about 90% of the music i’ve posted, reblogged, or quoted on here is made up of listener, my epic, plea, and angels and airwaves.
Some Christians look to be right, and some look to do right. You would think that those who look to first be right would end up eventually doing right, but it seems as though they often end up focusing on themselves, and their sin, then on the sins of others, and they become the kind of…
How do you show that you like your fans? You don’t ding’em for money every possible chance you get. You make CD’s long and add a lot of cool bonus cuts. You don’t charge $50 for a t-shirt. When kids download your stuff for free off of the…internet and tell you about it, you don’t get mad at them. My parting line is ” I’D RATHER BE HEARD THAN PAID.” Am I going to come after you like Lars Ulrich, demanding my 35 cents, nah man. If you can’t afford to listen to my music and you gotta get it off the internet, at least you’re rockin -Henry Rollins
Have you ever seen a guy completely in love with a girl? I’m talking madly, completely, head over heels in love.
A lot of times this is more apparent in guys when the girl doesn’t love them back. It’s crazy. Often times guys turn into completely different people in order to win the girl of their…
Top 10 favorite albums in the past 4 years.
(Yes, this was a painful decision to make. I MUST give honorable mentions to Snow Patrol’s Eyes Open and fun.’sAim and Ignite.)
Six websites I go to when I am upset:
the hug one made me cry

the hug one is literally perfect
In our inner-city ministry, we often talk about how it’s important to “de-fang” sin. that is to say, it’s important to reduce the emotions that surround sin, in order to better defeat it. If people are overwhelmed with their sin, then they can’t overcome it, so step one is often putting sin in…
“Interviewer: Some of my favourite lyrics are from the songs ‘Wooden Heart’ and ‘Seatbelt Hands’. Would you mind elaborating on the lines: […] “She’s crashing through life with seatbelt hands, one accident away from a miracle”?
Dan Smith: […] The other song, ‘Seatbelt Hands’, isn’t really about my Mom, but maybe that line could be. I have this memory of her putting out her hand in front of me when she stopped really quickly at a light, even though I was wearing a seatbelt. I thought about that, and how all these years after, it made me feel loved. So the woman I was writing about was someone from my past who had a lot of love, and had that sort of kneejerk love that was given, but I always felt like she was one more broken nose away from getting it. Like the carrot of making it, or finding love or peace, was always there but sort of unobtainable. If she could just survive one more accident, then it would be okay. That was the idea behind that one. [.]”
A Song from a Knife Salesman to His Wife on Their Wedding Day- Listener
You spun the wheels on this rusty heart, and I’ll never be the same.
I’m not that good with words, I’ll try my hardest anyways,
and they get caught in my throat no matter how loud I scream them out.
“Grow old with me.” I can’t seem to say it any more convincingly.
You pulled the pin and asked me to hold your heart together
but not with words; you crash landed right here inside my hands.
My little bird, let’s go and fly this globe all over
and show them how, our love does fill up all the oceans.
I don’t deserve you, and I’ll probably fail you in almost every single way
and so I’m sorry. Love, your husband on your wedding day.
