If Winter Ends


And I scream for the sunlight or a car to take me anywhere
Just get me past this dead and eternal snow
'Cause I swear that I am dying, slowly, but it's happening
And if the perfect spring is waiting somewhere
Just take me there
Just take me there
Just take me there
And say, and lie to me and say
And lie to me and say
It’s gonna be all right…”

Eyy. Nice to see this one on my feed. For whatever reason, this has been my favorite Bright Eyes song since I was like fifteen years old. Considering it’s the first track on Happiness, I guess it was more than likely the first one I ever heard, so. Probably explains the affinity.

First one I learned how to play, too!

Same chord progression as the Decemberists’ “Crane Wife 3,” actually.


Hospital Ships - Galaxies
Lonely Twin | 2011 (Graveface)

Galaxies of grief,
Like diamonds clear and clean.
You tried to spit them out,
Exhaled then breathed them in—
You’re precious, weak and thin,
And you’re an empty building then.

Like your body when you’re dead.

Whoever just reblogged this from me, thank you for reminding me how goddamn good this album was. Holy shit.
