'Lay & Love'
by Bonnie Prince Billy and Dawn McCarthy
(Directed by Vernon Chatham and John Lee)

From what I've seen, you're magnificent
You fight evil with all you do
Your every act is spectacular
It makes me lay here and love you

From what I hear, you are generous
You make sunshine and glory too
When you walk in things go luminous
It makes me lay here and love you

From what I know, you are terrified
You have a mistrust running through you
Your smile is hiding something hurtful
It makes me lay here and love you

It makes me lay here and love you
I'm filled with violet and red and blue
I have a feeling from what I do
That you might lay there and love me too

(Thank you LionHuntsRabbit for introducing me to this song)

Exquisite collection of pics. I especially like the second one from the top, with its washed out colors; it looks Japanese somehow, poetic and mysterious.

If you want to get together and go shopping some time in LA, email me at:
It would be fun!

Gabbi said...

~That headdress is cute isn't it dear Spain? The photo brings to mind Peter Pan's lost boys...

~Thank you dear Billie, I love browsing around 'borrowing' photographs...especially when I'm at work stressed. A few clicks and I forget about deadlines completely :) I think I might have heard one of their duets, but not the whole album. Now that you've recommend I'll have to find...hope you're having a nice week.

~Hello Geisha, yeah, I need to work on a banner now... :)

~hola g! :) gracias...tambien me gusto la letra. bonita, romantica y un poco triste. 'cancion de prevert' es uno de mis blogs favoritos y sabes que aunque nunca me atrevia a dejar comentarios lo visitaba seguido, el primer post que encontre fue el de 'cry baby' de john uno de mis videos favoritos.

~I'm looking forward to meeting your best friend Chloé :) and how awesome would it be to meet you too when you visit! Hope your week is going well...xoxo

Gracias (once more) por los comentarios. Me gustan las imágenes que pusiste, y más juntas y con la canción. Esa es la escena que más recordaba de Cry Baby.
