I was a daydream
Quiet and unseen
I lived in stories
But inside I kept a mystery
I was a starling
Nobody’s darling
Flying in perfect circles
Just for company

And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be
Extraordinary

A midnight airplane
A window glowing
I know I am another sparkle in the sky
I shine on copper
Still undiscovered
But you must see me in the corner of your eye

And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be
Extraordinary

Waking up to wake up someday
I am my own parade
Stopping off at a sidewalk cafe
Wind is playing in the trees
Kicking up confetti leaves
Seems as if it’s all to say

And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be
Extraordinary
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be
Extraordinary
Extraordinary...
3rd-Mar-2008 12:13 am - I won't disagree - Cate Voegele
dianna
Ignorance is bliss
You'd always hear me say
But at times you can't deny
Those eyes looking your way

Let me begin by saying what I mean
It's a crime against the heart you know
To be somewhere in between

Well don't be shy
I've got an open heart and hand
And I just might have to
confess just where I stand

Lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins
baby every time you're close to me
Take me away to places I ain't seen
They say you've got a hold on me
And I won't disagree

Rock-a-bye my baby
Don't be blue tonight
Oh I'm on my way
And I'm gonna make it right

Cause I've got the feeling
You'll be needing love
And of all the lonely hearts
You're the one I'm thinking of

I've been told it's gonna take an iron hand
To break the mold and stand
above all of the rest

Lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins
baby every time you're close to me
Take me away to places I ain't seen
They say you've got a hold on me
And I won't disagree

I'll be thinking of that evening
When there's nothing for me to do
And I'll be wondering if by some slim chance
You've been wondering, you've been wondering too

Lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins
baby every time you're close to me
Take me away to places I ain't seen
They say you've got a hold on me
And I won't disagree
Lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins
baby every time you're close to me
Take me away to places I ain't seen
They say you've got a hold on me
And I won't disagree
dianna
I stop to catch my breath
And I stop to catch your eye
No need to second-guess
That you've been on my mind
I dream days away, but that's okay
It's like I want to hear a silent sound
And then hold it in my hand
But a rose won't blossom from a ground
Of desert sand, but I like to pretend that

One day I'll turn around,
I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah yeah
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well, now it's etched in stone
That I can't survive alone
You have the missing piece
That I need so desperately
Yes, I slip away to a day
that'll never come
It's like a splash of water to my face
When I suddenly realize
That you could never find a place
For me in your eyes, and I don't
know why I keep thinking

One day I'll turn around,
I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah yeah
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah, yeah

It's love in disguise
I'm lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes...

One day I'll turn around,
I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah yeah
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah, yeah
One day I'll turn around,
I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah yeah
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah yeah
I'm only fooling myself, oh save me now
I'm only fooling myself, yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, save me now.

dianna
I bet it makes you laugh
Watching me work so hard to reach you
You never gave a damn
About all of those things I did to please you

All that you wanted, you found somewhere else
And nothing could drag you away from yourself

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

Lucky I've been through hell
Backroads and shortcuts I know them well
Baby just stick with me
We'll make it together, just wait and see

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

The walls they close in
The air it goes out
We're left with nothing but a shadow of doubt
Nobody talks, no one is here
It's just you and me

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

Do you really know me at all?
Would you take the time to catch me if I fall?
Are you ever gonna be that real to me?
Everything to me

I bet it makes you laugh
Watching me work so hard to reach you
dianna
You were right.
And I don't want to be here if you're gonna be there.
Was that supposed to happen?
I'll hold tight.
I'll remember to smile.
Though it has been a while.
And without you does it matter?

There's no room.
No place to start.
When our souls are apart.

I want to travel through time.
See your surprise.
I'd hold you so tight.
I'm counting down the days tonight.
I just want to be a million miles away from here.
I'm counting down the days.

How've you been?
It's just the usual here.
And days are feeling like years.
And every day's without you.
Now I cry just a little too much when I think of your touch
And everything about you.

I feel cold.
I'm in the dark.
When our souls are apart.

I want to travel through time.
See your surprise.
I'd hold you so tight.
I'm counting down the days tonight.
I just want to be a million miles away from here.

I want to travel through time.
See your surprise.
I'd hold you so tight.
I'm counting down the days tonight.
I just want to be a million miles away from here.
I'm counting down the days.

I'm counting down the days.
I'm counting down the days.
I'm gonna be your surprise.
I'm gonna hold you so tight.

Yeah!

I want to travel through time.
See your surprise.
I'd hold you so tight.
I'm counting down the days tonight.
I just want to be a million miles away from here.

I want to travel through time.
See your surprise.
I'd hold you so tight.
I'm counting down the days tonight.
I just want to be a million miles away from here.
A million miles away from here.

dianna
Starting today
I'm not gonna waste another moment
Even if I had had the chance before
I would have blown it

But you took me by surprise
And you caught me just in time

Everyday
You give me reason not to walk away
I'll stop believing that the world's gone crazy
And if it is you'll save me

Starting Today
I'm not gonna worry about tomorrow
I'll wash away
All this fear that's left me feeling hollow

'Cause you make me wanna try
And you caught me just in time

Everyday
You give me reason not to walk away
I've stopped believing
I should run like crazy
'Cause if I did you'd chase me anyway

I should've told you so many times
But I shied away
Somehow you always seem to
Be there making it easy
And you give me reason to stay everyday

Ooh everyday, everyday
I've stopped believing
I should run like crazy
'Cause if I did you'd chase me anyway

You give me reason not to walk away
I've stopped believing
That the world's gone crazy
And if it is you'll save me

Starting today
I'm not gonna waste another moment
dianna
Gone, she's gone
How do you feel about it
That's what I thought
You're real torn up about it
And I wish you the best
But I could do without it
And I will, because you've worn me down
Oh, I will, because you've worn me down

Worn me down like a road
I did everything you told
Worn me down to my knees
I did everything to please
But you can't stop thinking about her
No, you can't stop thinking about her

And you're wrong, you're wrong
I'm not overreacting
Something is off
Why don't we ever believe ourselves
And I, oh, I feel that word for you
And I will, because you've worn me down
Oh, I will because you have worn me down

Worn me down like a road
I did everything you told
Worn me down to my knees
I did everything to please
But you can't stop thinking about her
No, you can't stop thinking about her

She's so pretty; she's so damn right
But I'm so tired of thinking
About her again tonight

Worn me down like a road
I did everything you told
Worn me down to my knees
I did everything to please
But you can't stop thinking about her
No, you can't stop thinking about her

Worn me down like a road
I did everything you told
Worn me down to my knees
I did everything to please
Worn me down like a road
I did everything you told to me to do
But you, you can't stop thinking about her
No, you can't stop thinking about her
No, you can't stop thinking about her
No, you can't stop thinking about her
22nd-Oct-2007 02:27 pm - U2 - The Sweetest Thing
dianna
My love, she throws me like a rubber ball
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)
But she won't catch me or break my fall.
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)
Baby's got blue skies up ahead
But in this, I'm a raincloud
You know she wants a dry kind of love.
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)

I'm losin' you, I'm losin' you
Ain't love the sweetest thing?

I wanted to run, but she made me crawl
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)
Eternal fire, she turned me to straw.
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)
I know I got black eyes
But they burn so brightly for her
I guess it's a blind kind of love.
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)

I'm losin' you, I'm losin' you
Ain't love the sweetest thing?
Ain't love the sweetest thing?

Blue-eyed boy meets a brown-eyed girl.
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)
You can sew it up, but you still see the tear.
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)
Baby's got blue skies up ahead
But in this, I'm a rain-cloud,
Ours is a stormy kind of love.
(Oh, the sweetest thing.)
3rd-Sep-2007 05:42 am - Gardenia - Mandy Moore (Wild Hope)
dianna
Well, I put so much thought into getting ready
Now I know that was the best part
It’s so easy to get caught up in what I’m regretting
Forget what I got from a wounded heart

I’m the one who likes Gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more


I’ve been seeing all my old friends in the city
Walking alone in Central Park
Doing all the things that I’ve neglected
Traded ‘em all in
To be in your arms

I’m the one who likes Gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more

Well, I hear my own voice
Sounds so silly
Keep on telling my story all around
Everything I lost seems so different
Well, this is how everybody gets found

I’m the one who likes Gardenia
Ohh, I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
And I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more
