Latest Obsession

About a year ago, I happened to turn on x96 at a time when they were playing every song from Ingrid Michaelson's album Girls and Boys.  Her music is sweet and her lyrics can be quite profound and tender.  It seems that lately, any time I hear a song I like, it is Ingrid.  Here are some of my favorites (and by favorites I mean I listen to them on repeat at least three times a day each...) along with my favorite lines: 

Be Ok: I'm a gallery of broken hearts; I'm beyond repair, let me be; And give me back my broken parts

The Way I Am: Cuz I love the way you say good morning; And you take me the way I am

Far Away: He will take care of me, he will smell like the sea, And close to my heart he'll always stay

You and I: Well you might be a bit confused; And you might be a little bit bruised; But baby how we spoon like no one else; So I will help you read those books; If you will soothe my worried looks; And we will put the lonesome on the shelf

Enjoy :)
