I need a new kinda song, though

I like to pretend my life is a music video.

Siente Mi Amor — Salma Hayek

siente mi amor                                                           feel my love

una historia sin tiempo                                              a timeless story
que no tiene fin                                                          that has no end
un amor como el nuestro                                           a love like ours
no, ni nunca podrá morir                                            no, never will die
quiero ser en tu alma                                                I want to be in your soul
momento feliz                                                            a happy moment
te amaré por siempre                                                 I will love you forever
viviré dentro de ti                                                       I will live within you

en los días de dolor                                                   in days of pain
siente mi amor                                                           feel my love
que vendrá con el viento                                           what comes with the wind
que vendrá con el sol                                                what comes with the sun
en los ojos de Dios                                                    in the eyes of God
lejos de ti                                                                   far from you
me verás en sueños                                                  you will see me in dreams
sentirás mis besos                                                     you will feel my kisses
me oirás reír                                                               you will hear me laugh

si te sientes solo                                                         if you feel lonely
y estás en silencio                                                      and are in silence
piensa en mis caricias                                                 think of my caresses
y en nuestros secretos                                               and of our secrets
quiero ser en tu alma                                                  I want to be in your soul
momento feliz                                                              a happy moment
te amaré por siempre                                                  I will love you forever
viviré dentro de ti                                                        I will live within you

en los días de dolor                                                     in days of pain
siente mi amor                                                             feel my love
que vendrá con el viento                                             what comes with the wind
que vendrá con el sol                                                  what comes with the sun
en los ojos de Dios                                                      in the eyes of God
lejos de ti                                                                     far from you
me verás en sueños                                                    you will see me in dreams
sentirás mis besos                                                       you will feel my kisses
me oirás reír                                                                 you will hear me laugh

me oirás reír                                                                 you will hear me laugh

siente mi amor                                                              feel my love
siente mi amor                                                              feel my love

     

      

I’d give credit to a lyrics site but frankly everywhere I looked had either the exact same incorrect lyrics or different incorrect lyrics, so I corrected them, including the proper accents.  For fun, I also included the translation in English (hopefully it’s also correct).  As far as I know, and kind of surprisingly, these are the only correct lyrics and the most correct translation of this song on the net.

Mean Reds

it’s a scary place
this red room
where I lay
burying my face

it wasn’t new though
this red room
never sure when
I’d be there, true

some they run away
some they hide
some they take it all
take it all in stride
some they pamper
some they fear
some they take it all
and bring it here
to this red room
this red room
I’ll come back soon

Day 1, Part Deux

Things on the beach, round 2:

  • butterfly shell guys digging in the sand
  • a turtle made of sand, complete with a seaweed toupée and a water bottle
  • another sand flea (actual creature, not flea made from sand haha)
  • 1 sea urchin
  • 1 fish head (please don’t let the song get in my head…..)
  • 1 couple stopping for a lil’ make-out session (don’t see that often….. mostly families, but even couples don’t usually do much of the PDA stuff, not that it’s a problem or anything haha, just unusual hence its inclusion on the list!)
  • 1 creep-o-zoid (plus, being bald with a sunburnt face is a strange look, folks….. just FYI 😉 haha)
  • 1 school of fishies
  • 1 gorgeous sun

Maple

on the underside of a leaf
it was written like a picture
slow, delicate, strokes
finding a lost path along each vein
and I read it aloud
listening to each line
tracing it in my mind
letting the song begin

and did I save you? I’m sorry
if the life crossed over
shining within you so bright
with the scent of new rain
it’s almost too much to feel
you let me breathe tonight

Inspection

“you don’t know me,
and you don’t even care”

breath is disappearing
somewhere deep inside of me
somewhere numb and bleeding
there’s a whole lung gone
I knew I couldn’t be wrong
and now I die inside
wondering wondering why
the birds are circling
they knew all along
a poor idiot like me
was sure to be a target
so spare me my excellence
spare me my time
just spare me

I liked it when I was young
innocence was fine
nothing expected of me
and I upstaged life
but when did the stage fall
when did I lose hope
when will I breathe again
please, let me breathe again
please let me be
me
