Part I

(doing all i can do just to be close to you)
Part II

(the distance from here to where you'd be)


Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life, a good, good life
To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don't know
Where I've been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Colorado
These miles have torn us worlds apart
And I miss you, yeah, I miss you
So far away from where you are
And standing underneath the stars
And I wish you were here

A Fine Frenzy

The pieces of gold, they light up your eyes
And now we're alone and now we're alive
Watching the sky, you're watching a painting
Coming to life shifting and shaping
Staying inside, it all goes, all goes, all goes, all goes by

I'm miles from where you are
I lay down on the cold ground
I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms
After I have travelled so far
We'd set the fire to the third bar
We'd share each other like an island
Snow Patrol feat. Martha Wainwright

My Favorite Highway

You never had, you never had a fighting chance, so watch your back
Somehow we always manage to remember that
Under attack, if you lose a friend, you pick up the slack
Whoever said that distance brings you closer, they must not have known
That when you're out of sight you're out of mind and all alone
And when you're on your own, you hate to think that you should've known

Got this feeling, I should deal with this
But I'm hiding, no one knows
They don't
What if I don't want to be the lonely one?
The truth I know is this
I don't want to miss you more
Than I already do
Moses Mayfield

The Temper Trap

So stay there
Because I'll be coming over
And while our blood's still young
It's so young
It runs
And we won't stop until it's over
Won't stop to surrender

All these things remind me of you
I rise away, don't feel no pain
'Cause you're with me now
In time it seems a slower song
It's a perfect sound
Sleep right through the day and we fade away
You flow right through my veins
Like a morning rain
Ryan Cabrera


Tear me down they can't take you out of my thoughts
Under every scar there’s a battle I’ve lost
Will they stop when they see us again?
I can’t stop now I know who I am
Now I’m all yours, I’m not afraid
And you're all mine, say what they may

I will grow my own trees
While you follow the moon
I feel you in my knees
Say you'll come in soon
But then one day, you'll go away, but I will, too
But until then, my darling friend, well, I will hold
Yes, I will hold, yes, I will hold,
Yes, I will hold on to you
Ingrid Michaelson

Cherry Poppin' Daddies

In the summer we saved each other's lives
By hanging out together
I've been high, but mostly low
A lifelong lodger on a dead end road
But I like mine to shine like gold
The darkest hour turns brighter than a rose

I'm running out of ways to make you see
I want you to stay here beside me
I won't be okay and I won't pretend I am
So just tell me today and take my hand
Please take my hand
Snow Patrol

Ellie Goulding

Waste days in foreign places
Shed lights on your better side
Reassure me that you'll wait for me
Wait for me as long as it takes
And I'll hold my breath, I'll hold my breath

This is where I build my home
I need someone to hold
I need someone to hold
On my own
My home
This will always be my home
This will always be my home
Ellie Goulding

Scouting For Girls

Every time that we meet I skip a heartbeat
Give me an evening, or give me a night
I'll show you the time of your life
I'll walk you home safe from the dark
I'll give you my jacket, I'll give you my heart

Because you're moving out of sight
Down a side street in your life
But oh, I know where you belong
And oh, I feel it now you're gone
Oh, I know that I was wrong
I feel it when you're gone, when the closing lights come on
The Devlins


Hide out 'till tomorrow
I crawl into your shadow
I don't mind, I don't mind
This wasted, shaded daylight
In the way your hand hits the wave
In between the dreamer and the breath
Long beside the bitter of the skin
Today won't know when to begin

I'll meet you half-way
If you're coming the long way
Don't care what the people say
Of the prodigal runaway
Cause hey hey, they don't know you like I do
I'd wait, for the whole world to show you
Maybe we're not, not that gone
Mat Kearney

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

The cinders, the cinders
They light the path
And these strange steps
Take us back, take us back
Flow sweetly, hang heavy
You suddenly complete me
You suddenly complete me

Seems like I've been standing here forever
I'm gettin' tired of hesitating, so if you're out there somewhere, waiting
I'm shooting up a flare across the sky, lighting up the night
The signal's out, I'm ready now, come find me
Like a diamond shining in the sand
Hold me in your hands, I'm calling out
I'm ready now, come find me, come find me
