Sarah Bareilles: Gravity


I heard this song several times, and without recognizing it, heard this line that repeatedly stood out to me.

Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long
No matter what I say or do
I still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone

You hold me without touch
You keep me without chains
I never wanted anything so much
Than to drown in your love and not feel your rain

Set me free, leave me be
I don’t wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am and I stand so tall
I’m just the way I’m supposed to be
But you’re on to me and all over me

You loved me ’cause I’m fragile
When I thought that I was strong
But you touch me for a little while
And all my fragile strength is gone

Set me free, leave me be
I don’t wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am and I stand so tall
I’m just the way I’m supposed to be
But you’re on to me and all over me

I live here on my knees
As I try to make you see
That you’re everything I think I need
Here on the ground

But you’re neither friend nor foe
Though I can’t seem to let you go
The one thing that I still know
Is that you’re keeping me down
You’re keeping me down

You’re on to me, on to me and all over
Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long

xoxo

REPOST: Spitting Some Thoughts…


You told me to just come over and lay down with you.
I was blinded by your speech
and I played along for the joy ride too.
It was an entertaining preach,
but listen to your own words,
if you were only 2/3rds of the man I heard,
you wouldn’t have to teach these birds how to fly
I’m the pilot on command,
on this trek,
and we’re bout to wreck,
the captain of the crew,
I’m a manned satellite, orbiting around you
and . . .

Welcome to “Candy Land.”
Do you wanna be my man?
You wanna Play?  Be my flavor of the week?
Weigh the pros and cons if you decide to stay.
pique my interest, get my attention.
Release all this energy, and sexual tension,
on your wasted pretension.
I’ve got vocabulary and technique,
too strong for the weak,
I’m a rare breed, someone unique.
if you wanna stay the high way,
No room for drama,  just time for play.
Up in the clouds you wanna stay asleep,
But I’m wide awake and my mind wants to go deep.

Kristie Manning inc…
You’re only as good as your weakest link.
Check out all my ink.
I’m particular in the company  I keep.
5 star crew.
So I’m kickin’ it with you.
Learn some Wing Chun Kung Fu,
We’re chillin’ like a Buddhist monk,
But we get down so you better rethink punk,
Next time we roll out to the club drunk,
Don’t come at me with your bunk speech,
Hate speech.
I’ll let you know when it’s your turn to speak. 

I’ll teach you lessons in grammar,
I’m about to drop the hammer,
There is a difference between “their and “there.”
What happened to all your hair?
You wouldn’t know you anal cavity,
from a blunt terrestrial erosion,
gravity has me repelling you,
No need to show emotion,
Oh! Is that too big words for you?
Your tattoo’s tell your age,
those flames and skulls on your sleeve,
You look like you work for minimum wage.
OH you quit being a pastor for 20 years,
to be a drug dealer, Cheers… to that!

You’re coming up in the world my friend!
When’s the last time you went to the gym?
the last time I couldn’t see my feet I was 9 months preg.
I’m fine and looking slim,
n guys just can’t wait to get in.
Stop humping my leg.
Wait your turn in line, get on the list.
You won’t go away, you’re like a cancer, or a cyst.
Keep on creeping, ’cause to me… YOU DON’T EVEN FUCKIN’ EXIST!

by me

the Ice is Getting Thinner


“The Ice Is Getting Thinner”

We’re not the same, dear, as we used to be.
The seasons have changed and so have we.
There was little we could say, and even less we could do
To stop the ice from getting thinner under me and you.

We bury our love in the wintery grave
A lump in the snow was all that remained.
But we stayed by its side as the days turned to weeks
And the ice kept getting thinner with every word that we’d speak.

And when spring arrived
We were taken by surprise when the floes under our feet bled into the sea
And nothing was left for you and me.

We’re not the same, dear,
And it seems to me
There’s nowhere we can go
With nothing underneath.
And it saddens me to say
But we both know, well, it’s true
That the ice was getting thinner
Under me and you.
The ice was getting thinner
Under me and you.

KICKSTART! by Example


The Original by Example is more “electronic house.”

I love this song! This is the Bar9 Remix.  The video evokes so much more emotion with the mix.  I imagine, they are referring to them fighting with each other from the implication of the lyrics, and dramatize it with the gangstas chasing them.  Such an awesome mix evoking emotion!

Lyrics

Kickstart

You want me to come over I got an excuse
Might be holding your hand but i’m holding it loose
Go to talk then we choke its like our necks in a noose
Avoid the obvious we should be facing the truth

Start to think it could be fizzling out
Kinda shocked because I never really had any doubts
Look into your eyes imagine life with out ya

And the love kick starts again
Starts again

The Love kick starts again
Starts again

Its the same old you the same old me
You get bored and I get cold feet
Get high get wandering eyes
Forget i’ve never ever had it so sweet
I realise what I got when I’m out of town
Cos deep down you’re my girl in a golden crown
My princess and I don’t wanna let you down
No I Don’t wanna let you down down down down

You want me to come over I got an excuse
Might be holding your hand but im holding it loose
Go to talk then we choke its like our necks in a noose
Avoid the obvious we should be facing the truth

Start to think it could be fizzling out
Kinda shocked because I never really had any doubts
Look into your eyes imagine life with out ya

And the love kick starts again
Starts again

Heavy In Your Arms


I was a heavy heart to carry
My beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced a crown
I was a heavy heart to carry
My feet dragged across the ground
And he took me to the river
Where he slowly let me drown

My love has concrete feet, my love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall

I'm so heavy. Heavy. Heavy in your arms
I'm so heavy. Heavy. Heavy in your arms

And is it worth the wait,
All this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand,
Protecting both your heart and mine?
Who is the betrayer
Who's the killer in the crowd?
The one who creeps in corridors
And doesn't make a sound

My love has concrete feet, my love is an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall
My love has concrete feet, my love is an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles, over the waterfall

I'm so heavy. Heavy. Heavy in your arms
I'm so heavy. Heavy. So heavy in your arms

This will be my last confession
"I love you" never felt like any blessing
Whisper it like it's a secret
Uttered to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

Heavy. Heavy. Heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms
(I'm so heavy) Heavy, heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms
(I'm so heavy) Heavy, heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms
(I'm so heavy) Heavy, heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms

I was a heavy heart to carry
My beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced a crown
I was a heavy heart to carry
But he never let me down
When he held me in his arms
My feet never touched the ground

I'm so heavy
Heavy in your arms

Heavy. I'm so heavy in your arms

Cocorosie: Lemonade


The American sister’s,  Bianca “Coco” and Sierra “Rosie” Casady, met up and France in 2003 to create their band, Cocorosie.  Incorporating pop, blues, electronic, hip hop, and opera, their style is called “Freak Folk.”   My girlfriend left her CD in my car, and the other night I heard… “Jesus Loves me, Not your nigger wife, not you nigger friends.”  I was shocked!  So I looked more into them.  Strange video concepts.  Unique singing styles. Cool instrument usage, (children’s toys.)

It was Cinco de Mayo
Pillow case on his head
No more breathing time
An ambulance sped
It sped round every corner
Calling out his name

Shot a rabbit from the back seat window
Sat and watched in the summer corn row
Ate icecream in a desert dream
Got love in father seeing you
Too hot inside to hot outside
Lazy days when you said just go for a ride
We’ll sail on Spirit Lake,
Me, my pappy, and his lemonade

Tim and tina were my parents’ names
They got engaged they were inflamed
Seduced by the lie of butterflies

How they shimmer, how they glimmer
Those butterflies

We seven kids, we almost died
Nearly put to death
But lightning strike
Instead there was hot pink
Flashes in the sky
We climb the rocks in snowing rain
In search of magic power

To heal our mother’s pain

Shot a rabbit from the back seat window
Sat and watched in the summer corn row
Ate icecream in a desert dream
Got love in father seeing you
Too hot inside to hot outside
Lazy days when you said just go for a ride
We’ll sail on Spirit Lake.
Me, my pappy, and his lemonade

Set the Fire to the Third bar by Snow Patrol, Music Video & Lyrics


I find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
The distance from ‘A’ to where you’d be
It’s only finger-lengths that I see
I touch the place where I’d find your face
My fingers in creases of distant dark places

I hang my coat up in the first bar
There is no peace that I’ve found so far
The laughter penetrates my silence
As drunken men find flaws in science

Their words mostly noises
Ghosts with just voices
Your words in my memory
Are like music to me

I’m miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
I, I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

After I have travelled so far
We’d set the fire to the third bar
We’d share each other like an island
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
And dreaming, pick up from
The last place we left off
Your soft skin is weeping
A joy you can’t keep in

I’m miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
And I, I pray that something picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms

I’m miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
and I, I pray that something picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms

Blue Foundation: Eyes on Fire Video & Lyrics (from Twilight)


I’ll seek you out,
Flay you alive
One more word and you won’t survive
And I’m not scared of your stolen power
I see right through you any hour

I won’t soothe your pain
I won’t ease your strain
You’ll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain

I’m taking it slow
Feeding my flame
Shuffling the cards of your game
And just in time
In the right place
Suddenly I will play my ace

I won’t soothe your pain
I won’t ease your strain
You’ll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain

Eyes on fire
Your spine is ablaze
Felling any foe with my gaze

And just in time
In the right place
Steadily emerging with grace

Felling any foe with my gaze
Steadily emerging with grace
Felling any foe with my gaze
Steadily emerging with grace

Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina: Stereo Love (my new favorite song) Lyrics & Video




When you gonna stop breaking my heart
I don't wanna be another one
Paying for the things I never done
Don't let go, don't let go to my love

I hate to see you cry, your smile is a beautiful lie.
I hate to see you cry, my love is dying inside.
I can fix all those lies, oh, baby, baby, I run, but I'm running to you
You won't see me cry, I'm hiding inside
My heart is in pain, but I'm smiling for you.

Can I get to your soul ? Can you get to my thoughts ?
Can you promise we won't let go ?
All the things that I need, all the things that you need
You can make it feel so real.
'Cause you can't deny, you've blown my mind
When I touch your body, I feel I'm losing control
'Cause you can't deny, you've blown my mind
When I see you baby, I just don't wanna let go

When you gonna stop breaking my heart
I don't wanna be another one ...

I hate to see you cry, your smile is a beautiful lie.
I hate to see you cry, my love is dying inside.
I can fix all those lies, oh, baby, baby, I run, but I'm running to you
You won't see me cry, I'm hiding inside
My heart is in pain, but I'm smiling for you.
Oh, baby, I'll try to make the things right
I need you more than air, when I'm not with you
Please, don't ask me why, just kiss me this time
My only dream is about you and I.

Cake: Let Me Go


when she walks
she swings her arms, instead of her hips
when she talks she moves her mouth, instead of her lips
i’ve waited for her for so long
i’ve waited for her for so long
i’ve wondered if i could hang on
i’ve wondered if i could hang on

“let me go,” she said
“let me go,” she said
let me go and i will want you more
let me go, let me go
let me go and i will want you

when she wants
she wants the sun instead of the moon
when she sees
she sees the stars inside of her room
i’ve waited for her for so long
i’ve waited for her for so long
i’ve wondered if i could hang on
i’ve wondered if i could hang on

“let me go,” she said
“let me go,” she said
let me go and i will want you more
“let me go,” she said
let me go
let me go, and i will want you

“let me go,” she said
“let me go,” she said
“let me go,” she said
let me go, let me go
