Inspired by a conversation I had with D a couple of weeks ago, here are some lyrics that I very much identify with and/or invoke strong feelings within me:
I want to be the girl with the most cake.
Doll Parts – Hole
If I knew just the pin to hold in I’d build walls and you know, you know I would.
Open Up – The Dead Weather.
The future is no place to place your better days.
Cry Freedom – Dave Matthews Band.
Sometimes I think that I’m bigger than the sound.
Cheated Hearts – Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Hey, but I don’t care ’cause sometimes, I said sometimes I hear my voice,
And it’s been here…silent all these years.
Silent All These Years – Tori Amos
Well I’ll fall right in to keep you out. I’d like to tell you all about it.
Turn Into – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Ok I’ll admit. I’m not innocent. I did everything and I would again.
Graveyard Whistling – Nothing But Thieves
I wish I could buy back the woman you stole.
Y Control – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Well, maybe I’m a crook for stealing your heart away
Yeah, maybe I’m a crook for not caring for it
Yeah, maybe I’m a bad, bad, bad, bad person
Well, baby, I know.
Love Love Love – Of Monsters And Men
I don’t know what I’m doing, don’t know, should I change my mind?
I can’t decide, there’s too many variations to consider
No thing I do don’t do no thing but bring me more to do
It’s true, I do imbue my blue unto myself, I make it bitter
On The Bound – Fiona Apple
My hopes are so high,
that your kiss might kill me.
So won’t you kill me,
so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury,
or wear as jewelery,
which ever you prefer.
Hands Down – Dashboard Confessional
