Between the Bars

Elliott Smith, 1969 to 2003

"Like a lot of great dark artists, he made suffering beautiful, he redeemed it."


Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won't but you might
The potential you'll be
That you'll never see
The promises you'll only make

Drink up with me now
And forget all about
The pressure of days
Do what I say
And I'll make you okay
And drive them away
The images stuck in your head

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Drink up baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there
With your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught

Drink up one more time
And I'll make you mine
Keep you apart,
Deep in my heart
Separate from the rest,
Where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Sadness

By Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan, 1973





Sadness is in your eye
Who could have made you cry?
My lullaby
Roll along the sleepy dream, deep
Roll along the sleepy dream, deep

Salty tear down your cheek
Drowning the words you speak.
My lullaby can dry your every care
Roll along the sleepy dream, deep
Roll along the sleepy dream, deep

Sweet dream, my baby lie
Here in my arms tonight
Don't cry I'll hold you tight,
And soothe all your worry away.

My lullaby can fly you out of there
Roll along the sleepy dream, deep
Roll along the sleepy dream -

Sweet dream, my baby lie
Here in my arms tonight
Don't cry I'll hold you tight,
And soothe all your worries away.

Sadness is in your eye
Who could have made you cry?
Sadness is in your eye
Sadness 
















Bonus

Donovan's second album, Fairytale, made in 1965 when he was just 19

Vorfreude

(noun) A German untranslatable word, vorfreude is defined as the intense euphoric sensation you experience from thinking about future plans and daydreams. This beautiful feeling is a natural reaction the human mind manifests from expectations of future pleasures and joyful anticipations, such as planning a trip, going on a date, and many other fulfilling, life-changing events.






 



 







Laurel and Hardy - The Battle of the Century (1927)

"Thank you…for gracing my life with your lovely presence, for adding the sweet measure of your soul to my existence." — Richard Matheson, What Dreams May Come.

Sweet Rejection

Experimental Products 

From the album Prototype, 1982

Genre: Coldwave/Synth








 


She sits there waiting, fingers dancing.
Waiting for, a lunch engagement.
It's half-past-one, and still no sign.
Oh what torture, how sublime.

Be a saviour, keep another in mind.
See you later, oh so very unkind.
Persecution, we wear a face of a clown.
Sweet rejection brings you tumbling down.

The evening's over, there's no-one here.
The wooden cross of life to bear.
Shaky future, this life is tough.
I've got to say, OK enough.

Oh so peaceful, think how nice it could be.
But as always, one and one will make three.
Keep your chin up, don't be wearing a frown.
Sweet rejection, brings you tumbling down.

Be a saviour, keep another in mind.
See you later, oh so very unkind.
Persecution, we wear a face of a clown.
Sweet rejection brings you tumbling down.
