Music Monday: “If I Die” by Something Corporate

“If I Die” by Something Corporate

may have a slight obsession with Something Corporate. Side note: I was AT this concert. When I was 15 years old. 12 years ago. OMG

A train crashed
And everything slows down
I was wishing I could get out of this town
These dreams we’ve had
Have never made you cry
And I am not a twinkle in your eye
But I’ve got to get out of here
Cuz you drive me up the wall
I’ve got to get out of here
Cuz I can’t stand to fall

And If I die
see you won’t be so close to me
And I won’t be the one
Who sticks around
If I’m awake
see you won’t go to sleep, viagra sale I promise
And I won’t be the one
Who lets you down

Tailgates, long talks
And your superficial friends
Shiny, silver Fords
That lead us to dead ends
And I said do you lick these salty wounds
That you, yourself condone
I sit, wait, and I’m all alone
But I can’t go home
‘Cause you’re my home

If I die
see you won’t be so close to me
And I won’t be the one
Who sticks around
If I’m awake
see you won’t go to sleep, I promise
And I won’t be the one
Who lets you down
No, I won’t let you down
No, I won’t let you down

Tell me where you are tonight
And is everything alright?
Do you remember what I said,
While he’s sleeping in your bed?
tell me now you Smile hard
cuz i don’t smile much so far
And is he everything you need?
Is he everything I couldn’t be?
Does he make everything match better?
Bring you all the shiny weather that you want
And is he everything
everything I’m not

And If I die
You won’t be so close to me
And I won’t be the one
Who sticks around
If I’m awake
see you won’t go to sleep, I promise
And I won’t be the one
Who lets you down
no, I won’t let you down
no, I won’t let you down
I won’t let you down
I won’t let you down

Music Monday: “Hurricane” by Something Corporate

“Hurricane” by Something Corporate

Shake down you make me break
For goodness sake
I think I’m on the edge
Of something new with you
Shout out don’t drown the sound
I’ll drown you out
You’ll never scream so loud
As I want to scream with you

Standing there with your smile blinding
Your eyes from seeing
My face as I’m dying

To figure out a girl

But she drifts so far away
I’m on her coast
So maybe I should stay
And map around your world

So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me into your hurricane
Into your hurricane

Stand up don’t make a sound
Your ears might bleed
There are sweet fluorescent enemies
That live inside of me
The world moves faster than I knew
Not fast enough to not creep up on you
And the space we put between
So pull me under your weather patterns
Your cold fronts and the rain don’t matter
Because the sun burns what I needed

[Chorus]
So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled you into the hurricane
Into the hurricane

You don’t do it on purpose
But you make me shake
Now I count the hours ’til you wake
With your babies breath
Breathe symphonies
Come on sweet catastrophe

Well, more about maybe this time I can follow through
I can feel complete
Stop paying dues
Stop the rain from falling
Keep my ocean calm
This time I know nothing’s wrong

[Chorus]
So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me in and no,
You don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me into your hurricane
Into your hurricane
Into your hurricane

Music Monday: “Forget December” by Something Corporate

“Forget December” by Something Corporate 

 

On Christmas morning, this web outside was pouring
All was hopeless in this home
And no one’s speaking, pill no one creeping
to see if she was on the phone
And you were quiet, find this routine riot
was all but practical to me
and if we see it, why can’t we beat it
can we let each other be?

Forget December, it won’t be better
Than I remember it before
and this month only, will be so lonely
and not so holy anymore

New Years Eve came, but nothing had changed
all the problems just got worse
we sat in silence
no routine science could heal the sickness we rehearse
and if I’m talking, my words are mocking
the deaf ears they have fallen on
These words are tainted with years of jaded
Innocence that’s all but gone

Forget December, it won’t be better
than I remember it before
and this month only, will be so lonely
and not so holy anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore
Forget December, it won’t be better
than I remember it before
this month only will be so lonely
and not so holy anymore
Forget December it won’t bet better
than I rememebr it before
a silent night won’t feel quite right
It’s not so silent anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore

On Christmas morning, outside was pouring
all was hopeless in this home

Spring Break!! And WonderCon!

It’s finally Spring Break!

I feel like I have been in school for ages. And okay, for sale it’s only been two months but I could really use this break. I’ve exams galore and papers and bleh. But it feels good now that I know I won’t have to go back to school until April 1st. Now if only this gloomy yucky weather would clear up and the beautiful California sun would come back out, nurse we would be super good!

But Spring Break I’d going to be awesome. I have a lot of things planned, or so it seems and it works out beautifully for me. My boyfriend has a different spring break than me (lame) so at least I can keep myself busy!

Tomorrow I’m heading out to an Andrew McMahon concert. Andrew was the frontman of my absolute favorite band, Something Corporate, and one of my other faves, Jack’s Mannequin. I saw him last during the Something Corporate reunion tour nearly three years ago so I’m very very excited about it. AND I don’t have to drive out to LA for it either, which is a win!

Then Friday is my epic day with Cassandra Clare! I’m going to her meet and greet event, where I get to interview her! I’m excited to meet her again and to fan girl with my sister and my fellow Shadowhunter friend and all around nerd, Jackie. And I’ll have a special surprise for all of you Cassandra Clare fan out there so keep an eye out for that!

Next week I still have to work but I love my job so that’s not even a problem. But in my spare time, I’ll be working on my outfits and such for WonderCon! Friday, I’m planning on going all Ravenclaw and Saturday I’m planning on being a Shadowhunter!

Saturday they’re having the City of Bones panel and they just announced that there will be autograph signings with Cassandra, Lily Collins (Clary Fray), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace Wayland) and Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood).

Sunday, I’m trying to see if I can make a whatanerdgirlsays shirt to advertise my blog for the day. I think it’s a good idea!

So come on by and see me during the con! Ill be at the Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army table on Friday and you can tweet at me (@anerdgirlsays) and I’d be happy to hang out!

Oh and I got super cool calling cards for the blog and I can’t wait to hand them out!

It’s gonna be great!
