For when you chase after your dreams and happiness with a feverish passion.
These people round here
Wear beaten down eyes sunk
In smoke dried faces
They’re so resigned to what their fate is
But not us (no not ever)
But not us (not ever)
"Come On Eileen" - Dexy’s Midnight Runners
For the times where you try to separate the emotions.
And like the sea
I’m constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I’m breaking down
"Sensible Heart" - City & Colour
Family is messy and complicated, but it’s always home.
Laugh until we think we’ll die,
Barefoot on a summer night
Never could be sweeter than with you…
Home, let me come home
Home is wherever I’m with you
"Home" - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
For the days when you can’t be much of anything.
Sorrow found me when I was young
"Sorrow" - The National
Everyone says our minds are off and our feelings are too much but we have a fight in us.
You can tell From the glass on the floor
And the strings that’re breaking
And I keep on breaking more
And it looks like I am shaking
But it’s just the temperature
And then again If it were any colder I could disengage
If I were any older I could act my age
But I don’t think that you’d believe me
"Girl Anachronism" by The Dresden Dolls
A song I sing to you because distance keeps us apart but love keeps us together.
When the evening shadows and the stars appear,
And there is no one there to dry your tears,
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.
"Make You Feel My Love" - Adele
For the days you feel like a fierce woman.
What you gone do when I appear?
When I premier?
Bitch the end of your lives are near
This shit been mine, mine
"212" - Azealia Banks
Because we are best friends like Romy and Michelle.
If you’re lost you can look - and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you - I’ll be waiting
Time after time
"Time After Time" - Cyndi Lauper
Because I love you til kingdom come and beyond.
Hold my head inside your hands,
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears,
For you, I’ve waited all these years.
"Til Kingdom Come" - Coldplay
Because you are my sunshine.
Keep on smiling
Cause when you’re smiling
The whole world smiles with you
"When You Are Smiling" - Billie Holiday
For us. The loud, commanding women.
You have a mind to keep me quiet
and although you can try,
better men have hit their knees
and bigger men have died.
"Raise Hell’ - Brandi Carlile
