Tale of our existence.

I’ll be seeing you in all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces all day through
In that small cafe’, the park across the way
The children’s carousel, the chestnut trees, the wishing well

I’ll be seeing you in every lovely summer’s day
In everything that’s light and gay
I’ll always think of you that way
I’ll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I’ll be looking at the moon
But I’ll be seeing you

I’ll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I’ll be looking at the moon
But I’ll be seeing you

You keep my secrets.

We used to lie beneath the stars at night
With our hands gripping each other tight

A temporary escape — Trying to find the in-between

Promises, swear them to the sky.

Let’s elope, let this last…

Businessmen drink my bloodLike the kids in art school said they wouldAnd I guess I’ll just begin againYou say can we still be friendsIf I was scared, I wouldAnd if I was bored, you know I wouldAnd if I was yours, but I’m notAll the kids have always knownThat the emperor wears no clothesBut they bow down to him anywayIt’s better than being aloneIf I was scared, I wouldAnd if I was pure, you know I wouldAnd if I was yours, but I’m notNow you’re knocking at my doorSaying please come out with us tonightBut I would rather be aloneThan pretend I feel alrightIf the businessmen drink my bloodLike the kids in art school said they wouldThen I guess I’ll just begin againYou say can we still be friendsIf I was scared, I wouldAnd if I was pure, you know I wouldAnd if I was yours, but I’m notNow I’m Ready to StartIf I was scared, I wouldAnd if I was pure, you know I wouldAnd if I was yours, but I’m notNow I’m Ready to StartNow I’m Ready to StartI would rather be wrongThan live in the shadows of your sunMy mind is open wideAnd now I’m ready to startNow I’m Ready to StartMy mind is open wideNow I’m Ready to StartNot sure you’ll open the doorTo step out into the darkNow I’m ready!

 

Speaking of addictions…

Nine hours and forty six days…

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
since you took your love away
since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
but nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues,

’cause nothing compares
nothing compares to you

It’s been so lonely without you here
like a bird without a song
nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
tell me baby where did I go wrong?
I could put my arms round every boy I see
but they’d only remind me of you
I went to the doctor guess what he told me
guess what he told me
he said girl you better try to have fun
no matter what you do
but he’s a fool

’cause nothing compares
nothing compares to you

All the flowers that you planted mother
in the backyard
all died when you went away
I know that living with you, baby, was sometimes hard
but I’m willing to give it another try

nothing compares
nothing compares to you

Missin’ you, JHo
