I wish I could sing. I wish I could play bass. I wish I had a band. Check out my blog of musical wishes.
Which btw is not about demons or tulle.

I can say I’ll hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for the things that I believe….

I’ll make the effort, love can last forever
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth
Tomorrow’s just an excuse, tomorrow’s just an excuse…

Will I wake up, is it a dream I made up?
No, I guess, it’s reality what will change us
Or will we mess up our only chance
To connect with a dream?

Say a prayer for me
I’m buried by the sound
In a world of human wreckage
I’m lost and I’m found and I can’t touch the ground…

Daughter,
If You Leave

I realized today that I had never posted this song, only some lyrics. It’s lyrically amazing and her voice is haunting and soul grabbing.

Well I’ve lost it all, I’m just a silhouette,
I’m a lifeless face that you’ll soon forget,
And my eyes are damp from the words you left,
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest….

Limb by limb and tooth by tooth
Tearing up inside of me
Every day every hour
I wish that I was bullet proof

Wax me

Mould me
Heat the pins and stab them in
You have turned me into this
Just wish that it was bullet proof…..

This is a repost from about 2 years ago. I posted below what I wrote about some of better covers of this song. I was reminded of it when KOL covered it last saturday at the show in Boston, and I started singing it today when I looked down and realized I had two different shoes on while out doing errands. This song never gets old.

With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah.
Your head will collapse
But there’s nothing in it
And you’ll ask yourself

Where is my mind?”

I think that I could listen to this song a hundred times a day and never get sick of it. I recently realized just how many covers of this song there are. So I decided to listen to as many as I could today. Here are my favorites so far, but I may need to adjust as I find more that I like.

  1. Kings of Leon - Live at Bonnaroo 2010 and Boston 2014. Most like the original.
  2. Yoav (featuring Emily Browning) - This song I have listened to for about a week on repeat. Emily’s voice is haunting. It grabs your soul.
  3. Nada Surf - I haven’t heard a Nada Surf cover that I don’t like. 
  4. The Vaccines & Noah and The Whale - These two bands combined makes for an interesting take.
  5. Trampled by Turtles - They are starting to grow on me a little. This version is def different.

I’m crazy about this girl. Stumbled upon Octahate one day and have been a loyal fan since. She’s coming….so take notice. She’s a fresh real pop voice.

Love’s a fucking bitch

You I really need
Do you need me 
Too I believe

Coldest winter for me
No sun is shining anymore
The only thing I feel is pain
Caused by absence of you
Suspense controlling my mind
I cannot find the way out of here

I want you by my side
So that I never feel alone again….
