TITLE OF MIX: It will all work out eventually
Comments about your mix: This is probably the cd I would take with me on a road trip (which sort of explains the cover art), or just take with me while driving, or listen to when I'm at home alone and it's pouring outside. It's a cd for those people who want to leave everything behind, but cannot let go. It is for those who feel homesick for a place they have yet to find and it is also for those who lost hope, but aren't hopeless.
Recommended to: Fans of Colin Hay, Tom Petty, Simon & Garfunkel, The Velvet Underground, Joseph Arthur, Cat Stevens, Patrick Park, Nick Drake [...]

01. Colin Hay - Waiting for My Real Life to Begin
Any minute now, my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
I'll stand on the bow, feel the waves come crashing
Come crashing down, down, down, on me

And you say, be still my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in
But don't you understand
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

When I awoke today, suddenly nothing happened
But in my dreams, I slew the dragon
And down this beaten path, and up this cobbled lane
I'm walking in my old footsteps, once again
And you say, just be here now
Forget about the past, your mask is wearing thin
Let me throw one more dice
I know that I can win
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

02. Simon & Garfunkel – Bookends
Time it was and what a time it was it was
A time of innocence a time of confidences

Long ago it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you

03. Tom Petty - Square One
Had to find some higher ground
Had some fear to get around
You can't say what you don't know
Later on will work no more
Last time though I hid my tracks
So well I could not get back
Yeah my way was hard to find
Can't sell your soul for peace of mind

Square one, my slate is clear
Rest your head on me my dear
It took a world of trouble, it took a world of tears
It took a long time to get back here

Try so hard to stand alone
Struggle to see past my nose
Always had more dogs than bones
I could never wear those clothes
It's a dark victory
You won and you also lost

04. Cat Stevens - Wild World
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
and I'll always remember you like a child

05. The Velvet Underground - Sweet Jane
And, everyone who ever had a heart
They wouldn't turn around and break it
And anyone who ever played a part
Oh wouldn't turn around and hate it

06. The Band - The Weight
I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown"
She said, "I gotta go, but my friend can stick around"

07. Joseph Arthur - Honey and the Moon
But right now
Everything is turning blue
And right now
The sun is trying to kill the moon
And right now
I wish I could follow you
To the shores of freedom
Where no one lives

08. Cat Stevens - The Wind
I let my music take me where my heart wants to go

09. Nick Drake - From the Morning
A day once dawned, and it was beautiful
A day once dawned from the ground
Then the night she fell
And the air was beautiful
The night she fell all around.

So look see the days
The endless coloured ways
And go play the game that you learnt
From the morning.

And now we rise
And we are everywhere
And now we rise from the ground

10. The Chambers Brothers - Time Has Come Today
Time has come today
Young hearts can go their way
Can't put it off another day
I don't care what others say

11. Eastmountainsouth - Hard Times (Come Again No More)
Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears
While we all sup sorrow with the poor
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears
Oh, hard times come again no more

12. Simon & Garfunkel - The Only Living Boy in New York
I've got nothing to do today but smile

13. The Velvet Underground - Ride into the Sun
Looking for another place
Somewhere else to be
Looking for another chance
To ride into the sun

14. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - It'll All Work Out
It never goes away, but it all works out

15. Patrick Park - Something Pretty
Here I am, where I’ve been
I’ve walked a hundred miles in tobacco skin,
And my clothes are worn & gritty.
And I know ugliness,
Now show me something pretty.
I was a dumb punk kid with nothing to lose
And too much weight for walking shoes.
I could have died from being boring.
As for loneliness,
She greets me every morning.

16. Colin Hay - Beautiful World
My my my it’s a beautiful world
I like driving in my car
Roll the top down sometimes I travel quite far
Drive to the ocean stare up at the stars
I like driving in my car

17. Foo Fighters - Times Like These (acoustic)
It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

18. Coldplay - Don't Panic
And we live in a beautiful world
Yeah we do, yeah we do

19. Vonda Shepard – Maryland
I've been thinking
I've been thinking, I've been thinking too much
I just want to live now for a little while
And cast my dreams to the wind

20. Styx - Come Sail Away
I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on
