This song is gorgeous. I'd forgotten I loved it.

Volcano by Damien Rice

Don't hold yourself like that
You'll hurt your knees
I kissed your mouth and back
But that's all I need
Don't build your world around volcanoes melt you down

What I am to you is not real
What I am to you you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for the sea

Don't throw yourself like that
In front of me
I kissed your mouth your back
Is that all you need?
Don't drag my love around volcanoes melt me down

What I am to you is not real
What I am to you you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for what I give to you
Is just what i'm going through
This is nothing new
No no just another phase of finding what I really need
Is what makes me bleed
And like a new disease she's still too young to treat
Volcanoes melt me down
She's still too young
I kissed your mouth
You do not need me

In other news, I'm moving to Sweden. I'm missing it now like I have never missed a place before.

Life, she goes on.

I sent my application and portfolio to Arizona. It's out of my hands, now.

Saw "Children of Men" and am consequently deeply unsettled in ways I can't really express yet.

And now I give you some tunes for the new year:

Poor Little Rich Boy -- Regina Spektor
"You're so young, you're so god damn young..."

Southtown Girls -- The Hold Steady
"Southtown girls won't blow you away, but you know that they'll stay."

Salute my Shorts! -- Rilo Kiley
"we've been waiting all year
for someone to just say
everyone fucks up it's going to be ok"

After the Bombs -- The Decemberists
"After the rockets
After the rockets come

Then we’ll go dancing
Won’t we go dancing
Yes, we’ll go dancing
‘Til it all starts over again"

Have some music. These are songs that are good pick-me-ups.

Let the River Run by Carly Simon From the Working Girl soundtrack. The images in this just make me hopeful. Plus, Carly's my patron goddess of music.

Checking My Pulse by Alix Olson [ profile] dien told me about Alix and. Wow. She's amazing and is my patron goddess of things-wot-I-want-to-write-like. =D

Fill it up Again by the Indigo Girls Makes me think of [ profile] danachan and Mal Reynolds from Firefly. Don't ask me why. Anyhow, Indigo Girls! This song... I don't know. It just has so much resolve, it makes me feel more confident.

I'm Still Here by Johnny Rzeznik From the Treasure Planet soundtrack, a vastly underrated movie that I love. Anyway, this song is pretty neat for your standard pop song. It may be damaged, let me know if it doesn't play correctly. Damn anti-theft protection.

Only for Now by the cast of Avenue Q I really want to see this play. It's like the muppets meet Rent, or so I'm told. This song is... useful, really. Good to remember.

Ride a Shooting Star by The Pillows I'm not sure what the words to this song are, but I like to think they're hopeful. Reminds me of FLCL and is just plain old crazy japanese-pop-music crack.
