DISCLAIMERS: The songs are in the order they come up on my computer, which is artist name and random order of songs/albums. Also, some of these songs I barely listen to anymore so some of these songs might not belong with others. I did link the songs; some of them are music videos and some aren’t, depending on if the song has a music video of if there’s talking in the middle of the song ‘cause videos like that bother me. Also a lot of these are love songs or only have a few lyrics that apply but shhhh.
“And I remember all those crazy things you said / You left them running through my head / You’re always there / You’re everywhere / But right now I wish you were here / All those crazy things we did / Didn’t think about it / Just went with it / You’re always there / You’re everywhere / But right now I wish you were here”
“We don’t know where to go / So I’ll just get lost with you / We’ll never fall apart / ‘Cause we fit together right / We fit together right / These dark clouds over me / Rain down and roll away / We’ll never fall apart / ‘Cause we fit together like / Two pieces of a broken heart”
“I tried on my own / I thought I’d get there / Around and round / But I was only getting nowhere / Then you came along and gave me something / Something that I could believe in, trust in / And I won’t go back again”
“Oh don’t you wonder when the light begins to fade? / And the clock just makes the colors turn to grey / Forever younger growing older just the same / All the memories that we make will never change / We’ll stay drunk / We’ll stay tan / Let the love remain / And I swear that I’ll always paint you / Golden days”
'Cause I think you’re a saint / And I think you’re an angel / I said ooh / You give me something to talk about / Something to talk about / I said ooh / You give me something to think about / That’s not the shit in my head / You’re a miracle
“It’s so hard to control the whether in my brain / But when you hold me through the storm / I feel your colors fill my veins / So believe me when I say / Your sunshine, your sunshine’s here to stay”
All at Once by Shannon Taylor (ft. James Tyler Hagen)
“I know that you think I am so insane / But I just love the way you say my name / Over and over your words keep me going / I know that I get so insecure / Honestly, I’ve never been so sure / Over and over we get a little closer”
“Scared of my own image / Scared of my own immaturity / Scared of my own ceiling / Scared I’ll die of uncertainty / Fear might be the death of me / Fear leads to anxiety / Don’t know what’s inside of me / Don’t forget about me / Don’t forget about me / Even when I doubt you / I’m no good without you”
We Don’t Believe What’s On TV by twenty øne piløts
“I used to say, ‘I wanna die before I’m old’ / But because of you I might think twice”
Glowing Eyes by twenty øne piløts
“We all are stranger creatures than when we all started out as kids”
“You are surrounding all my surroundings / Sounding down the mountain range of my left-side brain / You are surrounding all my surroundings / Twisting the kaleidoscope behind both of my eyes / And I’ll be holding on to you”
-We welcome you to our state through an airport laden with conspiracy, capitalized by a statue with fiery eyes. A statue that killed its creator and now watches as you arrive and depart.
-The miners weren’t the first to leave ghost towns dotting the mountains. We still don’t know why the Anasazi left. And why in such a hurry.
-There are coal mines that continue to burn, and others that are empty save for the creatures that crawl in through broken boarded up entrances.
-Welcome signs for the towns here mark the altitude, not the population. We don’t know how many of us there are. We only need to know how safe we are from the wrath of a rapidly rising sea.
-Our plains still feel the sting of massacre and bring their wrath in tornadoes, whipping winds to rip off the roofs of schools.
-There are bicycles in every house. No one knows how they get there. Don’t touch them or you’ll become one of them. They say the bicyclists ride to Boulder and never come back.
-We legalized weed so we could have some semblance of control over the smell of smoke in our lungs. Now we can pretend it’s the sunset that leaves us breathless, not the glow of a wildfire burning just beyond the horizon.
-Endless highways wind their way through the mountains; tunnel after tunnel, small town after small town, where the locals will watch you as you drive slowly by.
-The only way to survive the summer is to suffer the winter. There’s not enough snowpack. We must have a blizzard to get any water.
-Our schools can burn, be tossed by tornadoes, or flooded by rivers, but its the students you should be afraid of.
-On a clear day you can see the brown cloud that hovers over downtown. It’s always cold in the shadow of those buildings, and it makes you wonder what really sits over the city.
-Our Capitol building is topped with gold. We want you to look at it. Don’t look at the steps. They lie, You are not 5280 feet from sea level.
-Our mountains are filled with bones. Giant bones. Bones of long dead creatures. Bones of recently dead creatures. We build monuments to them.
-There are great swaths of dead forest in the mountains. The pines still stand, cemeteries of kindling, populated only by hundreds of beetles, their black bodies glittering like eyes.
-There are 300 days of sunshine here. Blinding sunlight. It makes your eyes hurt and you can’t remember the taste of rain. You can’t remember the taste of anything anymore.
-If you ever leave you will be lost. You will have air to breathe, but you will never find your way again. Not without the mountains. The mountains are the only direction.
A short, bloody rebellion ensued [when Duncan Targaryen spurned Lord
Lyonel Baratheon’s daughter to marry Jenny of Oldstones], ending only when Ser
Duncan of the Kingsguard defeated Lord Lyonel in single combat, and King Aegon
gave his solemn word that his youngest daughter, Rhaelle, would wed Lord
Lyonel’s heir. To seal the bargain, Princess Rhaelle was
sent to Storm’s End to serve as Lord Lyonel’s cupbearer and companion to his
In 245 AC Princess Rhaelle fulfilled her father’s promise and wed Ormund Baratheon, young Lord of Storm’s End. The following year she gave him a son, Steffon [father to Robert, Stannis and Renly Baratheon].
so last night this mom and kid came in and they wanted the feeder fish but we’re all out so they say they’ll look for a minute and basically the conversation goes like this:
kid: ok we want these two gold fish please
me: ok, how big is your tank?
kid: we don’t have one, it’s for my cousin’s third birthday. he wants a fish.
me: …ok, well, unfortunately the fish can only be in the bag for an hour tops. and for those two fish the smallest they can really go in is a thirty gallon, but forty would be better and stay cleaner longer**. (**gotta appeal to the customers laziness u kno)
kid: [tells mom what I said] ok she said we’ll buy the tank here.
me: actually it’s a really good idea to let the tank run for about a week before adding fish, that way the fish are entering an established ecosystem!
kid: [relays information to mom] no, she said she wants to get the tank today and the fish. he really wants a fish for a present.
me: I understand that, I definitely do, but maybe you guys could pick out the tank and like, a gift card for him? so that way him and his parents could come in and pick out the fish and the decorations that they like!
kid: no, we want to do it today.
me: [sighs] ok but they really can’t be in the bag for longer than an hour, okay? any longer than that and they might die.
me: [literally just walking over to grab a fish bag]
kid: my mom asked if they’ll be okay in the bag for three hours? we have to drive to north carolina, haha.
me: [record scratch] uh
the dad, literally appearing from nowhere: just give us these two fish
me: sir, you should really have the tank set up before buying them and they’ll die if you’re driving to north carolina with them in the bag.
the dad: that’s fine, just give me the fish.
me: that’s not… fine?
the dad: are you going to sell me the fish or not?
me: I -
the dad: it’s your job to sell me fish
me: ac -
the dad: I WANT TO SPEAK TO A MANAGER
me: o….kay? I’m sorry, I don’t have a phone so I can’t page him.
the dad: [muttering in spanish about me being a racist bitch as he walks up to the front and proceeds to yell at the cashier to page a manager]
me: [staring awkwardly at the mom and son] um… have you guys looked at betta fish? they don’t need big tanks like gold fish do, they’re easier to take care of, and they come in a little cup so they’d probably be okay for a three hour drive…? but it would be safer for whatever fish you guys pick to pick them up near your cousin’s house. fish get stressed out really easily.
kid: last time we bought fish for him, nobody said anything.
me: [internally screaming] I’m sorry, I’m not trying to be difficult, I just don’t want you guys to get there and have a dead fish for your cousin. do you want to see the bettas? we got some pretty ones yesterday.
kid: [shrugs] sure
me: [walks them over to the bettas] see? and look, here’s a 2.5 gallon tank, which is a decent size for them and it’s only $25! it comes with everything except the food, water conditioner and decorations.
kid: he really wants a gold fish though
the dad, again appearing from nowhere: just gives us the fish
me: [opens my mouth]
the dad: fine, fuck you, we’re leaving.
me: ……….have a good night?
and like, I wasn’t even that upset just mostly confused because like??? I never??? said no????? I was going to refuse the sale anyway but this dude just??? didn’t let me say anything??? like??? no??? it’s not okay if the fish die???? it’s not okay if the fish die before they even get into a tank????? I’m not gonna sell you fish when I say they’ll die and you don’t give a shit?????? why are you cool with your birthday present for your tiny nephew dying?????
tl;dr anyway don’t buy animals as presents because it’s pretty much always a shitty idea and it’s really unfair to both the animal and the person selling it to you because there’s an 80% chance of the animal either dying, being released, being abused or being returned.
Every night I try my best to dream Tomorrow makes it better Then I wake up to the cold reality And not a thing is changed

Slowly, slowly, I’m okay in revealing Scars you see I wear them proud in the end I decided tonight that I’m wasting Too much thought on the art of perception Could it be that easy to let it all go?

I’ve got my words, they’re gonna cut Sure took a while to say it’s enough. I’ve got my heart, it’s full of love Sure took a while to learn it’s enough
8. Locked Up by Ingrid Michaelson
Like an angry apple tree, I throw my apples if you get to close to me But if I look to my right, will I see the one I fight for? If I look to my right or if I turn to my left, will I see that I’ve kept my heart locked up? Locked up so tight
9. Stressed Out by twenty one pilots

POV: Second Person
Summary: Reader manages to cheer up her friend
You stood in the parking lot, waiting for your friend to come out from talking with the press. Your face was wet with tears and your nose wouldn’t stop running. You were leaned up against your car, Mitchell had the keys.
“We were so close,” You heard someone sigh. You looked up and saw Mitch walking towards you, somberly.
“Hun,” You said, feeling your tears start to return. He walked over to you and quickly pulled you into a hug.
“I can’t believe we lost,” He whispered into your hair as he held you tightly, arms trembling with nerves.
