you kno wat actually she posted this on her FB jus 5mins ago. She said dat Love Out Of Lust" - one of her personal favourites from the album. We're running out of time so have some wine and be proud of who you are!
In the suburbs i learned to drive, and you told me we'd never survive. Grab your mother's keys we are leaving. You always seemed so sure, that one day we'd be fighting in a suburban war. Your part of town against mine. I saw you standing on the opposite shore but by the time the first bombs fell. We were already bored. We were already, already bored.
Kids wanna be so hard but in my dreams we're still screamin' and runnin' through the yard.
And all of the walls and houses that they built in the 70s finally fall. Meant nothin' at all. It meant nothing.
So can you understand that I want a daughter while I’m still young. I want to hold her hand show her some beauty before this damage is done. But if it’s too much to ask, if it’s too much to ask! Send me a son.
Under the overpass
In the parking lot we’re still waiting. It’s already passed so move your feet from hot pavement. And into the grass. Cause it’s already passed.
You want to get a good look at yourself. You stand before a mirror, take off your jacket, unbutton your shirt, open your belt, unzip your fly. The outer clothing falls from you. You take off your shoes and socks, baring your feet. You remove your underwear. At a loss, examine the mirror. There you are, your are not there. (Mark Strand 1934-)
