i forgot how excited i was for mockingjay but listening to yellow flicker beat reminded me and now i’m so pumped again i cant stay still
and we all know who Rupert looks like…
i need to stop imagining scenarios in my head that have a -2% chance of actually happening it’s becoming a problem
Anyone else think that Love Story iheatradio has a bit of a Lorde feel to it?
1989 secret sessions
i really love lorde and taylor
*prays Taylor has a secret session in London and my small Taylor blog runner self gets a invite*
*thinks about how I want to pose with taylor when I meet her and then remembers that I’m not*
I get the one about you being a vampire but Swift, what are you doing here???
I am trapped inside an invisible box, obv.

YELLOW FLICKER BEAT, AND AN ANNIVERSARY
i’m sitting up in bed, moving through desert halfway between utah and las vegas. yesterday was our ninth show in eleven days. every night, after i play, and say hi, and take pictures, and i walk up the stairs and we go on our way, i set up in this little bed office. i work from midnight until late on the soundtrack, singing into my computer, listening to demos and final mixes. my bus sleeps. we are almost at the end, the point where this soundtrack gets taken away from me and becomes something real. i’m reminded of this day last year, when pure heroine came out in this country. the feeling of something very solitary that i had worked on spinning around and around further away from me, becoming someone else’s, everyone’s. the past year of my life has seen everything around me multiply in size and number - the stamps on my passport, the number of people i have to ask before i ride on the ferris wheel after my set at a festival, the decibels that follow me when i walk around in public. the other thing that’s grown is me - my fitness, my mental stamina, my ability to think clearly and make decisions - but most of all, my capacity for love. the thousands upon thousands (wait, millions(?!!)) of you who bought pure heroine truly feel like friends to me - it’s no coincidence i’m posting this note here, where i feel the most happy and safe online, the place where i laugh the most and where every day, i feel like people get me. i never knew i could feel such a warm heart for this many people at once. thankyou for hearing about me all those months ago, and sticking around. thankyou for being here.
now, about this song - yellow flicker beat. it’s my first offering from what i hope will be a soundtrack you love. it’s my attempt at getting inside her head, katniss’. i hope you like it.
YELLOW FLICKER BEAT LYRICS
i’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
and the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold
my blood is a flood
of rubies, precious stones
it keeps my veins hot
the fire’s found a home in me
i move through town i’m quiet like a fight
and my necklace is of rope, i tie it and untie
people talk to me, but nothing ever hits home
people talk to me and all the voices just burn holes
I’M DONE WITH IT (oooooh)
this is the start
of how it all ends
they used to shout my name now they whisper it
i’m speeding up
and this is the red orange yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
we’re at the start
the colours disappear
i never watch the stars, there’s so much down here
so i just try
keep up with the red orange yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
i dream all year but they’re not the sweet kind
and the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time
people talk to me, i’m slipping out of reach now
people talk to me and all their faces blur
but i got my fingers laced together and i made a little prison and I’m locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me
"I’m a princess cut from marble/Smoother than a storm // and the scars that mark my body/they’re silver and gold."
