Monthly Mix :: November 2011 :: Drawn So Sweet and Fine


November
I saw a life and I called it mine
I saw it drawn so sweet and fine


FINGERS CROSSED - ALLISON WEISS
Wake up and shake off sleep
'Cause there's work to do today
I need time, I need direciton
I need something to say.

I got my fingers crossed
And my hopes are high
So I'll try to stay calm
Try to stay dry

TRY TO UNDERSTAND - ALLISON WEISS
I'm sorry that I never could
Quite say this to your face
Always hiding behind melody lines
Hooks that keep me safe

And I know this may be catchy
But I know you can't relate
So what's possible's impossible
And that I won't debate

LIFE'S A HAPPY SONG - THE MUPPETS
Everything is great, everything is grand
I got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand
Everything is perfect, it’s falling into place
I can’t seem to wipe this smile off my face

Life smells like a rose
With someone to paint
And someone to pose

MAN OR MUPPET - THE MUPPETS
Am I a man?
Or am I a Muppet?
If I'm a Muppet
Then I'm a very manly Muppet

Am I a Muppet?
Or am I a man?
If I'm a man
That makes me a Muppet of a man

ALL OVER YOU - THE DITTY BOPS
How many wasted days
Wasted nights on you
I can't even count that high
Haven't I tried to
I gave myself a second chance
A chance to let you go

Well it's simply
It's simply not true
When I say
Oh I'm over all over I'm over
I'm all over you
Oh I'm over all over I'm over
I'm all over you

SAILOR SONG - FIRST AID KIT
It was easier when I knew nothing of what I'd missed
You're so happy I can see it and that's the worst part of it
So let her take you out on sea
I will wave to you from the harbor oh little silly me

The sailors leave in the morning
I'll be waiting for you all night
The ship sets off in the morning
I'll be waiting for you all right

SIM SALA BIM - FLEET FOXES
Then the Earth shook, that was all that it took for the dream to break
All the loose ends would surround me again, in the shape of your face

What makes me love you despite the reservations?
What do I see in your eyes?
Besides my reflection hanging high?

BOY FROM SCHOOL - GRIZZLY BEAR
Now I find you on the street
Breaking rules hopelessly we meet
Lives are found but loves are lost
Say goodbye to everything nothing caused

LIKE LAVENDER - HORSE FEATHERS
And I'll wait, I'll wait.
Take a ticket to my own fate.
Maybe I'm too late.

Some things always stay the same.
How you looked wet from all the rain.
Some things always stay the same.

OVERSLEEPING - I'M FROM BARCELONA
Damn! Oversleeping again
Damn! I can't believe I did it once again

I can make it in time
If I jump out of bed
If I skip to wear clothes
And get running instead
If I get on my feet
If I skip to hit snooze
If I don't care to eat
And get running instead
I can make it in time

Okay, so I overslept one day and this song came up on my iTunes when I woke up. WHAAAAT.

MEN OF SNOW - INGRID MICHAELSON
And winters come, and my love, the winters go
And time stacks up in piles like winter snow
And everything you love and hold so dear
Won't really matter when we disappear

FLIGHTLESS BIRD, AMERICAN MOUTH (WEDDING VERSION) - IRON & WINE
I was a quick-wit boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your street light eyes
Wide on my plastic toys
Then when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big pill looming

GOOD INTENTIONS PAVING COMPANY - JOANNA NEWSOM
How I said to you, "honey, just open your heart"
When I've got trouble even opening a honey jar
And that right there is where we are...

And I been 'fessing double fast
Addressing questions nobody asked
I'll get this joy off of my chest at last
And I will love you 'til the noise has long since passed

SHE SAID YES - MUMFORD & SONS
So you've come pretty far from your wedding day
I'm proud of you brother I have to say
You weathered the storms and you followed our dreams
And now it's just you and your queen

THUMPER - MUMFORD & SONS
You can leave your keys in the car
You can leave your love at the bar
And you don't even have to go that far
To get all that you want from me
Well I don't know who you are to me

THIS IS THE END (IF YOU WANT IT) - RELIENT K
I've been convincing myself that I'm worthwhile
Cause I'm worth what I'll convince myself to be

Blisters on my feet I crawled back home
Frozen from the sleet burned sand and stones
Nourished back to life by life alone
With one shake of the mane regain the throne

HOW MANY TIMES - THE ROCKET SUMMER
Takin' your advice
next to ocean blue eyes
Yeah, you'll drown but what a pretty color
Breakin' every bone just so you are not alone
Sure makes you feel older

And I believe in love
Does love believe in us?
Lookin' for an answer
'Cause I don't know

I THOUGHT I SAW YOUR FACE TODAY - SHE & HIM
I saw it glitter as I grew
And loved a boy I never knew
I thought this place was heaven-sent
But now it's just a monument
In my mind, in my mind
And I couldn't help but fall in love again

THIEVES - SHE & HIM
What's in my pocket?
You never knew
You didn't know me well
So well as I knew you

And I know, and you know too
That a love like ours
Is terrible news
But that wont stop me crying
No, that wont stop me
Crying over you

GET LONELY - THE MOUNTAIN GOATS
I will rise up early and dress myself up nice
And I will leave the house and check the deadlock twice
And I will find a crowd and blend in for a minute
And I will try to find a little comfort in it

And I will get lonely
And gasp for air
And send your name off from my lips
Like a signal flare

ON A GOOD DAY - JOANNA NEWSOM
I saw a life and I called it mine
I saw it drawn so sweet and fine
And I had begun to fill in all the lines
Right down to what we'd name her

Our nature does not change by will
In the Winter 'round the ruined mill
The creek is lying flat and still
It is water though it's frozen

MELT MY HEART TO STONE (ACOUSTIC) - ADELE
Right under my feet is air made of bricks
That pulls me down turns me weak for you
I find myself repeating like a broken tune
And I’m forever excusing your intentions
And I give in to my pretendings
Which forgive you each time
Without me knowing
They melt my heart to stone

And I hear your words that I made up
You say my name like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head I’m the only one in love
I’m the only one in love
