My Week as a Playlist

If my week were a playlist, it would be:

1. Winter – The Rolling Stones

“It sure been a hard, hard winter
My feet been draggin’ ‘cross the ground
And I hope it’s gonna be a long hot summer
And a lotta love will be burnin’ bright.”

2. Dreams – The Cranberries

“And now I tell you openly
You have my heart so don’t hurt me
You’re what I couldn’t find
A totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You’re everything to me.”

3. Transatlanticism – Death Cab For Cutie

“I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat.
The rhythm of my footsteps crossing flood lands to your door
have been silenced forever more.
The distance is quite simply much too far for me to row
It seems farther than ever before.”

4. Disconnected – Keane

“We walk in circles, the blind leading the blind
I see the landscape change before my eyes
The features I’ve been navigating by
No, nothing looks the way it did before
I don’t know where to look, or what to look for
I feel like I just don’t know you anymore.”

5. Smile Like You Mean It – The Killers

“Looking back at sunsets on the east side
We lost track of the time
Dreams aren’t what they used to be
Some things sat by so carelessly
Smile like you mean it.”

6. Anything But Ordinary – Avril Lavigne

“Is it enough to love?
Is it enough to breathe?
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
Is it enough to die?
Somebody save my life
I’d rather be anything but ordinary please.”

7. Hey Pretty – Poe

“I see a stairway so I follow it down
Into the belly of a whale
Where my secrets echo all around
You know me now but to do better than that
You’ve got to follow me
Boy I’m trying to show you where I’m at.”

8. Carpe Diem Baby – Metallica

“So wash your face, away with dirt
It don’t feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby.”

9. The Rainy Season – Marc Cohn

“Clouds move in
From off the horizon
Feels like nighttime
In the middle of the day
And I don’t know why
But it’s still so suprisin’
How a love grows stronger
Or it just fades away.”

10. Invisible Touch – Genesis

“Well I don’t really know her
I only know her name
But she crawls under your skin
You’re never quite the same
And now I know
She’s got something you just can’t trust
It’s something mysterious
And now it seems I’m falling, falling for her.”
