Stars, “Elevator Love Letter”

I’m so hard for a rich girl
My heels are high
My eyes cast low
And I don’t know how to love
I get too tired after midday, lately
I take it out on my good friends
But the worst stays in
Or where would I begin?
My office glows all night long
It’s a nuclear show and the stars are gone
Elevator, elevator
Take me home

I’m so hard for the rich girl
Her heels so high
And my hopes so low
’cause I don’t know how to love
I’ll take her home after midnight
And if she likes, I’ll tell her lies
Of how we’ll fall in love by the morning
I don’t think she’ll know
That I’m saying goodbye…

My office glows all night long
It’s a nuclear show and the stars are gone
Elevator, elevator
Take me home

My office glows all night long
It’s a nuclear show and the stars are gone
Elevator, elevator
Take me home

Don’t go, say you’ll stay
Spend a lazy sunday in my arms
I won’t take anything away
Don’t go, say you’ll stay
Spend a lazy sunday in my arms
Don’t take anything away

José Gonzalez’s cover of The Knife’s “Heartbeats,” featured in a Sony ad

One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise made
Four hands and then away
Both under influence
We had divine sense
To know what to say
Mind is a razor blade

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

One night of magic rush
The start, a simple touch
One night to push and scream
And then relief
Ten days of perfect tunes
The colors red and blue
We had a promise made
We were in love

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough

And you
You knew the hand of the devil
And you
Kept us awake with wolves’ teeth
Sharing different heartbeats
In one night

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
Send “Heartbeats” Ringtone to your Cell

  1. Both beautiful songs (which were new to me). Thanks for sharing! The first one is so sad, the second one is a very effective video because I couldn’t take my eyes off the bouncing balls! I love it when the frog appears and jumps too! The music is quite lulling so it doesn’t distract from the visuals. So nice to hear your taste in music! 🙂

    • I am glad you enjoyed them! I find it is so hard to find great music when there is so much to sift through online and the radio tends to overlook these independent artists.

      I really love the JG video since is captures the landscape of SF – the “abrupt grade shift” of the downward hills, the sand-colored buildings, the striking views of the ocean at the bottom of the hills. The animals do stand out – the dog watching from the window, and the flyer about the missing cat.
