swell.season

today i lifted my self-imposed ban of all love songs.  i have been listening to swell season’s strict joy as a reward to myself for not indulging in the typical post-break-up-depression i am used to.  sure, i’ve been sad at times and sure, i’ve been nostalgic – but overall, i’ve just been too busy to sink too deep.

and i’ve let myself vent to the internet to get those feelings out of my system instead of letting it brew inside of my soul.  so, here is a beautiful song from the album that i enjoy a(n unhealthily) large amount:

In These Arms – Swell Season

use the truth as a weapon

to beat up your friends

every chink in the armor

an excuse to cause offense

and the boys from the hallway calling out your name

and true love will find them in the end

you were restless

i was somewhat less secure

so i went running to the road

and so now there’s a long list of places i was

i quit my rambling and came home

cause maybe i was born to hold you in these arms

maybe i was born to hold you in these arms

use your saints and your mantra

and your things to keep you calm

if you stay with that asshole

he’s gonna do you harm

there’s a voice singing loudly on the radio just for you

that good fortune will find him in the end

maybe i was born to hold you in these arms…

8.august

i was falling in love

while you were getting bored

more of this heartache

i just cannot afford

so don’t expect a smile

when you knock on my door

perhaps next time you’ll

think twice before

you promise the moon and the stars

so as to secure a heart

and then you back away

as soon as its passed the start

i am still so excited by

the mere thought of you

but i must begin to realize

that the only one you care for is you

cause how else can such a change

come about in just one day

so stay away from me

there is no other way

maybe you’ll think it’s too sad

for me to cry out with this guitar

but i’m sick of staying silent

so i’m seeking console from the smoke in this bar

perhaps you’ll think twice

before you promise the moon and your heart

and maybe tomorrow you’ll play nice

but you’re not getting a second start

what good can possibly come

of being cautious with your heart

i could never deny you anything

when you make love like it’s an art

so, why bother building up walls

while your eyes ask me to tear them apart

oh, what fun can be had

while you’re so cautious with your heart

what good can possibly come

of being cautious with your hands

i’ve already told you true

you have me, baby, before any other man

i promise i won’t shatter at your touch

so your apprehension i don’t understand

what, oh, what fun can be had

when you’re so cautious with your hands

what good can possibly come

of being cautious with your lips

that first kiss i received from you

made my heart want to quit

i think about kissing you

and my clothes off i want to rip

so what fun can be had

when you’re so cautious with your lips

what good can come

of being cautious with your heart

i could never deny you anything

so why can’t we just start

what fun can be had

if you’re cautious with your heart

i need you so, right now

so don’t be cautious with your heart
