lyrique du jour

(this is me putting of talking about the new year and the last week i have to live.)

i saw juno again last night (as mandi saved me from certain mental suicide). the opening credits are awesome and make me wish i could draw. better than the animation is the music. All I Want is You by Barry Louis Polisar.

if i was a flower growing wild and free,
all i'd want is you to be my sweet honeybee.
and if i was a tree growing tall and green,
all i'd want is you to shade me and be my leaves.

all i want is you will; you be my bride?
take me by the hand and stand by my side.
all i want is you; will you stay with me?
hold me in your arms and sway me like the sea.

if you were a river in the mountains tall
the rumble of your water would be my call.
if you were the winter i know i'd be the snow
just as long as you were with me when the cold winds blow.

if you were a wink i'd be a nod.
if you were a seed, well, i'd be a pod.
if you were the floor i'd want to be the rug.
if you were a kiss i know i'd be a hug.

if you were the wood i'd be the fire.
if you were the love i'd be the desire.
if you were a castle i'd be your mote.
and if you were the ocean i'd learn how to float.

Mr. Polisar mostly writes children's music and books. My kids will be allowed, and encouraged, to listen to him.
