Another lyric I like is:

Chloe just like me, only beautiful

Simple but I love that. Insert any name in there and that sums up how I feel most of the time.

I love my signature also

"Wanna show ya somethin like the joy inside my heart... Seems i've been living in the temple of the dog..."


and

"I wanna tell you that I love you... But does it really matter? I just can't stand to see you draggin on away..."

Andy was an awesome lyricist! for sure!

Ugly morning
She Jezebel's daughter
She like a Brunhilda
A child of the water.

Bone China, my friends
Bone China, let the summer come again,
Come again I said

She be dancing by the moonlit sky (I'm talking to you)

She be moving like a butterfly (sting like a bee)

She be shakin like the girl from Shine

Genius, if we had danced in our wedding, this was the song for it.

Chloe don't know better
Chloe's just like me, only beautiful
A couple of years difference (Her trouble lovin' is different?)
But those lasses never learn and you know
Chloe danced the tables in the French Quarter
She's always been given so I can't always make her laugh
But I'm proud to say and I won't forget
The time spent laying by her side, oh yeah, yeah
The time spent laying by her side, oh yeah, yeah
Dreams like this must die
And a dream like this must die
Dream like this must...


You ever heard the story of Mr. Faded Glory?
Say he who rides a pony must someday fall
Talkin' to my alter, life is what you make it
And if you make it death well rest your soul away
Away, away, yeah child

It's a broken kind of feeling shed have to tie me to the ceiling
A bad moon's a comin' better say your prayers, child
I wanna tell you that I love you but does it really matter?
I just can't stand to see you dragging down, again
Again, my friend again, oh yeah

So I'm singing
And this is my kinda love
It's the kind that moves on
It's the kind that leaves me alone, yes it does
And this is my kinda love
It's the kind that moves on
It's the kind that leaves me alone

I used to treat you like a lady now you're a substitute teacher
This bottle's not a pretty, not a pretty sight, yeah
I owe the man some money so I'm turnin over honey
See Mr. Faded Glory is once again doin' time, oh yeah

And this is my kinda love
It's the kind that moves on
It's the kind that leaves me alone, yes it does
And this is my kinda love
It's the kind that moves on
It's unkind and it's unkind and
It'll leave me alone, yeah

Like a crown of thorns
It's all who you know, yeah
So don't burn your bridges woman
Cause someday, yeah

Kick it!
And this is my kinda love
It's the kind that moves on
It's the kind that leaves me alone, yeah
And this is my kinda love
It's the kind that moves on
It's unkind and it's the kind that
Baby i said com' on, com' on, com' on,
com' on yeah I said baby don't burn your
bridges woman


I can't put my finger on one thing I love about this, cos I love it as a whole. RIP Andrew Patrick Wood <3 You are missed.
I come from a country of northern lights, lightless days and nightless nights.
I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.
