Talking Shit About A Pretty Sunset ; Modest Mouse

Oh noose tied myself in, tied myself too tight 
Looking kind of anxious in your cross armed stance 
Like a bad tempered prom queen at a homecoming dance 
And I claim I’m not excited with my life any more 
So I blame this town, this job, these friends 
The truth is it’s myself 
And I’m trying to understand myself 
And pinpoint where I am 
By the time I get things figured out 
I’ve change the whole damn plan 
Oh noose tied myself in, tied myself too tight 
Talking shit about a pretty sunset 
Blanketing opinions that I’ll probably reget soon 
I’ve changed my mind so much I can’t even trust it 
My mind changed me so much I can’t even trust myself

Day 09

A song that makes you hopeful. 

Have A Little Faith In Me; John Haitt 

i’m not exactly sure why i chose this particular song for a song that makes me “hopeful.” i will say that for some reason this song makes me feel hopeful for love, that there is love somewhere out there for every one you just gotta have a little faith. 

“Goodbye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart is the memory and there you will always be.”

You will be dearly missed San Francisco. As per usual, I am home now ever inspired by my visit with you! (at San Francisco, California)


“If only for a second" 

Such an outstanding video! The concept is beyond brilliant & I love it all.

Prepare for the water works…
