Cat Power- Empty Shell

All that is left
Is an empty shell
All my heart is crushed
I don't ever want to see
What my mind will see
When you loved me

Every night
Every night alone with you
Every night alone now

When she sits on your lap
Try to pretend to laugh
When she does stupid things
Just like I used to do
Do not hate her
Don't you even try
For to leave her
Is to love her
The same as you and I

I love you
And I miss you too
I really do love you
And I really do miss you too

But, I don't love you
And I don't need you
And I don't want you
Anymore

Every night
Every night alone with you
Every night alone now
 

up all night

^ Awesome song. I love it so much.

Tonight this song is everything.

Yo La Tengo - Black Flowers

You can take what you can get
I forgive but I forget
You can never sleep enough
And your alarm is going off
You wake up and you can't pretend
A dream was just a dream again
Won't you dry your eyes?
But it doesn't matter anymore
You did just what you did before
Until you realize the words
Are going on and on and on

You can dig your grave in joy
When you find the real McCoy
When some pretty boys with skinny ties
With black flowers and Valentines
Try to take you home
Do you recognize that I
Have stopped before you get too high
On your own, surprise
Singing la la la la

You want it, you got it
You can't take it home
You got a long way to go
I wait forever to say that you will
You have a heart to show, ohh

Well you don't have to stay inside
Don't have to run, don't have to hide
Come dry your eyes
You know you can always change your mind
Maybe I will too in time
Once we understand
No one understands at all

1.2 I'm sorry

Matt Willis - Don't Let It Go To Waste

Drawing circles on the window
Then I'm staring at the floor
There are places that we could go
Cause we've been here before


And I'm losing myself, and I'm feeling a little
Confused, I need help
, I'm outta here so

Get out the car honey,
cause what you said was out of place
Well I guess I'm walking home
With that sad look upon my face
Straight from the heart, no worries
I got a lot of love to make,
can you feel it a little?
Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh
Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh

Like a long distance conversation
With a two second delay
So good luck but we don't listen
And we've got so much to say


And I'm losing myself, and I'm feeling a little
Confused, I need help, I'm outta here so

Get out the car honey,
cause what you said was out of place
Well I guess I'm walking home
With that sad look upon my face
Straight from the heart, no worries
I got a lot of love to make,
can you feel it a little?
Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh
Don't let us go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh

And I don't want to lose you
Even though we've got issues
Yeah, and I know we can get through
I've fought it all, cause I've turned the block and survived
Yeah


Get out the car honey,
cause what you said was out of place
Well I guess I'm walking home
With that sad look upon my face
Straight from the heart, no worries
I got a lot of love to make,
can you feel it a little? Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh
Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh
Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh
Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh
Don't let it go to waste
Ahh ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh
Don't let it go to waste
Cause I feel it a little
Don't let us go to waste

Incubus-Dig

We all have a weakness
But some of ours are easier to identify. Look me in the eye,
and ask for forgiveness.
We'll make a pact to never speak that word again.
Yes, you are my friend.
We all have something that digs at us,
at least we dig each other.

So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you'll count on the me from yesterday.

If I turn into another
dig me up from under what is covering
the better part of me.
Sing this song
remind me that we'll always have each other
when everything else is gone.

We all have a sickness
that cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try.
We all have someone that digs at us,
at least we dig each other.

So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you'll act as a clever medicine.
If I turn into another,
dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me.
Sing this song!
Remind me that we'll always have each other
when everything else is gone.
Oh, each other when everything else is gone.

A song to break your own heart to

This song has been stomping my heart lately...

Plain White T's- "Hey There Delilah"

Hey there Delilah
What's it like in New York City?
I'm a thousand miles away
But girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can't shine as bright as you
I swear it's true

Hey there Delilah
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice it's my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting harder
But just believe me girl
Someday I'll pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
And we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time that we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you're to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don't you miss me
Two more years and you'll be done with school
And I'll be making history like I do
You know it's all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here's to you
This one's for you

Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
Oh it's what you do to me
What you do to me...

It doesn't get any better than this, IMO... one of my all-time favourites from the king of the Blues, B.B. King:

Outside Help

All of your affection is gone baby
And your love is growing cold
I said all of your affection is gone baby
And your love is growing cold
Hey, I've got a new story to tell you this evening, baby
One that ain't never been told

I went to work the other day
But I thought that I would double back
And that car I saw sitting in front of my door
Looked like a brand new, a brand new Cadillac, yeah!

I ain't got none now baby
I think you've been cheating on me
I believe to my soul baby,
That you've given me some outside help
That I don't think I really need

The iceman came by this morning
And you know he didn't leave no ice
The postman came by later baby
And he didn't even ring twice!

I think you've been cheating on me
I think you're running out on me
I believe to my soul baby,
That you've given me some outside help
That I don't think I really need

Now, I want you to tell the iceman
The next time he'd better leave some ice!
And I want you to tell the postman
He'd better ring more than twice!

And when I come home from work in the morning
Better still be some groceries on the shelf.
I want you to tell that slick insurance man
That he'd better write some insurance on his self!

Yes, I think you've been cheating on me
I think you're running out on me
I believe to my soul baby,
That you've given me some help, some help
Some help, I don't really need

SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS - THE POSTAL SERVICE

This song does it for me. Apart from this band being one of my favourites, I think this song is beautiful, without being cliched or cheesy.



I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they're perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay
And true, it may seem like a stretch, but
Its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you're away when I am missing you to death
When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now,' they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now,' but we'll stay...

I tried my best to leave this all on your
Machine but the persistent beat it sounded
Thin upon listening
And that frankly will not fly. You will hear
The shrillest highs and lowest lows with
The windows down when this is guiding you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now,' they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now,' but we'll stay...

And, for most self-indulgent song, My Sweet Prince - Placebo. Not that I have ever...erm..chased the dragon so to speak, but its meaning is obviously not limited to that one aspect.

Never thought you'd make me perspire.
Never thought I'd do you the same.
Never thought I'd fill with desire.
Never thought I'd feel so ashamed.

Me and the dragon can chase all the pain away.
So before I end my day, remember..
My sweet prince, you are the one
My sweet prince
you are the one

Never thought I'd have to retire
Never thought I'd have to abstain
Never thought all this could back fire
Close up the hole in my vain

Me and my valuable friend
can fix all the pain away
So before I end my day
remember
My sweet prince
you are the one
My sweet prince
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one

Never thought I'd get any higher
Never thought you'd fuck with my brain
Never thought all this could expire
Never thought you'd go break the chain

Me and you baby,
still flush all the pain away
So before I end my day
remember
My sweet prince
you are the one
My sweet prince
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one
My sweet prince
My sweet prince

I'm getting to the point where I can't take any more.

Pet Shop Boys - Numb

Don't wanna hear the news
What's going on
What's coming through
I don't wanna know
Don't wanna know
Just wanna hide away
Make my my escape
I want the world
To leave me alone
Feels like I feel too much
I've seen too much
For a little while
I want to forget

I wanna be numb
I don't wanna feel this pain no more
Wanna lose touch
I just wanna go and lock the door
I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing
I wanna be numb
I just wanna be
Wanna be numb

Can't find no space to breathe
World's closing in
Right on me now
Well that's how it feels
That's how it feels
Too much light
There's too much sound
Wanna turn it off
Wanna shut it out
I need some relief
Think that like I think too much
I've seen too much
There is just too much
Thought in my head

I wanna be numb
I don't wanna feel this pain no more
Wanna lose touch
I just wanna go and lock the door
I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing
I wanna be numb
I just wanna be
Wanna be
Taken away from all the madness
Need to escape
Escape from the pain
I'm out on the edge
About to lose my mind
For a little while
For a little while
I wanna be numb

I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing
I wanna be numb
I don't wanna feel this pain no more
Wanna lose touch
I just wanna go and lock the door
I don't wanna think
I don't wanna feel nothing
I wanna be numb
I just wanna be
Wanna be numb
I just wanna be
Wanna be numb

Sweetbox - I miss you

Don’t be afraid to cry
It wasn’t wasted time
We just couldn’t win that fight
And I knew you couldn’t stay
You had to go your way
There’s really nothing left to say
But every now and then you cross my mind
And I try not to think about where you are tonight


But I miss you
But I really miss you
There’s no going back ‘cause what’s done is done
But I miss you ‘cause I really miss you
But sometimes love just ain’t enough


Hey
We didn’t write the rules
It wasn’t me wasn’t you
We both know that life is cruel
I know we can’t go down that road again
And it hurts too much to think what might have been

I know we can’t escape from the paths that we have chosen
But every now and then, I’m reminded

I know we can’t go down that road again
And it hurts too much to think what might have been.​

Sorry for the repost but...

"Chasing Cars" - Snow Patrol

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?


Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Here's to tiny bedrooms. Potential death from sleep fidgets. Lips that still fit.....and hearts that never stopped knowing! It's all fireworks and soup, 10/22 :) xx

Erasure - Goodnight

Sleepless nights don't bother me at all
If dawn comes I won't worry
Something deep inside keeps me awake
I wish that you were here right beside me, woah

I recall when I was very young
And could not go to sleep
My father sang me songs to make me tired
But memories don't make it easier

So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream you dream of me
So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream you dream of me

Now I lie awake and it's no fun
Tossing and turning
I'd call you if it weren't so very late
But telephones don't bring you close to me, woah

I recall the times we stayed up late
Wide awake but still dreaming
There was nothing on this earth could make me tired
But memories don't make it easier

So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream, if you dream, you dream of me
So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream, if you dream, you dream of me
And I hope that if you dream you dream of me

Woody Guthrie 'This Machine kills Fashists' circa 1965

I lived in a place called Okfuskee
And I had a little girl in a holler tree
I said, little girl, it's plain to see,
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

She said it's hard for me to see
How one little boy got so ugly
Yes, my luttle girly, that might be
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me

Ain't nobody that can sing like me
Way over yonder in the minor key
Way over yonder in the minor key
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

We walked down by the Buckeye Creek
To see the frog eat the goggle eye bee
To hear that west wind whistle to the east
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

Oh my little girly will you let me see
Way over yonder where the wind blows free
Nobody can see in our holler tree
And there ain't nobody that can sing like me

Her mama cut a switch from a cherry tree
And laid it on the she and me
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me

Now I have walked a long long ways
And I still look back to my tanglewood days
I've led lots of girls since then to stray
Saying, ain't nobody that can sing like me.

I know it sounds all quaint, but my god, Guthrie lived his lyrics like few others!

Depeche Mode-Policy Of Truth, this album actually has been around to slap me in the face periodically for 17 years, still sounds so much ahead of its time, Violator was remastered and worth picking up again.

You had something to hide
Should have hidden it, shouldn't you
Now you're not satisfied
With what you're being put through
It's just time to pay the price
For not listening to advice
And deciding in your youth
On the policy of truth

Things could be so different now
It used to be so civilised
You will always wonder how
It could have been if you'd only lied
It's too late to change events
It's time to face the consequence
For delivering the proof
In the policy of truth

Never again is what you swore
The time before
Never again is what you swore
The time before

Now you're standing there tongue tied
You'd better learn your lesson well
Hide what you have to hide
And tell what you have to tell
You'll see your problems multiplied
If you continually decide
To faithfully pursue
The policy of truth

Never again is what you swore
The time before
Never again is what you swore
The time before
