Libertines: Music When the Lights Go Out Is it cruel or kind Not to speak my mind And to lie to you Rather than hurt you? And alarm bells ring When you say your heart still sings When you’re with me Oh won’t you please forgive me Snow Patrol: If There’s A Rocket Tie Me To It And I knew the beat since it matched your own beat I still remember it from our chest to chest and feet to feet A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry A pulse your pulse, it’s the only thing I can remember I break you don’t, I was always set to self destruct though The fire the fire, it cracks and barks like primal music. Bright Eyes: Perfect Sonnet Lately I’ve been wishing I had only one desire Something that would make me never want another Something that would make it so that nothing matters All would be clear then
Foster the People: I Would Do Anything for You
Every day is a battle I face
Strange life I live
But it’s what you’ve decided
I give it all into your hands
Do what you will with me
And I’ll I smile when you speak
Remember all those times
I was hoping for something?
And shaking my head
From all that I’ve done
But you never left me
Elliot Smith: Alameda
Thinking about your friends
How you maintain all them in a constant state of suspense
For your own protection over their affection
Nobody broke your heart
You broke your own because you can’t finish what you start
I don’t want to slip down
I don’t want to think back to the one thing that I know I
Should have done
I don’t want to doubt you
Know everything about you
I don’t want to sit across the table from you
Wishing I could runLeft and Leaving by The Weakerthans
My city’s still breathing (but barely it’s true)
Through buildings gone missing like teeth
The sidewalks are watching me think about you
Sparkled with broken glass
I’m back with scars to show
Back with the streets I know
Will never take me anywhere but here
Destiny by Zero 7
The journey’s long, and I feel so bad.
I’m thinking back to the last day we had
Old moon fades in to the new
Soon I know I’ll be back with you
I’m nearly with you, I’m nearly with you.
When I’m weak, I draw strength from you
And when you’re lost I know how to change your mood
And when I’m down you breathe life over me
Even though we’re miles apart, we are each other’s
Exit Wounds: The Script
That I search my skin
For the entry point
When love went in
And bounced around
And left a hole when you walked out
I want you to know
When I look in your eyes
With every blow
Comes another lie
Block Party: I Still RememberAnd I can see our days are becoming nights.
I could feel your heartbeat across the grass.
We should have run.
I would go with you anywhere.
I should have kissed you by the water
You should have asked me for it
I would have been brave
You should have asked me for it
How could I say no?
Wraith Pinned to the Mist by Of Montreal
Maybe I’ll never die,
I’ll just keep growing younger with you,
And you’ll grow younger, too.
Now it seems too lovely to be true
But I know the best things always do.
All the Rowboats: Regina Spektor
But the most special are the most lonely,
God, I pity the violins
The Reeling: Passion Pit
And all at once i feel this, oh how it clings to me
it reels and calls me towards it, confounding destiny
and i can feel the madness inch by inch
the more i run the more i am convinced
a color all these like the branches glimpse
just like the saddle in the foggy mist
Yo La Tengo: Tears are In Your Eyes
Although you don’t believe me, you are strong
Darkness always turns into the dawn
And you won’t even remember this for long
When it ends all right
Ocean Breathes Salty: Modest Mouse
Your body may be gone, I’m gonna carry you in.
In my head, in my heart, in my soul.
And maybe we’ll get lucky and we’ll both live again.
Well I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.
Wishing Well: Airborne Toxic Event
So you stand on the corner
Where the angels sit
And you think to yourself,
“This is it, this is it,
This is all that I have
This is all ll I can stand
Casimir Pulaski Day: Sufjan Stevens
In the morning in the winter shade
On the first of March, on the holiday
I thought I saw you breathing
All the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications when I see His face
In the morning in the window
All the glory when He took our place
But He took my shoulders and He shook my face
And He takes and He takes and He takes.
