Monthly Mix :: March 2012 :: My Lips Could Build a Castle


March
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off



KNOPE 2012 - ADAM WARROCK
It's like, yes we can even though we say no
2012 that's the plan, got me ready to go
'Cause if you can't believe in people,
Then why bother to start?
And I believe in Leslie Knope from the bottom of my heart

TEN CENT BLUES - EISLEY
But who could blame
A fraction of her being?
She is cheesy, she is scrawny
With her uncanny styling
I'm teasing, she is pleasing
She just has no wit

I'm sorry I don't have her face
And I'm probably gonna lose this race
There is no doubt she's such a mouse
With such an abstract grace

ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS (LIVE) - FUN.
Every single night ends up the same,
I don't say much at all, but I bring up your name.
(Over and over and over)
I think it's striking me out.

All the pretty girls on a Saturday night
Let it be, and come to me with the look in your eyes.
Will you break and take all the words from my mouth?
I wish all the pretty girls were shaking me down.
But not you,
you still wear boots and your hair is too long
and then this one doesn't want to admit she's fallen in love
Oh c'mon, oh c'mon, what's a boy to do
When all the pretty girls can't measure to you.

SOME NIGHTS - FUN.
Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights, I call it a draw
Some nights, I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights, I wish they'd just fall off

Well, Some nights, I wish that this all would end
Cause I could use some friends for a change
And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights, I always win, I always win...

RIBBONS - INGRID MICHAELSON
I'm sitting pretty and I don't know why
I found somebody, said he'd make me fly
Wrapped me up in ribbons then he left me to die
Wrapped me up in ribbons then he left me to die

You look so pretty in the dark of night
But I'm getting wise in the early light
I can see you falling like a homemade kite
I can see you falling like a homemade kite

You put your sunday best on for us all
Painting up a promise that you know will fall
Wrap me in your ribbons tie me to the wall
Wrap me in your ribbons tie me to the wall

COIN LAUNDRY - LISA MITCHELL
So there I was
Sitting on the top of the world
In a coin laundry
Well I could have been royalty
Sitting in the palace like a queen

Do you have a dollar? Do you have a dollar for me?
Maybe just an hour or two and a pot of tea
Do you have a memory? Do you have a memory for me?
Tell me bout the days when you were seventeen

I GIVE UP - MERRIMENT
I can’t sit here for another half-second
If my heart insists on beating for you
And your mind is a million miles away
And you can’t even bring yourself to say
That you don’t need me
Though you think about me
It’s been two years now
You still don’t love me
But someday you might
Someday, yeah right

BLESSED SOUL - MERRIMENT
Indeed I am a blessed soul
I’m captive in this human role
I wear inside, ribcaged in, a heart so fine
I’ll let you in, let you in

Knock once more upon the door
The wood is dense but this makes sense
There beneath the walls, I love
The chorus that goes from above, from above

And if you choose to let me love you
Our love, our love would reach the sky
No bounds, no bones, no breaks, no trials
Just you, just me, our love goes free

THROUGH THE ROUGH - MERRIMENT
Maybe in a day or so
I’ll be alright, yeah I’ll be feeling fine
And maybe if I let you go
I’ll be alright, yeah I’ll be alright

But it’s times like these that make the difference
When it’s not what you need
And it’s people like you, people like you
That pull me through, you pull me through

Well it takes you through the rough times
And it brings you through the bad
And it’s fine if you don’t want to be mine
But at least admit that you’ll be sad

DUMB LOVERS - PEARL AND THE BEARD
Now that we're nestling, please just keep one thing in mind
That I won't ask of you anything more than we take this in stride
'Cause it's a beautiful organism, and its cells could divide
We could be free dumb lovers, alive

You don't really want a man like me
Spend another day sleeping

ALL THE ROWBOATS - REGINA SPEKTOR
All the rowboats, in the paintings
They keep trying to row away
And the captain's worried faces
Stay contorted and staring at the waves
They'll keep hanging, in their gold frames
For forever, forever and a day
All the rowboats, in the oil paintings
They keep trying to row away, row away

Hear them whispering, French and German
Dutch, Italian and Latin
When no one's looking, I touch a sculpture
Marble, gold, and soft as satin
But the most special are the most lonely
God, I pity the violins
In glass coffins, they keep coughin'
They've forgotten, forgotten how to sing, how to sing

DON'T LEAVE ME (NE ME QUITTE PAS) - REGINA SPEKTOR
Down in Paris they walk fast
That is, unless they're walking slow
And in cafes they look away
That is, unless they look right in
And in the gardens I get lost
That is, unless I'm getting found
And if you are the ghost of New York city
Won't you stick around?

MOVE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BLOCK - THE ROCKET SUMMER
So I'll move to the other side of the block
So we won't ever have to stop
Making the rounds, having the laughs
Singing the sounds of relaxing,
And on the other side of the clock
The power switch will be turned off
And all will be well and time will stand still,
And I will be locked out from my jail.

HOME - SHE & HIM
You're the nicest, nicest boy I've ever met and then
I think about you then I think about you again
And again

Why don't we just sit and stare and do nothing?
Nothing at all for a while
I like the way you smile

GO RIGHT AHEAD - SONDRE LERCHE
If I have a choice I guess I'll soon be here tomorrow,
Passing through the corridors in dim and fleeting sorrow,
Counting down the passes of a never typical heartbreak
Puppy loves the frostings on a constant ice-cream headed

I think I know all things,
For example,
I know I know nothing,
Oh Lord, what a glorious save.
You make my day.

DEAR CALIFORNIA - VANESSA CARLTON
But your face is like a paper-cut to the heart
Slip away while you sleep
Oh he loves me as I leave, so I'm gonna go
And I'm not in companies when you feel it most
And you keep my memory, hope ya keep me close
Would you love me as I leave?

Ever-changing as the sea
Would you love me as I leave?
Dear California
Would you love me as I leave?
Dear California
