  I find you in the morning After dreams of distant signs You pour yourself over me Like the sun through the blinds You lift me up And get me out Keep me walking But never shout Hold the secret close I hear you say You know the way It twists and turns Changing color Spinning yarns You know the way It leaves you dry It cuts you up And takes you high You know the way It’s painted gold Is it honey Is it cold You know the way It throws about It takes you in And spits you … Continue reading OPTSotD- Peter Murphy

Three important rules for breaking up Don’t put off breaking up when you know you want to Prolonging the situation only makes it worse Tell him honestly, simply, kindly, but firmly Don’t make a big production Don’t make up an elaborate story This will help you avoid a big tear-jerking scene If you want to date other people say so Be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected Even if you’ve gone together for only a short time, And haven’t been too serious There’s still a feeling of rejection when someone says She preferres the company of others … Continue reading OP’s TSotD-Nada Surf

Another best album of the year candidate IMO.  These kids rock, like a modern Blondie. Great, great music.   I was a lone wolf I thought I lost my pack Where are my ladies? Nobody has my back Girl, I should’ve stayed Maybe another day When I’m wide awake I told you I told you, I told you I’d be with the guys But I know better now than to be with the guys I was a lone wolf I thought I lost my pack Where are my ladies? I guess that was my fault Girl, I should’ve stayed Maybe … Continue reading Op’s TSotD-Cherry Glazerr
