  Social distancing has been a difficult time for many reasons, but one of the hardest parts has been being away from my significant other. My love language has always been through the sharing of music, so I have been relying on music as a coping method. The sweet lyrics of the love songs in this playlist have consistently brought a smile to my face despite everything. I hope you enjoy the songs, even if you’re not missing someone you love. 


1. Texas Reznikoff – Mitski 



Favorite lyrics: 

You keep your socks on in bed

Keep our hearth warm

“See the trees’ shadows lie in black pools in the lawns”

You’re the breeze in my Austin nights


2. Lover – Devandra Banhart 



Favorite lyrics: 

And I-I, I wanna be your lover baby

I wanna be your girl

Blow a kiss and change the world, yeah


3. I Promise You – Johnny Cash 



Favorite lyrics: 

And when you’re in the autumn of your years

You’ll call me in the night and I’ll be near

I love you and I’ll let you know I do

I promise you I promise you


4. Girl! – Terror Pigeon 



Favorite lyrics: 

I want to be there when you wake

I want to be there when you need

I want to be there when you laugh

I want to be there when you speed

I want to be there when you’re hurt

I want to be there ’til you’re fine

I want to be there for tonight

I want to be there all the time


5. Dream a Little Dream of Me – The Mamas & The Papas 



Favorite lyrics: 

Say “nighty-night” and kiss me

Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me

While I’m alone and blue as can be

Dream a little dream of me


6. With You I Feel Alive – SNCKPCK 



Favorite lyrics: 

I love the way you look at me

All happy and care free

Let’s lock our lips and throw away the key


I hope everyone is doing well and that you enjoy this music!
