Title: Pick a Star on the Dark Horizon/Stay With Me, Nancy Drew
Mixer: Chiara (zephyrocity, zephyrian)
Notes: Two mixes for the price of one! The first (containing ten songs and one upbeat bonus) is about best friendship and love and the way that they can get tangled up; the second is a four-track follow-up EP containing pure, schmoopy, pop song silliness. Artists include Ingrid Michaelson, The Weepies, Vienna Teng, and... Taylor Swift?! Nancy Drew art belongs to the marvellous Kate Beaton. Comment if you take!
Not Your Year | The Weepies
Scattered shadows on a wall; you watch the long light fall.
Some impressions stay and some will fade.
Tattered shoes outside your door, clothes all on the floor -
Your life feels like the morning after all year long.
Don't Give Up (You Are Loved) | Josh Groban
Don't give up;
It's just the hurt that you hide.
When you're lost inside,
I, I will be there to find you.
Don't Be Shy | Cat Stevens
Don't be shy; just let your feelings roll on by.
Don't wear fear or nobody will know you're there.
Just lift your head, and let your feelings out instead.
Where I Stood | Missy Higgins
And I won't be far from where you are if ever you should call.
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all.
The Call | Regina Spektor
I'll come back
When you call me.
No need to say goodbye.
Just because every thing's changing
Doesn't mean it's never been this way before.
All you can do is try to know
Who your friends are as you head off to the war.
The Hat | Ingrid Michaelson
I should tell you that you were my first love.
And it's all right, and it's all right, and it's all right.
When Tomorrow Comes | Anna Ternheim
And you know that I'm going to be the one
Who'll be there
When you need someone to depend upon
When tomorrow comes.
Anna Rose | Vienna Teng
Anna Rose, it makes my heart smile
To know you give love so freely.
Anna Rose, it makes it worthwhile.
Your love makes me see things so clearly.
Happiness | The Weepies
Got a charger, no cell phone; I can't call out
Unless it's to cry your name out the open window
To a sky that looks right back
And says it's never seen rain.
Here Comes the Sun | The Beatles
Here comes the sun.
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right.
Bonus! You're My Best Friend | Queen
Ooh, you're the best friend that I ever had.
I've been with you such a long time.
You're my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true:
I really love you.
Oh, you're my best friend.
Crush | David Archuleta
Do you ever think
When you're all alone
All that we could be?
Where this thing could go?
You Belong With Me | Taylor Swift
Walking the streets
With you and your worn out jeans,
I can't help thinking,
'This is how it ought to be.'
Laughing on a park bench,
Thinking to myself
'Hey, isn't this easy?'
Because I Love Her | The Swan Princess
Because I love her;
I need her;
Like earth needs the sun,
I need the one I love!
Teenage Dream | Glee Cast
You think I'm
Without any makeup on;
You think I'm funny
When I tell the punchline wrong.
I know you get me
So I let my walls come down, down.
