the list of wants By Scott James Prebble

I’m not a millionaire and I don’t ever plan to be,
I love all women but all I want is one to love me for everything I am.

I listen to Train when I’m sad, Pat seems to have a way with words,
And ride a train into the city when I’m bored.
I’m finding guitar a lot harder to learn than I thought it would be.
I don’t believe in fairies but don’t judge those that do.

I’d get a tattoo tomorrow but I’m scared the next day I’d change my mind.

I have pushed people away, people that were the most important to me at the time,
And I wake up and regret that, but I find it hard to say I’m sorry and I was wrong.
That I got scared, that they were too close and it was for their own good,
Or that I wasn’t sure if I was ready for what they were asking for at the time.

I don’t speak well, but I try the best with my limited capabilities.

My hands shake sometimes for no reason, and counting backwards helps,
I know I’m going to die young, like men in my family so I try and make the most of it.
I feel if I put my mind to it, I can really get somewhere, but I don’t know the direction,
And at this stage I don’t have my dream car to get me there.

I always believe that the last thoughts in my head at the end of the day are the truest,
I lay there and think for a few minutes before I fall asleep and it’s always with clarity.
But I seem to forget it by the time I wake up, so I should take a pen and paper to bed,
Or invent a hard drive for my mind so I can recall the exact words I need to say to you.

I don’t think I’m attractive & usually photoshop marks off my face and brighten my eyes.

I hate that I have hurt people in my life,
If you are reading this and I have hurt you, know, know that I regret it everyday,

I hate to sleep alone, I would much rather fall asleep with a beautiful naked body next to me.

I hate that people see me as complicated, I want to be seen as simple and generous.

I sleep naked.

I don’t think that camera’s make you a photographer, I have like 30 and I still think I struggle,
To me a photographer is the perfect balance of excellent ideas and being able to capture them.

I WANT someone to WANT to hold my hand.

I think I learn from my mistakes which I guess makes me one step ahead of most men,
I usually come up with witty retorts about an hour after I need them.
I think about giving up my passion everyday because I spend so much time on it, it drives me mad,
But I struggle on in the hope that I get good enough to really be proud of what I’ve done.

I hate when people fav my work and don’t comment.

I ride a motorbike, and wear jeans almost everyday of my life.

I am a hopeless flirt, and have been told my kisses are to die for.

I love the sound of a shutter going off on a film camera.

I miss long hair. I do love it so. Now I get told to keep it "neat" which seems to equate to short...

The beautiful wild backdrop matches your look in this one Scott. The photo alone would have been very powerful, but with your prose it is doubly so.

I know this is probably old history, but this photo and your words touched me. Sorta reminds me of The Perfect Drug film clip by Nine Inch Nails if you've seen it.

Keep up with the guitar mate - it is one of the few things that keeps me sane at times.

In my year away from DA i missed this photo apparently.

Your artist comments just allowed me to get to know you even more as a person. Know this much mr prebble, if i ever come to Austrailia which i do plan on doing, i would love the chance to be able to meet you. As much as you would tower over me cause im all of 5 foot 5 and you are well over 6 feet it would be awesome to meet the man behind the camera.

Kudos on being so... Vulnerable and open to people here.

Thanks for this.

The shutter on a camera is a beautiful sound, second only to rain on a tin roof. I love hearing how each camera sounds different, and the whirr from film cameras.

Oh yes, it's an amazing thing.

It actually made me cry when I read that :(
I think I know what you mean... :no:
I.. I'm so sorry not being a cute girl in your area, I'd sleep beside you every night of your life :petting:
I think you're truly amazing, I often get angry at myself because I can't do what YOU can do (Well, yet :P)
I'd really love to follow you in your life like a month or two, to have you as a mentor, a teacher...

Oh, by the way, pretty cool picture of you ;)
