los campesinos!

the last man standing is a girl
- ...and we exhale and roll our eyes in unison

four sweaty boys with guitars tell me nothing about my life
- ...and we exhale and roll our eyes in unison

it takes an educated guess to see i like you a little at best
- ...and we exhale and roll our eyes in unison

&& we exhale
&& we roll our eyes
&& we do these things in unison

&& woe is me
&& woe is you
&& woe is us, together
- ...and we exhale and roll our eyes in unison

walk out onto your front lawn and face into the rain,
shout into the wind this'll never be the same
- a heat rash in the shape of the show me state; or letters from me to charlotte


don't think my heart ain't quaking, shaking, breaking open
but it's what i must do
if i want you
- c is the heavenly option


i can't believe i chose the mountains every time you chose the sea...
- coda: a burn scar in the shape of the sooner state
broke down laughing and screaming for more,
but if this changed your life, did you have one before?
- i warned you: do not make an enemy of me

and the last time that you tried listening to music, and reading fiction at the same time,
you never finished the chapter,
but you finished the song with your chin on your knees like you belong
- international tweexcore underground

absence makes the heart grow fonder
fondness makes the absence longer
length loses my interest,
i'm a realist, i'm insatiable
- we are beautiful, we are doomed

vampire weekend.

through the pain, i always tell the truth
- oxford comma

how am i supposed to pretend
i never want to see you again?

- campus

Forget the protocol
I'll take your hand
Right in mine

- i stand corrected

 

Here comes a feeling you thought you'd forgotten
Chairs to sit and sidewalks to walk on
Ooh you had it but oh no you lost it
Lookin back you shouldn't have fought it

- horchata

Half of me is the gasoline
But the other half’s the surf

- holiday
And if it’s all a curse
And we’re just getting worse
Baby, please don’t lose your faith in the good earth

- california english

You're not a victim,
But neither am I,
Nostalgic for garbage,
Desperate for time

- taxi cab
Unsentimental,
Driving around,
Sure of myself,
Sure of it now,
You stand this close to me,
Like the future was suppose to be

- taxi cab

Every dollar counts
And every morning hurts
We mostly work to live
Until we live to work

She said,
“You know
There’s nowhere else to go”
But changing roles
It struck me that the two of us could run

Worlds away from cars
And all the stars and bars

- run
Honey, with you
And a battered radio

We could try

- run

When I was 17
I had wrists like steel
And I felt complete
And now my body fades
Behind my brass charade
And I’m obsolete

- giving up the gun
I had a feeling once
That you and I
Could tell each other everything

- i think ur a contra

between the bars | elliott smith

 

drink up, baby, stay up all night

the things you could do, you won't but you might
the potential you'll be, that you'll never see
the promises you'll only make

drink up with me now and forget all about the pressure of days
do what I say and I'll make you okay and drive them away
the images stuck in your head

people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
that push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

drink up, baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars where I'm seeing you
there with your hands in the air, waiting to finally be caught

drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
keep you apart deep in my heart separate from the rest
where I like you the best and keep the things you forgot

the people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
that push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

the nicest thing

The Nicest Thing | Kate Nash


All I know is that you're so nice
You're the nicest thing I've seen
I wish that we could give it a go
See if we could be something

I wish I was your favourite girl
I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world
I wish my smile was your favourite kind of smile
I wish the way that I dressed was your favourite kind of style

I wish you couldn't figure me out
But you always wanna know what I was about
I wish you'd hold my hand
When I was upset
I wish you'd never forget
The look on my face when we first met

I wish you had a favourite beauty spot
That you loved secretly
'Cause it was on a hidden bit
That nobody else could see
Basically, I wish that you loved me
I wish that you needed me
I wish that you knew when I said two sugars,
Actually I meant three

I wish that without me your heart would break
I wish that without me you'd be spending the rest of your nights awake
I wish that without me you couldn't eat
I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep

Look, all I know is that you're the nicest thing I've ever seen
And I wish that we could see if we could be something
Yeah I wish that we could see if we could be something

the truth

while you were sleeping, i figured out everything,
i was constructed for you, and you were molded for me
now i feel your name, coursing through my veins

you shine so bright
it's insane, you put the sun to shame

- lullaby | the spill canvas


and when you cry a piece of my heart dies
knowing that i may have been the cause
if you were to leave and fulfill someone else's dreams
i think i might totally be l o s t
- the girl | city and colour


as you fall fast asleep with your head on my chest
i watch you breathe in and out as you're finding your rest
i need this night, yes it's late, but the morning will come
- say so | my favorite highway


on the good, the bad, the ugly
the smiles, the laughs, the funny,
or all the things we put each other through
it's for you, for you, for you.

you make me happy, whether you know it or not
we should be happy, that's what i said from the start
i am so happy, knowing you are the one
that i want for the rest of my days
for the rest of my days
you're all of my days
- happy | nevershoutnever!


maybe we will be everything we say
maybe all that we dream will fade to grey
either way, i will stay
with you

- with you | i fight dragons


you feel like h e a v e n when we touch
i guess for me this is enough
- seventeen forever | metro station

 

&& in case you,
&& in case you were wondering, you are like a
sunset to me
you're all kinds of beautiful as you end my day
and you sweetly retire as *stars*
chase you away
- sunsets and car crashes | the spill canvas


we're crashing into the unknown
we're lost in this, but it feels like home
first time | lifehouse
 

she says I’ve got the best beating heart in the world
&& it makes her want to twirl around until she hit’s the ground
- best beating heart | sing it loud

 

somewhere under water maybe you could find my heart
that's where i threw it after you had torn it out
whoa-oh! three days ago
the doctor, he said so, he told me every skyline and every night spent alone
are tearing me apart
- holly hox, forget me nots | saves the day


i need your lovin' like sunshine

- everybody's gotta learn sometime | beck

 

tell 'em anything you want to,
just don't tell 'em all the truth,
yeah don't tell 'em all the truth,
i still need you,
yeah, that's the truth,
i still love you,
baby that's the truth.
- the truth | jason aldean

i would dial the numbers
just to listen to your breath
  i would stand inside my hell
and hold the hand of death
you don't know how far i'd go
to ease this precious ache
you don't know how much i'd give
or how much i can take

- come to my window | melissa ethridge

i like you so very much

Sleepy Tigers | Her Space Holiday

 

Oh I like you so very much so much in fact I gotta wake you up

It’s not that I have words to speak
I just wanna see you looking at me
In a way, that states
In an hour when the sun comes up
We’re gonna put on our shoes we’re gonna shake the dust
Open the door with your brand new key
We won’t be afraid of being sweet to ourselves

Or anybody! anybody else!

Oh I miss you so very much so much in fact i gotta call you up
It’s not that I have news to bring
I just wanna make your telephone ring

So it shows and you know
In a week when I fly back home
We’re gonna jump in bed and be all alone

you’ll make biscuits and I’ll make tea
We’ll curl up close and then fall asleep
To the sound… of no one else no else around


And if Ive learned anything at all
In this short life of mine (it’s this)…
If you hear that joy has come to town
Track it down, take a picture and tape it to your eyes

Oh I love you so very much so much in fact I'm gonna switch it up
I'm gonna take this room that I built for fun
And burn down the walls in front of everyone
So they see, you and me
Dancing in our sleepy clothes
With two big smiles and a bowl of hope!
That we’ll drink down like ginger tea
The heat will help us forget everything
That you and I, that you and I have seen

And if Ive learned anything at all
In this short life of mine (it’s this)…
If you hear that joy has come to town
Track it down, take a picture and tape it to your eyes

Looking for Holes
- ani difranco

 

I am looking for the holes

the holes in your jeans
because I want to know
are they worn out in the seat
or are they worn out in the knees


there are so many ways to wear
what we've got before it's gone
to make use of what is there
I don't wear anything I can't wipe my hands on

do your policies fit between the headlines
are they written in newsprint, are they distant
mine are crossing an empty parking lot
they are a woman walking home
at night
alone
they are six string that sing
and wood that hums against my hipbone

we can't afford to do anyone harm
because we owe them our lives
each breath is recycled from someone else's lungs

are enemies are the very air in disguise

you can talk a great philosophy
but if you can't be kind to people
every day
it doesn't mean that much to me
it's the little things you do
the little things you say

it's the love you give along the way


when we patch things up
they say a job well done
but when we ask why
where did the rips come from
they say we are subversive
and extreme, of course
we are just trying to track a problem to its source

because we know we can't sit back
and let people come to harm
we owe them our lives
each breath is recycled from someone else's lungs
our enemies are the very air
our enemies are the air

we are looking for the holes
the holes in your jeans
because we want to know
are they worn out in the seat

or are they worn out in the knees

i think of you

when i wake up, in the morning
you look so good, you look so good
when i get up, and i'm yawning
you look so good, you look so good, to me
- eskimo joe [wake up]

just open your eyes
just open your eyes 
&& see that life is beautiful.
will you swear on your life,
that no one will cry at my funeral?
- sixx:AM [life is beautiful]

i've been drinking more and eating less.
it's a mess without you laying here.
it's a mess without you laying here.
i know it can be all right, if i just wait it out and try to rest.
it's a mess without you laying here.
i'm a mess, i'm a mess, i am a mess.
- the sleeping [3 cigarettes]

but i think of you whenever life gets me down
i think of you whenever you're not around
you rest your bones
somewhere far from my house
yeah, but you still pull me home
- a fine frenzy [think of you]

and i say 'baby, yes i feel stupid to call you, but i'm lonely'
- maria mena [sorry]

&& i meant, every word i said
when i said that i love you, i meant that i'd love you forever
&& i'm gonna keep on loving you
'cause it's the only thing i wanna do
i don't wanna sleep
i just wanna keep on loving you

- reo speedwagon [keeon on loving you]

come now don't worry about the things you'll do next week
for just this once we can pretend, it's you and me
&& and everything the f a l l s between the lines won't mean a thing
so take my hand, we'll run away
from everything, from everything, from everything, from everything
- test your reflex [thinking of you]
