Noah and the Whale

I'm still figuring out which songs I love by this band, but this one just really stood out to me.



It's the first day of spring
And my life is starting over again
The trees grow, the river flows
And its water will wash away my sins
For I do believe that everyone has one chance
To fuck up their lives
But like a cut down tree, I will rise again
And I'll be bigger and stronger than ever before

For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back
For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back

There's a hope in every new seed
And every flower that grows upon the earth
And though I love you, and you know that
Well I no longer know what that's worth
But I'll come back to you in a year or so
And I'll rebuild, be ready to become
Oh the person, you believed in
Oh the person, that you used to love

For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back
For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back

Oxford





I really love Oxford and all the people who shared it with me in the Spring of 2008.

Children's Books

The story of a little girl who lives across the street from Emily Dickinson

Picking blueberries with bears around
Opal Whiteley... her cow's name is Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

These are just a few of my favorites. Barbara Cooney seems to be a recurring theme in my favorites though :)
