1. Such Great Heights (The Postal Service)
And I have to speculate that God himself did make us into corresponding shapes like puzzle pieces from the clay. And true, it may seem like a stretch, but it’s thoughts like this that catch my troubled head when you’re away, when I am missing you today.
2. To Whom It May Concern (The Civil Wars)
Slowly counting down the days till I finally know your name, the way your hand feels ’round my waist, the way you laugh, the way your kisses taste. I’ve missed you but I haven’t met you, oh how I want to, how I do.
3. Right Next to You (Elizabeth & the Catapult)
I never thought we’d come this far. Love will guide us out. I never thought I’d lose my heart so completely. One thing I know for sure is when the lights go out, I’m gonna be right next to you.
4. Plug In Baby (Muse)
My plug in baby, in unbroken virgin realities, is tired of living. Don’t confuse, baby you’re gonna lose your own game, change me, replace the envying to forget your love.
5. The Devil’s Tears (Angus & Julia Stone)
Some call love a curse, some call love a thief. She’s my home, and she’s as much a part of this broken heart, but see, broken bones always seem to mend. I’ll taste the devil’s tears, drink from his soul, but I’ll never give up you.
6. Wind in the Wires (Patrick Wolf)
See her waters break, rain falling to the sea into a granite wave. A unit, a family, it’s just a sigh, just a sigh. This wild electricity, made static by industry, like a bird in an aviary, singing to the sky, just singing to be free.
7. Bridge to Nowhere (The Like)
Flashbacks of times past, I would forget just to make it last. Turning on the lights, I’m waiting, nothing seems to be changing. Books are on the desk, blank papers, every sign of life just seems to taper.
8. The Special Two (Missy Higgins)
And we will only need each other, we’ll bleed together, our hands will not be taught to hold another’s, ’cause we’re the special two. And we could only see each other, we’ll breathe together, these arms will not be taught to need another’s, ’cause we’re the special two.
9. Do I Disappoint You (Rufus Wainwright)
Do I disappoint you, in being human and not one of the elements that you can light your cigar on? Why does it always have to be fire? Why does it always have to be brimstone? Desire: cool this body down.
10. Recommendation (Mirah)
There’s regret that you feel about the choice you’ve made, you’ll just have to deal before it goes away. You ask me how I feel, and here’s what I’ll say: I’m doing fine, just fine, I’m doing fine.
11. Time and Time Again (Counting Crows)
So when are you coming home, sweet angel? You’re leaving me alone, all alone. Well, well, if I’m drowning, darling, you’ll come down this way on your own.
12. Not Again (The Spring Standards)
I think the devil knows his way around this place. He leaves a trail of red temptation and he hides us in his fog so thick with shame. You set my knee on fire, cloth upon nylon, you set fire to me knee so easily, so unaccidentally, make me now, don’t make me, please, don’t make me lose him all over again. No, I can’t say no, I just can’t, I dare you to try it, betrayals are quiet nowadays.
13. Doors Unlocked and Open (Death Cab for Cutie)
Somewhere down, down, down in the ocean of sound, sound, we’ll live in slow motion and be free with doors unlocked and open, doors unlocked and open. Isolation, isolation, California, gilded crowns, idle workers, counting down.
