  • In my mind

    All these trouble seem to find

    A place to call their own

    I dont wanna do this alone

    You know I’m tryin

    To let you know

    How I want all this to go

    Down


    I’m running out of room to say

    All I need to say


    And baby this ain’t really home

    I know I’ve got a long long way to go

    I know you’re always writing home to me


    And I dont wanna be alone

    When the train stops running pllease

    Dont leave

    Im tryina say all these things deep inside of me

  • Como eu pude um dia me apaixonar por você?

    Como eu pude um dia me envolver com alguém assim?

    Tão diferente de mim

    Tão nem aí pra sonhar

    Porque tem que ser assim?

    Bem que pudia mudar…

    Se é errando que se aprende, eu aprendi com você

    Só se sabe o que é bom quando conhece o ruim

    Graças a Deus teve fim

    Viver sofrendo não dá

    Faça um favor pra mim ?

    Nem venha me procuraaaaaaar.

    Não perco mais um dia de sol

    Não deixo que a tua sombra me assuste

    Nem pense que eu fiquei na pior

    Não vem me procurar

    Desilude

    Você me entristeceu sem saber

    Eu tive que mudar foi preciso

    Teu segredo roubou o meu sorriso

  • There was a tale, 

    A man who loved a girl

    Long ship with sails 

    Along the water’s edge

    Pretty Irish maiden

    The focus of his quest

    The burning curse for him 


    Come to me now 

    Twelve friends you’ll bring 

    to dine with me

    and twelve of mine as well

    We’ll leave all our weapons 

    behind so you can tell

    you’re safe with me 


    Later that night 

    The sky was filled with stars

    The Ladies came 

    unto his hall great 

    But they hid their faces 

    Behind veils of lace

    Quite a feast they shared 


    Ladies, my dears, 

    Would you be so kind 

    As to remove 

    The masks you hide behind 

    For it would be nice

    To see your true design 

    They raised their hands 


    And they revealed 

    That they were not maidens 

    But full grown men 

    To kill the Vikings strong

    And they slaughtered them all

     Killing all but one, 

    The man who loved a girl 


    And he was tied

    Tied in chains of steel

    They then threw him 

    In the Black Lake 

    And he learned his lesson 

    Not to trust sweet words

    From pretty Irish girls 


    There was a tale

    A man who loved a girl 

    Long ships with sails

    Along the water’s edge

    Pretty Irish maiden

    The Focus of his quest 

    The burning curse for him

  • Songs of 2019

    October 14, 2019

    Speaking of songs to play on repeat:

    Good Thing feat. Kehlani by Zedd

    image

    An anthem for those that adore the single life, that don’t need a partner to complete them, that don’t necessarily crave the life plan of settling down, getting married, and having kids, Good Thing is the kind of song you play entirely too loud and listen to while you strut down the street, going where ever it is that you feel like going.

    It ekes power and emits strength. It reminds you to be what you need and unapologetically who you are. It tells us not to settle, and to be happy how we want to be happy. It throws off the constraints of what society expects from us and sends us on our merry way, ready to be however we want with an intoxicating beat and melody by our side.

    It lets us find strength in feeling strong and beautiful and sexy without expectations. It shows us the joy of doing what you want when you want, without really having to care about someone else’s opinion. It’s a selfish kind of self-love–but I’m of the firm belief that we need that sometimes.

    It’s easy to lose yourself–to become entombed by societal expectation and overrun by the importance of who you’ve chosen to attach yourself to. This song peels that all back, strips it away until only you are left behind. And then Kehlani swoops in with her gorgeous vocals and tells you how absolutely fucking awesome you are.

    This song is about loving yourself. And I can 100% get behind that.

  • Songs of 2019

    October 13, 2019

    I am really into remixes and covers lately (blame Spotify–it is one hundred percent their fault) so it’s really no surprise that I chose another one to talk about today:

    Don’t Dream It’s Over Covered/remixed by KO

    image

    A modern take on an absolute classic of a song, this pop/techno/dance version of Don’t Dream It’s Over has literally been on repeat for me since I discovered it. It is the kind of song that makes you feel like you’re walking on sunshine, like you are falling in love, like you are on the verge of something indescribably amazing.

    This is the kind of song that plays during those scenes in the movies where the character starts out walking down the street, burdened by their problems before they settle into resolve and slowly begin to run, moving faster and faster until they disappear where the end of the road meets the horizon. It is the kind of music you drive just a little too fast to; the kind of song that makes you heart feel like it can soar–like everything is going to be just fine.

    It’s even possible that I like this song more than the original–which is terrible, I know–but I can’t help. This song has a beat that makes you want to dance, a rhythm that demands you participate, a vocal quality that makes you want to sing along as loud as you possibly can. It begins slow but builds in intensity until you feel like you are at the height of something–of feeling, of living; whatever it is you dream of.

    It is just absolutely breathtaking from start to finish–so if you are looking for an older song brought to the modern era, start here. If you want something familiar but also unknown, gives this a try. Something to steal you heart while it cycles on repeat?

    Press play.

    How Do You Sleep? Covered by John Tucker

    image

    A slow and heartbreaking cover of an iconic song, How Do You Sleep? stumbled into my life via Spotify Discover (like so many Songs of 2019 have) and I have not been the same since.

    Tucker’s tone is glorious and rich and deep–it hooks you from the first note and draws you so deeply into the story of the song that it instantly gets the creative half of my brain churning.

    It absolutely emits this hopeless, heartbroken vibe that begs for its story to be told; to be understood. And there is something about the languid, steady version of this song that just ensnares me–and I’m not entirely sure what it is. It could be that despite it’s softness it is filled with an undeniable sense of urgency–of the the threads holding something together coming unraveled far too quickly for it to be fixed before it snaps entirely. It could be the sadness of a heart cracking, and then slowly continuing to fissure until the pieces come apart. But the truth is that I don’t know–and maybe that’s what draws me in the most.

    Radio Ga Ga by Queen

    image

    It just goes without saying that everything Queen did was amazing. From the first song to the last, they shaped the future of music, inspired a generation, and went down in history with a flare unlike any other.

    I am still shook from Bohemian Rhapsody (the movie, not the song–though I guess the song, too). The end of that movie–the Live Aid performance–is so intoxicating that it emotionally sucks me in every time. And when they roll into this song, it feels like the scene catches fire; like your heart begins to lift high enough that you might be able to fly. It’s that anticipation you feel as a rollercoaster crests the top of its highest hill, when you can look out and see the entire theme park, the highway stretched out for miles, and the world as it bustles on–and then you fall.

    The drumbeats of this song echo the pounding of your heart, and you are swamped with this unmistakable and unexplainable happiness. It is this inherent belief that everything is going to be okay, that life will blast past you filled with sunshine if you choose to let it in and feel every moment of it.

    This song is that hope, that memory, that belief. It’s why we play it as loud as it can go, why an entire stadium screamed the words to this song at one of the largest performances in the world. It is bottled joy and the swelling of your heart as you chase everything that is yet to come.

    And I love it.
