Birdmad Girl

Birdmad Girl, originally uploaded by Anita Mejia.

This girl has got a smile
That can make me cry
This girl just burns with love
She’s burning burning deep outside

Night time night time
Sets my house on fire
I’ll turn into the melting man
I’ll lose my life
To feel I feel desire

Oh I should feel
Like a polar bear
Like a polar bear
It’s impossible

She flies outside this cage
Singing girl-mad words
I keep her dark thoughts deep inside
As black as stone
As mad as birds

Wild wild wild
And never turn away
Sends me all her love
She sends me everything
She sends me everywhere

Oh I could be
A polar bear
Oh I could be
A polar bear
But it’s impossible

I try to talk
The sky goes red
I forget
So fill my head
With some of this
Some of that
Some of every word she said

Oh I should be
A polar bear
But it’s imposible

— Lyrics (The Cure)

Simply a beautiful picture worth sharing…

It makes me think of ‘home’ as if we will gather with everyone we ever loved right here in this field…muted, surreal. And then there is the bird, always… how lovely.

A couple songs to sit with…

“Kind hearts are the gardens, kind thoughts are the roots, kind words are the flowers, and kind deeds are the fruits. Take care of your garden and keep out the weeds, fill it with sunshine kind words and kind deeds.” ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A mesmerizing photograph, a lovely song… and a moving quote. Well worth the share, don’t you think?

For your listening pleasure… a few of my favorite renditions of You are my sunshine

Children – You Are My Sunshine
Gene Autry – You Are My Sunshine
Sara Gazarek – You Are My Sunshine

I am particularly fond of the last by Sara Gazarek!

In lieu of my genetic need to see my species survive, I will continue to bring you different ways you can help save the redheads… watch this video from Stu Stone as he attempts to do a charity cause video for the benefit of all redheads…

Songs lyrics by Rosie Thomas

Monday, April 5th, 2010

I have always loved Rosie…her voice, her music is a gift to me. I couldn’t find the lyrics anywhere for her song, “SONGS” and so I thought I would post them here for my own pleasure (and anyone else’s who stumbles upon them…)

Songs by Rosie Thomas

How
How do I
Get it right
With my life
With a stubborn heart
A puzzled mind
These useless worries
Worries of mine?

And how
How do I
Keep my head
My head up high
When the more I know
The less I feel

A song’s a song
But love is real
Love is real

And how
How do I
Carry on
Carry light
When the whole world
Is in my hands

A song’s a song
But love’s their debt
Love’s their debt

Love’s my chance

Rosie Thomas - In Between EP

Rosie Thomas – In Between EP – Tired
Rosie Thomas - In Between EP - Tired

What if I were to say I love you?
What if I believed it to be true?
Would it be my downfall?
Would it wither all my pride
to admit my world seems lonely without you?
What if I were to ignore all these voices
that seems to spread my body thin?
I know I am not a savior
I need to get that through my head
before my own walls come tumbling in

I’m so tired
And I’m so wired
The fraction seems to brutalize these veins
To just give in might be to win
But it takes an awful lot to find the way

What if I were to just stop breathing
And let those walls coming tumbling in?
What if I stop placing one foot before the other
And failure was my only friend?

I’m so tired
And I’m so wired
The fraction seems to brutalize these veins
To just give in might be to win
But it takes an awful lot to find the way

Gotta find the way
Oh, I’ll find the way

What if I were to just surrender
And failure was my only friend?
What if I were to speak without allowing words to filter through my teeth?
Or turn my skin to glass and let you in?

I’m so tired
And I’m so wired
The fraction seems to brutalize these veins
To just give in might be to win
But it takes an awful lot to find the way

Gotta find the way
So, I’ll find the way.

This song was share-worthy. I simply love it. I love Rosie Thomas’ music full stop.

Cottony Zooey

Friday, September 18th, 2009

Serendipity! I happen to love, LOVE, love cotton. I really would wear it all the time, if I could. I do most days. I sleep with on it. I wrap myself in it. It is wonderful. And I also happen to really enjoy Zooey Deschanel’s voice. It is smooth and beautiful. I fell in love with it whilst watching Elf and continued to love it the 487 I re-watch EACH year. And in the many plays in my car from the soundtrack.

organic-cotton1

Well, recently I was trying to think what was my favorite Christmas song and of course, this one came to mind. Zooey Deschanel singing “Baby, its cold outside!” in Elf. This sent me on a Zooey music hunt… and I couldn’t believe what I found!!!

zooey-deschanel2

Zooey sings for the Cotton: The Fabric of My Life campaign—an entire song! You can listen to here. Or you can download it right here and read along with the lyrics here.

OH! Only I could appreciate a ballad (or two or three) about cotton! Feel it, love it, experience it…

Name this tune…
