Its you its you all for you. Leona Lewis

Sister Hazel

its you its you all for you

This obscure Livejournal account, and the languid, passive, and beauty-obsessed writer, was the first thing I thought of when I first heard Lana Del Rey. And this is where Lana Del Rey gets weird. It makes sense, then, that these characters would also court death—what will they have after their beauty, youth, and desirability fade? She is the poster child for dark, death-obsessed, objectified femininity, and her persona feels dangerous because it is—representative of the edge that contemporary women are often flirting with and pushing against and, sometimes, going over. Oh, I bottled up and trip and fall, Wonderin' if i'm blind. Rain comes pouring down, Pouring down. Her songs both acknowledge and welcome the dangers of chasing away a deadening sadness by taking too many drugs, driving too fast, and burning out while still glamorous.

First, a little story: I used to be an obsessive user of Livejournal. Falling from blue skies, Falling from blue skies. It is also damaging, obviously, to not be seen as fully human. Now you're love is gone and you're the only one No you didn't stay, how could you walk away? It's hard to say what it is, I see in you. As a popular-science blogger, I need to be sure of every aspect of my writing to meet inquiring minds with quality information and maintain their interest until the conclusion of the report. Her characters welcome this, though.

Words can't say it, And I can't do, Enough to prove, It's all for you. And so it lingers, a shadow femininity, one that women are both attracted to and repelled by.

its you its you all for you

I just can't turn and walk away. Lana Del Rey, too, feels like a culturally-created specter, her presence more an exorcism than a rehashing of old stereotypes. And I thought i'd seen it all, 'Cause it's been a long, long time. Every lyric is about performing for someone. Oh, Now, I'll never turn about, Maybe 'cause i'm tryin' There's been time, I'm so confused.

its you its you all for you

I neither drank nor smoked, and lived miles and miles away from beaches. Her songs reference Walt Whitman and Nabokov as well as hip-hop, classic films, and doomed icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Elvis. But back to that Livejournal account. It's better than I ever even knew They say that the world was built for two Only worth living if somebody is loving you Baby now you do Now you do It's you, it's you, it's all for you Everything I do I tell you all the time Heaven is a place on earth with you Tell me all the things you want to do I heard that you like the bad girls Honey, is that true? Barlow acts as the lead singer and primary songwriter. Yeah, It's hard to say-ay-hay.

THE SCHIZOFRENIKS

its you its you all for you

There's been time, I'm so confused. Words without a sound, Comin' from your eyes. Now you're love is gone and you're the only one. Her chapbooks include You aren't in this movie dancing girl press and Splice Blue Hour Press. She claimed to be a seventeen-year-old American girl who had been swept away from a boring suburban life and plunged into a life of cocktails at noon, constant sunshine, and parties for which she was carefully dressed by maids and trotted around to impress fellow rich men and dignitaries.

It's You, It's You. It's All For You

its you its you all for you

I wonder, sometimes, if I made it up myself, if it was some kind of shadow side of my own life at the time. I posted long, personal entries, often accompanied by photographs I wanted to be a photographer—I became a poet instead. Words can't say it, I can't do, Enough to prove, It's all for you. Now, I'll never turn about, Maybe 'cause i'm tryin' There's been time, I'm so confused. It's better than I ever even knew They say that the world was built for two Only worth living if somebody is loving you Baby now you do Singing in the old bars Swinging with the old stars Living for the fame Kissing in the blue dark Playing pool and wild darts Video games He holds me in his big arms Drunk and I am seeing stars This is all I think of Watching all our friends fall In and out of Old Paul's This is my idea of fun Playing video games It's you, it's you, it's all for you Everything I do I tell you all the time Heaven is a place on earth with you Tell me all the things you want to do I heard that you like the bad girls Honey, is that true? Finally I figured out, But it took a long, long time. It's better than I ever even knew They say that the world was built for two Only worth living if somebody is loving you Baby now you do Cacao.

There will be no pesky interventions and no limits on what she is allowed to do, as there would be in a mutual relationship. It's all for You It's all for You It's all for You I've the seen the world None of it compares to You I can't deny it, without You I won't make it through, through 'Cause I see You, You see me More than what these people see You looked at the worst in me And still loved me You can change the night to day Make my problems fade away Fixed the mess that I have made What can I say, what can I do To show You that I'm all for You? Wonder if i'll always be with you. Her first full-length poetry collection, One Perfect Bird, is available from Sundress Publications. The world is smiling It's a little brighter There's less politics A little more laughter Wars become silent Everything's different Nothing is hurting And it's all working Look at the courage That's emanating Saving the hearts That were breaking Oh yeah, it's coming To those who are waiting You know that it's true It's all for you The sun and the clouds and the blue It's all for you It's coming in bloom for you Birds are singing Quiet celebration Right through the universe And all across the nation Tied hearts hoping Building what was broken A strength in the community A reason to believe Look at the message It's high and low If you don't listen You'll never know Let go of your chains Oh, come out of your cage The road it's all leading to It's all for you The sun and the clouds and the blue It's all for you It's coming in bloom for you Everyone around you Everyone that's missing 'Til the light can find you No one's gonna know Everyone around you Everyone that needs you No, don't leave us waiting Everyone should know Everyone around you Everyone that's missing 'Til the light can find you No one's gonna know Everyone around you Everyone that needs you No, don't leave us waiting Everyone should know It's all for you It's all for you It's all for you It's waiting here for you It's all for you It's all for you It's all for you It's waiting here for you High in the clouds above You know, you know It's here for you Waiting here for you. There's nothing to hide, there's nothing to prove To show You that I'm all for You I'm all for You, I'm all for You I've spoken many words They've sounded so absurd To think I gave You part of me When all is what You're worth And now I'm standing here Waiting to face all my fears To show You I belong to You And nothing else compares I see You, You see me More than what these people see You looked at the worst in me And still loved me You can change the night to day Make my problems fade away Fixed the mess that I have made What can I say, what can I do To show You that I'm all for You? Internationally the band have had 54 number one hits and 35 number 1 albums. To be frank, it is sometimes exciting to be completely dominated by another person and, sometimes, to be an object, admired as one might admire a painting.
