I wish I wrote that.

the national.Sometimes I hear certain song lyrics that I fall in love with. It’s the message, usually, but sometimes it’s just how they sound… how the singer sings them… how they flow. [I am not a musician… can you tell?]

Anyway, I have been listening to The National lately. Constantly. And something about these little bits just sounds perfect. And I wish I wrote these words… so I thought I would share.

You keep a lot of secrets
And I keep none
Wish I could go back
And keep some
~The National Fireproof

I couldn’t find quiet
I went out in the rain
I was just soaking my head
To unrattle my brain
~The National Pink Rabbits

There’s a lot I’ve not forgotten
But I let go of other things
If I tried they’d probably be
Hard to find
~The National Hard to Find


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
