"And the piano’s this melancholy soundtrack to her smile"


Sometime Around Midnight - The Airborne Toxic Event

This song has one of the most heartbreaking lyrics I've ever heard.
Yet it is beautiful.

And it starts, sometime around midnight
Or at least that’s when you lose yourself
for a minute or two
As you stand, under the bar lights
And the band plays some song
about forgetting yourself for a while
And the piano’s this melancholy soundtrack to her smile
And that white dress she’s wearing
you haven’t seen her for a while

But you know, that she’s watching
She’s laughing, she’s turning
She’s holding her tonic like a cross
The room’s suddenly spinning
She walks up and asks how you are
So you can smell her perfume
You can see her lying naked in your arms

And so there’s a change, in your emotions
And all these memories come rushing
like feral waves to your mind
Of the curl of your bodies
like two perfect circles entwined
And you feel hopeless and homeless
and lost in the haze of the wine

Then she leaves, with someone you don’t know.
But she makes sure you saw her.
She looks right at you and bolts.
As she walks out the door,
your blood boiling
your stomach in ropes.
Oh and when your friends say,
“What is it? You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Then you walk, under the streetlights.
And you’re too drunk to notice,
that everyone is staring at you.
You just don’t care what you look like,
the world is falling around you.

You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You know that she’ll break you in two

I've actually posted its music video in one of my posts in one of the recent months. Heh. :)

Unfortunately, embedding is not allowed for this song: SUPERHUMAN TOUCH by ATHLETE.

Today was a pretty productive day for me.
I have a long weekend this week, with no classes on Monday because it's Bonifiacio Day in our country (if I'm not mistaken).

I slept before the clock struck midnight last night and I woke up a few minutes past 10 in the morning. I battled with myself a little, debating whether to get off my all-too-tempting bed or to just sleep in. I forced myself to do the former. Too much of something is not good for you after all.
So, I ate whatever was left of breakfast, and proceeded to do school work. I made it a point to catch up on my reading regarding the lessons we are currently having this third quarter. I still do have the goal of achieving an award when I graduate -though that dream seems very far off now especially with the effort I'm putting on my studies. However, though I might not graduate with the awards I wish for, it's fine by me as long as I'll have no regrets that I didn't study sufficiently. I'd be pacified by knowing that I did my best to accomplish this goal. :) Time to make up the losses I've incurred in that past two quarters with the other two quarters I still have ahead of me (oh, am I not inspired right now? HAHA).
I actually devoted yesterday (Friday) to be my catch-up-on-my-lessons day but, unfortunately, I was overpowered by the all-too-tempting internet. Oh well. At least I was productive today. Heh. :)

I read the chapters about peace and the poor for my CLE class, and for Economics, the various sectors of the economy, and their relationship. Basically that 2 chapters and 2 modules in half a day so I'm pretty proud. Heh.

I was supposed to start reading Book 3 (Marius) of Les Miserables as well for my English class but, I decided to rest my mind a little by listening to some music. So I did. Later on I made up my mind to..."play" dress-up, come out with an outfit for the upcoming legacy of the Grade 7. I mixed and matched and came-up with perhaps...3 to 5 outfits but decided that I'll wear them to some other school event instead. I have a prospect for the legacy though. :)

I'm currently updating my playlists in my Mixpod account. just doesn't work in our country anymore -due to licensing issues of the practically all the songs. How lame and unfortunate.

I will post my playlist here when it's complete. Heh. :)
