So much is changing
This hectic mash of good and bad, success and failure
I just wanted you to be the one thing I could count on
The constant in my life
The one I could rely on no matter how terrifying things got
Some day we’ll be good
Some day we’ll forgive each other for everything
Til then I’m ok walking alone
We both know I’m not good at waiting
But for you I’ll manage
She wanted to lay in his arms. She wanted to sneak in through his moms kitchen window, tip toe down those creaky stairs and lay next to him. She wanted to rub his belly and say that she loved him. She wanted to mean it again, be able to say “I love you” and deep down know it was true.
But she couldn’t. That was two years ago, when things were different.
It’s not that she wanted to be with him now. she knew they were in the past. She wanted to live in that past though. She wanted to be 20 years old forever, she wanted that feeling back, that light.
But she was 24 now.
Sitting in an apartment 800 miles away from home. Not knowing if or when she would go back.
Things felt like a dream for her nowadays. The lines were blurred, it was becoming harder to breathe. As long as she has a slight grip on reality she’ll be fine. As long as she doesn’t let go.
The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s 4th album “Mosquito” came out on Tuesday and I finally had a chance to sit down and listen to the whole thing.
Yeah Yeah Yeah’s are an indie rock group that formed in New York back in 2000. I’ve been listening to them since 2005 and I’ve been impressed with how consistently good their music has been over the years.
They started working on this album in December of 2011. The single “Sacrilege” is amazing and is tinged with religious undertones.
In an interview Karen O stated this album is their version of a soul record and I agree. It’s smoky and sultry but also rock and roll.
I really liked “Subway” (it reminded me of NY), “Buried Alive” and “Wedding Song”. “Wedding Song” was a beautiful end to the album, it’s romantic and softer side of Karen O.
“Mosquito” is everything I love about the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s. If you’re a fan of music in general, no matter what genre their is a song on this album you’ll enjoy.
