I don't often post lyrics, because I like words and can generally craft them myself.
But this... is fitting... today.



squint your eyes and look closer
I'm not between you and your ambition
I am a poster girl with no poster
I am thirty-two flavors and then some
and I'm beyond your peripheral vision
so you might want to turn your head
cause someday you're going to get hungry
and eat most of the words you just said

both my parents taught me about good will
and I have done well by their names
just the kindness I've lavished on strangers
is more than I can explain
still there's many who've turned out their porch lights
just so I would think they were not home
and hid in the dark of their windows
til I'd passed and left them alone

and god help you if you are an ugly girl
course too pretty is also your doom
cause everyone harbors a secret hatred
for the prettiest girl in the room
and god help you if you are a pheonix
and you dare to rise up from the ash
a thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy
while you are just flying back

I'm not trying to give my life meaning
by demeaning you
and I would like to state for the record
I did everything that I could do
I'm not saying that I'm a saint
I just don't want to live that way
no, I will never be a saint
but I will always say

squint your eyes and look closer
I'm not between you and your ambition
I am a poster girl with no poster
I am thirty-two flavors and then some
And I'm beyond your peripheral vision
So you might want to turn your head
Cause someday you might find you're starving
and eating all of the words you said

"Of Whoredom and Falconry"
Duke Special and David Ford, off a CD called "It's Not Like Christmas" 2006

I see the lights in Lewes from the top of Cliff High Street
Feel how the wind blows through us from the top of Cliff High Street
And another year is lost as December steals away
And I see the lights in Lewes from the top of Cliff High Street

I hear the bells in Belfast from the top of Castle Street
You say the hope them would last from the top of Castle Street
And another year is lost as December steals away
I hear the bells in Belfast from the top of Castle Street

Maybe a shadow will threaten our view
Maybe my ears will betray this old fool

I see the lights in Lewes
I hear the bells in Belfast
I see the lights in Lewes
I hear the bells in Belfast
I see the lights in Lewes
I hear the bells oh
I see the lights

My old friend,
I recall
The times we had
are hanging on my wall
I wouldn't trade
them for gold
Cause they laugh and they cry me
and somehow sanctify me
And they're woven in the stories I have told
And tell again

My old friend
I apologize
For the years that have passed
since the last time you and I
Dusted off
those memories
But the runnin' and the races
and the people and the places
there was always somewhere else i had to be
And time gets thin
my old friend

Don't know why, don't know why
Don't know why, don't know why

My old friend
this song's for you
Cause a few simple verses
was the least that I could do
To tell the world
that you were here
'Cause the love and the laughter
will live on long after
All of the sadness
and the tears
We'll meet again
my old friend

Goodbye, Goodbye
Goodbye, Goodbye

My old friend

Making Memories Of Us

I'm gonna be here for you baby
I'll be a man of my own word
Speak the language in a voice that you have never heard
I want sleep with you forever
And I want die in your arms
In a cabin by a meadow where the wild bees swarm

(Chorus:)
And I'm gonna love you
like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust making memories of us

I want honor your mother
And I want learn from your pa
I want steal your attention like a bad outlaw
I want stand out in a crowd for you
A man among men
I want make your world better than it's ever been

Chorus

We'll follow the rainbow
Wherever the four winds blow
And there'll be a new day
Comin' your way
I'm gonna be here for you from now on
This you know somehow
You've been stretched to the limits but it's alright now

And I'm going make you a promise
If there's life after this
I'm going be there to meet you with a warm, wet kiss

And I'm going love you
like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust makin' memories of us


And I'm going love you
like nobody loves you
And I'll win your trust makin' memories of us

- Keith Urban
