It's not an adventure if you know what you're looking for.


Turn back the clocks to twelve hours ago
So I can see the sunset stretch across the ­horizon
So the day can be fresh and bright
And I can wake up again
Tell me it's a new day

Lead me to the place where the sea meets
the land
So I can watch the sand turn to shore
So I can run along the edge of the water
And barely get my feet wet
Tell me the water is warm

Give me earrings made of fool's gold
So I can show off what I don't have
So I can pretend to feel beautiful
And lace my dresses with rhinestones
Tell me I look lovely

Sing me a song about how much you love me
So I can hear sweet lies slip between your teeth
So I can dance on my aching feet
And make dissonant harmonies
Tell me you won't stop singing

thank you Corinna! I confronted Ms "Durgaa" and made a post about her plagiarizing ways. I hope she takes her false posts down and realizes that what she's doing is wrong
