1. Old Trains (Merriment)
Well I miss my old house and my old room, the soft, faint whistle of the trains at 3 a.m. and at five in morning too. How have you been? Same as always, or is there something you’re not telling me? So tell me now, what’s taken the corners of your mouth and made you smile so?
2. Lost Kitten (Metric)
Don’t say yes if you can’t say no, victim of the system, say it isn’t so. Squatted on the doorstep, swollen on the blow, leaving without you, can’t say no. Halfway starts with happiness for me, halfway house, lost kitten in the street. Hit me where it hurts, I’m coming home to lose, kitten on the catwalk, high-heeled shoes.
3. Dangerous (This Girl)
So I guess I’m ready for the rush, I don’t wanna live without it. Gonna make me blush (you’re dangerous), nothing I can do about it. Now I know why they’re calling it a crush (you’re dangerous), I don’t mind what they say, you be my big mistake and I’ll be yours to take apart waiting for you to break my heart. Bleeding in your arms, looking for trouble, certain that your love’ll break my heart.
4. Debate Exposes Doubt (Death Cab for Cutie)
Finally there is clarity and there is purpose after all, but every night ends the same as I’m collapsing once more by your side. Finally there is clarity, this tiny life is making sense. And every drop numbs the both of us, but I alone am staggering.
5. 192 Days (Eisley)
You look so fair in the loving moonlight, I’ll stand beside you, take a photograph, preserve the memory of you and me. And when it grows dark I won’t be afraid, take my little hand and dance with me instead.
6. Death Proof (Kate Nash)
Burn, burn, burn my heart baby, take a piece ’cause I don’t need all of it. Don’t have time for your cruel ways and I ain’t wondering ’bout numbered days ’cause… I don’t have time to die.
7. Falling Away With You (Muse)
All of the love we left behind, watching the flash backs intertwine. Memories I will never find so I’ll love whatever you become. And forget the reckless things we’ve done, I think our lives have just begun, I think our lives have just begun.
8. Fascination (La Roux)
It’s been seven hours long and your shadow still hangs on, you’ve been two weeks gone so tonight I followed you home. There are so many different ways of collecting all the strays, the ones that get away.
9. Sacrilege (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
Fallen for a guy, fell down from the sky, halo round his head, feathers in our bed, in our bed, in our bed. It’s sacrilege, sacrilege, sacrilege, you say, it’s sacrilege, sacrilege, sacrilege, you say.
10. So Long (Rilo Kiley)
Watch me fly away through the night sky yeah, now that all you touched has finally turned to gray and roads can’t hold us down, winds will move us around with no need to return to this gray town. Want to bet I can tell you’ve been in bed for too long, so let’s just say so long.
11. Happier (A Fine Frenzy)
It’s not the words that make it final. You’ve said such things before to rival them, but it’s how you say ‘em now that’s changed, cold but sympathetic all the same. Lie to convince me that I’ll be better off so, you go on and I’ll be happier, I’ll be happier, you go on, yeah, you go on, you’ll be gone and I’ll be happier.
12. The End (Ellie Goulding)
We’ve only ever kissed lying down, we’ve only ever touched when there’s no one else around. I can be elusive if you want me to, I’m not being intrusive, I just wish I knew the truth.
13. Jessica (Regina Spektor)
I can’t write a song for you, I’m out of melodies. I can’t write a song for you, but I am asking please, Jessica, wake up. Jessica, wake up.
–your fangirl heroine.
