Leave (live) :: Glen Hansard
originally from the soundtrack album to Once (2007)

“Let go of my hand,
you said you came to,
now leave.”

It always happens, the unexpected mention of your name, and the flood begins. I keep thinking I’m done feeling, feeling you, feeling sadness, feeling loss, feeling love, feeling anything at all for you. But as the song sings, truth has a habit of falling out of your mouth, or in this case, out of my everything. Maybe it will never leave, these feelings, this sense of loss, the pain that shoots through me like an poison arrow, or a close-range bullet, at the mere mention of your name.

Burn :: The Cure
from the album, The Crow: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1994)

“So slide back down and close your eyes,
sleep a while,
you must be tired.”

My first car was this piece of crap red Honda, two doors, hatchback, manual transmission, bad radiator, temperamental tail lights, on its last legs, automotive love of my life. That last part, yeah, I meant it. She was that one car that I will never forget, and the one I truly loved. She represented freedom to me, and adventure. She held my secrets, she carried me and my dearest friends all over Southern California. She was there for me when I was at my happiest, and at my lowest moments.

Paper Bag :: Fiona Apple
from the album, When the Pawn… (1999)

“I said, ‘Honey, I don’t feel so good,
don’t feel justified
come on put a little love here in my void,’
he said ‘It’s all in your head,’
and I said, ‘So’s everything’
but he didn’t get it.”
