This bed is on fire
With passionate love
The neighbours complain about the noises above
But she only comes when she’s on top

My therapist said not to see you no more
She said you’re like a disease without any cure
She said I’m so obsessed that I’m becoming a bore, oh no
Ah, you think you’re so pretty

Caught your hand inside the till
Slammed your fingers in the door
Fought with kitchen knives and skewers
Dressed me up in womens clothes
Messed around with gender roles
Dye my eyes and call me pretty

Moved out of the house, so you moved next door
I locked you out, you cut a hole in the wall
I found you sleeping next to me, I thought I was alone
You’re driving me crazy, when are you coming home

"Trouble"  Coldplay

O no, I see,
I spun a web, it's tangled up with me,
And I lost my head,
The thought of all the stupid things I said,
O no what's this? 
A spider web, and I'm caught in the middle,
I turned to run,
The thought of all the stupid things I've done,
I never meant to cause you trouble,
And I never meant to do you wrong,
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble,
O no, I never meant to do you harm.
O no I see,
A spider web and it's me in the middle, So I twist and turn,
Here I am in love in a bubble,
Singing, I never meant to cause you trouble,
I never meant to do you wrong, And I, well if I ever caused you trouble,

Although I never meant to do you harm. 

They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me.

A cannonball
She cracked the wall
Olympic all
She's just a bruised up
creature made of love
A bloody dove
From the above
Unknown, the Swollen Princessis here
Princess is here, Princess is here

Now I'm free Yes I'm free
And I'm just in time for tea
Yes I'm free Look at me
What you get is what you see

And if I tell you all the truth
Would you promise not to cry
I prefer it back inside
It's nothin' that you did or said
I'm just kinda scared
I've just heard life is
a fatal disease

She got the grip
New virgin lip
Tornado sip
Synthetic bright blue
berry coloured eyes
10,000 cries
10,000 smiles
Unknown, the Swollen Princess is here
Princess is here, Princess is here

Now I'm free Yes I'm free
And I'm just in time for tea
Yes I'm free Look at me
What you get is what you see

And if I am your pride and joy
Could you find it in your hearts
Could you let me back inside
You know I must apologize
If I did offend
I've just heard life is
a fatal disease

And if I tell you all the truth
Would you promise not to cry
I prefer it back inside
It's nothin' that you did or said
I'm just kinda scared
I've just heard life is
a fatal disease

"Tears" abstract expressionism acrylic painting Nancy Daleo

 

 "TEARS"
Original Acrylic Painting on canvas
Size: 30" x 40" x 1 3/8"

Led Boots Jeff Beck


Amy Winehouse - Tears Dry On Their Own


All I can ever be to you,
is the darkness that we knew
And this regret I had to get accustomed to
Once it was so right
When we were at our high,
Waiting for you in the hotel at night,
I knew I hadn't met my match,
But every moment we could snatch,
I dont know why I got so attached,
Its my responsibility,
And you dont owe nothing to me,
But to walk away I have no capacity

He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but Im grown,
And in this grey, in this blue shade,
My tears dry on their own

I dont understand,
Why do I stress a man,
When theres so many better things at hand,
We could never had it all,
We had to hit a wall,
So this is inevitable withdrawlal,
Even if I stop wanting you,
And perspective pushes through
Ill be some next man's other woman soon,

I shouldn't play myself again,
I should be my own best friend,
Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men,

He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but Im grown,
And it's ok,
In this blue shade
My tears dry on their own,

So we are history,
Your shadow covers me,
The sky above,
A blaze only that only lovers see

He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but Im grown,
And (it's) ok,
In this blue shade,
My tears dry on their own,


I wish I could say no regrets,
And no emotional debts,
And as we kiss goodbye the sun sets,
So we are history,
The shadow covers me,
The sky above a blaze that only lovers see,

He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I'm grown,
And (it's) ok,
In this blue shade,
My tears dry on their own,

He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I am grown,
And (it's) ok,
In this blue shade,
My tears dry on their own,

He walks away,
The sun goes down,
He takes the day but I am grown,
And (it's) ok,
My deep shade,
My tears dry.

Shredded

SHREDDED
It's not unusual to be loved by anyone
It's not unusual to have fun with anyone
but when I see you hanging about with anyone
It's not unusual to see me cry,
oh I wanna' die
It's not unusual to go out at any time
but when I see you out and about it's such a crime
if you should ever want to be loved by anyone,
It's not unusual it happens every day no matter what you say
you find it happens all the time
love will never do what you want it to
why can't this crazy love be mine
It's not unusual, to be mad with anyone
It's not unusual, to be sad with anyone
but if I ever find that you've changed at anytime
it's not unusual to find out that I'm in love with you

Fool's Paradise

FOOL'S PARADISE
Nancy Daleo  Los Angeles, California
Original Oil painting on canvas. Size: 60" x 48" x 1.5"

Sarah McLachlan- Illusions of Bliss

Here I go again... back into your arms
What ever happened to resolve?
For though I thought that I was strong, that I could carry on
Awash in the illusion of this bliss

Here I go again... back into the flame
Like a moth so willing to be burned
A little touch a little taste the pheromones embrace
And I get weak with every breathe I take

'Cause it's you who released me
It's you who gave me fire
Oh and now it's impossible to grow
Without breaking stride... I get so high

Take me out beyond the incline
Make it past the former fault line
For today I let the moment win

Here I go again... saying things I shouldn't say
Just so I can hear them back from you

Oh I know I shouldn't stay
I should be on my way
Back to a place I know is real
But the lines are getting blurred
My conscience wont be heard
Awash in the illusion of this bliss

And it's you who released me
It's you who gave me fire
Oh and now it's impossible to grow
Without breaking stride... I get so high

Take me out beyond the incline
Make it past the former fault line
For today I let the moment win

 BOUND, TANGLED, AND TWISTED
Nancy Daleo   Los Angeles, California  Mixed Media

Evanescence- My immortal

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone
These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me
You used to captivate me

By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it ears
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me
These wounds won't seem to heal

This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase
I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone

But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

Jimi told the press: "You're really going to be disappointed when you hear our first track on our new LP, because it starts with a 90 second sound painting of the heavens. I know it's the thing people will jump on to criticize so we're putting it right at the beginning to get it over with."...And The Gods Made Love" Jimi Hendrix

"
"QUEEN JEALOUSY"
Oil on Canvas
Anger, he smiles,
towering in shiny metallic purple armour
Queen Jealousy, envy waits behind him
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground

Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted,
They quietly understand
Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,
But wonder why the fight is on
But they're all bold as love, yeah, they're all bold as love
Yeah, they're all bold as love
Just ask the axis

My red is so confident that he flashes trophies of war,
and ribbons of euphoria
[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/jimi-hendrix-lyrics/bold-as-love-lyrics.html ]
Orange is young, full of daring,
But very unsteady for the first go round
My yellow in this case is not so mellow
In fact I'm trying to say it's frigthened like me
And all these emotions of mine keep holding me from, eh,
Giving my life to a rainbow like you
But, I'm eh , yeah, I'm bold as love
Yeah, yeah
Well I'm bold, bold as love (hear me talking, girl)
I'm bold as love
Just ask the axis (he knows everything)
Yeah,
yeah,
yeah!

I will light the match this mornin' so I won't be alone
Watch as she lies silent for soon light will be gone
Oh I will stand arms outstretched pretend I'm free to roam
Oh I will make my way through one more day in, hell
How much difference does it make
How much difference does it make yeah
I will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
Oh I'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired
Oh I will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
Hey, I won't change direction, and I won't change my mind
How much difference does it make
How much difference does it make, how much difference
I'll swallow poison, until I grow immune
I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
How much difference
How much difference does it make

Phantasmic Dance Through Electric Blue


Phantasmic Dance Through Electric Blue

Chris Stills - Story Of A Dying Man

Here's a little moment of truth that's gonna
bring your nature down
Put your back up
against the wall and 
make it come around
Story of a dying man
Trying as best as he can
To win the word of the 
woman he is drawn to
He does a little living there
He does a little dying there
And in the end you wonder 
if he will come through
And how he'll make do
Without...
Here's a little dust left 
over from the stars there
in his eye
Held a little close for 
comfort to the
dreams he left behind
Story of a dying man 


Trying as best as he can
To win the word of the 
woman he is drawn to


He does a little living there
But mostly he's dying there
And thinking 'bout the rest 
of his life to come through
And how he'll 
Make do
Without...
But he don't know the way
He don't know how 
He is going to understand
When she's so far away
So far away from the 
world at his own hands
Story of a dying man
trying as best as he can


To win the word of the 
woman he is drawn to


He does a little living there
He does a little dying there
And in the end you wonder 
if he will come through
And how he'll 
make do
Without...
He doesn't really 
want to hurt or 
save anybody
As far as he's concerned
It's all in the Master Plan
But the words of wisdom 
come round to
Beckon Love
once again
And he can't
Help but think
of The End....
Story of a dying man...

You tucked me in just like a child now
Cause every time you hold me in your arms
I'm comfortable enough to feel your warmth
It starts in my soul
And I lose all control
When you kiss my nose
The feelin shows
Cause you make me smile
Baby just take your time now
Holdin me tight
Where ever, where ever, where ever you go
Where ever, where ever, where ever you go
Where ever you go, I'll always know
Cause you make me smile here, just for a while

Oh, Baby, it's cryin' time, Oh, Baby, I got to fly. 
Got to try to find a way, Got to try to get away, 


'Cause you know I gotta get away from you, Babe. 

Oh, Baby, the river's red, Oh, Baby, in my head. 
There's a funny feelin' goin' on, I don't think I can hold out long. 

*And when the owls cry in the night, Oh, Baby, Baby, when the pines begin to cry, 
Baby, Baby, Baby, how do you feel? If the river runs dry, Baby, 
How do you feel? 

Craze, Baby, the rainbow's end, Baby, it's just a den 
For those who hide, Who hide their love to depths of life 
And ruin dreams that we all knew so, Babe.

Ooo, you're givin' me the fever tonight
I don't wanna give in

You forget, I've seen you work before
Take `em straight to the top
Leave `em cryin' for more
I've seen you burn `em before
Fire and Ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and Ice
I wanna give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart
You'll just tear it apart
Movin' in for the kill tonight
You got every advantage when they put out the lights
It's not so pretty when it fades away
Cause it's just an illusion in this passion play
I've seen you burn `em before
So you think you got it all figured out
You're an expert in the field, without a doubt
But I know your methods inside and out
And I won't be takin' in by Fire and Ice

You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder

I should have quit you, long time ago.
I wouldn't be here, my children, down on this killin' floor.

I should have listened, baby, to my second mind
Everytime I go away and leave you, darling, you send me the blues way down the line.

Said, people worry I can't keep you satisfied.
Let me tell you baby, you ain't nothin but a two-bit, no-good jive.

Went to sleep last night, worked as hard as I can,
Bring home my money, you take my money, give it to another man.
I should have quit you, baby, such a long time ago.
I wouldn't be here with all my troubles, down on this killing floor.

Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg.
The way you squeeze my lemon, I'm gonna fall right out of bed.

I'm gonna leave my children down on this killing floor.

CRY, CRY BABY
Cry-y-y ... ha ha ha ha ... baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Welcome back home.
I know she told you,
I know she told you that she loved you
Much more than I do,
But I know she left you,
And you swear that you just don't know why,
Well, you know that I'll always be round
If you ever want me
Come on and cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, yeah,
Oh, like you always seem to do.
Don't you know,
Honey, nobody ever gonna love you
The way I try to do.
Who'll be willing to take your pain
And all your heartache, too ?
Honey, I swear I'll always, I'll always be around
If you ever want me
Come on and cry, cry baby, cry baby yeah, cry baby, yeah,
Oh daddy, welcome back home, yeah.
I know when you're sharp and round, babe,
Seems like the grass always looks greener,
When you're looking over there in somebody else's back-yard
So I know what you're tryin' to tell me
When you say, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama,
I've gotta go out shopping for my life
I've gotta find my, my own true third eye,
Hare Krishna identity out there on the road there.
And although it may be comfortable here
Sleeping in all your nice bed with all those satin sheets
And all that nice fur, eatin' all that chicken
Gettin' stoned, havin' a good time I have to go and rough it
I have to go to Africa
Or I have to go to Omaha, or some place like that,
I have to find myself, you know what I mean ?
So there's this stud, man, walkin' around the fuckin' highways of America with a pack on his back
Lookin' for his identity, right ?
Well, I want to say baby don't you know you left your mama here all alone ?
You left your good lovin' mama right at home
And that should be identity enough for any man, ha ha ha!
So I said baby, I know that you're gonna come home to me some day
And I'll be able to tell when you walk in my front door
I do, I just do believe that I can be lookin' in your eyes
So Lord, you finally realize
So you can put your head on my shoulder, babe,
'Cause I know you got some more tears to share,
Come on, let it go,
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on,
Honey, cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry,
Honey when you got some more tears to shed
Honey I won't let a man stand in your way, babe,
You have to snap all your fear from the door house away dear
You just gotta let it go, baby, come on,
Honey cry, oh, cry to me baby.

Is it a hit or a miss ?
