Because people don't make love to Angels...
They merely use them to feel more complete.


1. First thing you wash in the shower? My hair/face! I think it is always my hair first.

2. What colour is your favourite hoodie? I do not wear hoodies - never have and I doubt I ever will.

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed, again? Most definitely.

4. Do you plan outfits? I put so little thought and effort into it that, compared to people whom do regularly or seriously I'd have to say that I do not.

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now? Okay - I'm alive - and making progress in accepting my lonely situation... so yeah, okay.

6. What's the closest thing to you that's red? Oooh, I seem to be equidistant from a mug with a red background and a girl in red underwear and several mini-speakers with red LEDs.

7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having? I've been having trouble remembering dreams as of late - I only have vague flashes and the like now. I've mostly dreamed of two ladies of late so I'd have to say their faces stick out the most.

8. Did you meet anybody new today? I nearly always do, working the job I work - and the change in seasons is bringing in the usual load-of-tourists and transients but this is mostly the non-committal, deeply informal and rather ambivalent sort of 'meeting' between people (customer and cashier). But I actually officially met and exchanged names with two customers in the last week I believe.

9. What are you craving right now? A person. If that's not what you meant, then.... nothing really. I already ate and am about to have some coffee. But pastries are always nice.

10. Do you floss? Not one-thousandth as much as I should but yes, occasionally.

11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage? Spring rolls/egg rolls. This Chinese/American restaurant always puts a bunch of cabbage leaves around them when you order out from them. So lovely.

12. Are you emotional? Extremely, but I am also quite logical, controlled and rational but I've never let one preclude the other. Whether or not I let my emotion show or let it show to what degree depends on the situation and appropriateness - whether or not I give in to tears depends on whom I am around, if anyone at all, and what I may say or express and to what degree depends on whom I am expressing myself to, why I am and what our actual relationship is. Temperance! 

13. Have you ever counted to 1,000? One-at-a-time? I doubt it though maybe when I was a kid... I did some odd things, sometimes.

14. Do you bite into your ice-cream or just lick it? I eat it - so both, but mostly biting.

15. Do you like your hair? Yeah, depending on the length. If it is too short or too long, I'm at odds.

16. Do you like yourself? Well enough, yes - I recognize my strengths, weaknesses, oddities, deep faults and difficulties and I have to say that, for the most part, I am proud and content. The only time I do not like myself is when I regard myself from the perspective of others - I cannot, for the life of me, make friends or find a girlfriend. Short answer - yes.

17. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush? No, hell no.

18. What are you listening to right now? My dad talking on the phone in the living room and my CPU fan. I had music on earlier - Answers from Final Fantasy XIV.

19. Are your parents strict? Yes, mostly.

20. Would you go sky diving? Most definitely.

21. Do you like cottage cheese? I do not dislike it and am definitely not against it, but I generally do not seek it, as enjoyable as it is. It has a time and place that I rarely find myself in.

22. Have you ever met a celebrity? Nope.

23. Do you rent movies often? Not really, no, but I do rent from time-to-time and almost exclusively off of Amazon - I rent when I am mostly-sure that I will not like or love the movie I am perusing. Otherwise I just buy it.

24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in? There must be. Not really... maybe that ribbon on the birthday present counts? When you really think about what 'sparkly' is, you realize just how many things are most definitely not.

25. How many countries have you visited? None other than the States, sadly. I may have been conceived overseas, though! I think that would have been Germany...

26. Have you ever made a prank call? Nope, I was a well-behaved kid and I am a better-behaved adult.

27. Have you ever been on a train? Sadly, no. Maybe my parents could correct me though - they have all kinds of knowledge and memories of the past I couldn't begin to imagine.

28. Brown or white eggs? Is there a taste-difference? I'm no egg connoisseur but I've mostly been exposed to white eggs.

29. Do you have a cell phone? Yep. An older slide-phone, but it serves me well especially since I barely ever call or text.

30. Do you use chapstick? Yes, I live in a desert.

31. Do you own a gun? No, I don't really want to either... unless it is a p90. I'd own that gun with pleasure.

32. Can you use chop sticks? Not well, but I've also barely been exposed to them.

33. Who are you going to be with tonight? Who? I'm going to take a wild guess and say "absolutely no one" unfortunately - unless Anastasia gets her head out of her ass... which is very unlikely. Very. Very-very. Even then... nope, no one.

34. Are you too forgiving? I wouldn't say so - I'm pretty rational but also realistic and appreciative and recognizing of circumstances and what constitutes a reason over an excuse. I hold people responsible for things when and if it matters.

35. Ever been in love? Oh, yes, most definitely.

36. What is your best friend doing tomorrow? Locally I have no best friends - I've only got two friends and they're both remote, now, and strictly online - I'd imagine John is either going to work or game his ass off and Derrick is definitely going to work and maybe game a little bit of his ass of. Maybe.

37. Ever had cream puffs? I think I have. Yes, wait, yes I have. Lovely things. Things with cream are delightful.

38. Last time you cried? Last night before work and maaaaybe at work. Maybe. No, maybe not, as much as I have been feeling lately and while I did cry at work yesterday, last night was much too busy. If I did I don't remember. If we're talking about degrees of crying, I last cried 'hard' a few days ago and before that... hmm, January 03 and before that a year and change ago.

39. What was the last question you asked? Oh god, something work-related, I'm sure. I ask a thousand questions in any shift.

40. Favourite time of the year? Autumn and Winter! Dead heat between the two - HA! See what I did there?

41. Do you have any tattoos? Nope and I probably never will. A few choice phrases come to mind if I ever did, though.

42. Are you sarcastic? Sometimes but not terribly - it's certainly not a go-to mindset or a reflex for me like so many others.

43. Have you ever seen The Butterfly Effect? Yeppers.

44. Ever walked into a wall? Er, it's been an extremely long time since I've done that and the only for-sure instance that comes to mind is walking in a pole when going to school in Hawaii. A big, blue pole.

45. Favourite colour? Blue, ironically. Or grey.

46. Have you ever slapped someone? I'm sure I have, but I can't remember. I kind of doubt I've ever slapped someone seriously, though.

47. Is your hair curly? Nope.

48. What was the last CD you bought? The last CD I bought was for someone else - three of Hammock's albums from Amazon for a friend's birthday. The last CD I bought for myself was... there was Raindancer by Erutan for a physical CD and then a digital album purchase for Final Symphony from iTunes.

49. Do looks matter? Of course they do - they do to everyone in some degree. Some place too much emphasis or all the emphasis on looks and some place varying degrees of 'very little' but in the end, we're all attracted to physical attributes no matter what else we may say. I can say I find a lot of things pleasing to the eye and beauty is not so hard to find at all.

50. Could you ever forgive a cheater? I can imagine situations in which one could - hypotheticals where you either forgive your mate for cheating or forgive someone close for cheating on another, but I have a hard time imagining it ever happening to me, personally. It's not too hard to make allowances for that kind of unfaithfulness as a relationship takes two people (at least) and if you drive your significant other away in one or more ways, you may be courting sexual or romantic indiscretion. Clearly, though, you would never want to forgive someone whom cheated on you or someone else just for the sake of sex - no mental/emotional/romantic/sexual circumstances to excuse or illuminate their actions... just a desire they refuse to control.

51. What are you listening to now? The washer and dryer are working their magic. Another lull in music - last song I listened to was "Frailty" by Hammock.

52. Do you like your life right now? No, not for the most part.

53. Do you sleep with the tv on? Nope, I really don't care to do that.

54. Can you handle the truth? Always - I seek it out, but this has been a point of contention between myself and most every other people I've ever interacted with. I don't have the privilege of handling the truth, most of the time.

55. Do you have good vision? No, my eyes are terrible. So bad.

56. Do you hate or dislike more than three people? Nope, I don't really hate or dislike people on personal levels and why people choose to devote so much time, attention and effort to such negativity is beyond me. Circumstantial and incidental hatred and anger are great though = some people are such fucking asshats.

57. How often do you talk on the phone? Very, very, very rarely. I own a phone and I like my phone, but my phone barely sees good or consistent use. Such a pity.

58. The last person you held hands with? Anastasia, for sure.

59. What are you wearing? Clothes. Jeans, boxers, a polo shirt. Socks. No shoes, yet. They're coming.

60. What is your favourite animal? Cats! Of course I thought of a pet, first.

61. Where was your favourite picture taken? No such thing exists. I'm not photogenic and I appreciate this fact and I'm also not one for keeping memories in that fashion - mostly because I have never had a reason to and never had an external source introduce it to me.

62. Can you hula hoop? Ja.

63. Do you have a job? But of course. It can be so terrible, but I do.

64. What was the most recent thing you bought? Hmmm. Two bottles of .9 L Vitamin Water for myself.

65. Have you ever crawled through a window? I'm sure most of us have at some point, I sure have. But only for the sake of goodness and entry, of course.

They merely use them to feel more complete.


Anastasia,

    I listen to music because it resonates with me in a way that few things can, do or have - this is especially true of instrumentals and types of music like Hammock. I long for you for the same reasons - a deep and wondrous resonance that I've felt few times in my life and ever experienced personally, until you. There is such a wellspring here, such potential and beauty, that I find it hard to believe that I have already lost you. I find it hard, but I do believe it and it hurts... it reminds me of my place in life and love and though that breaks me in the worst of ways it also takes me back to a time when that was all I ever knew and, because of that, I found grace. Eventually I found peace, too, in accepting loss and my failings and, always, remembering my grace.
    It was beautiful. I was beautiful and though no one else could see, no one else knew or cared, I did and that was enough. I can be that again, thanks to you and that means a lot in this tiny, solitary world.
    It's the little things, you see, that come out of the horrible, harrowing experiences that can make pain, the understanding and enduring of it, beautiful. That was my life, every day - pain. Feeling lost, being alone, never knowing love, wanting attention, being teased, harassed, hit, ostracized and always, always excluded and neglected. Never sought, never wanted - the reality was awful and constant to the point that happiness was more a concept, an idea, than a state of being - the equivalent of a passing breeze or thought before once again drowning in sorrow and worthlessness. In having no value to absolutely anyone I came to a crossroad - to find it in myself, for myself... or kill myself. Daring to believe that I might be good and be worth something was not my first choice - I rather seriously courted suicide, pondering the best way to remove myself, but it never panned out. Whenever I got close I got even more heartbroken than I already was and I chocked and considered the strangest things. Who would find me? Who would have to clean up the awful mess I was about to leave behind? Could they ever forget? I'm not a cruel person - never was - so I found that aside from being unable to do that to myself that I was simply unwilling to do that to someone else. Years later I would find some vindication in the tragedies of others' loved ones - the son/brother that killed himself or the father/husband too, each having left themselves in bloody pieces for family to find. Sometimes, at my coldest, that is precisely what I wanted to do - to inflict upon myself and others in one horrifying gesture and know that they would reap the aftermath of a lonely, miserable life. But the notion always passed - it always has and will - as at my center I decided, long ago, 'not yet'. I may never be happy, I may never find love, I may always feel worthless and have this horrible, aching want but after all of that I do have something that few do - sanity, peace and hope. I could have, so easily, taken all of the awful things and gone in the opposite direction and embraced every terrible thought and idea instead of 'tomorrow' - the tomorrow that will never come. Grace. That is what I found before and what I have found once again-
    -so thank you. Thank you for what you have given me and for reminding me, after so long, that to lose something is not to lose everything and that in enduring I have the chance, the choice, to feel and to remember...
    I'm still here.
    I'm still here.
    I'm still here.

    And I always will be.





    And that's not nothing.

                                                                                                                    Thank you. I love you. I miss you.

Because people don't make love to Angels...
They merely use them to feel more complete.


Well that was a pretty crazy last few episodes from Aang's dick move with the rendezvous map, his mishap with firebending (and Katara's subsequent discovery of hand-dandy healing), the introduction of airships (is it more or are Fire Nation tanks ludicrously capable?), Aang and Katara's forays into mastering waterbending and THE ANNIHILATION OF AN ENTIRE FLEET - things got pretty busy there at the end.

I'm surprised that Aang did what he did when it came to handing over the rendezvous map to Bato/Katara/Sokka, then I remind myself that he is astonishingly young and still vulnerable and finding his own footing in the world and I am less surprised. Still though, what a dick move - the fight at the abbey was pretty cool though... too bad about all that perfume though.
Aang's run in with Jeong Jeong was pretty fascinating - I wonder if everyone else feels the same way as he does about firebending or if he is just particularly tortured (I can't imagine Zuko & the others feeling the same way). With Katara's healing ability being introduced that makes... two sub-types of bending, right? Lightning-bending (or directing) and healing so far - I find the additions to be pretty fascinating and it really opens up the world of bending a bit more - I wonder what other types will be introduced and what they will mean for the series and world as a whole.
I'm really glad that Katara is such a hardass and fought against Pakku's asshattery to train her waterbending (not to mention becoming Aang's teacher in turn) - it made me realize that there were not near enough strong women in the story and I think that the earthbender that joins the group is going to be a girl :D ANOTHER HAWT ONE!
Speaking of hotness, Zuko's sister is pretty cute - she looked crazy though - Zuko's little asides about her were pretty saddening with her being the favored one in the family and Zuko being... poor guy. He can't catch a break except for that moment with Iroh about him thinking of Zuko as a son <3 THERE IS GOOD IN THE WORLD.

Zhao was a nutbag - I can't believe he got crazy enough to want to do something as reckless as killing the moon/moon spirit when it would so clearly have such dire consequences on the entire world - I wonder if La killed him outright at the end or took him to the Spirit World to suffer in weirdness for the rest of time. I also can't believe just how many people Aang and La killed, so horribly - I know they're Fire Nation thugs that were asking for it, but man... dozens or hundreds of ships getting wiped out like that really pumps out Aang's KD/r in a big, bad way.

The mechanics of the Spirit World are weird.

All in all I have to say I really loved the first season and that I am looking forward to getting through the second and, hopefully, meeting the earthbender of the group soon. I hope for better music, too!

PS - Poor Sokka, his latest love interest getting snuffed out to revive the dead moon spirit.

So we find out that the Avatar's quest has a time limit (ouch) but given that this is three seasons of content it's clearly not going to come to a head by the end of this season... so I guess that's the overall arc whereas, more immediately, the sub-arcs seem to focus on Aang's pursuit of bending teachers & Zuko's pursuit of the Avatar. I imagine that this trend is going to continue until he's mastered (or learned enough about) each element and is ready or until Sozin's Comet arrives.

Aang is getting spiritual, Katara has her own brand of crazy, Zuko is not the worst person ever, Sokka is still trying his best, Iroh works best naked and Momo and Appa only get cuter and cuter - that's the gist of things so far ;P
Katara's craziness with the waterbending form scroll was pretty funny, if typical - it helps to be reminded every now and again that these ARE kids and that they still have a lot of growing and learning to do. I found the scroll itself and the premise of forms to be fascinating - I wonder if forms are absolutely necessary, a form of focusing/channeling or entirely arbitrary... it seems like a mix, so far.
That's something else - the show is still finding its footing at this point and it shows in absolutely every way - bringing in the various characters, forming their personalities and perspectives and showing just what bending is, how it (does or can) works, fighting styles, lore... AND MUSIC! Oh, my poor heart, the music is just so... cheesy but I get it. With the whole "finding its footing" thing this first season of Avatar reminds me of the first season of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer :lmao: Oh my gosh, so much cheese, so much bad music and the struggle for style... it was great, I loved it then and I still do now and I appreciate the raw form of Avatar so far (but I do hope the music improves). I can't wait to see how all of this, story-wise and in terms of production, ends up in seasons two and three.
I feel like I should be more specific i all of this, perhaps going over each episode in its own paragraph and such, but I am blowing through it so fast and the episodes are so short that it seems like that would get me stuck with endless snippets. What I can say is that I am loving the deepening story and characters and I can understand, even more so now, why this show was and is so popular and is so loved.

On a more personal note, all of this also makes me reflect on my own creativity and stories that I have long harbored but have hardly developed outside of my own head - particularly with the mechanics of bending. What is is, where it comes from, how it works (the scroll of forms picked my brain) and the like... it makes me think back to my own story and its magic and all the facets it has developed over the years.

1. First thing you wash in the shower? My hair/face! I think it is always my hair first.

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now? Okay - I'm alive - and making progress in accepting my lonely situation... so yeah, okay.

6. What's the closest thing to you that's red? Oooh, I seem to be equidistant from a mug with a red background and a girl in red underwear and several mini-speakers with red LEDs.

7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having? I've been having trouble remembering dreams as of late - I only have vague flashes and the like now. I've mostly dreamed of two ladies of late so I'd have to say their faces stick out the most.

8. Did you meet anybody new today? I nearly always do, working the job I work - and the change in seasons is bringing in the usual load-of-tourists and transients but this is mostly the non-committal, deeply informal and rather ambivalent sort of 'meeting' between people (customer and cashier). But I actually officially met and exchanged names with two customers in the last week I believe.

9. What are you craving right now? A person. If that's not what you meant, then.... nothing really. I already ate and am about to have some coffee. But pastries are always nice.

10. Do you floss? Not one-thousandth as much as I should but yes, occasionally.

11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage? Spring rolls/egg rolls. This Chinese/American restaurant always puts a bunch of cabbage leaves around them when you order out from them. So lovely.

12. Are you emotional? Extremely, but I am also quite logical, controlled and rational but I've never let one preclude the other. Whether or not I let my emotion show or let it show to what degree depends on the situation and appropriateness - whether or not I give in to tears depends on whom I am around, if anyone at all, and what I may say or express and to what degree depends on whom I am expressing myself to, why I am and what our actual relationship is. Temperance! 

13. Have you ever counted to 1,000? One-at-a-time? I doubt it though maybe when I was a kid... I did some odd things, sometimes.

14. Do you bite into your ice-cream or just lick it? I eat it - so both, but mostly biting.

15. Do you like your hair? Yeah, depending on the length. If it is too short or too long, I'm at odds.

16. Do you like yourself? Well enough, yes - I recognize my strengths, weaknesses, oddities, deep faults and difficulties and I have to say that, for the most part, I am proud and content. The only time I do not like myself is when I regard myself from the perspective of others - I cannot, for the life of me, make friends or find a girlfriend. Short answer - yes.

17. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush? No, hell no.

18. What are you listening to right now? My dad talking on the phone in the living room and my CPU fan. I had music on earlier - Answers from Final Fantasy XIV.

19. Are your parents strict? Yes, mostly.

20. Would you go sky diving? Most definitely.

21. Do you like cottage cheese? I do not dislike it and am definitely not against it, but I generally do not seek it, as enjoyable as it is. It has a time and place that I rarely find myself in.

22. Have you ever met a celebrity? Nope.

23. Do you rent movies often? Not really, no, but I do rent from time-to-time and almost exclusively off of Amazon - I rent when I am mostly-sure that I will not like or love the movie I am perusing. Otherwise I just buy it.

24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in? There must be. Not really... maybe that ribbon on the birthday present counts? When you really think about what 'sparkly' is, you realize just how many things are most definitely not.

25. How many countries have you visited? None other than the States, sadly. I may have been conceived overseas, though! I think that would have been Germany...

26. Have you ever made a prank call? Nope, I was a well-behaved kid and I am a better-behaved adult.

27. Have you ever been on a train? Sadly, no. Maybe my parents could correct me though - they have all kinds of knowledge and memories of the past I couldn't begin to imagine.

28. Brown or white eggs? Is there a taste-difference? I'm no egg connoisseur but I've mostly been exposed to white eggs.

29. Do you have a cell phone? Yep. An older slide-phone, but it serves me well especially since I barely ever call or text.

30. Do you use chapstick? Yes, I live in a desert.

31. Do you own a gun? No, I don't really want to either... unless it is a p90. I'd own that gun with pleasure.

32. Can you use chop sticks? Not well, but I've also barely been exposed to them.

33. Who are you going to be with tonight? Who? I'm going to take a wild guess and say "absolutely no one" unfortunately - unless Anastasia gets her head out of her ass... which is very unlikely. Very. Very-very. Even then... nope, no one.

34. Are you too forgiving? I wouldn't say so - I'm pretty rational but also realistic and appreciative and recognizing of circumstances and what constitutes a reason over an excuse. I hold people responsible for things when and if it matters.

35. Ever been in love? Oh, yes, most definitely.

36. What is your best friend doing tomorrow? Locally I have no best friends - I've only got two friends and they're both remote, now, and strictly online - I'd imagine John is either going to work or game his ass off and Derrick is definitely going to work and maybe game a little bit of his ass of. Maybe.

37. Ever had cream puffs? I think I have. Yes, wait, yes I have. Lovely things. Things with cream are delightful.

38. Last time you cried? Last night before work and maaaaybe at work. Maybe. No, maybe not, as much as I have been feeling lately and while I did cry at work yesterday, last night was much too busy. If I did I don't remember. If we're talking about degrees of crying, I last cried 'hard' a few days ago and before that... hmm, January 03 and before that a year and change ago.

39. What was the last question you asked? Oh god, something work-related, I'm sure. I ask a thousand questions in any shift.

40. Favourite time of the year? Autumn and Winter! Dead heat between the two - HA! See what I did there?

41. Do you have any tattoos? Nope and I probably never will. A few choice phrases come to mind if I ever did, though.

42. Are you sarcastic? Sometimes but not terribly - it's certainly not a go-to mindset or a reflex for me like so many others.

43. Have you ever seen The Butterfly Effect? Yeppers.

44. Ever walked into a wall? Er, it's been an extremely long time since I've done that and the only for-sure instance that comes to mind is walking in a pole when going to school in Hawaii. A big, blue pole.

45. Favourite colour? Blue, ironically. Or grey.

46. Have you ever slapped someone? I'm sure I have, but I can't remember. I kind of doubt I've ever slapped someone seriously, though.

47. Is your hair curly? Nope.

48. What was the last CD you bought? The last CD I bought was for someone else - three of Hammock's albums from Amazon for a friend's birthday. The last CD I bought for myself was... there was Raindancer by Erutan for a physical CD and then a digital album purchase for Final Symphony from iTunes.

49. Do looks matter? Of course they do - they do to everyone in some degree. Some place too much emphasis or all the emphasis on looks and some place varying degrees of 'very little' but in the end, we're all attracted to physical attributes no matter what else we may say. I can say I find a lot of things pleasing to the eye and beauty is not so hard to find at all.

50. Could you ever forgive a cheater? I can imagine situations in which one could - hypotheticals where you either forgive your mate for cheating or forgive someone close for cheating on another, but I have a hard time imagining it ever happening to me, personally. It's not too hard to make allowances for that kind of unfaithfulness as a relationship takes two people (at least) and if you drive your significant other away in one or more ways, you may be courting sexual or romantic indiscretion. Clearly, though, you would never want to forgive someone whom cheated on you or someone else just for the sake of sex - no mental/emotional/romantic/sexual circumstances to excuse or illuminate their actions... just a desire they refuse to control.

51. What are you listening to now? The washer and dryer are working their magic. Another lull in music - last song I listened to was "Frailty" by Hammock.

52. Do you like your life right now? No, not for the most part.

53. Do you sleep with the tv on? Nope, I really don't care to do that.

54. Can you handle the truth? Always - I seek it out, but this has been a point of contention between myself and most every other people I've ever interacted with. I don't have the privilege of handling the truth, most of the time.

55. Do you have good vision? No, my eyes are terrible. So bad.

56. Do you hate or dislike more than three people? Nope, I don't really hate or dislike people on personal levels and why people choose to devote so much time, attention and effort to such negativity is beyond me. Circumstantial and incidental hatred and anger are great though = some people are such fucking asshats.

57. How often do you talk on the phone? Very, very, very rarely. I own a phone and I like my phone, but my phone barely sees good or consistent use. Such a pity.

58. The last person you held hands with? Anastasia, for sure.

59. What are you wearing? Clothes. Jeans, boxers, a polo shirt. Socks. No shoes, yet. They're coming.

60. What is your favourite animal? Cats! Of course I thought of a pet, first.

61. Where was your favourite picture taken? No such thing exists. I'm not photogenic and I appreciate this fact and I'm also not one for keeping memories in that fashion - mostly because I have never had a reason to and never had an external source introduce it to me.

62. Can you hula hoop? Ja.

63. Do you have a job? But of course. It can be so terrible, but I do.

64. What was the most recent thing you bought? Hmmm. Two bottles of .9 L Vitamin Water for myself.

65. Have you ever crawled through a window? I'm sure most of us have at some point, I sure have. But only for the sake of goodness and entry, of course.

Do you remember love
The heartbreak of love?
Nothing now but music of the night
I am forever in love

A lover with a fault
A lover with a fault

Allow it and you will have it
Allow it and love will be

Do you remember the time
When you were satisfied?
Do you remember the time
When you were laughing?

The world is wonderful
if you believe in it
Turn your face towards life
and constant happiness in our midst

What happened to those days?
What happened to those nights?
Do you remember the time
When you were sorrowful?

Do you remember the time
Forever crying tears?
Was it me or you at fault?

Feeling used and lost
Why the fighting and
crying of tears?

There is beauty in the world
If you seek it out
There is joyous wonder in the world
Let's seek it out
