come sail away with me

"i'm sailing away
set an open course for the virgin sea
'cause i've got to be free
to face the life that's ahead of me
on board i'm the captain, so climb aboard
we'll search for tomorrow on every shore..."

"i'm stranded at the edge of the world
it's a world i don't know
got no where to go
feels like i'm stranded

and i'm stranded between the devil and the deep blue sea
and nobody's gonna tell me what time it is"

"i am a creature of the fey
prepare to give your soul away
my spell is passion and it is art
my song can bind a human heart
and if you chance to know my face
my hold shall be your last embrace.

i shall be your lover..."

on the ocean

"and i shall watch the ferry boats, and they'll get high,
on a bluer ocean against tomorrow's sky.
and i will never grow so old again,
and i will walk and talk,
in gardens all wet with rain..."

loves the electric power she felt with each breath
of wet, briny air"

"i walked beside the evening sea
and dreamed a dream that could not be;
the waves that plunged along the shore
said only: dreamer, dream no more!"

"i thought of you and how you love this beauty
and walking up the long beach all alone
i heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
as you and i once heard their monotone

around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
the cold and sparkling silver of the sea -
we two will pass through death and ages lengthen
before you hear that sound again with me"

i have always been inspired by georgia o'keeffe
these are just my way of sharing my favorite o'keeffe quotes...
i would say i hope you like them, but to quote ms. o'keeffe-

"i have already settled it for myself so flattery and criticism go down the same drain and i am quite free"

oh what i would give to be that free!

i am doll parts

"i am doll eyes
doll mouth, doll legs
i am doll arms, big veins, dog bait
yeah, they really want you, they really do
i want to be the girl with the most cake
i love him so much it just turns to hate
i fake it so real, i am beyond fake
and someday, you will ache like i ache"

write a story of your own

is seeking the unknown"

i come undone

"oh make me over
i'm all i wanna be
a walking study
in demonology...
...when i wake up
in my makeup
it's too early for that dress
wilted and faded somewhere in hollywood
i'm glad i came here with your pound of flesh
no second billing, cause you're a star now
oh cinderella they aren't sluts like you
beautiful garbage, beautiful dresses
can you stand up
or will you just fall down?"

i dance without sleeping

"walking on the edge of rage and understanding
between the black and the white
this child is so angry
alone here tonight
alarming desperation
leads me to believe
with all my shields and protection
it's only me i deceive

dance without sleeping
dance without fear
dance without senses no message i hear
dance till i'm numb
dance till i think i can overcome"

tell me what the matter is little man
i've got a pretty face and i wear a nice dress

why can't i keep you?"

in my dreams

"in my dreams i'm dying all the time
as i wake its kaleidoscopic mind
i never meant to hurt you
i never meant to lie
so this is goodbye
this is goodbye

tell the truth you never wanted me
tell me

in my dreams i'm jealous all the time
as i wake i'm going out of my mind
going out of my mind"
