Title: An Alien Heartbeat
Mixer: Chiara (zephyrocity, zephyrian)
Notes: A seven-track EP, twenty-six minutes long counting an eighth bonus track. The fifth and last of my sunflower-themed mixes, all of which can be found here. Includes the usual suspects: Ani DiFranco, Damien Rice, Rosie Thomas, and others. It's about coming home. Do comment if you take!
How To Return Home | Kerrigan & Lowdermilk
Your bare feet sliding on the old wooden floorboards,
Home just as you left it but still you’re shaken.
Like walking into a museum somehow out of time.
It’s all the same except the girl in the hallway,
Where she’s been and who she will ripen into,
Your childhood’s on the other side of a sprawling divide… too wide.
Cannonball | Damien Rice
There’s still a little bit of your song in my ear;
There’s still a little bit of your words I long to hear.
You step a little closer to me,
So close that I can't see what's going on.
Since You've Been Around | Rosie Thomas
I just can't seem to find solid ground
Since you've been around.
The Fire | Imogen Heap
Your Song | Ellie Goulding
It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside.
I'm not one of those who can easily hide.
And you can tell everybody this is your song.
It may be quite simple, but now that it's done,
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you're in the world.
Falling Is Like This | Ani DiFranco
You give me that look that's like laughing with liquid in your mouth,
Like you're choosing between choking and spitting it all out,
Like you're trying to fight gravity on a planet that insists
That love is like falling, and falling is like this.
All The Way To New York City | Rosie Thomas
I wish I could take you with me
All the way to New York City
And we can get an apartment there.
You could write for picture shows
And I could get a job
Waiting tables at a restaurant
Where famous people like to go.
Bonus! What Do I Need With Love? | Thoroughly Modern Millie
Come and go the way I choose,
Never gonna sing the tied-down blues.
Other guys would kill to fill my shoes:
No wing-clipped sappy.
What do I need with love?
I got it good,
Got it good -
But now I got it bad!
