Help Me Thru The Night (Film Version)

Shot Of The Day: November 29, 2016





QOTD:
Somewhere along the way I found the meaning,
woke up dreamin’ along the way.
Never quite seems the same when you awaken,
and makin’ up for the time you’ve such a price to pay,
and then they take the dream away, and it just ain’t fair.

Help me thru the night Mama, help me to ease the pain.
Tell me it’s alright, help me thru the night once again.

— Joe Walsh

Shadow Man

Shot Of The Day: November 26, 2016





QOTD:
And the roses bloom
In the mirror dust
As the tidal drift
Comes lifting us
And the shadow man
And his shadow stand
On the shifting sand
And he waves his hand
The shadow man

Forgotten Years

Shot Of The Day: November 25, 2016





QOTD:
You took your hands off the wheel
You said you felt
You could no longer steer
I get the sudden taste of fear
Oh remember when
I found you then
In your forgotten years
Forgotten years
