When I think of those East End lights, muggy nights
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore
We've all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye
I never realised the passing hours of evening showers
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
It's four o'clock in the morning
Damn it listen to me good
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive
And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your H.P. demands forever
They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
So save your strength and run the field you play alone

Same here, disappointed to see where this ended up. I'll say no more...but let your imagination take care of that! :/

Fascinating. An invitation in to your imagination and thoughts. Stark contrast and tones, as if the act of living is black and whit. Alive or dead.

Seems I forgot to post the fish despite the 10.

That ole bird makes the shot.

A tighter crop on the lower part would improve the entry

Beautiful. I love how the bird is isolated in the dark band. I'd probably crop out most of the bottom, up to the largest willow in the center.

Altar bound, hypnotized, sweet freedom whispered in my ears..
Not sure if the image in itself conveys the sense of narrow escape which clears the mind and gives a sense of newly found freedom.
But the title and image work very well in depicting the concept, and I like the concept a lot. Good job.

- edited for spelling mistakes.
