But I no longer hear the music

Song: The Libertines- Music When the Lights Go Out
Album: The Libertines (2004)
Label: Rough Trade Records

is it cruel to be kind not to speak my mind and to lie to you rather than hurt you
well ill confess all of my sins after several large gins but still ill hide from you, hide whats
inside from you
and alarm bells ring.when you say your heart still sings.when your with me, oh darling please
forgive me
but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no
and all the memories of the pubs and the clubs, and the drugs and the tubs we shared together
will stay with me forever..
but all the highs and the lows and the to's and the fro's they left me dizzy oh wont you please
forgive me

but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no

well i no longer hear the music when the lights go out love goes cold in the shades of doubt the
strange fate in my mind its all too clear, music when the lights come on the girl i thought i
knew has gone, and with her my heart it dissapeard

well i no longer hear the music oh no no no no and all the memories of the fights and the nights
and the blue lights and the kites we flew together i thought theyd fly forever

but all the highs and the lows and the to's and the fro's they left me dizzy oh wont you please
forgive me

but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no

well i no longer hear the music when the lights go out love goes cold in the shades of doubt the
strange fate in my mind its all too clear

i no longer hear the music when the lights go out the girl i thought i knew has gone and with
her my heart has disapeard
but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no and i no longer hear the music

But you think that it's just me teasing you

Song: The White Stripes - Blue Orchid
Album: Get Behind Me Satan (2005)
Label: XL Recordings

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Something better than nothing
Something better than nothing, it's giving up
We all need to do something
Try to keep the truth from showing up

How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?
How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?

You're given a flower
But I guess there's just no pleasing you
Your lip tastes sour
But you think that it's just me teasing you

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway
Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

And it’s cold now

Song: The Raveonettes - The Christmas Song
Album: Whip It On sessions (2001)
Label: Sony Records

All the lights are comin’ on now
How I wish that it would snow now
I don’t feel like going home now
I wish that I could stay

All the trees are on display now
And it’s cold now
I don’t feel like going home now
I wish that I could stay

I wish that I could walk...
I wish that I could walk you home

All the lights are comin’ on now
How I wish that it would snow now
I don’t feel like going home now
I wish that I could stay

Santas coming to town
with sequins in his hair
Santas coming to town
with sequins in his hair

Come with me and I will show what not to be, where not to go

Song: Echo and the Bunnymen - Hide & Seek
Album: Flowers (2001)
Label: Cooking Vinyl

Hide and seek, cloak and find
All the colours in your mind
Tied together, Sunday's clown
Traced and feathered, laced and bound

It's you now... yeah
Everybody's looking for you now... yeah

I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my feet back off the ground

Come with me and I will show
What not to be, where not to go
Chase the shadows, through black holes
Find the darkness, in your soul

It's me now... yeah
Everybody says it was me now...yeah
Everybody's looking for me now

I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my feet back off the ground
I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my head back in the clouds

Hide and seek, cloak and find
All the colours in your mind
Tied together, Sunday's clown
Traced and feathered, laced and bound

I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my feet back off the ground
I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my head back in the clouds

Is anybody home?

Song: The Stone Roses - Made of stone
Album: The Stone Roses (1989)
Label: Silvertone Records

Your knuckles whiten on the wheel
The last thing that your hands will feel
Your final flight can't be delayed

Nowhere, just sky it's so serene
Your pink fat lips let go a scream
You fry and melt I love the scene

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Is anybody home?

I'm standing warm against the cold
Now that the flames have taken hold
At least you left your life in style

And for as far as I can see
Ten twisted grills grin back at me
Bad money dies I love the scene

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Is anybody home?

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Are you made of stone?

In my mind I'm leaving this town

Song: French Films - Take You With Me
Album: Golden Sea EP (2010)
Label: GAEA Records

Even though I can't get out
In my mind I'm leaving this town
And I can't stay no more
Am I ever gonna be sane again

Everybody says they've seen it all
Everybody knows everything
But all the time won't change you in my eyes
All the drugs don't do anything, no

And I can't take you with me
Oh I can't take you with me, no
And I can't take you with me
How I wish I could take you with me now

Oh you see I can't get out
But in my mind I'm leaving this town
I can't stay no more
Am I ever gonna be sane again

Like a kid I'm lying and waiting
Like a kid I'm lying and waiting
For the summer time to get around
And it's been pretty serious

And I can't take you with me
Oh I can't take you with me, no
And I can't take you with me
How I wish I could take you with me now

Follow me, won't you hold my hand?

Song: Iwan Rheon - Follow me
Album: Tongue Tied EP (2010)
Label: AWAL (Artists Without A Label) Distribution

Set off tomorrow well I wish you well
With your handful of wild flowers on the road to hell

Follow me I say hold my hand
Follow me to this righteous land
Set off tomorrow on the road to hell
With a picture in your pocket of the wishing well

Follow me, you say hold my hand
Follow me to righteous land
Where all your fears are in your eyes
All your foes are on your side

Well I set off this morning with you thank you sweet
For the slither of alcohol to ground my fear

Follow me now I understand
Follow me won't you hold my hand

Cause threes no point writing fables of how we should be
When the clouds gave condensation and you hand to me

Follow me now I understand
Follow my sweet part is out
When all your fears are in your eyes
All your foes are on your side

We slipped into the sun on a summer’s day
Left the cake house to feel I’m dreaming away
You know this morning taste so sweet
Cause the ground beneath my feet and the air I breathe
Well maybe that’s something we’ll never believe
When all your fears are in your eyes
All your foes are on your side

I am you and you are me

Song: Depeche Mode - I Am You
Album: Exciter (2001)
Label: Mute Records

You have bound my heart with subtle chains
So much pleasure that it feels like pain
So entwined now that we can't shake free
I am you and you are me

No escaping from the mess we're in
So much pleasure that it must be sin
I must live with this reality
I am yours eternally

There's no turning back
We're in this trap
No denying the facts
No, no, no
No excuses to give
I'm the one you're with
We've no alternative
No, no, no

Dark obsession in the name of love
This addiction that we're both part of
Leads us deeper into mystery
Keeps us craving endlessly

Strange compulsions that I can't control
Pure possession of my heart and soul
I must live with this reality

I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me

There's no turning back
We're in this trap
No denying the facts
No, no, no
No excuses to give
I'm the one you're with
We've no alternative
No, no, no

Now I can talk, no one gets off

Song: Two Door Cinema Club - I Can Talk
Album: Tourist History (2010)
Label: Kitsuné Music

You won't believe what I tell you,
White coats and clever minds will choose
You get a lot from this
Loose tongue and arrogance
It's not appropriate
Don't think that this is it

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

A longer sentence brings no more
Than one that I had said before
It's hard to compromise
When I see through your eyes
It's just a common view
I guess it's lost on you

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

Sister what did they do to you?

Song: The Black Keys - Sister
Album: El Camino (2011)
Label: Nonesuch Records

wake up
gonna wake up to nothing
break up
the break up is coming
when you’re heart is hollow
another pill to swallow

shake up
got to shake up you’re freezing
make up
i’m gonna make up my reasons

i used to say i need you
but i gotta leave you

[chorus]
sister, sister what did they do to you
sister, sister what did they do to you
did they take and try to break
a heart that long
it’s so wrong

hung up
got me hung up in draft
rung up
got me rung up in bed

you took that handy job
the one who showed you love

[chorus]
sister, sister what did they do to you
sister, sister what did they do to you
did they take and try to break
a heart that long
it’s so wrong
so wrong
so long
