The Fine Art Of Falling Apart ~ Matthew Good

I walk alone and I
I ride alone and I
I rock myself to sleep
Baby, there ain’t enough room in this world
For people like you
And horrors like me

A time of darkness
There lived a girl in a cave in the woods
Disguised as a bee
At night she would fly into the city
Sting the cars
And sting the cost
And she would hover over me
Whispering
And we’re surfacing
We’re Surfacing

I stand alone and I
I fight alone and I
Stay clean by feeling cheap
And baby, there ain’t enough room in this world
For perfections like you
And monsters like me

A time of darkness
You will look absurd and you will feel it hurt
And you will go looking to blame somebody
You see I used to think that I’d get over everything
But everything just got
Over me

I’m certain of it
I’m certain of it
I’m certain of it
I’m certain of it

I walk alone and I
I ride alone and you know
That’s all right by me
See baby cause
here ain’t enough room in this world
For a great, great many things

Last Parade ~ Matthew Good

It feels like time to let it go
It feels like time to break or show
It feels like time to cut your breaks
Shut your mouth, do something, anything

It feels like time to fuck or leave
It feels like I choke you just to breathe
It feels like time ain’t time at all
Just black out, wake up foreign, wander home

Take me out, lay me down
Let the dirt fall all around me
Baby ain’t it good to be back home?
They’re burning futures in the mountains
All lit up, ya you can count yours
Baby ain’t it good to be back home?

It feels like just another day
Like one more dead town’s last parade
Like we’re taking pictures of a tidal wave
On the shore grinning a hundred feet away
It feels like time ain’t time at all
Just black out, wake up foreign, wander home

Take me out, lay me down
Let the dirt fall all around me
Baby ain’t it good to be back home?
They’re burning futures in the mountains
All lit up, ya you can count yours
Baby ain’t it good to be back home?
Ain’t it good to be back home?

Mercy ~ Shawn Mendes

You’ve got a hold on me
Don’t even know your power
I stand a hundred feet
But I fall when I’m around ya
Show me an open door
And you go and slam it on me
I can’t take anymore

I’m saying…
Baby, please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

I’d drive through the night
Just to be near you, baby
Heart open, testify
Tell me that I’m not crazy
I’m not asking for a lot
Just that you’re honest with me
And my pride, is all I got

I’m saying…
Baby, please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy on me
I’m a puppet on your strings
And even though you got good intentions
I need you to set me free
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart
Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Consuming all the air inside my lungs
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I’m prepared to sacrifice my life
I would gladly do it twice
Consuming all the air inside my lungs
Ripping all the skin from off my bones
I’m prepared to sacrifice my life
I would gladly do it twice

Oh, please have mercy on me
Take it easy on my heart
Even though you don’t mean to hurt me
You keep tearing me apart
Would you please have mercy on me
I’m a puppet on your string
And even though you got good intentions
I need you to set me free
I’m begging you for mercy, mercy
I’m begging you, begging you, please, baby
I’m begging you for mercy, mercy
Ooh, I’m begging you, I’m begging you

Where I Stood ~ Missy Higgins

I don’t know what I’ve done
Or if I like what I’ve begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it’s all or none

There were sounds in my head
Little voices whispering
That I should go and this should end
Oh and I found myself listening

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

See I thought love was black and white
That it was wrong or it was right
But you ain’t leaving without a fight
And I think I am just as torn inside

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

And I won’t be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself and so I say to you
This is what I have to do

‘Cos I don’t know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don’t know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
‘Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood
Oh, she who dares to stand where I stood

Going all the Way ~ Matthew Good Band

Well this is it
so where it’s at monomaniacs
baby you know all we’re good for
drugs for the kids! if the kids are flat
[all dressed up to match]
those shit eating grins look effortless
and if there’s nothing left to die for
and all this “our beauty!” is just decay
and if there’s nothing left to die for
then you and me, let’s go out going all the way

well this is it
so where it’s at megalomaniacs
baby you know it’s all we’re good for
those missile men with their master plan
don’t get paid to understand
makes you wonder (?) where we got these shit eating grins from

and if there’s nothing left to die for
and all this our beauty is just decay
and if there’s nothing left to die for
then you and me
let’s go out going all the way!

dreams of the sea caught way inland
cut as losses we’ll cut our losses
we’ll cut our loss

Who Do You Love ~ Marianas Trench

Well I’ve been deep in this sleeplessness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get away from myself
When I get back on feet, I’ll blow this open wide
And carry me home in good health

God, it’s been so long wide awake that I feel
Like someone else
I miss the way that you saw me
Or maybe that way I saw myself
But I came back to you broken
And I’ve been away too long
I hear the words I’ve spoken
And everything comes out wrong
I just can’t get this together
Can’t get where I belong

(Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love?

Well I’ve been deep in this sleeplessness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get away from myself
When I get back on feet, I’ll blow this open wide
And carry me home in good health

Screaming
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love? Who do you love?
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love?

From fable to fumble
From stable to stumble
Never more
I’ll say goodbye to my demons
And all my break-evens
Ever yours
I, I won’t come back to you broken
I won’t stay away too long
Even if words I’ve spoken
Seem to still come out wrong
I’ll get my shit back together
And get right where I belong

(Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love?

Well I’ve been deep in this sleeplessness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get away from myself
When I get back on feet, I’ll blow this open wide
And carry me home in good health

Screaming
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love? Who do you love?
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love? Who do you love?

Everything goes quiet
It’s like I just can’t move
You say I might as well try it
There’s nothing left to lose
Nothing will change if you never choose

Well I’ve been deep in this sleeplessness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get away from myself
When I get back on feet, I’ll blow this open wide
And carry me home in good health

Well I’ve been deep in this sleeplessness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get away from myself
When I get back on feet, I’ll blow this open wide
And carry me home in good health

Screaming
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love? Who do you love?
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love? Who do you love?
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love? Who do you love?
(Who do you love? Who do you love?)
Who do you love? Who do you love?

Who do you love?

Shattered (Turn the Car Around) ~ O.A.R.

In a way, I need a change
From this burnout scene
Another time, another town
Another everything
But it’s always back to you

Stumble out, in the night
From the pouring rain
Made the block, sat and thought
There’s more I need
It’s always back to you

But I’m good without ya
Yeah, I’m good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I’m shattered
I always turn the car around

I had no idea that the night
Would take so damn long
Took it out, on the street
While the rain still falls
Push me back to you

But I’m good without ya
Yeah, I’m good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I’m shattered
I always turn the car around

Give it up, give it up, baby
Give it up, give it up, now
Now

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around
All that I feel is the realness I’m faking
Taking my time but it’s time that I’m wasting
Always turn the car around

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can’t define what I’m after
I always turn the car around

Don’t wanna turn that car around
I gotta turn this thing around

Set the Fire to the Third Bar ~ Snow Patrol

Find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
The distance from A to where you’d B
It’s only finger lengths that I see

I touch the place
Where I’d find your face
My fingers in creases
Of distant dark places

I hang my coat up in the first bar
There is no peace that I’ve found so far
The laughter penetrates my silence
As drunken men find flaws in science

Their words mostly noises
Ghosts with just voices
Your words in my memory
Are like music to me

And miles from where you are
I lay down on the cold ground and I
I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm heart

After I’ve traveled so far
We’d set the fire to the third bar
We’d share each other like an island
Until exhausted close our eyelids

And dreaming pick up from
The last place we left off
Your soft skin is weeping
A joy you can’t keep in

And miles from where you are
I lay down on the cold ground and I
I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

And miles from where you are
I lay down on the cold ground and I
I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

Odette ~ Matthew Good

Hey midnight
Turn on your lights
Roll out your stars
Roll out your stars

I look tired
But I feel wired
And my body hums
Like it’s coming undone

Don’t you lie to me
Nothing’s already what it seems
And even you can spot the fool

Odette
Make me forget what I’ve done
What I’ve become

Don’t want to be so wide awake
Don’t want to be so wide awake
I see just how you take
Don’t want to be so wide awake

Hey midnight
Turn on your lights
Roll out your stars
Roll out your stars

Apologize ~ OneRepublic

I’m holding on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground
And I’m hearing what you say, but I just can’t make a sound
You tell me that you need me, then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you’re sorry, didn’t think I’d turn around,
and say (that)

“It’s too late to apologize (it’s too late)”
I said, “it’s too late to apologize (it’s too late)”

I’d take another chance, take a fall, take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat, but it’s nothing new (yeah)
I loved you with a fire red, now it’s turning blue, and you say
“Sorry” like the angel heaven let me think was you, but I’m afraid…

“It’s too late to apologize (it’s too late)”
I said, “it’s too late to apologize (it’s too late)”

“It’s too late to apologize (it’s too late)”
I said, “it’s too late to apologize” yeah (too late)
I said, “it’s too late to apologize” yeah (too late)
I said, “it’s too late to apologize” yeah (too late)

I’m holdin’ on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground
