“Newsfox” and “Mother of Notes” Soundtrack

Most of you won’t get what I’m posting here right now; it is what you would call a private joke between some friends and I. “Newsfox” is the much-hated nickname I gave to one of the guys a few months back for reasons that fall into our Confidentiality Clause Agreement – I wouldn’t mind sharing them with you all because it’s a pretty funny story, but I think he would retaliate somehow in the future if I do so and I don’t want to give him more ammo than he already has- and “Mother of Notes” is the one that I’ve been sporting since they decided to mess around with my notes, like I explained in another post a few months ago – although Newsfox started calling me “Molly” a few weeks ago and I’m nort entirely sure why…

Anyway, as much teasing as there is going on between the both of us, we have a kind of an unspoken agreement to pamper each other from time to time, so we can breathe a bit from the relentlessness of our borderline harassing banter. Last Friday, right after one of my exams, I went to a friend’s house where he was too drinking beers and watching a movie. At that view I made sure to let them know that I was hating them both for not having anything to do while I was stuck with college responsabilities. But Newsfox surprised me when he got his guitar and began playing “Silver Coin” (the last song in this post). Apparently, he had learnt how to play it in the past few weeks so he could show me before I leave to the south of Spain.

I am not someone who makes a habit of going up on a stage and sing about my inconditional love and loyalty to someone. But I do have a blog, and so far a few thousands have read the ramblings that I here write, so I decided to return the favour in front of a wider audience – and if I know him at all, I just turned this thing that we have going on into a challenge…

Newsfox, we have a soundtrack!

Won’t you give me something I need
Won’t you peel me off the street
Gonna wet my tongue
Spit me up and break me a fever
Give me something I can believe in
Give me something to walk me away
I’m a wasting time
And all in all a waste of a living
Waste of a living

Can’t you see me walking alone
I’ve been down to the horns and back
And I’m way too tired
Of blowing out on a burning candle
I got no money but I want you so
I got no money but I want you so oh

I’ve got so much I cannot handle
Cannot handle
I cannot handle

We are all just pissing around
Cutting loose in this fucking town
I aint coming back
I’ve got my ticket, onto the next one
I got no money but I want you so
I got no money but I want you so oh
And I want, and I want, and I want, and I want ya 

You’ve applied the pressure
To have me crystallized 
And you’ve got the faith
That I could bring paradise

I’ll forgive and forget
Before I’m paralyzed
Do I have to keep up the pace
To keep you satisfied?

Things have gotten closer to the sun
And I’ve done things in small doses
So don’t think that I’m pushing you away
When you’re the one that I’ve kept closest

You don’t move slow
Taking steps in my direction
The sound resounds, echo
Does it lessen your affection? No…

You say I’m foolish
For pushing this aside
But burn down our home
I won’t leave alive

Glaciers have melted to the sea
I wish the tide would take me over
I’ve been down on my knees
And you just keep on getting closer

Glaciers have melted to the sea
(Things have gotten closer to the sun)
I wish the tide would take me over
(And I’ve done things in small doses)
I’ve been down onto my knees
(So don’t think that I’m pushing you away)
And you just keep on getting closer
(When you’re the one that I’ve kept closest)

Go slow

Heard the rattle from the train
Sounds of a hundred people,
Maybe more
Cut through the ropes before you came
I had a dream that you were gone.

I’m in the days of throwing rocks
When I saw your picture on a silver coin
Stole a kiss through your golden locks
I had a dream that you were gone.
Woke up and you were gone

All this love has gone away
Cause I didn’t have the heart or strength to say
I’ll miss you when you’re gone
I’ll miss you when you’re gone
I’ll miss you when you’re gone
I’ll miss you when you’re gone

Heard the rattle from the chains
This goddamn room it gets so small sometimes
Found a drink and hit the shame                                                                                                 I had a dream that you were gone
Woke up and you were gone.
