Love / Paranoia

Tame Impala

 / Love / Paranoia /

I may not be as honest as I ought to be now
When the walls go up, I said it didn’t worry me
But it hit me and I cannot hold it in
I can just be paranoid, don’t quell the desire to love
What was really going on, does it really fucking matter?
Baby is all you can ask me, ok, fair play here we go

I’ve heard those words before
Are you sure it was nothing
Cause it made me feel like dying inside
And I was insecure, but it’s pure
Didn’t notice until I was in love for real
And my feels gonna cross the line
Just to find what your type is
If only I could reach your mind
Oh I’d be fine, I’d be normal
Now’s my time, gonna do it
And suddenly I’m the phony one
The only one with a problem
True love it bringing it out of me
The worst of me, and I know now
Do you remember the time we were
The time we were by the ocean
I didn’t care if it was day or night
We were right where I wanted
Girl I’m sorry, babe I’m really really sorry

That Don’t Impress Me Much

HAIM

/ That Don’t Impress Me Much (Shania Twain’s cover) /

I’ve known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart

But you’ve got being right down to an art

You think you’re a genius-you drive me up the wall

You’re a regular original, a know-it-all

Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re special

Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else

Okay, so you’re a rocket scientist

That don’t impress me much

So you got the brain but have you got the touch

Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright

But that won’t keep me warm in the middle of the night

That don’t impress me much

I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket

And a comb up his sleeve-just in case

And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughta lock it

‘Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place

Oh-oo-oh, so you think you’re something special

Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else

Okay, so you’re Brad Pitt

That don’t impress me much

So you got the looks but have you got the touch

Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright

But that won’t keep me warm in the middle of the night

That don’t impress me much

You’re one of those guys who likes to shine his machine

You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in

I can’t believe you kiss your car good night

C’mon baby tell me-you must be jokin’, right!

Oh-oo-oh, so you think you’re something special

Oh-oo-oh, you think you’re something else

Okay, so you’ve got a car

That don’t impress me much

So you got the moves but have you got the touch

Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright

But that won’t keep me warm in the middle of the night

That don’t impress me much

You think you’re cool but have you got the touch

Don’t get me wrong, yeah I think you’re alright

But that won’t keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night

That don’t impress me much

Okay, so what do you think you’re Elvis or something

Whatever

That don’t impress me

Behind Closed Doors

The Strypes

/ Behind Closed Doors /

It’s a national crisis
Your dependence on vices
I’m amazed at your resilience
To laugh at the other drunken millions
When the clothes you’ve worn to work today
Are speckled with sick and beaujolais
Hit with the hammer of hard home truths
There’s only one thing that’s left to do

Put your plans on the long finger
Leave your wife promise the kids you’ll see them
But they know that’s just feeble optimism
You’d like to think you’d have kept in touch
Some consideration for someone you love
But you were never very into altruism

Behind closed doors, decisions are made
Behind closed doors

Become disenchanted and get your own place
Maudlin in private the tears fall with grace
On damp sheets that smell of dual pack lenore
And the cigarette ash from the night before
A threadbare sofa out in the street
The crumblin’ bus station couldn’t be more bleak
An old man and his dog just sit and talk
You have to wonder who’s taking who for a walk

Put your plans on the long finger
Leave your wife promise the kids you’ll see them
But they know that’s just feeble optimism
You’d like to think you’d have kept in touch
Some consideration for someone you love
But you were never very into altruism

Behind closed doors, decisions are made
Behind closed doors, you never know what goes on

There’s no recourse to be taken here
The ignored phone calls have made it clear
They’re better off without you in every way
You pass in the street but there’s nothing to say
There comes a time when you have to decide
Do you put your family before your pride
You’d rather see them happy in their own way
Than miserable with you for another day

Behind closed doors, decisions are made
Behind closed doors
Behind closed doors, decisions are made
Behind closed doors, you never know what goes on

Skinny Love

Bon Iver

/ Skinny Love /

Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer
I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in the moment this order’s tall
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
In the morning I’ll be with you
But it will be a different kind
‘Cause I’ll be holding all the tickets
And you’ll be owning all the fines
Come on skinny love what happened here
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted?
Then who the hell was I?
Now I’m breaking at the bridges
And at the end of all your lines
Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
Come on skinny love
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my

Unlike Any Other

Foy Vance

 / Unlike Any Other /

I’m sometimes whole
But still don’t know
If you’re my other
There’s always hope
I’ll style your home
And love your brother

Time’s moved on
I’m feeling strong
Getting better
But there is an age old love
Showing up
Sure enough

Let it come and go
Let it ebb and flow out
‘Cause I don’t want for you to love me just like any other

The breaking dawn
The fading sun
And the moonlit waters
There’s an age old love
Showing up
Sure enough

Well let it come and go
Let it ebb and flow out
I don’t want for you to love me just like any other

A simple glass of water
Plans upon a parlour
The way I see you love her
The way you hold your gaze strong
And take on all the world’s wrong
Yet sing it like a sweet song

Oh it’s starting to become clear
I’m loving all that is, dear
Now about your allergy to shed tears

Well let them end their roll
Let them ebb or flow down
But I don’t want for you to love me just like any other

It took too long to finally love
For you to find me, love

Troubled souls unite we got ourselves tonight
I am fuel you are friends we got the means to make amends
I am lost I’m no guide but I’m by your side
I am right by your side

Young lover I stand
It was their idea I proved to be a man
Take my fucking hand
It was their idea I proved to be a man
Will myself to find a home a home within myself
We will find a way we will find our place

Drop the leash drop the leash
Get outta’ my fuckin’ face

Drop the leash, we are young
Oh, get outta’ my fuckin’ face
Drop the leash, drop the leash
Get outta’ my, my

Delight, delight, delight in our youth
Get outta’ my fuckin’ face
