„You let me violate you. You let me desecrate you.
You let me penetrate you. You let me complicate you.
Help me, I broke apart my insides.
Help me, I've got no soul to sell.
Help me; the only thing that works for me.
Help me get away from myself.I want to fuck you like an animal.
I want to feel you from the inside.
I want to fuck you like an animal.
My whole existence is flawed.
You get me closer to God.“

Come on baby, do the locomotion.

So come on, come on do the locomotion with me.“

„I said, I like my life. If I
have to give it back, if they
take it from me, let me only
not feel I wasted any, let me
not feel I forgot to love anyone

to give what I held in my hands,
that I forgot to do some little
piece of the work that wanted
to come through.“

„There's alot of things I want, a lot of things that I'd like to be.
But girl, I don't foresee a rags-to-riches story for me.
There's just one little dream I've got to come true;
There's just one round I've gotta win,
I can't be a loser with you.
Baby, baby, once in my life, let me get what I want,
Girl, don't let me down!
Just once in my life, let me hold on to one good thing I found!“
— Carole King Nasa 1942
