Day 3 – Cold by Citizen Four

Well this is going well. hahaha see what I did there? Sorry.

I had a legitimate excuse (just so the “attendance office” of WordPress knows. Why do I do this?) though. Yesterday, I got Confirmed, which for any non-Catholic people: Confirmation is the final sacrament of initiation, and the Church now sees you as an adult. At Baptism your parents chose for you and now you get to choose for yourself etc. etc. It was nice – a lovely two-hour celebration – ruined, of course, by the fact that I still had to do my homework and go to bed late because of it afterwards. Ugh!

I mean, I’m not saying we shouldn’t have homework – homework is great practice, but 2-3 hours is enough. At some point I want to go outside or, you know, sleep the recommended 8 hours. I see kids outside and I’m think – what is it like? Having time to actually go outside and not have to think about anything and touch the grass? What do you even do outside? See! I’ve forgotten how to go outside. Thanks, school!

Anyway, let’s get to the actual point of this post. Many thanks to OY30 and TheLittleMagicGirl for the nominations!

Today I nominate Girl From Ghana.

Also, by the way, I’ll probably do this for more than the required 5 days.

Cold is Citizen Four’s debut single, even though they made (amazing) covers before it.

My favorite lyrics:

[Pre-Chorus: Carson]
It’s my soul that you’re taking
I’m high but I feel low
You’re the devil in disguise
I see the venom in your eyes
It’s my heart that you’re breaking
You’re a fire out of control
Gonna burn until you burn out
I can see it now

[Chorus: All]
And I’m holding, holding on
Holding, holding on
I’m holding on
With a body so hot
How’d you get so cold?
How’d you get so cold?

[Bridge: Conner]
She rolls, stone cold
Leaving me six feet under
She rolls, stone cold
Stone cold
She knows, she knows
She’s like the eighth world wonder
She rolls, stone cold
Stone cold

I bolded my favorite lyric. I know it’s about breakups and betrayal, but there’s love in it too.

If you’re interested, head over to YouTube for their covers. (It’ll be worth your time).

Day 3 – High by SIVIK

 

La dee da, no skipping here. *Whistles*

I like this because I feel like I’m helping my favorite artists out a bit.

Thanks for the nominations, OY30 and TheLittleMagicGirl.

It’s your turn today, SIVIK. This song is so amazing and every time I listen to it I just start (interpretive) dancing and mouthing or singing the word. I’ve listened to it about 100 times and I’m still not tired of it, which in my book means it’s a good song. It’s his debut single, and it’s amaxing, so he definitely has potential. If you’re into good beats, this is for you.

Lyrics – this song describes what music does to me. It also describes what I hope future loves will do to me (not with actual drugs of course!):

[Verse 1]
Whisper, say my name
The lights are gettin’ lower
Trouble, from your lips
One taste, I’m goin’ over
Falling, between
This feel, is what I’m after
Empty, need the high
Fix me, I’m feelin’ sober

[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t even care, yeah you got me, good
We don’t gotta know if we should
Gettin’ lost on you, yeah you said I could
Cause you know that, cause you know

[Hook 1]
Once I get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got me trippin’ (Oh)
High off of you

[Hook 2]
Once you get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got you trippin’ (Oh)
High off of me

[Chorus]
You keep me from crashing down
Stay a little longer
Stay a little longer with me

[Hook 1]
Once I get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got me trippin’ (Oh)
High off of you

[Verse 2]
Darkness, chase the day
No light, the sun is rising
Burnin’, skin to skin
Meltin’, you can’t fight it
Slippin’, under
The heat, that we keep bringin’
Listen, in my head
With you, you keep it spinning

[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t even care, yeah you got me, good
We don’t gotta know if we should
Gettin’ lost on you, yeah you said I could
Cause you know that, cause you know

[Hook 1]
Once I get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got me trippin’ (Oh)
High off of you

[Hook 2]
Once you get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got you trippin’ (Oh)
High off of me

[Chorus]
You keep me from crashing down
Stay a little longer
Stay a little longer with me

[Hook 1]
Once I get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got me trippin’ (Oh)
High off of you

[Bridge]
You keep me from crashing down
Yeah, you got it figured out
Cause you get me high
You get me high

[Hook 1]
Once I get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got me trippin’ (Oh)
High off of you

[Hook 2]
Once you get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got you trippin’ (Oh)
High off of me

[Chorus]
You keep me from crashing down
Stay a little longer
Stay a little longer with me

[Hook 1]
Once I get it (Going)
So addicted (Oh)
Got me trippin’ (Oh)
High off of you

[Outro]
High off of you
High off of you
(You get)
High off of you
High off of you

Here it is: there’s two versions of it. Personally, I like the remastered version better because it adds another layer to the beat. You should also check out the rest of his songs! (I’m making you at least listen to the remastered version of High).

SIVIK’s SoundCloud profile:

All of SIVIK’s songs are really sexy and I love them! Give him a listen!

Whoever made this tag – thank you so much.

I nominate All The Jazz to do this tag because of your kindness. If you decide to do it, have fun!

Song Challenge Day 2

I’m going to pretend I didn’t skip a day.

Thanks again to OY30 and TheLittleMagicGirl for the nomination!

I’ll just nominate the first name that pops up in my notifications, which goes to InfiniteZip. By the way, your poetry is awesome.

 

So today’s song – and it took me a while to decide – is Church by Chase Atantic.

And while you’re on SoundCloud, you should check out the rest of Chase Atlantic’s songs. I’ll just post the links to everything. Which doesn’t, of course, mean you have to listen to it. But you do. And I’m not forcing you to, just think of it as … a strong sense of coercion.

Today’s song is American Money by BØRNS.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLBmqwA4AGc

 

I love this song because it’s about love and freedom and recklessness and all the ways I want to be in my life.

Honestly I copied the whole thing:

I was there when you fell from the clouds
And landed in the desert
There was a thunder inside of my heart
There was a wonderful pleasure
And like a stallion racing the rain
You rode on the back of my bike
I knew from the song that you sang
You were my lover for life
Oh, there’s no time to sleep
Oh, living in a dream
So take me to the paradise
It’s in your eyes
Green like american money
You taste just right
Sweet like Tennessee honey
And we can run away
Swimming in the sunlight everyday
Paradise, it’s in your eyes
Green like american money
So we took to the Calico road
Running from the weather
There was a highway inside of her eyes
There was a buried treasure
And we got caught in the storm
You started flying a kite
At the end was the key to my heart
You were my lover for life
Oh, there’s no time to sleep
Oh, living in a dream
So take me to the paradise
It’s in your eyes
Green like american money
You taste just right
Sweet like Tennessee honey
And we can run away
Swimming in the sunlight everyday
Paradise, it’s in your eyes
Green like american money
We carved our love in the mountainside
We soaked our hearts in the rain
And I, waited my whole life, for you
So take me to the paradise
It’s in your eyes
Green like american money
You taste just right
Sweet like Tennessee honey
And we can run away
Swimming in the sunlight everyday
Paradise, it’s in your eyes
Green like american money
I nominate Evie for this – I know you don’t like tags and awards, but music. I won’t hate if you don’t do it though. ❤💕💖

Quote of the Day

The only skateboarders that came to the tennis courts were two I’d never seen before. 😢  Shame shame shame on you. I still have Saturday and Sunday – you’d better show up. hahahaha I’m such a weirdo!

When the fever’s gone
And the road’s to dust
I touchdown Sunday
To tie the loose ends up
With a pocket full of
That gypsy stuff
I heard you calling me, calling me, calling me
Through the dissonance
I’ve been known to run
Just to feel the rush
But the dying sun
Illuminates so much
It’s hard to see beyond what’s in sight
But when you tilt the light I realize
For 1000 nights
I’ve been a restless soul
Just wasting time
Digging up fool’s gold
It took a 1000 nights
Being on my own
For me to find
It was all fool’s gold
I felt the fever on
But couldn’t taste the fruit
There’s a bulletproof bond
Between meaning and you
-1000 Nights by Frenship (my calm-down song)
A lovely song!
Ivy is currently listening to: 3 Strikes by Terror Jr.

Quote of the Day/Song(s) of the Week

I found the male Melanie Martinez (at least in my opinion). His name is Alec Benjamin and he’s on SoundCloud. So I’m going to cheat and put a quote of the day and song of the week in one place because you should definitely listen to this song.

She told me that she loved me by the water fountain
She told me that she loved me and she didn’t love him
And that was really lovely because it was innocent
But now she’s got a cup with something else in it
It’s getting kind of blurry at a quarter past ten
And he was in a hurry to be touching her skin
She’s feeling kind of dirty when she’s dancing with him
Forgetting what she told me by the water fountain

-The Water Fountain by Alec Benjamin

I also like End of the Summer and 1994 (which I’ll include here because why not?) You might like some of his other song, so go to SoundCloud and have a look-see there if you want. Enjoy at your own risk – they’re really addictive!

Love,

Ivy

Song of the Week

It’s that time again!

I’ve decided to go with whatever’s playing on my Ipod at this moment. *Walks away to check her Ipod*

It’s Trees by Twenty One Pilots!

This is the preview just so you know that his voice doesn’t sound all robotic like that.

This is the original version that they changed into the first song up above.

“I know
Where you stand
Silent
In the trees
And that’s
Where I am
Silent
In the trees

Why won’t you speak?
Where I happen to be
Silent
In the trees
Standing cowardly
I can feel your breath
I can feel my death
I want to know you
I want to see
I want to say
Hello”
That quote is me with my crush,
Ivy

Song of the Week

(*Cue off-key singing*) For the first time in forever……

Getting right to it for once! This week’s song is:

I love that Twenty One Pilots isn’t obsessed with beauty and aestheticness when it comes to their album covers. Most album covers are an overly made-up celebrity but theirs are just real.

“So won’t you say goodnight, so I can say goodbye?”

And here’s another one to make up for last week. :/

Perfect for when you’re down.

“Sing a song but don’t believe, blasphemy is just for me.”

Enjoy ’em,

Ivy

Song of the Week

I saw I hadn’t done this in 12 days…oops.

This week’s song is The Original Song by Adam Lambert.

Funny story, I found this song on an airplane. They literally had one pop album so I was like ‘Ugh, there’s only one song I know on this album. *Resigned sigh*’ But I actually ended up liking another song on the album, so I guess it was worth it.

Thankfully, it was on SoundCloud. Enjoy!

Love,

Ivy
