25 Songs, 25 Days – Day 5

December 7, 2012

I know, I know, I’m late.  No huge surprise to any of you that know me.  And if you don’t know me, I’ll tell you:  It’s no huge surprise.

25songs

Anyway, onto songs that get stuck in our heads.  I mean, I could use any number of songs.  Call Me Maybe is always especially sticky.  Lana Del Rey stays with me whenever I see the couple commercials that are using her songs.  Crushcrushcrush channels my teen angst and latches on pretty often.  About a year and a half ago, Keane’s Spiraling was firmly planted in my brain for months.  If you know children’s songs, I find Mr. Sun to be very tenacious.  Six or eight months ago it was Young the Giant and Foster the People.  I don’t think I can say that one song comes back over and over as time goes on, at least I can’ t think of one right now that does.

But the song that sticks with me lately is one that find myself emotionally connected to.  If you follow me on Plurk, I’ve spammed you with it over the last couple months.  It speaks strongly enough to me that I end up with tears in my eyes every time I hear it.

Day 5: A song that is often stuck in your head
ZZ Ward – Last Love Song

We were never the marrying type, oh no,
We won’t buy dishes or stained glass lights, oh no,
For a table we’ll never sit at,
In the house that we won’t ever get,

I won’t wake up and pick out your tie, oh no,
You won’t come home and kiss me at night, oh no,
We won’t lie in this king bed for two,
Say goodbye to us saying “I dos,”

No more white picket fences,
No more lace veils or vows,
No more “You’re the only one” ’cause that’s all done with now,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you,

Take these roses and this Jameson, oh no,
Find a subway that I can sit in, oh no,
Buy a one-way out of this city,
Everything that I need, got it with me,

No more white picket fences,
No more lace veils or vows,
No more “You’re the only one” ’cause that’s all done with now,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you,

All these notes and all these words,
Are all that’s left in me,
Bend these pages, count my woes,
One last song to set me free,

No more white picket fences,
No more lace veils or vows,
No more “You’re the only one” ’cause that’s all done with now,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you,
This is the last love song I’ll ever write for you, oh.
