idontwannabeyouanymore – Billie Eilish

Don’t be that way / Fall apart twice a day / I just wish you could feel what you say / Show, never tell / But I know you too well / Got a mood that you wish you could sell


Secrets – One Republic

I need another story / Something to get off my chest / My life gets kinda boring / Need something that I can confess / Til’ all my sleeves are stained red / From all the truth that I’ve said


I Lived – One Republic

Hope when you take that jump / You don’t fear the fall / Hope when the water rises / You built a wall / Hope when the crowd screams out / They’re screaming your name / Hope if everybody runs / You choose to stay


Never Say Never – The Fray

You can never say never while we don’t know it / Time, time and time again / Younger now than we were before / Don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go / Don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go


Iris – The Goo Goo Dolls

And I don’t want the world to see me / ‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand / When everything’s meant to be broken / I just want you to know who I am


The Story – Brandi Carlile

All of these lines across my face / Tell you the story of who I am / So many stories of where I’ve been / And how I got to where I am / But these stories don’t mean anything / When you’ve got no one to tell them to / It’s true, I was made for you


Little Girl – Faith Marie

They always say the same thing and it’s starting to get old / That my mind can’t get sick, that it can’t catch a cold / I scratch and I pick, my insecurities poke, / My fears, my anxiety, a voice that provokes / Take a walk, clear your head, breath in, count to ten / Cause on the first page of life written in red / You’ll never make it here if you don’t learn how to bend


Somewhere Only We Know – Lily Allen

And if you have a minute, why don’t we go / Talk about it somewhere only we know? / This could be the end of everything / So why don’t we go somewhere only we know? / Somewhere only we know


Start Of Time – Gabrielle Aplin

I’m an atom in a sea of nothing / Looking for another to combine / Maybe we could be the start of something / Be together at the start of time


It’s OK – Frida Sundemo

Oh, it’s OK / This is what it feels like / And it’s OK / To tear down what’s been a wall / It’s been a wait / Now this is how life strikes / And this is what it feels like / To be alive


Leave A Light On – Tom Walker

And I know you don’t know oh, but I need you to be brave / Hiding from the truth ain’t gonna make this all okay / I’ll see your pain if you don’t feel our grace / And you’ve lost your way / I will leave the light on


Can’t Fight The Moonlight – LeAnn Rimes

There’s no escape from love / Once a gentle breeze / Weaves its spell upon your heart / No matter what you think / It won’t be too long / Til your in my arms


This Kiss – Faith Hill

Cinderella said to Snow White / How does love get so off course / All I wanted was a white knight / With a good heart, soft touch, fast horse / Ride me off into the sunset / Baby, I’m forever yours


Find Me – Sigma & Birdy

If you’re ready, heart is open / I’ll be waiting / Come find me / If you’re searching for forever / I’ll be waiting / Come find me


Fight Song – Rachel Platten

Like a small boat / On the ocean / Sending big waves / Into motion / Like how a single word / Can make a heart open / I might only have one match / But I can make an explosion / This is my fight song / Take back my life song / Prove I’m alright song / My power’s turned on / Starting right now I’ll be strong (I’ll be strong) / I’ll play my fight song / And I don’t really care if nobody else believes / ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me


Wings – Birdy

Oh lights go down / In the moment we’re lost and found / I just wanna be by your side / If these wings could fly / Oh damn these walls / In the moment we’re ten feet tall / And how you told me after it all / We’d remember tonight / For the rest of our lives


Worlds Collide – The Mostar Diving Club

With a blanket made of stars / To wrap the both of us / As we fell into the light / Our worlds collide / Yes that’s the way that our worlds collide / Here I am and here I stand / Our worlds collide / And I would wait for you / And I’d wait forever too / You’re in, you’re in my heart / It’s true.


7 Years – Lukas Graham

I always had that dream like my daddy before me / So I started writing songs, I started writing stories / Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me / ‘Cause only those I really love will ever really know me


When We Were Young – Adele

Let me photograph you in this light / In case it is the last time / That we might be exactly like we were / Before we realized / We were sad of getting old / It made us restless / Oh, I’m so mad I’m getting old / It makes me reckless / It was just like a movie / It was just like a song / When we were young


Our Story – MAKO

This is our story / That we could take back some day / Our lonely glory / That we could get back, they say / This is our story / That we could take back some day / Our hope if only / We could take back some day
