LYRICS:

Lady Antebellum’s new single “Need You Now.”

Picture perfect memories,
Scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone cause, I cant fight it anymore.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time.

Its a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t come, but I lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey, cant stop looking at the door.
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me it happens all the time.

Its a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk,
And I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now.

Yes I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all.
Its a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn’t call but I’m a little drunk and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now.
I just need you now.
Oh baby I need you now.

FASHION & MUSIC: “Don’t Come Around Here No More” By Tom Petty Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Mikey Batriani

FASHION: A.C. Cheerno. I love this sexy complete outfit from Cheerno. It is very unique with a hint of couture. I’ve never seen an outfit like these anywhere. My favorite part is the feathered neck piece/collar. I also love how Cheerno uses the contrast between the black and white textures that make it POP! This outfit is high drama and surely gets you noticed wherever you go.

Don’t Come Around Here No More

Don’t come around here no more
Don’t come around here no more
Whatever you’re looking for
Hey, don’t come around here no more

I’ve given up, I’ve given up –
I’ve given up on waiting any longer
I’ve given up, on this love getting stronger

I don’t feel you anymore
You darken my door
Whatever you’re looking for
Hey, don’t come around here no more

I’ve given up, I’ve given up
I’ve given up, you tangle my emotions
I’ve given up, honey please admit it’s over

Stop walking down my street
Who do you expect to meet?
Whatever you’re looking for
Hey, don’t come around here no more

LYRICS:
Love Profusion

There are too many questions
There is not one solution
There is no resurrection
There is so much confusion

And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me feel

And the love vibration
You make me feel
You make me shine

There are too-o-o-o many options
There is no consolation
I have lost my illusions
What I want is an [uh her lyrics are the most complicated of those two]explanation

And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me know

And the love direction
You make me feel
You make me shine…
You make me feel
You make me shine…

I got you under my skin…
I got you under my skin…
I got you under my skin…
I got you under my skin…
I got you under my skin…
I got you under my skin…
I got you under my skin…
I got you you you under my skin…

There is no comprehension
There is real isolation
There is so much destruction
What I want is a celebration

And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood
And the world can seem so sad
Only you make me feel good

I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin
I got you [everybody] under my skin
I got you under my skin skin skin
I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin
I got you under my skin

And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood
And the world can seem so sad
Only you make me feel good

And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood

Only you make me feel good

And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood
And the world can seem so sad
Only you make me feel good

While the students rape their teachers
Comets fly across the sky
While the churches burn their preachers

Don’t wanna carry any more
We’re gonna carry this train off the track
We’re gonna swim to the ocean floor

Wash it all over you
Swim to the ocean floor

Wash away all our sins
Crash to the other shore

LYRICS:
Already Gone

Remember all the things we wanted…
Now all our memories they’re haunted.
We were always meant to say goodbye.

Even with our fists held high,
It never would’ve worked out right.
We were never meant for do or die.

I didn’t want us to burn out…
I didn’t come here to hurt you, now I can’t stop.

I want you to know that it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road, someone’s gotta go.
And I want you to know you couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I’m already gone.

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you’ll find another
That doesn’t always make you want to cry.

Started with a perfect kiss then we could feel the poison set in.
Perfect couldn’t keep this love alive.
You know that I love you so, I love you enough to let you go.

I want you to know that it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road, someone’s gotta go.
And I want you to know you couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I’m already gone.

I’m already gone, already gone.
You can’t make it feel right when you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone, already gone.
There’s no moving on so I’m already gone.

Already gone, already gone, already gone…
Already gone, already gone, already gone, yeah.

Remember all the things we wanted…
Now all our memories they’re haunted.
We were always meant to say goodbye.

I want you to know that it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road, someone’s gotta go.
And I want you to know you couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on so I’m already gone.

I’m already gone, already gone…
You can’t make it feel right when you know that it’s wrong.

I’ve been an angel all year, santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa, honey, there’s one more thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine, santa honey
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s
I really do believe in you
Let’s see if you believe in me

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing
A ring
And I don’t mean on the phone, santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight…

LYRICS:

MY WAY

And now, the end is near,
And so I face the final curtain.
My friends, I’ll say it clear;
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain.

I’ve lived a life that’s full -
I’ve traveled each and every highway.
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets? I’ve had a few,
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course -
Each careful step along the byway,
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew,
When I bit off more than I could chew,
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way.

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried,
I’ve had my fill – my share of losing.
But now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that,
And may I say, not in a shy way -
Oh no. Oh no, not me.
I did it my way.

For what is a man? What has he got?
If not himself – Then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way.

Yes, it was my way.

Let me live without this
Empty bliss,

We can push out, sell out, die out
So you’ll shut up
And stay sleeping
With my screaming in your itching ears

I’m so sick,
Infected with where I live
Let me live without this
Empty bliss,
Selfishness
I’m so sick
I’m so sick

Hear it, I’m screaming it
You’re heeding to it now

Hear it! I’m screaming it!
You tremble at this sound

You sink into my clothes
And this invasion
Makes me feel
Worthless, hopeless, sick

I’m so sick,
Infected with where I live
Let me live without this
Empty bliss,
Selfishness
I’m so sick
I’m so sick

I’m so sick
Infected with where I live
Let me live without this
Empty bliss, selfishness
I’m so

MODEL INFO: Tonya Coppola

I’m a silly girl. Someone recently described me as an Edgy Goofball- I’m still not sure exactly what that means. But I know that neither of those words are a fitting description of a Model. Regardless, I love it. I love everything about modeling; I love Clothes, compiling stylish outfits, pictures, posing (I am actually addicted to posing whenever- no runway- no show.. just walking around posing) Its definitely been hard, but I love it. But sometimes I’m like ‘Hey modeling, wanna go play on the swings together?’ and it’s like ‘Nope, I don’t wanna play- I don’t like you today’. It’s not quite like that… but everyone knows I have a notorious crashing problem. Which makes modeling in Sl difficult. But I still love it. So I’ll keep going! I have a long way to go and much to learn. But just because you don’t have the experience and knowledge…yet, doesn’t mean your goals are out of reach or that you don’t have a mighty spirit. Rawr.

The one thing thats made this experience so bright and shiny, are my friends. I have the coolest crew/tribe ever. Friends that are true and honest and have a great sense of humor- Perfect ingredients to keep up your spirits and leave you happy and smiling at the end of the day.
