‘God damn, it’s great to be alive’

My new jam. Hat-tip to W.

“You’re not delivering a perfect body to the grave
Time is not there to be saved
Life is a holiday
A moment stolen from the black
Before the demons drag you back
You won’t get everything you wanted
But you will never be defeated.”

— Frank Turner, “Demons”

Especially relevant today.

‘Say you’ll see me again even if it’s just in your wildest dreams’

Le sigh.

“You see me in hindsight
Tangled up with you all night
Burning it down
Someday when you leave me
I bet these memories follow you around.”

— Taylor Swift, “Wildest Dreams”

‘To keep the Goddess on my side, she demands a sacrifice’

“My Church offers no absolutes
She tells me, ‘Worship in the bedroom.’
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you.”

— Hozier, “Take Me to Church”

Admittedly I was psychologically healthier when I went to church regularly. Now I don’t go at all and I can tell my soul is a mess and things don’t go as well as they did.

But Sunday morning religious experiences don’t always have to happen outside of the house. Just sayin’.

To sum up this week in song

‘Want to feel burning flames when you say my name’

January 8th, 2015, 10:00 PM by Goddess

“‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away.”

— Jessie Ware, “Say You Love Me”

The one thing I promised myself is to go for it this time. Feel it. Every delicious high and excruciating low.

Mission accomplished. Including everything in between.
