In Honor of New Moon

Let me first explain to you that I am an Edward girl. I find very little about Jacob appealing. He's warm-blooded, which is a plus. But he's an arrogant little boy, with a temper. And, he wears an old pair of worn out cut off sweats. Yes, I know why. But it still bugs me, okay?

Even so...I have always very strongly felt that the song I'm Your Man by Michael Buble is so purely a 'Jacob' theme song. I have to share it with you. I'm trying to get a sound file. Can't figure it out. But check back, cause I might just get it. I've gathered a few photos that I thought were appropriate.


Can you stand it? I can't. I just can't.


Here are the song lyrics.

I'm Your Man
Michael Buble

If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner
Take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I'm your man

If you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I'll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver
Climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
'Cause I'm your man

Ah, the moon's too bright
The chains too tight
The beast won't go to sleep
I've been running through these promises to you
That I made and could not keep
Ah but a man never got a woman back
If not by begging on his knees
I'd crawl to you baby
And I'd fall at your feet
I'd howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I'd claw at your heart
And I'd tear at your sheet
I'd say please
'Cause I'm your man

And if you've got to sleep
A moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
I'll disappear for you
And If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while
Across the sand
Well, I'm your man

Ah, the moon's too bright
The chains too tight
The beast won't go to sleep
I've been running through these promises to you
That I made and could not keep
Ah but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
I'd crawl to you baby
And I'd fall at your feet
I'd howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I'd claw at your heart
And I'd tear at your sheet
I'd say please
'Cause I'm your man
I'm your man.

'Cause I'm your man.



Girls, I cannot tell you enough how much better this song is when you actually listen to it. He sings it with so much intensity.


Going back to the way I felt the first time I read New Moon, I was very annoyed with Edward. I understood his reasons, but it felt very torturous. Seriously? That first half of the book tore my heart out. Even so, I kept waiting for something like the next picture to happen.



Or the next one......



Or better yet -


:::holding my breath:::







Just let that fluffy soft little feather float slowly through the air and settle down wherever you imagine it to settle.

If you do not know the significance of the feather - heaven and earth! you need to find out.

And for those of you who didn't really enjoy the feather,
or ever get around to finding out that much,
(you know who you are);
despite being a little confused, I have only frail amounts of pity for you.

So, here's to New Moon. This post is a bit premature, I know.

But the pictures are so pleasant to look at.

Aren't they?

The feather picture/comment was the BEST! You crack me up.
I'm so going to read New Moon again. I've forgotten how badly I wanted the same things to happen.
