[Tapes Received] – Way Down We Go by KALEO

Oh, Father tell me, do we get what we deserve? / Whoa, we get what we deserve / And way down we go / Way down we go / Say way down we go / Way down we go

 

 

 

[Date With Justin] – White Horse by Taylor Swift

That I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairy tale / I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet, / Lead her up the stairwell / This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town, / I was a dreamer before you went and let me down

 

 

 

[Alex’s List] – High School Never Ends by Bowling For Soup

The whole damned world is just as obsessed / With who’s the best dressed and who’s having sex / Who’s got the money, who gets the honeys / Who’s kinda cute and who’s just a mess / And you still don’t have the right look / And you don’t have the right friends / Nothing changes but the faces, the names and the trends / High school never ends

 

 

 

[Jessica & The Rumours] – Rumour Has It by Adele

All of these words whispered in my ear / Tell a story that I cannot bear to hear / Just ’cause I said it, it don’t mean that I meant it / People say crazy things / Just ’cause I said it, don’t mean that I meant it / Just ’cause you heard it / Rumor has it, ooh / Rumor has it, ooh

 

 

 

[Tyler, The Stalker] – Creep by Kina Grannis

When you were here before / Couldn’t look you in the eye / Just like an angel / Your skin makes me cry / You float like a feather / In a beautiful world / I wish I was special / You’re so very special / But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo / What the hell am I doing here? / I don’t belong here

 

 

 

[Courtney’s Lie] – Bad Liar (Stripped Version) by Imagine Dragons

So look me in the eyes, tell me what you see / Perfect paradise, tearin’ at the seams / I wish I could escape it, I don’t wanna fake it / Wish I could erase it, make your heart believe

 

 

 

[Marcus, My Dollar Valentine] – Bloody Valentine by Machine Gun Kelly

I don’t do fake love, but I’ll take some from you tonight / I know I’ve got to go but I might just miss the flight / I can’t stay forever, let’s play pretend / And treat this night like it’ll happen again / You’ll be my bloody valentine tonight

 

 

 

[Zach’s Thievery] – Sinners by Lauren Aquilina

Our lives are stories, waiting to be told / In search of silver linings, we discovered gold / And judgment taught us that our hearts were wrong / But they’re the ones that we’ll look down upon / The rules say our emotions don’t comply / But we’ll defy the rules until we die / So let’s be sinners to be saints / And let’s be winners by mistake

 

 

 

[Ryan, The True Poet] – Stolen by Talia Mar

I thought they were my songs, my words / It’s your voice / I wrote the story you wrote cheques so you think that i’m your toy / They used to be my songs / My words, my voice / But you were in the room / So you told them it was our noise / And I’m Stolen / My pride and my ego are broken / Does that mean you win? / I lost hoping, left my heart too wide open / I let those thieves in / I was so nearly stolen

 

 

 

[Clay & Tony’s Talk] – Hold Me While You Wait by Lewis Capaldi

Tell me more, tell me something I don’t know / Could we come close to havin’ it all? / If you’re gonna waste my time / Let’s waste it right / And hold me while you wait / I wish that I was good enough (hold me while you wait) / If only I could wake you up (hold me while you wait) / My love, my love, my love, my love

 

 

 

[Clay’s Kiss] – It’s OK by 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 / To be alive / To be alive / Yeah, this is what it feels like / This is how life strikes / This is what it feels like

 

 

 

[Bryce Rapes Jessica] – R.I.P 2 My Youth by The Neighbourhood

Put me in the dirt, let me dream with the stars / Throw me in a box with the oxygen off / You gave me the key then you locked every lock / When I can’t breathe, I won’t ask you to stop / When I can’t breathe, don’t call for a cop / I was naive and hopeful and lost / Now I’m aware and trapped in my thoughts / What do I do? What do I do? / I don’t believe it if I don’t keep proof / I don’t believe it if I don’t know you / I don’t believe it if it’s on the news or on the Internet

 

 

 

[Jenny & The Accident] – This Woman’s Work by Greg Laswell

Pray God / You can cope / I stand outside this woman’s work / This woman’s world / Ooh / It’s hard on the man / Now his part is over / Now starts the craft of the father / I know you have a little life in you yet / I know you have a lot of strength left / I know you have a little life in you yet / I know you have a lot of strength left

 

 

 

[Bryce Rapes Hannah] – Gallows by Katie Garfield

Fire is burning / Casting a shadow / People are watching / Waiting for the fall / Whispers are creeping / Under the gallows / People are talking / We could lose it all / Tell them something is coming / There’s blood in the water / Give them a warning / Let it all come crashing down / Burn the castle to the ground / Hang the lies, no disguise / It’s our time / Let it all come / Down down, down

 

 

 

[Mr. Porter & The Final Chance] – Til It Happens To You by Lady GaGa

You tell me hold your head up / Hold your head up and be strong / ‘Cause when you fall, you gotta get up / You gotta get up and move on / Tell me, how the hell could you talk / How could you talk? / ‘Cause until you walk where I walk / It’s just all talk / ‘Til it happens to you, you don’t know / How it feels

 

 

 

[Tapes Sent & Skye] Bird Set Free by Sia

But there’s a scream inside that we all try to hide / We hold on so tight, we cannot deny / Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive, oh / Yes, there’s a scream inside that we all try to hide / We hold on so tight, but I don’t wanna die, no / I don’t wanna die, I don’t wanna die, yeah / And I don’t care if I sing off key / I find myself in my melodies / I sing for love, I sing for me / I shout it out like a bird set free
