catch the wind

"in the chilly hours and minutes
of uncertainty
i want to be
in the warm hold of your lovin' mind
to feel you all around me
and to take your hand
along the sand,
ah but i may as well try and catch the wind"

"found yourself in a new direction
aeons far from the sun
can you come?
would they come to breach you?
let you know you're not the only one
you can't keep hangin' on
to all that's dead and gone
if you built yourself a myth
you'd know just what to give
do you lie?
oh, let the ashes fly"

"the truth is unspoken, a promise is broken
i'm under surveillance, they know what my name is
i need some protection, some love and affection
there's 1000 reasons but one is the number

welcome to my spaceship
you're beautiful forever
she's right here where you left her
and the heart's a lonely hunter"

i escape

"i only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy,
and when ordinary life shackles me 
i escape
one way or another-
no more walls"

metal heart

"it's damned if you don't and it's damned if you do
be true 'cause they'll lock you up in a sad sad zoo
oh what cha trying to prove
hiding you're not worth a thing

sew your fortunes on a string
and hold them up to light
blue smoke will take
a very violent flight
and you will be changed

i once was lost but now i'm found was blind
but now i see you
how selfish of you to believe in the meaning of all the bad dreaming

metal heart you're not hiding
metal heart you're not worth a thing"

-from metal heart by cat power

"i heard you were here then you disappeared last night
when they killed the lights
words we didn't say
your eyes that took us down two more
and we were ready for
you came up behind me, grabbed my wrists in the dark
and said 'don't look at what you can't see'"

"people are strange when you're a stranger
faces look ugly when you're alone
women seem wicked when you're unwanted
streets are uneven when you're down

when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name

when you're strange"

"with piranha teeth

and the taste of your love so sweet
honest its true

through my heart flows sleep
and the dark heavy rain
where the gravedigger's song is sung
you've been torturing me"

- from the gravedigger's song by mark lanegan band
(completely obsessed with this song right now...)

"you live your life
you go in shadows
you'll come apart and you'll go black
some kind of night into your darkness
colors your eyes with what's not there...
...fade into you
i think it's strange you never knew"

the answer lies with you

"so if you wake up with the new sunrise
and all your dreams are still as new
and happiness is what you need so bad, girl
the answer lies with you...
catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today
way up high in the sky"

when they still live on

"it was a matter of perspective, i began to see.
the whole world was crazy; i'd flattered myself
by assuming i was a semifinalist."

- from one of my favorite books she's come undone by wally lamb

don't you go it makes no sense
and all these talking supermen
just take away the time just to get it away
ain't it just like rain
cause love is only heaven away
inside you the time moves and she don't fade
the ghost in you she don't fade

-from ghost in you by the psychedelic furs
