Happy

So what if it hurts me
So what if I break down
So what if this world just throws me off the edge
My feet run out of ground
I gotta find my place
I wanna hear my sound
Don’t care about all the pain in front of me
Cause I’m just trying to be happy
Just wanna be happy

Something to hold onto

while I wrestle with demons and appetites, I cling to you

(I’m trying futilely to keep you on the other side of my my walls. Where is this thrilling, unpredictable path you are leading us down? Where is it leading my weary heart?)


Fuckin Perfect

I have fallen in love with this song. When I sing it, I feel like I am singing to that insecure, lost girl inside of me and singing this is a reminder to her that she is fuckin perfect.

Made a wrong turn, once or twice.
Dug my way out, blood and fire.
Bad decisions, that’s alright.
Welcome to my silly life.
Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood.
Miss ‘No way, it’s all good’, it didn’t slow me down.
Mistaken, always second guessing, underestimated.
Look I’m still around.

Pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel.
Like you’re less than fuckin’ perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel, like you’re nothing.
You’re fuckin’ perfect to me!

You’re so mean, when you talk, about yourself you were wrong.
Change the voices, in your head, make them like you instead.
So complicated, look happy, you’ll make it!
Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game.
It’s enough! I’ve done all I can think of.
Chased down all my demons, i’ve seen you do the same.

Woah ohh, pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel.
Like you’re less than fuckin’ perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel, like you’re nothing.
You’re fuckin’ perfect to me.

The whole world’s scared so I swallow the fear.
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer.
So cool in line, and we try try try, but we try too hard and it’s a waste of my time.
Done looking for the critics, cause they’re everywhere.
They don’t like my jeans, they don’t get my hair.
Exchange ourselves, and we do it all the time.
Why do we do that? Why do I do that?

Why do I do that?

Yeah, oh, oh baby, pretty baby!
Pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel.
Like you’re less than fuckin’ perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel.
Like you’re nothing, you’re fuckin’ perfect to me yeahhh.
You’re perfect, you’re perfect!
Oh pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel.
Like you’re less than fuckin’ perfect.
Pretty please, if you ever ever feel, like you’re nothing.
You are perfect to me…


Wanting comes in waves

 

Oh yes, the wanting comes in waves…


Anthem

…There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in…

 


Arcade Fire: Suburbs

I’ve been a fan of Arcade Fire for a few years now and have been waiting for an opportunity to see them in concert. I own all of their albums, Neon Bible being my favorite, followed by Funeral. I downloaded their newest album, Suburbs, as soon as it was released, but never really got a chance to get a thorough listen. Suburbs has just won Album of the Year and it is about time I gave some real quality time listening to it… and undoubtedly I’m sure I will love it. Already found one song I love off the album, Ready to Start, but mostly because of personal reasons. I really like the sound of Half Light I & II.

Businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
And I guess I’ll just begin again
You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

All the kids have always known
That the emperor wears no clothes
But to bow down to them anyway
Is better than to be alone

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now you’re knocking at my door
Saying please come out with us tonight
But I would rather be alone
Than pretend I feel alright

If the businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
Then I guess I’ll just begin again
You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now I’m Ready to Start

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now I’m Ready to Start

Now I’m Ready to Start
I would rather be wrong
Than live in the shadows of your song
My mind is open wide
And now I’m ready to start

Now I’m Ready to Start
My mind is open wide
Now I’m Ready to Start
Not sure you’ll open the door
To step out into the dark
Now I’m ready!


Let It Rain

You see the struggle on my face,
You see it storming in my eye
You see it heavy on my shoulder,
You see me swaying on the line

Bring on the troubles of the morning and the stories of my life
Look up above the clouds are forming
And I’m not gonna hide

Let it rain on me,
Let my shelter crumble down
Take it all away,
Don’t need no one to save me now
I’m gonna let my body drown and keep my head above the water
Let it rain on me, let it rain on me

I’m not getting any younger,
I took the longer road
But I know it’s made me stronger
Out here on my own

Bring on the troubles of the morning and the stories of my life
Look up above the clouds are forming and I’m not gonna hide

Let it rain on me,
Let my shelter crumble down
Take it all away,
Don’t need no one to save me now
I’m gonna let my body drown and keep my head above the water
Let it rain on me, let it rain on me

And like a single ray of light
It can pierce the darkest night
I was meant to make it through

So let the future crash on me
And let the water set me free
Nobody wins before they lose

Let it rain on me,
Let my shelter crumble down
Take it all away,
Don’t need no one to save me now
I’m gonna let my body drown keep my head above the water
Let it rain on me, let it rain on me
