Have never been enthusiastic about watermelons. They do seem to be just large vegetables filled with water. Though so many different dishes could be cooked using them. Essayforcollege is helping me now describing how to use watermelon in tough conditions (like in space, on the island, etc.).

Just a smile and the rain is gone Can hardly believe it, yeah. There's an angel standing next to me. Reaching for my heart Just a smile and there's no way back .Can hardly believe it, yeah But there's an angel calling me. Reaching for my heart I know that I'll be okay now. This time, it's real I lay my love on you It's all I wanna do Every time I breathe I feel brand new You open up my heart Show me all your love and walk right through As I lay my love on you.
