100indecisions: my chains are broken (mae)
When I posted that incredibly long list of D.C. songs, I forgot the one CD I listened to the most: one I'd burned, mostly of songs [livejournal.com profile] timetakestime sent me. I'm listening to it now, and it's reminding me that nearly all of those songs fit too.

Between the motion and the act falls the Shadow )

100indecisions: my chains are broken (horntail)
I'm listening to Mindy Smith's One Moment More right now, and when it came to "Train Song," I was positive I'd heard her use the s-word. So I looked it up, and I was right. Why in Arda didn't I notice this before? And more importantly--WHY DID SHE HAVE TO SAY THAT? THERE WAS NO REASON! *rampage* Bother it. Now I'll never want to listen to this CD, and there's a lot of other good stuff on there. This is why I never impulse-buy CDs, ever, unless they're Christian and I trust them. (It's also why I wish so much the store in my business plan were a reality. Bah.)

Also, my arms both ache for no discernible reason. It's almost like I've got the flu, except it's only in my arms. Must have slept on them funny or something. I do remember lying in a weird position this morning, but I didn't think I'd actually fallen asleep that way. On the other hand, I didn't get to sleep before 2 a.m. last night, thanks to work, so I know I was tired. *meh*

And everything...feels strange. It's home, and it feels like home, but at the same time it doesn't feel like home anymore.

The whole fact that I'm still sickish and didn't sleep enough last night, and have now spent over an hour on here doing nothing, having drunk almost nothing and eaten less, doesn't help. I now have a headache from sleeplessness and dehydration. I really, really don't want to go to work, and when I put in The Everglow just now to cheer myself up a bit, I realized it hasn't been played in so long that it now reminds me of last summer. And summers now seem to be very uncomfortable times for me. I really wish music didn't make these associations like this--a song reminding me of something is fine, but not when it brings this vague, undefinable uneasiness with it. I'm just kind of...screwed up right now, which I expected, but yeah.

Like Churchill, though, I can sort of say that I have a song for every period in my life. This trip certainly accumulated a lot of them.

I didn't listen to a lot of music on the D.C. trip, but a lot of what I heard seemed to apply oddly well to one part of it or another )

Going to have breakfast and attempt to accomplish something now.

*snerk!*

I heard this song on the overhead at work yesterday. It made me think of Harmonians, and all other shippers of non-canon pairings, and amused me muchly; so I just had to post it.

I know you think that I shouldn't still love you
Or tell you that
But if I didn't say it
Well, I'd still have felt it
Where's the sense in that?

But I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say
To let You know how much You’ve touched my life
Because here is where You’re finding me
In the exact same place as New Year’s eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We’re less than half as close as I want to be


And the first time that You opened Your eyes
Did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever
And the first time that You opened Your eyes
Did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I’ll compare
The things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And the first time that You opened Your eyes
Did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever
And the first time that You opened Your eyes
Did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life

Pray for You to save my life
Pray for You to save my life
--"I Celebrate the Day," Relient K

Okay, so this song doesn't quite have its theological head on straight, and I personally don't believe in world peace...but I've heard it on the radio and it's lovely. *drools over the piano*

And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just the chance that maybe we'll find better days
Cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And designer love and empty things
Just the chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words and sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again

I need someplace simple where we can live
And something only you can give
And that's faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor Child who saved this world
And there's ten million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words and sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just the chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words and sing out loud
Cause everyone is forgiven now
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again
Cause tonight's the night the world begins again
--"Better Days," Goo Goo Dolls
