All I need is just to hear a song I know  

1. I Thought I Loved You Then ||Brad Paisley

I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you
You had me mesmerized
And 3 weeks later in the front porch light taking 45 min to kiss goodnight
I hadn’t told you yet but I thought I loved you then

Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.

WHY: One year anniversary! :3 Wish us luck with our future.

2. While My Guitar Gently Weeps ||The Beatles

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

WHY: Beatles Rockband for Christmas! This was Kelsey's favourite song to play, and since I accompanied her with my (horrid, but high-scoring) singing, this song was in my head a lot this month. XD


Requiem for a Jerk ||Placebo

Well the Devil left a message, go try paradise
Hell's a lot too hot, not too nice
Try to take in God if you've got the nerve
Even I don't need, stupid jerks

Listen to the organ that I play for you
Since you got no choice, hear me through
You look as if you like it, in your wooden shirt1
It's my requiem, for a jerk

WHY: Long story short, I'm amidst a fight that is much bigger than it needs to be with people who are very important to me over something which I find to be completely ridiculous. I've tried to make things better, but they both either ignoring me or telling me to leave them alone, so I haven't been to the dorm in ages. I can't WAIT to leave for England next week.


1. Southern Belles in London Sing ||The Faint

Georgian femmes are gone for weeks
Southern Belles in London Sing

I'm staring down the Eppley gate
Two more days before the plane arrives-

WHY: I went to London for Spring Break to stay with some friends I've had for the past five or six years. (Perhaps longer, with Kendra - I'm not quite sure.) It was fantasticly amazing, and I loved it there, and I honestly am just waiting for a chance to go back. It was beautiful and fun, and I miss my friends. :c

2. Dot Com ||Secret Secret Dino Club

It's a place for best friends
Hit you up on Facebook
Poke you and tag you, look
Mad pictures happenin'
Crazy, ill captions

WHY: The friends I went to go see were internet friends. I'm going to be honest and say that I thought it was gonna be way awkward, but it wasn't. ♥


1. Unpack Your Adjectives ||School House Rock

Friends asked us to describe
The people, places and every last thing.
So we unpacked our adjectives.

2. They Write Books About This Sort of Thing ||Say Hi to Your Mom

Because we can play some pac-man
Or go to the library
We can order some pat thai
Without the MSG

And they write books about this sort of thing
And they write books about this sort of thing
Yeah, they write books about this sort of thing

WHY: Both of these songs are on here for the same reason, so they only get one why. XD I was part of a 'fic exchange' this month, which, while somewhat stressful to have a deadline, was really fun. I love writing, and by writing someone else's prompt, I know for sure that I'm making someone else happy, which is nice. :) I know that sounds dorky. Hell, the whole thing sounds dorky. It was even for a dorky fandom. But then again, I'm using a School House Rock song to describe it and the other one mentions Pac-Man, so you should know it was gonna be dorky to begin with. ♥


Never Take Friendship Personal ||Anberlin

Innocence gone, never take friendship personal
If you can't hold yourself together
Why should I hold you now?
In a sense gone, never take friendship personal
If you can't hold yourself together
Why should I hold you now?

Once a skeptic, now the critic
And you think that you finally found a place of your own.
Amongst the cold and timid souls
Where only failure knows your name

WHY: Friendships haven't been my strong suit this year. Severed another tie, though this one had much less history behind it and was much more worthy of severing - not to mention I was the one who did the severing this time.


1. Kick Ass (We Are Young) ||Mika

We are young
We are strong
We're not looking for where we belong
We're not cool
We are free
And we're running with blood on our knees

WHY: I became OBSESSED with this song this month. I listened to it at least five times a day. I'm still obsessed with it, don't get me wrong, but this is when the obsession really started. XD

2. You've Got a Friend in Me ||Randy Newman

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
If you've got troubles, I've got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We stick together and can see it through
Cause you've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you
The way I do, it's me and you

Boy, and as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You're gonna see it's our destiny
You've got a friend in me

WHY: Three different reasons. A) I had one of my VERY BEST friends come all the way down from Florida to come and live with me for a month. Before we met our other mutual friend in London back in March, we had never met, but the three of us have been friends for longer than most any other friendships I have maintained, which is why it bothers me when people don't consider online friendships to be "real," considering these girls are closer to me than anyone I know in "real life" other than my parents and girlfriend (And sometimes they seem to get me better than even them). B) One of the friends who cut ties with me in February decided to bury the hatchet. We're not the same as we used to be, but it's nice to know she's always there, and we'll get back to our old selves with time. C) Toy Story 3. Went and saw it with the friend from Florida, and my tears cried.


1. Don't You (Forget About Me) ||Simple Minds

Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don't You Forget About Me
Don't Don't Don't Don't
Don't You Forget About Me

WHY: My friend from Florida left mid-July, and it's been kinda hard on both of us. I'm glad to have my apartment (more or less) to myself and she's glad to be back home, but we both miss having the other one around. :/ I suppose my next trip is going to be Florida! Haha.

2. Hello, My Name is Your TV ||Ludo

World outside where the lighting's off
Scenes last too long and you lose the plot
All the girls, they lie and they break your heart
And nothing's done when the streets go dark
Here, see California, where pretty people dream

And the good guy gets the girl by the sunny sea

WHY: I've probably been outside in the daylight a total of 8 hours in the past month. I've been applying to places to work, but haven't really been successful, and having nothing to do during the day usually sends me sleeping late into the afternoon and then just sitting around and watching TV until either my girlfriend gets home from work or my disappearing roommate comes home from class and actually decides to stay home for longer than thirty seconds. XD

Sorry I got so behind! I was in summer school for a while, and then I just forgot. :|
