    “I am done with my graceless heart
    So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart”
    Florence And The Machine “Shake It Out”

  2. Herma

    “My beloved monster and me, we go everywhere together” from ‘my beloved monster’, by Eels. A song I listened to a lot around the time that my daughter was born. She was a premature baby and had had many bumps on the road since then. We literally went everywhere together, still do, actually. She is now eight, and loves the song. Not because of the emotional memories that come along with it, but because it’s on the soundtrack of her favourite movie; Shrek 1!

    And the woman in the man

    Peter Gabriel

    Hahaha, I’ve always loved this song so much, my dad used to sing it for me. I love how they sing ‘et cetera’ because there is just too much to say, words are not enough to express love sometimes 🙂
