I'm well versed in how I might be cursed...

Never mind how you've rationed your time
And the battle is underway
Maybe times are gonna change
Don't just hide in the silence behind

What you've really been trying to say
What a skill, baby, aiming to kill me
With words you don't mean

Maybe nobody loved you when you were young
Maybe, boy, when you cry, nobody ever comes
Will you try it once?
Give up the machine gun

One of several gift cards I got for Christmas was an iTunes one. It's alarming how fast I can burn through an iTunes gift card (seconds, really. I mean just a few clicks and poof, no more gift card, but that's another story...). Anyway, one of the things I got was Sara Bareilles' "Kaleidoscope Heart" album. From start to finish it's quickly becoming one of my favorite albums, and Machine Gun is my absolute favorite track. The melody, the lyrics, everything about it is completely amazing. I love how piano driven all her songs are - makes me want to hurry up and get serious about buying one for our house.

I love getting iTunes gift cards. My mom gave me one for $15, and once I get it loaded onto my iTunes store, it will be gone like THAT. I have a serious addiction to music.
