Part of your world

'Bright young women
Ready to stand

Ready to know
What the people know

Ask them my questions
And get some answers

When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love?

Love to explore
That shore up above

Wandering free

Wish I could be
Part of your world'

~Ariel, 1989. (C) Disney

'I can't do the talk 
like they talk on the TV
And I can't do a love song
like the way it's meant to be
I can't do everything
but I'd do anything for you
I can't do anything
except be in love with you

And all I do is miss you
and the way we used to be
All I do is keep the beat
and bad company
All I do is kiss you
through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet, I'd do the stars with you
any time'

Lyrics by Mark Knopfler

Indelicate words

The opening scene and theme
Of Four Weddings and a Funeral
Say the most indelicate word
In such a proper way

To convey intense feelings
For somebody or thing
Fear of missing out on love
The act of not giving in

Perhaps this word invades my mind
In such a proper way of late
Simply because frustration of
No other words to say

When someone has captured completely
All senses pervading with
The delight in submitting willingly
To the plight of love's great gift
