It's only me who can forgive me
dead or in serious trouble
kaiser chiefs
"Scars on his face and a stone in the place where his heart would previously beat. Travelling even faster in the wake of disaster and reaching at you from the bleak."
did you hear the rain?
george ezra
"Did you hear the rain? Oh, the rain? You can try & run & hide. Tearing at the chain. Means I’m coming home again."
no hope
the vaccines
"Well, I wish that I was comfortable in my own skin, but the whole thing feels like an exercise in trying to be someone I would rather not be."
i'm not sorry
the pigeon detectives
"I'll never take it back. I'll never take it back. I didn't mean to make you cry. I'm not sorry. No, I'm not sorry."
learnt my lesson well
kaiser chiefs
"I can tell you now, there ain't a problem can't be solved with a good old fashioned row. So grit your teeth and stand your ground. "
open road
roo panes
"Let me out of this cage, before I swell up with rage. Let me sing to old age before I'm done. Let me shout to the skies that I'm too young to die. And that fate will never stop me from trying. "
master pretender
first aid kit
"I always knew that I was young, but with a head held high and a sharp tongue, I could fool almost anyone. I never expected to be struck by the fatal hands of fortune or by sheer bad luck. "
last hope
"And the salt in my wounds isn't burning anymore than it used to. It's not that I don't feel the pain, it's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore."
a maker of my time
the paper kites
"I still stir, such a war of words, I'm a maker of my time. A feeble man with a broken plan. Oh, I'm loathing."
wall of arms
the maccabees
"Oh, from the seed they've grown me. And I thank those, those who kept me company. They are a wall of arms around me. Oh, it is they who are my army."
my body is a cage
arcade fire
"My body is a cage that keeps me from dancing with the one I love. But my mind holds the key. I'm standing on a stage of fear and self-doubt. It's a hollow play but they'll clap anyway."

Like The Dawn
~The Oh Hellos
"You were the brightest shade of sun I had ever seen
Your skin was gilded with the gold of the richest kings
And like the dawn you woke the world inside of me."
Dead Sea
~The Lumineers
"I've been down, I've been defeated
You're the message, I will heed it.
Would you stay,
Would you stay the night?
Dead Sea,
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
I never sink when you are with me
Oh, Lord, I'm your Dead Sea"
Tear In My Heart
~Twenty One Pilots
"Sometimes you gotta bleed to know
That you’re alive and have a soul
But it takes someone to come around
To show you how
She’s the tear in my heart, I’m alive
She’s the tear in my heart, I’m on fire
She’s the tear in my heart
Take me higher
Than I’ve ever been"
"Take the worst situations
Make a worse situation
Follow me home, pretend you
Found somebody to mend you
I feel numb, I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb, I feel numb in this kingdom"
The One
"Tell me,
Tell me that you want me,
And I’ll be yours completely
For better or for worse.
I know,
We’ll have our disagreements,
Be fighting for no reason.
I wouldn’t change it for the world."
Various Storms & Saints
~Florence + the Machine
"I know it seems like forever
I know it seems like an age
But one day this will be over
I swear it's not so far away

But still you stumble, feet give way
Outside the world seems a violent place"
Animal Fear
~Marika Hackman
"Look into my eyes
And convince us both
That I'll last through the night
I could land on my feet if I tried
I never jumped a chasm so wide
And made it to the opposite side
Even now, as we are, standing here
I can see the doubt in your eyes
I can smell the animal fear"
Heavy Heart
~Gabrielle Aplin
"Saw you staring into nothing
In the silence something's screaming
I know you're trying but there's nothing you can say
I feel better in the morning
When all my troubles lose their meaning
Let go, there's nothing you can change
I know it hurts to watch me bleeding
Can't tell you what I'm needing
We can't stop the river rising"
~The Vaccines
"Please don't turn the light out
I don't think the conversation's over
Don't just shut your eyes closed
Not until I get it off my chest
Have you turned a corner?
Do you think of leaving me behind?"
~The Maccabees
"Thought I'd find it easier
Under lock, chain and key
Thought I'd find it easier
To just keep you to me
When the wisdom and the patience
Of the world's wasted on me
That's when I shut down my relationships
Watch them floating out to sea"
You Win Some
~The Rifles
"But you can't have the world
You couldn't take the weight, anyway
And everything we are,
It only matters for today
And yesterday is over and it won't be back again
But there's beauty in tomorrow
If it means that I can change and I can change"
~Gabrielle Aplin
"So walk away from your pride
It’s a demon in disguise
And it won’t help you to calm the swelling tide
Show me that you’re human, you won’t break
Oh, love your flaws and live for your mistakes"
"All of your flaws and all of my flaws
Are laid out one by one
Look at the wonderful mess that we made
We pick ourselves undone"
Vitamin C
~Clean Cut Kid
"If the sun don't rise like it's supposed to
You built a wall it won't let me get close to you
I'm gonna' be your Vitamin C
Build you back up the way you used to be"
~The Hoosiers
"Take that sharp, sharp tongue of yours
And cut me in two,
I'll attack from both sides
And hide under your skin,
Because I need you.
Don't make me cry, it's bad enough
I made it hell for all of us.
What's it like being glorious?"
~The Big Moon
"You let me heal your battle scars
Run my ship to ground
Yeah nothing's gonna' take me down
Give me everything you got
Let your heart beat loud
Yeah nothing could turn me round
I am not invisible
I'm on your side
I'll be formidable"
"If you want a second to breathe
I'll give you all of my love
I'll give you all that you need
Don't worry
I'm not in a hurry
Not going nowhere"
Keeping Your Head Up
"Times that I've seen you lose your way
You're not in control and you won't be told
All I can do to keep you safe is hold you close
Hold you close til you can breathe on your own"
Can’t Pretend
~Tom Odell
"Love, I have wounds,
Only you can mend,
You can mend.
I guess that's love,
I can't pretend,
I can't pretend."
When I Fall In Love
~Nat King Cole
"When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you."
