“Hooked On A Feeling”

I can’t stop this feelin’
Deep inside of me
Girl, you just don’t realize
What you do to me

When you hold me in your arms so tight
You let me know everything’s alright

I’m hooked on a feelin’
High on believin’
That you’re in love with me

Lips are sweet as candy
The taste stays on my mind
Girl, you keep me thirsty
For another cup of wine

I got it bad for you, girl
But I don’t need a cure
I’ll just stay addicted
And hope I can endure

All the good love when we’re all alone
Keep it up girl, yeah you turn me on

I’m hooked on a feelin’
High on believin’
That you’re in love with me

All the good love when we’re all alone
Keep it up girl, yeah you turn me on

I’m hooked on a feelin’
I’m high on believin’
That you’re in love with me

Lyrics by azlyrics.com

On Monday, October 25, looking towards Pulbah Island from Wangi Point I noticed some fins cutting the lake’s surface and managed a few images before it disappeared.

From my position I estimated the length of this shark at 3+ metres and by the look of the shadow under the surface, I think this is a Bull Shark. It wasn’t in a hurry, just cruising the surface with the tail fin flopping around, heading generally towards Dora Ck.

It was a good (and grim) reminder that we share the lake with some creatures that can be very unfriendly.

Below is a link to details of a shark attack in January of this year. The victim survived but sustained serious arm injuries.

Words for today: Sharks – they live in the lake and creeks.

Under Pressure – Queen and David Bowie 1981

Pressure; pushing down on me, pressing down on you…….

Word for today; Pressure – the influence or effect of someone or something

“Under Pressure”

Pressure: pushing down on me,
Pressing down on you, no man ask for.
Under pressure that burns a building down,
Splits a family in two,
Puts people on streets.

That’s OK.

That’s the terror of knowing
What this world is about.
Watching some good friends screaming,
“Let me out!”

Tomorrow gets me higher.
Pressure on people, people on streets.

OK.

Chippin’ around, kick my brains ’round the floor.
These are the days: it never rains but it pours.

People on streets.
People on streets.

It’s the terror of knowing
What this world is about.
Watching some good friends screaming,
“Let me out!”

Tomorrow gets me higher, higher, high!
Pressure on people, people on streets.

Turned away from it all like a blind man.
Sat on a fence, but it don’t work.
Keep coming up with love, but it’s so slashed and torn.

Why, why, why!?

Love, love, love, love, love.

Insanity laughs under pressure.
We’re breaking.

Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can’t we give love that one more chance?
Why can’t we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?

‘Cause love’s such an old-fashioned word,
And love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the night,
And love dares you to change our way of caring about ourselves.
This is our last dance.
This is our last dance.
This is ourselves.

Under pressure.
Under pressure.
Pressure

Too Many Times – Mental As Anything, 1981

Here’s an old favourite, with lyrics that will always get the nod.

‘No matter what I do since we broke up….’

Words for today; I find it hard to sleep

More to come; same blog time, same blog channel – lyrics below

Lyrics

Too many times, too many times
Too many times, too many times

Too many times I’ve seen the sun come up
Through bloodshot eyes this week
No matter what I do since we broke up
I find it hard to sleep

The room is spinning from too many drinks
I’ve drunken by myself
I know that staying here and drinking beer
Is no good for my health

What is there left to do
But to drink and watch the view
I think that it might rain this afternoon

Too many times, too many times
Too many times, too many times

The doctor that I went to couldn’t do any good
He gave me pills for sleeping
I took more than I should, than I should

Too many times I’ve seen the sun come up
Through bloodshot eyes this week
No matter what I do since we broke up
I find it hard to sleep

What is there left to do
But to drink and watch the view
I think that it might rain this afternoon

Too many times, too many times
Too many times, too many times
Too many times, too many times
Too many times, too many times
Too many times, too many times
Too many times, too many times

I Fought the Law

The Crickets

Breakin rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and a good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I left my baby and I feels so bad
I Guess my race is run
Shes the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robbin people with a zip-gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I needed money ’cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I left my baby and I feel so bad
Guess my race is run
She’s the best girl that I’ve ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’

The Righteous Brothers

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You’re trying hard not to show it (baby)
But baby, baby I know it…

You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone… gone… gone… woooooo…

Now there’s no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And now your’re starting to critisize little things I do
It makes me just feel like crying (baby)
‘Cause baby, somethin’ beautiful’s dyin’

You lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone… gone… gone… wooooo…

Baby, baby, I get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah
We had a love… a love… a love you don’t find everyday
So don’t… don’t… don’t… don’t let it slip away

Baby (baby), baby (baby)
I beg you please(please…)please(please…)
I need your love (I need your love), I need your love (I need your love)
So bring it on back (So bring it on back), Bring it on back (so bring it on back)
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’

Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone… gone… gone
And I can’t go on
Woooo…
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone… gone…
