    Adele make you feel my love .....
    I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
    Nothing that I wouldn't do.
    Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
    to make you feel my love

    Counting Crows - Round Here

    Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand she said she'd like to
    meet a boy who looks like Elvis.
    She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land just like she's
    walking on a wire in the circus.
    She parks her car outside of my house and takes her clothes off, says she's
    close to understanding Jesus.
    She knows she's more than just a little misunderstood, she has trouble acting
    normal when she's nervous.

    Round here we're carving out our names
    Round here we all look the same
    Round here we talk just like lions, but we sacrifice like lambs
    Round here she's slipping through my hands

    I'm sure theres better, but I cant think of any at the moment

    I am the son
    and the heir
    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
    I am the son and heir
    Of nothing in particular

    You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way
    I am Human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does

    I am the son
    And the heir
    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
    I am the son and heir
    Of nothing in particular

    You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way
    I am Human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does

    There's a club, if you'd like to go
    You could meet someone who really loves you
    So you go, and you stand on your own
    And you leave on your own
    And you go home
    And you cry
    And you want to die

    When you say it's gonna happen now,
    When exactly do you mean?
    See I've already waited too long
    And all my hope is gone

    Pretty much all of Death Cab for Cutie's lyrics, but I adore Crooked Teeth
    "that night the sun in the trees
    made the skyline look like crooked teeth
    in the mouth of a man who was devouring us both."
    Anything Pete Doherty
    "All the memories of the fights and the nights
    and the blue lights, all the kites
    We flew together,
    I thought they'd fly forever."
    And most of Modest Mouse
    "The custom concern for the people
    is to build up monuments and steeples
    to wear out our eyes."

    Ellis Paul - Bless Your Sweet Mistakes

    Pop the cork, a champagne glass
    Raise to the future, drink to the past
    Thank the Lord for the friends he cast,
    In the play he wrote for you.

    And if you love the girl man, light up a torch
    Blaze a trail to her front porch
    Kiss her til your lips are scorched
    Til the rain comes down on you

    Chorus
    Bless your sweet mistakes,
    That crumble you down to your knees.
    That brought you to this place
    Changing you by degrees...
    When change was just what you needed...
    What you needed...

    So if you live your life in a three piece suit,
    In a cocktail dress, or combat boots
    You pick your path and you walk your truth
    And the world will come round to you.

    It's a long strange ride, I can't tell you why
    But there's a place in your pocket where peace can abide
    You pull it out, it's a compass, a guide
    And it will put a little soul on you.

    Chorus

    And in this wild blue world
    There is a soul weavin' fine feelin' girl
    But you've got to walk in paradise to find a pearl
    If you only believe,
    You'll get what you need... what you needed...

    Conquer your fear and you'll master the game,
    Life is always and never the same.
    Use a little faith to light the flame ,
    And I know you'll connect to you.

    Chorus

    Pop the cork, a champagne glass
    Raise to the future, drink to the past
    Thank the Lord for the friends he cast,
    In the play he wrote for you.

    Smog- Dress Sexy at my Funeral
    And when it comes your turn to speak before the crowd
    Tell them about the time we did it
    On the beach with fireworks above us
    On the railroad tracks with the gravel in your back
    In the back room of a crowded bar
    And in the graveyard where my body now rests


    Metallica - The Unforgiven II
    Lay beside me, under wicked sky
    Through black of day, dark of night, we share this pair of lives


    The Mountain Goats - Moon Over Goldsboro
    Moon in the sky, cold as a stone
    Spend each night in your arms, always wake up alone.


    Counting Crows - Anna Begins
    She's talking in her sleep.
    It's keeping me awake. And Anna begins to toss and turn.
    And every word is nonsense but I understand and,
    Oh lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing.

    Kings of Convenience - Surprise Ice

    Spoiler:
    Show
    When past sometimes takes you with soft hands
    Forceless it pulls you to your chair
    Hides you away from these half days
    Sunless, at the end of the year

    The air is like a knife cutting through you
    A room in the house is always warm
    Stretched down on the bathroom floor thinking
    Of fair days your future may hold

    Love comes like surprise ice on the water
    Love comes like surprise ice at dawn
    Love comes at dawn

    Deprived all the light of colours
    The world ends at your window tree
    Darkness creates these illusions
    That pale days can teach you to see

    Rain falls but no life is given
    Weeks pass, no progress is made
    Past sometimes takes you with soft hands
    And all that surrounds you will fade


    Idlewild - El Capitan

    Spoiler:
    Show
    By the harbour, I harbour the strangest memories
    Older than I could ever be
    Stranded in nostalgia
    So tonight I'll try harder
    But it's hard to fix this spotlight on me
    In a cast that's taken places
    I'm unsure of where I want to be

    Stand up,
    stand up,
    And stand down,
    I'll climb El Capitan,
    And jump off to cheers from the crowd,

    Stand up,
    Stand up,
    And stand out,
    And I hope you take your camera,
    To photograph my tears as they hit the ground,

    No one even listens
    The same way that no one ever laughs
    I'm taking the car out of the snow
    And wondering where the summer went to
    Circled by your secrets
    I'm hoping they don't include me
    At least I'm in good company
    Because there's no one else around
    Except me

    Stand up,
    Stand up,
    And stand out,
    I'll climb El Capitan,
    Just to watch the world slow itself,

    Stand up,
    Stand up,
    And stand out,
    And I hope you took your camera
    Silence makes the loudest sound

    It seems far too easy to say the same things
    I'll choose my own way to use my life up
    Finally found a new way
    Say the same things
    In imaginary ways
    I'll use my life up

    You were looking at pictures in the distance
    Hoping to see the future in your pictures
    Of the distance hoping to see
    The future looking at pictures in the distance


    Bon Iver - The Wolves

    Someday my pain, someday my pain
    Will mark you
    Harness your blame, harness your blame
    And walk through

    With the wild wolves around you
    In the morning, I'll call you
    Send it farther on

    Solace my game, solace my game
    It stars you
    Swing wide your crane, swing wide your crane
    And run me through

    And the story's all over you
    In the morning I'll call you
    Can't you find a clue when your eyes are all painted Sinatra blue

    What might have been lost
    What might have been lost

    Don't bother me

    What might have been lost
    Don't bother me

    Across The Universe - John Lennon
    Simple Twist of Fate - Bob Dylan


    Mr. Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan (Esp. the verse)
    Then take me disappearin’ through the smoke rings of my mind
    Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
    The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
    Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
    Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
    Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
    With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
    Let me forget about today until tomorrow

    Us and them
    and after all we're only ordinary men
    me and you
    God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
    forward he cried from the rear
    and the front rank died
    and the General sat, and the lines on the map
    moved from side to side

    Black and blue
    and who knows which is which and who is who
    up and down
    and in the end it's only round and round and round
    haven't you heard it's a battle of words
    the poster bearer cried
    listen, son, said the man with the gun
    there's room for you inside

    Down and out
    it can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
    with, without
    and who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about
    out of the way, it's a busy day
    I've got things on my mind
    for want of the price of tea and a slice
    the old man died

    The night of the living dead is on its way
    With a credit report for duty call
    It's a lifetime guarantee
    Stuffed in a coffin 10% more free
    Red light special at the mausoleum

    Give me something that I need
    Satisfaction guaranteed to you
    What's the consolation prize?
    Economy sized dreams of hope

    When I was a kid I thought
    I wanted all the things that I haven't got
    Oh. I learned the hardest way
    Then I realized what it took
    To tell the difference between
    Thieves and crooks
    A lesson learned to me and you

    Give me something that I need
    Satisfaction guaranteed
    Because I'm thinking about
    A brand new hope
    The one I've never known
    Cause now I know
    It's all that I wanted

    Saw you flying by
    Flash of Turquoise Blue
    I just had to try
    To keep your life in view

    My bird of paradise
    Sweet bird of paradise

    Wish that I could fly
    I'd be beside you now
    But I can only sigh
    And watch you circle round

    My bird of paradise
    Sweet bird of paradise
    My bird of paradise
    Sweet bird of paradise
    My bird of paradise

    So you fly away
    When will you come again
    So I can watch you play
    In the pouring rain

    My bird of paradise

    She came from Providence,
    the one in Rhode Island
    Where the old world shadows hang
    heavy in the air
    She packed her hopes and dreams
    like a refugee
    Just as her father came across the sea
    She heard about a place people were smilin'
    They spoke about the red man's way,
    and how they loved the land
    And they came from everywhere
    to the Great Divide
    Seeking a place to stand
    or a place to hide

    Down in the crowded bars,
    out for a good time,
    Can't wait to tell you all,
    what it's like up there
    And they called it paradise
    I don't know why
    Somebody laid the mountains low
    while the town got high

    Then the chilly winds blew down
    Across the desert
    through the canyons of the coast, to
    the Malibu
    Where the pretty people play,
    hungry for power
    to light their neon way
    and give them things to do

    Some rich men came and raped the land,
    Nobody caught 'em
    Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus,
    people bought 'em
    And they called it paradise
    The place to be
    They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

    You can leave it all behind
    and sail to Lahaina
    just like the missionaries did, so many years ago
    They even brought a neon sign: "Jesus is coming"
    Brought the white man's burden down
    Brought the white man's reign

    Who will provide the grand design?
    What is yours and what is mine?
    'Cause there is no more new frontier
    We have got to make it here

    We satisfy our endless needs and
    justify our bloody deeds,
    in the name of destiny and the name of God

    And you can see them there,
    On Sunday morning
    They stand up and sing about
    what it's like up there
    They call it paradise
    I don't know why
    You call someplace paradise,
    kiss it goodbye

    I was thinking Death Cab and Follow you into the dark

    "Love of mine some day you will die
    But I'll be close behind
    I'll follow you into the dark

    No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
    Just our hands clasped so tight
    Waiting for the hint of a spark
    If heaven and hell decide
    That they both are satisfied
    Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs

    If there's no one beside you
    When your soul embarks
    Then I'll follow you into the dark"

    But then Nick Cave

    "I don't believe in an interventionist God
    But I know, darling, that you do
    But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
    Not to intervene when it came to you
    Not to touch a hair on your head
    To leave you as you are
    And if He felt He had to direct you
    Then direct you into my arms

    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms

    And I don't believe in the existence of angels
    But looking at you I wonder if that's true
    But if I did I would summon them together
    And ask them to watch over you
    To each burn a candle for you
    To make bright and clear your path
    And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
    And guide you into my arms

    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms

    And I believe in Love
    And I know that you do too
    And I believe in some kind of path
    That we can walk down, me and you
    So keep your candlew burning
    And make her journey bright and pure
    That she will keep returning
    Always and evermore

    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms, O Lord
    Into my arms"
