Gotye – The Only Thing I Know

And sticking with a Gotye theme here’s probably my favourite by him other than ‘Somebody that I used to know’

Lyrically this song is my love life personified. I’d like Gotye to stop making songs that describe my life so well it’s gonna get awkward soon 🙂

LYRICS:

I’m living with your memory
In the attic in my mind
And you’ve been getting by without me
But I’ve been spending all my time
With a girl that I remember
Who’ll never leave or need to grow
Cos when you left you left your memory
Now it’s the only thing I know

When the past gives me no comfort
And though the future is the cost
The way I’m choosing to remember
I’ll forever be the man I never was

And you, you fade
But the memory remains the same
And I, I can’t change
And I think that living with your memory
Is slowly driving me insane

You are perfect but you’re empty
And it gets so lonely in my mind
Cos your image in my memory’s
The only shred of you that’s left behind
You were real but then you left me
And that’s the part I can’t accept
So I’ll keep on living with your memory
Because it’s all that I’ve got left

Four Night Rider – The Rural Alberta Advantage

Thanks Marelise for this musical treat.

Fractured my ribs coughing two nights ago which was super lame had to go to hospital to get xrays and now I’m on some VERY strong pain pills… not been the best 7 days of my life but on a plus note last night I hung out with an old friend and reminisced. I’m naming today self esteem boosted Thursday 🙂

The Drums – Days

Yip it appears I enjoy posting a song from The Drums a week 🙂

The new album is just too good for me to resist.

LYRICS:

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And I worked so hard
And I killed myself
And you broke my bones
And I sold my soul

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/t/the+drums/days_20976485.html ]
And I could have been your other
And I could have been your sister
Be your twin brother
I just wanted to be

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

We were just wasting time x6

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

The Miserable Rich – The Time That’s Mine

Pretty song with a pretty idea behind it, although there was a moment when I was listening to it and thought of Rebecca Black – Friday. Poor The Miserable Rich- they wrote a beautiful song that talks about the days of the week, years ago, now it’s tainted …LOL not really. It’s lovely – HEARTS!

 

Lyrics:

Monday monday, tuesday tuesday
Three more days ’til Friday
That’s the way I waste my time
Waiting for some time that’s mine

Ten days, Ten days, Nine days, nine days
Eight more days ’til payday
That’s the way I waste my time
Waiting ’til what’s mine is mine

It’s just the way you said it would be
It’s just the way you said it would be
It’s just the way you said it would be
And I’m just the way I swore I never would be

But someday, someday we’ll fly away
One day, when I get my way
What a way to waste your time
Waiting for some time
