"It could have been, in a world where good things happen to me."

"Yeah, well, that's not really where we live."

Laura Marling - Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)

You were so smart then, in your jacket and coat
My softest red scarf was warming your throat
Winter was on us at the end of my nose
But I never love England more than when covered in snow

But a friend of mine says, 'It's good to hear
That you believe in love even if said in fear,'
Well, I'll hold you there, brother, and set you straight
I only believe that true love is frail and willing to break

I will come back here
Bring me back when I'm old
I want to lay here
Forever in the cold.
I might be cold but
I'm just skin and bones
And I never love England more than when covered in snow

I wrote my name in your book
Only God knows why
And I bet you that he cracked a smile
And I'm clearing all the crap out of my room
Trying desperately to figure out what it is that makes me blue
And I wrote in an epic letter to you
And it's 22 pages front and back but it's too good to be used
And I tried to be a girl who likes to be used
I'm too good for that
There's a mind under this hat and I
Called them all and told them I've got to move

I'm out now, it's too hard
I'm out now, it's too hard
Feel like running, feel like running
Running off
And we will keep you
We will keep you little one
Safe from harm, like an extra arm
You are a part of us

You were so smart then, in your jacket and coat
And my softest red scarf was warming your throat
Winter will leave us, left the end of my nose
So goodbye old England until next year's snow

Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous

omymy
It's only doubts that we're counting
On fingers broken long ago
I read with every broken heart we should become
More adventurous
And if you banish me from your profits
And if I get banished from the kingdom up above
I'd sacrifice money
And heaven
All for love
Let me be loved, let me be loved

And if my brain quits, well I guess then that's just it
And if my hands stop working you can call me lazy
And if I get pregnant, I guess I'll just have the baby
Let it be loved, let me be loved

I've been trying to nod my head, but it's like I've got a broken neck
Wanting to say I will as my last testament
For me to be saved and you to be brave 
We don't have to walk down that aisle
'Cause if marriage ain't enough
Well, at least we'll be loved

I felt the wind on my cheek coming down from the east
And thought about how we are all as numerous as leaves on trees
And maybe ours is the cause of all mankind
Give love to make more, try to stay alive

I've been trying to nod my head, but it's like I've got a broken neck
Wanting to say I will as my last testament
For you to be saved and me to be brave 
We don't have to walk down that aisle
'Cause if marriage ain't enough
Well, at least we'll be loved

Tori Amos - SIlent All These Years

Excuse me, but can I be you for a while?
My dog won't bite if you sit real still
I got the antichrist in the kitchen yelling at me again
Yeah, I can hear that
Been saved again by the garbage truck
I got something to say, you know
But nothing comes
Yes I know what you think of me
You never shut up
Yeah, I can hear that

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With our name still on it
Hey, but I don't care
'Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice
And it's been here
Silent all these years

So you found a girl
Who thinks really deep thoughts
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts?
Boy, you best pray that I bleed real soon
How's that thought for you?
My scream got lost in a paper cup
I think there's a heaven
Where the screams have gone
I got 25 bucks and a cracker
Do you think it's enough
To get us there?

'Cause what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With our name still on it
Hey, but I don't care
'Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice
And it's been here
Silent all these
Years go by
Will I still be waiting
For somebody else to understand?
Years go by
If I'm stripped of my beauty
And the orange clouds
Raining in head
Years go by
Will I choke on my tears
Till finally there is nothing left
One more casualty
You know we're too easy

Well, I love the way we communicate
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
Let's hear what you think of me now
But baby, don't look up
The sky is falling
Your mother shows up in a nasty dress
It's your turn now to stand where I stand
Everybody looking at you
Take hold of my hand
Yeah, I can hear them

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice

It's been here
Silent all these years

Lily Allen - The Fear

I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever, I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuck loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘'Cause everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track, yeah, I’m on to a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
'Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and cussing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
And that’s what makes my life so fucking fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And its not my fault, it’s how I’m programed to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track, yeah, I’m on to a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
And everything's cool as long as I’m getting thinner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
‘Cause I’m being taken over by fear

Katie Todd - Leave

Necessary actions taken only so
You'll land on your feet.
And consequences with an action
Overthrown in this distraction, please.

And even when the stars align
There's always something caught in your teeth.
This and that it's always something with you
I've run out of steam.

Leave, I'm ready to leave
I'm sorry but you see
You're making me bleed
I'm ready to leave.

Morning bells are ringing
And finally we're singing in key.
Harmonizing with a .45 in mind
I think I should leave.

And even though I'm walking away
I wish the best for you dear.
Necessary actions taken
Only so I make myself clear.

You and I
Can we make up our minds.
Let's say goodbye this time for real
I'm gonna try.

Leave, I'm ready to leave
I'm sorry but you see
You're making me bleed
I'm ready to leave.

i watch you grow away from me in photographs
and memories like spies
the salt betrays my eyes again
i started losing sleep and gaining weight
and wishing i was ten again
so i could be your friend again

these days we go to waste like wine
its turned to turpentine
'til its six a.m. and i'm all messed up
i didn't mean to waste your time
so i fall back in line
but i'm warning you
we're growing up

i heard you found some pretty words to say
you found your little game to play
and there's no one allowed in here
and just when we thought that we would be great
reality, it permeates
and conquers from within again

these days we go to waste like wine
its turned to turpentine
'til its six a.m. and i'm all messed up
i didn't mean to waste your time
so i fall back in line
but i'm warning you
we're growing up

i know we're okay
i know we're okay
these days we go to waste like wine
its gone to turpentine
'til its six a.m. and i'm all messed up
i didn't mean to waste your time
so i fall back in line
but i'm warning you
we're growing up

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals - Apologies

Yesterday he said my eyes
Were fading fast away
I said, 'Well, what do you expect?
You asked me not to stay
And if it had all been for the best
I wouldn't feel this way,'
And he said

Oh, he said it's crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
'Cause I don't wanna fight this war
And it's amazing
To see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear
and apologies

My love is like a blanket
That gets a little bit too warm sometimes
I wanna wrap somebody in it
Who can hold me in his arms
'Cause when it got a little too hot in there
He was always stepping out for air
And he froze
Oh he froze

He said it's crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
'Cause I don't wanna fight this war
It's amazing
To see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear
And apologies

Yesterday he looked at me
With a tear in his eye and said,
'I'll always tell you you're my friend
I hope I don't have to lie
'Cause it's clear you love another man,'
I said, 'You're damn right,'

And he said
Oh, he said, 'It's crazy
How love stays with me
You know, and it hurts me
'Cause I don't wanna fight this war
It's amazing
To see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear and apologies,'
He said, 'It's crazy
How love stays with me
You know, and it hurts me
That I didn't figure it out before
And now it's too late for a soliloquy
Way too late for dignity
It's time for apologies.'
