“Doves” May Cry But They Don’t Die

R.I.P. Prince (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)

I salute his departure with my most favorite song by none other than Prince himself.

In case you want to sing along:

“Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe you’re just too demanding (Maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father, too bold (Ya know he’s too bold)
Maybe you’re just like my mother (Maybe you’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (She’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (Why do we scream, why)
This is what it sounds like

When doves cry
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)

Don’t Cry (Don’t Cry)

When doves cry
When doves cry
When doves cry

When Doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry, doves cry
Don’t cry
Darling don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t don’t cry”

“Like a Comet” by Mr. Universe

Steven Universe fills me with this nostalgia that I haven’t felt in many years. One of their cute little songs on the show is called “Like a Comet” by a young Greg Universe. It happened during a flashback episode about how Greg met Rose Quartz. I’m totally obsessed with Steven Universe as you can see from my previous post, Steven Universe took my breath away . Cartoon Network needs to make more episodes at a much faster pace. I binge watched all the shows in the series so far and I’m just craving more. I wanted to take a short break from my usual depressing poems and check-ins for a change. So enjoy the video and if you wanna sing along, I posted the lyrics below. The One-Eyed Angel has no shame. 

“Like a Comet” lyrics:

Some
Say I have no direction
That I’m a light speed distraction
That’s a knee-jerk reaction

Still
This is the final frontier
Everything is so clear
To my destiny I steer

This life in the stars is all I’ve ever known
Stars and stardust and infinite space is my only home

But the moment that I hit the stage
Thousands of voices are calling my name
And I know in my heart it’s been worth it all of the while

And as my albums fly off of the shelves
Handing out autographed pics of myself
This life I chose isn’t easy
But sure is one heck of a ride

At the moment that I hit the stage
I hear the universe calling my name
And I know deep down in my heart I have nothing to fear

And as the solar wind blows through my hair
Knowing I have so much more left to share
A wandering spirit who’s tearing its way through the cold atmosphere

I fly like a comet
Soar like a comet
Crash like a comet
I’m just a comet
