Monthly Mix :: April 2012 :: Butterflies Around a Flame

Better late than never?

April
Like butterflies around a flame
'Til ashes, ashes, we fade away



I'M READY - ALLISON WEISS
Hey, you feelin' something?
I say I'm all for jumping
Off this cliff, yeah, this is it,
Or could be, anyway

Hey, don't act suprised
I say let's take the dive
Off this cliff. Yeah, this is it
Or could be, anyway

I'm ready if you're ready
Well, I'm ready, are you ready?
'Cause my heart is breaking
While you're taking your time
No telling where we're going
But I'm going if you're going
Just tell me, baby
Am I wasting my time?

BETTER GIRL - BEST COAST
And it's no fun when I'm staying up late
And it's no fun when you're breaking a date
And it's no fun what I'm putting inside of me
It's making me crazier

And it's no fun when I'm always alone
And it's no fun when I'm always at home
And it's no fun when you're sitting without me
Always sitting without me

TYING MY SHOES - CAROLINE SMITH AND THE GOOD NIGHT SLEEPS
So you're going to town, have to open my mouth
And empty the contents onto the floor
But if I'm ever supposed to ask you to take it out
Then I'm only several inches from the door

BIRDS OF A FEATHER - THE CIVIL WARS
Oh, aren't we a pretty, pretty pair?
Yes, we are
All, all the king's horses
And all of his men
Couldn't tear us apart

Dancing with a ball and chain
Through it all we still remain
Like butterflies around a flame
'til ashes, ashes, we fade away

COME BACK DOWN - GREG LASWELL FT. SARA BAREILLES
You’ve got to take it on your own from here
It’s getting pathetic and I’m almost done here
You’ve got to take it on your own from here
It’s getting pathetic and I’m almost done here

BLACK AND BLUE - INGRID MICHAELSON
I'm black and blue
And in love with you
You said, you never would let me fall
You never would let me fall, but I'm falling
You never would let me fall, you never would let me fall, but I'm falling

Oh I know I'm never gonna stop
I keep burning time away until I hit the top
One day I'll wake up and take up to the open skies
And I'll be the one with all the sweet goodbyes

ME AND MY SHADOW - M. WARD
There is a shadow everyone has heard,
At night he turns into a mocking bird,
If I whistle in the dark you will do that do,
I have met him on the road,
A silhouette on a black highway
I said, "You can have this world,
This world is not my own,"
Then he said "You can keep this world,
This world is not my home."

I GET IDEAS - M. WARD
Your eyes are always saying
The things you'll never say
I think they could be saying
That you could love me too.
But that's the whole idea, it's true,
The lovely idea
That I'm falling in love with you.

SLOW MOTION MACHINE GUN - PEARL AND THE BEARD
Oh I'll wait for you, oh I'll wait for you
but not for much longer, oh not for much longer
Oh I'll pray for you, oh I'll pray for you
but not for much longer, oh not for much longer
And I will do what's right
and I will do what's right
and I will do what's right
but not for much longer

JASPER CHRISTMAS - PEARL AND THE BEARD
I don't want to stay, I don't want to stay
I don't want to stay, I don't want to stay
I don't want to stay, I don't want to stay
I don't want to stay, I don't want to stay
Break, break, break it open, crack it up

SWIMMING - PEARL AND THE BEARD
You know they say, they always say
That things will get better
If you believe in love, believe in hope
Believe in the way that you feel
But my trouble is
My troubles aren't real

They're real enough (and hurt as much)
That yes they are happening
But their burden bears upon this soul
They're weightlessness
Boring a whole
It's deep enough to die

SMALL TOWN MOON - REGINA SPEKTOR
Must have left a thousand times
But every day begin the same
'Cause there's a small town in my mind
How can leave without hurting every one who made me?
How can leave without hurting every one who made me?

Oh baby, baby it's all about the moon
I wish you wouldn't have broke my camera
'Cause we're gonna get real old
Real soon

Today we're younger than we ever gonna be

SO MUCH LOVE - THE ROCKET SUMMER
Hearts need a mind
Like a clock needs the time
Like white needs black
If you leave I hope you need to come back

Oh, I swear, I know, I believe it
Oh, I can't stop hearing all the singing
Oh, my soul has never had this feeling
It feels like gold

You got so much love in You
You got so much love in You
I'm amazed that I'm talkin' to You
You look like the songs that I've heard my whole life coming true

TREASURES - THE ROCKET SUMMER
So I'll fall asleep and try not to think twice
About all the things that forever
Will kick me down the steps
For being too nice
'Cause everyone's searching for treasure

And they'll just dig, dig, dig
Until they cant get out
And dying dirty digging for treasure
But as for me I'm giving up and I'll take my bow
And focus on my treasure forever
Yes, I know that my treasure is Heaven

DEAR CHICAGO - RYAN ADAMS
My life's gotten simple since
And it fluctuates so much
Happy and sad and back again.
I'm not crying out too much
Think about you all the time
It's strange and hard to deal
Think about you lying there
And those blankets lie so still

RICOCHET - SONDRE LERCHE
Wouldn't it be nice if we were close
But pretending that we were could kill the ghost
Maybe I cooperate
But I'm done
That's not breaking news
You cannot turn the volume down
As you choose

Somewhere in a house across the sea
Maybe in a distant memory
Now and then you reappear
Out of nowhere
Like some ricochet
Now you wait against the current in
Our old bay

YOU - TALLY HALL
There's always something that's worth believing in
Keep uncovering more at the thought it's for you

In the warm sun
Past the winter
Here and ever hear forever
In the motion
Frozen quiet
Still it's spoken heart unbroken

JUST WATCHING MY BREATH - TOWN HALL
One day I'll bear your last name
And I'll write it after mine
Photograph the children
Matching sweaters in a line
The mountain air will rid you of
The broken glass collecting in your spine
Don't you see this humble life with me
Would be just fine?

We shed our shoes deciduously
For boots warm enough to brave the snow
Walk slow with your arms around me
No darkness follows down this path

THIRD OF LIFE - A WEATHER
No matter when I lie down
The day always has the same length
I try to wake with the dawn
But still the dark comes just as fast

And the small birds make cute shadows on the white water
And the brick wall, and the wood shed.
It smells like a gym when you sleep under the bedspread
And you won't know until you leave and come back in again.
