I want you to hold onto things that you said…Mazzy Star – Halah

May 3, 2009 at 7:00 pm (Music) ()

Well I think I see another side
Maybe just another light that shines
And I looked over now through the door
And I still belong to no one else
Maybe I hold you to blame
For all the reasons that you left
And close my eyes till I see your surprise
And you’re leavin before my time
Baby won’t you change your mind?
Surely don’t stay long
I’m missing you now
It’s like I told you
I’m over you somehow
Before I close the door
I need to hear you say goodbye
Baby won’t you change your mind?
I guess that hasn’t changed someone
Maybe nobody else could understand
I guess that you believed you are a woman
And that I am someone else’s man
But just before I see that you leave
I want you to hold onto things that you said
Baby I wish I were dead
Surely don’t stay long
I’m missing you now
It’s like I told you
I’m over you somehow
Before I close the door
I need to hear you say goodbye
Baby won’t you change your mind?

Listen to the song here – Mazzy Star – Halah

Bizarre Love Triangle… by New Order

November 30, 2006 at 12:57 am (Music) ()

Every time I think of you
I feel shot right through with a bolt of blue
It’s no problem of mine
But it’s a problem I find
Living a life that I can’t leave behind
But there’s no sense in telling me
The wisdom of the fool won’t set you free
But that’s the way that it goes
And it’s what nobody knows
well every day my confusion growsEvery time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I’m waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can’t say

I feel fine and I feel good
I’m feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way
I just don’t know what to say
Why can’t we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I’m not sure what this could mean
I don’t think you’re what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I’ll never see just what we’re meant to be

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I’m waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can’t say

Putting Out the Fire With Gasoline…

Mmmm Cat People. Who out there remembers that film?

 

Yesterday I bought myself a gorgeous coffee table book called \”Spirit of the Wild Cat\” It is a large, lush book full of photographs of big cats from all over the world.

Just an amazing book on all accounts and so I was inspired by this book to do some drawing.

So here for your viewing pleasure is my drawing on black paper of a black leopard.

Confusingly it is also known as a black panther as is the black jaguar. Jaguars live in South America and leopards live in Africa.

Anyway if you like you can also enjoy David Bowie singing the song that came with the film \”Cat People\”

Enjoy, have a great week!

Love Me xxxx

A Rainy Saturday Afternoon…

So what to do on this rainy Saturday afternoon. While I have this song stuck in my head, I thought I would make an image inspired by the lyrics.

If You Go Away

If you go away, on this summer day
Then you might as well take the sun away
All the birds that flew in the summer sky
When our love was new and our hearts were high
When the day was young and the night was long
And the moon stood still for the night birds\’ song
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away

But if you stay, I\’ll make you a day
Like no day has been or will be again
We\’ll sail the sun, we\’ll ride on the rain
We\’ll talk to the trees and worship the wind
Then if you go, I\’ll understand
Leave me just enough love to hold in my hand
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away, as I know you will
You must tell the world to stop turning till
You return again, if you ever do
For what good is love without loving you
Can I tell you now as you turn to go
I\’ll be dying slowly till the next hello
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
But if you stay I\’ll make you a night
Like no night has been or will be again
I\’ll sail on your smile, I\’ll ride on your touch
I\’ll talk to your eyes that I love so much
But if you go I won\’t cry
Though the good is gone from the word goodbye
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away as I know you must
There\’ll be nothing left in the world to trust
Just an empty room full of empty space
Like the empty look I see on your face
I\’d have been the shadow of your dog
If I thought you might have kept me by your side
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away

Love Me xxx

Sweet Mystery…

October 27, 2006 at 4:57 pm (Music, Uncategorized)

When I was at art college one of the guys in the group of friends I had used to get out his guitar late at night and sing us songs until dawn.

One of the musicians he liked was John Martyn. Very chilled out laid back very late at night winding down music. Recently this memory of music came to me and so I searched out some John Martyn music. This music is associated with such wonderful memories for me, I just love it. So here are the lyrics to one of his songs.

Sweet Little Mystery – John Martyn


Just that sweet little mystery that breaks my heart,
Just that sweet little mystery makes me cry.
O that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart,
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me try. 

My friends all tell me that I look so sad;
They don’t need to ask me why.
Another reason that I feel so bad,
Since the night you said goodbye.
It’s not the letters that you don’t write;
It’s not the arms of some new friend.
It’s not the crying in the dead of the night
That keeps me hanging on, waiting for the end: 
Just that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart;
Just that sweet little mystery makes me cry.
Oh that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart;
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me try. 
I watch the street, I watch the radio;
I don’t need to turn it on.
Another friend comes by and tries to say hello,
Another weekend’s almost gone…
It’s not the letters that you don’t write;
It’s not the arms of some new friend.
It’s not the crying in the depth of the night,
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end: 
It’s that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart;
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me cry.
Oh that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart;
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me try. 
The time is flying fast, and I don’t care
To spend another night alone.
I want to see you, but I don’t know where,
Till then I’m walking on my own.
It’s not the letters that you just don’t write;
It’s not the arms of some new friend.
It’s not the crying in the depth of the night,
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end. 
It’s that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart;
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me cry.
Oh that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart,
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me try. 
That sweet little mystery that’s in your heart;
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me cry.
Oh that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart,
It’s just that sweet little mystery that makes me try. 
Sweet mystery, sweet mystery;
Sweet mystery, sweet mystery, sweet mystery.
Sweet mystery, sweet mystery, sweet mystery;
Sweet mystery, sweet mystery, sweet mystery…
