it’s what’s keeping me company during my days and nights right now.
Human | The Killers
‘Are we human, or are we dancers?’
I wonder this all the time.
I Think I’m in Love Again | Kat Dahlia
I think I’m in love again/
(In my head, yeah, you’re in my head)/
I didn’t think it could be true/
Let alone that it would be you/
I find that I am falling in love with myself in a new way.
Such a surprise.
Whispering | Alex Clare
It’s a haunting song for when you’re falling apart.
10,000 Emerald Pools | BORNS
Time is standing still/
You’re the treasure/
Dive down deeper still/
all I need is you
How my husband sees me. Who wouldn’t want to hear that all day?
100 Years | Five For Fighting
This song always reminds me to be glad for where I am and what I have.
And that more beauty is always on its way.
Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down | Fall Out Boy
(Yeah, Fall Out Boy. I’m not apologizing for my music tastes anymore. They’re eclectic. Dig it or quit reading.)
We’re going down, down in an earlier round/
And Sugar, we’re going down swingin’/
I’ll be your number one with a bullet/
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it/
There is nothing that describes me better some days.
I also find the chorus sexy as hell.
My House | Flo Rida
Welcome to my house/
Baby, take control now/
We can’t even slow down/
We don’t need to go out/
A little ass shakin’ heat for the winter.
Wildfire | Michael Murphey
This is, simply, my favorite song from the 70s.
Skeleton Key | Dessa
by now it’s just a simple trick/
not much to see/
you hear the tumblers catch and click/
then turn the key/
but I’ve found work and welcome everywhere I’ve been/
cause everyone’s got someplace they wanna be let in/
don’t waste your worry on me/
I always find what I need/
come and go as I please/
I’ve got my skeleton key/
If you don’t know, Dessa, you need to. She is a poet and weaves the most delicious music and lyrics into magic. Get her album Parts of Speech and sit yourself down for the entire ride.
Sweet & Low | Augustana
This song is helping me feel my way into a new aspect of my self.
See more here.
Sugar, How You Get So Fly | Sugar Fix
She’s something mystical in colored lights/
So far from typical but take my advice/
Before you play with fire do think twice/
And if you get burned don’t be surprised/
Another way to describe me.
Let’s Dance | David Bowie
My husband and I love to dance, and this one let’s us get close and sexy.
If I Lose Myself | One Republic
You can feel the light start to tremble/
Washing what you know out to sea/
You can see your life out of the window tonight/
If I lose myself tonight/
It’ll be by your side/
I’ve lost my footing in the past week, and regained it.
But only with the help of dear friends who know my soul and love me up, no matter what.
