Song of the Day: 10/08/2009

The Decemberists have a new album out.  I’m not a weirdo obsessed fan.  I’m a very casual fan, actually.  Not too into them.  But, they are from Portland and they are pretty indie-rific.  I’ve heard whispers of this being a big ole let down album.  But, since I am not a slave to their discography I’m actually kind of a fan. Speaking of December… my birthday (29th), my dad’s birthday (also 29th…along with Jude Law and Kate Moening, meow) and my new niece’s birthday (the 25th) will be in December!  YAY! Oh, and yes, the most important birthday off all, December 5!  My Chicago friend Rachel, by way of by way of overseas, by way of Oklahoma, by way of St. Louis, by way of New York, etc. The list goes on.  I think she still lives on Earth.  Hi Rachel!  😛

Here is “The Wanting Comes in Waves/ Repaid.  Enjoy kittens.

Mother I can hear your foot-fall now
Soft disturbance in the dead-fall how
It proceeds you like a black smoke pall
Still the wanting comes in waves
And you delivered me from danger then
Pulled my cradle from the reedy glen
Swore to save me from the world of men

Still the wanting comes in waves
In waves
And waves
And the wanting comes in waves
And the wanting comes in waves

And I want this night
And I want this night
Oh

Shara:

How I made you
I wrought you, I pulled you
From war I labored you
From cancer I cradled you
And now

This is how I am repaid
This is how I am repaid

Remember when I found you
The miseries that hounded you
And I gave you motion
Anointed with lotions
And now

This is how I am repaid
This is how I am repaid

Colin:

Mother hear this proposition right
Grant me freedom to enjoy this night
And I’ll return to you at break of light
For the wanting comes in waves
And waves
And waves
Still the wanting comes in waves
Still the wanting comes in waves
Still the wanting comes in waves
And you owe me life
And you owe me life

Shara:

And if I grant you this favor to hand you
Your life for the evening
I will retake by morning
And so
Consider it your debt repaid
Consider it your debt repaid
Repaid
Repaid

Lost inside her mind. Inspired to blog because if not the thoughts start to control my life. I needed an outlet.
