{ Black and Gold }

I look up into the night sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black
I feel a weight of something beyond them
I don’t see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn’t real
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then the stars don’t even matter
Now I’m filled to the top with fear
But it’s all just a bunch of matter
‘Cause if you’re not really here
Then I don’t want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

{ Can I be your Wonderwall? } Shiny Shabby is OPEN!

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now

Back beat, the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don’t know how

Because maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you’re my wonderwall

{ You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink } TLC brings sexy back for the gents!

It’s the last week for The Liaison Collaborative before taking a brief hiatus for the summer.  This round “The Gentlemen’s Club” is particularly male-friendly but, with some creativity, the ladies will still find things to enjoy.  [ kunst ] in particular is one of my favorite creators when the need for a little libation hits.  He has something for whatever ails you in the liquor department.  This time, we’re hitting the cigars and brandy just like the boys.  I dare say, even us ladies can make a tie look damn good.

{ Exposed }

I’ve been keeping secrets no one gets to know,
some romantic reasons hidden far below.
In my childish little games will I ever learn to change?
So scared of letting go. But until I do
I’ll never be..exposed.

I’ve been telling stories, I know them all by heart
And they’re so beautiful I wish they could unfold. But maybe that’s a start
cause every word just feels so heavy.
What if you’re not exactly ready.
How do I let it show? But until I do
I’ll never be..exposed.

There’s a consequence of falling when you keep it to yourself.
Broken pieces I’ve collected sitting high upon my shelf.

Wanna be transparent like colors come alive.
I wanna be the girl that lets in all the light.
Like photographs and things and pieces of our dreams
So hard to let them go. But until I do
I’ll never be..exposed

And in my childish little games will I ever learn to change?
These things I’ll never know. Until I do
I’ll never be..exposed.
