Paramore – Misguided ghosts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm0KNzM2nJg

I’m going away for a while
But I’ll be back
Don’t try to follow me
‘Cause I’ll return as soon as possible
See, I’m trying to find my place
But it might not be here where I feel safe

We all learn to make mistakes
And run from them, from them
With no direction
We’ll run from them, from them
With no conviction

‘Cause I’m just one of those ghosts
Travelin’ endlessly
Don’t need no roads
In fact, they follow me
And we just go in circles

And now I’m told that this is life
That pain is just a simple compromise
So we can get what we want out of it

Would someone care to classify?
Our broken hearts and twisted minds
So I can find someone to rely on
And run to them, to them
Full speed ahead
Oh, you are not useless
We are just

Misguided ghosts
Travelin’ endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there’s no one road
We should not be the same
But I’m just a ghost
And still they echo me
They echo me in circles

Flyleaf – again

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSGVdeLswS8

I love the way that your heart breaks
With every injustice and deadly fate
Praying it all will be new
And living like it all depends on you

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
And only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again

Love that you’re never satisfied
With face value wisdom and happy lies
You take what they say and go back and cry
You’re so close to me that you nearly died

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
And only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again

They don’t have to understand you
Be still
Wait and know I understand you
Be still
Be still
Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
And only surrender will help you now
The floodgates are breaking and pouring out

Here you are down on your knees
Trying to find air to breathe
Right where I want you to be again
I love you please see and believe again

Here you are down on your knees again
Trying to find air to breathe again
Right where I want you to be again
See and believe

Flyleaf – This Close

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mN-kNgy_yU

I had a dream that we were dead
But we pretended we still lived
With no regrets, we never bled
And we took everything life could give
And came up broken, empty handed in the end

In the hearts of the blind
Something you’ll never find
Is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I’m screaming

I dont know who I am anymore
Not once in life have I been real
But I’ve never felt this close before
I’ve been looking in your window
I’ve been dressing in your clothes
I’ve been walking dead
Watching you
Long enough to know I can’t go on

Had a dream that fire fell
From an opening in the sky
And someone warned me of this hell
And I spit in his naive eye
And left him crying for my soul
He said would die

In the hearts of the blind
Something you’ll never find
Is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I’m screaming

I dont know who I am anymore
Not once in life have I been real
But I’ve never felt this close before
I’ve been looking in your window
I’ve been dressing in your clothes
I’ve been walking dead
Watching you
Long enough to know I can’t go on

In the hearts of the blind
Something you’ll never find
Is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I’m screaming

I dont know who I am anymore
Not once in life have I been real
But I’ve never felt this close before
I’ve been looking in your window
I’ve been dressing in your clothes
I’ve been walking dead
Watching you
Long enough to know I can’t go on

I’ve been looking in your window
I’ve been dressing in your clothes
I’ve been walking dead
Watching you
Long enough to know I can’t go on

Paramore- Last Hope

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBatuRGZAmA

I don’t even know myself at all
I thought I would be happy by now
The more I try to push it
I realise – gotta let go of control

Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Just let it happen

It’s just a spark
But it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out, no one’s around
It keeps glowing

Every night I try my best to dream
Tomorrow makes it better
Then I wake up to the cold reality
And not a thing has changed

But it will happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen

It’s just a spark
But it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out, no one’s around
It keeps glowing

It’s just a spark
But it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out, no one’s around
It keeps glowing

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
And the blood in these veins isn’t pumping any less than it ever has
And that’s the hope I have, the only thing I know that’s keeping me alive

Alive

Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen

Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen

It’s just a spark
But it’s enough to keep me going
(So if I let go of control now, I can be strong)
And when it’s dark out, no one’s around
It keeps glowing

It’s just a spark
But it’s enough to keep me going
(So if I keep my eyes closed, with nobody home)
And when it’s dark out, no one’s around
It keeps glowing

Depeche Mode- Wrong

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH2UB2uD-tA

Wrong
Wrong
Wrong
Wrong

I was born with the wrong sign
In the wrong house
With the wrong ascendancy
I took the wrong road
That led to
The wrong tendencies
I was in the wrong place
At the wrong time
For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
On the wrong day
Of the wrong week
Used the wrong method with the wrong technique

Wrong

Wrong

There’s something wrong with me chemically
Something wrong with me inherently
The wrong mix
In the wrong genes
I reached the wrong ends
By the wrong means
It was the wrong plan
In the wrong hands
The wrong theory for the wrong man
The wrong eyes
On the wrong prize
The wrong questions with the wrong replies

Wrong

Wrong

I was marching to the wrong drum
With the wrong scum
Pissing out the wrong energy
Using all the wrong lines
And the wrong signs
With the wrong intensity
I was on the wrong page
Of the wrong book
With the wrong rendition of the wrong look
With the wrong moon
Every wrong night
With the wrong tune played till it sounded right, yeah

Wrong

Wrong (too long) [x6]

I was born with the wrong sign
In the wrong house
With the wrong ascendancy
I took the wrong road
That led to
The wrong tendencies
I was in the wrong place
At the wrong time
For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
On the wrong day
Of the wrong week
Used the wrong method with the wrong technique

Wrong

Florence and the Machine- Breaking down (acoustic version)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su2pPuwxPm8

All alone
It was always there you see
And even on my own
It was always standing next to me

I can see it coming from the edge of the room
Creeping in the streetlight
Holding my hand in the pale gloom
Can you see it coming now?

Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down

All alone
Even when I was a child
I’ve always known
There was something to be frightened of

You know that I can see you coming from the edge of the room
Creeping in the streetlight
Holding my hand in the pale gloom
Can you see it coming now?

Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down

All alone
On the edge of sleep
My old familiar friend
Comes and lies down next to me

And I can see you coming from the edge of the room
Smiling in the streetlight
Even with my eyes shut tight
I still see you coming now

Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down again
Oh, I think I’m breaking down
