Foo Fighters – The Sky Is A Neighborhood

Standard

The sky is a neighborhood
So keep it down
The heart is a storybook
A star burned out
The sky is a neighborhood
Don’t make a sound
Lights coming up ahead
Don’t look now

The sky is a neighborhood
The sky is a neighborhood
Don’t look now

Oh my dear
Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep some how
Banging on the ceiling
Banging on the ceiling
Keep it down

Oh my dear
Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep some how
Banging on the ceiling
Banging on the ceiling
Keep it down

My mind is a battlefield
All hope is gone
Trouble to the right and left
Whose side you’re on
Thoughts like a minefield
I’m a ticking bomb
Maybe you should watch your step
Don’t get lost

The sky is a neighborhood
The sky is a neighborhood
Don’t get lost

Oh my dear
Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep some how
Banging on the ceiling
Banging on the ceiling
Keep it down

Oh my dear
Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep some how
Banging on the ceiling
Banging on the ceiling
Keep it down

The sky is a neighborhood
Heart is a storybook
The star burned out
Something coming up ahead
Don’t look now

Oh my dear
Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep some how
Banging on the ceiling
Banging on the ceiling
Keep it down

Oh my dear
Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep some how
Banging on the ceiling
Banging on the ceiling
Keep it down

The sky is a neighborhood

The Monkees – Me & Magdalena

Standard

I know I already did a post about this song but I really love it and wanted to add lyrics and a note that Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie wrote about writing it.

‘Before The Beatles, before The Velvet Underground and before punk and/or indie rock, The Monkees were the first band I truly loved. Their albums were always on in our home when I was a kid (especially Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.), and I learned to sing alongside them. I spent countless hours in front of the TV in the ’80s watching Monkees reruns wishing I could climb through the screen and be in the show with them. They made being in a band seem so fun — and goddammit, it should be! For these reasons and a million others, I can say with absolutely zero hyperbole that contributing “Me & Magdalena” to this album has been the greatest honor of my career.’

Me and Magdalena
We’re driving south through Monterey
As the sun is slowly sinking
Into a distant ocean wave

And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as I much as I do and this light she’s under

Tell me Magdalena
What do you see in the depths of your mind
Do you see your long lost father
Does he hold you with the hands you remember as a child

But know everything lost will be recovered
When you drift into the arms of the undiscovered

And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as I much as I do and this light she’s under

Me and Magdalena
Always leaving early and sleeping late
Secluded in the canyon
Lost within a turn of fate

But know everything lost will be recovered
When you drift into the arms of the undiscovered

And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as I much as I do and this light she’s under

Foo Fighters – The Neverending Sigh

Standard

The Neverending Sigh

Woe is me
The end is near
Thought you’d never leave

Heart and teeth
Just a taste
Bittersweet
One last stain to get beneath the skin
Beneath the skin

The wish is drawn inside
The neverending sigh
No one lets everyone in
No one lets everyone in
My exit no exit
No one lets everyone in

Me and you
Draw the line
Now it’s time to move
Face to face
Damn the look
Blessed be
Heaven what’s come over me

The wish is drawn inside
The neverending sigh
No one lets everyone in
No one lets everyone in
My exit no exit
Go on let everyone in
No one lets everyone in

No one lets everyone in
No one lets everyone in
My exit no exit
Go on let everyone in
No one lets everyone in

Foo Fighters – Iron Rooster

Standard

Iron Rooster

Have you ever been dumb enough
To do what you wanted to do
Without good reason coming over you
Have you ever been young enough
To feel what you wanted to feel
Take back those years for something real

I’m an iron rooster
Cold and still
Irregular sculpture
Held against my will

Have you ever been drunk enough
To say what you wanted to say
Without the words getting in the way
Have you ever been in love enough
To be what you wanted to be
I won’t mind you if you won’t mind me

I’m an iron rooster
Cold and still
Irregular sculpture
Held against my will

Can you believe we’re older
I won’t believe it’s over now
Do you remember being children
Do you remember it now

I’m an iron rooster
Cold and still
Irregular sculpture
An iron rooster
Cold and still
Irregular sculpture
An iron rooster
An iron rooster
An iron rooster
Held against my will

Foo Fighters – Savior Breath

Standard

Savior Breath

Breathe oh breathe now
Smother me
Clever me I’m onto you
My oh my now
Testify
Guilted by my claws on you ?
Where you been
How far’d you get
I got this sin I saved for you
I don’t need your remedy
I wanna be ?
Sick of you ?

Sweetest torture at least when you’re alive ?
Crimson burns will ?
Mark my words so

Savior breath
Savior breath
Savior breath ’cause it’s mine
Savior breath
Savior breath
Savior breath ’cause it’s mine

Open wide now
Crucify
Wanna ride my lungs on you ?
Love is sweet oh
Jealousy is
Gonna be the death of you

Bang bang bang
Ain’t no ?
Bang bang bang
Ain’t no ?
Sweetest torture at least when you’re alive ?

Crimson burns will ?
Mark my words so

Savior breath
Savior breath
Savior breath ’cause it’s mine
Savior breath
Savior breath
Savior breath ’cause it’s mine

Bang bang bang
Ain’t no ?
Bang bang bang
Ain’t no ?
Sweetest torture
Now mark my words and

Savior breath
Savior breath
Savior breath ’cause it’s mine
Savior breath
Savior breath
Savior breath ’cause it’s mine
Savior breath
Savior breath
Savior breath ’cause it’s mine

*Wow, Dave sings fast on this and enunciation has never been key in punk / metal so some of these lyrics have flummoxed me.

Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson Relator follow up

Standard

This is a follow-up to the short mention I did of Relator from Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson. I love the song. I love Scarlett’s voice in it.

I was very disappointed in the online lyric sites and their attempts at getting the lyrics for this song. Yes, they’re sort of twangy and a little blurred together but really, it isn’t rocket science to get a decent idea of the correct lyrics. Enjoy. (And if I’ve made a mistake, please, let me know.)

When I met you
I didn’t know what to do
I was tired, I was hungry, I’d fight
Now I’m away
I write home every day
And I see you on the TV at night

You can see there’s lots for us to talk about
You can leave whenever you want out
Whoa
You don’t relate to me, no girl
You don’t respect me, no girl
No girl, yeah

When I met you I didn’t know what to do
But I noticed that I didn’t really feel
Now you’re away
You write home every day
I don’t beg I don’t borrow or steal

You don’t think there’s lots for us to talk about
You can leave whenever you want out
You want out
You don’t relate to me, no girl
You don’t respect me, no girl
You don’t relate to me, no girl
(You can leave whenever you want)
You don’t repect me, no girl
You don’t relate to me, no girl
(You can leave whenever you want)
You don’t respect me, no girl
No girl, yeah

Death Cab For Cutie – Meet Me On The Equinox

Standard

I’ve been a fan of Death Cab since their first album. I’ve been a fan of this song from the first time I’ve heard it. I love New Moon. I love the soundtrack. So many of the songs are perfectly suited for the scenes in which they occur. Of course, this is ending credits music but it still fits the vibe of the story.

Meet me on the equinox
Meet me halfway
When the sun is perched at its highest peak
In the middle of the day
Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
And as we walk in the dimming light
Oh darling understand

That everything everything ends
That everything everything ends

Meet me on your best behavior
Meet me at your worst
For there will be no stone unturned
Or bubble left to burst

Let me lay beside you darlin’
Let me be your man
And let our bodies intertwine
But always understand

That everything everything ends
That everything everything ends
That everything everything everything ends

A window
And open too
The sun crawls
Across your bedroom
The halo
A waning moon
Your last breaths
Moving through you

As everything everything ends
As everything everything ends
As everything everything everything everything everything everything ends

Meet me on the equinox
Meet me halfway
When the sun is perched at its highest peak
In the middle of the day
Let me give my love to you
Let me take your hand
And as we walk in the dimming light
Oh darlin’ understand

That everything everything ends
