OK, so I've finished the second part of the mix for my Tiny MIx Tapes swap, but now I don't know which is which. This was supposed to be side B of a mix comprised of songs, new and old, that have been haunting me lately. The A side was "Some Nights I Thirst For Real Blood," but now that I listen to it, I kinda think this one should be considered the A side. I dunno, what do you think?

"Summer in the city
I'm so lonely, lonely, lonely

So I went to a protest
just to rub up against strangers
And I did feel like coming
but I also felt like crying
And it doesn't seem so worth it right now"

"Taking your time
You won't be rushed, you'll move at your own pace

Your heart was in the right place
And when you look back on this
You'll think about what a good time it was
You make me happy
When lately it seems nothing ever does"

"I am a prisoner in the sunlight
You are my cellmate in the darkness
There's a box full of mix tapes with titles you came up with
They can show us where we came from but not how to get back there
Listening to the songs can't heal my broken fingers it's just weight for the Anchor to keep your ship here"

Track 9 from Martha Wainwright
Length: 00:03:14
Year: 2005
Track Description:
Something about listening to Martha sing "bloody mother fucking asshole" in that beautiful voice of her's over and over makes me giggle. Aside from that this is a really great song that is supposed to be about her anger towards her father, Loudon Wainwright III, for being kind of a deadbeat. A talented deadbeat, but a deadbeat none-the-less.
