  1. 2 of 5
    The ponies run, the girls are young
    The odds are there to beat
    You win a while and then it’s done
    Your little winning streak
    And summoned now to deal
    With your invincible defeat
    You live your life as if it’s real
    A thousand kisses deep

    I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed
    I’m back on boogie street
    You lose your grip and then you slip
    Into the masterpiece
    And maybe I had miles to drive
    And promises to keep
    You ditch it all to stay alive
    A thousand kisses deep

    And sometimes when the night is slow
    The wretched and the meek
    We gather up our hearts and go
    A thousand kisses deep

    Confined to sex we pressed against
    The limits of the sea
    I saw there were no oceans left
    For scavengers like me
    I made it to the forward deck
    I blessed our remnant fleet
    And then consented to be wrecked
    A thousand kisses deep

    I’m turning tricks I’m getting fixed
    I’m back on boogie street
    I guess they won’t exchange the gifts
    That you were meant to keep
    And quiet is the thought of you
    The file on you complete
    Except what we forgot to do
    A thousand kisses deep

    And sometimes when the night is slow
    The wretched and the meek
    We gather up our hearts and go
    A thousand kisses deep

    The ponies run, the girls are young
    The odds are there to beat
    You win a while and then it’s done
    Your little winning streak
    And summoned now to deal
    With your invincible defeat
    You live your life as if it’s real
    A thousand kisses deep

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
    Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Oh, let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
    Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
    Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
    Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
    We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
    Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
    Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
    Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

Today’s Birthday:
Marcel Marceau (1923)

Marceau was a French actor and mime who gained renown in 1947 with the creation of Bip, a sad, white-faced clown with a tall, battered hat—reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp. Noted for his eloquent, deceptively simple portrayals, he earned worldwide acclaim in the 1950s with his production of the “mimodrama” of Nikolai Gogol’s Overcoat. In 1978, he founded a school of mimodrama in Paris. How did Marceau’s miming help save children from the Nazis during World War II?

Remarkably, Malarchuk was able to skate off the ice despite bleeding heavily. He survived because his team’s athletic trainer, a former army medic, did what?

Sufferers exposed to such procedures may experience anxiety, faintness, sweating, nausea, and panic attacks, and they may therefore avoid inoculations, blood tests, and, in extreme cases, all medical care.
