She and Him Soundtrack

Updated on October 10, 2012

She and Him

Indie music is everything I could ask for. It fits into nothing and still has the all of the meaning in the world. She and Him is a indie band who is led by Zooey Deschanel, the beautiful actress from Yes Man. This is my favorite band of the moment and I wanted to share a few pictures, the CDography, and a little bit about the band.

She and Him - http://www.sheandhim.com/

According to the website, this is how the band started out, "She & Him make music for an eternal springtime, when the temperature is warm enough to go riding with the top (or at least the windows) rolled down and the radio turned up. They occupy an alternate universe where the saddest of songs feel as warm as sun showers; the rain may be coming down, but somewhere nearby, everything looks bright. What began as a fascinating, no-strings attached collaboration on 2008’s Volume One has evolved into a bona fide, touring band, and She & Him are here to stay. Zooey Deschanel and Matt Ward are as comfortable and complementary a musical pair as Les Paul and Mary Ford; hearing them again on Volume Two feels like getting together with two old friends. This time, the harmonies have grown more angelically layered, the string arrangements more dramatic, the songwriting even sharper and more confident. But, as with Volume One, the prevailing mood is bittersweet, dreamy, and romantic."

I Was Made for You, Lyrics - She and Him, Volume 1

"I Was Made For You"

I was takin' a walk

When I saw you pass by

I thought I saw you lookin' my way

So I thought I'd give you a try

When I saw you smile

I saw a dream come true

So I asked you, maybe, baby whatcha gonna do?

'Cause I have been waitin' for a long long time

For a boy like you

I won't be waitin' anymore cause I know:

Baby! Baby!

I was made for you

I was takin' a walk

When I saw you pass by

I thought I saw you lookin' my way

So I thought I'd give you a try

When I saw you smile

I saw a dream come true

So I asked you, maybe, baby whatcha gonna do?

'Cause I have been waitin' for a long long time

For a boy like you

I won't be waitin' anymore cause I know:

Baby! Baby!

I was made for you

I was made for you

I was made for you

Yeah, I was made for you

I was made for you

Sentimental Heart - Lyrics

Written by Zooey Deschanel (ZO Music/ASCAP)

Cried all night ‘til there was nothing more What use am I as a heap on the floor? Heaving devotion but it’s just no good Taking it hard just like you knew I would

Old habits die hard When you’ve got When you’ve got a sentimental heart Piece of the puzzle you’re my missing part Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart? Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?

Cried all night ‘til there was nothing more What use am I as a heap on the floor? Heaving devotion but it’s just no good Taking it hard just like you knew I would

Old habits die hard When you’ve got When you’ve got a sentimental heart

Piece of the puzzle I’m your missing part Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart? Oh, what can you do with a sentimental heart?

Brand New Shoes - She and Him, vol 2

I had some brand-new shoes

They were all red, but they gave me the blues

And they're running away, they left me a letter

It's just like you told me it'd be

It's nothing, nothing, nothing

Nothing at all

We are all made of air

There's stars in my eyes, and there's sun in my hair

And I'm running away, it makes me feel better

It's just like you told me it'd be

It's nothing, nothing, nothing

Nothing at all

When it comes down to this

I'm neither sorry, nor cross, nor I'm fit

And I'm running away, there's smoke on my sweater

It's just like you told me it'd be

It's nothing, nothing, nothing

Nothing at all

"Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" - She and Him Lyrics

"Swing Low, Sweet Chariot"

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

I looked over Jordan

And what did I see,

Coming for to carry me home

A band of angels

Coming after me

Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

Zooey Rocks!

You Really Got a Hold on Me
