Psapp – Cosy in the Rocket Lyrics 15 years ago
there are a few lyrics that need to be changed.

mainly "Stick stop blue you're only changing i
In the same old space you always knew"

In the same old shape you always do"

Sufjan Stevens – Romulus Lyrics 15 years ago
this song is very pretty.

i think that raving lunatic is correct with his/her meaning.

i thiink that in the first stanza or verse, he is describing how he did not feel as if he deserved her time, because she was busy and away, and in the second stanza, when she comes back to see her children, and her car breaks down they were so happy to see her, this is exemplified by "we touched her hair" which normally children touch thier mothers hair and play with it, and it is is a very intimate act. but they dont have that chance as thier mother is far away.... it is just very touching and i guess something i never thought of. very pretty.

Pas/cal – The Bronze Beached Boys Lyrics 16 years ago
oooo. pas/cal, you make me swoon.

i love all of their songs, they remind me of the summer time and staying on a wisconsin lake and sun-tanning everyday with sticky green floaties, two arms full of fashion magazines, a few ap english books , and a new bottle of protective tanning oil.

can't wait for the cd.

Death Cab for Cutie – The New Year Lyrics 16 years ago
yeah. so i just watched the video for this song and i really like that at the begining of the song the shots are relitively lethargic and slow. but when it speeds up ("so everybody put your best suit or dress on") the shots start going faster with the old guys playing cards, not hitting the beats just moving faster.

Death Cab for Cutie – Passenger Seat Lyrics 16 years ago
this song reminds me of ..... hard to explain.... hm... okay,
have you ever been so content, so utterly satisfied, that you just cant say anything for the fear of ruining the moment? so what do you do instead? you sigh, a happy, satisfied sigh. i do this all of time when i am in the woods in wisconsin with my friends at night. i think that the lyrics to this song are everything that is meant to be implied in that sigh.

i love the fact that this song just goes hand in hand with the last two lines of the DCfC song "passenger seat" that goes "when you feel embarressed then i'll be your pride, when you need directions then i'll be the guide" I LOVE BOTH OF THESE SONGS <3 <3 <3

Onelinedrawing – Smile Lyrics 16 years ago
this song makes me cry because on my birthday i was listening to it (i was all alone) and i started to cry right when this song came on and this song will forever remind me of how utterly depressed i was on my sixteenth birthday. it is a really cool song, exept for the fact that i have never listened to it without bawling.

Death Cab for Cutie – The New Year Lyrics 16 years ago
"and i have no resolution
it's self-assigned penance
for problems with easy solutions"
i live these lines they make me laugh when i hear them because it is so true. resolutions are just there to make you feel bad about yourself and then you never get these easy things done.
ive totally done this before and it i love this song because it points these things out
