The longest night

Thursday, December 22, 2011

My favourite festival of the year just so happens to be the one where I amp rewarded by Santa Claus every year. In other words, I force my father to get me something to Mark the ritual. In past I've been gifted several things including a carrot, bitter gourd and a complete DVD set of Alfred Hitchcock collection (if I know you personally and you're interested to watch, get in touch. I'll make soup, you can bring some cookies and we can do pot luck and movies). Right. In a nutshell, this time of the year has always been green and cheerful (not) and just the merriment in the air keeps me warm.

Since my exams got over almost a fortnight ago and my applications are almost done with, I've been scurrying away my time in bed with a book or iPad or book in iPad. I met up with a bunch of school friends and some other few. Life's kinda slow and fuzzy where all I do is eat, sleep and repeat. My folks have given up on me because of this lifestyle but I can't help it. This weather is inducing sheer laziness and sleeptose. I top up my schedule with a movie and some music here and there. I had grand plans of going to Varanasi for a friend's sister wedding and Mumbai with the play cast I was working with. I cancelled both. Rather, permission was denied for one and the other I cancelled. Very glad though. Consider it, it's so cold that my dog has stopped snoring. The ice prince I crushed on (NOT the one on blog roll) is not thawing and has been MIA I suspect it's winter. Ahem.

Anyhow. There is nothing to update other than the music I'm listening, books i am reading and movies I'm watching. I wanted to write this long ass fictional bitchy piece last night but I was snuggling with Murakami and didn't want to move an inch to open this page so that's that. Fuck. It's so cold that I cant even write properly.

To sum up, lyrically (I can never do poetry or song writing hence I dig who do it and prefer playing instrumental jazz myself if you ask my choice) I'm posting these lyrics. Enjoy the wintercalypse!

Ivory Road by King Charles


You're the nose on my bullet
The trigger on my gun
You're the sandbank in the ocean
Oxygen in my blood
You're the fastest of the fish
You're the prickliest pear
You're a chameleon in the night
You're the sahara's sun glare
You're my mind's rest
You're the strings on my guitar
You're the wax in my moustache
The keys to my car
You're the magical mermaid's hollowed illusion
You cool them, fool them
And they hope so much
And you let them down
And you watch from your rock
And your heart beats fast as you watch their's stop
I will keep on loving
'Cos I believe in love
I don't mind dying
If you follow me up
Your victory's your defeat
Your head above your heart
Only the brave surrender
Death cannot tear us apart
Well my smile is wider
Than your's when we meet
And the winter is colder

For me underneath
And I know that you glow
From the inside out
You can keep it for yourself
And I'll go without
You are the fire and I'm the chimney
You'll burn away and I'll choke on your memory
All the words, my sense, you're the poet to my pen
You're the dream that brings the morning sadness
Start the day storm in my head
Well you're the Oscar Wilde short stories in my bookcase
You're positively 4th street isolated in my itunes
You'r the word in the dictionary that I can't spell
Can't describe, can't put in a sentence but use all the time
Your own pair of trousers look better on me
The boots of spanish leather
And the bottom of the sea
Every symbol of love that doesn't relate to a meaning
Every feeling, every sensation
Only real when I'm dreaming
I will keep on loving
'Cos I believe in love
I don't mind dying
If you follow me up
Your victory's your defeat
Your head above your heart
Only the brave surrender
Death cannot tear us apart
Well I wish we were animals free of loves games
I wish we were snails with really big shells
I wish I was a lion, I'd be king of the wild
I'd command all the beasts to carry you when you're tired
I'm the elephant in the circus
Oh, you're my trainer
You'd never let me go
But if you did I would stay here
In love there is freedom
But it must be returned
There must be sacrifice
Love must be learnt
A donkey, a mule, a lifetime of work
In death he rests his head from his reins
No burden to bare but work left him lame
And the lion on the mountain chased from his pride
His lioness stolen, his rival survives
The sound of his cubs in death are dim
He knows his world well, no pain can defeat him
Wild horses in the wilderness
Will know no journey home
Well my love is locked in chains
The lion walks alone
Oh the lion walks alone
Nature is cruel
But he knows it's his home
He to his demons
And you to your own
Please let me stand by you
And we'll conquer them all
We will conquer them all
Oh I will conquer them all (x3)
