We’re not in love anymore :: Under the Covers

I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near) (live) :: Laura Jane Grace

“Hey, I know that it’s hard for you,
to say the things we both know are true.
But tell me how come I keep forgettin’,
we’re not in love anymore?”

Why do I let myself worry?

Crazy (live) :: The Kills

“Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you.
I’m crazy for trying,
and crazy for crying,
and I’m crazy for loving you.”

Sing with me

Dream On :: Kelly Sweet

“Half my life is books,
written pages,
live and learn from fools and from sages.
You know it’s true,
oh ll these feelings,
come back to you.”

One day, maybe next week

One Way or Another :: Until The Ribbon Breaks

“And if the lights are all out,
I’ll follow your bus downtown,
see who’s hanging out.”
