Lazy Eye//Silversun Pickups

My favorite part is when he screams, “locked and loaded” ~sigh~

*2006, Carnavas

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life
But it’s not quite right

And this ‘real’
It’s impossible, if possible, at whose blind word
So clear but so unheard

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this silence all night long
It’s just a matter of time

To appear sad
With the same old decent lazy eye fixed to rest on you
Aim free but so untrue

Everyone’s so intimately rearranged
Everyone’s so focused clearly with such shine

Everyone’s so intimately prearranged
Everyone’s so focused clearly with such shine

Locked and loaded
Still the same old decent lazy eyes fixed through your gaze
That’s why I said I relate
I said we really need to fight to relate

It’s the room, the sun, and the sky
The room, the sun, and the sky

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this moment

Movin’ On Up//Primal Scream

*1991, Screamadelica

I was blind, now I can see
You made a believer out of me
I was blind, now I can see
You made a believer out of me

I’m movin’ on up now
Getting out of the darkness
My light shines on
My light shines on
My light shines on

I was lost, now I’m found
I believe in you, I’ve got no bounds
I was lost, now I’m found
I believe in you, I got no bounds

I’m getting out of darkness
My light shines on
I’m getting out of darkness
My light shines on

Baby//Devendra Banhart

*2009, What Will We Be

Baby, I finally know what I’m going after
I’m learning to let in all the laughter
Holy moly, you’re so funny
You crack me up, you crack me up
Look out for dreams that keep returning
‘Cause magic in the whim yearning
You feel it, you want it
The way I want you, babe
Traveling by choo-choo train
We know where
We just don’t know when
Like some everlasting onion, that I love
Never heard a better bad joke said out loud
You flip, flap and I wild out
Can you believe it?
I can’t believe it but it’s true
You’re giving eighty billion years of giggling
A whole new world to live in
But this one’s real, this one’s real
This one’s real Like a bow-tied kangaroo
You be one and I’ll be one too
Play it goofy or play it cool
I don’t mind

Everything that happened
You know it don’t mean a thing to us
‘Cause so much is going to happen

Because you showed me
A sunset overflowing
But who cares where it’s going
As long as you’re next to me

Days//The Drums

These lyrics…yes.

*2011, Portamento

And now days go by and I never needed you
And now days go by and I never needed you
And I worked so hard and I killed myself
And you broke my bones and I soothed my soul

But now days go by
and I never needed you
But now days go by
and I never needed you

And I could have been your mother
and I could have been your sister
Be your twin brother
I just wanted to be, I just wanted to be

And now days go by
and I never needed you
but now days go by
and I never needed you

We were just wasting time [x6]

And now days go by
and I never needed you
but now days go by
and I never needed you

but now days go by
and I never needed you
but now days go by
and I never needed you

Who Can Say//The Horrors

*2009, Primary Colours

I never meant for you to get hurt
And how I tried, oh how I tried
I could never give you just what you deserved
Another man would surely learn

I know these words
They only serve to twist the knife
But I’ll strive to make them heard
Maybe it’s better now I’ve gone away
Maybe it’s not, oh who can say

And though it’s hard for me to say
I know you’re better off this way

And when I told her
I didn’t love her anymore, she cried
And when I told her
Her kisses were not like before, she cried

And when I told her
Another girl had caught my eye, she cried
And then I kissed her
With a kiss that could only mean goodbye

And though it’s hard for me to say
Maybe you’re better off this way
And though it’s hard for me to say
I know you’re better off this way

Get away, get away
Get away, get away
Get away, get away

Something Changed//Pulp

~swoon~

*1996, Different Class

I wrote this song two hours before we met.
I didn’t know your name or what you looked like yet.
Oh I could have stayed at home and gone to bed.
I could have gone to see a film instead.
You might have changed your mind and seen your friends
Life could have been very different but then something changed.
Do you believe that there’s someone up above?
Does he have a timetable directing acts of love?
Why did I write this song on that one day?
Why did you touch my hand and softly say.
Stop asking questions that don’t matter anyway.
Just give us a kiss to celebrate here today something changed.
When we woke up that morning we had no way of knowing
That in a matter of hours we’d change the way we were going.
Where would I be now if we’d never met.
Would I be singing this song to someone else instead I dunno
But like you said something changed.

Mr. November//The National

lol, longest mic cord ever.

*2005, Alligator

I wish that I believed in fate, I wish I didn’t sleep so late
I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders
I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders
I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders

I’m the new blue-blood
I’m the great white hope
I’m the new blue-blood

I won’t fuck us over, I’m Mr. November
I’m Mr. November, I won’t fuck us over
I won’t fuck us over, I’m Mr. November
I’m Mr. November, I won’t fuck us over

Belt it out Matt, belt it out.

Microphone//Coconut Records

*2009, Davy

Slow down, you are out of control
One of us is right, and one of us is wrong
And, I know that you’re not coming home
There’s nowhere to park, after it gets dark, yeah
Can’t tell what I want when you sing
So keep it to yourself, I haven’t missed anything

You are my voice, my microphone
You are my voice, so take me on
You are my voice

Slow down, you are out of control
It could be so easy if it didn’t feel so wrong
And, warmed up and your hair is too long
What if I was young? What if I was younger?
And so, finally she showed
I never should have asked, it was a long time ago

You are my voice, my microphone
You are my voice, so take me on
You are my voice
You are my voice

You are my voice, my microphone
You are my voice my microphone
You are my voice, so take me on
You are my voice, my microphone

You are my voice
You are my voice
You are my voice

One of us is right, and one of us is wrong
One of us is right, and one of us is wrong

The Last Goodbye//The Kills

*2011, Blood Pressures

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t rely on a dime a day love that don’t go anywhere
I learn to cry for someone else
I can’t get by on an odds and ends love that don’t ever match up
I heard all you said and I took it to heart

I won’t forget I swear
I have no regrets for the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where

Can’t quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it with my own two hands?
I heard all you said and I love you to death
I heard all you said don’t say anything

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t survive on a half-hearted love that will never be whole

Gahhhhh, luv this song! Now I’m just gonna cry my eyes out.

Is it weird that I find Alison & Jamie both equally hot?

Halah//Mazzy Star

*1990, She Hangs Brightly

Well I think I see another side
Maybe just another light that shines
And I looked over now through the door
And I still belong to no one else
Maybe I hold you to blame
For all the reasons that you left
And close my eyes till I see your surprise
And you’re leaving before my time
Baby won’t you change your mind?
Surely don’t stay long
I’m missing you now
It’s like I told you
I’m over you somehow
Before I close the door
I need to hear you say goodbye
Baby won’t you change your mind?
I guess that hasn’t changed someone
Maybe nobody else could understand
I guess that you believed you are a woman
And that I am someone else’s man
But just before I see that you leave
I want you to hold onto things that you said
Baby I wish I were dead
Surely don’t stay long
I’m missing you now
It’s like I told you
I’m over you somehow
Before I close the door
I need to hear you say goodbye
Baby won’t you change your mind?

So hauntingly beautiful. I have a Hope Sandoval story…I once sat next to her whilst waiting for the Jesus & Mary Chain backstage. She was dating William Reid at the time and I remember her being awfully shy and quiet. My friend was going bananas because he had a huge crush on her and I got to sit and make small chit chat with her.
