lingering in another girl's paradise

another day without wings: an a mix

at the bottom of everything ~ bright eyes

"we must hang up in the belfry where the bats in moonlight laugh,
we must stare into a crystal ball and only see the past,
and into the caverns of tomorrow with just our flashlights and our love,
we must plunge, we must plunge, we must plunge."

antichrist television blues ~ arcade fire

"now I'm overcome,
by the light of day,
my lips are near,
but my heart is far away."

anyway i can ~ the ting tings

"i've been good,
i've been bad,
i've been happy,
i've been sad,
i've been greedy,
i've been seedy,
i've been had."

almost sorry ~ scissor sisters

"a rainbow still looks pretty when it bleeds."

"and they're jealous cause you know so much,
they can't quite get a grip;
you're everything they wish they were."

and your bird can sing ~ the beatles

"you tell me that you've got everything you want,
and your bird can sing,
but you don't get me,
you don't get me."

the angels hung around ~ rilo kiley

"i been clubbed and i been snubbed,
by the dogs of l.a.,
and i been burned and i been learned,
in the same city."

the angel’s share ~ ted leo & the pharmacists

"because on and on, the tides are surely come,
as sure enough, they'll leave again as one,
as you and i, we will or won't be here."

advice for young mother’s to be ~ the veils

"so here it is your heart is out in the cold."

ask ~ the smiths

"shyness is nice and,
shyness can stop you,
from doing all the things in life,
you'd like to."

all at once ~ pete yorn

"and when the darkness comes, i lie awake,
playing lost and found."

angeles ~ elliott smith

"i could make you satisfied in everything you do,
all your 'secret wishes' could right now be coming true,
and be forever,
with my poison arms around you."

all the way to new york city ~ rosie thomas

"you could write for picture shows,
and i could get a job waiting tables,
at a restaurant where famous people like to go;
we could buy old overcoats and walk through the snow,
all the way around central park,
our cheeks as pink as wild roses."

all my days ~ alexi murdoch

"and i’ve been trying to find,
what’s been in my mind,
as the days keep turning into night."

another girl’s paradise ~ tori amos

"when it all is said,
said and done,
who can love you,
and still be standing"

amy hit the atmosphere ~ counting crows

"we've waited so long,
for someone to take us back home."

all i need
~ mat kearney

"and if all we've got,
is what no one can break,
i know i love you,
if that's all we can take."

angel mine
~ cowboy junkies

"i search all the time on the ground,
for our shadows cast side by side;
just to remind me that i haven't gone crazy,
that you exist and are mine."

albion ~ peter doherty

"down in albion,
they're black and blue,
but we don't talk about that."
"i'm empty,
and aching,
and i don't know why."
