UH OH SISTERS! WE'RE GETTING GENERIC

Sorry for getting just super fucking basic here for no good reason. Music is something that means a lot to me, and lyrics are a big part of what makes it special to me - I'll be the first to admit that I know fuckall about music, but language is something I can latch onto. Unfortunately, that now means I am the worst kind of person: one with an entire webpage dedicated to lyrics they relate to. How completely and utterly fucking abhorrent of me.

Whatever, just make it quick.



Mom, would you wash my back
This once, and then we can forget
And I’ll leave what I’m chasing
For the other girls to pursue

Mom, am I still young?
Can I dream for a few months more?

- Class of 2013, Mitski


Nobody likes you!
Everyone left you!
They're all out without you
Having fun!

- Letterbomb, Green Day


I love everybody
Because I love you
When you stood up
Walked away, barefoot
And the grass where you lay
Left a bed in your shape
I looked over it
And I ached

- Strawberry Blond, Mitski


Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me...

- Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl, Broken Social Scene


With the windows down
I am driving to a red suburban house
Round ocean floating on a memory
Of a time when life was green
Reality is just a dream
I want to build your sunshine
And operate your breathing
Electric, electric

- Electric Car, Mars Argo


And you can tell
From the full-body cast
That you're sorry that you asked
Though you did everything you could
(Like any decent person would)
But I might be catching so don't touch
You'll start believeing you're immune to gravity and stuff
Don't get me wet
Because the bandages will all come off

- Girl Anachronism, The Dresden Dolls


I need somebody to remember my name
After all that I can do for them is done
I need someone to remember me

- Remember My Name, Mitski
