Lyric of the Day: Stephen Schwartz

Like a ship blown from its mooring by a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a sky bird in a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you,
I have been changed for good

-Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel, For Good

Favorite song from the musical, Wicked?

Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart

Lyric of the Day: Mary Schmich

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can
Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it,

because the older you get,
the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Don’t mess too much with your hair,
or by the time you’re 40, it will look 85.

-Baz Luhrmann, Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen) :

behind the rings on their fingers
imprints the ink deep in the inner
that has stained their souls together now
stained soul mates forever now

Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch ’em roll away again
