Watch my back
No one will
Waterfall fire kills
And all my life
all my life
I've been waiting
to find my place 
-Augustana, Found My Place

You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what
I've been through like you do
And I was made for you
-Brandi Carlile, The Story

 Or have you lost your memory?
But now it seems your baggage
Is the only thing than you can bring
You had a lie for everything
And now your world is crumbling
So now you find you're on your own
You find you're on your own
Trying to find your way back home
-Dishwalla, Find Your Way Back Home

I would give the very breath from my chest
To give you all the things that my mind couldn't bear
And if you have to leave 
I wish that you would just leave 
'cause your presence still lingers here 
And it won't leave me alone
I love to walk away and pull myself out of the rain
But I can't leave without you
I love to live without the constant fear and endless doubt
But I can't live without you
-Evanescence, My Immortal

So read your books, but stay out late some nights
And don't think that you can't stop by the bar
You haven't shown your face here since the bad news
Well, I'm here 'til close with fingers crossed
Each night 'cause your place isn't far
And hours pass...
Hours pass
-Jack's Mannequin, Bruised

It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds
But I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never lain beside at all
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said 
That love is watching someone die 
So who's gonna watch you die?
-DeathCab For Cutie, What Sarah Said

When the tears come streaming down your face 
When you lose something you can't replace 
When you love someone but it goes to waste 
Could it be worse? 
Lights will guide you home 
And ignite your bones 
And I will try to fix you 
High up above or down below 
When you're too in love to let it go 
If you never try you'll never know 
Just what you're worth 
-Coldplay, Fix You

Trying to make it work but man these times are hard
But we're gonna start by drinking old cheap bottles of wine
Sit talking up all night
Doing things we haven't for a while, a while yeah
Smiling but we're close to tears
Even after all these years
We just now got the feeling that we're meeting
For the first time
-The Script, For The First Time

And I'm not sure what I'm looking for
But it's clear to see the purpose of my existence is laying here in front of me.
So close your eyes and sleep to dream.
I'm by your side. 
No words to speak.
We'll set our course and make it through.
No matter how far I go
No matter how much this hurts
I wanted you to know, 
My heart remains with you
-Matchbook Romance, If All Else Fails

I wanna hold you
Protect you from all of the things I've already endured
And I wanna show you
Show you all the things that this life has in 
Store for you
And I'll always love you
The way that a father should love his daughter
-Staind, Zoe Jane

'Cause I am hanging on every word you're saying
Even if you don't wanna speak tonight
That's alright, alright with me
'Cause I want nothing more than to sit outside heaven's door
And listen to you breathing
It's where I wanna be
-Lifehouse, Breathing

Baby the silver lost its shine a long time ago
And I’m stuck on the inside
Watching us grow old
Never once realized I must pay for my mistakes
Sentenced to a pavement grave
-Cassie Steele, Pavement

So leave yourself intact because I will be coming back,
And in a phrase to cut these lips, I love you.
The morning will come with the press of every kiss
And your head upon my chest..
Where I will annoy you with every waking breath
Until you decide to wake up.
-Coheed and Cambria, Wake Up

When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The waking up is the hardest part
You roll out of bed and down on your knees
And for a moment you can hardly breathe
-John Mayer, Dreaming With A Broken Heart

You left me hanging from a thread we once swung from together
I lick my wounds but I can never see them getting better
Something’s gotta change
Things cannot stay the same
-Maroon 5, Goodnight Goodnight

Promises mean everything when you're little
And the world's so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
Tell me everything is wonderful now
-Everclear, Wonderful

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools, the gifts we've got yeah we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we didn't tend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I got, and what I'm not
And who I am
I won't give up on us
-Jason Mraz, I Won't Give Up

Great moments they pass by
If you're careless
Desperately trying to speak the words
I've been wanting to say for a long time.
Tongue tied, every time I try to talk to you
In time, I'll find the right line.
I'll bleed for you
Like a new tattoo in my heart
You'll stay permanent.
-Urbandub, A New Tattoo
