[Verse 1]
Tell me all your little thoughts
Tie you up, not enough
Give me that bad love, bad love
Show me you’re a criminal
Bite it up till it talks
Give me that bad love, bad love

[Verse 2]
We could be high on feeling requisite
Under the thoughts, give me your love, give me your bones
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Verse 3]
Tell me you’re another girl
Heavy lust, heavy touch
Give me that bad love, bad love
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Chorus 2]
I’ll be your warmth here
And how can I wait?
I’m holding your bag for you
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Outro]
How can I wait?
Holding your bag for you

Northern Wind | City & Colour | Song Of The Quarter | Q3 2017

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

This song is #12 on my “most played” songs in iTunes.  The lyrics haunt me in a good way.  Just love the sound of Dallas.  3 years ago today… it played in a earbud against a wall…  After the song finished she could take her hands off the wall.  I needed the entire song to figure out how she kissed and I needed a head-start.  As the story goes… Two hours later… we went for drinks and left being in front of  that wall.  What a fucking crazy night.  Mind blown.

So for the entire length of the song… I could stand there and kiss her and all she could do is stand against a wall with her hands to her sides.  Did I mention it was the first time I met her in person…

I’m late picking my song of the quarter this year.  We will call this Q3 of 2017.  I still can’t decide on a song that represents my 2nd quarter of 2017… I will think of that one and update the blog.

“Northern Wind”

You’re the Northern Wind
Sending shivers down my spine
You’re like fallen leaves
In an autumn night

You’re the lullaby
That’s singing me to sleep
You are the other half
You’re like a missing piece

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
You don’t know
What you do to me

You are all four seasons
Rolled into one
You’re like the cold December snow
In the warm July sun

I’m the jet black sky
That’s just before the rain
Like the mighty current
Pullin’ you under the waves

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
You don’t know
What you do to me

I’m the darkest hour
Just before the dawn
And I’m slowly sinking
Into the slough of despond

Like an old guitar
Worn out and left behind
I have stories left to tell
They’re of the healing kind

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
If I could just
Find you tonight
If I could just find you tonight
Oh my love

Do do do [x5]

Love this song.  Makes me happy and positive.  Loved the words also.

There’s still so much that I can learn
That I won’t understand
But even so, all I know will be forgotten soonI’ll rise and fall again
Aimless and undulant
With blood that’s thicker than a bond
And my bones resolved to dust

There’s still a mountain to conquer
Because it’s there
And when I climb it I’ll know just how steep it was

I’ll rise and fall again
Aimless and undulant
With blood that’s thicker than a bond
And my bones resolved to dust

There’s still a lot I’ll become
On a road somewhere
Until the curtain call before the final act

I’ll rise and fall again
Aimless and undulant
With blood that’s thicker than a bond
And my bones resolved to dust

So, let the wind disperse
The traces of my steps

I’ll rise and fall again
There’s still a lot that I won’t understand

I’ll rise and fall again
There’s still a mountain because it’s there

I’ll rise and fall again
There’s still a lot I’ll become somewhere

Song Of The Quarter | Q1 Lost In The Light | Bahamas | 2017

Wow.  Super hard to pick a song for the first quarter.  I’ve been trying to decide on a song since dec.  I always love this song.  It’s calming.  I’m sure the next quarter will be a song from Alina Baraz since I just downloaded her album and I’m loving Fantasy + Make You Feel.  Hell “Show Me” is a great little mix with some groove in it.

But for now is Afie and his beautiful song that goes with my tumblr thoughts.

 

 

“Lost In The Light”

I’m lost in the light
I pray for the night
To take me, to take you too

After so many words
Still nothing’s heard
Don’t know what we should do

So if someone could see me now
Let them see you

’twas my greatest thrill
When we just stood still
You let me hold your hand ’til I had my fill

Even counting sheep
Don’t help me sleep
I just toss and turn right there beside ya

So if someone could help me now
They’d help you too

They’d help you too
See you through
All the hard things we’ve all gotta do

‘Cause this life is long
So you wouldn’t be wrong
Being free, leaving me on my own

And I held my own
Still I rattled your bones
I said some awful things and I take them back

If we would try again
Just remember when
Before we were lovers I swear we were friends

So if someone could see me now
Let them see you

Let them see you
See you through
All the hard things we’ve all gotta do

‘Cause this life is long
So you wouldn’t be wrong
Being free, leaving me on my own

Song Of The Quarter | Ry X with “Berlin” | 2016 | Q4

Yes I know I’ve posted this song.  I was to post a song on September 1st of what I’ve been listening to the most or what song best represents the quarter and it’s this song.  I’ve been listening to Ry X’s performance from France that is about a hour long on my rides to and from work.  This song always makes my mind smile.  Many wonderful memories to this song.

I’m glad I moved to quarterly songs from yearly songs at the start of 2015.

This song has been on repeat and it’s taken me 20 days to finalized this selection.  It’s a song for the quiet morning and it’s a song for the still in the night.  It’s a song to lie with someone and it’s a song to kiss them all over to.

I find it completely sexy in so many ways.  I’m not going to post the lyrics below since I don’t want to wreck what is inside my head.  Ry X is coming to Toronto 😉

Below is the video and at a certain point the video changes the mood of the song.

Song Of The Quarter | Leon Bridges | Two Sweet Songs

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

tumblr_nhv812zwuC1rkuhhzo1_540

This quarter… I’m picking two songs from Leon Bridges who I just love his vibe and I find these two songs truly romantic.  If I’m walking at night and I’m alone with the earbuds… I sing them.

I’m in that kind of mood and I wanted to share these two super sweet songs.  The first one is “Coming Home”.

Baby, baby, baby
I’m coming home
To your tender sweet loving
You’re my one and only woman
The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl
You’re the only one that I want

I wanna be around
I wanna be around you girl
I wanna be around girl
I wanna be around

Baby, how I’d be grieving
If you wanted to leave me all alone now
By myself, I don’t want nobody else
The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl
You’re the only one that I want

I wanna be around
I wanna be around you girl
I wanna be around girl
I wanna be around

Baby, baby, baby
I’m coming home
To your tender sweet loving
You’re my one and only woman
The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl
You’re the only one that I want

I wanna be around
I wanna be around you girl
I wanna be around girl
I wanna be around

I need you baby
Girl I, I need your loving
Darling, wanna hold you close
Girl, girl

The second song from Leon is “Better Man” and it’s just as sweet.

tumblr_o2k0m4t5Tz1tezjkso1_500


I don’t want much
I just wanna be a better man
To my baby
Meet me off good luck
I was singing with them Jezebels
Under perfume sheets
Got a golden smile, heart overflow
But got us in love, but it wasn’t enough

What can I do? What can I do?
To get back to your heart
I’d swim the Mississippi river
If you would give me another start, girl

All night long I was out
Out till the morning
But baby you’re tender
Love’s what I’m longing
Baby please, I’m down on my knees begging
I thirst for you girl
Baby I’m running to your well

What can I do? What can I do?
To get back to your heart
I’d swim the Mississippi river
If you would give me another start, girl
