Still there are darkened places, deep in my heart

~ a playlist for the lovers filled with luster, for the secret-hearted, super-impassioned individualists out there looking to listen to bombastic aural poetry from sexy siren voices.

Artists: Paramore + Hayley Williams + Kacey Musgraves + Dua Lipa + Carly Rae Jepsen + Grimes + HAIM + Caroline Polachek + Lana Del Rey + Lindsey Stirling + Phoebe Bridgers + SZA

Paramore – Let The Flames Begin, Part II
What a shame, what a shame we all remain
Such fragile broken things

A beauty half betrayed
Butterflies with punctured wings

Still there are darkened places deep in my heart
Where once was blazing light, now
There’s a tiny spark
Paramore – Turn It Off
And the worst part is
Before it gets any better
We’re headed for a cliff
And in the free fall I
Will realize I’m better off
When I hit the bottom
Hayley Williams – Simmer
Rage is a quiet thing
Ooh, you think that you’ve tamed it
But it’s just lying in wait
Rage, is it in our veins?
Feel it in my face when
When I least expect it
Kacey Musgraves – Oh, What A World
Oh, what a world, don’t wanna leave
All kinds of magic all around us; it’s hard to believe
Thank God it’s not too good to be true
Oh, what a world, and then there is you
Dua Lipa – Don’t Start Now
If you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me
(Don’t, don’t, don’t)
Carly Rae Jepsen – Cut To The Feeling
I wanna cut through the clouds, break the ceiling
I wanna dance on the roof, you and me alone
I wanna cut to the feeling, oh yeah
I wanna cut to the feeling, oh yeah (Woo)
Grimes & i_o – Violence
You wanna make me bad, make me bad
And I like it like that, and I like it like that
You wanna make me bad? Pay me back
Said, “I like it like that,” said, “I like it like that”
HAIM – Hallelujah
I met two angels, but they were in disguise
Took one look to realize
Tell ’em anything and they will sympathize
These arms hold me tight
Old fears, helped to ease them in my mind
New tears say that they will dry in time

Why me? How’d I get this hallelujah?
Caroline Polachek – So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings
I get a little lonely
Get a little more close to me

You’re the only one who knows me, babe
So hot you’re hurting my feelings (Woo)
Can’t deal
Lana Del Rey – Mariners Apartment Complex
You took my sadness out of context
At the Mariners Apartment Complex

I ain’t no candle in the wind
I’m the board, the lightning, the thunder
Kind of girl who’s gonna make you wonder
Who you are and who you’ve been
Lindsey Stirling – Underground
Phoebe Bridgers – I Know the End
Somewhere in Germany, but I can’t place it
Man, I hate this part of Texas

Close my eyes, fantasize
Three clicks and I’m home
When I get back I’ll lay around
Then I’ll get up and lay back down
Romanticize a quiet life

There’s no place like my room
SZA – Good Days
Good day in my mind, safe to take a step out
Get some air now, let yo edge out
Too soon, I spoke
You be heavy in my mind, can you get the heck out?

I need rest now, got me bummed out
You so, you so, you
Baby, baby, babe
I’ve been on my empty mind shit

~ Vibe

Love songs x fight songs – for singing and driving to, for vibing or headbanging, for thinking about her. Him. Them.

~ Aesthetic ~

Songs about pain and joy, anxiety and bliss, faith and doubt, the unknowns of potential knowingness — the chaos of feeling

Moods ~
