“God put us here on this carnival ride – we close our eyes, never knowing where it’ll take us next.”
Affirmation – Savage Garden

  1. Waving silver wands to the night birds song, Moonchild – King Crimson (practically all the lyrics from that song, which for some reason nobody seems to get)
    You can’t instruct me, or conduct me, just use up my time, Talk to the wind – King Crimson
    (I’ll get around to reading them all)

    You’ll get by…” – Smile Michael Jackson

    “Everywhere I go
    Every smile I see
    I know you are there

    Cuz’ I can see your star
    Shinin’ down on me” – Together Again Janet Jackson
    “Lord, I believe in You
    I’ll always believe in You
    Though I cant see you with my eyes
    Deep in my heart
    Your presence I find

    And I’ll keep my trust in You
    Let the whole world say what they may
    No one can take this joy away
    Lord, I believe” – Lord I Believe In You Crystal Lewis

  4. When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
    When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
    And I held your hand through all of these years evanescence
    It’s hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere I go
    But I’m doin’ It
    It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
    Still Harder
    Getting up, getting dressed, livin’ with this regret
    But I know if I could do it over rascal flatts
    Cause I know that he knows I’m unfaithful
    And it kills him inside
    To know that I am happy with some other guy
    I can see him dying rihanna

  5. When I was a child i caught a fleeting glimpse , out of the corner of my eye . I turned to look but it was gone , I can not put my finger on it now , the man has crown the child is gone . I have become comfortably numb .

  7. “In the future, can’t wait to see
    If you open up the gates for me
    Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
    Try to black it out, but it plays again

    Give anything to hear half your breath” P.Diddy, i’ll be missing you.
    “I don’t want the world to see me,
