PYH - Doodle - Fairytales
"High Life", by Counting Crows.


All my friends got flowers in their eyes
But I got none this season
All of last years blooms have gone and died
Time doesn't give a reason
Hey maybe you ask yourself sometimes what you need to be forgiven
Every thing that you've ever done wrong is the reason that I'm driven
Straight to tears

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I get my ends and my beginnings mixed up too
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two

[speaking] it's just like answers
That come in small packages
With gold on them

Waiting for the trains that just never come
Beginning to believe in
The disappearing nature of the people we have been
We have begun to change
Into the worst kind of people
So what kind of apologies?
No apologies
This apology doesn't describe
The way it feels to feel for you
Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I find myself slowly disappearing too
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might want to help me to remain with you

I just wanna stay for a little while
I wanna stay for a little while
Oh, come on, come on, come on, come on
Cause there's a night life just falling down on me
I just feel like a change
But if the southern summer sea of flowers
Wont bloom without the rain
But oh this desert life, this high life
Here at the dying of the day
I wasn't made for the scene, baby
But I was made in this scene, baby
Its just my way
I don't wanna go home alone
I wanna come on home to you

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I line my sky with all the silver I can use
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two

[speaking] isn't that just like disappearing into the sum of yourself
And the person you are disappearing into
Its like one plus one equals nothing at all
One plus two equals nothing at all
One plus me equals nothing at all
One plus you equals one plus you equals you and you and you and you and
Nothing at all
Nothing at all


Counting Crows is totally Doodle's music. And I love him.

(They're playing Miami on Tuesday. I cannot afford. Le sigh.)

What's your song for today?

I have NO idea why, but I woke up this morning with Nilsson's version of

Ya put the lime in the coconut
And drink it all up

Sometimes my brain strikes me dumb and all I can do is stand in the middle of the room and blink.

One I'm sure you can relate to about now... yesterday evening I was following the call of filial piety to install an air conditioner and hang some curtains at my parent's house, interspersed with smiling and nodding at their comments on healthcare and immigration. I've had Oysterband's "Not Like Jordan" stuck in my head since.

The Ballad of G.I. Joe is my song of the day.

13th-Aug-2009 04:59 pm (UTC) - Green Day: "Before the Lobotomy"
Dreaming
I am only Dreaming
Of another place and time
Where my Family's from

also

Christians lesson is what he's been told
We are normal and self controlled
Remember to learn to forget
Whiskey shots and cheap cigarettes


(Oh to discover you can't remember years of your life, you are going to have to, and you'd really rather just have your hazy memories instead. Daydreams that got you through the tough years (just no drugs for me personally). But the only way to heal your body is to face your mind. It sucks about now.)

Dying
Everyone's reminded
Hearts are washed in Misery
Drenched in gasoline

My song today is the "Do, Re, Me Song"
y'know about beer? It's been in my head all day.

Counting Crows where here yesterday. One of my friends was working the show.
