the Girl in Green (tEsMiNa)











No, Marbella’s on the run in her eastern overcoat
Used to wear a lightbulb dressing gown
Turn it on, then tear it down
Before we went to sleep
So Marbella upped and left, a tuba in a treble clef
Couldn’t walk, she wouldn’t cry
Dreaming was their only time
Dreams are half asleep
When they go sing out, sea out, sea out, sing out, sing out now
Sea out now, sing out now
Sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out now
Sea out now, sing out now
So a washed up carnival has just reduced me to my bones
I never did the washing up
I loved the stains on every cup
They were the only hint I had
Now Marbella’s gone astray somewhere in this blackening Milky Way
I used to colour in the holes
Now I leave them blank
Now it’s only spaces I have cause to thank
Sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out now
Sing out now, sea out now
Sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out now
Sing out now, sing out
Well, Marbella is my guest, I treat her just like all the rest
Whisper fairytales of Neverland
Throw the pennies in her hand
Stroke her hair and tell her I’ve been cheating
Sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out, sing out now
Sing out now, sing out now
Sea out, sea out, sea out, sea out, sea out now
Sing out now, sing out now

{November 27, 2008}   the cold side of the pillow…

You cool your bedwarm hands down
On the broken radiator

When you lay them freezing on me
I mumble can you wake me later

But I don’t really want you to stop
And you know it so it doesn’t stop you

You run your hands from my neck
To my chest

Crack the shutters open wide
I want to bathe you in the light of day

And just watch you as the rays
Tangle around your face and body

I could sit here for hours
Finding new ways to be awed each minute

‘Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you

Its been minutes Its been days,
I remember all I will remember

Happy lost in your hair
And the cold side of the pillow

Your hills and valleys
Are mapped by my intrepid fingers

And in a naked slumber
I dream all this again

{November 24, 2008}   baby BLUE…

I don’t think you should wait nor a minute more
‘Cause che’s a girl that you’ve been waiting for
Funny how the noises that I’m making
Can’t drown the sound of my heart breaking

Baby Blue
I don’t know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you.

Just one brief glance was all that I needed to
Believe that you might feel what I feel for you
In the night I wake up after breathing
No fish (?), you’re calling to me in my dreaming

Baby Blue
I don’t know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you

No ageless trance will rush up to meet me and feign
The love will remain

Baby Blue
I don’t know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you

For pleasure glows if only I find a blue (?)
In the night, into his room
Brush his lips, wait ’till the morning
In his eyes a new love dawning

Baby Blue
I don’t know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you

{November 22, 2008}   and you give yourself away…

Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she’s got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you
With or without you
U2



I don’t want this moment to ever end
Where everythings nothing without you
I’ll wait here forever just to, to see you smile
‘Cause it’s true, I am nothing without you

Through it all, I made my mistakes
I stumble and fall, but I mean these words

I want you to know
With everything I won’t let this go, these words are my heart and soul
I’ll hold on to this moment you know, ‘as I bleed my heart out to show
And I won’t let go

Thoughts read unspoken, forever in doubt
Pieces of memories fall to the ground
I know what I didn’t have so, I won’t let this go
‘Cause it’s true, I am nothing without you

All the streets where I walked alone, with nowhere to go
I’ve come to an end

I want you to know
With everything I won’t let this go, these words are my heart and soul
I’ll hold on to this moment you know, ‘as I bleed my heart out to show
And I won’t let go

In front of your eyes, it falls from the skies
When you don’t know what you’re looking to find
In front of your eyes, it falls from the skies
When you just never know what you will find (what you will find)

I don’t want this moment to ever end
Where everythings nothing without you

I want you to know
With everything I won’t let this go, these words are my heart and soul
I’ll hold on to this moment you know, ‘as I bleed my heart out to show
And I won’t let go (I want you to know)
With everything I won’t let this go, these words are my heart and soul
I’ll hold on to this moment you know, ‘as I bleed my heart out to show
And I won’t let go

Sum 41 – with ME



{November 13, 2008}   three wishes…

We’d be so less fragile if we’re
Made from metal and our
Hearts from iron and our
Minds from steel and if we

Built an armor for our
Tender bodies, could we
Love each other, would we
Strive to feel? And…

You…want
Three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes

And then one you’re savin’
For a rainy day
If your lover ever takes
Her love away

You say you want to know her
Like your lover and
Undo her damage, she’ll be
New again

Soon, you’ll find that if you
Try to save her, it re-
News her anger
You will never win, then…

You’ll…want
Three wishes:
You want never bitter and
All delicious

And then one you’re savin’
For a rainy day
If your lover ever takes
Her love away

You…want
Three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes

You want never bitter
And all delicious
And a clean conscience
And all its blisses

You are one true lover
With a thousand kisses
You are soft and gentle
And never vicious

And then one you’re savin’
For a rainy day
If your lover ever takes
Her love away

The Pierces-Three Wishes



{November 13, 2008}   shadows falling in the dust…

All that will remain of us,
Are a thousand voices floating in the atmosphere,
Shadows falling in the dust,
And I hear your voice singled out and I want to say,
You and I will never die,
So don’t think about all the space in-between us,
Get that rubbish off your mind,
And how many times can I tell you I love you?

You never believed in yourself,
You’re living life upon a shelf,
And now that the city’s burning,

You’re radioing in,
I’m radioing out,
Come-in anyone,
Is there anyone around?
All I want to say,
What’s it all about?
Radioing in,
I’m radioing out……

Walking down a corridor,
And I hear the sound of conversations through these walls,
Feeling like a lonely soul,
As the ghosts in the shadows sing-along with the radio,
You and I will never die,
And as the sun’s streaming in through the windows from the streets outside,
Come on baby its alright,
And how many times can I tell you I love you?

You never believed in yourself,
You’re living life upon a shelf,
And now that the city’s burning,

You’re radioing in,
I’m radioing out,
Come-in anyone,
Is there anyone around?
All I want to say,
What’s it all about?
Radioing in,
I’m radioing out……
I’m radioing out……
I’m radioing out……
I’m radioing out……
I’m radioing out……

All that will remain of us,
Are a thousand voices floating in the atmosphere,
Shadows falling in the dust,
And how many times can I tell you I love you?

{November 10, 2008}   LOVE is the END…

Now is the time of our comfort and plenty
These are the days we’ve been working for
Nothing can touch us and nothing can harm us
And nothing goes wrong anymore

Singing a song with your feet on the dashboard
The cigarette streaming into the night
These are the things that I want to remember
I want to remember you by

It won’t come again
Cos love is the end
Oh no, My friend
Love is the end

I took off my clothes and I ran to the ocean
Looking for somewhere to start a-new
And when I was drowning in that holy water
All I could think of was you

Woah, My friend
Love is the end
So let’s not pretend
Cos love is the end

Take it back, Don’t let it die
Or rage against the fallen night
Cos I still do, Depend on you
So don’t say those words, You wrung me through

Woah, Oh Oh
Love is the end
So let’s not pretend
Cos love is the end

So I tread the only road
The only road I know
Nowhere to go, but home
Nowhere to go
Maybe our time is up
But still you can’t look back
But all the principles of love
Don’t say those words
Don’t say those words
Don’t say those words
Don’t say those words.

Love is the end – KEANE



{November 7, 2008}   wrap yourself around me…

I shake through the wreckage for signs of life
Scrolling through the paragraphs
Clicking through the photographs
I wish I could make sense of what we do
Burning down the capitols
Wisest of the animals

Who are you, what are you living for
Tooth for tooth, maybe we’ll go one more
This life, is lived in perfect symmetry
What I do, that will be done to me

Write page after page of analysis
Looking for the final score
We’re no closer than we were before
Who are you, what are you fighting for
Holy truth, brother I chose this mortal life
lived in perfect symmetry
What I do, that will be done to me

As the needle, slips into the run out groove
Love, maybe you feel it too
And maybe you find, life is unkind
and over so soon
There is no golden gate
There’s no heaven waiting for you
Oh boy you otta leave this town
get out while you can
the needle’s running out
The voices in the streets you love
everything is better when you hear that shout
woooaohhh
woooaohhh
woooaohhh

spineless dreamers, hide in churches
pieces of pieces of rush hour buses
I dream in emails, worn out phrases
mile after mile of just empty pages

wrap yourself around me
wrap yourself around me

as the needle, slips into the run out groove
maybe i’ll feel it too
maybe you’ll feel it too
maybe you’ll feel it too
maybe you’ll feel it too
I dream in emails, worn out phrases
mile after mile of just empty pages
