    "Now I don't know, but I been told
    It's hard to run with the weight of gold,
    Other hand I have heard it said,
    It's just as hard with the weight of lead."--Grateful Dead New Speedway Boogie

    "My window opens on your heart
    Yet shadows divide our worlds with loss
    The light setting, in the corner of my room
    Isn't enough, but is it for you?
    A melody that trails and falls, yet never fully blooms
    Plays like an old song
    That’s just out of tune
    Why can't you just break free?
    Is it the heat dreams, that fevers brought you?
    These old shadows (they're just shadows)"

    Shadows by Future Islands.

    This whole song is amazing, but the just shadows part when Debbie Harry is singing just rips me apart.

    If you don't golf that's okay
    You can be a tiger anyway
    Lie Through your teeth when things get tough
    Or your balls are gonna wind up in the rough, yeah yeah

    If you wanna be like Tiger Woods
    Fertilizin ladies in the neighborhood
    Get real rich and you will find
    All the hot chicks will want to grind

    Just like tiger Woods by steel panther

    I found them at random on YouTube last year, the song "Like the Moon" and have been listening nonstop ever since. Some of the best written/sung songs I have ever heard.

    I'll have to listen to each song here. I'll make it a deal to do so while I do my Chinese homework on weekdays!

    I don't think that one day really relates to the next day in life--Neil Young

    So it's not a song lyric. But it's a quote from a singer/songwriter. I need to think this way in so far as making changes in my "programming."
  10. Here's two lyrics from Julien Baker

    Nothing turns out like I pictured it
    Maybe the emptiness is just a lesson in canvases
    I think if I fail again
    That I know you're still listening
    Maybe it's all gonna turn out all right
    And I know that it's not, but I have to believe that it is

    Turn Out the Lights
    Say you wish you could find some way to help
    Not to be so hard on myself
    So why is it easy for everyone else?
    I'm not always like this
    There's always tomorrow I guess

    Some depressive, yet real thought type stuff, that. Good posting! It's kind of thinking out loud lyricism.

  12. Yeah, she used to be an alcoholic and drug addict and wrote many of her songs while in recovery. I think she's 2 or 3 years sober now. I find I can relate to what she sings because she doesn't brush off hopelessness. But it also gives me hope because I feel like I can relate to her pain.

    In this case then, I'm sure you're quite familiar and acquainted with the talents of Elliott Smith. If not, you will be now :)

  14. I know some of his music but have never really gotten into it.

    Julien Baker appeared on Song Exploder to talk about the making of Appointments. I don't know if you listen to Song Exploder but it's worth listening to. It really shows how much work goes in making music and makes you appreciate the songs more.

    No stopping on the highway girl
    Because I wanna burn my gas
    Theres one girl that I know I'm never gonna pass
    She is my special
    She is my special
    She is my midnight, midnight yeah

    Highway tune by Greta van fleet
