Who We Are, Come What May Part II
Friends, Lovers Or Nothing – John Mayer (Giles)
“You whisper ‘come on over’
Cause you’re two drinks in
In the morning I will say goodbye again.”
Another night, and you’re drinking again. It seemed like a good idea at the time, and this seems like an equally good one. I’ll come on over for the night. We can’t be friends, we’ll never be friends. We’ve had too much together for that. I want you, though, still. In the morning I’ll have to leave, but let’s not worry about that for now.
Summer Forgive Me - British India (Ethan)
“I’m gonna wait until it’s only you and I
And if I get caught I’ll deny, deny, deny
Breathe in the night, you can call me anything you like
Stupid but true, I’ll still do anything for you.
Doesn’t matter what you want. Doesn’t matter what I want. I can’t control my feelings, any more than I can stop myself from breathing. I’ll always say something to let you down, I can’t seem to help myself, but Gods, I’d still give you the world.
Out Of Bounds – Amanda Marshall (Giles)
“And every day’s another wrong to rectify
I dream about a stranger’s touch
And voices in my head I cannot hush
And every night’s a hunger I can’t satisfy
I remember you, and I miss you. I dream of you at night, wish you were there with me. I regret hurting you, because I know I did wrong by you. If leaving was the only way for both of us to survive, then I’m glad I did it. But I know I’ll never make it up to you.
If You Weren’t Leaving Me (Ethan)
“We’ll drink in the bar, we’ll walk in the park
We’ll meet at the end, and again at the start
And we’ll look for the light when the daytime is gone
Then we’ll run out of breath, take the whole world on”
We’ll look for one thing inside another. I look for you in the darkness, when you’re in the light now. I know that, but I still find myself looking for you. Our lives are a circle, one that always brings us back to one another, eventually. You’re leaving, but we’ll get there again.
The High Road – Three Days Grace (Giles)
“There are times I stayed alive for you
There are times I would have died for you
There are times it didn’t matter at all”
I would have done anything for you, but you kept on pulling me under. If I didn’t get away, then I would have drowned. You showed me the wild side of life, and now I know what to look out for. If you can’t forgive me, then I can’t forgive myself, but I’ll still be the stronger person and walk away.
You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You’re Drunk – Pet Shop Boys (Ethan)
“What’s the meaning when you speak with so much feeling?
Is it over when you’re sober, is it junk?
You only tell me you love you when you’re drunk”
Another beer, and you fall into my bed again. I love you, that’s what you always tell me at these times. I love you. It breaks my heart to hear it, because I know you won’t remember saying it in the morning. I know that you mean it, but apparently it doesn’t mean all that much to you. Or is it that it means too much?
Impossible – Shontelle (Giles)
“All we had is gone now
Tell them I was happy and my heart is broken
All my scars are open
Tell them what I hoped would be impossible”
We tried, didn’t we? I wanted you by my side, for the rest of my life. I wanted it to work, even with what everyone else said, that you were too fast, too violent, that you could never be tamed. I knew I couldn’t gentle you, so I went with you. For a while I was even happy. But everyone else was right.
Chalk Outline – Three Days Grace (Ethan)
“I’ve been cursed, I’ve been crossed
I’ve been beaten by the ones that get me off
I’ve been cut, I’ve been opened up
I’ve been shattered by the ones I thought I loved.”
You’ll regret it. When you want me, and I’m not there any more, yeah, you’ll regret it. When you left you killed a part of me, and I won’t recover from that. You just left. We were friends, once. Where did we go wrong?
Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough – Patty Smith (Giles)
“There’s a danger in loving somebody too much
And it’s sad when you know it’s your heart you can’t trust
There’s a reason why people don’t stay where they are
Baby, sometimes love just ain’t enough.”
I love you. I love you. But it would take more than love to save the mess that us has become.
Brothers On A Hotel Bed – Death Cab for Cutie(Both)
“But these wrinkles masterfully disguise the youthful boy below
Who turned away and saw something he was not looking for
Both a beginning and an end”
We’ve changed. We’re older, hopefully a little wiser. And everything has changed. It had to. Anything that can be salvaged is something to be grateful for.
Goodbye To You – Michelle Branch (Giles)
“And when the stars fall
I will lie awake
You’re my shooting star”
I’m here, and here is where I belong. I know that you’re out there somewhere, doing what you do best. You give me a reason to live, even though you’re not here with me. I lie in the dark and picture you streaking through life, beautiful and on fire, the way that I remember you from the start, and it feels a little easier to breath.
