1. Between Sheets (Imogen Heap)
Oh, and the morning on the your skin and loved up light, tracing patterns in the maze of your back, softly, softly the goose bumps like that, and then a kiss… maybe another, and another one.
2. When the Day is Short (Martha Wainwright)
No more sober words of love, no more walks in the park side, no more sweet & shy touches, yeah, we’re just lovers in the dark. Feel nothing, leave no mark, but it was fun when we saw sparks. When the day is short and the nights are long it’s a different world where the rules are wrong.
3. Sun Giant (Fleet Foxes)
What a life I lead in the summer, what a life I lead in the spring, what a life I lead when the wind, it breathes, what a life I lead in the spring.
4. Stinging Velvet (Neko Case)
Cold and shivering, cold and shivering, old and shivering warm. Sing please, rock me to sleep, quiet as a canyon up under heaven’s eaves I surrender, surrender.
5. With the Light (Julia Stone)
Open the window, they’re not free, open the window, they’re not free at all. Open the window, they can’t see, open the window, they can’t see at all. With the light, they will find, with the light, they will find.
6. Postures Bent (Laura Gibson)
All the leaders, seasons change, burning in our cartons, singing stories in our ears, pulling, pulling at our wills.
7. Psalm (M. Ward)
8. Kiss Kiss (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
Now move I’m gonna come dry, I dropped my musings out of sight, I drank until the waters dried, it’s all cute ’til someone dies. Shoot my name up every vein, you can’t get hurt, you can’t complain, no feet, no hands, no tail, no lies, he’s got youth on his side.
9. Explosions (Ellie Goulding)
You left my soul bleeding in the dark so you could be king, the rules you set are still untold to me and I lost my faith in everything. The nights you could cope, your intentions were gold, but the mountains will shake.
10. Sadseasong (A Fine Frenzy)
Life without a witness is a lonely business. No one here to rise with, none to lie with. Wish it were a bad dream, sad sea, sad dream. Wish I could awake.
11. Odalisque (The Decemberists)
They’ve come to find you, Odalisque, as the light dies horribly. On a fire escape you walk, all rare and resolved to drop. And when they find you, Odalisque, they will rend you, terribly, stitch from stitch ’til all your linen limbs will fall.
