Black Metallic

I’ve never seen you when you’re smiling
It really gets under my skin
You say it’s easy when it’s faster
I still can’t guess what you’re after

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

I think of you when you’re sleeping
Of all the secrets that you’re keeping
You can’t stay all day under the covers
‘Cause under there you’ll discover

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You’re turning black metallic

It’s the color of your skin
It’s the color of your skin

Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
You’re turning black metallic

It’s the color of your skin
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic
Your skin is black metallic

The Girl From Ipanema

 

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking and
When she passes, each one she passes goes “ah”

(Brazilian/Portuguese:)

Moça do corpo dourado do sol de ipanema
O seu balançado mais que um poema
a coisa mais linda que eu já vi passar..

Translation:

(When she walks, she’s like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle that
When she passes, each one she passes goes “oh”….)

But I watch her so sadly
How can I tell her, “I love you?”
Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day, when she walks to the sea
She looks straight ahead, not at me

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking and
When she passes, I smile but she doesn’t see

She just doesn’t see

She doesn’t see me

In life, I’m not interested in competing or trying to be better than anyone. I only strive to create and become the best version of myself.

Become a better version of yourself.

“We are not defined by our trials, but by how we face them. We are all afraid; bravery is a choice, that though you may lose, you shall never be defeated.” – Jill Anzinger Imagine how your life would look like if you wouldn’t be afraid. How you’d act, talk, walk, pursue your dreams… But […]

Here’s Izzy basking on her dock, soaking up the rays of her heat lamp. I love how she spreads out her back feet and tucks her front feet into her shell when she basks.  She has that look on her face like “Okay, you can leave me alone now.” She’s so spoiled.

Basking all day with all the food you want. Now this is the life!
