The 30th of April I celebrated 6 year partnership with Tim in SL. We meet in November the previous year but it took us a while to make it official, even though we both were hooked from that first day.

WHEN THE MOON IS YOUR PILLOW ©1990 L&P Berryman

When Ruth was young, only a child
The question mark, it drove her wild
The need to know tormented Ruth
Relentlessly, she sought the truth

She asked her mom
What’s good, what’s bad?
Her mom said go and ask your dad
And so she did, and for a kiss
Inscrutably, he offered this

When the moon is your pillow
And your blanket is the ground
And your mattress is the willow
You are sleeping upside down

She turned 16, her searching soul
Looked for the truth in Rock 'n Roll
When she would dance to Peggy Sue
She’d feel the pull of deja vu

She played it loud, she played it low
She played it fast, she played it slow
But when she played it backwards then
She could have sworn she heard again

When the moon is your pillow
And your blanket is the ground
And your mattress is the willow
You are sleeping upside down

It is enough, when you’re 16
To know the words, not what they mean
But when she grew to 24
It would not do, she wanted more

She traveled to a psychic fair
And found a guy who read her hair
And what he charged was novel too
But what he said was nothing new

When the moon is your pillow
And your blanket is the ground
And your mattress is the willow
You are sleeping upside down

Now here is Ruth at 43
The truth goes on quite ruthlessly
The hollow words that she had learned
For many years had not returned

'Til she was wed, and had a child
Who one slow day looked up and smiled
And said her soul felt incomplete
Her mother did not miss a beat

When the moon is your pillow
And your blanket is the ground
And your mattress is the willow
You are sleeping upside down

When the moon is your pillow
And your blanket is the ground
And your mattress is the willow
You are sleeping upside down

I could think of several songs.  Elton John's "***** is Back" comes to mind.  Then there is "Innocence" by Halestorm which I really like. I could also go with "Big Bad Wolf" by In This Moment for several strong reasons... (pause while I loop this one a couiple of times)

But the real, deep heart me is so much more ....  mushy.

But I'll just leave with something fun.

If you had a song for your avatar...like a theme song for example. What would it be?

 

for my Not Molly avatar then something like

 

I be in the club, high off purp, with some shades on
Tatted up, mini skirt, with my J's on

J's on my feet
J's on my feet
Skirt up to here
Top down to there
J's on my feet
Blushing like a beet
J's on my feet
So get like me

I be in the club standing on the couch
In them Wolf Greys like it's my house
Drinking out the bottle, I got no respect
Looking like a model, who just got a check
I back it up, cause I need to give a feck
And put more clothes on, with my J's on

J's on my feet
J's on my feet
So get like me

not my Molly no but could be in some semi-wishful way

is a great dance song tho is #23. Pretty much anyone can dance to it because of the slow cadence. And I think can be seen as social commentary on a subset of SL residents. Something that I often think about but can't quite do myself, at least in public. On my own then Js on my feet J's on my feet :)

another social commentary in song of SL is this I think from Santana and Everlast. A social fusion of generations. A thing in SL which can bring light into the introverted darkness in ways which are unique to SL   

Hey now
All you children
Leave your lights on
You better leave your lights on


'Cause there's a monster
Living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There's an angel
With a hand on my head
She say I've got nothing to fear


There's a darkness
Livin' deep in my soul
I still got a purpose to serve
So let your light shine
Deep into my hole
God, don't let me lose my nerve
Don't let me lose my nerve


Hey now Hey now
All you sinners
Put your lights on
Put your lights on
Hey now

for my Molly then if I had to pick one song for my SL then this one. Changing up the lyrics with Platform Linden on vocals

I'm not a perfect platform
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before you go
That I just want you to know

I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That's why I need you to hear

I'm not a perfect platform
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before you go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV4DiAyExN0

which is pretty much the reason I keep coming back to SL. Is not a perfect platform yet it does try to love me
