Put your music on shuffle and list the first ten songs and your favourite lyrics from each one
1. The Rocket Summer- Treasures
So I’ll fall asleep and try not to think twice about all the things that forever will kick me down the steps for being too nice.
2. Blink 182- Going Away To College
Bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody. This world’s an ugly place, but you’re so beautiful to me.
3. Say Anything- Signal the Riflemen
Let’s make love on top of broken blackboards, I’ll slide the colored chalk around your every curve.
4. The Front Bottoms- Tattooed Tears
Let’s talk about how it felt on my shoulders as it came pouring out my ears. Let’s talk about the face of our love and how it might look with the addition of tattooed tears.
5. The Format- If Work Permits
I’m here to tell you loves not some fucking blood on the receiver. Love is speaking in code, it’s an inside joke. Love is coming home.
6. Motion City Soundtrack- Last Night
My body aches, it heaves, it shakes. All somersaults through so-called art and I still don’t know exactly who I am. I never will, amen.
7. Brendon Urie ft. Nate Ruess- C’mon
Try not to mistake what you have with what you hate, it could leave, it could leave come the morning. Celebrate the night, it’s the fall that will define. Shall we sing ‘til the morning? If I fall forward, you fall flat. If the sun should lift me up, would you come back?
8. Go Radio- What If You Don’t
There was a time I had a symphony and it played love to me for days. Then all at once I heard the strings, out of tune and out of key.
9. Anberlin- Dismantle. Repair.
Hands, like secrets, are the hardest thing to keep from you.Lines and phrases, like knives, your words can cut me through. Dismantle me down, repair. You dismantle me, you dismantle me.
10. Bayside- Sinking and Swimming on Long Island
My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside, but it’s high tide and they get washed away with time.
Wow. This turned out so much better than I could’ve imagined. Thank you iPhone for shuffling my music pretty perfectly. The only skips I made were repeat bands because what fun is that?
And you dropped the note and we changed key
You changed yourself and I changed me
I really didn’t see us singing through this
Then you screamed the bridge
And I cried the verse
And our chorus came out unrehearsed
And you smiled the whole way through it
I guess maybe that’s what’s worse
