WHAT ABOUT US: a new anthem by PINK


We are searchlights, we can see in the dark We are rockets, pointed up at the stars We are billions of beautiful hearts... What about us? What about all the times you said you had the answers? What about us? What about all the broken happy ever afters? What about us? What about all the plans that ended in disaster? What about love? What about trust? What about us? We are problems that want to be solved We are children that need to be loved We were willin', we came when you called But man, you fooled us, enough is enough, oh... What about us? What about all the times you said you had the answers? What about us? What about all the broken happy ever afters? Oh, what about us? What about all the plans that ended in disaster? Oh, what about love? What about trust? What about us? Oh, what about us? What about all the plans that ended in disaster? What about love? What about trust? What about us? Sticks and stones, they may break these bones But then I'll be ready, are you ready? It's the start of us, waking up come on Are you ready? I'll be ready I don't want control, I want to let go Are you ready? I'll be ready 'Cause now it's time to let them know We are ready, what about us? What about us? What about all the times you said you had the answers? So what about us? What about all the broken happy ever afters? Oh, what about us? What about all the plans that ended in disaster? Oh, what about love? What about trust? What about us? What about us? What about us? What about us? What about us? What about us? What about us?

I AM HERE: pink


I open up my heart You can love me or not There's no such thing as sin Let it all come right in I wanna make some mistakes, I wanna sleep in the mud I wanna swim in the flood, I wanna fuck 'till I'm done I like whiskey on ice, I like sun in my eyes I wanna burn it all down, so let's start a fire I wanna be lost, so lost that I'm found Naked and laughing with my blood on the ground... I am here, I am here I've already seen the bottom, so there's nothing to fear I know that I'll be ready when the devil is near I am here, I am here All of this wrong, but I'm still right here I don't have the answers, but the question is clear... Let me ask you Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Let me ask you Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Let me ask you... May the light be upon me May I feel in my bones that I am enough I can make anywhere home My fingers are clenched, my stomach's in knots My heart it is racing, but afraid I am not Afraid I am not [Chorus] I am here, I am here I've already seen the bottom, so there's nothing to fear I know that I'll be ready when the devil is near Cause I am here, I am here All of this wrong, but I'm still right here I don't have the answers, but the question is clear... Let me ask you Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Let me ask you Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Where does everybody go when they go? Let me ask you...

QUEERING THE GOOD BASTARD


eyes so seductive--so lascivious...inspiring adoration--inviting lust...the bastard of house stark reigns as king in the north--the beauty of his cuerpo animates the songs it brings forth
flirting with the wildings--or holding court with daenarys...your composure is so utterly effortless--your soul is what you share with us
good bastard of noble blood--we celebrate your divinity...inspired by your beauty--my master cypher--my karmic fantasy
--BYPO PHOENIX c)2017

SHADOW OF THE DAY: linkin park


I close both locks below the window I close both blinds and turn away Sometimes solutions aren't so simple Sometimes goodbye's the only way, oh... And the sun will set for you The sun will set for you And the shadow of the day Will embrace the world in gray And the sun will set for you... In cards and flowers on your window Your friends all plead for you to stay Sometimes beginnings aren't so simple Sometimes goodbye's the only way, oh... And the sun will set for you The sun will set for you And the shadow of the day Will embrace the world in gray And the sun will set for you... And the shadow of the day Will embrace the world in gray And the sun will set for you... And the shadow of the day Will embrace the world in gray And the sun will set for you...

PRAYING: kesha


Well, you almost had me fooled Told me that I was nothing without you Oh, but after everything you've done I can thank you for how strong I have become... 'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell I had to learn how to fight for myself And we both know all the truth I could tell I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell"... I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin' I hope your soul is changin', changin' I hope you find your peace Falling on your knees, praying'... I'm proud of who I am No more monsters, I can breathe again And you said that I was done Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come 'Cause I can make it on my own And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known I'll bring thunder, I'll bring rain, oh When I'm finished, they won't even know your name... You brought the flames and you put me through hell I had to learn how to fight for myself And we both know all the truth I could tell I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell"... I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin' I hope your soul is changin', changin' I hope you find your peace Falling on your knees, praying'... Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night Someday, maybe you'll see the light Oh, some say, in life, you're gonna get what you give But some things only God can forgive... I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin' I hope your soul is changin', changin' I hope you find your peace Falling on your knees, praying'...

LETTER TO A JOHN: ani difranco


Don't ask me why I'm crying I'm not going to tell you what's wrong I'm just gonna sit on your lap For five dollars a song I want you to pay me for my beauty I think it's only right 'cause I have been paying for it All of my life... I'm gonna take the money I make I'm gonna take the money I make I'm gonna take the money I make And I'm gonna go away... We barely have time to react in this world Let alone rehearse And I don't think I'm better than you But I don't think that I'm worse Women learn to be women And men learn to be men And I don't blame it all on you But I don't want to be your friend... I'm gonna take the money I make I'm gonna take the money I make I'm gonna take the money I make And I'm gonna go away... I was eleven years old He was as old as my dad And he took something from me I didn't even know that I had So don't tell me about decency Don't tell me about pride Just give me something for my trouble 'cause this time, it's not a free ride... I'm gonna take the money I make I'm gonna take the money I make I'm gonna take the money I make And I'm gonna go away... Don't ask me why I'm crying I'm not going to tell you what's wrong I'm just gonna sit on your lap For five dollars a songs I want you to pay me for my beauty I think it's only right 'cause I have been paying for it All of my life... Now I just want to take And I'm just gonna take I'm gonna take And I'm gonna go away Songwriters: Ani Difranco Letter to a John lyrics © A Side Music LLC D/B/A Modern Works Music Publishing
