There will also probably be fic today.
(Oh, and re. the mix, the lyrics are skewing foreboding here because I've been given a few tonal spoilers and also because HI, IT'S ASOIAF, NO ONE is going to come out of this story well. So that's a thing here. Shh, though. Don't specify how I'm right.)
It was the height I grew
The weight, the shell was crushing you
I've been around a few
Tell me what you saw
I'll tell you what, too
Gold lion's going to tell me where the light is
Take our hands out of control
jezebel • iron & wine
Who's seen Jezebel?
She was born to be the woman I would know
And hold like a breeze half as tight as both eyes closed...
She was born to be the woman we could blame
Make me a beast half as brave and be the same...
She was gone before I ever got to say
"Lay here, my love, you're the only shape I pray to, Jezebel"
the forest • mirah
never gave a thought to the coming of the winter storm
gone away, gone away, what was yesterday
make a meal, make a bed, tuck your feet in
and resting elbows twice on a table can be nice
but the comforts they can be deceiving
the seasons are not what they once seemed
The country I was born in it created me compelled
But all reason is retrospective, love, I just rebel
Hang heaven, we can build a better war for us in hell
And I'll meet you at the border in the morning
the sword and the pen • regina spektor
For those who still can recall
The desperate colors of fall
The sweet caresses of May
Only in poems remain
No one recites them these days
this love (will be your downfall) • ellie goulding
Who are we to be emotional?
Who are we to play with hearts and throw away it all?
Oh, who are we to turn each other's heads?
Who are we to find ourselves in other people's beds?

I know you have to go,
but I want to keep you to myself,
like a dream, I can tell
you'll never be all mine
here was a black swan outside the palace
it was appointed by the king
and people took it as a sign that he needed more time
but you said "I ain't afraid of no black bird!"
there was a rumor of a ghost in the bedroom,
hanging in and around the bed
but by the time the moon rose, you had taken off your clothes
and had the pillow under your head
my heart is a kingdom
where the king is a heart
and my heart is king...
the king of hearts
rise to me • the decemberists
My darling, my sweetheart,
I am in your sway
To cold climes, come springtime
So let me hear you say,
My love I am gonna stand my ground
He could fall and she could weep
But as holy are her feet and hard with mention
But dear they may not speak
We fell tight when there is tension and their eyes could make us weak
And his heart was full of fire at the man he had become
And his soul was seldom higher with the falsities of fun
He could embrace sweet desire as in moments as they pass
But he feared it ever more, when he saw it didn't last
good arms vs. bad arms • frightened rabbit
good arms, versus bad arms, will win hands down
they are built to hold and fit
look how far they go around
eave the rest at arm's length
keep your naked flesh under your favorite dress
and leave the rest at arm's length
when they reach out, don't touch them, don't touch them
Can you lie next to her and give her your heart
As well as your body, and can you lie next to her and confess your love
As well as your folly and can you kneel before the king and say ‘I’m clean’?
But tell me now where was my fault, in loving you with my whole heart
cold girl fever • the national
Bottle eyes, glassy blue
I watch the rain come out of you
Sky is white with the flu
I'm terrified of losing you
If I go to the sea, I'll bring you down, down with me
If I go to the rain, you'll never see me again
Blows rain upon the one you loved
And though you were only sparring
There's blood on the eye, unlace the glove
Say, honey, I am not sorry
Stand here and name the one you loved
Beneath the drifting ashes
And in naming, rise above time
As it, flashing, passes
(ugh how great is this spring going to be, seriously.)
