"I woke the other day
And saw my world has changed
The past is over but tomorrow’s wishful thinking
I can’t hold onto what’s been done
I can’t grab onto what’s to come
And I’m just wishing I could stop"
- The Offspring, “Can’t Repeat”
"Baby’s all dressed up, with nowhere to go
That’s the little story of the girl you know"
- Lana Del Rey, “Carmen”
"I’m traveling from coast to coast
My theory isn’t perfect
But it’s close"
- Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Wet Sand”
"All the games you played
The promises you made
Couldn’t finish what you started
Only darkness still remains"
- Hey Monday, “Candles”
"And so I run now to the things they said could restore me
Restore life the way it should be"
- Young The Giant, “Cough Syrup”
"I just like to dream
It’s so strange
The way our paths have crossed
How we were brought together
It’s written in the stars it seems"
- Jem, “Flying High”
"I came this way, all this way, just to say
This time won’t you save me"
- Nicki Minaj, “Save Me”
"I want to pull it apart and put it back together
I want to relive all my adolescent dreams
Inspired by true events on movie screens
I am a one man wrecking machine"
- Guster, “One Man Wrecking Machine”
"This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don’t know how it got so bad
Sometimes it’s so crazy
That nothing can save me
But it’s the only thing that I have"
- Sum 41, “Pieces”
I wanna have the same last dream again
The one where I wake up and I’m alive
Just as the four walls close me within
My eyes are opened up with pure sunlight
I’m the first to know
My dearest friends
Even if your hope has burned with time
Anything that’s dead shall be re-grown
And your vicious pain, your warning sign
You will be fine.
- Angels and Airwaves, “The Adventure”
