My 5 Music Obsessions 

1. Safe House :: The Boxer Rebellion

“One eye open,
I look away.
I was searching,
but couldn’t take anymore.”

2. Everything You’ve Done Wrong :: Sloan

“So don’t hide yourself away,
Let it shine,
let it shine.”


3. Infinite Arms :: Band Of Horses

“And then everything
was really hurt,
and I was so lonely.
I didn’t see it’s like
living in a movie.”


4. Your Heart is an Empty Room (live) :: Death Cab For Cutie

“The flames and smoke climbed out of every window,
and disappeared with everything that you held dear,
and you shed not a single tear for the things that you didn’t need,
’cause you knew you were finally free.”


5. First :: Cold War Kids

“There comes a time,
in a short life,
turn it around,
get a rewrite.
Call it a dark,
night of the soul,
ticking of clocks,
gravity’s pull.
First you get close,
then you get worried.”
