I have to work tomorrow, but it's still Friday. And Friday seems like the perfect time to talk about music!
There are some certain songs I've had on replay, at least in my head, for a while...and these are the songs and my favorite part of the lyrics. Please feel free to make this into a discussion and tell me what lyrics are running through the radio in your heads.
Snow Patrol: Hands Open
I wanna hear you laugh like you really mean it
Collapse into me, tired with joy
(as a result of this song, I actually requested a Sufjan Stevens CD from the library...oh, and I did sort of collapse into a certain someone tired with joy last weekend - it was awesome)
She said I think I'll go to Boston...
I think I'll start a new life,
I think I'll start it over, where no one knows my name,
I'll get out of California, I'm tired of the weather...
I think that I'm just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind...
I think I need a sunrise, I'm tired of the sunset,
(not that far off from my own feelings when I fled to Boston. I truly believe everyone goes to Boston -- or to something that is Boston to them -- at some point in their life. Boston saved me, and this song makes me somewhat nostalgic)
Regina Spektor: That Time
Hey remember that time when my favorite colors were pink and green
Hey remember that month when I only ate boxes of tangerines
So cheap and juicy, tangerines
Hey remember that time when I would only read Shakespeare
Hey remember that other time when I would only read the backs of cereal boxes
(It's actually something of a sad song, once you get to the end, but at the beginning, it makes me think of a) all the weird things I do and b)all the weird things I don't do)
Michael Buble: Under My Skin
Don't you know little fool, you'll never win
Why not use your mentality, come on step up to reality
But each time I do, just the thought of you
Makes me stop before I begin
'Cause I've got you under my skin
(Uh, yeah. No relationship is perfect, and when someone is burrowed in under the skin, you might as well give in)
The Fray: She Is
It's all up in the air and we stand still to see what comes down
I don't know where it is, I don't know when, but I want you around
When it falls into place with you and I, we go from if to when
Your side and mine are both behind it's indication
This is gonna bring me clarity
This'll take the heart right out of me
The Beatles: Let It Be
And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
(In other words: Calm down, things will be alright...whatever that means)
There are more, but I'll save those for next week...
