Sometimes, going through the worst stuff is just priming you for blessings you can’t even be ready for.

Knockout

I’ve heard it said that nothing ever comes too easy-
Its worth it for a knockout just like you.
(I’m thinking always of you too.)
My hand vibrates-
I’m drooling just to dial your number.
Neuroses as buxom as mine get misconstrued

If I wait will it pass me by?
I’m already on your doorstep now.
(It’s in the fetching way you flirt.)
Tugging on my hair, smoothing my brow-
It’s alright now.

What would you say?
What would you do
If I asked you?
Letting this bloom-
Take me home soon-
I’m attached to you.
Swear I won’t lie-
Clumsy and shy-
But, I’ll dance with you.
What would you say?
What would you do
If I asked you?

I mumble lines that Dangerfield would scoff at
While I try to remain contact with your skin.

(Love the way you tremble and you quake.)
I hope you see the greater man that I’m pregnant with
'Cause as of right now, I'm not so masculine.

I would love to wander with you-
Take me where the trees grow up side down.
(It’s in your beaming big blue eyes.)
We found it where there is no up or down.
You’re mine now.

What would you say?
What would you do
If I asked you?
Letting this bloom-
Take me home soon-
I’m attached to you.
Swear I won’t lie-
Clumsy and shy-
But, I’ll dance with you.
What would you say?
What would you do
If I asked you?

What’s your favorite way too spoon?
(Any way is the perfect way with you.)
Will you let me in your room?
(Kiss me quick-my dad will be home soon.)
Should I keep or lose the beard?
(You could go bald and not look weird.)

 I’m already on your doorstep now.
(So, now, I’m finally feeling brave.)
Tugging on my hair, smoothing my brow-
It’s alright now.

If I wait will it pass me by?
I’m already on your doorstep now.
(Its in the fetching way you flirt)
Tugging on my hair, smoothing my brow-
It’s alright now.

What would you say?
What would you do
If I asked you?
Letting this bloom-
Take me home soon-
I’m attached to you.
Swear I won’t lie-
Clumsy and shy-
But, I’ll dance with you.
What would you say?
What would you do
If I asked you?
(If you asked me)
If I asked you?
(If you asked me)
If I asked you?
(If you asked me)


I am not sure if these are 100% correct but, this is what I hear.
Too cute. :)

On making life beautiful

I want to make my life beautiful. Not good, or honorable, or even flawless. Beautiful.

Flawed in its perfection and unhurried in its urgency. I want to have a purpose-a driving force. 

I want to taste the breeze of every great city.-Say Anything, “Admit It!!!”

I want to go places, do things and be content. I need to work out who I am. I want to know my own meaning. My strengths and my many,many flaws. 

I want to share in a love that will make us better, even if only for a while. I want to leave my mark on someone, a comforting scar that will stay with them long after I leave,like a worry stone.

I don’t know. I want to make something beautiful happen and I don’t know how. 

That is infinitely frustrating to me right now.

-Beez

3 : my top 10 favourite songs.
So glad someone asked this one!
In no particular order except for the first one. The first one is constant, the rest change pretty frequently so, right now…

  1. I Could Be There For You by Eisley (It has been my number one since 2007)
  2. Not The Sun by Brand New
  3. The Difference Between Poison and Medicine… by Circa Survive
  4. Smarter by Eisley
  5. Spidersong by Say Anything
  6. You’re So Vain by Carly Simon (go ahead and judge…)
  7. To Be Alone With You by Sufjan Stevens
  8. Andria by La Dispute
  9. Satellite Mind by Metric
  10. Broken Horse by Freelance Whales

14 : my favourite film soundtrack.
Either the Pride & Prejudice Soundtrack by Dario Marianelli or the Amelie soundtrack produced by Yann Tiersen

17 : a song i dislike from my favourite band.
Eisley is my favorite band and, I think I’m going to go with “If You’re Wondering.” It’s not bad even, it’s just…meh.

And when you’re good & close,
I think I’ll steal your time.
They can shoot on sight,
But it’s alright.
