Vera Lynn, “It Hurts to Say Goodbye” – nostalgic in Rome ;)

“Take me in your arms and hold me tight
Tell me that your love is mine tonight
Say that everything will turn up right
It hurts to say goodbye Let me know the thrill of your embrace
Memories that time cannot erase
Why’d I kiss the teardrops from your face
It hurts to say goodbye Wherever you are
You will always be near to me
Wherever I go….”

Pick of the Day: Nick Cave and Warren Ellis – Shattered Ground

“My moon in the night sky with pale eyes
And pale skin and long hair covering her naked body
And sometimes she’s laughing and sometimes she’s crying
And sometimes the moon is talking to nobody
And there’s a madness in her and a madness in me
And together it forms a kind of sanity
Oh baby, don’t leave me
We drove through the hills with the moon in our eyes
We bought a house in the country where we could lose our minds
The moon is a girl with tеars in her eyes
Who is throwing hеr bags in the back of the car
I’m not even remotely surprised…..”

Pick of the Day: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home

“Alabama, Arkansas
I do love my ma and pa
Not that way that I do love you Well, holy moly, me oh my
You’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you Man, oh man, you’re my best friend
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothing that I need Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie
Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
Ain’t nothing please me more than you Oh, home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Oh, home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you La, la, la, la, take me home….”

Pick of the Day: Lord Huron – The Night We Met

“I am not the only traveler
Who has not repaid his debt
I’ve been searching for a trail to follow again
Take me back to the night we met
And then I can tell myself
What the hell I’m supposed to do
And then I can tell myself
Not to ride along with you
I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Oh, take me back to the night we met
When the night was full of terrors
And your eyes were filled with tears
When you had not touched… “

Absolutely Perfect Winter

“Snow is…a beautiful reminder of life and all its quirks. It makes me pause. Think. Stay still. Even my mind takes the hint. It makes me feel giddy. Like a kid. I bring my hot cocoa to the window and simply sit and reminisce…It brings me back to days of school cancellations and snow igloos and King of the Mountain games in my childhood neighborhood…That for this one moment in time, I’m not an adult with all the headaches that can accompany that responsibility, but instead, I’m still the girl in pigtails with the handmade hat and mittens, just waiting to build her next snowman.” – R.B. O’Brien

Perfect for morning cycling

“Be my desire
I’m a frustrated man
Summon us for peace
Do what we can
Feel my desire
Favor the bold
Some of us fall to the Earth
These others roam
Beseeched by desire
Come on baby
You played me out
You played me out
What looked like your chance to leave
But you played me out
So now I gave you up
It’s time for a change of heart
See my desire
No solemn moods
All of us are teammates
We stick to the rules
It’s a real life desire
Come on baby
You played me out
You laid me out
That looked like your chance to leave
But you played me out
So now I gave you up….”
