if: you are a cliffhanger ending 

download@mediafire | listen@8tracks

something to listen to while plundering all dat booty (heh) in the ladystuck archive, perhaps? :3

caveat lector!! (or… auditor, i guess?) i realize some of these song choices are a bit…. unconventional haha (especially the last track!). i will happily explain the reasoning, such as it is, behind any of them to anyone who cares to ask. 

liner notes behind the cut—

1. Metric - Gold Guns Girls

I remember when we were gambling to win
Everybody else said, “Better luck next time”
I don’t wanna bend like the bad girls bend
I just wanna be a friend
Why you givin’ me a hard time?

Is it ever gonna be enough?

2. Lights - Toes

Oh, you capture my attention
I’m anticipating
I’m watching and waiting
For you to make your move
Got me on my toes

3. Stars - Death to Death

I am destroyer, I am lover
I am destroyer, I am lover
Why love one thing and not the other?

4. Lykke Li - Complaint Department

Me, oh my, you thought you had something strong
Me, oh my, it turned out that you were wrong
Me, oh my, your luck seems to be no more
Frightened to get up, fallen to the floor
Me, oh my, you say what you’re going through
Funny you forgot ‘cause that’s the same thing from you

If you wanna complain
If you wanna complain
I’m not the complaint department 

5. Class Actress - Journal of Ardency

You think I’m living it
Living it, living it, living it up
In the spotlight
You think I’m living it
Living it, living it, living it up
It’s a lie, lie

I don’t care what you say
I just care what you do
When the time’s right

6. St. Vincent - Actor Out of Work

You’re a boxer in the ring
With brass knuckles underneath
You’re the curses through my teeth
You’re the laughter, you’re the obscene

I think I love you, I think I’m mad 

7. Metric - Combat Baby

I want to be wrong but
No one here wants to fight me like you do

Combat baby, come back baby
Fight off the lethargy
Don’t go quietly
Combat baby
Say you’re never gonna give up easy
Combat baby, come back

I tried to be so nice
Who gets it good? 

8. Camera Obscura - If Looks Could Kill

Tell me where it all went wrong
Maybe I can make it better

9. Rilo Kiley - The Execution of All Things

And lastly, you’re all alone, with nothing left but sleep
But sleep never comes to you
It’s just the guilt and forever wakefulness of the weak
It’s just you and me…

The execution of all things, the execution of all things

10. Broken Social Scene - Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Girl

Used to be one of the rotten ones
And I liked you for that
Now you’re all gone, got your makeup on
And you’re not coming back
Can’t you come back? 

Park that car, drop that phone
Sleep on the floor, dream about me 

11. Regina Spektor - Samson

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met
