Change in Tune

Lyrics are starting to lean towards sticking together, forgiveness, and “home”.

In Fun’s We Are Young, they sing, “I know you’re trying to forget…I’m trying hard to take it back…I’ll carry you home.” In Phillip Phillips’ Home, he sings, “Don’t pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear….just know you’re not alone, cause I’m going to make this place your home.” Florence and the Machine sings in Shake it Out, “Every demon wants his pound of flesh…and it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back, so shake him off.” Mumford and Son’s I Will Wait sings, “You forgave and I won’t forget …now in some way, shake the excess.”

In Gym Class Heroes’ Stereo Hearts, Travie McCoy sings, “Holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts,” and in A** Back Home (Panic City Remix by Gym Class Heroes Featuring Neon Hitch) they sing, “We put the us in trust, baby.” In Justin Bieber’s As Long As You Love Me, Big Sean sings, “Us, trust…a couple of things I can’t spell without ‘u’,” and continues with, “The grass ain’t always greener on the other side, It’s green where you water it. So I know we got issues baby, but I’d rather work on this with you than to go ahead and start with someone new.”

I ended up using some of these songs on a “jukebox musical” compilation I made. Zac Parsons has a great review of Fun: Some Nights that you might also find interesting.
