The Cure is Love

I want a love that can be described with Cure lyrics… is that too much to ask??? Alternately (or preferably) I would also just take Robert Smith for my own…. dreamy!! sigh, I miss the eighties…

Lovesong ~ Written by Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Simon Gallup, Boris Williams, Roger O’donnell, Robert James Smith, Porl Thompson

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

(Fly me to the moon)

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

 

Just Like Heaven ~ Written by Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Simon Gallup, Boris Williams, Robert James Smith, Porl Thompson

“Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream” she said

“The one that makes me laugh” she said
And threw her arms around my neck

“Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I’ll run away with you
I’ll run away with you”

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had To make her glow
“Why are you so far away?” she said
“Why won’t you ever know that I’m in love with you
That I’m in love with you”

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You’re just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone, alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven  

Why Can’t I Be You ~ Written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Boris Williams 

You’re so gorgeous I’ll do anything
I’ll kiss you from your feet to where your head begins
You’re so perfect you’re so right as rain
You make me Make me, make me, make me hungry again

Everything you do is irresistible
Everything you do is simply kissable
Why can’t I be you?

I’ll run around in circles ’til I run out of breath
I’ll eat you all up
Or I’ll just hug you to death
You’re so wonderful
Too good to be true
You make me, make me, make me,
make me hungry for you

Everything you do is simply delicate
Everything you do is quite angelic
Why can’t I be you?
Why can’t I be you?

You turn my head when you turn around
You turn the whole world upside down
I’m smitten I’m bitten I’m hooked I’m cooked
I’m stuck like glue
You make me, make me, make me, make me hungry for you

Everything you do is simply dreamy
Everything you do is quite delicious
So why can’t I be you?

 

Mint Car ~ Written by Jason Toop Cooper, Simon Gallup, Roger O’donnell, Robert James Smith, Perry Bamonte

The sun is up
I’m so happy I could scream!
And there’s nowhere else in the world I’d rather be
Than here with you
It’s perfect
It’s all I ever wanted
I almost can’t believe that it’s for real

I really don’t think it gets any better than this
Vanilla smile
And a gorgeous strawberry kiss!
Birds sing we swing
Clouds drift by and everything is like a dream
It’s everything I wished

Never guessed it got this good
Wondered if it ever would
Really didn’t think it could
Do it again?
I know we should!!!

The sun is up
I’m so fizzy I could burst!
You wet through and me headfirst
Into this is perfect
It’s all I ever wanted
Ow! it feels so big it almost hurts!

Never guessed it got this good
Wondered if it ever would
Really didn’t think it could
Do it some more?
I know we should!!!

Say it will always be like this
The two of us together
It will always be like this
Forever and ever and ever…

Never guessed it got this good
Wondered if it ever would
Really didn’t think it could
Do it all the time?
I know that we should!!!

Pictures of You ~ Written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O’donnell, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst, Boris Williams

There was nothing in the world
That I ever wanted more
Than to feel you deep in my heart
There was nothing in the world 
That I ever wanted more
Than to never feel the breaking apart
All my pictures of you

In Between Days ~ Written by Robert James Smith

Yesterday I got so scared,
I shivered like a child,
Yesterday away from you,
It froze me deep inside

High ~ Written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Porl Thompson, Boris Williams, Perry Bamonte

and when i see you
take the same sweet steps
you used to take
i say i’ll keep holding you
my arms so tight
i’ll never let you slip away

 

 

all the small gods

One of my favorite book quotes and something I wholeheartedly believe. From “Small Gods” by the eternally fantastic Sir Terry Pratchett:

There are billions of gods in the world. They swarm as thick as herring roe. Most of them are too small to see and never get worshiped, at least by anything bigger than a bacteria, who never say their prayers and don’t demand much in the way of miracles.
They are the small gods — the spirits of places where two ant trails cross, the gods of micro-climates down between the grass roots. And most of them stay that way.
Because what they lack is belief.
A handful though, go on to greater things. Anything may trigger it. A shepherd, seeking a lost lamb, finds it among the briars and takes a minute or two to build a small cairn of stones in general thanks to whatever spirit might be around the place. Or a peculiarly shaped tree becomes associated with a cure for disease. Or someone carves a spiral on an isolated stone. Because what gods need is belief, and what humans want is gods.
Often it stops there, But sometimes it goes further. More rocks are added, more stones are raised, a temple is built on the site where the tree once stood. The god grows in strength, the belief of its worshipers raising it upwards like a thousand tons of rocket fuel. For a very few, the sky’s the limit.
And, sometimes, not even that.

By this description I am a small god… I only have a few self-created worshipers! (my children) lol

Book Review of Wool, Shift, & Dust by Hugh Howey

These books were originally published in multiple parts each, what I am reviewing here are the omnibus editions.  All three books are telling essentially the same story with Shift picking up the tale I’d say about the middle of the Wool timeline and then Dust taking the story to it’s conclusion.  Even though the story and timelines cross-over they are told from different perspectives.  Howey’s writing style is easy to read and follow — I’ve not read any of his other books (though I now plan too) but at least in these there are no impossible made-up words or ideas to contend with.  Not suggesting those are always bad things but they do sometimes make a book harder to enjoy.  In my initial review of ‘Wool’ I had said that I thought Mr. Howey had a chip on his shoulder with his Help Desk people since he essentially criminalized the ‘IT’ department.  I’m so glad that I read the other two books so I could get the rest of the story!  Since I don’t want to give everything away I will say that the basic premise throughout the story of a dystopian society created by a corrupt government via the catalyst of an eminent biological attack is completely (and sadly) believable.   Juliette, whom I will call our protagonist (though not the only one) is a real and likable woman – a person you will be rooting for until the bitter end.  I guess the main antagonist is Thurman, but he is really just the linchpin of a much bigger evil.  I kind of wanted a 4th book to continue the story but I guess I will have to be happy with the ending as it is – and it does have a happy ending even though there are losses along the way.  (I will have to  be satisfied imagining for myself what happened next… like who married whom, who got be the next mayor, if they found others… etc.).  I absolutely recommend these books!  It’s an enjoyable way to spend a weekend or two!
