make you unhappy. It’s your personal zen, make it what you want.  Wouldn’t it be grand if we could just do that all the time? These Go-Go boots from 1313 Mockingbird Lane remind me of a time where freedom was the word.

“Freedom”

Dierks Bentley

It’s the keys to your daddy’s car
It’s a night alone underneath the desert stars
It’s a five o’clock whistle
It’s the classroom bell
It’s a Panama City at the window yell
A first kiss after a broken heart

We all wanna break the chains
Feel the wind against our face
Everybody wants the same thing
We wanna taste that freedom (freedom)
Everybody ’round here wanna taste that freedom (freedom)
Freedom

It’s a pocket full of folded cash
It’s telling that boss he can kiss your ass
That ticket to your favorite show
Getting lost in the rock n roll
Close your eyes, hands up high
Go on and let it all go-oh

We all wanna break the chains
Feel the wind against our face
Everybody wants the same thing
We wanna taste that freedom (freedom)
Everybody ’round here wanna taste that freedom (freedom)
Freedom

Freedom
Everybody ’round here wanna taste that freedom (freedom, freedom)
That flag on a solider’s sleeve
All around the world they know what it means
And they all just wanna little piece of freedom, yeah
That flag on a solider’s sleeve
All around the world they know what it means
And they all want just a little piece of this freedom, yeah

We all wanna break the chains
Feel the wind against our face
Everybody wants the same thing
We wanna taste that freedom (freedom)
Everybody ’round here wanna taste that freedom (freedom)

 

Already Gone

Snapshot_029

I left a note before I left to wake me up before you go-go but before he woke I was already gone. Time to hit the road and not look back. For a gypsy soul and free spirit, traveling can take us on a road less traveled. The sun is going down but I am sure another car will be along soon.

For Rewind – Summer of Love which opens on June 15th.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sunny%20Shores/173/66/23

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they’re haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye
Even without fists held high, yeah
Never would have worked out right, yeah
We were never meant for do or die
I didn’t want us to burn out
I didn’t come here to hurt you now
I can’t stop
I want you to know
That it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road
Someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I’m already gone
Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you’ll find another
That doesn’t always make you wanna cry
Started with a perfect kiss
Then we could feel the poison set in
Perfect couldn’t keep this love alive
You know that I love you so
I love you enough to let you go
I want you to know
That it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road
Someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I’m already gone
I’m already gone
I’m already gone
You can’t make it feel right
When you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone
Already gone
There’s no moving on
So I’m already gone

Gypsy Soul

Snapshot_014

They say music soothes the soul and to a bohemian heart like mine it is life. Always dance like no one is looking and lose yourself in the music in the air and you will never feel lonely. I am a wanderer, a lover of nature, a lover of music and a free-spirit. Music brings people together and can create bonds with the most unlikely of companions. I am free to dance, to sing and to be me.

Gypsy
By: Fleetwood Mac

So I’m back to the velvet underground
Back to the floor that I love
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was
To the gypsy that I was
And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does, well
Lightning strikes maybe once, maybe twice
Oh and it lights up the night
And you see you’re a gypsy
You see you’re a gypsy
To the gypsy
That remains
Her face says freedom
With a little fear
I have no fear
I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love
She is dancing away from you now
She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And her memory is all that is left for you now
You see you’re a gypsy, oh
You see you’re a gypsy
Ooh ooh, oh oh, oh oh oh
Goodness strikes
Maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you
Ooh oh, and it all comes down to you
Lightning strikes
Maybe once, maybe twice (oh)
I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
(And it all comes down to you)

Peace comes in many forms. This is my zen. With or without clothing. I find myself and reflect on my path. Won’t you come with me? Let’s find out peace together.

Come with Me
(Written and Composed by Scott Woodruff)

something’s coming up over me
and the sun is coming up already
it’s been three whole days since I’ve been asleep
I couldn’t tell you what’s coming over me

Oh why can’t I sleep
Oh why can’t i breath

the waves are crashing outside, my mind is so calm
and all the pain I had, well it’s all gone
I got no reason to hide, no reason to go
I got to take a step back, and take life slow

Oh won’t you wait for me
Oh won’t you come with me

remember those times when life was real
we was sitting in the sand, got the ocean feel
take me back to those days of paradise
when we laugh all day and sleep all night

Oh won’t you come with me
Oh won’t you come with me
Oh won’t you come with me
Oh won’t you come with me

She’s a Beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Fantasy and roleplaying are two of my favorite things and these things I picked up at the Oh My Gacha event from (*<*) 1313 Mockingbird Lane fit the bill. Fairies and animals go together and I was there for this cute snap getting to know some foxes.

She’s a Beauty – The Tubes
Step right up and don’t be shy
Because you will not believe your eyes
She’s right here behind the glass
And you’re gonna like her
‘Cause she’s got class
You can look inside another world
You get to talk to a pretty girl
She’s everything you dream about
But don’t fall in love
She’s a beauty
She’s one in a million girls
She’s a beauty
Why would I lie?
Why would I lie?
You can say anything you like
But you can’t touch the merchandise
She’ll give you every penny’s worth
But it will cost you a dollar first
You can step outside your little world
You can talk to a pretty girl
She’s everything you dream about
But don’t fall in love
She’s a beauty
She’s one in a million girls
One in a million girls
Why would I lie?
Why would I lie?
But don’t fall in love
‘Cause if you do, you’ll find out she don’t love you
She’s one in a million girls
One in a million girls
Why would I lie?
Now, why would I lie?

Sunshine Blues

I always like to reflect the seasons in my dress. With Spring here, of course, I want to enjoy wearing shoes that reflect the way I feel. Shoes are expressionistic. Styles, colors and even shapes. What girl doesn’t like shoes? These shoes from (*<*) 1313 Mockingbird Lane make me sing like a bird.

Sunshine Blues – The Bahamas

Sunset sings the sweetest tune
Just the song he wrote for his true love in bloom
I held you dear since the dawn of time
You know it’s true that for you I shine
Going up, you’re coming down
I’m only hoping some day you’ll turn around
Cause I’d be shining and then you’ll see
Who could love you more than me?
How I wish you felt the same
I’m jealous of the wolves when they howl out your name
I send my love bouncing from star to star
So it can find you wherever you are
I’m going up, you’re coming down
I’m only hoping some day you’ll turn around
Cause I’d be shining and then you’ll see
Who could love you more than me?
Ah who could love you more than me
No one could love you more than me

Waiting Outside the Lines

Thinking

Sometimes you need a moment. Sometimes you need to wait. Sometimes you find just the right thing at the right time with the right person and it all comes together. I love mixing and matching outfits to make a creative outfit seem all new and fresh. I like thinking outside the box and showing off my style. I waited and wasn’t disappointed for the Red Light District for (*<*)1313 Mockingbird Lane’s contribution to this event. Pairing it with the items from the pocket gacha only made it that much sweeter.

“Waiting Outside The Lines” – Grayson Chance

You’ll never enjoy your life,
Living inside the box
You’re so afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top?Rules and regulations,
Force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation,
It’s time for you to seize the dayInstead of just sitting around
And looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
The time is now

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
Even if it’s just tonight
How you gonna walk ahead
If you keep living blind?

Stuck in the same position,
You deserve so much more
There’s a whole world around us,
Just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
And looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
The time is now, just let it go

Don’t wanna have to force you to smile
I’m here to help you notice the rainbow
‘Cause I know what’s in you is out there

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I Believe I Can Fly

Snapshot_008

Butterflies are beautiful. They are taking something  ugly and making it into color and beauty. I believe I can fly means even as an adult I still have the whimsy in me and this year’s event brought it out in spades.

“I Believe I Can Fly” – R. Kelly

I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me, oh

If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it
