About me

Location Seattle, Washington, United States
Introduction What are men? Mortal gods.
What are gods? Immortal men.

Oh, there's more to life than books, you know
But not much more, not much more

well I guess I'm an underwater thing
so I guess I can't take it personally

Bright lights, big city
Went to my baby's head
Oh, the bright lights, the big city
Went to my baby's head

The frighted Goddess to her mother cries,
But all in vain, for now far off she flies;
Far she behind her leaves her virgin train;
To them too cries, and cries to them in vain,
And, while with passion she repeats her call,
The vi'lets from her lap, and lillies fall:
She misses 'em, poor heart! and makes new moan;
Her lillies, ah! are lost, her vi'lets gone.

I'm in love
What's that song?
I'm in love
With that song
Interests books
