words I wish I'd written

"She has the soul of a poet and the fire of a bullet."

lyrics that seem particularly relevant at the moment (though, admittedly, I'm just reading too much into things like usual)



"Los Angeles" by The Audition

She said,
"I'm jealous of Los Angeles, she gets to keep you for a month or two
And I don't know if I can handle this the thought of being without you."

I know it's cold, but baby maybe we can stay a little longer
Then warm up those toes, the last thing we need is to blow our cover
And I know it's tough to reconsider what you thought was love
But I'm so proud of all the plans you're speaking of

Lay with me stay with me now, oh
'Cause you are all I think about

She said, "I'm jealous of Los Angeles, she gets to keep you for a month or two
And I don't know if I can handle this the thought of being without you."
She said, "I'm sorry for the way I've been, it's so much harder, but I guess we'll see
If I can prove myself wrong, show you I can be stronger than we thought that I would be."

I said, "Let's go and baby, maybe I can show you what you need to know
And how to cope the citizens can listen in but they will never know
About this love and just how stronger we can be
So what if they don't like the plans that we've been speaking of?"

I'll crave your kiss while you're gone, oh
So much I'm missing that alone

She said, "I'm jealous of Los Angeles she gets to keep you for a month or two
And I don't know if I can handle this the thought of being without you."
She said, "I'm sorry for the way I've been it's so much harder, but I guess we'll see
If I can prove myself wrong, show you I can be stronger than we thought that I would be."

And I can commit to change
(I said I'm sorry for the way I've been)
If you can promise to stay the same
(It's so much harder than I thought it'd be)
And never let this fade
(I said I'm sorry for the way I've been)
Baby, just promise to stay the same
(It's so much harder than I thought it'd be)

She said, "I'm jealous of Los Angeles she gets to keep you for a month or two
And now I know that I can handle this the thought of being without you."
She said, "I'm sorry for the way I've been it's so much harder, but I guess we'll see
If I can prove myself wrong, show you I can be stronger than we thought that I would be."


"You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" as sung by Madeleine Peyroux


I've seen love go by my door
It's never been this close before
Never been so easy or so slow
Been shooting in the dark too long
When something's not right it's wrong
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

[...]

Situations have ended sad,
Relationships have all been bad.
Mine've been like Verlaine's and Rimbaud.
But there's no way I can compare
All those scenes to this affair,
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go

You're gonna make me wonder what I'm doing,
Staying far behind without you.
You're gonna make me wonder what I'm saying,
You're gonna make me give myself a good talking to.


"A Whole New World" from Disney's Aladdin


(Aladdin:)A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

(Jasmine:)A whole new world
A dazzling place i never knew
But now from way up here
It's crystal clear
That now i'm in a whole new world
With you
(Aladdin:)Now i'm in a whole new world with you

(Jasmine:)Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

(Jasmine:) A whole new world
(Aladdin:) Don't you dare close your eyes
(Jasmine:) A hundred thousand things to see
(Aladdin:) Hold your breath- it gets better
(Jasmine:)I'm like a shooting star, I've come so far I can't go back to where i used to be

(Aladdin:) A whole new world
(Aladdin:) With new horrizons to pursue

[...]

(Jasmine:) A whole new world
(Aladdin:) A whole new world
(Jasmine:) Thats where we'll be
(Aladdin:) Where we will be
(Jasmine:) A thrilling change
(Aladdin:) A wonderous place
(Both:) For you and me
