sometimes in the morning i am petrified and can’t move, awake but cannot open my eyes. and the weight is crushing down on my lungs, i know i can’t breathe and hope someone will save me this time. and your mother’s still calling you insane and high, swearing it’s different this time. and you tell her to give in to the demons that possess her, and that god never blessed her insides. then you hang up the phone and feel badly for upsetting things, crawl back into bed to dream of a time when your heart was open wide and you loved things just because, like the sick and the dying.
and sometimes when you’re on you’re really fucking on and your friends they sing along and they love you. but the lows are so extreme that the good seems fucking cheap, and it teases you for weeks in its absence. but you’ll fight and you’ll make it through. you’ll fake it if you have to. and you’ll show up for class with a smile. you’ll be better and you’ll be smarter and more grown up and a better daughter or son and a real good friend. and you’ll be awake. you’ll be alert. you’ll be positive though it hurts. and you’ll laugh and embrace all your friends. and you’ll be a real good listener. you’ll be honest. you’ll be brave. you’ll be handsome. and you’ll be beautiful. you’ll be happy.
The best song ever written.
An unprecedented look at the ten year history of The Postal Service, from the initial collaborations that created 2003’s sleeper classic Give Up, through to their recent sold out show at New York’s Barclays Arena. The Creators Project provides an intimate look at the band and its process: from the dressing room to the digital (re)construction of the music to the moment the band takes the stage.

Studio version of Lana Del Rey’s cover for Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana.
Beautiful approach to the song <3 love it.
Thank you for sharing this. Old music New music. LOVE.
“We are loving this cover, which reminds us how just how badass and influencial both Bowie and The Smashing Pumpkins truly are.
Frontman Billy Corgan captivates his audience as expertly as ever, and the current lineup complements him nicely. With Mike Byrne smashing it on the drums, this refreshing cover is one you can, and will, happily rock out to.”
