It's All About The Music, Man

Home of Izira Nyte and The Forgotten Layers Inn. Resting in an unnamed magical realm, the place is easier to find when lost if one is without the aid of a map drawn by the lady herself.

First Day Of My Life
Bright Eyes
I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning, 2005



This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain
Suddenly everything changed
They’re spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

So I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange
You said everything changed
You felt as if you’d just woke up
And you said “This is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care
I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy.”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

Yes, the Doobie Brothers.



Here to Love You
The Doobie Brothers
Minute by Minute, 1978



I’ve heard it said that the weight of the world’s problems
Is enough to make the ball fall out of space
It ain’t even worth it to live
With all that’s goin’ wrong

Let me just go down saying
That I’m glad to be here
Here with all the same pain and laughs
Everybody knows

Some men think they’re born to be king now
Maybe that’s true
But I think passing love around
Is all we were born to do

Let them build their kingdoms
Let them make the laws for this world to heed
You and I make life worth living
Right here in each others arms

I’m here to love you, baby
No more loneliness
No more emptiness
I’m here to love you, yeah

Let them build their kingdoms
Let them make the laws for this world to heed
You and I make life worth living
Right here in each others arms

I’m here to love you, baby
No more loneliness
No more emptiness
I’m here to love you, yeah

I’m here to love you

Just let me go on loving you
Don’t stop me now while I’m feeling this way

Izira says she thinks of this song when she thinks about Gren. ;)



Eclipse (All Yours)
Metric
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, 2010

All the lives
Always tempted to trade
Will they hate me for
All the choices I made?
Will they stop when they see me again?
I can’t stop, now I know who I am

I’m all yours
I’m not afraid
And you’re all mine
Say what they may
And all your love
I’ll take to the grave
And all my life starts . . .

They can’t tear me down
They can’t take you out of my thoughts
Under every scar
There’s a battle I’ve lost
Will they stop when they see us again?
I can’t stop, now I know who I am

I’m all yours
I’m not afraid
And you’re all mine
Say what they may
And all your love
I’ll take to the grave
And all my life starts
Starts now

Never My Love
The Association
Insight Out, 1967

You ask me if there’ll come a time
When I grow tired of you
Never my love
Never my love

You wonder if this heart of mine
Will lose its desire for you
Never my love
Never my love

What makes you think love will end
When you know that my whole life depends
On you (on you)

Never my love
Never my love

You say you fear I’ll change my mind
And I won’t require you
Never my love
Never my love

How can you think love will end
When I’ve asked you to spend your whole life
With me (with me, with me)

Never my love
Never my love

Never my love
Never my love

Superman (It’s Not Easy)
Five For Fighting
America Town, 2000


I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
I’m just out to find
The better part of me

I’m more than a bird
I’m more than a plane
I’m more than some
Pretty face beside a train

And it’s not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I’ll never see

It may sound absurd
But don’t be naive
Even heroes have
The right to bleed

I may be disturbed
But won’t you concede
Even heroes have
The right to dream

And it’s not easy to be me

Up, up and away
Away from me
Well it’s all right
You can all sleep sound tonight
I’m not crazy
Or anything

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
Men weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I’m only a man
In a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite
On this one way street
Only a man
In a funny red sheet
Looking for special things
Inside of me
Inside of me
Inside of me
Yeah, inside of me
Inside of me

I’m only a man
In a funny red sheet
I’m only a man
Looking for a dream
I’m only a man
In a funny red sheet

And it’s not easy
Woo hoo hoo
It’s not easy to be me
