Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

qglasWinter Song

This is my winter song to you
The storm is coming soon
it rolls in from the sea

My voice a beacon in the night
My words will be your light
to carry you to me

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

They say that things just cannot grow
beneath the winter snow
or so I have been told

They say we’re buried far
just like a distant star
I simply cannot hold

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

This is my winter song
December never felt so wrong
cause you’re not where you belong
inside my arms

I still believe in summer days
The seasons always change
and life will find a way

I’ll be your harvester of light
and send it out tonight
so we can start again

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

This is my winter song
December never felt so wrong
cause you’re not where you belong
inside my arms

This is my winter song to you
The storm is coming soon
it rolls in from the sea

My love a beacon in the night
My words will be your light
to carry you to me

Is love alive?
Is love alive?
Is love alive?

qglasAsh Wednesday

Goodnight goodnight
Leave all your toys
Candles and cats
A few stupid boys
And a rock for good luck
Two different eyes
Leave your red birds to sing us lullabies
And some books and a baby
A ceiling of gold
The New York yankees
And a bottle of snow

ProudSAHM07{31/43} Soldier by Samantha Jade

Mmm… Mmm…

I’m laying here in the darkness
The middle of nowhere
There’s no one in sight
Caught in the madness
Don’t wanna be like this
I’m losing my mind

Wanna see inside your head
What’s going on in there?
Tell me where you are
So I can stop and take a breath
Cause nothing’s making sense
I don’t want this to end
Come and get me out of this mess

I want you to stay (oh), stay (oh)
Stay with me a little longer
Why don’t you stay (oh), stay (oh)
Don’t you wanna be my Soldier?
Now, would you fight for me?
D-d-d-die for me?
Would wanna be with me forever
Why don’t you stay (oh), stay (oh)
Don’t you wanna be my Soldier?
(Whoa-oh)

You brought me out of my shell
Put me under your spell
Now I’m walking a straight line
To you
I’ll never surrender
You’re my pain and pleasure all together

Wanna see inside your head
What’s going on in there?
Tell me where you are
So I can stop and take a breath
Cause nothing’s making sense
I don’t want this to end
Come and get me out of this mess

I want you to stay (oh), stay (oh)
Stay with me a little longer
Why don’t you stay (oh), stay (oh)
Don’t you wanna be my Soldier?
Now, would you fight for me?
D-d-d-die for me?
Would wanna be with me forever
Why don’t you stay (oh), stay (oh)
Don’t you wanna be my Soldier?
(Whoa-oh)

If only it was us against the world
(Tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me, would you stand for all the worth?
(Worth, worth)
Your silence is a gun, gun, gun, gun
Aiming at the one, one, one, one
Who’s still the same
My love won’t change
(Love won’t change…)

(Stay…)
Stay (oh), stay (oh)
Stay with me a little longer
Why don’t you stay (oh), stay (oh)
(Stay…)
Don’t you wanna be my Soldier?
Now, would you fight for me?
D-d-d-die for me?
Would wanna be with me forever
Why don’t you stay (oh), stay (oh)
(Stay, stay, yeah…)
Don’t you wanna be my Soldier?
(Whoa-oh)

(Oh, oh, oh) (Oh, oh, oh) Yeah
(Oh, oh, oh) Be my Soldier, soldier
(Oh, oh, oh-oh)
(Oh, oh, oh) But, would you die for me?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Die for me?

ProudSAHM07{30/43} Alive by Hillsong Young & Free

I was lost with a broken heart
You picked me up, now I’m set apart
From the ash I am born again
Forever safe in the Saviour’s hands
You are more than my words could say
I’ll follow You Lord for all my days
I’ll fix my eyes, follow in Your ways
Forever free in unending grace

‘Cause You are, You are, You are my freedom
We lift You higher, lift You higher
Your love, Your love, Your love never ending
Oh oh oh

You are alive in us
Nothing can take Your place
You are all we need
Your love has set us free

In the midst of the darkest night
Let Your love be the shining light
Breaking chains that were holding me
You sent Your Son down and set me free
Everything of this world will fade
I’m pressing on till I see Your face
I will live that Your will be done
I won’t stop till Your Kingdom come

‘Cause You are, You are, You are my freedom
We lift You higher, lift You higher
Your love, Your love, Your love never ending
Oh oh oh

You are alive in us
Nothing can take Your place

qglasI Choose You

Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

I’ll unfold before you
Would have strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

We are not perfect
We’ll learn from our mistakes
And as long as it takes
I will prove my love to you

I am not scared of the elements
I am under-prepared, but I am willing
And even better
I get to be the other half of you

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you

qglasMad Tom Of Bedlam

To see Mad Tom of Bedlam
Ten thousand miles I’ve travelled
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes
To save her shoes from gravel

It’s well that we sing bonney boys
Bonney mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonney
For they all go bare, and they live in the air
And they want no drink nor money

I went down to Satan’s kitchen
For to break my fast one morning
And there I got souls popping hot
All on the spits a-turnin’

It’s well that we sing bonney boys
Bonney mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonney
For they all go bare, and they live in the air
And they want no drink nor money

They’ spirits got hot as lightning
Did on that journey guide me
The sun did shake and the pale moon quake
Wherever they did spy me

Yet it’s well that we sing bonney boys
Bonney mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonney
For they all go bare, and they live in the air
And they want no drink nor money

My staff has murdered giants
And my pack a long knife carries
For to slice mince pies from children’s thighs
From which to feed the faeries

It’s well that we sing bonney boys
Bonney mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonney
For they all go bare, and they live in the air
And they want no drink nor money

Tonight I’ll go a murderin’
The man in the moon to a powder
His dog I’ll shake and his staff I’ll break
And I’ll howl a wee bit louder

It’s well that we sing bonney boys
Bonney mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonney
For they all go bare, and they live in the air
And they want no drink nor money

To see Mad Tom of Bedlam
Ten thousand miles I’ve travelled
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes
To save her shoes from gravel

It’s well that we sing bonney boys
Bonney mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonney
For they all go bare, and they live in the air
And they want no drink nor money

qglasHummingbirds

Some of my favorite colors in the world
Beat against my eyelids
With the blues of green hummingbirds
Some of my favorite colors in the world
Beat against my eyelids
With the reds of pink hummingbirds

Blue moon
So white
So scared
To come out tonight

It’s too dark
For him
He’s just a boy
With a man’s grin

Crane and the swan, wingspan across
Lake’s silver light, the ivory night

Some of my favorite colors in the world
Beat against my eyelids
With the blues of green hummingbirds
Some of my favorite colors in the world
Beat against my eyelids
With the reds of pink hummingbirds

Godiva girl
Swimming in chocolate
Winged foil heart cardinals
Oh but February stopped it

Red bird
Scared white
She’s just a girl
With a woman’s smile

ProudSAHM07[29/43] Long Way Home by Steven Curtis Chapman

Verse 1
I set out on a great adventure
The day my Father started leading me home
He said theres gonna be some mountains to climb
and some valleys we’re gonna go through

But I have no way of knowing
just how hard this journey could be
Cause the valleys are deeper and the mountains are steeper
Than I ever would’ve dreamed

Chorus
I know we’re gonna make it
I know we’re gonna get there soon
I know sometimes it feels like we are going the wrong way
It’s just a long way home

Verse 2
I got some rocks in my shoes, fears I wish I could lose
It makes the mountains so hard to climb
And my heart gets so heavy with the weight of the world sometimes

And theres a bag of regrets
My should’ve beens and not yets
I keep on dragging around
And i can hardly wait for the day I get to lay it all down

Chorus
Well I know that day is coming
I know is gonna to be here soon
And I won’t turn back even if the whole world says I’m going the wrong way
‘Cause it’s just a long way home

Bridge
And when we can’t take another step
Our Father will pick us up and carry us in His arms
And even on the best days He says to remember we’re not home yet
So don’t get too comfortable
‘Cause really all we are is just pilgrims passing through

Chorus
Well I know we’re gonna make it
And I know we’re gonna get there soon
So I’ll keep on singing and believing
What all of my songs say
‘Cause our God has made a promise
And i know that everything He says is true
And I know wherever we go
He will never leave us
‘Cause He’s gonna lead us home
Every single step of the long way home

Keep on we’re gonna make it
I know we’re gonna make it
We’re just taking the long way home 9 months ago

Seven billion people on a spinning ball
And they all mean the world to You
It’s time like these that I feel so small
There must be somethin’ I can do
I played it safe in shallow water
Never had the faith to cross the border
God, I’ve gotten good at being comfortable
It’s time to leave my comfort zone

Cause You said Go! Go!
I will make you fishers of men
Go! Go!
I don’t care who or where ya been
So don’t ‘cha be afraid
To show the world your faith
Cause your never alone
Just Go! Go!
I will make you fishers of men

And if this life is like a candle
That You gave us to burn
God we wanna light up the night
Instead of livin’ with doubt
We should be livin’ it out
So let Your love be magnified!

Follow me, yeah
Follow me-e-e
This is the mission
Should you accept it
Your invitation
To get connected
Get connected

ProudSAHM07[27/43] With Every Act of Love by Jason Gray

Sitting at the stoplight
He can’t be bothered by the heart cry
Written on the cardboard in her hands
Oh, but when she looks him in the eye
His heart is broken, open wide
And he feels the hand of God reach out through him
As heaven touches earth

Oh, we bring the kingdom come
Oh, with every act of love
Jesus, help us carry You
Alive in us, Your light shines through
With every act of love
We bring the kingdom come

There’s silence at the table
He wants to talk but he’s not able
For all the shame that’s locked him deep inside
Oh, but her words are the medicine
When she says they can begin again
And forgiveness will set him free tonight
As heaven touches earth

Oh, we bring the kingdom come
Oh, with every act of love
Jesus, help us carry You
Alive in us, Your light shines through
With every act of love
We bring the kingdom come

God put a million, million doors in the world
For His love to walk through
One of those doors is you
I said, God put a million, million doors in the world
For His love to walk through
One of those doors is you

Oh, we bring the kingdom come
Oh, with every act of love
Jesus, help us carry You
Alive in us, Your light shines through
With every act of love
We bring the kingdom

Oh, we bring the kingdom come
Oh, with every act of love

Kasz29. Arctic Mokeys - Do I wana know

Have you got colour in your cheeks?
Do you ever get the fear that you can’t shift the tide
That sticks around like summat in your teeth?
Hide some aces up your sleeve?
Have you no idea that you’re in deep?
I’ve dreamt about you nearly every night this week
How many secrets can you keep?
Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow
And I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep
Spilling drinks on my settee

(Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you’d stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made
For saying things that you can’t say tomorrow day
Crawlin' back to you
Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
Cause I always do
Maybe I'm too... busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through
Crawling back to you
So have you got the guts?
Been wondering if your heart's still open
And if so I wanna know what time it shuts
Simmer down and pucker up
I'm sorry to interrupt
It's just I'm constantly on the cusp
Of trying to kiss you
I don't know if you feel the same as I do
We could be together if you wanted to
Do I wanna know?)
If this feeling flows both ways
(sad to see you go)
Was sorta hoping that you’d stay
(Baby we both know)
That the nights were mainly made
For saying things that you can’t say tomorrow day
Crawlin' back to you
Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?
Cause I always do
Maybe I'm too... busy being yours to fall for somebody new
Now I've thought it through
Crawling back to you

Too busy bein' yours to fall

Ever thought of callin' darlin'

Do you want me crawlin' back to you? 12 months ago

Kasz28. The Passenger - Wrong Direction

When I was a kid, the things I did were hidden under the grid,
Young and naive I never believed that love could be so well hid
With regret I’m willing to bet they say the older you get
It gets harder to forgive and harder to forget
It gets under your shirt like a dagger at work
The first cut is the deepest but the rest still flipping hurt
You build your heart of plastic, get cynical and sarcastic
And end up in the corner on your own.

Cos I love to feel loved but I can’t stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection,
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I’ve been running in the wrong direction oh no.
So what’s the point in getting you’re hopes up
When all you’re ever getting is choked up
When you’re coked up and can’t remember the reason why you broke up
You call her in the morning when you’re coming down and falling like an old man on the side of the road
Cause when you’re apart you don’t wanna mingle
But when you’re together you wanna be single
Ever the chase to taste the kiss of bliss that made you’re heart tingle
How much greener the grass is with those rose tinted glasses
But the butterflies they flutter by and leave us on our arses
Cos I'd love to feel love but I can't stand the rejection
Hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction
There's fish in the sea for me to make a selection
I'd jump in if it wasn't for my ear infection
Cos all I want to do is try to make a connection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction oh
Oh I'd love to feel love but I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction
I'd love to feel love but I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction ohh
It seems like I'm running in the wrong direction ohh
Seems like I'm running in the wrong direction ohh
Well it seems I've been running in the wrong direction oh no
Seems I've been running in the wrong direction 12 months ago

Kasz27. The Passenger - Let her go

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies
But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much and you dive too deep
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go
And you let her go 12 months ago

Kasz26. The Passenger - Holes

I know a man with nothing in his hands, nothing but a rolling stone
he told me about when his house burnt down, he lost everything he owned
he lay asleep for six hole weeks, they were gonna ask his mother to choose
when he woke up with nothing he said i’ll tell you something
when you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose
now i’ve got a hole in my pocket, a hole in my shirt, a whole lot of trouble, he said
but now the money’s gone, life carries on and i miss it like a hole in the head

i know a woman with kids around her ankles an a baby on her lap
she said one day her husband went to get a paper and the mother fucker never came back
mortgage to pay and four kids to raise, keeping the wolf from the door
she said the wolf’s just a puppy and the door’s double locked so why you gottaworry me for
now he left a hole in my heart a hole in a promise a hole on the side of my bed
oh but now that he’s gone well life carries on and i miss him like a hole in the head
well sometimes you can’t change and you can’t choose
and sometimes it seems you gain less than you lose
now we’ve got holes in our hearts, yeah we’ve got holes in our lives
well we’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on
well we’ve got holes in our hearts, yeah we’ve got holes in our lives
well we’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on
said we’ve got holes in our hearts, yeah we’ve got holes in our lives
well we’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on
said we’ve got holes in our hearts, we’ve got holes in our lives

said we’ve got holes in our hearts, we’ve got holes in our lives

Kasz25. Foo Fighters - Pretender

Keep you in the dark,
You know they all pretend.
Keep you in the dark,
And so it all began.

Send in your skeletons.
Sing as their bones go marching
in... Again.
The need you burried deep.
The secrets that you keep are
Ever ready.
Are you ready?
I'm finished making sense.
Done pleading ignorance.
That whole defence.
Spinning infinity, boy.
The wheel is spinning me.
It's never-ending, never-ending
Same old story.
What if I say I'm not like the others?
What if I say I'm not just another
One of your plays?
You're the pretender.
What if I say I will never surrender?
In time or so I'm told,
I'm just another soul for sale.
Oh, well.
The page is out of print.
We are not permanent,
We're temporary, temporary.
Same old story.
I'm the voice inside your head
You refuse to hear
I'm the face that you have to face
Mirrored in your stare
I'm what's left, I'm what's right
I'm the enemy
I'm the hand that will take you down
Bring you to your knees 12 months ago

Kasz24. Whitesnake - Is this love

I should have
known better
Than to let you go alone
It’s times like these
I can’t make it on my own
Wasted days, and sleepless nights
An’ I can’t wait to see you again

I find I spend my time 
Waiting on your call
How can I tell you, babe
My back's against the wall
I need you by my side
To tell me it's alright
'cause I don't think I can take anymore
Is this love that I'm feeling 
Is this the love that I've been
searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming
This must be love
'cause it's really got a hold on me
A hold on me
I can't stop the feeling 
I've been this way before
But, with you I¹ve found the key
To open any door
I can feel my love for you
Growing stronger day by day
An' I can't wait to see you again
So I can hold you in my arms
Is this love that I'm feeling 
Is this the love that I've been
searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming
This must be love
'cause it's really got a hold on me
A hold on me
Is this love that I'm feeling
Is this the love that I¹ve been
searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming 12 months ago

Kasz23. Fleetwood Mac - Go your own way

Lovin’ you…isn’t the right thing to do
How can I ever change things …That I feel

If I could … Maybe I’d give you my world
How can I … When you won’t take it from me

You can go your own way Go your own way
You can call it … Another lonely day
You can go your own way Go your own way

Tell me why … Everything turned around
Packing up … Shackin’ up’s all you wanna do

If I could … Baby I’d give you my world
Open up … Everything’s waiting for you

You can go your own way Go your own way
You can call it … Another lonely day
You can go your own way Go your own way 12 months ago


gaara_chan19. In Blues Music We Trust- Little Comets

You think that you know me
Through vacant lies
Assume that I’m only
A state of mind

My life is like a metaphor
For everything that’s gone before
You tell me it’s a failing
But I feel fine

So quote to me from books you read
On what to think and how to need
Use the same adjectives for the fortieth time

Whispers in my ears oh
Whispers in my ears oh
Diluting my tears oh
The death of all conversation
Inane but discretely
These words will defeat me
Whispers in my ears oh
The death of all conversation

Floats away
But I’ll be brave
Believe in all fortune
Favors the grave

My life’s becoming more defined
And at the age of 29
You tell me it’s elusive
But I feel loved

I see the kicks beneath her skin
Elucidates my own being
And well worn is the promise that I keep inside

Whispers in my ears oh
Whispers in my ears oh
Diluting my tears oh
The death of all conversation
No words to complete this
No words to compete with this
Whispers in my ears oh
The death of all conversation

And if it’s frequent sent
Then it’s the way it is
‘Cause what I’ve got at home
Is what I need at home

This is my dilemma
I hope it makes you tremor
‘Cause what I’ve got at home
Is what I need at home

So when it all turns black
From everything you lack
Is what you’ve got at home
What you need at home

So as I’m moving forward
I only think of these words
Is what I’ve got at home
What I need at home 13 months ago


qglasHopeless Wanderer

You heard my voice
I came out of the woods by choice
Shelter also gave their shade
But in the dark I have no name

So leave that click in my head
And I will remember the words that you said
Left a clouded mind and a heavy heart
But I was sure we could see a new start

So when your hope’s on fire
But you know your desire
Don’t hold a glass over the flame
Don’t let your heart grow cold
I will call you by name
I will share your road

But hold me fast, hold me fast
‘Cause I’m a hopeless wanderer
And hold me fast, hold me fast
‘Cause I’m a hopeless wanderer

I wrestled long with my youth
We tried so hard to live in the truth
But do not tell me all is fine
When I lose my head, I lose my spine

So leave that click in my head
And I won’t remember the words that you said
You brought me out from the cold
Now, how I long, how I long to grow old

So when your hope’s on fire
But you know your desire
Don’t hold a glass over the flame
Don’t let your heart grow cold
I will call you by name
I will share your road

But hold me fast, hold me fast
‘Cause I’m a hopeless wanderer
And hold me fast, hold me fast
‘Cause I’m a hopeless wanderer
I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I’m under
I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I’m under
The skies I’m under

Bradley AndersonTime in a Bottle - Jim Croce

(EDIT: For some reason, I can’t get Youtube to embed the video any more. I tired of messing with it. If anyone know what to do to get it working again, please let me know. If the mean time, here’s a link, anyway.)

“Time In A Bottle”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO1rMeYnOmM

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
They were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with 20 months ago


qglasYou Are The Moon

Shadows all around you as you surface from the dark
Emerging from the gentle grip of night’s unfolding arms
Darkness, darkness everywhere, do you feel all alone
The subtle grace of gravity, the heavy weight of stone

You don’t see what you possess, a beauty calm and clear
It floods the sky and blurs the darkness like a chandelier
All the light that you possess is skewed by lakes and seas
The shattered surface, so imperfect, is all that you believe

I will bring a mirror, so silver, so exact
So precise and so pristine, a perfect pane of glass
I will set the mirror up to face the blackened sky
So you can see your beauty every moment that you rise

qglasWine Red

Who shot that arrow in your throat?
Who missed the crimson apple?
It hung heavy on the tree above your head

This chaos, this calamity, this garden once was perfect
Give your immortality to me; I’ll set you up among the stars

Gloria,
We lied, we can’t go on
This is the time and this is the place to be alive

Who shot that arrow in your throat?
Who missed the crimson apple?
And there is discord in the garden tonight

The sea is wine red
This is the death of beauty
The doves have died
The lovers have lied

I cut the arrow from your neck
Stretched you beneath the tree
Among the roots and baby’s breath
I covered us with silver leaves

Gloria,
We lied, we can’t go on
This is the time and this is the place to be alive

The sea is wine red
This is the death of beauty
The doves have died
The lovers have lied

The sea is wine red
This is the death of beauty
The doves have died
The lovers have lied

The sea is wine red (Gloria, we lied)
This is the death of beauty (we lied, this is the time and place)
The doves have died (Gloria, we lied)
The lovers have lied (this is the time and place)

qglasBlack Acres

Whirlwind
Take me there
Where I will be
His lady fair
Sheets of night
Hiding us
Gusts of wind
Riding us
I’m blown away
Into his hands
I’m weak and high
Can barely stand

In the web
Of dizzy leaves
Virgins all
Elude the trees

Touch me now
Touch me
The black acres
Are claiming me
They’re claiming me

He holds me up
Like a babe
Pressing close
I can’t behave
I need to have
This little death
I’m up against
His downy chest

In the web
Of dizzy leaves
Virgins all
Elude the trees
The chill is flush
With burning flesh
It’s so refined
This little death

Touch me now
Touch me
The black acres
Are claiming me
They’re claiming me

Touch me now
Touch me
The black acres
Are claiming me
They’re claiming me
Black acres

I’m running
Away from home
Black acres
And the wind
The wind is blowin’
Black acres
And the weathervane
Its heathen song
Lulls the world
With silver tongue

Touch me now
Touch me
The black acres
Are claiming me
They’re claiming me

gaara_chan18. Jesus Christ- Brand New

Jesus Christ, that’s a pretty face
The kind you’d find on someone I could save
Well, if they don’t put me away
Then it would be a miracle.

Do you believe you’re missing out?
That everything good is happening somewhere else?
But with nobody in your bed
The night’s hard to get through.

And I will die all alone.
And when I arrive I won’t know anyone.

Oh Jesus Christ I’m alone again.
So what did you do those three days you were dead?
Cause this problem’s gonna last more than the weekend.

Well Jesus Christ I’m not scared to die
I’m a little bit scared of what comes after.
Do I get the gold chariot?
Do I float through the ceiling?
Do I divide and fall apart?
Cause my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark.
And the ship went down in sight of land.
And at the gates does Thomas ask to see my hands?

I know you’re coming in the night like a thief.
But I’ve had some time, Oh Lord, to hone my lying technique.
I know you think that I’m someone you can trust.
But I’m scared I’ll get scared and I swear I’ll try to nail you back up.

So do you think that we could work out a sign
so that I’ll know it’s you and that it’s over so I won’t even try.

I know you’re coming for people like me
But we all got wood and nails
And we turn out hate in factories.
But we all got wood and nails
And we turn out hate in factories.
But we all got wood and nails
And we sleep inside of this machine. 22 months ago


gaara_chan17. Black Flies- Ben Howard

Black flies on the windowsill
That we are
That we are
That we are to know
Winter stole summer’s thrill
And the river is cracked and cold

See the sky is no man’s land
A darkened plume to stay.
Hope here needs a humble hand
Not a fox found in your place.

And no man is an island
Oh this I know
But can’t you see
Oh maybe you were the ocean when I was just a stone

Black flies on a windowsill
That we are
That we are
That we are to hold
Comfort came against my will
Every story must grow old

still I’ll be a traveler
A gypsies reins to face
But the road is wearier
With that fool found in your place.

But no man is an island
Oh This I know
But can’t you see
Oh maybe you were the ocean when I was just a stone

But no man is an island
Oh this I know
But can’t you see
Oh maybe you were the ocean when I was just a stone
So here we are.

I don’t wanna beg your pardon
And I don’t wanna ask you why
But if I was to go my own way
Would I have to pass you by

And I don’t wanna beg your pardon
And I don’t wanna ask you why
But if I was to go my own way
Would I have to pass you by. 22 months ago
