Got your message!!! Your mom's favorite? I must be your mom's age!!!!! She influenced you on the alternative music scene? 80's girl...isn't she? The Cure, Smiths, U2, INXS, Depeche mode and love and rockets...all the same genre/era.
My nickname in high school was Queen of death.....(ha)....before Goth/EMO....I was Goth/EMO trendsetter...(ha)!!!!:)
Yet...U2 is my ultimate favorite(since I was 12 years old)....I was "dark" but clean-cut, spiritual and sometimes optimistic!!!:) what a dichotomy... I still behold my gothic roots....even being a surburbian mom !!!!
Thought you'd might enjoy this little tidbit from the master of goth...
Mr. Peter Murphy......He's so cerebral.....he's a genius writer and his lyrics are so profound!!!....
and his top 40 number....which I adore....I love it all!!!!.....:)
and how about a little Daniel Ashe and David J...... more under-rated, PURE Intellectual Genius!!!
This song should have been in NEW MOON....CHECK OUT THOSE LYRICS......
The word that would best describe this feeling would be, 'Haunted'. I touch the clothes you left behind that still retain your shape and lines, still haunted. I trace the outline of your eyes, we're in the mirror hypnotized, I'm haunted. I find a solitary hair gone and still I reminisce, I'm haunted.
Haunted by your soul. Haunted by your hair. Haunted by your clothes. Haunted by your eyes, by your soul, by your hair, by your clothes, by your eyes, by your voice, by your smile, by your mouth, by your soul, by your hair, by your clothes, by your eyes, by your voice, by your smile, by your mouth, by your soul, HAUNTED.
So this is for when you're feeling happy again, and this is for when you feeling sad, and this is for when you feel something. Ohh, when the minutes drag.
