"I have favorite words and you've got a gold-plated paradox."

"Yes, you heard me right. She wants to drink the water from the pack on the right track."

"I may introduce a limited run of a woman's psyche, for their insight into the King's palace. Who can she be?"

"On the heels of Cheney's praise, I'm starting to come out next month."

"I'm only one third of five hundred, of a different plane."

There is a point where you just have to throw up your hands and run screaming from the room . . .

[Current Mood |indescribable]

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with
