It took me _several_ hours to get those damn things uploaded..

with our network going mad halfway through .. but just before i left i freaked out and halved the one image in size before attempting to upload it again.

But anyway. feel free to ridicule or whatever.. i need to get some sleep. sleep would be real nice right now.

sleep while listening to ryan adams on repeat... (ok .. so i have a wack of duncan sheik in there too)


Ryan Adams
Title: Cry On Demand
Album: Demolition

So, it's how the story goes.
And we come to the scene where I'm holding you close.
She moves, moves like a thin dulling blade
Cuts, all the words that I said.
The only difference is,
The only difference is,
The truth --
The truth is I miss you.

Cry on demand.
How'd you learn to?
Cry on demand.
Teach me if you want to.
Though you don't have to.
I just close my eyes and think of you.

Real. Real like a plastic bouquet.
That thrives on the smoke from an old fireplace.
And dies every night with her face on the news.
Nobody cries, they just smoke and stare at their shoes.
The only difference is,
The only difference is,
Nobody can cry --
It's hard to do.
For most folks, without a reason why.

Cry on demand.
How'd you learn to?
Cry on demand.
Why would you want to?
Just close your eyes and think of me.
I take back everything I said.
She can't hurt me, and I can't hurt you.
It's like were already dead.
Cry on demand.
Why would you want to?
Cry on demand.
Teach me if you want to.
Though you don't have to.
I just close my eyes and think of you.

Artist : Duncan Sheik
Song : Reasons For Living

Everyone's looking
Everyone hides
Everyone's telling... everyone lies
They're changing the subject
They're turning away
Away from the heart of it all

You say you are happy,
That you think this is fun
But it's only a firefly to the light of the sun
You say this is living
You feel so alive,
Well, you know, everything dies

(chorus)
Even my wonder
Even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm
It's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of us

Welcome to another day
It don't seem that different 'cuz nothing has changed
Try to remember
Try to remember
When weren't just running in place

Reasons for living
Never come cheap
And even your best ones can put me to sleep
What I am saying,
Trying to say
Is that there must be a better way

(repeat chorus)

It's already in you
It's already there
You may disagree, but I don't really care

Did you ever find out,
You ever find out
What's at the heart of us?
Did you ever find out,
You ever find out
What's at the heart?

Tell me all your wildest dreams
I don't really care you don't know what they mean
Raiding the closets
The skeleton keys
You know, it's easier than you think

(repeat chorus)

Your reasons for living
Are all very fine
They're leaving me cold, though they're not really mine
Did you ever find out,
Did you ever find out
What's at the heart of us?

I don't know
I don't know, oh, oh

Don't know so much about being "family", but cute yes, although since his first album he's gotten a bit pudgy, cute pudgy mind you. ;-)
