The Fray - You Found Me





I found God
On the corner of First and Amistad
Where the west
Was all but won
All alone
Smoking his last cigarette
I said, "Where you been?"
He said, "Ask anything".

Where were you
When everything was falling apart?

All my days
Were spent by the telephone
That never rang

And all I needed was a call
That never came

To the corner of First and Amistad

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me

Lyin' on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?

Just a little late
You found me, you found me

In the end
Everyone ends up alone

Losing her
The only one who's ever known
Who I am
Who I'm not, who I wanna be
No way to know
How long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lyin' on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

Early morning
The city breaks
I've been callin'
For years and years and years and years
And you never left me no messages
Ya never send me no letters
You got some kinda nerve
Taking all I want


Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lyin' on the floor
Where were you? Where were you?
Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lyin' on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?

Just a little late
You found me, you found me
Why'd you have to wait?
To find me, to find me

Natasha Bedingfield - Recover



Been torn apart,
Got so many scratches and scars,

Maybe they won't all go away,
But they'll fade,
Maybe time can mend us together.. again.
Its not what we've done but, how far we've come.

We will recover
The worst is over, now.
All those fires we've been walking through,
And still we survive, somehow.
We will recover
The worst is behind
And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover.

Got so much to lose,
Seems I've lost my power to choose, oh
What to love and when to let go,
That all changed,
Get bitten once and then you're afraid
What a waste,
Look what we've done,
How far we've come..

We will recover,
The worst is over, now.
All those fires we've been walking through,
And still we survive, somehow.
We will recover,
The worst is behind,
And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover.

Everybody's got a, a reason to cry,
And everybody fights but, not everyone survives
And everybody's searching, not everybody finds
And I'm still in recovery, and I'll make it out alive.

We will recover,
The worst is over, now.
All those fires we've been walking through
And still we survive, somehow.

We will recover
The worst is behind, and it hurts but in time,
I know that we will recover,
The worst is over, now.
And all those fires we've been walking through,
And still we survive, somehow.
We will recover,
The worst is behind
And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover

Sara Bareilles - King of Anything


Keep drinkin' coffee, stare me down across the table
While I look outside

So many things I'd say if only I were able
But I just keep quiet and count the cars that pass by

You've got opinions, man
We're all entitled to 'em
But I never asked

So let me thank you for time
And try to not waste any more of mine
Get out of here fast

I hate to break it to you babe
But I'm not drowning
There's no one here to save

Who cares if you disagree
You are not me
Who made you king of anything
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything

You sound so innocent
All full of good intent
You swear you know best

But you expect me to jump up on board with you
Ride off into your dellusional sunset

I'm not the one who's lost with no direction oh
But you won't ever see

You're so busy makin' maps
With my name on them in all caps
You got the talkin' down just not the listening

And who cares if you disagree
You are not me

Who made you king of anything
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything

All my life I've tried to make everybody happy while I Just hurt
And hide
Waitin' for someone to tell me it's my turn to decide

Who cares if you disagree
You are not me

Who made you king of anything
So you dare tell me who to be
Who died and made you king of anything

Imagine Dragons - It's Time


So this is what you meant
When you said that you were spent
And now it's time to build from the bottom of the pit
Right to the top

Don't hold back
Packing my bags and giving the academy a rain check

I don't ever want to let you down
I don't ever want to leave this town
'Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night

It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I'll admit
I'm just the same as I was
Now don't you understand
That I'm never changing who I am

So this is where you fell
And I am left to sell
The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell
Right to the top
Don't look back
Turning to rags and giving the commodities a rain check

I don't ever want to let you down
I don't ever want to leave this town
'Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night

It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I'll admit
I'm just the same as I was
Now don't you understand
That I'm never changing who I am

It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I'll admit
I'm just the same as I was
Now don't you understand
That I'm never changing who I am

This road never looked so lonely
This house doesn't burn down slowly
To ashes, to ashes

It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I'll admit
I'm just the same as I was
Now don't you understand
That I'm never changing who I am

Gotye - Somebody That I Used to Know

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad it was over

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know


Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Kelly Clarkson - Never Again
I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green
I hope when you're in bed with her, you think of me
I would never wish bad things, but I don't wish you well
Could you tell, by the flames that burned your words
I never read your letter
'Cause I knew what you'd say
Give me that Sunday school answer
Try and make it all OK
Does it hurt to know I'll never be there
Bet it sucks, to see my face everywhere
It was you, who chose to end it like you did
I was the last to know
You knew exactly what you would do
And don't say, you simply lost your way
She may believe you but I never will
Never again
If she really knows the truth, she deserves you
A trophy wife, oh how cute
Ignorance is bliss
But when your day comes, and he's through with you
And he'll be through with you
You'll die together but alone
You wrote me in a letter
You couldn't say it right to my face
Give me that Sunday school answer
Repent yourself away

Adele - Someone Like You

I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,"

Yeah.

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.

Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

E for Explosion - This is Me Being Honest...


And I will never be the same
I can barely speak your name
I'm clutching empty clothes,
Lost in a void that only grows,
In a skin I've grown to hate.

And if you only knew,
That this is all that I can do
It's God's honest truth.

I just miss you.

I can still hear your voice,
Though it's surrounded by the noise,
The noise of loss and love
And all the prayers that weren't enough
To trade a miracle for your choice.


And if you only knew
This is all that I can do
This is God's honest truth.

I just miss you.

I had to be high,
When I told her she was the love of my life
And I'm so damn sick of goodbyes.
I'm over kisses leaving scars as reminders I'm alive


If I could take all of your pain,
I'd hide it all away

I can say one things for sure
You know I hate when you hurt
And you're worth every minute I wait.

And if you only knew
This is all that I can do
It's God's honest truth.

I just miss you.

Eve 6 - Arch Drive Goodbye


Ringing in my head
All the things you've said
All the things you've done
I wish I could compromise
but theres only one way to go
and I'm going alone


I'm going alone

your self-help book shelf is full now
your pictures are about to be pulled down
without regard for a broken heart
its another year

Ringing in my head
All the things you've said
All the things you've done
I wish I could compromise
but theres only one way to go


Wanna be with you tonight
Wanna be with you tonight
No i know it isnt right
wanna be with you tonight

Cause I love the way that you shock-shock-shock me
follow me to my house and then you rock-rock-rock me
wanna see your eyes wide not so shut
the queen be cool, don't stop keep up
livin the city can be dyin' if you don't
got a grip take a sip from my molotov mug
wanna keep you from keepin you down
pick yourself up off the ground

wanna keep you from keepin' you down
come on girl
ringing in my head
all the things you've said
all the things you've done

I wish i could compromise
I wish i could close my eyes
and somehow make it all alright

but i know there's only one way to go
