this song that has touched me deeper than any song in quite some time... i just saw the video for the first time today, it made me smile after the song made me cry... i had to smile when i saw the furries walking with the models...
it's by the flaming lips... and i dedicate it to everyone out there... in this SL world of beauty, it's easy to miss the message and truth of this song...
i hope you take the time to watch it, and share it with your loved ones...
do you realize that you have the most beautiful face?
do you realize, we're floating in space?
do you realize, that happiness makes you cry?
do you realize, that every one you know some day will die?
and instead of saying all of your goodbyes,
let them know you realize that life goes fast,
it's hard to make the good things last,
you realize the sun doesn't go down,
it's just an illusion caused by the world spinning 'round...
as a songwriter in RL, this is the kind when you hear it, you wish you would have written it... can't explain why, more than cuz it's good, but because of the gift it is..
listening to it brings to mind so many of your beautiful faces, so many of you who have touched my life through your little cartoon avi's, i'd make a list of you all, but there isn't enough space... i wish i could though so you'd know, it's not the the ones you think are "famous" and "known" and "all that", yes them too, but just as much... it's those of you i've met but once.
