Friday Songs for You 8/31: Vance Joy, “Lay It On Me”

Finally, one song that has become an absolute favorite of mine!

Vance Joy “Lay It On Me”

[Verse 1]
I’m so gone
Anyone could see that I’m wasted
You cut through
And I just wanna know what’s in your head

[Pre-Chorus]
Write it on a piece of paper, honey
Put it in my coat before I go
Hidden in a place you know I’ll find it
Later when I’m sitting all alone

[Chorus]
Let me in
Everything starts at your skin, so new
Your love’s always finding me out
Who am I kidding?
If all my defenses come down, oh baby
Will you lay it all on me now?
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now

[Verse 2]
Snow comes down, everything is new and different
I found you hidden in plain sight, why’d I take so long?

[Pre-Chorus]
Write it on a piece of paper, honey
Put it in my coat before I go

[Chorus]
Let me in
Everything starts at your skin, so new
Your love’s always finding me out
Who am I kidding?
If all my defences come down, oh baby
Will you lay it all on me now?
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now

[Chorus]
Your love’s always finding me out
Who am I kidding?
If all my defences come down, oh baby
Will you lay it all on me now?
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now
Lay it all on me now

Friday Songs for You 8/31: Iron & Wine, “Call It Dreaming”

One of the best songs from last year and one of the best lyrics ever:

“Where the sun isn’t only sinkin’ fast
Every night knows how long it’s supposed to last
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say, before we ease away
For all the love you’ve left behind
You can have mine”

 

Iron & Wine “Call it Dreaming”

[Verse 1]
Say it’s here where our pieces fall in place
Any rain softly kisses us on the face
Any wind means we’re runnin’
We can sleep and see ’em comin’
Where we drift and call it dreamin’
We can weep and call it singing

[Verse 2]
Where we break when our hearts are strong enough
We can bow ’cause our music’s warmer than blood
Where we see enough to follow
We can hear when we are hollow
Where we keep the light we’re given
We can lose and call it livin’

[Chorus 1]
Where the sun isn’t only sinkin’ fast
Every night knows how long it’s supposed to last
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say, before we ease away
For all the love you’ve left behind
You can have mine

[Verse 3]
Say it’s here where our pieces fall in place
We can fear ’cause the feelin’s fine to betray
Where our water isn’t hidden
We can burn and be forgiven
Where our hands hurt from healin’
We can laugh without a reason

[Chorus 2]
‘Cause the sun isn’t only sinkin’ fast
Every moon and our bodies make shining glass
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say, before we ease away
For all the love you’ve left behind
You can have mine

Friday Songs for You 8/31: Dustin Tebbutt, “The Breach”

Now we cross The Breach with Dustin Tebbutt.

Oh, you opened up this vessel
And gather all the quivers
That never got to fly
And a one and only cipher

 

Dustin Tebbutt The Breach

We’re all scared of trenches
And grow weak at knees
I want you to know that
If all you’ve ever wanted was a dream
Then you know that I can’t help you
But did I show you love
In the author on my face
Cause you know you left a hollow
Where your body cut an alcove
Did I show you love
Cause the silence never stayed
It’s a breach I’ll never cover
It’s a breach I’ll never cover
You happened out the back door
Laying bare this need
Oh, you opened up this vessel
And gather all the quivers
That never got to fly
And a one and only cipher
But did I show you love
In the author on my face
Cause you know you left a hollow
Where your body cut an alcove
Did I show you love
Cause the silence never stayed
It’s a breach I’ll never cover
It’s a breach I’ll never cover

Friday Songs for You 8/31: MAGIC GIANT, “Hideaway”

Continuing the ROAD TRIP with MAGIC GIANT’s Hideaway.

“She needs to know that there are tears behind these eyes
We’ve taken off our clothes, let’s take off our disguise”

MAGIC GIANT “Hideaway”

[Verse 1]
Do you, do you, do you
Get sad and lonely?
That’s what, that’s what, that’s what
Somebody said to me
Well I do, I do
She needs to know that there are tears behind these eyes
We’ve taken off our clothes, let’s take off our disguise
It takes two, two

[Pre-Chorus]
Love like nirvana
Fly high like Superman
Don’t mask the monster
Why can’t we just have the truth
Spill all our secrets in the room
Woah, oh, oh

[Chorus]
It’s you, you’re my saving grace
My hideaway and
You, you’re my sweetest taste
My hideaway
It’s you, you’re my saving grace
My hideaway and
You, you’re my sweetest taste
My hideaway

[Verse 2]
We’ve all got something that bumps in the night
It’s always loneliest before the light shines through, through
The city’s burning but we play pretend
It’s hard to feel when your back’s in the [?] out of view, view

[Pre-Chorus]
Love like nirvana
Fly high like Superman
Don’t mask the monster
Why can’t we just have the truth
Spill all our secrets in the room
Woah, oh, oh

[Chorus]
It’s you, you’re my saving grace
My hideaway and
You, you’re my sweetest taste
My hideaway
It’s you, you’re my saving grace
My hideaway and
You, you’re my sweetest taste (oh)
(My hideaway)

[Bridge]
Ay, ay, ay, ay-ay, ayy (my hideaway)
Ay, ay, ay, ay-ay, ayy (my hideaway)

[Chorus]
It’s you, you’re my saving grace
My hideaway and
You, you’re my sweetest taste
My hideaway
It’s you, you’re my saving grace
My hideaway and
You, you’re my sweetest taste
My hideaway
It’s you, you’re my saving grace
(My hideaway and)
You, you’re my sweetest taste
My hideaway

Friday Songs for You 8/31: Dotan, “Home”

After a week off and a road trip some favorites from the trip. To begin with Dotan’s “Home” which was the theme of the Road Trip: going home to New Hampshire, a climb up Mount Monadnock, and well… just good music:.

 

 

Home by Dotan

[Verse 1]
Run past the rivers, run past all the light
Feel it crashing and burning, ’till it all collides
Strike a match, lit the fire, shining up the sky
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again to the sound

[Chorus]
The sound of the wind is whispering in your head
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running ’till we’re there
We’re coming home now, we’re coming home now
The sound of the wind is whispering in your head
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running ’till we’re there
We’re coming home now, we’re coming home now

[Verse 2]
Hear the voices surround us, hear them screaming out
We’ll be crying for mercy, we’ll be crying out loud
Burn the bridges in our town ’till the point when we drown
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again
As it all comes down again to the sound

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
We are coming home, we are coming home

[Chorus]
The sound of the wind is whispering in your head
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running ’till we’re there
We’re coming home now, we’re coming home now
The sound of the wind is whispering in your head
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running ’till we’re there
We’re coming home now, we’re coming home now
The sound of the wind is whispering in your head
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running ’till we’re there
We’re coming home now, we’re coming home now
The sound of the wind is whispering in your head
Can you feel it coming back?
Through the warmth, through the cold, keep running ’till we’re there
We’re coming home now, we’re coming home now
