This Is Letting Go


This Is Letting Go – Rise Against

Once upon a time I could take anything, anything.
Always stepped in time, regardless of the beat
I moved my feet, I carried weight
What I could not do I faked
I dug seeking treasure
Just to wake up in an early grave
So I stopped right there and said

Go on alone, ’cause I won’t follow.
This isn’t giving up, no this is letting go
Out with the old dreams I’ve borrowed
The path I carve from here on out will be my own
The path will be my own

This is the part where the needle skips
And the chorus plays like a sink that drips
A syllable repeating, like a warning we aren’t heeding
Until all of a sudden we noticed it
When the wheels brace and the tires grip
A map we’ve been misreading
A defeat we’re not conceding
Until now
There must be some other way out

Go on alone, because I won’t follow
But this isn’t giving up no this is letting go
Out with the old dreams I’ve borrowed
The path I carve from here on out will be my own
A path to take me home

(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)

The wind died
The whole world ceased to move
Now so quiet
Her beating heart became a boom
We locked eyes
For just a moment or two
She asked why
I said “I don’t know why,
I just know”

The wind died
The whole world ceased to move
Now so quiet
Her beating heart became a boom
We locked eyes
For just a moment or two
She asked why
I said “I don’t know why
I just know
I just know”

Go on alone, ’cause I won’t follow
This isn’t giving up, no this is letting go
I made most of all this sorrow
I tried to brave this discontent, but now I’m through
I’m letting go of you.

This is letting go
This is letting go

Once upon a time I could take anything, anything.

One More Time


One More Time – Reckless Love

Now there’s an open road
Baby I’ve got to go ’cause I’ve been here for far too long
We had our good times I know but baby I’m gettin’ old
And the winters are far too cold for rock n’ roll

We were never the perfect couple
We were never nothin’ but trouble

We gotta do it one more time
One night together
One more time, one crazy ride
One more time, on one another
One more time we say goodbye
I can’t stay with you forever
Baby you’re the best fun that I’ve had
So one more time one night together
Make it mad!

Now it’s the time to leave, didn’t we both agree
There’s a lot more for us to do and the world to see (Yeah, didn’t we?!)
Free, the feeling of great relief when I hear the sound of my wheels
I’ve set myself free again back on the streets

We were never the perfect couple
We were never nothin’ but trouble

We gotta do it one more time!
One night together
One more time, One crazy ride
One more time , On one another
One more time we say goodbye
I can’t stay with you forever
Baby you’re the best fun that I’ve had
So one more time one night together
Make it mad!

Make it mad!

We were never the perfect couple
We were never nothin’ but trouble

We gotta do it one more time!
One night together
One more time, One crazy ride
One more time , On one another
One more time we say goodbye
I can’t stay with you forever
Baby you’re the best fun that I’ve had
So one more time one night together
Make it mad!

The Westener


The Westener – Falling In Reverse

I was born one morning in December on the coldest day abandoned by my
Mother and my father I was raised. my father raised my brother and I with a
Stubborn heart. my mother left me her good looks and not much else.

Well I spend most of my teenage years searching for a love, I could not
Find it anywhere so I turned to drugs, and after all the smoke had cleared
And it was said and done, I found myself addicted by the age of 21

I tell the truth. I’ve been beaten I’ve been bruised I was left for dead
As well, I was wrongfully accused you left me locked inside a cell.

I’ve been cheated I’ve been sued but I have lived to tell, the more you
Kept me when I’m down the more it truly helps.

I feel the madness creeping slowly, loved by many I’m still lonely, payed
The price for your mistake, the music died the day I walked away.

No, I wont let you in, not this time my friend, you know that I’m better
In the end. No, you wont take my pride, I’ll keep my head held high. cause
I know that I’m better in the end.

Woaaah, I know you’re jealous and you wish you could be me, I’m so smart
And clever with my lyrics can’t you see? there’s nobody better in this
Music industry. and in case you think you are, go ahead, give me a ring!
Woaaah

I’ve just had my purple heart
From all these fucking wounds. lacerations to my ego, pride that I consume.
and in your final hours, when you are looking back, you’ll find that I’m
The best at what I do and that’s a fact.

No, I wont let you in, not this time my friend, you know that I’m better
In the end. No, you wont take my pride, I’ll keep my head held high. cause
I know that I’m better in the end. and I’ll I
Got to say (do do do do do do do do, bah bah bah da, do do do do do do do
Do, la la la la la la)

Take it or leave it but you best believe me it’s true. there’s all the
Stinging of wisdom and thinking I’m through, I’ll look better than you.

No, I wont let you in, not this time my friend, you know that I’m better
In the end. No, you wont take my pride, I’ll keep my head held high. cause
I know that I’m better in the end. in the end.
(Do do do do do do do do, bah bah bah da, do do do do do do do do, la la la
La la la)

Break Your Little Heart


Break Your Little Heart – All Time Low

Wide awake, my mistake
So predictable
You were fake, I was great
Nothing personal

I’m walking
Who’s laughing now?
(Who’s laughing, who’s laughing now?)
I’m wasted, wasting time
You talk for hours
But you’re wasting lines
A pretty face but the chase
Ain’t worth the prize

I’m gonna break your little heart
Watch you take the fall
Laughing all the way to the hospital
‘Cause there’s nothing surgery can do
When I break your little heart in two
I’m gonna break your little heart in two

Party queen, cause a scene
So ridiculous
Little dress, maybe less
So conspicuous

You’re falling
Who’s crashing now?
(Who’s crashing, who’s crashing now?)
I’m wasted, wasting time
I’m moving on
But you’re left behind
A pretty face with the chace
Ain’t worth the price

I’m gonna break your little heart
Watch you take the fall
Laughing all the way to the hospital
‘Cause there’s nothing surgery can do
I’m gonna break your little heart
Show you to the door
Sew yourself shut
Now you’re begging for more
‘Cause there’s nothing surgery can do
When I break your little heart in two

Don’t be so sentimental, no
This is love is accidental, so
Give it up
This was never meant to be
More than a memory for you

I’m gonna break your little heart
Watch you take the fall
Laughing all the way to the hospital
‘Cause there’s nothing surgery can do
(When I break your little heart in two)
I’m gonna break your little heart
Show you to the door
Sew yourself shut
Now you’re begging for more
‘Cause there’s nothing surgery can do
When I break your little heart in two

Tell Me Im A Wreck


Tell Me Im A Wreck – Every Avenue

I could have been easier on you
I could have been all you held on to
I know I wasn’t fair
I tried my best to care
About you
(About you)

I know I could have been a better man
I always had to have the upper hand
I’m struggling to see
The better side of me
But I can’t
Take all your jabs and taunts
You’re pointing out
My every fault
And you wonder why I walked away

When you tell me I’m a wreck
You say that I’m a mess
How could you expect anything less
(Expect anything less)
You latched onto me
Then cried I strung you along

I told you when you asked
I knew this wouldn’t last
At least I could be honest about that
(Honest about that)
And now you’re tellin’ everyone
How I only did you wrong

I guess you never knew me at all

Remember on my 21st birthday
You took me where we went on our first date
We stayed till closing time
After four glasses of wine
You started with the pointless argument
You said that I forgot to compliment
The dress you wore that night
That I’ve seen a thousand times

But I think
We just want different things
I want space
You want a diamond ring
Whatever made you think we were meant to be?

When you tell me I’m a wreck
You say that I’m a mess
How could you expect anything less
(Expect anything less)
You latched onto me
Then cried I strung you along
(Cried I strung you along)

I told you when you asked
I knew this wouldn’t last
At least I could be honest about that
(Honest about that)
And now you’re tellin’ everyone
How I only did you wrong
(How I only did you wrong)

I guess you never knew me at all

You tell me I’m a wreck
You say that I’m a mess
How could you expect anything less

When you tell me I’m a wreck
You say that I’m a mess
How could you expect anything less
(Expect anything less)
You latched onto me
Then cried I strung you along
(Cried I strung you along)

I told you when you asked
I knew this wouldn’t last
At least I could be honest about that
(Honest about that)
And now you’re tellin’ everyone
How I only did you wrong
(How I only did you wrong)

Still I see you standing there
Waiting round for me to fall
(Waiting round for me to fall)
Girl you must be crazy
Still believing you and me belong

I guess you never knew me at all

23


23 – Jimmy Eat World

I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I’m still driving away
And I’m sorry every day
I won’t always love these selfish things
I won’t always live…
Not stopping…

It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you

You’ll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I’m here I’m now I’m ready
Holding on tight
Don’t give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

Amazing still it seems
I’ll be 23
I won’t always love what I’ll never have
I won’t always live in my regrets

You’ll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I’m here I’m now I’m ready
Holding on tight
Don’t give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

You’ll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I’m here I’m now I’m ready
Holding on tight
Don’t give away the end
The one thing that stays mine…

Starlight


Starlight – Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy

(feat. Myles Kennedy)
In the distance light years from tomorrow
Far beyond yesterday
She is watching, heart aching with sorrow
She is broken, as she waits
Hoping when all is said and done we can learn to love and be as one

[Chorus]
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we’re gonna find a place where we belong (where we belong)
And so you know, we’ll never shine alone

There are shadows sleeping on the horizon
Leave us scared and so afraid
As the fall out of a world divided
It brings her tears and so much pain
And so we take cover from the dark
Hoping to find where we can start

[Chorus]
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we’re gonna find a place where we belong (where we belong)
And so you know, you’ll never shine alone
Starlight we’ll find a place where we belong, we belong

You will see when the mountains fall and turn to dust
There’s one thing that won’t change
I believe there’s something within each of us that always stays
That will always remain as long as love never fades

[Chorus]
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don’t you cry we’re gonna find a place where we belong (where we belong)
And so you know, you’ll never shine alone
Starlight we’ll find a place where we belong (we belong)

She is watching, heart aching with sorrow
She is broken is,as she waits
