Oh, you look so tired
Mouth slack and wide
Ill-housed and ill-advised
Your face is as clean
As your life has been, so

Crash into my arms
I want you
You don’t agree
But you don’t refuse
I know you

And I know a place
Where no one is likely to pass
You don’t care if it’s late
And, you don’t care if you’re lost

And oh, you look so tired
But tonight you presume too much
Too much, too much
And if it’s the last thing I ever do
I’m gonna get you

Crash into my arms
I want you
You don’t agree
But you don’t refuse
I know you

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
