I’ve been having kind of a rough time lately. Maybe it’s because Roomie’s mom came to visit and I’m lonely, or because I’ve been watching all kinds of artsy movies and they always mess me up. Regardless, I’ve been listening to some pretty sad music and haven’t had a whole lot to say that the songs don’t say better than I would.
Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers, “Milwaukee (Live at Webster Hall)” who’s that? i SAID who is that? i was trying to sleep. i thought I’d get away and just relax and i hear this little noise, it’s keeping me up… who’s there? it says “hey, it’s me, your heart”
“not now, i was just gonna sleep”
“not, no sk, we gotta talk. it seems like you stopped listening to me. it seems like you stopped listening to me. i said bum bum bum right now, i said bum bum so loud”
“alright i’ll keep listening. it’s just that it’s been a tough year. all these people i love are gone from here. my grandmother, my mother in law… i still miss my grandfather every day. so i just thought i would shut you off cause i done had enough.”
and my heart says “NO. if you shut me off, what’s the point?”
Dawes, “A Little Bit Of Everything” somewhere a pretty girl is writing invitations to a wedding she has scheduled for the fall. her man says “baby, can I make an observation? You don’t seem to be having any fun at all.”
she says “you just worry about your groomsmen and your shirt size and rest assured that this is making me feel good. I think that love is so much easier than you realize. if you can give yourself to someone then you should ’cause it’s a little bit of everything, the way you joke, the way you acheb it is getting up before you so I can watch you as you wake. so in that day in late September, it’s not some fucking little ring, I’m getting a little bit of everything.”
Passenger, “Let Her Go” only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low, only hate the road when you’re missing home
