‘The Chain (Live From Webster Hall)’ by Ingrid Michaelson
The sky looks pissed; the wind talks back. My bones are shifting in my skin, and you, my love, are gone.
‘Please Don’t Tell Her’ by Jason Mraz
Because I’m crazy like the rest of us, but I’m crazier when I’m next to her.
‘How to Be a Heartbreaker’ by Marina & the Diamonds
At least I think I do
‘Headlights On The Highway’ by Ron Pope
And I don’t need no secrets, I give up on lies. If it’s gonna rain, I’d rather know then be caught blind.
‘When I Was Your Man’ by Bruno Mars
CAN’T GET THIS SONG OUT OF MY HEAD
‘Valerie’ by Amy Winehouse
dancing in my underwear with my best friend while eating tetrazini
I want it loud
like Times Square on New Years
when there are so many people I can’t even hear
I want it quiet
like ruffling sheets and
lukewarm cups of coffee and
Sunday afternoon light streaming in the window.
I want it colorful
like Christmas lights shining on your face,
sitting next to
I want it dark
like panic attacks and
broken plates and
just breathing in,
I want it clean,
like fucking khakis and
rolling my eyes at you over game night at my parents’ house
I want it dirty
like rucked up skirts and
soaked panties and wet, slick and
no time for the bed so the kitchen tile will have to do.
I want it big and vast
like holding your hands as we finally see the sunrise
and the entire world waking up
I want it small
like our pinkies linked over the gearshift with only two hours until
but I feel like I’m already there.
