Let it be known
Dreaming hotel
We just had a quarrel
I sent you away
I was looking for you
are you gone, gone?
Called you on the phone
But there was no answer
Will you never return?
Will you never want me?
I was looking for you
Are you gone, gone?

Down by the ocean
It was so dismal
Women all standing
With shock on their faces
Sad description
Oh, I was looking for you

Everyone was singing
Girl is washed up
On Redondo Beach
And everyone is so sad
I was looking for you
Are you gone, gone?

Hey little girl
Everyone cried
How she was the victim of suicide
I was looking for you
Are you gone, gone?

Down by the ocean
It was so dismal
Women all standing
With shock on their faces
Sad description
Oh, I was looking for you

Desk clerk told me
A girl is washed up
Was small, an angel
With apple blond hair now
I was looking for you
are you gone, gone?

Picked up my key
And I didn’t reply
I just went into my room
And I started to cry
It was morning, angel
Are you gone, gone?

Down by the ocean
It was so dismal
I was just standing
With shock on my face though
The hearse pulled away
And the girl that had died it was you
You’ll never return
Into my arms
You’ll never return
Into my arms
You’ll never return
Into my arms
'Cause you’re gone, gone

I didn't mean to derail this thread. The thread is about love. There are many kinds of love. Wonderful love and crappy love. Unconditional and conditional love. Shared love and love unrequited. Painful love and love not so painful. There is found love and lost love.

Sadly, there is no perfect love...

Angry Love

Roses are red
And violets are violet
Sugar is sweet
And I hate you

Violets are violet
They're not blue
So bring on the violence
Call an ambulance

I love you honey
Didn't mean to break your nose
You know how it goes
My little yellow rose

Not all roses are red
But all blood is
And that's a bloody nose
You know how it goes

I know you'll never love me
That's a fact I have to face
This room is bare and lonely
My god, I miss your place

Even if I only stayed once
Or twice, but dear, who's counting
I meant it when I said we're done
Because in you I'm doubting

My doubt is stronger then my faith
That I once used to have in you
Its written all over your face
There are things you need to do

Things I can't participate
Some things that I won't do
Now it's in the hands of fate
I won't hold you back - do what you need to do.

I'll take you as far as I can
I'll push you as far as you'll go
Because baby, it's who I am
By now, this you should know

I'll make you my one and only
Trust me, to take you there
I know I'll do it all baby
Because, for you I care

I'll walk you to the edge
Hold your hand, stand by your side
I'll always be your shoulder
if ever, you need to cry

And all I'll ever ask of you
is a few things, for me, okay?
Be for me, what I am for you
Love me, and meet me Halfway.

I promise I'm not that kind of girl
The one who stares at her phone
Wondering when you're going to call
Or if you are at home

I've never been that kind of girl
That wishes impossible things
To move the mountains and the ocean between
But I would, to give you everything

However I am the kind of girl
That loves with all her heart
And when I do not feel it back
It breaks this fragile heart

I've always been the kind of girl
The one who tells the truth
And thinks so very long and hard
Before saying I love you

So do this girl a favor
Before you say those words to me
Make sure I'm something you'll savor
And that you really do love me

- Carrot

Oh how wonderful
Very nice when you have it
Eager beavers

Nothing fits after a while
Dried up feelings

Answers the bell
TKOs the love
Eats it

You ask me where I go at night
Where I am, in all of my dreams
I tell you it's wherever you are dear
You're always on my mind it seems

You ask me what I think about
Where I am, inside my head
I tell you you're running in circles around me
With all the words you have said

You ask me how I feel
Where I am, emotionally
I tell you that I can't describe it
I only know that I feel it

I ask you to search your soul
And to look inside your heart
Because my dear, that's where you'll find me
Where I've been, since the very start

What's the deal with love?

It's supposed to be many splendid
Not so much
I had a many splendid once

Today it's what I do
Then it was who was I
I miss the who was eyes

I made four dollars an hour
Lived with the mater and pater
I was one cool tomater

But this girl loved me
She knew who I was
She loved the artist
Loved the heart kisses
Not the Missus...

It is what it is
It's good and comfortable
Like a warn in recliner

It's comfortable
Like a stool at the diner
Or my favorite running shoes

Comfort changes with ages
Comfort is a need
Sex and love
Are good as well

Eyes have seen the glory
Yes the glory that is love
Eyes don't always have it
Such is the human fate...

Eyes have seen the evil
Yesterday and other days
Eyes will see it tomorrow
Sorrow will follow...

Eyes have seen the good
Years of good memories
Eyes could use more
So much more...

Eyes have seen the hate
Young hate and old
Eyes damaged by hate
So are we all...

I'll dry your tears, if ever you cry
I'll fight your fears, and I'll always try
To be everything, you'll ever need and more
Baby, you're what I'm waiting for

I'll come for you, in the dead of night
I'll pick you up, when you can't stand upright
Because for me, you're all that and more
Baby, you're what I'm craving for

Take my hand, and walk this way
Watch the sunset, and hear me say
This is as good as it gets, there is no more
Baby you're what I'm living for

When the cold winds blow, and the sun hides away
The rain comes down, to wash away
Our imperfections, and the remnants of war
Baby this is love, you're what I'm fighting for

I can be a jerk
You can be a pain
You call me an ass
And I call you insane

I look for a fight
So you look for one too
We find each other
And fight till were blue

I’m broken
And you’re afraid
But I don’t care
About the mistakes you made

You might think
I don't believe in love
But I know that I do
Because I love you

An old man sits, in his kitchen alone
Drinking black coffee, that's three hours old
It doesn't cross his mind, to make a new pot
He's pre occupied, more often then not

He misses her most, first thing in the morning
Eating his toast, with strawberry jam
She would read to him, Blake's poetry
He'd listen while chewing, to her voice intently

All alone, but he hears her voice
At 87, living for him is hardly a choice
"And I saw it was filled with graves
And tombstones where flowers should be
And priests in black gowns, were walking their rounds
And binding with briars my joys and desires"

He closes his eyes and weeps,
Himself into peaceful sleep

Like a rose
With a broken stem
But it will never come again

Like the stars
In a lighted room
But never seen like it was noon

You assume
That it was me
So now were never gunna see

I could change
But you already knew
Is what I fell into

I am the brilliant fool
Eyes open, I fail to see
What you see in me

I am the useless tool
On the work bench of life
My pessimism is rife

I am the unfortunate opportunist
At all which I’ve never done
But you say I’m the one

I am perfectly imperfect
For you, according to you
Everyday, I hope it to be true

I'll welcome the rain as it pours down
On the windows of my soul
Count the drops that wash me clean
And remind me that I am whole

The wind won't frighten my fragile heart
When it comes knocking upon this door
I'll open right up, and let it waltz in
Let myself "feel" and ask for more

When the flames of the fire burn red and hot
And threaten to scorch my skin
I won't fear love or what it brings
With eyes open I'll jump right in

And when the earth, finally takes it turn
And covers me from head to toe
Don't cry for me darling, please don't cry
Because it was my time to go

You've only seen the cover
And you weren't so quick to judge
Maybe that's what drew me to you
And you didn't need a crutch

But now you look at the pages
And wonder what you've gotten yourself into
And that's okay, because I've seen in you
I know the damage you can do

You've taken a few steps back
And I don't blame you for safety first
I've stepped back once or twice before
To keep myself from getting hurt

Keep both of our eyes open
Don't walk to fast
Baby steps honey
Will ensure this lasts

Take your time
And I'll take mine

Just take your time

It's times like these
When I need you here
To steady my knees
And to dry my tears

When my world comes crashing
To the ground
And I need a breath
To just slow down

A voice of reason
To talk my back
Your rationale
Puts me back on track

Telling me
That I'm doing this right
For all the right reasons

And I thank you
Every time that you do
Because I don't know
Where I'd be without you

Eyes in a dark tomb
Filled with strangers and gloom
Eyes sealed off in my own bubble
Climbing back into mother's womb

Eyes see you from across the room
Sad and awkward like my double
Sad eyes could tear flowers to bloom
Walk beside me to our doom

No amount of love will save us
When self hate and doubt enslave us
Eyes buried in the rubble
When the dead make eyes jealous

The world is so callous
Eyes choose to be free of trouble
Free from the lies and malice
Eyes want something ridiculous
