Imitation of life

Charades pop skill
Water hyacinth
Name by a poet
Imitation of life

Like a koi in a frozen pond
Like a goldfish in a bowl
I don’t want to hear you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that’s Hollywood
Come on, come on
No-one can see you try

You want the greatest thing
The greatest thing since bread came sliced
You’ve got it all
You’ve got it sized

Like a Friday fashion show
Teenager cruising in the corner
Trying to look like you don’t try

That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that’s Hollywood
Come on, come on
No-one can see you try

No-one can see you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That’ freezing rain, that’s what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry

This sugar cane, this lemonade
This hurricane, I’m not afraid
Come on, come on
No-one can see me cry

This lightning storm, this tidal wave
This avalanche, I’m not afraid
Come on, come on
No-one can see me cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That’s who you are, that’s what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry

That sugar cane that tasted good
That’s who you are, that’s what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry

R.E.M.

  1. Há tanto tempo… Quase 20 anos depois, reencontro-te aqui. Já não te deves lembrar de mim. Mas, por causa de um site que permite “viajar no tempo dentro da internet”, fui a um dos meus antigos blogs, onde encontrei o link do teu. 🙂 Foste quem me criou o meu primeiro blog. Em wordpress. Um blog azul água chamado qualquer coisa como Mammon. Lembras-te? Hoje tenho o apeteces-me.com e outros. Fiquei feliz por este reencontro! Gostava de entrar em contacto contigo. Qual é o teu mail? Espero que esteja tudo bem. 🙂
