Mood #Invisible

Like a grain on the beach
Like a star in the sky
Far too many to count with the naked eye
They won’t see you

Go ahead
Walk on by
You don’t know I’m alive
Maybe one day you’ll find
You should open your eyes
You don’t know me

[Chorus]
You’re the one who looked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
And you’re the one who walked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible

Little things adding up
Try so hard not to rush
Giving in, letting go of the world we know
They won’t see you

Force it down
Lose the taste
They all think it’s a waste
We don’t need to believe every word they say, now
They don’t know me

[Chorus]
You’re the one who looked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
And you’re the one who walked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible

It’s so easy to be lost
But maybe you’re not lost at all

Do you recognize me?
Do you know who I am?
Do you see me now?
Do you see me now?

[Chorus]
You’re the one who looked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
And you’re the one who walked right through me
Now you’re saying that you knew me
When I was invisible
I’m invisible
I’m invisible

The Media Mastermind turned Boho Photographer Joe Simpson

Joe Simpson is now a photographer based in Malibu. His career has been epic and a tad rebellious ergo Bohemian from his early days as a Baptist Youth Minister, to managing his superstar daughters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson plus his genius plan to give both daughters reality TV shows that catapulted their careers from music into most notably the eldest daughter’s billion dollar fashion line: The Jessica Simpson Collection. He has always been streets head of other music managers as seen by his initiative to produce reality TV shows for his musical daughters and his recent foray into fine art photography. This man may be behind the scenes but his vision is often waaaaay ahead of time.

Simpson is a creative pioneer in his own right whether exploiting emerging new markets such as reality television to producing music or editorial fashion photography Simpson serves the edgy trends ahead of time. I find him inspiring and respect him a lot, truth be told there’s not a whole lot of media/interviews on him. I wish I could learn more about him, about what drives him and influences his creative and executive decisions in his own and offspring’s careers. I think he’s a phenomenal talent with a discerning eye in the music industry and visual arts.

Sadly we don’t get to hear more about his vision as things tend to stray toward the superstar sisters he has raised and managed.

Joe Simpson is Bohemian worthy for his life-long career in the arts and music scene plus he has a forward-thinking ideas in arts and pop culture.

The Folk-turned-Techno-Music Boho Babe: Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding is the Musical Pride of Herefordshire! She has arisen to astronomical success and her music goes from strength to strength. She’s living the Rockstar’s life and is an eclectic talent from the early days of her folksy debut album Lights to her recent electronica album Delirium. She also likes poetry and it even inspires her song-writing: “I like dark, funny, humorous stuff. I read a few books of poems, Staying Alive, a compilation of poems that are really real and raw, and quite explicit, so I use those.”

A personal favourite track is “The Writer” as it sounds quite artsy. It takes me back to Summer 2010, a time in my life where I appeared to have it all, law school, friends and I was dating someone but my Bohemian longings were stirring and little did I know that following Autumn the seeds of Bohemia were being scattered….

“The Writer”

You wait for a silence
I wait for a word
Lying next to your frame
Girl unobserved
You change your position
And you’re changing me
Casting these shadows
Where they shouldn’t beWe’re interrupted
By the heat of the sun
Trying to prevent
What’s already begun
You’re just a body
I can smell your skin
And when I feel it
You’re wearing thinBut I’ve got a plan
Why don’t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer?
And decide the words I say?
‘Cause I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask
Won’t you try to help me?Sat on your sofa
It’s all broken springs
This isn’t the place for
Those violin strings
I try out a smile
And I aim it at you
You must have missed it
You always doBut I’ve got a plan
Why don’t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer?
And decide the words I say?
‘Cause I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask
Won’t you try to help me?

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows
Interrupted

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows
Interrupted

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows
Interrupted

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows

Why don’t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer?
And decide the words I say?
‘Cause I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask
Won’t you try to help me?

Why don’t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don’t you be the writer?
And decide the words I say?
‘Cause I’d rather pretend
I’ll still be there at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask
Won’t you try to help me?

 

B-U-S-T-E-D Concert THIS Tuesday!

Totally epic, totally epic!

This makes up for the three years when I couldn’t go to gigs due to uncontrollable panic attacks. It’s actually a standing area at the front so bodies all huddled up together. Hopefully I’ll be okay and excitement will outrun anxiety! I do wish I was going with my high school best friend but oh well… AND it’s a Meet & Greet. #Slaying

 

 

#Contradiction

I’m still dancing
Now we’re burning
The heat was rising
And now we’re breathing more and more

Can you see me now
Can you hear me shout
When I’m dancing through the fear

Will you catch my fall
Do you know me at all
It’s like you never notice me
It’s like you never notice me

And I’m still trying
I’m not tired just yet
My eyes are drying
I never dream that you forget

Can you see me now
Can you hear me shout
When I’m dancing through the fear

Will you catch my fall
Do you know me at all
It’s like you never notice me
It’s like you never notice me

In my room there was doubt
Now no words can come out
We were friends, we had heat
Now I choke when you speak
Because you never notice me
Because you never notice me

Can you see me now
Can you hear me shout
When I’m dancing through the fear

Will you catch my fall
Do you know me at all
It’s like you never notice me
It’s like you never notice me

Notice me

Fate turns cruel you’re on your knees, so desperate for one truth….

 

Remember that blue crystal sky
The sun reflected in your eyes
Kissed me unexpectedly
A moment I just can’t forget
We filled the air with promises
Took them up so tenderly
But life never asks you what you want
It’s just gonna have its way
Sometimes it doesn’t give like it takes

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
And tomorrow never happens, baby
If the world comes tumbling down
And crumbles all around us
Fate turns cruel
You’re on your knees
So desperate for one truth
Know that I have loved you

Don’t think I’ll write another letter
Or watch another pink sunset
Without thinking about you
I take a walk along the blue seaside
How will I sleep at night
How will I wipe the tears from your eyes

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
And tomorrow never happens, baby
If the world comes tumbling down
And crumbles all around us
Fate turns cruel
You’re on your knees
So desperate for one truth
Know that I have loved you

Without a single hesitation
Without thought or reservation
Baby, I’ll be waiting
Even if I never see your face
And wings take you away from me
And tomorrow never happens, baby
If the world comes tumbling down
And crumbles all around us
Fate turns cruel
You’re on your knees
So desperate for one truth
Know that I have loved you

I have loved you

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
With all my heart and all my soul
The world comes tumbling down
And crumbling all around
I have loved you

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
I have loved you….

♫🎶 🔊 🎧 Good Charlotte “The Anthem” 🎧 🔊 🎶♫

“The Anthem”

It’s a new day, but it all feels old
It’s a good life, that’s what I’m told
But everything, it all just feels the same

At my high school, it felt more to me
Like a jail cell, a penitentiary
My time spent there only made me see

That I don’t ever wanna be like you
I don’t wanna do the things you do
I’m never gonna hear the words you say
And I don’t ever wanna

I don’t ever wanna be you
Don’t wanna be just like you
What I’m sayin’ is, this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
You, don’t wanna be you

Go to college, a university
Get a real job, that’s what they said to me
But I could never live the way they want

I’m gonna get by and just do my time
Out of step, while they all get in line
I’m just a minor threat, so pay no mind

Do you really wanna be like them
Do you really wanna be another trend
Do you wanna be part of their drill
‘Cause I don’t ever wanna

I don’t ever wanna be you
Don’t wanna be just like you
What I’m sayin’ is, this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
You, don’t wanna be you

Shake it once, that’s fine
Shake it twice, that’s okay
Shake it three times, you’re playing with yourself again

You, don’t wanna be just like you
What I’m sayin’ is, this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
Y’all got to feel me, sing if you’re with me

You, don’t wanna be just like you (be just like you)
This is the anthem throw all your hands up
Y’all got to feel me, sing if you’re with me

Another loser anthem (whoa)
Another loser anthem (whoa)
Another loser anthem (whoa)
Another loser anthem
