Soarin' Through Angsty Haze, Good Lorde

I feel like I just sipped up part of the atmosphere and now I'm all gassy in the head.

Now that I think about it, Lorde's music sounds quite...high.  There's a very slow and hazy quality to most of her tracks.



Call all the ladies out
They’re in their finery
A hundred jewels on throats
A hundred jewels between teeth
Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother, while he glows through the room.

♩ Grand larceny, you stole my damn heart from me.

Dylan Owen is a golden find.  When I listen to this track, I can see sunshine pouring through half shut blinds in a shaded room and I feel a little warm inside, even though it's the sound of a dying beat from a heartbreak.

“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.”
-Mark Twain


Maybe all I need 
Is the view from the window seat staring back at me
Staring back at me.

♩ I'm sorry that we got that close, but this is not the scenic route home.

I feel nostalgic and wistful now.



And this is not the scenic route 
Close your eyes and let me show you what I dream about 
We fell asleep up on the ride home 
To the raindrops and stereo and my phone buzzing 
But I had never heard a sweeter sound 
Than all your cluttered thoughts slowly almost leaking out 
Like we could do this with our eyes closed 
 As I listen to you try to hit the high notes

...

Take my weathered hands
And feel me reaching out
As if the heavier life is gonna even out.

Beauty in imperfection.

A gorgeous, racing wreck with soul.


Everything seems like a city of dreams,
I never know why,
But I still miss you.

There she's standing in a field of lights,
I close my eyes,
And I still miss you.
