summer kids - a mix for Josh, Nate, and Baxter


Bright Eyes - June on the West Coast
Josh, growing up

I spent a week drinking the sunlight of Winnetka, California
Where they understand the weight of human hearts
You see sorrow gets too heavy and joy it tends to hold you
With the fear that it eventually departs.
And the truth is I've been dreaming of some tired, tranquil place
Where the weather won't get trapped inside my bones
And if all the years of searching find one sympathetic face
Then it's there I will plant these seeds and make my home


AURORA - Nature Boy
Nate, growing up

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far
Very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he

And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return"


Radiohead - Subterranean Homesick Alien
Baxter, growing up

The breath of the morning
I keep forgetting
The smell of the warm summer air

I live in a town
Where you can't smell a thing
You watch your feet
For cracks in the pavement


Eels - Rotten World Blues
Josh's philosophy after drowning

This rotten world's gonna chew you up
Swallow you whole and then spit you back out
The sooner you recognize this simple fact
Then this rotten world gives you what you lack


Dresden Dolls - The Kill
Nate, in NYC

I have a tendency
To exaggerate
Just a little bit
I am a plagiarist
Apologist
A walruscokeheadlizard
I am an optimist
A closeted misogynist
I fought the British and I won
I have a wishing well a living will a magical eight ball


Amanda Palmer & the Grand Theft Orchestra - Trout Heart Replica
Baxter, before Josh

And killing things is not so hard
It's hurting that's the hardest part
And when the wizard gets to me
I'm asking for a smaller heart
And if he tells me "no"
I'll hold my breath until I hit the floor
Eventually I'm know I'm doomed
To get what I am asking for


Amanda Palmer & the Grand Theft Orchestra - Do It With A Rockstar
Josh, pretty much all the time

No regrets
Noblesse oblige
Do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna fight?
Do you wanna get drunk and stay the night?
Do you wanna smoke till our throats are sore?
Make out and then talk and then make out some more?


PWR BTTM - West Texas
Nate, heading west

You left New York for West Texas
To avoid all of your exes
How ironic when that is your thing

You left New York for New Jersey
And took your pills and got up early
You felt amazing, I just felt okay


Gracie Folds - Nathan
Nate

sitting alone on the pavement
you wait for your older friends to save you
picking at the holes in your pockets
you'll lose so many others before you break and patch it

back when comic sans was cool
sleeping was easy and eating was too
and i wasn't a finger tip away


Panic! at the Disco - Turn Off the Lights
Baxter

It's almost like I found a friend
Who's in it for the bitter end
Our consciences are always so much heavier than our egos
I set my expectations high
So nothing ever comes out right

So shoot a star on the boulevard tonight
I think I'll figure it out with a little more time
But who needs time...?


Postal Service - Natural Anthem
Josh

I'll write you a song and I hope that you won't mind
Because all the names and places I have taken from real life
So please don't get upset at this portrait that I paint
It may be a little biased, but at least I spelt your name right


Postal Service - Turn Around
Josh, to Baxter

Cool hands, warm heart,
Big dreams, false starts
Those pills don't work
They just make it worse
Don't say you're through
I'll swim beside you
This town, this sea
Won't drag you underneath

You gotta know that this will turn around
Until then I will not let you down
When you find your ship has run aground
You can call me, I won't let you down
I won't let you down,
This will turn around


Magnetic Fields - Lovers From the Moon
Josh, to Nate

I'm not afraid to walk hand in hand
I think we were made to lie in the sand
Decadently by the sea, under the sun

Touching across the room like lovers from the moon
Dancing all night to the tune of lovers from the moon


Feist - My Moon My Man
Nate, to Josh

My moon, my man
So changeable and
Such a loveable lamb to me

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go but on

...

Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please


Bloc Party - Blue Light
Nate, to Baxter

I still feel you and the taste of cigarettes
What could I ever run to
Just tell me it's tearing you apart
Just tell me you cannot sleep

And you didn't even notice
When the sky turned blue
And you couldn't tell the difference
Between me and you
And I nearly didn't notice
The gentlest feeling


Ella Fitzgerald - My Funny Valentine
Baxter, to Nate

behold the way our fine feathered friend,
his virtue doth parade
thou knowest not, my dim-witted friend
the picture thou hast made
thy vacant brow, and thy tousled hair
conceal thy good intent
thou noble upright truthful sincere,
and slightly dopey gent


Scissor Sisters - Might Tell You Tonight
Baxter, to Josh

When you're quiet, but your eyes
Are saying everything I need to know
I want to burrow like a sparrow
Dodging alley cats and whiskers
Why do we talk in whispers?
Is it painful hearing voices ring
So early in the morning?

...

And I just might say it tonight
I just might say it tonight
I just might tell you tonight
That I love you
And you should stay all my life


Chaos Chaos - Do You Feel It?
The boys, at the tipping point

Do you feel it, do you feel it?
Do you feel that I can see your soul?
Do you feel it, do you feel it?
Do you feel the beat in your heart?
I-I want it, I want it real
Run away with me now


New Order - Bizarre Love Triangle
Trying to figure out what the fuck they're doing

I feel fine and I feel good
I'm feeling like I never should
Whenever I get this way
I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be ourselves like we were yesterday
I'm not sure what this could mean
I don't think you're what you seem
I do admit to myself
That if I hurt someone else
Then I'll never see just what we're meant to be


Cure - Lovecats
Figuring it out

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It's the grooviest thing
It's the perfect dream


Weezer - Island in the Sun
The boys, together

On an island in the sun
We'll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can't control my brain

We'll run away together
We'll spend some time forever
We'll never feel bad anymore
