Song of the Week: Home

Last night, in the middle of an argument with my poor overworked wife, I got in the car to go to the Acme. This song came on and, after thanking my lucky stars that I live someplace where this song could come on the radio, I realized it was so perfect for how lost I was feeling/ how dumb I was being.

Hopefully I can make it up to her with lots of snuggling during Project Runway time.

Home-- LCD Soundsystem
Take me home

Just do it right
Make it perfect and real
Because it's everything
No everything was never the deal

So grab your things and stumble into the night
So we can shut the door
Oh, shut the door on terrible times

Yeah, do it right
And head again into space
So you can carry on
And carry on, and fall all over the place

This is the trick, forget a terrible year
That we can break the laws
Until it gets weird

And this is what you waited for
But under lights, we're all unsure
So tell me
What would make you feel better?

As night has such a local ring
And love and rock are pick-up things
And you know it
Yeah, you know it
Yeah, you know


Forget your past
This is your last chance now
And we can break the rules
Like nothing will last

You might forget
Forget the sound of a voice
Still you should not forget
Yeah, don't forget
The things that we laughed about

And after rolling on the floor
And thankfully, a few make sure that you get home
And you stay home
And you better

'Cause you're afraid of what you need
Yeah, you're afraid of what you need
If you weren't, yeah you weren't
Then I don't know what we'd talk about

Yeah no one ever knows what you're talking about
So i guess you're already there
No one opens up when you scream and shout
But it's time to make a couple things clear

If you're afraid of what you need
If you're afraid of what you need
Look around you, you're surrounded
It won't get any better

Until the night

  1. From one overworked wife to another, I am sorry. You are amazing. We will hide out on Friday, not answering the door, our phones, carrier pigeons, morse code, emails, or any other forms of communication/intrusion from the outside world. (I know we can't really, but let's pretend.)
