LYRICS:

Well I know my death will not come
'Til I breathe all the air out my lungs
'Til my final tune is sung
That all is fleeting
Yeah, but all is good
And my love is my whole being
And I've shared what I could
But if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own
Don't break his heart
Yeah if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own
Don't break his heart

Well my heart is bigger than the earth
And though life is what gave it love first
Life is not all that it's worth
'Cause life is fleeting
Yeah, but I love you
And my love surrounds you like an ether
In everything that you do
But if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own
Don't break his heart
Yeah if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own
Don't break his heart
Yeah if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own
Don't break his heart
Yeah if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own
Don't break his heart

Well if you are (what you love)
And you do (what you love)
I will always be the sun and moon to you
And if you share (with your heart)
Yeah, you give (with your heart)
What you share with the world is what it keeps of you

Andrew Belle – All Those Pretty Lights

Another one to add to the playlist. Found this online when i was randomly looking through artists I like.

Leave some comments!

Check him out: http://www.andrewbelle.com/

Here is some background:
Andrew Belle is a 24 year old singer-songwriter from Chicago, IL. Combining hook-ridden melodies and powerful vocals, Belle has become a respected name amongst young performers in the Chicago music circuit. He has performed hundreds of shows in the past 2 years; quickly becoming a favorite at Downtown Chicago’s national hot-spot ‘Rock It Bar and Grill’. Releasing his debut recording ‘All Those Pretty Lights EP’ on iTunes this fall; expect big things in the near future for this bright, young talent (source - Last.fm)





LYRICS:

the wind blows through your hair
as you're walking people stare
up the block and down the street
to north kings highway
and there's a beating in my chest
and it's seeming to suggest
that before this day is through
it might go my way
so i sit back in my seat
i scribble down something that's sweet
about a boy, a girl, an endless stretch of scenery
cause it's like falling to your knees
before a stranger on the street
i did it just the other day
you should have seen me

oh and i wanna remember this night
and how my words never came out right
it's just my patience that keeps me alive
just like all those pretty lights
just like all those pretty lights in the sky

there's something to be said
about the colors in your head
and how they mix to form
the perfect shade of sadness
not because of things i've done
or any of the songs i've sung
it's just the story of our lives
we wish we had this

oh and i wanna remember this night
and how my words never came out right
it's just my patience that keeps me alive
just like all those pretty lights
just like all those pretty lights in the sky

and i remember we stayed up
way past you're bedtime
up on the 2nd floor
down by my sliding door
just innocent kids
in a victimless crime
trapped in a metaphor
hoping for something more

i wanna remember this night
and how my words never came out right
and it's just my patience that keeps me alive
oh, just like all those pretty lights
just like all the pretty lights in the sky

and i wanna remember this night
and how my words never came out right
it's just my patience that keeps me alive
just like all those pretty lights
just like all those pretty lights in the sky
in the sky, just like all those pretty lights.
just like all the pretty lights in the sky.
in the sky, just like all those pretty lights.
just like all the pretty lights in the sky.

LYRICS:

i was outside smoking.
with the fall winds just beginning.
you were still inside mixing drinks.
with the music.
and the night was there for you.
as a backdrop.
and the streets were still and dark.
cause they had the rain.
to help calm them down.
and then you came back out.
sipping your drink.
to the rhythm of a cold night in virginia.
i'm ready and i'm willing

A Great Big Pile of Leaves - Alligator Bop

Thanks to "shandrydan" for requesting" <3

Here is what they had to say about the song:

Fav: "The sound was like music, We were a movie."

I saw these guys playing the opening set for a Say Anything/Motion City Soundtrack show. They were amazing. By the end of the night, I was more excited that I got to see the opening act than anything else.

This song's all about those teenage years spent with a car full of friends, little direction, and a lot of laughs. Something that I hope most people would be able to relate. Most of my life has been spent in the backseat of my best friend's Cavalier, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Lets get a little bit of background on the band:

Website: http://www.agreatbigpileofleaves.com/

From: Brooklyn, NY

Members:
Peter Weiland - Guitarist/Singer
Tyler Soucy - Drummer
Tucker Yaro - Bass

You can download their new record, “Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?”, for free on their webiste.



LYRICS:

Friday afternoon would roll around after a week of catching up on sleep,
That was missed from the weekend before.
Classtime was great for catching up on sleep.

We’d bomb right over to the donut shop to collect bags of whatever we could get our hands on,
It usually ended up to be an abundance that would start the night off.

The sound was like music,
We were a movie.

Then heading to the packie,
With hopes that a fake ID would be enough to make it a little more lively.

We’d drive around for hours with no direction and no goal except to act stupid,
And intertwine ourselves into situations to laugh about.

Train - Meet Virginia

Dedicated to my friend and his latest obsession...





LYRICS:

She doesn't own a dress
Her hair is always a mess
You catch her stealin' she won't confess
She's beautiful

Smokes a pack a day, but wait, that's me, but anyway
She doesn't care a thing, about that hair
She thinks I'm beautiful
Meet Virginia

She never compromises, loves babies and surprises
Wears high heels when she exercises
Ain't that beautiful
Meet Virginia

Well she wants to be the queen
Then she thinks about her scene
Pulls her hair back as she screams
"I don't really wanna be queen"

Her daddy wrestles alligators
Mama works on carburetors
Her brother is a fine mediator
For the president

And here she is again on the phone
Just like me hates to be alone
We just like to sit at home
And rip on the president
Meet Virginia

Well she wants to live her life
Then she thinks about her life
Pulls her hair back, as she screams
"I don't really wanna live this life", no, no, no

She only drinks coffee at midnight
But the moment is not right
And the time is quite, unusual

You see her confidence is tragic
But her intuition magic
And the shape of her body, unusual

Meet Virgina, I can't wait to
Meet Virginia, yeah, yeah, hey, hey

Well, she wants to be the queen
Then she thinks about her scene
Well, she wants to live her life
Then she thinks about her life

Pulls her hair back as she screams
I don't really wanna be the queen, ah, ah
I don't really wanna be the queen, ah, ah
I don't really wanna be the queen, ah, ah
I don't really wanna live here

E for Explosion - See You Soon

Found this song on last.fm "Recommended radio". Sweeeeet. It is so sweet and definitely deserves as much publicity as it can get. My favorite lyrics are:
"and how the dusk lasted so long that
you thought the day had won"
-and-
"I will sing you to sleep with that very same song
so you'll know you're not alone"

What are yours?

Check them out: http://www.myspace.com/eforexplosion

Their most recent blog update is in reference to their new EP:

" Our new EP, "Hold Grudges Not Hands" is officially on Itunes for purchase now. I know its a couple of days late so I just thought I'd say thank you for your patience while we figured things out. The ratio of support versus the "are you fucking kidding me" comments was amazing and a great reminder of why we love the group of people who continuously support this band. I hope you enjoy these four songs that have taken so long to release... I also hope they do well to sustain you while we make our preparations for the next release. There is a lot of music waiting around to be heard... we're now undertaking the job of choosing, updating and adding in the songs that keep spilling out.

take care..."

Alternative rock/Shoegazing

(Tab That I Wrote)

LYRICS:

Sleep all summer long
for when the autumn comes
I'll be tangled in your arms
with the miles between us long gone.

Dream all summer long
for when the autumn comes
you'll have wandered into my arms
full of memories of a season long gone.

Try and remember the fireflies and the twilight's
and how the dusk lasted so long that
you thought the day had won
and that idea that made no sense
so lonely and out of place at home in your own bed
you're not alone...

Sing all summer long
for when the summer's gone
and you're drifting off in my arms
I will sing you to sleep with that very same song
so you'll know you're not alone

LYRICS:

I belong to bad intentions, please tell you're not coming over tonight,
I have the worst intentions, please tell me you're not thinking the same thing

The last time I saw you, we were staring at each other across the room,
I backed out, fate stepped in, and we ended up alone

I'm the subject of investigation, please excuse me if I don't come over tonight,
I'm preceded by my reputation, but standing between us there is one thing

As we approach your door, you try to convince me it's right, that we're alive, but in the back of my mind, I know we're destroying lives

You've got me down on the floor, you try to convince it's right, that we're alive, but on the tip of my tongue, I know we're destroying lives

LYRICS:

Early in the morning, wake up to a bright blue sky
lightning comes at any time to break it down and make it ugly
I know that it's just for me
'cause no one else can feel or understand
that's alright because I can handle all that you throw down

and I hope you find a perfect place
where skies are beautiful all of the time
it's all that matters, pretty, pretty
and I know that's all you could care about
there's no reason why you can't

it's all about the icing, and nobody cares about what's inside
you could see the outside face, it looks good, it must be great
and I know that's all you see
what would it matter anyway
'cause I can see right through your pretty, pretty skin today

and I hope you find a perfect place
where sky's are beautiful all of the time
it's all that matters, pretty, pretty
and I know that's all you could care about
there's no reason why you can't

and no reason why I should try to go on anymore
my reason's all gone, no reason why you should
try to make excuses to make me feel alright
excuses call for stupid reasons
and I know that it's not much that I can offer right now
just give me one little second and I will try my hardest
to make you feel like I'm someone else.
