Number 8 in a series of images generated with the instructions in this tutorial called Portals by dA’s SaTaNiA (Damien G.), with nine transforms plus xheart added to the final transform. Best if viewed larger.

Heart of Glass
by Deborah Harry and Chris Stein

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We coulda made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

  • Thank you for the lovely comment and fave, Carolyn! I may have made the bar too high even for myself, LOL, as I am now unsure whether to even post the two I had working before I made this one :o))) Only fair, though, as you have done this to me several times before ;o)
