Leighton Antelman lead singer of Lydia and I 2013
I’m posting this because I’ve been listening to all their albums lately and I haven’t in about two years. It feels nice playing the CDs on my stereo. I’m enjoying every note and word. Their albums meant so much to me. They kept me going through high school. I’m going to post my favorite song from each of their albums below.
Album: This December; It’s One More and I’m Free
Song: Always Move Fast
“So I guess I’ll just stay for a while I guess you knew just from how I smiled.
Because there’s no hurry more like fucking nursery or a beautiful trail.
Just remember always move fast.”
Song: A Fine Evening For A Rouge
“Don’t you ever get lonely?
Yeah, don’t you ever get lonely?
‘Cause it’s no better for me
I still cannot breathe.”
EP: Hotel Sessions
Song: Her and Haley
“So now it’s obvious I’ve learned, let’s see your bet.
Her favorite place to sit, to forget.
Cause no one watched or would care.”
“I can’t seem to kill my assailants, no, no
They’re changing faces
You’re not the world baby, I’ll be fine
I will be sleeping it off,
just, just, just like you promised.”
Album: Paint It Golden
“‘Cause when I’m dead and I’m gone
Just burn me up to the sun
I got a couple more hits here
I want nothing but you, dear
Yeah, when I stare at the ceiling
Five o’clock in the morning
I got one thing that’s on my mind
Got so much to do before we die
Yeah if I survive
So live it up kid, live it real good
As you should
We both know the big guns are models
So tell me what keeps you up at night
Keeps you from closing your eyes, yeah
Keeps you alive.”
Album: Acoustics EP
Song: Skin + Bones
“I thought up words to say
I wrote them down for her sake
Never did she ever complain
Yeah she’s seen my worst days.”
Song: Hurry Back Tonight
“Come on come on come on
Here we go again
Come on come on come on
Are you bleeding my bones dry with those bright eyes
So hurry back tonight.”
Album: Devil B Sides Deluxe Edition
Song: Wish You Well
“Nothing I got to do today, yeah I’m 700 miles away
Oh, I think I’d be okay, (if I) if I saw your face, I saw your face
But with a cloudy world and a cigarette
I wish I really knew what I thought of then
If we were meant for this, (and I’ll) I’ll see you soon kid, see you soon kid, let’s go
This is me, this is me, this is me just wishing you well.”
