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!


Day 09: What is on my wishlist

I’m ranking them by probability to come true

iPhone
Verizon finally has it available, so when it comes time to renew I will get one.

Weekend trip to St. Augustine
Just thought it would be a fun road trip and I’ve never visited before.

Nookcolor
I love to read but I do not love to pack, move and unpack boxes of books (which I have done too many times to count). And I like gadgets.

Lion King on Broadway
I’ve seen several plays, Les Miserable and Phantom of the Opera being my favorites, but I’ve wanted to see this one for several years and haven’t gotten a chance yet.

3 day trip to New York to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art
While I would take a much longer trip to New York if I could, I would be very pleased to go just to visit the MET. And I could most certainly spend ALL 3 days there just visiting the museum.

Lollapalooza in Chicago
I love music

Cook a complete Thanksgiving Dinner
I only just recently discovered that I enjoy cooking quite a lot, when done with and for others. Maybe a future significant other can help me make a fabulous (or not burnt) Thanksgiving dinner one day.

Learn the Violin
I used to play the piano for several years when I was very young, but I have always loved the sound of the violin. I’m sure my neighbors would not be pleased if I tried learning to play now.

Trip to Korea
Although I don’t speak the language, of course I want to visit the country where I was born. Why I put this last though is because it is almost literally on the other side of the world and if I’m going to go visit, it is going to be more then just for a few days. So, not possible for me to pull off this trip anytime in the near future.
