Die Alone

I got this tip from Zach Braff about an singer/songwriter by the name of Ingrid Michaelson. I bought her album Girls and Boys on iTunes and so far I adore the first track Die Alone.

“I woke up this morning, a funny taste in my head.
Spackled some butter over my whole grain bread.
Something tastes different, maybe it’s my tongue.
Something tastes different, suddenly I’m not so young.

I’m just a stranger, even to myself.
A re-arranger of the proverbial bookshelf.
Don’t be a fool girl, tell him you love him.
Don’t be a fool girl, you’re not above him.

I never thought I could love anyone but myself.
Now I know I can’t love anyone but you.
You make me think that maybe I won’t die alone.
Maybe I won’t die alone.

Kiss the boys as they walk by, call me their baby.
But little do they know, I’m just a maybe.
Maybe my baby will be the one to leave me sore.
Maybe my baby will settle the score.

I never thought I could love anyone but myself.
Now I know I can’t love anyone but you.
You make me think that maybe I won’t die alone.
Maybe I won’t die alone.

What have I become?
Something soft and really quite dumb.
Because I’ve fallen, oh, ‘cuz I’ve fall-fallen, oh ‘cuz I’ve fall-fall-fallen
So far away from the place where I started from.

I never thought I could love anyone.
I never thought I could love anyone.
I never thought I could love anyone,
But you, but you, but you, but you, but you
But you make me think that maybe I won’t die alone.
Maybe I won’t die alone.”

Oh and, it’s not like Zach Braff called me up and gave me the tips. It’s not like we talk on the phone every now and then, or even send eachother e-mails. I would guess he doesn’t even know that I exist … Anyway. I got the tip from his blog.
