Ok, I'm feeling brave. Gonna give it a go. Wish me luck. Confused

Decompose as the river flows/ Become one scum together/ Become one forever/ One bloated, rotten, putrid scum forever
From East river.
I love this whole song (Seriously Jeff, you are a catch, why so down on youself?), and the way he seems to smake a scummy river the most romantic thing in the world.

And it puts a smile on my face/ Yes it do/ And let me tell you that you ought to be smiling too/ Cos the next time you're feeling kind of lonesome and blue/ Just think that someone somewhere might be singing about you
Probably not
From Chelsea Hotel
I love this whole song (I know it's an obvious choice, and he's probably sick of it), but I keep it as my personal mantra when I'm having a bad day. It is very uplifting, and written on loads of desks all over my school Confused

The whole verse about kissing in Life I laughed so hard I cried (and also cried anyway Embarassed ) The first time I heard this. Especially the talking on the album version about how the last person he kissed would have already had their baby, followed by the cute laugh. It made me really sad (I can TOTALLY relate) but also made me laugh. I wish I could kiss more, and I am young. Mad

When you feel ugly and petty/ Akward and unsteady/ Just try not to forget there's so many people who've liked you
From Alphabet. Another of my personal mantras (again, scrawled on countless tables when I've had a bad day). This is another lyric that I feel that I really relate too, and has picked me up when I've been sad.

Everyone's been fair and nice and you consider them a friend/ But everything still has a price and you don't wanna overspend
From Don't let the record label...
My Dad always used to say "There's no such thing as a free lunch" when I was a youngen. Whenever I hear this I tend to just sit their nodding.

And someday or other/ Maybe sooner or later/ They'll come to the realisation/ That what's important is whether you can carry on a human conversation/ It's not what you wear on the outside/ It's how you think and feel on the inside
I remember hearing this for the first time and just thinking how beautiful it all sounded and how everyone should hear it. Simple yet effective.

Come on please don't be upset my darling/ Just don't be upset/ I'll do anything baby/ Just don't be upset
I have yet to listen to that song without crying. I spent a whole history lesson writing out the lyrics in my book. It's so beautiful and always makes me feel really sad for Jeff. The way he calls her "My darling" just strikes a chord with me, and as I say, it always makes me cry. Jeff spends the whole song being sympathetic and then the girl just has a go at him when he needs her support, and still all he cares about is making her feel good again. A girl can dream.
I also like the line about the octopus.

And you'll never again see the angle/ Of the street that you saw from that window
From moving. Always makes me stare out of my bedroom like a crazy person. It's just an uber simple thought that never occured to me PJ (Pre. Jeff).

She's sorry that she missed the party/ She guesses that she didn't see the point/ Stay out and get drunk/ And wake up in a funk/ She could meet somone if she tried
From New old friends,
I've been having friend problems recently and I just identified with it a lot.

The whole of Chicago
It's just a series of ordinary events, but the way he tells them makes it seem like something really amazing a beautiful.

I said I needed some time. I'm sure I've missed something important as well.

Sorry for taking up a lot of space.
Oh, also I cry A LOT at songs (often Jeff's but ti doesn't have to be), especially the ones where he's putting himself down. WTF HAVE SOME SELF-CONFIDENCE. HERE'S A THOUGHT- YOU'RE INCREDIBLE.


Ok, sorry. I think I should go and have a lie down.

you don't have to act crazy
to do something amazing
you can be just like you should
and still do something really good

Though it takes so much strength
just not to suck
And not to be a cynic
looking for another gimmick

At the moment I'm loving:
I don't have a girlfriend and I wish I was more happy
Now I have a girlfriend and I wish I was more happy
Now I have two girlfriends and I wish I was more happy
Now I have four girlfriends and I wish I was more happy

And it seems thats just the way
(and it seems that's just the way)
It's all easier said than done, and it's not even easy to say.


Also

Being fine wasn't worth a mention so I didn't pay attention.

We could do stuff to promote peace
Become scientists, history teachers
Or uncorrupt police at least

I only want what I deserve ./ I want no less I want now more.

Manages to be humble and forceful at the same time.

The sun don't know, when it's glowing,
the flower don't know, when it's growing,
the river don't know, when it's flo-o-o-o-ing

You're doing better than you know.


I love that so much, and I really get it, too.

I try to live my life just like I’d always pictured it
Become my own self-fulfilling prophecy
Set my sights low so I don’t feel like I have far to go
But everyone’s honest eventually..

"At 15 getting stone felt good, it sent me back to childhood, and nothing ever mattered to me more than that".

Back when I was four.

When you feel like a jerk does it make you confused?
Like how could you become as awesome as you are and still feel like a loser?
