There's a girl, thought she knew
What her life was going to do
Then she goes and falls in love and throws it all away

But her man can't decide
If he's made the right choice in life
So she comes home only to find he's gone away

Put your heart back in your pocket
Pick your love up off the floor
Well, your mama says to stop it
But, girl, let me tell you more
If he's 95 or 22
Boy's gonna do what he's gonna do
He says he don't love you anymore
So, pick up off the floor

Walks around an empty town
Sees his face coming around
Every corner takes on a similar stay

Love is lost, love can burn
But your luck will return
But if you're driving it down you won't know it's there

Put your heart back in your pocket
Pick your love up off the floor
Well, your mama says to stop it
But, girl, let me tell you more
If he's 95 or 22
Boy's gonna do what he's gonna do
He says he don't love you anymore
So, pick up off the floor


~ Pick Up Off The Floor


I'm sitting across from you
And dreaming of the things I'd do
I don't speak; you don't know me at all

For fear of what you might do
I say nothing, but stare at you
And I'm dreaming, I'm tripping over you

Truth be told, my problem's old
You mean the world to me, but you'll never know
You could be cruel to me
While risking the way

That I see you
That I see you
That I see you
That I see you

Conversation's not me at all
I'm hesitating only to fall
And I'm waiting, I'm hating everyone

Could it be you fell for more?
In any possible similiarity
If it's so, how would I know?
You'll never know me at all

But I see you
But I see you
But I see you
But I see you

I'm standing across from you
I've dreamt alone, now dreams won't do

But I see you...


~ I See You


--- MIKA ♥



The greatest thing about Mika is that he understands people. He's perceptive and intuitive and clever and talented, and his songs reflect that beautifully. He gets it. He understands human emotion perfectly, and the way people work, and he can encompass all that in a 4-5 minute song and give it such poignancy and impact. It's incredible, and these songs are just two examples of that.

He is so dead-on it's actually scary.

What really drew me to Mika in the first place was the way in which he creates. His lyrics are ridiculously good, but that's not even factoring in the way he puts them to music. It's staggering, actually; I love the way he can create a song with words and intent that are agonizing and bittersweet, quite serious, and then pair them up with an upbeat, floaty melody. It just drives the point home so much better than if he were to simply match the lyrics up to a ballad. And then, when he does create a ballad? Chills all down my back.

He's just -- he's so fucking talented! I feel absolutely blessed by his music, and, hell, we've only received two albums from him. Here's hoping for many more!

I LOVE MIKA!

I don't want you to go,
Don't wanna see you back out in the cold,
Air you're breathing out fades you to grey,
Don't run away, find me.

I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be.
It doesn't matter, go on and shatter;
I'm all you need...

Broken pieces, break into me,
So imperfectly what you should be,
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open.
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open.




-Adam Lambert, 'Broken Open'



..... I am in love with this song. (And maybe Adam Lambert. A little bit.)
rockinhamburger: (Default)
My current song obsessions:

When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.
When it's in your spine like you've walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I'll be right beside you

When you're overwhelmed and you've lost your breath
Where the space between the things you know is blurry nonetheless.
When you try to speak but you make no sound
And the words you want are out of reach but they've never been so loud

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I'll be right beside you

I will stay.
Nobody will break you,
Yeah.

Trust in me, trust in me.
Don't pull away
Trust in me, trust in me.
I'm just trying to keep this together, because I could do worse and you could do better

Tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you



'Beside You'
~Marianas Trench

(Beautiful lyrics! And I &hearts&hearts&hearts the OH-EH-OH-EH-OH-OOHs... makes my heart swell everytime.)

Hey, slow it down
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?
Yeah, I’m afraid
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?

There might have been a time
When I would give myself away
Oooh, once upon a time I didn’t give a damn
But now, here we are, so whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?

Just don’t give up, I’m workin' it out
Please don’t give in, I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around...
Hey, whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?

Yeah, it’s plain to see
That, baby, you’re beautiful
And there's nothing wrong with you
It’s me; I’m a freak
But thanks for lovin’ me
Cause you’re doing it perfectly

Yeah, there might have been a time
When I would let you step away
I wouldn’t even try
But I think you could save my life

Just don’t give up, I’m workin’ it out
Please don’t give in, I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep comin' around
Hey, whataya want from me
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?



'Whataya Want From Me?'
~Adam Lambert


(I happen to know that Pink wrote this song, and, well, of course she did. Her songs always get to me. Adam sing this one beautifully. If you haven't seen him perform this on Ellen, you really need to. Gorgeous performance. His voice gives me shivers. I'm so glad Adam exists!! Never leave, ADAM!!)

i know you've suffered
but i don't want you to hide
it's cold and loveless
i won't let you be denied

soothing
i'll make you feel pure
trust me
you can be sure

i want to reconcile the violence in your heart
i want to recognize your beauty's not a mask
i want to exorcise the demons from your heart
i want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

you trick your lovers
that you're wicked and divine
you may be a sinner
but your innocence is mine

please me
show me how it's done
trust me
you are the one


Oh MUSE!

Sweeter Girl
Jon Davis

The thriving town is muffled by
Overflowing february snow
It's a cold night in your quiet room
But your hands feel warm despite the icy storm

You place your hands on the window pane
And melt the frosted glass to look across
The things you see are a blur to me
From where i sit the blizzard's blindingly thick

It couldn't've happened to a sweeter girl
It couldn't've happened....

Still i left through your sheltering door
To face the droning winter wind alone
Somehow the storm revived me
But your hands went numb and your tears fell one by one

It couldn't've happened to a sweeter girl
It couldn't've happened to a sweeter girl

Nocturnal Rainbow
Jon Davis

I see you in bloom
In the milky moon
In the starlit expanse
Of white embers and woody plants

Dark and warm
Naked and reborn
I ponder and pray
In the mercury waves

I sense you here
Your solace is near
In its sacred outflow
In its guiding glow
Of a nocturnal rainbow

Oh, easy
Don't you give up on me
Don't you let the sea
Swallow you in misery

Dark and warm
Naked and reborn
I ponder and pray
In the mercury waves

I've been thinking
I was scarcely sinking
Into the future
Treading water
To keep from going under

Oh, easy
Don't you give up on me
Don't you let the sea
Swallow you in misery

Isn't that what you're telling me?
Yeah, you want me to see
That your starlit soul
Is here in golden glow
