Tricks of the Trade - by Mew

What they gonna do to me?
Just when I thought I’d be
Done with all the memories
She’s calling me
Trouble in her family

What they gonna do to me?
Just when I thought I’d be
Letting go of every hope clawing me
Trouble in her family

Hey! Too dark to see
Take a chance and shimmer
No! Why does it have to be?
It’s always you and me

Hey! Too dark to see
Take a chance and shimmer
No! Why does it have to be?
It’s always you and me

What they gonna do to me?
Just when I thought I’d be
Done with all the memories
She’s calling me
Trouble in her family

What they gonna do to me?
Just when I thought I’d be
Letting go of every hope clawing me
Trouble in her family

Hey! Too dark to see
Take a chance and shimmer
No! Why does it have to be?
It’s always you and me

Hey! Too dark to see
Take a chance and shimmer
No! Why does it have to be?
It’s always you and me

This in which we couldn’t see
This in which we tried so hard finding
How our creased hearts binding
Pushes you again to never see your friends
To rip apart the lights of those
Whose love deprives you
And it’s this in which we couldn’t see
This in which we tried so hard finding
How our creased hearts binding
Pushes you again to never see your friends
To rip apart the lights of those
Whose love deprives you

Hold On - by Angus and Julia Stone

And I'm waiting for the day
I know you've got your part
And I'm waiting for the day
I know you'll have the heart

And I'm hoping that you'll say
That you loved me all this time
But it turns out just the same
And you break apart the things I find

Hold on, what did you say that for?
Hold on, what did you say that for?
Hold on, what do you take me for?
Hold on, what did you say that for?

And I'm waiting for the day
Inside my mother's clothing store
And I'm waiting for the day
What am I waiting for?

Hold on, what did you say that for?
Hold on, what did you say that for?
Hold on, what do you take me for?
Hold on, what did you say that for?

Hold on, what did you say that for?
Hold on, what did you say that for?
Hold on, what do you take me for?
Hold on, what did you say that for?

Someone Great - by LCD Soundsystem

I wish that we could talk about it,
But then, that's the problem.
With someone new I couldn't start it,
Too late for beginnings.
The little things that made me nervous,
Are gone in a moment.
I miss the way we used to argue,
Locked in your basement.

I wake up and the phone is ringing,
Surprised, as it's early.
And that should be a perfect warning,
That something's a problem.
To tell the truth I saw it coming,
The way you were breathing.
But nothing can prepare you for it,
The voice on the other end.

The worst is all the lovely weather,
I'm stunned it's not raining.
The coffee isn't even bitter,
Because, what's the difference?
There's all the work that needs to be done,
It's late for revision.
There's all the time and all the planning,
And songs to be finished.

And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
Till the day it stops
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
Till the day it stops
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
And it keeps coming,
Till the day it stops.

I wish that we could talk about it,
But then, that's the problem.
With someone new I could have started,
Too late for beginnings.
You're smaller than my wife imagined,
Surprised you were human.
There shouldn't be this radio silence,
But what are the options?

When someone great is gone.
When someone great is gone.
When someone great is gone.
When someone great is gone.
When someone great is gone.
When someone great is gone.
When someone great is gone.
When someone great is gone.

We're safe, for the moment.
Saved, for the moment.

Intil - by Menomena

I never thought I'd lie
But you don't wanna know
So now there's a divide
We used to be close

In order to be nice
I only show you half
The rest I gotta hide
'Cause you don't understand

Sometimes I say too much

Times that I'm with you
I'm really not myself
'Cause you don't want the truth
You want someone else

Sometimes I'm saying
Sometimes I'm saying
I admit
Sometimes I say too much
I admit
Sometimes I say
I admit
Sometimes I say
I admit
Sometimes I say too much
I admit
Sometimes I say too much

I never thought I'd lie...

Tithe - by Menomena

spending the best years of a childhood horizontal on the floor
like a bobsled minus the teamwork and the televised support

and nothing sounds appealing, appealing
and nothing sounds appealing, appealing

someone retired on a percentage of the tithe that paved these roads
they lead to nowhere but they're still gridlocked, made of Solomon's pure gold
beneath the door frame waiting for earthquakes after the rapture comes and goes
the saints went marching, the trumpets sounding, the chosen ones are phoning home

and nothing sounds appealing, appealing
and nothing sounds appealing, appealing

and nothing sounds appealing, appealing
and nothing sounds appealing, appealing

Cosmic Love - by Florence & the Machine

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I haven't made a Christmas album for friends and family in five years! Sheesh. I have made mixes for coworkers and friends, but haven't really kept track of which songs and who I gave them to. Anywho, this one's for my brother Kyle, as I will be seeing him for turkey today.

Currently rereading A Room With a View. Rewatched the movie yesterday. Happy sighs.

Tempest - by VNV Nation

These are not words, they're only feelings
There are no sounds that you can hear
There is no form that you can touch
There are no colors for you to see

The only sound is a distant thunder
A tempest rages so far away from me
I walked for miles and I started running
Towards the sound and storm where you might find me
Towards the sound and storm where you might find me

And I ran until I had the feeling
That the tempest I had heard surrounded me
Here my heart so filled with loving
Cried out and told of wonders that I feel
Cried out and told of wonders that I feel

Here my heart is so filled with loving

And I tell myself, I keep repeating
That your ways are bringing you to me
And I tell myself, I keep repeating
That your ways are bringing you to me

And I tell myself, I keep repeating
That your ways are bringing you to me
That I will find my true salvation
That these ways of mine are bringing you to me

That I will find my true salvation
That these ways of mine are bringing you to me
And I tell myself, I keep repeating
That your ways are bringing you to me, are bringing you to me

Because here my heart, so filled with loving
Crying out the wonders that I feel
Here I will find my true salvation
And my ways are bringing you to me

I tell myself, I keep repeating
That your ways are bringing you to me, bringing you to me

Say (All I Need) - by OneRepublic

Do you know where your heart is?
Do you think you can find it?
Or did you trade it for something
Somewhere better just to have it?
Do you know where your love is?
Do you think that you lost it?
You felt it so strong, but
Nothing's turned out how you wanted

Well, bless my soul
You're a lonely soul
Cause you won't let go
Of anything you hold

Well, all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

Do you know what your fate is?
And are you trying to shake it?
You're doing your best and
Your best look
You're praying that you make it

Well, bless my soul
You're a lonely soul
Cause you won't let go
Of anything you hold

Well, all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

I said I all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Better than you had it
Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Do you think you can find it?
Yeah, better than you had it (Better than you had it)

I said I all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

I said I all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
My head

Do you know where the end is?
Do you think you can see it?
Well, until you get there
Go on, go ahead and scream it
Just say it
