slug

Don't want to lose my shirt
Don't want to do the dirt
Don't want you to get hurt
Can't help but I'm a flirt
Don't want to take your drugs
Don't want to be a slug
Don't want to overdress
Don't want to make a mess
Don't want you to confess
Not under duress
Don't want be untrue
I want to be with you
Don't want to lose my nerve
Don't want to throw the curve
Don't want to make you swerve
Don't want what I deserve
Don't want to change the frame
Don't want to be a pain
Don't wanna stay the same

Nice meeting you, like the lighting and mood.

Torn between cold and warmth, darkness and light, closure and freedom, wants and don'ts... Your picture and your words made us feel and think, your thoughts and perhaps your inner struggle. There is always a way out... Exceptional. Big vote.

There are sometimes photos where the balance between the lighter parts and the darker ones is so perfect that by itself such brief moment of photographic bliss is enough to arouse deep emotions, this is why I firmly believe that even without the lyrics this image would stand up by itself so perfectly that maybe the urge to write a song for it, will suddely be born on the most unaware of viewers... And this is no small thing.
It seems that here we've stumbled upon you, as you endured the long dark winter of the soul, where not even the warmest of clothes can provide the warmth you seek. It's almost like you've shyly showing yourself to the light, not really sure if it will be enough to break this ghastly spell.. we feel that tension and it seems like a photo was done on that brifest of moments when one isn't really sure if one should step back into the darkness, because though cold, its so familiar or if instead one should just plunge into the light, though promissing it can be frighting to not really know what it will be.... Yes! I think those lyrics fit to your photo perfectly.
Great one Niall. Congrats.

Damn this is good... what a way so start the year...
when Mr O'Shea joins Bono passion flows all around, from darkness to enlightment, from sharpness to bluriness but always having true feelings guiding the way.
Bravo Niall !!
