turn me on

Turn Me On (lyrics by John D. Loudermilk/ sung by Norah Jones)

Like a flower waiting to bloom
Like a lightbulb in a dark room
I'm just sitting here waiting for you
To come home and turn me on

Like the desert waiting for the rain
Like a school kid waiting for the spring
I'm just sitting here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on

My poor heart, it's been so dark since you been gone
After all, you're the one who turns me off
You're the only one who can turn me back on

My hi-fi's waiting for a new tune
The glass is waiting for some fresh ice cubes
I'm just sitting here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on
Turn me on

I was just listening to this song and I love the lyrics.
I especially like how it's compared to a light switch.
And it's true, isn't it? We all have someone(or many) in our life
who can bring out the light in us. We are lucky.

what's the point
of all this pointless proximity
if you won't talk
take me for a walk
through a little story

all these years
have made me sick to tears
of such mysteries
why should i keep you
if you won't keep me

til i get to know you
i ain't gonna show you nothing wordlessly
what you think this is?
you think that that grin
gonna get you in where you wanna be?

do i have to stand under your little cloud
just to get near you
baby can't you help this little girl
not to fear you

why don't you just talk
take me for a walk
through a little story
and tell me
why should i keep you
if you won't keep me

before you speak

I got this in an email today. Liked it very much :)

"Before you speak, ask yourself,
is it kind, is it necessary, is it true,
does it improve on the silence?"

looking for sugar

When you come looking for sugar,
your bag will be examined
to see how much it can hold;
it will be filled accordingly.”
