Title: Dream Of You (Free Schiller Mix)

The dream I had of you

The dream I had of you (several times)

I´ve been here all the time
you saw the sign, i´m doing right
I´ve always waited for the moment
that you would come trough my door
but this brougt loneliness so far
I lay my hand on to my heart
is this the life i want to live?
is this the dream i had of you?

You Were A Jaguar

A shapeshifter that understands the patterns of chaos.
You are powerful and move without fear in dark places.

Putting the songs Chained to You and Gunning Down Romance together, played repeatedly one after the other just in that order, is a very stalker-inspiring song... a Stalker/murder story inspiration.

Both songs thanks to Savage Garden.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let me share something funny with you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
1. My username is othercolor because I used to have another journal name and stopped using it when I realized that I had, for the duration of the journal's lifetime, misrepresented myself. I had "colored" myself a certain way, and then realized I was this other color entirely.

2. My journal is titled Colour Unspecified because I feel that life is defined in absolutes. The old adage of 'black and white', 'evil vs good' seems so controlling and negative. I don't view myself as fitting into the societal molds and therefore I am an unidentified quantity, socially speaking. I like it that way.

3. My subtitle is No Definitions Binding Me for the same reason my journal is titled Colour Unspecified. See #2.

4. My friends page is called 'The Masses' because some people I will know well, and some I will live with and someone I will think about fondly and likely some will spend at least a small amount of time being HATED for one reason or another... just a mass of ecclectic interests and associations.

5. My default userpic is other color because it is a very pretty, androgynous image, and sometimes I lean more towards a masculine identity and sometimes more towards a feminine identity, but I always feel "pretty".
 
 
 
 
 
 
How many times have you been pushed around?
Was anybody there?
Does anybody care?
How many time have your friends let you down?
Was anybody there?
Did anybody stare?

How many time have your friends let you down?
Just open up your heart
Just open up your mind
How many times has your faith slipped away?
Well, is anybody safe?
Does anybody pray?

Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive

How many days have you just slept away?
Is everybody high?
Is everyone afraid?
How many times have you wished you were strong?
Have they ever seen your heart?
Have they ever seen your pain?

Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive

She gets high
She gets lost
She gets drowned by the cost
Twice a day, every week, not a lie

She gets high
She gets lost
She gets drowned by the cost
Twice a day, every week, not a lie

Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive
All messed up, but we'll survive

-2 cups boiling water
-2 (4-ounce) skinless salmon fillets, cut into 1-inch cubes
-1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
-2-inch piece peeled ginger
-Salt and pepper to taste
-4 tablespoons olive oil
-2 cloves garlic, chopped

Add the salmon chunks, salt and pepper, 2 tablespoons chopped scallions, 1 tablespoon butter and 2 tablespoons of the glaze.
