Uptown Girl

Uptown girl

 

Uptown girl
She’s been living in her uptown world
I bet she never had a backstreet guy
I bet her mama never told her why

I’m gonna try for an uptown girl
She’s been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s looking for a downtown man
That’s what I am

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

She’ll see I’m not so tough
Just because
I’m in love with an uptown girl

You know I’ve seen her in her uptown world
She’s getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She’s got a choice

Uptown girl
You know I can’t afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She’ll understand what kind of guy I’ve been
And then I’ll win

And when she’s walking
She’s looking so fine
And when she’s talking
She’ll say that she’s mine

She’ll say I’m not so tough
Just because
I’m in love
With an uptown girl

She’s been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s looking for a downtown man
That’s what I am

Uptown girl
She’s my uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl

Stay with me

stay with me

[Verse 1:]
Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love ’cause I’m just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don’t want you to leave, will you hold my hand?[Chorus:]
Oh, won’t you stay with me?
‘Cause you’re all I need
This ain’t love, it’s clear to see
But darling, stay with me[Verse 2:]
Why am I so emotional?
No, it’s not a good look, gain some self-control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn’t hurt

[Chorus 3x]

Blowin’ in the wind

Blowin' in the Wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take ’til he knows
That too many people have died?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

I was recently chosen as a new blogger for Kaithleen’s (thank you so much!), and when I opened up the blogger box I saw that there were some silks in there. At first I dismissed them, I’ve worn silks before in SL and never found them that great (but that was back in the day of flexi!), but I kept getting drawn back to them and I’m so glad I was. These silks are absolutely gorgeous! If you missed out on getting them at September’s round of We Love Roleplay, get them now in store, I assure you you will love them. Once I had the silks on I was immediately struck with doing a more whimsical scene for this pic. I had seen the gorgeous umbrella’s from Astralia on a few pics to popped along to The Seasons Story to grab my own – I also made the mistake of looking at other booths and ended up spending a few too many L, whoops!

I’m Blue

I'm Blue

Yo listen up here’s a story
About a little guy that lives in a blue world
And all day and all night and everything he sees
Is just blue like him inside and outside
Blue his house with a blue little window
And a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him and himself
And everybody around
‘Cause he ain’t got nobody to listen to

I’m blue da ba dee da ba die…

I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the colour of all that I wear.
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around,
Blue like my corvette, it’s in and outside.
Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

I’m blue da ba dee da ba die…

Rolling in the deep

Rolling in the deep

 

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, it’s bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
[Clean version:] Go ‘head and sell me out and I’ll lay your ship bare
[Explicit version:] Go ‘head and sell me out and I’ll lay your shit bare
See how I leave with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch
And it’s bringing me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it, to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

Baby, I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one on you
And I’m gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Make a home down there
As mine sure won’t be shared

(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
The scars of your love remind me of us
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it, to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
But you played it, with a beating

Heart of glass

Heart of Glass

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We could’ve made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out I had a heart of glass [radio version]
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass [album version]
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

~heart of glass~blondie~

Am loving this gacha combo from evoLove and Nunu available at Tres ChicNunu have done a fabulous job on the black and white skins for both male and female and, as always, evoLove have been artistic in their portrayal of a chess set.  The skins, the Queen and the chess board are the rares in this gacha – the black skin being the ultra rare. There are also four different pawns, the King, the Bishop and a Rook in there.

From the gacha, as well as the chess board, I have used in this pic

Burning Heart

Burning Heart

Does it feel the same
When he calls your name
And does it feel the same
When you play the game
Of love

When he holds you tight
Does it feel alright
Just like it used to do
When I was with you
Making love to you

This burning heart of mine
It still hurts after all this time
This burning heart in me
Won’t let me be

After all this time
You still haunt my mind
I just can’t seem to find
The peace of mind
I need so bad

Does it feel the same
When he calls your name
And does it feel the same
When you play the game
Of love

This burning heart of mine
It still hurts after all this time
This burning heart in me
Won’t let me be
Won’t let me be

This burning heart of mine
It still hurts after all this time
This burning heart in me
Won’t let me be

Solo

This burning heart of mine
It still hurts after all this time
This burning heart in me
Won’t let me be
Won’t let me be

This burning heart of mine
It still hurts after all this time
This burning heart in me
Won’t let me be

Oooh, won’t you let me be

My very good friend, JP, asked me to do a picture for a favourite song of his. This wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I went out looking for a location to take the pic, but the construction area at the new Corruption build turned out to be just perfect!

Nature

Nature

Through falling leaves I pick my way slowly
Talking aloud – eases my mind
Sunlight filters through – I feel my head is drifting
So full of thoughts – I thought
What am I going to do?
I need some thoughts that are new

Doo doo doo…
Dee dee dee …
Nature – enter me

Up in a tree a bird sings so sweetly
Nature’s own voice – I hear
Rustling whistling leaves turning breeze to speech
Call to me now – ease my mind
I’ll turn something new
My mind’s laid with dew

Nature – enter me

I’ll turn something new
My mind’s laid with dew

Nature – enter me

Mad World

Mad World

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It’s a very, very mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It’s a very, very mad world, mad world

Enlarging your world
Mad world

I think this pose, The Raven Witch, from Something New works fabulously with these fun stockings from AviCandy (who have just taken me on as a blogger, thank you!) – they have the words “We’re all mad here” along with a pic of the Mad Hatter. The pose is available at Something New’s great Halloween Haunted Shop.

It’s a man’s man’s man’s world

It's a man's man's man's world

This is a man’s world
This is a man’s world
But it would be nothing, nothing
Without a woman or a girl

[Verse 1:]
You see, man made the car
To take us over the road
Man made the train
To carry the heavy load
Man made the electrolight
To take us out of the dark
Man made the boat for the water
Like Noah made The Ark

This is a man’s, man’s, man’s world
But it would be nothing, nothing
Without a woman or a girl

[Verse 2:]
Man thinks about a little bit of baby girls and a baby boys
Man make them happy
‘Cause man make them toys
And after man make everything
Everything he can
You know that man makes money
To buy from other man

This is a man’s world
But it would be nothing, nothing
Not one little thing
Without a women or a girl

He’s lost in the wilderness
He’s lost in bitterness
