If Only She Had Wings to Fly by Louisalings If Only She Had Wings to Fly by Louisalings
For sale as a poster. Please send me a note if you're interested.

Trouble is her only friend, and he's back again;
makes her body older than it really is.
And she says it's high time she went away,
no oneís got much to say in this town.
Trouble is the only way is down, down, down...

If she had wings she would fly away,
and another day god will give her some.
Trouble is the only way is down, down, down...

As strong as you were,
tender you go.
I'm watching you breathing
for the last time...
A song for your heart,
but when it is quiet
I know what it means...

I'll carry you home.

I'll carry you home.

Ayumi Hamasaki, Japanese singer :heart:
This is my all-time favourite photo of her, I think<3

The shades are A LOT more even in real life, and the background is not... all grainy and hitch-hatchy; my scanner just once again kicked my drawing to death :shakefist:


OBS: This is NOT edited in some photo-software program. This is a pure scan of the original drawing -it's only worsened by my stupid scanner- and itís completely touch-free. I really hate when people automatically assume I've used Photoshop (or a similar program) to edit the details and contrast of my drawings. Just a little notion before anyone asks.

Medium; sketching pencils.
Time; forever and a day.

Scanners can be nasty - but even trying hard I cannot see what you consider bad about the picture - if this is the "killed" version - the "live" one would presumably just knock me over-

thank you for sharing this awesome picture!
