Sarah Oksiuta It was hard to pick a favorite on this one, too. But MJLR won out. So. So. So. Beautiful. So simple yet so captivating. I want to share it with everyone but I don't know if everyone appreciates the mood it would put them in as much as I do. That almost-sad-but-not-actually-sad-because-there's-no-reason-to-be-sad mood. It's so pretty and delicate. I love it. Favorite track: M.J.L.R..

Track Name: Birds
sitting all alone
waiting in a dark room
looking for a light
hoping that it comes soon
living in a lie
praying that it comes true
floating through the sky
forgetting that i lost you

rolling with the wind now
i'm moving but i really dont know how
Track Name: Dream
I dream in color
colors that I've never seen
oh lord, what does that mean for me?

I hear voices
voices I don't recognize
oh lord send me a sign
tell me why?
Track Name: Slow Burn
oh man
why you moving so slow
there's at least a hundred miles to go

oh boy
why you playing so slow
she broke your heart a thousand times before

oh girl
why you dancing so slow
music stopped playing awhile ago

oh star
why you burning so slow
night could be a little brighter you know

it's a slow slow burn
Track Name: Symmetry
take your kite and let it ride the esoteric breeze
fly it higher, ever higher, weightless symmetry

don't you know you're the love of my life
i'll never let go

there's a place where time and space go fishing for some lives
we're just waiting, anticipating, searching for a line
Track Name: M.J.L.R.
honey I don't know
how you want me to feel
How am I supposed to know
cold water surrounds us as we spin around
your little hands holding me tight

we're lying down beside the lake
your little teardrops running down your face
you know my heart you heard its windy chimes
i've been staring at the television screen for a long time

honey i dont know
how you want me to be
how am i supposed to know
lions park in the dark where you broke my heart
my little blue moped takes me home

we're lying down behind the base
your shooting stars they fall right into place
you know my brain you've crawled its tangled vines
i've been staring at the television screen for a long time
