Monthly Mix :: February 2012 :: We Drown If There's No Hope


February
Boat at sea, see it float
We drown if there's no hope


BIRD OF THE SUMMER - A FINE FRENZY
You came with the season,
As the first swallow sang
A brown headed stranger,
With a five-letter name

The fields where we wandered were golden
Now only muddy my boots
And I know I should recover,
You're a bird of the summer,
I was wrong to try and capture you

JULY 25, 2007 - ALLISON WEISS
But it's all good,
'Cause I'm no good
And believe me,
You don't need me.
It's a big world,
And I'm old news to you.

I woke up at seven
Rode the bus until eleven
Called ex-lovers, and my brother,
Hoping someone was awake

ODDS OF BEING ALONE - AMY STROUP & TRENT DABBS
Watching your world spin
Feel farther from it now
With nowhere to begin how are you to figure it out

I need answers now 'cause I am caught off guard
The quiet feels so loud
Tell me this is the hardest part
Tell me this is the hardest part

Wouldn't you like to know
The odds of being alone

BE GOOD UNTIL THEN - BUTCH WALKER & THE BLACK WIDOWS
And its okay to cry
If you feel it comin on
It'll let you know you're human in the end
All these things will mean more when I'm gone
Just be good until then

Try to see the best inside the bad
No matter how many drinks you had
Never make a promise you'll regret come sunrise

LIGHTS OUT - EISLEY
Lights out
I'm on your feathers
Wings out
I'm a bird, I'm a bird
Mountain tops
Make me feel better
When we're aloft

Boat at sea, see it float
We drown if there's no hope
Take my hand, lets step outside
See? We are still home

DEEP SPACE - EISLEY
So here we are were lifting off
And I can see the falling clouds
So brace yourself and breathe love
Breathe breathe breathe love
The roaring of our golden ship
The calling of our black home
It quickens our hearts to explode like engines
So reach for my hand
We have reached deep space.

ONE LAST SONG - EISLEY
In days that are dark,
You'll never fail to be honest
And beautiful.
I can see this happening for a reason.
This new season
Is redemption.

WHY AM I THE ONE - FUN.
She's got enough on her mind
That she feels no sorrow
I let my fate fill the air
So now she's rollin' down her window
Never been one to hold on
But I need a last breath
So I ask if she remembers when
She used to come and visit me
We were fools to think that nothing could go wrong

Go on, go on, go on
If you were thinking that the worst is yet to come
Why am I the one always packing all my stuff?
For once, for once, for once,
I get the feeling that I'm right where I belong
Why am I the one always packing all my stuff?

ALL ALONE - FUN.
I can't be you
I thought you might appreciate
The way that she dances
The painted look upon her face
She must have come from the sun
I want to take her through the park
Where she'd tell me I'm all that she wants
If she could even talk

I feel so all alone
No one's gonna fix me when I'm broke
How do you cry with inanimate eyes?
You're never gonna smile with the way that you are

OUT ON THE TOWN - FUN.
I was out on the town
So I came to your window last night
I tried not to throw stones
But I wanted to come inside
Now I'm causing a scene, thinking you need a reason to smile
Oh no, what have I done?
There's no one to keep me warm

And I know I could be more clever
And I know I could be more strong

I knew there would come a day when all was said and done
Everything I was is everything but gone
All my big mistakes are bouncing off your wall
The bottles never break, the sorrow never comes
So come on let me in, I will be the sun
I will wake you up, I am who I was
Just open up your heart, open up your heart, open up your heart
(And I know I could be more clever
And I know I could be more)

SAFE IN L.A. - GOLD MOTEL
Every time we're endin', every conversation
It doesn't sound quite right
And California's waitin'
While your face is fading
Near out of sight

Safe in L.A.
Baby don't fear, I'm always near
Never too far from where you are
Coast away, waitin' for the day when we're both safe in LA
Maybe we're right, maybe we're wrong
Maybe we're both too far gone
Coast away, waitin' for the day when we're both safe in LA

HOW WE LOVE - INGRID MICHAELSON
So he turned to the radio
And he went to a picture show
Tried to find someone else who knows
All the hurt that a heart can hold

She smelled like cinnamon and winter clove
And sparked like firewood inside a stove
Wanted to ask her just to sit and stay
Instead he watched as she walked away

We hate the rain when it fills up our shoes
But how we love when it washes our cars
We love to love when it fills up the room
But when it leaves oh we're cursing the stars

LAST MAN - JED WHEDON AND THE WILLING
Last man left is left alive
You're in the fire of a fight
High end, all right
Shinin' in infrared light
You're in my telescopic sight
High end, all right

2 ATOMS IN A MOLECULE - NOAH AND THE WHALE
But then I woke from the dream
To realize I was alone
A tragic event, I must admit
But let's not be overblown
I'm gonna try to write a love song
Just a sad, pathetic moan
And maybe I just need change
Maybe I just need a new cologne

Oh if love is just a game
Then how come it's no fun?
If love is just a game
How come I've never won?
I guess maybe it's possible I might be playing it wrong
And that's why every time I roll the dice
I always come undone

THE BELLY IN THE FISH - PAGE FRANCE
Little dove to the belly of the fish
You'll get used to it
I cracked your egg to hear you chirp again
Now, I'm losing it
It rains the most on the head of the weatherman
I boast the ghost who was spit out of his own skin

Now, you look like me, chasing rabbits
Up and down the trees
Soon my habits will find you, my darling
Underneath the leaves

COME RIGHT OUT AND SAY IT - RELIENT K
Why don't you
Come right out and say it?
Even if the words are probably gonna hurt
I'd rather have the truth than something insincere
Why don't you
Come right out and say it?
What it is you're thinking
Though I'm thinking it's not what I wanna hear

I better check my pride
Because I was starting to think
I was on to something good
But things started to slide
And I sit here in retrospect
And understanding that I misunderstood

PULL MYSELF TOGETHER (DON'T HATE ME) - THE ROCKET SUMMER
And how will you understand?
As if I would back then.
How will they understand,
that's who I was not who I am?
And I'm not a perfect soul,
and I'll fall again, I know, but oh

I must pull myself together
This is a brand new day
Pull myself away from my mistakes
Pull myself together,
It's time to let the waves just take me, pull me away

PEACE COME OVER YOU - THE ROCKET SUMMER
It’s hard trying to hold on
With all that I have lost
It all seems so wrong
But I trust in You, oh God.

So will You hold me?
As I’m crushed, my heart is in pieces
And although I’m strong when I bleed
Right now, I’m just too weak

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG - SUCRE
Who will brace me
From my painful, sudden fall
When we were young
I never had to worry
I never even cared
'Cause something always came my way
When we were young
I never was repeating
The sentiment again and again
Oh, something's gotta come my way

THE CAVE (MUMFORD & SONS COVER) - VANESSA CARLTON
Because I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it's meant to be

And I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck

And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again
