Good night… again… :)

I’m feeling hella nostalgic tonight ♥

Played 10 times

Album: The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me

Artist: Brand New

Song: Sowing Season (Yeah)

So I’m choosing this song for a very dumb reason, but I don’t care! It reminds me of Guitar Hero. That simple. I think I got a perfect score on it even though this game had no acheivement for perfecting a song. Lame! Haha, anyway, it’s still a really good song!!



Was losing all my friends
Was losing them to drinking and to driving
Was losing all my friends, but I got them back

I am on the mend
At least now I can say that I am trying
And I hope you will forget things I still lack


Is it in you now?
To bear to hear the truth that you have spoken
Twisted up by knaves
To make a trap for fools

Is it in you now?
To watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop and build them up with worn out tools


Nothing gets so bad
A whisper from your father couldn’t fix it
Your whispers like a bridge, he’s a river span

Take all that you have
And turn it into something you would miss if
Somebody threw that brick
And shattered all your plans


Time to get the seeds into the cold ground
It takes a while to grow anything
Before it’s coming to an end, yeah

Before you put my body in the cold ground
Take some time to warm it with your hands
Before it’s coming to an end, yeah

It’s coming to an end

Do you miss the blend
Of colours she left in your black and white field
Do you feel condemned just being there?

I am not your friend
I am just a man who knows how to feel
I’m not your friend
I’m not your lover,
I’m not your family.


Time to get the seeds into the cold ground
It takes a while to grow anything
Before it’s coming to an end, yeah

Album: Deja Entendu

Artist: Brand New

Song: The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot

Ok, I know, everyone and their mom loves this song. But this song has been with me since I was 15 maybe? And it’s always and will forever be one of my favorite songs of all time. It’s tattoo worthy and will probably be one of my future tattoos so it really can be with me forever. Just let the song speak for itself…



If it makes you less sad
I will die by your hand
I hope you find out what you want
I already know what I am
And if it makes you less sad
We’ll start talking again
And you can tell me how vile
I already know that I am

I’ll grow old
And start acting my age
I’ll be a brand new day
In a life that you hate
A crown of gold
A heart that’s harder than stone
And it hurts a whole lot
But it’s missed when it’s gone

Call me a safe bet
I’m betting I’m not
I’m glad you that can forgive
Only hoping as time goes
You can forget

If it makes you less sad
I’ll move out of the state
You can keep to yourself
I’ll keep out of your way
And if it makes you less sad
I’ll take your pictures all down
Every picture you paint
I will paint myself out
It’s as cold as a tomb
And it’s dark in your room
When I sneak to your bed
To pour salt in your wounds
So call it quits
Or get a grip
Say you wanted a solution
You just wanted to be missed

Call me a safe bet
I’m betting I’m not
I’m glad that you can forgive
I’m only hoping as time goes
You can forget
So you can forget
You can forget

You are calm and reposed
Let your beauty unfold
Pale white like the skin
Stretched over your bones
Spring keeps you ever close
You are second hand smoke
You are so fragile and thin
Standing trial for your sins
Holding onto yourself the best you can
You are the smell before the rain
You are the blood in my veins

Call me a safe bet
I’m betting I’m not
I’m glad that you can forgive
I’m only hoping as time goes
You can forget

Song: Bed

I haven’t given my full attention to this album. I know I’ve heard all the songs on this album, but I don’t know them very well. So, now that I’m at this album, I have to go with the song that sticks out in my head the most. So here it is =)



My head is lead and I don’t want to ever go to bed
Your hair is on fire
You snuff the blaze turn to vapor and you float away
We got into a bad fight
Laid her on the bed…

My eyes are lungs, I’m a prophet and I speak in tongues
I know how you’ll die
Your sister groans, a usurper to the holy throne
To me she’s just a dead spy

Laid her on the bed…
Lie to all your friends…

I don’t know what you feel like
Ambushed on the road, stole your gold, you’re a rose and you’re laughing now
Everything that you own starts to pile up
Like bones make the walls of your prison

Laid her on the bed…
I don’t want to ever go to bed

Stay out for the fight
The champ goes down like a clown in the second round
I wish we had a bed we could have brought
Lie to all your friends…

This story’s old
But it goes on and on
Until we dissapear
Calm me and let me taste the
Salt you breathed
While you were underneath
I am the one the who haunts your
Dreams of mountains
Sunk below the sea
I spoke the words but never
Gave a thought to what they all could mean
I know that this is what you want
A funeral keeps both of us apart
You know that you are not alone
I need you like water in my lungs

Day 05: A song that reminds you of someone

I’ve been thinking bout this one for the last couple days ‘cause I knew it was coming up. So here it goes.

Brand New - “Soco Amaretto Lime” from the Your Favorite Weapon album reminds me of one of my best friends, Ms. Sarah Marquez.

Basically any Brand New song from Your Favorite Weapon and Deja Entendu remind me of her. We like to sing it to eachother a lot. We had lots of good times to both of those albums. Lots of adventures =) Basically the only good memories I had from high school happened to these songs and some others with that lovely lady. Love you Sarah!

Songs that got me through my day…

So today sucked. A lot of days suck lately. But music is always there for me. So today I decided to shuffle all of the 802 songs on my iPhone and see if it would make me feel better. And it did because music never lets me down. I realized some songs were hitting a chord with me more than others, whether or not they were good, bad, happy, or sad. Here are those songs. Love them. Embrace them. And if you don’t, find your own that make your soul a little warmer.

Paramore - Miracle

Death Cab for Cutie - Brothers on a Hotel Bed

Copeland - Chin Up

NeverShoutNever - What is Love?

Paper Route - Carousel

A Day to Remember - If It Means a Lot to You

NeverShoutNever - Love is Our Weapon

Cash Cash - Concerta

Brand New - Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t
