Neutral Milk Hotel | Holland, 1945 | In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
"How far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps?
How often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short?
Why do you find the unavailable so alluring?
Where did it begin? what went wrong? And who made you feel so worthless?
If they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?
All this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin?
And what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it?
How are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?
Where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?
Where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?"

You are the reason I’m smiling when there is nothing to smile about.
"Your body is the house you grew up in, how dare you try to burn it to the ground."
Kevin Devine | Longer That I’m Out Here
And you say that there’s someone
That you need to reconnect with
Some scarecrow from highschool
That you loved and never slept with
A baby with a pipedream
Playing hopscotch on your bandages
And I’m singing all these songs
While I sleep on your couch
I’m coughing up a lung
But I’m covering my mouth
And I paint you on the wall
Yellow, red, green, and brown
I miss you all the time
But I’m blocking it out

prove to me i’m not gonna die alone.
