Monthly Mix :: May 2012 :: The Stars Are Still Shining On Me


May
Stop in the dark
Where the stars are still shining on me



THE SPINE SONG - CAKE BAKE BETTY
But your birthday inflated
The bones with which you creak
They stole your shoes then brought you to
The caverns of their teeth
You pleaded, "Oh kind sir,
please let me say goodbye."
Your soul ripped from your stomach
You gave an awful cry
A cry, a cry, a cry...

And when I have died
Will you use my spine
To swing from tree to tree in search of
Places pleasing to the eye?

TRUE ROMANCE - MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK
I'm pathetic, overly apologetic
I'm a tightrope tragedy
You're chicken little
I'm a monkey in the middle
There is something wrong with me

Humming a slightly varied tune
Opposite angles of the moon
Buried in layers of ourselves
Leaves room for no one else

GONE - KINA GRANNIS
Stop in the dark where the stars are still shining on me
Go with the wind, let it lift away the memories
I tried to set you free
You kept trying to rescue me
But you can't tell a heart when to start, how to beat

I never wanted to say goodbye
You never wanted to see me cry
Now I'm afraid to open my eyes
Are you gone, gone, gone?
Tell me I'm wrong, wrong, wrong
It's been so long, long, long
Are you gone, gone, gone?

IN YOUR ARMS - KINA GRANNIS
Take my hand
Let's go into the trees
Behind the branches
Falling on our knees
I remember feeling like this part of us will never change

SKINNY LOVE (BON IVER COVER) - BIRDY
Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My my my my my my my my my...
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted
Then who the hell was I?
Cause now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

WHITE WINTER HYMNAL (FLEET FOXES COVER) - KINA GRANNIS
I was following the pack all swallowed in their coats
With scarves of red tied 'round their throats
To keep their little heads
From falling in the snow
And I turned 'round and there you go
And Michael, you would fall
And turn the white snow red as strawberries in the summertime

FIREWOOD - REGINA SPEKTOR
The piano is not firewood yet
But a heart can't be helped
And it gathers regret
Someday you'll wake up and feel a great pain
And you'll miss every toy you ever owned

You'll want to go back
You'll wish you were small
Nothing can slow the crying
You'll take the clock off of your wall
And you'll wish it was lying

LIGHT UP - SUCRE
Light up, carry me home
You're so weak, but I want you to know
You light up the world for me
Oh, you light up the world for me
Oh

When I'm down, you change me
Like the route
You've found me
You tell me over tea

MANEK AND ILONA - PEARL AND THE BEARD
Me a living namesake
A stranger living side by side in a mirror
I am you, you are me, we are one
Will you not remember?
And forgive all the battles lost
And even those, those we thought had been won

And why not?
And why not?
Say that we are beautiful?
Cause we are
Cause we are
Cause we are

FAMILIES - JINJA SAFARI
Oh, I wish I'd shown more love
Maybe it was my fault
I never meant to turn your heart into a bomb
Hang on a second, can we calm this commotion?
Love runs deeper than any of these emotions

Your life's better than you can say
You've done nothing and it's all fine

HOW - REGINA SPEKTOR
So baby
How can I forget your love?
How can I never see you again?
How can I ever know why some stay and others go?
When I don’t, ooh
I don’t want you to go
I guess I know by now
That we will meet again somehow

Time can come and wash away the pain
But I just want my mind to stay the same
To hear your voice
To see your face
There’s not one moment I’d erase
You are a guest here now

SAY SOMETHING - SUCRE
Please say something
'Cause everyone thinks you're gone
And they were right baby, you're gone
I'll never see you again
Unless you wait up, holding my hand

You stole my heart and in the dark
You say that you were right there
But you're not
I can't believe you again
And so I wait up, I have to pretend

LIAR, LIAR - A FINE FRENZY
Sick and tired of this mad desire
Fluttering inside me like a hawk
Wire, wire, got my hands on wires
Will heaven help you when I get them off?
Right between the ribs, you'll feel it then

Oh, oh, the sirens sang so sweet
And watched the sailors going down
Oh, oh, you talked to me in siren song
Yeah, anyone would drown
Anyone would drown

THE PARTY - REGINA SPEKTOR
For every road we can retrace
For every memory we can’t face
For every name that’s been erased
Let’s have another round
May I propose a little toast?
For all the ones who hurt the most
For all the friends that we have lost
Let’s give them one more round of applause

You’re like a party somebody threw me
You taste like birthday
You look like New Year
You’re like a big parade through town
That leaves such a mess but you’re so fun

JESSICA - REGINA SPEKTOR
Jessica, wake up
It's February again, we must get older, so wake up
I can't write a song for you
I'm out of melodies
I can't write a song for you,
but I am asking please, Jessica, wake up.

COLD - AQUALUNG & LUCY SCHWARTZ
Crimson and bare as I stand
Yours completely
Yours
As we go over

Sing for the lion and lamb
Their hearts are hunting
Still hearts hold
Ever and ever
Ever

200,000 - THE ROCKET SUMMER
There are not one but two hundred thousand miles on my car
To be with you I've driven far
But I loved you that much.
Yes I made those morning coffee drinks
At four AM for a ring
But I loved you that much.
I stood up to that gang by myself when they messed with you
I had no help, but I loved you that much.
And remember the time I wrote that song
And many folks sang along?
Yeah I loved you that much.

Older times are out of sight.
I thought about it and I kinda died.
A kid and kite, a flickering light.
I thought about it, I thought about and I kinda died.
Because all good things come to an end.
But the end will be the dirt between us.
The end will be the dirt will be the end.

CRAZY FOR YOU - BEST COAST
I can't do anything without you
Can't do anything with you
You drive me crazy but I love you
You make me lazy but I love you
Want to hate you but then I kiss you
Want to kill you but then I'd miss you
You drive me crazy but I love you
You make me lazy but I love you
