asphyxiabywords
I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they're perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay
And true, it may seem like a stretch, but
Its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you're away when I am missing you to death
When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now,' they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now,' but we'll stay...

I tried my best to leave this all on your
Machine but the persistent beat it sounded
Thin upon listening
And that frankly will not fly. You will hear
The shrillest highs and lowest lows with
The windows down when this is guiding you home-The Postal Service

such a way with words..

bright eyes - First Day Of My Life


This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you had just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Then waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

a very very belated update. i am still alive, but not on the computer a lot. hopefully i will update again before another year passes but here goes. this band msged me on myspace and i think they are way rad. the song im posting has a very old school oasis vibe. if you have myspace you should all check them out (whoever still keeps up with this thing :P)

buddahead - when i fall

Don't you know that I cried in silence.
I was too afraid to be saved by the hands that held me.
I waited without hope.

Without you I lose myself.
I find it hard in cheap hotel with bleary eyes
And no one knows it.

When I fall, When I lose my head,
You're the one I call.
When I fall, When I bleed,
The one I need,
You're the one I want,
The one I call.

Can't you hear the voices humming madly
Somewhere in my head?
But instead of trying I'm just hiding.
Lost in my regret.

Without you I lose myself.
I find it hard in cheap hotel with bleary eyes
And no one knows it.

When I fall, When I lose my head,
You're the one I call.
When I fall, When I bleed,
The one I need,
You're the one I want,
The one I call.

I've dragged the past into the light.
I want to leave it here.
I've dragged the past into the light.
Come take me away from here.

I was walking for what seemed like forever,
when this old man said to me:
"you look a little parched, would you fancy a spot of tea?"

Well, I woke up just this side of grumpy,
and on the wrong side of the bed.
Saw myself staring back at me, and she said:
" damn you're still thirsty, and you hair still isn't quite red!"

Walking back on that dusty trail again,
with all those rude riders (gad!).
put money in the machine, waiting while it vends.
disappointed, I am, at all the rows of snack bars.

Thought this was the real deal this time,
where's my damn Aquafina?
I was all to wrong, come to find,
my dead horse, dancing ' round like a ballerina.

woke up from this twisted dream of mine, for real this time,
and that's the end because I'm so tired I haven't the mind to rhyme.

i got my howie day fan mail in today and inside was a cd with a few of his new songs live. i remember now why i joined his street team.

howie day - collide

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I'm quiet you know
You make a frist impression
I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to ryhme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

Mixtape - Butch Walker [22 Jul 2004|08:48pm]

vintagenightsky
i've been listening to this song a lot lately. issues with ex-boyfriends, and this song is kind of putting his perspective in my head. it's not making it easier, but it's a way to deal with it, i suppose.

You say hello, inside I'm screaming I love you
You say goodnight, in my mind
I'm sleeping next to you.
You drive away from my car crash of a heart
And I don't know...

But you gave me the best mixtape I have
And even all the bad songs ain't so bad
I just wish there was so much more than
that, about me and you..

You talk to him, and it burns me like the sun
You talk to her, and you say that you feel
Like he's the one
I talk to me, but you can't hear the pain I
Feel, you don't know..

'Cause you gave me the best mixtape I have
And even all the sad songs ain't so sad
I only wish that there was more than
That, about me and you..

Oh, don't turn around and say bye again
Yeah it crushes my head when you call me
Your friend and I'm not the same person
From back in the day in the back of the
Class that you thought was gay
No I can't find the words 'cause I lost them
The minute they fell out my mouth
And it's love and I'm in it, so give me your
Lips and just let me kiss 'em and let's
Get messed up and listen to possibly..

The best mixtape I have
And even all the bad songs ain't so bad
I just wish there was so much more than
That, about me and you

i honestly dont remember where i found out about this artist but i wrote her down. this happend to be the first song i downloaded by her. she is really good and i suggest you all check her out.

Jonatha Brooke - I'll Try

I am not a child now.
I can take care of myself.
I mustn't let them see me cry.
i'm fine
i'm fine.
i'm to tired to listen.
i'm to old to believe
all these childish stories.
there is no such thing as faith
& trust
& pixie dust.
i try but its so hard to believe.
i try but i can't see what you see.
i try
i try
i try.

my whole world is changing.
i don't know where to turn.
i can't leave you wating.
but i can't stay and watch the city burn.
ohh watch it burn.
cause I try
but it's so hard to believe.
i try but i can't see what you see.
I try
I try
i try & try
try to understand
the distance in between
the love i feel
the things i fear
and every single dream.

I can finally see it.
now i have to believe
all those precious stories.
All the world is made of faith
& trust
& pixie dust.
So i'll try
cause i finally believe.
i'll try cause
i can see what you see.
So i'll try
I'll try
to fly.

ben kweller, ben lee and ben folds? it hardly gets better than that.

the bens - just pretend

While I held you with our undry eyes
Have the years pass by, it's ok to cry
After all, in the end, just pretend
Well it's sticks and stones and broken homes
That taught us how to smile
After all, in the end, just pretend

There's a name that plays in my head like a song
All day long she's with me everyday
After all, in the end, just pretend

Everyone needs
Everyone needs
Everyone needs

If the sun can't shine, you'll be just fine
Looking to your mind, where you're free
After all, in the end, just pretend

Cause we hurt each other once before
Let's not do that again
After all, in the end, just pretend

And a voice so familiar wakes me up in the middle
She thinks I'm having a bad dream
After all, in the end, just pretend

Everyone needs
Everyone needs
Everyone needs

After all
It's the end

[ mood | angry ]

i'm really angry at this war right now. my boyfriend is overseas in kuwait (or iraq, i don't know how long he was supposed to stay in kuwait), and i got a phone call from him early this morning. it took him THREE F-ING TRIES to get a hold of me, and once i finally was able to talk to him, 2 minutes later the phone cut out.
i hate it. this song knows how angry i am. i'm glad FIF can still be my friend.


Five Iron Frenzy - Car

Imagine you held
So tight your best friend
Left him to fly
And never could reach him
Standing at the peak where two waves meet
Are you just behind the other side of music?
Peering like a flower never taught to grow
Someone fond of living always will remember

We are blessed, we endure
(I am blessed, I will endure)

Our eyes always looked
Dark and the same
What does he see
Who returns his smile?
And when Car's a sword its wit that stings
Now he will be used in our Father's army
Not as one who kills but one who always heals
Can I take his burden, who am I to follow?

One who travels knows too well
The panicked call from the truck stop
I held tight to the phone booth
Envisioning last night and Car's last mountain drive

embarassingly, i saw this artist's video in between episodes of sabrina the teenage witch on the n. she, on the other hand, is absolutely beautiful and has a phenomenal voice. i reccomend her to anyone, no matter what you're into. seriously, go check her out. www.mariamenamusic.com

Maria Mena - You're The Only One

Well I saw you with your hands above your head
Spinning around, trying not to look down
But you did, and you fell, hard on the ground
Then you stumbled around for a good ten minutes
And I said I'd never seen anyone look so dumb before
And you laughed and said I still know how to turn you on though

You're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I need

And I probably forgot to tell you this
Like that time I forgot to tell you about the scar
Remember how uncomfortable that made you feel?
See you're not what I expected
But you're the only one who knows how to handle me
And you're such a great kisser and I know that you'd agree

You're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I need

I hope you can forgive me for that time
When I put my hand between your legs
And said it was small
Cuz it's really not at all
I guess there's just a part of me that likes to bring you down
Just to keep you around
Cuz the day you realize how amazing you are
You're gonna leave me

You're the only one who
Holds my hair back when I'm drunk and gets sick
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I need

You're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I need

Exactly what I need

Well I saw you with your hands above your head
Spinning around, trying not to look down
But you did, and you fell, hard on the ground....

there really arent words to describe why im posting these lyrics so im just going to stick with them alone.

our lady peace - theif

I don't want to understand this horror
There's a weight in your eyes
I can't admit
Everybody ends up here in bottles
But the name tag's the last thing you wanted

As the world explodes
We fall out of it
But we can't let go
Because this will not go away
There's a house built out in space

I can't see that thief
That lives inside of your head
But I can be some courage at
The side of you bed
I don't know what's happening
And I can't pretend
But I can be your, be your

Someone help us understand
Who ordered this disgusting
Arrangement, time and the end
I don't want to hear who walked
On water, because the hallways are empty
And the clock ticks

As the world implodes
We fall into it
And we can't go home
Because this will not go away
There's a house built out in space

I can't see that thief
That lives inside of your head
But I can be some courage at
The side of you bed
I don't know what's happening
And I can't pretend

It's a long, long get away
It's a long, long get away
Make it home again
Make it home again
It's a long, long get away
It's a long, long get away

I can't see that thief
That lives inside of your head
But I can be some courage at
The side of you bed
I don't know what's happening
And I can't pretend
But I can be your, be your

i was listening to my travis cd on the bus yesterday and came across this song. i guess i never really payed attention to it much before but i discoverd i really like it. especially the lyrics. i think i listend to it on repeat for the entire way almost. on a side note. i really need some new music. being poor sucks

travis - slide show

Today is the day
For dancing and for singing
The birds in the tree and all
The bells are ringing
The sun in the sky
Is bright as bright as second light
Is bright oh God I hope I’m alright
Cause I’m gonna cry
Hold on hold on
Slow down slow down
You’re out of touch
Out of touch
Cause there is no design for life
There’s no devils haircut in my mind
There is not a wonderwall
To climb or step around
But there is a slideshow and it’s so slow
Flashing through my mind
Today was the day
But only for the first time
Hold on hold on
Slow down slow down
You’re out of touch
Out of touch
Cause there is no design for life
There’s no devils haircut in your mind
There is not a wonderwall
To climb or step around
But there is a slideshow and it’s so slow
Flashing through my mind
Today was the day
But only for the first time
I hope it’s not the last time

as cheesy and after school special as these lyrics sound, i really like this song. it really does have a good msg. life is only shitty if you see it that way. its much easier to hold on to the bad than to let it go. i'd much rather let go and be happy though. easier said than done but im working on it.

the calling - our lives

Is it love tonight
When everyone's dreaming
Of a better life
In this world
Divided by fear
We've gotta believe that
There's a reason we're here
Yeah, there's a reason we're here

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives

See the truth all around
Our faith can be broken
And our hands can be bound
But open our hearts and fill up the emptiness
With nothing to stop us
Is it not worth the risk?
Yeah, is it not worth the risk?

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives
Even if hope was shattered
I know it wouldn't matter
Cause these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives

We can't go on
Thinking it's wrong
To speak our minds
I've gotta let out what's inside

Is it love tonight
When everyone's dreaming
Can we get it right?
Yeah, well can we get it right?

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives
Even if hope was shattered
I know it wouldn't matter
Because these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives

i remember listening to this song when i was eleven.. laying on my bed in a dark room starring at the ceiling and crying. people think when you are eleven you have no cares in the world. if only they knew. even when things are going okay a person can still be depressed. this is one song that never got old to me.. even over the years.

Soul Asylum - Runaway Train

Call you up in the middle of the night
Like a firefly without a light
You were there like a blowtorch burning
I was a key that could use a little turning

So tired that I couldn't even sleep
So many secrets I couldn't keep
I promised myself I wouldn't weep
One more promise I couldn't keep

It seems no one can help me now,
I'm in too deep; there's no way out
This time I have really led myself astray

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile?
Make it somehow all seem worthwhile
How on earth did I get so jaded?
Life's mystery seems so faded

I can go where no one else can go
I know what no one else knows
Here I am just a-drownin' in the rain
With a ticket for a runaway train

And everything seems cut and dried,
Day and night, earth and sky,
Somehow I just don't believe it

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
A little out of touch, a little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain

Runaway train, never going back
Wrong way on a one-way track
Seems like I should be getting somewhere
Somehow I'm neither here nor there

Runaway train, never coming back
Runaway train, tearing up the track
Runaway train, burning in my veins
I run away but it always seems the same

Came in from a rainy Thursday on the avenue thought I heard you talking softly
I turned on the lights the TV and the radio but still I can't escape the ghost of you
What is happening to me crazy some would say
Where is the life that I recognize, gone away

And I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world I will learn to survive

Passion or coincidence once prompted you to say pride will tear us both apart
Well now pride's gone out the window cross the rooftops runaway
Left me in the vaccuum of my heart
What is happening to me crazy some will say where is my friend when I need you most gone away

But I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and grief
Fear today forgot tomorrow beside the news of holy war and holy need
Our's is just a little sorrowed talk, just blown away

And I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world I will learn to survive
Every world is my world (I will learn to survive)
Any world is my world (I will learn to survive)
Any world is my world, every world is our world, every world
