Tell me what it’s like to be with you
Remind me of the things we used to do
And tell me that this time will never end
Tell me what it’s like
Tell me again

I hate to be one of those people who just posts lyrics on their blog and thinks that that qualifies as having written something. Especially when it’s whiny emo lyrics. I’ve just had a lot of music in my head these last few days.

Everytime you stay it never feels quite the same
And everytime you go it hurts a way you’ll never know
I guess your stories make me feel like it’s all right now

I wish I had a better vocal range so that I could make a better run at singing along with some of these songs. Songs always seem to be just high enough that I can’t hit the notes without straining (or slipping into falsetto) but not so high that I can really get away with dropping it down an octave. I just wait until no one is around and sing it an octave lower anyway.

I wish I didn’t say I’m sorry
I wish you loved me still the same
I wish I wasn’t such a wishy-washy prick
I wish I said just how I felt

I’m also a big sucker for embarrassing emotional songs. Slow ballads with a good piano accompianment.

And I still hold your hand in mine
In mine when I’m asleep
And I will bear my soul in time
When I’m kneeling at your feet

As in, embarrassing to be caught listening to them so much. Actually, it’s also kind of embarrassing what a large portion of my “Most Played” list in iTunes is either from a Disney movie or Fraggle Rock.

What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we’ll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers, and me

I rediscovered Draco and Bastella the other day. I missed them. And all the others. I would have looked for them as well, but the light wasn’t quite good enough for it. I hope one day soon I’ll get further out into the countryside, out where people have their cottages on the river’s beach, and look for the milky way again.

Happiness is finding a pencil, pizza with sausage, telling the time
Happiness is learning to whistle, tying your shoe for the very first time
Happiness is playing the drum in your own school band
And happiness is walking hand in hand


The songs were:
1. Tell Me by Goldfinger (two blocks)
2. January by Goldfinger
3. Goodbye My Lover by James Blunt
4. The Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog
5. Happiness from You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown
