Songs and ABCs

Mainly for swtjemz:
"Colors are fragrant, but they fade away. In this world of ours none lasts forever. Today cross the high mountain of life's illusions and there will be no more shallow dreaming, no more drunkenness." (The latter bit has the feeling of "there will be no more uneasiness, no more temptation.")

See what I mean about much cooler than our ABC song?

And 'cause I feel like it, I'm posting the uplifting lyrics from one of the songs from Colma: The Musical. (mizutamari, this one's for you, hon! And you know you share my happy place! :)



One day I'll find my happy place, and I ain't gonna
share nothing with you 'cause you've got your own
You've your own

One day, I'll find my happy place, and I'm determined
that I'm never gonna find my way back out
My way back out

I know it lies somewhere beyond the clouds and open air
My heart is stopping; I don't care
I know that I'll be...the-e-e-ere

One day, I'll find my happy place
And maybe then I'll find a person who can curl up in my heart
In my heart

I know it lies somewhere beyond the clouds and open air
My heart is stopping; I don't care
I know that I'll be there!

One step at a time, I climb to the highest point
I know that if I try, I'll fly so high, you won't believe
What I can do, it's true
My happy place is waiting in the sky
And I can meet you there

One day, I'll find my happy place
And now you konw the truth about me and I take none of it back
Take nothing back

One day, I'll find my happy place
But for today I'll just imagine what it feels like to be there...



Speaking of happy places... I wonder where my copy of The Picture got to? It would amuse me as a desktop background.
