    now if you ladies were blackbirds,
    if you ladies were thrushes,
    i’d lie there for hours
    in the cold, chilly marshes.

    if you ladies were squirrels with high, bushy tails,
    i’d fill up my shotgun
    with rock salt and nails.

    a man’s heart is his own

    and only he can break it

    i’d start all over alone

    if only i could take it

    new music needed!

    dear tumblr friends,

    what new music are you listening to?
    who are we missing out on?
    who rips your heart out?
    who makes you want to sing along?
    who slays you?
    who makes you obsess?

    banjo appreciated, of course, but not required. ;)

    got on a lucky one,
    came in eighteen to one -
    i’ve got a feeling
    this year’s for me and you,
    so happy christmas,
    i love you, baby,
    i can see a better time
    when all our dreams come true.

    "i had a really hard earned - ya know, my 20s, the fact that i survived my 20s is a miracle. and i believe that wholeheartedly, that there’s genuinely no reason i can think of that i should be standing, er, sitting here right now, because i did everything to go the other direction. when i hit 30 for some reason it seemed to give me permission to relax a little bit." - justin townes earle
