Challenge #58  
This is a canceled challenge from back in May that I'd like to try again.

You may use any Maura pictures you'd like. This is a lyrical challenge, so your icons will include text from the song under the cut. Guidelines:

-You may enter up to three icons.
-Use any Maura pictures you want, but use each picture only once, for variety's sake.
-Your text must include at least three consecutive words from the song. Tiny text does not count; we must be able to read it.
-There are picture resources on the left sidebar of the main page of the community.
-You have one week to submit your icons. The deadline is Sunday, Oct. 28 at 6:00pm EST extended to Sunday, Nov. 4 at 6:00pm EST.

She by Elvis Costello

May be the face I can't forget
A trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
May be the chill that autumn brings
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day.

May be the beauty or the beast
May be the famine or the feast
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell
She may be the mirror of my dreams
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell

She who always seems so happy in a crowd
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry
She may be the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows of the past
That I'll remember till the day I die

May be the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I'll care for through the rough and ready years
Me I'll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is

She, she, she

And for some extra inspiration, here's the song uploaded to box.net (you can download, listen, or both): She - Elvis Costello
