CANDLES, by daughter

That boy, take me away, into the night
Out of the hum of the street lights and into a forest
I'll do whatever you say to me in the dark
Scared I'll be torn apart by a wolf in mask of a familiar name on a birthday card

Blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
"You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
Just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
Wide-eyed, both in silence
Wide-eyed, like we're in a crime scene

Well I have brittle bones it seems
I bite my tongue and I torch my dreams
Have a little voice to speak with
And a mind of thoughts and secrecy
Things cannot be reversed, we learn from the times we are cursed
Things cannot be reversed, learn from the ones we fear the worst
And learn from the ones we hate the most how to

Blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
"You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
Just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
Wide-eyed, both in silence
Wide-eyed

Cause we both know I'll never be your lover
I only bring the heat
Company under cover
Filling space in your sheets
Well I'll never be a lover
I only bring the heat
Company under cover
Filling space in your sheets, in your sheets

So, please just blow out all the candles, blow out all the candles
"You're too old to be so shy," he says to me so I stay the night
It's just a young heart confusing my mind, but we're both in silence
Wide-eyed, both in silence
Wide-eyed, like we're in a crime scene

NO PLAN, by hozier

For starts
What a waste to say the heart could feel apart
Or feel complete, baby
Why would you make out of words
A cage for your own bird?
When it sings so sweet
The screaming, heaving, fuckery of the world?
Why would you offer a name
To the same old tired pain?
When all things come from nothin'
And honey, if nothin's gained?

My heart is thrilled by the still of your hand
That's how I know now that you understand

There's no plan
There's no race to be run
The harder the rain, honey, the sweeter the sun
There's no plan
There's no kingdom to come
I'll be your man if you got love to get done
Sit in and watch the sunlight fade
Honey, enjoy, it's gettin' late
There's no plan
There's no hand on the rein
As Mack explained, there will be darkness again

Let it hurl, let the awful song be heard
Blue bird, I know your beat, baby
But your secret is safe with me
'Cause if secrets were like seeds
Keep my body from the fire
Hire a gardener for my grave
Your secret is safe with me
And if secrets were like seeds
When I'm lying under marble
Marvel at flowers you'll have made

My heart is thrilled by the still of your hand
That's how I know now that you understand
There's no plan
There's no race to be run
The harder the pain, honey, the sweeter the song
There's no plan
There's no kingdom to come
I'll be your man if you got love to get done
Sit in and watch the sunlight fade
Honey, enjoy, it's gettin' late
There's no plan
There's no hand on the rein
As Mack explained, there will be darkness again

My heart is thrilled by the still of your hand
That's how I know now that you understand
How big the hourglass, how deep the sand
I shouldn't have hoped to know, but here I stand

There's no plan
There's no race to be run
The harder the rain, honey, the sweeter the sun
There's no plan
There's no kingdom to come
I'll be your man if you got love to get done
Sit in and watch the sunlight fade
Honey, enjoy, it's gettin' late
There's no plan
There's no hand on the rein
As Mack explained, there will be darkness again

AT THE STARS, by better than ezra

Maybe I should drop you at your door
Or leave tonight and vanish up the shore
Anywhere but here
It's three o clock we're driving in your car
You're screaming out the window at the stars
"Please don't drive me home"

Blame us cause we are who we are
Hate us cause you'll never get that far
And who'd suppose you would go
I've already learned enough to know

Tell me all the places we could go
And count the headlights passing on the road
A long long time ago

Blame us cause we are who we are
Hate us cause you'll never get that far
And who'd suppose you would go
I've already learned enough to know

Here we are
Foreign to their world
Straight and composed
Your sermons I can do without
And I finally found that everybody loves to love you
When you're far away

Could it be we've done something wrong
We'd make it home to your place before dawn
"Please don't drive me home"
"Please don't take me home"

Blame us cause we are who we are
Hate us cause you'll never get that far
And who'd suppose you would go
I've already learned enough to know

I'D BE LYING, by greg laswell

Won't you let me give you a hand
I have an extra I'm not using
Won't you let me lighten your load
I mean after all your legs are shaking

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh won't you take the fall
It is me after all

Won't you let me match your stride
I can slow down if you want to
We can handle it side by side
What do you say girl don't you want to

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh won't you take the fall
It is me after all

I'd be lying
If I ran away
I'd be lying
If I ran another way

And so I'll stay

But won't you let me be your man
I'm strong enough you know that I can
Be the one to ease your mind
Ease your mind

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh won't you take the fall
It is is me after all

I'd be lying
If I ran another way
I'd be lying
If I ran another way
And so I'll stay

Won't you let me give you a hand
I have an extra I'm not using
Won't you let me lighten your load
I mean after all your legs are shaking

And I can understand
All I need is your hand
Oh won't you take the fall
It is me after all
[x2]

There's not much that you can do
To get me to run away from you
[x6]

I'd be lying
If I ran away
I'd be lying
If I ran another away

YELLOW, by coldplay

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah, they were all yellow

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called "Yellow"

So then I took my turn
Oh what a thing to have done
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
Do you know
You know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh what a thing to do
'Cause you were all yellow

I drew a line
I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
Do you know
For you I'd bleed myself dry
For you I'd bleed myself dry

It's true
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And all the things that you do

LIVE AGAIN, by better than ezra

Don't fear,
Even though you're at a loss.
I'm numb,
A shell of empty thoughts.
But you glow,
You stretch and pull me out.
Does that trouble you?
Do I trouble you?

Love me
Hate me
Make me live again
I need you around
Heal me
Hurt me
Make me live again
I want you around

So long
I never had experienced
This bliss.
So how could I resist?
And I'm fine,
A little light-headed.
Does that worry you?
I didn't mean to worry you.

Love me
Hate me
Make me live again
I need you around
Heal me
Hurt me
Make me live again
I want you around

Now, retreating from the light.
I love it when we fight:
It makes me think
At least you still care.

Give up, you're not going anywhere.
Moonlight illuminates your stare.
It's great captivating you.
Does that trouble you?
Do I trouble you?

Love me
Hate me
Make me live again
I need you around
Heal me
Hurt me
Make me live again
I want you around

SKINNY LOVE, by bon iver

Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in this moment this order's tall

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
And in the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different "kind"
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
Suckle on the hope in light brassiere
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
And now all your love is wasted?
Then who the hell was I?

Now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines
Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
Ooh, ooh

LOSE YOU, by pete yorn

I'm taking a ride off to one side
It is a personal thing.
Where?
When I can't stand
Up in this cage I'm not regretting.
I don't need a better thing.
I'd settle for less.
It's another thing for me.
I just have to wander through this world alone.

Stop before you fall
Into the hole that I have dug here.
Rest even as you
Are starting to feel the way I used to.
I don't need a better thing
Just to sound confused.
Don't talk about everyone.
I am not amused by you.

'Cause I'm gonna lose you.
Yes, I'm gonna lose you.
If I'm gonna lose you.

'Cause I'm gonna lose you.
Yes, I'm gonna lose you.
If I'm gonna lose you.
I'll lose you now for good.

YOUR EX-LOVER IS DEAD, by stars

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said "yes I think we've met before"
In that instant it started to pour
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of the time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name...

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn't get in
Now you're outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It's nothing but time and a face that you lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn't choose
I'll write you a postcard
I'll send you the news
From the house down the road from real love...

Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...

There's one thing I want to say, so I'll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I'm not sorry I met you
I'm not sorry it's over
I'm not sorry there's nothing to save

I'm not sorry there's nothing to save...

NFWMB, by hozier

When I first saw you
The end was soon
To Bethlehem
It slouched and then
Must've caught a good look at you
Give your heart and soul to charity
'Cause the rest of you, the best of you
Honey, belongs to me

Ain't it a gentle sound, the rolling in the graves?
Ain't it like thunder under earth, the sound it makes?
Ain't it exciting you, the rumble where you lay?

Ain't you my baby?
Ain't you my baby?

Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing can get a look in on my baby
Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

If I was born as a black thorn tree
I'd wanna be felled by you, held by you
Fuel the pyre of your enemies
Ain't it warming you, the world goin' up in flames?
Ain't it the life where you you're lighting off the blaze?
Ain't it a waste it watch the throwing of the shade?

Ain't you my baby?
Ain't you my baby?

Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing can get a look in on my baby
Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing can get a look in on my baby
Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing can get a look in on my baby
Nothing fucks with my baby
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

SHRIKE, by hozier

I couldn't utter my love when it counted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now
And I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird 'bout it now

The words hung above
But never would form
Like a cry at the final breath that is drawn
Remember me love when I'm reborn
As the shrike to your sharp
And glorious thorn

I had no idea on what ground I was founded
All of that goodness is going with you now
Then when I met you, my virtues uncounted
All of my goodness is going with you now

Dragging along
Follow in your form
Hung like the pelt of some prey you had worn
Remember me love when I'm reborn
As the shrike to your sharp
And glorious thorn

I fled to the city with so much discounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now
Back to the hedgerows where bodies are mounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now

I was housed by your warmth
Thus transformed
By your grounded and giving
And darkening scorn
Remember me love when I'm reborn
As the shrike to your sharp
And glorious thorn

IT WILL COME BACK, by hozier

You know better babe, you know better babe
Than to look at it, look at it like that
You know better babe, you know better babe
Than to talk to it, talk to it like that

Don't give it a hand, offer it a soul
Honey, make this easy
Leave it to the land, this is what it knows
Honey, that's how it sleeps

Don't let it in with no intention to keep it
Jesus Christ! Don't be kind to it
Honey don't feed it - it will come back

You know better babe, you know better babe
Than to smile at me, smile at me like that
You know better babe, you know better babe!
Than to hold me just, hold me just like that

I know who I am when I'm alone
I'm something else when I see you
You don't understand, you should never know
How easy you are to need

Don't let me in with no intention to keep me
Jesus Christ! Don't be kind to me
Honey don't feed me - I will come back

It can't be unlearned
I've known the warmth of your doorways
Through the cold, I'll find my way back to you
Oh please, give me mercy no more!
It's a kindness you can't afford!
I want you baby tonight, as sure as you're born

You'll hear me howling outside your door
Don't you hear me howling babe?
Won't you hear me howling babe?
Don't you hear me howling babe?
Once you hear me howling, once you hear me howling, once you hear me howling babe!

DARK DOO WOP, by ms mr

This world is gonna burn, burn burn burn
As long as we're going down...
Baby you should stick around
Baby you should stick around

It's all gone to shit, it's out of our hands
Babe if you could know, you would hatch a plan
That's my, that's my man

If we're gonna die, bury us alive
If you're searching for us you'll find us side by side
That's my, that's my man

This world is gonna burn, burn burn burn
As long as we're going down...
Baby you should stick around
Baby you should stick around

The earth breaks, it falls and set your beat
I'd find myself swallowed, drowning in your heat
As long as we're going down...
Baby you should stick around
Baby you should stick around

This world is gonna burn, burn burn burn
As long as we're going down...
Baby you should stick around
Baby you should stick around

This world is gonna burn, burn burn burn
As long as we're going down...
Baby you should stick around
Baby you should stick around

GOD OF WINE, by third eye blind

Every thought that I repent
There's another chip you haven't spent
And you're cashing them all in
Where do we begin to get clean again
Can we get clean again

I walk home alone with you
And the mood you're born into
Sometimes you let me in
And I take it on the chin
I can't get clean again
I want to know can we get clean again

The God of Wine comes crashing through
The headlights of a car that took you farther
Than you thought you'd ever want to go
We can't get back again
We can't get back again
She takes a drink and then she waits
The alcohol it permeates
And soon the cells give way, and cancels out the day

I can't keep it all together
I know I know I know...
I can't keep it all together
And the siren's song that is your madness
Holds a truth I can't erase
All alone on your face

Every glamorous sunrise
Throws the planets out of line
A star sign out of whack, a fraudulent zodiac
And the God of Wine is crouched down in my room
You let me down, I said it, now I'm going down
And you're not even around
And I said no no no...

I can't keep it all together
I know I know I know...
I can't keep it all together
And there's a memory of a window
Looking through I see you
Searching for something I could never give you
And there's someone who understands
You more than I do
A sadness I can't erase
All alone on your face

UNSTEADY, by x ambassadors

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Momma
Come here
Approach
Appear
Daddy
I'm alone
'Cause this house don't feel like home

If you love me
Don't let go
If you love me
Don't let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Mother
I know
That you're tired of being alone
Dad I know you're trying
To fight when you feel like flying

But if you love me
Don't let go
If you love me
Don't let go

Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold
Hold on
Hold on to me
'Cause I'm a little unsteady
A little unsteady

RUBBER AND SOUL, by ane brun

In my mind I'm crawling on your floor
Vomiting and defeated
Total absence of grace
Your reluctant voice saying;
You decide your own fate

But I wear rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from falling
And these rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from falling

In my repeated dreams
Your stare at me with an empty gaze
You turn your back on me
And you search for more intriguing days
Loathing this
Controlling this
Let me get a hold of this

So I wear rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from falling
And these rubber bands round my soul
They keep me from falling

So then when you are not in my dreams
And not in my mind but
We are at the same place at the same time
Rubber no longer holds
The borders of my soul

FALL INTO ME, by alev lenz

Follow me,
I'll show you the way
Out of this blue
Out of this blue

Fall into me
And drown inside me
I know you will see
The Beauty of me
The Beauty of me

Now you see
All that I can be
I know you will see
The Beauty of me

Tired are your splendid soldiers
Tired are they, Here they go

Tired are your splendid soldiers
Tired are they, Here they go

Tired are your splendid soldiers
Tired are they, Here they go.

COLORBLIND, by counting crows

I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready, I am ready, I am ready
I am taffy stuck and tongue tied
Stutter-shook and uptight
Pull me out from inside
I am ready
I am ready
I am ready
I am fine

I am covered in skin
No one gets to come in
Pull me out from inside
I am folded and unfolded and unfolding
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready
I am ready
I am ready
I am fine
I am fine
I am fine

HIDE AND SEEK, by imogen heap

Where are we? What the hell is going on?
The dust has only just begun to fall,
Crop circles in the carpet, sinking, feeling.
Spin me 'round again and rub my eyes.
This can't be happening.
When busy streets amass with people
Would stop to hold their heads heavy.

Hide and seek.
Trains and sewing machines.
All those years they were here first.

Oily marks appear on walls
Where pleasure moments hung before.
The takeover, the sweeping insensitivity of this still life.

Hide and seek.
Trains and sewing machines. (Oh, you won't catch me around here)
Blood and tears (hearts),
They were here first.

Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that you only meant well? Well, of course you did.
Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that it's all for the best? Of course it is.
Mmm, what you say?
Mm, that it's just what we need? And you decided this.
What you say?
Mmm, what did She say?

Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth.
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut-outs.
Speak no feeling, no I don't believe you.
You don't care a bit. You don't care a bit.

(hide and seek)
Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth.
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut-outs.
(hide and seek)
Speak no feeling, no I don't believe you.
You don't care a bit. You don't care a bit.

(hide and seek)
You don't care a bit.
You don't care a bit.
You don't care a bit.
(hide and seek)
You don't care a bit.
You don't care a bit.

NI SOKU HOKOU (TWO BREATHS WALKING), by deco*27

"This is the process of my evolution, page 1"

I want to hold you, so I walk on two feet
It's lonely alone, so I'll breath with you

"Mom, I found someone I really like"
"Congratulations"

I'd like to see you
So tell me whose milk are you nursing on these days?
Have you learned to talk yet?

"Papa, Mama, Nina..."
"Good job. I'll be right there"

Huh? That's strange...

As I go to embrace you, the arms I once crawled on
For some reason begin to hurt you
Words I've learned cut you like a knife
My life cutting things to shreds

So before I unsheathe this knife
Let me seal that mouth of yours with mine

A kiss that seeks you out
From now on, my breath will nurse you
Our words rust in saliva

Now that you're already breathing my breath
You try saying "I love you" and all that but
Why not use me like an air tank forever
Draw your last breath on the words I exhale
