“If we were flowers we would worship the sun…”


Aproveito a ocasião para enfatizar o quão bacana acho o projeto Flor Gentil (http://www.florgentil.com.br/) – se/quando puderem doar, favor fazê-lo, parece uma coisa meio bobinha mas acreditem, faz diferença. Flower power, babyyy!!!! 😉

Black roses are truly a thing of beauty. They can express a variety of meanings, and have deep symbolism due to their dark, mysterious color. They are commonly associated with black magic, anarchy, and witchcraft. However, they can also be used to convey rebirth or to express profound love (due to their rarity). Unfortunately, true black roses do not occur in nature. This is probably because no bee would want to fly into a black rose. Kidding! Ok, I honestly don’t know why we don’t have black roses. Regardless, there are some great alternatives out there:

True Black Roses

These are made by injecting black dye it the stem of a (typically) red rose.  The tint will not rub off the petal, however if a stem or petal is cut it can stain clothes, so be careful using them at formal events.  These are the closest thing to a truly black rose.

Baccara Black Rose

These are the closest you will get to a natural black rose.  They are darkest before they bloom, and open to a deep dark red color, with hints of dark blue.  A burgondy/blackberry/blueberry mix of colors, if you will.  They look deceptively black, especially when viewed under low light.  Baccara roses are unique in that they don’t have a flowery smell.  However, the gene that gives roses their botanical smell also takes away from their shelf life.  Because of this, Baccara roses will last a very long time in a vase.

Black Magic Rose

Black Magic roses are another natural rose of the hybrid tea variety.  They have a deep, velvety red color and are highly sought after for weddings and bridal showers.  Not quite as black as the Baccara but still extremely beautiful.

When to Give a Black Rose?

Black roses can be great for Halloween or other types of scary parties. They can also go well with black tie events, as a gift to someone interested in Gothic culture, or even to someone whose favorite color is black. A great way to give black roses is to mix them in with other colors, that way the black will contrast nicely with the lighter, more flowery colors. No matter what the occasion, black roses will be sure to make a beautiful and interesting gift.

 

In the presence of (Yes)

Deeper than every ocean
Deeper than every river
That’s what your presence brings to me

Revealing the words I listen
Seeing you in my silence
Learning I’m with you constantly
As I was before

If we were flowers
We would worship the sun
So why not now?
This high is shining brightly
Brighter than before

As the door was open wide
There inside was a diamond chair
Where I sat when I was young
I wrote down the words

Only when the young at heart
Can enter the real world
This chance I’ve waited for
For you to see

If I had chances I would spend them with you
To hold you close and let your love surround me
Deeper than before

(Deeper than every ocean)
And I know this love is real
(Deeper than every river)
Realize this is meant to be
That’s what your eyes they say to me
You are listening to how I feel
So expectedly
(Brighter than every morning)
From the ocean to the sky
(Beautiful as the sunset)
Every river to the sea
Nature surrounds me constantly
We can hear love constantly
This is for you and me

Turn around and come deeper now
So what happens when I touch you there
You feel the words roll over you
Thinking of the better scenes
The memories
As everybody else just
Hasn’t got the time
To help you anymore

‘Cause if the reason for
The things that pleasure us
To please ourselves
Not pressure us
To give our ego
Some pleasure time

Can you imagine
Any reason
To know you’re only fooling yourself
And then you’ll understand why
You’ll understand why

So if we choose to realize
All existence is a dream
This perfect resume to you
From me

Just had a tough time with magic
The death of ego
The moon
It was just coming through

Send me such a good time
In a letter form, tell me
The pleasure, no pressure
Pure imagination in a metaphoric dream

I get amazed like a true beginner
I get amazed like a true believer
I get amazed when I see you there
And I come alive

I believe I’m a true beginner
I believe I’m a true beginner
In your arms I can see it all
I can see it all

If we were flowers
We would worship the sun
So why not now?
This light is burning brightly
This light is burning brightly
Brighter than before
Brighter than before
Brighter than before
Brighter than before

Turn around and remember that
When it gets so low
As you finally hit the ground

Turn around and remember that
Now I’m standing tall
Standing on my sacred ground

Turn around and remember that
When it gets so low
As you finally hit the ground

Turn around and remember that
Now you’re standing tall
Standing on sacred ground
Standing on sacred ground
Standing on sacred ground

Tempus fugit


“Sed fugit interea, fugit irreparabile tempus”

Dies iræ, dies illa,

Solvet sæclum in favilla”

…e lá se vão as últimas horas de 2011…

Não tem como não lembrar dessas músicas, ou me identificar com elas todos os anos:

Lost in the sky
Clouds roll by
and I roll with them
Arrows fly
Seas increase
and then fall again

This world is spinning around me
This world is spinning without me
Every day sends future to past
Every breath leaves me one less
to my last

Watch the sparrow falling
Gives new meaning to it all
If not today nor yet tomorrow
then some other day

I’ll take seven lives for one
And then my only father’s son
As sure as I did ever love him
I am not afraid

This world is spinning around me
The whole world keeps
spinning around me
All life is future to past
Every breath leaves me one less
to my last

Pull me under Pull me under
Pull me under I’m not afraid
All that I feel is honor and spite
All I can do is set it right

Dust fills my eyes
Clouds roll by
and I roll with them
Centuries cry
Orders fly
and I fall again

This world is spinning inside me
The whole world is
spinning inside of me
Every day sends future to past
Every step brings me closer
to my last

Pull me under Pull me under
Pull me under I’m not afraid
Living my life too much in
the sun
Only until your will is done

Walking down the path that leads me to my memories
Pacing all the way without a care in my stride
Where are the friends of my yesterday
have they moved on with their lives
Can we still laugh and joke about things like before

There’s no need to hide the past that I have left behind
It’s a good resource somewhere for me to find
Why am I waiting for someone to reach out
it shouldn’t be all up to them
keeping in touch ain’t that easy but I’ll have to try

Where have all the years gone
that’s what I am asking now
What have I learned so far
tell me Father Time – tell me now

Now I understand I’ll take from time what I need
And I store it inside it’s there for me to find
I can’t deny that the years will pass by
but it won’t bother me
‘Cause now I will set out to realize my dream

Where have all the years gone
that’s what I am asking now
What have I learned so far
tell me Father Time – tell me now

Taste the poison, feel that this is life
Hallowed be the game of life and innocence
God’s waiting for him, join us at the road to fate
There are no two paths, feel the pain
Which steps into his lifeAgony, he’ll be crucified
Death awaits knocking at his door
Agony, leave him
The clock will strike the end
Hell or heaven, reflect and fade awayAshes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
Like a candle light that fades
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
When the life clock strikes you will obey

Time isn’t here to stay
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
A light shows the right way

Morning is whispering in my head
Too late to say goodbye
Too late, the last breath’s done
Deliverance at all, he’s born to find this end

I am the one, the one who’s calling
Obey my call to the cemetery
And don’t be afraid to step into the dark
Be sure that my voice will take you home

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
Like a candle light that fades
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
When the life clock strikes you will obey
Time isn’t here to stay

No hope he’d waited so long
This can’t be God’s will
He surrendered long ago
There was no real chance

Ashes to ashes and dust will be dust
Ashes to ashes, you all will be dust again

The clock had struck the end
Up to heaven
Reflexions fade away

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The life clock strikes and you obey
Like a candle light that fades
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
When the life clock strikes you will obey

Time isn’t here to stay
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
the life clock strikes and you obey
A light shows the right way

Taste the poison
Feel that this is life
Hallowed be the game

I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath,
Before I start off again
Driven on,
Without a moment to spend
To pass an evening
With a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin
I’d like to pause,
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim
Who learns to transcend
Learns to live
As if each step was the end

Time stand still
I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
Time stand still
See more of the people
And the places that surround me now
Time stand still

Freeze this moment
A little bit longer
Make each sensation
A little bit stronger
Experience slips away…
Experience slips away…
Time stand still

I turn my face to the sun
I close my eyes
I let my defenses down
All those wounds
That I can’t get unwound

I let my past go too fast
No time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain,
Whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around

Time stand still
I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
Time stand still
See more of the people
And the places that surround me
Now

Freeze this moment
A little bit longer
Make each sensation
A little bit stronger

Make each impression
A little bit stronger
Freeze this motion
A little bit longer

The innocence slips away…
The innocence slips away…
Time stand still
Time stand still

I’m not looking back
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people
And the places that surround me now
Time stand still

Summer’s going fast
The nights growing colder
Children growing up
Old friends growing older

Freeze this moment
A little bit longer
Make each sensation
A little bit stronger
Experience slips away…
Experience slips away…
The innocence slips away…
