Transcript of But really, this is actually my Life Soundtrack.

This is Me:
By Marazh Munoz
My journey,
and the music that accompanied me.
"Ribbons Undone" by Tori Amos
Monday

Sunday
Graham and I are fighting; a lot. I don't know if we'll make it through this time.
There is more to my life than my chaotic relationship though...
I wake up this morning feeling okay; I've accepted the reality and know it's time to rebuild.
Turns out we don't make it this time.
For example; there's my chaotic relationship with my mom!
Graham calls, we talk for hours; maybe this really will work. Its gonna be hard.
Thursday
When I wake up I feel invincible. I tell myself "time to get your shit together".
Nothing to do during the day, working late the next day, and it's been a long week; the sun is up before I go to sleep that day.
Another late work day means another long night, This time it's still dark when my head hits the pillow.
For me, this song has a deep set emotional connection to my mother and stirs up many memories; girlie shit like my first period, and talking to my mom about my first kiss. I've been listening to Tori Amos, and specifically this song, literally all my life -my mother had her playing when I was born.
I mentioned to you that I was moving back in with my mom. That didn't last two hours before I packed a bag and slept at Graham's. I'm pretty sure that if I were to fight the way I do with my mother with anybody else BUT my mother, I would kill them. What this song really reminds me of is that my mother is human too, and nothing she will ever say or do to me will be purely malicious.
Not to mention all my father figures;
First lets talk about Adrian:
I spent probably an hour looking for a song that says "I don't give a damn about you" (in so many words), and then I thought "that's stupid" and I moved on. Adrian is my biological father.
Then there's my dad, Nathan, who's not my dad but used to act like it (and now he doesn't):
Bitch - Meredith Brooks
"this is gonna work"
This video is ridiculous...
I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
All rolled into one

[Chorus:]
I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean
You'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won't mean a thing

[Chorus]

Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season's already changing
I think it's cool, you do what you do
And don't try to save me

[Chorus]

I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb, I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way
This week was a crazy one...
Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner
Sometimes I feel like my only friend
Is the city I live in, the city of angels
Lonely as I am, together we cry

I drive on her streets because she's my companion
I walk through her hill because she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds and she kisses me windy
I never worry, now that is a lie

I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way
I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

It's hard to believe that there's nobody out there
It's hard to believe that I'm all alone
At least I have her love, the city she loves me
Lonely as I am, together we cry

I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way
I don't ever want to feel like I did that day
Take me to the place I love, take me all the way

(Under the bridge downtown)
Is where I drew some blood
(Under the bridge downtown)
I could not get enough
(Under the bridge downtown)
Forgot about my love
(Under the bridge downtown)
I gave my life away
Weep for yourself, my man
You'll never be what is in your heart
Weep little lion man
You're not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rape yourself
Take all the courage you have left
Wasted on fixing all the problems
That you made in your own head

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?

Tremble for yourself, my man
You know that you have seen this all before
Tremble little lion man
You'll never settle any of your score
Your grace is wasted in your face
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
Learn from your mother
Or else spend your days biting your own neck

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Leave the past behind
Just walk away
When it's over
And my heart breaks
And the cracks begin to show...

Set Fire to the Rain - Adele
I let it fall, my heart
And as it fell, you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true
And the games you play, you would always win, always win

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cry
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

When laying with you
I could stay there, close my eyes
Feel you here, forever
You and me together, nothing is better

'Cause there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win
But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin' die, 'cause I knew that
That was the last time, the last time

Sometimes I wake up by the door
Now that you've gone, must be waiting for you
Even now when it's already over
I can't help myself from looking for you

I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Let it burn while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where I felt somethin' die
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time, oh
My mother went into treatment for drug about when I was around four and I spend two years living with my dad, whom she had been in a relationship with and wanted to remain apart of our lives after they split up. After moving back in with my mother, I still spend weekends, holidays, and summers with my dad and his mother who I referred to as my Grandma.
My dad had absolutely zero idea anout how to raise children, but he loved me and my brother, and I know he did the best he could. I've been listening to these songs most of my life (my dad used to sing Paul Revere to us to get us to sleep), and they always bring back fond memories of spending spring break snowboarding in New York with my dad.
Paul Revere - Beastie Boys
Nellie the Elephant - Toy Dolls
To Bombay a travelling circus came
They brought an intelligent elephant
and Nellie was her name

One dark night she slipped her iron chain,
and off she ran to Hindustan
and was never seen again

oooooooooooooooooo...

[Chorus:]
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and said goodbye to the circus
off she rode with a trumpety trump
trump trump trump
Nellie the elephant packed her trunk
and trundled off to the jungle
off she rode with a trumpety trump
trump trump trump

Night by night she danced to the circus band
When Nellie was leading the big parade
she looked so proud and grand
Now here's a little story I've got to tell
About three bad brothers you know so well
It started way back in history
With Adrock, M.C.A., and me - Mike D.
Been had a little horsy named Paul Revere
Just me and my horsy and a quart of beer
Riding across the land, kicking up sand
Sheriff's posse on my tail cause I'm in demand
One lonely Beastie I be
All by myself without nobody
The sun is beating down on my baseball hat
The air is gettin' hot the beer is getting flat
Lookin' for a girl I ran into a guy
His name is M.C.A., I said, "Howdy" he said, "Hi"

He told a little story that sounded well rehearsed
Four days on the run and that he's dying of thirst
The brew was in my hand and he was on my tip
His voice was hoarse, his throat was dry he asked me for a sip
He said, "Can I get some?"
I said, "You can't get none!"
Had a chance to run
He pulled out his shotgun
He was quick on the draw I thought I'd be dead
He put the gun to my head and this is what he said,

"Now my name is M.C.A. I've got a license to kill
I think you know what time it is it's time to get ill
Now what do we have here an outlaw and his beer
I run this land, you understand I make myself clear."
We stepped into the wind he had a gun, I had a grin
You think this story's over but it's ready to begin
"Now I got the gun you got the brew
You got two choices of what you can do
It's not a tough decision as you can see
I can blow you away or you can ride with me" I said, I'll ride with you if you can get me to the border
The sheriff's after me for what I did to his daughter
I did it like this, I did it like that
I did it with a whiffleball bat
So I'm on the run the cop's got my gun
And right about now it's time to have some fun
The King Adrock that is my name
And I know the fly spot where they got the champagne."
We rode for six hours then we hit the spot
The beat was a bumping and the girlies was hot
This dude was staring like he knows who we are
We took the empty spot next to him at the bar
M.C.A. said, "Yo, you know this kid?"
I said, "I didn't." but I know he did
The kid said, "Get ready cause this ain't funny
My name's Mike D. and I'm about to get money."
Pulled out the jammy aimed it at the sky
He yelled, "Stick 'em up!" and let two fly
Hands went up and people hit the floor
He wasted two kids that ran for the door
"I'm Mike D. and I get respect
Your cash and your jewelry is what I expect"
M.C.A. was with it and he's my ace
So I grabbed the piano player and I punched him in the face
The piano player's out the music stopped
His boy had beef and he got dropped
Mike D. grabbed the money M.C.A. snatched the gold
I grabbed two girlies and a beer that's cold.
Next is Dan:
My mom met Dan when she moved to New York after completing her in-patient drug therapy
at a Native American reservation in Portland,
OR. They became friends and mutual
supports after meeting in an out-patient
group, and two years later they moved
in together. Her and Dan were together
for nearly 10 years, during which we
moved to Madison where she completed
her bachelors degree. Shortly after
moving here, Dan had a heart attack
and needed a quadrupl bypass. During
the procedure, plaque islodged from
his arteries, shooting into his brain and causing dementia. My mothers relationship with Dan deteriorated in the years following his surgery
due to his massive personality switch, and they
eventually split up.
What Sarah Said - Death Cab For Cutie
And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to father time
As I stared at my shoes in the ICU that reeked of piss and 409
And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself that I'd already taken too much today
As each descending peak on the LCD took you a little farther away from me
Away from me

Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines in a place where we only say goodbye
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds
But I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never lain beside at all
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground as the TV entertained itself

'Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
Just nervous pacers bracing for bad news
And then the nurse comes round and everyone will lift their heads
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said that "Love is watching someone die"

So who's going to watch you die?..
I heard this song shortly before Dan's heart attack, and the words replayed in my head again and again over the preceding years as I watched Dan deteriorate from the man who gave me the best childhood anyone could ask for. I barely remember Dan as he was, he was apparently confident, funny, and smart. He owned a Co-op with his ex wife, and kayaked to Alaska after fighting in Vietnam. He took us sailing on his boat, getting second place in a 4 day race, an 8 year old me on the helm. That man is lost, and the saddest part is that he knows it, and he knows that man is missed.
A long, long time ago
I can still remember how
That music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while
But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step
I can't remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died(*)

[Chorus]

Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so
Now do you believe in rock and roll
Can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow

Well, I know that you're in love with him
'Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the music died
I started singin'

[Chorus]
Now, for ten years we've been on our own
And moss grows fat on a rolling stone
But, that's not how it used to be
When the jester sang for the king and queen
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
And a voice that came from you and me
Oh, and while the king was looking down
The jester stole his thorny crown
The courtroom was adjourned
No verdict was returned
And while Lennon read a book on Marx
The quartet practiced in the park
And we sang dirges in the dark
The day the music died
We were singin'

[Chorus]

Helter skelter in a summer swelter
The birds flew off with a fallout shelter
Eight miles high and falling fast
Landed flat on the grass
The players tried for a forward pass
With the jester on the sidelines in a cast
Now the half-time air was sweet perfume
While sergeants played a marching tune
We all got up to dance
Oh, but we never got the chance
'Cause the players tried to take the field
The marching band refused to yield
Do you recall what was revealed
The day the music died
We started singin'

[Chorus]
Oh, and there we were all in one place
A generation lost in space
With no time left to start again
So come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
'Cause fire is the devil's only friend
And as I watched him on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in Hell
Could break that Satan's spell
And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day the music died
He was singin'

[Chorus]

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play
And in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died
And they were singin'

American Pie - Don McLean
And of course, there is Doug:
One thing we used to do in New York when I was little was chase storms. During big rain storms, we'd all jump in the car and go driving around, listening to music and trying to keep up with the storm. We would listen to "American Pie" every time, and sing along.
My mom and Doug met
when she got a job working for It's
Your Party. Having recently gotten
out of an incredibly hard
and intense relationship,
she entered this one with
much trepidation. Doug
is a wonderful man and has
offered us a strong shoulder
to lean on more than once in
the time he's spent with my mother.
While I do see Doug as my stepfather,
I see him first
as my mothers partner.
Clumsy Card House - Blue October
La Grange - ZZ Top
I really associate this song with the beginning of my mom's relationship with Doug. I would play it for her as my way of telling her "it's okay to want to be with him, it's okay to fall in love".
This song just always makes me think of Doug. It's his favorite song.
By the way
By your side I'll stay
If that's okay
Then by your side I'll stay forever
Here I am standing up
Because I want to fall in love with you

A sunless day
It was a clumsy card house rape
If that's okay
Then by your side I'll stay forever

Here I am standing up
To say I want to fall in love with you
Forever
Here I am standing up
To say that I want to fall in love

All our kids will play
A sunless day
The rain will come
The rain always brings our hero
All our kids will play
A sunless day
The rain will come
The rain always brings our here

Believe in heroes
Rumour spreadin' 'round
In that Texas town
About that shack outside La Grange
And you know what I'm talkin' about.
Just let me know
If you wanna go
To that home out on the range.
They got a lot of nice girls.

Have mercy.
A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
A haw, haw, haw.

Well, I hear it's fine
If you got the time
And the ten to get yourself in.
A hmm, hmm.
And I hear it's tight
Most every night,
But now I might be mistaken.
hmm, hmm, hmm.
This song is about a whore house in La Grange, Texas.
"In a rainy day dream I saw my future child and wife. It was perfect."
- Justin Furstenfeld, lead vocalist of Blue October, when asked to comment on "Clumsy Card House"
I'm in a crisis
I need help come on mood shift shift back to good again
Come on be a friend

Nina twin is trying to help and I
Really hope that she succeeds
Though I picked the thorny path myself
I'm afraid: afraid of where it leads

Chemicals don't strangle my pen
Chemicals don't make me sick again
I'm always so dubious of your intent
Like I can't afford to replace what you've Spent

Nina twin is trying to help and I
Really hope she gets me straight
Cause my own inner cosmology
Has become too dense to navigate

Chemicals don't flatten my mind
Chemicals don't mess me up this time
Know you bait me way more than you should
And it's just like you to hurt me when I'm feeling good
Although I don't really know if I believe him, the artist of this song has stated that it is about the literal chemicals in your brain (serotonin) which make you happy. I probably would have believed that before watching this video. I took this song in it's more literal sense.
Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy Moley, Me-oh-My, you're the apple of my eye
Girl, I've never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you're my best friend,
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain't nothin' that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie,
chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain't nothin' please me more than you

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I'm with you (2x)
La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I'm coming Home
[Chorus] x2

I'll follow you into the park,
through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I've never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls,
alley ways & pay phone calls
I've been everywhere with you
That's true

We laugh until we think we'll die,
barefoot on a summer night
Nothin' new is sweeter than with you

And in the streets we're running
free like i's only you and mee
Geez, you're somethin' to see.

[Chorus] x2

La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I'm coming Home
Jade?
Alexander?
Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?
Isure do, you came jumping out after me.
Well, you fell on the concrete
and nearly broke your ass
and you were bleeding all over the place
and I rushed you off to the hospital.
Do you remember that?
Yes, I do.
Well, there's something
I never told you about that night.
What didn't you tell me?
While you were sitting in the backseat
smoking a cigarette you thought
was going to be your last,
I was falling deep, deeply in love with you
and I never told you 'til just now.
Now I know.
Home - Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes

Woke up in London yesterday
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
Don't really know how I got here
I got some pictures on my phone

New names and numbers that I don't know
Address to places like Abbey Road
Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want
We're young enough to say

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Col-or-ado

Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
We are god of stories but please tell me-e-e-e
What there is to complain about

When you're happy like a fool
Let it take you over
When everything is out
You gotta take it in

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life
Hopelessly
I feel like there might be something that I'll miss
Hopelessly
I feel like the window closes oh so quick
Hopelessly
I'm taking a mental picture of you now
'Cuz hopelessly
The hope is we have so much to feel good about

Oh this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

Oh yeah
Good, good life
Good life

Listen
My friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Col-or-ado

Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out
Sometimes there's bullshit that don't work now
We are god of stories but please tell me-e-e-e
What there is to complain about

Lyrics:
Things have calmed down, no more fighting with Graham, or my mother. I look back at the trials of this week alone, and then the trials of my farther past. Life is good, and I'm moving forward.
She's a girl
Rising from a shell
Running to spring
It is her time it is her time
Watch her run with ribbons undone

She's a rose in a lily's cloak
She can hide her charms
It is her right there will be time
To chase the sun with ribbons undone

She runs like a fire does
Just picking up daises
Comes in for a landing
A pure flash of lightening
Past alice blue blossoms
You follow her laughter
And then she'll surprise you
Arms filled with lavender

Yes my little pony is growing up fast
She corrects me and says
"You mean a thoroughbred"
A look in her eyes says the battle's beginning
From school she comes home and cries
I don't want to grow up Mom at last not tonight
Ribbons Undone- Tori Amos
China - Tori Amos
Please Don't Leave Me - Pink
Da da da I could cut you into piecesda
da da da da

Da da da da da,

I don't know if I can yell any louder,
How many times have I kicked you out of here?
Or said something insulting?

Da da da da da

I can be so mean when I wanna be,
I am capable of really anything,
I can cut you into pieces,
When my heart is, broken.

Da da da da da

Please don't leave me [x2]
I always say how I don't need you
But it's always gonna come right back to this
Please don't leave me

How did I become so obnoxious,
What is it with you that makes me act like this,
I've never been this nasty,
Can't you tell that this is all just a contest?
The one that wins will be the one that hits the hardest,
But baby I don't mean it,
I mean it, I promise

Da da da da da

Please don't leave me [x2]
(Don't leave me)
I always say how I don't need you
But it's always gonna come right back to this
Please don't leave me

I forgot to say out loud,
How beautiful you really are to me,
I can't be without,
You're my perfect little punching bag,
And I need you,
I'm sorry.
Da da da da
da da da da

Da da da da da

Please, please don't leave me
Baby, please don't leave me (no, don't leave me)
Please don't leave me
(I always say) I always say how I don't need you
But it's always gonna come right back to this

Please don't leave me, (Yeah)
Please don't leave me
(I) I always say how I don't need you,
But it's always gonna come right back to this,
(Please, Please) Please don't leave me,
Baby, please, please don't leave me.
Lyrics:
All the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close
You're right next to me
But I need an airplane
I can feel the distance as you breathe
Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build the great wall around you
In your eyes I saw the future
Together you just look away in the distance

China decorates our table
Funny how the cracks don't seem to show
Pour the wine dear
You say we'll take a holiday
But we never can agree on where to go

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build the great wall around you
In your eyes I saw the future
Together you just look away in the distance

China all the way to New York
Maybe you got lost in Mexico
You're right next to me
I think that you can hear me
Funny how the distance
Learns to grow

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build the great wall around you
In your eyes I saw the future
Together you just look away in the distance

I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance getting close
Lyrics:
Warning: This song is explicit and super intense.
This video is actually not the official music video. It is a college students class project. I did not actually realize that it wasn't Adele in the video until I read the comments on Youtube.
Later that day...
The Final Countdown - Europe
We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown
The final countdown

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
'Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all, yea
With so many light years to go and things to be found
(To be found)
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so

It's the final countdown
The final countdown
The final countdown
(The final countdown)
Ohh ho oh
The final countdown, oh ho
It's the final countdown
The final countdown
The final countdown
(The final countdown)

Ohh
It's the final countdown
We're leaving together
The final countdown
We'll all miss her so
It's the final countdown
(The final countdown)
Ohh, it's the final countdown
Yea
Lyrics:
This song has no real sentimental meaning to me aside from that it's a EPIC pump up song! I imagined it playing when I was getting ready in the morning, psyching myself up to deal with the day.
You want me to come over, I got an excuse
Might be holding your hand but I'm holding it loose
Got to talk then we choke, it's like our necks in a noose
Avoid the obvious we should be facing the truth

Start to think it could be fizzling out
Kinda shocked me 'cause I never really had any doubts
Look into your eyes, imagine life without you

And the love kick starts again (kick starts again...) [x2]

It's the same old you, the same old me
You get bored and I get cold feet
Get high, get wandering eyes
Forget I've never ever had it so sweet
I realize what I got when I'm out of town
'Cause deep down you're my girl in a golden crown
My princess and I don't wanna let you down

And the love kick-starts again (kick starts again...) [x2]

You want me to come over, I got an excuse
Might be holding your hand but I'm holding it loose
Got to talk then we choke, it's like our necks in a noose
Avoid the obvious we should be facing the truth
Start to think it could be fizzling out
Kinda shocked me 'cause I never really had any doubts
Look into your eyes, imagine life without you

And the love kick-starts again (kick starts again...) [x2]

It's the same old you, the same old me
You get bored and I get cold feet
Get high, get wandering eyes
Forget I've never ever had it so sweet
I realize what I got when I'm out of town
'Cause deep down you're my girl in a golden crown
My princess and I don't wanna let you down

And the love kick-starts again (kick starts again...)

And the love kick-starts again (love kick starts again...)
Lyrics:
Kickstarts - Example (Bar 9 Remix)
Warning: Dubstep is not for everyone
You Make Me Smile - Blue October
Some kind of light
at the end
When touching
the edge of her skin

Once so hard to speak
Now so easy to play around
Catching your eye you know
That eye that slapped you in your face
calls you a puppy
Well how do you say
I was hypnotized
Hypnotized

My words, they pour
Like children to the playground
Children to the playground
You make me smile

[Chorus]
There's some kind of light at the end
Stoned, forgetful, and then
I'm drinking what used to be sin
And touching the edge of her skin
And could you be the one that's not afraid
To look me in the eye
I swear I would collapse
If I would tell how I think you fell
From the sky

My words, they pour
Like children to the playground
Children to the playground
You make me smile

[Chorus] x2

It's the feeling I get
My palms with sweat
Like some kind of daydream
I'll never forget
I'm stuck in this spin
Why does it begin
By touching the edge of her skin
[Chorus] x2
Lyrics:
We Are Young - Fun
Give me a second I,
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State
My lover she’s waiting for me just across the bar
My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses asking bout a scar, and
I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
The holes in my apologies, you know
I’m trying hard to take it back
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

[Chorus]
Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun
Now I know that I’m not
All that you got
I guess that I, I just thought
Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
But our friends are back
So let’s raise a cup
‘Cause I found someone to carry me home

[Chorus] x2

Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)

The world is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
The angels never arrived
But I can hear the choir
So will someone come and carry me home

[Chorus[ x2

So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight

Lights - Ellie Goulding (Bassnectar Remix)
Lyrics:
I had a way then losing it all on my own
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown
And I'm not sleeping now the dark is too hard to beat
And I'm not keeping now the strength I need to push me

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine It when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine It when I'm alone

Home

Noises, I play within my head
Touch my own skin and hope that I'm still breathing
And I think back to when my brother and my sister slept
In an unlocked place the only time I feel safe

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone

'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone

Home

Yeah, hee

Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights

Home, home
Light, lights, lights, lights
Light, lights, lights, lights
This song has no real deep meaning to me either, it's sort of just my party song
Heimdalsgate Like A Prometheon Curse - Of Montreal
Lyrics:
Good Life - OneRepublic
I especicially love the part where she says, "I don't envy you"
You're a girl
Rising from a shell
Running through spring
With summer's hand in reach now
It is your time
It is your time
So just run with ribbons undone
It is your time yes my angel
It is your time
So just run with ribbons undone

Run run darlin'
Ribbons undone
Lyrics:
No more tricks for Nellie to perform
They taught her how to take a bow
and she took the crowd by storm

oooooooooooooooooo...

[Chorus x2]

The head of the heard was calling far far away
they met one night in silver light
on the road to Mandalay

oooooooooooooooooo...

[Chorus x2]
Lyrics:
This is a remake of a childrens lullably that my grandma used to sing to my dad. Toy Dolls was one of my fathers favorite bands growing up so this song is a fond memory for him in more than one way. He used to play it for my my and my brother, and our dog would howl along to the chorus

My life Setlist:
I had trouble thinking of this project as a timeline, so I decided to go about it more thematically. It turned into somewhat of a thinking board, and served to let me think about it very creatively. These are all songs that evoke a strong feeling in me, be it their words and the meaning behind them, or allowing me to think back to the period in my life when I first heard each song. Music has played such an important role in my life, and the songs that strike a cord tend to stick with me; although my playlist changes drastically depending on my mood. I had a lot of fun doing this project, and it really made me think about who I am as a person, and helped me realize just how important the music I listen to really is to me.
Enjoy,
