The Civil Wars - Dust To Dust

It's not your eyes
It's not what you say
It's not your laughter
That gives you away
You're just lonely
You've been lonely, too long

Oh, you're acting your thin disguise
All your perfectly delivered lines
They don't fool me
You've been lonely, too long

Let me in the wall
You've built around
We can light a match
And burn it down
Let me hold your hand
And dance 'round and 'round the flames
In front of us
Dust to dust

You've held your head up
You've fought the fight
You bear the scars
You've done your time
Listen to me
You've been lonely, too long

Let me in the walls
You've built around
We can light a match
And burn them down
Let me hold your hand
And dance 'round and 'round the flames
In front of us
Dust to dust

You're like a mirror, reflecting me
Takes one to know one, so take it from me
You've been lonely
You've been lonely, too long
We've been lonely
We've been lonely, too long

sleep don't visit
so i choke on sun
and the days blur into one
and the backs of my eyes
hum with things i've never done

sheets are swaying
from an old clothesline
like a row of captured ghosts
over old dead grass
was never much but we've made the most

welcome home

ships are launching
from my chest
some have names but most do not
if you find one please
let me know what piece i've lost

peel the scars from
off my back
i don't need them anymore
you can throw them out
or keep them in your mason jars

i've come home

all my nightmares escape my head
bar the door, please don't let them in
you were never supposed to leave
now my head's splitting at the seams
and i don't know if i can

here, beneath my lungs
i feel your thumbs
press into my skin again

you, beneath the bed
i know all your tricks
i've seen you watching
i've seen you drifting away
i've seen you floating along
i've seen you disappear

there ain't a cloud in sight
through the snow and the branches
i can count all your teeth
yeah i can count all your teeth

now the bed's on fire
and the ceiling's gone
and your mom and dad still sing the same old song
don't scare me off now
i'm your only friend
don't scare me off now
i'm your only friend

now you're drifting away
now you're floating along
and soon you'll disappear

i closed my eyes and saw my father's sins
they covered me like a second skin
i peeled them off and sure, i bled a bit
but now i'm free to sink my own damn ship
i cut my branch down from my family tree
to start a fire in the living room
now the house is just ash
it's time -- sink or swim

let the river in
if blood is thicker than water
then let the river in
we might drift a ways
but we've got thick skin

let the river in
if blood is thicker than water
then let the river in
we might drift a ways
but we'll find our way again

i was born when they took my name
when the world turned wicked
when i joined their game
but i turned and fought them
like you always knew i'd do

i sat and dreamed at the foot of your bed
you split my skull
and reached inside my head
and pulled out the pictures
i'd been wishing to forget
and you stitched me up then
and wiped the blood from off my chin

now i sit on the rooftop's edge
the muddy street beneath my swollen head
trying to forget you
to believe we've never met

and the sky is wrecked
full of rotting clouds
from chimney mouths
spewing smoke around
and i can't stop coughing
my lungs just won't calm down
but still i keep grinning
as the blood from my face stains the ground

a bird, caught in the wires
bleating for help i can't provide
i'm not that big
i hope for the best
but nothing changes
i'm sorry

but i was blessed with bad eyes
there's a lot that i miss
but i don't mind
i'm not that old
i'll find out what broke me soon enough

the ghost inside my head
it never sleeps
it just rearranges thoughts and leaves my numb for weeks
but i'm okay
yeah, i feel fine
because i know there's more than one way to lose my mind
to lose my mind
to lose my mind
to lose my mind

the crows are at the fence
they never blink
they just sharpen their claws and bear their twisted teeth
but i won't bend
and i won't move
don't have a lot left, just anger and something to prove
so i can't lose
so i can't lose
so i can't lose

the cold spreads through the house
it bites my ears
i can't feel my hands or feet and i'm too scared to sleep
and now the ghosts
are on the porch
got knives in hand -- oh no, i think i've seen this before
and i might lose
and i might lose
and i might lose

and all this time
i've been watching you sleep
and the strangest things have been happening to me
and all this time
i've been watching you breathe
and the strangest things have been happening to me

well i left my home on hollow bones
while you were curled and sleeping
and i wandered far beneath a concrete star
and slept along the highways

but even though i am lost all the time
i've got hooks in my sides that you left there
but you're not the same, you died along the way
now we're ghosts and we're praying for winter

well i found a wheel that squeaks and squeals
and i left it on your doorstep
because i heard that you might be broken too
and i thought it'd keep you company

but even though i am lost all the time
i've got hooks in my sides that you left there
but you're not the same, you died along the way
now we're ghosts and we're praying for winter

i was ten years old
bloody nosed in my face
and i watched you watching
in the darkest of the day
you said that i'd be fine
but first i wore you with hurts
it takes a little hell
to know what heaven is worth
that some other time
you gotta lose what's right
for you to know
what's really worth the fight

taking over this town they should worry
but these problems aside i think i taught you well
that we won't run, and we won't run, and we won't run

and in the winter night sky ships are sailing
looking down on these bright blue city lights
and they won't wait, and they won't wait, and they won't wait
we're here to stay, we're here to stay, we're here to stay

howling ghosts -- they reappear
in mountains that are stacked with fear
but you're a king and i'm a lionheart
lionheart

his crown lit up the way as we moved slowly
past the wondering eyes of the ones that were left behind
though far away, though far away, though far away
we're still the same, we're still the same, we're still the same

howling ghosts -- they reappear
in mountains that are stacked with fear
but you're a king and i'm a lionheart
and in the sea that's painted black
creatures lurk below the deck
but you're a king and i'm a lionheart

and as the world comes to an end
i'll be there to hold your hand
'cause you're my king and i'm your lionheart
lionheart

Turn the ugly light off god
Wanna feel the night
Everyday it shines down on me
Don't you think that i see
Don't you think that i see what it's all about
Hard to look the other way
While the world passes me by
And everyone is trying to bum me out

It's a pretty big world god
And i am awful small
Everyday they rain down on me
Flower in a hailstorm
Flower in a hailstorm
I'm living for the drought
I could throw it back at them
But then i play their game
Everyone is trying to bum me out

When i came into this world they slapped me
And everyday since then i'm slapped again
Tomorrow's king: an unsightly coward
You see, i know i'm gonna win

Turn the ugly light off god
Don't wanna see my face
Everyday it will betray me
Don't you think that i know
Don't you think that i know
What they're talking about
If they step on me tonight
They're gonna pay someday
Everyone is trying to bum me out

she shines
in a world full of ugliness
she matters when everything is meaningless

fragile
she doesn't see her beauty
she tries to get away
sometimes
it's just that nothing seems worth saving
I can't watch her slip away

I won't let you fall apart
I won't let you fall apart
I won't let you fall apart
I won't let you fall apart

she reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by
hoping someone can see
if I could fix myseld I'd---
but it's too late for me

I wont let you fall apart
I won't let you fall apart
I won't let you fall apart
I won't let you fall apart

we'll find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide
I'll build a wall and we can keep them on the other side
But they keep waiting
And picking
And picking
And picking...

it's something I have to do
(i won't let you fall apart)
I was there, too
(i won't let you fall apart)
before everything else
(i won't let you fall apart)
I was like you
(i won't let you fall apart)

everyone is noah
everyone is the ark
everyone has to build themselves up
when heaven's cruel

and everyone is noah
everyone is the ark
everyone has to gather souls around them
To feel useful, and loving, and loved

and everyone is noah
everyone is the ark
everyone ends up talking to the sky
or looking the elephant in the eye

everyone is noah
everyone is the ark
everyone will turn their hands into the wood
when they really think that they really should
and i'm really sorry for your loss
i can't imagine how that feels
please build yourself up
heaven's cruel
everyone has found themselves at the end of their rope
looking up at the boat
saying, "i don't know--

i don't know if i can call this home
i don't know if i can call this home
i don't know if i can call this home
i don't know if i can call this home"

i regretfully withdraw my offer to try to improve myself
i sincerely believe the results would be a disaster

i held the chisel against my cheekbone
and i beheld the face of my true master

you've gotta love the house you're in
you've gotta love the house you're in

sat out on the balcony
doing blow, playing chess by myself
there is a pseudointellectual in me
oh but luckily there's something else
a frog with its tongue stuck to the inside of my chest
a crow that keeps banging up against the glass
a well-intentioned demon somewhere within
maybe the last one's not so bad
maybe the last one's the main attraction

but you've gotta love the house you're in
you've gotta love the house you're in
'cause someone keeps writing your name all over the walls
someone keeps writing your name all over the walls

i would like to be more for you
than just a ghost lighting up in the courtyard
sometimes i am an actual man standing perfectly still in the dark
starless future folklore past
so leave the shade halfway open
leave the shade halfway drawn
i am writing a line for the stars
happiness is waiting for you to fall

American Young - Love Is War

Young lovers in a picture frame
Ever notice how there ain't no rain
Nobody hangs hard times on the wall
You won't see it in an 8 by 10
But there's a storm every now and then
A slamming door down the hall

Sometimes love is a white flag
Sometimes love is standing tall
Sometimes love is a feather
Sometimes a cannon ball
But it's worth fighting for (it's worth fighting for)
Baby, sometimes love is war

An old couple on a front porch swing
On a walk down memory lane
Been through the fire and back again
Through the clear and the cloudy skies
Still love in each other's eyes
Sometimes love is war but sometimes you win

Sometimes love is a white flag
Sometimes love is standing tall
Sometimes love is a feather
Sometimes a cannon ball
And it's worth fighting for (yeah, it's worth fighting for)
Baby, sometimes love is war

Sometimes love is all that can save us
Sometimes love can kill a man
Sometimes love is a soft touch
Or a pistol in your hand

Sometimes love is a white flag
Sometimes love is standing tall
Sometimes love is a feather
Sometimes a cannon ball
But it's worth fighting for (it's worth fighting for)
Baby, sometimes love is
Baby, sometimes love is war

Lana Del Rey - Lolita

One, one

Would you be mine? Would you be my baby tonight?
Could be kissing my fruit punch lips in the bright sunshine
'Cause I like you quite a lot, everything you got, don't you know?
It's you that I adore, though I make the boys fall like dominoes

Kiss me in the d-a-r-k dark tonight
D-a-r-k do it my way
Kiss me in the p-a-r-k park tonight
P-a-r-k let them all say

Hey, Lolita, hey
Hey, Lolita, hey
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey, Lolita, hey
Hey, Lolita, hey
Whistle all you want but I'm not gonna say

No more skipping rope, skipping heart beats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

I could be yours, I could be your baby tonight
Topple you down from your sky forty stories high
Shining like a God, can't believe I got you and so
Look at what I bought, not a second thought, oh, Romeo

Kiss me in the d-a-r-k dark tonight
D-a-r-k do it my way
Kiss me in the p-a-r-k park tonight
P-a-r-k let them all say

Hey, Lolita, hey
Hey, Lolita, hey
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey, Lolita, hey
Hey, Lolita, hey
Whistle all you want but I'm not gonna say

No more skipping rope, skipping heart beats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

I want my cake and I want to eat it too
I want to have fun and be in love with you
I know that I'm a mess with my long hair and my sun tan, short dress, bare feet
I don't care what they say about me, what they say about me
Because I know that it's L.O.V.E.
You make me happy, you make me happy
And I never listen to anyone
Let them all say

Hey, Lolita, hey
Hey, Lolita, hey
I know what the boys want, I'm not gonna play
Hey, Lolita, hey
Hey, Lolita, hey
Whistle all you want but I'm not gonna say

No more skipping rope, skipping heart beats with the boys downtown
Just you and me feeling the heat even when the sun goes down

Lana Del Rey - Lucky Ones

Let's get out of this town, baby we're on fire
Everyone around here seems to be going down, down
If you stick with me, I can take you higher, and higher
It feels like all of our friends are lost
Nobody's found, found, found

I got so scared, I thought no one could save me
You came along scooped me up like a baby

Every now and then, the stars align
Boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones

Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time

Boy get into my car, got a bad desire
You know that we'll never leave if we don't get out, now, now
You're a careless con, and you're the crazy liar
But baby, nobody can compare to the way you get down, down, down

I tried so hard to act nice like a lady
You taught me that it was good to be crazy

Every now and then, the stars align
Boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones

Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time

Feels like, feels like, you know, it feels like
Falling in love for the first time
Feels like, you know, it feels like
Falling in love

Every now and then, the stars align
Boy and girl meet by the great design
Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones

Everybody told me love was blind
Then I saw your face and you blew my mind
Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time

light reflects from your shadow
it is more than i thought could exist
you move through the room
like breathing is easy
if someone believed me
they would be in love with you as i am
they would be in love with you as i am
they would be in love, love, love

and everyday
i am learning about you
the things that no one else sees
and the end comes too soon
like dreaming of angels
and leaving without them
and leaving without them
being as in love with you as i am
being as in love with you as i am
being as in love, love, love

and with words unspoken
a silent devotion
i know you know what i mean
and the end is unknown
but i think i'm ready
as long as you're with me
being as in love with you as i am
being as in love with you as i am
being in love, love, love

it will come around
but everything is now
i know everything is right now

the loneliness is a lot
and the nothing weighs a ton
i mean the nothing weighs a fxcking ton

that half of the bed
empty like a page
all the cursive claims you've yet to make

all the promising lines
bending like her spine
oh the whiteness that your pen could write

if you get these bandages off
you can stand, you can walk
leave these towels and gauze
you'll get up, you'll get out
into the sun

that's where we belong
we've been abed too long
all our weaknesses are growing strong

but winter always ends
with water on your lips
the april rain comes swinging in

get these bandages off
let me stand, let me walk
leave these towels and gauze
let me up, let me out
into the sun

cause come she will
oh come she will
she comes, oh
she comes, oh
she comes

all of my heroes sit up straight
they stare at the ground
they radiate

me, i'm mumbling in the kitchen for the sun to pay up
lonely is a ring on a cold coffee cup
i'm some sick hound
digging for bones
if it weren't for second chances, we'd all be alone

my hands they were strangers lost in the night
they're waving around in that parking lot light
i'm waiting in the wings while the trees undress
cupping my ear to hear the wind confess
i'm a ghost in the garden
scaring the crows
if it weren't for second chances, we'd all be alone

i'm running from nothing, no thoughts in my mind
oh my heart was all black
but i saw something shine
thought that part was yours, but it might just be mine
i could share it with you, if you gave me the time
i'm all bloody knuckles, longing for home
if it weren't for second chances, we'd all be alone

i'm a shot through the dark
i'm a black sinkhole
if it weren't for second chances, we'd all be alone

you are the hole in my head
you are the space in my bed
you are the silence in between
what i thought and what i said

you are the night time fear
you are the morning when it's clear
when it's over you will start
you're my head
you're my heart

no light no light in those bright blue eyes
i never knew daylight could be so violent
a revelation in the light of day
you can't choose what stays and what fades away

and i'd do anything to make you stay
no light no light
tell me what you want me to say

through the crowd
i was crying out
and in your place there were a thousand other faces
i was disappearing in plain sight
heaven help me
i need to make it right

you want a revelation
you wanna get it right
but it's a conversation
i just can't have tonight
you want a revelation
some kind of resolution
you want a revelation

no light no light in those bright blue eyes
i never knew daylight could be so violent
a revelation in the light of day
you can't choose what stays and what fades away

and i'd do anything to make you stay
no light no light
tell me what you want me to say

would you leave me
if i told you what i've done
and would you need me
if i told you what i've become
cause it's so easy
to say it to a crowd
but it's so hard, my love
to say it to you out loud

no light no light in those bright blue eyes
i never knew daylight could be so violent
a revelation in the light of day
you can't choose what stays and what fades away

and i'd do anything to make you stay
no light no light
tell me what you want me to say

you want a revelation
you wanna get it right
but it's a conversation
i just can't have tonight
you want a revelation
some kind of resolution
you want a revelation
tell me what you want me to say

i'm in the city you hated
my eyes are fallen
counting the clicks with the living dead
my eyes are red

i'm in the crush and i hate it
my eyes are fallen
i'm having trouble inside my skin
i try to keep the skeletons in

is it weird to be back in the south
and can they even tell
that the city girl was ever there
or anywhere

i'm having trouble inside my skin
i try to keep the skeletons in
i'll be a friend and a f*ckup
and everything
but i'll never be
anything you ever want me to be

i keep coming back here to where everything slipped
but i will not spill my guts out
i keep coming back here to where everything slipped
but i will not spill my guts out

i don't need any help to be breakable -- believe me
i know nobody else who can laugh along to any kind of joke
i won't need any help to be lonely when you leave m

it'll be easy to cover
gather my skeletons far inside
it'll be summer in dallas before i realize

i don't want you to grieve
but i want you to sympathize, alright
i can't blame you for losing your mind for a little while
so did i
i don't want you to change
but i want you to recognize
that i

it'll be easy to cover
gather your skeletons far inside
it'll be summer in dallas before you realize
that i'll never be
anything you ever want me to be

i keep coming back here where everything slipped
but i will not spill my guts out
i keep coming back here where everything slipped
but i will not spill my guts out

Miranda Lambert - Holding On To You

I've seen the south of France
I've seen the sunset dance
Over Sunset Avenue
I've seen the Rolling Stones
Got real high on rock and roll
Seen a lot of dreams come true
But ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you

Baby, over the years
I've been moved to tears
By the wonders of this old world
One of God's mysteries
That never fails to get to me
Is the moment when I'm holding on to you
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you

I've seen a newborn child
Puts stars in her mama's eyes
And i pray to the man in the moon
I got drunk with the highway men
Felt the burn of the desert wind
Seen some promising I-dos
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you

Baby, over the years
I've been moved to tears
By the wonders of this old world
One of God's mysteries
That never fails to get to me
Is the moment when I'm holding on to you
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you

Baby, we just rolled in
It's cold here in Michigan
Got a sold-out show tonight
Pretty soon we'll hit the stage
I'll feel the lights hit my face
We'll see some magic in the room
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you

No, no, no, no

Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you
Ain't no moment like when I'm holding on to you

when all of your flaws and all of my flaws
are laid out one by one
a wonderful part of the mess that we made
we pick ourselves undone

all of your flaws and all of my flaws
they lie there hand in hand
ones we've inherited, ones that we learned
they pass from man to man

there's a hole in my soul
i can't fill it i can't fill it
there's a hole in my soul
can you fill it can you fill it

you have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
and i have always buried them deep beneath the ground
dig them up; let's finish what we've started
dig them up, so nothing's left unturned

all of your flaws and all of my flaws,
when they have been exhumed
we'll see that we need them to be who we are
without them we'd be doomed

when all of your flaws
and all of my flaws are counted

"flaws," bastille

Keith Urban - Cop Car

We drove right past
That no trespassing sign
We sat on the tailgate
And watched the planes take off

We thought we had all night
There was no need to rush
That's when those cops
Came pulling up
And I thought
Man, ain't this some shhhh

Your daddy's gonna kill me
But if I survive tonight
I wouldn't change one thing
Baby, yeah
I know it sounds crazy

But there was somethin bout the way
The blue lights were shinin
Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
I was too busy watching you
Going wild child
To be worried about going to jail
You were thinking that
Running for it
Would make a good story
I was thinking you were crazy as hell
And you were so
Innocent
But you were stealing my heart
I fell in love in the back of a cop car

Man, they weren't playin
They sure threw those cuffs on quick
You tried to sweet talk 'em
They didn't fall for it
But I did
You were on the left
I was on the right
I knew you didn't smoke
When you asked him for a light
And I laughed
He got mad and slammed the door

Your daddy's gonna kill me
But if I survive tonight
I wouldn't change one thing
Baby, yeah
I know it sounds crazy

But there was somethin bout the way
The blue lights were shinin
Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
I was too busy watching you
Going wild child
To be worried about going to jail
You were thinking that
Running for it
Would make a good story
I was thinking you were crazy as hell
And you were so
Innocent
But you were stealing my heart
I fell in love in the back of a cop car

Side by side
And locked in tight
They were taking their time
But we didn't mind

We talked
And we laughed
We sat real close
By the time they let us go
I was already gone

But there was somethin bout the way
The blue lights were shinin
Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
I was too busy watching you
Going wild child
To be worried about going to jail
You were thinking that
Running for it
Would make a good story
I was thinking you were crazy as hell
And you were so
Innocent
But you were stealing my heart
I fell in love in the back of a cop car

Hozier - Take Me To Church

My lover's got humor
She's the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody's disapproval
I should've worshiped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
She's the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week

'We were born sick, ' you heard them say it

My Church offers no absolutes
She tells me, 'Worship in the bedroom.'
The only heaven I'll be sent to
Is when I'm alone with you—

I was born sick,
But I love it
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I'm a pagan of the good times
My lover's the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice

Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That's a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We've a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No Masters or Kings
When the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am Human
Only then I am Clean
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Tim McGraw - Shotgun Rider

Roll, won’t you come roll with me slow, fast, full speed
Girl wherever sweet time takes us
Hang, with me down this old road
Only god knows where we’ll go
Don’t matter long as I’ve got your love

I don’t ever want to wake up,
Lookin’ into someone else’s eyes
Another Voice calling me baby
On the other end of the phone
A new girl puttin’ on her makeup
Before dinner on Friday night
No I don’t ever wanna know, Oh O
No other shotgun rider, beside me, singin’ to the radio, Woohoo Oh O

Slide, slide over nice and close
Lay your head down on my shoulder
You can fall asleep I’ll let you
Dream, life ain't nothing but a dream, don’t wanna be
Cruisin’ through this dream without you

I don’t ever want to wake up,
Lookin’ into someone else’s eyes
Another Voice calling me baby
On the other end of the phone
A new girl puttin’ on her makeup
Before dinner on Friday night
No I don’t ever wanna know, Oh O
No other shotgun rider, beside me, singin’ to the radio, Woohoo Oh O
No other shotgun rider, Oh O

No other shotgun rider, Oh O

Singin’ to the radio, Oh O

You’re my shotgun rider.
