Tearjerkers

Recommended Posts

"If you just hold in your breath 'til you come back up in full. Hold in your breath 'til you've thought it through you foolish child"

slays me every time

but then there are the "euphoric tearjerkers" that make you cry out of love and appreciation for regina's music and life itself. in this category, nothing gets me more than:

No, this is how it works

You peer inside yourself

You take the things you like

And try to love the things you took

And then you take that love you made

And stick it into some

Someone else's heart

Pumping someone else's blood

And walking arm in arm

You hope it don't get harmed

But even if it does

You'll just do it all again

I don't know if someone already mentioned this one, but

"A Cooler Version" is really heartbreaking:

A cooler version of yourself

A cooler version of your dad

A crueler version in my mind

I pull away when you're inside

I pull away when you're inside

You pull away when you're inside

So young

And drunk

And young

And drunk

I lie down here until I die

I lie down here until I die

I'm so sorry for

Telling stories

I'm so young

And drunk

And young

And drunk

I didn't know it'd be so boring

I fall asleep when you're inside

I fall asleep when you're inside

So young

And drunk

And young

And drunk

I fall asleep when you're inside

I fall asleep when you're inside

(snoring)

A cooler version of myself

A cooler version of my dad

A crueler version in my mind

I pull away when you're inside

I pull away when you're inside

I pull away when you're inside

I pull away when you're inside

I pull away when you're insiiiiii-iiiiiiiiiiiide

Ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide, ide

I'm so young

And drunk

I'm so young

And drunk

I'm so young

And drunk

I'm so young

And drunk

...particularly the "I pull away when you're inside" part, how she sings it, it sounds like she's about to cry too.

I never cry, but there were two times I almost cried. First when I heard Pavlov's Daughter for the first time. Not because it's sad, but because I had never heard anything better than that. It was so nice!

And the second time when I saw her playing Apres Moi. It's weird no one said it before, because the part when she's singing Russian is so beautiful and I saw so much emotions on her face, that I almost started crying.

But most of the time (99%) I'm laughing about her crazy, funny and genius music.
