.. meaning to sing you the song ..

I had the opportunity to visit the Shiny Shabby event yesterday and I nearly bought one of everything!  I had fun meandering around the streets of the event, poking my head in to see what the creators have designed specifically for the February round. Shiny Shabby is described as “a flea market for new and weathered things”.  Those that love vintage and antique items in Second Life will be over the moon this round. So many things to choose from. But if you enjoy a more modern style, don’t despair.. there is plenty for you too!  The event opens in grand style at noon SLT today (February 20th). Take the time to visit this cool new event.

We know so perfectly how to give birth to the monsters inside us,
but for reasons I will never figure out,
we have not the slightest clue of what to do with all the love.

You know you’re in trouble
When the spotlight is on you
When nothing can be trusted
And you don’t know what to do

Hold on to yourself
You’re just someone like me
And you’re slowly becoming
What you’re pretending to be

I’ve been meaning to sing you the song
I’ve been meaning to sing you the song for so long

And to all you good people
That were lost along the way
I have need for your smiles
And friendship today

All those magical nights
When our aim seemed so true
You of all must know the reason
I still feel like I do

I’ve been meaning to sing you the song
I’ve been meaning to sing you the song for so long

I must take to the stage
I need nerves of steel
No matter how weak
And how weightless I feel

I just wanted to come across strong
Who, really, who was I trying to fool
