High Fidelity, Mix 4

If the theme isn’t screaming at you, then you need some serious sleep.

Thousand Mile Wishes

Leaving On A Jet Plane – Chantal Kreviazuk

“So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go.”

Pavlov’s Bell – Aimee Mann
“Hold my hand at take-off
Tell me what I already know…
Oh Mario, we’re only too high, oh
It’s kinda getting harder to breathe…”

This Year’s Love – David Gray

“It takes something more this time
Than sweet sweet life
Before I open my arms and fall
Losing all control…
Sweep me off my feet
Singing, ‘ain’t this life so sweet?’
This year’s loving better last….”

Galapagos – Smashing Pumpkins
“Hold me for goodbyes
And whispered lullabyes…
I won’t deny the pain
I won’t deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you,
would you leave me too?”

One Line – PJ Harvey

“Do you remember the first kiss?
Stars shooting across the sky…
And I draw a line to your heart today
To your heart from mine
One line to keep us safe.”

In The Aeroplane Over The Sea – Neutral Milk Hotel
“And one day we will die and
our ashes will fly
From the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see love to be….”

Tallymarks – Thao Nguyen
“Love isn’t why we leave…
I drop drop tears like tallymarks
And it builds like snow, and it keeps up apart
And I drop drop tears like tallymarks
I’m keeping score, so I keep us apart
But I think I might miss you enough to say so
And I think I already did…”

Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels) – The Arcade Fire
“I’ll dig a tunnel from my window to yours…
We tried to name our babies,
But we forget all the names that
The names we used to know
And our skin gets thicker
From living out in the snow….”

Dogs – Moist
“Packed a lunch of tea and orange
Think I’ll take it for a ride
‘Cross the world to California
Where I know she’s waiting…”

Your Cloud – Tori Amos
“If there is a horizontal line
That runs from the map of your body
Straight through the land, shooting up
Right through my heart
Will this horizontal line
When asked, know how to find
Where you end
Where I begin?”

Broken – Seether ft. Amy Lee
“I keep your photograph
And I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain
Because I’m broken
When I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away….”

Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd
“How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl
Year after year….”

Make It Home – Juliana Hatfield
“Make it, make your way home
Better than the last…
Open the window, let in the snow
Cold is all that I know”

Walk On – U2
“If the darkness is to keep us apart
And if they daylight feels like it’s a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back,
Oh no, be strong,
Oh, walk on…”

Drops Of Jupiter – Train
“Can you imagine your first dance
Freeze-dried romance
Five hour phone conversations?…
Tell me, did you sail across the sun?”

Summer Skin – Death Cab For Cutie
“Squeaky swings and the tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water’s warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin
I don’t recall a single care
Just greenery and human hair
Then labour day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin….”

Thousand Mile Wish – Finger Eleven
“You’re the story that I know and fell through
I’m so far into your story I don’t know why
We think we’re in control
When we lie between the lines
We’ll find a line to follow….
Maybe stars know why we fall
I just wish they were thinking out loud
Oh I could wish all night.”
