    last song listened to...

    As I Sat Sadly By Her Side
    by Nick Cave

    (c) Nick Cave

    As I sat sadly by her side
    At the window, through the glass
    She stroked a kitten in her lap
    And we watched the world as it fell past
    Softly she spoke these words to me
    And with brand new eyes, open wide
    We pressed our faces to the glass
    As I sat sadly by her side

    She said, "Father, mother, sister, brother,
    Uncle, aunt, nephew, niece,
    Soldier, sailor, physician, labourer,
    Actor, scientist, mechanic, priest
    Earth and moon and sun and stars
    Planets and comets with tails blazing
    All are there forever falling
    Falling lovely and amazing"

    Then she smiled and turned to me
    And waited for me to reply
    Her hair was falling down her shoulders
    As I sat sadly by her side

    As I sat sadly by her side
    The kitten she did gently pass
    Over to me and again we pressed
    Our different faces to the glass
    "That may be very well", I said
    "But watch the one falling in the street
    See him gesture to his neighbours
    See him trampled beneath their feet
    All outward motion connects to nothing
    For each is concerned with their immediate need
    Witness the man reaching up from the gutter
    See the other one stumbling on who can not see"

    With trembling hand I turned toward her
    And pushed the hair out of her eyes
    The kitten jumped back to her lap
    As I sat sadly by her side

    Then she drew the curtains down
    And said, "When will you ever learn
    That what happens there beyond the glass
    Is simply none of your concern?
    God has given you but one heart
    You are not a home for the hearts of your brothers

    And God does not care for your benevolence
    Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others
    Nor does he care for you to sit
    At windows in judgement of the world He created
    While sorrows pile up around you
    Ugly, useless and over-inflated"

    At which she turned her head away
    Great tears leaping from her eyes
    I could not wipe the smile from my face
    As I sat sadly by her side

    Hmm... last one was Blind Melon's "No Rain," because it was playing in the drugstore.

    The last one that affected me deeply was one I hadn't heard in nine years (it popped up on my iPod). By a little-known Florida band called For Squirrels, part of the 1990s power-pop surge. The song, "Mighty KC" is catchy, and in some ways, it's a bit cheesy; it's about Kurt Cobain, and it's melodramatic, not particularly poetic, but here's the weird part:

    The kids - they were 21 and 22 at the time - in the band had just signed their major label deal and were driving their van back to Florida when a tire blew out, they crashed, and all but two of the band members were killed.

    Now read the lyrics:

    She lies in a bedpan with her name scrawled on her back
    It sure sounds funny when you say his name like that
    He lies in an empty room with his hair burnt to the back
    It sure sounds funny when you say his name like that

    Ship me off to the morgue
    I'm ready to be buried alone way down in my bed
    And I'm alone without the sun
    Send me off to the morgue
    I'm ready to be buried away down in my bed
    And I'm alone without the sun
    Please just take one

    And by the grace of god go I into the great unknown
    Thing are gonna change in our favor
    And if we gather, if we fall over the great unknown
    Things are gonna change in our favor

    100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 Oh they're found dead, dead
    And I am numb from watching TV
    100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 Oh they're just there, there
    And I am numb from watching TV
    Please don't break me

    And by the grace of god go I into the great unknown
    Things are gonna change in our favor
    And if we gather, if we fall over the great unknown
    Things are gonna change in our favor
    ***

    The song wound up being this eerily uptempo, yet minor-chord foreshadowing of the singer's own death.

    I interviewed the two survivors a few months later; they were trying to keep the band alive, but the lead singer, who had died, was really the cornerstone of the whole thing.

    Don't know if this makes sense without knowing the song, but I wound up crying when I was listening to it. I've interviewed a few musicians who later killed themselves (no correlation... I hope) and met many more casually, and hearing their music puts me in this melancholy headspace, even if the songs are power-pop, like Charlatans or Lush. Which takes me back to "No Rain" and the Blind Melon guy who ODed. The perkier the song, the more depressed I get remembering them.

    Listened to Jeff Buckley's "The Sky Is A Landfill" earlier...

    Circle around the park
    Joining hands in silence
    Watch the evil black the sky

    The storm has ripped the shelter
    Of illusion from our brow
    This power is no mystery to us now.

    Leave your spirit genocide
    The cancer you wonít remove
    We cast our funeral rose inside
    And bury the need to prove
    Our mutilation is to gain from the system

    Ooh, turn your head away
    From the screen, oh people
    It will tell you nothing more
    Donít suck the milk of flaccid Bill K.
    Publicís empty promise
    To the people that the public can ignore

    This way of life is so devised
    To snuff out the mind that moves
    Moving with grace the men despise
    And women have learned to lose

    Throw off your shame or be
    a slave to the system

    I see you take another drag
    One more lost soul to raise your flag
    The sky is a landfill
    I see you take another drag
    Letís see you take another drag

    You like to dance to the rolling
    Head of the adulteress
    You sing in praise of suicide
    We know youíre useless
    Like cops at the scene of the crime

    With your steroids and your feedbag
    And your stable and your trainer
    I got a mail bomb for you Mister Strong Arm.

    Throw out the stones from all the cemetery homes
    For the violence of a nation gone by

    Or the politics of weakness
    And the garbage dump of souls
    That will now black the sky

    Their yellow haze and crowds of eyes
    Will plug up the mind that moves
    Moving with grace the men despise
    And women have learned to lose
    Weíll share our bodies
    In disdain for the system

    Oh, I see you take another drag
    One nation bends to kiss the hag
    The sky is a landfill
    I see you take another drag
    I see you take another drag
    I have no fear of this machine!

    Living my Life in slow hell
    different girl every night at the hotel
    I ain't seen the sunshine in three damn days
    Fueling up on cocaine and whiskey
    Wish I had a good girl to miss me
    Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways

    I put your picture away
    Sat down and cried today
    I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her

    I put your picture away
    Sat down and cried today
    I can't look at you while I'm lying next to her



    I called you last night in the hotel
    Everyone knows but they won't tell
    But there half hearted smiles tell me something just ain't right
    I've been waiting on you for a long time
    Fueling up on heartaches and cheap wine
    I ain't heard from you in three damn nights

    I put your picture away
    I wondered where you been
    I can't look at you while I'm lying next to him

    I put your picture away
    I wondered where you been
    I can't look at you while I'm lying next to him


    I saw you yesterday with a old friend
    It was the same ol same my with my review been
    Since you been gone my worlds been dark and grey

    You reminding me of brighter days
    I hope you were coming home to stay

    I was head of the Church
    I was off to drink you away

    I thought about you for a long time
    Can't seem to get you off my mind
    I can't stand why where living life this way

    I found your picture today
    I swear I'll change my ways
    I just called to say I want you to come back home

    I found your picture today
    I swear I'll change my ways
    I just called to say I want you to come back home

    I just called to say I love you come back home

    "Delicate" by Damien Rice. Sorry, no lyrics.

  8. #8
    We might kiss when we are alone
    When nobody's watching
    I might take you home
    We might make out when nobody's there
    It's not that we're scared
    It's just that it's delicate

    So why do you fill my sorrow
    With the words you've borrowed
    From the only place (that) you've known
    And why do you sing Hallelujah
    If it means nothing to you
    Why do you sing with me at all?

    We might live like never before
    When there's nothing to give
    Well how can we ask for more
    We might make love in some sacred place
    The look on your face is delicate

    So why do you fill my sorrow
    With the words you've borrowed
    From the only place (that) you've known
    And why do you sing Hallelujah
    If it means nothing to you
    Why do you sing with me at all?

    So why do you fill my sorrow
    With the words you've borrowed
    From the only place (that) you've known
    And why do you sing Hallelujah
    If it means nothing to you
    Why do you sing with me at all?

    Here's two more I have queued up, in case anyone wants to download them if they've never heard of this guy...they're really good songs.

    Trust me.

    These are both by a fellow named Teitur.

    "You're The Ocean"

    There's too much sky, not enough blue
    There's too many questions to why I love you
    There's too many clouds, not enough sun
    The rain must fall on everyone

    I'm fire-you're the ocean
    I'm energy-you're the rhythm
    Love is somewhere in between
    What you believe and what you dream
    I'm just trying to make you mine
    You're the ocean

    There's too much doubt and not enough dare
    There's too much decision everywhere
    There's too much talk and not enough time
    Let's close our eyes and not our minds

    I'm fire-you're the ocean
    I'm energy-you're the rhythm
    Love is somewhere in between
    What you believe and what you dream
    I'm just trying to make you mine

    You look for leads, I follow clues
    You love to win, I dare to lose
    Mostly you're a mind game in my head

    You are earth, I am water
    I can give you what you're after
    You can be the word:I can be the rhyme:
    There's really nothing you can do
    You're going where I'm going too
    Stay beside me, stay beside me
    I want you

    I'm fire-you're the ocean
    I'm energy-you're the rhythm
    Love is somewhere in between
    What you believe and what you dream
    I'm just trying to make you mine
    You're the ocean


    Another good one by him is...

    "I Was Just Thinking"

    I was just thinking
    that I have been missing you for way too long
    There's something inside this weary head
    that wants us to love just instead
    But I was just thinking, merely thinking

    I've got loads of pictures
    I've got the one of you in that dancing dress
    But man I feel silly in that dim light
    Just after doing you by the sight of My Kodak delights
    I am sinking, merely sinking

    I think about long distance rates
    instead of kissing you babe
    I'm a singer without a song
    If I wait for you longer
    my affection is stronger,
    I was just thinking, merely thinking
    That this boat is sinking

    I'm tired of postcards,
    especially the ones with cute dogs and cupids
    I'm tired of calling you,
    missing you,
    dreaming I've slept with you
    Don't get me wrong I still desperately love you

    Inside this weary head I just want us to love instead
    But I was just thinking and thinking,
    merely thinking

    I think about long distance rates
    instead of kissing you babe
    And time is running me still
    If I wait for you longer
    my affection is stronger

    I was just thinking - I was just thinking
    That I'm tired of calling you once a week
    And thinking of long distance rates
    instead of kissing you
    Baby, I'm sinking


    Go download them.

    You, too, Haskins.

    Moonlight Drive by The Doors

    Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
    Let's climb through the tide
    Penetrate the evenin' that the
    City sleeps to hide
    Let's swim out tonight, love
    It's our turn to try
    Parked beside the ocean
    On our moonlight drive
    Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
    Let's climb through the tide
    Surrender to the waiting worlds
    That lap against our side
    Nothin' left open
    And no time to decide
    We've stepped into a river
    On our moonlight drive
    Let's swim to the moon
    Let's climb through the tide
    You reach your hand to hold me
    But I can't be your guide
    Easy, I love you
    As I watch you glide
    Falling through wet forests
    On our moonlight drive, baby
    Moonlight drive
    Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
    Down, down by the ocean side
    Gonna get real close
    Get real tight
    Baby gonna drown tonight
    Goin' down, down, down

    Take You Back

    Wurdwise, I love the song "Picture."

    Here's the last song I heard today coming home from work. Listening to Christian Rock countdown, this is #1 last two weeks.

    Take You Back/Jeremy CampThe reason why I stand
    The answer lies in you
    You hung to make me strong
    Though my praise was few
    When I fall and bring your name down

    But I have found in you
    A heart that pleads forgiveness
    Replacing all these thoughts
    Of painful memories
    But I know
    That your response will always be

    (Chorus)
    I'll take you back always
    And even when your fight is over now
    Even when your fight is over now
    I'll take you back always
    And even when the pain is coming through
    Even when the pain is coming through
    I'll take you back

    You satisfy this cry
    Of what I'm looking for
    And I take all I can
    And lay it down
    Before the throne of endless grace, now
    That radiates what's true

    I'm in the only place
    That erases all these faults
    That have overtaken me
    But I know
    That your response will always be

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I can only speak
    With a grateful heart
    As I'm pieced by this gift
    Of your love

    I will always bring an offering
    I can never thank you enough

    (Chorus Two)
    You'll take me back always
    And even when my fight is over now
    Even when my fight is over now
    You'll take me back always
    And even when my pain is coming through
    Even when my pain is coming through
    You'll take me back always

    Even when my fight is over now
    Even when my fight is over now

    You'll take me back always

    Even when my pain is coming through
    Even when my pain is coming through

    You'll take me back

    The Ghost Song -- Jim Morrison

    Shake dreams from your hair
    My pretty child, my sweet one.
    Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
    The day's divinity
    First thing you see.

    A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
    Couples naked race down by it's quiet side
    And we laugh like soft, mad children
    Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
    The music and voices are all around us.


    The Crystal Ship

    Before you slip into unconsciousness
    I'd like to have another kiss
    Another flashing chance at bliss
    Another kiss, another kiss
    The days are bright and filled with pain
    Enclose me in your gentle rain
    The time you ran was too insane
    We'll meet again, we'll meet again
    Oh tell me where your freedom lies
    The streets are fields that never die
    Deliver me from reasons why
    You'd rather cry, I'd rather fly
    The crystal ship is being filled
    A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
    A million ways to spend your time
    When we get back, I'll drop a line



    Ahh...The Lizard King. What a poet...

    Water to the Moon

    One of my favourite songs. Inspired by To Kill a Mockingbird. Galoot and other BC-ers, take note. This is one of your own:

    Water to the Moon

    Every single rock turned over is uncovering my doubt,
    I am on the inside wanting out
    If I left here yesterday it wouldn't be too soon
    But I am drawn to her

    Like water to the moon, like water to the moon

    If a picture paints a thousand words
    Well then she's a thousand pictures
    I would kick and fight, howl all night
    Just for one look at her scriptures
    Her majesty is her poetry
    Her words could leave a man in ruin
    And I am drawn to her

    Like water to the moon, like water to the moon

    All the pushing and the pulling
    All the come here go away
    All the stories, no, their telling
    I'm the one who has to pay

    Once a chef, once a gangster
    Now she is an actress
    Yes she borrows and she begs
    Says if you want to make an omlette in Hollywood
    You've got to break a few legs
    If she ever sang of love to me
    It would surely be out of tune
    But I am drawn to her

    Like water to the moon
    Like water to the moon
    Like water to the moon
    Like water to the moon

    Northern Sky -- Nick Drake

    I never felt magic crazy as this
    I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
    I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
    Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
    But now you're here
    Brighten my northern sky.

    I've been a long time that i'm waiting
    Been a long that i'm blown
    I've been a long time that i've wandered
    Through the people i have known
    Oh, if you would and you could
    Straighten my new mind's eye.

    Would you love me for my money
    Would you love me for my head
    Would you love me through the winter
    Would you love me 'til i'm dead
    Oh, if you would and you could
    Come blow your horn on high.

    I never felt magic crazy as this
    I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
    I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
    Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
    But now you're here
    Brighten my northern sky.

    "Scars" - Papa Roach

    I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
    My weakness is that I care too much
    And my scars remind me that the past is real
    I tear my heart open just to feel

    I'm Drunk and I'm feeling down
    And I just wanna be alone
    I'm pissed 'cause you came around
    Why don't you just go home?
    'Cause I channeled all your pain
    And I can't help you fix yourself
    You're making me insane
    All I can say is...

    [Chorus:]
    I tear my heart open, I sew myself shut
    And my weakness is that I care too much
    And our scars remind us that the past is real
    I tear my heart open just to feel

    I tried to help you once
    Against my own advice
    I saw you going down
    But you never realized
    That you're drowning in the water
    So I offered you my hand
    Compassion's in my nature
    Tonight is our last stand

    [Chorus]

    I'm drunk and I'm feeling down
    And I just wanna be alone
    You shoulda' never come around
    Why don't you just go home?
    'Cause you're drowning in the water
    And I tried to grab your hand
    I left my heart open
    But you didn't understand
    But you didn't understand

    Go fix yourself

    I can't help you fix yourself
    But at least I can say I tried
    I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
    I can't help you fix yourself
    But at least I can say I tried
    I'm sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

    [Chorus x2]

    Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

    So, so you think you can tell
    Heaven from Hell,
    Blue skies from pain.
    Can you tell a green field
    From a cold steel rail?
    A smile from a veil?
    Do you think you can tell?

    Did they get you to trade
    Your heroes for ghosts?
    Hot ashes for trees?
    Hot air for a cool breeze?
    Cold comfort for change?
    And did you exchange
    A walk on part in a war
    For a lead role in a cage?

    How I wish, how I wish you were here.
    We're just two lost souls
    Swimming in a fish bowl,
    Year after year,
    Running over the same old ground.
    What have we found?
    The same old fears.
    Wish you were here.

    Eye of the Hurricane (David Wilcox)

    The tank is full, the switch is on
    The night is warm, the cops are gone
    The rocket-bike is all her own
    It's called a Hurricane

    She told me once it's quite a ride
    It's shaped so there's this place inside
    Where if you're moving, you can hide
    Safe within the rain

    {Refrain}
    She wants to run away
    But there's no where that she can go
    Nowhere the pain won't come again
    But she can hide
    Hide in the pouring rain
    She rides the eye of a Hurricane

    Tell the truth, explain to me
    How you got this need for speed
    She laughed and said
    "It might just be the next best thing to love"

    Hope is gone, and she confessed
    That when you lay your dream to rest
    You can get what's second best
    But it's hard to get enough

    {Refrain}

    We saw her ride, so fast last night
    Racing by in a flash of light

    Riding quick the street was dark
    The shining truck she thought was parked
    It blocked her path, stopped her heart
    But not the Hurricane

    She saw her chance to slip the trap
    There was just the room to pass in back
    But then it moved, closed the gap
    She never felt the pain

    (Refrain)

    Comfortably Numb -- Pink Floyd

    Hello.
    Is there anybody in there?
    Just nod if you can hear me.
    Is there anyone home?

    Come on, now.
    I hear youíre feeling down.
    Well I can ease your pain,
    Get you on your feet again.

    Relax.
    I need some information first.
    Just the basic facts:
    Can you show me where it hurts?

    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant shipís smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
    When I was a child I had a fever.
    My hands felt just like two balloons.
    Now I got that feeling once again.
    I canít explain, you would not understand.
    This is not how I am.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    Ok.
    Just a little pinprick. [ping]
    Thereíll be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
    But you may feel a little sick.

    Can you stand up?
    I do believe itís working. good.
    Thatíll keep you going for the show.
    Come on itís time to go.

    There is no pain, you are receding.
    A distant shipís smoke on the horizon.
    You are only coming through in waves.
    Your lips move but I canít hear what youíre sayiní.
    When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone.
    I cannot put my finger on it now.
    The child is grown, the dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb.

    My kids, who are little and should be in bed, are listening to the B-52s "Deadbeat Club." They're choreographing a dance to it.

    I can't impose bedtime in the middle of that! Luckily their dad is less romantic. All's quiet now.

    I'm proud to be part of Dawno's Invisible Circle.
    ... When he left for Iraq I reminded him that there was this huge invisible circle of people, some I don't even really know, that see his picture and send their good thoughts, prayers and support his way. He was very moved by it and I know it's one of the things he relies on when he's down or afraid. ~Dawno
    At least pay attention. We owe it to our troops.

    Actually, I don't own a Pink Floyd album at all (yet). I just tend to have a few songs on repeat that mean something to me at the time. These two happen to be among them.

    Oh! You must buy one. Pink Floyd is some very powerful music. It sucks ya right in. I was never much of a Pink Floyd fan until I started dating this guy years ago. He turned me on to them and I've loved Pink Floyd ever since. I would suggest The Wall or Dark Side of the Moon. There are so many great ones. But for starters, those two are excellent!

    This one's for you, WVWriterGirl! Enjoy!

    People Are Strange - The Doors

    People are strange when you're a stranger
    Faces look ugly when you're alone
    Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
    Streets are uneven when you're down
    When you're strange
    Faces come out of the rain
    When you're strange
    No one remembers your name
    When you're strange X3
    People are strange when you're a stranger
    Faces look ugly when you're alone
    Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
    Streets are uneven when you're down
    When you're strange
    Faces come out of the rain
    When you're strange
    No one remembers your name
    When you're strange X3
    When you're strange
    Faces come out of the rain
    When you're strange
    No one remembers your name
    When you're strange X3
