Reflections of a Skyline

And I wanna play hide and seek, give you my clothes, tell you I love your shoes, sit on the steps when you take a bath, and massage your neck, and kiss your face, and hold your hand and go for a walk. Not mind when you eat my food, and meet you at Rudy’s and talk about the day. Talk about your day and laugh at your paranoia. Give you tapes you don’t listen to, watch great films… watch terrible films. And tell you about the TV program I saw the night before, and not laugh at your jokes. Want you in the morning, but let you sleep for awhile. Tell you how much I love your eyes, your lips, your neck. Sit on the steps smoking ‘til your neighbors come home. Sit on the steps smoking ‘til you come home. And worry when you’re late, and be amazed when you’re early. I’d give you sunflowers and go to your party and dance. Be sorry when I’m wrong and happy when you forgive me. Look at your photo’s and wish I’d known you forever. Hear your voice in my ear, feel your skin on my skin. And get scared when you’re angry. I tell you you’re gorgeous. And hug you when you’re anxious and hold you when you’re hurt and want you when I smell you and offend you when I touch you and whimper when I’m next to you, and whimper when I’m not. Smother you in the night and get cold when you take the blanket and hot when you don’t. Melt when you smile, dissolve when you laugh. But not understand how you think I’m rejecting you when I’m not rejecting you and wonder how you could think I’d ever reject you. And wonder who you are. But I accept you anyway. And tell you about the tree angel and enchanted forest boy who flew across the ocean because he loved you. I’d buy you presents you don’t want and take them away again and ask you to marry me and you say no again but keep on asking because though you think I don’t mean it but I always have from the first time I asked you. I wander the city thinking, but I’m empty without you, but I want what you want and think I’m losing myself. But I’ll tell you the worst me and try and give you the best of me, because you don’t deserve any less. Answer your questions when I’d rather not. And tell you the truth when I really don’t want to. And try to be honest because I knew you prefer it. And think it’s all over but hang on for just ten more minutes before you throw me out of your life, forget who I am. And let me try and get closer you.

…And somehow communicate some of the over-whelming, undying, overpowering, unconditional, all-encompassing, heart-enriching, mind-expanding, ongoing, never-ending love I have for you.

Tranquility

sawyerjamaal:

In monochrome moments

And fire lit freeze-frames

Is where I find myself the most.

The rain on the window keeps soft rhythm

While the fire crackles in response.

A cloudless sky hides behind those eyes.

So serene, this scene unfolds:

A roaring fire, harmonious rain, and a metronome heartbeat.

Album Review: Codes and Keys by Death Cab For Cutie
The first time I heard about this one was last week at Starbucks. I didn’t know Death Cab came out with a new one and had honestly forgotten about them. I’m fickle and unfaithful when it comes to my music. Anything can sway me.
Especially the intro to “Doors Unlocked & Open” on this album. My shoulders just sway. Then Gibbard’s vocals kick in and my lips mouth the lyrics as a new persona for that 5 minutes and 37 seconds emerges. 
Death Cab For Cutie is characterized for having a carefree air to their songs. The perfect type of music you want to play on a nice sunny day or while you’re out on a picnic. Even their sad music lifts ones spirits. There is a hint of hopefulness in Gibbard’s vocals. Or it might be the instrumentals.
“Monday Morning” is one of those songs from a lyrical standpoint a melancholy song but this song is just the thing a person needs on their Monday morning ride to work.
“Home is A Fire” from the look of the title seems like it might be one of those upbeat songs but this title is deceiving. It’s a song that a couple walking through a field of wheat would have playing in the background and then break out in a slow-dance under the moon.
“St. Peter’s Cathedral” is quite a mystery to me. I have no idea what they are referencing. Every time this landmark is mentioned I think of Michaelangelo or Da Vinci but then I have to remind myself that a Basilica is different from a cathedral. 
“Stay Young & Go Dancing” does not sound like something DCFC would sing. It’s very folk more than it is pop or indie. Quite the outlier of the entire album. However it does have that feel good vibe Death Cab is known for (by me).
“Some Boys” with the bass sounds quite angsty and ominous. But of course there’s Gibbard’s vocals and that makes the entire track soothing. He’s like the Mike Shinoda of this band.
“You Are A Tourist” is the top 40 track on this album. This is the track they will most likely play on the radio and on car commercials. This track is like the stuff out of Plans. 
And that’s all I’ve listened to up until now. Other reviews online say that this track is not very guitar-centric but I still hear the guitar and the guitar definitely does it for me. The upbeat nature of it. I guess I’m just very partial to “Doors Unlocked & Open”. It’s my favorite one out of this whole album. The intro is just sick!

The baristo at the cafe in town has been bugging me about getting a song off this album ever since it was out. I have been procrastinating doing so, but I think today, while I’m at Le Target, I will be an owner of the album because of this detailed review!
Being that it is a sunny morning, and I’ll be heading to work today, will be just that perfect day to go out and get this! Thanks!

Happiness and Sorrow

Our days on this earth are numbered. These days have a beginning and an end. A birth, then a death. Some believe in a life after death, some do not. Some believe that in this life we are born with a purpose, some do not. Whatever you believe, the reality is this; After birth, the moment you breathe that first breath, you are introduced with life. When you die, you take your last breathe and that signals the end of life on Earth. 

Between birth and death, we have what is called a life. Life is defined as the animate existence or period of animate existence of an individual. Some define life as the events, some the memories. But what makes up those events in our existence are those we all wish only the best of. Humanity as a whole defines the moments that we find the pinnacle of our lives as a product of happiness.

Happiness is crucial to our overall sense of being. Without happiness, we are nothing. We are not the friendly neighbor, the kind citizen, or the small ray of light that keeps others in tune with their own felling of joy and happiness that we bring upon them through our own.

Although happiness is crucial to the lives of people around us and our own, we are not entitled to happiness, but the pursuit of happiness will be the life long endeavor that we will always find so prodigious as we go through droughts and famines of joy. In spite of this simple fact that melancholy will be a part of this endeavor we cannot let it bring us down further. These times of suffering and grief are the same events that we base the simple factor of happiness and joy on. 

So do not let these times of melancholy and grief bring you down. Instead, them play their part in your life as the catalyst that just enhances the good in your life. Moreover do not let your times of sorrow turn you into a person that you are not. Sorrow is so powerful that it can become contiguous to people around you. 

Find a solid balance between happiness and sorrow to affect you and people around you in a positive way. This is because you are the light that shines through this Earth and there will be a day that you will burn out.

Thank You

Drake
