    FRANK OCEAN - BAD RELIGION LYRICS

    I feel in love with this song the first time I heard it. It actually inspired one of my fan fics.
    I was singing that all during work yesterday. Couldn't get it out of my head, and now it's back in my head, good times.

    Shook Ones II by Mobb Deep and everything by CunningLynguists strike me like a firebrick when I listen to them. I have several favorite love songs- one of them being A Song for You by Leon Russell, another being Sea of Love by Phil Phillips and the Twilights. Both are fairly simple but strong. Two of my all time favorite songs are also love songs: Case of You by Joni Mitchell and Take it With Me by Tom Waits. The latter kills me when he sings, "all that you've loved is all you own."
    Case of You is entirely brilliant:

    Quote:
    Just before our love got lost you said
    "I am as constant as a northern star"
    And I said "Constantly in the darkness
    Where's that at?
    If you want me I'll be in the bar"

    On the back of a cartoon coaster
    In the blue TV screen light
    I drew a map of Canada
    Oh Canada
    With your face sketched on it twice
    Oh you're in my blood like holy wine
    You taste so bitter and so sweet

    Oh I could drink a case of you darling
    Still I'd be on my feet
    oh I would still be on my feet

    Oh I am a lonely painter
    I live in a box of paints
    I'm frightened by the devil
    And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid

    I remember that time you told me you said
    "Love is touching souls"
    Surely you touched mine
    'Cause part of you pours out of me
    In these lines from time to time
    Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
    You taste so bitter and so sweet

    Oh I could drink a case of you darling
    And I would still be on my feet
    I would still be on my feet

    I met a woman
    She had a mouth like yours
    She knew your life
    She knew your devils and your deeds
    And she said
    "Go to him, stay with him if you can
    But be prepared to bleed"

    Oh but you are in my blood
    You're my holy wine
    You're so bitter, bitter and so sweet

    Oh, I could drink a case of you darling
    Still I'd be on my feet
    I would still be on my feet
