So it's been a while. I'm still here.

Hard, as of late, to get into the groove of writing about my life. So. Let's do a music meme.

Put your music player (iTunes, WinAmp, Windows Media Player, etc.) on Shuffle or Random mode, press Play, and list your favorite line or verse from the first 10 songs that it plays. Then get your friends to guess the artist and song title of each lyric. Fun! (You can skip instrumental-only songs, but no skipping of the embarrassing songs!)

Okay. I will. You guys gotta guess, okay?

1. I want all the self-conscious girls who try to hide who they are with make-up. (How sad that this it the first one that came up, it's an okay song, not at all deep. That's my favorite line by default.)

2. I'm running out of reasons for sharing and sometimes I can't think of one.

3. I had opinions that didn't matter, I had a brain that felt like pancake batter.

4. You were my only weakness for years and years and years.
(These last two really show more about how Zack has influenced my music choices more than anything else. Specifically, I put the songs of his I kinda liked on my iPod so that I would grow more comfortable with them, and then he'd hear me listening to them and say things like "I didn't know you liked this song.")

5. I'm too proud to beg for your attention and your friendship and your time, so you can come and get it from now on.

6. I promise I won't squander your gaze.

7. I'll follow you in, I know you can't swim when you've been dead a hundred years.

8. She's in love with the world, but sometimes these feelings can be so misleading.

9. So if I capsize in your thigh's high tide, B-5, you sunk my battleship.

10. I wish that I could cry, fall down on my knees, find a way to lie, 'bout a home I'll never see.

I kinda find it impressive how many of those songs weren't emo. Not my favorites, though. Too bad. Because if there's anything this blog, and the world at large really, is lacking, it's insight to the emotional junk drawer that is my head.

On with it.
