‘Limitless’ English Lyrics

The dream that shook up my world last night
Was it a nightmare, am I still in that dream?
Following the light that pulled me, I’m in a maze
There, I discovered another passage

The space is opening from the bottom up
A persistent call inside a strange darkness
Then I saw you, who resembles me
I’m you and you’re me

I’m following the light and sound
That knocks and wakes me up
I felt shivers, I finally realized
Oh baby it’s you

It’s only the beginning, the limitless me
From the start of the East to the end of the West
The light gets stronger as it spreads through the darkness
Open your eyes
My song is getting louder
Did you see? That hot and explosive world?
Can you hear? We have become one
Baby I don’t want nobody but you

Ho, ho, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty for love
Wake me, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty

They were all chasing dreams while being deceived
Most of them only consider themselves as the real deal
Or else they hide with their backs turned
The repeating days are so cruel

Lies stick, they are sticky
In this gray city, it ain’t got a chance
I wondered when the future was gonna come
But it’s in front of my eyes now

A short but strong blue light (light)
My seventh sense has awakened (sense)
One becomes two and sometimes becomes 100
The hardened world becomes flexible

Change the heavy world (change)
Look how free we are, so free
Inside, only you are allowed (allowed)
The one to take my heart, that is you

I need a connection, I want it like crazy
I need you
I need something to make us feel each other completely
I need you
Oh baby it’s you

It’s only the beginning, the limitless me
From the start of the East to the end of the West
The light gets stronger as it spreads through the darkness
Open your eyes
My song is getting louder
Did you see? That hot and explosive world?
Can you hear? We have become one
Baby I don’t want nobody but you

Help me so I can do well
Sometimes, I get lost
Eventually, we are all connected
You know this
Like finding a big ocean at the end of a desert
Your existence is limitless
Oh baby it’s you

It’s only the beginning, the limitless me
From the start of the East to the end of the West
The light gets stronger as it spreads through the darkness
Open your eyes
My song is getting louder
Did you see? That hot and explosive world?
Can you hear? We have become one
Baby I don’t want nobody but you

Ho, ho, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty for love
Wake me, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty

Your mercy like the heavens
it reaches to the clouds
Your righteousness like great mountains
are preserved within the sound

That You loved me abundantly
in the shadow of Your wings
All creation is wondering
when the sons will come to drink

From the river of Your pleasures,
from the fountain of Your life;
for in Your light we see light
In Your fullness we’re satisfied

But your voice,—never the rushing
Of a river underground,
Not the rising of the wind
In the trees before the rain,
Not the woodcock’s watery call,
Not the note the white-throat utters,
Not the feet of children pushing
Yellow leaves along the gutters
In the blue and bitter fall,
Shall content my musing mind
For the beauty of that sound
That in no new way at all
Ever will be heard again.

- Edna St. Vincent Millay, from Elegy.

Newborn Princess CHAPTER 3

Summary: As Happy comes back from a late run he hears crying and finds a baby in a basket on his doorstep, with a letter saying that it was his. Will he raise the child or give it up. 

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

I’m super glad that you all like this story so much don’t worry this isn’t the last part there is soooo much more to come!!! <3

WARNINGS: Language


OUTFIT THE BABY IS WEARING

“You sure do look cute.” Happy said then grabbed his phone dialing his moms number, “Why look who decided to call?” He heard his mother cheer. “I’m on my way I should be there in an hour.” He answered simply and smirked when he heard his daughter’s loud cry.

“Happy? What’s that in the background…it sounds like a baby?” His mother said, “We’ll see you in an hour ma.”

“We? Happy who’s we…” Happy hung up his phone and tossed it in the seat next to him with a laugh, “Yeah ma’s gonna have a damn heart attack.

He was only a few minutes away but decided to pull into a gas station, “Let’s fill up this car, huh baby.” He said pulling up to a pump and shutting off the truck. Putting his burner in his pocket he walked out and went to the side were his daughter was opening the door to hear her loud squeal. “I hear you girl I ain’t leavin’ you in this hot ass car.” Happy told her as he lifted her up taking her into his arm then grabbing the diaper bag with the other.

Happy walked into the gas station which seemed to be littered with teenagers making him grunt  as he went into the bathroom, “Shit.” Happy growled as he walked into the men’s then back out when he didn’t see a changing table. “Fuck it.” He said then went into the women’s bathroom locking the door behind himself. “What am I going to name my girl?” He whispered as he began to change her diaper then put a a pacifier with the Anarchy A on it. He buckled her in with the straps on the changing table then did his business when he was done with her.

“Oh my god that is the woman’s bathroom!” A woman gasped when he walked out with his daughter. “I had to change my damn kid.” He growled, “You should’ve let her mother do it.”

Little Lowman let out a loud scream and Happy rocked her slightly, “Her mom didn’t want her.” He growled back and the woman backed away at the venomous sound of his voice, “I gotcha girl. Relax.” Happy whispered as he held her against his chest her headband covered head against his neck.

Happy walked around the aisles glaring at any of the kids that looked his way, “Sucks that you’re to young for juice.” He told his girl then walked to the counter waiting in line.

“50 on 10.” Happy said then pulling out fifty dollars from his wallet which was difficult, “First time dad?” The cashier asked in a soft voice, she was a woman about early twenties maybe, short dark brown hair, glasses with brown eyes, the sun making them look slightly orange. “Yeah.” She nodded her head, “Yeah my brother and his girlfriend just had their first kids…set of twins.” She laughed and Happy smirked, “Damn.

“She’s beautiful how old is she.” The woman smiled and gave a little wave making his daughter coo and squirm in his arms, “Hi.” She laughed, “She was two weeks premature but she’s a month old now.” Happy said poking his girl’s cheek. “I was two months premie.” She scrunched up her face, “But she’s a beauty.” She smiled, then gasped, “Oh I’m sorry, uh you said 50 on 10 right. Sorry bout that.”

Happy smirked when she took the money, “No problem baby.” He winked before he turned to walk out the door then to his truck were he put his daughter in her car seat. Happy filled up the truck quickly then drove to his mother’s house chuckling when he noticed his mom sitting on her porch. “Okay baby girl, let’s go see abuelita.” He said as he parked.

Happy stepped out of the truck then went to the other door, noticing that his ma kept trying to see what he was doing. “She’s probably going to be pissed for a bit but don’t worry ma will love ya.”

Happy picked up his daughter out of the car seat and grabbed the diaper bag and another which he filled with clothes that he was going to leave here for when she visits. Carrying his daughter he made his way to the house which he grew up in, “H-Happy what…is that a?” His mother didn’t even know were to start.

“It’s a baby mom.” He said when he stopped in front of her, “It’s my baby ma. This is my daughter.” The woman covered her mouth as she felt tears well up in her eyes, “No.” Rosa, Happy’s mother, gasped and Happy nodded his head, “Guess I wasn’t to careful. Took a DNA test ma…she’s mine.”

Rosa felt some tears fall down her cheek as she looked at the little baby, her skin a lighter shade of Happy’s, short dark hair and brown eyes, “This is my grand daughter…I’m a grandmother.”

“Yeah, you’re a grandma.” Rosa wiped her eyes and looked up at her son, “How?”

“Well me and this chick…” Happy started and Rosa slapped his arm sharply and glared, “Oh don’t be a smart ass.” He chuckled and his daughter whined. “I’ll tell you inside, she’s hungry.”


“How could a woman just leave a baby out in the cold?” Rosa asked as she patted her granddaughter’s back, “Come on baby, burp for abuela (grandmother).” As if she knew she let out a deep burp making Rosa smile. “So you haven’t thought of a name?”

“Have a few but I don’t really like them.” He grunted as he leaned back into the couch. “What about Malinda?” Rosa offered and Happy shook his head. “Or Selena…don’t like that either…hmm maybe Kataline”

“I don’t know ma.” Happy said, “You think you could watch her I haven’t had any sleep.”

Rosa let out a laugh, “Sure baby.” Happy leaned down and kissed both woman on the head, “In thirty minutes there is a prescription that she has to take for her cold. I don’t think she’ll need it I haven’t heard her wheezing or coughing but just I case ya know.”

“Alright hun, you go get some sleep I’ll wake you up when dinner’s done. Love you baby.” Rosa called and cradled her new granddaughter, ¿Qué tal un amor canción? (How about a song sweetheart?)”

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds
And drives away his fear

Must Jesus bear the cross alone
And all the world go free?
No, there’s a cross for ev'ryone
And there’s a cross for me”

Happy watched as his mother sang to his child and that’s when it hit him…when everything happened hit him. He was a dad, a single father that would be raising a kid all on his own…but he’d have the help of the club which felt nice to have that extra support. It scared him that he was scared to raise his daughter but I mean who could blame him, it wasn’t just him anymore that he would have to worry about. It was him and his little girl, meaning there was another mouth to feed, another body to clothe, another person to protect. A baby was a big deal and he doesn’t understand why he didn’t see the seriousness of this situation sooner.

What if he was a bad father? What if he was like his father? No. No he’d never be like his father, he would swear to never put his hands on his child the way his father did to him, he swore to never abandon her. When shit got tough he wasn’t going to leave her. He had to be stronger than he was, not for him but for her. He wouldn’t be alone in his house anymore, he had her and he wouldn’t be able to come home at four in the morning with a crow because he had her. Those thoughts were over whelming  but he had to man up for her, for his child…the thought made him a little mad that his dad didn’t do the same for him.  Happy wasn’t gonna miss a thing, not her first steps or first words, first date or dance, nah he wasn’t going to miss a thing.

It was around 6:30 when Rosa knocked on Happy’s door, he bolted upright opening the door quickly, “Is she alright?”

Rosa smiled softly and raised the baby in her arms, “We just came to wake you up for dinner. She woke up from her nap about ten minutes ago.” Rosa informed and Happy nodded as he sighed, his hand going to stroke her cheek as she sucked on her bo-bo. Her brown eyes staring at him with the intensity that he usually stares at others with, “Natasha.” He whispered so low that he barely heard himself say it.

“I think that’s a beautiful name.” Rosa smiled then looked down at her grand-baby, “Well Natasha let’s give daddy a minute huh?” He heard his mom hum as they walked down the hall and into the kitchen, leaving him alone to put on a shirt and grab his phone.

“Natasha. I like that name I wonder were he came up with that.” He heard his ma say to his daughter as she walked around bouncing his daughter. “Might have to give you some tummy time.”

“Yeah I brought a blanket for her.” Happy said as moved the coffee table and replace it with a blanket. “Come here baby girl.” Happy said as he picked up Natasha, “Where did you come up with that name?” Rosa asked as she watched her son bounce his daughter gently, her head cradled underneath his chin. Little hands poked at his chest making him kiss her head softly, “I don’t know. A chick I met today had that name and I thought it was nice. What you don’t like it?” He asked as he knelt down placing his daughter on her stomach.

“No I think it’s a pretty name for a pretty girl.” She smiled, “I’ll go get your food hon.” She said and Happy sat on the floor with his back against the couch.

“You’re liftin’ your head really good baby.” Happy smiled as he put his hand in front of her, her fingers grabbing his with a coo and squeal. He moved his hand back and she reached her hands out to grab his, lifting her head, “Good job.” He said and she let out a sharp squeal as she slapped her hands on the ground.

“You know I need to take pictures later with the both of you.” Rosa stated as she walked over with two plates in her hands, “Let’s turn you over baby.” Happy mumbled and rolled Natasha gently onto her stomach, then took his plate of food.

“Thanks ma.” He said around a mouthful of food.

Echoes.

Do you ever hear a sound,
a loud resonating sound
that stays in your ear for
a very long time?
It visits all your senses,
trickling down every capillary
and pinches the tips of your fingers.

A sound that creeps on your limbs
and echoes through your heart.
As if you had heard it repeatedly
instead of once all those moments ago;
So clear that it ignited a trail
of fire and havoc in you
and yet at its ring,
the world perished away
into a silent movie made of shadows.

You may have heard it in the subway,
During your walk home or over lunch,
in a hospital or by a grave,
or maybe you heard it in your sleep
as it whispers for you to remember.

As I have lived and died
and lived just to breathe again,
I finally understood what it kept
trying to say.

Yes, my eyes have seen your unselfishness
and my fingers touched your two sleeping lips

as the echoes passed just above our heads

as the city flashed just beneath the cloud

that concealed the stars and reflected sound
that protected us from an emptiness
and then drifted down in a diamond mist

as I watched you breathe
as I watched you dream

I can feel it now
I’m feeling now
Then it’s gone

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
Was blind, but now I see


‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed


My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

External image

I listen for you.
There are sounds that you make,

sounds that could always
cause my heart to break.

Still,

I listen for you.

Your special sound
that is always there
and can somehow travel
like light
through the air.

As if
molecules of resistance
step out of the way

to grant special passage
to the words that you say.

Somehow through time,
somehow through space,
I hear them faintly,
there is always a trace
of that special sound

that I could never take
thus I lay myself down
and offer my heart
to break.

the time we laughed
into each other’s mouths
because our chests
made that sucking sound
that chests do when
they rub together.

the time you offered your cheek,
said, “say hello,”
and waited for a kiss.

the first time i cried,
and your heart poured
forth flowers.
your lips, honey.

the time we flew
across foreign skies
and our palms
pressed into each other,
and your laugh rang out
like bells.

the time you whispered,
“don’t leave,”
as i put on my boots,
zipped up my coat.

the time you brought me
eleven sunflowers.
eleven, because you knew
i loved odd numbers.

the last time i cried,
and how your silence
echoed it back at me.

i know you hurt, too.

— how i choose to remember us

The music in the background of this promo pic is Amazing Grace… let’s revisit the lyrics:

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now I’m found.
Was blind but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Then when we first begun.

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I’m found.
Was blind, but now I see

I think the first part is most important - I don’t think they’d be referencing the lesser known last verses.  However, with all the blind Sherlock meta going around and Sherlock’s personality growth/redemption arc, doesn’t this seem to really confirm johnlock?

anonymous asked:

How do you explain to a nonbeliever why God saves anyone who believes? I have a friend that thinks it's terrible that a murderer can get into heaven alongside a relatively "good" person.

It’s not the murderer that goes to heaven. By the time Jesus is done with him, he’s a totally new person. 

And there’s no such thing as a relatively “good” person. There is no relative good. Only objective good, and Jesus said that only God is good! Compared to Him we’re all a wretch, just like it says in the old song:

Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.

The best lie the devil ever told was that we’re relatively good. 

If we could get to heaven on our own merits, it wouldn’t be amazing grace. It wouldn’t be grace at all.
