I'm levitating

Music

Legions (A Song by Zoe Keating); Frienemy (A Poem)


Back and forth, back and forth
And back and forth
Back and forth, back and forth
And back and forth

Arguments fly, words spoken
The theater is set
Intentions lie, promises broken
The theater is set

Walk with me
Don’t walk with me
Happy to talk
Please don’t bother me

Sea
Trees
Birds
Path
Decision


The Saddest Song in the World (A Song by Meiko)


I wake up and you’re gone
The TV’s still on
And I sit and I watch another rerun
She is left all alone
Her lover’s out to sea
And I can’t help but feel that she is just like me

And I gave all I could but it wasn’t good enough
And you said that you would be here before I woke up
Now you’re gone

I don’t know why my heart still beats
And I can’t feel anything

Cuz I gave all I could but it wasn’t good enough
And you said that you would be here before I woke up
Now you’re gone away
Now you’re gone away

Why don’t you take me with you?
Come and take me with you
Come and take me with you
Come and take me with you

Cuz I gave all I could but it wasn’t good enough
And you said that you would be here before I woke up
Now you’re gone


Love of My Life (A Song by Queen)

Thank you.


Leave the Lights On (A Song by Meiko)


We’re in the dark. It’s getting late
I really should go. He’s waiting for me
We both know it’s not what it seems
We both know what’s between the sheets

 I know that it’s a secret and that I gotta keep it
 But I want the lights on. Yeah I want the lights on
 And I don’t wanna run away anymore
 Leave the lights on. Leave the lights on. Leave the lights on

What would they say? What would they do?
Would it be trouble if they knew?
I’m trying hard to make you see
All that you are is all that I need

Let it out. Let it out. Let it out
Let it out. Let it out. Let it out

** Here is the equally beautiful acoustic version. Simply wonderful.

One Year of Love

Words and music by John Deacon

Just one year of love
Is better than a lifetime alone
One sentimental moment in your arms
Is like a shooting star right through my heart
It’s always a rainy day without you
I’m a prisoner of love inside you
I’m falling apart all around you… yeah
My heart cries out to your heart
I’m lonely but you can save me
My hand reaches out for your hand
I’m cold but you light the fire in me
My lips search for your lips
I’m hungry for your touch
There’s so much left unspoken
And all I can do is surrender
To the moment just surrender

And no one ever told me that love would hurt so much
And pain is so close to pleasure
And all I can do is surrender to your love
Just one year of love
Is better than a lifetime alone
One sentimental moment in your arms
Is like a shooting star right through my heart
It’s always a rainy day without you
I’m a prisoner of love inside you
I’m falling apart all around you
And all I can do is surrender
