Monthly Mix :: June 2012 :: A Heart Full of Mess and Lore  

June
With a heart full of mess and lore
We are doomed but we wanted more



TOUCH THE SKY - JULIE FOWLI
Where dark woods hide secrets
And mountains are fierce and bold
Deep waters hold reflections
Of times lost long ago

I will heed every story
Take hold of my own dream
Be as strong as seas are stormy
And proud as an eagle skein

OH MARCELLO - REGINA SPEKTOR
Oh, Marcello
Never thought I'd really love you but I do so
My headwaiter's head on your platter
Just say the word and I'll make you kiss my gutters

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

IN CALIFORNIA - JOANNA NEWSOM
And if you come and see me you'll upset the order
You cannot come and see me for I set myself apart
But when you come and see me in California
You cross the border of my heart

Well, I have sown untidy furrows 'cross my soul but I am still a coward
Content to see my garden grow so sweet and full of someone else's flowers
Sometimes I can almost feel the power
Sometimes I am so in love with you
Like a little clock that trembles on the edge of the hour
Only ever calling out "cuck-oo, hoo-oo, hoo-oo"

LEARN ME RIGHT - BIRDY & MUMFORD AND SONS
Though I may speak some tongue of old
Or even spit out some holy word
I have no strength with which to speak
When you sit me down and see I'm weak

We will run and scream
You will dance with me
We'll fulfill our dreams
And we'll be free

We will be who we are
And they'll heal our scars
Sadness will be far away

THE END - ALLISON WEISS
Boy you make it easy
To forget we ever met
All this talk of keeping touch
There's been no talking yet so
Tell me when you're ready man
And I'll call you my friend
But I don't mind
Calling this the end

Boy you make it easy
For a girl to lose her head
Losing sleep and losing time
Hey losers never win so
Shake my hand call it a tie
And I'll call you my friend
But I don't mind...
Calling this the end

LONDON - VANESSA CARLTON
You've got a knife-throwing kind of love
But your silence cuts the deepest
And I know I've made a mess of things
And I'm sorry for all that
Wish we could get the time back

'Cause I've never been so sure
That after all these years I'll never learn
That heavenly creatures never come

BLOW AWAY - A FINE FRENZY
Hey, hey you, yeah you gotta be leaving,
Say what you want, what you say, say anything
No one knows just how deep it goes
We are old in your teenaged tyranny
And all you need is a hunger to feed
I've got my own secrets though, say what?

With a heart full of mess and lore
We are doomed but we wanted more

OLD LOVE - THE ROCKET SUMMER
Carving their names into sap bleeding songs.
The movie script it lasted sixty-six years long.
And there was hurt and there was death and there was friction but better yet
An adventurous story as they told it.

But I've got some problems with the way I tick.
We are addicted to the world and we want more of it.
My generation heard of old love and commitment, but did it stick?

CIRCA '46 - THE ROCKET SUMMER
Life will write the words, but you choose your own melody
Yes, life has given me hurt, but I choose my own melody
And sometimes it's that sad, sad song I'm singing all my day long
I'm just trying, trying to find the right notes

A misty eyed stranger said the songs words inspire
If they really knew -- would it break their hearts? --
That there's dirt that my soul keeps; if there’s any good in me,
It comes from the grace of my Father.

BROKEN HEART - MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK
I’ll devise the best disguise
A brand new look and take them by surprise
They’ll never guess what’s not inside
I’ll express myself with ease,
With confidence and character complete
With fingers crossed, they’ll talk to me

But I get carried away with every page
In every magazine
The cheaper the thrill,
the deeper I fill my head with blasphemy
There's so much to say
But no words to convey
The loneliness building with each passing day
But I’m getting used to it
You have to get used to it

SOLDIERS - THE ROCKET SUMMER
And this road I'm on, sketchy it may be
Greens chances
To beat the odds the devil has for me

And I'm never going to miss a beat
'Cause brother, I'm a soldier
No, I'm never going to miss a beat
'Cause I got to be a soldier
And in heaven, maybe He
Is smiling down on me
But behind those doors of my heart I am crying

BAD IDEA - MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK
I'd like to tell you all my bad ideas
I hang them with the good to dilute the awful truth
I've been asleep for nearly fifteen years
All dreams I've never had outweigh the life I'm not yet living
I've felt along the walls of here and there
But nothing ever seemed quite right
So I kissed off into the night
There was a thought, there was a bleeding thread
But nothing ever lasts that long within the confines of my head

I'm here to tell I'm not okay
And all those things you can never say out loud
I want to tell you there was no one that I ever believed in more than you
I want to know if there was anyone you ever believed in more than me

COLD, KIND, AND LEMON EYES - MARGOT & THE NUCLEAR SO AND SO'S
Oh, God, deliver me
From my enemies
These women in green
Winter coats
Working for the tip
Don't paint your lips

And don't bite, I'm bating you
And don't cry, 'cause they want you to
Mama, I'm sleeping it off
Worn thin from red lights and scotch
How I hate being cross
But you should hold your booze

HOW MUCH MORE - STARS
How much more am I supposed to take
How much more am I supposed to break
You asked for time, and time takes you away
I'm alone and you're, you're a man
I need you closer to me

My hands are tied
Because I won't say goodbye
I tried
I told you I was brave but I lied
Is this the story or
Is this the end

FOREST EYES - JINJA SAFARI
I know that your into Salinger
And you wanna be his character,
I know that your so sophistica,
And I know you live ironica

But I never saw the light in city skies,
And I never saw the light burn in-
Forest eyes.

COMING AROUND - A FINE FRENZY
We have big dreams, and big dream takers
Ladders, chutes and ladders
Cutting new cloth,
From our grandparents' patterns
And big dream takers
They come in at the sun
Just to see what would happen

Cool! I'm trying to grab a bunch of summer-y songs after realizing that a depressing amount of my iTunes is about winter. :)

I've never heard any of the songs you've put on here, but the lyrics sounded too interesting for me not to take this!

thank you so much for sharing ♥
