Sweet-Ass Lyrics and Lines Pt. 2: I'll Bring Home the Turkey

Also: Autostraddle made you a Valentine's day mixtape which includes anti-Valentine's day songs if you hate everything. I made some picks so go check it out!

"..till he forgets the crawling way real people sometimes are."

Pink Floyd - Time
"and you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking. racing around, to come up behind you again."

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Scar Tissue
"autumn's sweet, we call it fall, i'll make it to the moon if i have to crawl."

"and sometimes when you're on, you're really fucking on."

Rise Against - Life Less Frightening
"i don't ask for much, truth be told i'd settle for a life less frightening."

"i wish i was too young to taste the time tripped over and over again."

The Shins - Australia
"i felt like i could just fly, but nothing happened every time i tried."

The Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet With Butterfly Wings
"despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage."

The Smiths - How Soon is Now?
"i am human and i need to be loved, just like everybody else."

"when there's nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire."
(because it's too hard to chose anything else)

Taking Back Sunday - You're So Last Summer
"the truth is you could slit my throat, and with my one last gasping breath i'd apologize for bleeding on your shirt."

Tegan and Sara - So Jealous
"there i am in the morning, i don't like what i see."
(chosen arbitrarily, or else i would just have to put every line ever)

"it's you when i look in the mirror and it's you when i don't pick up the phone."

The Weakerthans - Left and Leaving
"the sidewalks are watching me think about you."

Weezer - El Scorcho
"i'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon."

and just for the record because it's one of the greatest lines ever in the whole world
Bright Eyes - Saturday as Usual
"i can't see the point of patient love when everyone just wants to get fucked."

"i ain't lost, just wandering"
adele: hometown

"it's cold but not that deep,
cause your legs grow"
nada surf: your legs grow

"now my feet won't touch the ground"
coldplay: strawberry swing, now my feet won't touch the ground, life in technicolor ii

the first one reminds me of a line from a band of horses song: "if i am lost, it's only for a little while."

and the last one reminds me of a line from a stephen dunn poem: "oh poetry, oh the importance of ground/when leaving the ground."
