Saturday! SaturdaySaturdaySaturday. On Saturday I finally get to see Marianas Trench, one of my most favorite bands due to their musicality and lyrics and being an all-around good time. I’ve been binging a little bit, in the middle of putting Kanye West’s discography on repeat in anticipation of “Waves.”  The contrast is a little rough, but energizing through long, grey days nonetheless.

While I’m expecting a total barrage of hooks and harmonies from “Astoria” during this Marianas Trench tour, my fingers are crossed for some special covers and old favorites, perhaps like this “Iris/Good for You” one. It’s a pretty simple transition, nothing fancy, the connection is all in the chords and the sentiment. I could do without the crowds screaming along, but I can’t say I won’t be acting in a similar fashion in four days time.

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am….

Everyone’s around, no words are coming now.
And I can’t find my breath, can we just say the rest with no sound.
And I know this isn’t enough, I still don’t measure up.
And I’m not prepared, sorry is never there when you need it.


And now I do want you to know 

I hold you up above everyone.
And now I do want you to know 

I think you’d be good to me
And I’d be so good to you
.”
