My Brain is Mostly Song Lyrics

MIXTAPE || my addiction

July 12, 2016 | 5 comments


I was listening to Joni Mitchell (specifically, A Case of You) and I couldn’t get the lyrics “I can drink a case of you darling, still I’d be on my feet” out of my head. I just had to make a mixtape. Not a mixed tape or a playlist. A mixtape. Then I remembered that I don’t actually have a tape recorder, or a cassette tape, but if I did, this is how my mixtape would have turned out.


A Case of You – Joni Mitchell
I can drink a case of you darling, still I’d be on my feet.

Breath of Life – Florence + The Machine
But I only needed one more touch, another taste of divine rush.

Little Too Much – Natasha Bedingfield
Everybody hurts just a little too much, everybody hurts but it’s never enough. It’s wonderful to fall, it’s worth of risking all.

Sex and Reruns – Matt Duke
Block out all your demons with white noise, pills, and Jesus.

Dark Side – Kelly Clarkson
There’s a place that I know, it’s not pretty there and few have ever gone.

Demons – Imagine Dragons
When you feel my heat, look into my eyes. It’s where my demons hide, it’s where my demons hide. Don’t get too close, it’s dark inside. It’s where my demons hide, it’s where my demons hide.

My Silver Lining – First Aid Kit
I don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow.

Barely Breathing – Duncan Shriek
‘Cause I am barely breathing and I can’t find the air. I don’t know who I’m kidding, imagining you care. And I could stand here waiting, a fool for another day. But I don’t suppose it’s worth the price, worth the price, the price that I would pay.

In Too Deep – Genesis
Asking all kinds of questions, to myself, but never finding the answers. Crying at the top of my voice, and no one listening … Although I need you, I’m not gonna make this. You know I want to, but I’m in too deep.

Shake It Out – Florence + The Machine
It’s always darkest before the dawn.

Colors – Laleh
Just because it’s black in the dark, doesn’t mean there’s no colors.

Just Like a Pill – Pink
I can’t stay on your life support, there’s a shortage in the switch. I can’t stay on your morphine, ’cause it’s making me itch … I think I’ll get outta here, where I can run just as fast as I can to the middle of nowhere, to the middle of my frustrated fears. And I swear you’re just like a pill. Instead of makin’ me better, you keep makin’ me ill.

Moodswings – Charlotte Church
I try to walk away from situations that run into complications that make me lose control.

Against the Voices – Switchfoot
Everybody knows that the hardest war to fight is the fight to be yourself, when the voices try to turn you into someone else.
