Misery Made Beautiful




Make me a witness
Take me out
Out of darkness
Out of doubt
I won't weigh you down
With good intention
Won't make fire out of clay
Or other inventions
Will we burn in heaven
Like we do down here?
Will the change come while we're waiting?
Everyone is waiting
And when we're done
Soul searching
And we carried the weight
And died for a cause
Is misery made beautiful
Right before our eyes
Mercy will be revealed
Or blind us where we stand
Will we burn in heaven
Like we do down here
Will the change come while we're waiting?
Everyone is waiting
Will we burn in heaven
Like we do down here?
Will the change come while we're waiting?
Everyone is waiting.

Didn't I Do It For You?




Didn't I do it for you?
Why don't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?

They want to see us, want to see us alone
They want to see us, want to see us apart
They want to see us, want to see us alone
They want to see us, want to see us apart
And I, just want to feel you're there

And I don't want to have to share our love
I try, but I get overwhelmed
When you're gone I have no one to tell
And I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try but I get overwhelmed
All wrapped in cellophane, the feelings that we had

And didn't I do it for you?
Why don't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?
And didn't I do it for you?
Why won't I do it for you?
Why won't you do it for me?
When all I do is for you?

But I, just want to feel you're there
And I don't want to have to share our love
I try but I get overwhelmed
When you're gone, I have no one to tell

They're waiting
They're watching
They're watching us
They're hating
They're waiting
And hoping
I'm not enough.

I Can Feel The Magic Floating In The Air

Our moments together...




I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way
I watch the sunlight dance across your face
And I've never been this swept away

All my thoughts just seem to settle on the breeze
When I'm lying wrapped up in your arms
The whole world just fades away
The only thing I hear
Is the beating of your heart

'Cause I can feel you breathe
It's washing over me
And suddenly, I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be?
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

In a way, I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumbling down
Closer than I've ever felt before
And I know, and you know
There's no need for words right now

'Cause I can feel you breathe
Washing over me
And suddenly, I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove
Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in the touch
The slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be?
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

Caught up in the touch
Slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be?
I can feel you breathe

Just breathe
I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way

There's Something Inside You




I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel
I'm gonna drive you through the night
Down the hills
I'm gonna tell you something
You don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dumped
But have no fear
There's something inside you
And it's hard to explain
They're talking about you, boy
But you're still the same.

I Thought That I Was Special




I thought that I was special
You made me feel
Like it was my fault, you were the devil
Lost your appeal
Does it keep you in control? (In control)
For you to keep her in a cage?
And you swear you didn't know (Didn't know)
You said you thought she was your age.

How dare you?
And how could you?

Hello Beautiful World!
Today I suddenly realized that I am not really good at taking pictures at locations/outdoors.
I am so used to using my dark background that now I can't seem to be able to break free
from the routine.

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. 
It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
― Albert Einstein

I keep thinking why change/fix something that is not broken, right?
But we should always aim to improve in life, to learn new things,
to become better in everything we do and never to fear change...

“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone 
that you begin to change, grow, and transform.”
― Roy T. Bennett

So for today, I stepped outside of my routine (the expected) and took a few pictures
that brought me joy and made me smile. And that my friends, that's what life is about!

Much Love,
Lori Novo

A Million Tomorrows




Baby I, I, I, I've been runnin' on stardust
Alone for so long
I wouldn't know what hot fire was
Hot fire, hot weather, hot coffee, I'm better with you
It's strange, but it's true, darling

Not to turn into a wildfire
To light up your night
With only my smile and nothing that burns
Baby, I'll be like a wildflower
I live on sheer willpower
I'll do my best never to turn into something
That burns, burns, burns
Like the others baby, burns, burns, burns

Steppenwolf (steppen.crescendo): let's go home so i can kiss all these curvy spots

Dusted Memories


I just woke up from a dream I was having...

I looked around and everything was exactly as I remember it from my childhood.
The old shoe boxes where my grandma would keep nick-nacks that to me were like treasures,
a thimble, variety color thread spools, buttons, a scarf, prayer cards of saints and virgins,
pieces of lace, etc.
All just as how it was when I lived with my maternal grandmother back in Mexico.

The embroidery pillowcases that my mother had made for us with the two little bluebirds 
kissing surrounded by tiny colorful flowers... red, pink, yellow, every beautiful color she had
probably used from her embroidery floss collection.
The pillowcases on the pillows nicely sat on the bed that I shared with my grandmother...

"buelita, buelita, I am still so cold!"
I used to tell my grandma every single winter night after she would tuck me in bed covering my
little body with the three warm blankets that we had.
"Be patient, you'll get warm soon." she would always tell me, and you know what?
she was always right.

Soon after I would fall asleep feeling so warm under the blankets 
in our one-bedroom home that felt just as cold as the outside.

As a child, I suffered from leg cramps from an illness that I suffered at six months old.
 These cramps were so painful that often I would wake up screaming and crying in pain.
My grandma would make little crosses on my legs while she prayed so they would go away.
Sometimes they would stop within a minute or two, other times it would take longer, much-much
longer. I always noticed my grandmother getting teary eyes every time this would happen and it would
make me wonder if she was feeling the pain too, now I know she was, 
seeing me suffer must have been so hard for her.

But back to my dream.
Everything was in place, down to the smallest of things.
However, most of the things were covered in dust and debris.
It looked as if our house had been torn down and the wall pieces were scattered all over, but that wasn't
the case. The brick walls still stood up.

I stretched my left arm and gently touched the things in the room as I walked around looking at
everything. I was smiling and crying. I was feeling happy and sad.

All these things that once were my grandmothers and my treasures now looked old and
abandoned. My grandmother was long gone and I had grown up and had never returned to our little home. 
Suddenly a great feeling of wanting to rescue them overcame me. I wanted to take as many of
our beautiful treasures with me. However, I just couldn't bring myself to take anything. I felt I needed
to leave everything as it was, just how my grandmother had left it.

I slowly made my way to the yellow wooden chair where my grandma used to sit and sat down.
From there, as tears rolled down my cheeks I continued to watch in silence the little home where
we had shared so many beautiful memories together, now lonely and covered in dust.

Thanks For Reading!
Much Love,
Lori Novo

Watching You Go




Standing on the platform
Watching you go
It's like no other pain
I've ever known

To love someone so much
To have no control
You said, "I want to see the world"
And I said, "Go"

But I think I'm lost without you
I just feel crushed without you
I've been strong for so long
That I never thought how much I needed you
I think I'm lost without you

Strangers rushing past
Just trying to get home
But you were the only
Safe haven that I've known

Hits me at full speed
Feel like I can't breathe
And nobody knows
This pain inside me
My world is crumbling
I should never have
Let you go

I think I'm lost without you
I think I'm lost, lost, lost
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

I think I'm lost without you, you
I just feel crushed without you
'Cause I've been strong for so long
That I never thought how much I love you

Standing on the platform
Watching you go
You said, "I wanna see the world"
And I said, "Go"
