2AM is my new Midnight


U2| Lemon

Midnight is where the day begins

Lightspeed Champion | Midnight Surprise

Warm nights and the chill
Creeping down my bones
Reminds me I'm alone

Willie Nelson | These Lonely Nights

I just lie awake and weep

The Cure | At Night

I sink in the night

Hawksley Workman | Kissing Girls (You Shouldn't Kiss)

The city sleeps but what time will lovers keep

Tom  Waits | Midnight Lullaby

Stare out at the moon upon the windowsill, and dream...

Elvis Costello | Upon a Veil of Midnight Blue

There hung a crescent moon
To light the view

Cyndi Lauper | I Drove All Night

When the night is cold and dark
No one can move me
The way that you do

Melody Gardot | Goodnite

Close your eyes and just sleep tight

Grant Lee Phillips | Last Night I Dreamed That Somebody Loved Me

Last night I felt
Real arms around me
No hope, no harm
Just another false alarm

Amanda Palmer | Have To Drive

I suffer mornings most of all

kill the butterfly

Singstar + Leonard Cohen


Do you know how excited I was when I saw this in the singstar store?

+ "SingStar Vol.2" for PlayStation 3 - Ad
+ Song Meanings: Leonard Cohen - Famous Blue Raincoat

The trouble with ["Famous Blue Raincoat"] is that I've forgotten the actual triangle. Whether it was my own . . . of course. I always felt that there was an invisible male seducing the woman I was with; now, whether this one was incarnate or merely imaginary I don't remember. I've always had the sense that either I've been that figure in relation to another couple or there'd been a figure like that in relation to my marriage. I don't quite remember (but I did have this feeling that there was always a third party, sometimes me, sometimes another man, sometimes another woman).
