I was lost in paradise
I was washed ashore
I was praying someone
Would walk right through that door
I was hung in effigy
I was flayed alive
I was lost and lonely
And struggling to survive.
Say that you need me
Say that you care
Say you believe in me
Say it, say it, say it
And I’ll be there, oh yeah.
I was baked Alaska
Burning deep inside
I was wondering ’round this earth
Trying to find a place to hide.
I was Mr. Heartache
I was ripped and torn
I was hardly living
Until you came along.
Come on and say it.
Whisper in my ear
Come on.
A ripple of uncertainty
Became a tide of change
That wave became an ocean
Now you’re out of range.
Seen heaven in a rainbow
Many splendid things
None compare, none come close
You’re my everything
Say that you need me
Say that you care
Say you believe in me
Say it, mean it, say it, and mean it
Say it, and mean it, say it
And I’ll be there, oh yeah.

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.
