rlly proud of this one :) lyrics: i couldn't stand in a room with you and not think about that night i had to cross the street if we were walking on the same side it just hurt too much too many reminders that i messed things up but now we're okay again i had to block you on instagram so i wouldn't feel impatient i had to stop myself at least once a day from thinking how her haircut makes us look the same and it hurt a bunch too many reminders that i messed things up but now we're okay again i've been taking my time not tryna get high with all the wrong people we've been growing apart but i guess that's what happens to some people and i know we're not friends but i'll always be here if you need people i'm just glad that we're okay again we had a party at our place and you showed up with your best friends it wasn't weird it wasn't awkward it was just like seeing an old friend after 4 whole months i don't remember ever seeing you so happy i guess we knew it wasn't meant to be us it's been 4 whole months i don't remember ever being this happy i guess we knew it wasn't meant to be us i've been taking my time not tryna get high with all the wrong people we've been growing apart but i guess that's what happens to some people and i know we're not friends but i'll always be here if you need people i'm just glad that we're okay again
Very honored to have one of the greatest - CC:DISCO! with a very personal selection for your Tuesday blues. Here's what the tireless selector and DJ has to say about it: "The following is a mix to enjoy while alone, weather its on the bus, plane, sitting in a park, at the beach or when you want to nap... ESP when you want to NAP!!! It takes from the 50s,60s'70s''80's eras, a time when lyrics told you stories and guitars made you feel warm and fuzzy. This isn't a mix of obscure tracks you've never heard to prove my 'diggin clout' but a mix to just sit back and enjoy, Loves songs that relax you and make you drift way and at some points you can even sing along. It also features a few tracks my mum and dad would sit and play us on the farm (the Everly brothers) and a movie that our family was obsessed with it. (La bamba). These particular tracks take me to a time when I fell in love with the stories in songs and it was the start of my obsession for music you enjoy! NFTCM (not for the chins mix)" Peace!
Produced by Fifty Grand Behind these walls A golden pool Where water falls And passes through They got it wrong! Right all along They got it wrong! Right all along And the way that you know Is that you'll never go Which way the wind goes It's better unknown In the time that you left These grown-over steps At the door of your mind If you ask me to fall I will

Warping Youth EP out June 26th Stream/Download: http://lnk.to/warpingyouth Tour Dates/Social Media/Merch: https://fengsuave.com LYRICS: Surely when we die we’ll go someplace But what about the dolphins? Does anyone there hear and understand cetacean prayers? I mean if not that’s a bummer ‘Cause I’m just toking, dozing No emotions And no garden hosing It’s nothing much thought-provoking Just a hollow moment A couple more of those and I’ll be done Smoking Na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na We were never quite at home in Paradise So if it’s any consolation This CGI some folks are working on is just unbelievable So turn your televisions on again ‘Cause you wouldn’t want to miss a thing Of these wonderful times that we’re living in I’m just toking, dozing No emotions And no garden hosing It’s nothing much thought-provoking It’s just a hollow moment A couple more of those and I’ll be done Smoking Na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na Na-na-na-na-na
Ghazal is a poetic form with rhyming couplets and a refrain, each line sharing the same meter. All couplets are thematically and emotionally autonomous. Ghazal in music is often mistakenly considered as a music genre and associated with a typical tabla/harmonium music arrangement but any poetry can be sung in any tune without a limitation of music arrangement. Here, Ali Aftab Saeed is performing a 'do ghazla', written by Master Altaf. Do ghazla is an amalgamation of two ghazals on the same meter. Punjabis have a way to minuscule their troubles by poking fun and ridiculing themselves, this adds up to their cultural uniqueness. This song is an ode to a wife who left her house after an argument with her husband. The simple yet graceful nine stanzas offer a glimpse of a home where the man has been left alone. The kitchen is overflowing with utensils, her slippers are still lying outside, as if she has stepped out for a moment. In typical Punajbi style, social commentary is interspersed with tongue in cheek descriptions of the man's grief for his departed partner. He cannot meet anyone because the city is dark due to load shedding. He compares her tears to Rawalpindi's infamous Naala Lai. He observes that Ravi doesn't have a drop of water in it, yet Gulshan Ravi is drowning. In the end, he expresses simple faith that things will turn out all right, asking her to come back because it's a beautiful evening.

I wrote this song for the Nebraska Furniture Mart Anthem contest. The task was to write a song about home and how home makes you feel. When thinking about this, a lot of childhood memories popped into my head as well as just happy and memorable times I've had with my family and friends. I called the song Seasons because it captures the seasons throughout my life. I hope you enjoy it, let me know what you think! Feel free to like and share with your friends! You can follow me @sablebreeze on all social media.
take a lizard, convince him that he's a turtle with a shell so that when he figures it out it all comes crashing down take a kid, convince them that you think that they're the best so that when they find out that they're just as good as the rest they're gonna feel alone it's gonna break the world in two it's gonna be so hard when you see it's just not working out for you ou, ou take a migratory bird tell her she don't gotta leave so that when the winter winds come along she'll freeze and take a sunshine teen and tell them that you love them then use them for everything they're worth and it all comes crashing down again and it all will fall apart and i, i know that i just gotta hold on to my heart but i just can't start. ou, ou // thank you. :-)
“Nobody Loves You Like Me” written by Jonathan Coulton and performed/covered by Brian Travis. I made a music video for this too...check it out here: https://youtu.be/vCmA8BdUKFU I absolutely fell in love with this song. Something about the feel of it, the dark sentiment, the lovely wordplay and the soaring B section that is seemingly perfect for harmonies. Jonathan Coulton in a goddamn genius songwriter. The last stanza of this song is beyond beautiful: Air in my lungs, a cough and a wheeze holes in the bellows and blood on the keys you move along, there’s nothing to see nobody loves you like me… Holy hell, how I wish I had written those lines. Lay down your quill Mr. Coulton and give the rest of us mere mortals a chance… I simple had to cover it as it had been running rampant in my brian for months after hearing it for the first time. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed covering it. I played the acoustic guitar, the keyboard and sang a whole bunch of layered harmonies. I tracked the vocals and guitar live and added all the rest after. It was a fun Saturday in my home studio. More to come so please hit the subscribe button. After all these years of doing this I’m still trying to grow my numbers. If you dig this tune, and know someone who may also enjoy it, feel free to share it.

first take played with a pick on a Seagull S-6 Long years ago I fell in love With a lady proud and fair So passionate were she and I We made fire in the air I loved her more than life itself She loved me just the same And it broke my heart To think we'd part if she ended the affair But I was brutal, I was ignorant I was cruel I was brash I never gave a damn about The beauty that I smashed No sadist I, I took delight In making my Love cry Now I'd pray for a single kiss from her To be lashed and crucified And now I feel this lady fair Can never more be mine Long gone are night in my lonely bed All suffering and crying And though I fear that through this life She'll only call me friend Til I'm dead and buried in my grave My Love will never end Til I'm in bed and buried in my grave My Love will never end
This is just an instrumental of my song Walk Away. I am too poor of a singer to do it justice - and my guitar playing leaves a lot to be desired - but I think it's a pretty cool song. I had a little screw up on the last chorus - but you'll get the idea :) Here are the lyrics and Chords Can’t Walk Away From You By Jim Kenyon Verse 1 [Am]You said that your leaving, for something new I never saw it coming, but I [Em]know it’s true It’s like when a [Am]storm becomes a [D7]hurricane And then it [Em]stops, and you wonder if it's [Am]coming again , Verse 2 . This love seems to be a clever masquerade a well thought out lonely [Em]heart’s club charade seen the [Am]good times and bad, the[D7] best and worst like [Em]swimming in the ocean while you’re [Am]dying from thirst , Chorus , [D7]Thunder’s rolling and the rain’s coming down and the [Am] house that built me is crumbling down oh I [D7]ain’t scared of nothing , won't run away But I [B7] never thought I’d lose you un [D7]til to[Am]day yea I’ve [D7]walked away from trouble in the past and I’ve [Am] walked away from trouble just to make this last oh, I’ve [D7] walked away from trouble , you know that it’s true Yea, I've [B7]walked away from trouble, but I [C7] can’t walk a[B7]way from [Am]you . Verse 3 . It’s hard for me to tell now who you really are You treated me like wet change [Em] on a bar seems that [Am]every day leaves me [D7]crying in vain since you [Em] said I hold you back like a [Am] ball and chain . Verse 4 . Even when I'm with you , seems I'm all alone Your kisses are cold , and your [Em]heart is stone your poisoned [Am]wordsnow haunt my [D7]every dream and now I'm [Em] seeing things never were [Am]what they seemed . Chorus [D7]Thunder’s rolling and the rain’s coming down and the [Am] house that built me is crumbling down oh I [D7]ain’t scared of nothing , won't run away But I [B7] never thought I’d lose you un [D7]til to[Am]day yea I’ve [D7]walked away from trouble in the past and I’ve [Am] walked away from trouble just to make this last oh, I’ve [D7] walked away from trouble , you know that it’s true Yea, I've [B7]walked away from trouble, but I [C7] can’t walk a[B7]way from [Am]you I've [B7]walked away from trouble, but I [C7] can’t walk a[B7]way from [Am]you [B7]walked away from trouble, but I [C7] can’t walk a[B7]way from [Am]you yea, I've [B7]walked away from trouble, but I [C7] can’t walk a[B7]way from [Am]you . slow . yea, I've [B7]walked away from trouble, but I [C7] can’t walk a[B7]way from [Am]you

You are Unlimited More about the song: Stay true to your path, you will thank yourself tomorrow!
LYRICS by Rachelle Wells. MUSIC by Eric Agner. You said, I wasn’t trying hard enough You said, I wasn’t kind enough You never let me do things my way I was given no choice but to obey You tried to steal away my soul Remake me in your own mold You thought you’d won the fight You underestimated my light But look at us now Look who’s on the ground… I’m doing this better than, Better than you Bet you wish you had The friends, friends I do When I look outside I got a prettier view ‘Cause I’m doing this better than, better than, Better than you You used to hold all the cards Told me, I wouldn’t get far Put me in a gilded cage All the while, I built up rage You’re nothing more than a thief You’re nothing more than a liar You put a target on my back And you almost took me out But look at us now Look who’s on the ground… I’m doing this better than, Better than you Bet you wish you had The friends, friends I do When I look outside I got a prettier view ‘Cause I’m doing this better than, better than, Better than you My anger gives me strength ‘Cause I finally found the way Oh, it’s slipping away And the sun’s out today Oh, it’s slipping away And the sun's out today I’m doing this better than, Better than you Bet you wish you had The friends, friends I do When I look outside I got a prettier view ‘Cause I’m doing this better than, better than, Better than you Doing this better, better, better Doing this better, better, better Than you...

I wrote most of this a few years ago, but finished it in a burst of inspiration last night! Here it is!! Lyrics: I left her face on the fireplace, underneath the back porch, and inside my pillow case. I left her there, I left her everywhere Cuz I didn't leave her. I kept her words on the answering machine, in the magnets on the fridge, in the braille on the ceiling. I kept her there, I kept her everywhere Cuz I couldn't keep her. And the day you told you I'd never see your face again still rips me up inside. And the way you left me for dead, you left me blue with nothing else to do but hide- So I'll hide. I saw her face in my dreams last night. We were out on the pier, in the salt and the sunlight. I saw her there, I see her everywhere Cuz I'm not seein' her. She took my hand, she took my heart, my hopes and dreams, and tore them apart. She took me then, and left me here... But I didn't leave her.
