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

take it with you …and have beautiful day

“Far, far away a train whistle blows
Wherever you’re goin’, wherever you’ve been
Waving goodbye at the end of the day
You’re up and you’re over, and you’re far away
Always for you, and forever yours
It felt just like the old days
We fell asleep on Beaula’s porch
I’m gonna take it with me when I go
All broken down by the side of the road
I’s never more alive or alone
I’ve worn the faces off all the cards
I’m gonna take it with me when I go
The children are playing at the end of the day
Strangers are singing on our lawn
It’s got to be more than flesh and bone
All that you’ve loved is all you own
In a land there’s a town, and in that town there’s a house
And in that house there’s a woman
And in that woman there’s a heart I love
I’m gonna take it with me when I go…”

PJ Harvey feat. Thom Yorke – This Mess We’re In

“You look me
In the eye directly
You met me
I think it’s Wednesday
The evening
The mess we’re in
And ohh (the city sunset over me)
Ohh (the city sunset over me)
Night and day
I dream of
Making love
To you now baby
Love making on screen
Impossible dream…..”

The Rover

“Come and see me and maybe you’ll die
But I can keep you in artwork, the fluid kind
That’s enough for excitements today
Prostrated faded, it’s pay-to-play
Come and see me yeah, maybe you’ll try
I’ve been holding these pyros till they could fly
Open up and enlighten again
Enjoy the skyline, it’s an incremental end
Walk in on your own feet
Says the rover
It’s my way or they all leave
Says the rover….”
