“You have to accept that there are some ignorant people who want to vandalise and ruin things, but you can’t let that stop you and the community from trying to do good,” he said.”I frequently see, whenever I am [at the Bayswater garden], some people down the street getting produce and even people passing by.”People who plant on public land do it to share their produce, it’s a great thing.”

Anyone can pick from the Bayswater garden, where locals supply the plants and the city the space and reticulation. “Then they will get approval or written notice of why it has been declined.”

This garden tucked between a pathway and a neighbouring fence was started by residents without permission. “When they become a volunteer with the city they have to do an induction course, their work needs to be checked and they need to keep a logbook of their hours.”Our staff went back and explained to the insurers that these reserves are generally zoned for recreational purposes.”Gardening is recreational so it’s not volunteering for the city, it is utilising the land for the purpose which it is zoned for.”The council motion also retrospectively approved the “guerrilla gardens” that have already been planted. “The residents of this little street over the last 10 years have started planting edible plants,” Mr Cornish said.”It’s fantastic, it looks good and it’s healthy.”Once established, the produce will be freely available to all; the planter won’t have any particular rights to the tree. (ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne) “In essence we have created some very simple guidelines that allow residents to nominate a smallish section of their local park and plant some edible plants, whether that be a tree or something similar,” Mr Cornish said.”If someone sees a suitable location where they’d like to plant a macadamia tree or something, they just have to phone or email the city, state what they want to do and where they want to do it.”They might get approval then and there, or if the officers have some concerns they will arrange a site meeting and might suggest a different spot. Residents in Perth’s inner east will soon be able to plant fruits and vegetables in local parks and reserves without a lengthy approval process.The City of Bayswater Council last week voted unanimously to dramatically reduce the red tape around public gardens.Spearheaded by Deputy Mayor Chris Cornish, he said he believed it was the first initiative of its kind in Australia. Perth’s poor soil bears rare fruit Enthusiasts in Perth are overcoming brutal summers and strict quarantine laws to grow an array of tropical delights. “Initially the insurer said [residents] are volunteers for the city of Bayswater if they are going to be doing gardening and planting trees,” he said. (ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne)
Staff praised for overcoming red tapeMr Cornish credited council staff for their persistence in overcoming objections from the city’s insurers around risk and liability to create the new approval process. That is what community is about.”

Unsurprisingly, the council has won widespread praise for its decision.The policy was inspired by residents who planted a garden, without permission, in a small reserve near Bayswater train station. Thefts won’t stop usWhile the potential for plant theft or vandalism exists, Mr Cornish thinks the gains for the community outweigh possible downsides.In a reserve in nearby Maylands a lime tree planted by residents was recently stolen. “The public owns the tree,” Mr Cornish said.”One would hope for anyone to go down this course that they are more than happy to share the lemons or apples with anyone passing by.

After a difficult few years living out of a van, Chris Spring is ready to compete. (Supplied: Christopher Spring)
It’s not something that’s going to define my entire life.”Spring will compete with the Canadian two-man and four-man bobsleigh teams from February 15 and February 21 respectively. Photo:
Spring is hopeful for a medal at this year’s Games but won’t let a loss weigh him down. We were ranked third in the world in the four-man event and I think sixth or seventh in the two-man,” he said.In other words, his team weren’t expecting to return empty handed. (Supplied: Christopher Spring)
“I feel like the biggest difference I’ve made going into these Olympics is that four years ago I felt like I needed to win a medal,” he said.”Right now, I want to win a medal but I don’t need it. (Supplied: Christopher Spring)
Changing teamsBorn to long-term Darwinites, Spring barely set foot on an athletics track until he was in his late teens. (Supplied: Christopher Spring)
But that’s what happened following a performance Spring said he’d rather have scratched off his professional record. Unsurprisingly then we’ve struggled as a nation to make much of a mark on the so-called Formula One race on ice; the best result of an Australian team being 14th in 2006 and 2014.But the story of Christopher Spring is less like someone overcoming the odds than someone taking a roundabout route to success.”I often look back and look at how my life has been shaped here over the last 10 to 15 years,” he said.”There were forks in the road where just by chance I’ve taken this path and ended up here in Canada and competing for Canada, soon to be at my third Olympic Games.”

In October, Spring set a record when a bobsleigh he piloted reached 154.5kph. External Link:

@BobTeamSpring: 140 characters isn't enough 2express my disappointment
“A lot of people don’t realise the story behind that, but the team I competed with for the entire season … was switched the day before our Olympic race,” he said.”There were some equipment changes as well and that was based on the way coaches thought I was performing during the Olympics.”They didn’t think I had the potential to win a medal, and that was very difficult to handle especially as a pilot that had produced a lot of great results that season.”Combined with the collapse of a relationship, the disappointing result plunged Spring into something of a professional abyss.His solution was to sell almost all of his possessions — the “noise” in his life — and pack the essentials into a van and live out of it.”You might say it was a bit of soul-searching, and on the outside looking in it was some tough decisions or some difficult times in my life.”Heading into this year’s Olympics with an impressive recent run and three difficult years of training behind him, Spring said the vibe had changed entirely.There is less pressure from outside, and from within. Although some of his family still live in the Top End, he got into track and field events after moving to the Sunshine Coast in his high school years.But a bigger move came when Spring relocated to Canada in 2006 and a one-year working visa eventually became a permanent residency when he fell in love with the country.”That was just on a whim, actually. I was not too excited about what I was doing with my life,” he told ABC Radio Darwin’s Liz Trevaskis.”I was at university and although enjoying it, [I was] really looking for a bit more of an adventure.”Spring was 23 by the time he stumbled upon a legacy of the 1988 Winter Olympics hosted by Calgary — a premium bobsled track still used by local athletes.”I found myself at the bobsled track one day just watching a race and kind of fell in love with the sport from then on.”About three years later, when the opportunity came to represent Australia at the 2010 Games in Vancouver, Spring’s two-man team ranked 22nd.But his legs drew attention for their colourful adornments: temporary tattoos of the Australian flag on his left calf and Canadian flags on the other.

@BobTeamSpring: Happy Australia Day
It was a symbolic choice of body art.”A lot of people don’t realise but the Canadians were actually the ones that had taken me under their wing,” said Spring, who received coaching, support and even equipment from Canadian coaches while competing for Australia.”After the 2010 Olympics I had a choice to make.”And I feel like the choice to compete for a different country didn’t lie so much in where my patriotism lied; it was really a decision I made based on what I wanted for myself as a bobsled athlete and where I wanted to see my career go.”After becoming a Canadian citizen in 2013 Spring competed for his new country in the 2014 Games in Sochi.It was also where he got his first taste of high-level disappointment.Losing the groove and getting rid of everythingHeading into those Olympics Spring was riding a professional high.”We had a great season leading up to that. Yes, it sounds like the script for Cool Runnings.But there are many reasons that it’s surprising a pilot on Canada’s Olympic bobsleigh team hails from Darwin, a city with a barely existent ice hockey team and where the weather forecast is usually either rain or sweat.As a sport, bobsleigh is generally difficult to have subsidised or sponsored in Australia and often requires athletes to dig deep into their own pockets.

Maternal behaviour is very strong in flying foxes. Bats usually only hit the headlines when a loud colony moves into a quiet neighbourhood.But behind the screeching and the [exaggerated] threat of disease, these mega-bats are a phenomenon of evolution and are absolutely essential to maintaining healthy ecosystems in Australia.The only true flying mammal

Flying fox wings are actually skin stretched between fingers. Perhaps because of their low reproduction rate, the maternal instinct of flying foxes is incredibly strong.After losing their babies to predators, mothers have been observed flying and calling in the area where they last saw their young for up to a week.Trees entirely dependent on flying foxes for reproduction

“There are quite a few species of eucalypt that only produce nectar at night,” Dr Welbergen said.”These species are by and large dependent on flying foxes.”A study of eucalyptus species within Kakadu National Park found pollination by the black flying fox and little red flying fox was integral to “the maintenance of genetic diversity” and “the long-term survival of native forests”.Unlike other pollinators like bees and flies, flying foxes are able to transport pollen vast distances, and are also able to disperse larger seeds.They have a very rapid digestive system, and are known to pass seeds within half an hour of eating.With two of Australia’s four species — the grey-headed and spectacled flying fox — listed as vulnerable under Australia’s Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) act, Dr Welbergen said their extinction could be catastrophic.”That would reverberate throughout Australia’s forest ecosystems. The order Chiroptera of which bats are a part, literally means “hand wing”.They first appeared in the fossil record about 50 million years ago, and analysing the skeleton clearly shows the evolution of the hands according Western Sydney University senior lecturer Dr Justin Welbergen.”When you look at their skeletons, you can clearly see they have four fingers and a thumb with a membrane grown between it,” he said.Life in the upside down

Photo:
Bats have locking mechanisms in their legs that allow them to hang upside down without using energy. Although there are instances of twins being born, the chance of both offspring surviving is extremely low.Because newborns are entirely dependent on their mothers in the first few months of life, they cling to her when she goes off foraging at night.To get a solid grip, they hang onto her nipple located under her wing, and grip around her waist with their hind legs. (Getty Images: Manuela Schewe-Behnisch)
Flying fox mothers typically give birth to a maximum of one baby every year. (Audience submitted: Barb Leopold)
Although we just kind of accept that bats do it, spending half your life hanging upside down is pretty weird.But as Dr Welbergen explains, it also makes a lot of sense.”Bats have a special tendon with a ratchet-like locking mechanism in their legs which allows them to hang securely without expending any energy,” he said.Unlike birds which can easily take off from a standing position, bats typically drop from heights before taking flight, so hanging upside down means taking off is just a matter of letting go.”Hanging upside down … has enabled the wings, over evolutionary time, to become completely dedicated to powered flight,” Dr Welbergen said.When you spend half your life upside down, you have to be able to get on with just about any task while inverted.

Flying foxes are critical to healthy ecosystems. #ABCWildOz streaming nature LIVE Check out   #ABCWildOz — an intimate and unedited window into the remarkable lives of Australian wildlife. We hear a lot about flying foxes in Australia, but for all the wrong reasons. Known as mega-bats, as opposed to the micro-bat family that includes such species as the bare-rumped sheathtail bat and the tube-nosed insectivorous bat, flying fox wings have evolved from their hands, with a thin membrane of skin stretched between each finger. (Supplied: Jurgen Freund)
Although some mammals and marsupials like flying-squirrels and Australian gliders can leap from heights and glide, bats are the only mammal that can sustain genuinely powered flight. But despite all the effort, copulation is pretty short lived and when it’s over, the female will take off in search of another mate.Is that a nipple under your arm or are you just happy to see me? It would have profound implications.”He says habitat fragmentation due to land clearing is already having a significant detrimental effect on their wellbeing.Check out the flying foxes streaming right now on ABC Wild Oz.

Jon Pardi – She Ain’t In It

[Verse 1]
Appreciate your call, means a lot and all
Yeah, I got a minute
You and me can talk about anything you want
As long as she ain’t in it
Say, it’s been at least a month since I’ve had any fun
Buddy, I’ll admit it
Yeah, I might be going out
Think I’m ready for a crowd
As long as she ain’t in it
[Chorus]
Don’t wanna hear her name
Don’t wanna see her face
I swear, I know its gonna hurt
If I run into her somewhere
[Verse 2]
We could hit that place down by the interstate
Out past the city limits
Hangout all night long
Hear a country song
As long as she ain’t in it
[Chorus]
Don’t wanna hear her name
Don’t wanna see her face
I swear, I know its gonna hurt
If I run into her somewhere
[Verse 3]
I can drink and I can dance
I can party, I can laugh
But no matter how you spin it
Everything has changed
My life won’t be the same
As long as she ain’t in it
As long as she ain’t in it

Janice – You Only Say You Love Me In The Dark

[Verse 1]
It was fun when we first started out
No one could find out about us
Undercover lovers
Never felt quite like this
I want you all the time
Not just for a little bit
Not just for a little bit
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Tell me that you’ll always be mine
But every time we go outside
I feel your hands let go, hands let go of me
[Chorus]
Don’t deny me babe
Wear it out tonight
It breaks my heart, it breaks my heart
You only say you love me in the dark
Don’t lie babe
Don’t keep me on the side
Can’t play that part, can’t play that part
You only say you love me in the dark
[Verse 2]
Now you pretend I don’t exist
Turn your back, acting like we never touched
It’s so obvious

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Tell me that you are really [?]
Don’t leave me wasting all my time
Why did your hands let go, hands let go of me? [Chorus]
Don’t deny me babe
Wear it out tonight
It breaks my heart, it breaks my heart
You only say you love me in the dark
Don’t lie babe
Don’t keep me on the side
Can’t play that part, can’t play that part
You only say you love me in the dark
[Bridge]
I see you dancing with a stranger
I sing along to "all the single ladies"
This game that we made up
I don’t wanna play it
[Chorus]
Don’t deny me babe
Wear it out tonight
It breaks my heart, it breaks my heart
You only say you love me in the dark
Don’t lie babe
Don’t keep me on the side
Can’t play that part, can’t play that part
You only say you love me in the dark

[Outro]
Say you love me
Say you love me, baby
Oh oh, oh
Oh oh, oh
Say you love me
(Say)
Say you love me, baby
Oh oh, oh

Evidence – Jim Dean / Throw It All Away (At Vevo) (Live)

[Refrain]
Here to save the day and steal the game
It ain’t a crime if you don’t get caught
I know names who’re moving the same
We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot
[Verse 1]
My quiet thoughts at night can turn rowdy
Light bulbs and bright ideas can turn cloudy
Big dreams even if they doubt them
I never wasn’t sure if I wasn’t sure about them
This is not your thing, this is ours
Gangsters got this thing about flowers
Rappers got this thing about power
Bitter and sour, gossip at the top of every hour
Walking in the rain off the Jim Beam
Dreams broken on the boulevard, Jim Dean
Get a grip for bars like a gym beam
Eyes redder than the rastas on the swim team

(We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot)
(For you)
(We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot)

[Verse 2]
I ain’t thinking about BET
I’m talking about debt, ‘D’ to add the ‘E-B-T’
91, Dub C, don’t work, you don’t eat
Crossed streets where reality and hard times meet
Back in my youth I was a wildcat
Put my tires in reverse and get some miles back
It’s been a minute since a while back
Round of applause, blow the horns like Miles back
It’s God’s work, that is not in my hands
But I’m holding on tight for a few of my fans
It’s dedicated if the line is short
And if the line goes long, that was your support
There was a few times I wanted your respect
But you try to play me like some kind of a threat
The time done been elusive, ain’t a lack of love
Just an alley cat, got a lack of trust
I went from slow flow to never the same flow
Cause doing part two’s not the reason I came for
Until then I at the end of the rainbow
But still the pot of gold about as real as the game shows
[Refrain]
Here to save the day and steal the game
It ain’t a crime if you don’t get caught
I know names who’re moving the same
We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot

[Scratches]
(We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot)
(We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot)
[Verse 3]
Trooper, just below forty with the wind chill
All my shorties getting spin like the windmills
Weatherman, I’ve been hailed the sky curse
Fire verses I write for what the prize worth
Pot love, won, then I got stuck
Fell, then I got up
Never went back down, never played the background
Anxious more than patient, I attack now
Don’t get my way is when I act out
Never waiting on the industry
Waiting on the tables ’til the tables turning into me
Go back, hands on the clock, you call it throwback
But only no dope and judge not if I know that
Need is need, that ain’t weak shit
But greed is greed, that’s some weak shit
I make a promise I’ma keep it (one-two)
Never take my kindness for a weakness
[Scratches]
(For you)
(We get away with a lot)
(We get away with a lot)
(We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot)
(We’re staying out the way, we get away with a lot)

ZumBee – Funday Onna Sunday

(You not too old to have fun)
[Chorus]
I was seeing when I knew I had to get it one day
I’m so special, I get Chick-fil-A on a Sunday
No commercial, damn let’s board PJ down the runway
Call my niggas, tell ’em pack they bags, let’s have a fun day
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
[Verse 1]
Let’s have a fun day
Monday through Sunday
Don’t want no gunplay
So watch what you say
And you gets no play
Like Bobby Boucher
Three bitches with me
Uno, dos, tres
Got three pretty girls with me and they tryna have fun
I only want you for one night so you can leave when I’m done
Heard your boyfriend got a frown, ’cause you swallowed all my sons
He might as well put it down, it ain’t no bullets in his gun
It ain’t no bullets in your gun and tell me why the fuck you on it
Fourth batter in the lineup, well bitch my bases loaded
Old bread stashed away for rainy days, it’s probably molded
School nigga turned street, when you got caught I know you folded

[Pre-Chorus]
Stop all that flexin’
Blue cheese, salad dressing
Sloppy top, yeah it was messy
With ease, ain’t it a blessing
[Chorus]
I was seeing when I knew I had to get it one day
I’m so special, I get Chick-fil-A on a Sunday
No commercial, damn let’s board PJ down the runway
Call my niggas, tell ’em pack they bags, let’s have a fun day
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
[Verse 2]
I can (yes), and you can’t (hah)
Big racks (bands), in my bank (cash)
Trash can (ooh), ooh he stank (psh)
He mad (mad) ’cause he can’t (can’t)
He tried to swim with a shark, he gon’ fuck around and drown
I heard they hate you when you up but they gon’ love you when you down
These niggas really ain’t your partners, can’t name one that’s really down
It’s only bosses in my circle, ain’t got time to sit around
We got bananas for you monkeys like we played in Jumanji
My favorite color green ’cause I’m in love with the money
Tryna add to the pot like the bees do the honey
Ate my plate, I need seconds, need it all in my tummy

[Pre-Chorus]
Whoa, they say they closed
Not for me, open them doors
Add cheese on number four
Wish you was me, I know, I know
[Chorus]
I was seeing when I knew I had to get it one day
I’m so special, I get Chick-fil-A on a Sunday
No commercial, damn let’s board PJ down the runway
Call my niggas, tell ’em pack they bags, let’s have a fun day
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
[Verse 3]
Tried to bring some people with me on this journey, they didn’t listen
Now my bases loaded full, I’m Michael J, he Scottie Pippen
Bitch we up, please check the score
When we was down man y’all was distant
My first hit was slept on, Banana Peels, I’m never slippin’
We can all have fun, Lil Boat to Budden Joe
So let’s all jump around until we reach another mode
Got a little taste of money but I swear I need some more
I’m a fiend for that paper sort of like I’m Curtis Snow
When the cows go moo and the sheep make a sound
Shiny goes boo, pretty ladies skip around
When the clock strikes two all the panties hit the ground
Bases Loaded be the crew, and bitch it’s ZumBee at the mound

[Chorus]
I was seeing when I knew I had to get it one day
I’m so special, I get Chick-fil-A on a Sunday
No commercial, damn let’s board PJ down the runway
Call my niggas, tell ’em pack they bags, let’s have a fun day
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
Whoa, I just came to have fun
Oh, no, you not too old to have fun
[Outro]
I can, and you can’t
I can, and you can’t
I can, and you can’t
I can, and you can’t
I was seeing when I knew I had to get it one day
No commercial, damn let’s board PJ down the runway [Intro]
I don’t understand man
All these oldheads feeling like they
You know, just too old to have fun man
If you ain’t having fun, then why you doing it?

SOB X RBE – Carpoolin’

What are you doing here? Game on ‘cause we not playful

[Verse 2: Slimmy B]
B-b-b-bitch
Who the fuck gon’ stop me? Dumb bitch then be gone
Offense with them straps, you gon’ need D
Want beef with the gang, you ‘gon need cheese
John Cena with them tints, you can’t see me
Fuck the law, catch a case, nigga free Theeze
If I gotta think twice, I won’t think at all
Bitch we won, all smoke, ain’t no peace at all
Treat the ops like a blunt, I’ll chief ‘em all
Before you play in that field, nigga kick balls
B-b-b-bitch
Yeah, and we is not playin’
You know DaBoii, he a beast you can not tame him
Take a chain on this neck, you are not able
Whole gang full of demons, we are not angels
House visit with the chop, that’s who rock cradle
All the eyes on us, but we not cable
Stand tall through it all, but we not tables
Niggas wanna play? Yeah that’s your bitch but my dick, she be on
8 in a liter, when I sip it be strong
Ain’t tryna chase a bag? Let me hit it from the back, break the headboard
If not, I don’t give a fuck
I got diamonds in my mouth, when I talk bitches lust
Fuck it up sus, nigga getting at me wrong, I’ll fuck ‘em up sus
Chop with a drum, cook fuckin’ up my lungs
Cops looking for the Glock, ‘cause they think a nigga dumb
You will never see me posing with another nigga funds
You will never see me clutching on another nigga gun
Bitch I’m a soldier, I don’t got no limit
I’m a foreign car driver, I don’t ride no Civic
I’m a wild ass nigga and I don’t act civil
I don’t smoke no kush, I don’t smoke no skittles
Addicted to them racks, I’m a motherfuckin’ thief
All these bands still hanging out my motherfuckin’ jeans
Give a nigga all head ‘til its barely dome
I been running at that bag ‘til it’s barely gone
Let a nigga hit like I’m Barry Bonds
And I don’t fuck with niggas, I’m a uncle tom
Four-five on my hip but I’ll tote a nine
And if you ever take my bitch she was barely mine

[Outro]
RBE SOB that’s the gang bitch All these shooters with me, who the fuck gon’ try me? All this ice on, who the fuck gon’ rob me? What are you doing here? Get to bustin’ have you niggas running, zig-zags (boom, boom)
Hit the road, get the bag, then I flip that
All the time my brother got, he can’t get back
But I got bands for him tucked when he get back
[?] a nigga got, I’ll switch it up
When you jump in these streets ain’t no givin’ up
Big .40, I’ll make a nigga give it up
And nigga reach for the chain, imma hit ‘em up
Crazy when you see your day ones switchin’ up
Crazy when you see the opp niggas clickin’ up
Fucking on a ho bitch? (Yeah bitch it’s true)
Fuck what you thought, fuck what you knew
I’m a gold diggin’ nigga, need a check out a bitch
I’ll pass her to the gang, they get neck out the bitch
You was texting like you with it, what you scared for? I can fix that
Just bought a Glock with the plug, where them sticks at? (Yeah bitch it’s true)
Six figures to my name? [Verse 1: DaBoii]
Bitch! Get off on who you mad at
Niggas laughing, we is down, now they laughed at
Bitch swallow all my kids, I’m a bad dad
Looking for revenge with this Glock, once we tap tap
Stich brain on the opps watch ‘em quack, quack
Indian giver with his life, he can’t have back
He ain’t putting in work, he a half ass
Can’t ride the wave, go home on your back pack
Bitch, what type of shit is you on? (Yeah bitch it’s true)
Heard I don’t fuck with you? [Intro]
Yo…what are you doing here? You niggas sick as fuck
And if it ain’t about a bag, I ain’t picking up

[Verse 3: Yhung T.O.]
First off, suck a nigga dick
Pole for an opp coming, suck a nigga clip
Clip so long, that it’s poking off my hip
If I wasn’t taken, I’d take a nigga bitch
Am I really insane? High of the kush, in the clouds you can find me
I don’t fuck with niggas like a nazi
Nobody else, then I know God got me
Hi-Tech turn a nigga to a zombie
And I don’t want the puss, lil baby just top me (give me head)
I’ll set it off in this bitch
Feel like Rick Ross, I’m the boss in this bitch
Smack for a band, don’t get bought in this bitch
Make you bulletproof the whip, like Young Dolph in that bitch (boom, boom)
Touch a hundred bands, yeah I did that
Hit the lot, couple bands, yeah I did that
This street shit, naw nigga you don’t live that
Aid or a kick back, real nigga been that (lil’ nigga)
LV and Gucci had to mismatch
And for the right price, you can get your bitch back
Tired of them broke niggas?

Portugal. The Man – Keep On (Uncensored)

[Chorus]
Got me thinking bout it
All day long
(Bangin’ my head against the wall)
All day long
(Bangin’ my head against the wall)
All day long
(Bangin’ my head against the wall)
All day long
And it’s all and it’s all and it’s all day long
‘Til we’re dead and gone
[Verse 3]
Maybe I’m trippin’ to tell the truth
Don’t have a clue
(Maybe you’re not alone, that’s right)
Maybe I missed out on my youth
Playing it cool

Man in the mirror like
Grow up, be a winner
Blow up, be a winner
[Chorus]
All day long, ’til we’re dead and gone
(be a winner)
All day long, ‘tll we’re dead and gone
(grow up, be a winner)
All day long, ’til we’re dead and gone
Bangin’ my head against the wall
All day long
And it’s all and it’s all and it’s all day long
Bangin’ my head against the wall
‘Til we’re dead and gone
And it’s all day long ’til we’re dead and gone
Bangin’ my head against the wall [Verse 1]
Keep on hangin’ on
Stuck here ’til I’m gone
Boys still throwin’ stones
Runnin’ till I’m wrong
I never listened
To tell the truth
I never knew
But nobody misses
What you did
Quite like I do
[Chorus]
Got me thinkin’ ’bout it
All day long
(’til we’re dead and gone)
All day long
(’til we’re dead and gone)
Bangin’ my head against the wall
All day long
Bangin’ my head against the wall
Dead and gone
[Verse 2]
But I’m seein’ a pattern
Fallin’ from a ladder
Must be trippin’ like a cartoon
Slippin’ on a banana

Looked up in the sun
Burned out but I ain’t done
Ice cream meltin’ down
Drippin’ on the ground
Young black and gifted
Never lose, gotta be the shoes
That old money privilege
Got me confused
What is it you do?

Paramore – Rose-Colored Boy

[Intro]
Low-key, no pressure, just hang with me and my weather
Low-key, no pressure, just hang with me and my weather
[Verse 1]
Rose-colored boy
I hear you making all that noise
About the world you want to see
And oh, I’m so annoyed
‘Cause I just killed off what was left of the optimist in me
[Pre-Chorus]
But hearts are breaking, and wars are raging on
And I have taken my glasses off
You got me nervous
I’m right at the end of my rope
A half empty girl
Don’t make me laugh, I’ll choke
[Chorus]
Just let me cry a little bit longer
I ain’t gon’ smile if I don’t want to
Hey man, we all can’t be like you
I wish we were all rose-colored too
My rose-colored boy

Low-key, no pressure, just hang with me and my weather
[Verse 2]
I want you to stop insisting that I’m not a lost cause
‘Cause I’ve been through a lot
Really all I’ve got is just to stay pissed off
If it’s all right by you
[Pre-Chorus]
But hearts are breaking, the wars are raging on
And I have taken my glasses off
You got me nervous
And you’re turning it into a joke
A half empty girl
Don’t make me laugh, I’ll…
[Chorus]
Just let me cry a little bit longer
I ain’t gon’ smile if I don’t want to
Hey, man, we all can’t be like you
I wish we were all rose-colored too
My rose-colored boy
[Bridge]
Leave me here a little bit longer
I think I wanna stay in the car
I don’t want anybody seeing me cry now
You say "We gotta look on the bright side"
I say "Well, maybe if you wanna go blind"
You say my eyes are getting too dark now
But boy, you ain’t ever seen my mind

[Chorus]
Just let me cry a little bit longer
I ain’t gon’ smile if I don’t want to
Hey, man, we all can’t be like you
I wish we were all rose-colored too
My rose-colored boy
Just let me cry a little bit longer
I ain’t gon’ smile if I don’t want to
I know we all can’t be like you
I wish we were all rose-colored too
My rose-colored boy
[Outro]
Low-key, no pressure, just hang with me and my weather
Low-key, no pressure, just hang with me and my weather

Julia Michaels – Heaven

[Intro]
Ooooh… ooooh…
Oooooh…
[Verse 1]
Love’s my religion
But he was my faith
Something so sacred
So hard to replace
Fallin’ for him was like fallin’ from grace
All wrapped in one
He was so many sins
Would have done anything
Everything for him
And if you ask me
I would do it again
[Chorus]
No need to imagine
‘Cause I know it’s true
They say "all good boys go to heaven"
But bad boys bring Heaven to you
It’s automatic
It’s just what they do
They say "all good boys go to heaven"
But bad boys bring Heaven to you

[Verse 2]
You don’t realise the power they have
Until they leave you and you want them back
Nothing in this world prepares you for that
I’m not a sinner;
He wasn’t the one
Had no idea what we would become
There’s no regrets
I just thought it was fun
[Chorus]
No need to imagine
‘Cause I know it’s true
They say "all good boys go to heaven"
But bad boys bring Heaven to you
It’s automatic
It’s just what they do
They say "all good boys go to heaven"
But bad boys bring Heaven to you
[Bridge]
I still remember the moment we met
The touch that he planted
The garden he left
I guess the rain was just half that effect

[Chorus]
No need to imagine
‘Cause I know it’s true
They say "all good boys go to heaven"
But bad boys bring Heaven to you
It’s automatic
It’s just what they do
They say "all good boys go to heaven"
But bad boys bring Heaven to you
[Outro]
Ooooh… ooooh…
Oooooh…
