Beats for The Sheets: Sexy Song of The Month, December

The Holiday season is a time when we all crave warmth, but sometimes sensuality isn't cozy. Sometimes, it's laced with desperation. There's something about Dashboard Confessional that conjures the season of winter for me. It could be that I listened to them relentlessly in a long gone winter of my youth. Listening, singing aloud, and pouring my heart out in my freezing cold Ford Tempo--singing to the lights on my dashboard as this artist intended.

Winter can mean holding hands under fleece blankets while drinking hot chocolate and staring at holiday lights, but it can also make the desire to posses another's heart--or body--even more poignant.

We may remember relationships past and long for their return or feel relieved that they are over.

Either way, this song "Screaming Infidelities" evokes emotion in me and maybe it will for you as well.


Enjoy, and have the warmest of holidays.





I'm missing your bed
I never sleep
Avoiding the spots where we'd have to speak
And this bottle of beast is taking me home

I'm cuddling close
To blankets and sheets
But you're not alone and you're not discreet
You make sure I know who's taking you home

I'm reading your note over again
There is not a word that I comprehend
Except when you signed it
"I will love you always and forever"

As for now I'm gonna hear the saddest songs
And sit alone and wonder,how you're making out
And as for me I wish that I was anywhere
With anyone making out

I'm missing your laugh
How did it break?
And when did your eyes begin to look fake?
I hope you're as happy as your pretending

I'm cuddling close
To play it to cheats
'N I am alone, in my defeat
I wish I knew you were safely at home

I'm missing your bed
I never sleep
Avoiding the spots where we'd have to sleep
And this bottle of beast is taking me home

As for now I'm gonna hear the saddest songs
And sit alone and wonder,how you're making out
And as for me I wish that I was anywhere
With anyone making out

Your hair, it's everywhere
Screaming infidelities and taking its wear
Your hair, it's everywhere
Screaming infidelities and taking its wear

Your hair, it's everywhere
Screaming infidelities and taking its wear
Your hair, it's everywhere
Screaming infidelities and taking its wear
