Thompson Twins – "Hold Me Now" (1983)

"I have a picture pinned to my wall An image of you and of me and we're laughing, we're loving it all Look at our life now, tattered and torn We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears that we cry until dawn Hold me now, warm my heart Stay with me, let loving start, let loving start Hold me now, warm my heart Stay with me, let loving start, let loving start You say I'm a dreamer, we're two of a kind Both of us searching for some perfect world, we know we'll never find So perhaps I should leave here, yeah, yeah go far away But you know that there's no where that I'd rather be Than with you here today Hold me now, warm my heart Stay with me, let loving start, let loving start Hold me now, warm my heart Stay with me, let loving start, let loving start You ask if I love you, well what can I say? You know that I do and if this is just one of those games that we play So I'll sing you a new song, please don't cry anymore And then I'll ask your forgiveness though I don't know Just what I'm asking it for Hold me now, warm my heart Stay with me, let loving start, let loving start Hold me now, warm my heart Stay with me, let loving start, let loving start"

Fitz & the Tantrums – "Merry Go Round" (2013)

One by one, Fitz & the Tantrums' songs are stuck in my head. This one seems appropriate for today… "Spinnin' all my life's like turning 'til the wheels brake Dancin' on the wind of this merry-go-round, oh oh oh Spinnin' all my life's like turning while the wheels shake Dancin' on the thrill of this merry-go-round, oh oh oh"

October Project – "Falling Farther In" (1995)

Happy October! ( … best month of the year! ) "I leave a life behind me, I feel myself begin I'm reaching out to keep you, falling farther in I feel the light inside me, you go beyond my skin I'm reaching out to keep you, falling farther in"
