Lyrics: “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen

I get up in the evening and I ain’t got nothing to say
I come home in the morning, I go to bed feelin’ the same way
I ain’t nothing but tired, man I’m just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can’t start a fire, you can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Message just keep getting clearer, radio’s on and I’m moving ’round my place
I check my look in the mirror, I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man, I ain’t getting nowhere, I’m just living in a dump like this
There’s something happening somewhere, baby I just know that there is

You can’t start a fire, you can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark

You sit around getting older, there’s a joke here somewhere and it’s on me
I’ll shake this world off my shoulders, come on baby this laugh’s on me

Stay on the streets of this town and they’ll be carving you up alright
They say you gotta stay hungry, hey baby, I’m just about starving tonight
I’m dying for some action, I’m sick of sitting ’round here tryin’ to write this book
I need a love reaction, come on now baby gimme just one look

You can’t start a fire sitting ’round cryin’ over a broken heart
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark
You can’t start a fire worryin’ about your little world fallin’ apart
This gun’s for hire even if we’re just dancing in the dark
Even if we’re just dancing in the dark

Lyrics: “Creep” by Radiohead

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fucking special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I’m not around
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

She’s running out the door, She’s running out
She runs runs runs runs..

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here , I don’t belong here

The Musgraves’ “So Sofia” Named KZME’s Song Of The Week!

The Musgraves So Sofia KZME Portland Radio Song Of The Week

Ah, truth or dare…the game that is oftentimes single-handedly responsible for dangerous felonies, idiotic misdemeanors, and Johnny Knoxville’s career. What many don’t know is that truth or dare is also responsible for The Musgraves’ peppy tune, “So Sofia,” becoming KZME‘s Song Of The Week! The Portland radio station explained on their website:

“Artclectic host Dennise Kowalczyk picked the song, and offers it with a challenge: “I dare you to try to listen to this without dancing.” Go ahead, listen to the song and let us know what your reaction was! (My bet is she’s right – or you’ll at least tap your feet.)”

The station describes “So Sofia” as an “upbeat, good-natured song,” and hopes that they’ll soon venture to the states to rock one of their MAX stations. You can check out the rest of what they have to say here, and be sure to download your copy of The Musgraves’ debut album, “You That Way I This Way,” for the sale price of $5, here!

“So Sofia” Lyrics:

“So Sofia sing, (Sofia, Sofia),
So happy, so tragic, so faultless now,
So Sofia sing (Sofia, Sofia),
So happy, so tragic, so faultless now.

So Sofia, with your dirty fingernails,
So Sofia, with your tattoo nightingales,
So Sofia, let your black hair tumble down,
So Sofia, don’t me ever catch you frown.

Sing it to me one more time,
Sing it to me line for line.

So Sofia sing. Oh oh oh oh!

So Sofia, with your cartoon cracker ring,
So Sofia, won’t you sing ‘these foolish things’,
So Sofia, they can’t stop you here tonight,
So Sofia, take a bow in the stage light.

Sing it to me one more time,
Sing it to me line for line.

So Sofia sing,
So happy, so tragic, so faultless now,
So Sofia sing,
So happy, so tragic, so faultless now.

So Sofia sing. Oh oh oh oh!
So Sofia sing. So Sofia sing. Oh oh oh oh!

So Sofia sing, (Sofia, Sofia),
So happy, so tragic, so faultless now,
So Sofia sing (Sofia, Sofia),
So happy, so tragic, so faultless now.

So Sofia sing, Sofia, Sofia,
So Sofia sing, Sofia, Sofia,
So Sofia sing, Sofia, Sofia,
So Sofia sing, Sofia, Sofia…”
