Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still
W.T. Wrighton, J.E. Carpenter

It's been a year since last we met
We may never meet again
I have struggled to forget
But the struggle was in vain
For her voice lives on the breeze
And her spirit comes at will
In the midnight on the seas, her bright smile haunts me still
In the midnight on the seas, her bright smile haunts me still

I have sailed a falling sky
And I have chartered hazard's path
I have seen the storm arise
Like a giant in his wrath
Every danger I have known
That a reckless life can fill
Though her presence is now flown, her bright smile haunts me still
Though her presence is now flown, her bright smile haunts me still

At the first sweet dawn of light
When I gaze upon the deep
Her form still greets my sight
While the stars their vigils keep
When I close my aching eyes
Sweet dreams my memory fill
And from sleep when I arise, her bright smile haunts me still
And from sleep when I arise, her bright smile haunts me still

Hear it. Modern version.

Dark Horses
Switchfoot

I've made my mistakes
I've seen my heart cave in
I got my scars
I've been to hell and back again

Born for the blue skies
We'll survive the rain
Born for the sunrise
We'll survive the pain

We're singing hey, you can't count us out
We've been running up against the crowd
Yeah, we are the dark horses
We're singing wait, it's not over now
We've been down but we've never been out
Yeah, we are the dark horses

We found a way out
The city takes everything it can
But outside the crowds
I can feel my lungs again

Born for the blue skies
We'll survive the rain
Born for the sun rise
We will survive the pain

We're singing
La la la la la la la

Were singing we don't care what they say
We know we'll find a way
Yeah, we are the dark horses

Keep running with the dark horses
Stand up for the dark horses
Hope makes the blood change courses
Keep running with the dark horses
Stand up for the dark horses

Writing Inspiration. Hear it.

Hold Me Down
Halsey

My demons are begging me to open up my mouth
I need them, mechanically make the words come out
They fight me, vigorous and angry, watch them pounce
Ignite me, licking up the flames they bring about

Chorus:
I sold my soul to a three-piece
And he told me I was holy
He’s got me down on both knees
But it’s the devil that’s tryna
Hold me down, hold me down
Sneaking out the back door, make no sound
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for
Hold me down, hold me down
Throw me in the deep end, watch me drown
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

Selfish, taking what I want and call it mine
I’m helpless, clinging to a little bit of spine
They rush me, telling me I’m running out of time
They shush me (sssh), walking me across a fragile line

(Chorus)

Hold me down now, Hold me down now
Hold me down

(Chorus)

Hear it.

Dark Necessities
Red Hot Chili Peppers

Coming out to the light of day
We got many moons than a deeper place
So I keep an eye on the shadow's smile
To see what it has to say
You and I both know
Everything must go away
Ah, what do you say?
Spinning off, head is on my heart
It's like a bit of light and a touch of dark
You got sneak attacked from the zodiac
But I see your eyes spark
Keep the breeze and go
Blow by blow and go away
Oh, what do you say?

Chorus:
Yeah, you don't know my mind
You don't know my kind
Dark necessities are part of my design
Tell the world that I'm falling from the sky
Dark necessities are part of my design

Stumble down to the parking lot
You got no time for the afterthought
They're like ice cream for an astronaut
Well that's me looking for weed
Turn the corner and
Find the world and show command
Playing the hand

Chorus

Do you want this love of mine?
The darkness helps to sort the shine
Do you want it, do you want it now?
Do you want it overtime?
The darkness helps to sort the shine
Do you want it, do you want it now?

Pick you up like a paperback
With the track record of a maniac
So I'm moving in and we unpack
It's the same as yesterday
Honey where we roll
Everything must go away
Ah, what do you say?

Chorus

Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah

Hear it.

Little Hell
City and Colour

What if I can't be all that you need me to be
We've got a good thing going, we have some promises to keep
But my addiction it can be such a detriment
Please believe in this my dear, I am more than penitent

What if everything's just the way that it will be
Could it be that I am meant to cause you all this grief
My war ships are lying off the coast of your delicate heart
And my aim is steady and true as it's been right from the start

There's a degree of difficulty in dealing with me
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall, stare into the past and forget it all

So when we leave it'll be a quick midnight escape
We'll disconnect ourselves from all of yesterday
I'll dig for water and fashion our very own wishing well
Then we'll throw our coins down hoping to rid us of this little hell

There's a degree of difficulty in dealing with me
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories.
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall, stare into the past and forget it all

Will we get out of this little hell

Hear it.

From Eden
Hozier

Babe, there's something tragic about you
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?

Babe, there's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me

No tired sighs, no rolling eyes, no irony
No 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Babe, there's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Where to begin

Babe, there's something broken about this
But I might be hoping about this.
Oh, what a sin

To the strand a picnic plan for you and me
A rope in hand for your other man to hang from a tree

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to hide outside your door

Hear it.

Drowning
The Eden Project

I think I lost my mind a while ago
'Cause I've been seeing some ghosts
And I'd be lying if I told you I'm fine
But I lie
Yeah, these thoughts I would never speak out loud
I've seen you cry but I've never seen you shout
Like a hurricane, these shots don't ricochet
Sight blurred I'm walkin' dazed, girl I'm ***ing faded
Or maybe wasted, I can't remember how it happened
Oh, I dont know my limits at all
I'm sinking down into my thoughts
Oh my God

But so what if I drank too much
This ain't love, its just a firefight
And even if its not enough
I'll say it once I swear I never lied
But this is the last time (x4)
You'll ever bring me down
Girl you know I'm drownin'
And I keep goin' down
But I'll swear that I'm not , I'm not, I'm not

Its friendly fire and sunlight
The aftermath of one too many
Words I said, when I should of said nothing at all
At all
I gotta stop overthinking
And missing
What could have been
You were never even really here
And still were are spinning
Just liars and cheaters
Right back where we started
But it don't get easier
I am drowning
In liquor and apathy
Will be the death of me

But so what if I drank too much
This aint love, its just a firefight
And even if its not enough
I'll say it once I swear I never lied
But this is the last time (x4)
You'll ever bring me down

Hear it.

Narcolepsy
Third Eye Blind

I'm on a train
But there's no one at the helm
And there's a demon in my brain
Who starts to overwhelm whelm whelm whelm whelm

And there it goes
My last chance for peace
You lay me down
But I get no release
And I say I, I try to keep awake
I try to swim beneath
I try to keep awake
But I, I can feel this narcolepsy slide
Into another nightmare

And there's a demon in my head who starts to play
A nightmare tape loop of what went wrong yesterday
And I hold my breath till it's more than I can take
And I close my eyes, I dream that I'm awake
I try to keep awake

But I, I can feel this narcolepsy slide
Into another nightmare

I read dead Russian authors, volumes at a time
I write everything down except what's on my mind
Cause my greatest fear is that sucking sound
And then I know that I'll never get back out
And there's a bone in my hand that connects to a drink
In a crowded room where the glasses clink
And I'll buy you a beer and we'll drink it deep
Because that keeps me from falling asleep I said

How'd you like to be alone and drowning? (x4)

Still I find this narcolepsy slide slide
Into another nightmare
Keep awake, keep awake, keep awake
And I can feel this narcolepsy slide

Hear it

Little Wing
Jimi Hendrix

Well, she's walking through the clouds,
With a circus mind that's running wild,
Butterflies and Zebras,
And Moonbeams and fairy tales.
That's all she ever thinks about.
Riding with the wind.

When I'm sad, she comes to me,
With a thousand smiles she gives to me free.
It's alright, she says it's alright,
Take anything you want from me,
Anything.
Fly on little wing.

Hear it. (Cover by Micah Brown)

Hurricane
Fleurie

I can feel your heart hanging in the air
I'm counting every step as you climb the stairs
It's buried in your bones, I see it in your closed eyes
Turning in, this is harder than we know
We hold it in the most when we're wearing thin

Coming like a hurricane, I take it in real slow
The world is spinning like a weathervane
Fragile and composed
I am breaking down again
I am aching now to let you in

Seven times again when you are not awake
Seven times the flame, too much to take
The sky burns red against your skin
The world we know turns in the wind

Coming like a hurricane, I take it in real slow
The world is spinning like a weathervane
Fragile and composed
I am breaking down again
I am aching now to let you in

It's all we know, all we know, the hurricane
Falling slow, falling slow in the pouring rain
It's all we know, all we know, the hurricane
Falling slow, falling slow in the pouring rain
Watch it go, watch it go, we stay the same
And I don't know, I don't know how it can change
Watch it go, watch it go, we stay the same
And I don't know, I don't know how it can change
And I don't know, I don't know how it can change
It's all we know, all we know, the hurricane

Hear it.

Touch Me (Acoustic)
Neo Geo

I could never underestimate my fate
Closing face to make it so hard to relate
I'm just trying to get back to where I started

And all this friction that I can't seem to escape
Every time I turn around, it's just too late
It's no wonder I'm begging you just to
I'm begging you just to

[chorus]
Touch me, feel me, love me
Before I self-destruct, I need to be free
Even if it ends all that I love
I don't care, care
I don't care
I don't care anymore

I'll disclose my every obvious mistake
It's the everything I need your love to wait
Picking up this mess, I'm always back to where I started

And mister, I won't ever let you catch my name
I'm running from the thought of being all the same
It's a shame, but I'm begging you just to
I'm begging you just to
I'm begging you just to

[chorus x2]

There's so many distractions
All these boys with their actions
They keep driving me completely crazy
And it's no wonder that I
Must have you here all the time
I can't see myself without you baby

Roses are red, and violets are blue
Who would've thought I'd give into you?
Roses are red, and violets are blue
Who would've thought I'd rip you, rip you in two?
Rip you in two

[chorus x2]

Touch me, feel me, love me (ah ah ah ah)
Touch me, feel me, love me (I need you right here)
Touch me, feel me, love me (ah ah ah ah)
Touch me, feel me
I don't care anymore

Hear it.

The Sky Is A Neighborhood
Foo Fighters

[Verse 1]
The sky is a neighborhood, So keep it down
The heart is a storybook, A star burned out
The sky is a neighborhood, Don't make a sound
Lights coming up ahead, Don't look now

[Pre-Chorus]
The sky is a neighborhood (x2)
Don't look now

[Chorus x2]
Oh my dear Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
Bangin' on the ceiling (x2)
Keep it down

[Verse 2]
Mind is a battlefield, All hope is gone
Trouble to the right and left, Whose side you're on?
Thoughts like a minefield, I'm a ticking bomb
Maybe you should watch your step, Don't get lost

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus x2]

[Bridge]
The sky is a neighborhood

[Verse 3]
The heart is a storybook, A star burned out
Something coming up ahead, Don't look now

[Chorus x2]

(The sky is a neighborhood)
Oh my dear, Heaven is a big bang now
Gotta get to sleep somehow
(The sky is a neighborhood)
Bangin' on the ceiling (x2)
Keep it down

[Outro]
The sky is a neighborhood

Hear it.

No Roots
Alice Merton

I like digging holes and hiding things inside them
When I'll grow old I hope I won't forget to find them
'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
I built a home and wait for someone to tear it down
Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running
'Cause I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
And a thousand times I've seen this road
A thousand times

[Chorus x2]
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots uh uh uh uh
I've got no roots uh uh uh uh

I like standing still, boy that's just a wishful plan
Ask me where I come from, I'll say a different land
But I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
I can't get the numbers, and play the guessing name
It's just the place that changes, the rest is still the same
But I've got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
And a thousand times I've seen this road
A thousand times

[Chorus x2]

I like digging holes
Hiding things inside them
When I'll grow old
I won't forget to find them
I like digging holes
Hiding things inside them
When I'll grow old
I won't forget to find them
I've got no roots
No roots

[Chorus x2]

Hear it.

No Mercy
PVRIS

We’ve made such a mess of this place,
There’s blood stains on your face.
Watch everybody kneel and pray,
In vein, in her name.
God, everybody’s sleep walking
but they think they’re awake.
Our hands always covered in shame
But it won’t wash away.

There’s blood in the water but it tastes so sweet.

Show me no mercy
And let it rain, let it rain.
Show me no mercy
And let it rain.
If you’re gonna make it hurt show me no mercy.

This place is going up in flames and we watch and we wait.
And I think I kind of like the way it burns in my face.

There’s blood in the water but it tastes so sweet.
The sky is on fire, let it rain on me.

Show me no mercy
And let it rain, let it rain.
Show me no mercy
And let it rain.
If you’re gonna make it hurt show me no mercy.

There’s blood in the water.
There’s blood in the water.
There’s blood in the water but it tastes so sweet.
There’s blood in the water.
There’s blood in the water.
There’s blood in the water but it tastes so sweet.

Hear it.
