Listen to "The World Spins Madly On" by the Weepies as you read the lyrics.<br />The World Spins Madly On-The Weepies<br />Woke up and wished that I was deadWith an aching in my headI lay motionless in bedI thought of you and where you'd goneand let the world spin madly on<br />Everything that I said I'd doLike make the world brand newAnd take the time for youI just got lost and slept right through the dawnAnd the world<br />
  3. 3. “The World Spins Madly” on cont.<br />spins madly onI let the day go byI always say goodbyeI watch the stars from my window sillThe whole world is moving and I'm standing stillWoke up and wished that I was deadWith an aching in my headI lay motionless in bedThe night is here and the day is goneAnd the world spins madly onI thought of you and where you'd goneAnd the world spins madly on.<br />
  4. 4. “On Pure Blossoms”<br />Read the poem: "On Plum Blossoms"<br /> “On Plum Blossoms”-Li Ch'ing-Chao This morning I wokeIn a bamboo bed with paper curtains.I have no words for my weary sorrow,No fine poetic thoughts.The sandalwood incense smoke is stale,The jade burner is cold.I feel as though I were filled with quivering water.To accompany my feelings<br />
  5. 5. “On Pure Blossoms” - cont<br />Someone plays three times on a flute"Plum Blossoms Are Fallingin a Village by the River."How bitter this Spring is.Small wind, fine rain, hsiao,hsiao,Falls like a thousand lines of tears.The flute player is gone.The jade tower is empty.Broken hearted- we had relied on each other.I pick a plum branch,But my man had gone beyond the sky,And there is no one to give it to.<br />
