S. Carey – Mothers

Been listening to this all day. It’s too beautiful. Folk/ Lo-fi bliss ❤

S. Carey is the moniker of musician Sean Carey of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Carey is best known as the drummer and supporting vocalist of indie folk band Bon Iver. In August 2010, Carey released his first solo album, All We Grow, which he began working on in 2008 during hiatuses from performing with the band.

Comparisons have been drawn between Carey's harmonies and those of Brian Wilson in his 2004 album Smile. His music has also been likened to that of Sufjan Stevens, Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine, José González, Steve Reich, and Talk Talk.

LYRICS:

Their feet are cracked
As they break their back
In the sun-heat
It's all, yes, it's all
For your pennies
Their kids can't go to school
In the morning
Because narcotics grow better than books

And my only hope
Is for their mothers and their daughters
To be loved

Only New York can make it right
If they want to
The consensus is rather apathy
My soul, my soul cries for them
In the morning
Because I'm guilty just the same

But eye to eye
I haven't been
But my cries are swelling
Cause they have faces
They have faces

And my only hope
Is for their mothers and their daughters
To be loved

Age of Consent – Heartbreak

80’s feeling with the most amazing lyrics.

I liked them so much I typed them up for you…expect mistakes but alot of appreciation in my effort 🙂

When I find myself alone
i think of you on your own
in silence staring at the sun
i thought our love had just begun
but then i find myself inside
your broken heart it’s open, open wide

when was love ever mentioned
you say to me now
this was not my intention

Every night i lie awake
i can feel my heart break
but then i lie and close my eyes
we are together now
heartbreak

my dreams are lost and full of hope
they take me all around the globe
i dream of dying every night
my heart it aches for you

but then i find myself inside
your broken heart it’s open, open wide

when was love ever mentioned
you say to me now
this was not my intention

Every night i lie awake
i can feel my heart break
but then i lie and close my eyes
we are together now
heartbreak

Every night i lie awake
i can feel my heart break
but then i lie and close my eyes
we are together now
heartbreak

Heartbreak
Heartache
Heartbreak
Heartache

Every night i lie awake
i can feel my heart break
but then i lie and close my eyes
we are together now
heartbreak

Heartbreak
Heartache
Heartbreak

we are together now
heartbreak

Heartbreak
Heartache
Heartbreak
Heartache

we are together now
heartbreak

Lanterns On The Lake – Lungs Quicken

Moody folk that has a post pop feel.

Sigh! Too pretty ❤

LYRICS:

it's a lively crowd tonight
there's a war on tv
and your heart grows old and tired
with every beat

lungs, please breathe
for me
heart, just beat
for me

you're the leading role in this life
no one you can't defeat
when the curtain call comes 'round
they'll be on their feet

lungs, please breathe
for me
wings, take speed
for me

lungs, please breathe
for me
for me
heart, please beat
for me
for me
wings, take speed
for me
for me

lungs, please breathe
for me
for me
heart, just beat
for me
for me
wings, take speed
for me
for me

Lana Del Rey – Dark Paradise

And the award for most depressing lyrics goes to Lana Del Ray

All my friends tell me I should move on
I’m lying in the ocean, singing your song
Ahhh, that’s how you sang it
Loving you forever, can’t be wrong
Even though you’re not here, won’t move on
Ahhh, that’s how we played it

And there’s no remedy for memory of faces
Like a melody, it won’t leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Everytime I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side

All my friends ask me why I stay strong
Tell ’em when you find true love it lives on
Ahhh, that’s why I stay here

And there’s no remedy for memory of faces
Like a melody, it won’t leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Everytime I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you

But that there’s no you, except in my dreams tonight,
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don’t wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don’t wanna wake up from this tonight

There’s no relief, I see you in my sleep
And everybody’s rushing me, but I can feel you touching me
There’s no release, I feel you in my dreams
Telling me I’m fine

Everytime I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It’s like a dark paradise
No one compares to you

But that there’s no you, except in my dreams tonight,
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don’t wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh, ha ha ha
I don’t wanna wake up from this tonight

SoKo – First Love Never Die

SoKo (born Stéphanie Sokolinski) is a French singer and actress. Her first album is available Feb. 6th, 2012, on her website

SAD but perfect lyrics:

i feel like walking
do you feel like coming
i feel like talking coz
it’s been a long time

now your hair is long
and you look so thin
you’re always so pale
but something has changed
you’re almost a man

4 years and i still cry sometimes
first love never die
4 years and i still cry sometimes
first love never die

long time no see
long time wondering
what you were doing
who you were seeing
i wish i could go back to it

i feel like walking
do you feel like coming
i feel like talking coz
it’s been a long time

4 years and i still cry sometimes
first love never die
4 years and i still cry sometimes
first love never die

can you feel the same
i will never love again

The Head And The Heart – Rivers and Roads

Super pretty song but damn it’s sad!

LYRICS:

a year from now we’ll all be gone
all our friends will move away
and they’re going to better places
but our friends will be gone away

nothing is as it has been
and i miss your face like hell
and i guess it’s just as well
but i miss your face like hell

been talking bout the way things change
and my family lives in a different state
and if you don’t know what to make of this
then we will not relate
so if you don’t know what to make of this
then we will not relate

rivers and roads
rivers and roads
rivers ’til i reach you

Is Tropical – Lies

This song is hitting home on such a depressing level today I may seek comfort in donuts.

LYRICS:

Too old to sell, too young to tell, too much of everything
Mirrors deflect light from their eyes
Fact turns to fiction when we blink
Things best forgotten don’t you think
Sit comfortably whilst telling lies

Those brittle trees, those skeleton leaves were meant for dying
Swallow the lies more than the truth
They’re always ready on the tongue
For all the falsehoods to be sung
Sit comfortably whilst telling lies

They don’t love you, the just need a little sex sometimes
True colours shine through
Don’t beat yourself up for being too blind

They don’t love you (x2)

Too old to sell, too young to tell, too much of everything
Mirrors deflect light from their eyes
Fact turns to fiction when we blink
Things best forgotten don’t you think
Sit comfortably whilst telling lies

(They don’t love you) Those brittle trees, those skeleton leaves were meant for dying
(They just need a little sex sometimes) Swallow the lies more than the truth
(True colours shine through) They’re always ready on the tongue
(Don’t beat yourself up for being too blind) For all the falsehoods to be sung
Sit comfortably whilst telling lies

They don’t love you
They just need a little sex sometimes
True colours shine through
Don’t beat yourself up for being too blind

Gotye- Somebody That I Used To Know

So I heard this song today and died alittle bit inside. Feels like it’s a song about all my past relationships! Intense but the best musical find of the month.

 

Wowza!

 

Lyrics:

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know

Somebody…
