a follow friday playlist, part two! 

Yup. Just like last time. I’m even using capitals again. How official.

So there are mostly the same people on here as last time, but I did include new people. And all new songs. And links to the songs this time, because I’m not going to be lazy about it.

And once again, some people get songs that relate to them by the lyrics, and some by the sound. If there’s a song that has strange lyrics, try not to freak out. Just listen to the song. All of them sound beautiful to me, just like all of you are beautiful to me. Cry.

THIS TOOK A LOT LONGER THAN I HAD IMAGINED, HOLY LORD.

aish; Godrevy Point by Patrick Wolf (this video is the only one. :c)

Good lord it was a beautiful day
For untangling, unraveling my heavy heart away
To forgive and forget myself
and my enemies, my bruises washed away

ana; Chariot by Gavin Degraw

Remember seeking moons of birth 
Rings made mirrors of the earth 
The sun was just yellow energy 
It is a living promise land 
Even over fields of sand 
Seasons fill my mind and 
Cover me 
From bringing back 
More than a memory 

ashley; Everything by Michael Bublé (oh yes, i went there)

And in this crazy life
And through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you
You make me sing
You’re every line
You’re every word
You’re everything

beauFavorite Girl by Icarus Account 

And hey, maybe we could stay
And maybe we could lay like this forever

And don’t you know she is my favorite girl
Wanna run away for days with her
And if you promise not to say a thing
I’m gonna buy that girl a diamond ring
I said, I think I love you

cee; Go Do by Jónsi (i don’t know. really. don’t ask me. i don’t even know why you’re on here ugh YOU LAUGH AT MY PAIN. but you deserve to be on here. so.)

the entire song?

chloe; Life Is A Highway by Tom Cochrane (you know why)

There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where Blues won’t haunt you anymore
For the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore

christy; Birds of a Feather by The Civil Wars

But who could do without you?
And who could do without you?

creole; The Wonder Of Life by Alexander Desplat (always Alexander Desplat for you shdoigh)

[instrumental]

holly; Crystalised by The XX

it’s the sound

jun; I Need Something by Newton Faulkner (yuuup)

I need something to believe in 
cause I don’t believe in my self 

I’m sick and tired of getting no where 
guess it’ll all work out 

And I don’t mind any more 
and I don’t mind any more

kate; Hot Mess by Hedley (no seriously. i don’t know why it took so long to make this connection. but i did. and you should listen to it.)

It’s killing me, killing me, killing me i can’t stop
Didn’t mama always tell me not to get mixed up
With the pretty little girls that like to play rough?
Oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my

kelly; Across The Universe by The Beatles

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind
Possessing and caressing me

kelsey; The Fear by Ben Howard

I’ve been worrying that my time is a little unclear
I’ve been worrying that I’m losing the ones I hold dear
I’ve been worrying that we all, live our lives
In the confines of fear

kim; The Minnow & The Trout by A Fine Frenzy (tbh i actually love this song so much)

Help me out, 
Said the minnow to the trout
I was lost and found 
Myself swimming in your mouth

Oh, help me chief,
I’ve got plans for you and me
I swear upon this riverbed, 
I’ll help you feel young again

kira; If I Had A Boat by James Vincent McMorrow

If I had a boat, I would sail to you
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true
Once I had a dream, it died long before
Now I’m pointed north, hoping for the shore

Down low, down amongst the thorn rows
Weeds grow, through the lilies and the vine
Birds play, try to find their own way
Soft clay, on your feet and under mine

lex; Heartbeats (cover) by Royal Teeth

Both under influence 
We had divine sense 
To know what to say 
Mind is a razorblade 
To call for hands of above to lean on 
Wouldn’t be good enough for me, no 

nicole; I’m Not Going by Meghan Tonjes (i gave you this song for reasons you’ll understand when you listen to the lyrics)

So, you rang the alarm
Kept your wolves at bay
They don’t know what you do
Only what you say
You might have them all fooled
But, i’m not the same
I’m the one that you found
I’m the one you made

paula; Se Eu Corro by A Banda Mais Bonita da Cidade (are you surprised? honestly.)

you know the lyrics better than i do. they probably don’t mean as much to you in english anyway.

sarah; Lights by Ellie Goulding (i thought i’d bring it back ♥)

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone, 
You shine It when I’m alone,
And so I tell myself that I’ll be strong,
And dreaming when they’re gone

toriBowsprit by Balmorhea

[instrumental]

ALRIGHT I KNOW THIS IS CHEATING

these two aren’t close to me like the rest of them, so i can’t give an exact song.

BUT they are really amazing people and they write gorgeously and they’re so kind.

so, i’m including dawnperhaps and puppetere and i’m thinking they’d get Since You’ve Been Around (for reasons) and Skeletons respectively.
