Music Monday (Er, Tuesday): The Shuffle Game

So my friend took her playlist, put it on shuffle, and used the first lines of each song to form a poem. I’m stealing her idea. Here’s the monstrosity I’ve created with my own favorites list:

It’s been so long, I’ve been out of my body with you 
You know I said it’s true
I’m waking up to ash and dust 
Try to hear my voice 
Slow hard, dog, wait, down love, black canvas 
I’m coming up only to hold you under 
I’m waking up to ash and dust 
East London’s not a bomb site 
Welcome to your life 
Oh I just wanna take you anywhere that you like 
I don’t like walking around this old and empty house 
I was supposed to do great things 
I had a dream so big and loud 
You’re killing me, kid 
Whatever you do, I do it, too 
Here we are with our backs against the wall 
When life leaves you high and dry 
You’ll never feel happy 
Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine 
It doesn’t hurt me 
Easing out, with my heart 
Well I woke up to the sound of silence 
Some saw the sun, some saw the smoke 
Hope when you take that jump, you don’t feel the fall 
I am my mother’s only one 
Pretty girls come from the ugliest places 
I’m waking up to ash and dust 
I know the time has numbered my days 
I’ve seen the world, done it all, had my cake now 
I’ll keep you safe. 
I apparently have at least three variations of Radioactive on my playlist. Who knew?
