four down, one to go

This is a mix CD that is velvetcherri's Friendship Stimulus gift. Will be uploading the actual tracks over the next few hours. Done.

Absinthe and Whiskey

1. "This Girl Is Taking Bets" - Thea Gilmore
This girl is a stencil
Of a brushstroke in the rain.
She's a ghost of the city,
She's a body through the windscreen.

2. "Control" - Poe
All those things
That you taught me to fear?
I've got them in my garden now,
And your not welcome here.

3. "Not Pretty Enough" - Kasey Chambers
Don't I make you laugh?
Should I try it harder?
Why do you see right through me?

4. "The Babysitter's Here" - Dar Williams
She says, "Do me a favor.
Don't go with a guy
Who would make you choose."

5. "Small Blue Thing" - Suzanne Vega
I am thrown against the sky.
I am raining down in pieces.
I am scattering like light.

6. "Down to Nowhere" - Thea Gilmore
Yeah, I am going down to nowhere.
Oh, it's child' s play.
We are turning up our collars,
We are hijacking the day.

7. "When I Was a Boy" - Dar Williams
And now I'm in this clothing store
And the signs say less is more.
More that's tight means more to see.
More for them, not more for me.

8. "The Pointless, Yet Poignant, Crisis of a Co-Ed" - Dar Williams
I'm not a leader,
I'm not a left-wing rhetoric mobilizing force of one.
But there was a time way back,
Many years ago, in college (don't laugh).

9. "A Kinder Columbus" - Deb Talan
Dancing down a sidewalk,
Past a honeysuckle moon.
Such tenderness and his head against mine.

10. "Closer to Fine" - Indigo Girls
And the best thing you've ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously.
It's only life, after all.

11. "How Will He Find Me" - Deb Talan
I walk the world with a skin so thin.
I can wear no adequate protection,
Everything comes crashing in.

12. "Like a River" - Kasey Chambers
Rain falls, won't wash this away.
I'll build a stone wall to make you stay.

13. "Water to Sky" - Thea Gilmore
She lived in the spaces where the lightning fries.
Take her to the frozen earth, God.
Yeah, she lived in the spaces with the dark in her eyes.
Take her from the water to sky.

14. "Tangled and Wild" - Oh Susanna
Well, I have lived in this city
Nearly all of my life,
But in my heart there's a country
That's tangled and wild.

15. "Mouth" - Merril Bainbridge
Now, will it be my fault if I
Take your love and throw it wide?
You might restrain me,
But could you really blame me?

16. "I Won't Be Your Yoko Ono" - Dar Williams
Some will give their love for fashion.
Others trade their gold for passion.
I don't have the goods to start with,
Never had the reins to part with.
Still, I hope you take me seriously.

17. "Be Like Water" - Sarah Fimm
If everything is just the way it should be,
Why am I, why am I still hungry?

18. "Holding Out for a Hero" - Frou Frou
Racing on the thunder,
Rising with the heat,
It's gonna take a superman
To sweep me off my feet.

19. "Coin-Operated Boy" - Dresden Dolls
this bridge was written
To make you feel smittener
With my sad picture
Of girl getting bitterer.

20. "Suddenly I See" - KT Tunstall
And everything around her is a silver pool of light,
And the people who surround her feel the benefit of it.
It makes you calm.
She holds you captivated in her palm.

21. "Pussy Manifesto" - Bitch & Animal
Manifest this (motha fucka) #1:
Every living thing comes from and returns to...
(Get it?)
