[ Playlist ] This Charming Man

o1.Pet Shop Boys || West End Girls. Sometimes you're better off dead/There's a gun in your hand and it's pointing at your head/You think you're mad, too unstable/Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables/In a restaurant in a West End town/Call the police! There's a madman around!/Running down underground/To a dive bar in a West End town.
o2.Vienna Teng || Unwritten Letter # 1. Nightfall we're brushing past your town/Destination not you my one/The driver doesn't know way down/How deep these bright-eyed feelings run/I've no intention of confessing today/I need to make distance a while/But miles don't make your image fade/They don't erase this secret smile.
o3.The Smiths || This Charming Man Punctured bicycle/On a hillside desolate/Will Nature make a man of me yet?/When in this charming car/This charming man/Why pamper life's complexities/When the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?/I would go out tonight/But I haven't got a stitch to wear/This man said "It's gruesome that someone so handsome should care."
o4.Bastille || The Weight of Living, Prt. I There's an albatross around your neck/All the things you've said/And the things you've done/Can you carry it with no regrets/Can you stand the person you've become/Ooh there's a light/Your Albatross, let it go, let it go/Your albatross shoot it down, shoot it down/When you just can't shake/The heavy weight of living.
o5.Phoenix || If I Ever Feel Better They say an end can be a start/Feels like I've been buried yet I'm still alive/It's like a bad day that never ends/I feel the chaos around me/A thing I don't try to deny/I'd better learn to accept that/There are things in my life I can't control/They say love ain't nothing but a sore/I don't even know what love is/Too many tears have had to fall/Don't you know I'm so tired of it all?
o6.Louis Armstrong || I Only Have Eyes for You I don't know if we're in a garden/Or on a crowded avenue/You are here, so am I/Maybe millions of people go by/But they all disappear from view/And I only have eyes for you/Yeah, are the stars out tonight?/I don't know if it's cloudy or bright/'Cause I only have eyes for you, dear.
o7.Arctic Monkeys || Do I Wanna Know? So have you got the guts?/Been wondering if your heart's still open and if so I wanna know what time it shuts/Simmer down and pucker up/I'm sorry to interrupt. It's just I'm constantly on the cusp of trying to kiss you/I don't know if you feel the same as I do/But we could be together if you wanted to/Do I wanna know?/If this feeling flows both ways?/Sad to see you go/Was sort of hoping that you'd stay/Baby we both know/That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can't say tomorrow day.
o9.Coldplay || Cemeteries of London At night they would go walking 'till the breaking of the day/The morning is for sleeping/Through the dark streets, they go searching, to see God in their own way/Save the nighttime for your weeping/Your weeping.
1o.Bastille || Daniel in the Den Moving along at a pace unknown to man/Go go go go go go/And you thought the lions were bad/Well they tried to kill my brothers/And for every king that died/Oh they would crown another/And it's harder than you think/Telling dreams from one another/And you thought the lions were bad/Well they tried to kill my brothers.
11.Billie Holiday || That Ole Devil Called Love It's that sly ole sun of a gun again/He keeps telling me that I'm the lucky one again/But I still have that ring/Still have those tears/And those rocks in my heart/Suppose I didn't stay and ran away, wouldn't play/That devil what a potion he would brew/He'd follow me around/Build me up, tear me down/Till I'd be so bewildered/I wouldn't know what to do.
12.Death Cab for Cutie || Black Sun There is an answer in a question/And there is hope within despair/And there is beauty in a failure/And there are depths beyond compare/There is a role of a lifetime/And there's a song yet to be sung/And there's a dumpster in the driveway/Of all the plans that came undone/How could something so fair/Be so cruel?/When this black sun revolved/Around you.
13.Leonard Cohen || Take This Waltz And I'll dance with you in Vienna/I'll be wearing a river's disguise/The hyacinth wild on my shoulder/My mouth on the dew of your thighs/And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook/With the photographs there, and the moss/And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty/My cheap violin and my cross/And you'll carry me down on your dancing/To the pools that you lift on your wrist/Oh my love, Oh my love/Take this waltz, take this waltz/It's yours now. It's all that there is.
14.The Smiths || Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want Good times for a change/See, the luck I've had can make a good man turn bad/So please please please/Let me, let me, let me/Let me get what I want this time.
