Life As A Hedgepig
 
My "Cowboy Bebop" Song

"Cowboy Bebop" is an anime show, my favourite of that genre. I found a quiz on-line (I love on-line quizzes) that was supposed to determine the quiz-takers "CB" song, and this one is mine:

Adieu

Been a fool, been a clown
Lost my way from up and down
And I know, yes I know
And I see in your eyes
That you really weren't surprised at me at all
Not at all
And I know by your smile it's you

Don't care for me, don't cry
Let's say goodbye, adieu
It's time to say goodbye, I know that in time
It will just fade away, it's time to say goodbye

I stand alone and watch you fade away like clouds
High up and in the sky
I'm strong and so cold
As I stand alone
Goodbye, so long, adieu

Oh how I love you so, lost in those memories
And now you've gone
I feel the pain, feeling like a fool, adieu

My love for you burns deep
inside me, so strong
Embers of times we had
And now here I stand lost in a memory
I see your face and smile

Oh how I love you so, lost in those memories
And now you've gone
I feel the pain, feeling like a fool, adieu

My love for you burns deep
inside me, so strong
Embers of times we had
And now here I stand lost in a memory
I see your face and smile

I confess that I took the quiz a second time, to see if I could get a different result, since I didn't know "Adieu" that well, and wasn't sure that I liked it. Now I do like it, and I think it was the right result. I can see John, and my relationship with him, all over this song.

Dressing Up, Dressing Down

Still to be neat, still to be dressed
As you were going to a feast;
Still to be powdered, still perfumed--
Lady, it is to be presumed
Though art's hid causes are not found,
All is not sweet, all is not sound.

Give me a look, give me a face,
That makes simplicity a grace;
Robes loosely flowing, hair as free:
Such sweet neglect more taketh me
Than all the adulteries of art;
They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.
--Ben Jonson

Whenas in silks my Julia goes,
Then, then (methinks) how sweetly flows
That liquefaction of her clothes.

Next, when I cast my eye and see
That brave vibration each way free,
O how that glittering taketh me!
--Robert Herrick
