Il est trop tard.

If I set this playlist on shuffle, and grab a sentence or two from every song it plays, would it somehow tell a story? What would the story tell? Would you understand it the way I do?

1. Pourtant pas contre l’amour je s’rais même plutôt pour… mais c’est pas pour autant qu’il faut qu’on s’attache et qu’on s’empoisonne avec une fleche qui nous illusionne.

33. We’re doing fine, we’re doing nothing at all. My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me, so won’t you kill me so I die happy? My heart is yours to fill or burst, to break or bury or wear as jewelry, whichever you prefer. Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember. I’ll always remember the sound of the stereo, the dim of the soft lights, the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers, and the time on the clock when we realized it’s so late. And this walk that we shared together, and the streets were wet, and the gate was locked so I jumped it and I let you in and you stood at your door with your hands on my waist and you kissed me like you meant it, and I knew that you meant it.
(Hands Down, Dashboard Confessional)

(Where Do You Go To My Lovely, Peter Sarstedt)

38. We didn’t start the fire, it was always burning since the world’s been turning.
(We Didn’t Start the Fire, Billy Joel)

39. Alors c’est grave, ca se bouscule dans ma tête dopé à l’effet de plaire. C’est pas vraiment la fête pourtant j’ai l’air de lui plaire. Qu’ai-je fait au bon dieu pour être fidèle à cet aveu?
(Belle Demoiselle, Christophe Maé)

40. You and I got something but it’s all and then it’s nothing to me, and I got my defenses when it comes through your intentions for me… And I want to get free, talk to me. I can feel you falling and I wanted to be all you need.

How Great is Our God — Chris Tomlin

Another powerful song I first heard last week during camp (I know, right? Where have I been??)

The splendor of a King,
clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice
He wraps himself in light,
and darkness tries to hide
it trembles at his voice,
trembles at his voice

How great is our God,
sing with me
How great is our God,
and all will see
How great
How great is our God

And age to age He stands
and time is in His Hands
Beginning and the End,
Beginning and the End
The Godhead, three in one
Father, Spirit, Son
the Lion and the Lamb,
the Lion and the Lamb

How great is our God,
sing with me
How great is our God,
and all will see
How great,
How great is our God

Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
how great is our God
Name above all names
you are worthy of all praise
and my heart will sing
how great is our God

How great is our God,
Sing with me
How great is our God,
and all will see
How great,
How great is our God

How great is our God,
Sing with me
How great is our God,
and all will see
How great,
How great is our God
How great is our God,
Sing with me
How great is our God,
and all will see
How great,
How great is our God
