Lyrics from Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard by Simon and Garfunkel

The mama looked down and spit on the ground
Everytime my name gets mentioned
The papa said oy if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention
Well I'm on my way
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way
I'm taking my time
But I done know where
Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona
See you, me and Julio
Down by the schoolyard

In the library garden Sunday afternoon

Won't you play a haunting theme again to me
While I eat my scones and drink my cup of tea

A long, thin, flexible twig woven together, show us 'Wicker' in your space today

Lyrics from Emily by Elton John

Emily prays to a faded hero
In a little frame clutched to her gown
Hears the voice of promise in his memory
Tonight's the night they let the ladder down
In a cage sits a gold canary
By a wicker chair and a rosewood loom
As a soul ascends abord the evening
Canary sings to an empty room

Boot Heels To Crush

Prompt from HSMSHS is Crush

Lyrics from Morning Theft by Jeff Buckley

Gifts for boot heels to crush
Promises deceived
I had to send it away
To bring us back again
Your eyes and body brighten
Silent waters, deep
Your precious daughter in the
Other room, asleep
A kiss "Goodnight" from every
Stranger that I meet
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

A Little Deer

Little Deer

I move stealthily from tree to tree
I shadow you for hours
I make like I'm a little deer
Grazing on the flowers
Everything is collapsing, dear
All moral sense has gone
It's just history repeating itself
And babe, you turn me on

Baby Its' Cold Outside

Baby It's Cold Outside

I really i cant stay
(but baby its cold outside)
I've got to go away
(but baby its cold outside)
This evening has been so very nice

Someday you're going to realise

With no particular place to go

Prompt from HSMSHS is Radiate

To give light or heat in the form of rays. Show us radiate in your space today

Lyrics from Dreaming by Blondie

I don't want to live on charity
Pleasure's real or is it fantasy?
Reel to reel is living rarity
People stop and stare at me
We just walk on by - we just keep on dreaming
Feet feet, walking a two mile
Meet meet, meet me at the turnstile
I never met him, I'll never forget him
Dream dream, even for a little while
Dream dream, filling up an idle hour
Fade away, radiate

The Sound Of Silence

People talking without speaking,
people hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never shared,
and no one dared
To stir the sound of silence

She picks the dead ones from the ground
When we come over
And she gives

Without giving anything to me
