Sunday Downloads: A Week In Music

In celebration of my explosive writing this last week on my MS and running with it like my ass is on fire, I'm doing a week long tribute to a few of the songs on my playlist.

Some you may know, others might be new to you.  ALL of them represent some scene in my new manuscript. First up is "We Are Young" by Fun..   I’m ashamed to admit I just discovered it two weeks ago. (I pride myself on discovering music years ahead of the trend.)  This is one of those songs like Journey, when it comes on the radio you sing the chorus at the top of your lungs.  (Trust me, listen to it a couple of times and you will be bellowing too.)

The lyrics in the intro are shocking but really good.  Personally, I hate the video.  Not what I wanted.  You be the judge.



"We Are Young"


Give me a second I,
I need to get my story straight
My friend's are in the bathroom getting higher than the empire state
My lover he is waiting for me just across the bar
My seat's been taken by some sunglasses asking about a scar, and

I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you're trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
Though holes in my apologies
I'm trying hard to take it back

So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home

Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun
Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight
Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight
Carry me home tonight

The angels never arrived but I can hear the choir
So will someone come and carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

We are young

Tonight
We are young
So let's set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I'll carry you home tonight

  1. YESSS FUN. You really, REALLY must check out Aim and Ignite, their first album. There's not a single song on there I don't love.

    Some Nights is good too, on the whole - if you haven't listened to "Some Nights" (the song) or "Carry On" or "All Alone," you really must. ^_^
