music notes

Jam Time :D


HOMEPage 2

There is a thing me and my girlfriend do where we send eachother songs we think the other would like. A lot of the songs I listen to on repeat are from bands she introduced me to. She has an amazing taste in music so I will spread the propaganda she has hit me with.

One of the bands she introduced me to is The Crane Wives. They have a lot of very good songs so it was very difficult to pick just one to include here.

How To Rest

The Crane Wives

Go on stack the cinder blocks in a cold sweat
Build yourself a citadel amid the foothills of regret
And though you've convinced yourself, you're safe and sound within
The thing you fear the most never need get in

'Cause you'll miss the sun, the warmth of another's embrace
You'll need room to run and something to chase
And that thing you fear will coax you out of that unholy place
As all you've ever wanted is an escape

Those of us who vow never to love again, to love again
Are making liars out of honest men
It's not something that you put to bed, hang your head and just forget
No, love don't know how to rest
No, love don't know how to rest

Darling, when you've tired, you will see
There is no safe place, no sanctuary
It's all just child's play, a game of hide and seek
Don't make it harder than it has to be

Those of us who vow never to love again, to love again
Are making liars out of honest men
It's not something that you put to bed, hang your head and just forget
No, love don't know how to rest
No, love don't know how to rest

Here's the truest thing I've ever known
The heart is just a muscle with a rhythm all its own
It doesn't stop when you decide not to move on
The heart knows nothing of your love or of your loss

So life just keeps on ticking by
Compelled by instinct to survive
And love's the only thing worth being alive for
And love's the only worth being alive for

Those of us who vow never to love again, to love again
Are making liars out of honest men
It's not something that you put to bed, hang your head and just forget
No, love don't know how to rest
No, love don't know how to rest
It's okay, it's okay


Honorable Mentions

Narrowing down just one artist was difficult enough as is, so I will also include some others that my girlfriend showed me.

And while we're here, I may as well include some that I have showed my girlfriend.
