i wish i was the moon

"chimney falls and lovers blaze
thought that i was young
now i've freezing hands and bloodless veins
as numb as i've become

i'm so tired
i wish i was the moon tonight

last night i dreamt i had forgotten my name
'cause i had sold my soul but awoke just the same

i'm so lonely
i wish i was the moon tonight"

learn love

"no one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion.  people must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

"once upon a time, when women were birds, there was a simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy.  the birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated."

dreaming of angels

"and everyday
i'm learning about you
the things that no one else sees
and the end comes too soon
like dreaming of angels
and leaving without them…"
