Editor’s Note:  This is the debut offering from an extraordinary find:  Alexandra Wallace.  To label her a photographer doesn’t begin to do justice to her creative talents.

For It Haunts Me by Chris Lambert

I know some amazing people.
And the frontrunner of those people is my boyfriend Christopher Lambert. I don’t know any other artist more dedicated to their craft, and his talent is immeasurable. Not to mention he’s cute and makes me french toast 🙂
These lyrics are from his latest release, Krakatoa Lazer Punch,

For Brightest by Copeland

As suggested by my friend Matthew Lester; Copeland’s “Brightest.”

For When You Come Back Down by Nickel Creek

Everyone has a few words of inspiration they hold onto.

For Vindicated by Dashboard Confessional

Special thanks to Kiki Marie for the song suggestion! Gotta love Dashboard Confessional – this is off of one of my favorite of their albums 🙂

For Flightless Bird American Mouth by Iron and Wine

I’m told that this song was in ‘Twilight’, which I am yet to [and unless some unfortunate circumstance arises, will not] see.
But. All the same.
This song is beautiful, and one of my favorites.

For Commit This to Memory by Motion City Soundtrack

A lyric suggestion by another Flickr friend, Sarah Sonny! Off of Motion City Soundtrack’s ‘Commit This to Memory’, this was a big album in high school for me.

For The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

My lovely friend Samantha suggested this line to me!
This is Samantha.
