Songs for Seniors

Here are ten songs from my current playlist that hit me right in my senior-year heart.

(It probably says something about me that I tend to relate love songs to my relationship with my school.)

1) Ramble On – Led Zeppelin

Leaves are fallin’ all around,
Time I was on my way.
Thanks to you, I’m much obliged,
Such a pleasant stay.

2) Promise to the Moon – Jason Webley

I’m ready now
To let myself change colors with the leaves
And let the wind come shake me down.

3) I’m Letting Go – Josh Woodward

I’ve been waitin on a free ride ticket
To a seaside thicket
On the edge of Puget Sound.

4) Brothers on a Hotel Bed – Death Cab for Cutie

You may tire of me,
As our December sun is setting,
‘Cause I’m not who I used to be.

5) Cups – Anna Kendrick

You’re gonna miss me by my hair, you’re gonna miss me everywhere,
Oh you’re sure gonna miss me when I’m gone.

6) Love Love Love – The Mountain Goats

Some things you do for money, and some you do for fun,
But the things you do for love are gonna come back to you, one by one.

7) Balloons – Julia Nunes

It’s time to leave while my eyes are still dry.
It’s time to leave while my head is held high….
You’re like nothing I have found or will find.

8) Ways To Go – Grouplove

Been working like a dog, I turned all my dreams off.
I didn’t know my name, I didn’t know my name.
I’ve got a little bit longer, I’ve got a ways to go.

9) I’ll Fly Away – Alison Krauss / Gillian Welch

Just a few more weary days and then, I’ll fly away…
I’ll fly away, fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away in the morning.

10) At Least It Was Here – The 88

Give me some rope, tie me to dream.
Give me the hope to run out of steam.
Somebody said, it could be here.
We could be roped up, tied up, dead in a year.
But I love you more than words can say.
I can’t count the reasons I should stay.
One by one they all just fade away,
But I love you more than words can say.
