Hi, everyone! So, there’s a new year coming up! I would like to show you guys some blogs y'all should definitely follow. There is a ton of them but those are the ones I remind at the moment. I haven’t talked to all of them but their blogs are great, therefore I believe they are amazing people. I’m making a ‘follow forever’ post, though I’m pretty sure I forgot about some people. Please, don’t feel offended if you’re not here!

my attempt for the lyrics of "Mad Sounds"

mad sounds

in your ears

make you feel alright 

they bring you back to life

mad sounds in your ears

they make you get up and dance

they make you get up


make you forget

love buckles and destroys

becomes wild in our hands

run, bet you can, and hide

mad sounds 

in your ears 

make you get up and dance

make you get up

all night


make you get up and dance

 they’ll make you get

so before you’ve got into what you got into

will you just wont feel it how it wanted to

you sit and try sometime that you just cant figure out

what went wrong

and out of nowhere somebody comes and hits you with an 

‘ooooh la lala’

ooh la lala, ooh la lala ooooooh.

you got mad sounds in your ears

to make you get up and dance

mad sounds

in your ears

make you get up and dance

why dont it make you get up


tried as much as possible, giving that it is a live recording. 

quite possibly the only right words in here are 'mad sounds’

Holly saved me few times in there btw.
