townes van zandt- if i needed you

'if i needed you, would you come to me? would you come to me, to ease my pain? if you needed me, i would come to you, i would swim the seas for to ease your pain.'

that may be the most beautiful thing ever written.

the sky is sometimes blue, sometimes clouded. the ground is often hard. love is somewhere in the mix. blah.

elvis costello- the next time round

'sometimes i name and number all the things you gave to me
your elastic love, this velvet lined purgatory
you used to take the breath out of me
now i think you'll be the death of me'

nobody says it better than costello.

babyshambles- loyalty song

pete dohety is kinda like shane macgowan in that they are both renegades with a strong moral code. i respect that. nobody has any loyalty these days, so it's ok to fuck each other over. pre-emptive strikes! it's the legacy of bush, inserted into our private lives. every man(wo) for themselves. and, like the u.s., we end up fucked. on the road to fuck knows where.
