"if you're reading this, i'm likely dead" "congrats, congrats," words through my paper head; i get your back, blood on the kitchen floor; matter-of-fact, white knuckles on my door

  • permanent sigh | wintersleep

i'm damned if i do and i'm damned if i don't, so here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my road; and i'm ready to suffer and i'm ready to hope, it's a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat

  • shake it out | florence + the machine

fingers on the teeth, a telephone call, i just wanna hear you say nothin' at all

  • surrender | wintersleep

i can only recognize my face when you look at me

  • someone, somewhere | wintesrleep

i loved you before i ever knew what the teeth would feel like, what the bite would do

  • surrender | wintersleep

lately i'm feeling like a big bang 'cause i been making something outta nothing

  • infinitesimal | mother mother

oh my darling, you never told me; if i come home bloody, will you still want me? do you still want me?

  • saving song | wintersleep

pull out your heart to make the being alone easy; you break the bridle to make losing control easy; crushed what you're holding so you can say letting go is easy; burn all your things to make the fight to forget easy

  • easy | son lux

pull the keys out and left the car there; walked through days, and nights, and years

  • the lighthouse | wintersleep

tell the devil i said "hey" when you get back to where you're from

  • grenade | bruno mars

the harlot and the priest, the prophet and the thief, up from their knees; in all their open mouths i see the lantern tongues light up at once

  • ransom | son lux

the sun is in the east, rising for the beasts and the beauties; i wish that i could tear it down, plant it in the ground to warm your face

  • last of days | a fine frenzy

throw your soul through every open door, count your blessings to find what you look for, turn my sorrow into treasured gold, you'll pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

  • rolling in the deep | adele

we'll sit for days and talk about things important to us like, whatever; we'll defuse bombs, walk marathons, and take on whatever together

  • a.m. 180 | grandaddy

what wish will ransom me, unbury violently, all innocents? lanterns illumine me, burning the memory, rise innocent; what rage will usher me, swallow the enemy, buy innocence? lanterns illumine me, incense from memory, rise innocent

  • ransom | son lux

when the cold of winter comes, starless night will cover day; in the veiling of the sun, we will walk in bitter rain; but in dreams, i can hear your name, and in dreams we will meet again; when the seas and mountains fall and we come to end of days, in the dark i hear a call, calling me there, i will go there and back again

  • in dreams | howard shore

when the evening pulls the sun down and the day is almost through, oh, the whole world, it is sleeping, but my world is you

  • bloom | the paper kites

wrap those feathers like a blanket over me, throw my bones into the belly of the deep

  • a long flight | wintersleep

you taught me the courage of stars before you left, how light carries on endlessly, even after death; with shortness of breath you explained the infinite, how rare and beautiful it is to even exist

  • saturn | sleeping at last

you were a forest fire burning effervescent through the night, i was a drunk empire looking for a light
