(y) - "Well, doesn't everyone have one of those day?"
(m) - "Yeah, well, now, picture that you're constantly living that day. Picture that you can't even pay for your gas without bawling your eyes out, because you know that you're never going to amount to anything in life."
(y) - "Why would paying for gas make you feel that way?"
(m) - "Because I paid for it in fucking pennies. All one dollar and sixteen cents of it."

Track 10 from Among My Swan
Length: 00:03:58
Year: 1996
Track Description:
I wasn't the only one going up against my own personal demons; a few friends of mine were, too (still are). I felt not only like I had to put my problems on standby, but like I was becoming the Mother Mary of the group - comforting, listening, never once judging, and always loving. It hurts to feel like you've got stress tenfold, because you're more worried about the lives of others. It made me feel like I wasn't important enough to care about myself, because I was too wrapped up in the desire to make everyone else happy.

Track 2 from New Moon
Length: 00:03:42
Year: 2007
Track Description:
I found myself listening to this song repeatedly, trying to salvage some faith in my heart. When you're under pressure, it's easy to want to be loved in the eyes of God. You feel like you're alone, and the only one who will take you back is the one you turned from so many times.

Track 9 from Velvet Underground & Nico
Length: 00:02:06
Year: 1966
Track Description:
I chose this song for two reasons.
1. I am falling for a gem of a boy, and he has been having a rough time. One day, I sent him this lyrics, and now everytime I listen to this song, it gives me hope. Maybe one day someone will be my mirror, and let me know that it's going to be okay. God, I hope so.
2. Nico had difficulty recording this song. She is known for her very masculine, raspy voice. Lou and the boys wanted her to sing the song quite delicately, and made her sing it repeatedly until she got it right. Through her frustration, she finally came though, and created a beautiful song. I am using that as my inspiration. I can get through this, too.

Track 6 from Making Moves
Length: 00:03:22
Year: 2005
Track Description:
When I feel completely low, I just rest my head among the blades of grass I wish to be part of. It's always at night when I get this feeling. The night-time can be your best friend if you have a purpose, but once you're off of that leash, you're fucked.

Track Description:
As overwhelmed as I am lately, this song just adds to the already heightened sense of awkward belonging. I am a tiny piece of this universe. I could leave, and never be missed.

Track Description:
I am so self loathing, and for a reason! I am not getting this affection I put into others reciprocated. I am ashamed for how I feel towards others. The time and care I put into a relationship - with anyone.

Track 11 from Delicious
Length: 00:04:42
Year: 1997
Track Description:
Cake Like ends their album Delicious with this song, just as I will end my mix with this song. It's haunting sound and lyrics with a whymsical, yet sad tone leave me with a feeling of being trapped in a house of mirrors. Every turn leads me to a new "me" that under ordinary circumstances, I would have never seen before.
