  • My room has seven doors and seven burning windows.

    27 avr. 2012, 15h00m

    My room is full of trees
    my room is full of guns and roses
    it’s under seventhousand feet
    it is in the deep, deep ocean

    And this is all I am and nothing more than this
    it is all about my fear of heights and fallen trees

    High above the skies, so far, so far
    there is so much light, I was there before
    under burning trees, I’m blind, I’m so blind

    Help me to remember this and please remind me

    My room has seven doors and seven burning windows
    my bed is full of smoke that every night I breathe in

    And this is all I am and nothing more than this
    it is all about my fear of heights and fallen trees

    High above the skies, so far, so far
    there is so much light, I was there before
    under burning trees, I’m blind, I’m so blind

    Help me to remember this and please remind me

    Denison Witmer - Christmas Song
    Christmas day
    In the stillness that protects this day
    The string of lights was strung into a tree
    A string of lights was strung inside of me
    I felt at peace and fell asleep
    I felt at peace and slept


    Chris Garneau - It's Almost Christmas!
    Before mass produciton of fire place stockings
    Families would make them from scratch
    With patches and old scraps of blankets and clothing
    It really didn't matter if they matched


    Sufjan Stevens - We're Goin' to the Country!
    Find a tree and put it in your house
    Put a misletoe upon your mother's blouse
    If you see woman dressed in black
    Give her up a song and then ask for it back
    We're going to the the country


    Brett Dennen - The Holidays Are Here (And We're Still At War)
    Pilgrims in the parking lot
    Arteries clogged with blood clots
    Pushing through the aisles of department stores
    Neon crosses and Christmas lights
    Credit card debts and brand new bikes
    The holidays are here and we're still at war


    Eels - Christmas Is Going To The Dogs
    Get off your sled and go to bed
    Don't you ever tire?
    Throw a bone, I'm finally home
    Curled up by the fire
    Snow is falling from the sky like ashes from an urn
    Sweet dreams, my little one
    Now it's my turn

    Well, Christmas is going to the dogs
    We'd rather have chew toys than Yule logs
    And things aren't looking very good, it's true
    So I'll just lay here and chew


    Sufjan Stevens - That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!
    Going outside
    Shoveling snow in the driveway
    Taking our shoes
    Riding a sled down the hillside
    Can you say what you want?
    Can you say what you want to be?
    Can you be what you want?


    Rilo Kiley - Xmas Cake
    There's no more running water
    Wrapping presents in the dark
    Move into your car
    Change where you park
    Too bad that job caroling department stores fell through
    But the new year is right in front of you

    Cry into your Christmas cake
    Don't know what else to do


    Sufjan Stevens - It's Christmas! Let's Be Glad
    Since it's Christmas, let's be glad
    Even if your life's been bad
    There are presents to be had


    Death Cab for Cutie - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
    They're singing "Deck the Halls"
    But it's not like Christmas at all
    I remember when you were here
    And all the fun we had last year

    Pretty lights on the tree
    I'm watching them shine
    You should be here with me
    Baby, please come home


    Bright Eyes - Blue Christmas
    I'll have a blue Christmas, that's certain
    When all those blue memories start hurting
    You'll be doing all right, with your Christmas of white
    But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas


    Ron Sexsmith - Maybe This Christmas
    Maybe this Christmas will mean something more.

    Sufjan Stevens - Hey Guys! It's Christmas Time!
    We can walk out after dark
    Because it's Christmas time
    Colored lights glow from the park
    Because it's Christmas time
    And the bells on the reindeer sled say
    It's Christmas time
    And the quilts on the back of the bed say
    It's Christmas time


    Damien Rice - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
    And a very merry Christmas
    And a happy New Year
    Let's hope it's a good one
    Without any fear


    Tom McRae - Wonderful Christmastime
    The moon is right
    The spirits up
    We're here tonight
    And that's enough
    Simply having
    A wonderful christmastime


    Leona Naess - Christmas
    Like christmas stays with you
    Walk through darkened streets as we lay true
    Lights from your heart lead me to you


    Bright Eyes - White Christmas
    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know
    Where the treetops glisten and children listen
    To hear sleigh bells in the snow
    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write
    May your days be merry and bright
    And may all your Christmases be white
    May your days be merry and bright
    And may all your Christmases be white


    Lisa Hannigan - Silent Night
    Silent night, broken night
    All is fallen when you take your flight
    I found some hate for you
    Just for show
    You found some love for me
    Thinking I'd go
    Don't keep me from crying to sleep
    Sleep in heavenly peace

    Silent night, moonlit night
    Nothing's changed
    Nothing is right
    I should be stronger than weeping alone
    You should be weaker than sending me home
    I can't stop you fighting to sleep
    Sleep in heavenly peace


    Rachael Yamagata - River
    It's coming on Christmas
    They're cutting down trees
    They're putting up reindeer
    And singing songs of joy and peace

    Oh I wish I had a river
    I could skate away on

    But it don't snow here
    It stays pretty green
    I'm gonna make a lot of money
    And I'm gonna quit this crazy scene

    Oh I wish I had a river
    I could skate away on


    Sufjan Stevens - Sister Winter
    Now my heart is
    Returned to sister winter
    Now my heart is
    As cold as ice

    All my friends
    I've returned to sister winter
    All my friends
    I apologise, apologise

    And my friends
    I've returned to wish you all the best
    And my friends
    I've returned to wish you a happy Christmas


    Bright Eyes - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
    Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    Let your heart be light
  • Autumn Days - My Autumn Mixtape

    30 sept. 2007, 13h19m




    The Shins - The Past and Pending
    As someone sets light to the first fire of autumn
    We settle down to cut ourselves apart


    Gus Black - Autumn Days
    The blame won't change autumn days
    When the sky is falling
    Hey, hey
    Don't waste one more day
    Love the sky falling


    Devendra Banhart - Autumn's Child
    Autumn's child, raise your head.

    Sea Wolf - Leaves In The River
    The wind came down from up the plains
    And blew the leaves all through the streets
    I wondered how far leaves could really fly
    Would they rest in several yards
    Or make it to the city
    Or would they end up in the river just to float away


    Flowers From the Man Who Shot Your Cousin - The Branch
    I wanted my life's work
    To be like an ever-growing forest
    So vast that you could lose your way in it


    Paolo Nutini - Autumn
    Hear him singing while he sits there in his chair
    While these autumn leaves float around everywhere


    Chris Garneau - Halloween
    I'm sorry, he brought us there
    Me crying in my underwear
    On the morning of Halloween
    Like a story out of People Magazine
    I drove home and fell asleep alone

    I'm sorry for crying, don't feel bad
    You didn't do that

    Black and blues and yellows too
    Fade the same as embers do
    Wake up tomorrow and feel new


    Rocky Votolato - October
    Feel your losses you'll know that it's October
    Stretched out short days eat you from within
    Lives lived brought back homeward
    I'm leaving home again


    My Morning Jacket - Old September Blues
    Put away your corset, put away your shoe
    Put away the old September blues


    The Mountain Goats - In the Hidden Places
    Autumn came around like a drifter to an on-ramp
    There were wet leaves floating in gutters full of rain
    Took to walking barefoot around town
    Melodies from grade school kicking in my brain


    Iron And Wine - Her Tea Leaves
    When autumn comes, she'll be there
    Jasmine still in her hair
    Her tea leaves dry by the sea


    Okkervil River - A Leaf
    And then he'd feel like a leaf lifted by wind.

    The Good Life - October Leaves (Acoustic)
    Now autumn has fallen, everything's changed.

    Great Lake Swimmers - Moving Pictures Silent Films
    Where have you been?
    And what have you done?
    I've been under the ground
    Eating prayers from this old book I found
    Under the ground
    Saving it up
    And spending it all
    On moving pictures
    Silent films


    Scatteredtrees - Blackbirds In Autumn
    All the blackbirds in autumn they fly like a cloud in my mind just to cover up the sun.

    Fireworks Night - The Gold Leaves
    There may never be a brightness to conceal us
    There will always be a blackness to consume us


    Tanakh - November Tree
    So, you’re calling all your birds to land on me
    Your cold and dark November tree


    Azure Ray - November
    I was afraid to be alone
    But now I'm scared that's how I like to be


    The Album Leaf - September Song
    instrumental

    Need More Sources - Autumn

  • Underwater Lullabies & Mermaids

    15 mai 2007, 23h39m



    Every time I see this picture I fall in love with it all over again. It is a photograph of the band Beach House (http, MySpace) and I think it's just breathtakingly beautiful. The picture captures perfectly what kind of music Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally create. Their songs are wonderful dreamy tunes that are magical and hold a special kind of beauty. A beauty that is quiet, almost shy and laced with melancholy. Their soft music reminds me of underwater lullabies and mermaids, it reminds me of calm autumn days at the seaside and of long lost childhood memories.

    Beach House are wonderful, please buy their record.
