Maya Laner – Why Don’t They Let Us Fall in Love

Beautiful vocal harmonies. Hells yeah! This song is covered quite often but I really like this version, although The Morning Benders version is lovely I think this one is my fav.

Here’s the original for your listening pleasure

LYRICS:

Why do they say that we’re too young to go steady?
Don’t they believe it, that I love you already?
Gee the moon is shining bright
Wish I could go out tonight
Why don’t they let us fall in love?
Why don’t they let us fall in love?
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Why do they always try to keep us apart?
Why do they laugh at what I feel in my heart?
Gee the stars are shining bright
I wish that I could hold you tight
Why don’t they let us fall in love?
Why don’t they let us fall in love?
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, why?

(instrumental)

Gee the stars are shining bright
I wish that I could hold you tight
Why don’t they let us fall in love?
Why don’t they let us fall in love?
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, why?
Yeah yeah, why?
Oh oh oh oh, why?
Oh oh, why?
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, why?
…& fade

Langhorne Slim – I Love You, But Goodbye

 

Lyrics of the most beautiful kind:

Why did you come?
If you can’t stay forever
How could you leave me all
alone on this Earth

Who was I before you?
I can’t remember
Why couldn’t I have been the one to
Leave here first?

I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye

No words of wisdom
Can make me feel better
Lately I’m having hard days and I
I curse the night

Maybe I’ll fly far away
And try to forget her
Maybe I’ll stay right where I am and
get on with my life

She said I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
A bird with clipped wings can still sing
But can no longer fly

What are we here for?
Who makes the decision?
For every beginning
There must come an end

I want to thank you darling
For all that you’ve given
I want to thank you, thank you for
being my friend

And I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye

Jeremy Warmsley – If He Breaks Your Heart acoustic version

My bad! I forgot how much I adore Jeremy Warmsley. It’s the ‘I still won’t stand a chance’ line that gets me every time. Prettiness and heartbreak wrapped in a song

If he breaks your heart
I will break his legs
If he takes the piss
I will break his face
If he fucks it up
I will kill him stone cold dead
If he breaks your heart
Will I stand a chance?

If he hangs around
Like an awful smell
I will have some words
I will keep you safe
If he never gets the message
Written loud and clear
I will write it down
I will take him down
If he breaks your heart
Will I stand a chance?

Ahhh…

If he treats you right
I will be his friend
I will never sing
This song out loud
If he breaks your heart
I will break his legs
If he breaks your heart
I will break his face
If he breaks your heart
I will end him
I

If he breaks your heart
I still won’t stand a chance

Ahhh…

Oooooo…

Widowspeak – Harsh Realm

 

Lyrics:

Last night I thought of you
Years ago, when bodies grew
An empty home
A vacant Hell
I knew you in the harsh realm
I thought about how it was
I thought about you because
I always
think about you
I always think about you

I always think about you
I always think about you
I always think about you
I always think about you

Grizzly Bear!

So I made a new cd for my car and randomly put alot of Grizzly Bear on it. I’d forgotten how much I adore them.

I saw them a few years ago at The Roundhouse in Camden and it was the best show I’ve ever seen. Beach House opened which was pretty special but really Grizzly Bear were on another level.

I spent the entire show in awe and with a weird smile on my face – that weird smile people who are so in love with the music get, then when they catch the eye of another big fan in the audience they nod like they’re the only ones who get it 🙂

Yeah – totally a fan but thats okay. I like the fact that music touches me so much, makes breathing easier.

Heres my favourite Grizzly Bear song… old but amazing.

 

 

Mention a name, we know (we know)
Appear tame, it shows (it shows)
Please dont feign, the ropes (the ropes)
Always the same, I know (Iknow)

(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)

(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
God let it go, it doesnt mean a thing
(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
Chance and sow, nothing changing

There’s no time, to go (to go)
Through the designs, we know (we know)
Never mind, although (although)
Maybe this time, we’ll grow (we’ll grow)

(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)

(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
God let it go, it doesn’t mean a thing
(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
Chance and sow, nothing changing

(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
God let it go, it doesn’t mean a thing
(Im shooting them myself, I should’ve made it matter)
Chance and sow, nothing changing

SBTRKT – Never Never

 

Not my usual bag but lovely lyrics and beautiful voice. I’ve decided to grow up alittle and stop chasing heart break. Deleting phone numbers and BBM pins is the smartest thing I could do today 🙂

 

LYRICS!

It’s complicated when you gravitate towards yourself.
On the other hand it’s hard to talk to anyone else.
You can’t help-can’t help where your mind goes.
So lets’ harvest on the moon with the autumn snow.
‘Cause I’ve never never had so much to gain and threw it all away.
And if I ever ever had the chance again I’d probably do the same.
Singing ooooh I’ve only let you down.
Singing ooooh I’ve left you the crown.
Open up open up to see you’re, see you’re face,
Whatching yourself in your dreams like wide awake.
Hoping hoping you’ll return my calls.
Convince myself on my health that it’s not my fault.
‘Cause I’ve never never had so much to gain and threw it all away.
And if I ever ever had the chance again I’d probably do the same.
Singing ooh I’ve only let you down.
Singing ooh I’ve left you the crown.

Ahhhhh…
Ooooh….
Ahhhhh…
Ooooohh…

No one ever had so much to gain or so much to lose.
No one ever had so much to gain or so much to lose.
No one ever had so much to gain or so much to lose.

If I ever had If I ever had if I ever had another…

See I’ve never never had so much to gain and threw it all away.
And if I ever ever had a chance again I’d probably do the same.
Singing ooooh I’ve only let you down.
Singing ooooh I’ve left you the crown.

See I’ve never never had so much to gain or had so much to lose.
And if I ever ever get past the shame and get through the bruises.
Singing oooh I’ll never let you down.
Singing oooh I never left the crown.

Tom Waits – Way Down In The Hole

 

Having a Tom Waits day. God I love this man!

 

Down in the hole…

 

Tom Waits makes me want to smoke more cigarettes and drink whiskey in a shady bar with a bar man who knows my drinks order every time.
