Topic: Favourite lines from a song
Posted: 28 Jul 2020 12:53

U2 is one of my favorite bands of all time. This song is less known - but the lines of this one are a favorite:

U2 - Hawkmoon 269

Like a desert needs rain
Like a town needs a name
I need your love
Like a drifter needs a room
Hawk moon
I need your love
I need your love

Like a rhythm unbroken
Like drums in the night
Like sweet soul music
Like sunlight
I need your love

Like coming home
And you don't know where you've been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love...

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love
I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love
(I need your love)

Like the hot needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love...

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

I need your love...

Like thunder needs rain
Like a preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a sheet stained
I need your love
(I need your love)

Like a needle in a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love

I need your love...

Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

(In the heart of the heat of the love)
Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
(In the heart of the heat of the love)
I need your love...

Not my favorite song - but favorite lines from this haunting song

Alanis Morissette - Uninvited

Like any uncharted territory
I must seem greatly intriguing
You speak of my love like
You have experienced love like mine before
But this is not allowed

You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

Topic: What Kind of Car Did You Drive in High School?
Posted: 25 Jul 2020 09:41

My 20th forum post! I drove a 1974 Orange Datsun pick-up truck in High School - but my senior year I bought and drove a sparkling green street legal dune buggy made from a Volkswagen bug.

Topic: What hobbies do you do to relax?
Posted: 25 Jul 2020 09:36

I'm trying to post up to the 20 count so I can be a grown up here - but obvious to my photo - love to ride my motorcycle. 1999 Harley Davidson Dyna Wide Glide with a Screaming Eagle Big bore kit and customized just the way I want it. My Chopper.

Topic: That one song...
Posted: 25 Jul 2020 09:30

https://www.youtube.com/embed/E97CmNK3NtU

Mony Mony - by Billy Idol - it is the dance song that brought out the groove in my wife and I - before marriage and after. Although there are many slow songs that we danced to - this was the one that made us love being ridiculous on the dance floor. To this day - we can still bounce to it as we sing along - often looking at each other while we do.

Topic: Longest drive
Posted: 25 Jul 2020 09:20

I think my longest was Virginia/DC to Seattle/Tacoma in Washington State, although I have driven all over the United States and there are only a few left that I have not driven through. One of the longest I drove straight was Dallas, Texas to Boise, Idaho. I have driven in other countries too, but the longest drives in the USA.

It was a dark and stormy night, in a metropolis before UBER, GRAB, and iPhones. She had been with friends but was now alone, although with an umbrella, no taxi in sight.

He noticed her walking alone and was still a believer in chivalry. She was not too...

Fire & Ice - Chapter 3

Jenna was intrigued by Ray's homework for her after their first official life coach session. Although she was vaguely familiar with what she knew to be a sensory deprivation tank, she had to agree with Ray, that a 'float tank' was a better marketing name for it. The main reason she knew about those tanks was a fiction novel she had read years back, The Door to December, or something like...

Wandering Jack - The Curse

I am here to tell my own story. It's not yet over and I will have to go backwards before going forwards in order for you to understand my circumstances. I don't much like the word damned, as it has a history of being so final. I resist that I am damned, although I fully accept that I am cursed. You see, I made some bad decisions. I am sure there is not anyone out there that has not. So, I...

Downstream

I've traveled many miles before reaching you. Fallen from vast heights, down waterfalls, rivers and through streams. My pollution is minimal as I have always kept moving. Now, I want to be a lake, never to leave you. A sanctuary you are to me. I feel safe, I feel clean, I feel fresh each day. My past is behind me. I have come a long way to be with you. As a lake, we must yet flow a little...

Fire & Ice - Chapter 2

Jenna returned to her office after her breakfast meeting with Ray Evans excited for the rest of her day. He had been right about the Mediterranean Omelette, it had been delicious. She felt recharged and had a little more bounce to her step. She carefully reviewed the contract and legal forms that he sent to her email. They were quite transparent really, and she felt good about signing them...

Waiting

She walked to the window, desiring to step from the dark toward light. Where was he now? Did she really want the answer to that? He was dedicated to a system that took more than it gave. It took him away from her. It always left her waiting for his return. He gave her everything. It was more than a job to him, she knew that. She loved him. She had sons by him and they loved him too. They...
