Someone to love



Lyrics by Kacey Musgraves



We're all hoping, we're all hopeless

We're all thorns and we're all roses

We're all looking down our noses at ourselves

We're all flawed and we're all perfect

We're all lost and we're all hurting

And just searching for somebody to love


We're all liars, we're all legends

We're all tens, I'd want elevens

We're all trying to get to heaven, but not today

We're all happy, we're all hatin'

We're all patiently impatient

And just waiting for somebody to love


We're all good, but we ain't angels

We all sin, but we ain't devils

We're all pots and we're all kettles

But we can't see it in ourselves

We're all livin' 'til we're dying

We ain't cool, but man, we're trying

Just thinking we'll be fixed by someone else


We all wrangle with religion

We all talk, but we don't listen

We're all starving for attention then we'll run

We're all paper, we're all scissors

We're all fightin' with our mirrors

Scared we'll never find somebody to love


We're all good, but we ain't angels

We all sin, but we ain't devils

We're all pots and we're all kettles

But we can't see it in ourselves

We're all livin' 'til we're dying

We ain't cool, but man, we're trying

Thinking we'll be fixed by someone else


Just tryin' to hold it all together

We all wish our best was better

Just hopin' that forever's really real

We'll miss a dime to grab a nickel

Overcomplicate the simple

We're all little kids just looking for love


Yeah, don't we all just want somebody to love?

WHO THE F*** IS...?!

Cry me a river - lyrics

"Cry Me A River"

Now you say you're lonely
You cried the whole night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

And now you say you're sorry,
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river,
I cried a river over you.

You drove me nearly out of my head
While you never shed a tear, babe
Remember, I remember all that you said
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me

And now you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Why don't you cry me a river
Cry me a river
'Cause I cried a river over you, over you

You say you love me but you lie

Now, you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Come on and cry me a river
Oh cry me a river
I cried a river over you

I cried a river over you

I cried a river
Now you can too
Cry me a river
Cry me a river...

Reading books

I'm drawn into the cocoon

of deciphering 
others thoughts 
expressed in written words
and time flies...

Mercy -Steve Jones

Steve Jones Mercy Lyrics

Wastin' time
I can't tell
Hangin' on
To hell as well
You might find
Someone else
We have always
Sold ourselves

Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy and trust?
Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy and trust?

Playing games
See her face
Holdin' on
It's still the same
I might find
Someone else
Love is always
Second best

Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy and trust?
Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy and trust?
And you trust...

Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy and trust?
Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy and trust?

Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy and trust?
Where is the love I've lost?
Where is the mercy?
Where is the mercy?...

Albertine Café in Publier

Santa with the Flottins arrived in Evian yesterday evening which made it impossible to find a parking spot. H and I landed in Publier at Albertine Café for our usual Friday evening drink.
The place was a nice surprise with live impro. jazz.
Very local.
The plate of cheese was decent with two glasses of okay red Bordeaux.
Well worth another try.

Purple rain

"Purple Rain" (1984).
The library in town
also had this Prince movie.
Awful script, badly acted
but definitely some
groovy Prince
classics.

Bob Dylan - The definitive B.D. songbook

I enjoy the library in this little town.
Diving deep into Dylan's lyrics in:
"The definitive Bob Dylan songbook".
325 songs to "scrutinise".

Leaving the Table
Lyrics by Leonard Cohen


I’m leaving the table
I’m out of the game
I don’t know the people
In your picture frame
If I ever loved you, oh no, no
It’s a crying shame
If I ever loved you
If I knew your name
You don’t need a lawyer
I’m not making a claim
You don't need to surrender
I’m not taking aim
I don’t need a lover, no, no, no
The wretched beast is tame
I don’t need a lover
So blow out the flame
There’s nobody missing
There is no reward
Little by little
We’re cutting the cord
We’re spending the treasure, oh no, no
That love cannot afford
I know you can feel it
The sweetness restored
I…
From his last "You want it darker".

Traveling light lyrics by L.C.

I'm traveling light
It's au revoir
My once so bright, my fallen star
I'm running late, they'll close the bar
I used to play one mean guitar
I guess I'm just somebody who
Has given up on the me and you
I'm not alone, I've met a few
Traveling light like we used to do

Good night, good night, my fallen star
I guess you're right, you always are
I know you're right about the blues
You live some life you'd never choose
I'm just a fool, a dreamer who forgot to dream of the me and you
I'm not alone, I've met a few
Traveling light like we used to do

Traveling light
It's au revoir
My once so bright, my fallen star
I'm running late, they'll close the bar
I used to play one mean guitar
I guess I'm just somebody who
Has given up on the me and you
I'm not alone, I've met a few
Traveling light like we used to do

But if the road leads back to you
Must I forget the things I knew
When I was friends with one or two
Traveling light like we used to do
I'm traveling light
