Musical Monday

I love searching around my music collection for something new to post up for a Musical Monday. I don't like to repeat myself too often, especially when there's so much good music out there to be listened to and enjoyed.

So I was clicking through some stuff I haven't listened to in a while and came across Sara Bareilles. I really liked Little Voice (BTW, you can click through that sponsored link and pick up the download for just four bucks, which is a total steal!) and am looking forward to the release of her new album in a few weeks.

Anyway, I haven't listened to it in a while, so I ran it a bit last night while I was goofing around online before bed and I remembered how much I liked it. She's got a beautiful voice, some gorgeous keys work, and just a fantastic sound. If you haven't heard of her, you're definitely missing out.

Really, all of the songs on this album are good, but I'm going with City for today's post. I absolutely love the lyric for this one. I think no matter what we do, it's easy to get lost in the doing. Having someone to hold on to when you feel like you're losing yourself is an amazing thing.

There's a harvest each saturday night
At the bars filled with perfume and hitching a ride
A place you can stand for one night and get gone
It's clear this conversation ain't' doing a thing
Cause these boys only listen to me when I sing
And I don't feel like singing tonight
All the same songs

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
Nothing here to hold on to
Could I hold you?

The situation's always the same
You got your wolves in their clothes whispering Hollywood's name
Stealing gold from the silver they see
But it's not me

Here in these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could I hold you?

Calling out somebody save me I feel like I'm fading away
Am I gone?
Calling out somebody save me I feel like I'm fading

In these deep city lights
Girl could get lost tonight
I'm finding every reason to be gone
There's nothing here to hold on to
Could I hold on to you?
