    Beautifully Sad

    A companion track, or B Side, to Mtngirl's Repulsively Attractive thread.

    I start you with this:

    I still call it The Jake.

    "One season per year, the gods open the skies, and releases a white, fluffy, pillow on top of the most forbidding mountain landscapes, allowing people to travel over them with ease and relative abandonment of concern for safety. It's incredible."

    I wonder how much a plane ticket to Japan costs.

    I wonder why nobody looks for those people.

    no idea what your text means, but Gillian Welch's music is pretty much the definition of beautifully sad.

    One of the most beautifully sad songs I've ever heard. Chocolate Genius.

    I've been out walking

    About the things that I forgot to do

    Actually the entire movie is beautifully sad.

    When I was young I spoke like a child, and I saw with a child's eyes
    And an open door was to a girl like the stars are to the sky
    It's funny how the world lives up to all your expectations
    With adventures for the stout of heart, and the lure of the open spaces

    There's 2 lanes running down this road, whichever side you're on
    Accounts for where you want to go, or what you're running from
    Back when darkness overtook me on a blind man's curve

    I relied upon the moon, I relied upon the moon
    I relied upon the moon and Saint Christopher

    Now I've paid my dues cuz I have owed them, but I've paid a price sometimes
    For being such a stubborn woman in such stubborn times
    Now I have run from the arms of lovers, I've run from the eyes of friends
    I have run from the hands of kindness, I've run just because I can

    But now I'm grown and I speak like a woman and I see with a woman's eyes
    And an open door is to me now like the saddest of goodbyes
    It's too late for turning back, I pray for the heart and the nerve

    Okay, now I'm going to have to put up some Tom Waits. It's hard to choose from so many beautiful, sad songs - Georgia Lee, Kentucky Avenue, Soldier's Things - but I'm going to go with this:


    And...
    Don’t give up until.

    People should learn endurance; they should learn to endure the discomforts of heat and cold, hunger and thirst; they should learn to be patient when receiving abuse and scorn; for it is the practice of endurance that quenches the fire of worldly passions which is burning up their bodies.

    A Townes song by the Be Good Tanyas, love this version, and beautifully sad is what it is.
